Oasis RV Resort – Amarillo, TX
The Oasis RV Resort is located on I-40, just on the West side of Amarillo, off Arnot Road. The resort is new. The sites are large, spacious, and well equipped. For an overnight stay the park would seem like a good choice. But for long stays, or if you want any amenities like a club house, or swimming pool, or hot tub, or internet that works, then you should choose elsewhere.
The most striking thing you see when you enter the gates is that no one is here. There are 188 sites, and currently 16 are filled. The other parks in Amarillo, I know because I just checked them, are filled almost to capacity.
We came here on September 1st, intending to stay until January 15th. We chose this park because of the large sites. Since we were going to stay for several months, we were directed to a quiet back in site. It was perfect for us.
The first thing I noticed was that large dogs; Airdales, Rottweilers; Sheppards, were running free. There was a large amount of dog droppings everywhere. The pool was cold. The reason, we were told, was the propane tank utilized to heat the pool was empty. The hot tub was likewise cold. Only after months here, did the manager offer to heat the hot tub, upon request. The club house is locked. If you can catch the manager you may get it opened, but it is locked.
To make it through the winter comfortably, we asked the manager about having a propane tank delivered. A large 150 gallon tank. Other long term residents had them. The manager directed us to a local propane supplier. We had a tank delivered, installed, and a week later, filled. (The propane tank cannot be delivered full, for safety reasons.) The propane supplier came to fill the park’s tanks, then filled our tank.
The next day the manager told us we had to relocate to another site. We were on the same electrical circuit as the Oasis RV sign, and they wanted to see how much electricity the sign was using. Also, they wanted all RV’s in one central area. Oh, except some 5 RV’s that have been here “long term,” they can stay where they are.
What? Now that is just plain faulty reasoning. We had winterized our coach, and had propane delivered, and they just suddenly came up with that decision? One day after they directed the propane company to fill our tank?
We have been cleaning up around this park. We have helped out when needed. We are not hard to get along with. We pick up after our dogs, and the owner’s dog. This was just a slap in the face. So we are moving to another Park. A park that had only one site open, and I was able to snatch it up.
I cannot recommend this park to anyone, as there is no way to know what kind of problems you will encounter.
