Great Campground with some elbow room around sites. Friendly Gate Keepers and Rangers now. Park has been renovated within the last couple of years. Full working restrooms and showers. Cleaning staff seems to keep it up nicely. Mowing was done only around camp sites at this time we were told due to the beautiful wildflowers being in full bloom. Staff told us after the next few weeks, they implement a full mow back to water and woods edge for the rest of the season. Most sites are easy back in spots. There are only 20 Full Hookup sites out of 66. The rest are water and electric only. Dump station is located in between the two camp areas. Only $4 for travelers not staying in Park. Only a couple of drive thru spots. However, most all of the sites we saw could handle large RV's. Ours is 40ft. There are 2 Boat ramps, 2 courtesy boat docks and 2 fishing docks. This is an Army Corp Park and not an RV Resort so as stated by a previous reviewer there are no extra frills. Just swimming (No Lifeguards), camping, fishing and boating. Rangers insist on lifejackets. They also have several double sites and two large group shelters sites for large camping groups of 8 RV's or 14 RV's in the same area. Singles cost from $16-$26, doubles cost $28-$42 & Group Shelters are $100 & $130. An enjoyable Memorial Day week. We camped at Copperas Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

A busy Winter Texan Park. 90% Canadians and very friendly folks. Local access to plenty of local stores, a Major Outlet Mall 5 min. away, 45 min . from Padre Island and of course 7 miles from Progresso, Mexico. You name it and it's a pretty good chance of being nearby. Great local fresh vegetables and lots of citrus. Dances appeared to be every week and a variety of music. Heated pool & Spa. An entire pool hall with 12 tables. 18 or 20 Shuffle courts. Sorry forgot to count. A club house for Darts, quilting and wood carving. A brand new laundromat on site. A card game, jig-saw puzzle and domino hall. New managers were a great couple. Craft shows and lots of Canadian entertainers as well as American. Some sites weren't level but, we're manageable. Medium to Big rigs. Not a lot available in the winter as it's a seniors Park and pretty full of winter folks. All sites are Full hookups and 50 amp. Service. Monthly and seasonal rates available. Also many Park Models on site. Looks like over 400 RV and mobile home sites. Secure gated Park at night. On-site management 24/7. Unfortunately lots of traffic noise. Dog park is small and self maintained by tenants. Most owners seem to be responsible. Very large dogs discouraged for long stays. We camped at Magic Valley Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Lots of shopping and entertainment all over the Rio Grande Valley. All within minutes of just about anywhere here. Very temperate climate for the winter. The Gulf activities are nearby as is Mexico. Friendly people just about everywhere.

Just a one night stay. Quiet Park along San Saba river. No amenities. Beat up washer and dryer on premises for use with donation. 30 amp sites with a few new 50 amp connections. Tent sites also available. Lots of grass burrs and rough sites. Muddy when rainy. No pads. We camped at Menard County RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Quiet area. Lazy river for fishing or floating behind dam. Hunting season is busy locally but not a lot to do in town. Local grocery store, hardware/farm supply stores, propane supplier, two auto parts stores, County run golf course, Presidio historical site, 3 gas stations, one Mexican restaurant and one home cooking restaurant is the limit of enterprise.
