This campground is 5 miles off of main highway but easy to locate. Most sites for overnighters is back in but easy access to site. We were placed in a back in with the river showing outside our rear window. When checking in I saw the price chart for other sites were $35.00. When asked they said they were the only ones available so the rate was $45.00. Good Sam discount but taxes brought it back to 45.00. There were 4-5 $35.00 that went unfilled overnight. Makes me wonder if they did this on purpose. Our site had 30 amp only and there were NO breakers to turn power off and own. Power was adequate. There is a restaurant for breakfast on site open from 7:00-2:00 pm. Wi-Fi was good and a large number of cable channels available. All hookups were in center of sites and easy to access. Be very careful when entering park as a fence juts out and easy to hit your rig. Because of the fence the entrance is narrow. Turns are a little tight because they have placed large boulders on the roads that are low and easy to hit.

We stayed in site 21. Park is mostly permanent residents but their sites were neat, tidy and others were friendly. This is about the most level sites I have ever stayed in. Front to back and side to side were perfectly level. When making reservations I asked about Wi-Fi and they said yes. When checking in I asked about Wi-Fi and they said yes. At my site there was no Wi-Fi. Signal showed when I tried to log in but was unable to establish a connection. When speaking to owners they were indifferent. Their website stated that they were Passport America members but would not give the discount. Sites were staggered which placed you away from neighbors sewer but distance is so far that 2 hoses were needed. I used the 50 amp connection reduced to 30 amp because the weather was mild and we were staying one night. Voltage was barely 110 volts when AC and nothing else was running. I would stay here again but I dislike campgrounds that do not fulfill promises. The campground had huge sites but many were being narrowed to accommodate more travelers. TV is over the air with few stations.

Site was very unlevel and had to use 4" blocks to get level within acceptable range and rig was not perfectly level. Front to back was great. We stayed here because it was convenient to San Antonio, New Braunfels and San Marcos. Water required 2 hoses as did sewer. Sewer connection was at small concrete pad and such that although I could add my threaded adapter the hose barely connected. Layout such as this makes it very easy to cause connection to leak. Park is mostly with full time trailers who had lots of stuff outside. Didn't bother me but other things did. Rate of $39.00/night is high for what you receive. We stayed 7 nights at the $275.00 weekly rate. Monthly power is a whopping $450. No discounts. Although there was signs for Good Sam and Passport America they no longer participate. Wifi had lots of signals but dropped off line quite often. Enough to cause one to be frustrated. Permanent residents told me that has been the case forever. Management was unconcerned about Wifi but with many permanent residents and over 240 sites they have no incentive to improve. Cable is advertised but it is Direct TV and only 17 channels available. If you stay here entrance has a speed bump that IS NOT painted for identification although there is a small yellow post and sign on the right when entering. Additional unmarked speed bumps throughout park. Sites were extremely wide and parking room is good. I will not stay here again.

Huge park with mostly pull through and concrete streets. Security gate closes at night but you are given a code.Packed gravel and no grass. Perfectly level sites with good water, power and sewer locations. We have stayed here before when traveling south and is easy access and very large sites and long pull through. We were able to level and remain hooked up for the night. WIFI was good and strong as was the Verizon signal. Cable is advertised BUT you must ask for and hook up a box inside your rig. It comes with a cable and remote and must be returned when leaving. It hooks between the cable outlet and cable inlet behind the TV. You must then hook up cable from the power pedestal to your cable inlet. Reception was good but that is a little inconvenient. We stayed in a fifth wheel and will stay here again.

This park is huge and opened in January 2016. This owner knows how to build a park. There are 3 sections. We stayed in the back section because of price and those sites are easy back in.. All sections have huge concrete pads for the Rv and tow vehicle. Large grassy area in back of camper but areas not with concrete are small crushed stone that will not get muddy if rain. It includes water, power, wi-fi but no sewer. The rest and larger part of the park includes everything. Sites in this area and rest of park are angled and very wide. Sewer is in middle of sites but because of size and angle you will not have an issue with neighbors sewer being close to you. There is two pricing schedules in rest of park with highest being $50./night. There is a separate charge for sewer. Each site has a light on the pedestal but sites are large enough that the light will not bother This is truly a resort with large play areas for kids, pool, putting green and 9 hole course. Open pavilion and BBQ grills and meeting room, propane, air and dump station. Huge, private and immaculate showers, laundry, pool and game room, horse shoes, pool table, fire rings, picnic tables and many other entertainment games. One of the best parks we have stayed in but I have 3 issues: 1) Odd pricing with sewer costs added on. This park is on a private sewer system so their cost is higher. 2) Although advertised, I was not able to get wi-fi in the back. Owner was very polite and explained that he knew of issues but had workers out to continue to resolve the. We spent 2 nights here and I know that they were out on 3 occasions and discovered that the wi-fi issues was caused by inconsistent power. A battery back up system would be installed that solve that problem. 3) No cable. At $25./night in the back is acceptable but when you are charging upwards of $50/night, in my opinion is there should be cable. We camped here in a fifth wheel and will make it our annual stopping point in the future.

Have stayed in this park several times on a trip to Branson. As others have said the owner was a grouch and seemed disinterested in customers. It is under new management by a young couple. The campground is clean and we were assigned the same spot we usually stayed in. The owner assisted us in parking and showed us the hookups. I used a 2 x 10 to level one side and had to unhook because I could not level front to back although if I worked at it, I may have been level enough to remained hooked. Sites were all hard packed gravel with little to no grass. Cable was good as was water pressure and electrical. Many full time residents but their sites was neat and tidy. There is a larger area at a lower level that had many more full time residents. There is a grill at the sight for cooking outdoor and trash is left at the campsite and picked up by the owners. We did not use any of the facilities. Rates were $40.00 per night with an additional 10% or so added for tax. The rate of $40 is not a good value for an overnight stay. We stayed here in a 36' fifth wheel and will stay here again when traveling north.

.This park has 68 sites not 37. Has a nice pool that many people were enjoying. This park are all back ins that give you a view of a small pond or a canal. Small kayaks are provided for youth to use. Has a playground. Sites are huge. Depth close to 150 feet and widths very wide so you are away from your neighbors sewer. Some sewer hook ups were at ground level some were high enough so one would have to lift the hose to drain. Staff is very friendly almost to a fault. Cable and WiFi are advertised but when I asked about WiFi they smiled and said it was only available at office, WiFi provided has no password but the campground also has secured WiFi but you are not given a password. There are lights at each power pedestal which is a nice touch. My site and the one next to me had burnt out bulbs. I was told that it was O.K. to rob a bulb from another site. I could not get the bulb covers off to replace a bulb. There is some overhead lighting but it is dark at night. Cable-Advertised but we had continuing problems with it dropping off line to the point that it was useless. Cable was out for the entire row of 20 campers. The owner came over and replaced the cable connection on the post. We had cable for several hours. When I told them the cable was out again they smiled and said they would attend to it. No one showed up and when I again brought up the cable they said :"Maybe we should call the cable company." The site next to me was occupied by a permanent resident who was very nice. She said the cable had been out almost 2 weeks. Park was well kept and clean. Permanent resident site were clean and tidy. Rates are $40./night with NO discounts. They gave me the weekly rate of $235.00 as we were staying 6 nights.

Passport rate $21.65. $40.00 standard rate seems high considering it is still a work in progress. Easy in-out. Big rig friendly, entry road is concrete. Mostly open with some trees to nestle under. Sites are unlevel gravel with concrete pedestals between, not spacious but perfect for our overnight needs. We were barely able to get level enough to remain hooked up. Like the park a lot but is over-priced. Passport America makes it a good value. Will not come back unless things improve. Check in was easy and we where told to pick any spot we wanted which was O.K. with us. This is a huge park with most sites empty. WIFi and cable is advertised but WiFi dropped off enough times to where it became frustrating. After performing a scan for available channels only music channels showed up. After talking to to the staff we learned that that the new cable system required a box. They offered to provide and hook up a box but we decided to use OTA instead but found that only a couple of channels were available because of the distance from the TV stations. No map, guidelines or brochures were provided and I had to go back to the office to get the WiFi code. Many small things led to us being disappointed with the experience we had here.

Neat park. Friendly owners. Passport America so the 1 night was $16.50. Good power and water. Hookups were at middle of site and staggered so your neighbors hookups were not outside your door. External light at hookups and good lighting throughout park. Long pull through so were were able to get into site with 34' 5th wheel. If I had one change to make it would be to make the streets a little wider so getting into and out of sites were easier. Customers are urged to park in from of office if they have more than 1 vehicle but that is not followed. Many construction workers but their rigs are neat and areas around are kept tidy. We were able to get level without unhooking. Adequate room between sites for slides and awnings. We would stay here again.

Gravel parking lot with pull through's. Has new electrical and good power. There are cable hookups but the box is sealed and not for use for RV's/ Fair Wi-Fi at site but the Wi-Fi was off line for most of day three. Several of us went to the office to ask about reception but they said they could do nothing and refused to reset router. Motel rooms also available. Site was fairly level. Had an issue with billing as they charged my card for one night upon booking which is normal. When I checked my card site for pending transactions they charged me for one night too many. When I questioned that they said they would credit me upon checking out. Never had that happen before. Good location for visiting the west side of Big Bend and we stayed at their sister campground on the east side. This campground is the same place as Big Bend Motor Inn is actually in Study Butte not Terlingua. Park is nearly empty. Although this is a large park site are tight but pull through's allow easy entry. Entry into the motel registration from the East is very bumping because of ruts created by rainfall run off. We camped here in a fifth wheel and would stay again.

Nice place to spend the night when headed to other directions. Spent the night here on the way to Big Bend. Rate is P.A. Had cable, Wi-Fi. Good water and electric. Former motel that was run down and owners have rebuilt everything. Has lodges if traveling by car. Friendly owners and sites were good pull through s and level. Did not have to unhook. Would try the lodge if traveling by car instead of the nearby hotel. A hidden gem. We would stay here again. Had a common area that has seating and a large fireplace.
Date of Stay: May, 2015
Not much to add to previous reviews except that this campground is the same as Big Bend Resort and Adventures RV Park and Campground. There is no cell phone coverage and no cable. Store next to campground for breakfast.
Date of Stay: May, 2015
Large sites with pull through long enough for a 34 foot rig with parking either behind or in front of. Good utilities located in the middle of the site. Cable reception was good but you now have to have a box provided by the park. Could not get sound after hooking up but someone came to site to fix. Hooking up box is a little inconvenient and must be done behind the TV. This would be a problem it you do not have access behind your TV. Huge area between park and river with swings and play area for children. Park is quiet and well maintained. Some full time residents, but their area is neat and clean. We were in site 96 close to the road but did not hear traffic. This is a nice park and did not see issues with updates as one poster stated. Site is asphalt with picnic table. Some sites have fire pits. Very well maintained and friendly staff. They have an on-site park host available after hours. Cable is adequate at $4.00 and WiFi at $3.50 per day is excessive. I have problems with extra charges such as these and these extra charges bring to cost per day to $42.00. This is not a good value for most people.

Check in was easy and we received the Passport America discount of 2 nights and then Good Sam for 4 additional nights. Cost was just a little over $150.00 for 6 nights. Once we arrived unescorted at our site we found a level site with gravel and grass with a broken picnic cable. If it rains sites would be a muddy mess. After hooking up the power it tripped after 30 minutes and the electrical plug was very hot. I connected the power cord to the plug for the next site without issues. Sewer was shared between sites so anyone parked next to me would have to run hookups under their camper. If you have a towed unit you would have to drive through a low area that was used for drainage if it rained and the possibility of being stuck. River view was of a muddy part of the river. Roads was adequate. WIFi was O.K.. Number of full time residents but this is occurring more and more. Lots of junk at some of the sites. All sites at Premium area were back in at the river side but because of the muddy low water level it is no advantage. Regular sites were back in with adjacent site pull through into a muddy area. Water faucet was broken but they placed a diverter to share with your neighbor but it leaked. Cable did not have many channels and many were snowy. After switching to the neighbors hook up cable reception improved so this indicates that there is a cable issue. We had reservations for 6 nights but after pulling in for reservations I explained that we would only stay 1 night. They did not have an issue with this and gave me a 1 night Passport America for $15.00 Although this was a good rate and appreciated the price did not outweigh the poor condition of the park. We left the next morning for another park. We camped here in a fifth wheel.
Date of Stay: June, 2013
Just outside of Magnolia, Texas on HWY 1774 near the Texas Renaissance Festival grounds. Sites are long enough for 40' rigs with toads and very level. Some sites are concrete pads and a few have concrete patio areas. No picnic tables and little shade as trees are young and this is a new park. Owner appears to be putting profits into upgrades and this may eventually be a nice park. WI-FI had three towers and worked well. No cable. Only dumpster for trash is at park entrance and a short walk from sites. Water pressure was good. Electric is new and power was very good in the heat of the day when all the A/C's were running. Power pedestals have lights on top at night and is a nice touch. Sites are huge side-to-side and offset so swewer is not across from your door. Roads are narrow and dirt with gravel previously used but needs more gravel at this time. Roads are also a little narrow so one has to be careful pulling out. Fifteen miles from Navasota and Tomball. Magnolia has a variety of restaurants to fulfill more travelers needs. We were here to visit relatives in the area. We camped in a fifth wheel and would stay here again but cable needs to be installed and needs to become a member of a discount club to make the rates a little more attractive. We were able to access the Houston channels. We paid $30./night with no discounts offered. Did not use showers but they were clean and floors were tiled. Shower and flooring is at same level so all water flows to shower drain
