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.

Date of Stay:

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.

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:

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.

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

This park gives discounts for Good Sam and Passport America, so we only paid $16 per night. There are two parks here - an RV and a Motor Home. Most seem to be here full time. The sites are close together, have 30 & 50 amps, pets are welcome, Cable TV, wireless Internet, and a swimming pool. It is very close to Texas A & M University and the Presidential Library of George H. Bush. Office is hard to find. As we entered we were faced with excessive speed bumps, but the owner met us and showed us our site. We would stay here again when in the area. Sites were large. WI-FI is so weak that it was unusable. We stayed three nights and would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Office closed when we arrived and is not open on Sunday or Monday. We arrived on a Saturday for 4 nights and registered on Tuesday. We used 3 nights of Passport America for $15./night. Fourth night was 25% off for $22.50. Sites are long pull through with gravel pads and small concrete pad. Site for the RV was below the sewer connection so had to raise hose to drain, Power and water pressure is good. There is a major problems with large dogs roaming or being walked with no one picking up. I had to clean up my site and dogs continued to use my site for their doing their job but I never saw them. Campground is filled with mobile homes and RV's that people full time in; only one other camper came in on an overnighter. Close to NASA, Kemah and Galveston. Also close to friends and that is why we picked this location. No cable with OTA proving a number of stations with about half of them Hispanic or religious stations. Would have been a plus for cable but at the rates we paid, we got a good value. Advertised WiFi but my computer never picked up a broadcast. We camped here with a 5th wheel and would probably stay again but only because of the location we needed.

Very nice well kept and clean park. Almost in the center of Austin, very easy to get to and near the Johnson library and university. Long perfectly level sites with concrete pads and grassy area. Hook ups are off set so sewer from neighbor is away from your outdoor area which is a nice touch. Roads are a little narrow and concrete, but did not have an issue getting into site. Sites are very wide and lots of outdoor room. Water and power was very good. Passport America park and 4 nights were $106 dollars, even though were arrived on a Saturday. Good and free Wi-Fi that is not password protected. Called 4 days before arrival and was told that I had the last available site. Strangely enough, there is a "No Vacancy" sign even though sites are available. I would call before going to this park. Curb side trash pick up and nice dog area. Would stay here again.

Nice park. Next to highway, but there was no noise. Campground is very nice with average size spaces. Asphalt sites that needed a little leveling for side to side. Cable and WI-FI are available at extra cost of $3.00 per day. I have an issue with campgrounds that charge extra for these items. Office closes at 5:00 and not open on Sundays. Box had information on available sites and how to register the following day. We stayed for 5 nights for $178 which included cable only, as I have my own Wi-Fi. We would stay here again,

Made reservations by internet but received no response. When I called to confirm reservations, they had to check their e-mail which had not been done in the 2 days since I had made reservations. Check in was OK, and we were escorted to our site which was dirt and wet from rain. Plugged in, set up and turned the A/C on. After 20 minutes we lost all power. Called the office and owner showed up. Breaker at pedestal had not tripped nor had the main breaker. Owner unable to determine cause but when he opened the breaker box on the pole, there was the biggest mess of wires I had ever seen. Owner showed me another site and offered it to me but I would have had to pull in opposite the normal way and my truck would have driven into a muddy area. Afraid of getting stuck I declined and decided to move to another campground. Owner was very apologetic and issued a refund without any issue. Appeared that all the guests were long term and sites were all dirt with little grass and broken picnic tables. I don't ask for a lot from campground owners. Just a decent place to park while visiting areas but this failed to fulfill even my basic needs. I will not visit this campground again.

Little to like about this park and much to dislike. 1) Although they have installed more Wi-Fi towers, signal is weak. 2) Cable connection next to our site is still out of service after a year and one must piggyback onto another site. 3) 50 amp breaker does not work and management is indifferent. 4) 30 amp power is low and is barely within the safe range with A/C and TV on. 5) Roads need work and the alternate exit road is a bone jarring, rig shaking, rut filled joke. No work has been done to improve in the 4 years friends have been wintering here. 6) Empty sites are kept mowed but occupied sites by winter visitors is not. Noticed some returnees have brought their own lawn mowers. 7) Advertised as member of Good Sam and other discount clubs, but they DO NOT offer a discount. Full rates are $32 per night and $390 for 2 weeks. $345./month but cable and electric are not included. 8) Sites are adequate in width but rigs longer than 32' do not have enough room to park without getting very close to your rig at an angle. 9) Entry is tight but manageable and one must be careful of dumpster when making first turn into sites. Not enough dumpsters and ones available are often full. 10) Laundry is small and machines are old.

Entering this park is a challenge because of the steep entry. Lots of evidence where rigs scrapped hard upon entering. Parking to register is a surprise because you have to make a hard left turn to park instead of the normal straight on. Although the owners were very friendly I was disgusted with pets from the permanent residents dogs leaving their "deposits" at my site. I stepped in dog waste 3 times in 2 days. Two sites away was a female cat with 8 kittens roaming, and another site that had 5 puppies. Showers and restrooms were not cleaned daily. Lots of small trash containers but they were not emptied daily. Our trash can was overturned by an animal and I had to clean it up during set up. Wi-Fi was poor and I kept dropping off line. Use after dark was impossible. Power was adequate and cable TV offered a lot of channels. Most of the sites were occupied by permanent residents. Friend and I were the only non-residents for 8 nights. We stayed here because there were no vacancies at the first 3 campgrounds I called. There was no view of water because of the steep drop off going out and trees. Our site was just long enough to park our 32' rig. Getting into the site was a challenge because of the trees and they were in the way of opening our slides. We were unable to open our awning. There is a "Cajun" restaurant on site that was run by a resident. Having my doubts about Cajun food as I had lived for 30 years in Louisiana and can cook as well as most Cajuns, I was very surprised at the food. Four of us ate different meals. The crab casserole and crawfish etouffe' was very good. The gumbo was as good as any I have eaten and I have eaten a lot. The boudin was exceptional. All the seafood is from Louisiana and fresh. The restaurant owner takes a trip to south La. to get the seafood. A trip to the "Crazy Cajun Citchen" (spelling of the restaurant is correct) would be worth a trip. Eating on site is outside and they offer take-outs.

After staying at a park in Eureka Springs last year with poor Wi-Fi and no TV signal or cable TV, we decided to try this park. It is owned by the city of Berryville. It has huge, long pull throughs. Back ins are reserved for long term residents and there were only 2 of them. Lots of grass between sites that are hard packed gravel and drains well after rain. Pull throughs were relatively level and hookups are between opposing rigs. Parking is offset so there is lots of distance between rigs. Power is very good and water pressure is high so I used a regulator. Very good cable TV and when I called for reservations, I was told that it would not be necessary. When I asked about Wi-Fi on the phone and after arriving, I was told that the only guarantee of access would be at the office. I am over 400' from the office and the middle of the campground. Signal is fair with no trouble staying on line and response is good. Wal-Mart is only 2-3 miles away. If you stay here, be sure to visit the gun museum at the town square. If the office is unoccupied or if the campground host is not around, park where ever you want. They will come along to receive your money. Cash and checks only.
