We camped at Lake Somerville State Park Birch Creek Unit in Park Host site 95. Officially, the park was still closed due to flooding, but they granted us a 2 night stay so we could complete our goal of camping at every Texas State Park with water and electric RV sites!. The staff was fantastic and welcoming. Most of the trails were closed, but the ones that were open to hiking were very good. They had nesting eagles in the park, but we did not see one. We will return when the flooding subsides.

We camped at Goose Island State Park near Rockport, TX in site 152 Wooded Area with 30A electric and water service. Our site was very private. The Bayside sites have great views of the ocean, but no privacy. The sites in the Wooded Area are great, but can be a challenge backing in with large RV's, ours is a 37' 5th wheel. The office can suggest appropriate sites. Great park, definitely check it out.

We camped in site 57 at Texana Park & Campground near Edna, TX. It is a 50A, water and sewer site. Very private site with view of lake. Very good hiking trails. The campsites are all spacious and some have great lake access.

We camped in site 143 with 50A electric and water at Huntsville State Park near Huntsville, TX in the Prairie Branch Loop in December 2016. Beautiful private site with lakeview. Pad was short for our 37' 5th wheel but parked diagonally across site and it worked great. The sites in Raven Hill Loop with full hook-ups are pull throughs and crowded. The other water/electric loop, Coloneh Camping Area, have many sites that are unlevel front to back. Might be tough for motor homes. Beautiful park. Will definitely return.

We camped in the Cooks Ferry Camping Area at Fairfield Lake State Park in site 69. The Cooks Ferry Loop (sites 37-100) was recently renovated. New site pads and roads. Very nice. Spacious sites, many with lake view and access. Pull through and back-in sites available. The Post Oak Camping Area (sites 101-135) was closed for the winter. That loop has not been updated. The Springfield Camping Area (sites 1-36) are water only and primarily for tent campers. The lake was full and beautiful. Very good hiking trails. 2 boat ramps and fishing docks. This park is a real hidden gem.

Nice commercial campground on the Llano River. All sites are full hookups (water, 50A electric, sewer and cable TV). New clubhouse has a full kitchen, dining room, laundry room, 3 bathrooms with showers and exercise room. Friendly staff. Quiet park. Daily rate $30, monthly $325. Many winter fulltime RV's. Good location to visit Llano, Fredericksburg and Enchanted Rock.

We camped at Lost Maples State Natural Area in site 15. All sites are water and 30A electric. Central dump station. Great hiking trails, some strenuous. Beautiful park. RV sites are a bit narrow and the asphault pads are not perfectly level. We had site 15 which is very private and good for large RV's. Only a few sites are too small for 30+' RV's, the park office will give you recommendations for sites. Covered picnic tables and fire rings at all sites. No cell coverage in the park. WiFi available at park office.

We camped at site 9 (water, 50A electric and sewer) in Turkey Flat Campground at Arrowhead State Park. Great site with large concrete pads. Very nice layout. Sites 1-20 in Turkey Flat Campground are full hook-up. Sites 21-40 are water and electric. Turkey Flat was recently renovated. The other two camping loops are rough and I would not advise. The camp host collects the camping fee if paying cash or check. I paying with credit card must go to park office.

We camped in site 57 (water and 30A electric) at Pedernales Falls State Park. Many sites can accommodate large RV's, but a few are too small. Beautiful park. Great hiking and swimming. Scenic views. Park staff and hosts were great. Will definitely return.

Date of Stay:

We were in 50A site #15. Best site for shade in camping loop. Highly recommend. The rocks, climbing and hiking are outstanding. They have very specific rules for park use.

Date of Stay:

We were in site 15 (water and 50A electric) at Krause Springs. The RV area is nothing special, but the springs are awesome. Interior roads very rough. Not suitable for low ground clearance RV's. Significant front to back cant at campsites. Could be problematic for motorhomes.

We camped in site 9 (water and 30A electric) at Loyd Park. Urban park, but feels like you are not near a city. All sites are 30A electric and water. A few sites have sewer. $10 per vehicle per day fee in addition to campsite fee. We have camped here many times.
