Date of Stay:

We camped in site 32 at Stephen F Austin State Park in March 2015. 30A electric, water and sewer at all the RV sites. Generous sites. Well maintained older facility. Great hiking trails. Many species of birds. Best sites for privacy and afternoon shade on outside of loop on east or north sides. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We camped in a full hookup site. Nice state park; we've camped there multiple times. They have two loops. One loop has 30 amps & water, all back-ins. Private sites, heavily wooded. The other loop has 50 amps & water and about half of those sites also have sewer. Larger sites for larger RVs. Some pull-throughs available. Popular park. Reservations for weekend dates advised.

Date of Stay:

We stayed 2 nights at Kimball Bend Park COE in March 2015 in site 31. All 35 sites have water and 50/30/20 electric and covered picnic tables. Several sites on the Brazos river, but those sites have no shade. The interior sites have good shade from giant, old pecans. Best sites for afternoon shade: 14, 10, 7. Site 34 has fair shade and a great view of the river. Site 31 is the most private site in the park with great view of the Brazos River. Family friendly park. Lots of kids. Some ruins from the old Chisolm trail in the campground. Popular park for fishermen. Boat ramp in the park. Closest grocery and Walmart in Cleburne 20 miles away. We would stay here again.

     

Midway Park COE

Waco, Texas

Date of Stay:

We stayed in site 24 at Midway Park COE near Woodway, Texas in February 2015. Very long gravel pad quite unlevel side to side. 30A electric, water, and sewer. Shaded site with many trees. Nice picnic table and fire ring. Less road noise than the 50A/sewer sites. Very friendly staff. Some 30A/water sites with great lake views. Was told they hope to upgrade some 30A sites to 50A. Would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We camped in the full hook-up loop. Most of the FHU sites are pull throughs. Heavily wooded with cleared underbrush. Very nice sites. We've state here many times and will return.

Date of Stay:

Cedar Hill State Park is gigantic urban park. 300+ sites. Expect road noise from nearby highway. Higher site and entrance fees than more rural Texas State Parks. We were in full hookup loop with concrete pads. We were in #149 which was very private. Some sites have good lake views.

Date of Stay:

Park has many sites. Some with views of the lake. We were in site 12, highly recommend. Concrete pads nice and level, but too narrow, stairs open over drop off. Most all sites are like this. Spacious sites with good privacy. Would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Mother Neff State Park has had major improvements. In January 2015 a new entrance and headquarters were opened. On 2/3/15 a new 20 site camping loop opened with full hook-ups (50/30/20 electric, water and sewer) at each site. Wide, level concrete pads for RV and large crushed granite patios at each site. Some of the nicest sites we've ever seen. The new area is at the opposite end of the park from the old camping area which was prone to flooding. The old sites re still there and can be used.

Date of Stay:

Beautiful old CCC state park with small fishing lake. The Cozy Circle area is the only loop that will accommodate 30+ foot RV's. Many of the sites have the picnic table opposite of door side. Many sites have good privacy. Heavily wooded, we could not extend awning fully. Dump station near Cozy Circle has tight turning radius. Not a problem but be aware. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

The 50A full hook-up loop is a wagon wheel and all back-ins. The 30A sites might pose problems for large RV's. Nearby restaurants and fuel. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Spacious pull through with full hookups. Best sites on outside of camping loop. Avoid the 30A sites on backside of park, that area is a gravel parking lot. Nearby restaurants and fuel. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We camped at Meridian State Park near Meridian, TX in site #3, full hook-up site for $25/night in December 2014. All FHU sites are pull throughs. Asphalt pads. Some are tight for large RV's. Do not take a large RV into the W/E sites, no turn around. Great hiking trails. Several old CCC structures. We would return.

Date of Stay:

Lake Casa Blanca International State Park is in Laredo, TX. We stayed in full hook-up site 102 for $21/night. Asphalt pads. Some sites have lake views and access. Walmart nearby. Nice park. Exit to park exits to main road traveling north. Requires a U turn a few miles away if needing to head south. Would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Falcon State Park near Falcon Heights, TX. We stayed in full hook-up loop site 215 for $18/night. Pull through sites. Utilities are on opposite side than most pull throughs so door opens to street. Nice hiking trails and views of lake. Lake is not accessible from camping area. Very secluded park. Miles from fuel and grocery.

Date of Stay:

Lake Corpus Christi State Park near Mathis, TX. We camped in site 39. The loop offers water, 50/30/20 electric and sewer, pull through sites at $20/night. Nice CCC structures in the park. Good shade. We would stay here again.
