Beautiful CG with wonderful views! We have a 22' TT and seems like most of the sites are smallish but we did see a GIANT Prevost navigating the roads OK. Most sites are either lake FRONT or lake VIEW. I'm sure it would be PACKED on weekends, but we drove up on a Monday and got a site with no reservations. A few pull-thru sites available. Quiet and peaceful, except for boat motors on the lake.

Date of Stay:

Lots of seasonal RVers, oil field workers, permanent residents. But park is not trashy and most sites are kept up. Gravel roads & all pull-through sites. Good WiFi from park or Lowe's. Unlike 1 poster, I used the WiFi on both my iPhone & iPad with no problem & signal was consistently good. Most sites in full sun. Park is close to Walmart, HEB, Walgreens, several fast-food places. And right on I-35, but I'm not bothered by highway noises. I used PPA and also wouldn't pay full price, but for $20 all I wanted after a day of sight-seeing was good WiFi & electricity to run the AC.

Great park. Stayed here several times: this time in one of their newer cabins. Practically brand new! Close to everything & we must be really sound sleepers because we've never been bothered by highway noises or a train! Will definitely stay here again.

This is a nice small RV park attached to a large public park. Sites are all gravel, level and shaded. Rate is Passport America rate. Public swimming pool, playgrounds, picnic tables, jogging trail and hiking trails all within walking distance. Tucked back behind the city: no traffic noise at all. A number of workers have trailers here but they're all well: kept and very friendly. The camp hosts are nice and very helpful.

DON'T use their website for rates! They've raised all their rates and won't tell you this over the phone. Nightly charge is $35 plus electric! Sandburrs are HORRIBLE! If you have a long- haired dog, be prepared to pick the burrs out hourly. The good news is: currently there are NO jellyfish in the ocean. Maybe the weird weather has affected their migration or breeding cycle. Used to be Isla Blanca was a great value to stay on the Island. No more.

We camp here every Memorial Day and Labor Day. The park is completely full plus the dozens of "day users" that come in. The Rangers always do an awesome job of controlling and containing any rowdy or unlawful behavior. They have a new concession stand on site (Chris' Landing). It looked busy but we didn't try it out. It certainly helps during this long Texas drought that Inks is a constantly level lake. The water was cool and refreshing, the sites are spacious and some shaded and/ or right on the lake. We're looking forward to our trip Labor Day!

Stubblefield is in the Sam Houston National Forest. They have tent pads and some longer 'driveways' for RV's. No hookups, but bath houses and showers stalls are provided in two buildings at opposite ends of the loop. Very nice, quiet, shady area to enjoy nature in. Plenty of fishing in the area as it borders Lake Conroe. You can launch your canoe or kayak right from the bank at the CG. They don't take reservations, but if you go and they are full, there is an overflow area (grassy meadow) just east of the park across the bridge and on the left. Good for a nice, quiet getaway!

Kelly's Pond is a primitive campground in the Sam Houston National Forest. There are no 'ponds' anymore -- the drought has made them mud holes. However, this is the entrance to the Multi-Vehicle trails in the NF. There are 9 picnic tables, grills and lantern hooks available for tents. In addition, you can pitch a tent or park your self-contained RV anywhere along the road or within the perimeter of the forest. There were a lot of dirt-bike riders and trailers when I went. There are also a lot of hiking/biking trails if you have kids that have BMX bikes. There is no charge for Camping; but a $5/day for usage of the multi-vehicle trails only.

Pro's: huge park next to Lake Somerville; family friendly; sandy beaches; very shallow next to shore for quite a ways out. Can bring as many tents, boats, watercraft, family/ friends, vehicles, etc. as you want. An extra day pass comes with each site so you can entertain without paying extra. There are cabins and rooms that overlook the lake. Beaches and common areas are clean. No problem with dogs enjoying the beach or swimming in the water. Jet-ski rental on site as well as a grill open on the weekends. Alcohol ok. Cons: packed in like sardines on the weekend we were there. If you like peace & quiet, no kids running around and through your site, no boat motors at all hours of the day & night, loud music/partying -- this might not be your type of place. Sites range from spread out to close & shady to full sun. Close to lake or further away. All types of watercraft allowed & there are several boat launches in the park. After I got over my horror at seeing 8 tents, 2 rv's, 10 trucks, and 4 boats/ trailers spread over 3 sites ( not to mention the dozen easy-ups!)--we had a great time! Lake is nice, everyone is friendly, no public drunks that I saw, and no problem with my 5 month old puppy being off- leash. We will definitely go again!

This was our second stay here, & I would stay again. Very accommodating hostesses and had no problem adding on another night to our stay. Nice grassy, level sites with gravel driveways/roads. Off the beaten path -- so not even crowded during Spring Break! Some traffic noise from Hwy. 87. Wi-fi was reliable only close to office area. They cater to a number of workers living in FEMA trailers, though. No frills, but a nice, quiet, comfortable place to stay!

Date of Stay:

Nice level AMPLE sites, all with covered picnic table areas. Friendly staff, no problems with WiFi, Passport America park. Pool and hot tub open year round. Close to San Antonio and surrounding cities. Would definitely stay again.

Date of Stay:

One of 3 campgrounds in the Angelina National Forest, the other 2 being Caney Creek and Sandy Creek. Water spigots available but no hook-ups. Generators are allowed -- quiet time is from 10PM-6AM. Small lake (~9 acres) with swimming area roped off. Small creeks from springs located throughout park. No playground. Some campsites with grill and/or fire ring, lantern hook, asphalt driveways. First come, first served.

Date of Stay:

I gave it a "7" due to the dust/roads being worked on and lack of trees. Nightly rate reflects PA discount, which is available with no restrictions. About 15 minutes south of the Riverwalk area in downtown. 30 minutes from Fiesta Texas. Very accommodating, nice folks run it. Grounds are kept up. Laundry, fishing pond (catch/release: no license required), ducks, lounge w/modem and computer. They are affiliated with Days Inn right next door and RVer's can use the pool at the motel. Free WiFi. $5 dinners on Friday nights; Saturday and Sunday all-you-can-eat breakfasts @ $4. Once they get all the roads paved and construction done this will be a bang-up place!

Date of Stay:

Nice park and very convenient to the city of Austin. Onion Creek flows through it and plenty of wading or swimming places are available! Very busy on the weekends for day usage. Nice visitors' center, hiking/biking trails, and historical walks. Good WiFi at the visitor's center! Very family friendly and plenty of wildlife to see around dark!

Date of Stay:

Nice and shady park. I had site 148 and did NOT feel like other campers were 'on top of me'. I have Passport America and asked for an extra night at 1/2 price and they gave it to me with no questions asked! Located about 20 minutes from Six Flags Over Texas, which is why we came. Very quiet and no traffic noise that I could hear. Super Target was two blocks away. Will definitely stay here again when we come back!
