Fredericksburg RV Park is located in the middle of town. Price was for 50 Amp full hook ups. Water pressure is 40 psi. The is a well maintained, landscaped park with gravel driveways and pads. There are grassy areas between each of the pads. Time Warner was installing new services so there were only 3 cable TV channels (one of them in Spanish), but OTA (over the air) eleven channels worked with a lot of tuning. ATT phone service is 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 4 out of 5 bars. There is no trash pickup at the sites. There are mature shade trees, free ice, and a shaded sitting area by a coy pond with Mallard ducks. The free WiFi strength and response is good, but constricted bandwidth means pictures on websites will slowly "paint" down the computer screen. Video is out of the question. There are concrete patios and picnic tables. There are no fire rings. There were a lot of newer, large class A's and fifth wheel trailers. There were no flies or mosquitoes which made sitting out under the awning enjoyable. Beggar's Lice (plant seeds) are in the grass and get caught in our dog's long hair and wedge between his toes. We'll stay here again.

Boggy Creek RV park is located at 554 County Road 350, the road just north and adjacent to the Shiner Green-Dickson City Park. The CR250 sign is missing and there is a sign saying "No Rigs." You're in oil country so they mean no oil rigs. Price was for 50 amp full hook ups. Water pressure is 20 PSI (normal is 40 PSI). Location is near a large plant that sounds like a diesel locomotive continuously running in the background. Noise was not a problem with the air conditioner on. The is a well maintained park with gravel driveways and pads. Some grass is growing in the gravel pads. There is no cable TV, but OTA (over the air) twenty channels worked fine. ATT phone service is 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 3 out of 5 bars. There is no trash pickup at the sites. The park is in a "hundred year flood plain", but we had no problems. There are some newly planted trees. The free Wi-Fi strength and response is good. There are no picnic tables or fire rings. I think we were the only transients; the rest were long term oil field workers all in newer trailers. The cattle in the field behind the park makes for a pastoral setting. No flies or mosquitoes are noticeable. Beggar's Lice (plant seeds) are all over in the grass and get caught in our dog's long hair and wedge between his toes. He didn't like it until we picked them out. This is good for a short stay.

It has water, electric, sewer and a dump station. The sewer connections are covered with metal lids that say "water meter." Use a screwdriver and pry the lids open and you'll see the connection. The RV parking is on a hill in the park. There are no pull-throughs, trash pick-up, or fire rings. There are concrete picnic tables. There is no cable TV and there is no Wi-Fi. There is automobile and foot traffic going through the grounds because it is in a city park and near a high school. The city park has lighted tennis and volleyball courts and a baseball/softball complex. You must go into town to the City Hall before 4:00 PM to pay for the site.

Owner came out to check me in at 8 PM. Price was for 50 Amp full hookups. Location is very convenient to Buc-ee's and I-45. You can see and hear the traffic on the Interstate. Noise was not a problem with the air conditioner on. The is a well maintained park with gravel driveways and pads. Some grass is growing in the gravel pads. We had a very heavy rain and the drainage was pretty good with some puddles in the road. There is no cable TV, but OTA (over the air) eleven channels worked fine. ATT phone service is 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 2 out of 5 bars. There is no trash pickup at the sites. There are some chickens and mocking birds. There are some mature shade trees. The RV park offers home made bread pudding for $15 for a pan at the office. The free Wi-Fi strength and response is good. No flies or mosquitoes are noticeable. Beggar's Lice (plant seeds) are in the grass and wedge between the toes of our dog. He didn't like it until we picked them out. There are no picnic tables or fire rings. This is good for an overnight stay.

Price was for 50 Amp full hook ups. Location is very convenient to TA Truck Stop and I-80. Noise was not a problem with the air conditioner on. The well maintained park is decorated in cheerful yellow signs, picnic tables, fences and site markers. They have crushed asphalt gravel driveways and pads and some grassy tent pads. We had a very heavy rain and the drainage was excellent. There is no cable TV. We picked up one PBS channel over the air. There was no trash pickup at the sites. The free WiFi strength was excellent and response time was great. There were some gnats at night. Verizon wireless showed 5 out of 5 bars signal strength and ATT showed no network coverage.

Price was for Good Sam 50 Amp electric and water only. Staff is friendly and we received free huckleberry ice cream bars upon check in. No cable TV, but one OTA channel without raising the antenna. They have gravel driveways and pads, and a short drive on a gravel road to get to the park. This gives you a great view of I-90, I-90 frontage road, Reno Creek, and the railroad track. All are far enough away to enjoy without a lot of noise. There was no trash pickup at the sites, but they do have picnic tables, BBQ grills, and lighted pedestals at night. The free WiFi strength was excellent, but response time was slow on the iPad and not useable on my HP laptop. There were some mosquitoes at night, but no flies. Lots of crows. Verizon wireless showed 3 out of 5 bars signal strength and ATT showed 5 out of 5. The park is well maintained and has hiking trails you can use.

Price was for 50 Amp full hook ups. They have gravel driveways and pads. There is no cable TV, but over-the-air channels are available. Signal strength is good but the signal drops out to zero periodically which is very irritating. We were on the lower level. The landscaping is attractive and very well manicured with flowers, shrubs, trees, and mowed grass and clover. Road noise from highway 2 was not noticeable inside the RV. The free WiFi strength and response is excellent. No flies or mosquitoes.

Price was for 50 Amp full hook ups not on the river side which was a higher price. They have gravel driveways and pads. Screw in sewer connection. There is cable TV. The infrastructure and buildings look new. The landscaping is attractive and very well manicured with mature shade trees and mowed grass. With the high trees and birds, it was like camping in a very pleasant aviary. There was no trash pickup at the sites; dumpsters were available. Cottonwood was in full bloom creating an artificial snow storm. The free WiFi strength was OK and response was slow and barely usable even with the park less than 25% full. There were no flies or mosquitoes. Lots of ground squirrels and some rabbits and Canadian geese. Continental breakfast is available in the office to the campers for $3.50. If you have prepay cell phone accounts, you may not be able to make any calls from the Dubois Telephone company. ATT and Verizon are roaming here. We had no signal on ATT wireless and 3 out of 5 bars roaming for Verizon, but still couldn't make a Verizon phone call using our prepay account.

Price was for 50 Amp full hook ups weekly rates with Escapees discount. No pool, no playground, no campfires make this a wonderful quiet and peaceful place to camp. Food is very expensive in this area of the country, so stock up before you come. They have gravel driveways and pads. We were deluged with rain for a couple days, but drainage was excellent with only a couple small puddles to contend with. There is no cable TV. There are 2 over-the-air channels available, channel 8 and channel 10 (PBS). They are extremely difficult to tune in and impossible to get half the time. Most campers were using satellite. There was no trash pickup at the sites; bear proof dumpsters were available. The free WiFi strength was excellent, but the response was slow and barely useable. There were some mosquitoes at night (nothing like the warms in Yellowstone), but no flies. Lots of ground squirrels and robins. Verizon and ATT wireless showed 5 out of 5 bars signal strength. They do have a huge laundry.

Location is right off I-70 and Highway 13. They have gravel driveways and pads. There is a top older section and a newer low section. We stayed in the top section. We had full hookups and WiFi was excellent. This park contains acres that are mowed grass and weeds and provides a pastoral feeling. There is a very large pond at the back of the lower section. There is no cable TV, but several over-the-air channels are available. Road noise from I-70 was not noticeable inside the RV. No flies or mosquitoes.

This place has it all; laundry, dog park, miniature golf, pool, etc. The help was friendly and guided us to our spot using a golf cart. Site E2 has an unobstructed view of I-25 and the East. They have gravel driveways and pads. Screw in sewer connection. There are a lot of long term campers, but they are in a section by themselves. There is good cable TV. The landscaping has patches of mowed grass between each site. Road noise from I-25 was not noticeable. The free WiFi strength was good, but when the park filled up the response was nonexistent from all three WiFi towers. Response returned the next morning when people started leaving. There were no flies or mosquitoes. There were lots of rabbits.

We saw in the KOA website reviews for the Rusk KOA that they were closed. But in fact they are open and everything still looks great. There was a change in ownership in May 2014 and the new ownership is not quite completed, but this didn't impact the camping at all. It did result in phone messages not being answered and returned.

Price reflects Good Sam rates. We were there on Memorial Day weekend and there were a lot of available sites. This park has excellent infrastructure, but badly needs a grounds keeper. The buildings and 2 cabins looked relatively new. The weeds that pass for grass were a foot high in a lot of places and made if difficult to find the sewer connections. Weeds are taking over the children's playground. Bring your bug spray, Off, and Hydrocortisone cream because we were eaten up with chiggers. There are also plenty of ants. The giant checkerboard has boards warped and badly needs paint. Location is north on highway 2021 off the off the highway 59/69/287 loop. Road construction that has been going on for months has the exit onto 2021 blocked when headed east. You have to go to Atkinson Rd. and make a U-turn, go back west and take the Highway 59 exit, and then you will see the small highway 2021 sign. The water pressure is good. The passworded Wi-Fi has good speed and strength. Pictures download with difficulty. The sewer connections are screw-in. There is cable TV with 70 channels. Permanent residents are not apparent. Sites are concrete, level, with good space between and no trees. There are long pull-throughs. Roads are paved. They have trash pick up at the site in the morning. There is a pool and playground. Electricity is 50-30-20 amp. AT&T is max signal strength and Verizon is 3 out of 5 bars. There is no propane and no fire rings. If you turn on your air conditioner fan, you won't hear the highway 59 traffic, the Saturday night mariachi band, and the stock car races. There were no sand burrs or cockle burrs. There were no flies or mosquitoes when we were there. We will look at some other parks in the area next time.
