Level sites and good utilities. We were escorted to our pull-through site by the very friendly owner who recommended things to do in the area. Nice path around the lake for walking in pleasant surroundings. Great spot for one night or several. We would stay here again if we find ourselves back in this area.

Date of Stay:

Huge park with lots of level pull-through sites. Utilities were good including Wi-Fi. There's really no shade, so in hotter weather this place could get pretty warm. While we were here, we had a huge thunderstorm with several inches of rain, so dust was not a problem. Friendly staff helped point us to the best attractions around the colonies.

Date of Stay:

There's nothing very fancy here but it's fairly priced. We paid $27 per night for two nights with a Good Sam discount. Utilities were all fine and the laundry facility is decent (I got lots of laundry done while my wife spent a day at the quilt museum). Our site was along the side of the park facing an auto auction, and we were there during an auction day. There was tons of traffic passing in front of our rig all day long kicking up loads of dust. There appear to be quite a few permanent/semi-permanent residents at this park which always brings my rating down, but the staff is very friendly.

We've stayed here a couple of times and had two completely different experiences. During our first stay we had gorgeous weather and a spacious, level site with 50 amp and full hook-ups and a view of the lake. This time, we had a very sloped site away from the lake and only water and 30 amp electric. Our AT&T cell service was practically non-existent.

This campground is a bit on the spartan side but the views and surrounding countryside are spectacular. This is a wonderful spot for some quiet and tranquility. The owner is friendly and helpful and quite interesting to talk with. At the time of our stay there were no laundry facilities but I believe there were plans to add them. It seems a bit pricey for the amenities (or lack thereof) but we would stay here again.

We reviewed this park in October of 2009 and gave it an 8, but this stay was not as good or maybe we just expect more value for our money after three years of full-timing. This is a beautiful park in a beautiful part of the country but we found the park staff to have a bit of an attitude and not very helpful. Voltage at our power pedestal wasn't very good, the park Wi-Fi was non-existent at our site and you can forget using your cell phone if you're on AT&T. This park is showing its age and good use some serious updating. For 54 bucks a night, I expect more.

We stayed three nights in this unique little park and appreciated the friendliness of the owners, a level concrete site, pretty landscaping and a nice picnic table. Our cats really enjoyed watching the park chickens parade by our rig a couple of times a day, and the crowing roosters early in the morning weren't as bothersome as I thought they might be.

Date of Stay:

We chose to stay here primarily because friends were workcamping at this park. It's a great spot to spend a night or two, it's close to the interstate but you don't hear much traffic noise. But it's really not much of a "resort." Electric was good but we were told the Wi-Fi wasn't working. The laundry was little more than a couple of old and dirty machines on the back porch of the office building. This isn't our cup of tea and I doubt we'd stay here again.

At the time of this writing, we have reviewed 115 RV parks and only awarded two with ratings of "ten". Looking back, those two "tens" don't even compare with Bella Terra. Sites are beautiful; restrooms, showers, laundry are spotless, workout facility and clubhouse are magnificent. The staff here really understand that they are in the hospitality business and the staff are wonderful and do everything they can to make Bella Terra a special place. At a monthly rate of $800, it was a real bargain too, although I wouldn't be surprised to see their rates go up. We'll still come back.

For us, this park is fine for a night or two, but it has a lack of any real energy and it's not very close to recreation or shopping. Most of the sites are on grass and they get really sloppy when it rains. The people are friendly and the price is right, but we probably won't come back.

Date of Stay:

We arrived here planning to spend a few nights and ended up staying for two weeks. Our site was spacious with good 50 amp power, Wi-Fi, nearby laundry and beautiful surroundings. The camp hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. Lots of hiking and biking in the park and Mandeville is just minutes away. We look forward to our next stay here.

Date of Stay:

This park has great 50 amp power, good cable TV, pretty surroundings and perhaps the most level site we've ever parked in. The owner has a very laid back management style that takes some getting used to, but Mark is extremely accommodating and his personality is part of the character of the place. We were here for the Christmas Eve bonfires along the river that were really a blast. There's lots to do in the area--plantation tours, interesting little restaurants, etc. and it's only about an hour from New Orleans. Mark's tour of the Poche house was interesting as well. If we're in the area again, we would definitely stay here.

Like most of the Texas State Parks that we have stayed in, this one has a friendly staff and well-maintained sites. During our 5 night stay there were very few other campers so we had our choice of sites but during summer months this place is probably pretty tight. Only 30 amp power is available, no sewer hookups and many of the sites don't appear to be very level but the price is right!

We're big fans of Texas State Parks and this one is no exception. Staff is friendly, surroundings are beautiful and it's close enough for easy drives into Austin to see the sights. Like many of the Texas parks we've been in, some of the sites are not very level, but we had our choice since it's not very busy in mid-December. Our last time in Austin we stayed at Lone Star but this suits us much better. We will definitely be back.

This RV park is easy on and off of I-35W but that's the best thing I can say. There's no Wi-Fi, no picnic tables, no showers/restrooms, no laundry and the sites are very tight. Most of the tenants appear to be construction workers, so you can expect lots of diesel pickup truck traffic through the park. This is the only RV park I've ever seen with a 20 mph speed limit, and still no one obeys it.
