Very nice campground (although, typically KOA pricing) with long level pull thru sites and good utilities. Very nicely kept grounds, lovely dock on the river. Friendly staff and easy access to the "city" of New Bern.

Date of Stay:

Outstanding park with long level sites, great electric and water pressure. Many shaded sites. The laundry was clean with all machines working! Very friendly staff. The big plus was the city bus stop at the campground entrance ~ a HUGE plus so you don't have to deal with parking etc. downtown. We would absolutely return here.

Great park, although as a previous post said there are SOME sites with sewer but I haven't a clue how one would be fortunate enough to have one! When we were there they were all occupied and most had only a unit there, but no people in the eight days we were at the park. Some sites were very unlevel ~ it seemed the ones on the side of the lake were best, but on the opposite side of the road they were not. The sites were quite large and several were pull thrus. There did seem to be one area of the campground (the furthest from the park entrance) that seemed to be tents of "homeless" people. There didn't seem to be any length of stay limit here. We would definitely return here.

This was an alright state park but we'd pass on by if in the area again. Our site was not at all level and pull thru. The sites are quite short and very close together. Also in the section we were in (the 200 loop) every sites hook ups are on the wrong side, hard to imagine who planned this set up but they certainly weren't rv'ers. The sites were loaded with burrs (aka "goat heads") so enjoying the site was impossible as was walking a dog on anything other than hot blacktop. The staff was very friendly and check in was quick and easy with a reservation.

Where to begin? Dirt roads with big holes, train tracks 15 yards from campsites, many pipeline workers and permanent residents in trashy sites, dog waste not picked up, the laundry room stunk because washers drain back up into empty washers. I had to rewash my clothes twice in order to get the stench out of them. The closest grocery store is 12 miles away, the closest Wal-Mart is 22 miles away, Corpus Christi is 35 miles away The staff was friendly but we would never stay here again.

This was a nice state park, although it seems the Texas State Park system will nickel and dime you with extra fees, daily entrance fee, additional vehicle fee it was ridiculous. Because of that we would probably not return here. There is lots and lots of history in this area but not a choice of restaurants or night life!

Rate posted was a combination of a weekly rate and three days at Passport America rate. This was a very nice park with a lot of activities and friendly, helpful staff. Many winter Texans, all of whom were very friendly with nice clean sites. There was not a specific dog walking area, but there were NO dog messes which was very nice that people here took responsibility for their pets. There was not much in the immediate area for restaurants but good eating and shopping was within 10 miles north or south. Also, about 25 miles from South Padre Island. We would certainly return here.

We like to stay at fairgrounds because there is lots of room to move around in a big rig towing a big trailer plus fairgrounds don't have lots of amenities that we don't use and don't pay for. This was a great fairgrounds but "checking in" was ridiculous, clearly the left hand had no idea what the right hand was doing. There were many pull thrus on level hard asphalt and/or dirt. Many Back in against fences. Most sites were water and varied electric (30 or 50 amp). Also there are vast areas to walk a dog. We would stay here again. There is a lot to do in the Waco area and this is a good location to do them from.

Price included KOA discount. We had a long pull thru full hook up. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The campground, however, is very poorly market - according to the staff the town won't let them put a flag or sign out on the main road and our GPS had no clue where the address was. Unfortunately Austin was 25 miles away. There was a grocery store a mile or two down the road. Georgetown is a very pretty little town about 12 miles away and worth the ride. There is also have a lovely off leash dog park in Georgetown.

Horribly unlevel site. We came in as "walk in" and check in was a nightmare - it took over 30 minutes. This is a lovely property but unless we were sure what site we were going to, as in if it was level, we probably would pass this one the next time in the area. Also, the gates are LOCKED at 10:00 pm, if you aren't in the campground you won't get in until the morning - this presented safety concerns for us as well as being a major inconvenience.

Rate listed was Passport America rate. The staff was very helpful when we had to keep extending our stay due to an accident my husband had. This campground was very easy on/off the highway with no highway noise. Also a very easy drive into San Antonio. There was a nice fenced dog area, however there was a lot of dog waste around the park where people walk their dogs rather than use the dog area. There were many permanent and/or snow birds here with very neat and tidy sites, although many unfriendly people. We would return here if we are back in the area.

What a treasure, quiet and peaceful. The roads within this vast property are fairly rough and dirt. The pull thru sites are HUGE with deer and other wildlife roaming about. There isn't much around here in fact the closest grocery store is 10 or so miles away. We would certainly stay here again.

This was a decent enough place and quite fairly priced for a KOA. The location was great, the staff was great, the property is well maintained. There are many "permanents" here, people that live here and leave for work early in the morning, but their sites are clean and tidy, although the people are not particularly friendly. We were in site E-7 which was long enough for our combined length, but in the midst of the permanents, which brings me to why this campground was not rated higher (yes, I suppose it is not the campgrounds fault). In three years of full timing this campground holds the distinction of the first place we've ever had anything stolen - not a big item, not a pricey item, but something taken from our site. This was so distressing for us! With that said, if we returned here we would request a site away from these permanent sites, although I am not at all certain it was a "permanent" who took our property.

Oh my, what to say on this one? Once again I wish there was the ability on rvparkreviews to post photos. Yes, I know this campground website has photos, but I have no clue where they were taken. We had a poorly marked (as were all sites in our area) site (although it was quite long, as we needed) in a dirt parking area. The electric was spotty at best; truly read the electric was AWFUL. As a previous review stated the town has little to offer. We had intended to stay here for three or four nights, but decided one was about two too many! Even if this "place" were $10 a night it would be over priced. We would never stay here again.

Oh what a lovely park. We were there in what I guess would be the off season (mid September) so it was very quiet and peaceful during the week; the weekend was a bit more crowded. The town of Rupert is about 10 miles away, which is a catch 22, I guess so plan ahead. Also, the office wasn't staffed all that much during the day. Given all that, the price was well worth anything that may be considered a "down side". I loved it here, and we would certainly return.
