Office is past campground and turn around is almost impossible with a tow or large trailer. Without reservation you must go to office first. Poor planning for office location and check in process.

Date of Stay:

Almost all sites are waterfront. The park was exceptionally clean and all sites are level with level concrete pads, grill, picnic table, and fire rings. Full 50amp services. Hosts on site, gated at night. Large barge traffic on river.

Date of Stay:

Most campsites are waterfront with easy access for kayaking or canoeing. The campground has 3 launching ramps for power boats. All interior roads and site pads are paved. Most sites are 30 amp with water; however, a few sites are 50 amp with water. All sites have fire rings, grills, sheltered picnic tables on concrete pads. The entrance gate is secured and staffed, there are picnic facilities, playground, trash receptacles and dump station. There are 2 stocked ponds for kid fishing only. Restrooms have flush toilets and hot showers. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Sites may be reserved online; however, we visited the month of January and the occupancy was 25% or less most of the time. We were able to get Directv signal and Verizon cell service was good. Hospitals and shopping located in Jasper, Texas, approximately 15 miles from campground. One negative during our stay was ants beginning to come out as the weather warmed up. Alligators are also present in the lake during warm weather (end of March). We plan to camp here again.

We stayed as Coast to Coast. Check-in staff were friendly and we didn't have any problems. The sites were of ample size and relatively level. The pads were gravel and the yard area grass. The grounds were well manicured and several renovation and upgrades were in progress at the time we were there. They have an indoor pool, sauna room and an outdoor pool. Also on the property is a water park; this was also being renovated. The restrooms were always clean, however they are somewhat dated. There is gated security at night and a restaurant on site. We would stay here again.

We stayed here as Coast to Coast. This is a membership park recently purchased by Travel Resorts of America. As of our stay, we probably would not stay here again. Our check-in experience was very smooth and the check-in attendants were most helpful. The pool/whirlpool was nice. That concludes the positives for this "campground". Our stay was fairly uneventful until the weekend. Dogs were allowed to run freely, owners are not required to clean up after their pets. There are only 5 sewer sites and those were 30 amp and very unlevel. We were told upon arrival all the riverfront sites were unavailable. However, as we stayed through the weekend, roughly 10-12 of the river sites were never taken by RVs, only by "permanent weekend campers" and were used primarily for vehicle and golf cart parking. A good number of the "permanent" RVs are old and dilapidated and probably unmovable. There is no security or monitoring of partying or quiet time. On Friday night of our stay it was impossible to sleep until 3 AM. We discussed this with a staff member and was told "I get off at 9 PM". On Saturday night, there were also late night issues with partying. We were extremely disappointed with this campground based upon previous experience with Travel Resorts of America campgrounds. Potential members should pay close attention to details at this "campground" before shelling out thousands of dollars to become a member.

This is a very scenic campground, located inside the canyon. There is 10% grade for approximately 1 miles going into the canyon. The campsites are spacious with great panoramic scenery. There is an abundance of hiking trails with all degrees of difficulty. There is also horseback riding stables located in the park, a visitor center and a few cabins overlooking the canyon. We were misled by the park staff at check in. We requested a 30amp site and were told all the 30amp sites were taken except for small sites, therefore we were placed in a 50 amp site for $3 additional fee per night. While exploring the campground, we discovered only 2 campers in the 30amp area. This was an intentional ripoff by the Texas State Park system. Had we been staying longer than 2 nights, we would have demanded a 30amp site.

What a find! We can't believe this campground is free and has such a low usage. There are multiple campgrounds located around the lake - camping is somewhat dispersed, thus there is not an absolute number of sites listed. For additional info, please refer to the website. Some have dump stations with fresh water and flush toilets. Most have covered picnic tables and grills. Most sites are lake-front. However, the shoreline is rugged and at the time we were here, the lake level was down excessively. There are boat ramps for boaters and fishermen. When we were here, there were only a handful of campers and sometimes we were the only campers in our campground. The park is patrolled by National Park rangers. The only negative we had was unpredictable winds. We will definitely camp here again after we reach the 14-day limit.

$13 a day reflects the weekly rate. $18 is regular, daily rate. Small, friendly, family run campground with pull- through sites, cabins, bathroom/showers and laundry facilities - all immaculate. Campground located in small, friendly town of Silverton. Negatives are there are no grocery stores in Silverton. It's located near Caprock State Park to the East and Lake McKenzie to the Northwest. Both areas are excellent day trips from this base camp. While in the area, make sure to visit the town square for the Briscoe County Jail Museum and war memorials. We would definitely stay here again if staying in the area.

This was our first and last stay at this campground. We stayed here as Coast to Coast. Upon our arrival, we were informed there was a $5 per night charge for any 30 amp RV which had 2 air conditioning units. As anyone knows, 30 amp rigs can only utilize one A/C unit at a time. We tried to explain this to management at the park and were unable to have them understand why we did not need a 50 amp site. We were forced to go to a 50 amp site and thus were charged the 50 amp per night fee of $5. This $5 was paid in advance for the entirety of our 14 day stay. We were informed by the management that we were there as Coast to Coast and therefore, they could charge us anything they wished. I questioned documentation of the policy and was told it was because the temperature was hot. (Actual temperatures during our stay were 70s and 80s). I did ask what would happen when winter came and was told "we haven't thought about that yet." We had experienced a mechanical problem while en-route and were unable to leave immediately. As soon as our repairs were facilitated, we did in fact leave without any refund for the remaining 9 days of our reservation. We attempted to make reservations at another Coast to Coast park and could not due to the fact that Skyline was still holding our points for the entire 14 days, thus we could not double book. A quick call to Coast to Coast resolved that issue and our points were released. After filing a resort complaint with Coast to Coast and explaining the situation there, Coast to Coast did in fact credit our points account in the amount of 7,000 points which equaled the $70 we should not have been charged by the resort. This issue is clearly a problem with the resort management and not that of Coast to Coast. Additional issues at the campground were the jacuzzi was not working as well as the water was tea-colored when we were leaving on Sunday. We will not be staying at this resort again and would caution all Coast to Coast members to call ahead and verify what fees they will incur.

We stayed here at the monthly rate. The park is used mostly for workers in the area and other long term stays. This is not the typical long stay "parking ground." The owners are on site at all times and the park is well kept and neat. The staff is friendly and will work with you to meet any needs you might have. There is a new expansion area that has just opened and has already been found. Anyone looking for a stop over in the area might check for availability prior to arrival. If you need an extended stay park, I would recommend this park without question. There are no bath or laundry facilities in the park.

We stayed here two times this spring. Both times the staff and guests were friendly. We had to leave early in the middle of the night for an emergency, and our fees were refunded without question. Free pancakes and coffee 5 days per week. $2 additional for 50 amp and cable. Convenient to interstate. Small town with not much to do. Quiet campground with level pull through sites. We were Coast to Coast members and will stay here again. In the pecan grove, there were plenty of free pecans to be picked up in season.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here C2C, $5 extra fees for cable and utilities. Fees are mandatory. Level pull thru sites with pads and grass. Boat dock, boat rentals and ramp for fishermen. Full service restaurant. Paved roads. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here 2 times. Staff very friendly and great fishing. Lots of bank fishing on two lakes, boat rentals and ramps to both lakes. This is a fisherman's paradise. License required. Limited pull thru sites and some areas are small for large rigs. We stayed in a 36 A and found several sites to handle our rig. Not all sites have sewer but a dump station is available. Two club houses, one for adults only. Rustic but a quite getaway only a few miles from I-10.

Date of Stay:

The day we visited, this park was officially closed due to foreclosure. The receiver for the federal court was on site, and as far as we know at this point, this campground is closed. Before including this campground in your plans, make sure you call and verify the status.

Stayed here two nights for a stopover. Rating is for longer term visit. If only using as a stopover rating would be much higher. The CG only had a small pool and Wi-Fi for amenities. It does have all pullthru sites long enough to stay hooked to your toad overnight. Sites are narrow but level. Gate locks at 6:00pm so don't be late arriving. We would stay here again as a stopover but not as a destination park. Did not explore area but it appears you are a good distance from most conveniences.
