A nice well kept state park on a lake. Sites are gravel and mostly level. The map on line shows no pull through sites, but when we arrived we were directed to site F1 which is a pull through. Only 30 amp electric at the site. Had to fill up with water at one of the faucets scattered throughout the park. Campground hosts were friendly and very helpful. They told us the water was OK to drink, but had a bad taste due to iron. No problem, we drink bottled water. We would stay here again.

This campground has seen better days. Many sites paved, but not level. Camped here in late September after most of the attractions in town closed down. There was only one other camper in the park. We had our choice of sites, but still had trouble finding one where we could get level. Hook-ups are old and showing a lot of wear, but we did have 50 amp service. No WiFi at our site. We did not see any park personnel except for a guy who poked his head out of the second floor balcony at the office. He told us to self register and take any site we wanted. If we ever return, we will probably look for another campground.

This is a nice clean park with grass between the sites. Sites were gravel and level. The electric and water hook-ups on our site (site 51) were located behind the site and almost unreachable with our electrical cord. Campground hosts were friendly and helpful, but insisted on guiding us to our site even after we waited 15 minutes and asked if we could proceed on our own. We were there on a weekend and it appeared that the campground was occupied mostly by locals. Everyone was well behaved except our inconsiderate neighbors who continued to slam doors until after midnight. This campground is OK for an overnight stay.

This campground is clean with grass between the sites. Sites are gravel and mostly level. Owners were friendly and helpful. Was led to our site by a man on a bicycle. This campground is near the interstate, but noise was not a problem. The only thing that distracted from the experience was the mile long washboard gravel road from the exit ramp to the campground. Got there on a hot day and noticed the voltage was 109 volts, probably because everybody was running their air conditioners. Later in the evening voltage came back up. Would stay here again for an overnight.

This is a pleasant city park located on the north side of town behind the ball field. Sites are gravel with water and electric. Some are pull through. Whoever laid out the park never camped in an RV. The water faucets are located about 100 feet from the electrical boxes. It took two hoses to reach the water. The park is located below a dam breast, but not to worry, there's not much water behind the dam. In late September there were only two campers in the park. Good for an overnight. We would stay here again.

This park is getting a little run down. We were first assigned to a site that was very muddy. When we asked for another site, we were given one where the electrical box was wired shut. The site next to it was the same way. Apparently they didn’t work. We finally got a site with a full hook-up that worked. This one even had 40 channels of cable TV. WiFi only works near the office. There are WiFi transmitters in the park, but apparently they don’t work. All sites gravel and mostly level. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Some train noise, but not bad. This campground is OK for an overnight.

Ditto on everything posted by other reviewers; however, trains are even worse than described. Not only can you hear them all night long, but you can feel them as well. Camped near the office. WiFi worked very well. Laundry was clean with two washers and two dryers. This campground is OK for an overnight, but next time we will look for another campground with less noise.

Rate includes on-line reservation fee. There are plenty of big trees making the access road is a little tight for big rigs, but it is passable with care. Spaces are gravel with water and electric only. Dump station can handle two rigs at a time. Good AT&T signal for voice and data. A great location, near the water. We did a day trip to Victoria. The campground is only 50 minutes from the ferry terminal.

Rate includes on-line reservation fee. There are plenty of big trees making the access road is a little tight for big rigs, but it is passable with care. Spaces 203 through 211 are under big trees making satellite reception difficult. Spaces 212 through 238 are mostly in a clear open area. Spaces are gravel. Spaces closer together than we have experienced in state parks in other states. AT&T signal adequate for voice calls. The park is served by two cell sites – one LTE and the other 4G. If you can link up to the LTE site, data works great.

This is a nice state park located not too far from Portland, and the Evergreen Aircraft and Space Museum, home of the Spruce Goose. Good AT&T wireless signal for voice and data. Electric and water only. Dump station can handle two rigs at a time. Sites were gravel and level. Not much privacy in this campground. Great bike riding on paved trails. Can’t ride bikes on unpaved hiking trails. Spaces closer together than we have experienced in state parks in other states. We would stay here again.

All sites are asphalt. Spaces on the outside of the loop are full hook-up. Spaces on the inside of the loop are for tent campers – no hook-ups. The exception is the pull-through spaces which are on the inside of the loop, but are full hook-up. We were in space B12 which is a pull through space. It is a little downhill, but our levelers could handle it. It had some limited privacy, which is hard to come by in this campground. AT&T wireless signal weak. Data nonexistent. This campground is a little tight for big rigs. I would suggest unhooking your toad before entering the campground. Don’t miss the Oregon Logging Museum across the road. It is a real gem (at least for the guys). Spaces closer together than we have experienced in state parks in other states. Would stay here again.

I agree with the other reviewers, this is a nice clean park with paved level sites. Looks like many of the spaces are occupied by long term residents, but they all keep their sites clean and tidy. A quiet campground, except for the railroad noise. The trains run right across the highway and they blow their whistles all night long. If you are a light sleeper, don't stay here. Also, the water pressure is very high. You will need a pressure regulator. Next time in the area we may try another park with less noise.

Wow! This is a great place to stay. All the campers here were very friendly. We came in on Christmas eve and were invited to a Christmas dinner the next day. Looks like management's strategy is to convert the property from RV sites to villas (houses small enough to fit on one or two RV sites). About 10 percent of sites already have villas on them. Fortunately the staff was off for the holiday so we had no sales pitch. Still one of the best places we have stayed. Excellent facilities. Would certainly camp here again.

This park is typical of RV parks in the west - all gravel and no shade, but we were impressed by the reception we received from the owners. We made a reservation over the phone and the whole process was professional friendly and helpful. When we arrived the great service continued. After check in we were escorted to our site by the owner. The park is clean and the hookups are modern. We stayed over night here on our way to California and would definitely stay here again.

The campground in this Texas state park shows some signs of age. Most sites have 30 amp service with 50 amps being available at a few. All the sites are gravel. Many, but not all, are level. Most have adequate clearance for big rigs. We found the staff very friendly and helpful, but were a little put off by the $6.00 daily entrance fee we had to pay (thus the $34.00 nightly fee). This park sustained damage from the 2013 Halloween flood. The visitors center is closed due to flooding and may be closed for some time. The short Rock Shelter trail is closed. The longer Homestead and Onion Creek trails are both open. Still there is plenty to do in the park and you can't beat the location so close to Austin.
