One night stay, passing through. Just as others have described. Approach to campground is through a neighborhood, narrow street but passable, slowly. We missed entrance sign but found day use parking lot to turn around. Made reservations as "overnight er" and given a pull through level enough to not unhook. Hookups ok. Beautiful "boardwalk" trails and nature center at one end of park. It was cool but I suspect mosquitoes when warm. Great place for overnight.

We considered this park a couple of years ago, but stayed at Oak Thicket. This time we decided on Dixieland due to proximity to Round Top Festival Hill. Park is as described by others, though it had rained most of spring and during our stay so there was standing water all around site. We were greeted by friendly owner who lead us to site...had to maneuver to get level, but did so. Very narrow site, but adequate for one or two nights. Wifi was free and worked well. Overall good value for price. Tried to make reservation on website, but after several days and when I didn't get response, I called. Not so friendly lady answered and made reservation.

Great overnight place. We got in after dark, but one of the easiest hookups I've had. Level sites, quiet, secure. Friendly camp host took payment in morning. We'd stay here again.

Great place for over night or if visiting Norman. Level sites, easy hook up. Relatively quiet and secure as it's off the interstate a few miles and in a residential area but still easy access. There is a self-pay board so we never saw any staff . I had attempted to contact the park by email (from the website) but never got a response. When I phoned got helpful person who said we could stay one night, as there was an event coming up at fairgrounds. Lots of amenities (restaurants, shopping, etc.) nearby.

We were looking for an RV park on Lake LBJ with boat ramp/slips. Lake LBJ is a long, narrow lake, with water more murky than other lakes in the area. This park is on the upper end of Lake LBJ, almost to Inks Lake. This park has a variety of facilities to include cabins, houses, lodge and condos as well as RV spaces. RV spaces are up and away from the water, relatively level but very close to each other so can be noisy after 10pm with kids, but not rowdy. RV rows are terraced as well as narrow making arrival and departure tricky. Several long termers, but most are well kept. On site owners informative and helpful. Boat slips are extra fee and some of the older ones were unusable due to being exposed on the narrow lake without “no wake” zone. Nice grounds, big trees by the water with benches to sit, relax and watch the sunset, not as nice or pretty in RV section.

Similar to previous reviews, very pleasant, quiet, relatively well maintained, well laid out park. Very helpful park personnel, good room between spaces with privacy further provided by thick underbrush. Our space was paved, but narrow and short, barely room for our 27’ trailer and tow vehicle; also paving was in poor condition. Our space was level left to right, but slanted down front to back. Lots of shade in Post Oak loop (had to trim to keep wind from scraping limbs against RV at night), but not much shade in group trailer loop. Lake was very low during our visit and so hike to lake was long. Looks like good canoeing and kayaking up Yegua creek when water higher (canoes and kayaks rented in park). Over the air TV provided one local station.

We stayed here for access to Round Top Festival Hill (great music). Very pleasant park, great shade, relatively easy set up. Our space wasn't quite level and had small over hanging tree limbs, but great space between camp sites. Lake access really just at the swimming area, unless you want to fish from the overgrown bank. RV spaces are very limited in this area. We looked at Dixie Land and decided to stay here instead...more shade! great restaurant "Oaks" in Warrenton not far away and good breatkfast at Orsak's in Fayetteville. We'd stay here again.

What a wonderful St Park. Agree with previous raters that spaces are a bit short, narrow, need leveling (some VERY short, narrow and unlevel) and some tables and fire rings are in strange places (on opposite side from RV door), but the spaces are separated by trees and distance. The hiking is excellent, esp down to and along the river. The falls are spectacular. There are two bird watching blinds staffed by volunteers--do NOT miss this! There is a wonderful winery (Texas Hills) and in town the Silver K restaurant is wonderful. Since it's close to Austin and San Antonio, I suspect it gets crowed at times, but we can't wait to return all year round, but esp during the summer to use the river's picturesque swimming area.

Beautiful, huge park alongside river with big tress (cypress). Scenic hills all around. Great, shaded, level sites. Great time of year to be there, did not need reservation, but VERY busy "anytime school is out" we were told. Part of park was closed, so many sites taken, but still quiet and good spacing between sites. Only here one night but would stay longer next time. Several interesting trails.
Date of Stay: December, 2010
We met friends here and stayed 2 nights, I wish we had stayed longer to do more hiking. Great guided hike into canyon to see caves and petrographic, friends did self-guided hike down to lake, said it was beautiful. High desert camp sites are up on hill with great views--fairly level sites. About 40 long miles outside of Del Rio. Very quiet, small park with good mix of RV and tent sites. This was great time of year..no shade so might be quite hot in summer.
Date of Stay: November, 2010
Relatively small, out of the way State Park. Great park personnel, advised on the best, most level spaces among all available. Be sure to get a space away from the road (we did) as it's noisy near the highway. Good spacing between sites...appears to be several multi RV spaces along with screened in cabins. Several good over the air TV stations. Very unique surroundings..part pine forest, part cypress bayou. Heavy forest trails, access to mill pond that opens onto river and then on to Caddo Lake. Could only stay one night on a Monday. Not much around, so get any supplies on the way in or drive 10 miles or more.
Date of Stay: October, 2010
Wonderful, beautiful State park on top of the forested mountain and easy drive to great trails, sights, Mt Nebo, etc. Plenty to do for several days. Park personnel friendly. Very reasonably priced. We apparently hit a very popular season and so spaces away from the highway (that runs through the park (!) which was busy, noisy with headlights through the evening that distracted from the campfire and the otherwise "in the woods" camping experience) weren't available. We'd sure stay here again, though would (and recommend that you) insist on a site near the lake or away from the highway.
Date of Stay: October, 2010
We stayed here one night on our way to AK and to visit a friend. VERY friendly front desk folks. Relatively level pull through, but not very long. Neat and clean park. Good over the air TV reception and good Wi-Fi. Only downside was the road noise from the highway (75) even though it's a good bit more than a block away. However, we'd stay there again if in the area.

A great campground on Canyon Lake, north of San Antonio. We stayed Wed-Sat nights just before Labor Day. We had the place to ourselves until Friday afternoon, even then, lots of space for all. Beautiful views of lake, good swimming area, deer passed nearby (and accepted treats of peanuts) on way to lake. $18/night, water and elect, dump station nearby. A few over-the-air HD TV channels. Very well maintained, nearby bathhouse, large level sites, each with large, covered picnic table, grill and fire ring. Some sites by reservation, others first-come-first-serve. Park was full and we had reservations.
Date of Stay: July, 2010
On the south end of town, right next to large recreation/pool center, not much shade (none). Right on highway, but still relatively quiet. Check in at rec. center by teens working for the summer and more interested in socializing with each other, so nothing explained/introduced. Never could get the cable TV hooked up, but everything else worked well. Good level, wide spaces and clean. Several good restaurants in the area (Maxican, Storms, Giovani's). We'd stop here again.
