The rate we got is based on a monthly stay rate. This park is very quiet and scenic. The sites are concrete pads with water, sewer, and 30/50 amp power - electricity is stable and consistent. Interior roads are well packed caliche. The club house has laundry facilities, bathrooms, and showers. There a large screen TV, sofas, etc. plus tables for events/dinners. Only thing lacking are pool tables and a swimming pool! Highly recommend this park - very easy access and close to both Rockport and Aransas Pass. We camped at Enchanted Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.
This is a family-owned RV park is right off by-pass 35 a couple miles from Rockport and Aransas Pass. Check-in is a breeze and the owner is a real sweetheart. Highly recommend this RV park!

First, the good: Close in to town (Lubbock), easy access in & out, easy check in, plenty of room to maneuver & park-set up, easy.
The bad: Dirty showers (hair & soap scum everywhere), bathroom disgusting, WiFi was extremely poor. We called the office to comment, and were told it was because of the wind (I guess the wind there blows those internet waves around like dust, eh?) and because of people streaming. OK, at around 8PM, I can kind of understand that but at 7:15AM? And even if that's the case, for essentialy a cleared caliche parking lot with hook-ups, at $30/night, shouldn't the wifi be at least adequate?
Laundry was $2/load both washer & dryer so to wash and dry one load, $4.
The site photos are misleading at best... the RV park reminds me of an oil field supply business with an office and a large, cleared, caliche parking lot filled with equipment.
But again... it provided us with easy access to town & full hook-ups... a step above staying at a truck stop for the night and as with a truck stop, there was no fire ring, patio table - nothing, nada, zilch for $30/night. We camped at Mesa Verde RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
No shade at all so if you're staying in the summer... good luck.

Passing through Oklahoma to NM and stopped for the night in El Reno... Ended up being two nights as the city owned RV park was VERY nice! Great little lake, spacious pull-through, full hook up sites and not crowded at all. We didn't use the facilities but the building looked clean and well made (others were using them though).
Large fields around the lake when our two dogs ran like the dickens chasing the sun... We didn't check in, payment is on the honor system, fill out an envelope with receipt and deposit $$ in the lock box. There are two sides to the park, sites 1-20 were water & electric only, 21-50, water-elec-sewer. The sites are grassy-gravel, level with no picnic table or fire ring (people have gathered rocks, dug a hole and made their own. Trash cans at each site.
Really, really nice & quiet gem of an RV park. Will most definitely make a point to come back! We camped at Lake El Reno RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
The city park is in a nice neighborhood, easy to find but the RV park is a bit difficult to get to. When coming into the park on Elm St., go straight towards the lake (don't take the first right) and follow the road.
The park has a golf course, restaurant, hiking & running trails, fishing.

The daily rate is for my monthly stay and does not include electricity nor the deposit.
All sites are paved as are the streets... lots'o concrete but narrow bands of grass in between sites and lots'o trees. As mentioned in previous posts, the sites are close together but you can get your slide-outs extended... They do have back-ins and pull through sites.
My site is back in a "corner" with a fence behind me. The vegetation has grown quite high and needs cutting (as high as the hookup post where the water & breaker box are mounted). Would have thought grounds staff would have seen this but as I haven't said anything to the front desk, hasn't been trimmed... If it were a pressing issue, I would have said something - mainly an appearance thing.
Staff are very friendly and very nice, check in is easy and everything explained. Basic cable is extra ($20/mo) and if you want premium channels, you'll need to get TWC out to get you a box (more $$) - same with internet access if you do not want to use the parks wi-fi which is sporadic and slow at times. Matter of fact... not unusual to get kicked off mid-stream reading an article or newspaper... forget streaming anything. I use my iPhone as a hot-spot (AT&T which works peachy-keen).
The grounds are nice, absolutely no "worn out" trailers around. Around the perimeter of the park are park model trailers for rent and ones that appear to have been rented by winter Texans (as well as some of the 5th wheels) as they are vacant and rented. Lots of what appears to be semi-permanent retirees here, which is good because they do keep an eye on things.
I haven't used any of the facilities - club house, indoor swimming pool, laundry or showers/bathrooms.
Al in all, a nice park for both short-term and long-term visits. I would return and would recommend to friends. We camped at Lagoons RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Rockport/Fulton are great little towns - fishing (of course), good restaurants, art festivals, Oysterfest, Market days every month at the city park on the bay, Blue wave beach, Seafair, galleries, bay tours, all the shops a coastal tourism town would have. Some good night spots on the bay with live music... Corpus Christi is 30 miles away and on TX 35, the speed limit is 75... The Ferry to Port Aransas is 12 miles away and of course, Padre Island.
Lots to do if you are not a stay-at-home dud.

OUTSTANDING Park! The only reason we gave them an 8 is because after the flooding, the campground is still recovering and then, it’s mainly the office facilities and such. Bathrooms and showers are clean and well kept, laundry facilities are also clean and well kept. AND, they’re FREE! These are commercial grade machines which do the job very well and did I say, FREE!? The grounds are very well kept and RV sites, spacious. The sites along the river are concrete and provide plenty of room even with all slides out. The physical grounds of the park is large and NOT packed with RV sites so that it looks like an RV condo. Water, electric and sewer hookups are easy, well positioned and work. Management folks are very nice, helpful and willing to do whatever they need to do to make your stay comfortable. (No, we don’t work for the park nor have any investment in it.) We originally planned on staying just for a couple of days on our slow trek back to Texas after touring the east coast. We decided to stay for the week and are enjoying every minute of it. We’re right on the Mississippi River. Interesting to watch the barges slowly making their way up and down the river. Some of them are HUGE. The parks is also close to Memphis, TN and activities there are within easy reach. Will absolutely return and make TSMRRV Park a stopover for any trips north east. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Motorhome.

Great park with friendly staff. We’re staying here for a couple of months in between trips (we fulltime) and the “daily” rate reflects everything: full hookups and electricity. Park is close in to Austin downtown, UT and pretty much everything else you’d visit Austin for (ACL, SXSW, Biker Rally, Rodeo, etc). Very impressed with this park, one of the best we’ve stayed in. It is pet friendly with 3 very large fenced in areas to let your animals play while you sit and throw the ball and enjoy your favorite beverage. There is also a very large walking area with field that is good for letting the dogs off leash to thrown frisbees or balls for the dogs to run. Across the street from the park is yet another area for pets to run freely. WiFi is through TengoNet which can be frustratingly slow (we use MilleniCom instead). The premium sites are concrete and very level. The water pressure is very good, electricity consistent w/no problems, spikes, etc. The bathrooms and showers are immaculate, water pressure in the showers is great, each shower having two spray heads, one fixed, one on a hose. Very nice pool area, club house with outdoor patio. Laundry mat is very clean but rather high priced with small drums, AND they don’t have change machines nor will they give you change at the office. Best bet is to go to the laundry mat down the street and use it: also very clean with VERY large drums and inexpensive. This park is a mixture of long term and short stays but all managed well. The park is very well taken care of and nicely laid out. Very easy to maneuver our coach (40’ tag MoHo) and we’ve seen 45’ pull in easily. Check-in/out easy and quick: call ahead because this park fills up quick! We’ll definitely stay here anytime we come back to visit friends. We camped at Oak Forest RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great little park. Every site was very large and easy to get into. Absolutely NO highway noise that we could hear. Bathroom and laundry room left a lot to be desired (seemed like an after thought) - one toilet, shower, washer & dryer. The room was clean, though. The attendant seemed to be in a perpetually grumpy mood - bothered by having to do his job - almost felt like we had to apologize for asking a question. The park was a very nice park despite him. Enjoyed walking around with the dogs in the evening and looking at the stars. Had to de-burr the dogs going back into the coach. One thing this part of west Texas has in abundance is burrs and, man, do they stick! Had to make sure and clean them from inside the coach also. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.
