This place is mostly a gravel parking lot, but the services are being actively upgraded. Seems to be quite a few long-term residents. No shade so a satellite connection is easy. The sites are jammed in quite tightly, but access was OK for our 36 foot fifth wheel. The laundry was goo, clean and had three sets of washers and dryers. We stayed for three days doing some maintenance, and the co-located RV parts place was helpful. We might stay again.

As an essentially un-serviced NPS campground, this place is about average. The campground hosts are around a lot and can be very helpful. At each site, you get a more-or-less level pad, a table, and a bear box to store food items and cooking utensils. Generators are permitted between 8 AM and 8 PM in part of the campground. Some sites are drive-through loops off the road, but most are back-ins. Read the web site carefully about size. Most sites have a bit of shade, but mostly they are exposed. We had no problem with a satellite TV connection. Forget about cell phone, or AM or FM radio. For laundry, use the nearby Rio Grande Village store facility, which is large and pretty good. Don't go to this park for the campground. Go for the rest of the truly awesome park.

Our rate reflects a 10% discount, so the normal daily rate is very high. Given that they are literally the only game in town, they can charge what they want. The campground has two parts - one above for 50 amp units and one below for 30 amp units. Both are gravel. All services were good, including Wi-Fi. Quite a bit of train noise from the tracks across the street, but fortunately there were only four or so trains daily. This town is OK for a stop before or after Big Bend NP, but don't count on stocking up on supplies. Fuel is expensive and the only grocery store is very expensive and has about the same stock as a Seven-Eleven in a larger community. We probably will not stay here again.

Basic park, really just a place to stay. Gravel roads and pads. Rudimentary but adequate laundry though expensive. All sites have a good satellite shot. Wi-Fi usually worked, but afternoons and evenings bogged down. Many long term residents. Our price is a multi-day discount, which we found to be good. We might stay here again.

Associated with the adjacent weekend flea market, this campground seems to attract those who like that sort of thing. The facilities are good, but the price is high, even with the multi-day discount. The residents seemed very aloof to us, and the staff were just there. Most site are quite shaded, so don't count on a satellite connection. The laundry was large and among the most inexpensive we have encountered in 12 years of full-timing. We used this place as a spot to park our rig while we flew out of DFW airport. The cost was very high for what was basically storage. We won't stay here again.

Super clean sites, excellent laundry, clear satellite view, extremely helpful owner, many friendly winter Texans, great lake view, security gate, nice pool, hot tub, top-notch power/water/sewer, many group events, etc. Rate is Good Sam 10% off. This place has it all and deserves a 10! We would definitely stay again.

This campground has no particularly wonderful facilities, but it is quite inexpensive and certainly adequate. The sites are gravel but wide and easily accessed. Most people in the campground seem to be either workers or students, but that was really not a problem. The Wi-Fi was good and fast, and the laundry was convenient and inexpensive. Our rate reflects a one week stay - basically seven nights for the price of six. We would probably stay here again.

Park is beautifully maintained and inexpensive. All sites are power/water/sewer. Most sites are heavily shaded, but a couple have a view between the trees to the south for satellite. Our site (15) had both a satellite view and a lake view. On top of that, we were right in front of the Wi-Fi antenna, so our Internet service was marvelous. Security was top-notch with locked gates at night and park security around regularly. No laundry in the park, which makes it a 9 overall for us. Everything else was excellent. We would definitely stay again.

Without repeating what everyone else has said, we will just add that Betty is genuine. She is legitimately and honestly welcoming to all who stay with her. When we checked in, she said "you are coming to Happy Hour at 4:30." It wasn't a question - we were expected! We did attend and had a great time every day of the week we stayed. Betty steered us and others to the best activities. She listened closely to our experiences and clearly intended to share them with others. Even the long-term folks picked up on Betty's attitude. This was the first time we have most of the other park residents come out to say farewell when we departed. Betty's RV Park and Betty is a marvel, definitely worth a visit, which could turn out to be the first of many. We will most definitely stay again if we are ever in the area.

Very nice state park. Large sites, though a narrow paved strip for RV. Park was mostly empty, even over the Thanksgiving weekend. The laundry is very good and extremely inexpensive, $1 per load! The only drawback of this park is the lack of sewer at the sites. Even the Wi-Fi was fast and included in the price. Most sites have a bit of shade, but satellite connection should be possible at most - a very good compromise. We would almost certainly stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Clean, well laid-out, good services, convenient to highway, very inexpensive. Open sites for good satellite access. Top notch for an overnight, but also very close to the many attractions of Vicksburg. We will almost certainly stay again.

Date of Stay:

Excellent campsites with paved pads, tables and grills. All are pull-through with water, sewer, and 50 amp power. The laundry is quite good and reasonably priced. As stated in previous reviews, call the hotel on the phone at the bath-house before pulling into a site. The very low cost makes this a nice place to stop for a while. We would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This campground was very busy with many full-timers making a couple of days stop on their way elsewhere. The campground has gravel pads, some pull-through and some back-in, and some power-water-sewer and others just power-water. The place is partly shaded, but satellite access is generally possible. Laundry is good with reasonable prices. The offer a daily shuttle to downtown for $10 per person. The office staff are excellent, very helpful. We would probably stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This small campground in a state park was in "off-season" mode in November, with all accessible water shut off. We found some in a day-use building, with the aid of other campers. The sites are power only - no water or sewer, and the rate reflects that. We saw an employee only once in our two night stay, and the camp hosts never did appear. Nonetheless, the facilities were adequate. No laundry, and all sites have reasonable satellite access. We might stay here again.

Very large park, lots of seasonals. This seems to be largely a snowbird park. Our rate reflects an off-season discount of 10%, but it is still expensive. The transient sites are all pull-through but are back to back. Still, by parking the right direction, you can face away from your closest neighbor. The park is very open with only a few trees, and is surrounded by a golf course. We were here in the final week of operation, and the few other users all seemed to be full-timers like us, just staging to cross the very nearby US border at the appropriate time. We would probably stay here again.
