Just an overnight stop for us this time but we have been here before and like this park. The staff is very friendly and helpful. A pull through site with easy to access hookups. No sewer but has a convenient dump. Not much in the way of scenery but a good place to stop for a short visit.

Date of Stay:

Very nice park. Super helpful staff when we had a problem with our surge protector. They put in a new plug and a new breaker without complaint only to find out it was our surge protector that was the problem. A little pricey but good sites and pretty park. Our second time here and we will stay again.

A big, beautiful state park. Sites are well separated, long, wide, and paved. Multitude of hiking trails, beautiful trees, and friendly staff. Only drawbacks, like a lot of Texas state parks, is they only have 30 amp service and no sewer hookups but had a convenient, nearby dump. Plenty of wildlife, deer, raccoons, birds, and alligators. We didn't see any gators but didn't really look either. A little far from the city of Houston, but that's ok unless you are going in frequently. Verizon service for the internet was not available. We would return.

Date of Stay:

Very unfriendly signage as you enter the park, i.e. "All who enter must pay; You are responsible to know the rules", no welcome, we're glad you came. While sites are adequate it seems crowded. The men's restroom was unuseable. No data available on Verizon. Pretty tall trees. We will try to find another place next time.

Very nice state park with nice sites. This one even has sewer. However, the men's room was filthy, the one commode stall was closed and out of order. Outdated restroom facilities. Nice trails and beautiful setting. We would return.

Super nice park. Very friendly staff. Nice sites. We could only get in overflow, but from what we could see of the sites, they are really nice, wide, concrete. Only demerit was one of the laundry rooms was small. We would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Traffic noise ruins this park. A very busy highway right next to the park means traffic noise is significant and never lets up. Had to sleep with ear plugs it was so bad. Why an otherwise nice park was built so close to a busy highway is a mystery. Sites are nice but too close together. Wi-Fi was sporadic and slow. We will not return.

A huge Encore park designed for long term stays with park models and many activities and facilities, e.g. heated pool, shuffleboard, bocce courts, horseshoe pits, and RC car race track. A remodeled laundry room is very nice. It also has cable TV and full hookups with good utilities. However, the office is not open on weekends, which is inconvenient for short time stays, the Wi-Fi is not free except in the main hall, the interior roads are narrow, and RVs are normally parked on unpaved ground, which means if there is, or has been rain, the RV has to be parked on the paved patio area, leaving no patio area for sitting out. Sites are adequate but not roomy. Considering all the parks available in the valley, we will look for another park in the future.

This is a nice commercial park. Some sites look to be very close but ours had good space, gravel, and level. Utilities were good, but be careful of high water pressure, which they warn you about. Nice concrete patio with table. Excellent Wi-Fi and cable tv. Only demerit was noise from a paper recycling plant outside south end of park. Neighborhood is a little run down, but still some good places to eat nearby, i. e. Luby's Cafeteria. Easy to get downtown either by car, 3 1/2 miles on freeway, or by bus ($1.20 per trip), with a stop right at park entrance. We would stay again.

A beautiful state park. What it lacks in amenities (no sewer, no 50 amps, no tv, no Wi-Fi) is more than made up by wildlife, birding, hiking, scenery, fishing, tubing in the summer (not January), wide, level sites, well spaced, friendly rangers. We will definitely stay again.

Date of Stay:

Friendly owners who give lots of information about the area, places to eat, etc. Sites are somewhat narrow but hookups are easy to access and work well. There are tables available but not next to RV. They don't take credit cards and don't have cable, but a few over the air stations are available. Clear view to sky for satellite. While sites are kept clean and they give help in parking, a little pricey for what you get. There are many other parks in the area. If returning to the area, we would look for another park.

The best sites we have found in a Texas State Park; wide, level, paved back-ins, with enough room to park the towed by the side of the RV. Good utility hoop-ups, but no sewer which is typical for a state park. Lake is down substantially but still good views. We had a steady 2 bars of Verizon 4g. Not spotty as reported by older reviews, probably due to new cell towers in the area. We would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Small, very quiet, out of the way, with deer roaming in the park. Good, full hookup utilities, TV, and excellent Wi-Fi. No public restrooms, showers, or pool. Fairly level, gravel, pull through site. Very nice lady at check-in. They do no take any credit or debit cards, cash or checks only. We would stay again. Wimberley is a unique, artist hill country with intriguing shops and galleries. We paid for 6 nights and the 7th was free.

The term sardines comes to mind. Extremely close sites. They try to fill every square inch of space. Big rigs should certainly avoid this place. We had a back in space for a 35 feet motorhome, with an unusable table at the rear. The site was so narrow, we could not put out the awning, it would have touched our neighbors slide out. Restrooms are totally inadequate. One urinal and two stalls in the men's room. Estes Park is beautiful, but we will not return to this park.

Very nice overnight stop. Wide, level, gravel sites with excellent hookups. Some slight train noise but did not really bother us. Friendly, helpful managers. Would stay again.
