We've stayed in many RV parks, and this is at the very top of the list. Gorgeous setting in the east Texas pines, perfectly maintained, long, level concrete sites with utility hook-ups arranged well. Nice fenced dog run with doggie bags. (The only thing I'd fault them for is they don't have a place to deposit the bags - you either walk to the dumpster or take them home. Trash can would be nice.) The park is surrounded by large trees and they've planted many within the park. There are several "nature trails" and a large grass area at the back to let the dogs play. There is a very nice playground and a pool - neither of which we needed as we are definitely "seniors". Highly recommend if you're in the area.

This RV park just keeps getting better and better. The owner has taken a trailer park and made it into a first-class RV park. All sites are concrete pads - long and level. Utilities are well-located. There are quite a few semi-permanents as there are many roofers taking care of the roofs damaged by hail recently. However, every site is kept clean and free of clutter. One of the real pluses is that the owner put a gate at the back so you can access the two mile park run/walk. Another plus: the owner has done much to ensure the security of his guests. This is the place to stay if visiting Killeen.

Once again a wonderful visit to this RV park. Check-in easy, guided to site. Pull-through site was long, level, and all utilities well located. Park was immaculate, as always. Some appear to be full time, and some are loyal Aggies who rent the spot year around, but use it primarily during football season. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting College Station. Another highlight: a very short distance from the Bush library. A must-see regardless of your political leanings.

Beautiful RV park on Lake Pauline very close to the highway but with no noise. All sites have many large trees providing great shade. Owner is extremely kind and helpful. Park is extremely neat and well maintained. Lots of room between sites, which are generally very long and level. Some of the sites are on the lake and have small decks so you can sit out and watched the birds.

This park is an engineering marvel. Branson has very little level ground, and this park was built on severely steep terrain. We had requested a pull-through. Upon arrival we were told they didn't have any - although their map shows 8. The problem is they are very difficult to get into if you are a 45' rig. The access to at least four was so steep that you would drag the bottom of the coach when you reached the level area. Their web site says they are big rig friendly, but let me assure you it is very tight getting in and out. The park is well-kept and the staff was great. It is very close to the center of the entertainment district. Dog walk is at the bottom of the hill, which makes for great exercise when you have to walk back up to your rig. It is gated and they provide you with a swipe card for which they require a refundable $10 deposit. If you leave when the office isn't open, they will mail the deposit to you, less $2 for handling???

Very odd directions on web site. Office location is also very odd - we traveled 1/2 of the RV park before finding it. A nice lady met us at the office and led us to our spot. Not very clear on the rate - there was no paperwork done, no map, no brochure. Paid in cash. This park is really spread out and the transient area is quite separate from the rest. The only thing we could find in the transient area was a laundry, which looked clean. No trash bins in the area - the dumpster was located in the lower area on the way out. The park was clean, had very nice, long, level pull-throughs. No Wi-Fi.

This park has easy access, friendly and helpful staff who lead you to your site, a beautiful setting, and long and level pull-throughs accommodating 45' motorhome with toad. Great playground for kids, very dog-friendly, immaculate grounds. They also have a cafe that serves breakfast and dinner for a very nominal $. Dinner last night was great and service better than most restaurants. Wi-Fi worked very well. We'd stay again.

     

I-35 RV Park

Beautiful park, great staff. Can't overdo praise for the park. It has many long, reasonably level pull-throughs, very large field for dogs (actually a golf driving range), very unique dog wash stand, horse-shoe pit and other niceties. If that isn't enough, they have a small cafe and they provide a REAL breakfast for free. Eggs to order, cereal, coffee, milk, o.j. - the works. Our breakfast was great. We called to confirm and the manager alerted us to construction along I-35 and gave us a route to follow to get to the park. Sadly I suspect the construction will be going on for some time, but it isn't the fault of the park and they are well worth your time and effort to get to them.

This park is off the old Hwy 190 and in a much older section of Killeen. We had little trouble finding it as we used map quest directions. The GPS actually gave us the right instructions as well. We had reservations but called the owner when we were about 15 minutes out. He gave us the gate code (the entire park is gated) and met us just after we arrived. He has done a wonderful job of converting an old mobile home park into a first class RV park and the effort he has put in is very visible. He is also the consummate southern gentleman. There is still a little work to do, but all in all, the park is clean, easy to navigate, and quiet. There is a very nice park behind the park available for jogging or walking pets. We will stay here again.

We decided to get away from the fireworks on New Years. We spent four very enjoyable days at Maverick Ranch, drove through Big Bend Ranch State Park, and hiked in Big Bend National Park. While Maverick Ranch is a little further away from the national park, it is well worth the drive as nothing in the vicinity compares to it. It is well designed, well kept, and staffed by very conscientious people. The sites are long and there is plenty of room between sites. They've even managed to grow a little grass and some trees, despite the weather. The only negative, and it is nit-picking, but whoever designed the computer program for checking in needs to try doing it as a customer. Despite the best efforts of the staff, it is a slow and arduous process. We were shown to our site, and the check-in process was complete when they dropped by later to give us our receipt. Oh, almost forgot. On the Lajitas/Maverick Ranch website one is told to go to the Lajitas Resort to check in. Not so! Furthermore, finding the Lajitas Resort office is a challenge made more difficult if you're driving a 45' RV pulling a toad. The directions were terrible. None of that should be read to take away from the enjoyment of staying at a first class RV park.

First, lets recognize where this park is and quit harping about the sand and wind. West Texas is known for both. The park is clean, easily accessible, has good interior dirt roads, long pull-through sites with reasonable distances between each. The staff is efficient, helpful, and friendly. We've stayed here a couple of times and never had a complaint about the park. Now, as to the cafe. We've eaten a couple of dinners there and they were good, old southern cooking. The wine and beer selection is good with reasonable prices. We've only experienced one breakfast and may have caught them on a bad day, but the service was horrible. Over 45 minutes to get two orders of eggs, sausage and coffee. The cook seemed to be over her head as it appeared she could only work on one order at a time. That being said, we'd stay here again and even give the breakfast a try as the food was hot and good.

We returned to College Station for our 50th HS reunion and stayed at the park. It is centrally located but the previous post about getting to it is correct. We missed the turn the first time and had to make the tour around the park to enter again. Park management is exceptional. Friendly, quick check-in, and we were shown to the site. The interior roads are great and they have concrete slabs at each site. Easy access for a big rig (45' plus toad). Centrally located to most things in College Station. Just remember, if it is football season getting a spot is very difficult as this is Aggie Land and the alumni reserve a site for the entire season, whether they are at home or not. We'll be back!

The entry to the campground is difficult to see as you approach from the interstate and extremely rough. The interior roads and sites are gravel with some grass and trees between a few of the sites. The sites are not that level: once our motorhome leveled itself, the front step was almost two feet off the ground. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We did encounter a first in our many, many nights of camping at RV parks. Someone apparently took exception to our accent lights which we use for security, particularly when at a park like this where there is absolutely no security lighting: or any lights for that matter, AND PULLED OUR POWER CORD out. I guess we can be thankful they apparently didn't vandalize anything else. We realize the owners of the park weren't responsible, but it does say something to the "class" of those staying here, most of whom appear to be full-timers. If in the area you might consider a park with better security and lighting.

Start with a well-designed check-in parking area, wonderful and friendly staff, paved roads, level sites with well-groomed grass between each, trees and concrete pad and picnic table, and immaculate grounds and buildings, then add the proximity to Yellowstone west entrance, and this park is worth the high $ per night. We would recommend to others and return again.

Immaculate park. Most of the occupants are here for long term, probably working in the oil/gas field, but the park is well-maintained. Roads are all asphalt, sites have privacy fences between each, and each has an asphalt pad with a table on it. Fifty amp service was dependable, and Wi-Fi was great. They seem to have repeaters every 100' or so. The staff is friendly, the store well-stocked, and the laundry room clean. Particularly nice is the soccer field in the rear of the park with an asphalt running track around it. This is a first class operation and we'd stay here again.
