Was surprised to discover that the lake had been dry for sometime since my last visit to this park. The conditions are clearly budget cut related. The park is still clean, spacious, level, and home to the friendliest state park staff I've met in 40 plus years of camping. I was in good spot for WiFi service even though I was told not to expect it where I was to be located. The biggest disappointment is the company that used to do trail rides through the park no longer does them. You can still bring your own horses, but it was a feature I used to love about this park. San Angelo has grown up enough now that you are with 3 miles of major shopping and restaurants, but you'd never know it from inside the park.

Without hesitation the worst RV park I've ever been in and I really hate to say that. I love this town and I see what they are trying to do here, but the execution of the plan is failing miserably. I was in a premium lakefront site that was very beautiful, large and had a wonderful view. It would have been worth every penny if anything there worked and there had not been construction of another site right next to mine. This RV resort (which it is not) does not have a weekly rate for the luxury sites and at $85.00 a night I don't expect the office staff to tell me that there's free WiFi at the local McDonald's and Starbucks because their's was out for 17 days. The beautiful patio area was nicely furnished and had an outdoor sink, stove and BBQ pit. The unidentifiable goo in the sink and layer of filth on the stove made using them impossible. Of the 60 TV channels that are supposed to be available, I got exactly 14 of them. Very large and somewhat aggressive dogs are allowed to run freely on and around the shore because they "keep the ducks from coming ashore and pooping" according to the office staff. All of this nightmare was complimented by heavy equipment and, of course, the Bobcat they used beeped every time it was put in reverse. Less than 15 feet from my unit not one of the 6 people doing any of this construction or any of the park employees could be bothered to inform the campers that the water was about to be turned off. Naturally, this happened while I was in the shower. There are no resort amenities, the activities building is only available for use during their events, the store is not a store, and the disruptions of quiet hours include construction starting by 6 a.m. and trash trucks emptying dumpsters just after 4 a.m. The staff is not very knowledgeable. I was told specifically when I checked that there was no place in town that would deliver dinner to the park and was later able to find at least three that would. If you hope to direct a letter of complaint to the owner, you can't. The management refuses to disclose that information to campers. Sunset Point is a perfect example of how beauty will only take you so far when there is no substance to back it up.
