This is a nice park, right where we need it to be during our annual migration to Texas - but. The sites are all, nearly as I can tell sloped uphill and most side to side, as well. This means I have to unhitch and level, then re-hitch in the morning, which is an irritation for just an overnight stop. This trip, when I checked the electric before hooking up, I found the hot and negative leads were crossed. I was able to use an adapter, provided by the park, to hook up to the correctly wired 50 amp outlet. Owners are very nice.

This is our second winter here. We came in last January for one month, and stayed three months. The people and activities are wonderful, the weather much better than "up nort'" (mild winters), and the area interesting with much to see and do. If you must go to a city, Corpus Christi is about 35 miles. New Wi-Fi working great. The little lakes are rife with fish (free/no license, but catch-and-release only), turtles, and shorebirds. My wife commented when we left that we had more and better friends here than "at home". We are permanent winter Texans here, welcomed by the locals - and not just for our money. Very friendly area.

I agree with the previous review on all counts. Thankfully, we arrived on New Year's Eve and the office was not staffed, or they would have had our money. There was a packet for us on the porch. The sites are very small, very narrow, and the trees are placed for maximum interference with slides. Even the streets are dead end; a very poor arrangement. Even though we had advised our trailer and truck length, the site was too small. The truck could not be gotten completely off the pavement. Camper next door was surprised we were there - stated that spot usually remained open because it was so small. Very disappointing.

VERY nice campground, and the geezer rate of $10 for holders of the Golden Age Passport can't be beat. (If you don't have one, get one - must be 62). Wooded, deer everywhere. We saw quail, turkey, woodchuck, everywhere. While some sites are reservable, many are not, and for a change, they aren't all the less desirable ones. Some sites are full hookups, some are electric only. Water and dump station available. Staff super nice. This campground is beautifully maintained. Kudos to the Corps of Engineers.

We stayed here on the way back from Yellowstone. The huge cottonwoods were a real treat; the shade was most welcome. Friendly staff, very nice laundry room. Chickens and a dog or two roamed around, not a problem. Owner is an outfitter, and I suspect that is his first love. All in all, we will look forward to returning.

In the early 80's, a tree fell on someone. The National Park Service responded by cutting down all the trees in the campground. There still are no trees. Sites are extremely small, cramped, and many are way off level. One was so far off that a part in our hitch broke due to the extreme bind. Staff was, for the most part, surly and not helpful. Other choices, any of them, are better.
