Nothing fancy but an economical alternative to other parks in the area. Sites are grass, utilities are in the back with one pedestal shared by four sites. When the park is not full, it is simple to pull through and have utilities on the side. Cell signal was good and no obstructions to the satellite. The $18.00 rate reflects a senior citizen discount; standard rate is $22.00.

This is a very rustic, no frills park located in the countryside 15 miles southwest of downtown San Antonio. The sites are level grass, gravel/dirt. Although children are welcome there is no playground or other activities for kids. There are no restrooms or showers at this time. Tents are allowed with prior management approval. We had a strong cell signal and clear satellite access. The nightly rate was actually $9.50 and reflects a Passport America discount.

This is a lovely, quiet park owned and operated by the City of San Augustine. Each site, which is more than spacious, has full hook-ups, picnic tables, and grills. The roads and pads are asphalt paved with flush concrete curbing. The grounds very well maintained, the trees are mature, and there are no burrs to get into doggie paws. Our cell signal was strong and our satellite was easy to aim. We paid full price, but discounts are honored for Coast to Coast Good Neighbor, Escapees, and Passport America memberships. Mary Kay’s Country Diner in town on Hwy 96 North is a great restaurant that has a big menu and lots of local flavor. We will definitely stay here again.

This campground is packed full in October during the Covered Bridge Festival, but we stayed in July and just about had the place to ourselves. The sites are level grass, the grounds are well maintained, the owners are friendly, and the town in within walking distance. We had a strong cell signal and clear satellite access. The $14 nightly rate is an average based on $100 per week. Credit cards are not accepted. Rockville is located in Parke County which is called the Covered Bridge Capital of the World. There five different color coded routes that go by or through some 30 bridges out in the countryside. In nearby Dana there is a state historic site dedicated to Ernie Pyle, the WWII correspondent. The museum exhibits are well worth the nominal admission fee.
