We loved this park. It's everything we always hope our next campground will be like. The sites are huge, level, and everything just about perfect. The only negative is that there wasn't more water in the river. However, that certainly is nothing they can control. Love this place!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are spacious in loops C and D but a little less so in loop A. Roads are rough but passable. The water is safe but has an odor. The fishing on the river is phenomenal if you have a boat or kayak, but still good from the bank. The park is quiet and peaceful with a large herd of 10-30 deer that wander through. The mini golf course is worn and needs attention. We love this park for the setting and fishing. It is more like a wide open state park in the size of the sites than a private campground. The staff are friendly and helpful. The park is kid and pet friendly with a small playground but lots of running room. We will definitely be back when we are in the area. We stayed as a part of the Thousand Trails program so the cost was actually $0 We camped here in a Motorhome.
TTN rate for 50 AMP. Staff here was incredible. D section sets on the crumbling river bank well above the Colorado River. Views are awesome, but you put yourself at risk to try to climb down the bank to the river. We set up in A section with great sites, set well apart, and definitely not cramped together. Restrooms and showers are clean and functional. Laundry room clean. CG is quiet. Our Wi-Fi cards and cell phones worked well. Deer are visible but they stay away from campers and feeding isn't allowed. Boat ramp down to the river was muddy and very slick. No one had launched there in quite a long time. This is a very nice CG and we would definitely stop here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is absolutely beautiful. There are deer wandering around everywhere. The Colorado river runs along the lower campground. There are lots of beautiful sites but I'm not sure who qualifies to use them. The lower campground was closed due to potential flooding. We were put in the A loop which we hated, as most of the sites were crammed together and had no privacy. I would go back again if I could stay in the lower campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park, well maintained, big rig friendly. Gracious host with lots of information. Excellent BBQ on Friday nights at Peter's in Ellinger. Heated pool and indoor spa. Would be a 10 but only outdoor showers at the pool/spa and water never heated up. Lots of room between sites. Would return again. We had a 50amp FHU site on the river. Verizon and AT&T 4bars/3/4g Rate reflects member rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Passport America discount and $3 surcharge for 50 amp service. Roads badly in need of repaving. Ranger was helpful & pleasant. Pool was recently redone. Hot tub is inside. Pool/hot tub area are a fair distance from the campground. Bathrooms need updating. We would stay overnight again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our rate was only $3 because we are Thousand Trails members and paid the extra for 50 amps service. This park has nice large sites like a state or federal park and has deer roaming everywhere! The staff is nice but TT keeps cutting back on staff/hours (according to one of the staff) and it is starting to show. While there are great facilities like pool/hot tub/mini golf, they are looking tired. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Much like the many great 1000 Trails preserves of yesteryear . . . fairly simple, well groomed, not TOO many leased sites (like so many other 1000 Trails parks are now!). Seems to be pretty good member-generated gatherings, assisted by a good park manager. Other staff members are good, too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I'm a Thousand Trails member, this park is very nice with large sites. It is a typical thousand trails park. My only complaint is as a member I don't feel I should have to pay extra for a premium site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The roads are really bad. The access road of gravel and sand creates terrible dust that gets into every crack and covers the towed vehicle. Inside the park there are potholes everywhere. However, once into the park, the sites are pretty and level. This is a membership park that has some sites open to the public. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed 3 days at this TT park, which has major potential. Like many parks in the TT network, it is a little 'tired' looking. The main road through the preserve needs major repair, the preserve includes so much land that keeping it all mowed is a challenge. The Wi-Fi is in the clubhouse only, and is weak. And the buildings could use a facelift. That said, the preserve is huge, the sites are separated into river sites, lower sites, and hill sites. Sites are gravel, level, and wide. Hookups worked well. There are large trees that provide shade on many of the sites. Over air and satellite service is available from the sites on the hill. The pool just opened and was clean. There is a miniature golf putting area and a boat dock. Numerous deer roamed the preserve daily. This is one of our favorite campgrounds in the TT network due to the open, spacious feel of the preserve. The $3 per day charge was for 50 amp service with a TT membership. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel roads in poor condition, sites are gravel. The grass was really high when we were there and there were ant mounds everywhere. (they did invade our trailer) The staff was nice. They park looks like it is having some renovations in the works. It could be a great park when (if) those are done. It was very quiet and dark at night. They river was really low and not flowing in areas. (yuck) Overall... an OK park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
First time stay at a Thousand Trails Preserve. The Staff was fantastic, informative, helpful; could not have been any better. The grounds were extremely clean and well maintained. Camp sites are very large, most of which offer gravel pads, a few offer concrete partical pads and padio. No cable service offered at the sites, matter of fact the lower sites don't receive any TV antenna broadcast reception (but then that ain't all bad) WiFi available in the Activity Center which also has a couple of TVs, pool table, ping pong, table activities and great cold A/C. Rest Rooms spotless, pool area well maintaned. Preserve also offers a few different out door court games and putt putt golf. Roads in good condition, some gravel some paved, some a combination of the two. TT Preserve does have a private boat ramp to the river. The preserve is located near town which offers a few great restaurants...great food, big helpings, reasonable prices for those times you don't feel like cooking. A word of advise, in the summer months it is HOT!! But so is the rest of Texas. Price shown is for a Thousand Trails membership offer of $0 plus $3 per night for 50 amp service. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice older Thousand Trails park. They have upgraded quite a few sites with 50 AMP, concrete patios and well packed gravel for the parking pad. We were able to find a site that allowed us to use our satellite and still have some shade. There were deer wandering the park and lots of areas in which to walk the dog and get some exercise. We did not use the pool or spa but they were available. The park is pretty convenient to restaurants, which is not always the case with Thousand Trails parks. We enjoyed the park and would stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a relatively small Thousand Trails park, but is very nice. Management obviously has put considerable money into maintenance and painting since our last visit a few months ago. The grounds are well-maintained, and the showers are very clean. Sites are large and relatively well-separated, especially in the loop nearest the river. Although there is no local Wi-Fi, Verizon connectivity is very good. The price noted is for non-members, who are now welcome at all Thousand Trails parks on a space-available basis. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great Campground! We had a river front site, full hook up with 30 amp. Deer herd was fun to watch. Our ATT internet card didn't work, but there's Wi-Fi in the activity center. We will definitely stay here again! As this is one of our membership parks we did not pay for our site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A "membership park" that lives up to the standard expected of 1000 Trails preserves. There is a resident herd of deer that roam freely throughout the park. Well worth the 8 mile drive from I-10. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I enjoyed this park because it was in the country, however you could still hear the train in the distance. The sites were big enough for big rigs and slides. The preserve was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Had a great Miniature Golf Course. Verizon Wireless worked well. We were able to get satellite reception. The surrounding towns had many tourist activities and sights to see. I would return, and recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is in a great location. The only thing i can say bad about it is does not have enough sewer sites. If you want to stay two or three weeks they have a system of getting sewer sites as they come available. We stayed five days and it was great. Had a herd of deer pass through the park in morning and night. For me i liked the non sewer sites better they were not as close together and were easier to get into. We are Thousand Trail members so it did not cost us anything to camp here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a relaxed, member only, park with large pecan trees and many deer roaming. On this stay the hot tub and pool were closed but most other facilities were open. A new manager is in place but he is not very friendly, rarely speaks to members or guests. The maintenance staff do a great job and the housekeeping is great with clean bathrooms and buildings. We would recommend this park to all who can use it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy on and off I-10. Staff was great, sites grass but level. Hook ups well placed. Hard pack dirt interior roads and exit needs smoothed out. Very rough exit road with many ruts. Large sites easily fit big rigs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access to Campground off Hwy 10. All camping spots are gravel. They are level and most have shade trees. Because of that I could only get partial reception on my satellite dish. The manager walked me to my spot and guided me in. She is a delightful lady. The electric amperage was 113, water pressure is good. The pull thru site was long enough to accomodate both the coach and the toad. I would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an old KOA that was bought by the present owners 12 years ago. It is my guess that they have done nothing to the park in that time, but suck the money out of it. Though it could be nice, it isn't. There are many old trailers that have been there for many years and have piles of junk around them. The spaces are of the type seen in KOA's in the past when trailers didn't have slides and a big trailer was 22'. They are small and VERY close together. We were planning on staying longer when we found this park online; after pulling in we knew that this park was only a stop over for us. The owner was nice and helpful; it's just that the park was depressing. I will say that the Wi-Fi was strong and the laundry was new and clean. We would only ever stay here again as an overnight stop over. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Interesting place. Lots of nice shade trees. Easy off/on I-10. Quiet park with level gravel sites. Some of the long-termers look like the road company from "Deliverance", but we had a quiet, one night stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice Park. Had quite a few campers staying there, I am sure some were oil field workers, but we only seen 3 other sets of campers while we were outside walking our dog and during the time we were swimming. Clean and Quiet. We had just purchased our travel trailer and on our way back home we stayed the night to "Test it out". We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice campground well off the Interstate. Call ahead if checking in after hours as manager is not near the office. Great Mexican restaurant withing walking distance across the street. Only downside to this campground is the many permanent residents who begin leaving for work at 5:30 AM. Lots of pick-up truck noise and doors slamming. Wi-Fi worked fine as did the cable TV. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It appears this campground has tried to shoe horn in as many RVs as possible, and has two RVs connecting to the same power panels. We were on a 50A breaker and the trailer next to us was on the 30A breaker. To much power draw and we lost one leg of our service. After some effort, we were moved to another site. The first site was mostly gravel but the second site was rutted dirt. The campground is full of pipeline crew folks and many of them tend to leave early for work which is not conducive to us old folks sleeping in. We will boon dock at a truck stop rather than stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good park for short stay. Many sites occupied by "monthly" campers. Very good customer service, clean, level and good pull through sites for us. Do be aware of rooster crowing at nearby yard however at 5 AM! We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a pleasant surprise.We arrived after dark and the staff set us up immediately. It is a clean and good place. It seems like an interesting small town and if we were in the area we would spend a day enjoying it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There are mostly full-timers in the park and only a limited number of sites available for overnight guests. We were parked in a site littered with numerous cigarette butts and trash. We tracked in a lot of dirt and debris into our trailer as the sites are just dirt. The restrooms were very clean, but a little heat would have been very welcome. It is easy access on and off I-10. It is a little noisy, but not to objectionable. The actual cost was $23.50 and reflects a Good Sam discount. At 5:45 AM, one of the residents near us started his diesel pickup truck and let it idle for 5 minutes, followed by the slamming of doors. From then until 6:30 AM it was a constant stream of people leaving for work. TV cable was excellent, great Wi-Fi and the sites were fairly level. As others reported, there was no one in the office. We found the manager (?) doing laundry and he then came to check us in. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
WOW: never seen restrooms and showers so clean. The bathrooms were very nicely decorated and always clean! The campground manager was very nice. Lots of ground to walk a pet. Nice small wooded area by a stream. We saw about 30 deer one day. Very convenient location. Many places to eat in Columbus. Their Internet was very good and easy to hook up to. TV cable was excellent. Everyone was friendly. Sites are fairly level. Although the website says no railroad tracks, there is a railroad track up a ways and you can hear the horn twice a day but not enough to interfere with sleeping. They do have a library, but we found it difficult to find someone in the office to use the library. They do not man the office, only when someone pulls in. This is a disadvantage. The only real big problem we found is that when it rains it is very muddy. They need to add plenty more gravel. We stayed here a week and would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was with a group for a weekend rally. The staff was terrific. My heat would not come on in my rig so I called the office asking if they had someone to help me figure it out. Within half a hour I had help and it was fixed. Since it was getting cold I couldn't have been happier. We were allowed full use of the meeting room which was very clean. The bathrooms were decorated in a very cute fashion: more than any other camp restroom I've seen. The Wi-Fi was good and strong as was the cable TV. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful office personnel. A great stop after driving through Houston on I-10. Site sufficient size, with fire pit and picnic table under a tree. Many full-timers living there. Bathrooms are extremely well-kept and attractive. Stayed 1 night because on a schedule, but would happily have stayed longer. Lots to see in the area (painted churches). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little, well-kept campground. Lots of grassy area for tents (no hookups). Sites are easy, level pull-throughs with picnic table and tree. I can see where the one poster felt the sites were too close together because if they used every site, your near-side slide would probably be darn close to your neighbor's awning but, at least while we were here, they parked campers at every other site which was very nice. Several permanents here; several seasonals; and several campers belonging to men working over towards Houston. No problem with electricity; cable TV is great; and they have 5 Wi-Fi sites to choose from. Close to shopping (HEB, small Wal-mart) and a great seafood restaurant: Nancy's Seafood Grill. Don't miss that! We'll stay here again if we're in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park was small and near the highway, so you hear highway noise, but it's still an acceptable place to stay for a weekend (I've seen worse!). Their power and cable work well so we were happy. The scenery at the park, on the other hand, left much to be desired. But we traveled around to make up for it. The park hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Pool was small but and not open when we visited in May. They have a nice patio with rocking chairs and swings around their club house. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The spot I was in was so narrow that the neighbor's slide was so close to my slide, you could hear their TV. There was electrical problems on the pad. The 30 amp wiring was sticking up in the air. This place was a shambles. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff very friendly. Good grass or dirt level sites. Not bad at all. Good space between sites. Would stay here again. We camped here in truck/camper but most were either motorhomes or fifth wheels and there was space enough for slide outs, etc. Wifi and cable worked fine. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Nice place but the owners were somewhat rude. It was one of my first RV park experiences and was concerned this would be the way they all were. Have been comfortably surprised that this is the exception and not the rule. It seems those who are most concerned with the aesthetic value of their parks, forget that if you treat people with as much importance, they'll forgive a bit of the aesthetic shortcomings. But treat them poorly and they remember for a very long time! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I really liked this park. Restroom is clean AND cute, owner very nice and had little bandanas for my dogs, and a package of microwave popcorn for me. Plenty of dog-walking area. These are grass sites and it was raining so things were a bit muddy, but all together a nice experience. This campground is not marked on the highway signs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here overnight. Easy on and off freeway, cute little campsite. Owner friendly. Wifi did not work, but were informed that it was $2 if it did work. Sites were level. Not a bad place to stay for more than one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There is an extra charge for WiFi and 50 amps. You must pay by cash or check to receive a discount on the daily rate. Their website is representitive of the park. The park is less than a mile from Walmart, fast food, and a grocery store. A very suitable park for an overnight stop on interstate 10 in eastern Texas. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I stay here 5 times a year, and have never had any problems. If you stay Sat. nite, go and see the Columbus Opry C&W music show in town. Rest Rooms & Showers are clean, and I can always find a spot for my pop-up. We camped here in a camper.
