We stayed down by the creek. Nice woods behind our trailer. The road noise was quite apparent. Our dog had a good time swimming in the creek. We toured Johnson Ranch while here. No Walmart or other big grocery store, although there was a Lowes in Johnson City. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Check in was quiet and easy. Camp worker on duty was very nice and friendly. Sites are gravel but still level. It was very dusty partially because of the dirt interior roads and partially because of the drought. Miller Creek is attractive and peaceful. This is a good location to visit a number of cities nearby plus all of the wineries between Johnson City and Fredericksburg. No cable but can still receive a few local channels. Will stay here again if we are in this area. One oddity we noticed was that a number of women walk in the very early hours of the morning, while still dark, and they talk and laugh very loudly. We have not encountered this before. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here a week & really enjoyed the stay. Perfect location to tour the hill country and still visit Austin & San Antonio. Nice fenced dog run & plenty of walking area along Miller Creek with plenty of grass & low number of stickers/burrs. Plenty of over the air TV stations & Wi-Fi was better than expected. Nice workout area. Level & roomy sites but had a sewer hook-up that was higher than my discharge port. Didn't notice any noise. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects weekly rate. Nice clean park with good location for touring around Texas Hill country. Sites and roads are gravel with grass in between and maturing trees. Some back in sites are by the river and any size rig will fit easily into this park. Park management are very nice and helpful. They do a $4 dinner each Weds. Wi-Fi was not great here but was quicker late at night. Water pressure was fairly good. I would have given it a 10 but the road noise was pretty bad and we were in the back of the park. It is a US highway, so was a little better at night, but still there. The creek is very nice and suitable for swimming. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Enjoyed our brief stay as we were just looking for a nice weekend get-away. Level sites, good power and water, nice sized space. Bath house clean and well appointed. Clubhouse with large fireplace was pretty cool and a nice place to hang out. Dogs enjoyed the walk across the stream. Place will be awesome once Miller Creek fills up again after this long Texas drought. Lots to do in the area. Will return again soon. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Price reflects weekly rate. It may not be a perfect 10 but its darn close to it (for us). Good access, large level graveled sites with some grass area. As noted, little shade but not a factor this time of year. Park does have scheduled activities in addition to the supper. Owner is very committed to having a quality park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stopped here for a night and stayed three months. They have a nightly "social" hour and the owner is a active participant. The park has activities every day and they are well done. Music night and tours of local venues. Probably the best park we have stayed in after camping for 20 years. Don't miss this one. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here at rally. The campground is nice and even though the creek is low it's a great place to walk and to let your dogs play in the water. The hosts were nice and the rally hall adequate. It was a pleasant stay and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a fairly large park, but the night we were here, it was jammed with a Casita trailer rally with two of these little RVs per space. The spaces were rather small with a gravel/dirt base, but mostly level. It's located close to Johnson City and to major roads in the area. As parks go, it was OK, but by no means deluxe. This is not a resort, by any stretch of the imagination. We had a nice dinner at the Silver K Cafe, in nearby Johnson City. If you have time, a visit to the LBJ state park visitor center in Johnson City, and LBJ's Texas White House at the LBJ ranch (LBJ National Historical Park) are worth a visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites are wide and level. The park owner is very friendly and wants to make sure your stay is a good one. All the people here are very friendly. They have an area enclosed with a fire pit, its a great gathering place and well used. We hope to come back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice Park and one that is definitely a must stop if in the Johnson City area. Owner continuing to add and improve their park. Shows a real care and interest in making guests welcome. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We loved this campground. Even though it’s small, it has a lot to offer. The roads and sites are gravel and there is a lot of room between sites. The campground is clean and so are the bathrooms and the laundry room. They even have a fitness and sauna room and a Jacuzzi on site. Every Wednesday they serve dinner in the recreation hall. Cost was only $3.00 per person. The staff is very friendly and they constantly ask if there is anything they can do for you. The campground is close to Stonewall and Johnson City. We visited the LBJ Ranch and LBJ’s boyhood home. We also drove 40 minutes to Austin to visit the LBJ Library and Museum and Lady Bird Wildflower Center. The drawback is that there is no cable TV or shade trees. Hence, this is the reason we ranked it an 8. This is not a campground for you if you have kids. There is no pool or playground. It’s geared for an older population. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a back-in space, closer to the creek, which was nice. The creek is pretty, and we enjoyed walking our kitties and dogs by it. This is a nice enough campground, but I think the high marks most people give it are due to the social activities, which we didn't participate in. We meant to attend the Wednesday night weekly dinner ($3/person for spaghetti, caesar salad, garlic bread, and cheesecake), but we didn't make it back from our day's outing in time. The park has quite a bit of highway noise, but our RV is well-insulated and pretty soundproof, and I guess you just tune it out. The hot tub was in a fenced in, dark room at the back of the park. It didn't look too inviting, or used by anyone, and we didn't try it. The exercise room is back there too. It rained the day we showed up, and our rear leveling jacks sank down into the mud in our site! We had to put a big board we had with us (the motorcycle ramp we carry in our truck) down to put the jacks on. When the park gets rain, much of it gets muddy. There is not enough gravel covering everything. Also, the office is only open 10am-1pm on Sundays. I didn't know this and wondered why I couldn't get ahold of them to make a reservation. It also made it impossible to get quarters and do my laundry on Sunday afternoon (I'd forgotten about their closure)! If you do stay in the Johnson City area, try the Hill Country Cupboard. Their food, especially the chicken fried steak, is terrific! Also the Silver K in town is a neat place and seems to have very good food and a very talented singer there mid-day Sundays. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. Convenient location for visiting many different parts of the Hill Country. Staff were exceptional. Wednesday night dinners were great. Could possibly get pretty hot in the summer due to the fact there is little shade. Restrooms/showers were limited, one each for men and women, but clean. There's a large recreation hall and also a large firepit area. Would definitely stay here again We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice campground six miles outside of Johnson City, Tx. Manager has a fire pit and a fire going almost every day and night. The only downside we experienced was the restrooms were very small and the plumbing did work very well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spent a week here in November: in a back-in site by the stream. All sites are large, so we never felt crowded. The people in charge are very friendly, and helpful as is the owner. We enjoyed our visit so much we will return for another week in December. Within driving distance to many interesting towns for shopping and site-seeing. We highly recommend this RV Resort. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Located in Texas Hill Country, this RV resort is central to Austin, San Antonio, Johnson City, Fredericksburg and several other interesting towns. The resort is beautifully landscaped and well maintained with large level pull-through lots and several back-ins overlooking Miller Creek. We can't say enough about the friendly staff and the owner who seemed to be non-stop enhancing an already great RV resort. Our dog appreciated the "Dog Run", and we appreciated the "Y'all Come" dinner held on Wednesday nights. The food and fellowship were fabulous and the small charge couldn't have begun to cover the spread. This will be the only place we'll stay when in the area again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The cutest and friendliest RV Park that we have ever stayed in. They have just put in a Hot Tub, Dry Sauna and Exercise Room. They have an open fire pit at the Watering Hole and a Fireplace outside the Rec Hall.They also have free firewood for all of their quests. On Wed nights they have $2 HOME COOKED meals with Texas Hold'em afterwards ( just bring your own drink of choice). There is Monday night football on the big screen TV in the Rec Hall and local Hill Country Music on the weekends ( see the calendar on their website for menu and music dates) We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have recently moved to Texas and this resort was located between San Antonio and Austin where my husband's territory is. I actually chose this RV park because of another good review that I had seen. The prices are very reasonable, the park is clean, and the people are super friendly. There is easy access to neighboring towns that have Wal-Mart, Walgreens, and loads of resources. They've done so much to make us feel welcome and have been so accommodating. We have now decided to stay put here for a couple of months. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the best campgrounds on this trip. Level landscaped sites, friendly people. The first night here was a community meal attended by about 20 persons in the campground. Good food and good conversation. Very clean and well kept park. I would certainly stay here again and wouldn't hesitate to stay for an extended period of time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Have previously stayed when original owners had the park but current owner has done some major renovations. Much nicer of a stay and would definitely stop again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a very nice park. We would stay again and again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Although the creek was bone dry due to the severe drought in the Texas Hill Country, this was still a beautiful park. Easy to get in and out, wide spaces. Friendly, helpful owners and staff, with more improvements being made as we were there. Spotless laundry area. Plenty of activities in the park, and several Texas attractions nearby. While they claimed their listing in the Escapees Directory was a "mistake," they offered a small discount anyway. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really loved this park! The staff was excellent and very friendly, and they were always available to answer any questions you might have. They do have cable TV, but it wasn't very clear, so we put out our satellite dish. Their free Wi-Fi worked well for us. The sites are very nice gravel with grass, and they are spaced far apart to accommodate any size rig, with easy in and out access. This would be a wonderful park for any kind of rally RV'ers, and they have a terrific rec room and outdoor area for get togethers! The laundry room was spotless, with two washers and two dryers, at $1.50 per load. They also ask that you use liquid detergent if possible. This park is right on the highway and has large signage so you won't miss it. We visited friends in Austin, about an hour away, and also shopped in Marble Falls, which is about 20 minutes from the park, with very nice restaurants and nice little shops for tourists. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this beautiful park to any and all! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The new owner's have really improved this resort. Everything was clean, neat, and orderly. The restrooms/showers were always exceptionally clean! We were most impressed with the management. Friendly, caring, and thoughtful. These folks really care and have already made this RV resort a "must" in my book! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

First and foremost the staff bent over backwards to make sure everything was to our liking. Every area of the campground was immaculately clean. I especially liked the outdoor fireplace, which they kept burning all day and late into the night. It was under a covered patio with chairs -- a great place to spend some time. A dog run was provided and stocked with "doggie bags". The club house / rec center was clean and well stocked. This is a great place to hold an RV rally! This park was not just Kid and Pet friendly, they actually welcomed Kids and pets just like they were members of our family. (Let me see, the last time that happened was at grandma's house). We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here five nights while exploring the hill country. Our site was a back in next to the creek and although the creek was dry this time of year, the site had a nice view from our windows and a private area for us to sit out with a fire-ring had we chosen to have a campfire. Site was fairly level but sewer hookup was too far to the rear of the site for us to use without an extension. The park is very clean and well maintained and had my most favorite amenity - a dog wash. This was such a simple thing for the owners to add, outside next to the laundry room (a laundry tub with hot and cold water, spray hose and a card table next to it so you can towel the dog off). Our dog is a miniature Aussie and weighs about 35 lbs, so too big to wash in the RV. I'd give this park a 10 for that reason alone! Staff here were very friendly and helpful. New owner has been here about 18 months now and has planted trees, grass, etc. and I understand refurbished the recreation hall, laundry and showers. This is a great place to use as a base camp while exploring the nearby state parks, Fredericksburg, Austin, etc. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed there during our evacuation and the campgrounds were very pretty and well-kept. They were very accommodating and hospitable. We came in with 2 trailers, 12 people and 10 dogs and they went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. Our sites were right by the dog run which made our stay there so much easier with all our pets. Some of our family stayed in a cabin by the stream area and enjoyed their stay very much. This is definitely a family, pet friendly park and we are certainly going to come back, hopefully under better circumstances than a hurricane! We highly recommend this park and all they have to offer. Blums, Orange, Texas We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean. Very friendly. Very easy in and out. Very over priced since it is so far away from major attractions. All gravel or grass. In the rest of Texas a park with this remote a location would charge 20-22 a night at most. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a RV Park that is very nice looking, over-priced (I can only attest to the monthly rate of $365.00), and weekly ($160.00)which they are raising. The owner seems to have no regard for his customers. He is enlarging the park, which is fine, but runs his tractor (which is extremely loud) from early morning until late in the evening. I could see running it half a day but to be continual is very nerve-racking. For $365.00 going to $385 for constant loud noise is ridiculous. We called the office but it didn't matter. I would not reccommend this place because as friendly as they seem when you go in the office, it's like having to listen to a jack-hammer all day and no one cares. It is one of the worse experiences we have ever had and especially for $385.00. Disgusting! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very well laid out park. Owner super lady and very accommodating to customers. Basic amenities but close enough to Austin to be able to receive reception on antenna. Would definitely stay again if through area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The relatively new campground is comfortable, clean, friendly and accessible to area attractions. We visited in March, 2005 in a fifth-wheel. Cabins are also provided as well as a paddle-boat for use on the adjacent stream. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

The creek is lovely and I was here when most of the vegetation was dormant. When things blossom in this part of the state, it is pretty. Nice clear creek for fishing or canoeing. Very convenient location for exploring the Hill country. Several wineries in the area as well as the Lyndon B Johnson ranch and historical park. Fredericksburg (a popular tourist location) is 30 miles away. Very friendly staff and the sites are very easy to get into. Backins along the creek are nice. Saw many winter Texans either heading down to the valley or going back north. Located on US 281. Some road noise. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a new park and very nice. No trees to park under but you have trees down by the creek next to park. No playground equipment for kids. Roads and sites are very good. All sites have 20,30,50 amps. This park is 5 miles south of Johnson City at Hwy 281 & Hwy 290. Some road noise. Staff was nice at check in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Instant on phones at all sites. Some sites are waterfront. Quiet and clean. Nice
folks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We picked this park to visit the LBJ National and State parks. The park is in a very hilly part of Hill Country and is remote, about 8 miles to some limited services in Johnson City. Campground is about 30 miles from Austin. All sites in the water/electric camping area are paved. The park was full over Easter weekend, but on Sunday many cleared out. Fee does not include the daily per-person $5 entrance fee which adds up quickly. A Texas park pass waives those charges and pays back quickly with discounts. All sites were back-in, many were not level, but subject to correction. The area of the falls were popular with day users on a sunny afternoon. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an older park with approximately 60 trailer sites. The sites aren't quite level, and are narrow - you can fit in a travel trailer with slide outs, but it's a squeeze. The park itself is beautiful, in the rolling Texas hill country. The Pedernales River cuts over uplifted limestone beds, creating 'falls'. I've yet to visit then the river was flowing fast enough to see it, though. There is an excellent bird blind near the falls, and a nice swimming section below them. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
What a wonderful St Park. Agree with previous raters that spaces are a bit short, narrow, need leveling (some VERY short, narrow and unlevel) and some tables and fire rings are in strange places (on opposite side from RV door), but the spaces are separated by trees and distance. The hiking is excellent, esp down to and along the river. The falls are spectacular. There are two bird watching blinds staffed by volunteers--do NOT miss this! There is a wonderful winery (Texas Hills) and in town the Silver K restaurant is wonderful. Since it's close to Austin and San Antonio, I suspect it gets crowed at times, but we can't wait to return all year round, but esp during the summer to use the river's picturesque swimming area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Quiet state park. Sites are short and not built for RVs. The table and fire ring are on the back side of RVs. 90% of the sites are very shady and private feeling. The park has nice trails and two bath facilities. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is nice. As far as big rig access, yes it can be accessed in a big rig but parking is a different situation. We supposedly had one of the larger sites and with our 38 ft MH I had to park the toad across the front. Most of the spaces would be limited to 28 ft. Good birding location and nice view of the Pedernales river. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice and primitive CG. Very well shaded and there are spaces that are spread out and some together if needed. The falls are very peaceful listening to and not for the weary to get down to. Lots of hiking and biking trails. We had a great time during spring break even with CG full. Its a very big park - 5000+ acres. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very old, very primitive campground. The site pads are short (we have a 27" travel trailer and a standard truck) and were just barely to fit. Picnic tables are at each site but are not conveniently situated - 25 or more feet away. The pads were set up where everything is off to the opposite side of where most people normally have their trailer doors. We couldn't open our awning. The park was not mowed but with all the recent flooding in Texas, maybe they were just behind. It was too primitive for us. We found that this campground was way too much in the boonies. Our vacation involved sight-seeing in the Hill Country and everything was a drive - just to get out of the park and on the road. If you want to spend time at the campground and nothing more, it is nice for that, but not to get in and out of regularly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good park for adults and teenagers, smaller children did not have a playground. Lots of hiking opportunities. Hikes are pleasant, but the trails are not well marked. Campsites seemed close, but could have just been our neighbors. Park host were helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great little park out in the boonies. If you have health problems, you can be in trouble. It is 13 miles by road to Johnson City and all they have are two band aids and an asprin. That was my only thought. Everyone was great, it is a nature area so you have to think roughing it (yeah, in an RV) The normal antenna TV was very good, had 7 channels. Only gave it an 8 because of a long walk to the showers and rest rooms. Also a long walk down to the river, but worth it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
12 miles sw of Johnson City. Park entrance is a ways from the actual camping area, winding
two lane road take you to the camping area and then down to the falls parking area, did not see any big rigs, however they do have extra vehicle parking. A short 1/4 mile hike is required to view the falls. A swimming and tubing beach along with fishing access are located withing a mile of the campground. RV sites are seperated from each other by oak and cedar, sites could be a little more level. Will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is right off hwy 281 and 290 in Johnson City, TX. We stayed here for a night so we could visit the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park in Johnson City. The park has 44 pull through sites with full hookups, 10 new spacious sites with 50 amps for big rigs, and 18 back in sites. The bathrooms were clean. The laundry only had one machine but it was new, fast, and only a $1.00. When we checked in the owner had baked some chocolate chip cookies and they were so good right out of the oven. There is no cable here but they do have free Wi-Fi, a market, restaurants, and ACE hardware all within walking distance. There is a winery within a mile. It was a good stop! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a surprise stop for us, and we did not have time to do this park justice. Beautiful, right on the river, and we woke up to them running the thoroughbred race horses the next morning. What a treat. The people we very nice. Wi-fi was good. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

There is easy access to this park right off the highway; some noise, but not too bothersome. Our site was an easy pull-through, long and level enough to not have to unhook, and some shade trees. Sites are very close, but we had no one on either side of us. Park is a little old, but kept up nice. Laundry room has one washer and one dryer, both worked good, and cost $1.00 each. Restroom and showers were clean. Wi-fi worked excellent. Office lady was very friendly and told us about lots to do in the area and escorted us to our site. Right next door is a Super S Grocery Store, Ace Hardware, Subway, and Dollar General. Across the street is a Mexican Restaurant. Rate is with a Good Sam discount. I would return if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate based on weekly stay. Been coming here for a couple of years and enjoy it. Some oak shaded sites for smaller rigs. Larger 50 amp sites are without trees. Walking distance to restaurants, grocer, bank, dollar store and hardware store. This is an older park that is well cared for and very clean. Bathrooms and showers were spotless no matter what time of the day we went in. Staff made us feel comfortable and special. No cable TV but a large clubhouse that has two TV's w/satellite. Good free internet. Good location in the hill country. Some road noise but all RV parks that I checked on within 30 miles, are on a busy street. This is the best. Will definitely go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was easy to access and the owner was very polite and helpful. Some of the sites are very close together including the one I had. The park is located in Johnson City and you can walk to the grocery store. I would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Older RV park with all FHU pull through sites: level, concrete runners and gravel in between. Easy access from Hwy 281/290. Owner very friendly and guides to site. Sites are close, but staggered so if you have a slide-out and the guy next to you has a slide out, they will both extend BUT you can hand each other coffee through your window in the morning. W/E/S connections at the rear. Over the air TV is good, cell and WTX excellent. Wi-Fi is free, tolerable to good speed and works most of the time. One washer and one dryer on site: inexpensive and they work! Two small, clean showers. Nice, clean clubroom and book exchange. Traffic noise can be loud but it does get quiet at night. There is a large grocery store (only one in Johnson City), Subway sandwich and gas station next to the park, other restaurants and shops close by. The park is well lit at night: not necessarily a good thing. I was forced to hang towels over the bedroom window so I could sleep. I recommend this park if you need a clean, safe place to stay while visiting the few local attractions; but be advised, this park is NOT a destination resort. I only give the park 5 stars because, although it is clean and safe, the park and local area have few amenities and attractions to offer. NOTE: Rate displayed is the daily cost based on a monthly rate of $325 (30 amp, electricity included, no cable TV). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Busy road on one side, busy shopping mall on another side. Very noisy. Owner like to "group" people all together, although there are many sites empty and the sites are very, very close together, maybe four or five feet. If you open a window you are practically in someone else's rig. Very claustrophobic! Not too friendly or too helpful in trying to satisfy customers. Would not reccommend unless desperate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The pull through sites are narrow. Can't have multi slides if neighbor has slides or awning out. Wi-Fi is no better than dial up: very low signal strength. Wi-Fi was one reason we chose this park. The long term residents do not pick up after their dogs, but other are expected to do so. Laundry room is a joke with one washer and one dryer. There is nothing for children to do. There are better parks in area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Long level gravel sites with concrete runners for the tires. Some sites have shade but not many. Easy access from Hwy 281. Some road noise. Restaurants and shops close by. While not a destination type park it is a convenient location for touring this part of Texas. The park and facilities were very clean and work is being done for expansion. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I would stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
