This is a good base camp for exploring the Hill Country. Sites are good-sized and mostly level. You can have shade or sun. The manager was very nice and accommodating. It was very quiet at night. Some highway noise during the day, but you will have that anywhere in Hill Country. They are motorcycle-friendly, even let me park under cover when hail was forecast. There is a large rec hall with a nice lounge and small but functional laundry on one end, also a large covered open-air area for group events or meals. Looks like they have a nice setup for horse events, too. Along the river there are horse pens with water available and lots of space for parking trailers. No hookups in that area, though. We had no Verizon voice or data service here. Campground Wifi worked OK most of the time, but was not always there. A real bargain at the monthly rate, which starts to be the best deal at about 2 weeks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a gem in the hill country. Quiet, friendly, and managed by wonderful people. They added a fenced area for dogs and lots of area to walk in. Rate reflects monthly rate. Phone service AT&T was usable from our site and also our Wi-Fi. The park just improved their Wi-Fi and it worked fine. Monthly price included electricity, Wi-Fi,and cable. We will be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate reflected is the monthly rate. My wife works as the pottery instructor at a children's summer camp in Medina, Texas. The camp management made arrangements for her to live in our 5th wheel at HC RV Resort during the duration of the camp. She and I were both impressed with the friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness of the facilities, and the fact that it was more like a state park than a commercial campground. Most commercial parks are asphalt and hook-ups. Here were trees, birds, deer, and large shaded sites. They have a huge kitchen area and dance hall/meeting area for family reunions. If the opportunity presents itself next summer, we will be back at HC RV Resort. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is based on a monthly rate. I really like this park. It was exactly what I was looking for. The spaces are large with lots of country setting and large live oak trees. The roads are not paved but have a good base material. The sites are pretty level and covered with small gravel so they won't be muddy when it rains. The camp hosts are super nice and so was everyone I met. Most of the people we met were staying for a few weeks/months. We took motorcycles to ride the great roads in the area, left everything out while we were gone and nothing was ever missing or "messed" with. The park has a large and nice community center, washers and dryers, and private restrooms/showers for those tent camping. Highly recommended. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here with Passport America, so our rate was half of that posted. It is a fairly good-sized park and typical of Hill Country, with .white rock and live oak trees. It is a very nice place with a good host. He even pointed out some good fly fishing spots for me. We camped here in a cold rain so didn't get to explore a lot, but this is probably very beautiful during the summer and fall There is access to the Medina River on the property and if you need to shop or eat out in a larger area Bandera is 14 miles and Kerrville is about 20 miles over the mountain. We would recommend the park and will come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pros: Clean showers; cable works. Cons: Internet service doesn't work. Highway curves around campground, so it is noisy at night. Swimming pool is small and unheated. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park was a pleasure to visit. The new owners were really nice and I think they will do great here. We stayed on a Sunday night but the place was clean, quiet and just a nice place! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. They even helped repair my awning. All facilities were clean and in good working order. This is my favorite campground. We camped here as part of the Fiesta Campers Rally. Every Fiesta camper was pleased with the campground and we plan to return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have not camped here yet, but wanted to let you know that this park has reopened as Hill Country RV Resort and Event Center. Web site "hillcountryresortandeventcenter" I hope to stay here soon and I’ll write a review then. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great RV Park, with spacious Sites, plenty of trees. Facilities include a recreation hall, wonderful pool (shaped like Texas, with the pan handle being a hot tub, with a waterfall to the lower part of Texas, making it a heated pool), hiking trail (a little over grown), clean showers and restrooms, and cabins, pool table (no extra charge), laundry, and horse shoes. The Median River is just a short (300 yards) walk; water levels vary greatly depending on rainfall. Children and pets are welcomed at no extra charge! When arrived on the 4 of July our air condition would not come on, the staff spent over an hour trying to repair our AC and called the local RV repair man, but he was not available until the following morning, so they loaned us a fan and phone (so we could call the repair man) all at no extra charge. The Staff bent over backwards to ensure our stay was enjoyable.

Our favorite getaway from San Antonio, very nice facilities, with good sized RV lots.
Usually not crowded. The pool is shaped like Texas, with the pan handle being a hot tub, with a waterfall into the pan. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This rate reflects the monthly rate ($300) plus electricity at .12 per KWH. However, we paid for a month but left 8 days early, so electricity was not a full month. There is very little in communication here. You’ll need to drive to Kerrville (20 miles) or Bandera (20 miles) to get a Verizon or AT&T signal for phone or data. There is a pay phone outside the office at the park. Though they advertise hi-speed Internet, it does not work at the campsites here, If you drive from the campground to the office, you might be able to get a signal on their wifi, but its very weak. The area is very isolated. Actually comes closer to qualifying as a resort than most. They have a restaurant, open Wed-Sun, with great breakfasts and really good pizza. Nice little store with beer, wine, etc…but no staples such as milk, bread, etc. Staff is polite and friendly. Nice pool, with river running along side. Very quiet park, amazing amount of birds here. Little “happy hours’ spring up around the park occasionally where everyone is welcome. There is no road noise, but they are very popular with motorcycles, so there is noise from those groups occasionally. There is a rugged trail to walk and some beautiful views of the Three Sisters hill area. Sites are level and wide. Electricity stays on, water pressure is ok, could be better. If you’re a motorhome, try to get one of the ‘pull in’ sites. The views out your windshield are very nice and its worth the "back up" when leaving. These sites have “car park” areas beside them. Firepits and tables are provided at each site. Again, nice enough resort….just be aware that there is very poor (if any) communication with phone and wi-fi. We probably would not stay here again for that reason. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I did not camp here but toured the facility to see what amenities it had and how the sites were laid-out. The park is right on Highway 16 so access is very good; however, Highway 16 is not a recommended route here from Kerrville south for RV's due to the steep grades and sharp curves. There is another route out of Kerrville that you should take. The view of surrounding hills is quite nice, and the setting is very tranquil with the river running through the property. The nicest sites are the cabins, and the RV sites are somewhat close together without any shade trees. Interior roads are paved, while the RV pads are gravel. Each RV site had full hookups and many were pull through. accommodating long rigs. Each site had a concrete patio where the picnic tables are placed, and each has a fire pit for camp fires. The park has a well stocked general store and has gas and diesel. Overall very nice, bit for long stays I prefer sites that are further spaced and nestled in the trees as opposed to the more open sites here. But if I had a bigger travel travel, I would definitely consider this because of the ease of access and large pads. The nightly rate is the latest advertised. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is set in the most picturesque area of the Texas Hill Country. Very clean, limited shaded sites however. Beautiful pool. Motorcycle friendly. Friendly staff. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
