We stayed in the 30/50 amp full-hookup sites, which were very nice, with a screened patio and patio furniture. The dog playground was one of the largest I've seen at a KOA and very clean. The staff is very pleasant, they pick up your trash daily and provide the local newspaper at your site each morning. We stayed one night heading out and 2 nights returning. The only drawback to this park is the local airport is very close, but the noise was not too bad. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The office staff was great. We stayed in one of the newer pull through sites. The site was long enough for our 38ft 5ver and truck and the utilities functioned properly. We used the laundry which was clean and well cared for. The Wi-Fi worked well at the office but we couldn't use it from our site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It's a good KOA. The kids love the playground and the horseshoe pit. It's not completely quiet at night - you can hear road noise. And if you're lucky enough to stay there on trash days, you'll get a dark:thirty wake up call by the trash truck rumbling through the campground to pick up the dumpsters. The place is clean and well kept. They do have a pool but we never stayed there in the summer to find out if it was kept clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were in the newer part of the park in the long pull thrus which were real level. Also, no trees so roof mounted satellite dish worked great. Office staff was great and worked well with us on our uncertainty due to slide out problems. Gravel roads and gravel sites. Rates not as high as the usual KOA rates. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We requested a pull-thru and were given site #63. We attempted to 'level out', but to no avail. So they said we could move to #62-61 or 60. HA HA HA NONE of these pull-throughs were level. Even the person next to us had his front wheels completely up off the ground. So we were not satisfied with the pull-through sites. Also - the campground is in the airport flight area. You WILL hear airplanes (but not near a railroad track). :) We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice place. Nice clean pool. Gravel and paved roads. Very friendly. Nice store that stays open until 9. Bathrooms were new and clean and nice. The only downfall was that there were a lot of oil field workers living here. If they would put them in a separate area from the travelers, that would have made it perfect. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great campground! All sites are pull through with cute cabins and some tent sites. Has a dog area with some shade. Great laundry and showers. Very clean. A/C compressor froze and I was able to stay past check out while it was repaired. A staffer personally took us to our site and even offered to lend a hand. There are trees but not much shade. There is a pool, but we didn't use it. Camp stories open til 9 and has a decent selection of items. My kids loved the ice cream choices. Would be glad to stay again. Also, right next to a great walking trail! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I stayed one night at this campground. The staff was very friendly. I was given one of the long pull-through sites in the newer area of the park. The hook-ups seem to be positioned for trailers, as they were near the rear of the site. Because I had a motorhome and toad, I ended up disconnecting, so I could position the motorhome closer to the hook-ups. It was not a problem for me, as I needed to run an errand in the toad. But for those wanting to keep the toad attached, it might be an issue. Lack of tall trees allowed my satellite TV to work just fine. Only other issue was the Wi-Fi, which, at times, was so slow, it was unusable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped in the "older" section of the park and the sites are very close together. There are a large number of permanent campers in the park. The grounds need attention, cigarette butts all over the place, found some vehicle gaskets on my site. Can't walk your dog because of the "goats heads" all over the green area of the park. Noted that there was an excessive amount of dog droppings at edge of green areas, probably because dogs refused to walk on goats heads but the owners obviously were not picking up after the dogs and park management is not either. There is a new section that has wider sites and some privacy. We would recommend staying in the new area. The staff is friendly and helpful. The Wi-Fi is useless. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a basic KOA with some needed site improvements underway. We were just here overnight and it was good foe a short stay. As seems to be common in KOAs, the WiFi was poor at best with continual drop offs however we had a good AT&T signal. Good satellite reception as well. We would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The 50 amp pull through sites are a good size with dividers and plantings between sites. Plantings are young but a decent size. These sites are undergoing upgrades to the landscaping. They have a concrete patio and table and chairs also. If you like deer you will love these sites as a large herd of deer including at least one buck lives in the fields next door. The people here are very friendly and while there are several long term units they are kept up and no "stuff" piled around as so often happens. We will stay here if in the area again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We only stayed 1 night, but the staff was extremely friendly. The sites were very easy to get in and out, with out unhooking. All of the facilities seemed clean. The only down fall: anyplace off the roadways, was covered with thistles. Tough on a dog. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice and clean RV park close to Lake Nasworthy. The park was very quite and they had a nice pool area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The owner has been doing a lot work trying to improve the park and make it better. They do have new patio sites with picnic tables for big rigs. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice enough campground. The spaces are tight but I got an end spot so I didn't feel crowded. The whole thing is gravel. There are grass spots around the edges, but mostly it's just stones with hookups coming up out of the stones. I met the owner who told me he had a "dog yard" well, I wish I had seen it while he was there. It's not a yard, it's a pen no larger than a horse stall. Maybe a little Chihuahua would have fun in it, but that's it. It also had sand stickers so I wouldn't let any dog go inside it. The good news is, it was less than most KOAs and the wifi worked perfectly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A good place for a night or two stay. Noisy due to it being near a major street in San Angelo. Plus a lot of full timers rolling out to work early in the mornings. A great spot to run dogs is just across the street. The folks that manage/own the park are very nice. The pool is great on those scorching hot West Texas afternoons. Had it all to ourselves. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were shown to our site by a friendly and helpful man from the office, and were given a little welcome bag. The campground is clean. The staff is friendly. However, the spots are tiny. We could barely open our slide-out and once we did, we were literally inches from our neighbor's slide-out. The Wi-Fi worked for about 30 minutes and then never again for the whole time we were here. The pool was full to the gills and noisy so we avoided it. There is a clubhouse where pancakes are served in the morning, but we didn't partake of that either. Nice park across the street for dog walking. We would stay here again but only on our way to another destination. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed one night at this KOA. The managers were very friendly and led us to our site and helped with the hook ups. WiFi reception was excellent. We did not use the cable TV. The camp was clean and the swimming pool was refreshing for the hot weather. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love the San Angelo KOA! We live in a nearby town but my husband has on call time that requires him to be closer to work and we stay at the KOA. The staff is very friendly, you get a four-wheeler escort to your site! The sites are a little small,but it is the staff, pool, and playground that keeps us coming back. They even make pancakes for the campers! We have a 5 yr old and the KOA helps her enjoy her stay away from home. We will continue to return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is OK, if all you want to do is watch cable TV. There is a swimming pool but, it was closed for the winter. It looks like there used to be a hot-tub, but it's been removed. There is a small playground for young children, but nothing here to interest teenagers. The game room is a joke, doesn't even have jigsaw puzzles much less games of any kind. The dog walk is also a joke, not only is it small, it's full of sand spurs, like most of the grass, not that there is a lot of that Not much shade either, even if the few trees had leaves. The showers are clean because nobody would use them twice. The showers barely mist, takes forever to get truly wet. All the sites are gravel, the whole park is gravel, all have picnic tables and some have b-b-q grills but their used for campfires not cooking. Laundry prices are deceiving, $1.25 to wash $1 to dry except it takes 2 or 3 cycles to get the clothes dry. As for the park being QUIET, what a joke!!! Non stop airplanes from sun up to sun down. The air force has a practice strip not a mile away and they fly straight over the park at low altitudes. Will not stay here again, unless it's only for a stop over. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A pleasant surprise for a KOA, great price with no add-ons. Cable and WI-FI included and both were excellent. It is a mostly gravel RV park but has lots of grass around the edges and many trees surrounding much of the park. Level sites that are fairly close together but still comfortable. No noise of any kind as the park sits back from the main road about a block. I agree that the dog "walk" was pretty funny - about a 10X10' pen with provided disposal bin. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was a little worried about this park because the price was so reasonable for a KOA. There was nothing to worry about, this was a very nice park. Hosts were friendly, bathrooms, showers and laundry were all great. The fenced dog run was pretty funny unless you have a really tiny dog. Overall it is a nice place to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here- the Concho Valley KOA- Dec. 24-26. We found the staff helpful and friendly. Our gravel site was level- we didn't have to level our RV. The Wi-Fi was good as was the cable. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This KOA is a major disappointment! It is actually nothing more than a gravel parking lot with a few trees thrown in. The staff isn't the greatest. We decided since we were just passing thru, we would use their cable TV - but it was mostly fuzz. When we mentioned it to the host, he said, 'oh, others have complained about the low end channels'. We told him that all of the channels were fuzzy & not viewable so we ended up using our satellite. I was also extremely disappointed in the pool - if someone were to drown in it - it be hard to see them & it's a SHALLOW pool. The pool is nothing short of nasty. The floor of the pool looked blackish gray & moldy & the water was dark & foggy! Also, an airfield is somewhere in the area & we sometimes heard planes coming & going - but this is something the park naturally can not help; other then the planes, the campground is quiet. This park has the potential to be really nice but in it's current state it leaves a lot of be desired! TLC is definitely needed! We WON'T be back! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here 2 nights. The park was well maintained with large easily accessible sites. The hosts were friendly and helpful. The host, Tracee, was a true example of how a host should be. The location was just far out of town to be quiet and peaceful, yet close enough for seeing the sites of the city without much driving. We would definitely recommend this KOA Kampground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This KOA provided us with our worst experience ever with a KOA campground! It's also the only time that we called KOA's national office for assistance! We made reservations 6 weeks early to stay at this particular park & also put in a request that our friends (who also RV) would be parked next to us. We were assured that we would have no problems with this request. I gave my credit card number to hold our site, as did our friends. Upon arrival, we were met by a husband & wife team who were very RUDE desk clerks. They seemed uneducated & unclean. The woman became incensed & angry when I tried to pay for our site with my debit card. She began arguing with me about why I couldn't pay with the credit card that I had held our site with. I explained to her that that shouldn't matter. (KOA - home office agreed with me). Finally, she gave us our site after she verbally berated us & treated us very nasty. We remained nice to her, but to no avail. When our friends then tried to get their site, they were placed clear across the park. When they stated that we had 6 weeks earlier reserved a site next to us, the woman's husband, loudly told us to leave the park & to leave then. The park was only 1/3 full & we had empty spots all around us & next to us where our friends could have stayed. At that point, I called the home office of KOA & was talking to them about the situation when another park worker arrived. He apologized for the situation & told us that it was fine if we parked our rigs next to each other & that if we had any other problems to bring them to his attention. We went ahead & stayed for a couple of days but we were stayed away from the hateful couple. The only redeeming feature of this park was their pool - but beware . . . while I was swimming, I noticed a couple of male park workers intensely watching me & it made me uncomfortable. There are NO other amenities! The park actually looks like a parking lot with gravel, no trees. Would we stay here again? NEVER! There are many other nice RV parks around the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I agree that this park isn’t a resort destination, but it doesn’t pretend to be. At $22 (gold card discount, tax included) it’s a great deal for those just passing through. My site was a huge side-by-side with no neighbor. It was nicely leveled gravel and with great cable TV and pretty good WiFi. The only negative on the whole experience was the pay phone which didn’t work (we had no problems elsewhere in our three weeks in Texas, so it’s probably not us.) Staff was very friendly and helpful and the store was reasonably well-stocked. Bathhouse was spotless, but the ladies’ had very little hot water in any of the shower stalls. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Another KOA that has seen it's better days! Pretty much a gravel parking lot with small sites that are too close together. We could literally pass a supper plate out our slide window to the RV next to us! Side-by-side sites. Fortunately the neighbors were of good humor as well! Had to keep the shades down 24x7. Sites are not level, roads fairly well kept. No hint of landscaping. Far enough off the road that the traffic noise isn't that bad, and convenient to shopping. Staff was pretty indifferent and didn't seem intelligent. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If a 5 means average thats just what this place is. Not clean not dirty, not spacious not cramped. Good for an overnight. If I had to stay for a week I would look for somewhere else. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really enjoy San Angelo state park. We have been on both the north side and south side of the park. There are pull-through sites on the south side - lots of flat open space, there's always a breeze, and we enjoy watching the birds and the ground squirrels. We've also camped on the north side where there are large trees that provide shade. The park is quiet at night and the park rangers are always friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Was surprised to discover that the lake had been dry for sometime since my last visit to this park. The conditions are clearly budget cut related. The park is still clean, spacious, level, and home to the friendliest state park staff I've met in 40 plus years of camping. I was in good spot for WiFi service even though I was told not to expect it where I was to be located. The biggest disappointment is the company that used to do trail rides through the park no longer does them. You can still bring your own horses, but it was a feature I used to love about this park. San Angelo has grown up enough now that you are with 3 miles of major shopping and restaurants, but you'd never know it from inside the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There are 2 campgrounds - Northern (with shade), Southern (biggest) no shade. Both campgrounds are flat, paved, clean and spacious. Wi-Fi hotspots are present - just ask. The bathrooms were spotlessly clean and heated. Rate $20/night plus $4 per person per day park fee if you do not have a Texas State Park card. Staff very friendly. The advertised herd of bison was small, 5 calves and 4 females. We didn't see the longhorns (grazing far from view). The petroglyphs were not open for viewing unless you are in an organized tour (hugely disappointing) and we were told the dino tracks were also not available to view. We were lucky enough to have a very knowledgeable Ranger take us. They are Permian tracks (Dimetrodon) and predate dinosaurs. There are only a view places in the world these have been found and San Angelo has the largest area, a long dried riverbed. The tracks are plentiful and fabulous but totally covered in dirt with weeds sprouting from many. This is a world attraction and there is no funding to provide any sort of protection program - tragic. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you are camping here for the lake you should be aware that it is dry as of late Sept. 2013. There is a lot of info on the web and in the brochure about swimming, fishing etc. but there is no water in the lake. The boat ramp is overgrown with trees. Otherwise it's a quiet park with a number of hiking trails. Sites are very spacious and have covered shelters. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This made a great overnight stop for us, convenient to the freeway and supplies, yet still giving a feeling of being out in nature, although “nature” in this area is a bit on the desolate side. We had the campground practically to ourselves, possibly due to the low level of the lake. Our site was easy to get into. Staff was very friendly. Not one of the prettier Texas parks, but more than adequate for our needs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great place for an overnight. Very convenient to the highway but far enough away that you don't get traffic noise. Helpful host. Clean, well maintained sites. I camped in the South Area. If you have a big rig you might want to check out the North area. The sites in the South are widely spaced and private. I would camp here again if passing by. We camped here in a Tent.
We stayed here overnight and bought a Texas State Park pass in the morning which took care of the $4 a day entrance fee. We were serenaded the next morning by turkeys, about four Toms looking after a large flock of Hens. The place was clean and quite. It was a Thursday night and beside one other person in a trailer we were to only ones there. I would come here again, especially in the off season. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very well maintained State Park, electric, water but no sewer hook ups. Road and pad are paved. Wide, level, and long pull throughs, big rig access is excellent. Plenty of space and privacy around the RV, a few trees but not a lot of shade. Plenty of grass, covered picnic table, and wonderful views all around. Bathrooms are old but clean. WiFi and cell are good. HEB, Wal-Mart and Lowes are about 3 miles away, as are some wonderful restaurants, and plenty of sightseeing. This park has security gates, both night and day. Sadly there is little water in the lake, but we would stay here again, its very peaceful, quiet and relaxing. We were in the Red Arroyo camping area. Rate reflects Texas Parks Pass discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We could not believe the state of this park. We have stayed here many times and it seems like it is just going downhill. The personnel at the office are friendly and helpful. Our site was level. The restrooms I will give a 1, they looked like they had not been cleaned in months. The ladies room was terrible; the sink had trash in it and dirt was all over the sink area. The men's room was dirty with a chicken bone on the floor that the ants had stripped long ago. It appears that there are people actually living in the park. I know an oil boom has hit the area, but one can tell by the items laying around the sites that people are using the park as a living area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
As with most state parks, there's just water/electric hook-up. The folks that checked us in were friendly. Our site was in a nice location. It was very quiet. We will stay there again. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Very nice campground with large campsites, widely spaced, easy pull through sites. The "lake" in this park was nearly dried up. The grounds were also very dry. Friendly and helpful staff. There were very few campers this time of year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly staff. Asked if we wanted to be near other campers or away which was nice. Hunting was scheduled for that weekend which did not hinder us in any way. Nice overview of the reservoir which is almost empty. The boat launches are more than a quarter mile from the edge of the water. It was still nice now, will be nicer when the dought is over and the water returns. We planned on 2 nights, then extended our stay because we enjoyed it so much here. We bought the annual Texas Parks pass for $70. Otherwise it can be as much as $7 per person, per day, plus camping fees, depending on the Texas park you are in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one night and enjoyed it. The sites are very spacious and the roads leading into the sites are also very spacious. There is no shade only small trees -- so you can see for miles. The lake is dried up right now but we were told this when we called for a reservation. They tell you it is $18 for the night but don't always tell you there is a $3 per person park fee too. The ranger was very nice and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park. Unfortunately, the lake is no more. The drought and heat has really played havoc with the water this year but, unless you're a farmer or rancher, you don't notice it as much 'til you get to a campground where the lake has dried up. So sad. Texas charges $3 a day per person whether you're camping or not and that is reflected in the rate I posted. We had a nice long level pull-through which was easy in-easy out. Part of the Texas Longhorn herd is here and they also have a bison herd but we didn't see them. We did see some cute little ground squirrels at our site (or kitten was fascinated by them) and prairie dogs across from the cattle pasture. The park is close to town on good roads. San Angelo, the city, has a lot to offer in the line of shopping, restaurants, museums, parks, etc. but since we were there only 2 nights, didn't really get a chance to see any attractions. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others, if you don't need the lake. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for a week and enjoyed our stay. There is no water in the reservoir so there was hardly anyone at the campground. Very quiet yet close to town for visiting. The State of Texas charges a daily fee on top of the nightly fee so be aware when figuring nightly costs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large well kept park with spacious sites and great views. The lake is almost gone so fishing is not possible. The locals say this used to be quite a park with a large lake. Good for biking and hiking now. Quick to get into town. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The RV sites are very spacious and yield great views in every direction. Too bad the lake is almost gone! There are miles of great hiking, biking, and horse trails; but they have not been well marked. It seems that this park is past it's prime since the lake has been lowered. Too bad, it must have been great at one time. The park is about 5 minutes from town. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is a nice place to stop for a day or two. The employees are great and willing to help if there is a problem. There are no sewer hook ups at the sites but a dump station on the way out of the park. It was very quite and there were not many people at the park in October. It is on the edge of San Angelo so it's close to food and shopping. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here 4 nights. It is a West Texas natural environment, so semi-arid with few trees. The prickly pear cacti were in bloom and were colorfully spectacular. Great hiking trails. Rangers were very informative and friendly.We loved it and would return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice, safe, quiet place for our one night stay. Sites were dirt, but level; nice picnic tables with roofs. Pleasant surroundings. We stayed in site #1 for a longer RV and a tow. Staff were great, too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Update on my review written in July 2008 and deals strictly with the South Shore park - North Shore park is approx 8 miles north on FM2288 near US-87 and rates a separate review (IMO). Nightly rate does not include $3 per person, per day, day use fee (Buy a TX Parks Pass!). Friendly staff, asphalt roads, level back-ins and pull thrus; water and electric on the side or near the rear depending on your site. Over the air HDTV reception gives three local channels and two channels from Abilene. Weather radio and cell reception are excellent. Free wi-fi hotspots are available in town at the library, coffee shops, restaurants, etc. Numerous trails in the park for hiking or biking, lots of birds and wildlife. Not many trees are in the camping areas; i.e, not much shade is available, and it gets HOT during the Spring and Summer. Lake level continues to fall and as of this writing, the lake is at 5% capacity. You can fish and kayak but the lake is not as large as it looks on a map. If you plan any water activities, I strongly suggest you call the park beforehand. Nights are fairly quiet. The park is very convenient to shopping, restaurants, fuel, propane, etc. I suggest you read the reviews of the other camping options in San Angelo and you will see why this park is the best of the bunch. Definitely recommend as a place to stay for a night, week or longer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate includes $18 for the campsite plus $6 day-use fee for 2 people. We do not have an annual park pass. With a park pass, the day-use fee is waived. The staff recommended the south section for long, spacious, pull-through sites. A reservation was not necessary during this time of the year; there were many sites to choose from. Verizon extended service was okay for cell and fair for the air card. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a former Corp park. It’s spread out over 15 miles with multiple sections with a total of about 125 sites, tents included. I am only reviewing about 40 sites near the south entrance. Those sites are long, level, and wide with picnic shelters and grills. Water and electric was good. Bath houses have some age but are clean and well maintained. No laundry. As previously mentioned in other reviews, the bath houses, playground, and dumpsters are not in close proximity to most sites. The lake level is still low. Boat ramps are unusable, but Texas State Parks allow free fishing if you are camping in them. Access roads are easy in and out. Park is about 3 miles from shopping and major highways which makes for good RON or extended stay. Posted rate does not include a $3/person/day extra charge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Update on a prior review made earlier this year. Nightly rate based on extended stay (normal nightly rate is $18 plus day use fee). We stayed from 10 July through the end of Sept. Park offers lots of birding opportunities as well as hiking and biking. Not much shade which is a factor in the summer heat! Not very crowded so if you want peace and quiet, this is the place. Be warned - lake is at 6% capacity so if you plan to come here for water activities, I suggest you look elsewhere or call the office first to get the current lake level. The lake is very small compared to what it looks like on a map. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As with much of West Texas, this park has little shade. However, the sites are still nice. We stayed in the South Campground, and it is the more developed one of the two. We tried to find a site in the North Campground first, but none of them had fire rings (as far as we could see), only charcoal grills. We wanted to have a ground fire so we headed to the South Campground. There are only a few sites there that provide nice shade (to sit under, the camper is still in the sun). Sites 33, 37, 38, and 40 were the best mostly due to shade and seclusion. The lake is almost always low, which makes the boat ramps unusuable. However, there is good shore access for fishing. I suppose you could swim, but there really are no good swimming areas. The hiking trail is nice and a tad rugged. Horses frequent it. The cabins looked small and overpriced, but we didn't stay in them. I've seen nicer restrooms and showers, but they were generally clean and well maintained. There is a nice little gopher park where you can see a city of gophers running from hole to hole. The kids liked that. Overall this is a nice park, but apart from some hiking, there's not much to do. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We stayed on the south shore, there was lots of space between sites. The bath house is also far away, so we didn't use it. Some shade trees, but in early March, no leaves! There are some good hikes and trails for mountain biking. New Wal-Mart nearby, also shopping and restaurants. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Suggest purchase of annual parks pass if you plan on spending any amount of time at a Texas state park. Otherwise you will pay $3 per person per night (at this park, others charge different)- annual pass is $60 and you get some camping discount coupons. Lake is at 9% capacity at South Park; North Park has no lake level. LOTS of trails to explore/bike/horseback ride. Staff very friendly and helpful. Recommend you check with park before arrival as park closes for hunting during certain times of the year. Have always had plenty of choices for sites though! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean park with large sites and lots of space between each campsite. Campsites are somewhat level, and most didn't find it two hard to level out. People are friendly at the park, and it is close to the city for those who wish to venture in. The city is about 5 minutes away, and it has the amenities of a large city. The lake is generally only 7-11% of capacity (5200 acres is designated for the reservoir). There are not many shaded sites at the south shore entrance. Most of the shaded sites are at the north shore entrance, so if you go during the summer look at the north shore area. These two entrances are about 10 miles apart, and the drawback to north shore is no lake view, but then again; there isn't much of a lake to view. Overall, it is a nice country setting to relax in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped in the northern campgrounds (Eagle's Pass) because the Trailer Life directory said it was cheaper than the southern campground (they lied). The rate I quoted (approximate, from memory) includes their "per-person park entry fee." I was pleasantly surprised to find 50A service at a state park. The gate attendant was very helpful in steering us to the perfect spot (and later, told us some fine stories, plus where to get the best BBQ in town). The imported prairie dog town was a nice touch (my dog sure appreciated it). Long walk to the toilet/showers but pleasant with a full moon. Nice quiet campground, too. I will definitely stay there again if I am in San Angelo. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
South Shore entrance to park yields wide open spaces between campsites. There is also a resident herd of bison inside a fenced area. The North Shore entrance is in a river bottom with huge pecan trees providing many shady sites. 50 amp service is available. There is one section for equestrian users with corrals and many trails available for riders. The trails are avaiable for hikers and bicycles as well. As with other state parks in Texas, dump stations are available in the different campgrounds, and no firewood can be picked up inside the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 7 / 10 ]
A typically state park run campsite. If you are looking for isolation with camp spaces really spread out, this is it. You will like having a lot of real estate between sites. No or little shade but great vistas of rolling prarie hills and an almost empty lake bed. Very close to city with amenities. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very pretty Rv park right on the lake. There are piers for boats and benches along the lake. Sites are dirt but spacious. Staff were friendly allowed for late check-in. Only stayed overnight but will try to come back for a longer stay in the future. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A great place, but a little expensive for what they offer. The Wi-Fi is free and very bad, only good at the office. Cable is free and good. Some sites are very narrow and it will take some time to put your rig in so you can open your slides, some are big and with nice well kept grass in between, but they have to do something to make the facilities better up for the rates they ask. The people working here are very nice and helpful. And the location is of course great, good biking in the city park and if you like fishing this is the place. We will come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great RV park. Living in Texas we are always looking for places to go that are within a day's drive and have a lake. This one ranks high on our list. The grounds are well maintained, the lots are a good size for a big rig, and there are plenty of trees. There are two sides to the park: One for residents and another that is largely for transients with a nice view of Lake Nanworthy. At sunset we had a herd of deer walk through the camp to get corn that a resident sets out for them. Several large bucks in the herd. Wild turkeys come walking on by. The whole place is surrounded by a state park. Fishing was fair to good. The only thing was the roads were dirt and it was dusty or we would have rated it a 10. Definitely come back here in the fall. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really enjoy coming to this park. Our daughter is a student at San Angelo State University and this is by far the best place to stay in San Angelo. Reservations are highly recommended in the summer since the park will be full every weekend. We stayed in site 78, it was very long and wide, nice grass for the doggies and fairly level. Our view looked out over the lake, very nice. The Wi-Fi did not work for me but the AT&T signal was strong so we used our hot spot. Did not use the restrooms or showers so couldn't say about them. There were also a lot of long term campers this time, more than I remember but due to the oil field boom in the area it's to be expected. Staff was friendly and courteous. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stay here in the fall and winter months and it's nice and quiet. If you have dogs there is a lot of space to take them for a walk or run. Always enjoy the RV park and come back every chance we get. Take the extra time it takes to get here, you won't be disappointed. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park outside of town on a lake. Park is surrounded by city park. Quiet during week, very busy on weekend. Shade trees and grass between sites. Park is on the lake. Power, water, and cell (AT&T) were good. We would stay her again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wi-Fi was horrible, worked for approximately 10 hours in 8 days. Upside are the sites: nice and level, long and wide all with picnic tables. Laundry room was filthy: cobwebs hanging from the ceiling, outside covered in grime. This is a large park with many tent sites and only a couple of washrooms. One room w/shower, toilet and sink all in one, long lineups every morning. Ran out of toilet paper Sunday morning and I'm sure they were not cleaned all week. It was a "beautiful" park but the above negatives far outweighed the surroundings. We would never stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice and quiet this time of year. Much better than being at the other place on Knickerbocker. If you stay in Angelo much you know where I'm talking about. Watch the tree branches some are hanging low, but nice to have trees for a bit of shade. Lots of room in the park for pets. Deer all around and good places to do some shoreline fishing. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Clean and neat park on the river. It is a city park run by a private company. On way to site we had a power line crossing the road drag on our roof. We are 13 feet tall. They know it is low but power company or city has yet to fix it. Trees have been trimmed back, but be careful as some major limbs still hang out. Very quiet mid week but probably gets louder on week ends. Looks like fair number of seasonals but all were in good shape. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our 4th time to stay at Spring Creek. Most of the sites are level gravel pull throughs and are arranged well with grassy areas between sites. Large mesquite trees provide some shade. The owners are very helpful. It is a great park for fishermen and water sports. We camp here while we visit relatives in the area and like the lake front views. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is a real find. It is a "city" park atmosphere with lots of grass and great views of the lake. Ideal for fishing or boating. We had the park nearly to ourselves until Friday night when it filled to capacity. We would definitely return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pretty spot overlooking Lake Nasworthy, plenty of shade trees so watch for low level limbs. Level parking, not a lot of space between sites, picnic table, BBQ, and deer wandering through. Its quiet at night, but plane and boat noise during the day. Probably more busy and noisy at weekends. The RV park cafe does breakfast, burgers and snacks. There is a garbage pick up from your site. Lots of good restaurants and major food stores close by, we would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park! Lake view and each site is large enough for privacy. Family orientated, friendly staff. Garage bags and pick-up each morning provided. Lots of wild life even had a woodpecker at our site. We will definitely plan another trip here! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the second time we have stayed at this park and will continue to use this park as a stopping place on our way out of Texas or coming home. The park is clean and quiet with a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. A great place to ride bikes as there is a park next door. View of lake is nice. Some of the sites are close together, but I think you find that at most campgrounds. The restrooms are lacking, but we use the one in our camper. The staff is always friendly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the very first place that I have taken my new (to me) 5th wheel. This has always been the marina that I use when launching my boat and they have always been super friendly. I would suggest this RV park to any one. There are no actual "lake front" spots but from mine, I could sure hit it with a rock. This is a very clean and secure place as I would leave my boat in the water every night tied to one of there several "first come first serve" docks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park has dirt roads and pads. It has lots of trees, so satellite reception can be challenging, as well as the "free wi-fi" they advertise. There is a public road between the park and the lake, and there is a city park and dirt dumping area on the other side that requires large city trucks and equipment to be driving by a lot as well as cars. There is also an airport nearby that has loud jets doing constant "touch & go" training. The staff enforces the rules; you get a printout of the rules with your receipt - but those are not all the rules. There are more rules listed on other paperwork which we did not discover until we were reprimanded for breaking the additional rules - so read it all or you will get in trouble from the park employee who inspects your site several times a day. Other campers seem to be able to do things without getting reprimanded. Don't let it lead you to believe you can do the same; the others must have special privileges. We did not feel comfortable under such scrutiny and wanted to leave early. We discovered that they will not refund any prepaid monies if you leave early for any reason. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Let me start by saying that the lady at the office was extremely friendly. We found this out because we were in the office changing sites 2 times before we finally found one that would accommodate our toy hauler. The tree limbs are extremely low hanging, and the park has trees in places that make navigation difficult at best. There were a couple of rain showers during our 2 night stay, and the park roads and sites became a caliche and muddy mess. Location on the lake was nice, and the park-like setting was beautiful. We saw deer and turkeys in the park at dusk. Park offers a Good Sam discount, but only if you call for reservations. They would let us take the discount because we made our reservations online through their own website. Because of the difficulty navigating the park, I doubt we will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here at least twice a year for the past 7 years. We have always enjoyed our stay, and would always recommend it until now. I arrived at the park at 1:00 PM and went to check in. An employee told me that check in was 2:00 and I would be charged a $2 early arrival fee. I told her I'd wait and check in at 2, and went back outside. This was the first time this had ever happened. I walked down to look at the sites, and they were less than 1/2 full. I went back in at 2:00 to check in, and asked why she had wanted to charge me an early fee when the park was so empty, including the space she was sending me to. All she said was that those were the rules. She then proceeded to give me a coupon for 20% off of my next stay. It's a nice park, but I won't stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were here for 2 nights; office staff was friendly and penciled us in for a 3rd night if we decided to stay. We left after 2 with no penalty. Nice place on a lake. You drive through what seems to be a city park to get to the RV park. There were people camping in it outside the campground. The RV Park had good gravel interior roads and sites and nice large trees. It was quiet when we were there. We saw wild turkey and deer as we drove in each night of our stay. The place completely filled up for the weekend. The one restroom available for us required a key to enter with, which we liked. The restroom seemed to be a city park restroom converted for all purpose. A single room had one toilet, sink and shower all. The room had cobwebs and some bugs both alive and dead as well as a few leaves and dirt around the bench. Just didn't get cleaned thoroughly. It also didn't have soap although there was toilet paper and cloth hand towels on an old fashioned roll. The shower itself was pretty clean though. There were windows propped open with coke cans so at night you would worry about privacy even though they were high windows. Everything else worked properly. They have a fairly well stocked store up at the office. We would return here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice park but the rate was higher than we are accustomed to paying. The section we were in has good separation between spaces with good grass. The one disappointment (beside the price) is that the Wi-Fi is new and not at all reliable. Out of four days here, I probably had internet connection only about two hours total. Fortunately, there is a Hastings Book Store close that had excellent Wi-Fi. The management was friendly and helpful. I would probably rate the park a nine had the Wi-Fi been better. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The owners were helpful and nice. A nice place to stay if you like fishing or water sports. The park was clean, and the Wi-Fi worked great (it is free). We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent 4 nights. Park is clean - sites were adequately spaced - and except for the weather, we enjoyed ourselves. It is a private park and located within a city/state park. WIFI was limited, but the owners were very helpful. The towers are not located in areas that they are over the RVs but on the same level. The laundry room needs improvement. While they have some new equipment, some of the other pieces were rusty or not in working order. We would return to this park and find another location to do our laundry. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed in this park numerous times all during the year and have always had a very positive experience. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful with everything but are not afraid to keep unruly campers or children under control. The boat traffic is more in the summer but not unbearable at all. Wonderful roads to take walks on and see deer, turkey etc. Really nice park. Highly recommend,. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park located right on the water. It has beautiful views of the surrounding "buttes" and Lake Nasworthy. We have camped there in the summer and winter and have found the park always clean and the staff very helpful. We will always try to get reservations whenever our travels take us that way. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a "Good Sam" park: but I don't support that rating by any means? It is, however, a lovely place, right on the lake with huge shade trees. Roads are in poor shape and have a lot of pot holes full of water and mud. In the winter time when it's too cold for water sports, it's a super place to stay! In the summer when water sports are going on, it's a nightmare! Wild, unsavory folks. I observed theft from an RV and boat: reported it and no one cared! Lots of noise all through the night. Tent camping right next to RV camping. If you enjoy the crowds, loud noise and activities: stay here. If you want a quiet get away: stay away in the summer! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice level, very wide, pull thru sites. Had a site directly across the park road from the lake. Spent 4 days there. It was very quiet during the week and even the weekend was fairly quiet because, although it is located in a public park, only campers are allowed in the camping area (although I saw several fishermen who weren't campers). The office has a small store with essentials and bait. Management was very friendly. There is a small boat dock nearby and canoe rentals. The park is located on a Lake Nasworthy so there is boat traffic, but the no-wake zone starts right at the park. Shopping is about 10 minutes away. This is a good place from which to see San Angelo.
