10 Parks near Bend, Texas
Mar 2009 - $20.00
This is a nice quiet campground. The sites are on grass and are backed up to the Colorado River. Every site has water and a household 20 amp outlet for power. It was enough to power our AC and fridge. There is a dump station on the way out. The owners are nice and you can take whichever site you want. The campground is adjacent to Colorado Bend State Park (AKA Lemon's Fishing Camp) which has no hookups which is why we stayed here. The owner said the campground property is 1600 acres so the state park is not within walking distance. Fishing is popular so weekends you have a lot of visitors coming and going. You have access to at least a mile of river frontage for fishing. The office also has a small store with some food and fishing supplies. There are hot showers and the facilities are kept clean but they are older and run down. The sulfur spring is a neat feature to see and smell. I did not smell the sulfur smell in the campground area. The reason for a lower score is the 6 mile drive down a cliche gravel road. Everything will be covered in white dust when you arrive. There are a couple of steep grades but I was able to make it in a 38' fifth wheel without a problem. It's very scenic and peaceful once you get there. - RFamilyCamping

This is a very small campground located about a mile east of downtown Lometa on Hwy 183. Built and dedicated in 2002 this park has a nice playground and pavilion for family picnics. There are about 15 sites. They are relatively level with water and electric and 30/50 service. No full hookups though. The road in the park is asphalt. Some sites are back-in while others are pull through. There are Live Oak trees on most sites. We stayed here in a 32 foot with two slides and had plenty of room even with the awning out. There is a bath house that was clean but no place in the shower to hang a towel, clothes or even a soap holder. That was my only issue. We stayed here two nights and will definitely stay again if passing through. - Bill from Texas

Recently stayed in this park for two nights. We were able to get a reservation, but not able to choose a specific site. It was first come - first serve. All of the back-in river sites were taken by 5 pm (looks like most of the river sites and/or shady spots were taken by full time local workers). The RV park is handy if you are playing golf; otherwise, not much else to do. The building where the bathroom is located has a large meeting area with a satellite TV that did not work. Also, the bathroom is (1) shower & (1 toilet) for each gender. Free WiFi, but is pretty much nonexistent since the park was full of campers - internet kept going off and on. No over the air TV channels available in the San Saba area.
The RV park was very quiet in the evening (no road noise from the highway). I think it is a fine place for a one night stay, but I would not choose this park again for a weekend stay. - Gtown

San Saba River RV park is operated by the city of San Saba. They have a nice 18 hole golf course adjacent to the park. The park has 30 full hookup RV sites for $30/night on weekends and $25/night weekdays. Reservations accepted but not required. Just pick an unoccupied site, set up, then drive to golf pro shop to pay. The back-in sites are shaded by large pecans trees. The pull thrus are in full sun. Good free wifi. Free laundry (2 washers, 2 dryers). Nice clubhouse. We were in back-in site #9. Will return. - drfife

This is a nice park with gravel sites and plenty of shade. There is a breakfast bar available on site and dinner dining is also available. We stayed on the weekend and there were activities for kids and evening entertainment for adults. The only complaint we had was the excessive sticky grass burrs. They were everywhere, even on the gravel sites. We had a hard time keeping them off shoes and out of the trailer. Bring hard soled shoes. They are difficult to remove from tennis shoes and/or flip flops. - Rv4funinTx

Stayed here after the rains have flooded most other parks out. The biggest downside was the price--$52 total after the myriad of additional fees they add on. For what they offered here (not much besides very plentiful hiking and a failed "observatory" visit due to cloud cover) the price was way too high.
Our spot was nowhere near level and I had to chock the trailer to keep it from rolling backward after taking it off the TV. Trees are everywhere and beautiful--except the one at the RV area exit that is overhanging enough to catch the top of our rig and rip it. We made a wide turn--so be very careful driving around the park.
The biggest complaint I had was that we just got a weird "vibe" from the place, like families were not welcome and that RV's were a distant afterthought. They made it very clear that they loved dogs but it was obvious that kids were not very high on their list of favorite people.
The park is very far from civilization--we usually buy food when we arrive so we were hurting for food by the time we left. The "grocery store" there does not sell anything if consequence (like milk).
Pool is small and when we were there it was pretty gross--you could smell the chlorine but it was a pea-soup green color.
All in all, a very beautiful park with very little to do (besides hiking--tons of hiking). Go here if you want an isolated and quiet experience but not if you want a family weekend. - chrislachance

My family and I enjoyed this campground. We used it as an alternate to Inks Lake SP, and we are glad we did. We played at Inks during the day and came back to the quiet at Canyon of the Eagles. Staff were all helpful and nice. The reserve is nice and quite large. Enjoyed biking through the reserve. Pool is very small (residential sized). Movie shown for the kids each night which is a nice touch. RV spots were shaded and good spacing. Our spot was level. Park is at the end of the road and about 20 min drive from Burnet. The downfall of the park is the cost. It was $39/ night plus $4 per person, plus a nightly resort fee. It ended up being more like $60 each night. We would still return. - HJH

Sites are small and crowded. Lots of road noise from the highway. Park is clean. Short walk to Harts Firehouse BBQ. Good smoked brisket.
The WiFI is basic free TenGo and it is pretty poor. You can pay to get upgraded speeds. We wound up using our cell phone MiFi. - TXiceman1

The spaces are built around the shade trees so the sites are all different sizes and shapes. Most are very close together and some sites are very short and some are very long. Sites are gravel and all are not real level. Pastures border the east side and noisey HWY 281 borders the west side. Burrs are abundant. Short dog walk will result in 20-30 burrs per dog. There are few daily sites. The park is about to expand again by at least 2 acres. - Mrmac8

We checked in on Sunday when the office is closed, without reservations. The process went very well and we were quickly at a site. This is a somewhat small park and the space we were in was very tight side to side. The utilities were OK. Since were were under a tree we used the cable which had a good number of channels but the quality was OK at best. The biggest issue we had was the road noise. Our site was 50 or 60 feet off the highway and at times the road noise distracted from our stay. The campground is on the edge of town and you hear traffic accelerating while going out and decelerating when going in. The noise is intermittent which was for us more noticeable than being on an interstate. Some sites had picnic tables, but ours did not. We would stay here again if the need arises. - barthur

We stayed here for one night on our way south. With the PA discount it was a good deal. The park is in a rural area. The path to the CG from the main road is gravel and dirt. It was dusty but easy to drive. I did wonder, however, what it would be like if there had been a lot of rain. The sites are a thin layer of gravel and grass. Our site was a fairly long pull through and it accommodated our 40' MH and our toad without disconnecting. It was reasonably level. Utility connections were properly placed. There isn't an office; a park host lives in the first RV you encounter. Her phone number is posted to call if she isn't around. It was easy to get a satellite lock since there were only a few small trees. Verizon 4G/LTE worked well. - docj

This is an RV park under new management. Park was clean and on-site manager was very helpful. Passport America rate was cash or check. We only stayed one night on our trip to Killeen. Used the laundry which was right next to our RV. Just one washer and dryer, but they worked well. Price was reasonable. Our Verizon worked well, so we didn't miss the WiFi. Only negatives - watch out for tack thorns and some sites were not very level. - TravelingAdams

Not far off of us 281. There is some road noise. Very freindly host. No problem leveling 5th wheel. Not bad for overnight. - realshorttime

For those of you who want the park to offer cocktails at 5 o'clock every night, this is not the park for you. But for the other 99% of us, this is a good park! The staff is very helpful. They are willing to bend over backwards to make your stay with them very comfortable. This is a family owned park and the family is at the park daily attending to your needs as a camper. The park has many permanent residents and many of the trailers of these residents are older models, belonging to retirees who live there.
The park staff were helpful in directing us to all of the local spots to visit. They were forthcoming with any with answers to all questions which we ask of them. The staff guided every client into their spot, which was a great convenience to us. Since the water level of Lake Buchanan has been down, the water is not as close as it once was. However, it was only 100 yards from the campsites. The staff at Poppy's Point have created several "roads" which gave us access to a plethora of fishing and swimming opportunities. Additionally there were numerous wildlife sightings such as Canadian geese and herons. Bring your binoculars. The sunsets and star gazing are good for the soul. - t0rtuga44

If you want a nice, leisure stay at a nice RV park, DON'T stay here. Even though we had paid for several days, we quietly disconnected and left very early the morning after our arrival. Slots are SMALL, there's no shade, it's not anywhere near what was advertised, NOISY till late night, kids on four wheelers and ATV's till late at night. I would not recommend this park at any $$ rate. The best thing about this park: we found Big Chief Park, it's very nice! - HHg

This was a very well maintained campground. The owner was out every day, working around the grounds, and was very helpful and polite. It appears that some people choose to rent spaces by the month, for there were quite a few trailers but not a lot of people. The camp is very quite, the pool was clean and very enjoyable. The kids were able to ride bikes, fish and swim and had a good time. This campground had a peaceful, family type environment - Bahama

Nice place, friendly host. Shaded sites. The park is listed as pull trough but only Site #9 is a pull through, all others are back in. Asphalt drive fairly level, various lengths.
If you have dogs they will pick up stickers, they seems to be everywhere, is just the type of vegetation/grass. An abundance of low flying insects and tiny spiders. Did not bother us but somebody may not care for. Probably seasonal. All sites have 2 sewer hook up on raised concrete plates. 20-30 & 50 A seem to be standard at all sites. - Geppetto

Very nice small rv park. It's a wide open park - the spaces have lots of area between them but no privacy. Would be great for groups with multiple families to camp together. Specific sites can be reserved. Really pretty views of the lake. Full hookups, long paved pads, nice picnic area at each site with a grill and fire pit. Only negative was tv reception - few stations would come in and none of the major stations for news, etc. really impressed with this park! - CIndy Davis

This is a Lower Colorado River Authority park that is well maintained. The hookups are in great condition and each site appears to have to sewer hook ups. They have 13 RV sites that are in the upper loop, two other sites are an office and host. The restrooms and showers for the RV loop were clean even though the park was exceptionally busy. Wifi is available and fast but you have to request the username and password from the hosts. Huge park with a swimming beach, shore fishing, playground and a volleyball court. Plenty of room to get out and play. Each RV site appears to have plenty of shade trees, a bbq grill, fire pit and picnic table. You also have to pay an entrance fee on top of the camping fee which is why the cost is $28 instead of $20 as listed on the LCRA website. Will come back to this park if visiting the area, just try to avoid it on long weekends if you like a quiet spot. - jangle

This park is a fantastic deal using Passport America. There are only a few sites on the water so we ended up staying close to the buildings. The sites are pull through and easy to get into. We chose our own as no one was in the office when we checked in. This seems to be an older campground with dirt/gravel roads. It rained the night we stayed which of course is no fault of the park but it made a huge mess of our site and rv. The pool was closed as expected this time of year. This is probably a very good park for summer fun and families. We were just passing through and it was kind of far off the highway for just that. There is a small recreation room with a sitting area, tv, some free DVD's to watch, and a book swap. - younglisa

Just sorry we could only stay one night. What a wonderful setting on Lake Buchanan! It looked like boating and swimming were available. Sites were easy to get into. It is a winding road of about 9 miles off the highway, but well worth the drive. - Joanne Sprott

Rate reflects Rally Rate for 40+ rigs. Park is easy to access off State Hwy 29, and is located on the southeast side of Lake Buchanan by the spillway of Buchanan Dam in Burnet, Texas. Easy check-in, but ensure they assign a site that fits your rig. Many sites have trees; all are fairly level gravel/sand combo with grass, some very near lake access. Very nice cabins. A few long-term RVers, who are neat and well maintained. Nice laundry and restroom/showers, with ADA-compliant access. Wi-fi is weak in spots, but solid at the clubhouse. Office has some emergency supplies. Full hookups (30 & 50 Amp) and easy connections; no cable and scant OTA reception (1 channel). We used the clubhouse for our rally which offered full kitchen, tables/chairs, and outside BBQ pits--very nice! They have VERY strict pet rules to protect all guests, so read those before your arrival. Website offers many discount options. Will definitely visit here again! - texasgal54
