19 RV Parks near Buchanan Dam, Texas
Sep 2016 - $30.00
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

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

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

This is a wonderful little park located on the shores of Lake Buchanan in the Texas Hill Country. It is family owned and operated. The RV sites have lots of shade with very large trees. The entire complex is extremely level. There are even a few cabins to rent. The caretakers were very friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the area. We are already planning to return. I almost forgot there is also a concrete boat ramp in the park. The lake however is low at this time due to a prolonged drought and the ramp was not available for us to use. - ralphobell

Stayed here a week on vacation, very nice and clean park. Had the buffet breakfast Sunday morning and was disappointed. Food was cold. Overall the RV sites are nice and not on top of each other. Sites are challenging as far as leveling. Lots of trees for shade. Just make sure that you have plenty of groceries when you arrive as the drive to Burnet HEB is a 20 minute drive or so. Will come back again! - TexasNolan

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

Found by accident when local State Park was full. Great accident as the park is right on lake LBJ with a boat launch and docks, motel rooms, level gravel sights with good wood picnic tables. The cable TV and WiFi is included as well as 30 & 50 amp electric, water and sewer. Will definitely come back when we are in the area again. Pool is unheated but quite large. Mini golf is an added charge. - Billb1

This is a great park to bring a family. They have a swimming pool, miniture golf, game room, and they are on the lake. - User3263

We were looking for an RV park on Lake LBJ with boat ramp/slips. Lake LBJ is a long, narrow lake, with water more murky than other lakes in the area. This park is on the upper end of Lake LBJ, almost to Inks Lake. This park has a variety of facilities to include cabins, houses, lodge and condos as well as RV spaces. RV spaces are up and away from the water, relatively level but very close to each other so can be noisy after 10pm with kids, but not rowdy. RV rows are terraced as well as narrow making arrival and departure tricky. Several long termers, but most are well kept. On site owners informative and helpful. Boat slips are extra fee and some of the older ones were unusable due to being exposed on the narrow lake without “no wake” zone. Nice grounds, big trees by the water with benches to sit, relax and watch the sunset, not as nice or pretty in RV section. - jpatt

Stayed at a cabin on Sunday 4/16/17 - Monday 4/17/17. The locations on the cabins are great and the area is beautiful. I would recommend Cabin 1 or 2 for its location.They have a playground for kids, nearby showers and restrooms, a volleyball net, and lots of space to explore and have fun. We drove to the Devil's waterhole, but did not cross the lake to jump the cliffs. But lots of people were doing it, including small children. Hiking the cliffs are so fun and there are small waterfalls around that area in which you can swim. Do take water shoes and be careful since most rocks on the lake by water falls are very slippery. This was the only down side since it could be dangerous for small kids. We also went swimming with our own tubes and people dis pass by with their pedal boats and canoes. There is lots of areas to go swimming that are low and safe, but remember that it is a lake, so some areas further away are deep. I would definitely go back , but hopefully I will reserve for at least 3 nights to enjoy the park more. - Sammy from Houston

This is a beautiful park with great facilities and lots to do (30/50 AMP, water but no sewer). There is camping, backpacking, hiking, geocaching, swimming, boating and fishing. Most campsites have good spacing from neighbors and some shade. There is lots of interesting geology and wildlife. There is a small grocery store, as well as canoe, kayak, and paddle boat rentals. Campsites are in good shape and close to the water. It is a very popular park, so reservations are recommended for weekends and holidays. - MovinOnDownTheRoad

Nice state park. Sites are all back-ins. Ours was a little difficult because of alot of overhanging tree branches.
We had a nice site overlooking one arm of the lake.
They have canoe,kayak and paddleboat rentals at the camp store. Unfortunately, it rained the whole 3 days we were here, but we'd definitely return to this park if in the area. - wntrtxn

Only 8 campsites, but every site is what one is looking for when searching for a well kept RV Park. We used this cc as our hub as we ventured a different direction of The Hill Country looking for wildflowers. The young couple that own and operate this park are on their game to earn your trust and to help your stay at their park a pleasurable experience. - Jloftin

This place is far from being classified as a resort. The entrance to the park is nothing more than a mobile home park. The RV sites are stacked on top of each other with barely enough room to extend your awning. Parked next to us was a an old motor home with a window a/c unit boarded into to side window that had obviously been there for years. Parking is a nightmare, as boats, trailers, jet skis lined the street and every inch of space found. Although the staff were nice and helpful, we'll not be back. - kbennett

This park is in a great location to get on the river. The Colorado River here is wide enough to ski on, and works its way to beautiful constant level Lake LBJ. There is a boat ramp and slips for you to park your boat. The pool seemed nice. The check in was easy, they had our reservation and I was out of there in 5 minutes. There are quite a few permanent residences here even some old mobile homes. It is pretty tight and there were some spots that would take some jack knifing to get in. I wouldn't go so far to call it a resort but I would probably stay here again, especially if I want access to the river/lake. My cable didn't cooperate but there were a lot of channels on the antennae. - Nedster

Nice park on Lake LBJ. Great fishing and boating. Water was very hard - undrinkable. Had to buy bottled water for drinking. A lot of permanent residents. Hookups were not in great shape. Nice staff and great location. - DrDean99

This park could be such a gem. The people running the park are such nice people. The WIFI worked well as did the utilities which are placed at the proper location. Laundry room was super clean with nice machines. The problem as stated by other people was the burrs that are everywhere in the park. It was necessary to clean our dogs paws after every run to the tune of at least 50 total burrs. Why not build a dog run and plant some grass? I really liked this park, however the burrs will keep me from ever coming back. We camped here in a 40' motorhome. - illini777

This park is very nice, quiet and well set up. We were there for 2 weeks. The sites are fairly close together but long enough to park our pickup in front of our 38 foot fifth wheel, without being in the road. Each site also has an extra parking spot. There was a lighting strike at the campground which took out the wifi, and they never did get it running while we were there. It has a nice sized laundry room and a small exercise room. Staff delivered packages to our site. Easy access to the river. - Ghettomedic

Nice park close to the river. Gravel pads, good space between neighbors. Nice recreation room, showers and kitchen. We rented kayaks for the entire day, $30 dollars each. My only complaint the sticker burs that were excessive throughout the entire park, large grassy field leading out to the river and even in our space grassy patch by the rig. It made our stay feel very inconvenienced. We had to carry out dog down to the water during walks. Also spent most of the time plucking burrs from paws, flip flops and throw rugs in our rig. Nice park except for the burrs. Suggest to the park, seasonal weed treatment and being very proactive on mowing after the spring rains. - Fulsom Family
