5 Parks near Burnet, Texas
Apr 2015 - $40.00
This is an attractive park situated on a lake with a boat ramp. The ramp is available for public use so there is some additional traffic generated by it. The roads and sites are gravel. Quite a few of the sites appear to be seasonal rentals. Our site wasn't level front to back; getting our MH leveled was manageable but our sewer hose had to go uphill to get to the drain. This meant that the tanks couldn't fully drain and created a messy situation when we disconnected. The people in the office were very pleasant but the person who spoke with me forgot to tell me that our pull-through site entered from behind and required that we go around a loop to pull in. Since we were arriving after hours this could have been problem if it already had been dark when we arrived. I would have rated the park a 9 or 10 but with the sewer situation I couldn't. - docj

This park is just about how the reviews make it out to be. The term "resort" is used loosely but all in all not a bad place to stay. The worst thing about our stay was the stickers in the dogs feet, there are stickers everywhere. Other points are, easy check in, friendly office staff, our site was not very level and was mostly dirt, granite gravel, utilities were ok except for the sewer hose that had to flow uphill, had to trim a couple of limbs to get the slides out. Lots of winter Texans but all of the folks we met were very nice, we did have a nice view of the lake. - Higgs

They gave us the PA rate even though they said they were no longer part of that program. Even at the higher rate, this park is a good value. Our pull thru site (#25) was extremely long and was a "buddy site", meaning the next site (#26) faced the opposing direction, where you and your traveling companion's entry doors faced each other. Yet, there was a good 30 ft of native grass common area between you. Very nice set-up for 2 rigs traveling together. The native grass area had burrs this time of year, so you had to pick them out of shoes before entering your rig. The sites are a packed dirt and gravel. It was dry when we were here, so no issues for us. Good hook-ups but weak WiFi. They do have an exercise room (nothing fancy, a treadmill and 2 stationary bikes), a laundry facility with 2 washers and 2 dryers (older, but clean), a small but nice pool and hot tub that was well landscaped, a small playground. The hot tub was not on in January but looked nice. They have access to Lake Buchanan for small boats and canoes. Little road noise. Options of shade and no shade sites. Cabins on site looked well maintained from exterior. Grounds were clean, no signs of neglect. Outstanding service. Would definitely stay here again, with or without the PA rate. - Selectively Unemployed

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

We stayed 4 nights in site #14. Asphalt interior roads and pads, crushed granite patio. Fire rings provided and firewood available to purchase from host ($7/bundle). Good 50A electrical service, conveniently located sewer hook-ups, good water pressure but poor water quality (>600 ppm dissolved solids). RV campsite fees $36/night PLUS $4 per person per day entrance fee PLUS $6.50 reservation fee resulting in a per day cost of over $45 per night. Well groomed hiking trails. Beautiful setting and scenery. Site 14 faces west. Best sites: 17, 19, 13, and 18. You are routed to check in at the lodge, but there is no area to park your RV and the road is very tight. The road in the adjacent campground is good. We would stay there again. - drfife

We stay here two times a year, spring and fall. This is a convenient and clean park. The city owns the facility which also has a pool and exercise equipment plus baseball fields. There are only a few sites, which are available on a first-come basis. They have several long term renters ($350/month including electricity) and, at any given time, there are only 4-5 sites open. This is the best choice for a Burnet stay with full hookups. - Judy H.

On the south end of town, right next to large recreation/pool center, not much shade (none). Right on highway, but still relatively quiet. Check in at rec. center by teens working for the summer and more interested in socializing with each other, so nothing explained/introduced. Never could get the cable TV hooked up, but everything else worked well. Good level, wide spaces and clean. Several good restaurants in the area (Maxican, Storms, Giovani's). We'd stop here again. - jpatt

We came here for a few nights and so far have stayed 3 months. There is a railroad directly beside campground but at least they do not blow horns. There is a four lane highway on other side but not terribly busy. We came here because in a golf magazine saying golf across street but it is actually 2.5 miles away. It is a very busy golf course. Most of the sites are occupied by construction workers that go to work around 5:30 a.m. They have no concern for other campers and slam doors and rev up motors. Then when they have finally left city park workers come to the city shed and of course they all start up chain saws, tractors, etc. On the plus side the sites are angled and we had an end site. Also, when you stay here you get full access to the health club next door which has 2 swimming pools and about any health club machine or activity you could imagine. There is a large area to walk in that is in the city park of which this park is part of. We had tornado warnings a few times and they have no provision for any place for campers to go. - full time betty

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

This is not a park that we will return too. The bath houses are old and need update and a good cleaning. The sites are not level. No help in finding site. Most all the sites are taken up with full time permanent trailers, a lot of junk around most of them. If we had not paid in advance we would have left. - Dannytoo

A well managed and clean park with friendly and helpful staff. Be sure to drive into the RV site area and make sure you get a site that is fairly level. Our pull through site was way out of level so we had to go back to the office and get one near it. Great view of the lake from almost any site. We would stay here again if in the area. - Jay O

This state park is mostly campground. There are some trails around the entrance station where you might avoid the crowd, but for the most part you will always be within sight of people. Since Texas state parks take reservations but not sites, you are in the unknown with regard to what site you will get, so it was annoying being told by the entrance station attendant to pick a site from those available, sight unseen. We picked one, drove in, did not like the site, went back, and picked another. I aked if they had pictures of each site, and the answer was "no". Summary: Check in is cumbersome. Campsites are a narrow strip of asphalt, with a relatively spacious area to spread out in. Sites on the lake side of the road are very open with trees, sometimes open with no trees, and little shrubbery to separate sites. On the non lake side, it appeared campsites had some vegetation separating sites. our site, #81, was superb for birdwatching. Hookups were perfect. Site was sloped, but easily leveled. C Spire phone service was 4 bar 3G. OVer-the-air was terrible with only 3 channels received. Bicycling was okay, running along with traffic on the main park road and through loops. We rented a canoe for $15 per hour, and it was nice out on the lake. Camp store was pricey. Star gazing event was $4 per person, but we did not attend since we already have a a telescope. The best part of being here was the bird life and wildflowers. Roadrunners rule! Cuckoos, vireos, painted buntings, numerous doves, and screech owls were constantly in the campsite. We would camp here again, and try to get site #81 because of the shade, brush, birds, and lizards. - The Happy Traveler

We stayed again at Ink Lake state park and had a great time. The park is beautiful and the staff very helpful. I wish they would add more 50 amp sites and sewer service for longer stays. The staff is friendly. - jayc
