22 Parks near Burnet, Texas
Nov 2016 - $13.00
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 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

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

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

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

Gorgeous place with great amenities and everyone camping around us were polite and quiet. Easy access. We're definitely going back. Our rating would have been a 10 except for the cleanliness of the bathrooms. - traveling bug

This is a very nice state park. The sites are very spacious, there is grass between all the sites, fire rings, picnic tables and they are supposed to have WIFI but we could never get it to connect. All utilities worked well. The park is kept very clean. Sites were fairly level. Satellite coverage was easy to get. Very popular park so we were only able to stay 3 nights. Weekends book up months in advance, even in the off season. We would stay here again. - jacknpeg

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
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
Nov 2015 - $25.00
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
Apr 2012 - $28.00
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

When we arrived, there was a note and directions to our location. Didn't see anyone at the office until the next day. The park is on a hillside over the lake and parking was difficult for a large rig. Lot of full time residence. Park was average at best. Would stay here again, as choices are limited in the area. - Boatman
Apr 2010 - $30.00
The previous ratings are accurate except we paid $30 a night for three nights. There is one long term unit that is pretty trashy but the rest of the park looks good and is well kept. We were able to pick up an unsecured Internet connection that served our needs well. - Andy B.

Reviews below hit the nail on the head, but park is dated and some spots are small ans peculiar. If you can get one of the four or five spots on the river front then this place may jump to a 9 or 10 otherwise it is average to below average, but right in Marble Falls - cottonwood

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
Jun 2008 - $30.00
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 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
