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. We camped at Canyon of the Eagles Lodge & Nature Park in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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. We camped at Canyon of the Eagles Lodge & Nature Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Despite the rain (and the area needs it!), we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Well maintained, plenty of shade and with the exception of space between slots 10 and 11, most are comfortably spaced to prevent you from having to feel you are camping with your neighbors. Slot 11 had the advantage of a path down to the lake! For those who want a nice restaurant or amenities of the resort, they are only a short walk away. Located just 60 miles from NW Austin, it is an easy get-away for the weekend, highly recommend it. Price kept it from receiving a "10" though. $32 per night, plus $5 administration fee, plus $4 per adult per night. It adds up, but we will be back.

Wow! This park was fantastic, a 9.5. Easy in and out. Nice big sites, not exactly level, but better than Inks Lake which is nearby. Beautiful lodge facilities, a restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We didn’t eat there, so can’t report on the quality of the cooking, but the menu was interesting and varied. Lovely, clean pool with a great view of Lake Buchanan. The lake is very low right now, so it looks rather sad, but still scenic. Bluebonnets and wildflowers everywhere. Miles and miles of gorgeous walking trails. Birds galore. Saw and photographed the endangered Black-capped Vireo. Lots of Painted Buntings. Highly recommend this place for a Spring trip, April being the choice month for birding and flowers. Saw many snakes, so be aware. Almost rated a full “10”. Highly recommended.

Canyon of the Eagles is a very nicely maintained park and we definitely enjoyed our stay. The sites are well maintained, fairly large, and easy to get into and out of. Since it is an LCRA park, it is a little expensive. The sites are $20 a night plus a $4 day use fee for each adult so for us that was $28 per day. We enjoyed the hiking trails but the lake level was so low, we didn't do any water activities. We camped at Canyon of the Eagles Lodge & Nature Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Canyon of the Eagles, a LCRA "resort" (expensive for us) run by concessionaires. The resort is nice, with cabins a pretty good restaurant and beautiful views of Lake Buchanan near Burnet TX. There is an RV park just down the hill a short way from the resort. It was OK, but not sure we'll go again. Not allowed to use the pool at the resort (but allowed to spend $$ at the restaurant) and the lake access for swimming was VERY limited, summer in TX near a lake and can't get in??. There was a very nice amateur celestial observatory on the property that was a highlight. As for the RV park itself, spaces were $23 per night PLUS $4/day/person use fee, sites were narrow, not level, views of lake very limited. So, our next trip (from San Antonio) in this direction will be Ink Lake St Park. Been there before, good lake access and views! We camped at Canyon of the Eagles Lodge & Nature Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was very quiet and beautiful. There are lots of trails to walk or bike through. We took the Vanishing River Cruise but did not see any bald eagles. The lake levels were down about 15 feet due to a drought; so, there were places along the hiking trails that didn't have water that should have. Overall, we really enjoyed this spot. We would definitely stay here again. For reservations call: (512) 715-0290 We camped at Canyon of the Eagles Lodge & Nature Park in a Travel Trailer.
Until this year, we would rate this park a 9 or a 10. THIS YEAR, LCRA has split the park up to different concessionaires, with the lodge and adjacent RV park being run by different companies. You no longer have access to the lodge facilities - this includes the pool. After 5 years of coming to this park, we won't be back again.

this is a LCRA park in Burnet on Lake Buchanan. Beautiful view of the lake at some campsites. Facilities are very clean. Park Host on duty. It is 20.00 a night with a 5.00 user fee per adult. There are trails for bird viewing as well as wildlife. There are 2 fishing piers and one is great for watching the sunset and listening for wild ducks, cranes and other wildlife. Very relaxing environment. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Canyon of the Eagles Lodge & Nature Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park. Will be coming back. Really friendly staff. Paved sites. No cable but we didn't even miss it with all the beauty, hiking trails, lake. Small and quiet. We loved it. We camped at Canyon of the Eagles Lodge & Nature Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed staying at the park, the brush/grass around the sites could have been trimmed better as it was quite tall which made setting up a little inconvenient and required regularly cleaning burrs out of socks & shoes. Also, they could have better explained how they collect the fees for staying at the campground. Overall it was a good experience and we will return to the the park in the future and would recommend the park to friends. We camped at Canyon of the Eagles Lodge & Nature Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park, and park host was very helpful and friendly. Plenty to do in the area to include some great hiking trails of varying length. The trails are also bicycle friendly. The lodge is located very close to the RV park and has a gameroom restaurant and pool that were all very nice. We were slightly disappointed by a few things. The park is in a somewhat isolated area, the closest grocery store is in Burnett, about 20 miles away. My expectation was that the park store would have some basic essential items, bread, milk, water, firewood, and posibly some fishing bait as the park is located on a lake. No such luck, so my advice to future campers would be to bring everything that you will need for the length of your stay. The isolation does have its advantages as the view of the stars at night is incredible. The park is also very quiet. In addition to the base rate of $20 there is a $5 per day charge for everyone over 13. We ended up paying $30 a night which was probably appropriate, however if my kids were older $35-$50 a night, I feel would be excessive. Some other things you should be aware of: The lake levels are low and about half of the hiking trails are closed from 1 Mar - 31 Aug for various birds mating in the area, even with those trails closed there is still plenty on hiking. Also, depending on your cell phone carrier there is limited to no cell coverage. We camped at Canyon of the Eagles Lodge & Nature Park in a Travel Trailer.
This was our second trip to the park. Full hookups, free wireless, swimming pool, beautiful views of the lake from the lodge area. There are many things to do here. Fishing, boating, swimming, hiking, biking. There's a large observatory where they give tours of the sky. The Vanishing Texas River Cruise operates from the park, giving lunch and dinner cruises up Lake Buchanan and up the Colorado river - in the winter you can see bald eagles nesting along the river. Definitely one of our favorite parks near Austin. Much less crowded than Inks Lake or Bastrop State Parks. We camped at Canyon of the Eagles Lodge & Nature Park in a Travel Trailer.
