20 Parks near Caldwell, Texas
Oct 2016 - $35.00
This is a brand-new park and possibly represents the parks we'll see in the future. The first thing you'll notice is no picnic tables, no fire pits or rings.
Believe me, the park looks great without them! There is lush green grass at every site. It is well mowed and very neat, unbroken by tables and fire rings. How often did you use either...when you traveled.
The majority of the park is long term employed, predominantly 5th wheels on back-in sites. The park holds 10-12 pull through sites for overnight travelers so they don't have unhook. The park is clean to almost prim, and all sites are well kept. The park rules on their brochure include a simply stated "Three strikes and you're out policy". The rules are followed. Everyone likes the owners and the results of the rules, so they don't need enforcement.
There is no Texas dust! The roads are double wide blacktop, the RV pads are level cement with blacktop aprons. The sites are very long. The site is half again as wide in the front. Once you are parked, this extra width will be your patio. The utilities are all part of a pagoda style pedestal and work well. Even the pedestal light works! There is lots of room around each site.
The cable is very good, sharp and clear. The Wi-fi works very well with a choice of three hot-spots.
There is a small, well maintained home style pool. Also a workout room with new equipment that actually works and is used. A game room with adult games e.g. air hockey, pool, etc. And, a laundry that is very big and clean. All three of these activity rooms pass one to the other and all are next to the office for ease of monitoring. There is also an Assembly Hall for family get togethers, potlucks and other activities.
The park is "L" shaped and a picnic shelter/pavilion is located at each end.
There are tables, grills and a big fire pit at each.
You'll see pictures on their website, it is a great park! - Jack B

New park that has been open since around Oct-2015. Owners and family are hands on-constantly working-a few permanents but very well organized-everything works very good-Rural area within (1) mile of Caldwell. A good variety of eating places-Walmart etc-Cannot find any negatives about this place. - jc2

This is a brand new park that has only been open for a short time. The hosts are very gracious and Melissa was awesome. The facility is very clean and fresh and has a very nice layout. There is grass between all the sites and an occasional very young oak tree. I suggested to the owners to "Plant more Trees".
The full-service sites are pristine with perfectly level double-wide concrete pads. The only problem I had at the site was the location of the pedestal. It was located at the very back of the site so I had to use water and electrical extensions to reach my RV that was centered on the pad. This was not that big of a deal but something to note.
The climate controlled rest room/shower was also pristine, and they have a very nice large laundry room, a work out room and a game room with coin operated games.
My complaints - this park charges extra if you want a picnic table and a fire pit at your site. To me as a weekend RV'er, a picnic table should be an automatic and always included. And their Non-Refundable cancellation policy is a bit extreme and will likely prevent some folks from making reservations.
The only other issue to mention is that this park is located right off a very busy Hwy 21.....so the traffic noise is constant.
That being said; this is a very nice park with tons of potential. I realize the main focus for these parks is the long-term guest, but a few modest changes might enhance their weekend traffic. - Tcamper

Very rural but safe sites with shade in a pecan grove beside large pecan farm near College Station and Kyle Field. Access to the interstate. - rvpro290

Had planned on staying here overnight but when I pulled in and drove through the CG I found it to be dirty with a lot of not very neat permanent rigs and dogs running loose or tied up outside with no one in sight. Decided to keep driving. - retiredhappy

We have stayed here before. An OK overnight park. Cable TV is a little fuzzy and we couldn't get a Wi-Fi signal as we were too far from the office. We were in a pull-throug where you first come in. Train nearby but we didn't hear it at night. I would stay here again. - nedmtnman

Great little campground for overnight. Easy in and easy out. Nice long, level, pull throughs. Internet adequate, lots of cable channels. We asked where we could get air for our RV tires and the owner brought over his own compressor so we could fill our tires. Very friendly, very nice guy. Would stop again for overnight. Lots of burrs though that bothered our dog, but I think that's common everywhere down here. - Rambling All Around

Pulled in late and knew it was a mistake. Couldn't get a reply at any other CG in area. Finally found office in very back. Nothing level in this park. So many people live here full time, lots of noise. Some of the neighbors were really far out. Seems like a party place. We stayed but won't again ever. I don't like dogging someone like this. I can say the front office lady seems like a good person. If I had to stop here again I would try staying at local Walmart. - JustDon

If you are looking for paved roads, concrete sites with a pool and other high dollar amenities keep moving. If you want peace and quiet with a mix of pull thrus and backins with 30/50 electric, sewer and well water that is great right from the tap, then you want this park for a night, a week, or what ever. Owners live on site and very friendly and are always working around the park. Park host or owner will help you get set up. Some permanents but most have clean sites and park is quiet even though on state highway. Laundry and showers available if needed. Not much to do in town but an hours drive is Austin an other way is Bryan/College Station. If 65 or over ask for retired rates. You will be pleased. We were and glad we stayed for a month. Don't forget Snows BBQ on Saturdays. - xarmoreddriver

We were passing through and needed a place for the night. This park is good for that! Full hookups are conveniently placed. Pull-through site. Super friendly and helpful staff. Far enough from the highway that noise wasn't a problem. Shower house is clean, supplied and the water is hot! Some of the park looks as though it could be a muddy place when it is raining, so watch for that ... - SeeTheUSA

If you're looking for resort type park, this is not the park for you, but we would definitely refer our friends. We wanted some place between the two Presidential Libraries and this was the only one. We didn't expect a whole lot at $20 per RV Park Reviews, (they had to raise their rates), $22 a day was the weekly rate. There were quite a few permanent residents, but the park was very quiet and not messy. The laundry is in the office and only has two washers and dryers, but they are not coin operated. It's on the honor system. Large capacity washers and dryers. Unlike coin operated dryers, they go until your clothes are dry. $1 per load. The park had the best WIFI we've experienced in any of our travels, including some of the more expensive resorts. Fast and reliable. As mentioned before, the entrance road is a little rough, however, if you use the northern most entrance, it is much better. Only reason for not giving it a 10 was the fact it had a lot of stickers for walking our Lhasa Apso. This is Texas, so I guess it's a never ending fight. - vwbluestar

We camped at Lake Somerville State Park Birch Creek Unit in Park Host site 95. Officially, the park was still closed due to flooding, but they granted us a 2 night stay so we could complete our goal of camping at every Texas State Park with water and electric RV sites!. The staff was fantastic and welcoming. Most of the trails were closed, but the ones that were open to hiking were very good. They had nesting eagles in the park, but we did not see one. We will return when the flooding subsides. - drfife

Similar to previous reviews, very pleasant, quiet, relatively well maintained, well laid out park. Very helpful park personnel, good room between spaces with privacy further provided by thick underbrush. Our space was paved, but narrow and short, barely room for our 27’ trailer and tow vehicle; also paving was in poor condition. Our space was level left to right, but slanted down front to back. Lots of shade in Post Oak loop (had to trim to keep wind from scraping limbs against RV at night), but not much shade in group trailer loop. Lake was very low during our visit and so hike to lake was long. Looks like good canoeing and kayaking up Yegua creek when water higher (canoes and kayaks rented in park). Over the air TV provided one local station. - jpatt

Nice SP with several different trailer sections. Sites are not paved and most are not very deep. We have a 40' FW. Lake access is short walk from many spaces. We stayed in spot #4 with distant view of lake and only 30A service. Watch for trees overhanging roads. Many deer and fawns. - BBBT

The kids and I stayed here for 2 weeks and had a good time in the area. Pads and the electric were fine. Parking our tow was a concern and management took care of that quick. - Selina Thomas

This is a big park located on the shores of Lake Somerville. Although they offer a limited number of sites that serve 50 amp, all of those sites are located bunched-up close to the marina in the most undesirable part of the park. No internet service in our camping loop and no full hook ups either. The restroom and shower facility ranks as the worst I've ever experienced. We had great neighbors and during our stay, 3 nights total, we never saw anyone affiliated with the park patrol or even ride around our loop. I can only imagine if you get stuck next to a group whose idea of a camping weekend is different from yours....you are on your own. The picnic tables are unusable due to decay and lack of upkeep. Which is generally the problem with the entire park. They have 1 dump station and its located on your exit from the park and includes a tricky turn for medium to larger trailers, 5ers and motor-coaches. To complicate matters, once you've dumped the turn to exit the park is impossible to navigate with a large rig due to the positioning if the exit gates. That forces you to head back into the park and make another tour around the camping loop in order to get your rig positioned correctly to exit the park. Much better options available on the lake. We were forced to stay here due to the US Government Shut-Down that cancelled our reservation with the Corp of Engineers Park. - stlucia

This campground while large, is unkempt. The covered fishing pier is filthy, the walls and ceiling and hand rails are layered in spider webs and inches of dirt and dust and insect larvae. We saw several large water snakes in the tires hanging on the posts in the water. The bathrooms and showers are disgusting. The water on this end of the lake is so rough due to the constant wind that you'll get soaked in a fishing boat. The cabins are basically shacks and appear boarded up from the outside. It turns out those are wood shutters on the inside of the windows. There are so many cobwebs and spiders on the outside of the buildings I can't imagine sleeping in them. This campground is in need of some serious attention. With a little TLC and a good powerwasher and some remodeling of the nearly un usable showers and restrooms, this could be a great family spot. - moacmom

Nice park. We enjoyed the trails. The sites were nice sized. Gave us room to setup all of our "stuff." Bathrooms were okay ... I said clean because they were cleaned daily but some campers don't respect the fact that others use the same facilities. I can't blame the park for some inconsiderate folks. - drhuggybear

I probably would have given a higher rating if the lake had been up and more of the hiking trails were mowed. This park was closed for a while and has re-open and has the potential to be a great park. Cell coverage is spotty. We started in the Cedar Creek camping area where cell coverage was good (AT&T) but Verizon PC Card had no signal. Moved to the Bent Tree Camping area had spotty cell coverage, but Verizon PC Card worked. The Cedar Creek area has some waterfront, view of lake,and other sites. This area had lost a lot of trees because of the drought so the sites are not very private. Bent Tree area (equestrian sites) is more private. The electrical was good in both areas. The water pressure was good too, but I heard a couple of people complain about the water pressure. One of them was giving her horse a bath and the pressure from the water hose looked fine to me. Great hike and bike trails. There is a kids' fishing pond that the park stocks with catfish. I would return, but only in colder weather because of the humidity. Lots to do in the area too. - MelindaK
