10 Parks near Canyon Lake, Texas
May 2011 - $21.00
A little dusty, as previously noted - but so is most of Texas in this drought. Decent sized sites. At $21.00 this place was a good deal at Canyon Lake. If you are towing & can't back up, you might want to park at the office and walk thru to check out the campground. We found a dead end street after we'd turn down it. Fair Verizon coverage, several channels of TV with the rooftop antennae. We would stay here again. - rmlarson

We spent a week here. We picked this CG because there is a Dollar General store right next door. We did not bring a toad with us so it was very convenient. The workers were pleasant and courteous. Our only complaint was with the dirt roads in the CG. Winds were 15+ mph every day so there was a lot of dust everywhere. We would stay here again. - Steve & Mary

We stayed here five nights. Nice parks with good hookups and friendly management. We had a pull through site with plenty of room for our 38' motorhome, tow dolly, and car. There was some road noise noticeable when both A/C's were off, however it seemed to die down later in the evening. We used this as a center point going to Fredericksburg, New Braunfels, and San Marcos. WiFi was good. I would return to this park at a later date. - menichols

Park has new owners as of the first of the year. Name has been changed to Canyon Cove. Previous reviews are accurate for previous owners. New owners are working hard to clean up the park and change the image. To their credit this park was so run down that this cannot happen overnight. Old RVs are being moved out. New RVs are already filling those spaces. Restrooms and showers are not currently available, but portable toilets are located around the park. We are in a full hook-up site so that is not a problem. There is no laundry currently at the park but there is one close by. Except for entrance all roads are gravel. Also note it is difficult to enter the park from the west due to the location of a traffic light. I highly recommend coming from the east to the park!
Now for the good! Park grounds are actually beautiful with a spring fed upper pond that feeds a flowing stream of small waterfalls down to a lower pond near the entrance. Most RV sites are far enough away from the highway that there is minimal road noise. Park is very quiet at night. There are huge trees throughout the park and many of the sites are shady. There are many full hook-up sites with 30/ 50 amp service. Wi-Fi is being installed. Cable TV is available but a box has to be rented. Not a problem as reception of most major channels from San Antonio is good with an RV amplified antenna. Our rate reflects a monthly stay. Give the new owners another year and this park will be rated much higher. - gbm2001

It is a permanent resident park with old trailers all around. Not very clean. We would not stay again. Site not level. - glohills

I have been here for 4 weeks. I am utterly miserable. The park has so much potential to be great, but it fails in every way. The residents are mostly very poor and trashy. Every day, I deal with neighbors screaming and yelling and fighting and cussing. There is large amounts of drug use and sales going on here. The cops come in frequently to deal with domestic violence with my neighbors. There is loud blaring redneck and ghetto gangster rap music playing constantly. There is also a lot of theft from items left outside in cars and around the rv's. This place has a lot of free roaming stray cats that just breed and breed and breed. There are several loose dogs that are very aggressive. The owner (although a very nice woman) is only on site on Sundays. The park has lots of trash around. I can't even bare to go into the nightmare of a laundry room that's in a metal airplane hanger. I leave to go to a nice laundromat. The "ponds" are nothing but disgusting muck waste water filled with trash and who knows what else. They're also horrid mosquito breeding pits. I really have nothing nice to say about this park. I really regret moving here. I'm leaving as soon as this month is up. What a complete nightmare. - Forestwoman

There are 30 water and electric sites at this campground. The sites are back-in, paved, big rig friendly and mostly level. There is a fire ring, nice covered picnic table and BBQ grill at each site. All have a view of the lake. There are very few amenities, no camp store, no pier, no pool, no playground, no lake swimming area that I could see. If you have a boat, there is a launch. The campground is quiet; there were deer roaming in the distance and birdwatching opportunities. There is a food market and a few restaurants in town within a few miles. Some of the sites are first come first serve, they filled up over the weekend. We had a pleasant stay here. - mohocamper

All pretty new as it had to be rebuilt from floods. Many good level spots but I think next time I will try to get spot 15. Park hosts are very good and knowledgeable about surroundings. Again infrastructure is very good. There is goos spacing between sites that and asphalt. There is some shade and a fire ring, patio and picnic table at the sites. - George M

part of camp ground closed due to previous flooding. Campsites nice and decently spaced. You have about a 50% chance of getting a fairly level pad. Some had level part only about 10 feet in length, the rest sloping. Good reception for Verizon and about 10 TV channels via antenna. - rockhill

After reading reviews of this RV Park we decided to stay here and made a reservation for 3 nights. After arriving we soon learned that the website made this park appear nicer that what it really turned out to be. The management was very friendly and helpfull, but they seem to be lacking when it comes to enforcing the rules on those that are permanent residents. The area around the spaces of the permanent residents was messy and many of the rigs were in disrepair. We had are two young children with us and arrived around 6PM and by the time we were finished setting up around 7PM the kids wanted to play. Although this is described as a family park we felt as though the atmosphere dictated that at this early hour it was quiet time and the kids should be kept inside. Additionally, the park was small and difficult to manuever around. With or without children there are much better choices in the area. - Lawman5383

Price reflects C2C membership. Electricity is metered, so that is an additional charge. Campground was very easy to find. There is a security gate at the entrance to campground. This is a standard "parking lot" style campground. However, they easily handle big rigs. Sites are close together. There was room in the site for the truck, 5th wheel and jeep. Gravel roads through the campground. Each camp site is gravel with a little grass. There are trees throughout the campground. Sites are all level. Each site had a picnic table. There was an adult only and a family pool. However, despite the 80+ temperature, the pools were not open. Nice laundry room. There were about 15 deer living/wondering through the campground. Lake is accessible from the campground by bike or walking. Many of the campsites have a good view of the lake. There were benches, porch swings and picnic tables throughout the campground to enjoy the lovely view. Good Verizon coverage. Easy to get DirecTV satellite. - Priceless RV Adventures

Had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back! Office staff were very nice and helpful. Pool and gym were great. Site was large and spacious. Enjoyed the numerous deer. - Katrina

This rate reflects Coast to Coast rate. We really enjoyed our time here. The first thing we saw as we pulled up to register was a herd of deer, 24 to be exact. We found out that they are there most of the day but especially in the morning and evenings. They are friendly enough to feed from a distance. When checking in we were asked how long we wanted to stay and answered a few days. I suspect that is why we were told to select a spot in the C or D loops as this area does not have full hookups. No sewers. That was fine for us as the D loop is loosely based on a large circle with open space in the middle so we felt less crowded. We could not see the lake but there are very few spots that can. There are trails to the lake and it is a good place to unleash your dog. The interior roads are gravel and kind of rough but manageable. Satellite and antenna worked well but we could not use our Tmobile cell at all. - mikenchelby

Have been to Potters Creek many times and the part is always in good order. Problem is that floods in the past 2 years have wiped Potters Creek out and they are talking about it being another year before they are back in full operation. At the time they have 26 sites open to walk ins only. Cranes Mill is a good alternative for good or until the park is reopened full speed. Everything was good in this park before the floods and I imagine will be just as good or better in the future. - George M

This is a very lovely COE park that was made more enjoyable by the 50% discount from our Senior Lifetime National Parks Pass. Our site was very level with a covered picnic table and fire ring. As with most COE campgrounds, only water and electricity was available. The dump station was very convenient located. The restrooms were nice and the showers were large with great water pressure; however, the contractors did not clean them very well when we were there. The rest of the park was very well maintained. The lake was very low when we were there in November 2014 for a week. We stayed in the upper area with a lot of shade and wildlife; the deer literally walked up to the units next to the fence. We will definitely go back again. - SewSoBeachy

Beautiful COE park, especially when getting 50% off with National Parks Senior Pass. Paved roads and concrete pads. The blind
back-in sites back up to the Canyon Lake 150' away so you could hear some boat traffic. VERY large sites with covered picnic tables. We chose an open site (99) allowing the rooftop dish easy access, the 50a utilities worked well (no sewer so used the dump station), Verizon hotspot worked well, rooftop TV antenna worked well also. We'll remember this CG the next time in this area. - big greg

We stayed here for a week which reflects the rate plus $3 a day for cable. We originally chose to stay in the area to visit Austin and San Antonio, but it was still too far for both. The sites are gravel pull thru with your door facing a neighbor, but plenty of space between. Plenty of grass areas to walk pets and watch the deer come around at sunset. There is access to the river for fishing which many campers do, but none of the sites are actually on the river. Utilities were fine with ideal placement for connections. The pool was not open this time of year, so not much at the camp as far as activities. There are rest rooms which are also used by non campers that come to fish and could use some work. Very basic place 12 miles off the highway which made a long drive to the cities to do anything. If we return to the area we would probably stay closer to the city. - pfogleboch

Restrooms as mentioned leave a lot to be desired but the rest of the park is great! Long sites well spaced. Lots of shade (can make it hard to get satellite). Very nice and helpful staff. Fully stocked store. Pool perfect temperature. Right on the river and they offer river rafting right there with shuttle to drop you off up the river and float back down to campground. RV storage behind it. Good burgers at a stand nearby as well as car wash and laundromat off site. - Katrina

We stayed here to attend the Wimberley Flea Market. The park was clean and quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful. Pets are allowed during certain months. If traveling with friends, most sites face each other. Check the weather. In February it can get very cold, our water hose froze. We still had a great time and would camp here again. - captwink

Stayed here for a few months, rate reflects monthly rate. It does include electric. Staff is great, but campground needs help. Cabins are drab brown, roads need to be better maintained as there are big holes that can require you to have a front end alignment done, Roads are dusty and a lot of shuttles coming through at high rates of speed, Monday through Friday and a few Saturdays there is a motorcycle that leaves around 5:50am that wakes you up. No security to speak of when special events are going on in the town. There are port a potty's in the tent area and the person that cleans them and pumps them out flies through the campground stirring up dust. Because of the dust the AC units pull this into the rigs leaving a film over everything. All traffic causes dust. We will not return. Again the staff was great and did everything that they could do to help. The campground needs to be upgraded badly and it would be a super place. - dbll&buffy

Some of the turns were tight, and gravel roads had some potholes. Buildings were old and tired but clean. I would stay again Good Sam should have rated 6/5/6. - 2001dutchstar

Rate reflects Passport America. This is our third time staying at Riverside, and we have enjoyed it each time. This time we had a back-in site that was shaded by one of the large live oaks. We did some laundry, and machine prices we very reasonable. Bathrooms are not great but adequate and could use some updating. One potential problem we see is that there is a building just outside of the park that is being renovated, and it will be a "biker" bar. We don't have any problem with bikers, but the noise from the bar might become a problem. We will stay here again. - StarlifterFE

Walnut Canyon RV park is not the worst park we've been to. The electrical, water, and sewer connections are new, the Wi-Fi is good, and the park is shaded. A few negatives stood out, though: The newly built showers are "pull-chain", and only supply cold water. The roads throughout the park are bumpy, uneven, gravel, and some turns are tight. Most of the residents here are "long-term", and have junk accumulating around their rigs. Some sites are not level. The photos on the web site to not accurately represent the park, and the "hiking trail" is littered with scrap iron, refuse, old toilets, and a lot of PVC pipe. The fishing pond is now a deep, dry, hole. The price is good for the area, but we wouldn't stay again. - User2888

Activities center around the large water park and the bounce area at the front. The playgrounds were nice and plentiful. There were several Easter weekend activities, including egg hunts and hay rides. The park was nearly full. It was great to see families and children everywhere. There were many cabins and rooms in addition to the RV spaces.
We stayed in a "premier" back-in, no slide-outs space. The gravel site was quite unlevel, requiring the longest front jack deployment we've ever used to obtain front-to-back level. The site also required one lynxleveler block on the curb side for side-to-side level. Parking across from the site made it difficult to back in. Out site view from the front was the RV storage area, and we had a view into other sites from the rear.
To be properly situated, we had to back our 30 ft trailer right up to the fire pit, making it unusable. The power and water connections were mid-trailer, and the sewer connection was well behind the trailer, requiring two long sections of RhinoFlex sewer hose. The trailer wastewater connection to the sewer outlet had little fall.
We were close to the trailer next to us, and we could not deploy our main awning. There was a large tree on the curb side. The picnic table and fire ring were behind the trailer, while most sites had these beside the trailer.
Park is on septic system, so you must use only septic system safe products. - GKLott

Do you know how some parks you just don't get a good vibe from? This is one for us. The whole dog shot records that took up more than 45 min while at the gate was not needed. We had all our dogs paperwork but they didn't seem to know what the heck they were doing.
They got our site wrong and put someone else in our site...they found an open site for us but had to spend another 45 min waiting on everyone to sort that out.
There are tons of tent campers here...they walk through your campsite like you are having a yard sale. It's sad really.
They are TONS of RV parks in this area. Avoid this one. They nickel and dime you to death at this park and they are rude.
We'll never return here. - RollingRock

We have been to this Jellystone several times. All our experiences have been very good! They have good activities for kids of all ages. Love the pancake breakfast they host often. It’s nice to give me a break cooking! This last Thanksgiving we also were at Jellystone. It was great fun at the group dinner!! The only thing that would improve this campground is some updates in the restrooms. They are very clean, but a little on the dated side. Very friendly helpful staff! We are not Winter Texans, but they had a very fun group staying there the last time we went. We will return again!! - Texas Traveler
