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. We camped at Potters Creek Park COE in a Motorhome.

Many, many good small towns to venture off to with much to do in every one. If you want to go tubing it is the tubing Capital of Texas. Even Willie Nelson and many other country stars perform just a few miles from the park on a regular basis. Many eating places on hwy 306 that leads to the park as well as on Potters Creek Road. This area is listed as one of the fastest growing areas of Texas. I would love to live in this area myself.

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. We camped at Potters Creek Park COE in a Travel Trailer.

Potter's Creek is nice and quiet. Located in the Texas Hill Country, campers can enjoy the beautiful clear night sky void of street lights.

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. We camped at Potters Creek Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Our site was very level. All sites seemed to be paved. Water and electricity was available but sewage was not available at the campsite. A dump station is located near the exit. The bathrooms were very clean with very large shower rooms. We did encounter one person at the gate who was fairly rude but every other person working there was wonderful. The lake is low so our lakefront #92 had a view of the lake but a nice walk to reach it! The sites along the lake seemed to be long enough for any size RV. We stayed over a weekend so there was some noise from others but nothing too loud or too late. Overall, I was very happy with our stay here. We camped at Potters Creek Park COE in a Motorhome.

First time I stayed at a COE camp - very nice. I was backed up to a lake. Saw deer every day. Campsites are spacious. Neighbors are not too far away. There are shaded spots, but since I was near the lake, there weren't any trees. Although, the picnic benches all have roofs on them. One shower stall measured 6' x 10'! The other was smaller. Water/electric hookup only, but dump station available. 14 day stay only. I stayed a week because it was so nice. Boat ramp on site. We camped at Potters Creek Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great COE campground with good sites. The price is with a senior pass. About half of the sites have full sun, the others are surrounded by trees. A few sites are not accessible to rigs as tall as ours (13'6"). The restrooms are old but they were clean. There is lots of roads to walk or bike. We would stay here again.

Very relaxing at Canyon Lake. Sites are large and nicely spaced. The sites closer to the lake are in an open area with no trees available for shade. There are sites in the area that has some shade but most do not. Can't imagine camping in the summer heat. Canyon Lake located mid way between Austin and San Antonio. Would be a good base for visiting either area except for the traffic on highway. Visited Fredricksburg one day - a nice place to spend a few hours walking through town. Rate reflects Federal Senior Pass. We camped at Potters Creek Park COE in a Motorhome.

We stayed here, along with friends who stayed in a nearby spot. We found the gate attendants to be friendly and helpful in locating a grocery store. We enjoyed the quiet, peaceful atmosphere, and the location is pretty. We thought it was very family- and pet-friendly. I read reviews about the bathrooms not being clean, but we did not find that to be the case. We would definitely camp here again. We camped at Potters Creek Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here two weeks and really enjoyed it. The place really "comes alive" during the weekends form locals, but quiets down during the weekdays. If it had sewer hookups and trees for shade, would be a definite 10 (can't have everything!). The sites are spaced out from each other and laid out nicely. Plenty of room for most any rig. Lots of spaces. 14 day limit strictly enforced so no long term visitors. We will be back, after going somewhere else for 14 days! Great views of the lake and awesome sunsets over the lakefront. Nice fire pits and BBQ smokers. Great picnic tables. Not too much for the kids to play on, but not applicable for us. We camped at Potters Creek Park COE in a Motorhome.

This is our favorite place to stay when visiting the San Antonio area - about an hour to downtown San Antonio. We prefer the sites on the upper loop 67-84 as there is ample shade there and the trees are trimmed for big rig access. We had good Verizon access and was able to get the satellite from the roof antenna in site 67 - a tripod could get it in most other sites. Our rate reflects the "geezer" pass.

This is a beautiful park with lots of lake views. The water and electric hook-ups are good. Stay Sunday through Thursday if you can as Friday and Saturday are absolutely packed with lots of "party" atmosphere, especially in the lower loop. Roads are paved and sites are stone/gravel with plenty of room. Each site has a covered picnic table, grill, & fireplace. If the sites had sewer, this park would be a 10. Our rate reflects the Federal Senior Pass discount. We loved it and would return. We camped at Potters Creek Park COE in a Travel Trailer.

My husband, my German Shepherd, and I loved this park! We would have stayed longer except we did not know spring break would overlap our vacation time. Before the spring breakers arrived, the park was quiet and uncrowded. We enjoyed long walks along the lakefront without meeting up with anyone else. Our site was huge and backed onto a wooded area. Deer came by around dawn behind our RV. The park was convenient for us to take day trips to Fredericksburg and the many wineries in the area. We definitely want to return, perhaps a week earlier next time. There is so much to do in the area. We camped at Potters Creek Park COE in a Motorhome.

Very well run COE park. Large sites with extra room for your car. Everything worked and was in good shape. Enjoyed the deer that came by the camp every morning and evening. Would stay again. We camped at Potters Creek Park COE in a Motorhome.

This was a real find! The price shown includes a 50% discount for our interagency pass but does not include the $10 booking fee. The hosts could not have been nicer, keeping us apprised of the closing (for wildlife control) of parts of the park and accommodating a requested change in dates with no difficulty. Our site (42) was right by the lake with a spectacular view of sunsets and waterfowl. We were there shortly after New Year's and the hosts had kept the festive decorations in the immaculate washrooms. It was so homey! One thing to keep in mind is that onsite servicing is discouraged but can be negotiated in an emergency (as we found). There are many longterm campers here and stays can be extended if you provide enough warning time. We found that the park entrance 'gatekeepers' varied in temperament tremendously, one couple clearly being very accommodating and another person quite rigid. Negotiating success might depend on who is on duty. We camped at Potters Creek Park COE in a Motorhome.

Corps of Engineers parks are almost all great and this is no exception. We spent two nice weeks here over the Christmas holiday. The hosts in our loop were really good, decorating even the washrooms for the holidays. Part of the park was closed for a special deer herd thinning hunt by special permit so we did not use the whole park. The only minor problem was with Mother Nature. They sure do get some strong and lasting winds coming off the lake when weather fronts come through. Sure would come back again but like the rest of Texas, probably not in hot months.
