Have stayed here a few times in the past, it's become kind of one of our go to places to get a way for a few days. This was the first time we had a site on the Colorado Rivers edge, and the term edge is just that. It was a 15' drop straight down to the water behind our RV. Maybe not what a family with small children would wish for, but for us it was nice. No worries of snakes coming out of the water to the RV, but enjoyed the sound of the river flowing down stream behind us.
The park was almost full of full hook up sites, but all utilities were clean and steady as one would expect. Park Staff friendly, attentive all around excellent. Well be back again without a doubt, and soon I hope.
The Putt Putt Golf Course has very recently been re-carpeted. Roads could still use a little work, but then so could most city streets. $3 rate based on TT membership of free with an up charge for 50amp service. - jonrjen
Rate is a Passport America Rate. Phoned ahead and made reservation. Charged $21. Upon arrival, told 50amp service would be another $3. Certainly not the $3 bucks, but it would have been nice to have been told this at the time of reservation. We spent only one night here. Placed in the "A" area which was LOADED with Sandspurs and I mean LOADED. There were also an abundance of active fire ant mounds. I assume the nice area is for actual thousand trail/encore members. The basket ball and tennis courts appeared run down. Park staff was friendly but we would never stay here again mainly due to the sandspurs and ants. - justkreuzin
This campground is just outside Columbus, TX a few minutes drive north of I-10. If you are looking for a quiet, pastoral campground this is it. Really, it’s hard to believe that the hustle and bustle of the interstate is only 10 minutes away. The grounds are fairly wide open with a several oak and pecan trees that provide some nice shade. We liked the fact that the property was all mowed and not overgrown. There are two RV areas. Section A is closest to the entrance and near the small pool and hot tub. The pool isn’t heated but the hot tub is inside a small building. Sections C and D are closer to the river and also have a nice playground. You can see the river only from a few sites and river access is via a small, and little used, boat ramp at the corner of the campground. The campground offers a wide variety of RV site options ranging from water/electric only to full hookup/50 amp sites. You’ll want to pay attention to the campground map as you select your site because the site across the road or even right next to the one you are looking like may offer different amenities: 50 or 30 amp, no sewer hookup, etc. I think the only two pull through sites are water/electric only. The roads in the campground are in poor repair and for some reason this year the area is suffering a bumper crop of grass stickers. There’s no telling how many of them we picked out of our camper’s carpet! We enjoyed hearing the coyotes and watching armadillos and many deer. The campground has a “no feeding” policy so while the deer aren’t especially afraid of people they do want to keep their distance. We also took advantage of the many pecan trees, picking up pecans for future use. - nazpaz
We only stayed here one night but it was a nice stay. The roads are dirt but were easy to navigate. The manager was friendly. They are very dog focused! Got dog bones at check in. Sites in back are grass but very open for satellite service. The ones in front get cable. It has wifi but we didn't use it. We would stay here again as a pass-through camp. - Travelin Chic
This is park is old and shows its age but is still a nice one. Sites are mostly shady with gravel or grass slips with one paved site they gave us. It is off the highway about ¼ mile so is quiet. There are many permanents/log term and while most are very old trailers, they are clean and residents respectful. Utilities including WIFI and cable worked well. I looked in on the shower/restroom facilities; they are old but looked clean enough. The owner was friendly and showed us to our spot. So if you want a clean, quiet place to stop for the night and don't need fancy, this is a fine place that I would use again if in the area - utchaps
Easy on and off I-10. Staff was great, sites grass but level. Hook ups well placed. Hard pack dirt interior roads and exit needs smoothed out. Very rough exit road with many ruts. Large sites easily fit big rigs. - sballey
