2 Parks near Columbus, Texas
Apr 2015 - $3.00
Our first stay at a Thousand Trail campground and we couldn't be more pleased. I love the fact that they let you pick your site on what's available at the time and we found a great site looking over the Colorado River. It was 50 amp service so that's why we had to pay the extra $3.00 nite. We were told we wouldn't get TV reception off our antenna at this site but that wasn't the case. The TV worked great. AT&T wasn't good here but our Verizon MiFi was. We had strong 4G cell reception. The grounds are large and look to be well maintained. The roads inside the park could use some work. Would definitely come back again. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. - smitty12

Heading west through Texas and decided to take a week long breather here.
Check in was smooth and easy, very friendly ranger. Found our spot and set up.
Guess it's off season here, plenty of spots to choose from. We chose one that was near some friends who had rerouted to meet up with us.
Quite a large campground with a decent amount of space between campers. Many full hook up options, $3 upcharge for 50 amp. Bathrooms are clean, as is the laundry room and the activity center.
They have a small pool, and a large mini golf, basketball court and a unfenced pickleball court. There are also 2 ponds on the property.
There are still a few activities offered.
Large grassy fields. Some a bit overgrown, but found out that was intentional. The local deer and having their little one and the fawns hide out in the grass. We were also lucky enough to see a bobcat while here.
We attempted to take their 2 mile hike around the park, but could not find the trails as it has overgrown.
Propane is also available here.
We camped here in a 40' class A. - Kgtraveler

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

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
