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. We camped at Colorado River Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

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.

Big thing to watch for in sites in A section is goat's head stickers. Like many TTN Parks the roads are not being kept up. Road leading to gatehouse was pretty dusty. AT&T cell works with LTE signal. Staff friendly and helpful. Many deer roaming the area at this time of year. We camped at Colorado River Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.Undo

Price shown is for TT Member with 50 amp service. The park hasn't changed much over the last year. It has nice large site offerings, gravel sites many of which do offer a clear view for DirectTV reception. However not all sites do offer a clear view of the sky so if you need it check closely. Good electrical service, good water pressure. Plenty of green grass and small deer feeding on it around the TT Preserve. Did not use the shower/bath facilities so I can't comment on those. Park Rangers were very helpful when needed. Park does show to have internet, but it is only available in the club house and is slow as a snails pace, or slower. Park is located a few miles out of town, but close enough to be there in a few minutes drive time. Roads are rough in places due to recent heavy rains, but are very drivable without problems. We enjoyed 6 very peaceful quiet nights. We camped at Colorado River Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We loved this park. It's everything we always hope our next campground will be like. The sites are huge, level, and everything just about perfect. The only negative is that there wasn't more water in the river. However, that certainly is nothing they can control. Love this place!! We camped at Colorado River Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.Undo

Sites are spacious in loops C and D but a little less so in loop A. Roads are rough but passable. The water is safe but has an odor. The fishing on the river is phenomenal if you have a boat or kayak, but still good from the bank. The park is quiet and peaceful with a large herd of 10-30 deer that wander through. The mini golf course is worn and needs attention. We love this park for the setting and fishing. It is more like a wide open state park in the size of the sites than a private campground. The staff are friendly and helpful. The park is kid and pet friendly with a small playground but lots of running room. We will definitely be back when we are in the area. We stayed as a part of the Thousand Trails program so the cost was actually $0 We camped at Colorado River Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.Undo

TTN rate for 50 AMP. Staff here was incredible. D section sets on the crumbling river bank well above the Colorado River. Views are awesome, but you put yourself at risk to try to climb down the bank to the river. We set up in A section with great sites, set well apart, and definitely not cramped together. Restrooms and showers are clean and functional. Laundry room clean. CG is quiet. Our Wi-Fi cards and cell phones worked well. Deer are visible but they stay away from campers and feeding isn't allowed. Boat ramp down to the river was muddy and very slick. No one had launched there in quite a long time. This is a very nice CG and we would definitely stop here again. We camped at Colorado River Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

The park is absolutely beautiful. There are deer wandering around everywhere. The Colorado river runs along the lower campground. There are lots of beautiful sites but I'm not sure who qualifies to use them. The lower campground was closed due to potential flooding. We were put in the A loop which we hated, as most of the sites were crammed together and had no privacy. I would go back again if I could stay in the lower campground.

Very nice park, well maintained, big rig friendly. Gracious host with lots of information. Excellent BBQ on Friday nights at Peter's in Ellinger. Heated pool and indoor spa. Would be a 10 but only outdoor showers at the pool/spa and water never heated up. Lots of room between sites. Would return again. We had a 50amp FHU site on the river. Verizon and AT&T 4bars/3/4g Rate reflects member rate. We camped at Colorado River Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.Undo

Rate reflects Passport America discount and $3 surcharge for 50 amp service. Roads badly in need of repaving. Ranger was helpful & pleasant. Pool was recently redone. Hot tub is inside. Pool/hot tub area are a fair distance from the campground. Bathrooms need updating. We would stay overnight again. We camped at Colorado River Thousand Trails in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Our rate was only $3 because we are Thousand Trails members and paid the extra for 50 amps service. This park has nice large sites like a state or federal park and has deer roaming everywhere! The staff is nice but TT keeps cutting back on staff/hours (according to one of the staff) and it is starting to show. While there are great facilities like pool/hot tub/mini golf, they are looking tired. We camped at Colorado River Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.Undo

Much like the many great 1000 Trails preserves of yesteryear . . . fairly simple, well groomed, not TOO many leased sites (like so many other 1000 Trails parks are now!). Seems to be pretty good member-generated gatherings, assisted by a good park manager. Other staff members are good, too. We camped at Colorado River Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.Undo

I'm a Thousand Trails member, this park is very nice with large sites. It is a typical thousand trails park. My only complaint is as a member I don't feel I should have to pay extra for a premium site. We camped at Colorado River Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.Undo

The roads are really bad. The access road of gravel and sand creates terrible dust that gets into every crack and covers the towed vehicle. Inside the park there are potholes everywhere. However, once into the park, the sites are pretty and level. This is a membership park that has some sites open to the public. We camped at Colorado River Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.Undo

We stayed 3 days at this TT park, which has major potential. Like many parks in the TT network, it is a little 'tired' looking. The main road through the preserve needs major repair, the preserve includes so much land that keeping it all mowed is a challenge. The Wi-Fi is in the clubhouse only, and is weak. And the buildings could use a facelift. That said, the preserve is huge, the sites are separated into river sites, lower sites, and hill sites. Sites are gravel, level, and wide. Hookups worked well. There are large trees that provide shade on many of the sites. Over air and satellite service is available from the sites on the hill. The pool just opened and was clean. There is a miniature golf putting area and a boat dock. Numerous deer roamed the preserve daily. This is one of our favorite campgrounds in the TT network due to the open, spacious feel of the preserve. The $3 per day charge was for 50 amp service with a TT membership.
