34 Parks near Fentress, Texas
Aug 2016 - $60.00
This park has the potential to be great. The problem is with their insistence to cram people, RVs, and vehicles on every inch of space they have and the never ending revolving door day use that the park allows. They allow way too many people and cars into the park on the weekends, I know this is a huge cash cow for them, but it is beyond too-crowded. People and cars everywhere. And they are obviously not re-investing the abundance of day fees on fixing up and taking care of the park. The roads in and about the property are in horrible shape. The bath houses are deplorable...of course they are used by a thousand day people on busy days. The RV pedestals are a joke, the picnic tables are dilapidated, and the sites are so close to each other in some cases it is difficult to get full size RVs in and out, or awnings deployed. It rained several days during our trip, so we had to deal with mud puddles, muddy ruts and huge pot holes filled with water that did not drain, the entire time we were there, and there was a definite stench about the entire RV area. The tent-only camping area apparently has no limits either. At the area below my RV site, what appeared to be 3 tent sites, I counted 45 people, 2 dogs that barked constantly, and 9 vehicles.
This park is also nit-picky with their pricing. They charge for everything, extra kids, extra cars, showers, $14 per day per person to get shuttled one mile to the bridge, etc.
All that being said, the facility is filled with beautiful scenery and incredible access to the San Marcos River. The staff is very helpful, and friendly, and the full hookup sites in the premium area have level concrete RV pads. There is a nice pool that the kids enjoy, and they have a small store with some essentials and ice.
Although we still enjoy coming to this park and the river environment, the perfect time to use this facility would be Sunday night through Thursday night, and be on your way Friday AM before the weekend madness. - Tcamper

This was our second spring break here and it was a great time. There were many families here this year and the park was full. We find the park has many amenities to offer to a family from the two playgrounds, pool, tetherball, basketball court, sand volleyball, putt putt course (9 holes), hall and pavilion. That doesn't include the river! The best value, in my opinion are sites 14-28, these are the back in sites. They have concrete pads that are level and are quite spacious plus there are many huge pecan trees that provide a lot of shade. The pull through sites are tight and not all are paved. The roads in the park are in rough condition too due to previous flooding. The park is clean and the workampers did a great job of running the park. The hall wasn't used and didn't appear to be opened/available. There was no trash service, you have to take your trash to the dumpster just outside the park entrance. The wifi was spotty at our spot, 95. It would come and go on the smartphones but it worked great on the macbook (not sure why...). Overall this is a great park filled with a ton of fun amenities. We would definitely stay here again. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. - DVCard85

A hidden gem on the San Marcos River. Centrally located for access to shopping in San Marcos or BBQ in Lockhart. Tall pecan trees provide plenty of shade. Swim beach separate from fishing area. Playground, pavilion, concrete or gravel pads, swimming pool, etc. Big rig friendly. Large fenced pet run with green grass. Quiet and relaxing location in the country. We pulled in for an overnight stay and didn't want to leave. - Ginger Brown

We stayed there a few months while we were on a job. Rate is based on monthly. This a small park that is great for workers or anyone that doesn't need all the extras that the resorts offer. It is a clean park and the owners are on site. We would stay again. - BJ&ME

Arrived on a Saturday with a reservation and told to go to the campground, find a site and return before 6 PM to complete the registration. Very nice campsites with plenty of room. Good 50 amp electric and water pressure however, at times the pressure went down to nothing for a short time. Happened when my wife was taking her shower and that ain't good. Verizon cell service is pretty much non existent most of the time. Our Jetpack got 1 bar of 4g but on our Sleek the signal increased to 3 bars. There is no WiFi out here.We didn't use the facilities but when I looked there were clean but a little dated. In site 10 we were able to get a DTV signal with no problem. The town of Lockhart is all about barbecue. We went to Keuz Market and the brisket was excellent but we found the port ribs to be a little dry. We didn't like their potato salad at all. Next time we'll go to Black's. - StarlifterFE

This place is on a golf course, and I see why it is desirable to live on a gold course. All of the grass is mowed to be pretty and pleasant. No fire ants.
Only 20 sites at the state park. 10 are very nice with asphalt driveways, 50 amp, sewer, but also - each site had a SMOKER and a fire ring and a paved picnic area with shelter.
We had already gone shopping, but went back to walmart to get some stuff to grill!
They had no security lights, which meant that at night you could see every. single. star. Beautiful.
The downside is -
Campsites are a long walk to the playground and guard shack.
Spotty cell service. We were able to get messages on and off. Mostly nothing.
A little wifi at the main office. - mmette00

It's a beautiful, well-maintained state park with a swimming pool, public 9-hole golf course, and small campground. There are 10-sites with full hookup and 10-sites with water and electric. It was very quiet there and we saw many deer and wild turkeys wandering across the fairway in front of our camp site. The nightly rate of $21 does not include a $3/day per person state park entry fee. Still a great price at $27/day for a FHU site. - CNRUSA

They do not allow children, which for the majority of people means they don't want you. They are almost always full, because of their cheap monthly price (which is why I listed 10 a night). They have no bathrooms, no showers, no laundry, and very short inconvenient office hours. They have no website, which is weird in 2015, so good luck getting their number. - Swift_Strongarm

When we came to this part of Texas for a job. This was a very reasonable place. Good place for workers that have self contained RV's since they don't have restrooms or showers. Very nice people and next door to the Three Dudes Winery. Less than 2 miles outside of town. The rate I gave was monthly and we would stay again. - BJ&ME

Our welcome at this park was friendly and efficient. We thought we had a "riverside" site, but between us and the river was a huge open field in the process of being cleared and graded - perhaps more sites. The heated pool and above ground hot tub are indeed here; but suffer, like the showers and other parts of this park, from age and many years of use. Deferred maintenance is a great description of the shortcomings here. We would not plan to return. - Vic and Marsha

We had reserved two premium pull through sites. They put us in two back in sites.
We requested two pull through sites as we had already paid for when reserved. None were available, they put us at two sites that were on different ends of the campground.
During the move of our trailers to the sites, we saw a site, one over from mine was empty.
Went back to the office and requested that site, it was reserved. After discussing the other sites, suddenly we were informed the site we were now requesting was available due to a cancellation. That was great, but funny thing is, we were told no money back for cancellations, so why would someone cancel?
The group in the office was very disfunctional. Also no discounts at all, good sams, nothing. Only campground in the whole trip like that. Not worth $50.00 dollars a night. - John - Ga

Normal daily rate $50 is way too high for what you get. Passport America only works weekdays & is still $25 per night. Staff is friendly, but not quite familiar with their sites. It appears they use certain sites for daily raters and better sites for long termers, of which there are many. We were assigned site 330, which she described as a pull thru with open sky to the south for Dish signal. Not a pull thru. A pull into vs. back into. Very narrow, our 40' bus needed some maneuvering to get straight & not damage any of the hookups. And too many trees to get Dish signal. They have indoor pool but the hot tub needs you to jump through hoops to get access-gotta go upstairs & contact staff to get access. They have a small store, DVD's for borrowing, and propane available for delivery to your rig. Just an average RV park with extraordinarily high price. Be prepared to have self-appointed "traffic cops" jumping out waving arms telling you to slow down while driving through park, we got one crazy lady doing that as my wife idled out the driveway at warp-factor zero. - rvrrat520

Overnight stop easy off and on I-10. Office staff friendly and helpful. No cable or wifi. Short walk to creek/river the dogs loved it. Pool, volleyball and basketball areas. Would stay here again - SlicksMom

This campground have the basics which I need for overnight parking.
The restrooms and showers are not great but clean enough for using, the sides are gravel, grass on both sides and long enough for my motorhome.
The wifi doesn't work with my ipad on my site, they have a small pool and the campground is very quiet.
I wouldn't stay there for my holidays but for overnight parking it was OK.
AT&T provides me 2 bars LTE which wag good enough to using my smart phone as a hotspot. - Columbus

Excellent and friendly staff, great park just off I-10. We had a pull thru site that was level and convenient to the laundry, bath house and pool area. Will definitely stay here again. We enjoyed watching the horse and goats in the field and the short walk to the river. - Wingn1

Clean park but watch out for the extra charges, I did not know there was a deposit expected until I was already unpacked, and I did not know there was a 3% charge passed onto me for using a debit card; he prefers cash. The Wi-Fi only worked sometimes when I was there, but never fear, there is a McDonald's nearby. You could not walk 2 feet without getting stickers on your shoes, pants, or if you had flip flops that was dangerous walking across the grass. I didn't like the "find out as you go" rules, I never saw that rule about the 3% fee to use a debit card until I used one. I think this owner is new at the park thing and is not user friendly. So read all the rules before you check out, Oh and I never saw any creek water etc. while I was camped there. - tizwhizkid

We stayed here about a year and a half ago. Since then it's become a self-service park. We paid $40.00 for a gravel pull through. Unfortunately the site was not level, ended up with wheels off the ground on one side. Supposed to be free wifi. Still looking for it. Cable was adequate. I believe this place is over priced and will not be back. - cameocamper

This is a most interestingly-run park. It's self-service. There is nobody in the office (at least at any time during our 5-day stay) and a phone call gets an answering machine, although once a lady did answer. There is a box outside the office for you to take a form, fill it out, and put it with a check (no credit cards) in an envelope, then deposit it in a slit in the box. So if you don't have any questions or need help or recommendations for local restaurants, shops, hospitals, repair shops, etc. I guess that's fine.
There are also signs throughout the park and club house indicating there is a problem with theft and to lock up your belongings. While we were here, one man said his water regulator was stolen overnight. And signs in the restrooms say do not make a mess because there is nobody to clean the restrooms. Just a different kind of place.
The park itself is nice, several shade trees and wide sites. It's right on an Interstate hwy., but noise was not a problem inside the rig with our A/C running. Convenient location between San Marcos (Outlet Malls) and New Braunfels (Camping World). 50 amp electric service is sometimes questionable. - retired rover

Only accepts cash or a check, no discounts. We made reservation by phone a few days before and was directed to one of 3 possible open sites. We did show up in the evening, filled out an envelope w/ our details and site number, placed a check inside and dropped in a night drop box. We never saw anyone at the office, but during our stay, we did not need anything else. Nice older park with lots of shad trees and some shrubs for privacy. Interior roads are paved, most sites have a concrete pad under RV (w/ gravel ramps leading to and from pads) with a concrete patio and picnic table. Power and water were great. Even thought its between railroad tracks and the interstate - the noise was not a problem. We will be back and stay again when in the area. Thanks and safe travels!!! - KenTravels

I enjoyed the golf course and the area very much. there were alot of things to do in the nearby towns.
The office staff was very nice. It has Pull through sites and 50 amp service. There was supposed to be WIFI but we couldn't figure it out. There was a swimming pool which was nice in the heat.
The spots were gravel with Lots of big trees giving you a lot of shade. The roads were paved around the campgrounds but there are a ton of pot holes so you have to be very careful. - houseofclarkes

I paid monthly and stayed for three months. The location and monthly price was a good value (which is why I listed 14 a night). The people who ran the park were very nice and courteous. The pool was out of order, and the wifi barely reached more than 10 feet from the main office. The park looked very trashy, because they did not require people to maintain their lots. I never used the bathrooms, but I am willing to bet they probably weren't that good judging from the appearance of the rest of the park. On the plus side they don't care about trailer age, trailer appearance, families, retirees, etc. All are welcome. If you aren't too superficial this park isn't half bad. - Swift_Strongarm

Stayed here one night. Check-in went fine once the reservation was found and clerk figured out we were not staying for a month. Our drive through spot was easy to find/get into. The CG has MANY full time in a myriad of rigs and their outdoor decorations, stuff or just plain junk greatly distracts from this CG. The roads are narrow, rough and curvy which made negotiating our 40' rig with towed, very difficult. Rate reflects the Passport America discount; this is not a $40 a night CG. I would not stay here again. - Monaco Bob
