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. We camped at Leisure Camp & RV Park in a Motorhome.
I am basing this review for traveling with children. Normally this is not the type of camping I like however with grandkids this is a great place. The park is kid friendly with two playgrounds depending on age. The river is great for beginners to float. You can walk to the far end of the park and float back in about 25 minutes. The campsites are close together and some are tight to back into. Its pricey but we will bring our grandkids back again, We camped at Leisure Camp & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a campground that offers full hook-ups, 30 and 50 amp with good river access (San Marcos River). In addition, they have cabins for rent and tent sites, if that's your thing. They have showers, for $.25 cent and have toilets, four of them actually, which considering how busy this place gets on a summer weekend, is about 6 short of what they really need. This campground is very pleasing to the eye and not much has changed since I first camped here 20 years ago. The sites are extremely narrow and you feel like you are invading your neighbors space. Over the years our family has grown and so has our camper. When we were traveling in a 26 footer the space size wasn't much of a problem. Now that we have upgraded to a larger 5er, with slides...much more of an issue. Once you pull into your site, not only should you check to see where your electric, water, sewage hook-ups are located but you must check to see if your awning and slide-outs can fit in between your neighbors. It reminds me of camping in Yellowstone, if you've ever been lucky enough to camp inside that National Park. This place, like Yellowstone is very pretty and also like Yellowstone, its very tight camping. Additional information is they offer tube transports, have a pool (can get very crowded), and have a little sack shop that offers small items and finger food. We found, and always have found, the management team here to be very accommodating and generally very good. Keep in mind that this is a very popular park and you will be competing with other campers who camp here every year and consequently set up their camping reservations a year in advance. You can usually get a spot within a week or so before your stay but, you won't get one of the "chosen" ones. I feel that I should also note that they charge an additional fee for both additional car and campers. I towed my 5er and my wife and kids, each brought a friend, followed me in the wife's Expedition. We were charged $10 extra each day for the additional car, never-mind that we were able to park the extra car "on site" and caused no additional space. And each campsite fed is based on 2 people. Huh? Most campgrounds allow at least 4. Any more than 2 per campsite is charged an additional $5 per person, per night. I think this is a little sneaky way of them gaining from us an additional $90 for a weekend stay. We camped at Leisure Camp & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park with lots of river frontage. Playground for kids with a plain but free putt-putt course. Nice dog run and a small, but clean swimming pool. Had full hookups on a pull-through site. There are cabins close to camp sites so extended family can visit. Management was very nice and led us to our site. Will be staying here again next year. Would have given park a 10 except it's a little tight getting into and out of some of the sites. We camped at Leisure Camp & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground. Enjoyed our stay. Variety of different sites, some with full concrete pads, pull throughs are gravel and some back in grass sites. Utilities worked fine. Charcoal grills and fire pits at every site, which I thought was nice and used them both. Did not try to use cell phones or internet. River was clean and surprising pretty warm for this time of year. Big dog run, beautiful pool area, and other amenities. Lots of wildlife in the area. We got to watch numerous skydivers jump from the plane from our campsite, which was pretty cool. Only reason I gave it a 9 was because of having to back up a ways in order to pull into our site. We will be back and have already booked our next stay. We camped at Leisure Camp & RV Park in a Motorhome.
This is the 3rd and final time at this park. Now run by a management company (?). I really liked the way it was run before: they use to care. Now it's just another notch in a corporate belt. Stayed with them last year and early part of this year. WOW. Now would keep on driving. We camped at Leisure Camp & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Had a great time, as always, at Leisure Resort! This was our fourth visit in three years, and we're continuously impressed! The new manager was great - very personable, friendly, and attentive. Since the San Marcos River is spring-fed, we didn't have to worry about the low water levels like the Guadalupe. Had a really fun time, and can't wait to return in October.

We had a great time at Leisure Resort! We didn't encounter any rude staff during our stay. In fact, it was quite the opposite! The new manager was very friendly and helped us with directions to Luling. We did hear that the park is under a new management company, and it's really never looked better! We've stayed here before and will continue to come back. The best days are ahead of Leisure Resort! We camped at Leisure Camp & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Leisure Resort for the month of April since it was too early to head north. What a treat. It was so relaxing. The red birds and hummingbirds were abundant. It's right on the San Marcos River. Everyone was so friendly. We did not stay in one of the cabins, but looked in them. They are the best cabins and cottages I have seen at a campground.

We've stayed at Leisure Resort a few times and really enjoyed our time there. We heard it was under management and wanted to see what it was all about. Needless to say, we were very impressed! The new manager was extremely helpful and pleasant. You could tell the park has a commitment to the guest experience, as the activities were well organized and the park was very clean! Keep up the great work, we will be back! We camped at Leisure Camp & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a very nice park next to the San Marcos River. It was relatively empty except for regulars. The site was level. The bathroom was clean. It was very quiet and pretty. The girl in the office wasn't overly friendly, but she wasn't rude. I would stay here again. We camped at Leisure Camp & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We've heard a lot about this park and we won't be back. People were nice enough, but the park is just a mess. Wife commented on the bathrooms being filthy and ancient. It was raining while we were there, the roads looked more like lakes rather than roads. Lots of big ruts. I drive a 4x4 rig and didn't want to chance it, it was that bad.

Our stay was not at all enjoyable due to repeated power failures for three days. Then: the park personal were rude, one had to take garbage outside of the park to dump, and the advertised free Wi-Fi on their website, was in truth only available in, or very near the office and had no power service unless they would let you into the office. We camped at Leisure Camp & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
The park grounds are extremely enjoyable. The river great. The pool was nice, although a bit small for the number of people visiting that weekend. For a small family, driving one vehicle, I would recommend it. Other than that, think twice due to the "nickel-and-dime" that this park does. The base rate assumes 2 people per RV. There is an additional $5 per person over 2 people. In addition, we had friends visit. They were charged another $6 per person for day use passes. When we decided they should spend the night, we were told they would have to pay an additional "extra vehicle" fee of $10. I told the night guard I would settle up as I left at the end of the weekend. I was then approached 4 more times in one day about the extra $10 fee. As for the pull-thru sites... They were long, which was nice. Our 32ft, plus pull truck, plus visitors car all fit in the pad, with room to spare. They had some trees, which provided some shade. Some of the trees still need some time to grow, however. The pull-thrus are very close, however. There weren't many RVs there when we were, but if there were, we would have been right up against them. The grass medium between pads was hardly big enough for the small picnic table that is provided. And even then, the neighbors electric and hoses are in your "yard". The electric was a problem, too. We have a brand new RV, which we take out every weekend. We have learned what can be run at the same time without breaker issues (amp issues), so we are careful. Within 30 minutes of arriving, we blew the parks breaker for the first time. This repeated many times over the next hour even though we had turned EVERYTHING off except for the air conditioner. Finally, we switched to a different sites electric (since they were so close). This worked for a few hours, then the whole thing started again. In the end, it turned out that their electric couldn't handle us having the A/C and electric water heater at the same time. We switched to LP water heater and the rest of the weekend went find. Also.. It appears that they have handled their previous Internet connection issues. I had no problems at all with connectivity. It was fast. The pool, as I said, was nice. They also have a sand volleyball, thetherball, mini-golf and small park. The park is not very toddler friendly, however, only having one small slide and 3 swings for toddlers.
