Great RV park. Airport is quiet at night. Close to the golf course. Convenient to town. Nice walking trails. Pull thru spots facing airstrip reasonably level. Cable works well so didn't need to use the dome for satellite reception. Rates are good but bring cash or your check book. We'll stay here again. We camped at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Lots of fun shopping in this German Heritage town. Great restaurants. Fun destination
We stayed in the "pecan orchard" part of the campground, not the upper portions near the airport runway. I am not sure there is a level site in this campground because it is constructed on a slope. Although the hookups were fine, the sewer connect was placed at an odd location, making connect nearly impossible. We used the dump station instead. A previous reviewer commented on the odd end-to-end pull through/back in sites, and it is peculiar. The design of the campground was developed by someone who knew little about RVs, and there is evidence the city has been attempting to retrofit. We were highly disappointed the pool was not yet opened (half way through June?). Part of the reason we chose this campground was because of the chance to cool off. Office staff friendly, efficient. Bath house was clean, but someone needed to take some time to clean the cobwebs from the ceiling. Looked like the stuff you hang out on Halloween. A mix of sun and shade, nice. Grassy lawn, with a few grass sticker spurs. Only two Digital TV stations on the antenna from San Antonio, you'll need the cable. C spire phone service was 4 bar 3G. Adjacent ball park practices and games were fun to watch. Nature center with extensive hiking trail system is about 1000 ft away. Speed limit at entrance to park is 70 MPH, so you have to be careful when exiting onto the highway. The LBJ home and Old Tunnel State Park bat watch were great stops for us. Fredericksburg shops were cute, friendly, and pricey. Farmers Market in the town square had some great fresh foods. Nearby laundromat across from the hospital was clean and good place to catch up on clothes. We camped at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park in a Travel Trailer.
A real nice city park. The sites near the office are a little close but very long. The sites in the Pecan Orchard down the hill are nice sized. Location is close to town. We would stay here again. We camped at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Your experience at this campground will depend on your rig & site! Read the past several reviews and you can tell all of these folks were in the large pull-throughs and not the butt-to-butt back-ins. The park puts rigs shorter than 35' into 1/2 of a 70' pull-through. So you back your rig up butt-to-butt with the rig behind you. You are literally 1 foot from the rig behind you when you get in "your" spot. To make matters worse, the hook-ups are in the middle on only one side. So one RV has the hook-ups on the correct (left) side and the other must run power & water under their rig, presuming they have a very long cord! Incredibly, some folks had pulled straight in and unhooked. Then another rig backs in front of them meaning the later rig must depart before the first rig can get their TV in to hook up. I've never seen such a poor set-up in my 90 campgrounds visited! Other than this ridiculous butt-to-butt parking, the CG is a 9 or 10. So I recommend you lie (yes lie) and tell them your rig is longer than 35' so you can get one of the nice pull-throughs or sit solo in one of the 70' pull-throughs. Oh, I almost forgot. The lady at check-in was berating someone on the phone who was complaining that their rig wouldn't fit in one of the back-ins. I watched several folks try to get in one of the back-ins only to give up and go somewhere else. Camp WiFi was slow but Verizon WiFi worked well.

Nice lady checking in and helpful. Next to airport, but it didn't bother us. Sites are OK. Large garbage cans at every other site. Showers/restrooms are old but clean. As stated in other reviews, if the toilet flushes, the shower flow goes away, but not for long. There are lots of stickers though so our little dogs were uncomfortable. But the town is a great German experience of food and chocolate! We highly recommend going to the National Museum of the Pacific War; awesome mix of video, audio, and real artifacts (planes, weapons, vehicles, subs). Must see.

Pretty, roomy sites. Bathroom and showers need serious updating - the shower handle has nearly corroded off. Someone flushed a toilet while I was in shower, and water flow dropped to a thin pencil, not enough to rinse a toothbrush. Planes are quite loud during day, but not at night. VERY quiet otherwise. I'd stay again, because of price. Showers are quite warm and roomy. I just disliked the corroded handle that worked oddly, and I really really hate the pressure problem. I'd just try to not go in peak season or peak usage times. We camped at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park in a Motorhome.

We were greeted by a friendly staff. Our site was easily assessable and level. The restrooms and showers were nice and clean. The $2.00 fee to enjoy the city pool was well worth it. Our site was next to the Airport runway and we enjoyed watching the small planes come and go. We highly recommend eating at the Airport diner. The campground is very close to town. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park in a Travel Trailer.
Huge grass lawns, adjacent to municipal airport where we were treated to vintage WWII aircraft taking off mid-day! Several playgrounds of different sizes, great pool, no mosquitos! Our campsite was easily accessed - as were all in the park. Staff was friendly and gave us good a great recommendation for places nearby to eat out. This park is in the hill country of Texas and we loved the area and this park. One of the highlights of our trip! We camped at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Level campsites on tar and gravel with grassy areas in front/behind each hilltop (premium) site. These premium sites overlook the airfield and Hangar Hotel. Staff was very courteous. All hookups/sewer/cable/electric worked very well. Internet had an additional charge but staff informed us that it didn't work very well and facility is looking to improve that service very soon. Lovely nature trail with 2 Geocaches in park. Beautiful bird feeding station and Butterfly feeding garden. Trash service was often and grounds were completely free of litter. Pet friendly staff gives pets a "welcome" dog biscuit. Park was very quiet with minimal campers. Staff did space people apart when so few campers are staying overnight, which is very appreciated. We viewed other campgrounds while in the area and were very pleased with choosing this one as it is the prettiest, quietest, and least expensive. Very convenient to site seeing with our Toad. Local law enforcement was visible driving through park several times a day. We will definitely stay here again very soon. I recommend visiting April or May for maximum wildflower viewing.

For a state park this is very nice. Obviously there are budget cuts so very little maintenance goes on. The hookups were a little dated and worn. One of my friends had to call out maintenance to make repairs so his electrical would work. Maintenance was there in a jiffy. The people that work here are really great; whatever you want that is OK with them. The restrooms and showers are very nice and clean. Have stayed here before and plan on going back again. I like the fact also there is a golf course in the park. Very friendly people there. We camped at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a county park three miles south of the village with 90 sites. Sites are close together with full hookups and cable. Wi-Fi is extra. It cost $30 and must be paid with cash or check. The park has a golf course, ball fields, a river that runs through it for fishing, picnic areas, dancing patio, and driving range. Park was very quiet and the staff was very friendly at check in. We went by a number of RV campgrounds driving west on 290 and I think this is the best one in the area. We camped at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park in a Motorhome.

The park itself is OK. It's quiet at night and overall clean. The Wi-Fi however, which you have to pay for separately, is a mere joke. I could hardly ever get a signal, even close to the restrooms where the antenna was placed. We camped at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park in a Truck Camper.

We are staying in this park for the month of Jan. and it's a great park. Its clean, staff are friendly and are ready to answer any questions. Its built in a pecan grove & most of the trees are very tall and there's pecans everywhere. Our rig is 40' long & they put us on 2 sites that are back to back, but only charged us for 1 site. We would definitely return to this park. We camped at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a pretty basic park, however, it was good value for the two nights we were there. The Wi-Fi was through an outside carrier. The service was easy to hook up to ($4/night). The pads are gravel and weren't that flat. The camp is about 3 miles South of town. We camped at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park in a Motorhome.
