Good little park to stay at. It would definitely be on your list if you had young children - they would love all the sights regarding dinasours. We only stayed here for 2 nights midweek and were kind of mystified as to why we were given the site we got. First of all, it was pretty had to get into with our 32 foot RV, as it was not angled at all - straight in with no ability to use space across to maneuver. This was really odd when there were so many sites that were vacant the entire 2 days we were here - closer to the river and easier to get into. The trails were pretty good - but signage was somewhat lacking (green paint on rocks instead). Had to cross the river on foot (no bridge) and perhaps this is easier when water is lower, but made it a bit difficult to walk after having totally soaked feet. Luckily we had wet shoes and changed - but others we met didn't. Very pretty and very interesting place, all in all. Loved the stone fire pits - awesome! - Scotty 5154

This is the most quiet campground I've ever stayed in. The weather was unusually warm for January and the campground was completely full. At 8pm both nights, I walked my dogs and could not heard a sound - no traffic noise in the distance, no noisy neighbors, no airplanes overhead - just peaceful quiet.
Plenty of maneuvering space for my 40ft 5th wheel (all sites are back in). My site was smooth and level. Several small parking lots to park your tow vehicle or toad. Sidewalks through the trees to the restroom/ shower building so you don't have to walk all the way around the loop if you prefer.
VERY clean restrooms, showers, dump station, and no litter seen anywhere.
MANY very nice walking, biking, hiking trails. I didn't visit the campground store.
Courteous and professional park employees. - 2bearbill

This is a great park. The sites are level, with good shade and large enough for big rigs. I think all the sites are back-in. Water and electric are available. There is a dump station, but no sewer at the sites themselves. My site was fairly open but other sites have very good privacy. The campground was about half full on a weekday and very quiet. The restrooms and showers were very clean. - Teardrop11

Gorgeous park with great facilities. Bathrooms are spacious and clean. Sites are spacious and pull-through. Management and staff were courteous. Great location for seeing some small town Texas. Pool is awesome. - lukqbwr4

Could be a really nice park. However, please understand. This is a family campground! Do not expect peace and quiet. Kids running through yards even after "quiet" hours. Loud beer parties while kids run unsupervised. No one picks up their dog poop. Generators ran around the clock in the dry camping area! For the most part the staff was VERY accomodating, however, there are several who have attitudes and forget who affords them this "job". No cable and TV reception is sketchy because Glen Rose is down in a hole. Lots of work being done on the park, they are working to improve it. However, that equates to lots of noise even on the weekends, so no real break from that. They do have a nice fenced area for dogs, but one of the workers uses it for their personal dog pen, so good luck finding it empty. Utilities do work well, water pressure is high. Restrooms are very clean, but could use a little sprucing up. Not sure I would stay here again. There is just not much to choose from in the area. - 2ndtimearound

We have stayed at Tres Rios 3 x's this year. And have loved every stay. The front campsites are for public month leases, the middle and back sites are for members if the ocean canyon properties. They allow Coast 2 Coast members to stay twice a year. Lots has been written in the reviews about their amenities, so I won't expound on that. Is a comfortable and homey resort. We love the beauty there and walking paths, nice people, nice laundry, playground, etc. We would stay there again but have met our limit for the year. - Susiecamera

Clean, quiet, large, grassed pull thru spaces. I was able to park my 40' Class A with an 18' trailer attached in space and still had room in the front to park a vehicle. Picnic table, gravel-packed roads, well-maintained. I observed maintenance crews out weeding campsites. Laundry available with a workout room. Large game room with pool tables, kitchen area, bathroom and TV area with restriction to 18 years and older. Office staff are very friendly and efficient during check in. I stayed under Coast-to-Coast affiliation so can't speak to per night rates for public camping.
Close access to local amenities and Ft. Worth or Dallas.
I would stay here again. - kihei7

Beautiful park with many lovely stone structures in a gorgeous setting on the bluff that overlooks the merge of three rivers (Brazos, Paluxy and Squaw Creek). There is direct access to the river and fishing, boating/tubing/rafting. Miles of walking and biking trails, a swimming pool, rec hall with pool tables, TV area, kitchen and card games, and five washers and dryers ($1.25) in the laundry room. Playgrounds and a children's rec hall with activities, even in the winter. There is a beautiful dining room/ restaurant that could handle 300 plus for a private function. (Except for private functions, the restaurant is only open in the summer time.) They have large and small cabins for family reunions and weddings.
Roads are paved. Sites are level grass/dirt and were in perfect condition when we were there, but my husband prefers gravel or concrete for when it rains. Most sites are spacious, have a picnic table and at least one mature pine or pecan tree that is very tall (not a lot of ground shade.) No cable but Wi-Fi signal is strong.
This is a gated, private membership park (with some affiliation with Coast -to-Coast Resorts) that does allow some non-members when space allows. We received our invitation with our purchase of a motorhome and really enjoyed our visit. Our saleslady, Janna, was charming and efficient, gave us a wonderful tour, and answered all our questions. We did not purchase a membership because we are not full-timers and spend most of our RV time in the parts of New England and Canada where there are no member resorts. (They do have resorts in Canada and New England - just not where we have friends or relatives.) We met folks who were members and full time RVers who rotate thru the member parks, save money and schedule their favorite sites (and seasonal activities) months in advance. They mentioned they love the staff and activities at the different resorts. - Mom_of_Two

We camped in a pull through site that was adequate for our 36' motorhome. The site was a bit short to leave the towed vehicle hooked up overnight. Hookups worked well and were well placed. Site was almost level. Sites are gravel. There is a grassy area with lots of pine trees that is good for walking the dog. Most of the residents appear to be long term residents. The park served our purposes well. We would stay again. - jdstevens

I'm not exactly positive about the rate, but I'm within a few dollars. The owners were so nice. They loaned us a smoker and utensils to use for our meat. It was quiet and the water was hot the next morning for my shower! - pamclem

This is a very nice park and the name says it. It is midway between two towns and is in a pine forest that was planted by a government agency along time ago. As an experiment? This park is outside of Granbury, right on the highway: there is no traffic after 10pm but it starts up at 5am. We went into the town of Granbury to do some shopping, there are lots of places to get anything you might need. The weather did not co-operate with us on this trip. It was cold and raining and did not let up. We ended our trip early. We enjoyed our short stay. We will go back and stay here again. - Mawmawof10

This is a good state park and is well maintained. However, I limit my rating as several of the Premium sites are not good. We camped in site 57 which was a scenic site on the water but the pad was on such an angle we could not level the motorhome. Finally went to Wal-Mart and bought 6 pavers to put under the rear jacks in order to level (the rear tires were about 6" off the ground on both sides). Site 58 across from us was the same as far as unlevel. In addition the sewer connection was some distance from the pad and uphill ??? Not sure who laid this campground out but it was not a 'camper'. WiFi in the bath house didn't work most of the time and when it did it was a weak signal. Phone reception was poor and trees prevented sat reception. North Creek campground (no sewer) was better.... I would not recommend this park nor will I stay here again. - MovinOnDownTheRoad

Stayed here for a week. Full hookups all taken on a busy weekend. Stayed in Keyhole site #30. No problem getting sat reception. Easy check-in as a drive up with no reservations. Site was w/e only. Good placement of services. Sewer site services placed in easy to access. Will stay here again. Stayed in Cleburne SP in a motorhome. - mdmnkcm

We stayed here to attend the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth. Our campsite was incredible! It backed right up to the lake, and was huge. We are going to make a return trip in warmer weather. The full hookups were easily accessible and appeared to be recently updated. - Major Dad

Park was clean, friendly owners and very helpful. Average to primitive. We would stay here again overnight. - jlawson34

They must have named this park E-Z Duzit for the road out in front. You must take it E-Z. We enjoyed this park very much the owners were very nice. There was a group of class A motorist that were traveling together that pulled in just after us. And the park was full. We were envious of the class A's they just push a button and they were level. We had a wonderful view of the countryside.The highway is down the hill and we heard NO noise after 10pm. We will stay here again. Enjoyed the Cafe the Koffee Kup in Hico. It is very good 12 different pies. Donuts that were like small tires on a shopping cart. Good food and nice people in all places that we stopped. Give it a try. - Mawmawof10
Nov 2008 - $18.00
Nightly rate reflects TACO discount, otherwise $20 a night. Quaint, "in the country" feeling Mom-and-Pop operation with a friendly owner. Clean, bare-bones, older park with level gravel/grass sites; W/E on side, sewer at rear. VERY, VERY ROUGH road getting to the park, at the park office and into the park -owner escorts to site. Laundry is one washer & one dryer, but they are clean and work! 2 bar cell reception, over the air TV (HDTV) good, wireless excellent. Some road noise, but quiet at night. Suggest you call the owner to let her know you are coming, as the office does not seem to keep "regular" hours. We were the only ones in the park so it was very open although if full, it may be crowded since some sites are close to one another. Owner-provided directions to get here may seem confusing but the park is relatively easy to find IF you keep your eyes open. Even with all the negatives listed, I prefer to stay in this type of park rather than a resort-style RV park with cable/Wi-Fi, sparkling showers and 300 rigs packed like sardines next to one another. I would not make this a destination, but if in the area, I would return. - Mike E

Small state park in need of some funding. Free WiFi but it was slow. Good reception for Verizon. Have stayed there before and will again. - rockhill

A smaller State Park on a small lake contained entirely within the Park. The Park has a very nice fishing pier and a good many hiking trails that are well marked. The full-service campsites are all pull-through and very close together. The Park has Park Police who were often visible. Camp Hosts clean each campsite after folks leave to include the firepits. A lovely Texas State Park. - Jim Butler

Beautiful location with a no-wake lake. At the top of the Hill Country, the views are fantastic. After a rain, the water runs over the limestone ledges.
You won't find a more friendly or helpful staff anywhere! - Dis466

GPS led us to the camping store on a super busy highway instead of to the rv park behind the store so check out the directions before you are committed to the small store parking lot. RV park was a little tight for big rig. Very little space between sites. Picnic table is situated at the back of your rig. Not a destination park, but good while exploring the Granbury area. - mhollis1

Been a few years since we stayed at Bennett's. Park has REALLY gone downhill. One good thing, they took the huge boulders out that restricted maneuvering! Sites are very unlevel and many have drop offs at doorway. Trees are dying even though the sprinklers run 24 hours per day albeit they are on stations, they rotate and run around the clock. You just have to "plan" when you want to sit outside or cook, AROUND THE SPRINKLERS ARE RUNNING!! Our site was a muddy mess. Too bad they don't have any competition!! Most likely we will not stay there again. - Retiredandlovinit

Campground is very crowded as far as close quarters are concerned. If you have an awning it probably will be in your neighbors yard. Nothing much to offer in amenities, except the RV store. When arriving look for the store on 377 to check in, or you'll have to walk a block to the office. Lot of traffic noise when outside, no problem in coach. Internet connection is via a wire that you have to route through a window, but works well. 35 dollars is WAY too much money for what this park has to offer, but it is the only decent camp in the area. Staff very friendly and helpful. We stayed a week. We'd stay here again, if visiting Granbury. - Darfantin

Ok for over night stay. Gravel sites that are not level is the biggest draw-back to the park. Both front wheels of the 40' Class A motor home were off the ground by 6" in order to be level. Had to drop the wheels down to touch the ground, thus leaving us not level for the night. Staff very friendly and polite. Easy in and out. These unlevel sites were all in the 50 amp sites. The 30 amp sites appeared to be more level. Wi-Fi was free but at times slow. - Eduardo

Very convenient to Fossil Rim attraction. Dated but adequate. We used 30 amp power, but 50 amp was available at a higher rate. - Behrs

We stayed 2 nights at Kimball Bend Park COE in March 2015 in site 31. All 35 sites have water and 50/30/20 electric and covered picnic tables. Several sites on the Brazos river, but those sites have no shade. The interior sites have good shade from giant, old pecans. Best sites for afternoon shade: 14, 10, 7. Site 34 has fair shade and a great view of the river. Site 31 is the most private site in the park with great view of the Brazos River. Family friendly park. Lots of kids. Some ruins from the old Chisolm trail in the campground. Popular park for fishermen. Boat ramp in the park. Closest grocery and Walmart in Cleburne 20 miles away. We would stay here again. - drfife
