8 Parks near Gonzales, Texas
Oct 2016 - $32.00
The staff is friendly and the park is clean/quiet. The internal roads are tight and very little artificial lights in the area. So if you arrive at night keep a sharp eye out for the big trees next to the roadways. If your looking for a nice place to lay low for a few days, you might want to check this park out. - Pigcrib

Stayed three nights in early April with friends camping adjacent. Park was not full for a weekend, so was very quiet. This is a very nice park in the Guadalupe River bottom shaded with beautiful enormous Pecan trees. Access to the Guadalupe River for fishing. The Lake was drained for repairs to the dam to be completed later this year, but we were not planning to use the lake. Lots of birds in the trees. Very well maintained grassy areas. One spot on the loop road through the park was too narrow for our small RV, but no problem getting out the other direction. A small camp store with basic supplies and friendly staff during check-in. - Texas E-S

Beautiful campground! Good spacing between the campsites. Large high pecan tree canopy that provides good shade. One downside is that because these are such large/older pecan trees there is a lot of limbs breaking and falling. We were lucky and none fell on our RV. The staff at the campground was out daily cleaning and picking up broken limbs. When we were there the lake was drained since one of the dam gates had broken a few weeks earlier. They are in the process of fixing the gate. We had already been informed by the staff about the lake issue in advance. We were thankful for that information since we had planned to bring a boat. We plan on staying here again when we are in the area. We camped in a 50 amp spot in a 36 ft. motorhome. - Texas Traveler

Palmetto is spread out in two very different areas one on either side of the San Marcos River. The two parts are connected via a walking bridge or a short drive down the highway. We camped in the farther loop (its not named on the map) in site 12. We really enjoyed this loop. Its covered in shade trees and has a nice open field off to one side. It has two nice trailheads in the loop as well. The bathrooms were very clean too. The other side has the lake and other features. Overall this was a very clean and well kept park. Its a state park so there is a $3 daily entrance fee per person on top of the $18 per day for the site. You can skip the entrance fee if you have a state parks pass ($70 annual). The trails were very wide and easy to walk with good views of the river. We will definitely be staying here again. - DVCard85

First Time at Palmetto State Park. This is a pretty Small State Park with one main loop for RV's. We stayed space 19 and parked front in because of a better view. Spaces are not too tight and facilities were very clean. There is a great view of the San Marcos River less than 100 yards away and very nice hiking trails through the park. Will definitely stay here again. - Davishouse2

We really liked how well maintained the trails were in the park. We took advantage of the open trails. Currently, the San Marcos River trail was closed. The park has some cool scenery for the area. I didn't feel like I had only driven 1.5 hours (from Austin) to get here. It felt more like East Texas area.
Some of the sites can be difficult to get into. There are trees on both sides of the outer sides and the pads aren't angled to road. I had to come at the site from the other direction. Basically, come down the road the wrong way. Next time, I'll see what sites are available before pulling into the loop. My trailer is almost 32'. If you have a longer trailer, you probably want to stay in the inner loop.
The park is close to I-10, but I didn't notice any noise. It was close to convenient stores. Also, close to the HEB in Luling.
I got 3 bars on my AT&T phone. I was able to get about 20mb/s down phone.
I was able to get some Austin OTA channels. PBS and ABC came in. I didn't test San Antonio channels, but you could probably pull them in. - mf01

We were flooded out of another campground and ended up at this one. Owners very nice and responded to problems quickly. Very old park that has never been updated. Half permanent residents and half electrical workers. Bathrooms and laundry and landscaping needed cleaning. Many many loose dogs roaming around area. We were unable to walk our dog without a can of pepper spray and walking stick. Our rate reflected monthly rate. The residents were very friendly though and it was cheap. WiFi was good. We probably wouldn't return. - wendie T

Nice enough place. Small, secluded, very quiet. Mostly long term but they keep a couple pull-thrus available for those passing through. Very nice folks. I wasn't that impressed with the WiFi. It's certainly above RV park average but not the best I've had either: 2-5mb on speedtest. - fulltimer121

This park is not a destination, but it is a very good place for a night or two. The sites were well kept and neat,the electric and water pressure were low but useable. Very good wi-fi ,tv reception and cell phone (verizon) .The RR and Shower were old and needed a good cleaning,didn't use them. The laundry was OK,$1.00 / machine. Management was great, very nice, but there were no discounts PERIOD. Easy to get to and leave and we will be back in our 5th wheel. - bub

Nice city park on the banks of the Guadalupe river, close to downtown Gonzalez. We stayed in one of the pull-through sites which was fairly level. Several of the back-in sites looked very small and not very level. Sites are mostly shaded and interior roads are gravel. The city park also has a golf course, and you make reservations there. We would definitely stay here again. - barrettjl

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

We enjoyed our stay at this park. We called ahead to let the owner know we would be coming in late (around 7pm) and she actually came out to the site to meet us there and check us in. Great customer service!! The park has recently added new restrooms and a hall. Both looked great. All sites are pull through. The park had excellent WiFi and full hook ups. The downside is no fire rings or other amenities and the sites are a bit close together. The location is nice as it is just on the outside of town and its right next to a large cattle pasture. The views are great. Overall the park has excellent hookups, WiFi and customer service. We would definitely stay here again. The owner lives next door to the property. Once you pick your site you will need to drive over and check in. - DVCard85

Sites are all pull-through. We had a nice evening in early June and loved watching the cows in the field behind us. Horses were being ridden on the street our front by some locals.
They just put in a community center and shower building. The showers were rain-type shower heads and were some of the best of our 11,000-mile trip. My sons thought they were the best and I agree. Water pressure was fine and electricity was not a problem. The owner was very nice and very helpful with questions. We would stay here again. - steammaker

Great little park--very quiet, great wifi, level sites and all pull throughs. The owners have invested time and money, and it shows. No trees here, but there will be, new ones have been planted. The owner lives next door and has chickens--she gave us a dozen very fresh eggs. I don't know if this is standard practice, but it was a nice touch. We would definitely stay here again. - hudsonguy

It has water, electric, sewer and a dump station. The sewer connections are covered with metal lids that say "water meter." Use a screwdriver and pry the lids open and you'll see the connection. The RV parking is on a hill in the park. There are no pull-throughs, trash pick-up, or fire rings. There are concrete picnic tables. There is no cable TV and there is no Wi-Fi. There is automobile and foot traffic going through the grounds because it is in a city park and near a high school. The city park has lighted tennis and volleyball courts and a baseball/softball complex. You must go into town to the City Hall before 4:00 PM to pay for the site. - RVTravelerToo

This is our second time at this park. It has all utilities including sewer. It is on the top of a small hill and views are nice. It is clean and well lit. There is some traffic going through the grounds because it is in a city park and near a high school. I really love coming here and will come back again if in the area. You must go into town to City Hall to pay for the site. We also went to the "Shiner" beer brewery where the samples are plentiful. Check the web site for brewery tour hours. - sherp108

Very nice, quiet, large city park. We were the only RV during our 2 night weekday stay. Park is well maintained and well lighted. Staff is very friendly. A visit to the Spoetzl Brewery is a nice feature if you like beer. We would stay here again and re-visit the brewery! - Bob & Stephanie

This park is incredible! The spaces are huge, with some including your own stone BBQ table a and picnic tables. Most spots look over the private lake and encourage you to walk by the lake. Restrooms, showers and laundry super clean! Can't wait to stay here again! Owners have a real winner here! Pool, patios and too many amenities to say. What a find! - Wandering Worleys
Mar 2014 - $12.00
We came for a week but stayed for a month. Such a wonderful campground with amazing owners/managers. The sites are very large and most have a view of the private lake. Level gravel parking spot, each with a cement pad the length of the site and 18 - 20 feet of grass yard between neighbors. There are 3 restrooms that are very nice and actually large individual rooms with shower, sink and toilet. They are locked so you need a key that you "rent" for $5 refundable per stay. They are immaculate as is the laundry room which has three new washers and dryers. There is a beautiful pool and spa but it is not heated so we didn't use them this time of the year. We had friends visit and they rented one of the cabins. Wow! They are all built by the owner who is a contractor and they are amazing, nothing rustic here. The rate reflects the monthly rate. We would definitely stay here again! - mikenchelby
