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. We camped at Lake Wood Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Loved the tiny town of Gonzales! Lots of history! Every restaurant we ate at was delicious. Highly recommend the following restaurants in the town square area: La Bella Tavola, Johnny's Cajun Café and Gonzales Food Market.

A great park! Lake Wood is a hydroelectric lake owned and operated by the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority. The back-in RV sites were roomy with lots of trees, grass and natural beauty. We had a full hookup site. The bathrooms and showers were clean but were a little old and outdated. The park host was friendly and helpful. There was fishing for those who like that sort of thing. They have a store that my husband was impressed with because of the amount of RV hardware they had available. We will stay there again when we are in the area. We camped at Lake Wood Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

The slots with full hook ups are in a Pecan Grove. It has a park like setting. The lake is just yards away, but a levy prevents you from having a lake view slot. The website says 50amp only available on one area near the water with no sewer hook up. However, there are more 50 amp slots with full hook ups.

Great RV park. Can't go wrong for $28 ($32 for 50 amp). Quiet and we saw no permanent residents. Mostly empty. A plus is checkout is 5 p.m. Monday thru Thursday!

Front office was fine and the people there were great. They were extremely helpful. Fishing very close.

Lots of room around the pads.

Sites are gravel but level. Electric and water hookups are in the back so you might need an extension cord/hose. We didn't. We camped at Lake Wood Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The town of Gonzales is nearby. Plenty to do in that town. Good Texas food.

Wal-Mart and HEB (grocery store) are about 5 miles away.

A surprising little park. We chose this park because we knew the state and city parks in the area would be full due to the TX State Jr Hi Rodeo finals going on. The entrance/office is plain, but when you enter the campground you are under huge pecan trees with green lush grass growing down to the river. About half the sites were occupied by permanent residents (the new oil boom in this part of Texas). The only way to get satellite service is to run about 100 yards of cable to get out from under the tree's canopy. We camped at Lake Wood Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.
