Rate reflects use of Texas Park Pass with discount. Beautiful state park on South Llano River. All 30 amp at this time, but power worked well, good water pressure. No FHU here but there is a dump station. Sites are very well spaced and allow privacy. Park stayed quiet even when full and busy. Staff is very present, camp hosts are friendly and stay busy. They sell firewood in the campground, but you cannot gather. Birding is the big attraction here. They have numerous trails that are very easy to walk as well as four bird blinds which allow great viewing of many species of birds. All campsites have a covered picnic table and fire ring. Spaces are asphalt, with grass between them. Most sites are level, but a few have inclines to front or back. Lots of trees and plenty of wildlife. Rules for multiple vehicles appear to be enforced and no parking is allowed on the grass which we liked. We would stay here again. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Motorhome.

Junction is just about 6 miles away. Good BBQ at Lum's. If you need Verizion wifi, forget it. The library in Junction is very nice, they have a museum in there as well, they offer free wifi, bring your computer or use theirs. The McDonalds in Junction offers free wifi as well.

Long, level gravel pull through sites. Some have large trees for shade. Close to I-10 but quiet. Wifi pretty good, TV very good. Our satellite worked well. Nothing fancy but very acceptable for a nite or two. The Guadalupe River is immediately adjacent, and accessible, to the park. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice state park, with lots of walking trails. The specialty is birding and there are blinds situated throughout the park for viewing birds. The campsites are all paved backup sites with water and 30-amp electric, but no sewer hookup. There is good spacing between sites. The negative from our standpoint is that we could not get telephone or internet service. One of us felt helpless without these services, and the other felt relieved to be able to relax and enjoy time in the wild without the anxieties that telephone and internet service tend to inspire. Would highly recommend this park for some one would like to take a respite for a few days. There is an additional daily entrance fee for a Texas State Park. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Motorhome.

South Llano River State Park is 5 miles from Junction, Texas, in the Texas Hill Country. It is a large, beautiful park with miles of great hiking trails and abundant wildlife that includes 400+ turkey and many deer. The South Llano River flows through the park for swimming, tubing, kayaking, canoeing and fishing.

They have 55 water and 30A electric sites with good shade. We were in site 51, very nice, private site with shade. No wifi in the park. Fair service with Sprint, spotty with AT&T, no service with Verizon.

Great park. Highly recommend. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Junction is a neat town, groceries and other shops close by. If you're not in the mood to cook on a campfire, head to Lum's BBQ in town, great stuff there. There are at least 2 places to rent canoes or inner tubes from for river fun.

Second time staying at SLR State Park. Park star. Was very friendly and check in was easy. Site was pretty level - 1 block needed on front tires. Space 21 is the most private in the park, but all sites looked good to me. There are a few very nice hiking trails, both down to the river and into the hills. There are also 4 very nice Bird Blinds that allow good wildlife viewing. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Motorhome.

In addition to the camping fee there is a $5 per day entrance fee unless you have a Texas State Park pass. The park is fairly easy access from interstate, just outside of Junction, Texas. The sites are well spaced and most have at least some shade. We could see through the trees enough to get satellite. We did not have a usable Verizon data signal and limited voice. The whole area seems to be off of the cell grid. The camp hosts were very nice and helpful. There is hiking or biking on the several trails and, of course, the river to float. We would certainly stay at this park again. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Motorhome.

This has to be one of our favorite Texas State Parks. There is nice spacing between the sites with many of the sites having mostly or half shade. They are upgrading sites with limited shade to provide a shelter over the picnic table. The park is quiet from outside noise (interstate). Phone service is limited. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our favorite close to home campground. It's a small State Park with a really nice layout. Plus the South LLano River runs right through it. It's a long oval - with one side all sunny and not much shade the other other side very shady. We always try to get the shady side of the oval.

There's only one bathroom/shower but it's always clean and well attended to. The sites are water and electric only, but there is a dump station.

It's a very busy park on weekends and many times with lots of family get togethers. Can be full of young kids and boy scouts, etc during the weekends. But during the week its quiet and sparsely populated.

No Wifi and it's very very difficult to get a cell signal here. Many times when you do it's voice only and not data service. This applies to both Verizon and ATT - though ATT does work some. Mind you, this includes using a Wilson Cell Phone Booster. Without the booster? Forget it.

I gave it a 9 - if it had Wifi or Cell phone access it would easily be a 10. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Junction is a pretty basic small town with not much to do. But it's also a friendly little Texas berg like many old small towns all across the state. Fort McKavett State Historic Site is nearby and is worth a visit - an old fort in the chain of forts that protected settlers in the mid-1800s. It's been spruced up and is as interesting as it is remote.

This is the second time we have stayed in this state park. We were here last year at the same time. Overall this is a very nice park. Excellent for bird watching, especially in April. Small park, and very quiet. Borders on the LLano River which provides swimming and tubing. Also many hike and bike trails for getting out in nature. Sites are not real level front to back but side to side are not too bad. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of our favorite parks. Many of the sites have nice patio's with BBQs and chairs. The sites are well kept and clean. All the services work well. They are always working to maintain and clean the park. The park is near the river and you have access to walking along the river. The managers their assistants always do a great job of making our stay feel like we are at home. We look forward to our next stay at the park.

A beautiful state park. What it lacks in amenities (no sewer, no 50 amps, no tv, no Wi-Fi) is more than made up by wildlife, birding, hiking, scenery, fishing, tubing in the summer (not January), wide, level sites, well spaced, friendly rangers. We will definitely stay again. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Motorhome.

This state park is located at Junction, TX and about 100 miles west of San Antonio and is another great Texas Hill Country state park. The scenery is beautiful and the wildlife is abundant. The river flows along the boundary and is a popular place for tubing. There’s a wild turkey habitat plus numerous deer and other animals like armadillos. There is also a wide variety of birds. The park has many trails of varying lengths and difficulty. The campground offers 30 amp and water hookups. All sites are paved and reasonably level front to back. Most of the sites have shelters with picnic tables. There are no pull-throughs, but the sites are angled making for easier back in. The park itself is five miles south of Junction and I10. We had good roaming Verizon cell service but no data. Satellite TV was fairly easy to get. In spite of the popularity of the river, during portions of the year the park closes almost all river access except for five hours each day to allow the large turkey population undisturbed roosting. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is laid out a little strange. It's obvious that they have been doing improvements one site at a time. Some of the sites are a little close together and some are spacious. Some have a cover over the picnic table – others don't. Some are gravel sites and some are perfectly poured double wide cement slabs. Some have the picnic table and fire pit near the RV – some quite a walk away. All sites have plenty of vegetation separating them. Some sites have lots of trees and cover – some are out in the open. Most sites have total or partial shade, with large oak trees and native shrubs abounding. The bathrooms were, by far, the cleanest and nicest I've seen at a Texas State Park. They were very well maintained. The park feels secluded, although you can hear the nearby highway sometimes at night. The park staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They have a neat little room at the park headquarters for kids with skulls and pelts from wild animals of the area. They also have activity books and coloring pages. The bird blinds were a fun aside. They feed the birds every morning and provide nice covered blinds for you to observe them. The scenic overlook was nice, and swimming/picnic area was nice as well. There were tons of wildlife to observe including deer, rabbits, turkeys, cardinals, and antelope (kept in a ranch near the entrance). The park is almost always booked on the weekends during the spring and summer, so go during the week if you want privacy and space. This was a great park we plan on visiting again. The staff was great also. Junction is only about 5 miles away and has all your Ace Hardware and S-Foods grocery needs. T-Mobile and AT&T barely had one bar out there and data was virtually at a standstill. There is Wi-Fi at the check in station – and at other areas of the park but slow and totally nonexistent where we were. Solid water pressure. Park was very clean well taken care of. Lots of trails for hiking and walking. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
