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.

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.

Best kept secret of Texas. This lovely, tree-lined park is a "destination" and that's saying quite a bit for Junction, TX. We hope all the rest of you pick another park, so there's always room for US when we get here. We had a large gravel site, with some shade, a fire ring, and a picnic table. The land was left to the State with the provision it be kept together and offered to the people. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This state park is our favorite, and we visit Texas state parks frequently. No 50 amp or sewer hookups (a recently upgraded dump station is available), but a beautiful and relatively small campground. Most campsites have some amount of shade, and some of the sites can handle larger RVs. The attraction here is nature. Old growth native pecan grove along the river with wild turkeys, deer, and migrating birds including painted buntings. There are lots of trails through the woods and up into the hills; great place for kids with bikes. There is no TV signal and very few RF radio stations, but who needs that stuff here? The river is spring-fed, and the water flows clean and clear even when other waterways in the state are dried up. It's our favorite river swimming hole. For the youngsters (and those young at heart) the park rents tubes. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lum's Barbeque in Junction is one of the best small-town barbeque joints in the state. It is the smaller place near the river, not the big barbeque restaurant near IH-10.

A nice, quiet park. The Llano river runs through the park. According to the ranger, it is spring fed, therefore pretty comstant level. Nice for swimming and fishing. Campsites are nicely spaced and have mature trees. Most have shade and those that don't have covered picnic tables. The river is not close to the camping, but there is plenty of parking near the river access. Bathrooms are nice and kept clean. No phone (AT&T) or TV reception.

This is a pretty park close enough for a weekender from Austin or San Antonio. Sites are either packed gravel or cement. Any of the "5"s are good (25, 35, 45). Check the website for locations. Restrooms are clean. Nice hiking trails for birders. South Llano River offers a cool break during hot Texas summer days. Book early because it fills quickly on weekends.

This is a very pleasant and quiet campground with lots of birds. I really like this campground and had stayed here before, but I really needed cell service this time. I was misled by an earlier post that mentioned that they were able to get Verizon cell service, but I was barely able to send out a couple of text messages via roaming. There was no data service at all. I had to leave early the next morning to make my business call down the highway. I would not have any problems coming back here again when I did not need cell service. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Motorhome.
