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.
Isaacs Restaurant in Junction (5 miles) has great food.

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.

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.Undo

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.

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.Undo

Another nice Texas State Park! Fishing, hiking, geocaching, kayaking, birding and wildlife viewing abound. Four bird blinds are serviced by volunteers. Sites are paved, level and most have shade. Park staff and volunteers were friendly and helpful. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Nice quiet campground with very nice park host and rangers. Fee includes park pass. No TV unless you have satellite. Only negative is not much privacy between sites. Had site 6 which was nice but sunny and out in middle. Next time would pick a site on the other side of the loop. This time there was a Casita group that had filled the campground. Great place to see wildlife. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We used this park for an overnight. The park hosts were very friendly and helpful. It's about 10 miles off the interstate. A very quiet and serene area with large oak trees and well maintained. This would be a great park if you enjoy nature trails and a peaceful setting. My only complaint was the $20 fee for camping plus the $8 entrance fee. We didn't purchase the Texas park pass (about $75) which would have saved some, but just thought the cost was high when compared to other states.

A very pleasant park. We only needed an overnight stop, but this would be a great place to spend some time. This was our first stay in a Texas state park and we didn’t realize entrance fees would be tacked on to the camping fee, something which hadn’t happened in state parks in other states. The Texas park pass is expensive ($70), but quickly pays for itself in waived entrance fees and the coupons for a few reduced camping fees, a good deal if one is going to be staying in very many Texas state parks.

A wonderful Texas state park with nicely spaced campsites, some with paved slabs. There are lots of walking trails in the preserve area and down to the South Llano river. There is a bird sanctuary and blinds to observe the birds. Very friendly ranger who let us pick our own spot. We did not have any Verizon cell service here, the only negative. Rate is with the Texas state park pass so we did not have to pay the per person daily entrance fee. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

This is a lovely park with lots of hiking & biking trails and great birding. We loved watching the beautiful colourful birds at the numerous bird blinds the park has built. The RV sites are spacious and private. The washrooms and showers were very nice although there aren't enough of them (only 2 showers in each of the Rest Rooms). Weekends are busy times even in October so I recommend making a reservation. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

It's been about 8 years since we last visited, and the park remains a good place to visit. Well maintained with plenty of wildlife to view, this park on the western edge of the Texas Hill Country is a great place to bring the family. The South Llano River flows along the edge of the park, and it's wonderfully relaxing to play in it during the hot spring and summer days. Rio Grande turkeys roost in the park, and the trees are full of a large variety of birds (including hundreds of humming birds). The sites are large, well maintained and clean. The bathrooms were spotless. The camp sites on the upper area are lightly shaded by mesquite and have a lot of breezes, while those in the lower area a densely shaded by pecans, but have less wind coming through them. If you stay here, try to take a day and drive 60 miles west on I-10 to Sonora and visit the caverns there. We camped at South Llano River State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo
