Price above reflects weekly rate. This was our first stay at Buckhorn Lake Resort and we found it to be an excellent park. It is well laid-out, well maintained, and in a scenic location. In addition to being a great park for touring nearby Kerrville, Bandera, and Fredericksburg, we could see why many stay for extended periods of time - because they offer many social activities for those who seek social activities. - God Bless America
Beautiful park even in the slush and cold. They had a spaghetti supper that was just awesome. Home made sauce and all. They had a country music jam afterwards that was fun. Very clean and wonderful. Nice retreat from the ice and sleet. We will return many times as our travels cross paths. - Bee bzs
Nice well maintained park with convenient access to/from Interstate and to Kerrville. This is a combination rental and ownership park. The ownership portion is very remarkable, the rental portion sites are OK but nothing special - concrete pad, some grass and a picnic table. Very nice workout room. WiFi was horrible - could not get email's most of the time and forget trying to stream video. Upscale park like this needs better WiFi for me to return. - Tom Willing
Some nice views of the river, nice large sites, pretty quiet. Internet excellent, shade trees, picnic tables, lots of birds. Pretty level sites. Nice girl in the office, accommodating. Kerrville is a very pretty place. - LottaTidbits
Kerrville is a nice town and this is the best park in the area. The grounds are well maintained, the staff is friendly and helpful. The park is very pet friendly, the Wi-Fi and cable work great and is free. The park is quiet, restrooms and showers are always clean and work great. Evening campfires are nice when weather permits. We stayed at many RV resorts at every price level and this park is the most enjoyable and relaxing of them all and we will return. - silverwing
Rate reflects PA discount. Third time guest. Paved road down middle with mostly back in spaces on either side; a few pull-throughs at one end. Sites are grass and dirt and mostly level. Wonderful river view spaces, but watch for crossover utilities. Internet and TV good. Good dog walking areas at bridge end of park. Some puddles in the rain, but sites drain very well. Quiet. Friendly, helpful staff. Will definitely be back. - LoneWolf
This is a large well maintained park with good utility service located along the river which is nice. There seems to be lots of activities available. Cable TV and WiFi are available but at an extra charge. The park's biggest negative is that the sites are very close. - OldeJohn
Stayed at this park for many years but haven't been back for the past couple. Park is not bad in the location is good on the river and near town and the pools and rest rooms are clean. This is and old park and it appears no maintenance has been done on the sites in the past several years. Are main complaint is the added cost for everything. Cable TV is extra , holidays are 6-8 dollars extra, and the kicker is each additional person over 2 six years and up is $8. We used to stay here with our 2 grand daughters over Thanksgiving on a river site for $44 dollars a night. Today we would pay $74. Too much for our budget. - ii-love-ramblin
Very well maintained park. Very family friendly with a lot of activities available. Beautiful access to the river. The river here is very shallow and fishing isn't possible. If you want to fish you'll need to go into town where its dammed up. They pick up trash every morning. It is very secure with personnell driving around most of the night. - Nedster
BEWARE of the tree overhanging the main road that is too low for large rigs. This park is definitely not big rig friendly even though the owner assured me when I made a reservation that there would be no problem for our size unit. We have a 37' fifth wheel and the tree overhanging the main road put an 11 foot tear in our roof. All but two of the sites appeared to be occupied by permanent residents. Some of the trailers were quite old. The bathrooms were old and not very clean. The 50 amp plug at our site did not work so we had to use the 30 amp plug. The cable wires along the back of the sites are very low and was laying on top of our roof. Many trees and large rocks at entrance to the sites make these sites very difficult to get into. This park seems to be for permanent residents. We would NEVER camp here again!!!! - krb
Price based on weekly rate. You don't get pools, playgrounds, river access etc. What you do get are a paved road, paved, level sites, small patio, good 50 amp, Wi-Fi and cable. I thought sites were on the smallish side. I'd guess about half the sites are taken up by long-term folks, and of whats left, not many would take a big rig so be sure to call ahead. Rocks, some large enough to do damage are used to mark site entrances so you need to be careful. Good laundry area, bath/shower not too visually appealing because of age but it was clean. Obvious effort made to keep the place up. Nice folks too. With prevailing rates in the area its a deal if you don't need recreational amenities. - fulltimer121

The address for the Center is 3805 State Hwy 27 East Kerrville,TX . Reservations can be made by calling the above phone number. The office to make payment at is in the courthouse in Kerrville at the corner of RT16 (Sidney Baker) and Rt27 (Main Street). 700 Main Street Ste 101. This is their fairgrounds so be aware it’s like camping at a fairground. We had 30 AMP and Water hook up. It was pleasant, quiet and close to the city of Kerrville. For $10.00 a night you can’t go wrong. We would definitely camp their again. - M.Register
This was the least expensive place we could find in the area and it was the worst money we've ever spent on camping. This KOA was the yard in front of the KOA "office" which has been turned into a convenience store. We arrived about 4 pm and were greeted by a KOA camp host who was friendly. Many of the spots were occupied by long term residents and it showed. The road was gravel two track, the spots were gravel and dead grass but were at least level. Our tail end stuck into the parking lot for the carry out and there was constant traffic in and out until it closed around 8 pm. It was also on a busy road and we were about 20 yards off the road. I would only recommend this if you were desperate for a place to stay and am surprised that none of the other sites we looked at for reviews mentioned any of the above. If they had we would not have stayed. Their WiFi was serviceable and along with the friendly staff that's the best I can say about it. - Jim Klinger
Nice staff. Large laundry. Everything clean. Cable TV worked, as did WiFi. Close to I-10, but in the trees seemingly away from everything. - diceshooter60
The good news is that this is a fairly inexpensive KOA compared to most. The bad news is that it isn't anything special. It's ~5 minutes off I-10 so it's quiet. It has pretty decent WiFi in a location where Verizon service was marginal. It also has easily accessible gas and diesel pumps; the gas is no big deal but finding a diesel pump accessible to a 40' motorhome isn't easy in this area. Those are pretty much the pluses for this park. The roads are crumbling asphalt that needed paving years ago as are the sites. The sites are fairly close to one another and are largely dirt, but that's partly due to the TX drought. We were up front in the short term area and the only view was of the office. But at $26 for full hookups it was a decent place to stay for a couple of nights. If you are spending a week enjoying Hill Country there are plenty of nicer places to stay. - docj
Stayed 4 days, but didn't use restrooms or showers. However, outside of buildings are fairly new. 50 Amp FHU site, but the water and electric are on the wrong side so had to run the cord and hose under MH. Nice covered picnic table at each site. Nice city park on the River. Fairly Quiet even with highway close by. Only 5 other campers here. We would stay again. - FTatcret2013
It was hard for me to rate this park since we wound up leaving before staying overnight. We reserved 2 nights during Texas Spring Break Week. When I made the reservation I explained to the lady that we have a 37' fifth wheel (like I always do). Upon arrival, she seemed concerned to learn that we had that large a rig. There were only a few sites open (they assign them to you upon arrival). Long story short, all of the sites were short, but I could have squeezed into them. The big problem was they had thick tree limbs overhanging about 12' off of the ground. We are about 13'-4" tall. Consequently we had to leave and try and find a new place to stay. The girl in the office could not process a refund and said a check would be mailed. Next day I get a call from the park asking if we left early since no one was in our site. I explained all over what happened and was again promised a refund. Seems like a nice park but better tell them 4 times what you are driving or you might not get in. - MontyHall
Nice pull through sites. Farther off I-10 than it looks on the map and signage to find it non-existent. We chose 30 amp...50 is $28. We felt it was a bit high for what is offered. - User2855
This is a 55 plus park, but if you are only staying a few nights and don't have kids they will let you stay. They have about 5 pull thrus for overnight guests which are simply parking stalls drawn on the pavement next to the road. No grass, shade, or even a picnic table. Wi-fi doesn't work. The indoor pool and hot tub were a nice perk, but the older folks didn't seem to like it that we were there. - cherrytree
This park would be great but is WAY too hard to get in/out of. It's an older park in town and not set up well for big rigs. There are only 5 pull-throughs, which are next to the road and have no space between them. The escort nearly ran us into golf carts. We'll have to ask our neighbors to move their car so we can pull out. Otherwise the park is very friendly and facilities are fine. - Vern&Margaret
Park is mostly full time residents, some spaces for transients. My site was wide, level, and had a large shade tree, flowers and concrete patio. Nice covered pool, clean showers and toilets. The park is very quiet. Close to shopping and restaurants. Escort to your site. The park accepts only checks or cash. My $34 included the Good Sam discount. If you enjoy a nice peaceful, friendly park this place fits the bill. I would stay here again. - P.C. Lalle
We originally booked for one week but extended our stay to 10 days while we took care of some business in the area. What a great stay! As another reviewer mentioned, there was some staff turnover but the owner's wife was on the scene and was as nice as could be handling things. We have a 42' motor home plus tow, and the site was long and level. This is no fancy RV resort, but it offers a lot for the money. There is a converted house on the property that houses the laundry, fitness room, and about seven PRIVATE bath/showers. We didn't use the private showers, but thought the concept was great. The "lodge" area has a fireplace with big screen television that has many satellite channels. There's a billiards table and ping pong table, plus a table that could be used for a card game or jigsaw puzzles. There's also a library for swapping your books. Also, there's a large kitchen/dining area. We kept saying "this place would be great for rallies!" The free wifi actually worked, the cable television only had the most basic channels but was included in the price. We did see a nice pool and hot tub area which we did not use. The park is a little off the beaten bath, but we liked the country feel and found it no problem to make the short drive into Kerrville. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. - Denise Kirk
I stayed at this place for 4 nights. Normally the Passport America is only good for two days. They gave me a partial discount on day three and then due to having to deal with a disgruntled employee I got the full discount on day four.
This place is on two levels. I got parked next to the entrance road so I got hammered by people ignoring their speed limit and kicking up tons of dust until the ice storm hit. I had to shut windows.
You have to walk up a steep hill to make use of the laundry, Showers, and their "Lodge." The bathrooms and their laundry were fine. I did not bother to see the ping-pong table and TV in their lodge.
The girl who checked me in was rude. Evidently I caught her the day she was fired. Good riddance. Her second was nice, but also was planning on leaving.
Without a discount, this place would be far too expensive. It's out in the middle of nowhere. 10 miles from Kerrville. Unfortunately, it's the cheapest place worth staying at. - RVWriter
Very nice park and will try and come back when the weather is better. Site level and electric solid 50 amp. Free Wi-Fi and cable TV but very few stations and reception not very good. The wifi worked great. - Rick & Karen
