Stayed in a hotel for the first two weeks after arriving to Killeen, TX. Wish I had known about this RV park from the start. Located in downtown, central Killeen. Quick access to everything to include Ft Hood. Killeen park is right out the back gate, dog park within walking distance. Does not have a community shower/latrine facilities on the grounds, really the only drawback. Park has a security gate around the entire park, secure access gates, WiFi connection worked great. Incredibly friendly staff. Would strongly recommend this location to anyone. We camped at Cicada Springs RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice park, with super friendly managers. It's in a good location, easy to get to yet far enough off the highway to be very quiet. Our site was brand new, as they continue to add new sites. The high speed Internet is about the best I have seen, with many access points throughout the park. Verizon and sprint Internet also work well here. Over the air English-language television is limited to ABC, Fox and a weather channel. The park has a security gate and a laundry room. We camped at Cicada Springs RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here one weekend in mid-October because the park in Belton that we usually use to visit my nephew stationed at Ft. Hood was full. As noted by previous viewers, the new owner is converting this park from a mobile home park to a RV park. He has done a great job of renovating the sites into huge, long, and wide cement pads and patios. Most sites are back-ins, but there a about a dozen that are pull-through. There are some mobile homes remaining. Even with all the cement, there is 5-15' of grass between the sites. The asphalt park roads are in terrible shape. We had a level, FHU site that (as many are) was satellite friendly. There is no cable TV, but the 802.11 network was reliable. I am unable to be as generous in my rating as the previous reviewer (the 2 previous 10s are by the same person). There are NO bathrooms or showers, no recreational facilities, and no cable. I was able to get about a dozen local channels without even raising my antenna. The park was fairly full and most customers appeared to be people (including families) living and working in the area. It seems that the new owner has turned this former mobile home park with local residents into an RV park with local residents. Once again, I was NOT attacked while walking in the surrounding neighborhood even though other reviewers say this is a bad area. Personally, I think the previously praised by other reviewers security (gates, locks, etc.) is a bothersome, overdone annoyance. Then again, I am not your typical paranoid white RVer. As is typical of Texas RV parks, there is no recycling. As long as you don't need bathroom and showers, want recreational facilities, or mind being among real working class Americans, this park is fine. We camped at Cicada Springs RV Park in a Motorhome.
This RV park just keeps getting better and better. The owner has taken a trailer park and made it into a first-class RV park. All sites are concrete pads - long and level. Utilities are well-located. There are quite a few semi-permanents as there are many roofers taking care of the roofs damaged by hail recently. However, every site is kept clean and free of clutter. One of the real pluses is that the owner put a gate at the back so you can access the two mile park run/walk. Another plus: the owner has done much to ensure the security of his guests. This is the place to stay if visiting Killeen. We camped at Cicada Springs RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is off the old Hwy 190 and in a much older section of Killeen. We had little trouble finding it as we used map quest directions. The GPS actually gave us the right instructions as well. We had reservations but called the owner when we were about 15 minutes out. He gave us the gate code (the entire park is gated) and met us just after we arrived. He has done a wonderful job of converting an old mobile home park into a first class RV park and the effort he has put in is very visible. He is also the consummate southern gentleman. There is still a little work to do, but all in all, the park is clean, easy to navigate, and quiet. There is a very nice park behind the park available for jogging or walking pets. We will stay here again. We camped at Cicada Springs RV Park in a Motorhome.
Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $11.00
Rate of $11 was for two weeks stay. Park in transformation as new sites added monthly. All sites are concrete pads with grass around them. Will stay here again when in Killeen. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The park has a laundry, but not a restroom or showers. We camped at Cicada Springs RV Park in a Motorhome.
This is an older mobile home park being converted to an RV park. The new pads and power are very nice. The interior original roads are past their prime. Coming in from the east on 190, I was concerned about the surrounding neighborhood. Access to the park off of 190 is down a steep road that brings you to a closed gate. Be careful. The park is not listed in the current Good Sam RV Travel Guide, so we called ahead to both reserve a site and verify our GPS directions. The owner gave us a better route than most GPS's usually do. Though we had a pull-thru for just one night, our guide to the site suggested we might not be able to make the turns to the site with the dinghy attached. (I usually disconnect before going to the actual site, but wasn't going to due to the slope of the registration area. I did disconnect, but probably did not need to.) The owner has done a nice job of leaving some beautiful trees that were part of the old park in place, resulting in sites that vary in spacing and often provide a large yard like feel. I would have liked to stay longer to enjoy the very nice site we were provided. Did feel the park rate was a little too high. No credit cards, cash needed.

Very friendly and helpful staff. It was a very well maintained and clean park. Gated entrance was a real plus, and the park was very well lit up. Spaces were concrete, with concrete patio, and very level. We stayed there in a travel trailer. We camped at Cicada Springs RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Exceptionally nice RV park, clean, very easy in and out with large rig. Wide concrete sites, full hookups. Nice laundry facilities. Owner very accommodating if you have special needs (I.e. late arrivals, etc.). Secure gated entrance. Property is well maintained and backs up to a community park with 2 mile walking trail. Very convenient to Fort Hood, Still House Lake, Belton Lake, and local shopping/eateries. We are full timers and have stayed multiple times. Small portable storage sheds available to rent if you are going to "stay a while". Will definitely stay again. We camped at Cicada Springs RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Date of Stay: February, 2012 - $15.00
The park is very nice and real close to a community park. The new owner is converting this mobile home park into an RV Park. There are a few mobile homes left but eventually will be gone per the new owner. All the RV sites are spacious concrete pads with room for the RV and plenty of room for two vehicles or more. Owner was very friendly and gave us the Passport rate, plus discount for staying a couple days longer. There are quite a few RVers here, but it is a real quiet and gated community. This is a perfect park for us visiting family stationed at Ft Hood. We definitely would return to this park. I am rating this an 8 only because it does not have bath/showers or community center. I believe the new owners will turn this into a 10 rated park. We camped at Cicada Springs RV Park in a Motorhome.
Date of Stay: November, 2011 - $30.00
The park is under conversion from an older mobile home park to a full fledged RV Park. There are a few trailers scattered around, but we were told they are being removed as the renovation continues. All the RV sites are spacious concrete pads with room for the RV and most times two vehicles. Owners are very gracious and seem very interested in making this conversion a success. There are many long term RVers who are located in the area for construction work so the park is relatively empty during the day. There are no shower or bath facilities, but there is a small laundry for use by guests. The owner is installing a security gate to increase the security of the park. There is a nice office area, but the owner is usually working somewhere in the park, so it is often closed. Questions about cable, phones, and modems were answered no because they are not part of park stay; they are available in the park by service provider and can be acquired by direct user contract. We were very pleased with our stay and would not hesitate to utilize this park again. We would have rated it higher but felt the lack of shower/bath facilities and quick stores items would be desired by many. We camped at Cicada Springs RV Park in a Motorhome.
