3 Parks near Lakehills, Texas
Mar 2015 - $10.00
$10 is based on month stay. Electricity extra. Not an overnight stay campground. Most people here stay a month or two. Big spacious sites, grass and trees. Most people have satellite with long cable to get a spot away from trees to get signal. The lake has been dry for several years. Very friendly and clean. Large clubhouse. Pot lucks, dinners, cards, dominoes, bingo, shooting group, woodcarver building, small pool with hot tub, (call office about 30 minutes ahead of time to have hot tub heater turned on) pool table, tennis table, and barbeque grills. Quilters and sewers leave their machines on tables in rear of building. Very social place. Campground is about 10 minutes from highway on curving, hilly road through a residential area. - fander

No cable at our site. Lots of trees, so no satellite. Local TV was mostly sales (QVC). Water pressure so low our electric toilet wouldn't operate properly. Our electric OK but others had problems. Gravel site very uneven. One wheel off the ground to level. Lake at 4% capacity and driving through a subdivision for 2-3 miles to reach the park was "interesting". Nice enough but probably won't be back. - kitfoxmod3

An older family friendly park. Owner is awesome! Talk to the office for directions, as it your GPS will not be accurate. You first trip in you will wonder where in the world you are going, but after the first time, it is fine! LOL This is not a park for an overnight stop. Lake is dry due to lack of rain in Texas the past few years but the park is still a nice quite place to hang out for a few days. - TexasRee

Our first trip to this Thousand Trails. We were a bit worried about the drive through San Antonio and making sure we found the correct route to the campground. We had heard horror stories about a few of the options to get to this campground. We were coming from the east. We took 46W to 1283 to 37.
Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly. She asked if we had been here before, we told her no. She was very forthcoming with information on the different areas of the campground. As well as gave us some information about the area and Texas as a whole.
We found our spot and set up.
The next day we took a walk around the campground. This place is huge. And at least right now almost empty.
Quite a few deer strolling around.
We did go down to their activity center for breakfast over the weekend, that was a good deal. Good food, good prices.
Bathroom/showers were clean and a decent size. Depending on what section you are in, most sites seem to be pretty spacious.
One thing we really appreciated was that every time we came in or out of the grounds there was someone in the ranger station. Rangers always came out and said hi.
Too bad the lake is non existent in this area. I'm sure the lack of the lake is affecting the amount of usage this park gets. - Kgtraveler

WARNING FOR DIRECTIONS: This is not the same as Lake Medina RV Park and your GPS may take you to the wrong one. This is Medina Lake RV and Camping Resort at 215 Spettle Road.
Very nice park. The deer, including a buck, wander around all the time. The Activities Center is huge! WiFi is free and adequate (but slow). You might get it from your site if you are in F 33-39. Pool is pretty far from the campsites. Lots of wooded campsites. 50 amp is $3 extra. Very clean. Very nice. - sfrantz

This is a large campground, a bit rough, but with lots of campsites – many of them with full hookups and large enough to accommodate most any rig. The route to the campground includes driving down some residential streets in an area that is a bit run down. Be sure to watch for the big “turn before this sign” sign on Park Road 37. There are three primary sections of this Thousand Trails preserve. One section is near the front gate and the large pool. The sites closest to the pool (Section A) are water/electric only but nearby is full hookup Section R which is popular with those with big rigs. About a mile in from the front gate is Section F which is closer to the big Activity Center and mini-golf. These sites are full hookup. Adjacent to that area and still farther from the front gate are Sections B and C. These are water/electric sites. At one time these were very popular sites due to their proximity to Medina Lake. These days Medina Lake is more valley than lake. Nearer the dam and a distance from the campground there’s a bit of water, but at the campground there’s no water to be seen. Medina Lake has a history of going through dry spells but the current one has lasted over 10 years now. There are deer everywhere and rather tame – hanging out in campsites expecting the humans to feed them. San Antonio is about an hour away and Bandera, which is called the “Cowboy capital of Texas” is nearby. My Verizon data was 3G and Activity WiFi was okay but went down after a storm and wasn't restored before we concluded our stay. - nazpaz
