10 Parks near Lampasas, Texas
Nov 2016 - $36.00
Sites are small and crowded. Lots of road noise from the highway. Park is clean. Short walk to Harts Firehouse BBQ. Good smoked brisket.
The WiFI is basic free TenGo and it is pretty poor. You can pay to get upgraded speeds. We wound up using our cell phone MiFi. - TXiceman1

The spaces are built around the shade trees so the sites are all different sizes and shapes. Most are very close together and some sites are very short and some are very long. Sites are gravel and all are not real level. Pastures border the east side and noisey HWY 281 borders the west side. Burrs are abundant. Short dog walk will result in 20-30 burrs per dog. There are few daily sites. The park is about to expand again by at least 2 acres. - Mrmac8

We checked in on Sunday when the office is closed, without reservations. The process went very well and we were quickly at a site. This is a somewhat small park and the space we were in was very tight side to side. The utilities were OK. Since were were under a tree we used the cable which had a good number of channels but the quality was OK at best. The biggest issue we had was the road noise. Our site was 50 or 60 feet off the highway and at times the road noise distracted from our stay. The campground is on the edge of town and you hear traffic accelerating while going out and decelerating when going in. The noise is intermittent which was for us more noticeable than being on an interstate. Some sites had picnic tables, but ours did not. We would stay here again if the need arises. - barthur

We stayed here for one night on our way south. With the PA discount it was a good deal. The park is in a rural area. The path to the CG from the main road is gravel and dirt. It was dusty but easy to drive. I did wonder, however, what it would be like if there had been a lot of rain. The sites are a thin layer of gravel and grass. Our site was a fairly long pull through and it accommodated our 40' MH and our toad without disconnecting. It was reasonably level. Utility connections were properly placed. There isn't an office; a park host lives in the first RV you encounter. Her phone number is posted to call if she isn't around. It was easy to get a satellite lock since there were only a few small trees. Verizon 4G/LTE worked well. - docj

This is an RV park under new management. Park was clean and on-site manager was very helpful. Passport America rate was cash or check. We only stayed one night on our trip to Killeen. Used the laundry which was right next to our RV. Just one washer and dryer, but they worked well. Price was reasonable. Our Verizon worked well, so we didn't miss the WiFi. Only negatives - watch out for tack thorns and some sites were not very level. - TravelingAdams

Not far off of us 281. There is some road noise. Very freindly host. No problem leveling 5th wheel. Not bad for overnight. - realshorttime

This is the fourth time that I have stayed here. This time it was for over a month. We have a contract putting up communication systems with the Army and this was a perfect location for us. I think most of the other reviews have hit it on the head so I won't drag this out. The place is clean and safe and although right next to 190 I never heard any traffic in the trailer... there is virtually NO shade so keep that in mind for summer camping... seems to be a mixture of 50/50 short term / long term campers - but the place is quiet at night and clean ... the park Host stays on top of everything ... my rate was 450 a month and I camped in in a large 5th wheel .. the park is about 20 minutes from Fort Hood and Copperas Cove and about 5 minutes from Wal-Mart in Lampasas ... internet is hit and miss and I think that they are still on a Hughes Satellite system thus the slow speeds .. you get about 13 over the air channels - half of them Spanish ... I would stay here again ... large pull thru sites ... gravel .. somewhat level (almost) .. good to strong water pressure .. stable electricity (111V the entire time) ... at night it gets really dark which is great ... laundry facility is reasonably priced and clean ... several washers and dryers... several good food locations within 5 miles ... I give it 5 stars. - Ghostwriter66

We stayed here for 2 months - April & May 2016. The laundry is good and reasonable. The driver side of our site was a little close to the next site but was spacious with a large oak tree on the passenger side. Water pressure was good. Not many sites can handle a big rig if you exclude the pull through sites which have no real shade trees. The statement of Free WiFi is true but if you really want to connect to the internet, be prepared to provide your own. The WiFi provided is not stable and was constantly up and down. - fulltimetraveler2

This campground is located approximately 7 miles East of Lampasas Texas on Highway 190. The rural setting is quiet but a bit unhandy for quick access to Lampasas. The campground is clean and our site was level and decently sized. The roads and campsites are not paved but were adequately rocked. The campground is fairly plain but the $30 nightly charge is fair.
When we arrived at the campground we were unsure how long we were staying, (1 night or 2) so we booked two. The next morning we decided to leave and left the campground before the check-out time of 11 AM. The manager refused to give us a refund for the 2nd night and said it was not their policy to issue refunds. The park was less than half full so we certainly did not cost them a booking.
We feel we were treated unfairly and will not stay here again. I would have given a higher rating except for the no refund issue. - wildcat77

This is a very small campground located about a mile east of downtown Lometa on Hwy 183. Built and dedicated in 2002 this park has a nice playground and pavilion for family picnics. There are about 15 sites. They are relatively level with water and electric and 30/50 service. No full hookups though. The road in the park is asphalt. Some sites are back-in while others are pull through. There are Live Oak trees on most sites. We stayed here in a 32 foot with two slides and had plenty of room even with the awning out. There is a bath house that was clean but no place in the shower to hang a towel, clothes or even a soap holder. That was my only issue. We stayed here two nights and will definitely stay again if passing through. - Bill from Texas

This is a nice park with gravel sites and plenty of shade. There is a breakfast bar available on site and dinner dining is also available. We stayed on the weekend and there were activities for kids and evening entertainment for adults. The only complaint we had was the excessive sticky grass burrs. They were everywhere, even on the gravel sites. We had a hard time keeping them off shoes and out of the trailer. Bring hard soled shoes. They are difficult to remove from tennis shoes and/or flip flops. - Rv4funinTx

Stayed here after the rains have flooded most other parks out. The biggest downside was the price--$52 total after the myriad of additional fees they add on. For what they offered here (not much besides very plentiful hiking and a failed "observatory" visit due to cloud cover) the price was way too high.
Our spot was nowhere near level and I had to chock the trailer to keep it from rolling backward after taking it off the TV. Trees are everywhere and beautiful--except the one at the RV area exit that is overhanging enough to catch the top of our rig and rip it. We made a wide turn--so be very careful driving around the park.
The biggest complaint I had was that we just got a weird "vibe" from the place, like families were not welcome and that RV's were a distant afterthought. They made it very clear that they loved dogs but it was obvious that kids were not very high on their list of favorite people.
The park is very far from civilization--we usually buy food when we arrive so we were hurting for food by the time we left. The "grocery store" there does not sell anything if consequence (like milk).
Pool is small and when we were there it was pretty gross--you could smell the chlorine but it was a pea-soup green color.
All in all, a very beautiful park with very little to do (besides hiking--tons of hiking). Go here if you want an isolated and quiet experience but not if you want a family weekend. - chrislachance

My family and I enjoyed this campground. We used it as an alternate to Inks Lake SP, and we are glad we did. We played at Inks during the day and came back to the quiet at Canyon of the Eagles. Staff were all helpful and nice. The reserve is nice and quite large. Enjoyed biking through the reserve. Pool is very small (residential sized). Movie shown for the kids each night which is a nice touch. RV spots were shaded and good spacing. Our spot was level. Park is at the end of the road and about 20 min drive from Burnet. The downfall of the park is the cost. It was $39/ night plus $4 per person, plus a nightly resort fee. It ended up being more like $60 each night. We would still return. - HJH

This is a nice quiet campground. The sites are on grass and are backed up to the Colorado River. Every site has water and a household 20 amp outlet for power. It was enough to power our AC and fridge. There is a dump station on the way out. The owners are nice and you can take whichever site you want. The campground is adjacent to Colorado Bend State Park (AKA Lemon's Fishing Camp) which has no hookups which is why we stayed here. The owner said the campground property is 1600 acres so the state park is not within walking distance. Fishing is popular so weekends you have a lot of visitors coming and going. You have access to at least a mile of river frontage for fishing. The office also has a small store with some food and fishing supplies. There are hot showers and the facilities are kept clean but they are older and run down. The sulfur spring is a neat feature to see and smell. I did not smell the sulfur smell in the campground area. The reason for a lower score is the 6 mile drive down a cliche gravel road. Everything will be covered in white dust when you arrive. There are a couple of steep grades but I was able to make it in a 38' fifth wheel without a problem. It's very scenic and peaceful once you get there. - RFamilyCamping

Stayed here for a few months while I was preparing to retire. The sites are concrete and level and plenty of room for big rigs. The staff is friendly and do their best to always help. Decent grass area for pets, although we still need to train those few owners to pick up after their pets.
There was a previous review about some people being here way too long and I agree with that. There is a 90 day waiver that doesn't seem to be enforced, and there are some trailers that have collected what I would call "junk" around them making the area appear as "trailer trash."
The location is easily accessible from 190 although you have to go through one side security gate only to turn around and come back through another. I would give this location a 10 if it were in a better location such as near a lake or beach. - Techn0

This is the second extended stay we have taken here. The long term sites are narrow and basic, pavement/gravel only and take some work leveling. The rate reflects the monthly amount for long term. The short term pull-thru sites are larger and have a grass, picnic tables, but not much shade like the long term. The shore power and hook-ups are all in good condition and the shower, bathroom and laundry are always in great shape. WiFi is available only in the reading room by the shower, with a range extender some spots might be able to pick it up. Would be a 10 except the dog walk area is only in the far corner of the pull-thru side and the WiFi is lacking. If you have pets expect to WALK the dog. The playgrounds are nice and grills are in good shape. Close to main post, PX, commissary as well as Copperas Cove which has everything you need restaurant and shopping wise. Closet full service RV shop is in Harker Heights 20 minutes east. $349 for back-in long term, $459 for pull-thru. The 60 day max stay can get extended indefinitely at the front desk. Will stay here again for a long term spot. - jangle

There are two sections of the campground. The sites in the older section are very close together with limited room between you and the neighbor. The newer section has 16 pull throughs with picnic tables on a concrete patio. There is plenty of elbow room in that section. Asphalt pads are the norm for both sections. Bath facilities are convenient for both sections, and there is a coin operated laundry. The cable is basic, but it is free. Satellite signal reception should not be a problem. Verizon 3G is strong. I was told that Wi-Fi is coming, but no date was given. There is a pet walk area, but a restriction on certain breeds is enforced. There is a convenience store within walking distance of the park. The campground is in the flight path of the airbase. You will have planes flying over head. Except for the security checkpoint procedure, this is a convenient campground if you’re going to be in the Killeen, Copperas Cove, or Ft Hood area. You must go through the commercial side of the Clarke Road gate for an inspection, and then you can go to the campground. If you don’t have a DoD decal on your tow or towed, you will not get back into the campground if you leave the base. The campground staff can brief you on procedures for getting a temporary visitor’s pass. - RLM

We stay here two times a year, spring and fall. This is a convenient and clean park. The city owns the facility which also has a pool and exercise equipment plus baseball fields. There are only a few sites, which are available on a first-come basis. They have several long term renters ($350/month including electricity) and, at any given time, there are only 4-5 sites open. This is the best choice for a Burnet stay with full hookups. - Judy H.

On the south end of town, right next to large recreation/pool center, not much shade (none). Right on highway, but still relatively quiet. Check in at rec. center by teens working for the summer and more interested in socializing with each other, so nothing explained/introduced. Never could get the cable TV hooked up, but everything else worked well. Good level, wide spaces and clean. Several good restaurants in the area (Maxican, Storms, Giovani's). We'd stop here again. - jpatt

We came here for a few nights and so far have stayed 3 months. There is a railroad directly beside campground but at least they do not blow horns. There is a four lane highway on other side but not terribly busy. We came here because in a golf magazine saying golf across street but it is actually 2.5 miles away. It is a very busy golf course. Most of the sites are occupied by construction workers that go to work around 5:30 a.m. They have no concern for other campers and slam doors and rev up motors. Then when they have finally left city park workers come to the city shed and of course they all start up chain saws, tractors, etc. On the plus side the sites are angled and we had an end site. Also, when you stay here you get full access to the health club next door which has 2 swimming pools and about any health club machine or activity you could imagine. There is a large area to walk in that is in the city park of which this park is part of. We had tornado warnings a few times and they have no provision for any place for campers to go. - full time betty

This park is a fantastic deal using Passport America. There are only a few sites on the water so we ended up staying close to the buildings. The sites are pull through and easy to get into. We chose our own as no one was in the office when we checked in. This seems to be an older campground with dirt/gravel roads. It rained the night we stayed which of course is no fault of the park but it made a huge mess of our site and rv. The pool was closed as expected this time of year. This is probably a very good park for summer fun and families. We were just passing through and it was kind of far off the highway for just that. There is a small recreation room with a sitting area, tv, some free DVD's to watch, and a book swap. - younglisa

Just sorry we could only stay one night. What a wonderful setting on Lake Buchanan! It looked like boating and swimming were available. Sites were easy to get into. It is a winding road of about 9 miles off the highway, but well worth the drive. - Joanne Sprott

Rate reflects Rally Rate for 40+ rigs. Park is easy to access off State Hwy 29, and is located on the southeast side of Lake Buchanan by the spillway of Buchanan Dam in Burnet, Texas. Easy check-in, but ensure they assign a site that fits your rig. Many sites have trees; all are fairly level gravel/sand combo with grass, some very near lake access. Very nice cabins. A few long-term RVers, who are neat and well maintained. Nice laundry and restroom/showers, with ADA-compliant access. Wi-fi is weak in spots, but solid at the clubhouse. Office has some emergency supplies. Full hookups (30 & 50 Amp) and easy connections; no cable and scant OTA reception (1 channel). We used the clubhouse for our rally which offered full kitchen, tables/chairs, and outside BBQ pits--very nice! They have VERY strict pet rules to protect all guests, so read those before your arrival. Website offers many discount options. Will definitely visit here again! - texasgal54
