Beautiful setting, very well kept. A golf course view and access. The hosts were very nice and very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great bar b cue at the Chisholm Trail in town! Only drawback was lack of cell, 3G, Internet service. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is an OK park. The campsites are nice, treed and well may maintained. The "stream view" is not much. Barely a stream - not enough for swimming or kayaking. Saw some people fishing. The toilets were good, but the showers were terrible. It's a good park for bicycling. Really, the best part about this park is its close proximity to Lockhart and the BBQ it is famous for. Be sure to go to Smitty's while you are there. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Tent.

What a jewel! Sweet 9-hole golf course, very well kept. Sites 4-7 offer fairway views. Nice pool for hot Texas afternoons. Most sites have shade trees. Nice hiking trail along the creek. Within 5 miles of really great Texas BBQ joints...yum! We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here with another family. We had sites 11 and 12 which gave us a large space along the creek. It was dried up so there wasn't any fishing, etc available. The kids did enjoy exploring the riverbed. I would certainly stay here again. The pool is a nice size. The park is close to town and the barbeque places that Lockhart is well known for.

Great state park. Golf course right across the access road. Each site had a covered picnic table and plenty of room. The river sites are not for big rigs as the trees have low branches and are extremely un level. The golf course circle sites are all long and level. Nice state park with full hookups. You do have to add the state park entrance fee to your site costs. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Motorhome.

A gem of a state park. Located on a 9 hole golf course. Very scenic and quiet. Close to town. Lots to do in the area. Utilities all worked well. Clean, well maintained park. Small and intimate. Made many friends among the other campers. We were here for 4 nights and hated to leave. May come back as a host someday. Wonderful place if you want quiet and calm. Great trails through out the park. Great BBQ restaurants nearby in the historic town. We'd stay here again. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were going to stay one night at this charming little state park and ended up begging for two more nights. Yes, it is one of only two parks in Texas with an actual 9 hole golf course in the park. The head ranger and staff were all incredibly friendly and accommodating to our needs. Golf is inexpensive and great for what it was, and there are plenty of areas to walk the dogs. The RV parking is divided into two areas, an older area for 10 tents and smaller rigs (not much grass), and a grassy "circle" area with pavement pads for backing in 10 large rigs, which haas full hook-ups and is much nicer. Some have views of the golf course, but all face out so have views other than each other. I did reservations on line with Texas Parks and I am sure this is a popular park. Will stay here again. Golf all day and BBQ at night, and located only about two miles from downtown. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Motorhome.

For the strangest of all reasons: we camped here for four nights and three of those nights we were the ONLY folks in sites 1-10. How totally bizarre. This RV park is in the middle of a nice 9 hole golf course. Even if you don't play golf, you can rent a golf cart for $11 for almost all day, to explore the golf course and part of the park. (They tell you to stay off the park roads, but no one really enforced that.) Check in was a breeze and they had some of the nicest girls in the world working the front desk. There is NO Wi-Fi and virtually NO cell signal. I had Verizon and my hotspot was really, really slow. I had one bar the entire time here, but the moment I left the park it went to four bars. My wife has T-Mobile and her hotspot only worked a couple of times. Sites 1-10 are full hookups with sewer: they are large sites. Sites 11-20 are electric and water only and next to a stream. You really need to have a small trailer to maneuver around the trees and stuff to get to the sites. There is a nice pool: it's about 3 feet to 11 feet deep. At one time there were 3 life guards and 6 of us swimmers. There is also a kiddie pool with a water spray fountain inside. Lockhart has the best BBQ in the world: it's only about 5 minutes from the park to this fantastic BBQ. Park has good water pressure. There are some nice trails, but they are sort of grown over so wear long pants if you go hiking. You can pick up about 16 local Austin and San Antonio channels over the air: 8 of them are in Spanish. Sites 1-10 are back in sites but are extremely wide, and very level. I had no problem backing in at all. Each site has a nice BBQ grill, fire pit, and a good covered picnic table. There is a good playground for the kids if you have smaller kids. The county prisoners ( easy to see as they are wearing the old fashioned, striped uniforms) clean the park and restrooms, and they repair things around the park. I was told that they have never had any issues with them at all. I would camp here again in a heartbeat We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

It was a rainy weekend but still a very nice experience. Sites 1 to 10 are large, paved, well separated, and easy to back into. Nice covered tables. Great family park with large open areas, pool, playground. 9 hole golf course for $11. Excellent over the air (no cable) TV. Smaller tent sites were well shaded and nicely located along creek. 7" rain last month caused wide spread creek flooding and blocked road, but 1" we had was not even noticed. Texas needs the rain! Great barbeque in town. $18 camping + $3 each daily admission. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Small park, clean, quiet, level asphalt site, small gravel areas, no dirt or dust, located on golf course, excellent park hosts/rangers. No Verizon data signal in the area. Blacks BBQ is the best! We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects the $6 day use fee. Very nice RV sites right on the 2nd fairway of the golf course. Sites are nicely spaced with very good electrical power and water pressure. Grass in the center of the loop is a little sparse since this area has not had very much rain this year. Golf course is in fair shape. Didn't get to meet the hosts as they never came around to say howdy. (We host in state parks and always try to greet new campers when they arrive at the park.) Great place to get away and relax. We would stay again. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great State Park. Very family friendly. Our dogs loved the dog park. A little hard to get into full utility sites. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Price paid reflects using the Texas State Parks annual pass with one 50% off coupon. Very nice park. Roomy, well-space sites and full hookups, including sewer (rare for Texas State Parks). Park is on a golf course. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Clean little state park just outside of Lockhart and convenient to San Marcos and Austin. Only has about 20 campsites total, so it's very quiet. The full hookup loop is adjacent to the golf course for those who like to play. It's important to note that while the park has pull-through sites, these ARE NOT full-hookup sites. The full-hookups are back ins as described by previous reviewers. We got a nice, shady little site on the Fairway View loop and stayed for a week. I enjoyed the beautiful, star-filled skies at night and viewing all the structures within the park built by the CCC in the 30s. While you are in town, be sure to have some BBQ. It's practically a local ordinance that you do! The downside: no Wi-Fi and the park is just outside of 3G range. If you rely on your Internet, be prepared to GO SLOW!

Sites 1-10 are in a "wagon wheel" arrangement, and they have full hookup. A few short trees in the area, not many. Fire pits are located all towards the center of the "wheel" so if you're looking for semi-privacy here, you just won't get it. The "wheel" is set up for a driver-side backup, so putting your rig in your slot is easy. Also, every spot has a tropical shelter over it (i.e. a roof with no walls) so there is a way to stay out of the sun/rain. That's a nice feature you don't see very often. The pull through sites are the "U off the side of the road" types. As is typical of older Texas state parks, the U is short and has a steep entry/exit angle. I think there's only about 2-3 spots where I could fit my rig. It is nicely situated off the side of the stream though, and looks like it would be a great spot to camp -- if you can get in. These sites are water/electric only. Not a bad park, but I doubt we'd make it a destination. Would be great as a stopover park. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Travel Trailer.
