Small park. Best sites are 1-10 as they have full hook-ups and are level, but they are in a close circle. Sites 11-20 have water and electric and are now paved, but they all slant toward the parallel creek. Many of the 11-20 sites are pull through - meaning the RV leans from one side to the other downhill toward the creek. Verizon yielded only 1 bar. Free wifi only so-so. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Motorhome.

This is an excellent park. We stayed one night in site #4 (back-in with full hook ups) which is right along the golf course. There is also a very nice pool and playground. We had full LTE service via AT&T, but did not try the OTA or satellite for TV. This is a superb location for exploring all the great bbq restaurants in Lockhart as well as the shopping, eateries, and entertainment in San Marcos. We definitely look forward to returning for a longer stay. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Play a round of golf on the adjacent, 9 hole city course. Feast on excellent bbq at Black's, Kreuz Market, Smitty's, or Chisolm Trail. Shop the outlets in San Marcos (about 30 mins away).

Arrived on a Saturday with a reservation and told to go to the campground, find a site and return before 6 PM to complete the registration. Very nice campsites with plenty of room. Good 50 amp electric and water pressure however, at times the pressure went down to nothing for a short time. Happened when my wife was taking her shower and that ain't good. Verizon cell service is pretty much non existent most of the time. Our Jetpack got 1 bar of 4g but on our Sleek the signal increased to 3 bars. There is no WiFi out here.We didn't use the facilities but when I looked there were clean but a little dated. In site 10 we were able to get a DTV signal with no problem. The town of Lockhart is all about barbecue. We went to Keuz Market and the brisket was excellent but we found the port ribs to be a little dry. We didn't like their potato salad at all. Next time we'll go to Black's. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Motorhome.

This place is on a golf course, and I see why it is desirable to live on a gold course. All of the grass is mowed to be pretty and pleasant. No fire ants.

Only 20 sites at the state park. 10 are very nice with asphalt driveways, 50 amp, sewer, but also - each site had a SMOKER and a fire ring and a paved picnic area with shelter.

We had already gone shopping, but went back to walmart to get some stuff to grill!

They had no security lights, which meant that at night you could see every. single. star. Beautiful.

The downside is -
Campsites are a long walk to the playground and guard shack.
Spotty cell service. We were able to get messages on and off. Mostly nothing.
A little wifi at the main office. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Motorhome.

It's a beautiful, well-maintained state park with a swimming pool, public 9-hole golf course, and small campground. There are 10-sites with full hookup and 10-sites with water and electric. It was very quiet there and we saw many deer and wild turkeys wandering across the fairway in front of our camp site. The nightly rate of $21 does not include a $3/day per person state park entry fee. Still a great price at $27/day for a FHU site. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Motorhome.

Lockhart, population 13,000, is the BBQ capital of Texas. We tried all four BBQ restaurants and were not disappointed. We were truly impressed with architecture of the county courthouse built in 1894 and the library built in 1898.

I generally always like Texas State Parks for camping, and this small park is in Lockhart where there is great BBQ. Other than a little 9 hole golf course (which I would have played had we been there longer) there is not much to do at the park. There are short trails so no good hiking. But the park is small and quiet, and I saw fishing and playground opportunities for young families. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great state park. We camped in the Fairway view loop which we liked as it is shaped like a wheel with a large grassy center. There is lots of room for family activities. Also a great view of the golf course. This park is loaded with amenities from hiking trails to playgrounds to the pool to a 9 hole golf course. We didn't use the bath facilities so I can't rate them. The sites along Clear Fork Creek are for smaller rv's or tents. As this is a state park there is also a $3 per person per day entrance fee unless you have a State Parks Pass ($70 annual). The pool charges $2 per person if you are staying in the park. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The 50A full hook-up loop is a wagon wheel and all back-ins. The 30A sites might pose problems for large RV's. Nearby restaurants and fuel. We would stay here again. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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.

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.
