25 RV Parks near Moody, Texas

Although we camp hosted at Mother Neff, I simply have to share my experience of this park. People might overlook Mother Neff because it's small, at around 250 acres. But that would be a mistake. The juniper/cedar prairie-setting campground is one of the nicest we've seen anywhere. All sites are level, or very close to level. Sites 3 and 5 have shade from later afternoon sun and shaded picnic tables. Sites 14, 16 and 17 have some shaded areas from midday sun. Site 17 is a short walk to the beautiful bathhouse. Site 3 isn't far. But there are paths from all areas of the campground that lead to the bathhouse. All pull-through sites are suited for big rigs. Most afford good satellite view. Sites 9, 11, 13, and 20 have full sun. For those who enjoy hiking, take off down the Wash Pond Trail or Cave Trail and into another world. A spring fed stream feeds into the pond, which is crystal clear. The trees are much larger than those on the prairie. You'll hear and see dozens of different kinds of birds. In the early evening, you may see rabbits or deer grazing in open areas of the prairie. The park rangers and staff could not be nicer. They are proud of their park and work hard to ensure that it is well cared for. They truly want customers to have a great experience while visiting Mother Neff. There are occasional rocket tests at Space-X and artillary booms at nearby Fort Hood, but those occasional happenings don't really distract from the beauty, peace and tranquility of Mother Neff State Park. And one day, when the log jam in the Leon River is cleared out and the flooding ceases, the river bottom campground might be reopened and you will be able to experience yet another aspect of the beauty of Mother Neff. In the mean time, though, treat yourself to a camping experience at this little gem of a park. You won't regret it! - MelBtraveln

This SP was completely renovated just over a year ago and the Park is in superior condition. Not only is the Park in great condition, the Park Rangers and Hosts were friendly and especially helpful. It is a quieter SP as compared to some of the large CGs, which is very nice for relaxing and enjoying the quiet. Visitors should know that you can hear distant artillery fire from Fort Hood throughout the day and every once in awhile the testing of rocket engines at another facility. - Jim Butler

Employees are extremely gracious and helpful! Best service and reception I have had in many stays in State Parks. Arrived just as they had locked up the office and was told to find a spot I liked and take care of paperwork in the morning. Park host and three other campers were all that were here for the night, so very quiet and peaceful.
Brand new facility with concrete pads, long wide pads for your rv, 50 amp power, sewer drops and plenty of water. First time for me at this State Park but will not be my last! Several area attractions for hiking and sightseeing that we just did not have time for as this was an intermediate stopover. I will make it a destination very soon because of the nice folks and comfortable feel of the place. Best State Park accommodations I have run across yet. - Alley_Oop

We stayed here for 14 days. The park staff was very nice, friendly, and helpful. Park was very well maintained, all facilities were clean, and bathrooms somewhat hot, but it's July in Texas. Very nice view of the Lake. Park host was out and about day and night. He kept the park in good order, quiet. Wildlife, deer, birds, armadillo, one fox, feral cats were in the park on quiet days. Lots of tents and boats on weekends, but for the most part, were well mannered! Will be back for sure. - CitizensReflect

The park has asphalt roads and pads. None of the 32 pads are level but they do accommodate the largest rigs, if you don't mind having to back in.
Spacing between sites is nice, it allows a private and community feel.
The park is pet friendly with a $100 non-refundable pet deposit. It is also kid friendly.
Some sites have a picnic table and some have a tree that is still living. Sites have grass which is green during rains. No watering of yards is allowed per management. Lawns are regularly maintained as well as the small bath and laundry facility. 1 women's, 1 men's, and 1 washer dryer.
The park is best for long term stays and as an alternative when the lakeside parks are full.
This is my second long term stay and the park was better when it first opened. Overall the park isn't bad just some interesting management practices. But managing such a large RV park means growing pains for the person in charge. - KYoung

Friendly staff at entrance station. Nice wide roads and parking pads. Extra parking spot at each site for an extra vehicle. Nice spacing between most of the sites. Some are shaded and some have full sun. Nice sturdy shelter over each picnic table. Most sites are level. Some sites have a view of the lake and some don't. Electric service was good. Water pressure was 100 PSI so be sure to take your regulator. There is a hiking trail but the trail head is located in a group camping area and if that area is in use, they will not let you use the trail! We saw lots of deer and one turkey. - BrentB

Another great COE park. Sites were large and there was hardly anyone else around. Water level in the lake is way down, but it's still an attractive setting. Security gates weren't always in use which reduced site security but this may have been because of the small number of campers. - docj

I can't say enough about this park. We had one of two pull thru's (70' long, I think). Paved, large gravel area next to coach with covered picnic table, fire ring. Deer all over the place. We initially booked for two nights and I immediately booked two additional. Large spacious sights. Price reflects the Senior Pass, otherwise it's $22/night. Highly recommend this park! One of my favorites so far! - Dutch Star 40

We wanted a quick on and off I-35 going north. While the lady at the desk was very nice, it was clear the owner couldn't care less about the park. Keys were not available for showers, mostly permanent residents, apparently I-35 will be widened at some point taking over the camp, so there is no effort to improve. Next time we will keep driving. - balfre1946

First time here and will be back. Stayed 3 nights and would stay longer next time. Site needed a little leveling side to side but front to back was level. Very nice young man at the gate. Gave us a map with all the open sites. Great clean updated restrooms. Some helicopter noise fromantic Ft. Hood. Walmart about 15 minutes away. Great neighbors and even greater weather. Was told that weekends are already booked for the summer. Try this place, you will like it. - mdmnkcm

We were in a 30 amp for the first 14 days it worked for us. Showers restrooms were close by. Plenty of shade a lot of trees. - Al74-

Nice, quiet park that is hard to beat for the price. Some ongoing renovation so some sites where blocked off. Would definately stay here again. - rockhill

This was a good find for our needs as we were in the area to visit relatives getting medical care. We were right on the lake in a pull through. They do let you drain your gray water on the ground which is nice. The rate reflects the America the Beautiful Senior Pass. Water pressure and 50 amp voltage was very good. We would stay here again. It is a Corps of Engineers Park. You are close to Belton, Temple and not that far from Killeen and the Fort Hood Army Base so there are plenty of shopping opportunities. - zrxh14

There are three different campgrounds in this recreation area. This military park is huge and it sits on the shoreline of an equally huge Corp of Engineer lake. Just about every water sport and boating activity is supported at this facility. It is super family friendly because kid's playground equipment is plentiful and there are other "sport fields" on site. Fee based horseback riding is available, natures trails are abundant, and one can bike the place until you are exhausted. It is "pet friendly" in that two of the three CGs are in the woods. The three campgrounds are BLORA RV Park, Deer RV Park, and Cedar RV Park. If you have a "big" rig, as I do, then I would suggest Deer Park because it has 50 amp service and half of the sites are FHU. However, if you choose it and absolutely need satellite reception, I would suggest getting a site that is on the left side in order to avoid a tree blocking issue. With the exception of the tent only sites, the pads of each park are concrete. Almost every site in this huge recreational facility as a covered picnic table, fire ring, and a charcoal BBQ grill. I would estimate that about a third of the sites in all three CGs have a minor front to back leveling issue for longer rigs. Cedar Park has a designated tent only area. Deer RV Park has tent sites mixed with RV sites. Although, they were nice, none of the bath/restroom facilities in each CG are conveniently located in the middle of the campgrounds. I consider the lack of close by trash cans and bath houses a negative. Both of those are what I consider a "hike" to get to. This facility honors the America The Beautiful card. - RLM

Rate reflects half-price national park pass. We stayed in the upper pull-through section near the road, and it was a bit noisy from the highway as others have said. For us it was worth it to have the full hookups, since we stayed a week. The campground is on the smaller side for a COE, and it seems popular for the boat launch and fishing. There were a few tent campers, and on the weekend the place filled up. My main complaint about the restrooms and showers is that although it seemed they hosed them down, they didn't then clean out the drain, which ran along the wall behind the toilets. People kept propping the door open, which allows all the bugs to come inside, and there were plenty! Of course, the bigger beetles like to hang out on the trash that was stuck in the drain! Yuck. There was only one sink, no counter, no mirror, no paper towels and the dryer didn't work. No hooks to hang a towel from. Didn't use the showers, especially after I saw a giant spider heading that direction. The park is convenient to shopping and not far from downtown Waco, but if you want quiet you may want to check out other COE campgrounds on other parts of the lake. A note for those with very tall rigs - when approaching from the east, you exit and go under a 14' bridge under the highway to get on the other side where the park is. If you're concerned about that at all, you can go all the way across the water and come back, and then you'll exit right at the campground entrance. - Denise and Glenn

We love stopping at COE parks! They are lovely and we enjoy being near water. This one is on Waco Lake. Check in was smooth and easy. There are a number of pull throughs and they are closer to the highway but we chose that instead of one closer to the lake for convenience. The hookups were toward the back of the site so there wasn't enough room to leave the car hooked up. We were spending 2 nights and touring Waco so that wasn't a big problem. We just couldn't hook it up the night before to be ready to go. Our motorhome is well insulated so the road noise didn't bother us. If you have an America the Beautiful Pass, the price can't be beat! This is a small park so make your reservations early! - webbsafari

Had one of the full hookup pull thru sites closer to highway. Very nice site just a little tight on turns but ok for 65 total length. - what next

Our stay at Flat Creek Farm was by happenstance. All our first choice campgrounds, which were COE on Lake Waco, were closed due to flooding. We were able to snag a few nights at Flat Creek Farm but not as many as we wanted. The campgrounds that were not closed due to flooding were booked pretty solid from taking in all us displaced campers.
Power was excellent, water pressure good, Verizon service was strong and the campground WiFi was so-so. Even with a WiFi booster it was tough to stay connected. A couple of times I had to give up and switch to my jetpack to complete what I was doing.
Previous posts talk about the odd parking arrangements. We had one of these and it had the nose of our 5th wheel really close to the nose of our neighbor's 5th wheel. Luckily our neighbor was on a monthly plan and only there on weekend days, so we only saw them on the day of our arrival.
Landscaping is well done and cared for. Sites are gravel and level with grassy space between neighbors on the camper door side. No fire pit, no grill and no table. And they are very protective of their grass, no mats are allowed. Really nothing is allowed on the grass.
The office was not staffed the entire time of our three day stay. They were good at responding to the over-the-web registration and when I called the phone number I was given on my check-in email, they answered promptly.
Not as affordable as a COE campground but very nice. I would stay here again if lower cost options are not available. - jperry29

The park is mostly permanent resident, but to us that's not a problem if it's clean and this one is. The only downgrade is you have to do reservations via internet, never saw the owners or hosts, but no problems. Kind of odd setup with side by side pull this, but they generally work OK. Overall nice park. Moving to this area so probably will stay here again. - 7 on the road
