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. We camped at Mother Neff State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Look up the website for this park and explore all the amenities. Local attractions for hiking and outdoor activities with very knowledgeable park employees and a park host on site! Plan to spend two or three nights here as there is plenty to keep you interested and occupied. One of the best bargains out there for full hookups and amenities available.

We had a full hookup site with 50 amp electric. The park is not large, and the best part, near the river was closed and still flooded from rains earlier in the month. But it is a well kept park. We camped at Mother Neff State Park in a Motorhome.

Waco is nearby. There are lots of restaurants and plenty of shopping there. We went to the Magnolia Market, which is owned by the stars of Fixer-Upper, on HGTV.

Beautiful park! We were only there only one night but everything was nice, new and very clean. Campsites were excellent - easy to get into and set up. Only concern would be a summer trip - not many sites with shade trees. Picnic table at each site that sits in a large cleared area with some type of crushed granite. Roads were nice and paved and pads are level and paved. Can't say enough about this beautiful park! We camped at Mother Neff State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Recently renovated (Jan 2015), the campsites are spacious and easy to get into (at least 6 were pull-through). This is a quaint, family friendly park with helpful, hospitable staff and a beautiful new headquarters. The various hiking trails (and geocaching!) are easy to moderate (at least for our family with younger children) but well worth it. No Wi-Fi , but AT&T cell service was fine. Unfortunately, the recent flooding caused the fishing and swimming areas to be closed so we cannot comment on those. We would certainly stay here again. We camped at Mother Neff State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of Texas' earliest state parks so there is some history to it. The new renovation earlier this year resulted in a great campground. Access roads are paved and RV pads are concrete. Each has a nice stone patio area with picnic table and fire pit. On the left side of each pad is a stone covered pathway that makes it easy to get out your hookup equipment. There a few crescent shaped pull thrus, but back in's are fairly easy to get into. Utilities were good. 50A service voltage was good despite running two ac units; although, I was there mid-week when it wasn't crowded. There are picnic pavilions, a playground area, and nice bath house with ADA showers. There is a separate grass/treed tent camping area and dish washing station. Someone with RV experience put some thought into this project! There is hiking, and occasionally Ranger lead. Fish from the river that runs in the park. And, you do not need a fishing license to fish in a state park. As with all state parks, there is an additional per day entrance fee, but this one is cheap at $2. We camped at Mother Neff State Park in a Motorhome.

Small town of Moody is about 5-6 miles away. Not a tourist area, but there are grocery stores, food places, and gas stations.

Mother Neff State Park has had major improvements. In January 2015 a new entrance and headquarters were opened. On 2/3/15 a new 20 site camping loop opened with full hook-ups (50/30/20 electric, water and sewer) at each site. Wide, level concrete pads for RV and large crushed granite patios at each site. Some of the nicest sites we've ever seen. The new area is at the opposite end of the park from the old camping area which was prone to flooding. The old sites re still there and can be used. We camped at Mother Neff State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A very small park. There are 6 or 7 spaces here, all of which are quite shady. We shared the entire park with two other campers. It's very quiet here and when it gets dark, it gets dark! We are talking advanced darkness. Best night's sleep yet. Deer, raccoon, and squirrel are abundant. The sunrise and sunset were astounding. Tight turn at the dump station, though. I had to unhook the anti-sway bar to get out of there. Park personnel were very friendly. We camped at Mother Neff State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Even though the bathhouse is still not functioning after the flood a few years ago and there is little to no TV reception we give this park a 10! We got our 38 foot motorhome in a space without any difficulty. Some of the road signs state the park is only open for day use but we called the park and they stated they are open for camping. Beautiful trees, secluded, peaceful, quiet with only the birds, owls and wildlife to watch. Lovely hiking trails. Original CCC buildings to enjoy. We camped at Mother Neff State Park in a Motorhome.

Great hiking around park! No stores nearby. This park gets bad floods regularly so currently has no bathrooms, showers, sewer, or electricity. Water was available. Only a couple of sites were usable as winds had caused trees to fall on others. Definitely call ahead to see what is available! Verizon EVDO Internet service worked well for an air card in this area. We camped at Mother Neff State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Quiet, peaceful park. Very clean and the rangers are great. It's right on a river but it's kind of hard to get down to fishing level. Nice walking trails and some interesting history. Mother Neff State Park is the first Texas state park to be built. No sewer hookups but there is a dump station easily available in the park. We camped at Mother Neff State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful, quiet, country state park near Temple/Belton area. Bird watching, hiking trails, small playground and pavilion for group gatherings. Nightly rate does not include entrance fee. Bath-house is clean but needs updating. We will return. We camped at Mother Neff State Park in a Motorhome.
