43 Parks near New Braunfels, Texas

The daily rate posted reflects the rate we paid with two children. Obviously there are add-ons to their quoted rate of $35. The campground is mostly caliche, so when the wind blows there is fine white dust everywhere. There is one utility box for every two campsites, and there is one 30-amp and one 50-amp outlet per box. If there are two 50 or two 30-amp rvs side by side, one of you will have to get an adapter from the office (no fee). Also, one of you will be on the wrong side, so you'll have to sling your hose and cable under your RV to hook up. This is not a bad little park. The folks are friendly and the grounds are clean. There are many other sites on this part of the Guadalupe; if we go back, we'll likely try a different camp. - K Graham

Stayed here tree nights with our dogs. All sites are on the water with direct access from your back (or front) yard...depending which way you park. Water is shallow, we set our chairs and pop up tent in the water and enjoyed some summertime music and beer and watched the tubers float by. Families were here with children too. Awesome visit. Look forward to visiting here again! They don't have sewer hook up, but do have a dump station near office. - mh2013

Billy Goat's Gruff is horrible!!!! It is some stupid old grumpy woman’s back yard. It is not even a real camp ground. She stuck some window units in her sheds and calls them cabins. What a joke! Not one of the camp sites is right on the river like she will promise. We were going to camp there the weekend of August 1st, 2009. We got there and she was already mad because we arrived at 11 am. She says “Check in is not until 2:30, but I guess I could let you in.” This is here stupid backyard we are talking about; really, when does her yard close or open? We arrived and she was freaking out because the other person in our party had a pop-up camper; I had call her the Friday before and told her we were changing the tent site to a pop-up. I also had mentioned that we might have some other people showing up the next day and they would pay when they got there. She started to freak out and tell me, my wife and my friend that we were liars and to leave. She said she was going to call the police on us and my 3 small children (1, 3, and 4 year old.) ? I told her we would leave if she gave us our money back; she freaked out again and went in the house. We were promised 2 camp sites right on the river with water and electricity, not camping in some crazy lady’s backyard. She also told us, when asked about not being right on the river, “if you are too lazy to walk down to the river, you don’t need to be here. Camp at your own risk. There are many other places to camp; do not try here. Ask psycho woman for a picture of the “grounds” from the back of here house, you will see what I am talking about. I doubt she has any repeat campers. - julieab1

I have been going to the river for 25 years. I have camped at almost everysite except this was our first time and last to camp at KL Ranch camp. I made our reservatons months in advance. We camped in site 94 which was right on the river. The view was beautiful but the camping experience was terrible. There is one road in and the same road out and it is not paved. There is a constant cloud of dust and dirt in the air. The campsites are not mowed or groomed and the tender trees are dried up and starving for a drink of water. The bathrooms are the most disgusting filthy bathrooms I have ever seen. We used our utility shower and other means of toileting and stayed clear of the restrooms. This is not for famillys as we had hoped it is all about getting drunk and bad language. When returning from dinner one night,they had locked the gate and we could not get back into our campsite. We drove around and around untill someone finally came and opned the locked gate so we could get into our site. They proceded to remind us that the gates lock at 10;30. We had returned at 11;00. I have never been locked in a camping area and don't intend to ever be again. Campers beware. The river is beautiful it's a shame greedy people have access to it, who are not putting any money or care into the camping end of it. - alltoheaven

This park is located on the Comal River. There are sites on the river and up on the hill. Wifi was great on the hill, didn't try it by the river. Cable tv was great. Road conditions are terrible. All the employees were amazing, except for the asst manager (older white man). We asked for a picnic table, one was delivered asap. One night late, we started laundry and next day, went to dry it and the laundry was accidentally locked, so we couldn't get in. The maintenance man dried our laundry and folded and put it at our site while we were off at the river. One lady in the office is super nice as well as the other lady in the office. They had just redone the restrooms and showers and they were excellent.
There is an awesome pavilion on the hill over looking the river. We really enjoyed sitting there and relaxing. They do have some permanent residents. We meet some of them and they were really nice. I would say that weather and the older man were our only issues. If you want to do the Comal trip, be sure to get back on the river by 4-4:30, a few minutes late and you are floating again. The weather was terrible the entire week we were here, and I would have appreciated if that grumpy old man would have just been 15 minutes more flexible. Other than that, we will stay again, will avoid his non customer service self and enjoy another trip. If you rent the pavilion, they have a great smoker that you can use. The washer and dryers are very convenient as well. Get a pull thru site if you have a long trailer, we had to move the last night and had issues backing into spot with our 30 ft trailer. - Cypressaggie

40 ft RV and toad. Had to disconnect so the toad did not stick out in the road. No Wi-Fi detected. Great restaurants in the area. Did not use public bathrooms. Just a basic place to stay overnight and not fancy or any amenities. People come to float the river in inner tubes. Yes trains are fifteen to sixty yards away. Run the a/c fan to screen the noise or stay down by the river. - Navychop

Horrible, horrible, horrible is the only word to describe this campground (if anyone would even call this a campground!)!! First of all it is in a horrible location in New Braunfels, TX. You have to drive all over the city to get down into the area where they are located (WARNING: there is a bridge that only has an 11FT clearance on the way to the park)! It took us over 2 hours to FIND the place then another 3 hours trying to find someone to help us set up a reservation! Finally once someone did come to "help" (a Workamper that had NO CLUE what she was talking about) she couldn't answer most of our questions! She flip flopped her stories about how much the rate was per night then couldn't answer us on how much a monthly rate was. They don't offer a weekly rate. After she stared at her computer screen, which seemed for hours, she finally told us we owe $60 for TWO nights during OFF season! I then explained that we only wanted TWO nights (like I originally stated) but for some reason she just couldn't figure out on her calendar of how to change the dates! Then her rate she quoted us first was $15/night then jumped up to $20/night! A Wal-Mart parking lot is MUCH more pleasant than this place. There are SEVERAL LOUD TRAINS that go blaring past the park - VERY VERY LOUD and constant...all day...all night! I could post more but I think you get the drift of what this place is. Keep in mind this place does flood! On a positive note it is located on Comal River. Crystal clear water and excellent for tubing and fishing. There are many beautiful campgrounds in this area of Texas - this just so happens to NOT be one of them. The people there (that live there and work there) are very rude and not helpful! Move on down the road and give your money to a campground that wants to welcome you with open arms! I normally would never post anything negative or rude but I believe that people need to be aware of the truth! - Legacy

Great place to stay. Very clean and great scenario. Full hookups. Staff was friendly. Had quite a few winter birds staying there but everyone was friendly. We loved our stay and will stay again without a doubt. River is right there and was able to hear it when we sat outside. Deer was around when we drove up and down river road. - George Faust

Nice, quiet place on the river; country setting, friendly campers and staff. No cable TV , so a dish is nice to have. River is stocked with trout. Will stay here again - Farmer45

We have a 44' RV and it is a bit difficult to maneuver. It is not really designed for rig’s that large. It is mostly a tent camping place. It is very dusty. The sites are dirt and grass. The sites closer to the water have shade. The big field for tents does not. They have small cabins available for rent, but I never saw inside of them, and do not know the cost. For the RV, we paid $15/person/night. In addition to that, they charge for water and electricity, I think it is $5/night. We do not utilize the restrooms, but I know they have free showers, and sometimes there is a line on busy weekends. There is a bar on-site, and a grill on the weekends. They also have live bands outdoors at night on the weekends. It is a party atmosphere each time we have been here. You can buy ice on site, $3/bag. You can rent tubes ($15/per person, rent 3, get the 4th on free) here. They will shuttle you, or you can get in the water here and float to a pick-up point. You can sit in chairs or tubes/rafts in the water and not float if you choose to do so. They have a sand volleyball area. I do not recall seeing any other play areas for children. If there is a problem with unruly guests, you just go to the office and report it, and they will take care of it! We saw that first hand this weekend. They have a dog painted in their logo, floating in a tube, which is misleading because they do not allow pets. They do, however, have a resident cat. There are containers everywhere for you to recycle beer/soda cans. I believe a couple of the sites have fire pits. - SmileyInFrswd

This is more a tent campers place. I have tent camped here many times and this was the first time I took my travel trailer here. It was very difficult to maneuver and park, luckily I had rented an additional spot for some friends that were tent camping. The road to the RV sites is one lane wide and like I said does not allow for easy parking. The showers are free and there is always a party atmosphere, lots of people cutting from the parking lot through our campsite to their camp site or the river. I have a long bed, quad cab truck with a bumper pull travel trailer. Others also had a difficult when it came time to pull out, one in a 5'er and the other in a large bus type RV. - FrogDog26

I like this campground. It is nice during the week. The weekends always are crowded so we try to avoid those days. If you have a large trailer some of the sites at the end are very hard to manuver into and out. Bring an extension cord/water hose, as if you back your trailer into site, the hookups are at the front. Camp Hosts are friendly and helpful. Good place to stay on the river. - TEXASBOY

This was our first time camping along the Guadelupe River. In this park, most of the sites are right on the river - terrific view! Most of the sites have shade and are level. The staff are friendly. For kids, there is not much to do at this park other than float in the river, however, Canyon Lake is close and San Antonio and some state parks are less than an hour away. There is also a camp store, which came in handy. The sites are not too close together, but most of the even numbered sites do not have the electric/water hook-ups on the right side. This means you need an extension cord for power and another hose - and you have these hoses/cords all over the campsite. Luckily, we were able to borrow one from the office, since we didn't have any. We stayed over Labor Day weekend, and there were a lot of families, but also people who really wanted to party (loud music until late). Guess this is to be expected on a holiday weekend. There are no full hook-ups and only one dump station, so make sure you leave early on the day you head out. - User1960

We have been camping on the Guadalupe River for 30 years and have camped here for the past 13. We wanted a more family oriented campground when our kids began bringing our grand kids camping. We love this campground. It is the best location on the river. Almost half the sites are directly on the river and the rest are right across the camp road from it. From one end to the other the camp has rapids, slower deep water, and a wonderful natural gravel beach area for family fun with small children. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful beyond what should be expected. The camp is kept clean and the bathrooms are cleaned at least twice daily. Loud, rowdy campers are warned, then sent packing if they can not maintain a decent manner and the quiet time of 10 p.m. is enforced. There is a small store right next door and also an outfitter so all the basics are in walking distance. We would not stay anywhere else, nor would our kids and all the many friends who have camped with us over the years. They have a good number of tent sites with electricity and the bulk of the sites have both water and electricity. Dogs under 15 pounds are allowed in campers but no dogs are allowed in tents. The only negative is that they have such a steady clientele it is hard to get a weekend reservation during the summer. Fourth generations of families are still camping here. They must be doing something right. - bettyboop4

We stayed here for a week which reflects the rate plus $3 a day for cable. We originally chose to stay in the area to visit Austin and San Antonio, but it was still too far for both. The sites are gravel pull thru with your door facing a neighbor, but plenty of space between. Plenty of grass areas to walk pets and watch the deer come around at sunset. There is access to the river for fishing which many campers do, but none of the sites are actually on the river. Utilities were fine with ideal placement for connections. The pool was not open this time of year, so not much at the camp as far as activities. There are rest rooms which are also used by non campers that come to fish and could use some work. Very basic place 12 miles off the highway which made a long drive to the cities to do anything. If we return to the area we would probably stay closer to the city. - pfogleboch

Restrooms as mentioned leave a lot to be desired but the rest of the park is great! Long sites well spaced. Lots of shade (can make it hard to get satellite). Very nice and helpful staff. Fully stocked store. Pool perfect temperature. Right on the river and they offer river rafting right there with shuttle to drop you off up the river and float back down to campground. RV storage behind it. Good burgers at a stand nearby as well as car wash and laundromat off site. - Katrina

We stayed here to attend the Wimberley Flea Market. The park was clean and quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful. Pets are allowed during certain months. If traveling with friends, most sites face each other. Check the weather. In February it can get very cold, our water hose froze. We still had a great time and would camp here again. - captwink

The park is under the Interstate, so although there is highway noise, it was white noise for us and didn't affect our stay here. The park is clean and staff were friendly and helpful. You are about 10 minutes away from historic Greune. - dbfay

This really is an excellent campground, small, & slightly tight, but not bad. Sites are concrete pads & level. Nice river view. The only reason I gave it 5 stars, is that it's right under I-35 and VERY noisy with the traffic. I had to sleep with ear plugs in. Might stay here again, but will look for something quieter. - olcoon

Stayed here many times. Stayed in the premium spaces next to water. Great location, premium spot is exceptional. New owner and new management. This is a good thing. - SBJ

We stayed here for 2 nights. In and out very tight in a 45 foot motorhome, but doable. They made sure I was free of trees for sat reception. I was a bit afraid of scratches from trees, but they were trimmed nicely. Very strong wi fi which surprised me. We didn't use restrooms or laundry, but everything looked quite clean. Power was acceptable, although had to run gen when stove, oven and A/C all running at same time. - rdkpotter

The park actually has a lot of potential, but just needs to pay attention to some details. It has been operating under a time share type membership until recently so their business model has changed. There are a lot of amenities--pools, mini golf, etc. which are nice if you have a family. It's also at the end of river road so you don't have the party scene like some other places on river road. The campground and cabins are separate, so you either have a long walk or a short car ride to get to mini golf and one of the pools.
The roads going into the campground need some work; some pot holes and stuff that make it a rough ride. Also, believe they are short staffed as we asked about getting the grass cut, and were told they would try. Two weeks and no cutting!! - TheRestlessYoungs

We have stayed here many times over the past few years and have watched the park go from a pleasant place to a profit only motivated park. We have stayed our last time here and will never return.
The pools and restrooms facilities are nice, but that is the only good thing I can say.
Don't be deceived by the pictures on the website. Unless you are one of their favored members or friends, they will stick you in the back on a lot of crushed rock with no grass or shade and very tight space. Make reservations first and if they tell you the only site you can have is 62 - 77, pass this park by and go to Walmart. Walmart provides a nicer area then these. The ONLY nice areas are in the older section at the front of the park.
This park is in a valley and because of the surrounding hills, there is NO cell coverage (despite what the website says). No TV coverage either. Wi-Fi is a hit and miss when it is up, it is extremely weak and more often than not, it is down. Before I checked it this time, I had been reassured that the problems with Wi-Fi had been resolved. - not so.
Website states that they have a snack bar - not so. They have closed it down with no plans to reopen.
The main person at the front desk that you have to deal with to make site selection is very rude.
There are other parks in the area that offer a better value. - User3755
