This is the 4th time we been at this park and once again we had a wonderfull time.
we camped in the RV section on the river side of the park, the sites are double wide on the river side and provide plenty of room for parking which is not the case if you stay on the road side of the camp ground. the sites were clean when we arrived and the staff was more than helpful.
We did not use the showers or bath house so I can not comment.
The views of the river are fantastic at this park which is why we love it. It does get very crowded on the weekend so if that bothers you then this place is not for you.
I would have rated it a 10 but the trash that the tent campers left down by the riverside tent sites was not cleaned up at least 24 hours.
We stayed here in a travel trailer and we will return again. We camped at Camp Huaco Springs in a Travel Trailer.
We camp here once a year and each year the experience is a little different due to management. We had a flood alarm that started at 5:30am in the morning and was not turned off until after 8:00am, needless to say we were up at 5:30am. Our site required 2 inches of leveling on one side. The electricity and water pressure were both consistent. The park employees are friendly but not very effective at rule enforcement. The tent area and day use areas have trash all over the ground and the employees drive around in golf carts and pick and choose what they pick up or not. Trash cans are also overflowing on the weekends and left that way until Monday. Several park guest are drunk, loud, rowdy, lewd, and are a public nuisance, especially if you are their neighbor. The good thing about this CG, it's on the river with full hook-ups with decent sized sites. We will camp here again. We camped at Camp Huaco Springs in a Fifth Wheel.

Where to begin. Our first night we had to listen to an alarm all night long from their water pumps across the road. Even though we informed them many times when we first arrived (before the office closed), they didn’t get someone to unlock the barbed wired fence to reset the alarm to stop the noise until noon the next day. All posted rules are not enforced. Their pet rule is that dogs are only allowed if they are under 30 pounds. There were dogs over 100 pounds in several campsites! Quiet hours were never enforced. Every night we had to hear our neighbors partying into the wee hours. Sometime during their partying they drove their golf cart over our sewer hose. The picnic table at our site was carved up and wobbly. Looked like something out of the projects. The restrooms were so filthy that words could not describe it! They make state park restrooms look like a palace. Everyday trash was overflowing in all the trashcans, mostly from beer cans and liquor bottles. A camper across from us had a cooler full of beer stolen one night. I guess they were not interested in our water bottles and soda. There is not a camp host on site, so when the office is closed all staff leave. The only contact number left in cases of emergency is the local law enforcement. It is really sad! This could be a fantastic campground, but the owner has let it go. I blame the owner since they were obviously the one who hired the staff. My understanding is the owner of the campground also owns the Rockn’ R River Rides. That might explain why they prefer the drunken party crowds at their campground. If you want to hear more reviews check out their Facebook page. It will really let you know that this is a college type party campground. We will not be camping here again. We camped at Camp Huaco Springs in a Motorhome.
This was the only full hook up campground we could find on the river. Sites are nice and wide. We got a site on the river and enjoyed making a fire on the riverbank. Kids enjoyed playing in the water all day. They have really nice springs that feed into the river that you can tube. Also nice shallow pools for floating. The springs are fast moving though. The store is very expensive for the things you need like tube rafts and ice. They charge $2 to blow up your raft with a compressor. Now let's talk about the bathrooms. Gross!!! These were the dirtiest bathrooms. The toilet stalls don't have doors and the main bathroom door doesn't close all the way. Sinks are gross. You don't want to touch the handles. Bugs everywhere. Overflowing trash cans. The only showers are in the day use tent camping area, and they cost a dollar for 8 minutes. Watch out for clumps of hair on the shower floor. They are cleaner than the other bathroom, but that's not saying much. The dude that cleaned the bathroom only emptied the trash and replaced the toilet paper. Floors, sinks, and toilets were left untouched. This was ridiculous for $50 a night. Pros: beautiful river setting and nice spacious level sites with full hook ups. They had trash cans at the end of every site, and the grounds were kept clean. Cons: Disgusting bathrooms. We won't come back here because of that.

Rate is based on monthly stay. We've enjoyed our stays here, but it's worth noting that the difference between winter and summer stays is significant. During the summer, it's busy and expensive; during the winter, quiet and very reasonably priced. Sites are unique in that they are three spaces wide with a concrete pad in the middle. Motohomes can pull in and have a view of the river; others can back in since there are hookups on both sides. Sites are packed gravel and have a table and BBQ grill. This is a no-frills park; restrooms are not well maintained, there's no cable TV, pool, playground, or reliable Wi-Fi; it's just a place to enjoy the river. During the winter the river is stocked with trout, and there are plenty of fisherman on the river. The park is generally quiet at night, but there is no management presence after 4:00 so there is no control over noisy campers, and watch your step as many dog owners do not leash or clean up after their pets. Convenient to New Braunfels and San Antonio, yet in a rural setting. We'd stay here again. We camped at Camp Huaco Springs in a Motorhome.

This is a lovely park with sites located on the river. As described by others, the sites are difficult to get into and if there's a traffic jam, even more so. We were here off season during the week (hence the lower rate, too), so it wasn't a problem for us. Sitting by the river, watching the birds, then the sunset, it was very peaceful. I can imagine it might not be on a busy weekend. We would camp here again. We camped at Camp Huaco Springs in a Travel Trailer.
It was a little hard to get our 30ft trailer backed into our spot. The camp site was full, and we got there late. So my advice is get there early if you have a long trailer, or just get there early period. When we made the reservation the lady on the phone said there aren't a lot of tent campers along the water unless it's a holiday weekend, but she may have understated that. It wasn't packed, but there were a lot of tents. Over all it was a very nice camp and the convenience to the Rockin' R made it the perfect place for us to stay and float the river! We camped at Camp Huaco Springs in a Travel Trailer.
My rating might have been higher except for the extreme drought that Texas is currently going through. River was hardly flowing and water just seemed dirty. Find a place where the water is moving. Overall not a bad experience, we just prefer a little more space to move around. It's a party place on the weekends. Pros: asphalt roads, crushed granite pads, good power and water ( temps were 100+ and campground was full), good space between sites, quick check-in, friendly atmosphere ( except for the owner, but that's another story) Cons: have to hitch / unhitch quickly otherwise you will be blocking traffic, tight turns and little space to move / back-in, trash cans overflowing, no cable, expensive for what you get. Will try a different place next time on the Guadalupe River. We camped at Camp Huaco Springs in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here over Easter weekend..very dusty, dirty, crowed, trash not picked up from community trash barrels, lots of cars, tents, music at night, camp fires. Cash only. Wanted a credit card in case of any damage done by my motorhome. Area by river trashy & unkept. We stayed in motorhome facing river in double space - one for rv and one for car for $50 per night-no discounts. Only good thing is close to New Braunsfels & Gruene towns. RV area parked on a crushed sand and red clay iron ore material. wifi good.. Will not stay here again..Mostly camper,tents, 5th wheels and lots of cars... extra fees for some things. Guests must pay entrance fees.. We camped at Camp Huaco Springs in a Motorhome.

Nice park: the kids loved it. Lots of space between sites. Will come back again. Now for the "warning." They have street lamps out toward the edge of the road, which for the most part are a good thing. However, if you have a Large Trailer, backing in around them into your site could be a major problem as there is not enough room for you truck to swing out. Stayed at Site #31.

Nice Park, friendly and helpful staff. We had a river front site, very nice!! Great views. Saw lots of fish being caught, though it was stocked twice in two days. Verizon phone worked well, Motosat no problem. They do a good job of keeping this place clean. Have been told it is crazy busy Memorial Day to Labor Day. Rate was based on week stay. We would stay here again. We camped at Camp Huaco Springs in a Fifth Wheel.

The price reflects the monthly rate. We stayed at this campground two months this winter and two months last. The campground has become very noisy due to motorcycles. The WIFI either doesn't work or is very slow. I had just finished waxing my truck when a grounds keeper used a leaf blower to blow granite dust all over it. I will not stay here again.

This was our second time to stay in this park. This time we reserved site #3 due to last year's constant pedestrian traffic crossing to the river though our site (which is very bad manners). I have improved my rating to a 10 since we had no traffic through our site but I did notice anything past site #4 did have the constant pedestrian traffic even though the park has several public access areas to the river. The sites are very large able to accommodate any size rig with ample parking and patio space. A wooden picnic table is provided and the riverfront sites are great. Our site overlooked the falls and sites #'s 1-8 do not allow for day use or tent camping between your site and the river giving you some privacy and room to spread out your pop up awning for shade by the river. Our electric power was great with no disruption in power levels for 5 days of 100+ heat. Our site did require about 1 1/2 inches of leveling on one side of the rig but this is the only negative feedback I can offer. The $60 per night is a little steep but it is the best park on the river and worth the money if you consider the alternatives. We will return again next year.

This is our favorite campground and we stay here at least twice a year. We love the easy river access. It's shallow enough to set chairs up in the river and watch the kids play. The staff is friendly. We camped at Camp Huaco Springs in a Travel Trailer.

Quiet little park during the winter but hear it is rowdy during the tubing season on the river. Could use a nice laundry and faster Wi-Fi. Price reflects monthly rate. We will probably stay here again early next year while visiting family. We camped at Camp Huaco Springs in a Travel Trailer.
