Rude new employee at check-in. We have been coming here for over a year and usually stay several months at a time. Never again. You can no longer use any of the nice spots at the front. Can't reserve them. The sites at the back are the only ones available. They have no cement or gravel on the sites, just sharp large rocks. No shade, no trees, no grass. Very, very narrow spaces. Lots of ants and wasps. Miserable and depressing spots. And no refunds if you don't like it. Office is very picky about anyone coming to visit you. They will be charged. No security over in the campgrounds. We camped at Summit Vacation Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
Go to Oma Gruene's Secret Garten in Gruene for great music. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
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. We camped at Summit Vacation Resort in a Travel Trailer.
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!! We camped at Summit Vacation Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects C2C membership. Roads to the campground are narrow and winding--but pretty country drive. Staff are friendly & helpful, in fact, the staff are one of the biggest strengths. After checking in, we were escorted across the street and approximately 1/2 mile to the RV/campground section. The roads inside the campground are awful. Most of the amenities are back in the registration area where the cabins are located. When we called before reserving our site, we were told we would be able to get cell phone and internet connections. In reality the coverage is in very limited areas within the resort. We had to leave our RV to get phone/internet coverage. WiFi is available in office, clubhouse and parking lot. Clubhouse is open for very limited hours. We did see wildlife daily, enjoyed trees throughout campground and river access from the cabin/registration area. We camped at Summit Vacation Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was beautiful with nice big sites. Loved watching the deer come in every night. The pools looked incredible but are not heated, so the water was to cold to get in. The bathroom has been newly renovated but needed to be cleaned a little more often. We enjoyed our stay and would love to go again. We camped at Summit Vacation Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice park. We stayed 5 nights. The sites are large and flat. We saw deer in the park every night. This RV park is connected to a time share resort so all amenities are shared. Nice! Our son and dau-in-law came for a weekend and got a cabin. Very nice! One downfall is that there is no cable and no TV reception on antenna. Thankful for my books and my husband's DVD's. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Summit Vacation Resort in a Motorhome.

The Summit is a very clean and well organized RV resort on the banks of the Guadalupe River with tubing and all other water sports. It is a short drive from Canyon Lake which has all the swimming and boating amenities you could want. Friendly staff and security personnel. We camped at Summit Vacation Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great RV park. If it hadn't been pouring, it would have been even better, but you can't fault the park for that! We stayed for three nights and saw 4-5 deer every day. The site we were in was moderately level. Major problem we had was the poor cell phone reception. Three days without the ability to make phone calls in the RV was tiring, but if you simply want to relax, you can't do much better than this campground. We would definitely camp here again.

This is a fantastic place to come and relax. We were here for 9 days. It was very quiet with only 9 rigs. We enjoyed the company of at least 6-8 deer every night. This small valley is splendid. Satellite TV reception was great, and our own broadband for the computer worked just great. We loved the pool and hot tub. Ya'll come down and camp here soon. It's one of the best resorts we've ever been in. We camped at Summit Vacation Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I entered $10 here because we have a membership with Coast to Coast. This resort was great! We were here for 5 days. There was tons of things to do. Deer in our campsite every day and night. They have 4 pools here. The spots were gravel but pretty level and long enough to accommodate our 40' 5th wheel. The sites were roomy and the campground was easy to maneuver our rig in. Bathhouses (showers, toilets, etc.) were very clean. The staff was extremely friendly including informing us on places to eat, things to do in the area, etc. Had 24hr security also. You can now get Wi-Fi here, however you have to go to the pool area to get it. Also, this place being in the Hill Country it drops periodically. We camped at Summit Vacation Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Definitely a campground that understands "family friendly". Our kids Love Love Love this campground. We stayed last year over a long weekend with some friends. Gotta say they certainly know how to entertain the kids and kept them busy all day with their crafts, game room and laser tag at night. Don't despair mom and dad! These extras are very affordable and considering we didn't have to drive somewhere else to find entertainment was a bonus. We were able to veg by the pool while the kids entertained themselves and then came back together in the evening for a hearty dinner and roasted marshmallows. The only downside was that we had difficulty with the first site they tried to put us in. The positioning of the trees would not allow us to extend our slide, no matter how we maneuvered. They were very accommodating when we asked to be moved - even though we had to pay a bit more for a "premium" site. Laundry room and bathrooms were kept very clean, and the managers were very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. We camped at Summit Vacation Resort in a Travel Trailer.
We actually camped here quite a number of years ago but was not able to check a date earlier than 2009. We were so disappointed when we learned that the actual campsites were across the road from the resort, basically in a big gully surrounded by cliffs. Not pretty at all. Basic site with water and electric. We did have access to the resort across the road and there was a big pool, shuffleboard, game room, etc. But river access was extremely difficult. You had to make your way down an extremely steep path from a deck built out over the water. I did not want to try it. It was okay if you want to spend all your time in the resort and some people would, but not for us. We camped at Summit Vacation Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a Coast to Coast rate. Friendly staff. Neat and clean. 50 sites are full hook up. Many sites not level. A lot of amenities. No wi-fi, no cable. Sites do need more gravel. Nice and quiet. In a steep valley, TV reception poor. Verizon works just "ok". Verizon air card worked well. Woodall rates this a 5 "w". The condos and cabins may be a 5 "w", but we are rating the RV park. Maybe if we had a level paved site with wi-fi and cable we would rate this higher. Close to Canyon Lake. Two pools and two hot tubs. A very nice area to visit. We would stay here again.

This is a Coast to Coast resort. It is a great Texas Hill Country RV Park. Have stayed here 2 times and the owners were very helpful. Only down side Dirt/gravel pads need to be reworked and leveled. We camped at Summit Vacation Resort in a Motorhome.
