Had planned on staying here overnight but when I pulled in and drove through the CG I found it to be dirty with a lot of not very neat permanent rigs and dogs running loose or tied up outside with no one in sight. Decided to keep driving. - retiredhappy

We have stayed here before. An OK overnight park. Cable TV is a little fuzzy and we couldn't get a Wi-Fi signal as we were too far from the office. We were in a pull-throug where you first come in. Train nearby but we didn't hear it at night. I would stay here again. - nedmtnman

Great little campground for overnight. Easy in and easy out. Nice long, level, pull throughs. Internet adequate, lots of cable channels. We asked where we could get air for our RV tires and the owner brought over his own compressor so we could fill our tires. Very friendly, very nice guy. Would stop again for overnight. Lots of burrs though that bothered our dog, but I think that's common everywhere down here. - Rambling All Around

Pulled in late and knew it was a mistake. Couldn't get a reply at any other CG in area. Finally found office in very back. Nothing level in this park. So many people live here full time, lots of noise. Some of the neighbors were really far out. Seems like a party place. We stayed but won't again ever. I don't like dogging someone like this. I can say the front office lady seems like a good person. If I had to stop here again I would try staying at local Walmart. - JustDon

If you are looking for paved roads, concrete sites with a pool and other high dollar amenities keep moving. If you want peace and quiet with a mix of pull thrus and backins with 30/50 electric, sewer and well water that is great right from the tap, then you want this park for a night, a week, or what ever. Owners live on site and very friendly and are always working around the park. Park host or owner will help you get set up. Some permanents but most have clean sites and park is quiet even though on state highway. Laundry and showers available if needed. Not much to do in town but an hours drive is Austin an other way is Bryan/College Station. If 65 or over ask for retired rates. You will be pleased. We were and glad we stayed for a month. Don't forget Snows BBQ on Saturdays. - xarmoreddriver

We were passing through and needed a place for the night. This park is good for that! Full hookups are conveniently placed. Pull-through site. Super friendly and helpful staff. Far enough from the highway that noise wasn't a problem. Shower house is clean, supplied and the water is hot! Some of the park looks as though it could be a muddy place when it is raining, so watch for that ... - SeeTheUSA

If you're looking for resort type park, this is not the park for you, but we would definitely refer our friends. We wanted some place between the two Presidential Libraries and this was the only one. We didn't expect a whole lot at $20 per RV Park Reviews, (they had to raise their rates), $22 a day was the weekly rate. There were quite a few permanent residents, but the park was very quiet and not messy. The laundry is in the office and only has two washers and dryers, but they are not coin operated. It's on the honor system. Large capacity washers and dryers. Unlike coin operated dryers, they go until your clothes are dry. $1 per load. The park had the best WIFI we've experienced in any of our travels, including some of the more expensive resorts. Fast and reliable. As mentioned before, the entrance road is a little rough, however, if you use the northern most entrance, it is much better. Only reason for not giving it a 10 was the fact it had a lot of stickers for walking our Lhasa Apso. This is Texas, so I guess it's a never ending fight. - vwbluestar

In a 42ft Class A. Used a back-in site but drove in so windshield had lakefront view--awesome. Sites about 120ft apart. Covered picnic tables. Very private site 15. 50 amp and water. 5 night stay. Level paved sites. Boat ramp in the park. 13 min drive to Taylor super market. Great find. Grill and fire ring at each site. Definitely come back after Texas heat breaks. Voice only for T-mobile, I did telework using AT&T and Verizon hotspots, both strong LTE with signal booster and roof antenna. COE parks have been excellent so far. Too bad flooding closed Somerville Lake and Canyon lake parks. - Navychop

Sites are very spacious. There is water and electricity but no full sewer hookups. Lake is good for fishing and there is a designated swim area. You can reserve a site in advance or there are sites on a first come first basis. Gate attendants are always friendly and helpful. This is our go to campground. - K David

This park is on the shores of Granger Lake and some of the sites have nice views of the water. Some are shaded and some are not. Most sites are very spacious and level and are surrounded by lush green grass. Parking at each site is back-in, but is very large and easy to get into. Each site has a picnic table which is covered by a large and sturdy shade shelter. There is reliable 50/30/20 amp electric service, water, fire ring, and covered grill at each site. Restrooms and showers are a bit dated and were a bit dirty, probably due to several large groups using the park at the time. The campground was quiet the first 2 days, but became noisy when the skiers started blasting their stereo just off shore. No wifi but strong Verizon signal. There is a swimming area and boat ramp. The biggest downer came at the end of our visit, when we went to the dump station. Unbeknownst to us, the drain was full and/or clogged, and we had a big mess when we opened the valve to our black tank! And when we reported this to the gate attendant, she said it had happened a couple of weeks ago also! Park entrance hours are from 6:00am - 10:00pm. - BrentB

Thanks to the local Chamber of Commerce, we ended up here as all 'regular' rv parks in the area were full and we're glad we did. The park only had 3 other campers, very quiet, large lots. There is a playground and boat launch but little else. We've enjoyed other COE camping areas - we feel they're underrated. - cmclark

We really enjoyed the quietness of the campground. The one major problem is that it is so remote it is practically impossible to make the 10 pm curfew. There needs to be a way for people to get into the campground after the gatekeeper leaves for the night. Rate is very reasonable. - beachvic

Great place to be during spring, with beautiful wildflowers, wide spaces between sites, friendly gatekeepers. During the week, very quiet. Shopping just a few miles down the road. Lake with fishing in walking distance. Easter week end was very busy though. Would recommend though. - lonestarsteve

This is a brand-new park and possibly represents the parks we'll see in the future. The first thing you'll notice is no picnic tables, no fire pits or rings.
Believe me, the park looks great without them! There is lush green grass at every site. It is well mowed and very neat, unbroken by tables and fire rings. How often did you use either...when you traveled.
The majority of the park is long term employed, predominantly 5th wheels on back-in sites. The park holds 10-12 pull through sites for overnight travelers so they don't have unhook. The park is clean to almost prim, and all sites are well kept. The park rules on their brochure include a simply stated "Three strikes and you're out policy". The rules are followed. Everyone likes the owners and the results of the rules, so they don't need enforcement.
There is no Texas dust! The roads are double wide blacktop, the RV pads are level cement with blacktop aprons. The sites are very long. The site is half again as wide in the front. Once you are parked, this extra width will be your patio. The utilities are all part of a pagoda style pedestal and work well. Even the pedestal light works! There is lots of room around each site.
The cable is very good, sharp and clear. The Wi-fi works very well with a choice of three hot-spots.
There is a small, well maintained home style pool. Also a workout room with new equipment that actually works and is used. A game room with adult games e.g. air hockey, pool, etc. And, a laundry that is very big and clean. All three of these activity rooms pass one to the other and all are next to the office for ease of monitoring. There is also an Assembly Hall for family get togethers, potlucks and other activities.
The park is "L" shaped and a picnic shelter/pavilion is located at each end.
There are tables, grills and a big fire pit at each.
You'll see pictures on their website, it is a great park! - Jack B

New park that has been open since around Oct-2015. Owners and family are hands on-constantly working-a few permanents but very well organized-everything works very good-Rural area within (1) mile of Caldwell. A good variety of eating places-Walmart etc-Cannot find any negatives about this place. - jc2

This is a brand new park that has only been open for a short time. The hosts are very gracious and Melissa was awesome. The facility is very clean and fresh and has a very nice layout. There is grass between all the sites and an occasional very young oak tree. I suggested to the owners to "Plant more Trees".
The full-service sites are pristine with perfectly level double-wide concrete pads. The only problem I had at the site was the location of the pedestal. It was located at the very back of the site so I had to use water and electrical extensions to reach my RV that was centered on the pad. This was not that big of a deal but something to note.
The climate controlled rest room/shower was also pristine, and they have a very nice large laundry room, a work out room and a game room with coin operated games.
My complaints - this park charges extra if you want a picnic table and a fire pit at your site. To me as a weekend RV'er, a picnic table should be an automatic and always included. And their Non-Refundable cancellation policy is a bit extreme and will likely prevent some folks from making reservations.
The only other issue to mention is that this park is located right off a very busy Hwy 21.....so the traffic noise is constant.
That being said; this is a very nice park with tons of potential. I realize the main focus for these parks is the long-term guest, but a few modest changes might enhance their weekend traffic. - Tcamper

Easy to get here. Nice people. I didn't use restrooms or asked about cable. No trees so satellite would work. I would stay here again. - JustDon

We spent 6 nights here while exploring the countryside. The owner and manager were great. Very helpful and friendly. They're working daily to improve the park for their guests. Windy most of the time but great views from the sites. Shopping is nearby with terrific restaurants. Within easy driving distance of downtown Austin, but most of what we needed was much closer. State highway out front but not noisy. Quiet at night. Peaceful place. We would stay here again. - Lastrick
