2 Parks near Salado, Texas
Apr 2016 - $20.00
When making reservations was told that park almost full so no discount. When we arrived there had been cancellations and discount was honored. Exit from I-30 still under construction and access roads very narrow but doable. Park is well laid out and puts the "fun" in funky with lots of interesting items in trees, garden, & in fence. Owner guided us to site and helped us park our 42 footer in a pull through. He was gracious and offered advice on a couple of things we were ignorant of. There was some morning traffic noise and it rained one of the days there but we were extremely pleased and will stay here again if we come this way. - Doc Randy

There aren't many other options in the area so we would stay again but the rest room/shower area needs a good cleaning. The hours of 9-9 for access are not convenient, the owner should invest in a combination lock so you could use the facilities when needed. It is pretty quiet at night, a few people living there leave early morning so a little noise then but not bad. - Lynn-Donny

Stayed one night, made last minute reservation, very accommodating. Quiet at night, some local traffic noise in the morning. Owner very nice and helpful in setting up our site after dark. The exit listed, 286, doesn't exist now due to construction. So use 285 going north or 287 south. One little thing, wish the restrooms had earlier hours. 9:00 is too late to be able to shower or use toilet facilities. Overall though a very nice experience. - tb919

Stayed in a small pull-thru site, fairly level, and overlooking the lake. Good 30-amp service.
Very quiet campground. Just a short hike up the hill to well kept restroom / shower.
Site number was hard to find, they are posted on the small covered picnic table. - thetravelkids

This park is very nice and neat as a pin. It has a mix of pull-thru and back-in sites on the south side of Stillhouse Hollow Lake. (Note that Dana Peak COE is right across on the north side of the lake in case Union Grove is full.) Our site was maybe 50 ft from the water.
This is a boating lake rather than a "swim from shore" lake since there is a rocky bank all around except for the designated gravel beach access, so keep that in mind if you expect to swim with kids. Multiple bathrooms with showers are sprinkled around the park. All the ones we visited were modern and clean. The kids enjoyed fishing at the pier one evening and had great success.
No wifi, but AT&T had full bars of LTE service. We got a half dozen or so channels over the air. Sites are right on the lake so there's no shade. Deer are plentiful so stay tuned especially at night.
We would certainly visit again---especially with friends who have a boat to most fully enjoy the lake. - texasAUtiger

Spent 2 nights here. 50a and water worked well, water pressure was 90 pounds. Dump station on slight slant. Paved roads and back-in site. LOTS of room between sites as expected at COE parks. Verizon cell and hotspot worked well. Site had a good downward slope toward lake when entering but leveled out pretty good once in the site. No trees nearby so rooftop dish worked well. Covered picnic table, fire pit nearby. Peaceful & quiet. - big greg
