2 Parks near Salado, Texas
Nov 2015 - $32.00
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

Our stay was good. Access to the park was easy from the highway and far enough away so that we didn't hear highway noices. The owner was very helpful by escorting us to our site and making sure that Cloud 9 was level and set up well. He also offered treats for our four doggies. The white gravel was freshly raked and level. We had a nice concrete "sidewalk" with a lovely park-like lamp right ourside the door. Each site was equiped with a picnic table and a trash can. The camp is quiet and well maintained. There are interesting tableaus set up around the camp. The night we arrived the sky was clear and we could see the starry starry night of Texas...along with a few shooting stars that streaked across the skies. We were here to attend an annual family reunion in Salado--we'll return! - Cloud 9

I love this park! It is a short drive from the charming town of Salado (and Interstate 35) which has lots of cute shops, restaurants, etc etc. It is out in the country and very quiet. The owner is onsite and is very strict about his rules which I appreciate! Party animals need to go elsewhere! There is a nice dog run and a nice view of horse pastures. One morning there where chickens by my RV which I got a kick out of and a few friendly cats who greet you occasionally. At night you can see all the stars which you can't do when you stay at the RV parks right on the interstate. The only noise I heard at night were some coyotes in the distance! The owner is very helpful if you have a problem with your RV and can direct you to a good mechanic if needed. I love the mature shade trees nearby and interesting 'artsy' type things in this park. Nice hot water in huge roll in shower too! Lots of room and grass between RV's along with your own picnic table and trash can which is a nice touch. Can't remember exactly what I paid...you do need to pay cash only though. - JT McDawg

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

Excellent COE campground. We stay here often, sites are level and waterfront. Park personnel are friendly and always willing to help. - jham76522
