45 RV Parks near San Marcos, Texas
May 2017 - $65.00
Most RV Parks websites quote rates for daily, weekly and monthly. Their website quotes daily, weekly and extended stays. I found out upon arrival that means you can't get the extended stay rate (monthly) unless you commit to a 6 month or longer stay. They wanted to charge me the weekly rate which would have been over $1200 for a month. I can't comment on the facilities or amenities because I chose not to stay. Just driving in and out, the park looks level and nice, but way over priced for a monthly guest. - startech

Stayed here for a week. The park is awesome and the staff are very helpful. Could not have asked for a better experience. The granddaughter really enjoyed the indoor pool. On two occasions when I asked the staff for recommendations about places to go and good places to eat they were very helpful. We decided to stay out from under the trees so our satellite would work. Didn't really need the satellite as the cable works well. In the summer, you will definitely want to stay under the trees if possible to help with the summer heat. Will definitely stay here again. - newmarboy

Called ahead and left a message for them to call us back. They never returned our call. Decided to take a chance and drive in. There was a truck camper RV Rally going on. went to office and told the lady we just needed a space for one night. Told me it would be $50. She asked me about discounts, but we didn't have any they accepted. Was told about the Texas RV Park Discount Card and she gave me 10% off. Total for stay was $45, which is ore that we would normally pay anywhere, but we were tired. All gravel streets and gravel sites. Our site was fairly level and it was plenty long for our 40' fifth wheel. Park appears clean and is pretty quiet. Good space between camp sites. - Digetydog

There are some good pull-through sites in this park in the interior. The outer back-in sites are primarily gravel and are not very level.
The park is located on the Hwy feeder and there is a plant behind the park. Both of these contribute to the noise level in the park. It's a little loud but not overwhelming. - Booney

The park is located close to the interstate, easy in and out. Nice location close to Gurene and the Outlet Malls. There is a little bit of noise from the traffic and trains, not unbearable but you probably want to run a fan at night to mask it. This is a nice clean park with mostly pull through sites and cement pads. Our site was plenty long enough for my 45' motor coach and tow vehicle. However because of the over grown trees and low branches there were many sites that would be unacceptable to any taller RV's. The trees would definitely be a factor for satellite reception in many sites also. If they just trimmed the trees this would be a great park for over night stops. We did not use the bathrooms, WIFI or cable, so can't comment on them. - jherrin

I called a week in advance to reserve a site. When I arrived ~2PM, the office was closed. I called the number posted on the door, no one answered, so I found an open site and setup. About a hour later a woman called, OK'd my site selection and explained the payment procedure (pass check thru office door slot). A notice posted on the office door states that the showers/toilets are closed. The internet connects but doesn't transfer data. Trees partially block sat reception. Nevertheless the CG was almost full ... location, location, location. - joebasiglio

They do not allow children, which for the majority of people means they don't want you. They are almost always full, because of their cheap monthly price (which is why I listed 10 a night). They have no bathrooms, no showers, no laundry, and very short inconvenient office hours. They have no website, which is weird in 2015, so good luck getting their number. - Swift_Strongarm

When we came to this part of Texas for a job. This was a very reasonable place. Good place for workers that have self contained RV's since they don't have restrooms or showers. Very nice people and next door to the Three Dudes Winery. Less than 2 miles outside of town. The rate I gave was monthly and we would stay again. - BJ&ME

I enjoyed the golf course and the area very much. there were alot of things to do in the nearby towns.
The office staff was very nice. It has Pull through sites and 50 amp service. There was supposed to be WIFI but we couldn't figure it out. There was a swimming pool which was nice in the heat.
The spots were gravel with Lots of big trees giving you a lot of shade. The roads were paved around the campgrounds but there are a ton of pot holes so you have to be very careful. - houseofclarkes

I paid monthly and stayed for three months. The location and monthly price was a good value (which is why I listed 14 a night). The people who ran the park were very nice and courteous. The pool was out of order, and the wifi barely reached more than 10 feet from the main office. The park looked very trashy, because they did not require people to maintain their lots. I never used the bathrooms, but I am willing to bet they probably weren't that good judging from the appearance of the rest of the park. On the plus side they don't care about trailer age, trailer appearance, families, retirees, etc. All are welcome. If you aren't too superficial this park isn't half bad. - Swift_Strongarm

Stayed here one night. Check-in went fine once the reservation was found and clerk figured out we were not staying for a month. Our drive through spot was easy to find/get into. The CG has MANY full time in a myriad of rigs and their outdoor decorations, stuff or just plain junk greatly distracts from this CG. The roads are narrow, rough and curvy which made negotiating our 40' rig with towed, very difficult. Rate reflects the Passport America discount; this is not a $40 a night CG. I would not stay here again. - Monaco Bob

Rate is based on monthly rate plus electric. This is a family-owned, quiet park on the outskirts of charming Wimberley. All sites are back-in and laid out in a U-shape against the trees, with a five acre meadow in the middle. The sites are large, with shade and patio furniture, but most slopr upwards from front to back. There are no rest rooms, pool, or other amenities except for the free cable TV which was excellent. And, with only 15 sites, the park is very quiet. Deer frequent the meadow in the morning and evening, and many birds also frequent the park. Verizon cell and 4G data were very good, and satellite TV was unobstructed. The owner and her mother are delightful to talk to, and genuinely care about the quality of residents stay. Not fancy, not many amenities, just a comfortable place to stay in the beautiful Hill Country. - Meanderman

This is a small quiet park located just south of Wimberley that has back-in sites nested against the tree lines. A large open field in the center provides a sense of openness. It was hot and dry while we were there. Even though sites are close together privacy is maintained. There are several long term sites. There is easy access to center of town. Deer will visit you late in the evening and early in the morning. The big question - would we go back? Yes! Without question. - WagginTails

We stayed here for 2 nights. In and out very tight in a 45 foot motorhome, but doable. They made sure I was free of trees for sat reception. I was a bit afraid of scratches from trees, but they were trimmed nicely. Very strong wi fi which surprised me. We didn't use restrooms or laundry, but everything looked quite clean. Power was acceptable, although had to run gen when stove, oven and A/C all running at same time. - rdkpotter

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!! - TheRestlessYoungs

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. - User3755

We ran into tire problems getting here, so we didn't arrive until after midnight. Thank goodness there was someone to show us to our spot! The next morning an employee came around to make sure everything was OK.
All the employees were nice, but the long-termers seem to think they own the place. One man revved his loud bike up and was going in and out of the park, seemingly for hours. I don't know if he was trying to repair it, but it was hard to sleep in after a stressful day & night.
The dog area was nice. The lots were near each other. We didn't use any of the other facilities. - bleehow

We will not stay here again. Not many places to stay in Wimberley that are big rig friendly, but will go to Dripping Springs or Johnson City. We were given 2 different prices based on which owner is there (father or son). They are way over priced as there are no amenities or discounts given. The internet is very unpredictable and very slow. No cable TV and many of the sites that are available are extremely unlevel. Three to four levelers needed in some cases. 90% of the sites are permanent trailers. - goofy50

This place has made some improvements since my last visit. The RVs that looked like they would never leave have been removed. It's a small, but clean and quiet RV park. There is room between the sites, and there are plenty of trees. It's a no frills park, but quite nice. The river is within walking distance and provides a nice swim and play area in the rapids. Most of our time was spent swimming or in town. Blue Hole has been improved and is a lot of fun. - SoccerDad

Billy Goat's Gruff is horrible!!!! It is some stupid old grumpy woman’s back yard. It is not even a real camp ground. She stuck some window units in her sheds and calls them cabins. What a joke! Not one of the camp sites is right on the river like she will promise. We were going to camp there the weekend of August 1st, 2009. We got there and she was already mad because we arrived at 11 am. She says “Check in is not until 2:30, but I guess I could let you in.” This is here stupid backyard we are talking about; really, when does her yard close or open? We arrived and she was freaking out because the other person in our party had a pop-up camper; I had call her the Friday before and told her we were changing the tent site to a pop-up. I also had mentioned that we might have some other people showing up the next day and they would pay when they got there. She started to freak out and tell me, my wife and my friend that we were liars and to leave. She said she was going to call the police on us and my 3 small children (1, 3, and 4 year old.) ? I told her we would leave if she gave us our money back; she freaked out again and went in the house. We were promised 2 camp sites right on the river with water and electricity, not camping in some crazy lady’s backyard. She also told us, when asked about not being right on the river, “if you are too lazy to walk down to the river, you don’t need to be here. Camp at your own risk. There are many other places to camp; do not try here. Ask psycho woman for a picture of the “grounds” from the back of here house, you will see what I am talking about. I doubt she has any repeat campers. - julieab1

We have a 44' RV and it is a bit difficult to maneuver. It is not really designed for rig’s that large. It is mostly a tent camping place. It is very dusty. The sites are dirt and grass. The sites closer to the water have shade. The big field for tents does not. They have small cabins available for rent, but I never saw inside of them, and do not know the cost. For the RV, we paid $15/person/night. In addition to that, they charge for water and electricity, I think it is $5/night. We do not utilize the restrooms, but I know they have free showers, and sometimes there is a line on busy weekends. There is a bar on-site, and a grill on the weekends. They also have live bands outdoors at night on the weekends. It is a party atmosphere each time we have been here. You can buy ice on site, $3/bag. You can rent tubes ($15/per person, rent 3, get the 4th on free) here. They will shuttle you, or you can get in the water here and float to a pick-up point. You can sit in chairs or tubes/rafts in the water and not float if you choose to do so. They have a sand volleyball area. I do not recall seeing any other play areas for children. If there is a problem with unruly guests, you just go to the office and report it, and they will take care of it! We saw that first hand this weekend. They have a dog painted in their logo, floating in a tube, which is misleading because they do not allow pets. They do, however, have a resident cat. There are containers everywhere for you to recycle beer/soda cans. I believe a couple of the sites have fire pits. - SmileyInFrswd

This is more a tent campers place. I have tent camped here many times and this was the first time I took my travel trailer here. It was very difficult to maneuver and park, luckily I had rented an additional spot for some friends that were tent camping. The road to the RV sites is one lane wide and like I said does not allow for easy parking. The showers are free and there is always a party atmosphere, lots of people cutting from the parking lot through our campsite to their camp site or the river. I have a long bed, quad cab truck with a bumper pull travel trailer. Others also had a difficult when it came time to pull out, one in a 5'er and the other in a large bus type RV. - FrogDog26
