45 Parks near San Marcos, Texas
Jan 2017 - $25.00
Our welcome at this park was friendly and efficient. We thought we had a "riverside" site, but between us and the river was a huge open field in the process of being cleared and graded - perhaps more sites. The heated pool and above ground hot tub are indeed here; but suffer, like the showers and other parts of this park, from age and many years of use. Deferred maintenance is a great description of the shortcomings here. We would not plan to return. - Vic and Marsha

We had reserved two premium pull through sites. They put us in two back in sites.
We requested two pull through sites as we had already paid for when reserved. None were available, they put us at two sites that were on different ends of the campground.
During the move of our trailers to the sites, we saw a site, one over from mine was empty.
Went back to the office and requested that site, it was reserved. After discussing the other sites, suddenly we were informed the site we were now requesting was available due to a cancellation. That was great, but funny thing is, we were told no money back for cancellations, so why would someone cancel?
The group in the office was very disfunctional. Also no discounts at all, good sams, nothing. Only campground in the whole trip like that. Not worth $50.00 dollars a night. - John - Ga

Normal daily rate $50 is way too high for what you get. Passport America only works weekdays & is still $25 per night. Staff is friendly, but not quite familiar with their sites. It appears they use certain sites for daily raters and better sites for long termers, of which there are many. We were assigned site 330, which she described as a pull thru with open sky to the south for Dish signal. Not a pull thru. A pull into vs. back into. Very narrow, our 40' bus needed some maneuvering to get straight & not damage any of the hookups. And too many trees to get Dish signal. They have indoor pool but the hot tub needs you to jump through hoops to get access-gotta go upstairs & contact staff to get access. They have a small store, DVD's for borrowing, and propane available for delivery to your rig. Just an average RV park with extraordinarily high price. Be prepared to have self-appointed "traffic cops" jumping out waving arms telling you to slow down while driving through park, we got one crazy lady doing that as my wife idled out the driveway at warp-factor zero. - rvrrat520

We stayed here about a year and a half ago. Since then it's become a self-service park. We paid $40.00 for a gravel pull through. Unfortunately the site was not level, ended up with wheels off the ground on one side. Supposed to be free wifi. Still looking for it. Cable was adequate. I believe this place is over priced and will not be back. - cameocamper

This is a most interestingly-run park. It's self-service. There is nobody in the office (at least at any time during our 5-day stay) and a phone call gets an answering machine, although once a lady did answer. There is a box outside the office for you to take a form, fill it out, and put it with a check (no credit cards) in an envelope, then deposit it in a slit in the box. So if you don't have any questions or need help or recommendations for local restaurants, shops, hospitals, repair shops, etc. I guess that's fine.
There are also signs throughout the park and club house indicating there is a problem with theft and to lock up your belongings. While we were here, one man said his water regulator was stolen overnight. And signs in the restrooms say do not make a mess because there is nobody to clean the restrooms. Just a different kind of place.
The park itself is nice, several shade trees and wide sites. It's right on an Interstate hwy., but noise was not a problem inside the rig with our A/C running. Convenient location between San Marcos (Outlet Malls) and New Braunfels (Camping World). 50 amp electric service is sometimes questionable. - retired rover

Only accepts cash or a check, no discounts. We made reservation by phone a few days before and was directed to one of 3 possible open sites. We did show up in the evening, filled out an envelope w/ our details and site number, placed a check inside and dropped in a night drop box. We never saw anyone at the office, but during our stay, we did not need anything else. Nice older park with lots of shad trees and some shrubs for privacy. Interior roads are paved, most sites have a concrete pad under RV (w/ gravel ramps leading to and from pads) with a concrete patio and picnic table. Power and water were great. Even thought its between railroad tracks and the interstate - the noise was not a problem. We will be back and stay again when in the area. Thanks and safe travels!!! - KenTravels

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

Very quiet, better for adults wanting a quiet time. Great wildlife viewing. - Teri`

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 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

This started off a truly nice place, with landscaping that has grown nicely. They've added a bar and used to serve food, but not sure now. In the time since we lived here and last used it when we didn't, it has grown seedy. Lots of junky full-timers and people that stay for weeks at a time and leave junk outside their trailers. It looks terrible once you look past the landscaping. The best, prettiest sites are in back, where the junky trailers, old motorhomes, etc. are. The owner rents to people: single moms with kids, construction workers, you name it. Without being an out and out snob, I have to say that this place gives my husband and I creeps and WE are in an older but nice travel trailer. It's the ambience that lacks class. I WOULD NOT recommend this place to anyone wanting peace, quiet and a nice place to stay. It is noisy, cars and trucks coming and going, and music played loud enough to hear it in my trailer with windows shut. Avoid like the plague! - GIniaJM

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
