17 RV Parks near Smithville, Texas
Jan 2015 - $17.00
Beautiful old CCC state park with small fishing lake. The Cozy Circle area is the only loop that will accommodate 30+ foot RV's. Many of the sites have the picnic table opposite of door side. Many sites have good privacy. Heavily wooded, we could not extend awning fully. Dump station near Cozy Circle has tight turning radius. Not a problem but be aware. We would stay here again. - drfife

This is a gem of a state park. While Bastrop State Park is connected to Buescher on interior roads, this park was not affected by the big fire and is still green and lush. It is a blast to road ride the connecting 11 mile paved streets in-between the parks, but know that the hills are very challenging and ideal for training. We enjoyed the beautiful hiking trails that are well marked and shaded. Fishing is free in all Texas State Parks and this lake is well stocked with large-mouthed bass, catfish and trout. The bathrooms are spotless and offer free, hot water showers for campers. The playground is large and wide open and all of the rangers and park staff were friendly and helpful throughout our 14-day stay. This park is just 2 miles up the road from Rocky Hill Ranch, a well known mountain bike park that offers epic cycling opportunities! About 4 miles from downtown Smithville, this park is private, clean and very beautiful. We enjoyed a peaceful stay and we camped here with 2 dogs. In the next several months, all of the hiking trails in Buescher State Park will be open for mountain biking! The check-in office is lovely and many of the out buildings were built by the CCC in the 1930's and offer great historical significance. - RVLife4us

Great Texas State Park. Good roads for biking, good trails for hikes and a pond for fishing. Quiet atmosphere and friendly staff. - Free Range

This park used to be one of our favorites but the big fire in 2011 and the finicky (although usually friendly) staff, including the macho-man police officers sent us packing.
It does not seem like much has changed as far as the nit-picking, and the very young; tough guy park police that are still lurking like they are looking for criminals or a camper with too many tent steaks around their tent.
The park has rebounded nicely from almost total devastation, with improved sites with very nice RV pads and 30/50 service pedestals, and the rebuilt bath houses are exceptional. My only complaint about the actual camp sites are the 2 foot high boulders that line the camping loop roads. Although they are nice looking I guess ....... They are total hazards that you cannot see when backing in larger RV's into the supposedly "Big Rid Friendly" RV sites.
And on this weekend, my campsite in the Coppreas Creek area had weeds that were 2 feet tall just beyond my RV pad. I had to walk through the weeds to get to the fire ring or the picnic table. Seems the endless parade of gawking park vehicles could park occasionally and drag out a weed-eater. Also note the Highway 71 traffic noise is very loud if you are in the Copperas Creek area.
I've always pulled for this park to rebound and I wish them well, I just don't see us frequenting this park very often. - Tcamper

This was my first visit to Bastrop SP since the big fire. We used to tent camp, but have recently upgrade to a 37 ft 5'er. The park was green due to recent rains, but dead burnt trees still dominate the landscape. We stayed in the Piney Hill campground which is an all pull-thru campground with water, electric and sewer. No cable or WiFi. The sites are all paved. Ours had a pretty good incline that made leveling a challenge. We were in site 22. Our site had a nice covered picnic table, a fire pit and a grill. We camped mid week in April, so the park was pretty empty. The bathrooms have all been rebuilt since the fire, so everything still looks very new. - Camper Ally

Bastrop, TX - Bastrop State Park
We stayed here in April, 2016 for 5 days in the Copperas Creek Loop, site 76. Concrete pads and roads, full hookups 50 amp service in this loop. The park is still recovering from the 2011 and the flood in 2015. A lot of the trails are still closed but the park is open and still amazing. There was slight traffic noise because the fire destroyed the barrier of huge pine trees between the park and the highway. Park road 1C connects Bastrop State Park to Buescher State Park which is also a beautiful Park and did not receive the damage that Bastrop did. It's a beautiful 12 mile scenic drive between the two Parks. Both Parks were well maintained and clean. Huge sites at Bastrop to accommodate the largest rigs. Sites at Beuscher were smaller and did not have sewer connections. - Phaeton2

We have stayed here many times & love it, but this was the first in our 35' 5th wheel. We were supposed to be in site 30, but when we pulled up to it, the very nice park host came by and thought the site was too short for us, so she switched us to site 9, which was plenty long for truck & trailer. Site had 50amp and water, and a dump station on the way out. There are 4 private bathrooms with sink, toilet & shower each- and another set of 4 around the corner (and another set by the cabins). South Shore was not affected by the 2011 Bastrop fire (unlike the devastated Bastrop State Park was). Enjoy the pine trees and lake. We take our elementary age kids trail riding on Swift/Gideon/Lobolly and Heron trails & have hiked the North-South Trailway between the South Shore & North Shore parks. We swim in the dedicated swim area & have also rent canoes and once saw an eagle flying overhead! Fishing is very popular here. We have also tented camped and rented cabins (that have AC & heat) - all good experiences. As with all parks around this area - they fill up fast on weekends and even weekdays in good weather. - 5th Wheel Family

Nice, level wooded site. Great access to shopping and dining without being in the midst of them. Satellite will be difficult or impossible on most sites. I got Dish with a rooftop antenna in site 20 but it took some maneuvering. I found I had the last of the 14 day reservations at an LCRA park. The stay limit at all is now 10 days. For that reason alone I probably won't be back. - ljr

We went to this park for the weekend to make sure the travel trailer was all working. Beautiful site on the lake, back in with picnic table and lot's of tree's; no WiFi or Cable. We walked the park and enjoyed the lake. Friendly host's and staff, clean facilities and dump station. - Caroline and Joe

Nightly rate based on monthly rate. Very nice park by the Colorado river. Paved road and sites. Room for two vehicles to park. Owners are very nice and helpful and seem to be continually upgrading the park. Nice playground for kids and fenced area for dogs. Restrooms are very clean. The only negative is the highway noise. We plan on staying here again. - Tandgtucker

Very friendly staff, unfortunately the park is older. The sites are not level, there are thorns in the grass, and of course is next to a busy highway and train tracks. Definitely not worth the price and was disappointing as I have heard so many great things about KOAs. Also the trees need some trimming because they scrape up your rig, pulling into site. - Techn0

This is a well maintained campground, with very friendly and helpful owners at check in. Interior roads and pads are paved and big rig access is fine. We had a long level and spacious pull through site with picnic table and barbecue and plenty of space for our towed. There is some grass between sites and some lovely shade trees. Highway 71/21 runs along one side of the campground, and it is noisy and not the best view to look at from your RV. Lovely pool with a splash pad. Bathrooms are spacious and spotless and the laundry room is clean and well equipped. Security gates and surveillance cameras add to a secure feeling. WiFi is fair. Pet friendly with a Kamp K9 and dog walk area, doggie bags and disposal station. Walmart and other large stores are in the area. We would stay here again, for us it was fine as a one night stopover, with easy access on and off the highway. - tobyjug

The RV park is very well kept with a very friendly host who is always around if you need anything The day park & facilities, adjoined to the Camping section is another story. I heard a commotion coming from the women's bathroom during an evening walk & there was a whole faimily in there with suitcases and using the facilities. - Texan58

Found this park to be very clean & well maintained.
The hosts keep the trash cans emptied. It would be nice if they would police each site as the campers leave to make sure the site is left clean. - Texan58

We stayed in this park for a week and loved it. The sites have a rearward slope, but not too bad. They have a nice fishing pier and boat ramp within walking distance. The camp hosts were very friendly and helpful. The town of Bastrop is about 6 miles away and has a Walmart and lots of great places to eat. We found it to be a very quiet park on the week days and not too bad on the weekend. The only problem we had was being awakened in the morning by buzzards walking on the roof (LOL). When I opened the door they all flew away. Reserving on-line was quick and easy. They do have an extra fee per day, but give discounts for seniors and military. It's listed on the website. We can't wait to stay there again. - LoboFromTX

Park is rustic with lots of treesand chickens in park but they stay in roost until after 8 am. The rate is very reasonable and the friendly park host/owner only charged me for three days even though I was there for four nights. I would not consider this park a good location for a large RVs (ours is 36') as the available sites are not level. I found a site near the front of the park that was level enough to use my jacks but I barely fit. At this site the 50 amp power plug was so close to the ground that I could barely bend the cord enough to get connected. The road to the park is narrow and there are two rough railroad crossings to go over. And, yes, train traffic was an issue but the trains in the night seemed to mute their horns. Do not take the shorter route to the park as the road goes through a single lane, low water crossing that is very rough and steep - there were many scrape marks in the pavement where trailer hitches, etc. have hit. - sccatech

We love this park. Clean, lake, boating, fishing, bike riding and hiking. The town has everything restaurants, health care, Walmart, lowes, etc. 40 minutes away from Austin. Easy to get your camper in and out. Also shelters on the water. - Erby

We stayed here while visiting Austin. The park is OK. Mostly has seasonal and full time residents. Close to the highway so there was some highway noise. WiFi was not available at all sites. Park was OK for a stop over night but there are nicer places. - Jdawg

Stayed at the park for two nights because we have friends there. Road construction in front of campground was a nuisance. We have a motorhome pulling a cargo trailer. The dip from the road into the park was so deep that we dug a trench in the road with the trailer hitch. They are going to open up the frontage road so the going in and out of the campground will be much better while they finish the construction. Wi-Fi was not available for the side of the park we were on. - ob's place

Large sites, very quiet park. Bathrooms and other facilities were very clean. Pool looked well taken care of but did not get a chance to use it. The park was convenient to Giddings which was important to us because we traded in our trailer for a larger, new one, purchased at Funtown RV. It appears that there are a number of sites occupied by oil workers, etc., which only adds to the peace and quiet of the park. We would definitely come back to stay here in the future. - Patricia Sterkowitz

Most of the campers here seem to be long termers or permanent. Quite a few dogs. Someone had a fenced off area with 4 dogs in it. Park is clean and quiet. Convenient to Highway 77. Sites are very spacious. Internet worked well. - UllaPool

We stayed here in a 40' fifth wheel for two nights. The pads are long and the sites spacious; accommodated us very nicely. Pads are gravel as are the roads. Owners are quite nice, but mostly absent. Interestingly, they do not have an office. They will meet you and take you to your lot. Your registration paperwork is given to you at that time. Fill it out and deposit it in mail box marked "honor box". We enjoyed our stay. We feel the price was a bit steep as cable-tv was not offered. We were not offered any type of discount. Wi-fi worked great. - oldbluejay

First the good things, making a reservation and check in the folks were very nice. Power, water pressure and sewer were all good. Sites are all concrete however ours was not very level.
We requested a pull through as we were towing a vehicle. Was told at check in that once parked I would have to disconnect the toad since their pull through's are actually two back ins and they may have to rent the spot behind us. One of the reasons I like pull through sites is the option to leave the car hooked up or to be able to get it all hooked up the night before. Was told I would need to rent two sites if I wanted a true pull through.
Sites are very close together, no picnic tables and not enough room between the units to put one. Water hook ups are below ground and ours was flooded so you had to reach down into a pail of water to hook up the water hose. Our site had a small willow tree planted so close that it rubbed against the side of the coach and made it difficult to get to the back of the MH or in the basement compartments.
The grass has not been cut and needs it badly. Lots of full timers with older rigs with junk piled around their sites.
Noise level from the road and in the park is very loud and being so close to your neighbor you hear everything going on.
Last complaint is that there is no place to walk the dog except up and down the concrete drives.
Passport America discount is not the usual 50% off. We stayed here for 3 nights and we won't be back. - Razin Kane

This is the most decrepit park that I have stayed in since I have been traveling in a motorhome! This was probably a nice park way back when, but there has not been any maintenance in years. The facility is filled with rundown trailers with "stuff" all around them and weeds growing under. Trash was never picked up while we were there and the bins were running over! It did have FHU so that was a plus. The road leading in is full of potholes. No checks or credit cards, cash only! We had to stay there as we had a maintenance problem that was resolved on Saturday. I would not recommend this park to anyone! - oniedu

We did not stay here. I checked out the park two weeks before the Austin F1 race. At that time the gravel road into the park looked like a war zone (some of the potholes appeared to be a foot deep) and I was afraid that it would twist my coach's chassis. The price quoted me seems high for the condition of the park; it was basically a pasture with gravel roads. The sites were large and quite spacious. The park is close to the highway, but there did not seem to be much traffic on the road. - sccatech

OK for overnight stop. Open field with gravel/dirt roads. We were led to our site. Water & power OK, didn't use sewer for 1 night. Rooftop dish worked, few trees, and Sprint cell & hotspot worked. Several families, few with children, are living there. Quiet. - big greg
