26 RV Parks near Tarpley, Texas
Oct 2017 - $10.00
First I will say: This is a beautiful setting and a really nice RV park with good facilities. Our rate was based on a month. It is located about 18 miles south of Kerrville and 8 miles north of Medina.
However, we would suggest not coming in from the north. Pulling your RV down highway 16 rom Kerrville would be a challenge, especially for a big rig. It is one curvy, hilly road! We intentionally went out of our way to come in from the south, and were glad we did. Would go so far as to say, driving thru the Rockies wasn't any worse.
A negative to some/positive for others: no cell service and no Verizon mifi service. The park does have free wifi and it is about the best I have ever found in any rv park. My phone and Consumer Cellular service does not have wifi calling capabilities, which is what is needed for most visitors. We were here a month and found not having cell phone service a little inconvenient. Cable tv was fine.
Another thing that is a neg/pos: those same curvy/hilly roads are loved by motorcyclists. Many stay in the very nice cabins that the park has to rent. Nothing against cyclists, but be ready to hear them coming and going at all hours. They don't think about the "quiet" time of 10pm to 8am.
If not for these 2 things, I would give this park a resounding 10. The staff are super nice. They have a restaurant, the Koyote Grill, which has great burgers and pizza, and on Fridays a fish/chic tender buffet that was excellent. The camp store sells basics.
Roadways in the park are very adequate. The sites are level, long and wide with packed gravel, concrete patios, picnic table, fire-ring. There is parking space for an extra car. Good utility hookups. Great dog area. Beautiful walking/hiking trails and one of the prettiest pool and patio areas I have seen. So, even with the little inconvenience and bike noise, we like this park and would go back. - JudynJoe

We had a great time here Medina Highpoint. My wife and our 8 year old son spent Labor Day Weekend as guests this year. The staff is fantastic along with a good rotation of live music and food options at the restaurant. Outdoor music stage with tables and a view that is intoxicating. Spacious park and the RV portion was nice. Stayed in pull through with all the necessary hookups. Could use some more shade trees, but view all around is the trade-off. We spent a lot of time at the pool and hiked to the two observation decks. Killer views! We'll be back & the only reason for the 9 and not 10 stars, is to leave room to keep getting better:).Wi-Fi is weak out here, which if you plan to be outdoors the whole time is great, but i needed to do some work while there and had a hard time getting a very strong Wi-Fi signal and there is zero phone service out where so know that ahead of time, so you are not surprised. Manager and the staff are all awesome! Thanks for a great long weekend!We'll be back! - cbpierce69

Stayed for the first time last week in site for back-in against the hill.
The views are tremendous and wildlife galore. In the morning, watching the herds of deer walking through the park was fantastic. Beautiful area to take lots of dog walks. The Friday night catfish dinner good, but the cook got sick and apparently not much of a back up system in place for this. So we made the 60 minute round-trip drive to Bandera and bought our barbeque provisions for Saturday night dinner. At outdoor music area/stage, in the heat of dusk, employee poured a lot of gas on the open fire-pit (by the stage) and lit it----needless to say it was smoky, nauseating and we had to move. Infinity pool was packed with big family groups and pretty dirty, but refreshing. Would like to try this place in cooler weather, because very little shade where most RVs park.
There is minimal cell coverage at this park, but staff will get a message to you from their toll-free #, if necessary. Manager and office staff great! - ALively

The park is in a semi-remote location, so the wildlife was excellent! This park is like a deer reserve. There are walking trails in the back half and I saw deer tracks and trails everywhere. Plus the owners put food out for them every day. I live in the city so I really don't get this kind of experience at home. The park recycles and even has its own compost bin. The grounds are immaculate and obviously well cared for. There are free DVD and VHS rentals, which I personally really like (I love movies), and most of them are A-list movies. Between DVD and VHS, probably at least 100 if not more. Anyway, the only downfall was not having public showers, but I prefer to use my own shower and not have to worry about wearing flipflops and hauling in my own shampoos. Great park! I'll be back. - SALICIOUS

Wow, this is a unique park which has an indoor pool and workout area. The owners are really nice and seem to always have a positive attitude. There is great variety of wildlife in the park, so pets must be on leashes. I really loved the deer and donkeys live next door. This is a well kept park and the landscape and grounds are very well maintained. There is a quiet time in the park at 10pm and I found that to be a blessing. I love the peace and quiet that this resort has and I really like the concept of recycling. All of the people I met at the park were really friendly. If you have a chance to stay in the Texas Hill Country, this is a park I highly recommend. It's a paradise. - butchboy

We have stayed at this park several times over the last three years, but our last visit turned out to be quite different than in the past. There are several year round guests now, and some of the sites are a little trashy. There is no dumpster and they expect you to separate your your cans, glass, paper and garbage. The compost pit attracts skunks, rats and possums which roam freely around the park at night. During the day you can smell the trash they burn in barrels from anywhere in the park. There an outdoor cold water only, public shower, one public bathroom and one washer/dryer. They play Caribbean music on outdoor speakers non-stop which can be heard from any site in the park. If you want peace and quite, I would pick another spot. - landrover

Park is located in the Community of Christ church camp and there are no level spaces. Spaces are very close but there is almost no one staying here so the feeling is that you have the place to yourself. Every possible recreational amenity is available, pool, Medina River access, play areas for little kids and the park managers are very friendly. The place is relaxing and long walks with the pooches are a hoot. I would have rated the place higher except spaces are not level so some work must be done and the spaces are a bit too narrow making ingress and egress a bit difficult although almost all spaces are pull through. The community bathrooms/showers are very clean and there are tons of picnic tables. The park is closed to RVs during the time school is out; I believe June through August as the camp is used by a church groups during that period. It is an easy drive into Bandera if you want to have a meal in a restaurant. The park is very pet friendly. - wiredgeorge

Spent 6 days here. Clean RV Park. Asphalt Roads with Concrete Pads. Good location for all utilities. Some permanent residents. 27 RV Sites. Lots of space between sites. Part of Twin Elm Guest Ranch, so access to swimming, games, campfires and Medina River are included. Hayrides, Horseback riding, and tubing carry additional charges. If in the area, we would stay here again. CAUTION...There are 3 entrances, USE the 3rd Entrance for RV. You don't want to try the first two. - Liteman

This is a real dude ranch type of experience! We enjoyed the fact that the location keeps us in civilization but is fun for the family to feel like we are authentically going back in time. - rvhoustonlady2014

We spent Nov through March 2011-12 at 2E RV Guest Ranch Resort. The permanent rv'ers there were some of the nicest people you could meet. The permanent sites are well cared for and landscaped by the residents and are a real bonus for this rv park. The management/owners are another matter. Rent started at $185 for Nov and Immediately went up to $225 for Dec. The washers and dryers did not work on credit cards (the wireless required to authorize did not always function). When Campers asked for it to be made a coin laundry, the price went up and water levels in the small washers were lowered, dryer time reduced as well as heat. Price for electricity started at .12 a killowatt hr and was increased to .15--a 25% increase. Before we left in March, rent went up to $250 and now is $275. Grass is not mowed on a regular basis and many times the rv'er's mow their own and help their neighbors by mowing. Some showers have no curtains, showers and clubroom not cleaned regularly. As much as we liked the other rv'ers, we will not be back to a rv park that is managed in this manner. - PurpleSpringer

We stayed with a group of Airstreamers. The road in is pretty rough, but it is fine. It made sure that no one is speeding through the area. Check in was extremely easy and the woman at the front desk was friendly.
The Antler Oaks Lodge is beautiful! It also had a library and games to play. I believe that Saturday includes a movie night with popcorn at the lodge.
Bathrooms are clean. Hiking down to the river was nice (there is a nice river access) and nice paths around the property. Antler Oaks is nicely away from the road, but still so close to town where there is plenty to do.
When we were packing up to leave, there was a bunch of (actual) turkeys making noise - so cool. We will stay here again. - timbers

Up front, my only complaint is the entrance road....very bumpy and needs help. Beyond that, what I have read from previous reviewers wasn't my experience. Stayed for 4 nights, and brought along 13 other rigs for an Airstream Rally. Our rate was discounted for the size of the group. The park is about two miles from town and sits well back from Hwy 16, so little to no noise. The entrance road is no longer one-way, pool clean (too chilly this stay), sites generally level, staff available and responsive to our needs. The park is maybe 3 years old, and yes, they continue to work on it. But, our group seemed to like the park, and the Main Lodge. Lots of families judging by the number of kids on a hay ride on Saturday evening. Based on our experience, I would recommend it. - AirstreamR

If you make it into the park on the incredibly horrible roads, you will come to the majestic lodge. It is indeed beautiful. But the bathrooms were dirty, the rugs filthy, and remnants of cooking on the kitchen stove. The pool behind the lodge looked like brown sludge. We were there several days and only saw one person -- a young lady who registered us. No one in the office on Saturday or Sunday. No evidence of maintenance throughout the RV park. There, the gravel sites were unlevel and narrow. Stickers in the grass. Pieces of pipes and connectors sticking up all over -- someone said they looked like remnants of an old irrigation system. Dangerous, especially at night since there is little to no lighting in the RV park. Would never recommend this park. - retired rover

Convenient to town and quiet, restful atmosphere. Enjoyed watching and feeding deer, donkeys and watching the two longhorn steers. Nice walk to Medina river. Bank is steep down to river but worth the effort. We were with friends and our sites 155 and 157 were not level. Low hanging tree branch hindered being able to pull to optimum level. That would be only complaint. Would recommend site 157 for great view of pasture. - eastexas

We have visited Skyline for years, staying from 4 nights to a month on these visits. Management is very friendly and accommodating. Park is convenient to Bandera, offering eateries, dancing, interesting shops and is a short drive to Kerrville which offers abundant shopping, museums and restaurants. The park offers recreation rooms, laundry, library, and has 2 longhorns and 2 donkeys, and access to the Medina River. Many deer come through the park daily. Great to take grandkids to expose them to wildlife, river, and an atmosphere of country living. Highly recommend to any one that is not looking for 'big city' attractions. - Ann and Lee

Price quoted is based on the $180 weekly rate. This is a nice park with good sites. Pull thru sights are large. Didn't use the bathrooms or showers. There are about 20 deer that come through in the morning and evening and a pasture area with two longhorns and 2 mules that show up close to park for the night. The wifi is good but you can be on for 60 min. then have to re-logon. Overall this is a good park to stay at and be able to see the area and San Antonio is 50 min away. - lapazjim

We booked a 4 night stay at this park. When we arrived we paid for the 4 days at the PA rate of $10 a day. They said we would have to go into the new section because our 5th was too large for the old section. Our fiver is 32' long. We paid and went to our site (41). It would appear that all the trailers in this park are permanent or seasonal residents. Our site was so small and with so many trees around it that only a Smart car with cart could have backed into that spot. We went back to the office and told them we could not fit into any of the available sites (many were so uneven that you would never be able to level any RV). I would not recommend this park to anyone. The only positive about this park was the girl at the cash and the refunding of our money. - Kemptvillekids

The positive side of the park is that it's within walking distance of fabulous downtown Bandera. Lots of cowboy shops, bars and restaurants. There's a nice fenced dog park. The negatives are: the sites are a little narrow and set up as a buddy system where you face your neighbor. The town and park are overrun with stray cats. The park doesn't enforce the leash rule because our long term neighbor had a cat that constantly roamed the park. Making it unpleasant to set outside. - full timers from Michigan

We stayed here for a month and plan to return next spring for a month. Managers and office staff were very pleasant and helpful. The park is conveniently located so you can walk to most places downtown. Washrooms, showers and pool were very clean. There are plenty of activities for guests. Sites are close but we didn't find that a problem. - Jan Griff

We stayed for an extended period over the summer and part of fall and left our toyhauler there when we came home. It was safe and looked after while we were gone. The park was very nice and peaceful. Everyone was very nice. The laundry room was kept neat and clean. There was a dog area for our dog to run and play. Close to town. The only thing I didn't like was the Wi-Fi. Would stay again. - GypsyRC67

We loved this park. It was during Thanksgiving and were invited for meal provided by owners of camp ground. They were super helpful. Wasn't crowed. Our site was nice, semi private, with tree in front of camper. The RV park is very clean. It was quite but a little traffic nose during the day. Walking distance to town to shop!! Restrooms were very clean with homey feel. - Chuck and Teresa

This is an older park that has had few upgrades. The restrooms are old and the washing machines and dryers just are awful! It's in an ideal location and most sites are large, but overall it's a dusty park since the roads and sites are not paved. The current, not so friendly manager, does not take into consideration where she parks the rigs. She put our friends into a 30 amp site and they needed 50 amp. A lot of "bikers" were staying in the park and the loud music and their partying was disturbing! We've stayed in other parks that allowed motorcycles, but they had rules that asked everyone to respect their neighbor. They only cared about filling the sites and not caring about the ramifications that others had to content with. This could be an excellent park but needs a bit of TLC! - Travelin' about

Chose this park because it was affiliated with Coast to Coast. After driving about 10 miles down a paved country road, filled with numerous potholes, arrived at a locked gate to what appeared to be a trailer park. Called the number to the "clubhouse" and was told someone would arrive to allow us entry in a few minutes. After more that a 15 minute wait, we followed another vehicle in. Found the RV park, which was behind the "clubhouse". It was completely empty, not one rig. We drove around to select a spot and observed that the grass at all spots was extremely high, I mean at least 2 feet high - obvious has not been mowed in a long time. Most spots had picnic tables that were so warped by the sun they were unusable. We picked a spot in front of the restroom/shower building and my wife went in to use the restroom and I parked. She came right out and said there were 2 women and a man in the ladies room and that the room was very trashy, she was a little spooked. She also noted there were no locks on the door. While I was waiting on the wife, I looked at the spot's power pedestal that looked like it had been backed over. I would not have hooked up to it. We decided that this park wasn't for us so we just left. We did not go into the "Clubhouse" so I can't comment on the staff. We did feel that it was a shame the park was in such a sad state of repair, the area actually looked pretty nice with lots of shade trees. Wonder if their Coast to Coast affiliation is still valid? I would not recommend this RV Park. - CU-RVers

Since this park was listed with coast to coast we endeavored to book a site. When we called the park directly on a Wednesday and were advised that we needed to call coast to coast which we did. However when we called back there was no answer and a voice mail about office closure Monday to Wednesday and to leave a message for a call back- no call back ever came. We actually found the park in the dark after numerous misplacement or rather we think we found the park. There was no actual signage So if indeed we did find it and what we saw were sites we would not fit due to low hanging wires.
We ended up finding our way back out in the dark and going further down the road to a easier access grounds. Definitely not planning to return. It is my understanding that we were able to cancel the remaining 8 nights but forfeited a night as a no show. So definitely, absolutely not returning This is 7 miles down a paved road which then turns to a almost 2 lane unmarked, pothole ridden dirt road. - witchey1

The rate is Coast to Coast. This park is in the hill country and rather remote. The road to it is very hilly with lots of dips that potentially can flood and close the road to the park. You have to go slowly. We left the park early because a major rain storm was coming and the road probably would be closed. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The park could use some maintenance, e.g., grass cutting. The clubhouse and pool are nice. The sites are level but close together. Not many RVs were in the park when we were there. It is a good idea to call ahead if you are arriving on a Monday through Wednesday since the office is closed, even if you have a reservation. We would not stay here again. - JGockel
