This is the worst campground I have stayed in. We stopped here traveling through TX. The sites are long but skinny.
1.The $15 nightly rate, but I would rather stay in a Walmart
2.Great Verizon signal
1.The pace is covered in those tiny thorny balls that stick to EVERYTHING! I forget the name of them.
2. ZERO over the air channels, but they advertise basic cable, but all of the outlets are broken.
3.90psi of water
4.my site, 11, is not level. R side wheels off the ground when level.
5. Nothing close by. - rynosback

This is a simple little city-owned RV park located on US 283 (S Minter Ave) on the south end of town. Each site features a pull-through with a sturdy steel picnic table, a grill, water, electric, sewer hookup, and a cable TV outlet. Payment of the nightly fee is via the honor system using a drop box on site. According to the RV park's sign and the city's website, weekly and monthly rates are also available. The sites in the park are reasonably level and consist of a weed/grass/gravel mix. Overall it's a nice place to spend a night for a great price. Expect to hear some traffic noise from US 385 out in front of the RV park, but it dies off late at night. We'll definitely stay here again when passing through the area. - Gyropilot
May 2016 - $30.00
The nightly rate includes the $8 ($4/person) entrance fee plus the $22/day site fee. The April 2016 review provides an excellent summary of the park and history. The campground is on the east side of the highway with the historical park on the west side. The park roads are paved with gravel sites. Each site has a picnic table. There is limited over the air TV, satellite access is good from all sites. Acceptable Verizon and AT&T service. The park provides golf carts, if you want, no additional charge, for your tour of the historical grounds. This park is a great place to get away from it all, void of man made noise and commotion, and beautiful night skies. - Johnson's

Fort Griffin State Historic Site is located 15 miles north of Albany, Texas. It features a visitors center, partially restored grounds, the official herd of the state of Texas longhorns and campground. The park was a Texas State Park from 1936 until 2008 when the State Historical Society took over operations. The campground has 28 sites (1-20 water & electric and 21-28 full hookups). WE sites $20/night and FHU sites $22/night plus $4/person entrance fee. State Park Passes are not recognized. Sites are spacious. #13 & 20 have steps down to the Clear Fork of the Brazos River. They have golf carts available to tour the restoration area. The visitors center was recently remodeled and the displays are excellent. The deserted town of Fort Griffin is just outside the park with some restored buildings by private individuals. At 2PM daily they call the longhorns and give an educational program about longhorn cattle. We were in site #22 which will soon be turned into the park managers home site. Highly recommended this park. - drfife
Nov 2015 - $23.00
The prior reviews are right on. This is a beautiful place to stay. Mostly wide, long, level back-in sites with utilities easily accessible. A large group (gaggle?) of wild turkeys came through the campground two times each day we were there. No one else was in the campground mid-week in November, but sites are well separated anyway. Just a relaxing, quiet, historical place. There is a well done, small museum at the visitors center. Register at the visitor's center, then go to the campground. The campground is on the east side of the highway a short distance from the visitor's center, which is on the west side of the highway. A wonderful example of how good a campground can be. Just 15 miles into Albany for the Old Jail Art Center, historical courthouse and dining and shopping. We hope to be able to go back soon. - starwind
