Pretty cool to pull in and be welcomed by name at my truck window upon our arrival. A little tight to manouver some corners, but the park seems to be laid out well. Our sight was a pull-through and the exit was directly in front of us, so the exit was easy too. The sight was perfectly level, and the sites are divided by landscape timbers. The sewer connection was perfectly leveled for easy flow, and the other hookups were well arranged near the middle of our trailer. The site was wide enough to pull my truck next to the trailer, so I wasn't hanging out into the roadway. We were in Liberty Hill specifically for a barbeque, and didn't see much else to do in the area. River looked low (from the local bridge), but I can't comment on the access from the park. It was raining fairly heavy during my departure routine, but the water runoff was great and there were no puddles for me to wade through. No compaining about the rain! I would stay here again if we are in the area. Make sure to pay attention to their website regarding directions! Don't take the direct County Road 257 route. It is windy and has low trees. The route detailed on the website was easy to navigate. We talked to the couple on the site next to ours and they are full-timers living in the park. Really nice folks!
In five years of RVing, this has to be the most friendly place we have ever stayed. We stayed here for just one night while in Fredericksburg to visit some wineries, so the price reflects four adults. While that seems a little high, this is by far the best of the RV parks in Fredericksburg. It is convenient to many attractions in the area, and where we stayed, there was no road noise. The site was fairly level, and the corners a little tight in the back area, but this was a great experience. The owners went out of their way to welcome us and talk when we were leaving, and the work-campers routinely patrolled the park, stopping to chat and socialize when the opportunity presented itself. We booked our next stay here before leaving, so we will definitely be back.
This is a great off-the-grid place to be. Spacious sites with nice shade, little noise, good trails, and pet friendly. It was a little muddy, but we know it rained several inches the week before we arrived. There are also a lot of areas that haven't recovered from the drought. The roads and tree cover are a little tricky with a large trailer. As is the dump station. We could only access it from one direction due to excessive tree growth. All of that being said, this is a friendly, quiet place, and the weather is great this time of year. We love this park in the Spring and Fall and will definitely return again.
Others mentioned close sites, but these were the closest I have ever seen. I literally had to move my neighbor's picnic table out of the way for my living room slide slide to go out over their patio. I was in a pull through space, but had to back out to leave because of tree limbs blocking my exit. When we checked in, we were advised that our site was too far away from the office to expect Internet service, and I appreciated that. What They didn't tell me the park was having water issues, and we had almost no water pressure on Friday. Then, Saturday morning, the water quit working completely. Fortunately I keep some water in our RV. We love the area, but will seek an alternative place to stay next time.
What a gem! Great amenities including a HUGE indoor, heated pool; horseshoe pits; shuffleboard; tennis courts; volleyball court; and multiple dog runs, one of which was big. Only negative was the proximity to 105 with some road noise and lots of sirens. It was, however, New Year's weekend, so we shouldn't have been surprised. Friendly workers topped off a great stay. We will surely return.
Family friendly park. There is a nice playground, and great hiking trails. We took a free hiking tour with a volunteer naturalist that was informative about the trees, birds, etc. Later that day, there was a show at the amphitheater at Buescher State Park (connected to Bastrop State Park) with a number of reptiles and non-venomous snakes. The kids couldn't get enough! The downside - the site wasn't level, the trees were a little low, and the asphalt and gravel around most of the sites was eroded away leaving big drop-offs leading to the picnic table at the sites.
This is our second time to this park. By State Park standards, we give it a 7. There just aren't a lot of extra amenities other than hiking and the views. The sites are well spaced, and we were there early enough in the day to get a site that accommodated our larger RV. The park is well maintained and clean. There is no litter, no cigarette butts, etc. The rangers and park police are beyond friendly and are a tremendous resource of information. The drawback to this park is the unlevel dump station, which is also difficult to get into due to tree growth. I didn't even bother stopping, and had to pay extra to dump at an RV park closer to home.
The only thing this park has as a positive is the Frio River. No one actively works the office, nor returns phone calls, so if you want to go, be persistent. The river was great once you got there, but the access is even pretty rustic from the RV Park. They do have fire rings at each site, but the sites were not level. The park is a gravel parking lot, and difficult to traverse, as the sites were mostly close together. They also charge an extra $3 per person after the first 2, so we paid $9 a night more for our three kids. We thought that was outrageously high rate when there are no activities. Luckily, we have a Texas State Park Pass and went to Garner State Park each day for activities. We'll certainly look for an alternative before returning here.
This continues to be an outstanding park. The office was accommodating of our request to be by the pool, as we have 3 kids. The drawback was that we were next to their "overnight" site, so we had new neighbors every day, with noisy setup and take down. That's not the park's problem though. This place is perfectly manicured, and they had all types of activities for the kids over the 4th of July weekend. They had a couple of hours of potato sack races, bobbing for apples, water balloon tosses, and pop sicles. This all followed a parade of bikes, golf carts and other buggies throughout the entire park. Capping it off was a great fireworks display that night. The playground area is nicely shaded too.
The name and description are deceiving, as this park is not on Braunig Lake. They have a 5 acre pond in the center of the park that they call a lake. The park itself is nice, and has a great pool, which was a requirement in the Texas heat. There is a hot tub, but the water was the same temperature as the pool. The folks who work at this place have to be the friendliest of any place we've stayed. And, the food they provide for minimal costs was outstanding. We had breakfast in their rally room both mornings we were there for less than we could have purchased the ingredients. The sites are a little close together, but we still had plenty of room to get the awning out.
This is a nice park, but expensive. And, then they charge extra for our 3 kids. Desk staff wasn't that friendly, but the guy who escorted us to our site was like a long-lost grandpa. There wasn't much water in their ponds. The grass or lack thereof is a challenge to deal with. Our dog and kids had stickers everywhere. The sites are concrete, and the boardwalk to the beach are positive amenities, but the close sites and grass burrs really detract from the appeal of this place. We have returned because there is no decent competition.
Nice clean park on Highway 281. Easy access to local towns. A little road noise. Park was well maintained, easy to navigate, had asphalt drives, and concrete pads. Playground was on dirt versus rocks and was muddy with a little rain. Park's water system wasn't working one morning, but they were able to get it fixed within an hour or so. Nice rally room, but we understand it is going to be removed due to an upcoming highway expansion. There are some donkeys and alpaca that loved to be fed food the park provides. It is OK for a quick weekend with our 3 kids, but there is not much to offer for a longer stay.
This is a great family-oriented park. The owners work the grounds, and go above and beyond to make camping experiences here enjoyable. They continue to improve the park, and added a huge jumping "pillow" since our last visit. To ensure that no-one gets left out, we observed them doing 3 nighttime hayrides to give all who were interested a chance to ride. The owners and "rangers" (work campers) enforce the posted rules to ensure safety (i.e. parents must be with kids under 13 at the pools), and that everyone has a great time. And, the rules are quite reasonable. We overheard some unhappy campers complaining about their stay, but brushed off their comments when we realized their own actions were to blame. We are never less than perfectly satisfied with this park. And, I guess others agree since they were sold out again this weekend.
They accommodated our requested site, across from friends camping with us. Pull through site was level. This park is consistently clean and manicured, with lots of wildlife. We frequently return for these reasons, and will do so in the future. Pool was clean, and the hot-tub was the perfect temperature.
The nightly rate does not include daily admission fees. We bought an annual State Park Pass for $60.00 that is good for a full year. The staff is extremely friendly at check-in and at the park store. Sites we rustic, tree covered, with no grass. River access was good, and the dinosaur tracks are well marked for visitors to see. Despite cool weather, the kids had a blast swimming in the river. Dump station is not level, so don't expect to be able to fully empty your tanks. It rained almost the whole time we were there, and without grass, our site was muddy. We will return again, but in warmer weather.
Consistently clean park to which we continue to return. The park was near capacity, yet the staff was friendly and helpful (more so than our previous stay). We were there with two other families, but weren't able to get sites very close to each other. This could have been due to our late reservation planning, but there were also empty sites between where the three of us were assigned. Great playground for the kids, and the indoor heated pool (limited hours for kids) is a big draw for us and others with smaller kids when the weather is less than desirable. We will return again.
Easy access in and out park off of IH-10. We arrived late and left early the next morning. The pull-through site we had was level and easily accessible. There appeared to be several long-term residents at the park. We did not notice any amenities (playground, etc.) but really weren't looking either. There is some road noise from IH-10. The front desk staff was friendly and recommended a seafood restaurant called Tug's Wharf which was excellent. Biggest reason for lowering the rating: when I opened my truck door, I almost stepped in a pile, that someone's dog had left and they didn't bother to pick up. It was sufficient for a one night stay, especially for the price.
The site was tight to back into. The camper in front of us voluntarily moved to help us out, which was greatly appreciated. Our RV is long (39 feet), and that made the task a little daunting. Leaving, a couple of people also voluntarily moved, but we could have made it past them if necessary. We didn't get to take advantage of the amenities of the campground, as we spent most of our waking hours at Disney Theme Parks. The biggest issue we had was the frequency of the buses to transport you from sites to the Settlement or Outpost. We waited over 20 minutes on several occasions. Besides that, the sites were clean, with a picnic table and BBQ at each site. The electric connection was at the very rear of the site, but our standard cord luckily reached. We did Trick-or-Treat Halloween night, and were amazed at the detail many campers put into their decorations. We would return again, but plan on staying for longer than a week so we could take advantage of the campground's amenities.
Small park with few (if any) amenities, but appeared clean. It was convenient to IH-10 for an overnight stop. All back-in sites, but ours was level. Price includes being charged for 2 extra people, which was steep, and we would probably not stay here again because of that. Our after-hours arrival instructions directed us to only the more expensive river-front sites even though the less expensive sites were not occupied. Additionally, there was an extra sewer connection at our steps once we backed in. The site next to us had one they were utilizing, so we couldn't figure out the placement of the extra one.
Great easy in & out park for an overnight stay. We stopped in late and left early the next morning. Gravel site (back-in) was not very level, and the area we backed up to was muddy, but it appeared it was due to recent addition of sod and grass. Front desk staff was friendly. We didn't use the wifi or see any other amenities, but weren't looking either. We would stay again if in the area.
Great location - only a dune away from the beach. There is a nice boardwalk across the dune as well as a fresh-water rinse station. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. The restroom/shower facilities were immaculately clean. The sites were a little close together, and there were a number of sticker-burrs. The park charges $3.00 per person per day for more than 2 people at a site. The rate of $42 per night includes an extra $9.00 we were charged because of our 3 children. We will return, but the price (and published increase effective April 2009 of $4.00 per person over 2 per site) will limit returns.
This is a nice, secluded campground with State Natural Area. We were too early in the season to see the changing of the leaves, but had a great time in this beautiful park. There were several hiking trails, the shortest of which was great even for three 4 year olds. And, the entire park (trails included) was immaculately clean. We never saw trash of any kind. A few of the trees were a little low getting to the RV area of the park, but once you get to the RV loop, it was clear, recently mowed, and easily accessible. Sites were nicely spaced. I was able to maneuver our 38 foot toy hauler with little hassle. The dump station was tight to get into because of the trees. The roads to the park from Bandera were steep and had many curves. Just make sure you take your time. We will definitely return. The bathhouse was clean in the mornings, but sure was warm in the afternoons. Each site has a nice cover over the picnic table, and also has a fire pit/grill. It would have been nice if the ranger station sold ice and firewood, but there is a little store about 4 miles down the road.
We stayed for 4 days (3 nights) over Labor Day weekend. Although this is an older park, it is being maintained in excellent fashion. The bathrooms and showers were clean each morning, but with use during the day deteriorated. Our site was great, but I saw others around us that had some sewer connections that extended out of the ground and made dumping difficult. This is our 3rd or 4th visit to this park, and we will definitely return. The park owners are extremely friendly and active around the park on a continual basis, and even helped us navigate our new larger RV into our site. There were a lot of kids activities to participate in throughout the weekend, and Yogi Bear is always a hit. Our group ended up totaling 25 people in 4 RV's and 2 tents, and we all committed to return Labor Day next year.
Let me start by saying that the lady at the office was extremely friendly. We found this out because we were in the office changing sites 2 times before we finally found one that would accommodate our toy hauler. The tree limbs are extremely low hanging, and the park has trees in places that make navigation difficult at best. There were a couple of rain showers during our 2 night stay, and the park roads and sites became a caliche and muddy mess. Location on the lake was nice, and the park-like setting was beautiful. We saw deer and turkeys in the park at dusk. Park offers a Good Sam discount, but only if you call for reservations. They would let us take the discount because we made our reservations online through their own website. Because of the difficulty navigating the park, I doubt we will stay here again.
Spent 4th of July weekend at this park, and don't have one negative thing to say. The park was near capacity, but the amenities and facilities were great. Clean pool, hot tub, showers, restrooms, and manicured lawns. There was a 4th of July Parade, hamburger social, ice cream social, and an awesome fireworks display. Lots of families, kids, and respectable RV'ers. We'll definitely return.
Nice COE park on Canyon Lake. We stayed in a family site with 3 hook-ups, which had a large private pavilion. Drawback of a big pavilion was that there were no trees in our area. Other areas had nice trees and smaller sun-shades. Sites were all level. There was no playground, and the grounds could have been a little better kept. The swimming area was a short drive from our site, and with the lake level down, not as nice or clean as we expected. Park hosts were as friendly as could be, but the cleanup crews were rough. Dump station was clean. A strong storm came through on Saturday that wreaked havoc on the tenters in the campground and tore many awnings off, but weather before and after was exceptional. Nice looking boat ramps and dock facilities. Sites had an awesome BBQ pit and fire ring. We will return and weren't disappointed with the lack of activities, as we had driven through and knew what to expect. Everyone around us was friendly!
There is a long, winding and steep road to access this park that is beautifully located on Medina Lake, but the directional signs are great. Friendly staff and owner at the office for check in. Most sites appear to be shaded, and ours was pretty close to level. The hookups left a lot to be desired - sewer was up out of the ground about 7 inches, which made draining tough. The cable was a wire coming up out of the ground on the opposite side of the pad site, and was a tripping hazard to the kids. Pool was cloudy, and hot tub wasn't hot - just the same temperature as the pool. Men's restroom and showers were great, but the women's was in need of cleaning and had standing water throughout. We will return, but it would be nice if the facilities were maintained better. Dock wasn't very boat friendly, and there wasn't a great place available for swimming in the lake.
Great destination site. Convenient to Canton First Monday Trade Days (21 miles) and Shreveport (just over 2 hours). Site required a little leveling, and there was some road noise, but this has to be on of the nicest kept parks we seen. Great restrooms and showers. Nice lake for fishing, clean rally room, playground for the kids, and shaded area by the pool and hot-tub. Staff was very friendly. We will definitely return.
Second trip to this park in a year, and we will return again. This year (2008), they modified their pool rules and now allow children in the heated indoor pool during certain hours. It was a great change, and the main reason we returned there in the cold weather. Sites are clean and level, and the greenbelt to the river is nice. They have added a deer feeder, and we saw numerous animals over a long weekend. We were bumped from our originally selected (when reservation was made) site by a long term camper wanting the same one, so we understood. Drawback was that we were shuffled away from sight of the playground. Weather was so cold that we only utilized the playground once or twice. Instead, we took advantage of their awesome 6,000 square foot indoor/outdoor pavilion that was heated. Kids rode scooters and played with a soccer ball in a controlled environment when it was below freezing outside. Only negative to report was a WiFi signal so weak we couldn't access the internet or emails. It worked fine on our last trip there, so I assume it was just our distance from the signal.
This was our second time to this park this year. Went over Labor Day weekend, and it was packed. The owners / staff did an excellent job of keeping activities going on to occupy the full campground. The restrooms were not as clean as before, but over a holiday weekend with that many campers, it was to be expected - especially with the number of tent campers that were on site utilizing the facilities. Nothing against tents, but with no alternative, they must all use the restroom and shower facilities. We love the park; the owners are great; we will definitely return as this is our kids' favorite place to camp.
Beautiful, well-maintained park. The shower/restroom facilities were air-conditioned and fairly well kept. Another non-air-conditioned restroom was not as clean. Dock at boat-ramp was small. Wifi wasn't accessible from our site, although park indicated wifi was available. Swimming area was close, but not as pleasant as pictured. Still a great park, and we will return.
Stayed here with the FCRV Trailblazers from San Antonio. Nicely manicured quiet park, great club house, mostly pull-thru sites (not completely level though), well spaced sites with lots of shade. Pool was still closed, and is undergoing renovations to fence it off to increase the safety of the area. Playground for kids was nice, just a little too close to a very large pile of old firewood (worried about snakes). Easy access to a nice creek for shallow swimming, kayaking, or fishing. Would visit again if in the area.
Beautifully manicured park with a well-kept greenbelt of 100 yards between the RV sites and the river. There are also nice walking trails all along the river and greenbelt area. The playground, suspension bridge and tree-house were great for the kids. The only kid-friendly pool was outdoors and unheated. We loved the park, but were disappointed and discounted the rating because the only heated pool is for adults only. The RV site was level, but there was a pot-hole where our king-pin stabilizer needed to be placed. We will definitely return, but will wait until the water warms up so the kids can swim.
This park is located on the San Marcos River, but other than the river and a heated indoor pool, there were no amenities to offer for small kids. The park is fine for a quick overnight stay, but we won't return because of the lack of additional amenities. The public bath house wasn't convenient, as you had to leave a deposit to get a key. The front-desk manager put us close to the pool, but we didn't realize the bath-house was adjacent to us as well, and there was traffic to and from this building all night.
We stayed here on our first outing with a new fifth wheel. The owners were on-site, and extremely helpful - not only in locating an easy site for "first-timers", but in helping with hook-ups, etc. The weather was cold so we didn't get to take part in too many outdoor activities, but the kids really enjoyed the indoor heated swimming pool. Not only was the pool heated, but the room was temperature controlled as well. Although Yogi doesn't regularly appear in cold weather, he did come out for a special hay-ride. The owners went above and beyond in helping make the first trip with our kids a fun and memorable experience that would encourage excitement for future outings. There was also an indoor gathering place with a fireplace, tv, games, kitchen, etc. where guests congregated at night for popcorn, roasted marshmallow's and story time. We will definitely stay here again.
Campground was convenient to First Monday Trade Days grounds - only 1 mile away. RV park guests have access to continental breakfast in hotel. Although some sites are pull-through, the roads are narrow and don't allow enough room to navigate when arriving or departing. We were fortunate that others departed before us so we could use their sites to drive-through when leaving. There is no shuttle, even though the website indicates one is available. Didn't use showers. They appeared clean, but dated. Same for rest rooms. The grounds weren't mowed, although they did try to do some during our 4 day stay.
