Beautiful little RV Park just off of I-49. There were 3 (2 unoccupied) RV's that appeared to be permanent, but other than those we had our choice of sites. Small lake with pan sized perch, but owner requested catch and release only, so back they went.
The location is great. Beaches were very nice and peaceful. The campsites had plenty of room but was really just an open field with paved campsites. Roads were narrow and many vehicles were parked partially in the road including at the first turn into our loop which prevented the 5th wheel ahead of me from making the turn until one of the two vehicles could be moved. Took about 15 minutes. Restrooms were clean. Didn't ever use the showers. There were 4 individual unisex shower rooms. We would definitely stay here again.
This is an older RV Park with mostly permanent park models. The park is very clean and the staff was very friendly. Roads in the park are extremely narrow, but the corner site I was assigned was easy to get into once I approached from the right direction. Cable didn't work, but I was able to pick up about 30 stations on my antenna. Laundry facilities require a card that you have to get from the office which was closed when I went to do laundry. And the laundry room is open to the outdoors, so as I walked in I spotted a large snake crawling under one of the washers.
Very friendly and helpful office staff. We stopped here for the night on our way to Florida from Texas. The RV park itself is just a large open field with several rows of RV sites. Nothing fancy, but the real attraction here is the Casino a block away. There is also a shuttle that will pick you up and drop you at the front door of the Casino. This really isn't a destination RV park, but would definitely stay here again while passing through.
We arrived at the park at 5:10. The office closes at 5, but fortunately there happened to be someone still there closing up. They gave us our choice of sites for the night. Mosquitos were horrible, but this is Florida. Sites were small but adequate. We chose one of several paved (handicapped) sites next to the restroom and with some minor difficulties was able to back into the site. We stayed here just one night on our way to the Keys and I cancelled the reservations I had at the park for our return. It is a basic state park relatively close to the Tampa area. If that is what you're looking for then it might be a good choice, but I doubt that we will return.
Very beautiful state park. Campground was clean and neat. All the sites were roomy and the roads easily accommodated my truck and 30' trailer. Bathrooms were exceptionally clean. The stroll to the beach is a bit long, but it is well maintained and well worth the effort. The beach was not crowded compared to those closer to town with all the hotels, etc. We had about 50 yards or more of beach to ourselves. We stayed here on our way from Texas to the Keys and tried to book a few nights for our return trip but it was full for the dates that I needed. Will definitely return though.
Roads are very tight pulling a 30' trailer and backing into the sites. Sites are very close together, however, you hardly know that your neighbors are there due to dense vegetation between sites. Water service is at the front of the site and for every other space is on the wrong side of the campsite. Bathrooms showed their age, but were tolerable though the showers could use a good cleaning with bleach to get the old mold discoloration off. Beaches are very small compared to what I expected from the brochures. Of course the main attraction here is the location. It is 37 miles from Key West and all the activities along the way. I definitely recommend the snorkeling trip to Looe Key that you can take directly from the park. The staff at the park were all extremely friendly and helpful as well. If this park were located anywhere else I would probably give it a lower rating, but of course it is all about location in the Keys.
Very nice state park. I stayed here in the Blackjack Group area for a Regional Dutch Oven Gathering. Fantastic group setup other than the sites weren't designed for units with slides and awnings. The campsites all circle a central area with a pavilion. Perfect setup for our group to cook and share meals. The lake is gorgeous and appeared to be full unlike many other Texas lakes. I assume this is because it is spring fed. I will definitely return.
Very nice spacious sites. Most if not all sites had a large covered patio with picnic table, grill and fire pit. My site was a back-in as are most in the campground, but I had no problem backing in unassisted. My only complaint is the restrooms. There isn't a knob to select the water temp, only a button that provides a fixed time (approximately 2 minutes) per push. Lots of hiking trails. The lake is down extremely as are most Texas lakes, but what is left is very beautiful.
Beautiful state park. Very well maintained. All facilities were clean and in excellent condition. Camping sites were large and well spaced. We attended the National Dutch Oven Gathering here. The park staff were very involved in helping with the event and organized an "Adopt a Chef" program where the general public was adopted by one of the dutch oven cooks and learned to cook a recipe with all the ingredients being provided by the program. Very enjoyable weekend. We will definitely return.
The sites are a mixture of pull-throughs and back-ins with adequate space between sites. I was assigned a pull-through and was directed to travel around the loop to the right in order to pull in with the utilities correctly positioned. The road through the loop is bi-directional and too narrow in my opinion for multiple rigs traveling opposite directions, but this wasn't a problem when I arrived in our 20' trailer. Portions of the park are being repaired due to severe flooding in 2013 and therefore closed. This really only impacts the walk-in tent sites and a picnic area. Both were still accessible for hiking. The river and the falls are clean and the water is crystal clear. In places I could see 10-15 to the bottom though the majority of the water doesn't appear to be this deep. My dog loved playing in the numerous puddles in the bedrock. This State Park is just minutes from the airport and not much further from downtown Austin. Very easy to find and yet isolated except for the occasional jet taking off/landing. My only complaint was that the restroom nearest my camp site did not have showers though there were showers on the other side of the loop. Not really a complaint, but in general this is an old state park and the trails and facilities reflect the age. Maintenance appears to be generally current, however the hiking/bike paths were rough in places and I didn't feel comfortable riding my bike on them. They are definitely better suited to mountain bikes rather than my recumbent that I brought with me.
Fantastic campground. The owners were very pleasant, he backed my TT in for me. Located next to the Durango-Silverton train tracks, so you can get some great pics of the train as it comes and goes. Bath/showers were cleaned well each morning. We will definitely return the next time we are in Silverton.
Very nice, clean campground. Great for a night or two. As others have stated there is a nearby train that toots its horn a bit, but it didn't bother us at all. Would definitely stay here again when passing through.
Campground is located at the end of Tunnel Road, so virtually no traffic noise. Beautiful views. Campsites are generally small, and the road through the campground is tight. I pulled a 20' travel trailer through it, but this is probably the largest that could get through. I had to back my trailer about 30' to get into my site, but once there the site was extremely roomy. Wildlife was abundant, including deer that wandered throughout the campground and a random bear or two. Bath/shower was clean every morning, but of course the campers had it filthy by nightfall. I would definitely stay here again. It was my wife's favorite campsite of the 5 or 6 that we stayed at on this vacation.
They couldn't get the sites any smaller or closer together. Personally, I will never go back. My 20' travel trailer barely fit in the space and I had to park my tow vehicle across the site partially in the road or give up the use of my awning. There were some good things about the campground. Laundry facilities were clean with plenty of washers and dryers. Showers were clean but they are located at the main office rather than in the actual campground. The only purpose of not locating them at the campground is they wouldn't be able to charge for their use (2 free showers per night per paid campsite) by those not camping in the campground.
