Great park. For being packed with people the restrooms were very clean. This is a great park for families. It was impressive to walk around and see "Garner Family since XXX." I think the oldest we saw was 1959. Old Baldy is a fun climb. The dances are fun but as a dad with 2 daughters ... I didn't like it. We are already booked for Garner for Spring Break 2015.
Great campground. $22 for full hookups and nice sized lots. We had a church outing here during our camping trip. Lots of room for the kids to run and play. This is a great park so close to Houston. The sites are level and they do a good job keeping the restrooms clean.
Nice park. We enjoyed the trails. The sites were nice sized. Gave us room to setup all of our "stuff." Bathrooms were okay ... I said clean because they were cleaned daily but some campers don't respect the fact that others use the same facilities. I can't blame the park for some inconsiderate folks.
Great park. Nice and quiet. Sites were level but lots of cracks and holes in the blacktop. Sites were thin and elevated so our picnic table was actually sloped down on one side. Bathrooms were cleaned daily and looked good. The walk around the lake is very nice. We didn't get a chance to do the bike trails as we forgot to pack our helmets. I would stay here again.
Great state park. Amazing views. We had site #1, which gave us an okay view of the water and was near the boat ramp. The sites were large and level. We spent most of our time in Hot Springs so we didn't take part in any of the activities that the state park had to offer (there were several per day). Lots of great "finds" in rocks and just things to look at. Spent an hour skipping rocks with my two daughters. The drive in and out is steep; do be warned, low gear is needed.
The campground and water park were really nice. The showers in the clubhouse near our site were excellent and well kept. For some reason in the area we were in (Site 91) there was a sewer smell, not just at our site but in the whole area. We could smell it at the pool and clubhouse. Also, while we had a fire ring we didn't have a BBQ grate or pit. Normally there is a grate that flips over the fire ring that will allow you to cook on it but this was just a small ring. We will stay here again.
We have come here a lot over the last couple of years. I think we have at least 6 trips. Over the last 12 months they have made a lot of upgrades to the park - some good and some bad. We were in site 31 and I can't believe how close we were to the site next to us and behind us. They have turned that row, that used to be a pull through street into back-in sites. This doubles the amount of campers in that row and it is TIGHT. Our back door was less than 4 feet from the next sites sewer hookup. Just very cramped. The new lazy river, updated slides and activities were great. But how packed it was really limited our enjoyment. The other thing, which the park can't control, is the lack of respect people have for campsites. We constantly had people cutting through our site to get to the rows behind us instead of walking 15 feet to the side and going down the road. This forced us to keep our dog inside all the time.
Campgrounds are clean and quiet. We stayed at one of the sites that have full hook-ups. From our site (26) we were somewhat able to see the other sites but for the most part the ground covering limits the view into other sites. This gives a nice impression of being "alone." There weren't maps available when we arrived so finding our site was a little frustrating. Once there we had a good time. The day use area was very clean and laid out very well.
We stayed here with another family. We had sites 11 and 12 which gave us a large space along the creek. It was dried up so there wasn't any fishing, etc available. The kids did enjoy exploring the riverbed. I would certainly stay here again. The pool is a nice size. The park is close to town and the barbeque places that Lockhart is well known for.
