We were just passing through late afternoon so we wanted to stop for one night. The man at the front desk was not friendly. I didn't have our KOA card so he became irritated that he would have to look up our name. Most places just do that automatically. I should have just turned around then. When my husband came in at the tale end of registration we were given a list of what could run on 30 amp - no real explanation. We said thank you and walked out. We know what can run on 30 amps and everything was fine that late afternoon running even with one air running, etc. In the morning I got up early and there was no power. I had noticed that my computer had charged over night but no power for coffee. After a while it all came on so I proceeded to make coffee and might have had one light on and then it all went out. We wanted to be on the road early and the office was not open to tell him the problem. On the road my husband wanted to call to tell him the power was off and when my husband started to tell him the story he started in yelling at him for overloading the system. My husband could not get a word in so finally hung up. They need new power boxes desperately as it goes in and out of power. Wit out our regulator I would be very afraid to plug into it at all. Do your self a favor and plan to stay anywhere but here.

This is truly one of the nicest parks we have ever stayed at. It is huge and sites are well spaced. Staff was most friendly. I needed a paper cutter for a project and they handed it to me for the morning. Cute little store on site, Acres of grass to walk the dogs all around the lake shore. We took a second row site facing the lake, but could see the lake out our front window. All roads and sites are paved and grass surrounds everything. No discounts for length of stay but they did refund our money when our plans had changed and we wanted to leave a day early. Our family was staying at the Great Wolf Lodge about two miles away and same to downtown and stores. Just real quiet and pleasant.

This is a great state park with lots of amenities about 15 miles south of Austin. The sites are spacious but most have a slope. We were not able to get our 40' RV completely level. There were other spots but we wanted site 12. There is a paved 3-mile walking/biking path around the park as well as other walks, historical sites to visit, and picnic tables on the river. It is pretty remote and the closest Walmart and shopping is a minimum of 5 miles away. Lots of trees and grass at most sites and not all sites were satellite accessible. They charged us $31 a night but added a $6 per person per day entrance fee. We would stay here again.

We were going to stay one night at this charming little state park and ended up begging for two more nights. Yes, it is one of only two parks in Texas with an actual 9 hole golf course in the park. The head ranger and staff were all incredibly friendly and accommodating to our needs. Golf is inexpensive and great for what it was, and there are plenty of areas to walk the dogs. The RV parking is divided into two areas, an older area for 10 tents and smaller rigs (not much grass), and a grassy "circle" area with pavement pads for backing in 10 large rigs, which haas full hook-ups and is much nicer. Some have views of the golf course, but all face out so have views other than each other. I did reservations on line with Texas Parks and I am sure this is a popular park. Will stay here again. Golf all day and BBQ at night, and located only about two miles from downtown.

We read in a pamphlet for Brenham that the county fairgrounds took RV's. Now realize this is not an RV park of any type. The fairgrounds have installed some power, sewer, and water for their guests and open it up to visitors. It is a grassy/gravel area out past the arena. We were the only ones camped there, and you get some road noise, but what made it nice for us is that we could walk our large dogs all over the fairgrounds as nothing was going on at the time. They do have trash cans available, but this may be the only amenity. The man at the office will give you directions, and you probably want to call ahead. It is about 1.5 miles from town on Blue Bell road. Yes, the ice cream factory is down the road, which is a great tour if that is your thing.

We found this park very nice from the friendly man at check in to the cleanliness of the park. We were up front so our sites were not as tight and had a view of the pool area instead of other sites. Concrete pads and table area surrounded by nice grass. Easy to walk large dogs around the outside perimeter fence. No facilities. This was only a few miles from the George Bush Presidential Library which made it very nice. It is very important to read past reviews on how to get in to it or ask them when reserving.

We found this park to be clean; dog owners picked up; nice area of grass near the water; and very close to all the attractions. Just a mile to Kemah boardwalk, and 15 minutes to Johnson Space Center. Galveston was 30 mi down Hwy 146; close to Target and Walmart. But as the last review said, just too tight! There is literally 6 feet of grass between concrete pads and they are not wide pads. If you were to put up a lawn chair you would be staring at your own vehicle or the neighbors huge truck just a few feet away. We got to listen to a small dog barking for four days as it was left all day in the neighboring trailer. Poor thing. We walked our dogs to the water front area and then east onto a vacant lot, and there was plenty of room there. Most of the park is full timers who must work in the area and seem to park all over as they don't fit in their own sites. We must have had the same issues with rain as last reviewer. You didn't have room to walk around your RV without being on the saturated grass area. The check in gals were nice, but the park is just too pricey and too cramped for enjoyment. OK for a short time, but our four days was plenty long there.

This is a pretty nice park but pricey. There is a nice commons lodge next to the registration area. The staff was very nice and helpful. They have some "events" listed on their calendar. The WiFi is really good in the commons, and the park is serviced by Tengointernet. It worked pretty well but they ask for big projects for you to go to the clubhouse. The park is clean and spotted with lots of palm trees and the adjoining property is a casual restaurant called Pier 19, which is decent food and you get a 10% off coupon for your stay which is nice. You are within a 15 minute walk to two of the top trip advisor restaurants. Nice bike riding and walking around the area. The only drawback is that the sites are pretty tight. There is room for your slide outs but you do hear your neighbors with windows open. We would stay here again, or we might check out the neighboring county park.

We walked into the lobby and were greeted by the owner. She introduced herself and made us feel welcome right off the bat. We checked into the "overnight section" of the park which was nice as there were not many people there. The lots are big and everything was very clean. There is grass between the sites and lots of room to walk the dogs in the surrounding area. Sites were level and all gravel. There is some road noise but it did die down after dark.

Upon checking we noticed how clean and well laid out the park was with lots of trees around. The staff was super friendly and we briefly met the owner. He was very interested in making sure we were close to the far end of the park for our dogs, etc. Large sites, level, gravel, cute star gazing area, RV wash pit, horseshoe area. Easy access. We will go back here on our way out of the Big Bend NP.

We chose this place since it was listed as being in Carlsbad and we were visiting the park. But this campground is 18 miles north of Carlsbad and park is south of the city! The staff were nice. OK dusty gravel sites. Mostly full timers and in our row they had not picked up dog waste lately. The biggest drawback again is that it is not in Carlsbad.

Just as others have said small sites with a shared covered picnic table and phone poles between. The man who checked us in said we would not be able to open our slides on one side but we wanted to be close to the caverns so we went up for a look. I choose site J2, and it seems like the biggest one, and we did get our slides out with not much room in between. Wi-Fi was spotty, but all in all it met our needs just fine. Stayed one night in. Would do it again to be close to the park.

This is a big parking lot, not gravel but more like hard pan dirt. They do have some grass sites but for smaller rigs. Great place to walk your dog on their huge grassy field. There were several full timers staying here. Very friendly check in folks and the price was right. There is nothing very close to the fairgrounds, but we stayed here to run over to Saharita to see the Titan Missile site which was very worthwhile.

We were looking for an over night and this one was right off the interstate 1 block: easy access. The gentleman who checked us in was very friendly and informative of the area, including probably one of the safest border crossings 30 miles south. This is a big gravel lot but it worked for an overnighter. An Escapees park but you don't have to have the membership. No WiFi except in the building. We did drive around and saw the other RV parks on Pine Street and we made the right choice! We were in a 40' rig and would stop again.

We found the owner friendly and gave us good info of the area. They have a nice little RV accessories shop in the check-in building. The place was tidy as well as very clean bathrooms. All spaces are level gravel and clean, easy access on all sites and sites are wide enough. There are some trees and some shelters for picnic tables. The host did say they put the chain up around 6:00pm so unless they expect you they won't be around and you can't check in. We drove by the other parks, and found this to be the nicest and the price was right. We were here in a 40' rig and would stay again as it is handy being right off the freeway.
