We camped one night at this County Park. It is located on Market Street one mile west of town. Campground is on a lightly travelled highway and the sites are back-in and can accommodate up to 25' rigs. A stream runs through the park and a small bridge leads to the back half of the park where freestyle camping is available. Restroom consisted of a two seat vault toilet. Each site was tree lined and unpaved and overall this is a very small and quiet park. No host and an iron ranger is available. Sites are on the short side and I would not recommend any rigs larger than 25' even try to enter. Road is rough getting in and there is no turn around. We would camp here again.
We opted for Diaz Lake because of the federal shutdown in mid Oct 2013. Lone Pine NFS was out first choice. Mid week was fine, free style camping. Just find a spot and go for it. Weekend got busy and it got a little crowded but still OK. Could not imagine what it would have been like in summer. Probably not pleasant. Water spigots around the lake but nothing else. Sites were not level but we just picked a spot that worked out for us. No camphost or anybody else to complain to after hours but we were lucky and our neighbors were OK. Convenient to town and quiet. Lake is very small but some clown in a motorboat had to race back and forth Sunday morning for a couple hours. Chased the kayakers away. We would not have a problem staying here again but there are much better campgrounds in the area that would probably be our first choice. We camped in a trailer.
Five nights Monday thru Friday nights. Quiet and the place did not ramp up on the weekend. Not a party campground at all. Most of our neighbors were retirees. Very quiet and overall a very nice park (for the money!). Like most Cal State Parks, maintenance to the facility seemed non-existent. Overgrown weeds and dead plants all over. Restrooms clean, but no evidence of any ongoing maintenance and in a few years this relatively new park will likely look like the rest of them. We would certainly stay here again and camped in a trailer.
Wonderful private park. Very small with only 8 sites. Most were long term but all were well maintained and had newer rigs. One block to Lake LBJ and a fishing dock. In the middle of town but quiet. An absolutely gorgeous clubhouse. This park is a real gem. Reservations are essential. Owners live nearby and take great pride in their park. Absolutely would come back and would recommend it to anyone who wants quiet and a quality park.
A gem of a state park. Located on a 9 hole golf course. Very scenic and quiet. Close to town. Lots to do in the area. Utilities all worked well. Clean, well maintained park. Small and intimate. Made many friends among the other campers. We were here for 4 nights and hated to leave. May come back as a host someday. Wonderful place if you want quiet and calm. Great trails through out the park. Great BBQ restaurants nearby in the historic town. We'd stay here again.
Very nice campground. We camped in the trees to avoid the wind which was smart. Very windy which chased some of the beach campers into the trees as well. The hardy souls stayed out there and seemed to have fun but it's not for me. Blowing sand and spray out there. Very popular for fishing. Pier and boat lands were well used. Very nice park. No Wi-Fi. Busy on the weekend but not unbearable at all. We'd stay here again.
We stayed as part of a rally and got a special rate. Large park with no full timers. 1 mile to Bandera. Close to the road and a little noise from motorcycles but heck, this is the Hill Country in Texas so expect that! Very well run, friendly staff, large sites, and lots of trees. We used the cable and also hooked up the satellite. Nice park. We'll return.
We stayed 3 nights on back canal side of the park. Very secluded park popular for fishing. Many families. Other than the group directly across from us that were up all night, the place was quiet. I used earplugs so they didn't bother me but I would have expected the host to quiet them down at 10 or 11 which didn't happen. A maintenance guy told me this is typical esp on weekends here. Very scenic and well run campground. We'd stay here again, with earplugs.
Very nice park. It is crawling in the winter with snow birds but in May the place is deserted. Very nice and newer park. Facilities are top notch. We came through here in winter 2013 and had fun chatting with all the Canadians. We had the place to ourselves this time of year. Very nice place off the main highway for an overnite or longer. I'll come back here again.
This is a private park near the highway but noise wasn't a problem. Very nice and well groomed. A dairy was upwind and got "ripe" when the wind shifted. But, the prevailing winds are away from the park so this doesn't seem to be an ongoing problem. Owners live on site and watch things closely. Didn't see any full timers but some of the residents had been there for extended periods, most likely for work. Wi-Fi was good. We would return.
Very nice park off the highway between Eager and Springerville. Large park and many trees. All the sites were well gravelled and level. Utilities all worked well. Good wifi. We enjoyed Bear Paw and the towns so much we stayed an extra night. Very friendly. About 1/3 of the sites had long term rv's which are used as vacation homes. All were well kept. Management lives on site and has owned the park 15 years. They take great pride in the park and it shows. Loved it so much we might bring a trailer back an park it as our second home. Very nice! We'll absolutely come back again.
Very nice state park. We stayed in the premium sites on the lake for 4 nights. Very spacious but not very level. All else was great. Gorgeous views, quiet, good shade, but we were able to get a decent satellite TV signal. Very enjoyable. Would absolutely recommend and stay here again.
We stayed 6 nights during the Round Top Antique Show. Clean, well maintained park. About 1/2 full of full timers including a couple of really run down trailers, but the park was quiet, and we had no problems. Wi-fi was a pay service, not included with the fee. We did not use it so I cannot commit on it. Bath and laundry facilities were very clean and worked fine. Would stay here again.
We spent 4 nights here during Trade Days. A very well run, clean and well maintained campground. Large sites on concrete pads. Spacious. Well groomed grounds. A little expensive but worth it. Restrooms spotless and well stocked. Laundry close by. Close but not walking distance to Trade Days. Campground runs a shuttle but we chose to drive so as to avoid hauling our purchases on the bus. Would stay here again for an extended period.
We stayed at this campground twice on our trip, 4 weeks apart. Both times park was less than half full, very quiet, and a pleasant experience. We were in the Pecan Grove which is a little close to the highway but not a significant problem. Trails were well marked, restrooms were very clean, and park is well maintained. Staff friendly. No wi-fi signal. Would stay here again.
We spent 2 nights here. A little hard to get to from the interstate but definitely worth the trip. I highly recommend this and other Texas state parks. Very clean, well maintained, and very helpful staff. Cable TV didn't work and wi-fi was so weak that I couldn't log on. Hey, this is camping, don't we go to get away from some of this? Anyway, I was surprised to find the bathroom actually heated when I visited it early one morning. Would stay again (for sure).
We stopped here one night while on the road. Quick check in, front desk clerk was very business like and impersonal with the customer ahead of us. We started chatting when it was our turn an he became quite friendly and informative about the area. Sites were basic, level, and spacious. Utilities worked well and the campground was quiet in spite of our closeness to the highway. Would stay again.
