This is an OK park. The campsites are nice, treed and well may maintained. The "stream view" is not much. Barely a stream - not enough for swimming or kayaking. Saw some people fishing. The toilets were good, but the showers were terrible. It's a good park for bicycling. Really, the best part about this park is its close proximity to Lockhart and the BBQ it is famous for. Be sure to go to Smitty's while you are there.
A nice, quiet park. The Llano river runs through the park. According to the ranger, it is spring fed, therefore pretty comstant level. Nice for swimming and fishing. Campsites are nicely spaced and have mature trees. Most have shade and those that don't have covered picnic tables. The river is not close to the camping, but there is plenty of parking near the river access. Bathrooms are nice and kept clean. No phone (AT&T) or TV reception.
This is a gem of the southwest. I wish I could post a photo or 100 to show you the magnificent views of this canyon. There is no view from the campsites, but only a short car ride for those who don't like hiking. And if you do enjoy hiking, bring your hiking boots! And your camera. My suggestion would to come in the spring or fall. August was way too hot. I am a Texan and should have known better. We did get to enjoy the canyon in the cool of the morning. The campsites are nicely spaced and each has a covered picnic table. Not much shade, but there are trees that give a little buffer from neighbors. There is one main restroom/bathing facility. Mostly clean - showers could use some care.
We have stayed here many times and we will be back again and again. Big park with very big sites - most are. We always try to get one of the many lakefront spots as we have kayaks which makes it very convenient for us. Some of the restrooms are in need of a makeover, but most are good. My only complaint (which applies to all Texas state parks) is that you cannot reserve a particular site - it's first come first served in the day you are to arrive.
This is a gorgeous park. Immaculately laid out and maintained with beautiful landscaping. The area is beautiful, as well. Sites are very large, level and easy to get in. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our rate reflects Good Sam (GS) discount which they honored even though they are not a GS park. With all this said, we will probably not stay here again, as it is a little remote for us. They have a Colorado Springs address, but the park is about 10 miles south of the city proper. A lot of older people (we are older too) so might be a little boring for the younger set. We are very active, so we found ourselves leaving the park for the day to find activities which called for a lot of driving. But if you are looking for a super quiet park where you just want to relax - this is it!
The best RV park we have ever stayed in. The only complaint that I have is that they only allow a 2 week stay every 45 days. Beautiful views from every direction. Facilities are immaculate. Even if you don't camp here, the hiking trails are worth a visit. Well marked and well maintained. We hiked as many of the 20 miles worth of trails as our bodies would allow. We even came back while camping at a different park just to hike there. We will come back here as often as we can.
We stayed our 2 week limit here. What a great park! Huge beyond belief. Reservoir for boating - we had our kayaks. Running, walking and biking trails galore. Also have a RC airplane "air strip". Fun to watch. Sites are large and most are pull thrus. One word to campers who might want to stretch the rules or not comply to the 25 mph speed limit - the park rangers are everywhere and they enforce all the rules. Made us feel safe.
We have stayed here twice on our way to Colorado. We will stay here every time as long as the park is open. Easy access and convenient. Super friendly staff. Park is not fancy and appears a little old, but it has a friendly feel and we felt safe staying here.
We stayed here as just an overnighter on our way home. Easy on and off the interstate. Very close to the airport - plane noise. For that purpose, this is an OK park. Many, many full time residents. The staff member we met was friendly and helpful. With all that said, the park gave me a creeped out feeling. Could have been the fact that 80% of the sites are permanent residents, not really sure. Might find a different place next time through.
