We love this place because we love Breaux Bridge, but it actually ranks about a 7.5 due to a total lack of shade or privacy. It's a great one night stop off I-10. The area has many great eateries and plenty to do. Recommend.
Great place. Excellent bike paths. Beautiful beach. Nicest state park we've seen so far. Very well maintained. Close to all types of stores and restaurants, should you require them. Could easily spend 2 weeks here. Recommend.
A pretty park,in need of some TLC. Good place to stay for a few nights while visiting the Mississippi Sandhill Crane NWR. Be prepared for a few "semi-permanent" residents in rigs and tents that might raise an eyebrow. Nice biking trails.
Wow! This park was fantastic, a 9.5. Easy in and out. Nice big sites, not exactly level, but better than Inks Lake which is nearby. Beautiful lodge facilities, a restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We didn’t eat there, so can’t report on the quality of the cooking, but the menu was interesting and varied. Lovely, clean pool with a great view of Lake Buchanan. The lake is very low right now, so it looks rather sad, but still scenic. Bluebonnets and wildflowers everywhere. Miles and miles of gorgeous walking trails. Birds galore. Saw and photographed the endangered Black-capped Vireo. Lots of Painted Buntings. Highly recommend this place for a Spring trip, April being the choice month for birding and flowers. Saw many snakes, so be aware. Almost rated a full “10”. Highly recommended.
Inks Lake is a wonderful place for kids and families. The place was packed and noisy on the weekends, empty and peaceful during the weekdays. Great hiking, biking, and water-related activities. Very scenic. Lots to do and see, and the lake level remains normal even during a bad drought thanks to underground aquifers. The park can accommodate 40’ rigs, but just barely. We squished our slide topper trying to make a very tight left turn while exiting the park. Almost all sites are out of level to an extreme degree. I would suggest arriving Monday-Thursday to select a good site, and be sure to have plenty of leveling blocks. We had 6, they were inadequate. All in all a very nice campground.
This resort has wonderful cabins, two great pools, an adults-only RV area and a very pretty location, so why only a “7” rating? The regular sites are packed in, parking-lot style. If you stay here, choose an executive site if you want some space. The location is fantastic for it’s easy-on/easy-off I-10 convenience, but be prepared to hear the hum of traffic whizzing by… all night long. No walking trails, no seclusion… pretty much party central. Seems like a wonderful spot for a Rally or a family reunion. The property is beautifully maintained, we’ll certainly stay here again when traveling the interstate. Recommended, but do realize what you’ll be getting.
This lovely RV park was quite a terrific find. We needed a home base close to Austin. Dripping Springs is just west of the city with easy access to all Austin highlights. Some of the sites are nicely shaded and situated on a charming little creek. Although there is no pool or lake, the serenity and charm make up for the lack of “Resort” style facilities. As a matter of fact, we left Cottonwood Creek to spend some time further west at a much larger RV Resort that had cabins for some visiting friends. The big place was just “OK” and we wished we were back at the Creek. The magic of this property can be found on the walking trails that are lovingly tended by the owner. They are mulched with cedar, making the paths aromatic and soft underfoot. A delightful nature walk by anyone’s reckoning. Wildlife was abundant. I even saw a coyote! If you have kids, you might want to go elsewhere, but if you want a great place for quiet grown-ups… here it is. This Park will be our Home every time we visit the Austin area. Highly recommended.
