Broke Mill was a great place to spend January. The sites are well spaced apart. The facilities are kept immaculate. The Thursday night dinner is good and the music is well done. The only minor drawback is the road noise during the day from hwy 90. By 9pm it was over with, and did not bother my sleeping anytime. The owner is present frequently. He and all the staff are very pleasant and agreeable. This has a great chance of being my home again next December and January.
No facilities for kids, laundry,rec hall, restrooms or showers. This is for self contained units only. The pads are dirt/rock and well done. The family that owns the campground is very friendly and peaceful. It is close to shopping, restaurants and fishing. Yes we will return again.
The roads are dirt that makes dust whenever they are not mud from rain. The previous reviews have the rest of the park described well. However some surprise news hit me. After having to wake up the snoring office clerk, he proceeded to speak to me like I was an idiot for asking about the advertised monthly rate. He very curtly told me that they have so much business that they do not need do monthly rentals now. After my polite departure, it was interesting that there were over twenty empty sites just in the front part of the campground.
Most of the sites are sand or grass. Bring your own leveling blocks. Be prepared for lots of grass burrs. The park appears to be in a state of deferred maintenance since last year. Area is in a rundown part of Rockport.
Excellent for the two weeks I spent there. Two minutes from I-10 to your site. Some shade. Large pull-throughs. Highly recommend. Not a destination resort, but first class place to stay to visit the area.
Dirt and loose rock roads that become mud/muck when it rained a little. Not allowed to rinse the mud off with campground water. The mowing pelted the truck and trailer with rocks. Good concrete pad for the trailer to sit on. Truck parked in the mud. The wonderful sound of large industrial diesels all day and night. Very easy to find. Tight roads for getting into/ out of site. Good space between sites. Overall experience undesirable but safe.
5 for the cmpground/ 1 for the area. Very clean campground. Rates advertised are lower than are charged. That doesn't seem right. Campground is quiet, but the area is far from quiet. Every night either the fragrant cattle pens two blocks away are loudly doing something "cattle" or the VFW next door is broadcasting loud music until after midnight. The main street is close and has lots of loud vehicles. Owners are nice. Prefer to stay somewhere else next time.
Saying the host is disinterested is a major improvement from the reality. His dog was one of the problems. A camper in a ragged trailer, and ragged vehicles kept two dogs tethered out near the street. They barked at every little thing that happened. The ranger was not interested in quieting the dog problem either. The park is well kept physically and in the middle of a huge amount of things to keep you busy. Carlsbad is in the middle of a major construction boom so traffic is tough in town
I did not camp here. When checking for a longer term stay today, I had trouble getting straight information. The brochure stated a starting monthly rate of $220. Then below that was W/electricity $365, the below that she added summer $390. Then under her breath mumbled about having to sign up with the electricity company for something. As I listened to her take a call, I found out that they expect you to maintain the grass and or shrubs at your sit. She was thinking they were doing me a favor to furnish the mower and gasoline. I use Roundup to control grass. She also made it known that children are not really welcome beyond a day visit. This situation made me wonder what other things she was not being upfront about. I will not stay here with that sucker me attitude.
Very clean. Very friendly. Very easy in and out. Very over priced since it is so far away from major attractions. All gravel or grass. In the rest of Texas a park with this remote a location would charge 20-22 a night at most.
Utilities worked just fine. Nan in the store is fantastic. Needs tv and internet to be more than a stopover place. Location is right at the entrance to Black Gap and 8 miles from Big Bend. Beats staying in the Bend campgrounds of RGV or Cottonwood with no utilities for $14. It is a very adequate stopover place with very friendly folks.
New managers are working had to bring this place up to minimum standards. WiFi worked fine. Cable television was "snowy". Site was reasonably level, but just grass and gravel. Facilities were very clean. When these managers get some time put in, this will be a great place. Right now it leaves some to be desired, but is better than most in the area.
Extremely nice owner/operators. Roads packed gravel. Sites grass or sand/grass mix. Clubhouse, pool table house and boat parking while here. Sites are just wide enough and long enough. Really big rigs will have to have certain spots to fit well. Brian, Rhonda, and Mary are the most helpful owners I have ever met. Usual potlucks etc. The Rockport area is very nice and a fisherman or beach persons dream. Monthly rate $185 plus elec. Definitely would come here when in Rockport area.
Old ,worn ,out of date with terrible layout of campsites. Adequate but definitely not for longer stays. Seems good for weekender family camping if you like to have folks very close by. Staff was very nice.
My Sprint Aircard had excellent reception here. The park was well maintained and very clean of litter. The rail yard does have some low volume noise during the day but none during the night when I was here. The grassy areas were huge and the water access was excellent. A wonderful set up for kids outdoors. I am a single man who really appreciates a campground that provides room for kids to have loud fun without being right next to your unit. This is my first time here and will be the location I will stay on future visits to my sister's family in Garland.
Very adequate campground. Odd that they charge $5 extra if you use their restrooms or bath facilities. Laundry was excellent. Owners were really pleasant and helpful in things to see in the area. WiFi was silly slow. Over all very clean and tidy.
