This is the umpteenth time we've stayed at River Ranch and again I'm impressed. River Ranch is by far the cleanest private RV park I've ever stayed it. Sure there is highway noise, but I'd rather hear the constant "thump thump" of cars than a train or loud partiers. It's almost inaudible over my AC. You just can't beat the location of RRV. It's on the Guadalupe River. We've floated home several times from the Comal. Plus it's about 1mile (walking distance or a $10 cab ride) from downtown New Braunfels. If you're looking for a place to have a beer party, you won't like it here. If you want a clean park for your family to use as a home base for anything in New Braunfels, you'll love it.
Great location if you're visiting Jackson or the Southern/Central parts of GTNP. Probably the most secluded of all the campgrounds in GTNP. It appeared as if there are limited sites that can accommodate rigs over 25'.
I believe all the sites are pull through and spacious. The park has a great swimming beach. Electric only, but you can't beat the price for Loveland. Not far off the beaten path, very easy to get to in any rig. We'll stay here again.
A white knuckle challenge to get to! DO NOT let your GPS send you down CO RD 23!!! The park has full, elec/water, & elec only sites. Most are pull through. Very pretty. We'll stay here again. Some may find the separate $7/day vehicle pass excessive, but you still can't find a cheaper park in Ft. Collins.
We will try and stay here every time we come to Estes! You absolutely can not beat the price. The park is clean, has a FANTASTIC view, and a pool! It is approximately a 5 minute drive from downtown, but the free Estes Park shuttle stops right in front of the park if you don't want to drive.
This is the perfect overnight park if you're on your way to Glacier. Each site has 30amp service. There is water available but not at each site, and no dump station. It is in a small but very nice county park. The only complaint I have is that there is no way to pay if you come in late and leave early. The sign says an attendant will come by to collect the fee, but I suspect we arrived after they made the rounds. There's no drop box, phone number, or mailing address to send it to.
If you stay here it is for the location ONLY! The sites are level and the hookups are new, but you will be packed in. I could watch and hear my neighbors TV from inside my trailer. This is the only campground in Yellowstone with full hookups and in a perfect location. It is not however like any other NPS campground. There is no room at your site to sit outside and as crowded as it is I can't see why you'd want to. Suitable as a base camp if you can't live without hookups, definitely not a destination.
This park is adequate but very expensive. It is the only park I have ever encountered with 20amp service. My only complaint is the price. $70/night is the most I've ever paid for an RV site anywhere. I understand they are in an excellent location and we were here during a busy time, but for a premium price you should receive premium service. I have paid less and had a guide to your site, 30/50amp hookups, functioning laundry facilities, and helpful staff. I would not stay here again simply because of the price.
Another great TX state park. Most sites are level and with lake views. There is a great park store and lots of awesome trails. The rock formations in this park make it worthwhile. We will certainly make another trip here.
Shhhhhh! Don't tell anyone about this park! $20 a night for full hookups with cable. Most sites are paved, level, and some pull through. The pool is $1/per person/per day but it is Olympic sized and with an 11ft diving section. The sites are super far apart by RV park standards and lots of shady pecan trees. There is a nice new play ground right in the park. The only con is that on some of the back 2 back sites you may have to run your electric and water under your trailer, but there is sewer on BOTH sides. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching small planes take off at the airport. We will absolutely stay here again and again.
We chose RRV simply because they were the only park in New Braunfels that had any vacancy for our weekend and allowed pets, plus they still have reasonable prices. Nightly prices are from $30 for a “standard” site to $45 for a “deluxe river view”. The park also has weekly rates. All rates are for 2 persons, up to 2 pets, and 1 veh. All sites are concrete with 20/30/50 amp, water, sewer, cable and WIFI included. I hear the park was obliterated by the floods of 2004 so everything is very new. The staff also indicated that they just opened in Oct (2007). Be prepared that the Guadalupe CAN flood like any river. This park is right on the river. When you check in you will have to sign a waiver allowing them to move your rig if you’re not there and a flood is coming. River Ranch is located along the Guadalupe River underneath Interstate 35 and Hwy 81 bridges. All sites are concrete although we found ours was a little off level side to side. My wife didn’t have a problem with it but I’m a bit obsessive with level. Bring your blocks or levelers. There are only about 6 pull through sites. All have a picnic table and bit of grass. The park has a boat ramp, restrooms and laundry facilities and a boat ramp. What I liked: The staff are friendly and helpful. They guide you to, and assist with backing in to your site. I had some problems getting on the WIFI and even though the office was closed the gentleman who answered came by to help. The river access is awesome even if you are not in a river front sight. You could theoretically tube down the Comal or Guadalupe right to the park, but I doubt many do! I also liked that there are “work-campers” who live in the park are accessible and patrol the park to make sure everything is OK. What I didn’t like: The biggest drawback to this park is the highway noise from I-35. Our trailer has tent ends and it didn’t bother us too much but if you’re looking for that “camping” feel you won’t get it at RRV. RRV also borders a city park & public boat ramp. There is a short fence partially separating RRV from this park. I gather that RRV tried to put up a “flood friendly” fence, but I really didn’t feel very secure and would have appreciated a taller fence that went all the way up to the road. Overall: RRV is a nice friendly new park with great great river access. We spent a lot of time swimming and tubing in the river right next to our trailer. Their prices and location are great! However the park is under the highway and next to a city boat ramp. If you are looking for a “destination” RRV is not for you. If you are looking for a great place to put your RV while in New Braunfels this is a decent place to stop.
