One of our new favorites, just an hour north of Austin. The oaks are huge and shady. Half of the park is currently being renovated with entirely new sites--new covered picnic tables, fire pits, grills, and pads. The restrooms were spotless, the showers huge. Be sure to hike Miller Springs across the highway. The Dead Fish Restaurant across the dam has good food at reasonable prices. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice shady sites with some views of the lake, but we did not know the park is under construction, and those closer to the lake are being redone right now (will be super nice when done). Friendly attendant was having trouble with the computer system, and it took ages to get checked in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our first trip to this campground, and we'll definitely be back. It's an hour north of Austin on Lake Belton. Most of the sites are heavily shaded from the live oaks that the park is named after. The park is small, and features a boat ramp down to the lake. While Wi-Fi is available, it's only near the park entrance. We ended up using our Verizon mobile hot spot which had a very strong signal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a fabulous find in the middle of Texas with friendly check-in couple at the entrance booth. Campsites nicely spaced with lots of room in between them, clean restrooms, paved slabs, electric and water, and a new dump station. If coming this way again, we would definitely stay here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I am writing this review because of reading the previous comment about the so called 'rude' hosts here at Live Oak. We are currently camped at Live Oak, and have been here for 6 days. We have met all of the hosts tending the front gate, and ALL of them have been most helpful, polite, and friendly. Because of the previous review I approached them expecting a possible unpleasant conversation, but found them to be nice! A beautiful campground, with great views! Our rate is based on the Golden Age discount. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were in the first loop nearest the entrance. The road was quite narrow and heavily treed. The loop was recommended by one pair of campground hosts, who were most helpful. They charge $1.00 for WiFi but most campers must bring their laptops to a building near the gate. The other campground host, a woman, was nothing short of rude. I will not go into the gory details but she has been written about before at the adjacent Cedar Ridge COE park. Beware! The park headquarters people are very nice and will reset the WiFi as needed. Narrow road, trees interfering with satellite signal, and rude host did not endear the park to us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay at this park a lot and I agree with all of the reviews. The park hosts are great. We are even able to have mail sent to the park and they even brought it to our site. The only complaint I have is there should be more 50 amp sites and the sites should be more level. It does get crowded on the weekends during the summer but the week days make up for it. It is a great park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second stay in the park and we always enjoy our visit. Most of the spaces are very long and roomy. The sites in the lower loop are not very level but can be overcome with some shoring. We were Site 14 with 30 amp service. Had to use a 30 amp extension cord for electric hookup. A lot of folks were parking on the grass and on the roads which seems to be allowed by the hosts. Also, they allow you to dump your grey water tanks on the ground. We'll be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our first time in this beautiful shady park on nice lake. Site was tight to get in but fairly level. Enjoyed wildlife and view of lake in distance. We will return often, as park is close to home. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is located on Lake Belton and is convenient to both Belton and Temple. It is quiet with most sites being shaded; however, there are a few sites that are open and they could get warm during the summer. The park is usually full on weekends, so make reservations in advance especially in the summer. The asphalt roads could stand some maintenance but overall not bad. The sites are well spaced with picnic tables, fire rings and charcoal grills at each site. The camp hosts were very helpful and friendly. Wal-Mart Supercenter which has diesel is only a several miles away and there are places to shop and eat nearby in Belton and Temple. The park has a boat launch, a laundry room and a group shelter that is air conditioned. We have stayed in this park several times and love it and will definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park on Lake Belton. Not many activities other that lake access and a playground for the kids but normally a very quiet place with plenty of room on each site. The lake is beautiful and some sites overlook it. Will definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice quiet campground and the lower rating is only because it lacks some amenities as is typical with COE parks. The park is right on Belton Lake, but the sites aren't really waterfront because they sit on a bluff overlooking the lake. There is a boat ramp for lake access, and there are nice views of the lake from some spaces. You can get 3-4 local TV channels. Some sites have huge oak trees and are completely shaded while others are open. We only looked in one bath house, and it was just OK. The shower was huge, but since it is partially open to the outdoors there were leaves and some bugs inside. We prefered to use our on board facilities. We have stayed here before and would do so again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
