There are three different campgrounds in this recreation area. This military park is huge and it sits on the shoreline of an equally huge Corp of Engineer lake. Just about every water sport and boating activity is supported at this facility. It is super family friendly because kid's playground equipment is plentiful and there are other "sport fields" on site. Fee based horseback riding is available, natures trails are abundant, and one can bike the place until you are exhausted. It is "pet friendly" in that two of the three CGs are in the woods. The three campgrounds are BLORA RV Park, Deer RV Park, and Cedar RV Park. If you have a "big" rig, as I do, then I would suggest Deer Park because it has 50 amp service and half of the sites are FHU. However, if you choose it and absolutely need satellite reception, I would suggest getting a site that is on the left side in order to avoid a tree blocking issue. With the exception of the tent only sites, the pads of each park are concrete. Almost every site in this huge recreational facility as a covered picnic table, fire ring, and a charcoal BBQ grill. I would estimate that about a third of the sites in all three CGs have a minor front to back leveling issue for longer rigs. Cedar Park has a designated tent only area. Deer RV Park has tent sites mixed with RV sites. Although, they were nice, none of the bath/restroom facilities in each CG are conveniently located in the middle of the campgrounds. I consider the lack of close by trash cans and bath houses a negative. Both of those are what I consider a "hike" to get to. This facility honors the America The Beautiful card.

This is the second extended stay we have taken here. The long term sites are narrow and basic, pavement/gravel only and take some work leveling. The rate reflects the monthly amount for long term. The short term pull-thru sites are larger and have a grass, picnic tables, but not much shade like the long term. The shore power and hook-ups are all in good condition and the shower, bathroom and laundry are always in great shape. WiFi is available only in the reading room by the shower, with a range extender some spots might be able to pick it up. Would be a 10 except the dog walk area is only in the far corner of the pull-thru side and the WiFi is lacking. If you have pets expect to WALK the dog. The playgrounds are nice and grills are in good shape. Close to main post, PX, commissary as well as Copperas Cove which has everything you need restaurant and shopping wise. Closet full service RV shop is in Harker Heights 20 minutes east. $349 for back-in long term, $459 for pull-thru. The 60 day max stay can get extended indefinitely at the front desk. Will stay here again for a long term spot. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There are two sections of the campground. The sites in the older section are very close together with limited room between you and the neighbor. The newer section has 16 pull throughs with picnic tables on a concrete patio. There is plenty of elbow room in that section. Asphalt pads are the norm for both sections. Bath facilities are convenient for both sections, and there is a coin operated laundry. The cable is basic, but it is free. Satellite signal reception should not be a problem. Verizon 3G is strong. I was told that Wi-Fi is coming, but no date was given. There is a pet walk area, but a restriction on certain breeds is enforced. There is a convenience store within walking distance of the park. The campground is in the flight path of the airbase. You will have planes flying over head. Except for the security checkpoint procedure, this is a convenient campground if you’re going to be in the Killeen, Copperas Cove, or Ft Hood area. You must go through the commercial side of the Clarke Road gate for an inspection, and then you can go to the campground. If you don’t have a DoD decal on your tow or towed, you will not get back into the campground if you leave the base. The campground staff can brief you on procedures for getting a temporary visitor’s pass. We camped here in a Motorhome.
