Pro's- May be the most beautiful park in Texas with the deepest traditions. Cons- they allow multiple families in one campsite making it crowded and noisy in some instances. Overall.... Has to be one of the best parts in Texas it's not the best. If you're looking for real camping and not a "RV park"with Wi-Fi, cable, etc. Great hikes, and beautiful places to go to the river and enjoy all day. Very kid friendly. Downside is the park doesn't appear to stick to its site policies and there may be 15 people in one site making (what would be) nice semi-secluded campsites loud, noisy, and over-run bathrooms. One of our favorite spots is rock beach down near the dam, but there's great places to go all over this park. Don't miss the nightly dance! You won't find this anywhere else and that's like people come from campgrounds all around to go to.
This campground exceeded my expectations!! I was a little apprehensive about driving my 30ft trailer up River Road, but I came down from the horseshoe/canyon lake side and was an easy pull. The campground itself had a nice 'feel' to it, but more important it seemed very well run. The Guadalupe can sometimes be quite a party place, but the L&L requires wrist bands to even be in the campground. I saw patrols at night, guards a the gate and felt VERY secure there. after 10:00 at night there were not parties, loud music etc. I'll definitely return if possible. Only thing is, I don't think they allow pets, so you might want to check that out if staying there. (ed. note: Lazy L&L website states that no pets are allowed during the summer months).
I was very happy with the park. There were a few older 'live in ' trailers, but the spaces all had ample breathing room and also nice pull-thru's. Family friendly, and I would definitely return. It's not 'on the beach' but really close, and unless you plan on walking and carrying a bunch of stuff it's not that big a deal. It's about 10 miles down from the seawall.
We've been here twice, and it is enjoyable. If you are a tenter it can get really hot in the summer unless you camp down on the lake where you get a really nice breeze. Really good park if you want to bring horses.
My problem with this park was that it had very small campsites and hard angles on some of the roads with overgrowth (where big trailers have trouble navigating the turns). Our campsite we could barely get into, and even then it was so un-level that the bumpber was on the ground and the jackstand an unsafe height in the air. luckily, we were just passing through and stayed only one night. Camp rangers also were not friendly.
We visited this park last year twice and it was a lot of fun... Even better this year than last. They have made some really nice improvements and I would HIGHLY recommend this park to anyone with young kids. Maybe middle school and over kids would get a little bored? Maybe not, but if you have young kids it's ideal. Very safe and controlled environment, extremely clean restrooms and showers, well stocked gift shop that includes RV supplies & food. Especially if you are traveling from Houston this is an ideal weekend getaway.
