This was our first visit to this very nice park. There was plenty of room on each site and not very wooded even though there was numerous trees. Campground folks were very nice and accommodating. We will definitely be back, but reservations are necessary and are getting hard to get since the weather is getting nice.

This is a very nice, very shaded park but only 20 sites so reservations are necessary. Some of the sites are not very level so choose wisely. There are trails that go down to the lake and 50a and waterfront sites (not really on the water) must be asked for but the rate is the same. I was told that the fishing is very good on this lake due to it being a power plant lake and the water is warm. On the 2nd weekend of the month it is market days in Fayetteville. There is free bluegrass music in the gazebo late in the afternoon in the town square. La Grange is very close and has a state historical site that is worth visiting. We will definitely go back soon.

We overnighted at this campground and I think that is all it is good for, it appears that most of the residents are long term and sites look like it. I will say that the people are friendly and helpful and the sites, which are gravel are very level and we did not have to unhook to be able to overnight. This park was hard to get to and they need some more signs to point the way because the freeway is very confusing in the area. I would overnight there again but no more than that.

This is a very nice KOA park, they have primarily gravel sites but are very level for the most part. It is very convenient for the Charlotte area and has a lot of amenities for the kids with a large pool and a jumping pillow. Most all of the sites have large shade trees which helps a lot. I believe that they really pack the campers in and they have NO pull through sites on race weekends so make sure before you go.

This park is gravel sites, plenty of room to spread out and they have a very nice small lake that can be used for fishing, canoeing or kayak use...no swimming because of the presence of alligators. The sites are fairly level but it was necessary to shim up some. It is a very good park to stay in while visiting the Charleston area

I will echo what everyone else has posted. It is a very nice campground but the spaces ARE close together. If you want to go be sure to get reservations because they were full all the nights that we were there. The beach is great and the amenities are nice.

This was our third time to go to Matagorda and now the park is finished but not complete. I was told that Wi-Fi would be coming soon and they are still getting the nature area set up (but it is open, sometimes) no regular hours yet. The park is getting better all the time, the mosquitoes were not bad at the time we were there and I was told that the fishing was great on Friday but it went downhill on Sat. when the cold front blew in. A great time was had anyway.

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.

Not bad for a KOA, sites are very tight which is typical but the owners were good folks and took very good care of the park. I had an extra vehicle and a boat which they allowed a place to park without extra charge. The park is right on the freeway and is not real quiet but is a good spot when seeing the sites around town. We will use it again when we cannot get a spot on the lake but it won't be my first choice.

Have been to this park numerous times and always enjoyed it. Good state park and the folks try to take very good care of it. Lots of available activities including a 2 mile hike/bike trail and a lake with swimming area, canoeing/kayaking (which are rentable) and play areas. This was a well kept secret that has gotten out so reservations are usually needed. We will be back (again) soon.

Very nice park, sites are close and good for a multiple camping group. Park is closed from November 30th until March 1st. There are 39 full hookups and many more with water/ electricity and more still for tenting, some are right on the water. There is a small store for essentials and the people are very friendly. This is definitely a family oriented park and we will be back soon.

This park was still under construction at the time we were there, rest rooms/showers and nature center were not finished but sites are very nice and completed. Great fishing both on the river and on the gulf pier, both are free. The grounds are well kept but the mosquitoes were real bad at times, make sure to take repellent and/or something to treat the grounds, the campground tries hard to treat them but it is a losing battle. Will definitely go back for the fishing.
