We made our first trip in our RV to Brackenridge Plantation near Edna. I was very pleased with the park. It is a very scenic park with lots of big trees. We saw a whole lot of wildlife during our 3 day stay including loads of birds, deer feeding right behind our RV, alligators, etc. There was plenty for the kids to do including several playgrounds, put put golf, Frisbee golf, hiking trails, fishing, etc. They have a paintball course that is really nice and are suppose to be putting in softball and soccer fields soon. They have a boat ramp and boat slips you can rent. Lake Texana isn't the prettiest lake because of water color but the cat fishing and crappie fishing can be very good. The campsites were nice with full hookups, gravel pads that were pretty level, fire rings and grills. The showers and restrooms were nice and clean and were air conditioned. This campground is very close to our home and we will be back. It is a nice place for a weekend getaway. It was very quiet and peaceful during our stay. I can't wait to go back for another quiet weekend on the lake.

We stayed at Pecan Park when we fled the coast for Hurricane Ike. When it looked like Ike was going to make landfall in our area we called the folks at Pecan Park and they told us to come on, we had a spot as long as we needed it. Upon arriving I was very pleased with their campground. It is on the river and in a hardwood riverbottom setting with many large trees that provided plenty of shade. We have two small children and also had several pets in tow. The folks at PP helped us find a kennel to board a dog and a cat and I kept one dog with us in the park. They have built a dog play area that is fenced where you can take your pet for a run. For the kids Pecan Park has a playground set up, an indoor pool and plenty of room for bike riding. We also walked down to the river and swam in the river, it was very nice but access is down a dirt trail. Not a hard walk but not easily accessible for some people. The river is really nice. The campsites were fine with full hookups, level gravel pads and concrete patios with picnic tables. We had free cable and wifi included. The location is great, 10 minutes from Cabela's, 10 minutes from a Camping World, 10 minutes from a large outlet mall and about 5 min from town. Far enough out that it is very quiet but close enough to run in and get anything you need. It is also a short jaunt to Austin, New Braunfels and San Antonio so there is lots to do close by. I recommend trying Pecan Park if you are in the area. The owners were friendly and helpful, the setting is quiet and there was something there for everyone including the kids and the dog. We will be back.
