This park was protected from the wildfires of last summer. It is like a COE park with roomy sites and space between them except for a few double sites that would be good for families/friends camping together, but it is like a TX state park in that you cannot reserve a particular site. It appeared that you can go and pay for your site and choose one & a cone would be placed to mark it as already taken. We arrived around 3:30 on Good Friday with a reservation and had about 6 sites left to choose from. We chose #1 as it was a nice site with a parking area right behind it and our kids were coming to stay with us and they were able to have their vehicle close to our site. The water front sites are more "water accessible" than being able to see the water. Our granddaughter caught her first fish here and there were several boats on the lake. The rate shown is for a non waterfront site and does not include the daily registration fee per person over 12 of $4.00. They do have discount fee books you can purchase of 10 $4.00 fees for $30, so that saved us $10. Also there is a $5.00 non refundable reservation fee. The one negative that we found is when coming from Bastrop on Hwy 21, the turn for park road is at a dangerous place as your view is partially blocked by trees and the oncoming traffic really flies so you just have to be patient to turn pulling a big rig across this busy road. I feel we will return to this park.
This is a very busy park and due to all the rain in the area this spring was really grown up. I guess they hadn't had a chance to mow and/or weedeat the sites yet. There were nice hiking/biking trails. We saw some deer. The staff were very helpful and professional. We had reserved a 30 amp site, but could have gotten a 50 amp when we arrived, but since we really didn't need the 50 amp service this time of year still went with a 30 amp site. This price is site cost only as we have the Texas Park Pass which covers the daily entrance fee of and additional $5.00 per person/day. We had to pay $5.00/day for an additional vehicle fee and had to park at the restroom area. This park extremely strict about vehicle being on pavement. It is a nice park and is a good meeting point for us and daughter's family so probably will camp here again.
Most site are pull thru and are varying shapes & lengths. Some are pretty close together. Staff was very helpful in choosing our site due to length of our RV and the weather. The first time we stopped was on a Monday of Spring Break, and then we returned on Sat. eve. On Sat. the wind was really blowing and she chose a sight that would be best for the direction of the wind. Dump station has 2 dump connections. Only had a swing set for playground area. Nice park. I'm not sure if we'd make it a destination park, but was very nice for a stopover.
