This park is on the quiet side of the Frio river across from Garner State Park. The sites are mostly level and the grounds are well maintained. We found the staff to be friendly and very helpful. The camp store is well stocked and reasonably priced for a camp store. The river is very wide and slow moving in this area, great for just laying in the tube. There are only two river access points one metal stairs the other a improved road/trail. It would be nice if there were one more access point up closer to the front of the park. The per night fee seemed a bit high given the amenities but not way out of line with others in the area. Verizon cell service is not available but AT&T is available. The park has a good Wi-Fi system but charges $2 per day for service. In my opinion this is the nicest privately owned park on the Frio. We stayed almost a week and enjoyed our stay, we will most assuredly be back.

This is a clean, quiet, very well kept, basic RV Park. The pull through sites are long, level and paved. Not much in the way of shade. We spent 1 night on both the front and back side of a 10 day trip. There were a number of full timers but seemed to have plenty of space available for transients like us. Not a destination park in my opinion, but excellent for a one or two night stopover on your way to your ultimate destination.

Price reflects premium sites with bricked patio, wrought iron table and chairs and wrought iron sitting area around outdoor fire place. Easy entrance and exit off of main road in Branson even for large rigs. We stayed here just 2 weeks after the tornado swept through parts of downtown Branson. The park had no visible damage other than a pile of branches to be hauled off. Wide level sites. Verizon cell coverage good. Lots of trees but they do not interfere with satellite reception. The location is excellent for visiting all the attractions Branson has to offer. Staff was very friendly and eager to make your stay with them enjoyable. We would definitely return.

Easy access to Hot Springs attractions. Lots of amenities onsite, including pool, covered group meeting areas, boat docks and boat rentals exercise room. Easy access for large rigs, level sites. Good Verizon cell coverage. Not a lot of trees to interfere with satellite service. We loved this campground. We would love to return.

Small RV Park built behind the Bennett's RV Sales and Service. They have a well stocked camp store, and will perform service within the park. The park drives are asphalt with gravel sites all fairly level. This park only has 50 amp service. The sites are fairly tight for maneuvering big rigs and they have added boulders on some site corners which make it a little extra challenging. The park offers good shade and is very well maintained. Verizon cell service and AT&T both worked well. The park had a number of full timer's or winter Texans. The playground, laundry, shower and meeting hall, all were very clean and in good working order. However, they are not located in the park, but behind the service facility, making it a hike from the front of the park. Although a nice facility, for us it seemed over priced for the available amenities. We would likely try another park next time we are in the area.

Very friendly staff. The park is heavily shaded with lots of trees. The bad news is the trees make satellite reception and maneuvering a big rig in the park a challenge. The campground has a small pool (mostly shaded), a boat launch, dock meeting hall and restaurant. The sights are mostly level dirt (which could be a problem in the rain) with gravel access roads. Verizon cell service worked well, however AT&T was a bit spotty. All around a nice peaceful area and we would return if in the Crockett area.

The facilities, boat ramps, restaurant/bar, boat slips, beach swimming area, and pool are the positives for this park. The negatives are very tight RV spaces that are not friendly to motorhomes in excess of 35 feet. The pads themselves are fairly level, but most of the sites have sloped grass camp areas making them less than useful (items roll off the picnic table). Despite other posters dismissing the ants, they are definitely a problem, so bring ant spray, and spray your water hose and power cord, this will REDUCE, but not eliminate, the problem. The very best sites in the park are 70 thru 74A. They have concrete pad and picnic area over looking the water and go for about the same rate as the sloped grass sites from which you have to walk a half mile down to the water. We would not likely stay here again unless we were in those sites.

Very well kept and quiet; clientele seemed older, not many children at the pool even on a weekend. Very convenient to downtown. Sites were level, some with shade but very few. Has a camp store, with exercise facility and game room. The park has some full time residents, but not many. We would definitely return next time in San Antonio. FYI do not try to approach this park from Southcross Blvd you will likely "high center" a motorhome on the railroad crossing.

The current drought now going on four years in southwest Texas has not been kind to this park. If you look at the park's web site you can see the many amenities and activities the were available, unfortunately most are now not offered or in a state of disrepair. The main attraction the Nueces river is way down, in fact you have to walk another 30 yards from the dry boat dock to get to the river. We stayed two nights in 110 degree heat with intermittent blowing dust over the dead parched prairie that at one time I think was green grass, at least according to the pictures on the website. The park is mostly 30 amp service but does have about a dozen 50 amp pull throughs. There were very few RVs in the park when we were there, so the park makes up for lost revenue by offering "day use" which makes the remaining river very crowded. We will not return until the drought has been broken for a couple of years. I hope they can survive that long.

The park is very small, only 28 sites. Most are back in, fairly level but none paved. The few pull throughs (3 or 4) that are available are that in name only. Because of it size this is not friendly to big motorhomes and requires a lot 3 and 4 point turns to manage your way back out. If you are pulling another vehicle, forget about it. The owner is usually on site and is very friendly and helpful. It is quiet, but a long walk down to the river. We found the park "ok" but overpriced for what was offered. We would not likely stay here again.

I did not see this in any previous reviews therefore it might be a recent change. This park is now part of the Coast to Coast RV Resorts. Which is basically a time share for RVs. To become a member of a "home park" like this one costs between $3000 to $6000, depending on the park; plus a $200 to $600 annual fee, again depending on the park; plus $79.95 for "classic", or $149.95 for "deluxe", or $189.95 for "gold" membership per year to Coast to Coast. Membership entitles you to stay at your home or other member parks at discount, which in my opinion, given the max length of stay requirements (7 days) the upfront fees and annual fees, you will likely not live long enough to break even. Nowhere is any of this mentioned on the parks website. They do allow non-members to stay at the published rate but you are required to hear the 60 to 90 minute "pitch" as to the benefits of membership.

Conveniently located to local eateries, and stores. Many activities available, besides the lake; splash pad, pool, beach area. Overall this could be an outstanding park if they had a few boat slips to park your boat while at the park. Otherwise you either trailer it again or anchor it in the cove. The sites are not all level and we saw a number of "wheels up" around the park.

This is now operated by the historic Texas State Railroad. They are making improvements as they go. Not all sites are full hook up only (1-32). No assigned sites, this is a first come, first serve and the office closes at 5 p.m. The sites are mostly level asphalt but very narrow, with small pull through loops on either side of the road for 32 sites, Very large rigs may have difficulty. Some of the sites sit very close to the highway so noise is a problem. The main draw is the historic train rides to Palestine (about 1 1/2 hours each way)and/or the occasional theme rides during other times of the year. The tickets are pricey $124 for two adults and one child. The train trip was nice but not really a good value for the money. There is also a small splash pad for the kids, playground, and several open areas to play. If it weren't for the train, we would have rated the park just above average.

The sites are gravel/asphalt back ins, and most are level. Ours happened to have the front wheels off the ground to level, but others appeared to be more level than our site. The campsites are very secluded with trees all around and difficult to see your neighbors. Each site had picnic tables on a concrete slab, lantern stand, fire ring and a fairly level tent site as well. You need to bring another vehicle to haul your tubes and rafts down to the river launching area. The river picnic area fills up quickly on the weekends so get here early. During the week it's not very crowded. It takes about 40 minutes float time to leave the park, then 20 minutes to hike back and do it again. The park is also conveniently located to Fiesta Texas (about 20 minutes), Sea World (about 30 minutes), the Outlet Mall in San Marcos (about 35 minutes), and Cabela's (about 45 minutes). We hit all of them in the 6 days we were here. The main draw back to this park is the lack of individual dump facilities and 50 amp at the site, particularly for extended stays. The restroom and shower facilities were old but well maintained. We enjoyed the stay and will come back.

To call this park a resort may be a bit much, but it will be one of the nicest RV Parks you have stayed in. The facilities are great. Mostly level concrete sites with picnic tables. The premium sites surround the pool and activities area and have patio tables with umbrellas chairs and a gas grill. In addition to the pool and a very hot, hot tub, amenities include a game room with pool table, ping pong and foosball, and several meeting rooms with kitchen facilities. Outside are shuffleboard, horseshoe pit, an outdoor pavilion, and a fishing pond. The Office/Store is well stocked with pool and RV type items. Weekend/Holiday included a DJ and supervised games and activities pool side. Many on this site have commented on the restroom and laundry facilities, and they are first rate. Unless you are staying in one of the premium sites (umbrellas) you will need to bring your own shade. Resort? maybe not, but as RV Parks go, it is pretty darn close.

This park offers a number of hiking and bicycling trails, not to mention canoe, paddle boat or fishing on or around the lake. The designated swim area is in the day use area on the other side of lake from our site. Very wooded, makes for a sense of privacy between sites but also limits satellite reception. Sites were spacious with tables fire rings lantern poles and some with full RV hookups. The nearest restroom/shower facility to our site was out of order making the next closest a bit of a hike. Perhaps it was just the time of year, but the flies were terrible, with literally hundreds attacking anything edible placed on a table outside. We actually filled a fly trap jar (used for stables) over the weekend we were there. Next time we will bring the canopy with bug screens.

Obviously this park is designed to provide traffic to the casino and restuarants, and they do that very well. Be sure to get the shuttle bus phone number at check in, and you will be picked up at your site when you are ready. There are lots of things for kids to do in addition to the pool and play area, the casino has "Kids Quest" with movies, games and supervised activities and are open late. The park is clean and well maintained, with mostly level concrete sites with tables and full hook-ups. If you plan to spend much time at the RV during the day though bring your own shade because there isn't any.

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing stay, this park is not for you. This park is weekend party central. The amenities are great, clean restrooms and shower facilities; two pools one with a swim up bar. DJ and planned activities on Saturdays, you will have a good time along with hundred's of your new "closest friends". This is a large park and it has not reached it's capacity in available sites (new section under construction) but it has reached it's capacity in facilities, as everything was very crowded. Plan on renting or bringing a golf cart to get to the pool and activity center. There is a great Cajun restaurant nearby (by golf cart) or they will deliver to your site. As I said come here for the party, not tranquility.

Park has beautiful lake view sunsets. Price reflects 4 people, a premium site on Memorial Day weekend. Not cheap. The premium sites allow walking access to all of the camp facilities including the lake. Otherwise, plan on renting a golf cart or riding a bike (you may want to anyway because of the hills), because you will be a long way away. Has a nice pool area with slides and splash pads. Snack bar, crafts, movies, fishing docks, and other activities make this a great camp for the children. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only negative, if you can call it that, was the miniature golf course. It was in serious disrepair: balls got stuck in the tubes, the concrete borders were broken, and the carpet turf was coming up on some of the holes. The kids didn't seem to mind, but for a major holiday weekend you would expect it to be repaired. Overall, a great camp experience for everyone and we will be back.

Friendly staff and well patrolled by both gate attendants and Park Rangers. All sites were fairly level asphalt, with a covered picnic table, fire ring, BBQ, and food prep table. Some sites offered a glimpse of the lake. There is a small playground available (short walk) from campsites. Lake access requires additional driving to ramps. There is a nearby parking lot to store trailer and or boat between use. Dump facilities available as you exit campground. Overall, family friendly, quiet environment. Not a lot of trees so would be hot in summer. We will return.

Not a bargain park by any means with a camp charge plus a dayuse charge per person. Most (but not all) of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The Camp store had a little of everything. Has miniature golf, electric carts, and bicycle rentals, outdoor movies, fishing pond and a cafe provided a broad range of activities. However, the biggest attraction is the pool and water slides, which were well attended by the campers but still easy to find open lounge chairs for a base camp. The lines for the slides were not long and made their use most enjoyable. There were only a few motorhomes in our section with several empty rows of drive through slots. Pads were gravel and fairly level. Each site had a picnic table. However, the Pond side of the park was wall to wall tent and cabin campers. I would not want to stay in this park on a holiday weekend when, according to staff, it is usually full. This is a great place for children 11 and under, particular if they have actually seen a Yogi Bear cartoon. We would, and will stay here again but we will certainly avoid Holiday weekends.

Located behind a convenience store which doubles as the check-in point, this RV park is just a few notches above "boondocking" in a Wal-mart parking lot. The pros are electric, water and dump. The cons are uneven grass site, dirty restroom and shower facilities and no picnic tables. If you need an overnight stay with electric and dump, this will suffice, otherwise your better off at Wal-mart.

This is not the place to camp in inclement weather or arrive after sundown. We did both. The mud was awful almost got stuck twice. Finding the assigned site in the dark would have been impossible without following the caretaker who was on an ATV. None of the sites seem level and auto levelers in the mud seemed pointless. The daylight revealed 3" mud ruts behind the tires of the motorhome. The pool was dark green almost as though they were going to turn it into a cement pond. A friendly staff can not make up for a poorly maintained facility.

Staff was friendly and helpful. This park is showing its age, and some deferred maintenance is evident. Most campsites are narrow and have no picnic tables. The streets are narrow and difficult to maneuver in a large motorhome. This is not the park for overnight or short term stays. This park has a very very high percentage of "snow birds" most from Canada. There is little or nothing available for children, this is for the over 55 crowd.

This is a great overnight campground. The facilities are new and clean almost to the point of being "sterile". All campsites surround a 2 acre stocked pond, and are all level concrete. In my opinion, this is not a destination campground, but a clean and secure waypoint on your travels. I would highly recommend for overnight stays.

Owner's and staff were very friendly and went above and beyond to make you feel welcome. If you like trains, this is the place for you. We were here for the Easter Bunny train ride. It was great fun for our 5 year old and very well done, with a train ride out to visit Bugs Bunny and return. Indoor heated pool and two play grounds kept him busy. For the adults, there is a weekly bluegrass concert (in season, I think October through the end of March). The lake, about 3 acres in size was still a bit cold for our use, but looks like great summer fun. We will definitely return the next trip through southern Alabama.
