Great place to park overnight as we did when traveling from Georgia to New Orleans. The owner lives on-site and is a sweet man. If the office is closed, you have to go to his camper and drop off your payment. The park is located a short ways off the highway down a dirt road, and there is lots of red clay in the area. Your rig will get dirty! This is not the park's fault, however. The sites seemed nice and large. One disappointment: this park is listed in the Happy Camper directory, but the half price discount was not honored. He claimed he wasn't a part of Happy Camper.

During the summer, the park isn't very full, so even though the non-premium sites are close together, there isn't a great likelihood of having neighbors on both sides. We did have one neighbor while we were here, and the sites were so close that I had to stand on their patio in order to dump my holding tanks! Our living room slide was mere inches from the utility pole, too. There are dirt roads throughout the park which were being graded during our stay, and the whole park was dusty, dusty, dusty. Our truck and rig got so dirty that when we left we had to take advantage of the nearby truck wash. Even the inside of the rig got dusty! There aren't many shaded sites, and they seem to be taken by long-term residents. The park staff are very polite and helpful, the laundromat was air-conditioned and clean, the pool and hot tub are really nice and located on a deck that overlooks the little pond in the park. Public restrooms were clean, big and handicap accessible. My dogs really enjoyed the pet park. The Wi-Fi here was pretty slow, though. Lots of trashcans located throughout the park for dumping garbage, and they are emptied at least once a day. They serve meals Friday nights and weekend mornings, but we never took advantage of this. Park is located about twelve miles south of San Antonio, so expect to drive a bit to go in to see the sights. Price reflects CCUSA discount. The nice part is that the discount is unlimited, so stay as long as you want for half price!

Price reflects CCUSA discount which is valid for up to seven nights of camping. We came for a night and stayed all week long! The owners are just about the nicest folks you'll meet anywhere. They live on site with their children, so it's very important to them to maintain a safe, welcoming community. They are working hard to renovate the park and rebuild its reputation, and they are succeeding. The park itself is quite small, and some of the campers are long-term residents, but it is clean and well maintained (the tree trimmers came out while we were there). The park is located 11 miles from the nearest town, so be prepared to drive a bit for gas and groceries. This can be a plus, too, as the park is very quiet and the skies are nice and dark at night. There is also access to a nearby lake and docks thanks to the cooperation of a private property owner next door. There are even Texas longhorns in the pasture right next to the park! The laundromat is air conditioned and reasonably priced. The staff work very hard to make sure their campers are happy ones. During the week we stayed, They brought us peaches and fresh eggs! Did I mention the Wi-Fi? It kicks butt! This is one of the reasons for our extended stay. We've had some lame Internet connections on our journey this summer, so when we ran into a fast, stable network, we were thrilled! Note that the park is well outside 3G range, though, so you'll need to rely on their Wi-Fi unless you have satellite Internet. Do check out Goss' barbecue in nearby Belmont while you are here. Well worth the short drive.

Clean little state park just outside of Lockhart and convenient to San Marcos and Austin. Only has about 20 campsites total, so it's very quiet. The full hookup loop is adjacent to the golf course for those who like to play. It's important to note that while the park has pull-through sites, these ARE NOT full-hookup sites. The full-hookups are back ins as described by previous reviewers. We got a nice, shady little site on the Fairway View loop and stayed for a week. I enjoyed the beautiful, star-filled skies at night and viewing all the structures within the park built by the CCC in the 30s. While you are in town, be sure to have some BBQ. It's practically a local ordinance that you do! The downside: no Wi-Fi and the park is just outside of 3G range. If you rely on your Internet, be prepared to GO SLOW!

This is not a typical RV park. It was clearly a mobile home park that is slowly being converted to RV sites as the mobiles move out. As such, there are many permanent residents. The park appeared to be well cared for, and our pull-through site was shady and mostly level. We had a concrete patio and there was plenty of room between us and the neighbors. The only annoying thing about the whole experience were the neighborhood children who thought it was OK to walk through our site several times a day. Laundromat was functional but not air conditioned, staff at the office was very helpful, and we were guided into our site by one of the employees. Trash pick up only twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays; otherwise you toss it in the dumpster yourself. Pool is nice though frequently occupied by kiddoes. Very quiet community. Located very near Stone Mountain Park itself and only about twenty minutes or so from downtown Atlanta. Warning: water pressure here is very high. Don't forget your regulators!

Spent a week here and really loved it. The staff is so friendly and helpful. I broke my foot just before arriving here so had mobility issues. One of the staff members delivered ice to our camper and then delivered a wheelchair to me that I'd rented from a local service. When my fridge went out, the front office recommended a repairman who came out promptly and dealt with me fairly. The pool is sparkling, and you don't have to have a site right on the canal to have a view of the water. Laundromat is clean and in working order, and my two dogs loved the dog park. We haven't availed ourselves of the on-site pizza and wing delivery or the bar, but they seem to be pretty popular. Wi-Fi is pretty weak, and we were only about halfway through the park from the office. We didn't use the shuttle, either, but saw plenty of people who did. It's an appealing feature of the park for those who want to visit the French Quarter. We would definitely stay here again.

This is not an RV park. Instead, it is a mobile home park that happens to have three long-term RV sites nearby. Sites rent only on a monthly basis at $795/mo, including all utilities except cable and phone. You get a regular street address and USPS mailbox at the street. The sites are very bare bones, with gravel pads that are pretty level, picnic tables at two of the sites but no patios, full-hookups, and grass is mowed religiously by on-site caretaker who lives just two doors down and is a bit nosy. The sites sit right on Bull Neck Creek. This is a blessing and a curse. Great views of the water, fishing, and lots of waterfowl, but the area is prone to flooding, and the sites get boggy fast. We often find ourselves stepping out our door and into a puddle after a big rain. In the event of a tropical storm, hurricane, or unusually high tides you will have to evacuate. The driveway into the sites is not paved so gets rutty and muddy in snow and rain. If you aren't careful, your vehicle and rig can get stuck very easily. Septic tanks sometime back up, but maintained man will pump them for you. Electric, water, and cable supplies reliable. Very quiet park and neighborhood. We've been here nearly a year and have never seen a police car or ambulance in the area. We've also had no neighbors in the other two sites during that time. The mobile home park sits right between two county parks with fishing and boat ramps, so recreation is readily available. Property manager (who is located off site) is very friendly and helpful and will work to accommodate your needs. Pets are allowed ONLY on the RV sites, not in the mobile home park or in the stick-built homes nearby. Large, open field nearby where you can walk your pets. You are responsible for taking your garbage to the curb once a week and supplying your own garbage can. Raccoons and stray cats in the area, so you don't want to sit your trash out unprotected. Sites are about a block away from railroad tracks, and trains do come through in the wee hours. High tension power immediately adjacent to the sites. This said, these are the ONLY RV sites near Baltimore that allow pets, have full hookups, cable access, AND allow long-term residents. Lots of mobile home parks in the area do allow RVers, but most won't allow pets. If you plan to winter over in this park, know that you'll get to shovel the 100 feet or so to the street in the event of a blizzard (we had three this last winter). The county does plow the streets, and there is some car parking about a block up, so you can park your car or truck there in the event of snow. Carpenter ants are a problem here, and they will eat the wood in your RV, so be careful. We haven't yet found a good remedy for them except keeping the tree branches over our rig trimmed back. Mosquitoes are also fierce because of the nearby creek. I'd give the park a higher rating if the sites and driveway were paved, if the drainage were better, and if the monthly rate was a bit lower, but I suppose this is the cost of living right on a tributary of the Chesapeake and only 20 minutes from downtown Baltimore.

Enjoyed our three-night stay here. Park was quiet and clean. Trash pickup at our site every morning. Wifi was strong and cable TV excellent. The laundromat was kept clean and functional, and we had fun playing mini golf. My dogs loved the enclosed dog run. The game room, however, has seen better days. Pool table had no balls and air hockey no pucks, but other than that, no complaints. Friendly, helpful staff, and very central location.
