This was our first time camping along the Guadelupe River. In this park, most of the sites are right on the river - terrific view! Most of the sites have shade and are level. The staff are friendly. For kids, there is not much to do at this park other than float in the river, however, Canyon Lake is close and San Antonio and some state parks are less than an hour away. There is also a camp store, which came in handy. The sites are not too close together, but most of the even numbered sites do not have the electric/water hook-ups on the right side. This means you need an extension cord for power and another hose - and you have these hoses/cords all over the campsite. Luckily, we were able to borrow one from the office, since we didn't have any. We stayed over Labor Day weekend, and there were a lot of families, but also people who really wanted to party (loud music until late). Guess this is to be expected on a holiday weekend. There are no full hook-ups and only one dump station, so make sure you leave early on the day you head out.
This campground has it all - friendly staff, plenty of activities for the kiddos, great transportation around the enormous campground plus ferry / buses to the all the Disney attractions. It poured our first day and no water pooled at our site - they have done a good job with drainage. Reason for an "8" instead of a "10" - the sites are super tight for maneuvering longer trailers. We have a 35' and for a short time we literally thought we would not be able to get the trailer in the spot. The location was long enough, but with the narrow road combined with the recycling stations and posts, there was very little room to back up without hitting something. We stayed in loop 300. If I were to reserve here again (which we most certainly will) I will ask if some of the others loops have a bit more space. It seemed that loop 400 might have been better for our trailer. Also the food in the dinner buffet was mediocre and the service was slow (come on - all you have to do in clear the plates) and it was $$$ with a 18% gratituity added on top. Otherwise a top notch campground, we loved our time here.
We stayed here for one night with 3 small children - wish it could have been for longer! This is a beautiful park that is well maintained. The host was super friendly, even offered to help us back into the site. We stayed in site 25, perfect length (we didn't need to disconnect our 35' trailer) with lots of privacy. Playground was great for my 3 and 5 year olds. Wish we could have explored the trails and beaches, but we didn't have time. Definitely a good value - just need to make sure you reserve early for this gem of a park.
We stayed here for one night with 3 small children. Park is clean and tidy, staff was friendly - we were shown to our site. Playground has old equipment, but well maintained in working order. Quiet, about half of the sites were unoccupied. Several sites have abundant shade, our site had none. Main reason for the low rating: (1) site was horribly unlevel, which I find unacceptable for the given price range and (2) there were gnats everywhere, it was unbearable to be outside for more than a few minutes. Wish we could have had a better experience.
We stayed at this park over the 4th of July weekend, every spot was full. Pros: location close to the beach, well lit inside the park, family friendly. Cons: located near a water treatment plant, funny smell from time to time as a result. Our site did not have any relief from the sun from 5pm until sun set. Other "premium" sites looked like they had much more shade.
When we checked in, we were shown to our site. Our kids 5 and 3 enjoyed the shady playground. There were no mosquitoes even though there was water nearby. Very clean and quiet park. Friendly staff. Great for a stay when visiting the West and Waco area.
