Actually the park IS open, although it's more or less an afterthought at this point. The spaces are all concrete, plenty wide and many of them are pull-throughs. Where it's not paved is all grass, and no gravel, making it a clean place to park. Local cable TV worked well, Wi-Fi ok only if you can get a spot close to the main building. (However, they use the front part of the park as part of their RV business, so there are a number of boats and RV's parked in what used to be RV slots.) A pretty well kept secret, and worth a try if you are staying near Galveston for a spell. It's right off I-45, so it can be a bit noisy but towards the back you don't really notice it. One other thing, if there ever is another big storm, don't leave anything at this park, by the looks of things it is actually below sea level, at any rate below the dam and definitely flood prone. $350 month but electricity was extra. I would stay here again. Call the RV dealer before you show up.

Based on a weekly rate. Very clean park. A majority of the sites are pull-thru, tho not the ones near the river. You have river access after scaling 2 flights of stairs, located between site 9 & 10. Right across the river from Garner SP. Garner can get a little noisy on weekends, so this is a nice alternative. Bathrooms/showers a little old but well maintained. Cable worked well, tho it had only about 10 channels. Wi-Fi costs $2/per day per device. What this means if you have 2 I-phones and a laptop it will cost you $6/day, a little cheesy IMHO but the system itself was fairly fast and dependable. One other thing: If you are coming to this park from Uvalde, don't try and use County Rd 150 from the south, it crosses the river but is often covered by water. Go a little further north to FM1050, then pass up Garner SP entrance and turn right just after the bridge. I would stay here again.

Most of the spaces were pull thru, all are gravel tho mostly level. Cop shop is right next door, seemed safe and the Wal-Mart is 2 blocks away. Bathrooms/showers were old, but clean. Laundry room worked. Wi-Fi worked most of the time, it seemed to be at it's worst in the evening, maybe because that's what everyone else is doing. Cable was very good, more channels than you usually get. Center of Fredericksburg is about 2 miles. A lot to see and do in this area of the Texas Hill Country. Park is not the Taj Mahal but a good value for the price. I would stay here again.

We stayed here a week, the rate reflects 7 days stay. The location is very good, it sits between the state and national parks, 80 miles south of Alpine and maybe 5 miles from the eclectic little town of Terlingua. The staff overall was helpful, there is a small store and a laundry within walking distance. It is very, very dusty and usually windy but it is, after all, the desert. The Wi-Fi worked sometimes, sometimes not. I went once or twice to the office to get them to reset it, though most of the staff did not know how to do that. Cable TV was terrible where we stayed (on the south end, same side as the stables) but supposedly it is better on the north-east side, I have no way of knowing. Additionally, there is a noisy power plant on the south east side of the park. There are a lot of Sheriff patrols and Border police that frequent the area, and it did seem safe while we were here. Really there isn't much in this area for alternatives if you have a very large unit like we have. There are steep grade hills east and west of this park. I would stay here again were I to return to Big Bend. PS: Beware of snakes at night, not usually a problem during the day however.

Very dusty, and it was very windy during our stay. I'm told it's typically breezy but this was unusually strong. Very little to do. WiFi worked well, cable TV had something like 6 channels, I suppose better than nothing. I was warned to watch out for snakes, I did not see any but was wary. I did see deer in the park near dusk. Manager is in a motorhome in front. Way too many nit-picky rules. Owner seems to have a big problem if you bring along a motorcycle. I won't be back.

Very quiet park, friendly owner. There are a few sites that are pull-through but they were taken, however there is plenty of room for backing. Located about 1.5 south of Hondo, definitely flatlands but still close to restaurants and shopping in town. I'd try and park as far away from the windmills as possible, and it is a bit dusty at times, but overall a good value and I would stay here again.
