This is a real "RV Resort". Enclosed swimming pool, outdoor movies, playground, horseshoes, shuffleboard, tennis courts, sand volleyball court, and fenced dog walks. This place is a BLAST! Kids have had a great time both times we've been. Lots to do, including well stocked catch and release ponds (caught 19 bass in one day between 3 of us!). A friendly staff has always taken care of us, including letting my daughter paint her craft and letting me pay later, since I forgot my wallet. Extra charges for crafts, ice cream, pancakes and bike rentals, but giving it away would just increase daily rate. We have been here twice with friends and will definitely come back again.
Nightly rate includes the "activities charge" for the 3 of us. Higher rate for the "Holiday Weekend," even though it was the middle of the week. Overall, this is what I expect from a RV RESORT. The 2 water slides and 2 pools are the big draw during the summer and everything was open and working for the posted hours for our whole stay. Kids loved the evening movies under the stars, but bring your own chair! The majority of the staff was very helpful and friendly, but one guy almost ruined the whole experience for us. Everything was clean and any maintenance problems were resolved by the next day at the latest. Limestone sites were level enough that nothing else was needed, but the dust can be an issue with no wind blowing it away. The staff informed us that they are adding a 3rd slide and a "Splash Park" where the petting zoo used to be. Lots of construction currently going on, but will be really nice when done. This was our first time at Lone Star Jellystone and we will be back. THE KIDS HAD A BLAST!!!
The comments about the highway noise are overstated. Never really noticed, but the A/C was running just about the whole time. Also, no noise problems from the public boat ramp next door, and we were on that side. If you will be in your trailer during the afternoon in the summer, PAY EXTRA FOR THE RIVERFRONT SITES, or you won't be in the shade until after 6pm. Nice park w/ level concrete pads. Restrooms exceptionally clean and well air conditioned. Only downside was no place for my daughter to ride her bike w/o being on the only access road.
Stayed here over Spring Break 2011. VERY NICE sites if you pay extra for the sewer (AAA sites) in the new camping area. In-laws chose not to pay the extra $10 a night and barely got their 5th wheel down the sloping site they got. The AAA sites are level w/ asphalt drive, concrete picnic area w/table and leveled, graveled fire pit and tent areas. Connections for water, electric and sewer were all conveniently at the back of the slot on the correct side. OVERALL a beautiful park w/ playgrounds and activities for kids, right on the lake and just a few minutes from downtown Hot Springs. PS: Garvan Woodland Gardens is a MUST SEE!!! Just wear good walking shoes and find all the side trails you can!
WOW! This is what I expect from a "RV Resort". Stayed here for 5 nights and used the complimentary Sea World shuttle twice to save $30 in parking charges. VERY CLEAN bath houses. The whole park was very well maintained. I have picked the spot I will request next time, as the neighboring RV's slide was about 6" from our awning (we got along great, so didn't matter too much). Pool and playground are GREAT for kids (mine's 7). We will be back next time we go to San Antonio!
This is NOT a resort by ANY stretch of the imagination. At least 75% long term, only a few "transient" spaces available. PARK HAS NO BATHROOMS OR SHOWERS! You must use your RV's facilities. Pool was closed all 3 days we were there. I will not use this place again!
This was the only RV park open in Galveston when we wanted to go back. The State Park was still be rebuilt and the only other park on the island was in Jamaica Beach, so we stayed here. Overall, not a bad stay. About half of the park was long term, most of which were construction workers. They were gone early and back late, so we really didn't even notice. The one problem is the "restaurant" next door. It is actually a bar with a large patio and live bands. If you can, make sure your reservation is for section A or B. We were in A and with the doors/ windows shut and A/C running, the music was not an issue. If you are in section D, that might not hold true, as you would be backed up to the common property line. The bathrooms were clean, but one of the 3 showers in the men's was "Out of Order". We used the park as a place to sleep, heading out to Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens and The Strand for most of each day. I would stay again, but would rather go back to GISP when it reopens.
We stayed here for Spring Break to go to Six Flags Over Texas. Although we used the park for a place to sleep, we were impressed. If not for the occasional airplane or siren, you wouldn't know you're in the middle of the DFW Metroplex. Very quiet and shaded, but only 1/2 mile to Super Target, a mall and too many restaurants to name. On arrival, we were led to our site by one of the Hosts, who guided us backing into our site. He made sure we knew where all the connections were and that we had any necessary adapters. The bathrooms were very clean with shower, toilet, sink and chair in each. It's a nice, quiet, clean place to stop and we will definitely stop here again!
