This is what I would want to know if I were staying at this COE campground. If you use Google Maps to find the campground it will lead you down a dead end road. I would estimate that a very small percentage of sites in this park are level. One of the major problems on the COE reservation website is that you can't tell what kind of site you are committing to. I would recommend that you call before coming to make sure you will fit. Site 56 is much smaller than stated on their website and us up hill. You will not be able to level a class A motorhome. We checked in for a 14 day stay that included Memorial Day weekend. When we pulled up the attendant notified us that he didn’t think we would fit in site 56. I called the 1-800 at www.recreation.gov and ask if they could find us another site after the Memorial Day weekend that we could move to. Once inside the park the 1-800 can't help you. I ask if the park attendants could find us another site after the Memorial Day weekend. Other things to know are that most Texas lakes are very low, beaches aren’t the same, boating isn’t the same, etc. This campground is also very near to a military base. This means jets and helicopters as late as 11PM at your quiet campfire. We would not use the showers or the bathroom. One of the urinals would overflow and dump all over the floor. One of the showers drains was completely plugged and overflowing. Had not been cleaned or maintained for some time.

Great location just north of Austin Texas. Close enough that you can drive to town for events or dinner. I would have rated it higher, but it appears that it's getting a bit run down. Bathrooms not well kept. We couldn't tell the last time cleaned. One of the Men's showers was plugged up and over flowing. The lake (like many other Texas lakes) is way down and distracts from the beauty of the area. Campground attendants seemed to be OK, but we didn't really see much of them. Most sites on the inside of loops were level or close to level. Sites on the outside and closer to the water would be difficult to park anything in. Gates have key pad codes. Make sure you get a code if your going to be later than when someone is at the check in gate or you have to walk in. Over all still a good place to camp.

Rate is Passport America. We always stop here when we travel I10 going to visit our Grand Kids. Yes, it is a bit off the highway and you have to go down some dirt roads, but that is little inconvenience. It's not like your coach has never had dust on it before. The owners are great. They will open the gate, show you to your place, and stop for a while to chat. We have a tow car and the sites are long enough that we don't have to unhook. Very nice after a long day of travel when all you want to see is a nice level spot where you don't have to put down the jacks or unhook the car. Just put it in park and hook up. Good AC, Verizon signal strong. We will be back anytime in the area. Good, clean, quiet, no hassle place to stay.

I was hoping for better. Price reflects Passport America. When I first called their national reservation line I was told that they no longer take Passport America. I checked with Passport America because it's still showing on line. I called back and the second person accepted Passport America. We stayed a couple of days, went to the Grand Canyon and came back for one night. When I made the reservation for the second stay I was told by an employee that you can only stay once - no second reservation. I later checked with another employee that allowed me to make reservations for the second stay. Parking spaces are close. Your close enough to your neighbor that when you put your awning out and set under it you are less than 3 foot away from your neighbors sewer connection, sometimes aromatic if they don't use the right hose connection. No one patrols, so not much attention paid to the ‘rules’ you agree to and sign for when checking in. We had fireworks (just a couple), parties on Saturday night that lasted until 3AM, people building fires in portable fire pits. Just across from us one 5th wheeler had 3 cars of 'friends' show up after dark for the party and stayed all night. One of the rules is to use pads under jacks when you level, but we saw many not using them. Dogs not on leash and owners not cleaning up. All asphalt, plenty of pull trough’s as long as people don’t park in the streets, almost level sites or at least most are close. Internet is a slow trickle. If your familiar with the term I measured .4mbps down and half of that for upload. Almost enough to answer emails if your patient. Close walk to downtown and the tourist attractions. Close walk to grocery store and other services. Again, I was really hoping for better - based on the price. It is a nice clean newer park, but without rules and regulations being adhered to I just don't think I would stay here again.

Camped at the end of season. Absolutely great place. Pine trees, beautiful dry Arizona weather, cool nights and warm days. If your idea of the perfect place to camp is someplace up in the mountains with the smell of pine trees and very quiet - this is it. Clean, well maintained, a few pull through sites available. Most sites you will need to level.
