We camped in the wooded area so we could have a campfire (not allowed on water front sites). Excellent park staff, very clean park, excellent size sites. We met several great folks who have been camping there on the same weekend for the last 10/20 yrs. We were able to get through all turns with a 35' trailer and a long bed truck.
Excellent park, clean, well kept. Sites are smaller/closer together than what we normally experience at Texas State Parks. Park staff very friendly. If you fish, check the calendar for dates when the river is stocked. We just happened to be there the day after it was stocked with Trout...the kids had a great time catching their limits. Would definitely go back, it is probably a great place to go in the summer.
Park is clean & quiet, sites are level, restrooms are clean. Hiking is great, museum is great, trading post is great. Cell signal (Verizon) available at ranger station. Mesquite loop has a few muddy sites (if raining) but has the largest sites in the park. Park hosts and rangers were helpful and accommodating. Would definitely return!
Excellent overnight stop-over park on our way to Palo Duro. We arrived late on Friday night, staff provided cell phone number in case of trouble. The office had great instructions park routes were clearly marked, sites were level (gravel), there was plenty of grass for our pets (yes, we picked up after them). There was road noise from the highway and the GPS/Google maps did not locate the park adequately. There are signs at the Fruitland Road exit (must u-turn upon exiting the highway) The GPS coordinates are N33 deg 29.273, W097deg 47.879
We stayed here 2 nights while sightseeing in the San Antonio area. The park is quiet and clean. Its terrain is typical of the Texas hill country (rocky, not much grass). Note that there is a huge grassy area with kids play equipment near the bathrooms which worked out perfect for our pets (yes, we picked up after them). The site was level and the roads easy for our 35' Trailer+ 20' Truck to get around in. The management was very accommodating and responded quickly to our emails. We had good Data service with Verizon.
Very nice park hidden behind a ball field, we were in site 14, 20 feet away from the stream. Just as we were arriving it was downpouring, while the stream rose about a foot (within its banks), it quickly subsided when the rain stopped. The roads were crushed rock and sites were level and roomy. Lots of walking opportunities for kids and dog. We stayed one night on our way to the Smokies. I would much rather stay here than a "parking lot" campground.
Excellent state park on a 650 acre lake. While just passing through, we enjoyed the peace and quiet. Most sites were asphalt & level and most had built in decks. The rangers were very hospitable and helpful. We had an sugar ant problem when we awoke in the morning so make sure to treat all the ground touch-points on your camper. No ants in our tow vehicle. Each site had a trash can, we must not have secured ours since the racoons got into it overnight. Would definitely return to this campground. It's about 15 miles off the highway.
Stayed 4 nights thanks to prior reviews on this site. The Mountain view section: roomier mostly grassy sites. Riverfront section: seemed to be packed in tight. The camp ground is on a river located about 1 mile from the national park, you can tube from the national park right back to the campground. The grounds were immaculate, lots of room for the kids to play, facilities very clean/well maintained. White water rafting and zipline were 30 minutes away at the gorge. This was a great summer destination for our 13/17 year olds. Flys were the only bugs we experienced. Temperatures were low 60's in the morning, 90's during the day and mid-70's in the evening. We can't wait to return.
