I would like to give this campground a 5, but I can't. We are in a pandemic and the bathrooms are not clean. According to the sign on the door, the restrooms were supposed to be cleaned on Thursday, and some people came and maybe, swept. The men's room and the ladies room doors do not close all the way so there is a rock that everyone is supposed to shove up against the door to keep it shut but many people can't be bothered,so they are full of bugs. The staff that we saw were very helpful and nice, but the bathrooms are not clean.
*though this park is technically an “airstream” park, it allows non airstream RV’s for camping, just add a slightly higher nightly price.
PAVED SITES: the terraport area for RV’s is nicely paved, smooth and flat. Sunsets here on the hill are lovely.
BATHROOM: bathrooms are cleaned regularly.
COMMUNITY: the airstream community that lives here permanently are very friendly and plan many community events open to all, like bean bag baseball and soup night.
GATED: the community is gated at night with a code which makes the place feel more secure than other off-the-highway campgrounds.
LOCATION: there’s nothing much in Hillsboro, not even good restaurants. The nearest HEB grocery is over 30 minutes away. This campground is great for stopping through, but a pain if you’re looking for a long term stay with nearby things to do.
LOUD: the highway is close by and pretty loud, though when you’re inside your rig it’s unlikely you’ll hear it.
Overall we had a pleasant stay here. Our biggest annoyance was having to drive far for groceries, restaurants or for overall civilization. The people here are super friendly and love their airstreams.
We had called and made reservations and as we confirmed asked if a 40ft class A could fit. Well we got there and 1st of all it is so badly run down. Also the spot he wanted us to pull into was on grass and way too small. He said oh you can fit between those 2 trees. Omg I said absolutely not, you see how big our RV is and we would sink. No gravel even. Such a disappointment.
This recreation.gov campground was adequate for our needs. Most sites are shady, the outdoor tables we're sturdy, and there were fire pits and a separate cooking grill on a raised post. They parking pass we're decent asphalt. It is located on Lake Waco. There was some road noise from the highway. The toilet/shower house left a little to be desired. It wasn't as clean as it could have been. The women's showers had 2 stalls, one handicapped. The handicapped shower did not work. The other shower had a very difficult shower head to control the volume and direction of the spray. It was very cold the first morning and the shower building is not heated and had open screening at the top so showering was very eye opening! But the trees were beautiful with quite a few pecan trees. We would probably camp there again.
We had 3 sites that were close enough for all the family to spend the weekend together! The fishing was not great, they have way to many Tilopia fish in the lake. The campground was fun for the kids to explore. The sites are shaded and they were doing some upgrades to the park!
