We were I. Town visiting family and stayed on the river side - sit 201. Didn’t get a chance to explore the other side. It was quiet aside from Bandera Rd. noice. It is noticeable, though it didn’t bother us for the short time we were there. Camp sites are spread out but not very private. We chose this side to be near the river. Good fishing spots. The swim/floating area is a bit deep in parts. I wouldn’t want to take little kids swimming there without a life jacket. Definitely bring some tubes (or you can rent). On a Tuesday afternoon the swimming area was very quiet and it was easy to stay distanced from others. I wouldn’t say this is a destination park but it’s perfectly fine place for home base if you’re visiting the area. And it has some nice bonuses for the price: pull through sites and campsite sewage. Also, cabin 6 had two unique features: rope swing and waterside stone picnic table tucked away.
I’m not sure what part we stayed in but I know it was very windy and cold but we were there in March and it was the only place to camp… We had a place to lay our head take a shower and cook dinner so it worked. It was very windy so we had to use the picnic tables to block our tent which worked out well.
Park is city run and split into two sections by a highway. Beautiful butterfly and nature garden, kid playground, camping and river access on one side. The other has hiking and biking trails along with camping. Multiple cabins and group camping areas on both sides.
Awesome Full hookup, and sewer
We stayed here for a week in March 2019. We were on #230 on the Mountain View Loop which is water/electric only. Keep in mind, all the sites on the even numbered side in that loop had hookups on the opposite side. Your options are either cross your hoses below your RV or have your door face the road. I think this is the only loop like that. Because there was no separator, you did feel like you were out in the road a bit while camping. The full-hookup sites had an area between the RV and the road to prevent this issue. I wouldn’t stay on that side of the loop again. The leveling was crazy too on that site (and sites nearby). Our tongue jack was out about as far as she can go, but we managed. The park itself is nice and quiet. We didn’t spend a ton of time exploring because we mainly used it as a stopping ground to explore Fredericksburg and the surrounding state parks. It’s about 45 mins to Fredericksburg and the RV parks there are much more expensive. The check-in office is on the opposite side of the street as Mountain View Loop and Deer Field Loop. You go over there to check-in and then come back. Not a big deal though. We did not have good cell phone service, but with the booster it was usable for the hotspot. The sites were a good distance apart from each other and you didn’t feel like you were on top of your neighbor. They also have a dump station. Overall, we would stay here again, but I would choose a spot on the other side of Mountain View Loop or pick a full hook-up site.
Nice and clean place very relaxing and quiet there. Close to town and on the River. Great location
We We stay down by the river. The road was real close to the site that we stayed in period over all the camp grounds are nice well maintained and not stacked on top of each other. Went for a walk and ride on the upper side of the park in that area is much quieter and much more comfortable feeling. We will go back and stay on the upper hillside.
This is a great campground. Bought firewood at the main entrance for $5 a bundle and made a fire at night. The site had water very close by, a nice fire pit, some shady and sunny areas, and a grill. The bath house was very close by and was kept in good repair. Far enough from your neighbors so that you don't really hear them, but not too isolated. Great overall!
Don't be fooled, this city park originated as a State park and has all the amenities!
We stayed in the Fox Run Loop towards the back of the park away from the highway and it was nice and quiet. The showers and restrooms were decent, again reflecting other Texas SP facilities.
The trails varied in terrain and were well maintained as were the rest of the grounds. We didn't check out the river side of the park, however this June we are returning to and will be on the river side and will provide an update afterwards.
Just got back from a weekend trip on the river side. Like the other reviews stated, it was a bit louder being so close to the highway. Additionally, there are street lamps by the ranger station that illuminate the tent sites which were annoying. It was nice however to be within short walking distance of the river, but if I were to go again, I'd stay on the other side of the park like my first time.
We had a great time during the day. Beautiful park next to the river. We were given a spot that was right next to the highway and was very loud. in the evening we could barely sit out next to the camp fire because the cars were so loud.
