Very nice COE Campground on the Brazos River

We spent 4 nights at this campground on the Brazos River and we hope to go back.  Some of the campsites close to the river have no shade, but others have shade from some large old pecan trees.  There are remnants of the old ghost town, Kimball on the property.  It was very nice and the fishing was good.  The only cell service available we were told, is AT&T.
