Kimball Bend Campground is located on Whitney Lake off the main channel of the Brazos River in Central Texas. The campground offers thirty six 50amp campsites.
Boating, fishing, swimming, canoeing and kayaking are popular activities on the river and downstream at Whitney Lake. Anglers can fish for a variety of bass, crappie and catfish. Visitors enjoy hiking the Chisholm Trail, a historic route followed by upwards of ten million cattle as they traveled northbound from southern Texas to Kansas and adjacent destinations between 1867 and the 1880s. It crosses through the campground and past several historic structures.
This year-round campground offers 34 sites with water and electric hookups. Amenities include flush toilets, showers, drinking water, a dump station and boat ramp.
The Brazos River flows gently over sand and rocks at Kimball Bend. The surrounding rolling hills are covered with cedar, Live and Post oak.
The 12.5 mile Hopewell Trail is nearby. It allows hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. Visitors can choose to travel north on the trail to Kimball Bend Park, or south to Lakeside Village and Powelldale Mountain.

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.
