This park is located between Thorndale and Rockdale. There isn’t much to do in the area and we only stay here when visiting family in the area.
The park is pretty nice with full hookup sites down on the bank of the San Gabriel river. The river isn’t much but it’s a place to escape the Texas heat. There are also more developed spots out by the road. By the more developed area there is also a restaurant and bar.
The campground sits on the site of one of the old Spanish missions from the days when Spain was colonizing Texas. There’s a neat story about the garrison commander killing one of the Priests in a feud over an affair. There are historical markers that speak to the history in the area.
If you’re in the area and you’re looking for a spot to stay at then you really can’t go wrong here.
