Beautiful fall colors

The sites are a little close-in, but otherwise perfect. There are so few of them (30 total), so book early- in order to get a fall reservation, I booked nearly a year in advance!

The fall colors are beautiful (not like Northeast colors, but very nice for Texas :) ) There are picnic areas and a nice 4 mile loop to take in the tree scenery too.

Sites have covered picnic tables, water spigots, and fire pits.

Serene water-side campground

Muleshoe Bend has well-spaced out campsites right next to the water- super serene! There's lots of shade at the campsites and each site has a picnic table.

It's worth mentioning the campground doesn't have running water or electric hook-up at the campsites, and only one flushing toilet at the entry, but there are lots of port-a-potties spread out and not too far from any given campsite. The port-a-potties are pristine. Seriously, as someone who's pretty adverse to port-a-potties I don't know that I've seen better maintained ones ever, so don't let this fact dissuade you!

There are some nice trails for mountain biking or hiking.

And the hosts are seriously some of the nicest people I've ever met.

Overall I recommend!

Pro-tip, avoid spot 8, 9 or 17 < those spots don't have shade.

4 stars for not having flushing toilets or water at the campsites, but otherwise, perfect.
