Cypress trees and cement pads

Remember to check your email for your gate access code the gentleman ahead of us did not and it took awhile to get in after a long day of driving. The site we had was right next to the lake which had an active fish population, two gators, and several kayaks. The bathhouse is up on stilts/pillings it was clean and made of logs. the electric service looked new and the water pressure was good. We sat outside even in the 98+ heat to see the activity on the lake. This campground is right off of the interstate but feels like you are in the country.

Chilling by the Lake

We setup right next to the Lake Waco, we enjoyed a light breeze coming off the lake most of the time. We arrived after the gate house closed but before the gates closed. Sites look level but we needed to reposition a couple times to get everything thing level and maximize the view. All sites come with covered picnic table and fire ring. Not many trees so shade is hard to find. Was a great place to stay and is close to Waco. Only negative was the bathhouse needed some attention. But overall this is a good place to stay

Just what we needed

This quaint campground is full of charm. We got in just before the Governor changed the rules so visitors must quarantine for 14 days so they were closing the campground to out of state campers. The sites are mostly level and each site has a covered picnic table and an artificial grass mat. The site we had, had a view of the Rio Grand (not so grand anymore) and is convenient to I 25 so getting around was easy. The bathrooms are clean but need some minor repairs, they also are not air conditioned so pick your shower/bathroom times carefully or it will feel like a sauna. I think we got a special rate because of the pandemic. Water is on one side of the pad, electricity on the other but it was not a problem when we positioned our camper. Overall a great experience

Family fun

Half our party stayed in the motel we stayed in one of the 9 open sites. You will need 20 feet of sewer house, 20/30/50 amp service at each site. Use a filter to remove the slight odor to the water. Shower house was clean and the water was hot. This park has tent camping RV sites a one story motel and some original cabins from Bryce Canyon National Park. The pool area was nice and the field gave our grandkids a good place to kick a ball and run around the on site restaurant smelled delicious but we cooked our own meals. During this strange time this was a great place to stay. If it was really busy I am not sure we would have enjoyed it as much.

Sleep by a babbling brooke

This is a quiet, friendly place to stay. 80 percent of the campground is long term campers. The owners are amazing. Our only “issue” was the smell of the water in the showers, rotten egg sulfur smell. The trout pond is well stocked and tasted great. We will definitely come back again to unplug from the world.

Old School Gem

This small family run campground reminds me of the camp grounds I visited with my grandfather. Lou meets you at the office and guides you to your campsite and politely offers to guide you in. We used his help and he guided us in to an inch of the cement pad for our front porch. Hook ups are old but well maintained. The campground has tent to big rig spots and about a third of the sites are filled with year round or seasonal campers. Tent sites are near the small stream running behind the grounds. Clean bathhouse, rec-room with pool table and two cabins to rent. Overall a great location with easy access to Franklin NC for food and breweries. AT and Bartram trail access nearby, lake and river are close. I would give it a try no matter how you camp.
