Billy Goat's Gruff is horrible!!!! It is some stupid old grumpy woman’s back yard. It is not even a real camp ground. She stuck some window units in her sheds and calls them cabins. What a joke! Not one of the camp sites is right on the river like she will promise. We were going to camp there the weekend of August 1st, 2009. We got there and she was already mad because we arrived at 11 am. She says “Check in is not until 2:30, but I guess I could let you in.” This is here stupid backyard we are talking about; really, when does her yard close or open? We arrived and she was freaking out because the other person in our party had a pop-up camper; I had call her the Friday before and told her we were changing the tent site to a pop-up. I also had mentioned that we might have some other people showing up the next day and they would pay when they got there. She started to freak out and tell me, my wife and my friend that we were liars and to leave. She said she was going to call the police on us and my 3 small children (1, 3, and 4 year old.) I told her we would leave if she gave us our money back; she freaked out again and went in the house. We were promised 2 camp sites right on the river with water and electricity, not camping in some crazy lady’s backyard. She also told us, when asked about not being right on the river, “if you are too lazy to walk down to the river, you don’t need to be here. Camp at your own risk. There are many other places to camp; do not try here. Ask psycho woman for a picture of the “grounds” from the back of here house, you will see what I am talking about. I doubt she has any repeat campers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was the only full hook up campground we could find on the river. Sites are nice and wide. We got a site on the river and enjoyed making a fire on the riverbank. Kids enjoyed playing in the water all day. They have really nice springs that feed into the river that you can tube. Also nice shallow pools for floating. The springs are fast moving though. The store is very expensive for the things you need like tube rafts and ice. They charge $2 to blow up your raft with a compressor. Now let's talk about the bathrooms. Gross!!! These were the dirtiest bathrooms. The toilet stalls don't have doors and the main bathroom door doesn't close all the way. Sinks are gross. You don't want to touch the handles. Bugs everywhere. Overflowing trash cans. The only showers are in the day use tent camping area, and they cost a dollar for 8 minutes. Watch out for clumps of hair on the shower floor. They are cleaner than the other bathroom, but that's not saying much. The dude that cleaned the bathroom only emptied the trash and replaced the toilet paper. Floors, sinks, and toilets were left untouched. This was ridiculous for $50 a night. Pros: beautiful river setting and nice spacious level sites with full hook ups. They had trash cans at the end of every site, and the grounds were kept clean. Cons: Disgusting bathrooms. We won't come back here because of that. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate is based on monthly stay. We've enjoyed our stays here, but it's worth noting that the difference between winter and summer stays is significant. During the summer, it's busy and expensive; during the winter, quiet and very reasonably priced. Sites are unique in that they are three spaces wide with a concrete pad in the middle. Motohomes can pull in and have a view of the river; others can back in since there are hookups on both sides. Sites are packed gravel and have a table and BBQ grill. This is a no-frills park; restrooms are not well maintained, there's no cable TV, pool, playground, or reliable Wi-Fi; it's just a place to enjoy the river. During the winter the river is stocked with trout, and there are plenty of fisherman on the river. The park is generally quiet at night, but there is no management presence after 4:00 so there is no control over noisy campers, and watch your step as many dog owners do not leash or clean up after their pets. Convenient to New Braunfels and San Antonio, yet in a rural setting. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a lovely park with sites located on the river. As described by others, the sites are difficult to get into and if there's a traffic jam, even more so. We were here off season during the week (hence the lower rate, too), so it wasn't a problem for us. Sitting by the river, watching the birds, then the sunset, it was very peaceful. I can imagine it might not be on a busy weekend. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
My rating might have been higher except for the extreme drought that Texas is currently going through. River was hardly flowing and water just seemed dirty. Find a place where the water is moving. Overall not a bad experience, we just prefer a little more space to move around. It's a party place on the weekends. Pros: asphalt roads, crushed granite pads, good power and water ( temps were 100+ and campground was full), good space between sites, quick check-in, friendly atmosphere ( except for the owner, but that's another story) Cons: have to hitch / unhitch quickly otherwise you will be blocking traffic, tight turns and little space to move / back-in, trash cans overflowing, no cable, expensive for what you get. Will try a different place next time on the Guadalupe River. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It was a little hard to get our 30ft trailer backed into our spot. The camp site was full, and we got there late. So my advice is get there early if you have a long trailer, or just get there early period. When we made the reservation the lady on the phone said there aren't a lot of tent campers along the water unless it's a holiday weekend, but she may have understated that. It wasn't packed, but there were a lot of tents. Over all it was a very nice camp and the convenience to the Rockin' R made it the perfect place for us to stay and float the river! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed here over Easter weekend..very dusty, dirty, crowed, trash not picked up from community trash barrels, lots of cars, tents, music at night, camp fires. Cash only. Wanted a credit card in case of any damage done by my motorhome. Area by river trashy & unkept. We stayed in motorhome facing river in double space - one for rv and one for car for $50 per night-no discounts. Only good thing is close to New Braunsfels & Gruene towns. RV area parked on a crushed sand and red clay iron ore material. wifi good.. Will not stay here again..Mostly camper,tents, 5th wheels and lots of cars... extra fees for some things. Guests must pay entrance fees.. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park: the kids loved it. Lots of space between sites. Will come back again. Now for the "warning." They have street lamps out toward the edge of the road, which for the most part are a good thing. However, if you have a Large Trailer, backing in around them into your site could be a major problem as there is not enough room for you truck to swing out. Stayed at Site #31. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The price reflects the monthly rate. We stayed at this campground two months this winter and two months last. The campground has become very noisy due to motorcycles. The WIFI either doesn't work or is very slow. I had just finished waxing my truck when a grounds keeper used a leaf blower to blow granite dust all over it. I will not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice Park, friendly and helpful staff. We had a river front site, very nice!! Great views. Saw lots of fish being caught, though it was stocked twice in two days. Verizon phone worked well, Motosat no problem. They do a good job of keeping this place clean. Have been told it is crazy busy Memorial Day to Labor Day. Rate was based on week stay. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our second time to stay in this park. This time we reserved site #3 due to last year's constant pedestrian traffic crossing to the river though our site (which is very bad manners). I have improved my rating to a 10 since we had no traffic through our site but I did notice anything past site #4 did have the constant pedestrian traffic even though the park has several public access areas to the river. The sites are very large able to accommodate any size rig with ample parking and patio space. A wooden picnic table is provided and the riverfront sites are great. Our site overlooked the falls and sites #'s 1-8 do not allow for day use or tent camping between your site and the river giving you some privacy and room to spread out your pop up awning for shade by the river. Our electric power was great with no disruption in power levels for 5 days of 100+ heat. Our site did require about 1 1/2 inches of leveling on one side of the rig but this is the only negative feedback I can offer. The $60 per night is a little steep but it is the best park on the river and worth the money if you consider the alternatives. We will return again next year. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is our favorite campground and we stay here at least twice a year. We love the easy river access. It's shallow enough to set chairs up in the river and watch the kids play. The staff is friendly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Quiet little park during the winter but hear it is rowdy during the tubing season on the river. Could use a nice laundry and faster Wi-Fi. Price reflects monthly rate. We will probably stay here again early next year while visiting family. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The price reflects the weekly rate in November. Riverfront sites advertised at $45 a night for next summer. The spots on the river can either be back in or drive in. In a motorhome it is nice to be able to drive in and have a view of the river but it does put you very close to your neighbor that backs in especially if you both have slides. We saw two units that were about 3" apart. It didn't bother us but may others. The concrete patio was the whole length of our 40' motorhome; nice for keeping the unit clean. We loved this park and would love to be able to come back in the summer when there is rafting on the river. The RV park also has a rafting business and in the summer there is food available and they are supposed to be opening a restaurant next spring. There is a store that carries basic food,drink and clothing. There are also many tenting and picnic sites. This park is the nicest on the river and the closest to New Braunfels and Gruene. Despite what another review said, I saw quite a few dogs that were over 15 pounds; the rules say 20 pounds. If ever in this part of the world again we will stay here for sure. Wi-Fi was good on all days except when it rained and Verizon worked well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The river front site we stayed in was level, with concrete and gravel and quite a bit of room; but this campground is rather expensive for what they don't offer. To be fair: it is the nicest campground on River Road, so I guess that is what you are paying for. The staff is very friendly and keeps the campground clean, cruising around daily picking up after those campers who don't pick up after themselves. We enjoyed the river, but several people thought they could use our site to cut through to the river, even though they had paid less for their sites because they were second row. This was a bit of an issue and the staff did not enforce using the public access area for those campers. Also, quite time rules were not enforced: the campsite next to us was loud and drunk late into the night for the 3 nights they were here. It would be nice if the policies of the campground were enforced: I would have given a better rating. We may consider this campground again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice park. Each site has a picnic table and a grill but the grills are nothing to write home about. The grating is to high above the charcoal. Pets only allowed if they weigh less than 15 pounds. The park was very clean and has a great spot on the river! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean, very attractive park. It was very tight for my trailer and very narrow for my group that was camping. The spaces that we were in on the river were to narrow for real camping. If you stay in the trailer the whole time it would be great, but we like to sit outside and visit. The water was cold, but that is the Guadalupe River for you. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Like my parks with great scenery, if you get the right site, the a stay can be close to perfect. A river front site is great, especially for motorhome as you can pull straight in. If you are looking for river front camping this is hard to beat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My first time RV'ing in a rental and this was my first campground in years. Very pleasantly surprised with the beauty of the location, right on the river, and the park is tidy and well kept. The store is like a mini mart, a bit of everything in there, and a tube rental within walking distance. The RV sites are surrounded by tent campers, and the place was full on weekends so if you want to be in the more quiet area, pick a center RV spot. We were in spot 1 on the end and had no problems, but other spots in the center will be quieter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 8 / 10 ]
The reason we gave this and 8 out of 10 instead of a 10 out of 10 was no wi-fi and no cable available. If you're interested in a quiet setting on a river, clean, crushed gravel fairly level sites, then this is the place for you. We used our air card for our wi-fi connection and the signal was fair, enough to pull in mail, etc. It it located just outside of New Braunfels which is a nice community with lots of amenities nearby and of course close to San Antonio. We paid $40.00 a night which we felt was high but would probably stay here again. We understand the weekly and monthly rates are quite a bit more reasonable, but you would have to check that yourself. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of the best RV parks we have stayed at and would have given it a 10 but they don't have a laundromat. This park was rebuilt after the 2002 flood and is modern with large sites that can be accessed on either side of your concrete pad. Lots of room between sites and views on to the Guadalupe River. Their Web site doesn't do justice to this spectacular park. We stayed for a month at $295 which included power !!!! The New Braunfels area is about 25 miles north east of San Antonio and has lots of history. The Laundromat is on the old section and not usable but lots of choice in New Braunfel. Most of the RVs in this park are local people who come out for the weekend. This means it is very quiet through the week. The staff are friendly. Internet is spotty but my Verizon Air Card worked well. This park is a must stay at. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The review below says it all. I didn't rate it a 10 because wifi is important to us, and it is very weak and I was located within 100' of the store. They even had routers on the poles for those further down the road Nice turn around area too. Not many folks there, it was about 1/4 full at most. Lots of snow birds and trout fisherman. Our neighbor complained he caught his 5 limit before breakfast and ran out of things to do! The sites were gravel with concrete picnic pad. The river view was great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were pleasantly surprised by this park; low monthly rate ($295) included electric, the sites were very large, and the area is quiet during the winter months. Hookups are unique; each site is three lanes wide with hookups at each side. This allowed us to pull in nose-first with a great view overlooking the cypress-lined Guadalupe River. Sites have a large cement patio, picnic table, and barbecue on a stand. The area is generally quiet except for motorcycles on the adjacent River Road, and was only a bit crowded once the state began stocking trout every Friday in December. The staff was very friendly, there is a small store, and WiFi (weak & spotty) is free. The Verizon Air Card worked very well. Just a short (3 miles) from New Braunfels which has all amenities. No pets, glass, or Styrofoam allowed along the river, but during the winter small pets are allowed in the RV area. This is a huge "toobing" area during the summer and is crowded and noisy. We enjoyed our stay and will return next winter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here for the last few years. It is a very busy park, but very kid friendly. They will not allow dogs over 20 pounds. Beautiful views of the Guadalupe River. It it worth the few dollars extra for the river view spots. Half of the campground is for tent camping and is a wild place. The RV side is pretty quiet. They have on site sheriff's deputies to maintain the quiet hours after midnight. Weekday nights are pretty low key, but Saturday night is hopping. Very strict on their rules. We keep staying here, primarily because of the location on the river. There are two river outfitters within a block. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park directly on river for rafting and fishing, however the river levels were very high and dangerous for rafting up steam but down steam there was plenty of white water for all. The camp is broken up into two sections, RV and tents. The RV side was excellent, however the “White Trash Bash” (tent) was a sight to see mostly for the entertainment value for the adults. It was little difficult getting out of the RV park in a big rig with a dead end turn around instead of an easy exit loop, still a great place for the family and we will return again. PS… NO DOGS ALLOWED. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here during the winter and enjoyed the river view from our site. Very clean and well maintained. Sites are somewhat narrow and close together but each has a concrete pad with a picnic table. Great place to stay in summer to access the Guadalupe River for tubing, canoing, and swimming. Well stocked camp store. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pretty, but pricey for size and quality of site. No cable, very few pull-thrus, poor navigation, no one available after 5 pm, and despite their Woodalls listing, NO PETS - they make this very clear after you get in the park, repeatedly with signage everyway. In fact, signage is their best feature... lots of rules. Sorry, I won't be back- I expect more from a site than this. No public restrooms, or showers on RV side either. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Was okay place but right next to the road and you could hear the traffic all night long. More for the people who like to tube. I probably wouldn't go back but doesn't mean that it's not a nice place. More for your party type people. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is probably the nicest RV park on the River Road between Canyon Lake and New Braunfels. You can't beat the location by Huaco Springs and Slumber Falls. The staff is friendly and the sites are level. On crowded weekends in the peak season, I suspect they are tight. We were there in off season and could enjoy the beauty of the Guadalupe River in uncrowded conditions. The restroom facilities, though new, are not well kept. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is located on River Road, probably as close as you can to the river without putting pontoons on your camper. Roads were asphalt, sites were gravel with concrete pad for picnic table. The sites are large enough to park your trailer and then your tow vehicle beside it. Small grill on site. The grounds were clean, but tent campers destroyed the bathrooms by the weekend. River access is easy from the concrete ramps. There are shallow pools in the river perfect for small kids. We have a another trip scheduled in August... I can't wait. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good overnight stop off I-35 in the Texas hill country. An older “trailer park” with mostly full time residents in trailers and park model trailers-aka cottages. "Resort" is a misnomer. Park is overpriced even with Good Sam discount. Passport America is not accepted on the weekend. Well marked access off highway just south of town. Efficient but not friendly office staff. Good asphalt interior roads with level gravel sites. Sites are large and long. The large mature trees make it a little tight to maneuver for big rigs. Watch your clearance. Utilities conveniently located and worked properly with good 50 amp service. Picnic table at each site. Pet friendly for friendly pets. Lots of room to walk Fido. Good free Wi-Fi. Strong Verizon data and cell phone signal, with cable TV stations. Clean modern showers and laundry room, with a pool, hot pool, exercise room and large rec/meeting room .Park is adjacent to I-35. In spite of the location it was quiet with no train noise, no plane and moderate traffic noise. Nice store and kid play equipment and nice pool and rec room. Close to super markets and hardware stores. I would not return due to the trailer park atmosphere, the age of the park and the price. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Spent a week here and used park to visit several areas including San Antonio (about 25 miles) and Lockhart. We were in the park farthest from the office-they have three entrances. Our area was was half full. Office people were very nice. Price reflects Passport America rate. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is a long ways from a resort; highway noise, train noise all night. Tree limbs growing over roads and camping spots, two new holes in our roof. When I used my auto level my tires were 6 inches off the ground. When I complained about our site, I was told they trimmed trees after they had several complaints, and if I had moved around several times and re-leveled I would have found a more level place on that site. I told them for $47 dollars a night the entire site should be level and tree limb free. The manager said if I did not like my spot I could leave. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
My rate is based on a weekly rate. Just an okay campground. I thought the spaces were a little tight and speeding vehicles through the campground was an issue. You will pick up some highway traffic noise, but it's not that bad. Access is pretty easy from I-35. This campground is like a lot of others who call themselves a "resort", it's in name only, not really a resort. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The setting of this place was very nice and comfortable. The only negative was the road and train noise from the nearby freeway and tracks. If you are on the west side of the park the noise is a bit loud. The bathrooms/showers were SUPER clean. I was in an area that seemed like it had long term clients but other than the road noise this place was very nice and easy to get to. The Wi-Fi was a bit weak but otherwise we enjoyed the stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice place. There is a steady noise from interstate 35, but it was a nice place. Only big complaint was maintenance would come around with a backpack leaf blower and blow off the patios. This would totally dust your rig with dirt and dust. I was not sure why my RV was getting so dusty, then one morning I was here when they did that. That explained it. Over all a good experience. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I wouldn't call this campground a "resort". We stayed here for a month and it was just OK. The sites for monthly are very unlevel and very close together. There were many permanent residents here and it was noisy every morning. The office staff didn't seem to know much about anything. The monthly rate of $600 plus electric seemed very high. Pool area always had lots of kids swimming so not very appealing. OK park for easy access to I-35, but wouldn't stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An older but very well maintained park with two pools and an elaborate play area and game room. Easy, level pull-throughs for short timers. We came to take our grandson to Schlitterbahn again but he had such fun in the pools and game room we never left the park. Some showers and bathrooms are closed this week and next for remodeling but will be very nice thereafter. There is highway and railroad noise, but we would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here while traveling to and from S. Padre Island. Easy in and out to the sites. Staff very friendly and helpful. Nice shade trees. Stayed beside the pool area sites were level. We will stay here again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 10 / 10 ]
Wow. A really fun place for events. Plenty to do in this area. The water parks are amazing. Great adventure but a very busy park. Other than traffic a really fun place. No complaints other than a a little high. But you can see where the money goes. In the park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There was a lot of traffic noise from I-35. The park is full of workers who leave early in the morning & are not quiet about leaving. Very good & friendly staff, & some good cooks for Saturday's Brunch. I am not going to stop at this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a big park with cottage rentals and a lot of permanent guests. Our site was by the recreation building. Our site was pretty narrow. We had a difficult time trying to get our fifth wheel placed so that we could extend our slides without hitting either the post or have the tree branches against the side or have the wheels against the cement pads on which a small picnic table is located. We decided to go for the tree branches. Our site was also not level, which was a problem as we do not have hydraulic levelers. Utilities work well, Internet is good. But also be aware you are very close to I-35 and the noise is constant. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were looking for an affordable place to stay for a week between San Marcos and San Antonio. Most reviews for motels in the area didn't sound that attractive, clean, etc. The rental cottages/mobilehomes at Hill Country RV were a good price as well as clean and a great location for day trips. We rented a 1 bedroom w/loft since there were just two of us, but they also had 2 & 3 bedroom cottages. The furniture was the basic RV rental cottage/cabin decor. Everything was clean, lots of towels, hot water in the shower. The bedroom was small, very crowded. The living room/kitchen area was large and ours had a leather couch that pulled out into a sleeper. There were 2 double beds up in the loft, but the peak clearance up there is like 3 to 4 feet, so best let the kiddos sleep there. Flat screen TVs in both living room and bedroom. There was a coffee maker, toaster, MW, sufficient kitchen utensils and (basic) cookware to get by, but we didn't seem to have any bake ware which seemed strange for cabins usually rented by the month. A/C worked well and so did the wall heaters. Lots of windows to let the breeze into the cottage and a nice front porch to sit on. New Braunfels made for an excellent base to head out sightseeing. From HCRV we did day trips to the Spoetzle brewery in Shiner, the Alamo & Riverwalk in San Antonio, the Wineroad (Hwy 290) tasting tour (10 wineries) to Fredericksburg (toured LBJ's ranch along the way). Gruene 1800's historic district is short drive. New Braunfels annual Wurstfest celebration is a must to see as well. It ran from Nov 4th thru 13th this year. We took a taxi from HCRV so neither of us would have to drive back after sampling the numerous German biers they served. There's an HEB (large Texas grocery store) and a WalMart just an exit up I-35 for supplies. HCRV has indoor and outdoors pools, a hot tub, game room, laundry, Wi-Fi, etc. View their website for more info about on site amenities. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
A clean, friendly park. We stayed in the section for short-term visitors and were quite comfortable in a 40 footer. The sites are level and the utilities efficient and well-placed. This park is convenient to interstates 35 and 10, making trips into the San Antonio Riverwalk an easy ride. We stayed here using Passport America, and will return when in the area once more. We camped here in a Motorhome.
OK maybe a little too family friendly? We wanted nice and quiet after being on the road for many weeks but instead we were two RV's from a very rowdy bunch. 10 pm quiet time but I think they are a little too lenient with that. Other wise, clean, level and close to restaurants and sight seeing. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were put into the older part of the 'Resort' I am assuming because we were here for only a few nights and used the PA discount. Another 'Resort Park' that has a nice website and brochures but really lacks when you see it in person. The part we were in is definitely showing its age. Railings at the slabs were falling apart, blacktop roads were deteriorating, exposed electrical piping,etc. The majority of the sites in this part are permanents and those are showing their age also. The center part of the park consists of 'cottage rentals' up front and some VERY rundown mobile homes in the back. Wi-Fi was OK (Tengo), phone tethering was just as quick. Good cable TV channels. I wouldn't have paid more than the Passport America rate. Won't return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice RV Resort. It is easy to get to, right off Route 10 on Rueckle Rd. The park consist of 3 sections. The 1st and 2nd sections are older mobile homes (which are being replaced). The 3rd section is for RVs. They have 2 pools. The one in the RV section was cool, indoors and with a spa. (Refreshing after all the too hot outdoor pools we had been in, in this record hot Texas weather.) The sites are gravel with a concrete patio. We stayed here for 1 week. Very nice, just watch the wind if you put out your awnings. Don't as this is Texas. The rate is PA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our first time to Hill Country RV Park and we will certainly come back. It was clean, quiet, and convenient for our travel plans. Friendly staff, nice laundry room, clean showers and bathrooms made this a pleasant stay. Close to the highway so you don't have to go looking for it in the dark, gas station within walking distance if you forgot something. Nice game rooms and pool areas. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the third year we have stayed at this park for short visits during the winter and we were disappointed this year. The park seems more run down, crowded and not as nice as before. There are more permanent residents now. The landscaping was damaged in the heavy rains and is not being repaired. The laundry and bathrooms are ok. There are lots of things to do for kids. The park feels more like a mobile home park now. We will try a different park on our next visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is quite crowded. We pulled into a site to stay for a few days only to find that we had to move the next day. 2nd day staff very unfriendly, decided to leave and go elsewhere. We would not stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects PPA discount. When we arrived we were given a site number. When we arrived there was someone in the site. We went back to the office and was given another site. We drove the motor home to that site, and it was taken. We then just drove the car back to the office. They assigned us a third site. YEA...it was empty. The men restroom was very dirt. If you want to use the game room, you have to pay $5/day or $10 for 4 nights. Sites are very close together, our pull through wasn't long enough for us to park the car, people park in the street, lots of long-term people who do not keep their site nice. The pets are not permitted on the grass. There is a very small area to walk a dog. We have a cat so we were not affected. We stayed here only because of the price and close to the Wurstefest. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Passport America. An easy on and off RV resort just a block from I-35. If you have a big rig request a site on the hill rather than down in the main camping area. We have done this twice with good results. Our pull through site is level, has a concrete pad and small table. The grounds are clean as was the main area. The resort has a large cable TV hookup (free) with a wide selection of channels and Verizon (cell and broadband) worked just fine. Many fine restaurants in the area up and down I-35, plus a Camping World, and many shops. We will return here because of the convenience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We made reservations for ourselves along with another site for our son; however, upon check-in, we learned the reservation for our son was never entered in the system and the campsite adjacent to ours was occupied. The staff was quick to work with us to rectify the problem. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and have no complaints about our stay at the resort. The only suggestion I would offer the campground would be the addition of an outdoor pool. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Too many dirty and trashy "Permanent" residents. Offer too many "Cabins" that are rented to what appear to be large families that add clutter and noise. We stayed one month. The advertised Wi-Fi never did work properly. Three times the staff was advised and they said that they couldn't do anything about it. They suggested that I call their Internet provider to complain!! Hot tub doesn't work properly, nor does the staff. If you like clutter, and staying next to sites that have permanent units that are in bad need of cleaning and repair, you'll love the place. The most enjoyment that I had there was watching people hook and unhook from sewage connectors that were uphill from their sites. If you have tanks, take a pump or siphoning hose. We left early and forfeited the balance of the rent we had paid. Not really a bad place, just has issues that are not being addressed. Does have some nice sites and shade, you may just insist on staying high on the hill, and near the entrance. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Allow me to preface this review by stating we are newbies in the world of RV parks. All of our previous experience has been in state and federal parks with only water and electric sites. This was our first experience with a “full hookup” style park. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and appearance of the park. We were partially prepared for the full hookup with good hose and connections. The sewer drains do have threaded collars. The sewer connection for our particular site looked to have been repaired and sat higher out of the ground making it hard to get the right slope on our drain hose. A quick trip to Wal-Mart to buy a hose support and we were in business. The park's location is great for accessing the many different hill country attractions. We were only 30 minutes from Sea World and 45 minutes from Austin. The 24 hour Laundromat was nice for those of us who spent all day site seeing. Our kids enjoyed the pool and game room. They were looking forward to jumping on the air trampoline until someone vandalized it and cut large holes in it. There is a lot of traffic from the trailer park that splits the property. This should disappear in the future as the trailers are replaced with cabins. Our voltmeter hovered close to the 112 volt range the entire week we were here. It came close to falling below 110 at least once, but I never saw it over 112. Overall this was a nice park with friendly staff. We enjoyed it so much we are trying to plan a large family reunion here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The rate quoted is Passport America, so the price is good. This is one of the better ones in the New Braunfels area. It's close enough to town to have many amenities within a mile or less. It's very easy to find. The office workers are among the nicest you will find in travelling. Some of the sites do, however, require some levelling, but it is on a hill side. Would definitely recommend this one. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
While this is a park that accommodates many permanent residents, this can be an adequate stopping spot for travelers. The office staff was a little cranky, maybe it was just a bad day. The operation covers 3 separate areas along a gently sloping terrain, and some sites may not be so level in the back motorhome area. There are pools and other amenities, but we didn't use them. There are a large number of "Winter Texans" as well, but these people seemed pretty friendly. The RV park is easy to access off I-35, and shopping is very close. Would we stay again? Probably, as it seems the best choice in the Schertz/New Braunfels area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice resort with clean showers, bathrooms, and park area. We only stayed the night so didn't get to enjoy any of the amenities. Only negative is that there are alot of permanent/semi-permanent residents, but they seem clean and well behaved. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate reflects a 15% Escapee discount. We stayed at this park one night as we were passing through. When I made reservations the day before, the woman was very insistent that check in time was 1:00. We got here about 11:30 and she made a big deal again about check in even though the site we occupied was empty. We have a short motorhome, but even with that, maneuvering to get into the site was difficult. It was a very narrow site and very unlevel. We had to use blocks under the front wheel to level, something we do not often experience at commercial campgrounds. There was a wooden deck that had a sharp metal object attached, not good. The park is very close to the interstate and road noise is quite loud, at least at our site. Perhaps it would not be an issue at some of the other sites. We were close to the entrance and the dumpster, so we had lots of company. We would stay here again only if we needed a place to crash for one night, certainly would not make this a destination spot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A decent overnight stop. Front sites are fairly level. Note the cancellation policy. I canceled a reservation 45 days in advance and was charged a $25 fee, even though daily rate was $18. It is on their website. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here a week while visiting area. Lots to see and do not far from San Antonio, LBJ Ranch, Fredricksburg and others. Friendly staff lots of activities at the park. Wood work shop and two pools. Lots of snowbirds in this big park. Nice and would stay here again. 9 is about the best I give for ratings. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a huge park with two large sections separated by a park model area. The area that we were parked in was rather run down, with gravel parking areas but with a concrete patio. Our patio had a large broken piece making it difficult to use. The residents and staff are very friendly and we will likely return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We spent the month of November at this nice park this year. This is our second visit. The park is well maintained, the restrooms and showers are spotless and the laundry is excellent. There is some freeway noise depending on location of your site. There are lots of planned activities, nice pools, spa, and exercise room. This is the nicest park in New Braunfels in our opinion. We will definitely be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were here during torrential thunder storms but did not have a flood problem as we were in the upper area and did not experience the problems that downpour rain (some said up to 5 inches in 24 hours) can inflict. The site was quiet, plenty of space, and staff was nice. Two things to watch for: first is if you want a "gazebo" site look first because your slides may not work well with the way the park built the gazebos. Second, be careful if you have mail forwarded - our priority mail ended up on the floor in the wrong building and we had to track it down, which we considered sloppy work by the mail handler. Other than that, we really liked this park and would have stayed longer if not for the rain and storms. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very tight maneuvering. Slabs were extremely close to hookups, if you are in a big rig. Entering and exiting sites was extremely difficult. The roads were in poor condition. Too many seasonal guests that made "additions" to their site. Owners need to decide if they want to be a campground or a trailer park. Laundry facility was nice, with fairly new machines, however the walkway to it was poorly lit at night. Pool and hot tub looked nice, as well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff was friendly at check-in. Most sites seem to be permanent. The rate reflects the Good Sam discount. Site patio and table were filthy with tree trash and bird droppings. WI-FI worked only about 10 percent of the time. Laundry and bathrooms were clean. Permanent neighbor said park had new owner about a year ago and wasn't customer oriented. Noticed an empty site with a water leak and pool of water at check-in. About a week later the water was shut off during a shower. Office tried to justify the lack of notice for the shutoff by saying a notice was placed on the bulletin board. No attempt of an apology. I will not again stay at this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A bit tight to maneuver, but good park. No cement slabs. Very small cabins, for sale or rent, on site. Quiet and lots of trees. Large pool/spa and separate large club house. Activities every day with a monthly schedule in office. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It is not a 50+ park. There are many permanent residents. Trees at sites are poorly located to get in and out of spots. Main swimming pool and area are in terrible condition. We did not find many friendly people. It would have been nice is permanent residents and those of us not permanent were clustered. Our neighbors were permanent so we did not get to know them. There were not many activities and no activity director. We stayed for two months at the monthly rate of $375 plus electric. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Friendly staff and right on the highway. Great for overnighters and are adding cabins regularly. Great location, as we were visiting New Braunfels and San Antonio. Will definitely stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The campground was in need of repairs - roads are rough, dump stations was not working and there are lots of long-time "residents". We were fortunate to camp next to a long-term couple who had bird feeds directly outside our windows. It was delightful to watch the various birds feed at our neighbor's location. The trees need to be trimmed because one ripped the top of our camper as we were leaving the site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
They honor Good Sam and other discounts if you ask. Staff was very nice and helpful. Have lots of long term residents that are very friendly. Pool and hot tub inside of buildings. The campground needs quite a bit of repairs. Just stayed 1 night overall it was OK, guess I would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Close to I-35. Friendly staff! Very, very narrow sites for larger rigs to pull into. Best amenity is easy off and on I-35. Would stay again, but not for other than overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were in site #282 and it was level and away from I-35. Good campground, lots of friendly people, excellent staff. No noise, etc. We will come back to the campground. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
The park has a lot of friendly people who are escaping the cold of the north. The pull through in the second section are large enough for a large RV with a tow. It is a little run down but there are new owners and they promise improvements. The only down side is that you can hear road noise from I-35. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a large, clean park with many seasonal or permanent residents. We were in the upper section, so I cannot speak for the other area. It is big rig friendly, but some sites are not good due to the branches. The sites are level with grass between. All roads are paved. The grass could have been mowed, picnic tables stained/painted, etc. The cable has a very large number of channels. We spent two nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not really big rig friendly. Pull thru site barely long enough for 36' with toad. Downhill lie so bad I couldn't come close to level. Difficult to maneuver interior roads with motorhome and toad. Lots of permanent residents. Don't know the criteria for resort but I am sure this campground is not. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a no frills park, but accommodating. Lady in office very nice, but does not know sites. We called in a reservation asking for a space without trees. When we arrived, we could no way get into the pull through site, not even backing in. It is best to get into your toad and check out site first. The sites are not level (in dirt) and can be rutted after a rain. Very narrow when pulling into pull through sites because of the trees and high concrete patio. Friendly place, nothing special, but good for short stays. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a huge park that is primarily oriented towards seasonal and permanent residents. Part of the park is dedicated to mobile and manufactured homes. There seems to be one section of the park for short term stays, and it's not particularly pretty. Then again, nothing about this place is pretty. It's easy to tell that at some point this was a cool place. Those days seem long gone, though. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have been going to the river for 25 years. I have camped at almost everysite except this was our first time and last to camp at KL Ranch camp. I made our reservatons months in advance. We camped in site 94 which was right on the river. The view was beautiful but the camping experience was terrible. There is one road in and the same road out and it is not paved. There is a constant cloud of dust and dirt in the air. The campsites are not mowed or groomed and the tender trees are dried up and starving for a drink of water. The bathrooms are the most disgusting filthy bathrooms I have ever seen. We used our utility shower and other means of toileting and stayed clear of the restrooms. This is not for famillys as we had hoped it is all about getting drunk and bad language. When returning from dinner one night,they had locked the gate and we could not get back into our campsite. We drove around and around untill someone finally came and opned the locked gate so we could get into our site. They proceded to remind us that the gates lock at 10;30. We had returned at 11;00. I have never been locked in a camping area and don't intend to ever be again. Campers beware. The river is beautiful it's a shame greedy people have access to it, who are not putting any money or care into the camping end of it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Wow, what a weekend we had camping at KL Ranch Camp. This is a hidden gem in the Texas Hill Country. Some of the sites are very tough to get into, but you can make it was easy maneuvering. We camped right on the banks of the Guadalupe River less than 15' from the bank of the river. We had a wonderful time shopping in historic Gruene. KL Ranch Camp does have a short camping season, March to September. We'll definitely make a return trip next Spring. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
40 ft RV and toad. Had to disconnect so the toad did not stick out in the road. No Wi-Fi detected. Great restaurants in the area. Did not use public bathrooms. Just a basic place to stay overnight and not fancy or any amenities. People come to float the river in inner tubes. Yes trains are fifteen to sixty yards away. Run the a/c fan to screen the noise or stay down by the river. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Horrible, horrible, horrible is the only word to describe this campground (if anyone would even call this a campground!)!! First of all it is in a horrible location in New Braunfels, TX. You have to drive all over the city to get down into the area where they are located (WARNING: there is a bridge that only has an 11FT clearance on the way to the park)! It took us over 2 hours to FIND the place then another 3 hours trying to find someone to help us set up a reservation! Finally once someone did come to "help" (a Workamper that had NO CLUE what she was talking about) she couldn't answer most of our questions! She flip flopped her stories about how much the rate was per night then couldn't answer us on how much a monthly rate was. They don't offer a weekly rate. After she stared at her computer screen, which seemed for hours, she finally told us we owe $60 for TWO nights during OFF season! I then explained that we only wanted TWO nights (like I originally stated) but for some reason she just couldn't figure out on her calendar of how to change the dates! Then her rate she quoted us first was $15/night then jumped up to $20/night! A Wal-Mart parking lot is MUCH more pleasant than this place. There are SEVERAL LOUD TRAINS that go blaring past the park - VERY VERY LOUD and constant...all day...all night! I could post more but I think you get the drift of what this place is. Keep in mind this place does flood! On a positive note it is located on Comal River. Crystal clear water and excellent for tubing and fishing. There are many beautiful campgrounds in this area of Texas - this just so happens to NOT be one of them. The people there (that live there and work there) are very rude and not helpful! Move on down the road and give your money to a campground that wants to welcome you with open arms! I normally would never post anything negative or rude but I believe that people need to be aware of the truth! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were here in the off season and the place was not crowded. The host did warn us about the trains that come through the night and they were loud!. That is really the only complaint. I would recommend this park if you do not have anything over 35 foot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When we first arrived at this campground we were really excited...until we actually saw our site. It was on a hill overlooking the Comal River but it was a long way down the hill. The bathrooms were within walking distance. They were not clean and always smelled. My family and I would wear our shoes while showering. It also wasn't very private. The stall doors were only about three feet in length and did not lock. The showers had nothing but a thin green curtain separating you from everyone else coming and going. The Train. It came by at least six or seven times a day. It was extremely irritating to wake up at two o'clock in the morning to the sound of the train rumbling by. For the sake of the Comal River I thought it was excellent. The water was cool and clear. I only spotted one snake!!! I gave it a five out of ten rating. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a family park right on the Comal River in downtown New Braunfels, Texas. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. When I made reservations, I thought that we would be staying in the Landa Municipal Park which is an excellent city owned park. But, I discovered upon our arrival that they do not have camping facilities. This Landa RV Resort Park is a private park. It appears to be an old park, all gravel, cramped, and very dusty. They cannot handle rigs over 35' although they did get us in with a 36' motorhome. There are several sites right on the Comal River, excellent for tubing, which is the big tourist attraction here in New Braunfels. Now that is the good part. The bad is that our site is within 150' of a very busy RR track. Hmmm, I don't remember seeing that on their web site! The trains come roaring through all the time, at least every 30 minutes during the day and it seems that often at night. You can feel it coming long before you ever hear the blast of the horns. We are pretty lucky in that some sites back up to within 20' of the train track. My wife and I have had a great time here simply because we can't stop laughing at how lucky we were to find this place. It reminds me of the episode of I Love Lucy, when Lucy and Ethel stayed in a small cabin near the tracks and every time the train roared through, there bed would rumble from one side of the room to the other. Yikes, I think I feel another one coming right now! &^%*&^%$#@! Can you feel it? We have 2 more nights to get through, because you can't cancel a reservation within 14 days of your stay. That should have told me something! OK, enough said. This is a great park if you love the rumble of freight trains and being awakened by the blast of an air horn 150' from your bedroom window in the middle of the night. Would I stay here again? I'd rather sleep in a cardboard box under a bridge! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Unlike the previous poster we found the staff very friendly and helpful,and loved it our stay. The park is spotless; yes,there is a gravel road,but it is well-maintained, we had no problems with it. The staff had the most wonderful Valentines party for the RV'ers with prime rib with all the trimmings, you don't see that too often! We enjoyed our stay,have already booked in for next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Everything one might expect from a commercial campground: rough road within the park, sites too close together, rude employees, little or no shade, spotty WiFi coverage, overpriced general store (though in fairness, was well stocked). We had a good sized rally, so for us, quiet time not starting until midnight was a plus. All hook ups worked fine. No pool but there was easy access to the Guadalupe River. They offered a free concert in their "barn" after dark. However, I'd have preferred watching TV in my air conditioned trailer, to standing in 100° heat for loud music. No cable TV is a huge minus since reception in this area is poor. The broadcast channels we could receive included CBS, NOAA weather, and Country Music videos. The majority were religious and Spanish-speaking stations. Good thing we brought our DVD's. I also didn't much appreciate their slapping a hard-to-remove sticker to the outside of my windshield upon check in. Took me 10 minutes with a razor blade and solvent to get it off when we got home. We came here for a special family event and it's likely we'll never return to this place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is in a very beautiful area. The focus of the park centers around summer-time river recreation with mostly tent camping and a couple dozen RV sites. The RV sites are gravel and level, but fairly close together with a fire pit in-between. The sewer connection was away from the fresh water connection, which we appreciate, but even with our wheels at the end of the pad we needed every bit of a 15ft sewer hose and a 5ft extension. Being in a valley, TV reception was limited to a handful of channels. Wi-Fi was undependable at best. The bathroom/shower were unpainted concrete block walls on the inside and the laundry room was restricted to long term full timers. The staff was not nearly as friendly as in other parks we have stayed at and we felt that they catered more to long term campers. Again, a very beautiful area, but we will not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
On 10/24/11 the entrance sign clearly said: No Pets. But their website says: "Absolutely NO PETS allowed Apr-Sep. PETS are allowed in RVs from Oct-Mar in FHU Sites 134-187." Consequently, we did not stay here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Amazing RV park in a truly beautiful location! This is the largest park we have ever stayed at and it is well run for the amount of campers that flock to this location in the summer. Large pull-through's off the river are well spaced and well placed away from the more crowded tent sites. Very clean and well kept grounds. Camp store has most everything you need along with full floating tube rental shop. Just jump in the river and go: a free shuttle picks you up and brings you home. Will come back here again and again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here visiting friends who are building a home in the area and living in their motorhome in this park. In the summer it's a great place if you're interested in partying on the Guadelupe River with a family. They do not allow pets during the summer. It's not a place to stay if you're on a longer RV vacation. Due to being in a valley, regular TV is virtually non-existent, but you can get good satellite reception. Wi-Fi is decent. If we were coming to the area again, we wouldn't select any of the parks along the river. During the winter they cater to long termers, aka Winter-Texans. Of the parks in the area, it is probably the best of the lot. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The Lazy L&L is located on the scenic Gualaloupe River in New Braunfels, Texas. My wife and I stayed here primary to gain access to the river for fly fishing (excellent spot!!). Campground is very clean and well run. No CATV, however - and we were unable to pick up and stations with the antenna. Wi-Fi is excellent!! They do have a new Community Center where folks meet to play cards, watch TV, etc.. Downside to this campground is the bathhouse. It was in the 30's in the mornings and bathrooms here are not heated. Shower was nice and hot, but they are pay showers (token-operated). Please note the manager provided us tokens at no charge, so I presume this arrangement is more for the 'tubers' that frequent the area during the summer. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Lazy L&L and we will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with large spaces, tables and covered BBQ's at the sites. On this trip there were a lot of winter Texans, but the place was not full. The weather was unseasonably cold and wet so it was quiet and pretty empty during our stay. The facilities were immaculate. There is a small camp store at the entrance and the workers were very helpful with directions, etc. It's close to the town of Sattler for groceries. (2.5 miles) This park looks like it would be a good place to spend some time in the spring and fall. During the summer it gets pretty crazy with all the "toobers" going down the river. We would use this RV park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I chose this park for the proximity for fly fishing the Guadalupe River: you will not find a better spot. Very nice owners and staff who are genuine in making sure you enjoy the stay. The snowbirds in residence were friendly and helpful. Be Aware: the Garmin directions are incorrect. Ended up on a no-outlet road at 9:00pm, raining and no turn arounds. Rate was blended for extended stay and PA. The meeting and workout rooms were a plus. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was very spacious and the sites were very big and easy to get into. The park was clean and the staff was very friendly. They landscaping was nice and neat. This park is on the banks of a river that scores of people frequent in the summer to tube on, but not too many there in the fall. We would definitely stay here again. It was a great place for not much money. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent family owned and operated campground! Very reasonable winter rates! Clean and well maintained grounds. Located right on the beautiful, crystal clear Guadalupe river. Big rig friendly and free Wi-Fi! Laundry facilities right on site. Only about a 3 mile drive to access stores. We HIGHLY recommend this location to any RVer - short or long term! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great park for the off season time frame. We probably would not want to be here when it is crowded with tent campers who want to party on the river. The park is very clean and the staff is wonderful. Bathrooms are kept clean but are basic concrete block buildings with shower curtains on the bathroom stalls. Cell service is terrible, which is not the park's fault. Love the river and view of the hills. Good monthly rate starting in Oct. Would definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the second year in a row I have spent at this campground. The quality was consistent to last year. They patrol very well, keep the trash clean at the individual sites, and are pretty friendly. The downside is the dust, and the bathrooms. They try to keep them clean but its practically impossible considering the number of tent sites compared to number of toilets. It's an extra letdown since you have to pay to use the showers. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This campground exceeded my expectations!! I was a little apprehensive about driving my 30ft trailer up River Road, but I came down from the horseshoe/canyon lake side and was an easy pull. The campground itself had a nice 'feel' to it, but more important it seemed very well run. The Guadalupe can sometimes be quite a party place, but the L&L requires wrist bands to even be in the campground. I saw patrols at night, guards a the gate and felt VERY secure there. after 10:00 at night there were not parties, loud music etc. I'll definitely return if possible. Only thing is, I don't think they allow pets, so you might want to check that out if staying there. (ed. note: Lazy L&L website states that no pets are allowed during the summer months). We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice park. We stayed there a month. It is family owned and everyone was very helpful, including bringing mail to our motorhome. All facilities were nice and clean. Showers were a little forceful and they cost a dollar token for seven minutes. Easy access to the river by way of a walkway with rail. Tubing available with rapids. Fishing for trout was good. We will stay there several winter months. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The nicest private park on the Guadalupe river. Theres actually a camping area here as opposed to a field of RV's. Some of the spaces at the river are shaded and quite nice. This campground is not really that special except for the river access and they will even let you use your own "tubs" unlike other camps on the river. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Would have enjoyed it better if they had a pool. Also the road to get to their campground is narrow and very winding. Hard to see in the dark at night not any lights on it. Otherwise park was okay don't know if I'd go back again. They also don't allow pets for you pet people. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice, well kept campground. The bathrooms were a let down. Although it was obvious they were cleaned early in the day, use had left them in poor condition. Showers required tokens, but we were not informed of this at checkout. Desk was closed before we discovered this issue. Sights were spaced close together. Lots of dust and dirt with very little grass. Some of the pull through sites looked to be very nice with grass, but were off the river. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Back again in 2005...great place to winter on Guadalupe River. Wireless internet has been added. Understand pets are allowed in winter. Rainbow trout just released in river. It is very quiet here and steet lights do not shine into your coach! You can actually watch the heavens. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great family oriented campground on the beautiful Guadalupe River in New
Braunfels, TX. If winter texans are looking for a quiet, serene campground for the winter, this is it! We have been here since mid-Oct and love being close to the river. There is great trout fishing here as well. I cannot say enough about how beautiful and well kept this campground is and the winter rates are VERY reasonable! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have a 44' RV and it is a bit difficult to maneuver. It is not really designed for rig’s that large. It is mostly a tent camping place. It is very dusty. The sites are dirt and grass. The sites closer to the water have shade. The big field for tents does not. They have small cabins available for rent, but I never saw inside of them, and do not know the cost. For the RV, we paid $15/person/night. In addition to that, they charge for water and electricity, I think it is $5/night. We do not utilize the restrooms, but I know they have free showers, and sometimes there is a line on busy weekends. There is a bar on-site, and a grill on the weekends. They also have live bands outdoors at night on the weekends. It is a party atmosphere each time we have been here. You can buy ice on site, $3/bag. You can rent tubes ($15/per person, rent 3, get the 4th on free) here. They will shuttle you, or you can get in the water here and float to a pick-up point. You can sit in chairs or tubes/rafts in the water and not float if you choose to do so. They have a sand volleyball area. I do not recall seeing any other play areas for children. If there is a problem with unruly guests, you just go to the office and report it, and they will take care of it! We saw that first hand this weekend. They have a dog painted in their logo, floating in a tube, which is misleading because they do not allow pets. They do, however, have a resident cat. There are containers everywhere for you to recycle beer/soda cans. I believe a couple of the sites have fire pits. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is more a tent campers place. I have tent camped here many times and this was the first time I took my travel trailer here. It was very difficult to maneuver and park, luckily I had rented an additional spot for some friends that were tent camping. The road to the RV sites is one lane wide and like I said does not allow for easy parking. The showers are free and there is always a party atmosphere, lots of people cutting from the parking lot through our campsite to their camp site or the river. I have a long bed, quad cab truck with a bumper pull travel trailer. Others also had a difficult when it came time to pull out, one in a 5'er and the other in a large bus type RV. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have stayed here several years while attending Wursfest. Although it is very convenient, it does not suit us any more. When we first stayed here, they inquired about the age and condition or our trailer, but now it does not seem to matter how old or what condition a trailer is in. They now do not allow camp fires of ANY kind. Now they no longer allow kids to ride ANYTHING in the park: no bicycles, push scooters or anything. Our kids were riding scooters in the VACANT spot next to ours and the park host came over to rudely tell them to quit. On top of all of this, and the loud traffic noise, our group of four campers will not return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the umpteenth time we've stayed at River Ranch and again I'm impressed. River Ranch is by far the cleanest private RV park I've ever stayed it. Sure there is highway noise, but I'd rather hear the constant "thump thump" of cars than a train or loud partiers. It's almost inaudible over my AC. You just can't beat the location of RRV. It's on the Guadalupe River. We've floated home several times from the Comal. Plus it's about 1mile (walking distance or a $10 cab ride) from downtown New Braunfels. If you're looking for a place to have a beer party, you won't like it here. If you want a clean park for your family to use as a home base for anything in New Braunfels, you'll love it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our second time here. We like the park, though to back in a large trailer, you have to back on the 'blind side.' The lady who parked us was very good at directing and made it a lot easier. Once in, the sites are nice but a bit close. Highway noise was not a problem. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This Park is extremely clean, lighted and well kept. The location is unusual due to being right under a major Interstate highway. We did not find it to be a problem. Inside with the AC on, you could barely hear it. Outside, you do hear it. We were on the side away from the Interstate, actually under the Bus. 35. It was a little quieter. The big draw for us was the River. Our coach was about 15 feet from the River. Just beautiful looking out our front window. We parked facing in and ran our hook ups under the Coach. It was worth it. There are lots of big trees, ducks, turtles, squirrels and fish. Even the old bridge under Bus. 35 is beautiful. Our site was very large, all concrete with a grass picnic table area. The laundry and shower/restrooms looked real nice but I could not use them because of the highly perfumed cleaners that they used. I have never had that problem anywhere else. You could smell it before you opened the door. The location is perfect for doing all the touristy things and shopping. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We went to Dinner, a storm blew in. The Camp Hosts came during the storm and took down our awning. All of hosts were very nice. We came for 2 days and stayed a week. Our rate reflects Good Sam and a weekly rate. One day with no memberships is $52.50 for the great River spots. We would definitely return if there were River spots available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The comments about the highway noise are overstated. Never really noticed, but the A/C was running just about the whole time. Also, no noise problems from the public boat ramp next door, and we were on that side. If you will be in your trailer during the afternoon in the summer, PAY EXTRA FOR THE RIVERFRONT SITES, or you won't be in the shade until after 6pm. Nice park w/ level concrete pads. Restrooms exceptionally clean and well air conditioned. Only downside was no place for my daughter to ride her bike w/o being on the only access road. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We're back again at RRV. This is by far the cleanest RV park we've ever stayed in (and we've stayed in a few) with the easiest pull in and hook-ups. According to our New Braunfels cab driver RRV is the most family friendly park in the area and we agree. Location wise: it rocks. You can get a cab from the park to pretty much anywhere in town or Gruene for less than $15 and Corner Tubes will pick you up at the park for about that much. You can float either the Comal or the Guadalupe all the way back to the park. You just have to portage around a small dam. We usually float the Comal back to the park. It adds about an hour to your trip. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small park, in an odd location (almost directly under I-35. It's somewhat cramped, but we were able to get into our spot fairly easily. The staff was helpful, and the concrete sites are very nice. You can hear the highway noise outside, but inside with the AC on you can't hear it at all. The river is very nice, and accessible. The cable television and Wi-Fi worked great. We would definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Perfect except for the road noise. This is a very clean park with all paved and level sites running along the Guadalupe river. Laundry facilities are clean and not busy. The park is between 2 overpasses so traffic noise is a little annoying. Lots of shopping nearby and about 25 minutes from downtown San Antonio. Staff is very friendly and helpful. If you like fishing, this is a great place to check out. Park also has a boat ramp into river. Our site was right on the river. It's a difficult RV park to find because of the location, but worth the effort. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice campground: all sites are concrete and all roads are paved. Big grassy area to walk dogs right along the river. The laundry room is big for a campground this size (4 washers/4 dryers) and everything is neat and well-maintained. The only problem is the traffic noise from the I-35 bridge. We had to leave our fan on all night to cover the noise. Good location: probably would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean park with all paved and level sites running along the Guadalupe river. Laundry facilities are also very clean and not busy. The park is between 2 overpasses so traffic noise can get annoying. Lots of shopping nearby and about 25 minutes from downtown San Antonio. Staff is very friendly and helpful. If you like fishing, this is a great place to check out. Park also has a boat ramp into river. We camped here in a fifth wheel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 3 weeks. The rate was $28.00 a night for the weekly rate and with the Good Sam Member discount. The park was spotless. Each spot has concrete and is level. There is also a picnic table and nice sized grass area for each site. You can walk right down to the river to feed the geese and fish. There is no playground for kids, but there is a huge field with horseshoes and volleyball net that the kids can run around at. Park staff is very friendly. I would definitely stay here again as the park was not crowded so they did not put guests right next to each other. The sites are also huge and roomy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I was very impressed with this campground. For years we always drove past and wondered why anyone would want to camp under a highway. Well, we decided to try it out over Labor Day weekend. We had plans to stay at Garner State Park through Labor Day but we were getting tired of the crowd at the park and decided to leave early and head to New Braunfels. I called River Ranch to see if they had any sites and to my surprise they did. We arrived and were warmly greeted by the staff/owners. I asked jokingly if we could have their best site and they told me that it just became available. We got the corner waterfront site that had a beautiful view of the Guadalupe River and bridge. The water was no more than 10 feet from our trailer door. We couldn’t have asked for a better site. The park was immaculate. There was a park attendant driving around in a golf cart keeping all of the sites tidy. I was even impressed how he would wipe down each picnic table as people would leave their site. All of the sites were level and concrete and were in excellent shape. Each site had its own little patch of manicured grass with a picnic table. There really isn’t much shade unless you are in one of the water front sites. In the late afternoon, one of the bridges does offer shade for most of the park. The highway noise really didn’t bother us either. It’s a whole lot better than the sound of trains that rumble through other parts of town all day and night. Check out their website and look at the pictures of the park that way you know what to expect when you get there. One note of caution about this park, since it lies on the Guadalupe River, it is prone to flooding during heavy rains. Keep an eye on the weather during your stay. We didn’t watch the news in several days and had no idea about tropical storm Hermine which was barreling its way up to us. Luckily the park owners keep a close watch on weather and alerted us to the possibility of flooding along the river. We heeded their warning and moved our trailer to a site on higher ground. We headed back home on Tuesday just as the storm rolled in. We will definitely be back next season, hopefully with better weather. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a totally neat park in an unexpected location. Hidden under a freeway overpass on the bank of the Guadalupe River, the park makes great use of otherwise unusable land. Despite being under the interstate, the noise didn't bother us. All the sites are level concrete with room to park additional vehicles. Maneuvering with a big rig requires some experience or patience, but staff members escorted campers to their sites and assisted as ground-guides until campers were parked. All staff members were very friendly and accommodating. Bath houses were the cleanest I've ever seen. The park is pet-friendly and has a nice grassy area for dogs. Call ahead for park information and reservations as there are a ton of requirements that must be met before campers are authorized to use the park, i.e. age of rig, size and breed of pets, etc. Great park. We intend to plan a special trip in the future for more than just a night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very well maintained campsite with friendly and helpful staff. Laundry & restrooms have coded locks and are immaculately clean. We would not stay in the middle of the campground again because it was crowded. If we stay here again, it will be on a river site. Even though this park is close to the I-35 highway, we didn't mind the constant hum of traffic as much as the continual traffic coming and going into the camp site itself since sites are right on the driveway. Pets are allowed, but if more than one dog, the charge is $3.00 extra per day which seems excessive and I don't understand. There is a large riverside grassy area to walk dogs. Bottom line, this is a very nice clean RV park and is close to many stores, shopping malls, theater in beautiful New Braunfels. We would stay here again in a waterfront site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Have stayed here several times, the last one for seven months. Will return. Very friendly staff and a very clean campground. The only reason for not giving a perfect 10 is the road noise from the TWO Interstate highway bridges running down both sides of the campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here one night en route to south Texas. It is a handy RV park off I-35 but the interstate noise is prominent. The sites are very nice: newer utility posts, all slabs are concrete. Restrooms are nice but key-locked and we had to get a key from the manager after office hours. The directions were confusing and we missed any signs the first time. Nice river path nearby to walk pets. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small park right on the river and directly under I-35 the site are level, the staffs friendly, can't get any closer to the freeway to get back on. The directions to get there are a bit convoluted regardless of what books i used to get there but we finely found it, grounds are immaculate . The only reason I gave this park a 5 is because of the noise both cars and trains. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff is very friendly and seemed to care about the comfort of each individual. However, we were supposed to be in a deluxe site which was in the middle of the campground. These are not the best sites and should be standard and not deluxe. They are small sites for a 38ft trailer, the sites on the river (13 and 14) were much bigger and should have cost the most but were the cheapest and in the shade. We would stay here again, but not in the center of the campground. You do not need your golf cart in this campground, it is on the small side. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very modern campground with all concrete roomy sites. Close to river. Biggest negative was you are parked directly under I-35 and access roads. Noise was loud and constant. We stayed 2 nights because we made reservation by phone prior to arrival. Would look for a quieter campground if we come to New Braunfels again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wow! I haven't been to a park this clean before. The bath houses were spotless, they had a very nice clean laundry facility. The staff were very genuine, friendly, and knowledgable about the area. We had free cable tv with I know over 50 channels or so and free wi fi with great connection. The park is located right off the I 35 on the beautiful Guadalupe river. We highly reccomend anyone to check this one out. We made reservations to return during spring break next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Although we only spent one night here, we will come back and spend more time in this area. Our site was on the river, and very roomy and level. We made our reservation On-line, and found that there were other, less expensive, sites available when we got there. Next time we'll call for our reservation to see what is available at that time. Another very minor complaint would be the directions on both their Website and in the directories. Upon exiting the park, we decided that there is an easier way into the park for our next visit. However, as I said earlier, we will be back for a longer stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the perfect place to spend a night or two. We saw the sign on HWY I35 traveling to Austin, it was late and we were tired of driving, we pulled up and were greeted warmly by the on site manager. He escorted us to a site, helped with the hook ups, and said we can handle the paper work in the morning. This is a beautiful clean state of the art resort with all sites 20/30/50 amp full hookups, paved roads, cement pads, and each site has its own patio and picnic table. The bath houses were spotless, and we had free WiFi and over 70 cable TV channels. We definitely will be back in the summer to enjoy the beautiful river the resort sit on. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We chose RRV simply because they were the only park in New Braunfels that had any vacancy for our weekend and allowed pets, plus they still have reasonable prices. Nightly prices are from $30 for a “standard” site to $45 for a “deluxe river view”. The park also has weekly rates. All rates are for 2 persons, up to 2 pets, and 1 veh. All sites are concrete with 20/30/50 amp, water, sewer, cable and WIFI included. I hear the park was obliterated by the floods of 2004 so everything is very new. The staff also indicated that they just opened in Oct (2007). Be prepared that the Guadalupe CAN flood like any river. This park is right on the river. When you check in you will have to sign a waiver allowing them to move your rig if you’re not there and a flood is coming. River Ranch is located along the Guadalupe River underneath Interstate 35 and Hwy 81 bridges. All sites are concrete although we found ours was a little off level side to side. My wife didn’t have a problem with it but I’m a bit obsessive with level. Bring your blocks or levelers. There are only about 6 pull through sites. All have a picnic table and bit of grass. The park has a boat ramp, restrooms and laundry facilities and a boat ramp. What I liked: The staff are friendly and helpful. They guide you to, and assist with backing in to your site. I had some problems getting on the WIFI and even though the office was closed the gentleman who answered came by to help. The river access is awesome even if you are not in a river front sight. You could theoretically tube down the Comal or Guadalupe right to the park, but I doubt many do! I also liked that there are “work-campers” who live in the park are accessible and patrol the park to make sure everything is OK. What I didn’t like: The biggest drawback to this park is the highway noise from I-35. Our trailer has tent ends and it didn’t bother us too much but if you’re looking for that “camping” feel you won’t get it at RRV. RRV also borders a city park & public boat ramp. There is a short fence partially separating RRV from this park. I gather that RRV tried to put up a “flood friendly” fence, but I really didn’t feel very secure and would have appreciated a taller fence that went all the way up to the road. Overall: RRV is a nice friendly new park with great great river access. We spent a lot of time swimming and tubing in the river right next to our trailer. Their prices and location are great! However the park is under the highway and next to a city boat ramp. If you are looking for a “destination” RRV is not for you. If you are looking for a great place to put your RV while in New Braunfels this is a decent place to stop. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Campground is closed, evidently to prior flooding. Website was up, but phone was disconnected and campground was closed. It must have happened in 11/2004 from what I could find out about news accounts. . .felt that they could have noted that on the website instead of letting it look like they were open and causing us to divert to them and then have to turn around and leave. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This nice park is on the Guadalupe River and has access for tubing, small watercraft, etc. Nice sites with good electric (during the summer heat, this was important.) We would stay there again! It's a nice location to explore New Braunfels, Gruene ("Green"), and the San Antonio area from. DO watch for the entrance, though...it's the light that's before (heading south) or after (heading north) the river from the Business 35 road. No problem for Big Rigs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first time camping along the Guadelupe River. In this park, most of the sites are right on the river - terrific view! Most of the sites have shade and are level. The staff are friendly. For kids, there is not much to do at this park other than float in the river, however, Canyon Lake is close and San Antonio and some state parks are less than an hour away. There is also a camp store, which came in handy. The sites are not too close together, but most of the even numbered sites do not have the electric/water hook-ups on the right side. This means you need an extension cord for power and another hose - and you have these hoses/cords all over the campsite. Luckily, we were able to borrow one from the office, since we didn't have any. We stayed over Labor Day weekend, and there were a lot of families, but also people who really wanted to party (loud music until late). Guess this is to be expected on a holiday weekend. There are no full hook-ups and only one dump station, so make sure you leave early on the day you head out. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have been camping on the Guadalupe River for 30 years and have camped here for the past 13. We wanted a more family oriented campground when our kids began bringing our grand kids camping. We love this campground. It is the best location on the river. Almost half the sites are directly on the river and the rest are right across the camp road from it. From one end to the other the camp has rapids, slower deep water, and a wonderful natural gravel beach area for family fun with small children. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful beyond what should be expected. The camp is kept clean and the bathrooms are cleaned at least twice daily. Loud, rowdy campers are warned, then sent packing if they can not maintain a decent manner and the quiet time of 10 p.m. is enforced. There is a small store right next door and also an outfitter so all the basics are in walking distance. We would not stay anywhere else, nor would our kids and all the many friends who have camped with us over the years. They have a good number of tent sites with electricity and the bulk of the sites have both water and electricity. Dogs under 15 pounds are allowed in campers but no dogs are allowed in tents. The only negative is that they have such a steady clientele it is hard to get a weekend reservation during the summer. Fourth generations of families are still camping here. They must be doing something right. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The people at River Road Camp were very nice and everything was very clean. They had many sites right on the river. We had a GREAT experience at this campground. I would highly recommend staying there. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were on the road and about 45 minutes away. I called in to see if they had any pull through available. They asked if we were members of coast to coast. We are not. Apparently you need to be a member of this in order to camp here. Too bad, as it did not leave us much time to find other RV places and read reviews. I gave it a rating of 5 because we did not see the restricted access anywhere We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was beautiful with nice big sites. Loved watching the deer come in every night. The pools looked incredible but are not heated, so the water was to cold to get in. The bathroom has been newly renovated but needed to be cleaned a little more often. We enjoyed our stay and would love to go again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice park. We stayed 5 nights. The sites are large and flat. We saw deer in the park every night. This RV park is connected to a time share resort so all amenities are shared. Nice! Our son and dau-in-law came for a weekend and got a cabin. Very nice! One downfall is that there is no cable and no TV reception on antenna. Thankful for my books and my husband's DVD's. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The Summit is a very clean and well organized RV resort on the banks of the Guadalupe River with tubing and all other water sports. It is a short drive from Canyon Lake which has all the swimming and boating amenities you could want. Friendly staff and security personnel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great RV park. If it hadn't been pouring, it would have been even better, but you can't fault the park for that! We stayed for three nights and saw 4-5 deer every day. The site we were in was moderately level. Major problem we had was the poor cell phone reception. Three days without the ability to make phone calls in the RV was tiring, but if you simply want to relax, you can't do much better than this campground. We would definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a fantastic place to come and relax. We were here for 9 days. It was very quiet with only 9 rigs. We enjoyed the company of at least 6-8 deer every night. This small valley is splendid. Satellite TV reception was great, and our own broadband for the computer worked just great. We loved the pool and hot tub. Ya'll come down and camp here soon. It's one of the best resorts we've ever been in. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Definitely a campground that understands "family friendly". Our kids Love Love Love this campground. We stayed last year over a long weekend with some friends. Gotta say they certainly know how to entertain the kids and kept them busy all day with their crafts, game room and laser tag at night. Don't despair mom and dad! These extras are very affordable and considering we didn't have to drive somewhere else to find entertainment was a bonus. We were able to veg by the pool while the kids entertained themselves and then came back together in the evening for a hearty dinner and roasted marshmallows. The only downside was that we had difficulty with the first site they tried to put us in. The positioning of the trees would not allow us to extend our slide, no matter how we maneuvered. They were very accommodating when we asked to be moved - even though we had to pay a bit more for a "premium" site. Laundry room and bathrooms were kept very clean, and the managers were very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I entered $10 here because we have a membership with Coast to Coast. This resort was great! We were here for 5 days. There was tons of things to do. Deer in our campsite every day and night. They have 4 pools here. The spots were gravel but pretty level and long enough to accommodate our 40' 5th wheel. The sites were roomy and the campground was easy to maneuver our rig in. Bathhouses (showers, toilets, etc.) were very clean. The staff was extremely friendly including informing us on places to eat, things to do in the area, etc. Had 24hr security also. You can now get Wi-Fi here, however you have to go to the pool area to get it. Also, this place being in the Hill Country it drops periodically. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We actually camped here quite a number of years ago but was not able to check a date earlier than 2009. We were so disappointed when we learned that the actual campsites were across the road from the resort, basically in a big gully surrounded by cliffs. Not pretty at all. Basic site with water and electric. We did have access to the resort across the road and there was a big pool, shuffleboard, game room, etc. But river access was extremely difficult. You had to make your way down an extremely steep path from a deck built out over the water. I did not want to try it. It was okay if you want to spend all your time in the resort and some people would, but not for us. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a Coast to Coast rate. Friendly staff. Neat and clean. 50 sites are full hook up. Many sites not level. A lot of amenities. No wi-fi, no cable. Sites do need more gravel. Nice and quiet. In a steep valley, TV reception poor. Verizon works just "ok". Verizon air card worked well. Woodall rates this a 5 "w". The condos and cabins may be a 5 "w", but we are rating the RV park. Maybe if we had a level paved site with wi-fi and cable we would rate this higher. Close to Canyon Lake. Two pools and two hot tubs. A very nice area to visit. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a Coast to Coast resort. It is a great Texas Hill Country RV Park. Have stayed here 2 times and the owners were very helpful. Only down side Dirt/gravel pads need to be reworked and leveled. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a Coast to Coast private park. We are new to C2C and each time we stay at a park it is a poke in a pig since there are no reviews. This park is nestled in the hill country of Texas and is quite nice. The bathhouses are a little older and Wi-Fi is not readily available, that's why we rated the park an 8. Wi-Fi is available if you take your computer up to the office, but, there is nowhere in the office/clubhouse to sit down and use it. You'll have to sit in your vehicle. Park has two swimming pools and is located on the pristine Guadalupe River. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
