This is a former KOA campground. New owners are slowly making improvements. Bathrooms were clean but in the process of being remodeled when we were there. Sites are level and all were pull through sites. As one reviewer commented they are a bit short so if you are pulling a vehicle you may need to disconnect. We have a 36' motorhome and pull a car and found that to be the case. Park was clean, quiet and a good choice for overnight. There is a large 24/hr. Travel Plaza about 1 mile from the park where you can get fuel and other supplies. We paid $35/night, which included Good Sams discount. This was the posted rate so I assume rates have been raised for the season compared to the rates listed by previous reviewers. We would stay here again when passing through.
This is an adequate park if you are just passing through. It is easy to access from I-40 and located off old Rt. 66, which runs parallel to the Interstate. Some traffic noise but not to bad. Park has pull-through gravel sites and interior dirt roads with no shade. The park facilities are old and in need of repairs and upgrading. The bathrooms and laundry look to be 50 years old and were dirty. Old paneling, cobwebs, poor lighting, no latches on the stalls, no paper towels and no hand soap. There is a swimming pool but it was not open. Little to see and do in the area though Shamrock does have some surviving Route 66 buildings as well as Vern's Steakhouse which is a good meal if you are up for a steak.
The campground is easily accessed from I-20 which is about 1/2 mile away so very little traffic noise. The sites are level and easy pull-through. Interior roads are dirt, and sites are gravel. Small trees, so little shade. All sites are 50 amp. There was no cable TV when we were here, though the web site offers this as an amenity. Park is spartan with a small shower house and laundry. As one of the previous reviews noted the facilities need to be cleaned daily, which had not been done when we were here. The chained dogs were also still present. Walmart, fuel, and restaurants are about 6 miles west. We would stay here again but only as an overnight when passing through.
We camped here in a motorhome. The rate reflects a monthly rate of $400 (50 Amp site). Electric is included in that price, so that is a plus. The campground does have a lot of monthly campers who are mostly construction workers working in the oil business south of town. They are quiet, leave early and return late so the park is pretty deserted during the day. We had no problems with noise or traffic. The park speed limit is 5 mph, which is what you find in most parks. We were told about it at check-in but otherwise not hassled about it. The reason they pay attention to the speed, (besides safety) is that all the interior roads are dirt/gravel and dust is an issue. WiFi worked great. TV antenna will get you about 12 local stations. Showers and restrooms were cleaned daily. Owners live on-site and stay on top of maintenance. Would recommend the park and stay again. The only drawback is there is very little in Luling other than some famous BBQ restaurants so you end up going to San Marcos, Austin and San Antonio to shop and find entertainment.
Park has beautiful view of lake with waterfront sites available. Sites were level with concrete pads. Most of the interior roads are paved. Staff was friendly and helpful. Restrooms were clean and well maintained. Some previous reviews have mentioned ants. Ants are common in this part of Texas and while we did not have a problem we've learned to carry some spray and ant granules just in case, though most park managers will treat your site if you bring the issue to their attention. We would definitely stay here again.
Rate is for monthly plus the cost of electric. There are not many choices in this area and this is the best of the bunch. Close to I-95. Some complain about traffic noise but since we stayed for a month they put us in the back of the park so noise was not a problem. Park is clean, well maintained and has free, recently upgraded cable TV. Restrooms and facilities were well maintained and any issues were dealt with promptly by the friendly staff. We will stay again.
Nice well run campground. Staff was friendly and helpful. Facilities are well maintained. Bathrooms were clean. Campground is close to the Interstate but road noise was not a problem as far as we were concerned. The rate is the daily rate less the Good Sam's Discount.
We have been using RV Park Reviews for several years and have never felt misled by any of the reviews until now. We travel in a 36' rig with a tow vehicle. The campground straddles two hills and is bisected by a small creek. The grade is steep going down and up. They have about 3 pull through sites, but you will need to disconnect your tow vehicle before pulling in to the campground. Getting out of the space required pulling forward and backing up several times to negotiate the nearly 180 degree turn. The bathrooms are located in a damp and dark basement under the main office. The hallway is lit by a single light bulb. The door entering the bathroom area is black from dirty hands and appears to have never been cleaned. The fixtures are at least 30 years old and the plywood partitions have rotted at the bottom in spite of numerous coats of paint. There are a large number of full-time residents some with metal pole buildings to cover their trailers, others with a lot of junk on their sites and trailers that look like they have been in the woods for years. The campground is in a rural setting and is at least 15 miles from the nearest shopping. We originally reserved this for 3 days but left after 1 day.
As the previous reviewer indicated this is a small park under new ownership. They have recently added 3 more sites bringing the total to 23. All the sites are back-in. We have a 36' motorhome and had no difficulty getting in or out. Most of the park occupants are monthly (several we met were contract workers in the area). There appeared to be no room for overnight visitors so, if you plan to stay overnight I would suggest you call ahead to check on availability. Most sites have concrete pads and are wide. The rate quoted for this review is for a month plus electric. The park has no amenities other than a small laundry and bathrooms. These were never cleaned until we finally complained. Lake Conroe and a marina are directly across the highway (TX-105). Boat rentals are available at the marina so if water sports are your interest you don't have to travel far. Plenty of shopping in the area with easy access to I-45. We would stay here again.
This is a pleasant campground in a rural setting surrounded by woods and rolling hills. The sites were adequate and level enough for our RV. The bathrooms and showers were clean and adequately stocked. The biggest negative was the lack of maintenance to the buildings and grounds which are clearly in need of work. Siding was rotting on the main office as well as the bathhouse and pavilion. Bushes and hedges were in need of a trim. We were here in the fall and leaf debris had not been removed making for tripping hazards if you walked in any of the grassy areas. I nearly fell in a fire pit that was completely covered by leaves. We stayed for a week and were quoted a weekly rate of $180 but it turned out to be $194 because of TN taxes. The owners are friendly but had to be hunted down when we arrived (mid-afternoon) as they were out walking the dogs. We would stay here again but only for day or two.
While we have been Escapees members for several years, this was our first stay at this park. Since this is the national headquarters we were expecting a first rate facility, which is not what we found. Everyone was helpful but the park is definitely in need of some serious maintenance and a face lift. We did not have any electrical problems as others have mentioned but did note the showers and restrooms were not particularly clean though passable. Livingston is a small rural town and has very little to offer other than a few restaurants and the usual Walmart shopping center.
This is a COE campground that is reasonably well maintained. It is definitely not for someone passing through as it is about 20 miles from the Interstate. Eight miles of that is through traffic and then another 12 miles up a winding mountain road where your speed in some areas won't exceed 35 mph. The views of the lake are delightful and I was told by the local fishermen that the fishing is great. The camp hosts were helpful and assisted us in locating a 50 amp site since the information on the COE web site regarding electric and the size units that can be accommodated is for the most part incorrect. The area was quiet and serene and is definitely a place to be recommended for a stay of several days to a week. The biggest negative was the condition of the bathrooms and showers. They were dirty and every stall had spider webs and insects. It did not look as if they had been cleaned in several weeks. We would consider it again, but only for a longer visit. I would also suggest calling the camp host ahead of time with your requirements and directions as your GPS can mislead you (at least ours tried to).
I would definitely stay here again when passing through. The campground is well laid out with easy pull through access. Staff was top notch with a personal escort to our site. The bathroom facilities were immaculate and the campground itself was very well maintained. As one of the other reviewers commented, there is no shade so this would probably be a little hot in the summer if you were staying for the day. The campground is about a 1/2 mile from a Flying J/Denny's, which makes it convenient to refuel when coming or leaving. The only negative we noted is that you do get I-30 traffic noise.
This is a quaint, older campground with adequate hookups and enough room for our motor home and tow vehicle. The campground is away from the highway and so free of traffic noise. It is a rural setting and surrounded by rolling hills and farms. The owners live on site and were very helpful. I would have given it a higher rating, but the bathrooms were in poor shape. The slab floor is cracked resulting in gaps between the shower pan and the slab. Bugs were noted, so I did not even attempt a shower.
This campground appears to be an old KOA facility. The campground was acquired by new owners 2 years ago and they appear to be working hard to make improvements. The campground is near enough to I90 to be "easy on" and "easy out" but far enough away to not have the road noise be a problem. A big plus is the mature hardwood trees that provide plenty of shade in the summer and give the feel of being out in the woods. The campground has interior gravel roads that are level along with pull through sites for big rigs. The only drawbacks we noted were the dated pool (cracked concrete apron) and bathrooms, which were dimly lit and are not handicap accessible.
We stayed here in a motorhome. Good basic campground mainly set up for the convenience of Cabelas' customers. Most sites have small trees designed for landscaping so they did not offer much shade. The sites are, gravel, level and well maintained. Staff was friendly. The only negative we noted were the showers and men's restroom, which both needed cleaning and maintenance attention.
