“Bluff camping, beautiful views.”

Reviewed Oct 25, 2017

Overall Rating

Camped 10/17/17. We got lucky - it was not windy during our stay. However, we arrived at sunset, and the mosquitoes were pretty bad, but after dark by the campfire, they didn't bother us. We were treated to an absolutely beautiful sunset. The views are gorgeous! Our site was level, and as noted, you park on the road and the co... more

“Excellent for the night”

Reviewed Oct 18, 2017

Overall Rating

Stopped here in our way East. The sunset overlooking the lake (Reservoir) was beautiful. It was a little difficult to find but worth it. The town left a little bit to be desired. As others have said it’s a bit windy. We were there in September. There is a nearby town with a good Walmart and gas

“This place is GORGEOUS, but the WIND IS REAL.”

Reviewed Oct 13, 2017

Overall Rating

Here's the thing -- this place is GORGEOUS. The views are great, the spots are spacious, the grounds are clean. The fresh water and dump are conveniently located at the entrance to the campground. Each spot has a garbage can, picnic area, and shade structure. It's quiet at night. ....BUT THE WIND IS INTENSE. The whole campground ... more

“One of those "this can't be real" spots; strange experience with locals though...”

Reviewed Oct 12, 2017

The NPS calls this place an oasis on the high plains... and they aren't kidding. After endless cattle ranches and oil fields through Texas, this place really is an awesome respite. The photos speak for themselves, so I'll just add my $0.02 from our experience. It's windy. Very windy. Probably won't be getting out your awnings or can... more

“Great site, bad locals. ”

With the good comes the creepy. We stopped here after passing through Amarillo. The breeze made the June Texas heat bearable! Sites, while small and not private, are free and offer permanent pavilions (great for hammocks), charcoal grills, picnic tables and fire rings. We stayed in June 2017 and almost all the sites were full. Grea... more

“Great overnight spot-- fantastic view & FREE!”

Reviewed Jun 29, 2016

Overall Rating

First the downsides-- this is called a campground, but it's really more of a picnic area. As such, the sites are nothing more than slightly wider pullouts along the road, and sized more for cars than big RVs. Most sites are horribly unlevel, and only a few spots will work for longer RVs. None are really appropriate for wide rigs with... more

Ok, we really loved it here. Fabulous views. Quiet. Nice sites with picnic tables and shelters, grills, and fire rings. The bathhouse renovations are all done, so there are flush toilets and hot showers. The shower heads are a bit harsh but, hey, I'm not complaining. The restrooms are kept clean. There is potable water in a pump out... more

Lake Meredith is this stunning oasis in the middle of absolutely nowhere - you don't expect it, amidst the dry grasses and dust and tumbleweeds and Texas back roads...but then you arrive and are just completely blown away at the blue depths, the jaw-dropping sunsets against the red and brown cliffsides, the grandiosity is...well, it wa... more
