We traveled to Gonzales to see some properties in town and selected Independence Park due to its proximity to the properties.


Apparently, this City owner and operated RV park is mainly used by pipeline workers and their families. OK, no big deal... or so I would’ve assumed before staying here.

After pulling into our site and getting set up, I set to work and picked up 3 bags of trash, pulled the rotten corn on the cobs out of the BBQ grill and did my best to pick the broken glass out of the gravel from smashed beer bottles. There is a slope down to a lower level embankment along the river Which was used as a dumping ground in addition to the campsite areas.

Kids bikes, old camp chairs, toys, trash strewn everywhere. Dogs allowed to run free to harass other campers, one of which was a probably sweet boy fully intact pit bull who was forced to spend his days locked in a crate barely bigger than his is in 100+ degree heat and high humidity. And he would start barking as soon as his owners left for work at about 6:15 and continue until he dozed off around 9 or 10am.

I reported all of this to the office (which is the City Golf Course office) and they did what they could, but they are understaffed and overworked just caring for the golf course.

No WiFi, poor T-Mobile voice quality (dropped and garbled calls), decent Verizon voice quality.

Oh, also I would not recommend for rigs over 33 ft due to the tight turn around (required some back and forth shimmying to get around the small loop).

I don't think it quite got that hot, but it's triple digits here. Shiner has commercials about how hot it is, where they admit their beer will not leave you instantly covered in a snow storm.

Anyway, it was toasty.

There's a nice, green river flowing behind the campground, and a really nice playground in the picnic area, which isn't really within walking distance. Should you be interested in faking the funk on a nasty dunk, you could do that at the b-ball court. Sadly, we own no b-ball and of course, I've taught my children that you never fake the funk...

There's golf, if you do that. A lot of people seem to be interested in such a pursuit.

Next-a-mundo? The sites themselves? Well they come with the shade, so that's nice, and no shortage of breeze was available for the hotter parts of the day. We grilled burgers and shot one another with dart guns to pass the time when it was hotter. I wish the gas station would have had junky $.99 water guns instead of the dart guns, so at least when my kids started crying about how their guns broke we'd be all covered in water.

Bring a raft or a tube, or figure out why the pool isn't open on Memorial Day weekend...that might help!

Gonzales itself is an okay small Texas town, the usual variety (which I do enjoy), of empty store fronts, a couple of restaurants to sample (from shady looking Mexican biker joints to upscale newer establishments seeing if they can compete), and antique stores. The old jail is a fun enough tour.
