Overall Rating

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.
