“Register at the Municipal Golf Course Before Parking - Great for One Night!”

Reviewed Oct 02, 2018

Overall Rating

Once we arrived at the campground I remembered I had forgotten to stop at the municipal golf course to check in. It was not far from the campground, but it's a good thing we didn't get set up first - it is not within walking distance.

The golf course has a suspension bridge near the clubhouse that looks nice from far away but on closer inspection you can't walk across it, although I'm sure in the past you would have been able to. The staff at the golf course are so nice and friendly.

Once we drove back to the campground we couldn't figure out where to park - the sites are somewhat haphazard - just find one you like and hook up (water and electric only). This is fire ant season so ants were everywhere - be sure to bring some insect repellent because mosquitos were also flying around. Most sites are fairly level and pull-through.

We did not find the dump station but were told it was near the restrooms near the entrance. We also did not find the lake - there are no views of the lake from the campground as far as we could tell. We did get out and walk around a bit and saw an amphitheater that was very run-down.

The location itself could use some work but I'm sure being a municipal facility, funds are tight. The price at $15 is about what I would expect to pay for a location like this.

There are no restaurants nearby because the location is pretty remote. Bring food to prepare with you.

We ran our fan all night because it was a little warm making it difficult to determine the noise level. The campground is located close to the road.

“Strange campground, but has electricity for $15”

Reviewed Mar 11, 2018

Overall Rating

Sort of a strange campground, but with W/E sites for $15/night, it was worth a stay just to run the electric heater and the furnace on a windy, very cold February night. And the cottonwood and oak trees around the edges of the campground helped reduce the constant north wind. The sites were fairly widely spaced, but each power post/faucet had two sides--one on gravel and one on grass/weeds. We picked the grass side of our site because it was a little more level, but we could still put the truck on the downhill side because we weren't unhooking the trailer. This would probably be a great park for fall or spring camping with its two campgrounds, a lake for fishing and boating, a marina, a golf course, and a general store. There was some noise from the nearby highway and very few OTA TV stations. But for us, it just worked well as a brief stop on a long, cold Texas plains night.
