We stayed in a Premium Pull Thru site. Surface type was gravel; site was long and mostly level; lot spacing was good with great shade from the summer sun. (Note: the red carpet pull-thru sites have little to no shade.) The sites in this area have picnic tables, charcoal grill and fire ring. The cable TV service was good with 30'ish channels. The road in our area of the park was a bit tight for a big rig but not impossible to navigate. Staff was very friendly. Facilities were clean and well maintained. Pool, water pad and play ground areas were clean and well maintained; pool was open from 9 am to 9 pm. Great place for the kiddies - there were continuous actives going on throughout the day and into the evening. The adults behaved themselves with no drunk or foul mouth issues around the kids. Great place to stay for tubing the Guadalupe River - it is approx 1 mile from the Horseshoe. Park has free shuttle service for tubers. My only complaint is that the "Park Rangers" were not very knowledgeable in the local pass time of tubing the Guadalupe River. I have seen reviews with complaints about the cost - this is a "resort" not a camp ground to pull into for a couple of days - I like others do not like to spend money but felt it is well worth it - my 9-year old granddaughter did not want to leave; she said it was the best weekend of her life. We WILL stay here again! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Hill Country in a Motorhome.
Tube the Guadalupe River while there - it is a blast!!! Go with a company that does not use black tubes - they get REALLY HOT!!! We have used several different tubing companies (and they all were good & I would use again), but the one that stands out as the best in my opinion is Whitewater Sports. Have fun and be safe!

Very nice state park adjacent to Lake Raven. Camped there during Labor Day weekend. This was our second visit to this park. We camped in the Prairie Branch Camping Area adjacent to a shelter. Our site was very spacious, shaded, mostly level, directly adjacent to the lake; we camped in a 40ft motorhome w/ vehicle. Our site had a fire pit, picnic table and large screened in room. We previously camped in the Raven Hill Camping Area (full hook-ups) but most of the sites in the area are NOT level; will not stay in that section again. Park Rangers were VERY friendly and courteous. There is a small "beach" area, miles of great hiking/mountain bike riding, a Nature Center and horseback riding (supplied via on-site vendor). This park is part of a National Forest and can be somewhat difficult to navigate in a larger motorhome. We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Motorhome.

Great stay... Gulf of Mexico is only a short walk from sites... Our site was very close to a brand-new shower facility; one of the nicest & cleanest we have ever visited! Tested power prior to hooking-up; power clean and stable. Ran all air conditioners and electrical systems with no problems. There is a dump station as you exit the park on the north side of the road. Only drawback is the way sites are aligned with your neighbor's fire pit/grill area; the driver's side rear of our rig was about 5 feet from their fire pit. Park was very clean. Great walking/hiking paths on bay side of park. We camped at Galveston Island State Park in a Motorhome.
Galveston is a great place to visit; most notably is the newly re-constructed Pleasure Pier. We had ample activities at the park to keep us occupied; we did not go into town.
