We stayed three nights in a travel trailer (site 91). We had good shade from an old pecan tree which was welcome in the afternoons since temps were in the low 90s with high humidity. The sites are all within walking distance of the San Marcos river, which is shallow enough to wade or bring a folding chair and enjoy the cool water. Amenities are great with a large outdoor pavilion, nice club house, restrooms, shower facilities, and laundry. The only downside for us was the lack of T-mobile service, but that isn’t the camp’s fault. It is a beautiful park, and yes, the sites are close together, but there is still plenty of room for outdoor life. - Jbkerr

First of all the parks name is Leisure Resorts, the place is not a resort at all. I was a workamper from May 2019 until late July 2019. The park is nice yes as the main attraction is the San Marcos river. The park sold from private ownership in early June 2019 to some folks out of California, nuff said. The "transition" period was a horrible experience. Most of the real working staff was very friendly and did their jobs, but then there were the slackers. Would I go there as an RV'er no way. Pets are not allowed on the river at all. Pets are only welcome if you are in an RV. - JARanch226

This park has the potential to be great. The problem is with their insistence to cram people, RVs, and vehicles on every inch of space they have and the never ending revolving door day use that the park allows. They allow way too many people and cars into the park on the weekends, I know this is a huge cash cow for them, but it is beyond too-crowded. People and cars everywhere. And they are obviously not re-investing the abundance of day fees on fixing up and taking care of the park. The roads in and about the property are in horrible shape. The bath houses are deplorable...of course they are used by a thousand day people on busy days. The RV pedestals are a joke, the picnic tables are dilapidated, and the sites are so close to each other in some cases it is difficult to get full size RVs in and out, or awnings deployed. It rained several days during our trip, so we had to deal with mud puddles, muddy ruts and huge pot holes filled with water that did not drain, the entire time we were there, and there was a definite stench about the entire RV area. The tent-only camping area apparently has no limits either. At the area below my RV site, what appeared to be 3 tent sites, I counted 45 people, 2 dogs that barked constantly, and 9 vehicles.
This park is also nit-picky with their pricing. They charge for everything, extra kids, extra cars, showers, $14 per day per person to get shuttled one mile to the bridge, etc.
All that being said, the facility is filled with beautiful scenery and incredible access to the San Marcos River. The staff is very helpful, and friendly, and the full hookup sites in the premium area have level concrete RV pads. There is a nice pool that the kids enjoy, and they have a small store with some essentials and ice.
Although we still enjoy coming to this park and the river environment, the perfect time to use this facility would be Sunday night through Thursday night, and be on your way Friday AM before the weekend madness. - Tcamper

We stayed there a few months while we were on a job. Rate is based on monthly. This a small park that is great for workers or anyone that doesn't need all the extras that the resorts offer. It is a clean park and the owners are on site. We would stay again. - BJ&ME

We camped here with reservations made 187 days prior to arriving. Our site in the FHU loop, fairway View, had a very nice view of the State Park 9-hole golf course, which was barely used. Quick check-in by Park Rangers upon arrival at 3pm Friday. Very quiet campground during Texas Spring Break with a bit of highway noise and occasional train whistle. The metal pergola over the site picnic table was a nice feature. Each site had a BBQ smoker. Saw wild turkeys and deer. Sites in this loop require side-to-side leveling. Sites are close together in this FHU loop with no vegetation (only grass) to provide privacy. Restroom/shower clean, but only one shower stall (one for men and one for women). Numerous attempts to connect to Park's complimentary WiFi was unsuccessful. No firewood for sale in the Park. Unless you are a golfer, this is a good Park to kick-back and relax, read a book. Trails are very short. Check with Park HQs to get latest on Ranger-led activities. Star gazing was scheduled for Saturday eve, but cloudy conditions caused it to cancel. - napunani

This park is just outside of town, close to eating and shopping. Only problem I had was with no Verizon service at site 15 which was down near the creek. This site required two inches of levelling. The wagon wheel sites might have been a better option. Has a 9 hole golf course and a swimming pool. - Texas Jim

Small park. Best sites are 1-10 as they have full hook-ups and are level, but they are in a close circle. Sites 11-20 have water and electric and are now paved, but they all slant toward the parallel creek. Many of the 11-20 sites are pull through - meaning the RV leans from one side to the other downhill toward the creek. Verizon yielded only 1 bar. Free wifi only so-so. - SunStar203

They do not allow children, which for the majority of people means they don't want you. They are almost always full, because of their cheap monthly price (which is why I listed 10 a night). They have no bathrooms, no showers, no laundry, and very short inconvenient office hours. They have no website, which is weird in 2015, so good luck getting their number. - Swift_Strongarm

When we came to this part of Texas for a job. This was a very reasonable place. Good place for workers that have self contained RV's since they don't have restrooms or showers. Very nice people and next door to the Three Dudes Winery. Less than 2 miles outside of town. The rate I gave was monthly and we would stay again. - BJ&ME

One of the nicest RV parks we have stayed in. Camping under a pecan grove gave us a much needed break from the Texas sun. The river is awesome and the folks in the office are very friendly and helpful. We stayed in site #226. Couldnt be better. - newmarboy

Initially made a reservation for 2 nights but we ended up staying an extra night. They were very accommodating. Park is on the river and they have huge shade trees that cover most of the spaces! Will definitely stay here again!!! Walmart and tube rental near by. - Jay Carr

Worst place ever, Owner & Manager are not friendly, beware. Electric has bad issues due to River flooding campground causing electricity problems. - 06Fatboy

Our pull through spot was long and thin. Ground next to the gravel was muddy. View for satellites was good. This park has lots of on-site activities, including a stocked fishing pond, a short walk to the river, and next-door neighbors with friendly goats and other animals. For us, the best experience was eating at an in-town BBQ restaurant inside City Market, in business since 1954. For smoked products, customers enter the smoking room to order their food. The ribs were delicious. Another eatery, Luling BBQ, is said to be as good. It's a couple of blocks away on the same street, Main. - Mtmoi

The people are nice and the campground is clean, price a little high for overnight stay. However this is not big rig friendly. Sites are long enough but very tight to get in and out of. - Esnewton

Clean, quiet park. Friendly staff (if you need something, I'm "-" and this is my phone number). Park had a gated entrance. - Dave from Indy

Clean park but watch out for the extra charges, I did not know there was a deposit expected until I was already unpacked, and I did not know there was a 3% charge passed onto me for using a debit card; he prefers cash. The Wi-Fi only worked sometimes when I was there, but never fear, there is a McDonald's nearby. You could not walk 2 feet without getting stickers on your shoes, pants, or if you had flip flops that was dangerous walking across the grass. I didn't like the "find out as you go" rules, I never saw that rule about the 3% fee to use a debit card until I used one. I think this owner is new at the park thing and is not user friendly. So read all the rules before you check out, Oh and I never saw any creek water etc. while I was camped there. - tizwhizkid

DO NOT CAMP HERE. We made a reservation several weeks in advance and arrived at 1 pm only to find the office closed with at least a dozen different signs on the front door but no reservation information or any information whatsoever. We called the phone number on the door but no one answered so we left a message, found an open pad and parked. The call was returned 4-1/2 hours later after we had completely hooked up our motorhome and unhooked our tow vehicle. The woman who called was rude and told us to leave $50 in cash or check in one of their envelopes and drop it in the mail chute. Every building on the property was locked and the laundry, showers and bathrooms were all permanently closed. WiFi and cable didn't work and whoever camped out in our spot prior to us left a gallon jug of water full of cigarette butts. There were dogs off leash and other campers who let their dogs crap everywhere but never cleaned up after them. We only stayed because we were 10 miles away when they called and were already set up. The next morning the owners showed up at our door before we had a chance to leave the envelope and demanded their $50 so I took the opportunity to ask them how they can charge $50 for nothing but a pad, electric, water and sewer and zero amenities save the loose dogs and dog crap. The woman got loud and demanded the cash, then started yelling that I'd better pay up or she was going to park a backhoe in front of our motorhome and call the police. We've never experienced anything like this and we've spent over 1,000 nights out in our motorhome. My only tip is STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. - Jim_L

The Wi-Fi is nonexistent, the cable is nothing but channels you can get over the airways. Poor customer service, if any. No one stays in the office, you call the number on the door of the office and hope they return the call. My advice, stay away. - MJW3079

There are some good pull-through sites in this park in the interior. The outer back-in sites are primarily gravel and are not very level.
The park is located on the Hwy feeder and there is a plant behind the park. Both of these contribute to the noise level in the park. It's a little loud but not overwhelming. - Booney

I enjoyed the golf course and the area very much. there were alot of things to do in the nearby towns.
The office staff was very nice. It has Pull through sites and 50 amp service. There was supposed to be WIFI but we couldn't figure it out. There was a swimming pool which was nice in the heat.
The spots were gravel with Lots of big trees giving you a lot of shade. The roads were paved around the campgrounds but there are a ton of pot holes so you have to be very careful. - houseofclarkes

I paid monthly and stayed for three months. The location and monthly price was a good value (which is why I listed 14 a night). The people who ran the park were very nice and courteous. The pool was out of order, and the wifi barely reached more than 10 feet from the main office. The park looked very trashy, because they did not require people to maintain their lots. I never used the bathrooms, but I am willing to bet they probably weren't that good judging from the appearance of the rest of the park. On the plus side they don't care about trailer age, trailer appearance, families, retirees, etc. All are welcome. If you aren't too superficial this park isn't half bad. - Swift_Strongarm

Stayed here one night. Check-in went fine once the reservation was found and clerk figured out we were not staying for a month. Our drive through spot was easy to find/get into. The CG has MANY full time in a myriad of rigs and their outdoor decorations, stuff or just plain junk greatly distracts from this CG. The roads are narrow, rough and curvy which made negotiating our 40' rig with towed, very difficult. Rate reflects the Passport America discount; this is not a $40 a night CG. I would not stay here again. - Monaco Bob
