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

Getting a late start to Rockport, TX, we found ourselves scheduled to be on the road on Thanksgiving day. I did some searching and found this park. The pictures looked OK. I assumed that if I was paying $60.00 per day, it would be a nice place. Wrong. This park is bad. If I had paid in the normal range of around $30.00, I would have been fine. This park is substandard. When we drove by and then into the entrance, I was shocked. Then the office was closed for lunch. When the office opened, I went into seek a refund. The young lady said she could not offer a refund, but would tell the owner. I have heard nothing from the owner. I should have known something was wrong when I had to pay the entire balance of the stay up front ($240.00), plus the policy of NO REFUNDS. Last night, there was a pretty serious (wife says threatening) argument that could be heard from within our motorhome. We kept our porch light on all night. I have stayed at worse places, but the fee was around $25.00 or was another type of park and I expected nothing. My complaint is paying $60.00 for a trailer park. Now I know why the entire amount must be paid in advance. Most people would leave when they saw what they were driving into and not stay even one night! My recommendation is to avoid this park. I could go on and on, but tired of thinking about it. If it were not for it being level and full hookups, our Thanksgiving would have been ruined. We made the best of it. - TexCuervo

Peaceful campground, they do not take reservations by phone and require full payment at time of reservations. Paid extra for a deluxe site which was too small for 40' RV, it required pulling in and backing out. It took a great deal of effort to maneuver between 2 large trees on right side (mirrors inches away from tree) telephone pole/power hookup on left and room for slide outs. Very Difficult entering & exiting river to swim or tube/float with downward slope consisting of shells. Saw several people fall & get slightly injured. Did not use their facilities, lighting was good. Staff closed up the office from 12-1 for lunch which is ridiculous. - JV1

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

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

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

Rate is based on monthly rate plus electric. This is a family-owned, quiet park on the outskirts of charming Wimberley. All sites are back-in and laid out in a U-shape against the trees, with a five acre meadow in the middle. The sites are large, with shade and patio furniture, but most slopr upwards from front to back. There are no rest rooms, pool, or other amenities except for the free cable TV which was excellent. And, with only 15 sites, the park is very quiet. Deer frequent the meadow in the morning and evening, and many birds also frequent the park. Verizon cell and 4G data were very good, and satellite TV was unobstructed. The owner and her mother are delightful to talk to, and genuinely care about the quality of residents stay. Not fancy, not many amenities, just a comfortable place to stay in the beautiful Hill Country. - Meanderman

This is a small quiet park located just south of Wimberley that has back-in sites nested against the tree lines. A large open field in the center provides a sense of openness. It was hot and dry while we were there. Even though sites are close together privacy is maintained. There are several long term sites. There is easy access to center of town. Deer will visit you late in the evening and early in the morning. The big question - would we go back? Yes! Without question. - WagginTails

What a beautiful location, right beside the Blanco River. Nice folks and easy to get in and out of. - Deb Landers

Do not use this campground if you aren't comfortable driving off interstates and staying in big rig friendly resorts. Barebones campground. Very tight (unhook and back up) turns for tag axle 43'. Two lane road for about 16 miles can be an adventure. Otherwise, clean park, good people, some shade and grass. No cable for short timers, but we got major channels with OTA. WiFi is iffy. Close to Wimberly and Blanco river. Follow web site directions and call before coming. Good FHUs. No picnic table. - Mr. Rick

Small, very quiet, out of the way, with deer roaming in the park. Good, full hookup utilities, TV, and excellent Wi-Fi. No public restrooms, showers, or pool. Fairly level, gravel, pull through site. Very nice lady at check-in. They do no take any credit or debit cards, cash or checks only. We would stay again. Wimberley is a unique, artist hill country with intriguing shops and galleries. We paid for 6 nights and the 7th was free. - starwind

Access to the park was good. Signage was good. When stopping to check in I was a little confused at first by a sign tells you to pull your rig around towards the exit! Check in was quick and informative. Now it makes sense why you are pointed to the exit. The main RV Park is across the street and down the road a short distance. Perimeter roads are paved and easy to manage. Our assigned site was 34. A freshly graveled pull through. It came with a table, power, water, sewer and a rock ring for a fire pit. We were able to get level only with the front wheels 8 - 10 inches off the ground. That makes for a huge first step. Back to the office for a more level site. We chose 5. It is a back in with the same features. Much better. Limited cell service and we could not get our Jet Pack to connect. The parks Wifi worked very well. There is no cable TV. We found a very few OTA. The sites are spaced well. Lots of trash cans and doggy doo bags available. We found the park, clean, quiet and well maintained. We checked the bathrooms and they were clean and not dated. We used Summit as a base to tour the area. Good access to Gruene, San Antonio and Austin. There are no restaurants or services within walking distance. We paid $29.85 per night including tax (weekly rate) and feel we received good value for our dollar. We would return. - Rollin Ollens

Park is in a pretty area. The Wi-Fi was very strong. We did not have any cell service with our AT&T phones. The spot we were parked in was so un-level our front wheels were off the ground. The hot-tub/spa outside by the pool was not functioning and water was green. The indoor hot-tub/spa had dirty water, the water level was so low the jets were above the water and the water temperature was lukewarm. - C Haynes

We stayed here for 2 nights. In and out very tight in a 45 foot motorhome, but doable. They made sure I was free of trees for sat reception. I was a bit afraid of scratches from trees, but they were trimmed nicely. Very strong wi fi which surprised me. We didn't use restrooms or laundry, but everything looked quite clean. Power was acceptable, although had to run gen when stove, oven and A/C all running at same time. - rdkpotter

We ran into tire problems getting here, so we didn't arrive until after midnight. Thank goodness there was someone to show us to our spot! The next morning an employee came around to make sure everything was OK.
All the employees were nice, but the long-termers seem to think they own the place. One man revved his loud bike up and was going in and out of the park, seemingly for hours. I don't know if he was trying to repair it, but it was hard to sleep in after a stressful day & night.
The dog area was nice. The lots were near each other. We didn't use any of the other facilities. - bleehow

We will not stay here again. Not many places to stay in Wimberley that are big rig friendly, but will go to Dripping Springs or Johnson City. We were given 2 different prices based on which owner is there (father or son). They are way over priced as there are no amenities or discounts given. The internet is very unpredictable and very slow. No cable TV and many of the sites that are available are extremely unlevel. Three to four levelers needed in some cases. 90% of the sites are permanent trailers. - goofy50

This place has made some improvements since my last visit. The RVs that looked like they would never leave have been removed. It's a small, but clean and quiet RV park. There is room between the sites, and there are plenty of trees. It's a no frills park, but quite nice. The river is within walking distance and provides a nice swim and play area in the rapids. Most of our time was spent swimming or in town. Blue Hole has been improved and is a lot of fun. - SoccerDad

Billy Goat's Gruff is horrible!!!! It is some stupid old grumpy woman’s back yard. It is not even a real camp ground. She stuck some window units in her sheds and calls them cabins. What a joke! Not one of the camp sites is right on the river like she will promise. We were going to camp there the weekend of August 1st, 2009. We got there and she was already mad because we arrived at 11 am. She says “Check in is not until 2:30, but I guess I could let you in.” This is here stupid backyard we are talking about; really, when does her yard close or open? We arrived and she was freaking out because the other person in our party had a pop-up camper; I had call her the Friday before and told her we were changing the tent site to a pop-up. I also had mentioned that we might have some other people showing up the next day and they would pay when they got there. She started to freak out and tell me, my wife and my friend that we were liars and to leave. She said she was going to call the police on us and my 3 small children (1, 3, and 4 year old.) ? I told her we would leave if she gave us our money back; she freaked out again and went in the house. We were promised 2 camp sites right on the river with water and electricity, not camping in some crazy lady’s backyard. She also told us, when asked about not being right on the river, “if you are too lazy to walk down to the river, you don’t need to be here. Camp at your own risk. There are many other places to camp; do not try here. Ask psycho woman for a picture of the “grounds” from the back of here house, you will see what I am talking about. I doubt she has any repeat campers. - julieab1
