This park had availability for a week during spring break. While this park is a Good Sam park, they don't let you use your GS discount during "peak seasons" and that includes spring break. (peak times according to their website is unclear). We were initially happy with our "deluxe" location, the river just down the hill, once our neighbors arrived (great folks on both sides) it felt like we were right on top of each other. If you park in front of your camper to be off the road, then your truck is your view. There is no room to park on either side, w/o encroaching on your neighbors space/grass/view. So that was disappointing. Now the pool. My kids attempted to go to the pool and each time came back and said they couldn't get in. Wanting to extend grace that during our initial check-in, the pool regulations they had may have been discussed, but I was getting a ton of other information handed to me about important park papers to read, etc. (non of which included their pool policy) When I approached the office the following day later to inquire about the pool, the lady just looked at me (as if she was thinking to herself that she already explained this) and went on to say in order to use the pool, you have to make a reservation for one hour a day, per family, per spot. So I proceeded to take the next available opening (for 2 days later). So here's a thought, perhaps upon check-in when the customer is getting inundated with a ton of information, maybe take a moment to ask at that time, if they would like to make a reservation at that time. OR include a "use of the pool" paperwork with all the paperwork that we're encouraged to read so that we have a better understanding of your parks policy and can return to the office to make a reservation. The gate code. We were given a gate code and told not to share it. A couple days later, I came back from Walmart with groceries and my code didn't work. I couldn't get in. The line for the office had several families waiting their turn, and I ended up having to park at the office and walk my groceries over to our spot. When I tried calling the office, no one answered. I eventually ended up following someone in when I returned to my truck. When the office wasn't busy later that day, I asked about the gate code, only to be told they changed it because their was a glitch. Really?! So the rest of us that didn't get the NEW code would just have to discover that they couldn't get in or just piggyback on someone ahead of them? What's the point in providing contact numbers if no one uses them to let you know there's been a change that ultimately affects you getting to your camper. Very frustrating. Overall, we had a good time. There's too many other parks out there waiting to be to discovered.

Stayed here while coming back across the country to the east coast. Web site made this place look appealing so we booked a couple extra days to unwind but I have to say that this place does not match the website. Everything is kind of run down and of course they are riding the covid 19 goat to the max. Pools and hot tubs are closed without any discount. Felt very ripped off.

Wife and I where here for a short visit as we made our way from from DFW to Port Aransas. We wanted something that was walking distance to the river and room for our 5th wheel. When we reviewed the website it looked like they had several `premium' sites that seemed nice. Especially when your make you pay the full amount of your stay when you make the reservations. We are used to that when we have stayed at very nice parks that perhaps are on the beach or have lazy river/swim up bars, etc. Well....this is not that. It is a very basic RV park with approx 30% of the spots `lived in'. Definitely a short walk to the that was nice....however our `premium site' was right next to the dumpsters, had a gas grill that I would not suggest anyone cook on and a concrete slab for the picnic table....not for the RV. We should have thought something was up when they do not let you choose your site, yet you have to pay 100% up front. This was one of those parks when we drove in....we looked at each other and really thought of looking somewhere else. However that would mean we lose $200.00. Again....buyer beware that you are not staying in a top notch is very basic. Close to the river yes....however several other parks nearby for a lot less...and they let you choose your site.

Sean, we're sorry you were disappointed by your stay. We try to be as transparent as we can about the nature of our RV park, which is nestled in a mature grove of pecan trees and not attempting to be a shiny, paved resort. We have current photos all over our Facebook and Instagram accounts, and many photos on our website, as well. Regarding your RV site...we are looking at your reservation request right now, where you specifically requested three sites in a specific order. We gave you your #1 choice, which was 231. We're not sure how you would've chosen any sites by number without looking at our site map. On our site map, you can see that 231 is near the dumpster (to be fair, it is on the other side of the road). We wish you would've spoken to us about your grill when you were on property, so we could've attended to it to your satisfaction. The propane tank was filled five days before at the request of another guest, so we know it was working well then. All in all, we thank you for your business and wish you safe travels.

We have stayed here numerous times in the last few years and have always looked forward to our visits. I called to make reservations and was rudely informed that they did not take reservations on the phone. I asked how I could make sure we were in a spot where we could get satellite reception I was told we cannot request specific sites and would have to take what they assigned. OK! Went to website to make reservations and made a note about satellite. In order to make the reservation we had to PRE-PAY FOR OUR TWO WEEKS STAY AND THERE WERE NO REFUNDS. NO EXCEPTION! Even if the park flooded (which it has a few times recently), only credit on next visit. Upon our arrival in a half empty park, we were placed next to pipeline workers who got up early in the morning to go to work. They were very nice guys and not rowdy, but we are retired and have done our time getting up early. Again I will say that the park was half empty, the grounds and customer service have continued to go deteriorate with each visit.

Hi Stevic, thank you for your review. Our weather refund policy has been in place since 2015. You stayed with us in April 2018 and we didn't receive any negative feedback from you then. Our online reservation system is in place to avoid miscommunication, and put the power in the hands of our guests. Online, you can verify all your reservation details before booking, which helps us avoid any mistakes. You requested a pull-through satellite service site in the 500 row. We put you in site 517. While we are condensing sites right now to make room for our Winter Texans, we still want all our guests to be satisfied with their sites. We know your neighbors well and they are always respectful to other guests. But you could've come to our office in person to talk about your concerns, and we would've done our best to accommodate you by seeing whether there was another site you could move to. We wish you the very best.

Arrived on Sunday afternoon to a very run down park. The gates are gone. Driveways in very poor condition. The photographs on the website are not representative of what is there. No one was in office but we had a reservation so paperwork was waiting for us. Paperwork stated that we must check in with them by 10:00 when they opened the next day. We were touring San Antonio on Monday so I started calling them shortly before 10. Left several messages. Finally reached someone about an hour later. Told me that we must come into office in order to get discounts. The don't take Visa, just MasterCard. We left our visit to San Antonio early to make it back in time to get discounts as we were staying almost a week. Office hours are not conducive to tourists to the area and they don't care. Site was basically okay. Nothing fancy. Early Wednesday morning the rains started. We expected those. What we didn't expect was 8 inches of flood water surrounding our RV. What quickly became apparent was that their regulars are given sites in higher elevations and the few of us travelling through were put in the flood zone. NO ONE came to help or even asked if we needed help. Even worse, everyone knew the rains were coming and they didn't bother to tell us we would be flooded out. Unless they know you: don't stay here. I don't understand the high ratings given for this park.

Jafud, thank you for your feedback. It sounds like there has been some miscommunication. Our office door is always open to our guests who have questions or issues. Our desire is to have these conversations in person, to alleviate frustration. Since we weren't able to talk to you while you were still at the park, some insight regarding what you mentioned. 1. Our gate system was destroyed by the Memorial Day and Halloween floods of 2015. Once our 5-year recovery plan is complete, the gate system will be operational again. Far from run-down, our park is actively maintained by a team. We are currently working on our pool, stairwell, painting the buildings, and tending the grounds to get ready for our summer guests. 2. All of the photos used on our website were taken after the flooding. Anyone is welcome to go on our social media accounts (Facebook and Instagram) to see new photos of the park, which are being shared constantly. 3. The road to get to Pecan Park is maintained by our municipality. We have petitioned them multiple times to take care of the road better, but it's been a source of frustration. But as of yesterday, almost all of the road was paved! We've shared your frustration, so we're extremely happy to see this action taken. 4. I've talked to all of my office staff, and it seems there was a miscommunication regarding check-in and discounts. We would never interrupt a guest's vacation plans if a check-in could be pushed back to a later time. We normally require discounts to be verified in person for obvious reasons (e.g. showing Good Sam card or military ID), but we would've taken an email attachment of your card because you were away from San Marcos. 5. We don't have any record of receiving 8 inches of rain during your stay. Even with that amount, there would be no danger to life or property, so we wouldn't do any kind of check-in site to site. We have a rigorous process for taking care of our guests in the case of actual flooding, which involves making phone calls to each guest, and then going to each RV and knocking on the door. If you were having any issues whatsoever, I wish you would have reached out to our office. It's our job to take care of our guests, but we can't fix what we don't know about. All the best to you.

Check in office is up a flight of stairs to a second story office. Check in was smooth and office personnel were warm and friendly. A few items you might expect to fine in a "camp store" but not many. Park appears to have many full time "homesteaders" working in the area and living in the park. Large speed bumps on the streets in the park. The park stated they had metered LP however, there was a problem with the pump and the attendant couldn't repair it and didn't know when it would be fixed. Overall park was quiet and a nice setting near the river. Good for overnight but not a long stay place for us.

BCPC, thank you for taking the time to leave a review! There is an elevator up to the office on the right side of the building, as an alternative to the stairs. We apologize that our propane fill station was down during your visit--it is back up and running now. Anyone can fill propane at our park you don't need to be a guest. Happy trails!

Nice facilities. My only complaint is: They have a coffee pastry get together in the am on a day of the week. The pastry consisted of doughnut holes. My interpretation of pastry is Danish type of pastry. Not doughnut holes. The staff was friendly though.

Thank you for taking the time to review our park! Glad you enjoyed our facilities and staff. We try to keep Monday morning socials new and interesting by switching up the free menu, sometimes homemade goodies, kolaches, bagels, etc. We hope you will join us again for a different menu item. Safe Travels!
