My wife and I stayed here for several days while visiting relatives in Austin, Cedar Creek and Houston. This is a great location to see several sights in the area. We stayed on the Randolph AFB side - could not get long term stay on the Fort Sam Houston side of the Joint Base Recreation area. The shower/restroom facility is quite a distance to walk especially if disability hinders you. The closest restroom was a "one holer" with one urinal. The urinal was not in working order. There is no office on this side. Reservations must be made on the Fort Sam Houston side. There is no wi-fi available on the Randolph side, but it is available on the other side. One day, workers were clearing/cutting brush and dragged their cuttings between my 5th-wheel and my pickup, scraping the truck with branches and leaves. I hope if I am in the area again, I get on the Fort Sam Houston side!
We thought this campground was very scenic with the lake and wildlife, i.e. deer, gray fox, etc. The area should be expanded to add more sites; there are not very many available. There had been no rain in weeks, and the road into the sites was that white limestone dirt common to the area, which made getting the motor home and vehicle extremely dirty. They poured concrete for the sites, why not the road? In other words, there could be some improvements to make the area better. Laundry and bathrooms not all that great either. Not sure we will stay there again.
What a beautiful location for a campground. Uncle did well arranging to have this and the Ft Sam Rec Area on the map on this Corps of Engineers lake. Campsite pads are level and easily accessible ... plenty of room between them for moderate privacy. Weekends are very busy, with some noise after hours ... but not bad. Weekdays are like being in a private setting ... very quiet and nice. Cabins are adequate. We rented one for our Son/DtrIL/GDtr to visit us. Nothing fabulous. Typical "on-base" housing / TLF is much better. But for the setting, cabins are very adequate. Now the problem ... and I'm going to sound like a "repeat artist" here, because my only other review so far has the very same complaint. Bathrooms / Showers were not clean at all ... in fact, I'm not sure the floors had seen a mop for weeks. Toilet paper was out in both men's and women's ... you needed to carry your own if you wanted success. I offered my request for TP and a cleaner setting, which met with TP success, but not cleanliness success. Sent off a comment to the mgt which seemed to make a difference. At least TP was there and the showers looked cleaner, but the toilet area still lacked attention. Hey ... I'm really not a "clean freak" ... these bathrooms needed much more attention than they were receiving. Other than that ... I'd stay here again in a heart beat. Great setting ... beautiful lake ... price is right, as it is most of the time at military campgrounds. What a deal we get, eh?
