Water smells of SULFUR. Bring some drinking Water. RV with E & W is $20/nite at Live Oak. Plus $16 entry fee for 2 people.
The Camping areas are really spread out. No Verizon cell unless u hike to top of Mtn. Good trails. Clean restrooms.

Stayed here March 2019 and planning for future trips after C19. Saw that the reviews were not all that great. This was a beautiful setting for a park along the water, surrounded by mountains. Did not use bath house. Laundry facility old without any area to fold or set your clothes. Besides that an amazing place, water was beautiful colors. Will be back again.

Not sure why Tammy didn't like this place. Stayed in the Oakmont loop and found the facilities cleaner than most. Could be the fact that the place is empty as we are experiencing a polar vortex with daytime highs in the 40's. Nice campground with laundry facilities and many other amenities. Found the staff to be helpful and friendly. Would definitely come back here again.

Stay away from this once beautiful park. The staff is RUDE and do not care if you are even there. The park is not maintained well at all. The bathrooms are disgusting with backed up toilets, blood and tampons on the ground. The men's restroom was equally nasty. I'm highly disappointed in our park system for allowing this to be a representation of our great state.

My review and the features I will list is only for the "Oakmont Camping Area". There are a few other places such as the "Rio Frio", "Live Oak", "Persimmon Hill", and "River Crossing" camping areas. As for the sign in process, yes it could be better. Stand behind some glass, take a number, and wait for it to be called. The attendant I dealt with was very courteous and helpful. As for the park itself, the water here is incredibly clear, but there are far more people than I, personally, ever want to camp beside. It's also a place that has succumbed to a few gimmicks to attract people. For instance there is a putt-putt "course" that's in extremely rough condition. Also, I love dogs. I do, but please try to keep them from barking all the time. Some of the trails are paved, most are not. They don't have any long trails, but some are challenging. Imagine a large city park, with super clear water and camping allowed. Not bad, but certainly not the best.

No way should it take so long to check in on Sunday. Walmart all over. Five check in stations and two people working and it takes them 30 minutes a guest. I won't be back unless middle of winter.

Nice. No sewer hookups at campsites but plenty of dump stations. Check-in process needs to be streamlined. It took three and one half hours to check in on a Friday night.
