San Marcos River, Texas | Campground | RV Park | Camping | Campsites | Wi-Fi

Be sure to go to the left margin and watch the Virtual Tour.
Looks like a nice nice park. I had never heard of it, so altho I cannot go anywhere with the AS this year, I would sure enjoy this park I think.
Man it even looks like many (or most) slots are shaded.
San Marcos area a great "central" locale for many area (Austin, SanAntone, New Braunfels, Greune, Wimberley) spots.

Also check out the free night (midweek) coupon somewhere on the site.
Somebody drop by and give Scorpiontimo a Texas Map. and an atta boy for pointing out this Texas campground.

And yeah the only thing "East" about it is that it is about a mile east of I-35.

Central TX

Thanks Chuck it was great visiting you and that was us. Ok everybody Central TX it is we are soooooooooooo new to TX figured it was east after spending so much time in Santa Fe took forever to get to this area figured we were at the end ha ha we really love this area and after traveling everywhere in this great country this has come to be our favorite. sounds like 1st weekend of June may be the best time seems most everyone likes that time .I will check the park for sites. Oh and most all sites are shade except the number 500 area they are new and no shade at all the 400 area is the best as the backup towards the river, This is a great river for fishing, canoe, kayak and tubeing. the area has much to see and experience. so all who want 1st weekend of June chime in and I can start setting things up . enclosed is a pic of our site at the park. Patrick Sean.

Scorpiontimo, I'm confused about the park, is it San Marcos or Pecan Park?

Check Newton, TX on the map that's East Texas!
Sounds like the first weekend in June would be ok for most. I just check our schedule and have to fly out the first Sunday in June so we would have to show up early in the week and leave on Saturday. But we wouldn't mind. Sounds like a really great park you guys are staying at. It would be worth the trip and float the river!

Sounds like fun. If your "soooooo new" to Texas pay attention to the weather "up river" if your at that campground.

We are up for early June. Are there places to stay for those who have no trailer?

Steve, I believe that this is the same place that was mentioned in Foiled Again's San Antonio thread. Their website says they have cabins. I also see that they have disc golf! Extra bonus!

Just saw an ad for a 24' argosy here in StL. Dunno about their "Mods" like the textured wallpaper, but it may be descent enough to camp in for the summer. Will look into it if not sold.

They do have cabins at the bargain price of $135/night plus 6% for occupancy Tax...May only get a single night out of the misses at that rate, but we'll see what happens.

Have you seen pictures? Is it scary wallpaper? My Argosy24 has quite nice textured wallpaper replacing some of the laminates, and the previous owner did a great job installing the wallpaper. The curtains ain't my fave, but they cover the windows well enough... Someday I'll get around to redoing the curtains but I'll keep the wallpaper for the time being.

Thanks Melody Ranch we heard about the 98 flood 5 foot of water, this used to be a mobile home park than, after the flood it became a RV park. The new owners have had it for 5 years and been improving it every year it looks good now someone has told me at one time it was an airstream park but I have not been able to verify that. Steve the cabins are 135 a night they are nice but cost, I can look around the area and see if a better deal close by if you want maybe even a person in the park my rent a RV out that they are not using as we have some in storage for when people come to stay. also it looks like the rate may be 35 for the night Summer rate but I will check into that. yes we have disk gulf nice course,and a nice horse shoe pit, if any one wants to tube we rent them for $7. or bring your own we have a shuttle I run the shuttle, it is $5 but I will try to work out with the park free shuttle for tubing for our group. The 3rd -5th of June is the dates I am looking at we have about 25 open sites but will have to reserve a site soon as this place fills up in the summer, The weekend before is full already but thats a Holiday anyway. There is much to do in the area the town is nice with a great walking down town its a collage town so some good bars to check out. for the shopping people there is and outlet mall 5 minutes away it is one of the largest in the south.
We have a large BBQ cooker we have access to, for TX style cooking I think we can fit half a steer on it sounds like I will have to crank up the dutch oven and throw on some ribs in the cooker. the web site is Untitled Document let us know who wants in so we can start getting a count , and make you reservation soon if anyone wants to give a repair class we have a large rec room with Lg flat screen or pot luck we have the building. I plan on some cooking on Sat bring a dish I got the meat little mix of Cajun and TX BBQ. when looking for a site try and stay away from the 500s as no shade nice pull troughs but shade less will post more info as we get it. Patrick.

Sounds like it is an official rally. I would create a rally sign up page, and ask the MODS to change the title of the thread to something like, "Central Texas Rally" or something like that. This way people don't think east TX, and are more inclined to read up.

Since we would want to attend the whole weekend, the $135 is a little steep for just a place to sleep at night (That's all we're going to do there anyhow), and we dont need quite that much room with only Amy, myself, and a 6 year old. Please let me know other options.

As for the Argosy, I have not heard back from the owner yet.

Steve

We can swing June 4-5 and maybe the 6th. I'd like to be there the evening of the 3rd but have my little girls dance recital in San Antonio that night. I need to see we could make it in any reasonable time on Friday. Would it be possible to do an early check-in on Saturday morning, provided a site was available? Seeing that I have a front bedroom model, a river back in spot (in the 400's) would be ideal if they are available. I'm open to suggestions.

That should be no problem at all. what you will see is trees towards the river as we are so high up on the banks it is like 50 or 60 feet from the river but nice to see the tree's as opposed to looking at trailers. you should make a reservation and ask for the 400's I will tell the office that people will start calling in , I think for most the 300's and 400.s will be best as puts us all together and close to river and BBQ area with gazebos
