While there are many RV options out in the great state of Texas, it can often be difficult to decide on which one is actually best for you. In fact, it can be so tough to pick from all of the quality locations that it can actually be rather helpful to look at which are the highest rated when making your selection. Woodall Publications Corporation, a producer of the most comprehensive campground directories available, has thankfully compiled a list for us of the best sites in the whole country.
Out of 8,000 privately owned campgrounds, they selected 307 with the highest ratings, 20 of which are in Texas. While their list is more comprehensive, it can be quite a lot to sift through, and also doesn’t contain stunning photos of the sites themselves which can really give you an insight on how amazing these locations in the Lone Star State truly are.
Based on Woodall’s full compilation, here are the top 5 that you’ve got to check out:
1. Bluebonnet Ridge RV Park
Situated on 64 acres about 5 miles east of Terrell, this RV park offers an ideal location facing a lake in a gorgeous country setting. Since 2009 they’ve been ranked in the Top 100 Good Sam Parks in the whole country and feature 90 spacious and very well-maintained full hook-up sites – all of which include 20/30/50 amp service, water & sewer, TV and WiFi, and a concrete patio that has a picnic table and shade tree. If you love to fish, their 5-acre lake is also well-stocked for heading out on the water!
2. Buckhorn Lake Resort
In the Heart of the Texas Hill Country you can enjoy a stay at this premier RV campground! Their highly rated site features complete landscaping, full hookups, concrete pads, and wide paved roads for easy access. Located just off Interstate 10 at Exit 501, the popular resort isn’t a very far drive from several wonderful small towns and only an hour away from San Antonio. You may also be impressed with their endless amenities, ranging from 30/50 amp service to WiFi and TV, swimming pools, an exercise fitness center, laundry facilities, an enclosed dog park, year round RV storage and so much more.

4. Guadalupe River RV Resort
This charming resort just off I-10 by the Guadalupe River offers a relaxed family atmosphere that makes for a perfect vacation spot!

5. San Jacinto Riverfront RV Resort
You deserve a luxurious (but affordable) stay, and this RV park located only about 20 miles east of Houston can provide just that. Set on the San Jacinto River, this top-quality resort offers 300 full hook-up RV pads, most of which are spacious pull-thru sites, plus a 150-foot fishing pier.
