We reserved 2 spots and drove 3 hours to get to what we thought was a "river front, pull - thru site on a slight grade" instead we got a curb side parking spot for our camper!!! It was awful.. Even the host said they should not have allowed us to reserve our spot with our pop up camper... In fact he didn't believe that I had indicated a camper at the time we made our reservations until I showed him a copy of the reservation I printed before we left..... We couldn't even use our spot because our camper would have never stayed parked on the huge hill... Luckily our friends were supposed to be on the next "parking spot" and theirs was a little less of a grade so we swapped with them! We had to park so close to the retaining wall that we could barely open our door and only then stepped into about 3' of dead leaves and branches!!! As far as river front - NOT - we had a good view of the trees though and the river was "somewhere" on the other side... on the positive side, the bathrooms were decent and the tables and grills were all in good shape. Will not EVER camp here again - VERY disappointed in the whole system!!! Even though I have complained, I have never even gotten a return call or our money back! I am sad to see a great way of recreation destroyed by poor customer service and lack of information
After camping this weekend at Round Spring Campground, I will admit it's not the best campground for RV's. There is only 1 area, that I saw, for RV's and it wasn't very scenic. I made my reservations online and thought the descriptions of each camp site was accurate. After getting there and looking around, they could be a little more specific on site size. We tent camp and it is a wonderful campground for that kind of camping. However, the sites are not "riverfront" and some of the sites are so small that 1 small tent is all that will fit on the site. We camp with 2 small tents or 1 big cabin tent. Some of the sites are not big enough for our equipment. We got lucky this weekend with the site we reserved, we had plenty of room for the tents. All of the tent sites I saw were level. The sites have a terraced look about them, great for being level but you will have to walk up and down stairs to unload the gear from the car. ONSR could be a little more specific about that as well. The park rangers made several trips through the campground patrolling the facility. I counted at least 6 times they passed our site on Saturday alone. I found this comforting in case we had questions or there were any problems. As far as riverfront camping, I was not concerned about this. I grew up on this river and I know how fast it can flood when the rains come. I'm happy to walk a short distance to the river rather than have the park rangers wake me up in the night to evacuate us. Overall, it was a very good experience for our family and we will be camping here next year.
We camped at round spring campground this last weekend. There are only 6 electrical sites and there is no shade on the sites. The 6 electrical sites are a concrete pad surrounded by asphalt. The sites are level and roomy just no shade. Most of the weekend was very pleasant, the Rangers were great, very helpfull very pleasant. The only problem was with the campground host, not so pleasant,not so friendly,not so helpful. The river was just a short walk from the camp sites. Lots of fun walking to the river and watching different canoes come in. We did the Akers to round spring trip, what a good time, clear clean water and great weather. We also did the cave tour at Round Spring, the Ranger giving the tour was very personable and gave a great tour. I would recomend this. Once again the only downer for us was the campground host.
