The vibe at Dos Rios Camping

Skip this if you are a tent camper
This is an RV park with 8 tent sites. The access to river is really small and limited, no shade by the water. One bath house for 40+ sites. The river looks like every other river in Texas. Nothing special here.
I tried to rent a canoe in advance, but the host didn't reply. When we saw him, he was not just rude, but mean. The manager offered me a canoe for FIFTY DOLLARS (more than the cost of our three day trip!) And he didn't even have canoe paddles. He tried to convince me for $50 to use kayak paddles with a canoe. Really? I'm a professional paddler. Believe it or not, the two paddles are designed very differently and don't work interchangably! He kept pushing, kind of hard, for the money from us, even though we declined because of lack of matching equipment. He was actively angry with us for bothering him and turning down the mis-matched equipment.
The manager drives his bulldozer around the property. Not a pickup truck. A full size bulldozer. It's loud. He drove around from 7a to 6p all 3 days I was there. He was also chopping down a tree without care. Loud chainsaws I could hear all over the property. My friend and I were walking and he literally almost dropped a large branch on us because he didn't pause his landscaping for us to walk by.
You can do much, much better for $30 per night. Skip this. Hit a state park or a different hipcamp. I'm sure this place is acceptable for RV campers.
I had a great time at Dos Rios! Colin was very helpful and provided detailed instructions on the camp. However, be careful with the hipcamp checkout process as the campsites are wrong! On checkout it makes it appear as if the campsites are scattered along both sides of the river when in reality they're all clumped together on one end of the river. The Dos Rios website has the actual campsites that correspond to the numbers in checkout. We ended up driving onto what we thought was our campsite but turned out to be private property. I didn't have a bad experience, but I was really disappointed since I'd picked my tent site specifically for the supposed location near the water and I ended up far from the river.
Great location, Collin and Michaela were very helpful. We got in and found a spot to set up our tent. Grilled late and night folks around us were friendly. Water was pretty cold but it was sunny enough to dip in our toes. We'll def be coming back.
I just wanted to write in and say what a great time I had at the Dos Rios Campsite in Mason County. The spots were beautiful, the host was gracious and the area was CLEAN. I met a nice girl names Ashlee who was fly fishing and she said that she was taking some photos for Hip Camp, she was super nice and pointed me in the direction of a few good fishing spots.
All in all a great experience!
I set up my tent in 2 different spots for the nights that I stayed here - and ended up not using the tent either night, pulling my sleeping pad and bag out of the tent to sleep under the brilliant stars. This place is magic, and we timed our trip perfectly during a new moon. The river is gorgeous, clear and cool, and the landscape is about as good as it gets in Texas. The drive out to Dos Rios is part of the experience, so be sure if you’re coming from Austin to stop in Luckenbach or visit Enchanted Rock along the way. And - unless you don’t eat meat, STOP AT COOPER’S BBQ in Mason.
Good bathroom/laundry facilities not within quick walking distance. Right by water but also right by a fairly busy road. Great if you just need a place to crash! Lots of RV's (we were tent camping). Texas countryside is gorgeous as always, and the stars out here are magnificent!
