The campsites are on top of each other. The lay out makes no sense. You walk through other people's campsite to get to yours in most of these. The older female host was not a happy camper. We offered to pay an additional night since we weren't going to be out by checkout time, but when hubby ran into her again, while packing a load out, he says she complained about having to come back whether we stayed or left. We were the only ones there. Maybe she had super bowl plans 🙄. We probably will not be returning to this park. The only highlight was the astronomy club being out that weekend, and seeing the armadillos. I'd never seen so many, and they are fun to watch. I didn't realize they jump straight up when started.

Each camp site has a picnic table, fire ring, lantern hook and there's a shared water spigot.  Campsites too close to each other.  We wouldn't want to be here during the peak season.Buck Lake / River Trail.Campsites.South Llano River Hike In Campground
