Tres Rios RV Resort currently has an excellent 8.0 average rating on RV LIFE Campgrounds. According to one reviewer,
“This is a relatively small and historic park. There are no concrete pads, only caliche, but the areas are level with plenty of room around the trailer for a canopy and parking of 2 vehicles. A picnic table is also provided. The areas around all the pads is nicely cared for grass with limited stickers or burrs. There is walking access to the rivers, which are not very full at all right now due to the significant drought in Texas. The pool is the original one built in the early 1900s and is in great shape. A huge area is available for volleyball, tether ball, horseshoes, cornhole, or just running around. There are at least 2 fire pits available for use. The Lodge is open for residents to use to watch tv or book for a gathering. There is a HUGE pavilion for showing of movies, live entertainment or families.
We had severe weather while there and the park personnel came around to tell everyone we were welcome to park our vehicles in the pavilion to prevent any hail damage. We were very appreciative of that. They also advised us where we needed to gather in case a tornado warning was issued. We have been traveling for several years and have never had park personnel advise us where to go for severe weather, or where we can park our cars. HUGE KUDDOS to Tres Rios management for that one! The campers in this park were extremely friendly and looked out for one another. Everyone picked up after their animals and it was rare to find leftover doggie excrement! One thing we noticed was the seemingly lack of mosquitos, which we were well prepared for being next to 3 rivers and humid, grassy area. We can’t say this is the case all the time, but for this time it certainly was. There were Taco Tuesday and other afternoons of food provided for very nominal cost. We loved our time here and will be making it a favorite!” – via K_KCooper2 on RV LIFE Campgrounds
