Pecan Park Riverside RV

San Marcos, TX
Stayed - Jan 2018

We learned about Pecan Park from our friends at RV Texas Y’All, and stayed here for 2 weeks.

in ground swimming poolIt’s well named. There are Pecan Trees all over the place!

Pecan has been around since 1968 and in some ways, you can tell it’s an older park. A couple of the turns are a tad tight, but totally doable in our rig and toad. Just follow their directions to your site and you’ll be fine.

campground roadThe main office building is true to it’s years, but seems well maintained. In addition to the office, there is a small store there with a rack of area info. It’s on the second floor, but they do have an elevator for accessibility. The pool is in the ground floor area.

Sites are quite level, and there is a newer, treeless section that we were in. Spacing between sites is pretty typical, and they are very level. Roads and sites are gravel with grass (and often trees) in

San Marcos River by campgroundPecan Park, also known as the Riverside Campground, is on the banks of the San Marcos River. There is a small river access spot. It’s a little on the steep side to get to it, but a basic set of stairs is there to help with access.

There is a pool, playground, laundry, and showers. Office has a small selection of items in their store. You can also get propane. Wi-Fi was pretty good. A couple of doggy yards are also available.

sign with a cartoon squirrel reads slow down our squirrels can't tell one nut from anotherThere are a lot of long-term/seasonal rigs there. But if you want more of a resort with loads of activities, there really wasn't much of anything in the way of planned activities, at least not in early January.

However,staff was friendly and helpful. And yes, they have a sense of humor about the squirrels.

blue poster reads please don't throw your cigarette butts on the ground. The squirrels crawl out at night and smoke them, and we are trying to get them to quit
This sign in the office gave me a chuckle.
I guess they do care for the squirrels
And the location is great. Tucked away from the main roads along the river, and yet just minutes from shopping. San Marcos is a great place to explore, and is just about midway between Austin and San Antonio. That made it a great place to base some touring out of, and after dealing with traffic in big towns, Pecan RV Park gave us a wonderful, quiet retreat.

Oh, and everything we saw appeared clean and cared for....
...even the squirrels.

Lots of washers and dryers, but not much room to wait
