There are a lot of tent sites and about 30 RV sites. The lake views are very nice. Kayaking is possible as there are shallow areas to put in. Fishing is nice from the high rocky area on the west side, but don't forget your fishing license as the state wardens have been ticketing for no-license a lot in the... More

This was my second trip to the park. Still water leakage from hookups, grass overgrown, lots of tents in the sight and sexual activities in the bathrooms from young campers in campsite. Also park hosts were nice, however, they were so nice they held up the line with talking (at one time 6 cars in line). They also wanted us... More

I had a family members' funeral to attend at Fort Sam Houston on a Friday, but the family luncheon and dinner was held in Bandera County. We took our RV to stay in as there isn't much in the way of hotels, and the family home has only one bedroom. We have stayed across the lake a few years ago,... More

Me and my wife love to camp and been to a lot of great places but Cranes Mill Park has the worst/rude staff! We will never go back and will tell all of our friends to stay away as well. Such a shame! Change your staff!

Reading the other reviews I was concerned about the rude staff but everyone was nice and friendly to us. We had a large party, 6 sites total, and everyone had a wonderful time. Bathrooms were clean but the ladies room did run out of toilet paper. Park is super nice but could use a swim beach especially for the kids.... More

We live minutes away from this park and decided to pack up all our gear when it turned out to be a beautiful day. We promised our children a fun day outdoors. We checked the website to make sure it was open, and it listed the price and seasons. We loaded up and arrived at the gate only to be... More

We came here with the intent to camo for most of the winter. They do allow extended stay if the park is not full. After almost 7 weeks we decided to head further south due to the chilly weather here. However, we did enjoy the campground~~ lovely views of the lake! paved sites with a nice picnic table, grill and... More

My family and I went to the entrance gate to get information about the park. The old lady who worked there was so rude and sarcastic to us. We were stunned at her behavior. She needs a different job where she doesn't come in contact with people.

I have done a lot of camping but the design of this campsite was exceedingly difficult for many members of the family. The design of using contineous steel poles completely around the campsite was pure torcher for the elderly and the very young members of our party. The 2 foot high barrier was difficult for the elderly to climb over... More

Staff was terrible, rudest people ive ever delt with. The old couple working the gate need to go live in a cave and make each others lives hell instead of ruining peoples vacations. Just plain rude from the second we drove up to the gate. Unbelievable....
