Tres Rios River Ranch – Glen Rose, TX
I would rate this park a 5 out of 10. We stayed here on a monthly rate using 50 amp. Rate was $497/mo and it included unmetered electricity. This is a membership private park part of the Ocean Canyon Properties. They do have a public area that non members can use; however, reservations can not be made for these—it’s first come. Check in time is typical. If you are not a member, you will not get to choose your site. You are provide an escort to the site.
The park is clean, well maintained. Sites are dirt/grass. Concrete or gravel would be much better for when it rains and the mud. Very scenic with the rivers running around it. Lots of trees but not all sites are shaded. They offer WIFI for a fee. For a month it was $40.
They have a swimming pool and tube rentals for the river. They offer cabins for rent but unsure if you can use them if not a member.
Park staff leaves much to be desired. I would have given this park a higher rating had their staff actually enforced their rules and respected their paying guests. On the evening of 10/10/09 the park rented out the Tres Rios Palace building in the park, which is by the public campsites, to a private party with a very loud DJ. The booming base of the music literally vibrated the camper. Sheriff on hand at the party measured the decibel level at 82 but couldn’t shut it down unless it was over 85. So management would have to do something, which they didn’t. Quiet time for the park is 10pm. Management allowed the party and vibrating base to continue until 1 am, expecting their paying RVers and members to tolerate such a nuisance until late in the night. Many of our neighbors were equally annoyed.
I wouldn’t suggest ever paying to become a member of Ocean Canyon Properties when you will be asked to tolerate such private events. And if you are not a member and thinking of staying nightly, I would avoid the park on Saturday nights when they seem to book private parties. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
