We were told by the folks at West Ft. Hood Famcamp that the ONLY way to get to BLORA was thru' Ft. Hood. NOT So. it's lots easier if you come from Belton. I'd follow the directions listed here, and not drive 30 minutes across Ft. Hood. The last review said it all. Sites are hit & miss. 1 is paved with W/E/S the next door site is a poorly sloped, gravel mess w/ nothing (or partial). We finally found a "full hook-up" site. Then after setting up, we discovered that the standard white, PVC pipe that RV parks across the country use for the sewer drain-is NOT the sewer pipe here at BLORA. It's a cutoff for the water. So the "full hookup site" I thought I had, really had no sewer. No matter-there is a dump. Just confusing, but it is a pretty place. The marina/lake layout is identical to Ft. Sam's rec area of Canyon lake. If you have a boat & are a fisherman this looks like a great place to HQ for the winter months. For an overnight-not so great.
Beautiful park and lake. Old flood debris not cleaned up on all Beaches. Good new cement pads in Deer and Cedar Creek, but not all are level, but good shade. The full hook up park area is out dated, too short, not level, broken pads and sewer receptacles are too far from the rigs and at the extreme rear of the pads. Nice cookers, fire rings and shaded picnic covers at each site. Must tie down the garbage can covers, Coons visit every night. Finding the park coming from TX Loop 121 was tricky for us as 1st timers. Its over 12 miles from the park to the commissary at the East Gate. Satilite TV is OK if a South exposure site is used due to lots of trees. Did not use Wi-Fi but Verizon Cell Phone is very weak every where except on high ground near the Main Office. We will return.

This is a beautiful place to stay and play in the summer and beautiful at Christmas time. Can't say much for the bath houses - cold. The sites are good for smaller rigs but we didn't maneuver too well in our 37'. Our stay was pleasant.
I found this stay to be as good or better than my previous one. This time of year is great here. A lot of the local businesses and military units put up Christmas lights. This is a big park and there are lots of lights. Worth staying here just to see them. I found the laundry this time. It is located in the back of the bathrooms in Deer Park. Also, in Deer Park, there are now some sites with full hookups. W/E/S. On another note, if you should happen to have a motor scooter or motorcycle, be aware that in order to ride it on base, you must have proof of a motorcycle safety course, and I didn't because I am not required to have a motorcycle license because I have a 50cc scooter, helmet with face shield, long sleeves, long pants, gloves, and sturdy footwear above the ankles. Seems a little extreme, but that is what they require. I do plan on staying here again if I am in the area. Stayed in the Cottages area. Still only 30 amp.
Cedar park is still closed from last year's flooding so we stayed in Deer park. Beautiful and spacious sites (some concrete pads)...very woodsy and would stay there vs the Cottage park for atmosphere even though only full hook-ups only in Cottage park. (big class a's were in deer park). Yes base (it is a city!) is 20 minutes away- diesel and recyling and 2 commissaries there but peace and quiet at lake offsets that. They did not respond while there to notice that we saw three water spigots leaking continuously. And we had to clean 2 bags of dog poop and one bag of toy parts when we pulled into campsite. Some campers drove way to fast and wrong way on one way areas. Those were the only negatives. Would go back and they are building quite a bit of 'shopping' in Killeen.
Stayed here from Feb 21 to Mar 1. Found it to be a nice place to stay. Broadband access and cell phone, both Verizon, worked well. Place was well kept. One of the campgrounds was shut down due to some damage from flooding last year. I stayed at Guest Cottages. 11 or 12 RV sites there with full hookups. Lots were not real level, front to back, but no major problem. I would stay here again.
I stayed here in a motorhome, but wouldn't do it again. There are only a dozen or so sites in this CG and only one or two are large enough for a good sized rig mainly due to pad sloping. Most, but not all, sites have ample room between them. It is not actually on the Fort Hood military post, but rather on a MWR recreation area at Lake Belton. User's don't have to go thru a typically military checkpoint gate. I didn't rate it very high in location because it's well off the normal highways and at least 20 minutes drive to any facilities on the military installation. Part of the access road is a bit curvey and you have to cross one cattle guard. That's not a major problem for any size rig, but one needs to drive carefully. Fishing and water rec equipment rental is available. There are some nice picnic areas.
Cedar RV Park - 5 stars. Very quite at this time of year with very few lights to obstruct sky or shine in windows at night. Dump station close by. Cottage RV Park - 3 stars. Sites small with steep slope on some. No room for slideouts on some sites. Bright lights but fairly quiet. Rated this campground 3 due mainly to small size of sites. Obviously made for much smaller RVs than typical today
