Southwinds Marina on Lake Amistad Featured
Apr 14-17, 2017
Good location for us to visit Amistead National Recreation Area. Weather was surprisingly cool, cloudy, and occasional sprinkles so never took advantage of kayak or boat rental. We were in site 5 with 50 amp and water, no sewer. Okay by us because we would use the dump station on our way out. WRONG! Dump station was worst we have ever seen for a military campground. Approach around back of laundry was broken concrete with large potholes. Dump area was narrow with curbs on both sides. Open pvc drain with no cover and no water. We elected to pull thru an empty site and use the sewer connection there. Checked out the bathrooms and showers. Very dirty. Surprisingly the laundry was very good. New washers and dryers, free, and the room was quite clean. Trash can was full, obviously hadn't been emptied in a while. Homemade trailer still in a site but no sign of occupant. We liked the back-in electric/water only sites better than FHU as we had a nice grassy area and more space between our neighbors. We were here over Easter weekend so there were lots of young families and children. No problems and everyone seemed to have a good time. Very nice playground for children. We would stay here again if in the area.
