We stopped for one night on way from Carlsbad Caverns to San Antonio. Watch the directions carefully and follow the signs or you might end up in Mexico where the dam is. Marina was open for check-in. We kayaked for about 3 hours from the boat ramp. Large metal patio cover to help with the sun. Gorgeous sunsets. Wish all campers would keep their sites clean.
This is a most awe inspiring place to camp. Coming from northern Minnesota to Lake Amistad was like in another world. The views and sunset were magnificent. The campsite was nice. Very quiet during the winter months. I could not imagine how it would be I the summer. A true hidden gem. We stayed at Laughlin for 1 night. Won't do that again. FamCamp is located to close to the flight line. Noisy and all you can smell is jet fumes. If you come to Del Rio, you have to stay at Southwinds Marina. A little TLC in area in front of the RV park and general area would be a great improvement. The area looks like a catch all dumping area. Campers don't need to look at that. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much. Would return again and again.
I really enjoyed my stay here it is very quiet and peaceful. You have a beautiful view of the lake, and the campsites are level, with covered patio's and grills. As for the laundry, they have placed 2 stackable units that are unsat for the number of full timers in the park. (Just to small). Any supplies you may need means a trip to Del Rio, about 10 miles down the road. Had a few days of the dreaded Texas wind blowing, but had plenty of days to hike the shoreline, watching the deers and other critters. This is a great place to enjoy the quiet. Sprint Broadband card users, excellent 3G signal for internet access. Will come back!
I love the place i don't know why people post up bad reviews of the place. Everything is kept clean and maintenance does a great job around here. The manager is a good guy and the camp hosts are very friendly to everyone. If there is ever anything you need ask for Lyle he works here and is the best help you can find. The boats are in real good conditions and are very affordable fishing is great here everyone should try. I stayed at one of the cabins and they are really nice. They got a fridge microwave showers dining table kitchen utensils pans and a nice master bedroom. The only thing I had to bring was my linen and dish soap to clean up after. Has a basketball court volleyball court and a pavilion to have parties or barbecues. They provide free washers dryers and showers.
You have a beautiful view of the lake. Staff is very helpful and the camp hosts are superb. You have free washers and dryers. The grounds are well kept. Walmart super center is only 8 miles from the Marina. Boats are available for rent and the fishing is great. CHECK IT OUT!!!!!!
L.H. left this review using the Directory software: Previous comments pretty much cover it. Easy in & out. Camp hosts very friendly & helpful. Quiet, peaceful during the week. More traffic on weekends. The speed bumps keep most of the traffic slow. Winds more a breeze most of my stay. A nice, relaxed environment. Water activities available. Other activities not so much. Del Rio with WalMart, Home Depot, shops & stores about 12 miles south on great roads. Lake (reservoir) Amistad is jointly owned by US & Mexico. The middle of the dam is the border. Side note: I have stayed at 3 famcamps in the last few months and mil permanent party/DOD/border patrol are being allowed on more sites for extended stay. Maybe a trend?
We loved it here. The sunsets over the water are spectacular and seem to go on forever. We had some wind the second day along with rain that night but we expected it as a front approached. The sites were clean and the host very friendly and helpful. The store was closed all but the last day we were there so I can't speak to that. The facilities were very clean as were the grounds. The new canopies over the picnic tables were extremely nice. We are already planning on taking our boat back for a week sometime soon. The lake was full (about a foot over normal pool elevation). We loved the laid back atmosphere and the concrete pads, cable tv and wifi made our stay a good one. Lots of walking areas and little trails to go down by the water.
