Campground Review: Kerrville-Schreiner Park Kerrville, TX


On my way west from Austin  to my eventual destination of the BLM campsites outside Quartzite, AZ I stopped at Kerrville-Schreiner Park outside of Kerrville, TX.


The park was once a Texas State Park but the State gave it to the city of Kerrville which now operates it.  The park is a small 517 acre plot along the Guadalupe River.  There are 120 campsites for all types of equipment from bicycle, motorcycle, or car camping to super-sized motor homes and trailers.  Campsites range from general sites with no hookups to pull-through sites with water, 30/50 amp electrical hookups, and sewer connections. It has 40 RV campsites and 8 small cabins for rent along the river bank.  In an effort to convey a more uniform quantity of data I'll use the following table in my campground reviews going forward:

Hookups:                        Water, 20, 30 and 50 amps
Fire ring:                                yes
Water Access:                       yes
Dump station:                       yes
Sewer:                                  yes
WiFi:                                     no
Level sites:                            yes
Laundry:                                no
Store:                                    no
Pool:                                     no
Shade:                                  yes
Verizon reception:             3g 2 of 5 bars  
Millenicom reception:         2 of 4
Cost:                                 $21 / night (off-season)

Swim dock access on the Guadalupe River
Small amphitheater in front of the Rec Hall.
Rental cabin - 2 bunkbeds and a dining table AND an air conditioner!
Tank parked under the oaks at site 215..
I'd give Kerrville-Schreiner a positive mark except for one deal breaker -- the road noise!  The park is situated along Texas Highway 27 and my campsite was probably less than 500 feet from the road and was noisy.  For that reason I probably won't be back but if you're a sound sleeper you might not be bothered so much.  Heading west in the morning!

Thanks for reading!
