The park has a boat ramp that allows fishing boats to be launched onto the Colorado and also has 2 fishing piers that allow shore fishing in the Colorado.

One of the nicer features in the River Park is a very large grassy field adjacent to the parking area.

If I had to choose one thing at the park that is a little less than desirable is that it's located adjacent to the FM 521 bridge over the Colorado and there's a lot of traffic noise during drive time in the morning and evening.

The park has a covered picnic pavilion with multiple tables and there are also outdoor picnic tables spaced along the river.

There aren't individual RV sites at the River Park. I just staked out a convenient spot in the lit parking lot.

Surprisingly, the Colorado is navigable by barges and tugboats even past the park and you occasionally see river traffic moving past.

I would definitely camp at FM 521 River Park again. For the most part it was a very quiet relaxing stay and the county does a good job maintaining the park.
Thanks for reading!
