Medina Lake RV Campground – Should You Stay There?

Medina Lake RV Campground review

Medina Lake RV Campground is located on 215 Spettle Road in Lakehills, TX.

This Thousand Trails campground is nestled down by the edge of Medina Lake. And it’s a park that gave us mixed emotions about how we feel about it.

First of all, it has a woodsy vibe and the surrounding area is beautiful. We enjoyed not only the trees and lake, but also the number of deer that wander through the park.

In fact, we encountered several dozen deer during our stay and they definitely engage with you. It gives you such a feeling of calm and serenity.

That being said, the park itself could definitely use some improvements. They seem to be making some … but they have a long way to go.

For instance, many of the roads inside the park have very large ruts and holes in them. And you have to be very careful while navigating them to ensure the safety of your RV.

And that is especially true for big rigs. We had to be extra careful while finding a spot to hitch and unhitch our tow vehicle.

We also observed that many of the sites are not kept up hardly at all and are pretty much unusable.

The sites that are in decent shape mostly offer only 30 amp service. There are some 50 amp sites scattered through the park though.

How To Avoid Buying An RV Money Pit

In fact, we were very glad to be able to secure our 50 amp site with full hookups. But just be aware that not all sites in the park give you that option.

And if you get a site with 50 amp service, you also need to know that there is a $3 upcharge per night for it.

As far as the appearance of the park is concerned, all of the amenities are older. But they do have a large and fairly nice pool.

And the bath houses are in the process of being updated some, so that is good. The laundry room is definitely older and could use some updating, but the appliances were clean and reasonably priced.

Internet Connectivity At The Campground

Because the park is located away from most sizeable towns, we found that our internet connection was a little difficult. It was not apparent that they even offer campground wifi.

And even getting solid internet service with our AT&T hotspot and our T-Mobile phone plan was spotty. So we had to resort to using our cellular booster to get a reliable internet signal.

It’s not often that we find we need to use our cellular booster at most RV campgrounds. But it was a requirement for us in Medina Lake RV Campground.

After switching the cell booster on, everything worked fine and we were able to stay connected from then on.

Our Conclusion About The Park

The campground staff was very pleasant and accommodating throughout our stay though. And overall, we truly enjoyed our time there. Especially with the resident deer population.

We feel that just seeing the lake, the sunsets on it and the beautiful deer was the highlight of our stay.

It was quiet, relaxing, and very peaceful. And yes, we would return again in the future.

Of course, we know the park’s pros and cons now and so would know better how to work with them.

To be fair to all aspects of this park then, we would give it a 3 star rating.

We hope this review has been helpful for you if you have been considering a stay at Medina Lake RV Campground.
