Lake Amistad was the first time we spent more than a week in one location. This was partly due to deciding to set up solar power and ordering last minute supplies from Amazon. The lake was recommended to us as a “hidden gem” in Texas. This coupled with the low camping fees brought us to the lake and we ended up staying for 14 days! If you find yourself near this area I highly recommend stopping by for at least a couple days. There are 6 State campgrounds scattered around the lake. The two that we recommend are Governors Landing and San Pedro Campground. Here is a summary of everything you need to know to get the most of out your stay.
This campground offers no hookups. They do have restrooms scattered throughout and trash service. Campsites have a grill and table with seating area. There is no water or dump station IN this campground. You can get potable water and dump nearby at no cost.
There is no water or dump station IN this campground. You can get potable water and dump nearby at no cost. An RV dump station with potable water is located along the road to the Diablo East boat ramp.
There is no Wifi but you can get excellent cell service. We had LTE coverage with Verison and Sprint.
You are allowed to have pets but they must be kept on a 6ft leash at all times and please pick up after your pet.
GROCERY & ERRANDS
One reason we picked this campground was that it was the closest to town. There is a Super Walmart about 6 miles away. In town, you will find all the typical businesses you would expect in a town. A few that we found useful was the post office, UPS, veterinarian, movie theater, and fast food joints.
During our stay, we didn’t see more than 8 occupied at any one time. It’s a quiet campground. Quiet time is between 10 pm and 6 am but even outside that time frame, it was very peaceful.
There are 35 campsites (30 RV 5 Tent) in San Pedro. The campsites are in great shape, they are well maintained and there is plenty of room so they are “Big Rig” friendly.Each site has a covered picnic table and fire grill.
The campground is accessed via a 1¼ mile graded gravel road. You will be driving on a dirt road but it’s in good condition. There were some bumps on the way into the campground, so try to drive slow. Keep in mind that this is typically a dry climate so drive slower to reduce dust.
Things to Know Before You Go
They do not take reservations and sites are available on a first-come first-serve basis. The campground is generally open year-round and rarely fill up. Site #6 is typically the most popular. It is further away from the rest of the campground and it’s the only site with a view of the lake.
Most of the sites are out in the open with minimal tree coverage but there are a few sites that have a decent amount of shade during the day. The best site for shade will be the very first site you come upon after you enter the campground.
There is a self-pay fee station centrally located at each designated campground. You can pay by cash, check, or card.
There is not a direct access to the lake from this campground. If you are looking for lake access I would recommend staying at Governors Landing. There are fewer sites and the cost is $8 per night. They also have a max RV length of 28ft. I don’t know how strictly that is enforced but it’s pretty tight. Governors Landing is also the only State campground that had water available in the campground.
