We love TPWD and their parks across Texas. We decided to drop in at Buescher SP to see if they had availability. The Ranger at the headquarters was very nice and accommodating. She sound us an RV site for one night in a great spot along the lake, Site 19. The location was a little circle drive, set back. It offered a deep enough drive for our truck and 24' RV. The hook up was 30 amp with water. Single dump station nearby. Site also had a fire ring and grill, as well as a picnic table. There was ample greenery between the sites to offer a sense of privacy. The area were at also had mini cabins. If we had our kayaks it would have been perfect. We missed some of the trails, only being able to go on one which was pretty nice. The bathrooms were clean and well kept. Park hosts were nice as were our neighbors. All in all a great park. Only draw back is that it is still so close to Hwy 71 that there was quite a bit of road noise. So, while I gave a 4 star, I would have given a 4.5 if I could.
What a beautiful park. The drive on Park Road 1C is amazing. Did the Pine Gulch Trail with my girlfriend and pup. Not as challenging as the trail map says but definitely wear hiking shoes. Coming back to camp and canoe some day.
