  • Nice place but there could be more for family and kids to do. When it is warm enough the spring feed pool nice. Pretty interesting local history.  more »
  • I went here to see the historic fort and learn more about it. It had an amazing history. However, I discovered that their museum is only open for a few hours on Saturday afternoons and the historic buildings are used as private residences. This place neither honors its legacy or would be a nice place to live. It looked so cheap and disgraceful. I drove around the tennis courts and saw grass growing up through cracks in the concrete. Pathetic. Maybe they have a good swimming hole for locals. But, I wouldn't take my dog for a walk there. Here are a few photos as an attempt to honor its history. Very disappointing.
  • We love the new restaurant there! Bon Ton Roulet Creekside Cafe!
  • I'm not really the outdoorsy type, but Fort Clark Springs kind of comes off as kind of boring. This is probably a nice place if you've got a lot of kids who like to go swimming, but terribly unexciting for the city slicker type. Can't say I didn't give this place a try, though. It's quiet, relaxed, and probably the most happening thing in Brackettville, if such a concept could be conceived.
  • Very friendly campground that let us camp in the RV park at tent rates. Very interesting historical setting with loads of beautiful buildings in the area. Great rec room with kitchen and seating. Excellent showers. Bear in mind that once you get to the entrance, the actual campground is 2 miles away.
  • We have been coming since our children were young. We have had family functions, of more than 50 in attendance. There is always something for the adults and children to do! The open area allows time to sit outside and spend quality time wirh family under the stars. The staff is awesome can't find better customer service with a smile!
