  • Very impressed with this park. This Park was once a state park and is now run by the city of Kerrville. Park is split by the Bandera Highway. Part of the park is on the north side of the highway and p...  read more »
  • My wife and I camped at Scheiner Park recently and had a great time. Camping sites are very nice. We enjoyed taking some of the hiking trails and rented kayaks, paddled around on the Guadalupe River. ...  read more »
  • It's okay but during the summer months you'd have to get there super early to get your "piece" of the "beach" to bbq or just pitch a tent or your beach towel for your family. The beach area is not ver...  read more »
  • We just returned from a two-night stay at the city-operated park -- we had a great time with our two granddaughters. The unmowed meadows were a fiesta of yellow and red and blues and purples with butterflies dancing here and there. In the evenings, fireflies came out. Restrooms were fine. We would love to try the little cabins along the Guadalupe at some point. Helpful staff in front office -- they were happy to accommodate us changing sites. Very nice. My only complaint was the reluctant reception of the camp "hosts." We needed help twice -- once to find the laundry facilities and again to find jumper cables. We didn't bother them early in the morning with our needs -- mid-day. Each time I had to knock several times before someone (first the man and then the woman) came to the door and opened it a crack (literally). It was obvious to me that they did not want to be disturbed. The man gave me only the vaguest indication of where I might find the laundry -- I had to seek help again at the front office. Then we found ourselves in need of jumper cables (our fault for not bringing ours) -- and the unhappy face of the woman host greeted me when she finally came to the door. No jumper cables, which is fine, but also no questions about the nature of our problem either. Not a trace of concern in her voice. She could literally have cared less about us. Poor hosts.
  • Lived in Kerrville 15 years and enjoyed camping there with my family. Since moving to San Antonio, I go back several times a year by myself just to relax. Trails are nice. Love having campfire, watching the deer and star gazing. Grounds and rest rooms/showers are always clean.
  • The best thing about this park is their beautiful brochure. Our experience went down hill from there. The park office workers seldom answer the phone nor do they reply to voice messages. We were traveling with our 36 ft fifth wheel and found their FHU loop sites to be tight. The sites were surrounded by trees that continuously dropped seed pods about the color and shape of shelled macadamia nuts. From inside the rig it sounded like a hail storm. These pods collected on the roof and were a chore to clean off the slide tops when packing up to leave. The Bandera Highway or Texas 173 goes through the middle of the park. This road is heavily trafficked. On the brochure map it does not show that there is another heavily traveled road that crosses the Guadalupe River. If you camp in the Pecan Loop or Sycamore Circle there are heavily traveled roads on both sides of you. Although there is a nice 4 mile paved path along the river for walking or biking between this park and Hayes Park, there is a tall chain link fence along the park boundary so that you cannot get to the river path from the Kerrville-Schreiner parking area.
  • I had a great time being on the water in a conoe I rented out there.And all the wild life I saw on my hikes..
  • Good to know! Thanks for the reviews. Gonna head on out there!
