Cedar Ridge Campground


Cedar Ridge Park Campground is located at Belton Lake, which provides some of the best fishing, camping and boating in Central Texas. This year-round campground accommodates both tents and RVs and has several sites with screened shelters for those who do not have camping equipment.
The facility provides many amenities, including hot showers, group picnic areas and free wireless internet for registered campers. A concession marina within the park offers fuel and basic convenience store items, as well as a seasonal restaurant.

Facilities

All 76 campsites, including screened shelter sites, have water and electric hookups, a covered picnic table and grill. There are also restrooms with flush toilets and showers and two dump stations. The park is staffed with full-time gate attendants and volunteer campground hosts. The camper service center offers free wireless internet to registered guests, laundry facilities and a group meeting space. The campground has two sections. On the east side, campers will find the fishing dock, swim beach, playground and basketball court. The west side offers a marina and two group picnic shelters, which can each host up to 100 people in addition to volleyball courts, a horseshoe pit and a large cooker. A group camping area (Turkey Roost) is also available, which features the same amenities in addition to 10 group camping sites for RVs or tents.

Natural feaures

The campground is partially forested with a mix of sun and shade. It lies on the shores of Belton Lake and Cedar Creek, with its scenic white limestone bluffs. Some of the campsites are directly on the shore, while others are a short walk away. The springtime brings an abundance of wildflowers that blanket areas of the park. Deer, turkey and other small game are commonly seen, and a man-made wetland on the opposite side of the lake provides an additional 25 acres of wildlife habitat in the area.

Recreation

With 136 miles of shoreline, Belton Lake offers a wide variety of recreation activities, and there is no shortage of family activities at Cedar Ridge. The facility has two multi-lane boat ramps with courtesy loading docks, a large lighted fishing dock, a designated family swimming beach, a playground, basketball court and hiking trails. Hawks, Great blue herons, ducks, geese, many species of songbirds, bobwhite quail, Rio Grande turkey and even an occasional bald eagle visit the lake area, yielding year-round opportunities for birders.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
