Hallettsville City Park

Located on the northern outskirts of the town, Hallettsville City Park campground is in an excellent position for a rental RV city break. With numerous amenities close by, but in a quiet and wooded area, it could be the perfect spot for a relaxed RV camping vacation.The campground has almost 20 partial hook-up sites, all with water and electricity, but there are no pull-thru, only back-ins, and none of the sites allow slideouts.The on-site facilities are relatively basic, with restrooms, but no showers, although the kids will enjoy the playground. One bonus is that you can bring the family pet and there is plenty of room in the park for walkies.Situated midway between San Antonio, TX, and Houston, TX, and just a short drive from The Gulf Coast, Hallettsville City Park campground is an ideal base for exploring the wide-open spaces of this area.Great attractions such as the Houston Space Center, or The Alamo are within a reasonable driving distance. There is plenty to see and do in the area when you book an RV in Lavaca County.

Camping with an RV

The Great Outdoors

The RV campground is located within the City Park, which has a range of facilities to offer. Along with two playgrounds, there are tennis courts, baseball, and volleyball pitches, exercise stations, and a 9-hole golf course. For gentler exercise, there is a half-mile walking path around the park.A short drive from the RV Campground at Hallettsville City Park is Palmetto State Park. There's plenty of opportunities to swim here, with a small oxbow lake at the northern end of the park, and the San Marcos River flows through the center. If you'd prefer to get out on the water but stay dry, then try renting a kayak in the park, or try something new, such as stand-up paddleboarding.Fishing is allowed on both the river and lake, and you don't even need a license! If you don't have any gear, no problem as you can rent some in the park. Hiking is popular in the park, with numerous short trails to follow, which interlink to give several hours of hiking. None of the trails are challenging, so good for the whole family and your four-legged friend if you keep them on a lead.Palmetto State Park is also known for its excellent birdwatching, thanks to the forest and swamp habitats that exist here. Hundreds of species have been seen in the park, so there will always be something to spot. You can download a spotting guide from the park's website.

Exploring the Area

The town of Hallettsville has everything you need for a great motorhome camping vacation, with plenty of grocery stores, cafes, and restaurants, some of which are within walking distance of the campground.While visiting Hallettsville, call into the Lavaca Historical Museum, which is near the entrance to the City Park. The museum opened in 1990, intending to preserve the history and culture of Lavaca County. The museum has exhibits on many different aspects of life in the county, including a Homestead Exhibit, the importance of the military here, Texas cattle and the rodeo. It's an intriguing look back at the past.Every year in September, the town hosts the annual one-day Kolache Festival that started in 1994 and is still going strong. The event begins with a 5k Fun Run in the morning and continues with a car show, arts and crafts, a parade with Kolache Queen, and of course, plenty of food and drink.A little way north of Hallettsville, just south of the city of La Grange, is the Kreische Brewery & Monument Hill State Historic Site. The site contains the remains of Texas soldiers that died in the Dawson Massacre of September 1842 and members of the Mier Expedition, that were killed in November 1842. The bodies were interred together, and a memorial erected to remember the sacrifices made during this period. In 1848, German settler Heinrich Kreiscge bought some of the lands, including the tomb, and built a home and his brewery. The brewery thrived and was one of the largest in Texas, but closed, just two years after his death, in 1884. The site is now open to the public, and you can wander around the 172-acre grounds, the ruins of the brewery, and visit the monument that marks where the tomb is.As we mentioned at the beginning, Houston is only a short drive east if you are RV camping at Hallettsville City Park, and it is undoubtedly well worth making an effort to visit. The home of the NASA shuttle project, there's plenty to see and do for the whole family.

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.
