The Great Outdoors

Gun Barrel City is located on the banks of Cedar Creek Lake, which offers excellent opportunities for outdoor recreation. The 18-mile long reservoir is the fourth-largest lake in Texas and covers over 32,000 acres. The shoreline extends to 320 miles and offers excellent fishing from both the bank and by boat. Anglers will find a wide range of species to catch, including catfish, various bass, and crappie, but the lake is known for its record size largemouth bass.There are several marinas and public boat ramps around the shoreline, and plenty of places where you can rent a boat. All types of boating can be enjoyed on the lake, from sailing, powerboating to canoeing and kayaking. There's loads of space, several islands to explore, and numerous coves and inlets.The area is also great for hiking, and in the nearby Purtis Creek State Park, you'll find a variety of trails to get you out exploring. The Wolfpen Hike and Bike Trail is a 4.5-mile loop that starts and finishes at the lakeside but also takes you up into the surrounding woodland. It's an easy trail with only short, gentle slopes, so perfect for the whole family. A slightly shorter trail is the Beaver Slide Nature Park Loop, covering just over 1.5 miles. Most of the path is on the lakeside, giving lovely views, plus there are information boards along the route.

The park is spread over two adjacent locations, has playgrounds for the kids, walking trails, sports pitches, and picnic areas for a great family day out.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


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.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


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.


How does check-in work?


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.
