Located along the banks of the San Saba River and under some stately pecan and oak trees about two miles from downtown San Saba is a small RV park that is perfect for a getaway or a camp and play golf weekend.
San Saba River RV Park is owned and operated by the City of San Saba and opened in 2008. Some of the sites are on a bank overlooking the small San Saba River, others are nestled under tall pecans and oaks, and a few are open.
The Park is located next to the fun and scenic San Saba River Golf Course and they offer a reasonable Golf Stay & Play Package.
The main road through the park and campsite is not paved but if firm and wide enough for big rigs to easily maneuver into any of the sites.
San Saba River RV Park is a work in progress and improvements and additions are continuously being made. For example, a new clubhouse was recently built and four new sites were added to the Park and the City is still making improvements as dollars become available.
San Saba River RV Park has 33 sites that are a combination of back-in and pull through. Each of the sites has 20/30/50 AMP service, cable, and water hookups. All but four of the sites have concrete patio and parking pads that are perfectly level. The sites range from open to well shaded under some large pecan and oak trees. All of the sites are long enough for the biggest rigs as well as a towed vehicle and they offer some breathing room with grass between each site - you don't get a cramped feeling like you do at some RV parks. Some of the sites have picnic tables.
A brand new clubhouse was recently finished and it is home to a laundry room, restrooms, dinning area and full kitchen, plus a great room with comfy couches, a satellite TV, and game tables.
The restrooms are fantastic - each one is private and has a sink, toilet, and shower and all were spotless when we visited.
Nestled under the trees is an open pavilion and adjacent to it is a large fire pit that is perfect for sitting around roasting marshmallows and telling ghost stories.
If you like to fish, then just a few steps from some of the RV sites is the San Saba River and we were told it has some huge catfish just waiting for you.
We had heard a couple good comments about the San Saba River Golf Course, so we decided to check it out and spend the night in the RV park on our way to a music festival in Llano.
We loved the RV park - quiet, peaceful, scenic, and well maintained - as well as the golf course. San Saba River Golf Course is a fun track that is challenging but fair, with reasonable rates, an excellent pace of play, and some fun holes.

Unfortunately we didn't have time to explore San Saba before heading out of town. We hope to return in the near future.
San Saba River RV Park is located about two miles from the Pecan Capital of The World, which offers a wide variety of delicious pecan treats at a variety of different stores close to downtown. The city has three public parks, the golf course, an historic downtown shopping district, and excellent fishing and hunting in the countryside surrounding it.
Mill Pond Park is a lovely park with a spring-fed lake and a man-made swimming pool. A waterfall cascades over rocks landscaped with ferns, moss, canna and caladium. The park is also home to baseball fields, tennis courts, a playground, a beach volleyball court, basketball courts, an all-weather track, and nature trails.
There are some local restaurants and we heard that Diggs Restaurant was the place to go for steaks and a cold beer. Visit the San Saba website to learn more about things to see and do.
