This is a COE (Corp of Engineers Park). We stayed there in April 2014 and the day use areas were closed because they are in a drought and the lake was very low. It was an okay park especially for the discounted price with picnic tables, grill and fire rings at each site. The concrete pads need some repair and mowing needed to be done. There were also tent campers. The COE has other parks on this lake. One or two of them have 50 amp but not sewer (dump station available). We selected this park so we could do some laundry. I did a load the first night with no problems. The next morning I started just the dryer and it kept throwing the circuit breaker. My husband kept resetting it and finally went to tell them there must be a problem. It was a Saturday and unlike a regular RV park no one worked on weekends to fix it. Nice views and walking if you enjoying being around water. Note: we do carry an adaptor cord for 30 amp hook-ups.

The Victoria RV Park is city owned and operated and is a part of the park system which includes the Texas State Zoo. There are sidewalks and also hiking paths within a beautiful wooded area. Deer abound in the area and are in the open fields near the RV’s almost every morning and evening. We also saw several cranes. What makes this park truly exceptional is full hook-ups for $12 a night. It's a great stopover if you have been boondocking and need to stop and do laundry, fill your water, etc. If you are in the area and need to dump that is only $2.
If you need TV service we while in the area we also highly recommend Al at Apache Television Repair. We had a TV under warranty and they worked with us and the company to have the part overnighted. They were there when the shipment arrived the next morning, came directly to our RV and fixed it within minutes. That is great customer service, especially since they may never see us again.
If you are like to visit cemeteries there is one across the street with many old tombstones.
There is also day access for the beach and they had just opened a public restroom.

Only an hour away from Victoria, TX, the examiner.com reports that Magnolia Beach is a hidden gem and is well known among the Canadian Winter Texans, especially those from Quebec. When we were there probably 85% of the RV’s had Quebec or Canadian license plates. It looked like many of them also fished on a daily basis.
This beach lover’s Boondocking paradise is actually on Lavaca Bay and is a shell beach. Even my husband who isn't a water fan said "this is very peaceful". There are areas where you can park a few feet from the beach that have covered picnic tables and then other areas where you can park right on the beach (shown in the photo above). When sitting on the bed and looking out the bedroom window I felt like I was on a cruise since all I could see was the water.
It’s a historical area, where the German’s first came ashore in xxxx. Be sure to also see the statue at Indianola Beach.
