Nice place but there could be more for family and kids to do. When it is warm enough the spring feed pool nice. Pretty interesting local history.

Definetly a sweet spot. The rooms could do a remodel and it would have been. A destination. Other than that can't complain. Played golf, went to the... More

We made reservations for the RV park here. It is awful!!!! The whole place is rundown. Broken glass windows out of the old fort buildings. The RV park is way in the back and it was horrible! I cannot believe they would want to rent this place out to anyone. There were mostly full timers. One had a refrigerator outside... More

My husband and I stayed at the fort in humble motel accommodations. The springs on the grounds were such a welcome respite from the Texas heat. Well maintained and laid back surroundings had huge oaks to set up chairs, etc. We will return, for sure.

Very historical place with tons of knowledgeable people to tell people about the Fort from the very beginning. A lot of the building are still in use today from when John Wayne filmed The Alamo.

We went to Fort Clark for "Fort Clark Days" when many people try to recreate how Fort Clark looked during the 1800s. Many people in costume tried to show and tell what life was like at the Fort. You can ride in an open wagon while a tour guide shows you the entire fort. The most fascinating part to us... More

Nice RV park - very quiet, friendly host. Site is nice & flat (no leveling required). Restrooms/showers are old but clean. The fort itself is an interesting visit with lots of history. Did not try the on-site restaurant this time; was a disappointment on previous trip.

The natural historical setting for this swimming pool is just. So relaxing. The guest are pleasant and wild life plentiful. It is so worth the trip and I will go again.
