Our recently renovated 21 space RV park includes full hook-ups with 50, 30 and 20 amp outlets and WiFi. Spacious and nestled amongst large burr oak and pecan trees, most of the sites are of the pull-through variety.
The campground is situated in the east end of Hico City Park, which straddles the Bosque River and spreads across 50 acres. The park includes 3 covered pavilions (available by reservation), picnic areas, a restroom/shower facility, a volleyball court, 2 playgrounds and a horseshoe area. Over a mile of paved hike and bike trails extends along the tree-lined, north bank of the river, circling around 2 baseball/softball fields, 1 T-ball/youth field, a large soccer field, a concession stand and an aquatic spray park. The City recently purchased some additional river-front property and is pursuing grant funding to double the size of the trail network. The park is open to the public year round and is the site of the annual Old Settlers' Reunion (3rd week in July) and the Hico Livestock Show (2nd or 3rd week in September).
An area Air Stream Club has taken advantage of the park's group rates the past two years, selecting it as the site of their fall excursion. They enjoyed the park, particularly the nice assembly area provided under the shelter of the long tabernacle.

Coming through Hico on Highway 6, turn south beside Cole's General Store onto South Elm Street. (If you would like to check-in at City Hall, it is the two story red brick building just south of Cole's at the northeast corner of South Elm and West 1st Street.) From Highway 6, go south 6 blocks, cross the bridge over the Bosque River (it has a gross weight limit of 16,000 lbs.) and enter City Park through the first gate on the left. Follow the road along the river to the RV campground. If the load capacity of the bridge is an issue, the RV Park can also be accessed from Highway 281 just south of town. Turn east onto Highway 1602. Go about 1/4 of a mile and take CR 209a, the first paved road to the left,---it turns into South Elm Street. Follow that road down to the river bottom, and the park will be on the right-hand side.
