I have been on the river for 25 years and this was the most disappointing trip ever. We made reservations for KL Ranch camp on river rd. along the Gaudalupe River. for 3 nights. We arrived at noon and made our way into the gates down the un-paved dusty dirt road to our site. We made camp in site 94 and parked parallel to the river. We arrived on Saturday expecting the river to be full of tubers and it was. Drunk dirty mouthed tubers with no regaurd to families with children attempting to ignore the offensive language and indecent exposure. There are no full hook-ups and the worst part are the bathrooms. They are stinking dirty and run down. The campsites are full everyday of the week all summer they are making a killing and are not doing anything to improve the camping area. Most of the sites are not shaded and no effort to water the tender trees trying to survive. We showered from our outside utility shower and found that more appealing than the dirty bathrooms. Apon returning from dinner at 11;00 one night from Gruene, we found the gates locked and we could not get back into our campsite. This was an oversight we later learned there was a sign posted stating we must return to our campsite no later than 10;30 or the gates would be locked. After driving around for sometime trying to find someone to open the gate a young man came down in let us in,but not before reminding us of the rule in a disrespectful manner. I have never been locked into any camping area or been given a curfew, I don't think that's safe to be locked in. We left a day early disappointed, I know they are making money on the river and it saddens me that people are that greedy to not make any improvements with their profits. The river and terrain are beautiful I hope for rain for the river to fill the banks and for New Braunsfels to clean up the drunks. I'll go back another time to another place but not KL untill they change.
