Welcome Home to Leisure RV Resort!

on May 19, 2011

Sitting on the banks of the San Marcos River, Leisure Resort is the ideal place to vacation with family and friends while in Central Texas.  Relax in the shade of a pecan tree, float down the river in a tube, or simply enjoy the picturesque views of our countryside.  You’ll find our clean and quiet environment a welcome change from your hectic life.

Nestled among a 150 year old pecan orchard, Leisure RV Resort has been owned and operated by the same family since 1982.  Our core mission is to provide a superb natural environment for families to enjoy and reconnect with one another.  Our family-friendly resort offers a choice of accommodations sure to make your stay comfortable.  Stay in one of our Country Cabins or a treehouse.  Our RV sites are complete with full hook-ups, either back-in or pull thru sites.  If you feel like camping, pitch your tent in our camping area with connections or “rough it” at a spot by the riverside.  Whatever you choose you’ll be sure to enjoy all the pleasures  of country living and still be in close proximity to city conveniences.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Fentress, here are some points taken from a brochure that was written before 1917.

1.) Fentress is on the banks of the San Marcos River, 15 miles by commodious motor car service from San Marcos, on the I. &G. N. and the Katy railroads; by same car service, Luling being served by the San Antonio and Aransas Pass and Southern Pacific Railways.  Motor cars meet trains at the railroad points named.

While we no longer meet the trains with Motor cars, you won’t have a problem finding us in your RV.

2.)  Fentress town is a good market where campers can buy groceries, fresh meats, milk and butter, and all eatable desired.  Town and camp have electric lights.

Yes, we still have electric lights along with 30/50 amp plug ins and there are still plenty of places to purchase your groceries as well as restaurants for those days when you just don’t feel like cooking.

3.)  Expenses at Fentress

TENTS – 10×12, $5.00 per month; $1.50 per week; 50 cents for a single night.  A charge of $1.00 per week for ground is made to parties who wish to furnish their own tents

COTS – 25 cents

CAMP STOOLS – 15 cents per week

BATHING—25 cents, with suits and towels furnished 15 cents otherwise.  Weekly rate of $1.00, party furnishing everything.

TRANSPORTATION—round trip from San Marcos by splendid motor car service, $1.50.  Round trip from Luling by same service, $1.00.  For heavy hauling baggage, trunks, etc. 50 cents per hundred each way.

GASOLINE—for stoves, where campers desire it, may be had at regular market prices.

While the costs have gone up a bit since 1917, you will find that Leisure RV Resort in Fentress, Texas far surpasses your expectations both in amenities and in price.

Hope you will stop by and see us soon.
