Junction Government Closes Schreiner City Park

According to City Secretary Garvene Adams, “RV camping is no longer allowed in the City of Junction Schreiner Park.” What does this all mean for RVers? On October 8, 2018, flash flooding from the Llano River in Junction, Texas, devastated the park. RVs were damaged, and four people went missing when their RVs were swept away. Rescuers attempted to find the lost campers, but they all died in the flooding. After that disaster the park was closed. However, it did re-open to free RV camping.

Junction’s Schreiner City Park was home to free gravel campsites. Camping was available year-round and welcomed guests staying in RVs and tents. All sites had picnic tables, water connections, and access to a bathhouse and playground. Although the campground had no hookups, RVers could easily get to the multiple onsite water spigots. Campers staying for more than one night could take advantage of the seasonal pool, disc golf, and basketball.
