Quiet and peaceful

We were met at the gate and we were shown where to park. Very friendly we chatted for awhile and he ensured we had everything we needed for the night. As we were leaving this morning he met us before we left to ensure we had a good night. Highly recommend stopping for the night and if we are back this way again we will definitely stop if they have availability.

Perfect spot

This is a lovely place to spend the night. Easy access from the interstate, nice privacy, a big field where we could walk our dogs, power to hook up to, and best of all a wonderful host who met us in the driveway when we arrived. I hope to stay here again on future trips. Loved this spot.

Kids LOVED it!

Super super nice. They took us on 4 wheeler rides. We got a great site that was easy to pull in and out of. 5 star! (Dictated by the kids who enjoyed hours playing outside in the open field.)

Great Host, adventurous stay!

We really enjoyed meeting our host and he was very accommodating in providing 110 power and water. We felt very safe and comfortable in the parking spot provided and it was nice and quiet and we awoke to the sweet sounds of birds chirping.

Had a little problem when leaving that was unexpected due to our not taking a wide enough swing when pulling out and our RV got stuck in the mud. Our host was wonderful in helping is out by providing a shovel and lots of boards and we were able, thankfully, to get out without needing to call for a tow truck.

It was truly an adventure and we were thankful we were able to get out because things could have been worse. We will most certainly return to Howells Acres in the future the next time we're this way.

Wonderful host and nice spot, highly recommended! Take a wide turn if the ground is wet. 😀 Thanks Howells Acres for the adventure!

Wonderfull texas hospitality

Private site with 15amp and water hookups. Safe location. Very accommodating and friendly hosts. Firm, level, grassy site. We were able to park our trailer and set up quick even after a hard rain earlier that day. We enjoyed our brief stay and hope to return some day.
