An RV Park grew around the store, and Spring Creek was established in 1998. Today, the campground offers the best location for camping and water sports, with nearly 1,600 square acres of water to splash in.

Lee Brown says he was inspired to purchase an RV Park due to RVing with his children and discovering a passion for it. San Angelo offers a wide variety of attractions and events that draw in visitors around the world, especially those from the north who come to Texas for the winter.

Spring Creek Marina and RV Park offers 83 spacious RV sites, which can accommodate double slide outs and offer full hookups. Their pull-through sites are “big-rig” friendly.
