Reviews for Fields of New Market Campground

Todd Mission, Texas

 Great weekend

Review by Rudy on 11/25/18 11:37 AM

We arrived to our campsite on Friday around 3PM. There was plenty to do and see. Our glamping campsite was great. We had booked the queen size tent and it was a great way to be introduced to camping. The bed was very comfortable. We brought extra blankets which helped with the cold winds. Our only two complaints were the port-a-cans were trashed more often than they were clean-- there was actual poop along the rim of the toilet. And we had no light source inside our tent (tent 7)-- we had to go to the store and buy a flash light. Besides that, it was an incredible experience. Perfect location to hear the party but not too loud that we couldn't sleep.

 November glamping at the Ren Fest.

The tents are nice and roomy on the inside. The queen size bed was comfortable. It was nice not having to set up a complete camp site. My wife and I faced some cool temps on our stay. The wind on Friday evening was blowing out of the North right at our tents front flap. I suggest bringing extra blankets. We set up a fire pit , cooked some food and made the best of the cold weather. On Saturday we enjoyed the festival and made use of the shuttle to and from the entrance. Saturday night as expected there were people parting into the night with the associated noise. I would recommend glamping to anyone that wants to camp with out all of the work.

My review of camping at the Fields of New Market is on the fence. One one hand, the amenities were very pleasant. The pre-pitched tents at Glamalot were wonderful. The bed was comfortable, and the surroundings were very nice. We had some very nice neighbors to one side that were very welcoming. However, to the other side of us was a newly wedded couple that was not the picture of wedded bliss. On Saturday night, they returned back to their campsite (after what I assumed was a night out partying at the after-hours party) arguing very aggressively. About every hour on the hour, the woman of the couple would wake up and verbally berate the man, who wasn't saying much. We would be subject to listening to about 20-30 minutes of yelling and name calling before she went back to sleep. This occurred three times from 1am to 3am. Another complaint was the complete disregard that other patrons leaving the after-hours party had for campers who were winding down, relaxing, or sleeping. We had a group near us who returned to their campsite around 2am who insisted on talking at a ridiculously loud level. From our tent, we heard someone from security come and tell them to lower their volume. Once the security personnel left, they continued to yell, cut-up, and laugh very loudly for another hour. I get that the campgrounds are a fun, party environment. However, there should also be a level of respect for other campers. The noise levels, to my understanding, were supposed to be lowered after the after-hours party. For other patrons, to not respect this is unfortunate and made us feel unwelcome. I feel as though there should be more security throughout the campground to keep campers in order. If I return, it will be to the family camping, even though I don't have children.

 Great Experience

Review by Sagegirl on 11/4/18 6:53 AM

I arrived on Friday evening and was happy to to find my tent with a secure lock & code, a decent size accent rug, two chairs, table, bench, and a queen size platform bed & mattress that was made up with a sheet set, two pillows and a blanket. There was a small battery powered lamp, but I would suggest you bring both extra lighting and extra blankets (it's very cold at night). Outside, the tents are set up like a little village. My tent was near a fire pit. The port a potties were a short distance away and all parking is best alongside the edge of the roads. I temporarily parked my car in front of tent to unload/load. The one thing I wish was available, was when you rent the tents, to see a map with all the numbered tents and location. Marked Queen or cots, simply because the cots are situated differently in the campgrounds. You also can only hope your neighbors can be quiet so you can enjoy the beautiful natural setting. I found it a bit pricey, I paid about $350+ for two nights. That's a bit ridiculous, Can't wait to glamp next year, but only if the pricing is reduced a bit.

 Great space

We booked a queen tent for our honeymoon weekend, and were very happy with the accommodations. The "cot" had a wooden base and a real mattresses which is a pleasant surprise. There was plenty of room for us and our stuff without feeling cramped at all.
