Check-in & Check-out

We know you’re excited to get here, and we’ll be ready to welcome you promptly starting at 2pm each day (for daily, weekly, and extended-stay guests). If you prefer to check-in in person, we’re awaiting your arrival between 2pm-6pm each day. Contactless, after hours check-in, is available all night, although we prefer that all guests arrive before quiet hours begin at 10pm. We know you’ll be sad to leave, but check-out is 12pm the day after the final night of your paid reservation. Come back soon!

You’ll receive your temporary gate code to enter the property in your pre-arrival email the day before you check-in, as well as in your pre-arrival text message on the day of your arrival.

You may proceed directly to your designated RV site upon arrival. We’ll make sure that your pre-arrival email and text message explain all relevant check-in information, including your gate code, confirmed RV site number, policies, resort map, wifi information, hours of amenities, etc.

When you arrive on-site, drive through the entrance gate toward the Clubhouse. Just before you get to the Clubhouse there are two temporary RV parking spaces on your left. You may park in this area for up to 15 minutes. Don’t worry, we’ll have more time to chit-chat during your stay:)

You’re a key to making Gather Campgrounds an awesome place to stay, so please make sure to leave your site clean and free of trash. We’ll be happy to come by and dispose of your trash bag, so upon departure may leave your full trash bag at the front of your site and one of our team members will dispose of it. Otherwise you’re all set to leave!

Doesn’t everyone love a late check-out?! We’d love to accommodate this request, and space permitting, you might just get lucky. A late check-out may be available if another guest is not checking-in to your current site that same day. Please visit a team member in our Camp Store or text 254-236-2866 to learn if a late check-out is possible. Depending upon the time of your departure, late check-out fees may apply.

Bookings & Rates

We’d love to host you for a tour to check out our campground, so please schedule a visit in advance by sending our manager an email at Our goal is to give you our full attention during your tour, so please plan for a weekday visit.

At the time of your booking, you’ll have the opportunity to choose a specific site and pay for a site lock, guaranteeing that you’ll stay in that specific site. If you opt out of the site lock fee, you are guaranteed your selected site type, but NOT that specific site. We encourage groups to use site-lock if it’s important for you to stay next to one another.

Extended-stay guests are welcome to stay at a monthly rate provided they adhere to all campground rules and continue to be respectful and orderly to everyone in our community. Please email our manager for rates and availability

Our rates vary depending upon demand for our daily, weekly, and extended stay spaces. We do not guarantee any rates until you’ve booked and paid for your reservation using our online reservation system.

Just like a hotel, rates at Gather Campground change as demand and availability change. No rates are guaranteed until your reservation is processed and payment is received. You will receive an email confirmation when your reservation is confirmed, typically within one hour of booking.

When you make your reservation using our online reservation system you’ll pay the full amount of the reservation at the time of booking.

You’re welcome to have up to eight guests stay at your RV site (only one RV per site). If you have more than eight individuals in your group, you will need to book additional RV sites.

You may keep two vehicles at your campsite, parked in the designated parking spaces immediately in front of your RV or trailer and in front of the picnic area. Although we’d love to accommodate more, there is no space for additional vehicles.

We welcome small trailers if they fit into one of the two parking spots that you’re allocated at your campsite. If you have a larger trailer that does not fit into a single parking spot you’ll be required to rent an additional RV site for the trailer, or keep it off-site.

No. Sleeping tents are not allowed at Gather Campgrounds. Only one RV or trailer is allowed at each site. You could pop up the tent inside your RV, for an unusual camping experience 😉

Yes, we welcome you to make yourself at home at your site and enjoy your own shade tents, tables, chairs and lawn games.

Yes, although we may ask you to cut us off a slice of that brisket! You’re welcome to use your own grill or smoker, please just be mindful of the smoke you may be creating for other guests.

If you’d like to extend your stay with us please visit with one of our team members in our Camp Store between 10am and 6pm or text us at 254-236-2866. Depending upon availability, we may not be able to accommodate your request to extend your reservation, or, you may need to move to a different campsite. 

Creep up to the gate as if you’re trying to win a game of ‘how slow can you drive’. As you SLOWLY approach the gate it will begin to open for you.

First, try shouting ‘Open Sesame’. If that doesn’t work, please either turn around and visit us in the Camp Store, or text us between 10am and 6pm at 254-236-2866.

Generally, we’re afraid of ghosts. Secondly, we like to protect the privacy, peacefulness, and security of our guests and their property.

Our refund policy varies depending on when you notify us that you’d like to cancel and how many days out that is from your check-in date.

  • If you’re more than 14 days away from your check-in date, you receive a full refund, less a $25 cancellation fee.
  • If you’re 8-13 days away from your check-in date, you receive a 50% refund, less a $25 cancellation fee.
  • If you’re fewer than 7 days from your check-in date, you do not receive a refund.

Simply bring your valid Military or Veteran ID to the Camp Store anytime between 10am-6pm to receive your discount refunded off of your booking. We do not accept AAA, Good Sam Club, or any other club discounts.

Emergency Assistance

If there’s an emergency related to fire, medical, or crime, call 911 immediately. If there’s an emergency related to leaking water, no electricity at your site, a clogged drain pipe, or some other item related to the physical property, text our emergency line at 254-236-2866.

We serve guests each day with on-site team members from 10am through 6pm. You may virtually reach members of our team from 8-10am and from 6-9pm by texting 254-236-2866.

Pets & Animals

We allow non-dangerous dogs, cats under 20 pounds, and non-hunting birds. Dogs and cats must be kept on a leash at all times, unless the dog is in the dog park. Cats are not allowed in the dog park. Birds must be kept in a cage at all times. If your dog is seen to be aggressive and/or creating a nuisance or unease for other guests a team member may ask you to keep your dog inside your RV (non-compliance may result in the termination of your stay without refund). All guests with dogs must sign this waiver before check-in.

No. All dogs must be kept on-leash in the park unless they are inside the dog park with the fence gate closed.

Animals are not allowed in the pool area, the playground, the restrooms, nor any building. The primary areas for animals are walking through the campground (on leash) on streets and in grassy areas, as well as in the dog park.

Yes, there are doggy stations scattered around the park, including inside the dog park. Scoop your dog’s poop, or you’ll be looking to scoop a last-minute RV spot somewhere else. 

Please dispose of animal poop in the doggy station trash bins, dumpsters, and/or your personal trash bags at your site. Do not dispose of any dog poop in trash containers that reside inside or immediately outside buildings or the pool area.

Yes, you are allowed to put up a temporary dog fence at your site. Dogs may not be left unattended in the fenced area.

On-Site Sales

Yes, we sell propane during open Camp Store hours of 10am to 6pm.

The Gather Campground store is open each day from 10am to 6pm. You may order online at any time by visiting and we will deliver items to your campsite during 10am to 6pm.

We sell camp necessities and more! Items available during Camp Store hours include: propane, ice, beer, wine, snacks, basic cooking supplies, basic RV supplies, and locally-sourced gifts and keepsakes.

Yes. All bookings will be charged electricity separately from the rate for the site, regardless of the booking duration. Electricity is charged at a rate of 12 cents / kWh. We are able to offer extremely competitive rates and availability for the Belton area by separating electricity usage from site rates. In an era of growing electric vehicle (EV) usage, we want to ensure each guest pays just for their fair share of power. Building dramatically different energy usage into site rates just isn’t sensible nor equitable. Welcome to the future!

Yes, we do have a limited number of storage units that our guests can rent. Please speak with a Gather team member in our office from 10am to 6pm to see if there’s availability. No storage for live animals, chocolate or ice sculptures, or salt-water taffy (bring the taffy to the Camp Store to share with us!)

Rules & Regulations

Yes, you are welcome to string lights at your campsite. You may not put up and use any form of lights that directly point at another guest’s campsite, like spotlights. You may not tie anything to trees, including string lights.

We encourage guests to enjoy music at a volume that’s respectful to other nearby guests. If your music is too loud, you may be asked to reduce the volume. Quiet hours are 10pm to 10am, daily.

Guests must obey all federal, state, and local laws regarding the ownership and possession of firearms. Guests may have a firearm in a locked, private vehicle in parking areas if permitted by law. Firearms are not permitted in any buildings or common areas. The discharge of firearms, BB guns, air guns/rifles, or similar devices is strictly prohibited. Firearms may not be carried openly anywhere on the property.

Failing to do so may result in a termination of the guest’s reservation without refund. Guests may not operate any motorized vehicle while under the influence of drugs.

Any motorized or power-assisted device must follow the 5mph speed limit throughout the park at all times. Failing to do so may result in a termination of the guest’s reservation without refund.
