We stopped at this park as we camped across Texas. Really enjoyed the fact that it was out of the way and secluded. We stayed at an electric site at the back end of the park and had the place to ourse... more »
We needed a place to stay along I-20 from North Texas to New Mexico and this was a very nice place to stay. October is the off season and the park was very quiet, we got a spot right on the lake. Ther... more »
We took our toddlers here twice. I would not pay for a day pass. It is really only worth it if you want to camp as there wasn't that much to too or see. There was a burn ban, but most people were hack... more »
If your looking for a peaceful place to camp with friendly staff and nice cabins this is your place. The lake is low but still nice for swimming or kayaking. Mary at the front desk is super friendly and helpful. Had a great time and will be back. To those complaining about bugs and bathrooms that are not like a hotel, get over it! ITS CAMPING!!
Camping here tonight, and after more than 3 weeks of travel through the States (Dakotas, Wyoming, Montana,Arizona etc), I haven't seen a worse State Park campsite than this one. Even the most remote State Park campsites with latrines and no running water were ultra clean and well maintained, in comparison to this one. The leaking showers flooding the bathroom floor offer no privacy whatsoever and the restrooms have obviously not been cleaned (cockroaches and other insects abound). The picnic tables are filled with cobwebs, fire pit hasn't been emptied in forever. The worst part of all of this is that the park gates close at 7 PM and lock campers in! Maybe the cabins or other areas of the park are fine, otherwise I can't understand the good reviews.
We love Texas State Parks. I believe there is something to see in each one of them. At first arrival, the campsites appear well kept. They were mowed down, the picnic areas were clean and free of spiderwebs (which is unusual). The lake is low and not very visible from any campsite, but if you take the time to wander down to the boat docks and beach area, there is some beauty. On my walk today, I came across beautiful bluebonnets, a little beach with sea shells, and even an armadillo! This is not the most beautiful place we've been to, but it's nice for a couple of nights. I would imagine as the weather gets warmer, the little "beach" will be a fun place to visit.
This state park has been hard hit by an extended drought, BUT the amazing park superintendent, Kyle O'Haver, has gone above and beyond at making the best of the situation! He has come in and cleaned and made repairs and upgrades. He has such initiative and follow -through on great ideas: he has started a "friends of the park" group, junior rangers, bird watching, hiking, and geocaching and star watching! He took a lake that was not suitable for motorboats (due to the low water level) and has brought in kayaks and raised a huge level of interest in the sport that can be done on a quiet lake with no motorboats! **Recently, I hosted a national caravan of Sisters on the Fly -- there were over 60 of our in rvs from all over Texas and the US-- Kyle and the staff were just over-the-top great at welcoming them and accommodating our needs. This state park got rave reviews from the attendees and Kyle, Martha, and Mary are the reasons! Please take the negative reviews on this page with caution-- they appear to blame the park superintendent for the acts of nature, the results of a drought, and the presence of natural critters (spiders) --- For a semi-arid region, this is a great little state park! And the superintendent cannot be commended enough!
Qyiet, secluded. Clean showers and restrooms. Friendly staff. I will DEFINITELY be back.
