We spent one night here on our way out of Texas. On a Tuesday, we had the whole park to ourselves. There are no trees for shade but the picnic tables are covered. The sites are level and you have an o... read more »
Just as most Texas state parks, it is well maintained. The campsites were nice and large. It is in near west Texas, so tress and shade is a little sparse. Campsites are not near the lake, but some hav... read more »
At 4 bucks a person we were going to drive through to check it out, but with 4 people we weren't going to spend 16 bucks just to drive through and look around while we were killing time one day... sor... read 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.
Seemingly nice looking park that we visited on the 4th of July to go kayaking but the water in the lake is very LOW, there were several spots that felt like I was dragging the bottom. For a holiday weekend this park was practically empty but without sufficient water in the lake I can understand why. The ladies at the front gate were nice.
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.
