  • Staff at front office is enough to make you go somewhere else... if you can overlook the front office, then it's a basic camping place, it does allow some privacy, and some sites are nicer, and more l...  more »
  • This was our first visit to the park and we had a wonderful time. We camped in our RV and found our campsite clean, big and secluded. The hiking trails were very nice and well maintained. The staff wa...  more »
  • Such a great place to camp with our travel trailer. Good camping spots, trees all around so the sun does not beat down on you. Great place for families. Office staff so friendly and helpful.  more »

  • The State Park and Lake is very nice and well kept. We went for fishing. We went to town to get minnows and goldfish and there are no bait shops open Sunday. We had to drive on the other side of Gun Barrel Lake to the Marina which was another 20 minutes and 20 back. We stayed 5 hours without a bite. I really liked the fishing piers and at night they are lit up with LED flood lights. We saw several deer playing tag. Awesome! The camoing spots look nice and theu have sand volleyball. If we ever go again, I hope for better luck on fishing.
  • We've been here several times. Always have a good time. There is a small beach area with bathrooms/showers close. The kids did some hiking thru the woods. Trails didn't seem very impressive. The park isn't huge. Our RV campsite was clean. Power and water worked just fine. The restrooms were clean when we checked in on Friday. The fishing pier was crowded but that's because we were there on a beautiful weekend.
  • Park was well kept and campsite was nice except FLEAS AND TICKS ARE HORRIBLE! I had ticks on me and the dogs. I’m now Spending the day washing and dusting dogs. Flea and tick drops Work great but the parasites live for about 48 hours. Just enough time to contaminate campers and homes.
  • Awesome! Was there yesterday..saw 1 buck and 6 white tail does at sunset. I live 10 miles away and that's one of the many reasons I buy the annual state park pass
  • Purtis Creek is the worst fishing lake on the planet earth. Supposedly it was made for the sole purpose of fishing. Whoever was responsible for that happen sucks. I've been fishing there probably 7 times and have caught maybe 3 tiny fish. It's really just a big pool of diarrhea... Any other lake in the whole of East Texas is better than this oversized toilet. Please, if you value your time don't waste it at Purtis Creek. Jesus literally cries everytime someone is fooled into going to Purtis Creek.
