  • The rv spots are on nice cement spots. We didn't camp on the lake and our spot was very large & private. Full hook up for your camper is convenient. There are only 3 trails in this park. They are nice...  more »

  • Beautiful lake views, excellent wildlife viewing for those feeling spry and intrepid, great cabins for folks who aren't into tent camping. There is a bath house that has been broken for 6 months, but there are other bath houses in the campground, to which most folks will probably want to drive. A minor inconvenience, but one that ought to be remedied by now. Great covered picnic tables in each leveled, grassy site made tent set up and all around use really easy and comfortable.
  • Large pull thru RV spots with full hookups. A bit open but an abundance of trees. It is early spring and the trees still bare but I could just imagine the beauty and shade in the summer. There is a lack of brush around camp sites which gives you no privacy to speak of. Quiet park because of the space. Kayaking. No. Water really rough and I noticed not many boaters or fishers. Very large lake with clear water. Looks really deep. Good but small swimming area with a couple of small play grounds with swings. Recommended.
  • first time here, they have self pay at the gate which is pretty easy. Nice swim area with picnic tables. Clean restrooms and showers for campers! Boat ramp and dock where nice but not a lot of parking for boaters.
  • The ladies at the front office are so sweet and very helpful. Nice place.. Have really enjoyed
  • Really enjoyed the State Park. As usual here in Texas, it was well kept and very clean. Very dark at night, with excellent places to setup your telescope to explore the night sky. Milky Way is very visible on typical nights. Would have been five stars but we never did come across much of a playground area near the camping areas. We will take our RV here often as it is only a 90 minute drive.
