  • Nice, cozy place. The office staff were sooooo wonderful to us and very very informative! There is a shop at the office for cute souvenirs. They include the children in any park fun there is. Bathrooms and showers were clean. My only complaint was not enough air flow in bathrooms and on the campsite. But water was great and fishing was good!
  • Although essentially upon arrival, the sky opened up on us, we were fortunate enough to have the patience to wait of out. After about an hour, the sky held its tears back long enough for us to explore the park a bit until the sun finally escaped from its captor clouds to bid us all a beautiful farewell to what easily could have otherwise simply seemed like a waste if we'd turned around and headed back home due to the unexpected deluge. Moral of the story: don't let a summer shower do more than momentarily delay your adventures.
  • I love camping here. Always very clean. Water is low for swimming area but still able to swim. Great staff.
  • Lake Tawakoni is a very nice park . Stayed three nights . Well kept campground . Lake is beautiful. Loved seeing all the different birds especially the Eastern Bluebirds . Hiked all the 5 miles of trails which are all very well done . Great place for fishing as well.
  • Nice park, went during the week so it was very quiet. Bugs were a little out of control, but it was spring. We couldn't find a place to fish, so was a little disappointed with that.
