We were at Lake Whitney State Park near Whitney, Texas with our camping group, the North Texas Camping Association, in February 2017. They have 40 full hookup, pull through, shaded sites in the Horseshoe Camping Area. We were in site 34. They also have some water/electric RV sites nearer the lake. There are a couple of good hiking trails. Whitney is nearby with restaurants, groceries and fuel. Walmart 15 miles away in Hillsboro. We've been here many times and will return.

Daingerfield State Park Texas is one of our favorite Texas State Parks. 140 miles northeast of Dallas. Beautiful clear, spring fed lake with no motorized boats allowed. Great swimming area. Canoes, kayaks and paddle boats for rent. The park was built by the CCC in the 1930's. Many original structures and buildings remain. Nice hiking trails, a couple are strenuous. All RV sites have full hookups (W/E/S). Three RV camping loops, Big Pine, Dogwood, and Mountain View. Only Big Pine is suitable for 30+' RV's. Mountain View and Dogwood best for less than 30' RV's. We were in site 10 in Big Pine, our favorite lakefront site. We've been here many times and will return.

We stayed at Abbeville RV Park in Abbeville, Louisiana for a few nights. Nice city park with full hookups, $24/night. Friendly and helpful park host. The Tabasco Factory and Rip Van Winkle Gardens are worth visiting. Beautiful Cajun country. Great local food. Palmetto Island State Park is another good option for the area, but 10 miles further out from stores and restaurants. We would stay here again.

We stayed at Lake Murray State Park, Elephant Rock campground in December 2016. Were in site 27. Our site was a pull through with full hookups. Shady site. Ours was in the non-reservable section of Elephant Rock Campground. Some sites are reservable and some have lake views. Beautiful area with much to see. Grocery and Walmart in Ardmore, OK. We will definitely return.

Red Rock Canyon State Park is near Hinton, Oklahoma just south of I-40. Nice park with nice sites and hiking trails. Beautiful shallow canyon with red rock walls.

They have a few full hook-up sites. We would stay here again.

Sunset Point RV Resort is on Lake LBJ just west of Marble Falls, Texas. It is a nice, well maintained, gated, private RV park. We were in premium site #32 with a great view and access to the lake. Rate $63/night for full hookups. Only negatives: low water pressure (<40psi) and slow Tengonet wifi. It is next to historic Wirtz dam. The park has a mini Enchanted Rock that is great to hike and view the sunset. Highly recommend. We will definitely return.
