Recently retired from the Marines, and after being in the field for 23 years, I miss camping. So now I am enjoying the experience with my family and dogs.

We came here on a recommendation from a friend and am so happy we did. This is the nicest RV park in Red River. Everyone was so nice, and the staff was amazing. Hubby was changing propane tanks for the RV in the dark, and a camp host/ RV park attendant came by with a flash light and was super nice. He told us there was a refill station on site, and how to get it on the list for a refill. Just so nice. We never use a dog park ever, but this park was so well taken care of that we tried it, and that is where the boys tried to run off to anytime they could. It was easy to come and go, we had a code to use late at night so we were safe and not restricted. There was a great little store on the property for little things you might forget, like laundry soap. We used the laundry mat, and forgot soap, the store was a life saver. The laundry mat was clean, and had a great little bench to sit outside and watch the world go by while waiting for your laundry. Everyday, we saw ducks in the little river that runs through the park and deer twice a day came to the same area to say high to everyone. I could go on for days but I think the computer and you will hate me so I will finish it up with.... Trust me. Go here, don't think about another place, you will kick yourself. Even the locals said we were in the best park in town. Check it out, if there closed for the year, call them..... make the reservations early, they were booked up when we were there and summer wasn't even in full swing yet. BTW don't want to tell my site number, it was so awesome, it may not be available when we want it next time. We camped at Roadrunner RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Check out..... Bob's pass mountain adventures - great company and had a great time with them. Rent an ATV and go to Goose Trail, Pioneer trail, and then up to the lakes. Renting an ATV was worth every dime. Check out Anchovies Pizza - good food.

We visited several parks in the area and we were amazed at how clean and well kept the state parks were. I can not find my pictures that we took but we were right next to the boat ramp but was never bothered or heard any loud boats. The Bath house was so clean, and new. The water was super hot which was nice after an active day but be careful with kids. The neighbors were respectful, the fire was amazing, and just looking out at the water and chilling. We camped at Daisy State Park in a Travel Trailer.
They have boat ride type of tours which we did not make but if we had the kids with us would have been fun for everyone. No kids means sleeping in.

Stayed for a couple of days. The area was not bad, the park was clean, and the trails were taken care of. Really enjoyed the Penn Farm area, and did not do any fishing. Swimming was closed, and one of the larger camping grounds was closed. There is an Ant problem, and we actually went to Walmart (only 8 min away) to buy more ant stuff just to make sure we did not get infested. Will I be going back, probably not. Sites were OK, nothing to get excited about, they did have 50 amps and sewer. But, I was really disappointed watching very large campers trying to get into tiny spots because a pop up camper, or a tent took a large parking space. There were entire areas with 30 amps for pop ups and even tent camping. Bring Ant poison with you, I knew they had a problem but did not know how bad it was until we got there. We had to put it all the way around just to make sure they did not crawl into the trailer or truck. It wasn't fun. The picnicking areas are not always near the parking spots, at least ours was not and there was not enough room to have a table or sitting area for dinners out side. BTW 209 & 208 are perfect if you have two families who are camping together, our picnic tables were very close to the point we might as well have eaten together. Not what you are looking for when you want to get away. Also, you could hear more of the highway traffic when you sat outside than you did crickets. Just wasn't super impressed with the experience, the grounds, or the amenities. We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Clean park, good hiking (it does have some over grown areas after about 5 miles into the trail.) Newly renovated sites, and same with showers. The west side had a boat ramp, dump station, a pier for fishing, and lots of space for kids to play. Will go back in a heart beat. We camped at Juniper Point COE in a Travel Trailer.
Take fire ant poison, they were really bad but then again, it's Texas. We also had to pick up additional mosquito spray. Town is very small, has a small gas station, and a dollar general. Nearest Walmart is 30 min away. Did not see ant places to eat, but we came for the peace and quiet which is what we found.
