Old, junked up campground. We had reservations but forfeited our payments as it was just too dirty and junky to feel safe in staying. Owner very friendly, but the campground was nearly full of rigs permanently or near permanently parked. Just not acceptable for us.

Great City park with 20 RV sites with water & 50/30/15 amp pedestals, and another 46 tent sites. Roads & Parking Spots are asphalt. Parking Spots are wide, but not real long. All are back-in. Tight Roads, but do-able. Entrance road has lots of hills and curves and is 2-lane. Roads could use some maintenance. Our site was right on the water at Lake Austin. We like staying there, just wish it was easier to get into. All sites are first come, first serve and there is an extra vehicle charge, $5 M-T, $8 F-S & Holidays. Get in mid-week & you should not have a problem getting a site. Check the sites before you pay to be sure you can fit if you are in a diesel pusher.

Great RV campground at Lake Palestine. Relatively new. Has good sized sites, newer electric, water and sewer hookups. Cable TV was coming, but not yet there. We stayed there for a 3 day weekend while visiting family. The site we had was a back-in at the front of the campground for short term stays. The sites were covered in smooth river gravel and easy to walk on. No fire rings and no picnic tables, just basic level sites with good utilities. There were a lot of seasonal campers, some full timers, and some construction workers settled in for monthly rentals. The campground was clean and quiet. They had a great grass covered and fenced dog park area, new laundry and shower rooms and were slowly improving and expanding. The owners live on site and are great to deal with. They only take checks or cash and give a 10% senior discount. Rates were $25.00 daily, $150.00 weekly and $275.00 + elec. monthly. They are across highway from Emerald Bay on Lake Palestine, close to services, fishing, sailing, golf, etc. We find it very convenient and will stay there again for sure.
