Big sites with lots of grass and good for overnight. This is not a destination park unless you're going to the Kentucky Raceway nearby - electric hook-ups only with a water filling station and a dump station. If you need to stop and don't mind limited amenities it is pleasant. Be sure to call ahead. I'm not sure when their busy season is as we were the only ones in the park. The host, who was most friendly, had to meet us there to unlock the gate. Clean restrooms and showers but only one building for 300 sites. I imagine they are very busy during race times. Check photos on their web site to get an idea of layout. Last couple of miles on county road is a little narrow but not curvey or up-and-down. Frequent loud trains across the road.

Well kept park with lots of activities. Only five pull-throughs I could see for short term stay. Although there were some narrower sites than others, I didn't see any that I wouldn't want to stay long term. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. Could be alternative stop for access to South Texas amenities without the population congestion further south.

Construction mentioned in previous review is about 80% complete with most new sites available with new modern water and electric posts. No trash or construction debris in sight. Internal road and sites hard packed and level gravel. Some grass as dry weather conditions have allowed. New restrooms and showers complete and operational. Old clubhouse/office/store just moved up to front entrance. We'd stayed here a few years ago and expected to have one of the perfectly acceptable 'original' sites (shown to the right in the satellite view) but were pleasantly surprised with the new sites and facilities. Nightly rate was reduced to $31.50 to reflect Good Sam, even though I don't find them listed as a GS park. Would stay again, and might consider a longer term.

Inexpensive, good overnight spot with long big rig sites. Easy to get to, easy in and out with full hookups. Only 2 miles south of Cumberland Parkway (exit 62) on US 127. (3142 S. US Hwy 127).

Adequate stop for a couple of nights if you can live with the basics. Sites are more level than some other parks nearby but I said 'no' to big rig access even though their website claims they can handle up to 40'. My 34' fifth wheel fit, but I had to disconnect truck and park widthwise behind. Cable TV is actually digital antenna and may or may not be stronger than your rig's antenna. WiFi extremely slow when tested, my broadband card worked better. It appears they are still doing some renovating and facilities and grounds are neat. We might stay again.

This is the fourth COE park around Lake Waco. Small but appears to be recently created or renovated. Most sites have covered metal tables with neat concrete and graveled areas around. While some trees, few provided shade on campsite but sites are large and easily accessed (no trees to navigate around). $10 fee is Golden Age Pass price. We would certainly return. Nine rating is due to restrooms a bit far from some of the sites, especially lake side. BE SURE to follow directions from recreation.gov web site, as some GPS may take you over McLaughlin Rd now under water. Also, at the time of this review, three of the four COE parks around Waco Lake were mis-labeled at the recreation.gov site. The coordinates for Speegleville took you to Airport COE park. Check satellite maps around Waco Lake for clarity. Good TV and broadband card reception.

This is one of four COE parks around Lake Lavon-I think the smallest. It is the farthest from shopping, etc. but I think the most pleasant for lake view, quiet and chance of shade. Lots of folks were fishing so good for that, too. We stayed at all four of the Lavon Lake parks this spring and we liked this the best. Only drawback, perhaps the time of year, were spiders. Every day I had to take a broom and clear off webs on the rig and truck. We we would stay again.

Not a 'resort' stop but a good choice for getting off the road with lots of room for any size rig. Nightly rate discounted for Passport if stay is minimum of 3 up to 6 nights. No-one on site, payment is by "fee envelope in the slot". Phone number above is corrected from last review. Wi-Fi was not working the week we were there. No bath or shower facilities for tenting-self contained units best. Not far south from Canton for shopping, etc. One mile south is a pleasant Mexican-American restaurant. We and would return.

The park has new managers, here for about a year and a half..very friendly. Park buildings have been painted in the last couple of months and the whole park looks very clean. There are two restroom, shower and laundry areas, all very clean. The Wi-Fi and cable are working great. Some of the 'limitations' (like a few lots being a little narrow) are sill as mentioned in previous reviews but very few of long term units were un-attractive and nothing here would keep me from returning. GPS note..some units (like mine) may send you to Marino Road via Tioga Road, etc..an out of the way route. Marino Rd is right off Hwy 21 and is the most direct route.

All of the nice things said in the previous reviews are still valid but we must update at least for all who enjoy this park. Improvements include a swimming pool, laundry, showers, a nice recreation hall and they provided camp hosts for a couple of months this Winter who arranged activities. Several new sites have been added so the site count above may be greater. We stayed for a week for $150 (monthly $250 plus) so I'm not positive on the nightly rate. Last year at this time we stayed a couple of months before these improvements. We'd stay any length of time and they were running some kind of special for long term stays.
