This is not a resort; this is an old KOA campground with a new coat of paint. That would be fine too but the grounds are not kept up well at all. The dog park is infested with fleas and mosquitoes and there is a nasty leak into the dog park from the laundry room. The hot tub doesn’t work and the roads are narrow and rough. They are open to all ages and conditions of RV’s as well as tent campers. It’s not unusual to see tent campers sleeping on top of picnic tables. Crime is a problem throughout the park as well, via burglary and monthly residents with criminal backgrounds. The park is located on the frontage road of I-35 and is flanked by a church on one side, a XXX theater on the other and a busy road across the back. The pool is at the front of the park, so relaxing by the pool includes the sights, sounds and smells of I-35. This is not a place you want your family to run and play. There are no events for campers to participate in at holidays and no activities for long terms snow-birds.

This is our favorite State Park. There are plenty of activities available at this park including fishing, hiking, swimming, boating and biking. If you’re quiet and patient the deer will amaze you. Don’t miss this one, but watch out for the pet rattlesnake in the office! The snake behind the glass is real and alive.

Great Texas State Park. Good roads for biking, good trails for hikes and a pond for fishing. Quiet atmosphere and friendly staff.
