This is the sixth year of staying in this park. We love to come here because there is a "June Lake House" in the center of the park and 4 couple friends can stay there, those without rigs. There is also a cute little cabin they call the Bears Den that has a murphy bed, kitchen and living area. We enjoyed the community fire pit in the evening, kayaking on Gull Lake, biking the Mammoth Lakes bike trail and golfing while in the area. Some of our group walked around Gull Lake and others visited the Tufa's at Mono Lake. For the most part the park is clean. Page the manager is helpful and we enjoyed out visit.

We arrived around 4pm after having called and talked to Dawn at the State Park office. She followed us into the campground and suggested because of our size and the time of day that we park in the handicapped spot. We loved it, all cement and away from other campers. We kayaked at Eagle Valley Reservoir about 40 miles away and took a day trip to Lehman Caves. No one every bothered us or asked us to move even tho we camped there 3 days.

We got the best spot in the place, on grass so our rig stayed clean inside. This park is located in a little Mormon farming town. There is a large LDS church, town offices and park right across the street which was really convenient when walking the dog. Gail is the owner and she is real nice and helpful.

We were given a spot in the "new" area which is a large parking lot. Although that area had cable hookups, we opted to change to the older part. The lady was very nice when we requested this change. The only drawback is that they really pack them in here. We just got settled in our bed for a good nights sleep when another RVer decided to have a conversation (in a foreign language) right outside our bedroom window. I guess we are just used to state parks where there is plenty of room between the sites.

This is a fractional ownership park. It is associated with Thousand Trails. I made the reservation through ReserveAmerica and thought it was a state park, my mistake. There are lots of people, kids, dogs etc. They have lots of organized activities too. So if this is your thing, this might be your park. For what we got (full hookups) I felt the nightly rate was really high. We camped in the quiet section and it was, although a long way from the pool or other facilities, even the trash container. There are lots of park models here too. The reason we came here is because we wanted to be close to Williamsburg so we could spend the day there, as it turned out Williamsburg is about 15 miles away. I would not camp here again.

Really, really nice RV park, good distance between sites, which are mostly situated around a 5 acre lake. We asked and the personnel allowed our dog to swim in the swimming area which he enjoyed. I used the laundry which was inexpensive ($1.25 wash and $1.00 dry). We also had a pizza here which was good. We would have stayed longer but had reservations and had to move on. There are some permanent RVs but they seem to be located in a different area. The only negative is that the approach road is somewhat narrow. On the positive, fishermen seemed to like the area, we saw several launching their boats as we departed in the morning.

We loved this place. Nice and clean. Big sites. Nice people. We rode our bikes outside the park and by the UMC church to wonderful bike paths by the Villages. The only reason I gave it a 9 is because after 30 minutes of trying to get TV via the cable I called the front office and found out that only units 2 and part of 1 were able to get it. Tip - eat at Pearls (great food).

We arrived here just before 4pm. The gate was closed and there was a sign that said "Only Primitive Campsites Available". We turned to leave and a nice lady came out with a campground map and asked us how many nights we wanted to stay. We told her only 1. With this she let us in and there were plenty of sites available. Evidently, the staff is gearing up for the Memorial Day weekend. If you come in after the office is closed, drive around (to the left) of the office building. Don't camp in the sites that they state that are paid for. Our dog enjoyed a nice swim in the lake. Our pad was concrete and level (somewhat). We would definitely come here again - quite and beautiful.

This campground is really nice, it is under the trees and close to the train depot. We arrived here on a Sunday afternoon in time to see the diesel train depart for Palestine and the steam train arrive back. On a weekday there isn't many campers. Our dog enjoyed a swim in the lake.

Real nice RV park. We camped in the RV patio area. There were trees, cement pads, table and benches made of tile and cement, and a parking area for truck on gravel. We used the dog run for our Lab; it was fenced and located behind the maintenance area. Laundry room was clean, and there were a great many machines ($1.50 wash/$.75 dry). There are rooms for sewing, billiards, and general meetings/potlucks/get togethers. There are shuffle board courts, pickle board area, bocce ball, golf driving area (net), library, and pool/hot tub. Real nice park all around - quiet and clean.

This park is clean and the spaces are well apart. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because it didn't have sewer at the site, although it had a dump station. The really nice thing is that the walk to the Discovery Area where the tours of the caves start is not far and there is a nice path. Nice place.

This is probably the best park in the area. It was quiet and clean. The sites are well spaced and marked. This park is a "Loners on Wheels" park and we were hesitant at first to come here (as we are married) but the other reviews were favorable so we chanced it. Nothing was said about not being single and we were welcomed. The man in the office was slow but nice. There is a small 'bark park' but I was given permission to play ball with my dog in the area adjacent to it. The wind blows and blows here. The nightly rate is very high in my opinion although it reflects a Good Sam 10% discount. We just overnighted here.

We stayed here 4 nights and received 1/2 off the second night and free entrance fees for all days. We loved seeing the javalinas which were out in the early morning and evening. The park is clean and well maintained. While we were here we attended a 'Star Party' and a daytime tour at McDonald Observatory (a must do). We also walked the Fort Davis Historical Park and watched their movie, which was very educational. Additionally we drove to Big Bend National Park - so lots to do in the vicinity. We had space 20 which was a pull-through on a hill. We had the back of the trailer down near the ground and the front up as far as we could put it. No shade but a veranda over the picnic table. We would definitely come here again. Please note: If you need to wash your clothes or vehicle you can go to Alpine TX. It is 30 miles but a real nice ride.

This park is really nice. The sites are spaced well apart and are clean. We stayed in site 289 which was right on the lake. We just left our kayaks at the shore and went paddling many times. Our Labrador Retriever loved playing in the water although he was supposed to be on a 6' leash. Because we were here during the week no one came around to make us leash him and he played freely in the water. We were also on a "no wake" zone so kayaking was very enjoyable. We paddled down to Devils Watering Hole and saw many turtles resting on rocks and one mother goose sitting on her eggs. We were here for 5 nights. The Texas Parks Pass paid for itself with this stay. Nice place.

We stayed down by the creek. Nice woods behind our trailer. The road noise was quite apparent. Our dog had a good time swimming in the creek. We toured Johnson Ranch while here. No Walmart or other big grocery store, although there was a Lowes in Johnson City. Would stay here again.
