Date of Stay: November, 2013
Having been on a very busy extended trip (almost 6 months) we were looking for a quiet RV park to settle for a couple of weeks. In East Texas, just north of Tyler, we found a gem in the Lions RV Park. It is located in quiet countryside; you never hear the Interstate, airplanes or trains. From any of the full-hookup sites you can enjoy the 20 acres of treed, rolling hills and the 4-acre spring-fed lake. If you take the time to "smell the roses", you can count the beneficial carp, turtles and other lake inhabitants. Some campers have been skilled enough to catch up to 4 pound bass. It has a comfortable club house, almost new laundry equipment, outdoor smokers and BBQ and sunset-watching piers are available for all to enjoy. If we didn't have obligations at home, we would have stayed for another week.

We stopped at this park because it was listed in Passport America. It was not the easiest park to get to, but we wanted something that was not directly on the Interstate. When we arrived there, the first thing the woman behind the desk told us was how bad this year had been for them, and how much the recent rains had damaged, or made unusable, some of the sites in the campground. When we told her we were members of Passport America, she informed us that the sites reserved for Passport America members were among those flooded, and she refused to give us the discount! The site assigned to us was next to several sites that were occupied by old trailers that were in such poor shape they looked to be abandoned. In addition, the park roads were dirt and only one lane, making it tricky to back into the site assigned to us. This park did not make us feel welcomed, and we would not recommend it.
