Salmon Lake Park, Grapeland, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

For only $20 a night for full hookups, Salmon Lake Park is a great RV park where Texas hospitality is demonstrated. The park host and staff are friendly and "looking to please". The owner came out and spent an evening with us sharing some wonderful stories from his life. He is a very interesting fellow who has had more than a few adventures.

The park has all the amenities: small store for snacks, drinks, bottled water, and bagged ice. There is fishing, swimming, a playground, an old west town, and even a few tree-houses! Check out their website Salmon Lake Park for all the fun details and pictures.

Salmon Lake Park does not accept credit cards. The campsites are level and most are well-shaded by oak, pine, and live oak trees. The RV sites are grass and/or sand. The park is basically a wide open pasture with a smattering of trees and hook-ups for the RVs. If it rains you can expect mud.

Be prepared for ants (big ants, red ants, carpenter, ants, fire ants, little ants, black ants, etc.) We recommend using Amdro Ant Block or some similar product.

Each Memorial Day week-end Salmon Lake Park has a Gospel Music Festival and every Labor Day week-end they have a big East-Texas Blue Grass Festival. We camped at Salmon Lake Park in a Travel Trailer.

Mission Tejas State Park, Weches, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

This is quiet little State Park on the edge of the Davy Crockett National Forest. They have five RV campsites with full hookups for only $15 a night. Other campsites are available with water and electricity for $13 a night. The park has a dump station. The RV sites are not level but they are asphalt. Campsites include a picnic table, fire ring with grill-top, a lantern post, and also a waist high cooking grill. The towering pines and oaks are magnificent and there are plenty of birds and other wildlife.The Park Ranger and staff are very friendly and helpful. This park offers free firewood! The park office sells bagged ice for $2 a bag.

We enjoyed the peaceful serenity of camping among the East Texas pines. It was so quiet. We even had an armadillo come into camp after dark for a short visit. We camped at Mission Tejas State Park in a Travel Trailer.

WinStar RV Park, Thackerville, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a first-class RV park. The sites are wide and long so they can easily accommodate even the largest fifth-wheel travel trailer or Class A motorhome. Each site has a grill, picnic table and trash can. Full hook-ups are the best that we have experienced at any RV park. Pull through sites offer full hook-ups on either side so you can park your RV facing in either direction. Quick and easy set-up with 30 0r 50 amp and two extra 120VAC outlets at each power pedestal. Good quality "tight" water connections for city water. Sewer hose attaches securely in the dump drain and it even ahs a heavy metal lid to "trap" that hose firmly. No muss-no fuss. The park registration is extremely friendly, helpful, and courteous. They truly extend a warm welcome and the registration process is fast and smooth. The park is safe and patrolled by security 24/7. The bath house and laundry are clean and comfortable with washers and dryers available. Free coffee is available from 0700 until 1100PM. There is also a lounge with a big-screen TV and vending machines. There is a always available free 24 hr air-conditioned shuttle that will take you anywhere you desire: golf course, breakfast, casino, hotel, etc. The park is quiet, clean, well-kept, and very comfortable. We can't wait to go back for another great visit. Truly an enjoyable RV park where it seems that they have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and fun. We camped at WinStar RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Use the WinStar Player's Club card and your first night is free! The golf course serves an excellent breakfast at a very reasonable price. We visited in August and the temperature was over 100 degrees so the refreshing swimming pool was a welcoming oasis.

Lake Whitney State Park, Whitney, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

We wanted to take our Casita out and shake off some of this cold-spell cabin fever. We needed a short camping break. So during the second week of February we decided to take advantage of the off-season State Park rates (only $84 a week for full hook-ups). We picked near-by Lake Whitney State Park. A short drive south from Dallas on Interstate 35, take the Hillsboro exit. At the Hillsboro exit, turn right on State Highway 22 and then take State Highway 22 west to Whitney. Then follow the signs to Lake Whitney State Park. The park is located three miles west of Whitney on FM 1244 on the shores of Lake Whitney.

While only about an hour away from the Dallas-Ft. Worth metro-mess, Lake Whitney State Park is still far enough out to enjoy the stars and dark night skies.

They have 43 campsites with full hook-ups. The sites are well-spaced so you don't get cramped. All RV sites are mostly level front-to-back and level side-to-side so minimum leveling is needed. The electric and water hook-ups looked new.

Facilities were spotlessly clean. We even had free Wi-Fi!

Deer are everywhere, turkey are common and there is camping, hiking, mountain biking, picnicking, boating, fishing, water skiing, nature study and excellent birding. We saw more beautiful bright red Cardinals this week than we have ever seen anywhere else. In warmer months there is swimming (buoyed area -no lifeguard on duty), scuba diving, and a small beach. The Park Headquarters has "loaner" fishing tackle, rods and reels.

When I say deer are everywhere: the deer are EVERYWHERE. We saw large herds of deer every morning and most evenings. Two mornings we awoke to find our site surrounded by whitetails. It was a really beautiful site to see these whitetails frolicking in the morning Sun. We camped at Lake Whitney State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cloud Nine Park, Hot Springs, Arkansas

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Friendliest camp hosts in Arkansas. Spotlessly clean and immaculately maintained. The hosts worked tirelessly to make our visit special. They genuinely care about their guests and show it by diligently working sometimes well after dark cleaning, organizing, and landscaping. Security is no problem because they keep a watchful eye on everything. Laundry facilities were immaculate. WIFI signal was strong and worked everywhere throughout the park. Originally scheduled to stay for two nights, we stayed for a full week because we enjoyed it so much. The host even bakes cakes and cookies for her guests at Cloud Nine. This park has a quiet peaceful country atmosphere surrounded by beautiful mountain views but is only minutes away from all the local attractions, shopping, and dining. We even got a phone call from the host when we returned home. She wanted to make sure that we had arrived home safely and invited us back! We will definitely camp at Cloud Nine again very soon! We camped at Cloud Nine Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here only one night. It was very clean and well-maintained. The host was exceptionally nice. The sites are easy to navigate and level. Set-up and departure was quick and easy. Quiet, comfortable RV park ideally situated for highway access. We camped at Town & Country Camping & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
