This is a Corps of Engineers project on Hords Creek Lake. The park is very clean and beautiful with oak trees all over the camping area. Very quiet camping. The lake is low due to drought conditions. If traveling through this area near Coleman Texas and you need a place to stay this is an excellent choice. Not fancy but clean, quiet, and beautiful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park only has one side open but there is plenty of space available and all are circular or pull through. Sites are flat and gravel. Watch out for the stickers that can get in a pet's feet. Lake is still very low with all lake activities closed and will remain closed until the water is higher. Staff is wonderful. Take all food items you are going to need, the closest is in Brownwood, 30 miles away. The store in Coleman closed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The lake was still low when we were there and for that reason we were about the only ones there. The town of Coleman has some things to see but it is only about 40 miles to Abilene and the Mall. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is very large and well maintained. It has cheaper rates for the 30 amp sites, which are the ones we stayed at. The sites were well shaded and were mostly level. Each site had a nice covered picnic table and fire ring, BBQ grill, or both. Our site did not have a fire ring, so we'll have to ask for a site with one next time. They have some good fishing docks and swimming areas in this lake. The swimming areas were gravel beaches. The lake was low so the swimming areas were rather shrunken in size compared with how big they should be. My impression was that the lake has been low for some time. It was probably a good 15' low. There were also some good, modern, and well-maintained playgrounds which the kids loved. These campgrounds also have some very large nice group areas with large covered picnic areas and RV hookups next to them. The campground staff were mostly full-time RVers playing camp host. They were extremely friendly and helpful. This would be a good lake for fishing or jet skiing, but probably not a lot of water skiing as it's not very large, especially at it's current level. We gave it 9 out of 10 because the bathrooms, while clean, were a little run down. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
A COE campground that is combined together with Flatrock and Lakeside due to staffing shortages. A smallish lake is the centerpiece - water was low due to drought. Some sites not level but as with most COE's the sites are very large and many on the water. We stayed in the lakeside area and would stay in any of it. Group facilities were especially nice, 8 or more RV's with common hall or pavilion and own restrooms and some kitchens. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Flat Rock is adjacent to the Lakeside Corp campground and it is also on the Hords Creek Lake. We did not camp in this park, but a review of it is easy. It is generally a mirror image of Lakeside campground, with the exception of site utilities. Read the Lakeside review. This campground is mostly water/electric 30-amp service, but there are a few full hook up sites and a few 50-amp sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A Corps of Engineers campground so we were able to use our Senior Access and pay half the rate. We had Lot TO18 which was great! Nice shady trees and right across from the very clean restrooms. There's not much left to this lake either due to the extreme drought and heat in this part of Texas. Had there been a lake, we would have had a nice lake view but as it was, we had a little creek view. Quiet. Deer. About 9 miles from the small town of Coleman. No Verizon reception at all but they said AT&T works great. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a huge, well-maintained, ascetically pleasing Corp park with multiple campground sections located around and in close proximity to the lake. This is arguably one of the best in Texas. There is something here for everyone including large covered picnic shelters with BBQ barrels, group shelters with water/electric 50/30 amp hookups, individual screened shelters for tenters, two swim beaches, multiple dump stations, two covered community playgrounds, and several boat ramps. 50 amp sites are plentiful and a few full hook-up sites have recently been added. The majority of all sites are generally large, paved, level, and easy to get into. There is a combination of back in and pull throughs. They advertise 67 sites, but that’s probably outdated on the low side. Voltage and water pressure was good, but the place wasn’t crowded during the stay. Shade trees are plentiful and deer are abundant. There are clean bathhouse facilities in each area, but they’re just OK. Most are small, lack electrical outlets, and water sources are on timed sensors. The park is off the beaten path so there wasn’t any cell coverage. We were allowed to drive through the park and pick any site that was non-reservable. That is the best way to get the ideal site here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
