This park is way off the highway. We were traveling through and there isn't much to choose from around here. Price was right. People who worked here were very friendly. The park is definitely run down. Needs lots of work. Lake looked really nice. Boat dock very nice. If you have a boat this place would be fine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Memorial Day Weekend, park was full but did not seem crowded. Lake level is way down, so "lakefront" sites became thick-grass front sites. Playground has swings, monkey bars in good shape and a sand volleyball court near it. Sites are fairly close together and those under trees (most of them) don't have much grass so it gets a little messy when it gets wet. Boat ramp with small dock and fish cleaning station was fine. Nearby power plant which warms lake with water releases can be seen from boat dock area. Staff was friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice lake with plenty of trees. Cellphone not strong but OK. Voltage is low. The staff pretty disinterested. There is about a 5 mile drive to the camp site after entering park. Sites are not 1evel and paving old and rough. We stayed for 3 nights and would stay here again. Texas requires an annual pass or daily entrance fees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Love this park, but it is better in the winter. The water of the lake is extremely warm because of the power plant and in the hot Texas sun, the water was too hot to be enjoyable. In winter though, the park is excellent. The park rangers are nice and friendly. Love camping here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Trees were cut back nicely which allowed the motor home to get in easily. It was not a pull thru site, but there was plenty of room. It was easy in and out with big rigs. Sewer sites are only for the camp hosts, so these cannot be reserved. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the prettiest state park we've ever stayed in. The sites were surprisingly spacious: Texas style! The lake is warm and serene and we had numerous encounters with wildlife. Can't wait to go back! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is showing it's age. The sites are nothing more than dirt. The landscaping ties are rotten and falling apart. The roads are in rough shape and in need of re-paving. There are some trails to hike and boating is big here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice big campground, some sites are level and others are needing repairs. Some sites next to the lake in Cooks Ferry were nice, level sites looking out over the lake. Phone service is limited but depends on carrier. Bathrooms were below avg, not clean each time I went. Lots to do, swimming, fishing, hiking, boating and a lot of wildlife. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We stayed at this park for two nights. As others have stated, you need "the code" to enter the park since it's gated. Someone may come around to collect money after you arrive, or they may ask that you drop it in the "honor" box. All of the sites appeared to be back-ins, with gravel. Our site was relatively level. There are some trees in the park that offer a bit of shade, but not all sites have trees near them. The WI-Fi worked well. Although a previous reviewer had stated there were no laundry or bath facilities, I believe this park does now have those, but we didn't make use of them. We would stay here again if we were passing through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was very nice and clean, one phone call and the secret code and we were in. Payment is on the honor system though someone came through the park the next morning checking. The spot we got was wide enough for the motorhome and our unhooked trailer in the same spot. No pull-throughs, would have been nice to have but we managed. If we are in this area again we will stay here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fine for an overnight stay. As the previous reviewer wrote, this is a bare-bones campground. No bathrooms, laundry, etc. Just a level place to park for the night, surrounded by a security fence. Utilities were fine. You need to call the office to get the code to enter. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a new campground with all large back in sites. They have no facilities or on site personal. You are given a code when you call that opens the gate. All gravel roads and sites. This will be an excellent campground when completed. Great Wi-Fi and Cable. We stayed overnight and would use again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived about 3pm and stopped outside the keypad locked gate and called the posted number. The lady who answered gave me the entry code and said to come back downtown to another location to pay for the site. I told her we were only staying overnight and didn't want to unhook our toad. She said that was fine she would be at the park right after 5pm. We entered the park and discovered that all the sites were back in and there was no place to turn around without unhooking the toad. Since we had no choice we unhooked the toad and backed into a site and got set up. We waited until 6pm and no one showed up to collect our fee. We went into town and ate dinner and returned to the campsite. When we left the next day we still hadn't seen anyone from the campground management. Heavy rain was moving in and we were trying to beat it home so we left. I called them and left a message on their voice mail to contact me about payment by mail. I am still waiting to hear from them. The park was clean and well kept. Maneuvering was a little tight for a big rig. This park as stated before seems to be set up mainly for long term stays. Not a good choice for overnight. The lack of a place to turn around once you are in the park was a real minus. The first time I have encountered this in over 40 years of rving. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used this park as an overnight stop on I-45 on our way to a morning arrival in Dallas. We called ahead and the lady on the phone was very helpful. She gave us directions, which was a good thing since Google Maps has the location on the wrong side of town. A security code is required to enter the park. We arrived after dark and discovered with no moon: the site is pitch black. All the sites are back in with tight turns, so we had some difficulty getting into our site in the darkness. There were only 2 trailers in the park some distance away. We left early the next morning having not seen or talked to a soul. The site is OK and secure, but not suited for an overnight stay. It is probably good for an extended stay in the area, but arrive before sundown. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you have business in the area, this is the place. It isn't a resort with activities, but it is a clean, well-secured place to park. It is fenced with cable TV and Wi-Fi signal. It's fairly new. Only drawbacks is the lack of shade, but that will come as the trees grow and all the sites are back ins. Most of them are very long, however, is some areas the road is a bit tight and requires some maneuvering. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate based on $150 per week electric included. Very friendly staff. Park well maintained. If pull though sites are critical like the other person rating this park you will be disappointed. The back in sites are easy to maneuver and about 50% of them are shaded. The cabins look very nice. However, we did not use them but saw housekeeping zipping around, seems like they would be nice. Would like to have had a few more cable channels but the basic took care of our needs. Laundry room was fantastic! We would definitely recommend this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
DO NOT STAY HERE. We pulled in after the office was closed and found there were no pull thrus but since it was fairly empty except for some pretty dumpy worker's trailers, we parked sideways so we could get electric. There was trash by the new electric poles included a used sewer hose and beer cans. When we checked out in the morning we found the cost was $35 a nite!!!! I've paid less for resort type parks that were nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
