This is a nice state park with lots of shade trees and a beautiful lake. The park has canoes for rent. Many of the sites are uneven with significant slope from rear to front. It would be impossible to level a motorhome on these sites. We stayed at site #18, a pull through right on the lake. That site is a little uneven but we easily leveled the motorhome. We made the mistake of staying in the park on a holiday weekend. There were dozens of screaming children everywhere in the campground. I'm not talking about children playing, I mean SCREAMING!. It sounded like a slasher movie run amuck! All the parents appeared to be hearing impaired. They were yelling at each other to be heard over the children. One 8 or 9 year old lad in the camp site next to us was particularly endearing. His favorite activity was pounding a large stick on the picnic table while screaming. His parents were at the campsite, they didn't seem to notice. The morning we left everyone packed up their children and left. It was blissfully quiet. Ft, Parker is a nice place but if it's a holiday weekend I'd rather stay in a Walmart parking lot next to the interstate and train tracks. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a Texas state park on a lake. Nice facility in a relatively out of the way area. We only stayed one night as a stopover on the way to Austin as it was not too far out of our way. Nice facility with plenty to do if you are so inclined; kayak & canoe rentals, lake swimming, boat ramp. We were there on an off season week day and there was only one other camper in the park. Sites are old design,not very wide and a bit unlevel. We used one of the pull through spaces and it was very tight. Do NOT (as the ranger suggested) try to do the U-Turn at the end of the CG road with your toad still attached but unhook before you turn into the CG road. We made that mistake and had to unhook in mid turn so we could back up and continue the U-turn. There is a large parking area just past the CG turn that you can use for that purpose. Water/electric were fine, with dump station available on the way out. Beautiful quiet sunset and abundant wildlife on the lake. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Very nice park! We were one of about 6 trailers that night. The park is not well known which makes it nice for people who hate crowds (like me). We had our pick of about 15 spots. The park ranger told us to just go down and pick a spot, set-up, then come back and tell him which one we picked. All of the sites have a view of the lake. My only complaint (if it really is one) is that the frogs get really loud at night. The sunset over the lake is breath-taking! I will be back! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
