This could have been a nice place to stay but didn't turn out that way at all! The place looked nice because it sits on the top of a hill, but it was a very very tough place to get into with our 30' rig. So we had called the woman that owns the park several times and were assured that pets & children were accepted. She said they are always welcome. But when we got there, she threw a complete hissy fit and told us that we would have to leave immediately because she didn't take dogs (Ours are very small) and one of her long term people would leave if there were any children there. We were shocked at her turn in mood, and honestly she seemed to be drunk or something because she was a totally different person than when we spoke earlier in the day. We did end up staying the night because it was already late, but we would not recommend this RV park to anyone. Or at least if you have pets and children. We camped here in a Motorhome.

My price reflects the weekly rate. A smaller park at the top of a hill with nice views. A slightly dusty and gravel washboard entry road are the only negatives. A very quiet park with easy access sites. Very easy and friendly check in. Spacing is very good and we would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lovely, clean park just down the road from Lake Mineral Wells State Park (which is always full). Beautiful views of the valley. Helpful and friendly owner. Definitely recommend a stay if you're anywhere near Mineral Wells, Texas. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park hostess was very nice and drove us to our site. The park wasn't full, so we were able to select the best site in the house which had a wonderful view. We were not able to pick up any WiFi. I would recommend this park for people touring the area or overnighting. We stayed one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Up on hill with great sunset views and a wonderful view of the entire valley. Walked across the street and visited the Vietnam Memorial. Lake Mineral Wells State Park and Clark Gardens are within a quarter of a mile or less. Factory outlet shopping just one mile from park. Very helpful and wonderful people to stay with. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is a joke. NO bathrooms or showers. It is only for monthly renters. There are older travel trailers there with no pride of ownership. They have a monthly rate of 400.00. The daily rate is 12.00. So if you plan on staying long term choose the daily rate, as it is actually cheaper. 360.00 a month at the daily rate, 400.00 a month is you pay by the month.??. BAD road going into the place, you WILL scrape your bumpers going in. They do NO clean up, because the place has trash laying around blowing into your area. Dogs run loose, barking all night, the highway noise is pretty bad. Lots of truckers. Electric is hit and miss, our box kept shorting out, and lights dimming all the time. DO NOT stay here. CASH only, and they don't do receipts. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is mainly for monthly, only 1 site is open for over night, it's a pull through, but small. The owners do not run the place, the previous owner does manage it, if that's what you can call it. No one cleans, no maintenance is done here at all, faulty electrical. All utilities are paid with monthly and weekly rates. It's a very high price for such an older run down park. Hwy noise is terrible, no naps here people, big rigs running by all the time. The managers are nice enough, but can't give out receipts for your stay. Which was an issue for us. We came here to look for a home, sold our motor-home and purchased a travel trailer cheap, lots of the FEMA units for sale in Ft. Worth and surrounding area. The area has history, but nothing as for things to do, so I guess all that went with the history? You can get DSL cable internet, at the sites, but you will have to pay for it. The manager don't want anyone on his Wi-Fi, because Suddenlink will cut your account off if you download movies etc... We will not stay here again, dogs run loose, including the owners dogs, and the managers dog will bite you if you try to approach their door, not a good way to welcome people at all. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We like this park. They have a dump station available. It is quiet and the sites are roomy. You can fish for free on the lake. You must pay the daily charge of $7 a person for each day you camp. You might be better off buying the Texas park pass for $70 which covers everyone in your vehicle and is good at all parks. We stayed three days this visit. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park as sites are spaced far apart and level. We could not see our neighbors on either side due to the trees. TV reception not available due to trees limbs, but will come back. Do not use google maps as they send you to the wrong side of the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We came here for the rock climbing for our grandsons to enjoy. Bring your own gear and be prepared to sign a waiver. Climbing area is closed during wet weather. Live Oak campground has 50 amp hookups and lots of privacy provided by the heavy brush and trees around the campsites. Plateau campground has 30 amp hookups and less brush so the campsites are more open. If you have children you might prefer this area since you can see them if they wander off. Both areas had all campsites paved and level and some sites were waterfront. The bathrooms were OK. Not really clean, but not dirty either, just OK. Had to drive up to the office to get Wi-Fi. Office staff was friendly and helpful, but one employee in the field was unpleasant and kept telling kids to get off the rocks. Go figure. Would have rated this park a 10 if not for this guy and the so so restrooms. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Typical (wonderful) Texas State Park. A great many of the parking sites have been leveled (often a former complaint of LMWSP). The newly leveled sites look great. Power at our site (58 Live Oak) was 50A/30A/15A. Our 30A outlet did not work, so I connected to 50A with an adapter. Sites are VERY private. Park Police are very vigilant and park visitors are a very quality group. The restrooms were typical (nothing to write home about). Some are just restrooms so you may have to walk quite a ways for a shower. The lake is a joy - fishing, boating, kayaking. Trails are all over the place but with a little rain before our arrival, the mountain biking was a muddy mess and those trails are six foot wide horse trails (boring) anyway - wish this park had a single track. The hiking trail on the lake is very nice. The rock climbing was not available due to water on the rocks even days after the rains. This is one of our favorite Texas State Parks. We cannot wait to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park restroom facilities were down the day we arrived and were not working until 5 p.m. The restrooms were poorly maintained, showers are semi-private. We will stay at a private RV Park when next visiting Mineral Wells. We stayed in the Plateau Camping Area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park has well-separated sites, some of which are not too level. The Live Oak campground is all 30/50 amps and costs $25 per night; the Plateau campground is 30 amps and costs $20. There is very good walking and bicycling. Shower water was hot and abundant, but the showers are only semi-private. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful state park. There were deer in my front yard and the lake in my back yard. The sites are well done and mostly level. It is quiet and peaceful. I would come back. I recommend sites #59 or 64 for the best lake views. Both would accommodate large rigs. I can see that it would be very busy in the summer. There are good bike and hike trails and rock climbing here. Be sure to visit Clark Botanical Gardens while in the area: the best I have seen across the US. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great Texas State Park with level sites, lake view, and shade. Park ranger was great helping us find a good spot for our motor home. Very clean park. Kids loved swimming in the lake Restrooms are clean but could use a remodel. We will be back to this great park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I love this park; it's one of my favorite places to visit. While there, spend some time at the climbing wall, it's beautiful and if you go down into the pit (there are stairs) it is a cool respite from the heat. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A nice park with water and electric sites. There is good hiking and biking including a long trailway. There is great boating and fishing for those that like that, including a canyon for the rock climbers. There are eight Geocaches in the park to enhance the experience. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Another great TX state park. Most sites are level and with lake views. There is a great park store and lots of awesome trails. The rock formations in this park make it worthwhile. We will certainly make another trip here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice texas state park,with lake for fishing. Has camp store which is well stocked, swimming beach. Lots of trees and secluded large camp sites. Sites are level. This is a very busy park over the weekends. Park has nightly weekend events. Would stay here again We camped here in a Motorhome.
State park camping - good space, some trees and shade. Most sites are not on lake front. Concessionaire has bait shop, boat rentals, groceries, ice, and snacks. Great hiking trails, climbing area. Not to be missed is the nightly programs at the amphitheater. Bring your chairs for a free evenings entertainment. When we were there, cowboy poetry, history of the area, music were on the program. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This CG is more geared to those who like a more rustic environment. It is heavily wooded but the asphalt roads in and out are in good repair. If you like amenities such as pool, clubhouse and activities, this is not for you. If you like tent camping or RV camping very close to nature, try this place. I thought as an RV'er that this is a little pricey for what you get but it worked well for us just passing through for a one nighter. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very rustic state park that reminds me, very much, of Palo Duro Canyon without the high canyon cliffs, beautiful vistas and the steep access. The soil is red and sandy, much like Palo Duro, and there are plenty of short mesquite trees, again much like Palo Duro, and the only drawback to me is that there are very few tall oak tree to provide adequate shade during the hot Texas summers, and Mineral Wells is a very warm spot during the summer months. On the weather stations of nearby Fort Worth/Dallas during the summer Mineral Wells in usually one of the warmer places on the map if not the hottest locally. Personally, having grown up in the Texas Panhandle, and going to Palo Duro quite often, I would, most likely, pass on this campground because I prefer more large trees than are here, but that's me. The electrical supply for my 30A Travel Trailer never faltered while we were there and the park was full for this was a holiday weekend... and hot, did I say that Mineral Wells is a hot spot? The roads are paved and you drive across the dam to access the most of the campsites. There is rockclimbing as well and they charge a very modest $3.00 fee, and yes there were some people climbing rocks in >100 degree heat. I didn't, I stayed inside and enjoyed my AC. Camp sites are clean and properly policed as there appears to be very few reminders of previous visitors. The whole North Texas area is in a severe drought and thefore the lake level was low, but one cannot detract from the campground rating because, as I said, the whole North Texas area is under a drought. There is a nature walk and a trail where one can ride their horse. We don't have a horse, but from what I can find out, from people who do, that this is a favorite place to trailer in your horse and give them some exercise. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a good park for family activities and relaxation. Park staff are friendly and helpful. Sites are paved and sized for medium to small units, but did see some larger ones. Most sites are a little to narrow to use awnings. Good place to do some fishing. We stayed in a pop-up in 2002. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is a very nice park, and all sites have the Texas sun on the drivers side. Everything worked as it should, easy and friendly check in, with a veterans discount. It is right on 281, so there is no need to wander off the path to find the park. Gravel roads and sites, but plenty wide and easy access for a 43ft. towing. Some sites appear to have cable, but we got 20+ stations from the antenna. There were a few work campers in park, but everything was nice and neat. This park is an easy drive from our home in OKC and, 4 hours to Bulverede TX, and then on to the valley for the winter and return. We will definitely return next fall on the way to Mercedes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is awesome. No cable, but the rest of the park made up for it. There is some road noise from Hwy 281, but not that bad, and it gets quiet at night. The bathrooms and showers are to die for as far as RV parks go, really nice and clean, free too no quarters needed here!! YAH! Lots are level, easy in and easy out, all the lots are pull through. The free Wi-Fi is good, nice strong signal, and encrypted, they did their homework on that. They do monthly and have a discount for Veterans. Which I found really cool. Great park would stay here again, and probably will. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There are not enough trees to shade a gopher. This park is in the middle of nowhere, and there are no amenities. The park manager said that he hates people in general. They have no vending machines, no ice machines They are not equine friendly. There is no pool, just a site that is unlevel, road noise from 281, and no TV, unless you want to get a movie from them that also costs. The only good thing I can say about this park is that I never have to stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
