Park has beautiful view of lake with waterfront sites available. Sites were level with concrete pads. Most of the interior roads are paved. Staff was friendly and helpful. Restrooms were clean and well maintained. Some previous reviews have mentioned ants. Ants are common in this part of Texas and while we did not have a problem we've learned to carry some spray and ant granules just in case, though most park managers will treat your site if you bring the issue to their attention. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Apparently changed to new management with KOA, very nice facilities, people were friendly and helpful. Rates were very reasonable. Concrete parking pads on pull-throughs and back-ins. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice boat ramps and beach. Camp ground was very unkempt. Our fire ring and our neighbors fire rings were both full of trash. Grass was very tall and not mowed. All this on a holiday weekend when they knew they were going to have a full park. No one bothered to check the sites before we arrived. There were lots of people in "Hello KOA" shirts at the office, but never saw any of them going around the park picking up trash or doing any sort of maintenance. And then there is the ant problem. Ants everywhere that invaded several people's rigs. This place would be really nice if they kept up with it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean park, very friendly staff, marina, over priced restaurant, nice pool and hot tub, small beach area (with a few dead fish), lots of ants, everywhere. We would stay here again if passing through the area. Oh, the grass is coming back (mostly sticker weeds) after the Great Texas Drought of 2011. I think it is under new ownership or management because it is now a KOA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground. Marina is only a boat launch & dock, we thought it would have boat rentals and tackle & bait. Hot tub was hot but the jets didn't work, from what other people have said it's been that way for a while. The lake was about 10+ feet low, but our 2 dogs enjoyed the water. The best thing this campground has going for it is Bubba's Lakeside restaurant. It is on the property but not a part of the campground. It has wonderful food at a decent price. We would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found this park on Best RV Parks in Texas. Very disappointing. The amenities that were listed, and on the map were not all here. No rec room, and no showers by the rec room. The pool was so plain. The hot tub has algea of some sort growing all in it. The showers and the personnel were nice. The park itself had no grass. The lake was very low and almost unusable by the boats. The fishing was bad. The worst part was the ants. They were everywhere. We had to go to Wal-Mart 13 miles away and spend $15 on chemicals. They still got in the Coach. One other camper told us of many other campers that left due to the ants. The park was exterminated in July but they were coming back. There were no street lights other than the Restaurant/Office area. There were a few lights on the shower room walls. The light at the electric posts were so faint that it would not be enough light to hook up, if you came in after dark. The road where we were was rocks and would not be safe to walk on, after dark. The pool and hot tub has no lights inside or outside the pool, making it unusable after dark, even though it is open until 10PM. There are some low watt lights at the Marina. It is the darkest park we have seen.
We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects discount. Very friendly, helpful staff. Nice clean park with large, level concrete slabs with a patio. Sites were easy to access and had plenty of room. We stayed in the newer section called Surfside which had a nice view of the lake, only slightly obstructed. There are some front row sites that have lake view/access but are designed for motorhomes. If you put a travel trailer in those spots, the utilities are on the front of your unit and appear to require and extension cord and double sewer hoses. Access to the lake from our site was through the front row sites which was somewhat inconvenient. One of our group used the restroom/shower facilities and said they were clean. We couldn't connect to Wi-Fi but it wasn't critical. Electrical service was solid (we've been to parks where power was barely adequate to run the AC), and we had no problems. Three negatives would be: 1) A horrible ant problem. We noticed ant baits at our site when we set up and sprayed the jack legs and tires. By the time we left, we had hundreds of ants in our trailer and are going to have to treat the trailer. The ants may be associated with the newer portion of the park. 2) The inconvenient sewer location. Because the north row of sites are on a hill, our sewer connection was uphill from our outlet and we had to manage the tanks then had trouble emptying at the end of the trip. 3) The poor Wi-Fi. All-in-all a nice park and we will return in spite of the ants. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The facilities, boat ramps, restaurant/bar, boat slips, beach swimming area, and pool are the positives for this park. The negatives are very tight RV spaces that are not friendly to motorhomes in excess of 35 feet. The pads themselves are fairly level, but most of the sites have sloped grass camp areas making them less than useful (items roll off the picnic table). Despite other posters dismissing the ants, they are definitely a problem, so bring ant spray, and spray your water hose and power cord, this will REDUCE, but not eliminate, the problem. The very best sites in the park are 70 thru 74A. They have concrete pad and picnic area over looking the water and go for about the same rate as the sloped grass sites from which you have to walk a half mile down to the water. We would not likely stay here again unless we were in those sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a lake lover 's dream campground. The only nightmarish event happened Monday morning at 4:55 a.m. when to our horror the dumpster service came and emptied all the dumpsters with their extremely loud noises. Folks this is sleeping hours, quiet time. We are very shocked that this is being allowed. This interrupted a great night's sleep. Management needs to be all over this. They are located by traffic noise of the highway which we were already trying to overlook; but the dumpster noise put it over the top. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed for 9 weeks. I originally stayed for a week, like it so I stayed a month, then went another month. I think this place is a hidden gem. It's my understanding it is under new management since the old reviews. They are still planting trees. Pros: All the pads look new, bathroom/laundry building is new (I didn't use it), basically everything is new. They built a fenced-in dog area while I was here. The restaurant has good food and plenty of alcohol. Beach is nice and my dog played ball in the lake every day. Lake is huge and gorgeous. Not real busy. Quiet. Excellent Wi-Fi, not intermittent. Cons: No trash cans but one at the covered picnic area. When I picked up the waste after my dog, I'd have to carry it for a long haul before I could toss it. Main trash bin for customers was overflowing every Sunday. Ants (hey, it's Texas after all). No propane fill on site. No supply store on site but there is plenty of shopping nearby, so not a big deal. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the worst resort I have ever stayed at. The dog area was over run with tall weeds. There was broken glass on the "beach". The pool was green and the ants were every where. This could be a beautiful rv resort if they would live up to their web-site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites were very nice with concrete pads and curbs. The maintenance was the only problem. We stayed there a week and the grass was high when we arrived and they mowed the last day we were there after another camper complained. The pool was dirty and the water color was green. It is a very nice place but just needs some monitoring. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park has a friendly staff and has wide, semi level concrete sites. The park is very clean, with its own boat ramp. The laundryroom needs upgrading by offering more than 4 washers and dryers. They do not offer quarters, sinks, clothes baskets, or ironing equipment. Our 4 day stay was quiet. The area offers very little in activities, unless you have a water craft. Before you drive to this part of Texas in the summer, think about very high humidity and alot of insects inside your RV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Enjoyed our stay. Only beef is that they advertise complementary wireless internet and cable TV. Cable TV was not turned on and the internet was Tangonet (meaning you paid). I was told they decided to only provide cable TV for long term folks. And we noticed some sites were filled with ants. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice RV resort right on Lake Livingston, with a marina. A new facility that is very well planned and laid out. One area of sites still not finished and it can be seen how much careful thought has been put into the layout. The restaurant is excellent with beautiful sunset views. Staff helpful and very pleasant. We had only planned on a quick overnight stay but stayed another day and wish we could have stayed a month. Next visit will be much longer! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I thought this was a great campground to stay at. Granted they are still working on it, but it will be a great park when they are done. As long as they take care of the ants. I had no problem with the service at the restaurant. The people are friendly and the park is very clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Ants, ants, and more ants. Not 38ft rig friendly. Roads are narrow and if the campers directly in front had not left so I could drive thru their site I would have had to back out. Absolutely impossible to make the tight turns. Great WiFi. Due to heavy rains we couldn't get to the pool. Restaurant handled a rally group of 25 Friday night quickly and with extremely attentive service. Did I mention the ants? Would not go back unless for a rally with our friends even though the rally hall that they assured us would be ready by 7/4 hasn't been started. One dumpster located near the office for the whole park. A 3 may be too good a rating. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First, let me say: I am not an owner nor have an interest in this facility. I just truly appreciate a good value for the money. We have stayed here twice: most recently for the 4th of July celebration that Lakeside hosted. It was awesome! Even though the temps reached 102 that weekend, we were never far from the water. About the ants: welcome to Texas!! We have ants and they are everywhere, especially in the summer. This park has a beach area, right near the pool, which is just beside their fishing pier. This makes it easy for the grownups to fish, keep an eye on the kids in the pool (at it's deepest only 4 feet) or float around at the beach just a few hundred feet away. There is also a boat launch and a real restaurant. Most importantly, this is a clean, friendly and hospitable park. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because they don't have a store, so you have to go up the road for your bait and ice. Enjoyed the Wi-Fi and free cable TV! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Great place to visit for a long weekend or longer, especially if you have a boat. Some of the corners in the first section are a bit tight for the motorhome (39'). We were also able to rent a covered boat slip for our boat, make sure you plan ahead for this as there is limited availability on the slips. There were a lot of bugs, however, in the wooded areas of east Texas there are a lot of bugs! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a new park that is only partly open. The people working there were very nice and when the park is completed, it will be a great place to stay. I wish they had a rally hall for rallies and meetings. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed at Lakeside during the July 4th weekend. Had problems with ants. The staff was unprepared for such a large turn out and at times there were confusion within the park whether you needed a pass or not to go within the park. I rented a boat stall also and there was an issue with that. The management is below par and needs major help. Could be a nice park if they could get their act together. The restaurant has decent food if you don't mind a long wait for food and getting up and getting your own drink refill. Not sure why they have waitstaff, they never come around. Do not recommend Lakeside until some major changes take place We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The overall park is OK. However, we ended up with ants all over and in our trailer and caused us to never want to stay there again at any price. Maybe once they finish construction it might be worth another shot. The stay ended up costing us more money then it was worth. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park is new and is still under construction. It appears that there are no restrictions on what type of RV is allowed at the park. People's pets were freely wandering around the park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is well laid out with cement roads and easy access to the sites. We camped in a lake view spot and had beautiful views of the lake. Sites are fairly level and spacious. My in laws rented a cabin while we were there; the cabins are cute and well appointed. Several sites were occupied by full timers and a little messy, but otherwise it is a clean park. We are going back for the 4th of July fireworks on Lake Livingston. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
To begin with-the entrance to this park is terrible. Paved but broken & full of holes. Going very slow is recommended but being on a very busy highway one has to get out of the main road quickly We stayed here but only after checking out every other park in the area & finding nothing better. The paved streets & sites are appreciated but how terribly out of level the sites are is a huge problem. We saw MHs with their front tires off the ground. No trees make it uninviting but they are geared to short term summer visitors & not long term winter guests. They allow dogs to run loose & sites to become quite trashy. The great numbers of cigarette butts around the park were very unattractive. There were areas around the outside of the office/shower building that were in really bad condition. Weeds were waist high & a water pond was full of old water. The girls in the office were very helpful & friendly but the owner was not. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is the weekly rate for a "deluxe" site. We so wanted to give this park a higher rating, the potential is certainly there. Pros: It sits right on Lake Livingston, beautiful view, has a sandy beach, nice shade umbrella’s, chairs, they rent kayaks, there is swimming and a boat launch. Plenty of room to fish from the shore. The swimming pool is beautiful and clean. The park is kept clean and free of liter. We did not use the showers or laundry room but Wi-Fi worked good. There are several small cabins on the property, very attractive. There are tiered rates depending on your view and access to the water. The rates are on the upper end for the area but not out of line. The sites are concrete, all full hook up, but not very level. They slant to the front and most people have resorted to using blocks or lifters of some type. We used our front drive up blocks and had no problem. The people working the office the day we checked in were nice, but “just filling in.” We had a couple of electrical issues, they were addressed and the maintenance man ended up changing our 50A breaker at the box. The cons: when we arrived, our neighbor was plugged into our box, but we were told it was ok, as they were dual 100A boxes. However, after our power kept shutting off, we requested his be moved back to his own site, maintenance did do it and our problems abated for several days until the breaker had to be changed. Cons: no management presence in the park. We saw maintenance workers, but not anyone enforcing or inspecting. There are several longer term workers staying in the park, but they were mostly clean and quiet. On weekends, there are many boats and extra vehicles, rules for extra parking are not enforced, so the roads get a little tight. The dog leash was not enforced and several times we chose not to go outside due to a large dog near us that ran free every time he was out. The owners did not “scoop” and at times the smell in our camp was unbearable in the heat. We mentioned it to management, and they said they would address it, but nothing was ever done during our stay. We probably would not stay here again because of the dog issue. If the loose dogs and smell would not bother you, then it's a great park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very well maintained c/g, full hook ups, 50amp, paved road, easy access, concrete pad, pull thrus, big rig friendly, space around RV, a few shade trees, wonderful view of the lake, grass between sites, picnic tables, we were there during the week when it was quiet but at the weekends it can get busy, spotless bathrooms and well equipped laundry, dog walk with pick up bags, pool, WiFi good, a few local restaurants, sightseeing in the area. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very relaxing, really enjoyed our stay. Even if it was a little windy during the night. It is a very pretty park. Be sure to watch for the park entrance if coming in from the west. The signage for the park is hidden by trees and if not watching, you could pass it on by! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a good, well kept campground, with paved sites and streets, pool, hot tub and exercise room. It also has a little beach (no glass seen) and a nice little water park for the kids. The management is nice and very helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Best around and very nice people, but very neglected through winter-trash cans overflowing and not emptied for weeks, old car tire laying out, wrecked trailer on premises, trash blown around and not picked up, dog park neglected etc. Wi-Fi is poor. We were upset-they said we couldn't reserve a certain spot, but if it was available when we arrived, we could have it. We arrived-our favorite spot was available, but they said we couldn't have it-it was RESERVED for someone spending 2-3 nights. We had planned to stay 3 months. Our feelings were hurt so we stayed only one month and moved and took 3 friends with us. That slap in the face cost them about $2000.00. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here many times and really like it. The roads in the park are concrete and all sites have concrete pads. It's easy in and out. We have a 45' motorhome towing a Crown Vic and never have any trouble. A very friendly park with lots of pot lucks in the clubhouse. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great find! Large, clean, lake view and lakefront sites, concrete pads. Pads sloped enough that to level my coach wheels were off ground several inches making stairs higher as well. Hook up towers were lighted for nighttime convenience however many did not work. Several full time units were trashy or trashed and brought down the overall appearance of an otherwise very nice facility. Great laundry room with five washers and dryers. Nice meeting room and lots of potluck dinners and functions. Very accommodating hosts lived on site. Close to Livingston and major shopping and dining places. Will return when in area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Conveniently located to local eateries, and stores. Many activities available, besides the lake; splash pad, pool, beach area. Overall this could be an outstanding park if they had a few boat slips to park your boat while at the park. Otherwise you either trailer it again or anchor it in the cove. The sites are not all level and we saw a number of "wheels up" around the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved this park! There were plenty of things to do, and the kids had a great time playing in the pool and the beach area. The park was clean and well-maintained. My family was able to get 2 cabins right across from our RV site, so it worked out very well for all of us. We did book 3 months in advance, so that helped to be able to pick exactly which site we wanted. My only issue was that my sister has a boat and the boat launch was a little tough to navigate, but that wasn't my issue. Overall this park was great and we will certainly be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The staff here is very friendly. The park is very clean and offers alot of activities for kids. Our #1 problem for the park was that the concrete sites are not close to being level. Our 42' 3 axle MH had all the wheels on the right side off the ground when the leveling system was engaged. Most campers here are using small wheel base trailers or 5th wheels. Not big rig friendly. Laundryroom was very clean with ample numbers of washers/dryers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is normally well maintained, not this time. The pool was green and not open. The grass was so tall the dog would not walk through it and had not been cut in at least a week. The sandy beach was covered with liter and dead fish. It smelled really bad. The pavilion is now a workout room. Our club is thinking of moving. The office was closed when we arrived (11:30-1:00), and were told in a not so nice manner, to go away and come back when it was open. I am not sure we will come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent Memorial Day weekend here and loved it! This is a wonderful place for families. It has an awesome water park for the kids, a swimming pool and a beach at the lake. It is a very quiet place at night. No loud partying!!! We hope to go back again soon. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an extremely beautiful park with continued returning guests. Has all the amenities you can think of. And their grounds are totally maintained. We met some of the nicest people we have known, at this park. We were here all through the winter. The owners and staff are helpful and friendly. We started at a daily rate, to weekly and then to the monthly. We wished we would've never left. The light bill was our only problem, or I think we would've stayed the rest of our life. There is no point in looking for a nicer park if you need to be long term. And short term cannot be beat! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park with friendly and helpful staff. We spent a month and are coming back next year for two months. We enjoyed it very much. Great views of the lake, great amenities, clean facilities and laundry etc. Highly recommend it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed at this resort twice and have enjoyed it very much. The resort is clean and the staff are friendly. This is a great resort on the water, we will come back again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I do not understand the last review, good paved roads in the park with pull-thru easy parking sites, no problem with my 34ft motor home and a toad that I did not unhook. We have two dogs and everyone we talked to or saw had their dogs taken care of. Staff was great and helped find my wife's wallet. Showers and laundry room where very clean and they did have two washers and one dryer that they had problems with but they where replacing them. It is a family park so yes the kids where all around which means you have to be careful no big deal. Pool and beach where fun and had a great time. Views of the lake are great and nice breeze off the lake. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park especially for kids. Great pool and splash park, fishing, boat ramp. Some sites are very short and narrow, not all have picnic tables, not really "big rig" friendly. Lots of rules by management about not parking cars/boats/trailers on the streets and not leaving dogs unattended outside - all ignored by most guests and definitely not enforced in any way by management. Bathrooms and laundry dirty and messy. Laundry had more than half of both washers and dryers out of order with no evidence of trying to repair them. Staff marginally helpful and courteous. Lots of small children around park on bikes and scooters without any adult supervision at all hours of day/night. Have to be extremely careful driving on the interior park roads. Entry had large potholes next to drive that are difficult to miss in an RV. Other very nice parks/resorts in the area so we would probably not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for three nights. The sites are very nice and large enough for big rigs. We enjoyed our stay at this park. We did not use the laundry or shower facilities. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Awesome! Clean, quaint, quiet! We will be back many times! Beautiful Lake front sites with huge community fire pit near the water. All sites are concrete, and the road are concrete too! Very easy to get in and out with long trailers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great park. We were running from Hurricane Ike, and then we had to leave there after 2 days. The rate reflects a 20% Escapees RV Club discount. Management is great. We left with 2 days paid up yet and before the office opened. My wife called after the office opened and the lady had already credited our credit card since another employee had told her we left early. That is great service. We will definitely be back to this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Really enjoyed this park. Initially used it as an overnight, but ended up staying all weekend. Park is mostly level - though does slope towards the lake a bit. Concrete pads, lots of space between sites, all utilities worked great. Very friendly people - the young lady who cleans the restrooms does an amazing job. The lake is beautiful - great entertainment for the kids, swimming, fishing, etc. Also has boat launch. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Staff was friendly and helpful. Sites were concrete, level and spacious with grass between sites. Wifi worked very good from our site and was free. The only negative would be no shade. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This RV park is very clean and well kept. The concrete sites are almost all pull-throughs and each site has a grassy area next to it. Park would have received a higher rating if all sites had picnic tables. We only saw a few with tables. The lake was very low, and the swimming beach was high and dry. Staff was friendly and helpful. We could not get the wi-fi to work at our site. The park was family oriented and quiet at night. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Great Campground on Lake Livingston! Extra wide concrete roads and pads. We had a lakefront site -- we had the best view in the place! Free hi-speed internet and cable TV as well as full hook-up. Lots of stuff for the kids to do. Sandy beach, pier, and boat ramp. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Needs renovating, but office staff are great. Spaces too close together and a swamp when it rains, and it is too expensive for having no amenities, but it is on the water and the view is great. There is a bar there now, so don't stay there unless you don't mind hearing "boom-da-boom da boom' until 2 AM. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A great place to stay right on Lake Livingston. Big RV spots available on the water, great views, open area. Also has 2 boat ramps, covered boat slips, marina and convenience store on premises. Has hotel next to RV Park as well. A great place to stay, will go there again. Lots of room to walk around and enjoy. Thanks. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
