Cordial staff meets you at the gate and escorts you to your site. Quiet setting among the trees. Hosts were very helpful in recommending the local attractions. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

It's a lovely, quiet campground surrounded by corn and bean fields. The sites are long, flat and gravel covered with a concrete patio. Our section was laid out as buddy sites so you are facing the camper beside you. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Be sure to check out the Surf Ballroom. And don't miss the Green room where hundreds of artists have signed the walls, doors, ceiling and even the sink! If possible, attend a dance there. Lots of fun. The Buddy Holly Crash site is a little hard to find, but worth it.

We camped here two separate nights with friends. We were in the back, newer area in a pair of "buddy" sites. Sites were gravel and exceptionally level and long with well located full hookups and concrete patios. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We would use this campground anytime we are in the area. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Our site was very long and level. We got a satellite friendly site. Over the air TV was good. We were next to the "telephone" booth which had a WiFi AP so our internet was good. Good laundry, honor system $2.00 per load.

Side by side utilities, but we did not have any one next to us. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Surf Ballroom is about 5 miles away and worth seeing. The site of the plane crash , Richie Valens, Big Bopper, Buddy Holly is just a short drive north of town. The area of the crash site was muddy and had lots of mosquitoes. We were lead to our site by the camp host.

Tried the state park first: crowded and noisy, very noisy. Went up the road to Oakwood and very glad we did. Nice wide spot "up the hill", easy in/out, utilities worked as advertised.The ladies who were the hostesses could not have been any better. They were fun to interact with, knew the area well and kept the campground orderly, quiet and clean. Would stay here again. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice place. There are lots of trees, but some of the sites are out in the sun. Some of the pull-through sites are very long. There is a laundry and a little church, and wildlife roaming. This is about 6 miles off the interstate. Facilities are showing some wear, but they are clean. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

Basic long gravel pull-thrus. Nothing fancy. Kind of out in the middle of "no where", but was a place to stay for the night and we didn't have to un-hook! Nice lady, nice shady site, level. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

It's a pretty basic RV park, but great for boaters or fishermen. We just stayed here for one night.

The park is just across from the lake. It has its own historic church on the grounds.

The sites are roomy and well separated. The park is quiet. The water supply is well regulated and even softened!

There is a 1 1/2 tour boat ride available after Memorial Day. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Buddy Holly's crash site is nearby, but we thought a visit would be inappropriate. It's only the site. No one is trying to make money off of it. Still a bit macabre.

This is a very quiet, peaceful campground, close enough to town for shopping and dining, but far enough away to give a country feel. The pull-through sites are long and level. The only negative is the television reception. Very limited channels. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Surf Ballroom is a must-see. Much better than I thought it would be. Buddy Holly, Big Bopper, and Ritchie Valens plane crash site is in a farmer's field of a gravel road. A mowed path leads a quarter mile back to the memorial.

As mentioned the sites are really long in the back area. The front area of the park is basically set up for seasonals.
The only thing I did not care for was the shared sites. You pull in and share utilities with your neighbor. You can be a little close on your utility side but on your door side there is plenty of room. They park you so that your stairs come out on the patio.
The park is kept clean, quiet at night and only a couple of miles from town. We would definitely come back here if in the area. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Clear Lake is a nice town with the Surf Ballroom which is a step back in time.
During the summer months they have Thursdays On Main where they block off the main street in town and have different types of vendors. The park is set up for fun thiungs for the kids.
