This RV is nestled in the piney woods of Northeast Texas and overlooks a beautiful pond. Enjoyed watching the wildlife in the evenings and taking a stroll around the pond and nature trail.
Great for kids and families, friendly and responsive staff! - CrossCountry13

We camped in a 35' 5th wheel. The sites with sewer, electric, and power were temporarily closed due to construction. Very nice park and typical of why we love Texas state parks. Only downsides were very limited ATT service and some road noise from Hwy 43. We were parked in the Armadillo Run Camping area. Other areas probably wouldn't be as noisy. Park roads to and from the camping areas are narrow and hilly but we had no trouble getting our camper in place. Many of the camp sites were limited on RV length (ours barely fit) and some had slope. However, we'll be back. And, Hwy 43 is a wonderful alternative to Hwy 59 when travelling between Texarkana and Marshall. - Motorcyclekelly

This place is a real gem. Quiet and dark at night, almost spooky. The lake is beautiful. We only stayed 2 nights, but I'd go back again for sure. The shower house was torn down, and they are building a new one, so we showered in the camper. Hiking trails were ok. - Bob806

A nice, clean park. Lots of hiking, plenty of room between sites. - ahh-scapers

This is a delightful little park. Very clean from the grounds to the bathhouse. New owners are really working hard to make it this way. And they are very friendly. Very quiet. Each site has a BBQ furnished. Plenty of OTA TV. There is a restaurant just across the road, otherwise, pack everything you need as the closest town, Marshall, is about a 25 minute drive. We'll stop again. - donpeterson

The owners purchased this park almost a year ago, and there have been massive improvements to the part. The sites are gravel, but they are level. Each site has its own table with umbrella, grill, and trash, they provide wood for a campfire and have planted trees for each site to have trees (those trees haven't matured yet!). Basically, you can tell that these folks care and treat each customer as if it were a member of their family and you can't ask better than that. When we arrived we had some problems with our water heater, and the owner came over to help and when he couldn't help, he recommended a company that could help. They were interested in us having a good stay at the park. While Caddo Lake State Park is undergoing renovations (full hookups aren't open until next year - 2019, and the park closing in October for renovations), this is a great choice. It's close (within a very short walk) from the Big Cypress Bayou, and the RV park has a dock where you can dock your boat. It's not large, so you can't keep it there, but a nice area to look out over the bayou and access the park from the bayou. The bathrooms are clean and each shower/bathroom has it's own heater and AC and even reading material for the porcelain throne! The laundry is clean but didn't use the machines. It's the attention to detail that gives this place the great rating. - ClaireOKC

This was our first trip to Pine Island CG in Karnack. It has new owners and they have a real nice facility. All sites are pull through. Nice gravel pads and roads. 30 and 50 amp power at most sites. Has BarBQ grills and fire pits at all sites. Real nice bath house with washers & dryers as well. Very friendly and informative about the area. Will definitely return this place is awesome. - Robinsor

The precious man overseeing the park assisted me with pitching my tent providing stronger stakes because Texas dirt is so hard. The bath and laundry facilities were super including heat and air conditioning as needed. I felt so safe as a female camper by myself. - Samantha Maiden

The park is owned by a very nice older couple. They are hard-working and very friendly. We stayed here a month on business and would definitely return. The entrance is a little bit tricky, but you can do it. The sights are fairly roomy and we had a huge 'front yard' for most of our stay. Very mature trees everywhere. Mostly workers or permanents here. All very nice and good neighbors.They have a small laundry on sight with bathroom and shower. Pavilion with porch swing. The man works every day non-stop, mowing, cleaning, and doing general maintenance. The wife was very kind and gave our children rides on her golf cart. Our two year old was calling them 'Uncle' before we left. While were hooking up to leave they owners came out and gave hugs all the way around and kisses to the children; the children hugged them back. They invited us back and said they were sad to see us go. This is not a 'commercial' RV Park, but definitely a friendly one. It felt like a neighborhood by the time we left. I must admit I am always skeptical of any park with 'permanents' and generally avoid them, but this one is somehow different.We will definitely be back. - phillipakelley

First time here. Picked this park because of location in town as we were here on business. About one third of park is workers or residents. Owner's home is in center with nice grassy areas and pavilion. Entrance road is hard surface with gravel sites. We came after a torrential rain storm. No problems for our motorhome. Friendly management, we will return. $20 rate drops to $15 for 2nd and 3rd nights. - Herb Stark

I usually don't drive through and leave a review, but I wanted to give an updated, alternative review for this park. The park is about 1.5 miles outside of Jefferson. When we arrived and headed down the road leading to the camping area, the first thing we noted were several warning signs, some about not stealing as there are hidden cameras. The other signs were various warnings about Off Road Vehicles and disclaimers. All of the signs made us think that theft might be a problem. There is no staff at the park. You are supposed to deposit your money in a box. We saw only one other person in our 15 minutes or so and am not sure what he was doing - he did not appear to be camping. There were only about 4 camping units, with all but one looking either in storage or abandoned. We would not have been comfortable camping there and certainly would not have left our RV there alone. Perhaps the park has a different feel when there are special events in Jefferson, but it did not have an acceptable feel for us, so we moved on. - TheJim

Secluded park less than a mile outside of Jefferson, Texas. Some sites are right on the Big Cypress Bayou. There is lots of room between each of the camp sites. The wifi is excellent. There is a railroad and alligator farm on the premises. I wake up and see as many as 20 to 25 deer each morning. - JayPat1998

This "RV Park" is actually 10 hook-ups next to an ice vending plant. Other than the hook-ups there are no amenities, such as restrooms or showers. It is on a very busy corner with truck traffic and there is lots of day-time traffic for folks coming to buy ice. There is also a very active train track not far away. For check-in there is a number posted that you call and the friendly owner comes out and takes your payment. There are a couple of sites with a little shade; otherwise, it is sunny. When we camped there was only one other RV that looked fairly long-term. If all spaces were occupied, they would be very close together. Also, if all spaces were occupied, it would be back-in only. Although it was challenging, we were able to get satellite for TV with a portable dish. Verizon data signal was strong. The rate if very high for what you get and there are no discounts. The only redeeming factor is that it is very close to everything in Jefferson. We would not stay again. - TheJim

Sites are outdated and not big enough for larger campers. Hard to pull in with large fifth wheels, no patio, off pavement is dirt, straw and leaves. Rude people in office, park "ranger" and park "director" are very rude individuals. Stay away! - Brian Robertson

A great place to stay! The leaves were falling while we were there, but the grounds are beautiful. The sites are well spaced out, but a little bumpy. We did not need to do any leveling, but the utilities on our site were on the curb side of the RV. Not a problem as there was plenty of room to move around and get close enough. There are deer, egrets and plenty of squirrels. The squirrels are a little shy, however. We saw why when a hawk cross the road in front of us carrying a black squirrel for dinner. There is also a small zoo that we spent a couple of hours visiting. - geode

We loved this campground as there were few in the park the weekend we stayed and we had no neighbors on either side of us. The view was beautiful and the full hookup was nice. We would give this an overall rating of 10 except for the rude staff upon check-in. We knew check-in was by 4:45 pm and as it was our first time camping we were taking a little longer than expected on the road. We called en route and told them we were on our way and expected to be there between 4:50 and 5pm per our GPS. The lady answering the phone was very cold and told us if we were not there by 4:45pm the gates would be locked and we would not be allowed in. I told her we were on our way and she was very rude and said again the gates would lock at 4:45pm. We debated on turning around and decided to go for it. We pulled in at 4:46pm and there was a staff member literally pulling the gate closed but we went on in. We were given our paperwork with no directions on the location of anything, nothing. Had it not been for the beautiful surroundings we would not be back. Just went by another campsite and the difference between staff was night and day. I have read other reviews about the rude staff and they were point on. - onlaketime

The negative reviews from years gone by still hold true. Absentee landlord, too many pot holes and families living in run-down trailers. - Halfmast

Stayed overnight passing through. The grass was tall, the road was rough and a little muddy. No restaurant as advertised. Many permanents with rundown campers here. - Jloftin

This will be our last inspection of this park! It is obvious that it will never change. There is a new Black Top road into the property but the park it self is beyond words. We inspect hundreds of parks a year and this one is on the top of the list of being the worst of the worst. The new owner and managers are not experienced in operating an RV Park. They allow very old and ran down RVs in the park with large amount of clutter to be stored around the site. It is obvious that the previous owner passed on the bad habits. All sites are in very bad condition, the electric connections are old and worn. There was no wireless signal, no cable and the park stunk of sewer gas. Both the laundry room and bathrooms are in bad condition and should be condemn. I read a previous review rating this park above a half star, I assure you that either this person is on staff here or they rated the wrong park. The entire park needs to be leveled and start all over! The only thing missing here is the faint noise of a Banjo and guitar playing in the back ground, they have the river! - rvreporterontheroad

This was a gravel parking lot with hookups. Great for overnight if you are traveling instead of a Wal mart. The city park is by the lot and is well kept. We have stayed here twice. The only problem we had was we needed to pay in town which was several blocks away and we don't unhook. - Lesterosu

Traveling on SR59 Linden city park is about 40 miles south of Texarkana. This is a municipal owned RV park. We have a 45' coach & no problems navigating the park. Most sites are pull-thrus, but there are back-in sites also. Each site has 50/30/20 amp electric, city water (tasted good too), and sewer. The sign says 1 night only, but we stayed 2 nites to explore the area. Very small town w/ 1 or 2 restaurants & a Dairy Queen. We dined at Uncle Juan's Mexican Restaurant and had a great dinner. RV Park is across the street from an elementary school, but no children walked thru the park. A city owned recreation park with swings is nearby. Behind the restrooms is a nice concrete walking trail. The restrooms were very clean & did have showers. The surface of the RV park was broken asphalt, but driveable with no problems. Electric voltage was excellent as a new power transformer is adjacent to the main breakers. No fire rings or picnic tables, but for $15.00 nite, a good bargain! We would definitely camp here again. - TravelnSteve

We stumbled across this park using the GoodSam Trip Planner. Wanting to avoid Dallas in our trip back down to South Central Texas, we opted to travel on Hwy 59. We normally would stay in a Wal-mart parking lot, but the temps caused us to look for an inexpensive option that would give us AC for the night. This was perfect for that purpose.
We were greeted by the lady who wrote the grant for the park. The area for the RVs is basically a large gravel parking lot with utilities available for each site. Only a couple of spots have trees.
The park include nicely paved walk ways with exercise stations. The restrooms and showers were clean enough.
For us, this would not be a destination spot, but this was a great place to set up for the night. - User3772
