The staff were friendly but this park is showing its age. The showers were downright terrible with mold in all of the shower stalls near the pool. There are a couple of mobile homes right in front of the place and we saw shady looking characters entering and leaving them. I suspect that they have had some trouble in the past because they require campsite issued tags for each vehicle, visitors included. We camped at Pin Oak Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
Ok, this park probably deserves a 5-4, but to charge for internet service (via Tengo) and then it doesn't work and they don't seem to care ("it's been down all day, not sure why"), is simply not acceptable. Internet today is the 4th utility and for full timers it is more important than cable. Also, this park is terribly noisy with freeway noise. Sure, people are nice, but I will never come back.

Definitely overpriced but closest campground we could find to attend a wedding in the area. Lots of families with kids. Pool was full of kids and was closed in the evening. Poor WiFi service. Probably wouldn't stay here again. Sites were ample and nice trees. We camped at Pin Oak Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.
In general, we liked this park, and actually added in an extra day to spend more time in the area. On the positive side, you couldn't ask for more friendly greeting and expeditious check-in. Truly happy people who seem to go out of their way to make you feel welcome (including the kids). Swimming pool was clean and very busy with lots of families and children. Perhaps a bit small for the overall park demand because it was crowded, but everyone had fun and cooled off. The restrooms and showers, while functional, were somewhat dirty and tired looking. Could use a thorough scrubbing and some cosmetics to make it look more presentable. Did I mention how nice the staff were? Worth mentioning again. Spaces weren't as large as others but ours came equipped with fire ring, good water pressure, and a clean trash can. We appreciate having the crew come around and collect the trash daily. The wooden playground in the middle by the pool was decent and safe. Mini golf was kind of lame. It too could use some touch ups. There is a paint ball outfit connected to the park, but we're not the types. People here were so friendly! Would stop by again. We camped at Pin Oak Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.
This campground is overpriced for what it offers. The sites are pull-through combination sites. In other words you pull through and then someone can back into the site behind you. They do offer single pull through sites at a higher nightly rate. The park roads and sites are hard-packed dirt with some gravel mixed in. Fortunately it didn’t rain while we were there. Each site had a picnic table and fire ring but the sites are narrow so if your neighbor has a campfire it will be very close to your RV. Over-the-air television is weak and the park does not offer cable TV. The pay for use Wi-Fi is available through Tengo and was is next to useless. Highway noise from the nearby Interstate Hwy 44 was loud. I would hate to try sleeping in a hybrid or popup trailer with the amount noise. I felt the park’s pool was small considering it had an eight foot deep end. The small fishing lake was very nice and there was no state fishing license required and no fee to fish it. The showers and restrooms were very clean. We camped at Pin Oak Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was on overnight stop on a trip through the area. We arrived around 6:30 in the evening and left around 10:00 in the morning. We never saw anyone in the office, so left payment in the night deposit. This seemed much over-priced for a winter stop over. The water in the restrooms and showers was freezing cold, so in my mind, the showers were not usable at this time of year. We camped at Pin Oak Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a well maintained campground with many full time residents. Staff was friendly and the park was quiet. However, I resent the fact that this $25.00 campground used Tengo net for their internet provider. This pay for use internet is the most sub-standard service in the US and unusable most of the time. When I pay $40.00 for a $25.00 campground I expect free working wifi service. Very disappointed with this campground. When I left I looked to see if there were a hidden KOA sign somewhere.

Gravel, long pull throughs combination of two lots. Plenty of overflow parking available. Restrooms are clean but dated. Showers worked well. The water feature is a small pond. OK to walk around. Pool table was being replaced while I was there. We camped at Pin Oak Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.
Pros: Easy access from the interstate, big rig friendly (we were in a 40' with toad: did not have to unhook), good power & water and friendly staff. Cons for us: No cable, no over the air TV either even with a new antenna. Weak Verizon strength. Good for an over night if needed. We camped at Pin Oak Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.
Pleasant, clean but aging park. The putt putt course, swimming pool and playground could use some TLC. We would chalk this up to charm if the price were lower. Seemed a bit high considering the run down condition of some features of the park. Standard sites are close together with maybe 12 feet of grass between campers. Campground hosts were friendly. Enjoyed the view of the pond and little walking bridge. Overall a good experience. We camped at Pin Oak Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.
First time camping in our new (to us) motorhome. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice mature tree shaded sites, plus open sites available for those looking for satellite access. Could not pick up TV signal and no cable, so bring movies for rainy days (they do have small selection of DVDs to rent). Very reasonable prices in their General Store. This is a campground that we could definitely see ourselves coming back to visit. We camped at Pin Oak Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Large, attractive tree-shaded sites. Large pond on site. Escort to site. Full hookups. Very friendly host. Looks like it is set up for full Halloween celebration this coming weekend. No TV reception except for 2 Christian stations. Internet supposed to be limited to one hour, but didn't actually cut off. We camped at Pin Oak Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.
This is a family friendly campground. The pool is clean. Bathrooms and showers are clean. The mini-golf course is old and in need of repair, but gives a back-to nature feeling with the moss and tree cover. The camp has a bounce house for young children and paint ball activities, but I have no first-hand knowledge of these. I especially appreciate the tree-cover throughout the park. Owners are friendly. We camped at Pin Oak Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here on Memorial Day weekend, Friday-Monday, so the place was packed, row upon row of RVs right next to each other, each with a fire pit. It was clean, and the employees were helpful. There is a small private lake to fish in, and plenty of space to walk the dogs. The spaces were pull through or back-in, depending on whether you paid for a premium site (or deluxe site and whether you arrived before the people in the space behind you did so you had to back in). They did not ask nor charge extra for our four kids or four dogs. There was a pool, putt-putt golf, general store, tandem bike rental, cabins. All sorts of vehicles/RVs/tents stayed here. It was close to a Dollar General, a gas station, and Washington (where there are grocery stores, Walmart, restaurants, etc), and Six Flags. I did not like that they did not enforce a quiet hour/time, as the folks beside us and behind us were loud. The price was a weekend special of $113. I would definitely stay here again.
