Lake Murray State Park is a very pretty and, from what we saw, a well cared for park. There are multiple campgrounds and a variety of sites- FHU, partial hookups, pull-through, back-in, lakeside, open, shaded, heavily wooded and secluded. The park does not take reservations for campsites. For our 40' motorhome the park staff recommended we look for a site in Elephant Rock campground. We chose #16, a pull-through with FHU, a grill, fire ring, a big grassy yard on one side and with some shade trees, but still clear enough to get satellite reception (i.e., football). The lake water level was very low. The weather was rainy and dreary during our short stay so we didn't make use of the water activities, but we enjoyed the drive around the whole lake and a visit to Tucker Tower Nature Center in the park. Park staff, rangers and volunteers were very friendly and helpful. There was some construction going on and we were glad to see a state spending money on its parks. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Lake Murray State Park / Elephant Rock in a Motorhome.Undo

This is a beautiful park on the edge of Lake Murray. The pull through sites are level and it does have a number of sites with nice trees between them. The campground hosts are friendly and helpful. We would stay there again. We camped at Lake Murray State Park / Elephant Rock in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We chose this park randomly, we were leaving Dallas early afternoon and wanted to find somewhere not too far away. We checked our Allstays iPad app and this park was noted. As always we check out other 'campers' reviews and thought this one sounded pretty good. We arrived and were absolutely delighted! This park is an absolute gem! The sites are wide and long and pretty level, the hook ups perfect and each site has a grill and a fire pit! We called ahead and were told to just go and pick our own spot and that the camp hosts would be along later in the day to collect our camping fee. There were so many wonderful sites we drove around a couple of times before deciding. There are some sites directly on the lakeside, some nestled in the trees and some more appropriate for a big rig like ours. We were initially only going to stay for 3 days but extended for another 2. Peaceful, well maintained, beautiful sun sets, plenty of wildlife and walking trails and the cheapest laundry we have encountered on our 3 months of travelling. Camp hosts are friendly and provided us with plenty of information about the surrounding area. They are also currently expanding the park and building more sites. Fantastic!

All the sites had level concrete pads and nice separations between sites. Restroom was clean . They have a laundry on site. We will be coming back to stay. Wish they would allow reservations though. Would have given this site a 10 if reservations were allowed We camped at Lake Murray State Park / Elephant Rock in a Motorhome.Undo

This is our favorite RV park. We come here at least twice a year. Sites are flat, well spaced and clean. Trails and lake access is wonderful. We camped at Lake Murray State Park / Elephant Rock in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

This is one of our favorite stops. It is a state park campground with excellent facilities for a large rig. We parked a 36' coach with towed vehicle and did not have to unhook the towed vehicle. The pads are level concrete and the utilities are placed well for hooking up. There is plenty of room on the gravel portion of the pull through sites to park another vehicle. There are nearby trails through the woods where the dog enjoys walks. We camped at Lake Murray State Park / Elephant Rock in a Motorhome.Undo

We really liked this park, and would stay here again. Restrooms were clean, park is clean, and the cement pads were a definite plus. We rode around to the other parks at Murray on our motorcycle, and would say this is the nicest park Murray has. We camped at Lake Murray State Park / Elephant Rock in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Beautiful and probably the cleanest State park we've stayed in. Access for big rigs is excellent and the concrete pads are very level with long sites for parking towables. Many shaded sites with shrubs providing additional lateral privacy and plenty of room for slideouts. Elephant Rock is first come first served basis only. The other Park RV areas not as clean but are reservable. Great boating, fishing, golf available. Low handicappers may choose to travel a few miles to Chickasaw Pointe. We stayed 3 days in a motorhome. We camped at Lake Murray State Park / Elephant Rock in a Motorhome.Undo

I really enjoyed this park. We got in on a Friday afternoon and got one of the last waterfront parks available. We were able to jump right out of the RV and swim in the lake. The water was unbelievably clean! The part that sucked was the pool (which we couldn't use) was too far away anyways, they should open that up to RV'ers. Otherwise it was a nice place with a great view plenty of spots to choose from. We'll go back. We camped at Lake Murray State Park / Elephant Rock in a Motorhome.Undo

Very nice state park with clean restrooms and showers. You do need to pay to use the showers, but the rates are reasonable and I'd wager a guess that the fee is the reason the showers and restrooms are as nice as they are. Many of the sites have excellent shade trees, and the Lake is very accessible. We will probably camp here again. We camped at Lake Murray State Park / Elephant Rock in a Motorhome.Undo

This is a good destination site for lake recreation. Our site was gravel and concrete. It was spacious, level, and had good access to hookups. Entry and exit were easy. Parking near hookups requires detaching the towed vehicle. There were lots of trails and grass for walking the dog. We camped at Lake Murray State Park / Elephant Rock in a Motorhome.Undo

A wonderful family friendly state park. Stayed with kids and grandkids and found plenty to do and keep everyone happy. Sites at the Elephant Rock campground are level with lots of grass space in between. Secluded sites among the trees are available as well as sites at the waterfront. Staff was friendly and willing to help. The park is a real bargain and a wonderful place to stay. Put this one is on the must stay list.
