Nice park. Everything worked and it was quiet. Just stayed one night while passing through. Staff was very friendly and helpful. WiFi and cable both worked well. - Chuck McC

RV Park is set back in the trees far enough off of the road so there is little if any noise from passing vehicles. Office staff very sociable and easy to talk to. Sites are long enough to accommodate both motor home and toad. All utilities functional and easy to hookup to. Showers and bathrooms very clean. Park appears to have some long term residents but no problem for overnight stays. We enjoyed this KOA and we would return again.
Be careful when approaching the entrance from the west on Farm Road 343. There is a hill with a blind spot when turning into the RV park. - Herb Richards

A check of this page shows we stayed here when we left Texas in May 2016; we are back, passing through on our return to Texas for the Winter.
The Workampers who were experienced with this park tragically had to rush home to Louisiana where they lost their home to flooding.
A new crew of very nice people are here working very hard at catch-up.
This is a park cut into the piney woods of East Texas. The woods border the park and make landscaping and grounds maintenance very difficult.
The soil is sand mixed with many millennia of pine needles and coaxing grass is a chore and a knack. This is still a nice park, we like it, but it is not as sharp as it was.
There are a variety of sites. Be careful what you ask for, it can be expensive. All sites are gravel with well placed utilities. They are long enough to leave your tow attached. They are all level, packed gravel.
There is a huge rectangular rally site with full utilities and rally hall.
Some sites have cement patios with furniture, all have a picnic table and fire ring. There is also a dog pen that encloses trees; my dog thought it was great. Check-in at the office was easy and friendly; the camp store is very nice. The grounds are well lit at night.
The ubiquitous Kabins that we are familiar with are placed in the woods. A neat spot for a cabin stay. Much larger, self-contained Kabins, which are more like park models are scattered about the open RV sites.
There is also a pool and small children's playground. My wife and I found hiking trails in the woods.
Wi-Fi was very good, and cable was passable: ok on satellite channels but fuzzy for local stations
The bathrooms and showers are all sparking clean and very comfortable.
We used them. The laundry also looked up-to-date.
The park is very quiet and relaxing. We'll be ready to drive again tomorrow. - Jack B

Small site but well worth the side trip to find it. Staff is very friendly and park is exceptionally clean. - Ppl_rjg

Offered a host site near the entrance since park was full. It was quiet, full hookup and had a view of the woods from our rear window. Ranger Josh volunteered a lot of great history about the park. - sp123

This is quiet little State Park on the edge of the Davy Crockett National Forest. They have five RV campsites with full hookups for only $15 a night. Other campsites are available with water and electricity for $13 a night. The park has a dump station. The RV sites are not level but they are asphalt. Campsites include a picnic table, fire ring with grill-top, a lantern post, and also a waist high cooking grill. The towering pines and oaks are magnificent and there are plenty of birds and other wildlife.The Park Ranger and staff are very friendly and helpful. This park offers free firewood! The park office sells bagged ice for $2 a bag.
We enjoyed the peaceful serenity of camping among the East Texas pines. It was so quiet. We even had an armadillo come into camp after dark for a short visit. - rvbozo

We enjoyed our campsite very much. Great bicycling throughout the park! However, splash pad would not work, and it took two calls to the office before maintenance took care of the problem. Women's restroom had extremely filthy toilets with dead bugs covering everything. The showers were "out of order" with missing tiles, torn up flooring, and no shower curtains. The men's room had slightly cleaner toilets but also had dead bugs everywhere. The shower was disgusting! Something very large and feathery fought and died in there, with bird droppings everywhere. Two maintenance men happened to show up to clean the restrooms. We observed them from our campsite. They went in, and came right out and put new locks on the doors to lock the place up tight. Definitely not worth $30 a night. - DE-N

The park office signage requests registration at the store/office, which was locked. There was a woman inside on the telephone but she didn't answer the door. Another camper told us to go to the train depot to register, so we did. A site can be reserved in advance but individual sites are first come-first served. The sites are paved pull throughs compromised of turnouts off the narrow access road. Some are very bumpy and unlevel. Others are okay. The bathrooms in the RV campsite loop were disgusting. On a Friday afternoon around 2 pm this is what we saw: Men's bathroom was dirty. The two shower stalls share a common dressing area. Only one stall had a shower curtain. The Women's room had a similar layout but both showers did have curtains. The showers were full of dead and soggy bugs. The toilet seats were old and discolored, spotted with dirt and missing the original finish. Dead bugs were on every flat surface including the sinks. There were soap and paper towels. The other shower room by the pavilion was unusable: no electricity. How this facility achieved a 7.5 Good Sam rating is a mystery to me. As far as the rest of the park, the various buildings and amenities were dirty, broken down and borderline dangerous. The railroad is the obvious beneficiary of the money saved through neglecting everything else. There is a nice lake for fishing and some woods for a short hike. No reason for us to ever come back here. This was a poor value for the cost. - leorah

Heavily wooded sites and limited big rig access. The group area has no sewer, but better big rig access.
The park is a bit run down and need maintenance. It is not as well maintained as it was when a state park. - TXiceman1

Arriving at the gate with a reservation we found a sign saying $20 per night with 50% discount for national senior pass. When I made the reservation online with no assistance, a $10 service fee and a total of $7.50 discount was applied and my 2 night stay was now $35. I called rec.gov and after 52 minutes of hold and transfer was told the $10 was for electric (it isn't) and then was told they would send in to the park to get authorization to refund me $5. The park is becoming derelict looking due to many downed trees and underbrush. We were greeted by the nice park host who moved us to a walk-in site that he said would be better for us. That was the best part of our stay. We would caution those making online reservations to watch for overcharging at the federal sites. We have stayed at COE parks for 10 years with none of this hassle. - tcurex

We really like this park. It is an open wooded park. All the lakeside campsites are for tenting. The Dogwood loop is for RV"s. The outside section of the Dogwood loop has w/e at every site . The other campsites are electric only with shared water as long as you bring plenty of hose ( 150 ft ). Some of the sites do have a slight grade but I have seen much worse. The park was well maintained and the camphost very friendly. The only reason I give it an 8 is no water at every site and a few ae not level. - TEXASBOY

Even tho the park road makes a loop around the lake, use the West entrance. It's tight, but possible to get a 45' MH to your site. Sites are deep in length and wide, but you have to pick the most level area. We didn't use any utilities, no 50A, so it was dry camping. Nice park atmosphere and quiet. - duster340

Not exactly a "destination" campground, but there are things to do in the area. Owner extremely friendly and helpful. Our dog loved playing with the campground dogs. Looks pretty primitive but it has all the necessities and they are in good shape. We would come here again without a doubt, if we were in the area. - Grumpier99

Disregard that prior review ("Best RV park in Texas"). This is a clean, plain, remote (12 miles from Palestine), run-down looking CG with shaded grassy sites, loose dogs, a friendly manager, no WiFi or cable TV. Didn't see a bath or shower house. The grass needed mowing. It was great for an overnight after a long tow, but not much else. - Prof Bill

Best RV park in Texas. Small enough to get personal attention but large enough to have all the amenities of a large park. Laundry/Restrooms were very clean and park was well maintained. It was my best RV stay in Texas. I rate it excellent and would recommend it to anyone. - dhillebrandt

This park is OK for 1 night. I had a pull thru site that was paved, electricity was good, but the the park roads are bad, and there is a lot trash laying around the park. Would I stay here again, I might. - Joceil

30 amp at our site was broken but the 50 amp worked fine. It's a good value if you are just passing thru. Sites are close together. Noisy location, easy on-and-off bypass road. We would stay here again if we were passing thru. - lstaff

It is a great park just off US 6 for a stop over. With CC's Smokehouse restaurant on site makes it a nice stop for us, grabbed supper there. We would use this park again if coming thru this area. The only service lacking was cable, but can't have everything. Great for a stop over. - belanga

Nothing fancy, just a place to stay overnight. A little highway noise. Our Garmin GPS could not find the park. The owner came and got us from a nearby gas station. Trees are planted,but not yet big enough for shade. - geode

The new owner of this park lives onsite and is very nice. The price includes free excellent wifi and many cable channels. 50 amp service. Easy access from the road, level sites. Very clean grounds, well cared for. Call for directions the gps will take you to the wrong location. The park is close to the road, some noise but not excessive. My bedroom fan cancels the noise which slows down at night. We stayed three nights, felt very safe and would definetly stay here again. There are some long term trailers, but no messes. Nice place to walk the pets. - Janefairlight

This park could use some TLC. Sites appear to have had some small gravel covering them at one time. Now they are mostly covered with grass. Roads could also use some additional rock or gravel on them. Sites are mostly level & utilities(water & electric) worked well. Wi-Fi also worked well. There is some road noise from Hwy 59. This park works for an easy in & out 1 night stay, but is overpriced for an extended stay. - c lewis

Got stuck in the mud at our campsite. How does this happen? We were directed to our site down a narrow muddy road. Whe we got there had to let them know they had me going the wrong direction based upon the location of my and everone else's hookups. I backed out and drove around out of the park and back in. When it was time to leave we found it impossible to back out because we were axle deep in mud. We were able to pull forward and back out of the park. We called the owners and received no response. What a mess. How can someone charge you to get stuck in their mud? - Dave from the Lou

Pretty easy to get in to with a motorhome and does have pull throughs. Very shady under the pines. Owner was nice. We arrived after dark. Lots of permanent residences, quite a few in older trailers which were not in the best of condition. Maintenance the next morning started mowing and I could hear the mower hitting stuff. I had to go outside to stop him after he threw stuff and it hit my motorhome. We left shortly after that and will not go back. - tlkhorses

Lots of trees. Manager was very friendly. Dirt roads were in acceptable condition. You could definitely hear the traffic on US 79 although being so close to the highway made it easy to find. - Dr. Pam

Park is primarily full timers and is unkempt and has very few defined sites. It needs TLC . Access road has major pot holes and the roads in the park are not very well defined. WIFI is excellent , but TV is offered if you stay full time. I would not stay there again. Parks like this that charge $30.00 give RV parks a bad name. - johnmack

This campground has no particularly wonderful facilities, but it is quite inexpensive and certainly adequate. The sites are gravel but wide and easily accessed. Most people in the campground seem to be either workers or students, but that was really not a problem. The Wi-Fi was good and fast, and the laundry was convenient and inexpensive. Our rate reflects a one week stay - basically seven nights for the price of six. We would probably stay here again. - wandrr

$20 per day rate is based on one week stay. All 40 sites have full utilities and most are pull through. Large spaces with a gravel pad and sparse grass between the spaces. This space (21) is not level, the fifth wheel is on two rows of levelers. Free good unsecure WIFI and Verizon MIFI is on 4G with good reception. For those staying at least a week, a Direct TV box is issued with good reception. This park was purchased earlier this year by the owner of the adjacent golf course. New managers are helpful however you are not assisted to your site. I was told they are adding improvements to the park. There is no pool, no trees in the sites and no clubhouse or showers. Several RVs are in major disrepair. Some of the campsites are very cluttered and it seems to be mostly workers in the park. It was quiet since it is 2000 feet from the highway with some train noise but not too close. The lane into the park is somewhat rutted and narrow with mostly gravel surface. There are not any lights. Grocery, shopping or attractions are approximately 6-10 miles from the park. Several dogs are loose in the park, although they stay fairly close to the site where they belong. - annc

We stayed here for 2+ months while moving. It is very quiet and clean. Beautiful view beside a big pond, free fishing and use of row boat. Pet friendly. Large laundry area that is clean and accessible any time to residents. Ample parking. We even had room for a trailer, moving truck and 2 vehicles to park the night before leaving. The manager was very helpful and kind, always there for any of our questions. Nacogdoches only has a few other RV parks nearby and we looked at them all. None were as nice and spacious. We wanted space, peace, and clean and we got it here. It has a huge pond that you don't see at other area parks. I would happily recommend it and if we ever come back to the area we will stay here again. - Fosterz

This place is still a dump! We have stayed here before while visiting family in the area but not again. Grass unmowed, grass burrs throughout the park, and utilities dangerous. The list goes on and on. Lots of potential here but nothing is being done to improve things. On the other hand, the sites have a beautiful view of the lake, which is full now. It's heartbreaking to see such a pretty setting not being used. We will not return here. - jayc

Nice location off Highway 59. The campground has great potential but is a wreck! Two restrooms: One with a door kicked in. Both rated "D" for DISGUSTING! Office is a mess. Entry road is dirt/mud/potholes. Did not feel comfortable/safe. Would avoid if there was another choice. - User2909
