This was our second time at this park within a year. It's nice and quiet, even when it's crowded. Sites are spacious. Lots of trees. New amphitheater platform is nice. There was quite a bit of flooding this trip, so trails were not as accessible. We just stayed one night because this was a half-way spot on our travels. We camped at Atlanta State Park in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
Atlanta is about a 20-minute drive for groceries and some restaurants.

We stayed March 22-29, lot 16. Excellent helpful staff. The park is beautiful, with nature everywhere you look. Gorgeous view of the lake. There is a lot of fallen timber that really should be cleaned up. Cell signal was excellent. We use a satellite dish for our TV. Dish placement was tricky, but we made it. Would for sure return for another visit. We camped at Atlanta State Park in a Travel Trailer.
The rangers and volunteers provide friendly service to go with the quiet natural setting. The pull-through sites are narrow, curved pads, parallel to the paved road. Towering trees provide plenty of shade and block satellite reception. AT&T phone reception was good, data signal was poor. The full hook-up utilities were good. A daily entrance fee or state park pass is required in addition to the camping fee. We would stay here again. We camped at Atlanta State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here 2 nights. Heavily forested park. Good access roads and pads. Very helpful park staff. 2 boat ramps to access lake. Around 10 miles from Atlanta, TX if you need something. Very nice leaf colors changing in the fall. We camped at Atlanta State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the most secluded parks that we have stayed at. Not a lot of campers and the sites are spaced well apart. Beautiful area,park is going through some changes with logging out dead trees and cleaning up the areas. The bathrooms were spotless although small. The staff were excellent and helpful. Kind of out of the way but a great place to stay. We would stay here again. We camped at Atlanta State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground was scenic, shaded, quiet and relaxing. We had full hookups at our pull-through site #16. We enjoyed watching the birds along the shoreline of the lake. Terrific sunset! No cable or Wi-Fi, but our AT&T cellphones showed a strong signal at our site and the surrounding area. Texas State Parks are a terrific value. We would stay here again if in the area.

Very pretty state park, friendly staff and camp hosts. We stayed in “Knights Bluff” section; it was very quiet. Full hook up pull through sites, some more curved than others, but we had no problem with our 37’ and tow. Texas is now letting you fish free from the banks of their parks. Beautiful lake around this park, great sunsets, and good fishing. The park was clean and obviously trimmed and cared for, but still “wild” enough to satisfy. Walking trails were nice, didn’t notice any litter. Our Verizon phone and Wi-Fi card were both very temperamental here, work one minute, not the next. Park does not have Wi-Fi. The only other detractor was that fact that this park does not have a gate, its open all night long. There is no “live in” staff here, only local police presence. There is a bit of traffic driving through at night on the weekends. We were not disturbed, but didn’t feel a secure as one normally does in a state park. There are plenty of deer, raccoon, squirrel and other animals. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it for a quiet restful experience. We camped at Atlanta State Park in a Motorhome.
We stayed here overnight on the way home to Houston. The park is very quiet and has towering pine trees for shade. We were in a pull through with full hookups. The park was not crowded on a Monday night. The lake is walking distance from the campsites and was peaceful and pretty. We would stay here again. We camped at Atlanta State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice quiet park. Well kept restrooms available. Lake is nice for fishing and fish cleaning stations are nearby. Nice open field for playing large group games is near the playground. We camped at Atlanta State Park in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful camping sites -- three loops, and prices vary (as is standard in TX state parks) by amenities. We camped en route to Kentucky. This park is outstanding. Even though we arrived after the office closed, our experience was wonderful. The staff at this park was one of the most friendly anywhere I've visited in Texas. The sites were sheltered from the weather within the tall pines, and the lake was in good shape. Highly recommended. We camped at Atlanta State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We really enjoyed this state park. The sites are very shaded, paved, and level. Our site was close to the lake, so we were able to walk to the lake to fish. The park was not crowded, and we had a large site that had a firepit, grill, and picnic table. This is definitely on our list of favorites. We camped at Atlanta State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is about 10 miles off of US-59 but it is well worth the drive. They have full hookup pull through sites and the staff wants you to feel like you are at home. The rest rooms are clean. In any state park in Texas you do not have to have a fishing license to fish which is another plus to this park. We stay here at least two times a year.

Agree with the others: a beautiful park with big, clean sites. Gorgeous lake and lots of room to explore. We stayed here off season and had the place to ourselves. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Atlanta State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park: has nice level pull through and back in sites. Be cautious if you get here after the office is closed. There were cones up on most of the sites to mark them reserved, except for two. We chose one of the two unmarked sites and went the next morning to pay, then we were told everything was booked and we had to pack up and move to another site at the other end of the park that was covered in poison ivy. We had already paid through a drop box for the first night and they wanted us to move that morning when check out was at 2pm. We camped at Atlanta State Park in a Travel Trailer.

What a gem, like many state parks, it is well taken care of, big sites, not close to next campers, park people very nice and helpful, we have a big rig and it fit in nicely. No Wi-Fi, no cable TV, our satellite dish couldn't find a station either, trees, trees, trees. Very pretty place. Kid friendly but they were not a problem for us oldsters. Have lake, fish, boat, chill out: good place. We camped at Atlanta State Park in a Motorhome.
