For those of you who want the park to offer cocktails at 5 o'clock every night, this is not the park for you. But for the other 99% of us, this is a good park! The staff is very helpful. They are willing to bend over backwards to make your stay with them very comfortable. This is a family owned park and the family is at the park daily attending to your needs as a camper. The park has many permanent residents and many of the trailers of these residents are older models, belonging to retirees who live there.

The park staff were helpful in directing us to all of the local spots to visit. They were forthcoming with any with answers to all questions which we ask of them. The staff guided every client into their spot, which was a great convenience to us. Since the water level of Lake Buchanan has been down, the water is not as close as it once was. However, it was only 100 yards from the campsites. The staff at Poppy's Point have created several "roads" which gave us access to a plethora of fishing and swimming opportunities. Additionally there were numerous wildlife sightings such as Canadian geese and herons. Bring your binoculars. The sunsets and star gazing are good for the soul. We camped at Poppy's Pointe Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Visiting the East and West shore above Poppy Point is a must for any visit. Lake Buchanan is huge, there many attractions all around the lake. Additionally, you can see many of the other lakes, I highly recommend Inks lake. Explore, have fun.

If you want a nice, leisure stay at a nice RV park, DON'T stay here. Even though we had paid for several days, we quietly disconnected and left very early the morning after our arrival. Slots are SMALL, there's no shade, it's not anywhere near what was advertised, NOISY till late night, kids on four wheelers and ATV's till late at night. I would not recommend this park at any $$ rate. The best thing about this park: we found Big Chief Park, it's very nice! We camped at Poppy's Pointe Resort in a Motorhome.

This was a very well maintained campground. The owner was out every day, working around the grounds, and was very helpful and polite. It appears that some people choose to rent spaces by the month, for there were quite a few trailers but not a lot of people. The camp is very quite, the pool was clean and very enjoyable. The kids were able to ride bikes, fish and swim and had a good time. This campground had a peaceful, family type environment We camped at Poppy's Pointe Resort in a Travel Trailer.

To be fair, we didn't even get out of our Class C. We were so disappointed just driving through. The pictures on the website were so misleading. Looked more like a mobile home park that was way past its prime. Pool torn up, overgrown, just a mess. We literally just turned around and left without ever getting out. Lost our $35 but we still think it was a good decision to leave. Went to Canyon of Eagles, just down the road and it was great. We camped at Poppy's Pointe Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground. A little older than some but very well kept up. Owners very friendly and constantly walking around visiting and picking up any trash that might be around. All inclusive a little pricey. Lake down now but when full, water is right at your back door, 10-15 feet away. Fishing was good off concrete wall spring time. Swimming pool was kept spotless and plenty big. Definitely will go back this summer several times. Weekly and monthly rates are good. We camped at Poppy's Pointe Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
