9 Parks near Carthage, Texas
Nov 2016 - $35.00
Nice park the owners put lots of money to make the place nice.
Only problem I had was the water pressure. We couldn't take a
shower in the rv. No I don't like public showers and I didn't go
into them. Two very nice laundry at a fair price. Parks very clean employees very helpful.
I'll stop again..
Most of there sites are pull through 90 plus% are nice and level. - JustDon

No complaints except wifi was not available. Front desk clerk was courteous but clueless about the wifi system which I feel is extremely inadequate. It is an important feature to me. - SA Seats

Stayed for one night, nice concrete pad. Very disappointed with connections, were located at the end of the space which was long. We were towing our car and did not want to disconnect. Had to have extensions for all 3 connections. - HHitch

Very nice park with great managment. Very clean and well done shower and toilets, laundry, store, and office. Road noise is low. We would definitely stay again. - Greg Luckett

Green Acres RV Park is a motorhome/travel trailer and fifth wheel friendly park with good access to other nearby towns along S.R. 59 between Nacogdoches and Marshall, TX. The manager/owners are good folks, good rates. Beware of parking near permanent Mobile Homes due to the lack of space between each MH. Good laundry facilities. Well maintained landscaping. Unpaved roads in the hot season are dusty, real dusty. I'd stay there again for a few days/weeks. - Landman

Rate reflects no access fees due to Texas State Park Pass. We don't normally give 10's to parks without FHU, but this park deserves it. This is a gem of a state park! Quiet, clean and well kept. This is the nicest state park staff we have ever come across. The park manager is present and active; the office staff is helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Ranger staff, maintenance and camp hosts were all visible and friendly. They welcomed us and went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay. Power was steady at 122V and 55PSI for water. No sewer, but there is a double dump station. It was very clean and provided a trash can and water hook up. They have an island you can access by a walking bridge with picnic tables and trails all thru it. Great bird watching, large boat launch and numerous places to fish and enjoy nature.
There are 2 camping loops, one is 30 amp only, the other is larger, but they only offer about six 50 amp sites at this time. Staff told us they are updating their electricity to the park and hope to have more 50A in the near future. Most are fairly level. The park was quiet while we were here. There are some camping shelters for tenting and a couple of cabins. We plan to return to this park in the future. - Fixn2gocamp

We stayed for a week at lakefront site #52 for $17/night. Non-lakefront is $13. Expect an additional daily entrance fee *per person,* but since we expect to stay at TX state parks for at least 3 weeks, buying the annual pass for $70 will pay itself off. The sites are pretty well spaced apart, some are quite private, but many of them are sloped and too short. The park requires you to park your vehicle on the pavement so we had to park ours sideways while we were unhooked from our 30' 5th wheel. Each site comes with a fire pit, picnic table, hanging hooks, tent pad, and sometimes a cover for the table (ours came with one). No sewer at any of the sites. There is only one bath house for each of the camping loops, and extremely outdated, one of the worst I've come across in my 7 months of full-time RVing. My first shower only lasted 5 minutes because the hot water ran out. Now, I'm wishing I would have listened to the other reviewers and stayed in a regular site away from the lake due to the noise emitted by the coal trains and power plant. It seems to be the loudest at night, lasting just around midnight before it finally quiets down. You can sometimes feel the vibrations from the noise through the RV unit (lasts just a short while). Our Verizon MiFi got 2 bars of LTE, voice was consistent. Got 2 TV channels over the air: some station named COZI (played 60's-80's shows) and a Spanish one. I hate having to write such a poor review for a state park, but this one really does need some improvement to lengthen the parking pads, update the bath houses, and finish building covers for the other sites picnic tables. They can't do anything about the power plant, which sadly will keep us from ever returning on our way back through in the future. - Sara C.

$17 per night was for a mostly level asphalt pad with 50-amp electric and water site in the Bee Tree campground. We do have the TX Parks Pass we purchased for $70 (it allows access to all 90 TX state parks)-otherwise it's $17 per night plus a $3 per person daily entry fee. Sites are generous dirt/sand/dead leaves areas with a picnic table and fire ring. The whole park is loaded with different types of tall trees and low vegetation. There were abundant types of birds flitting about. The night sky is very dark so the stars are brilliant. All the facilities were in good condition and the park staff was very friendly and helpful. There are miles of multi-use and hiking trails. We could hear the power plant and the trains but their noises were in the background. This campground is located about four miles from small town Tatum where there is a very nice grocery store and a couple of restaurants. The park does not have public Wi-Fi access. AT&T and Verizon service was full bars of 4G LTE. We received 15 over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. - DD Rolling Ranch

We stayed one night. The park has 10 pull-thrus (3 with cement pads) and 10 back-ins (4 with cement pads), all w/FHU. Internal roads were dirt. It had rained & there were deep ruts on the dirt and around our site. Pad was level but too short for our 40' motorhome & tow. Water pressure was high - need pressure regulator. No shade yet, trees are too young. US 59 is busy at all hours so there was regular traffic noise. There's no park office. One of the full-timers who lives in the park will greet you (if he's there) and collect your money. If he's not there, just park in a site and he'll collect the fee when he gets back. We paid cash but they also take credit cards. It's a bare bones campground - no off leash dog park, no playground, no cable or wifi. No picnic table or fire ring on the sites. A trash dumpster isn't readily obvious either. The price is great for an overnight. I'd stay here again. - Flippitti

Stayed here a week. New concrete pads with excellent utility hookups. There were 3 full timers friendly but kept to themselves. Excellent location with easy off and on access to US Hwy 59 between Shreveport and Houston. - M Masters

The park is new and the owner plans additional improvements over the next year. The park is located on US Highway 59 on the south side of Timpson. Hwy 59 is a busy highway but the night noise was not noticed nor was it an issue. Trees have been planted for future shade, and the owner is planning to add restrooms and a recreation room. We stayed 2 nights and were very pleased with our stay. - M Masters

Campsite is a sloped, gravel lot divided into forty serviced sites. There are no trees in the camping area. There is a small children's playground, a dog walk, and a pond adjacent. The washroom and laundry building is tidy and clean. - Gord0

This "park" is not like its website's glowing description. It is actually a sloping stone and gravel parking lot in front of a small, fenced in farm pond. There are a few permanent residents, the majority of whom appear to be transient workers. The individual spaces are roomy and none of them are level due to the generally sloping grade of the land and lack of any attempt at terracing to provide level individual spaces. We tried spaces 3 and 33 and both were off side-to-side by about 6 inches. The owner told us he had plenty of 2x4s to lend us. There is a busy highway nearby and road noise is obtrusive if you leave your windows open. The only grass is a small strip bordering the park and the area around the pond. You can fish for a $5 fee. The laundry/bath area has two individual toilet/shower rooms each for men and women. The wifi signal was non-existent in space 3 (furthest from the office) and very weak in 33 nearer the office.
This is a very basic park, barely okay for an overnight at the Passport America rate. - leorah

Quiet! For an overnight stop, this little family owned and run park is perfect. 2 Miles from the I-20, but million miles away from the roar of the traffic, and next to a pasture full of cows. All Gravel, easy in and out. I would stop here again, and if I needed to stay in the area I would stay here again. Wifi was good. - TravelPaul

Very nice basic campground. Would make a good base camp or overnight stop. No trees in the spots but surrounded by trees. Very nice nature trail with bird houses and other art along the trail. Great for walking a leashed dog. Owner was one of the nicest and most helpful RV park guys we've ever met. Helped hookup! Nothing fancy but strong Wi-Fi, clean, no cable TV, but there are dishes if you have service. Would definitely stop again. - User3017

We travel Nation wide 350 days a year. With that being said we know a good park; this place is fantastic! We stayed in a local park 1 night and the wife was uncomfortable, moved here and she was happy. Close to town, but not too close clean laundry, free Wi-Fi, rates are very reasonable, park is clean and quiet. They provide Direct TV hook up; we have Dish, but got great reception. Verizon works great here; would stay again anytime! Home is where we park! - cuz

Easy access, sites a bit unlevel for long motor homes but are workable. Roads are a bit rough. Utilities good with reliable electric and good water pressure. 30 sites total, 10 pull throughs. Corral available for horses. Very nice club house/meeting hall with kitchen and rear deck, bathrooms/showers, and laundry. We found it difficult to walk our small dogs due to many residents allowing their large dogs to run loose (not vicious but quite intimidating), but otherwise enjoyed our stay. - AFChap
