We were the first guest to camp at the New Adventure RV Park and we were not disappointed. The park is located in the Piney Woods of East Texas, near Livingston. It's a small park, which was part of the attraction to my husband and me. The park hosts are wonderful people, offering complimentary coffee, citrus-infused water, and homemade muffins the days we were there. The laundry and bathroom facilities were immaculate and the park was well kept. We have two dogs and the park offers two separate dog parks, for both small and large. Since we were there in August, our dogs loved the kiddie pools to cool off in during our stay. We particularly loved our morning walks around the trail system the owners put in around the park. Tree-lined paths gave way to wonderful varieties of wildlife including birds, lizards, squirrels, rabbits, and an array of butterflies of which I've never seen. There were 100's of them flying around the property throughout our stay. In the early evening, before the sun set, we played horseshoes and other games in a recreational area of the park and then at night, the park is exceptionally quiet and we spent many a night star gazing. In many instances, we could make out the Milky Way in the dark sky. If you like to take pictures, you'll love it here. If you're in the east Texas area, I would highly recommend this park.Wonderful stay and I highly recommend it! - Eccentric Nomads

Nice out of the way wooded campground. Very friendly staff and clean restrooms and showers. Close by bike trails at Double Lake Rev Area. - PF Churchill

Really enjoyed our second stay there. If you like a wooded, quiet camping area then this is the place for you. The staff is very nice and friendly. The WiFi is pretty good. Bathrooms are clean. They have trails and have set up a scavenger hunt that you can do along the way. We've been twice and will be visiting them again. There are a few people that are extended stay but had not problems with site cleanliness or noise. - Funk Campers

Great park. Sites are not crammed together. Pleasant, helpful people in charge. Tall pine trees provide shade. Owners held a get-together on the Saturday before Easter with fried chicken. Everyone brought a dish and ate together. Was nice. We will return to this park again. - SunflowerTX

Nice park on Lake Livingston. Nice that the park is closed for day use during the weekends, cuts down on traffic. My one complaint is the use of boom boxes and car radios that can be heard all off the park. Not a quiet place on Saturday afternoon. - Texan58

We stayed on site 73. Very spacious but lots of long leaf pine needles on pad and in the grassy areas but especially under the picnic table. Evidently the leaf blowers had not been around in a while. Another pet peeve of tidy campers was the fire pit full of trash including plastic bottles. Park maintenance folks hadn't been around to clean up site and we didn't arrive until almost 4pm!
Other than those issues it is a lovely park with lots of amenities and the staff in the entry station and the store were very helpful and pleasant. Our site had a lake view. Unfortunately it was so hot and humid we didn't spend much time out of doors!
This is a great park and lake if you are fishing for cat fish. Unfortunately for us we were fishing for bass and this is not the place for them. Plus the lake is shallow so a light wind can make it very rough. Due to these issues we decided to cut our stay short. We had reserved for two separate stays and cancelled the second one. A word to the wise, be very sure of your stay, once it is booked you CANNOT get a refund. Even though we cancelled the second stay a week in advance the Trinity River Authority (who runs the lake and this campground) does not grant any refunds, EVER. I guess they think that their authority gives them a license to steal! We lost $40.00 to them! - Rick & Karen

Wolf Creek is well maintained. They are always coming by to pick up trash.
The RV sites, sites 34-50, are on a bulkhead very near the edge of the water. Not a good location for small children. The area down by the playground, sites 1-30 are good for any age kid.
A group of campers were making noise late at night and someone came by and stopped the noise. We especially like that the curfew is enforced
Wish they would enforce the same rules during the day. People open car doors and play boom boxes. Not all of us enjoy their music. - Texan58

We had a great time... for August camping in Texas. We almost had the entire place to ourselves. Only 3 other sites were occupied. On RV door side (passenger) the next spot was 50 yards away through thick brush. On the other side (driver) the next spot was only 15 yards away and clearly visible should you look back there (we did not). From the camper's bumper, the lake was just 20 yards away. A great spot that we will try to get again next time.The kids enjoyed the swimming area which was clean and well maintained. - Warkog

This a nice small park. There are several pull-throughs which have full hookups and can handle big rigs. There are not any sites which you could really call lake view due to the heavy forest. The swimming area is really nice. Verizon service is a little spotty but usable. Like Cagle Rec Area, your America the Beautiful discount is screwy, not really half price like most USFS and COE parks. We will probably come here again. - TEXASBOY

Update review 11/2016 - This is one of our favorite places to camp in our RV. This is a very small camping area in the Sam Houston National Forest near Coldspring Texas. There are sites you can reserve and sites that are first-come-first serve.
There are 2 park hosts that live in the park and they are very accommodating if you need anything, but don't expect to see a constant presence by park staff.
The park is a beautiful forest like facility with very wooded and shady sites, a small lake with plenty of water in it (after a couple drought seasons) and abundant hiking and biking trails.
We only camp on the full service RV sites. (Not all sites are full service.) Some sites are reasonably level and some require substantial leveling efforts. Just make sure you have plenty of Lynx levelers or equivalent. The pedestals are conveniently located with 30/50 amp service, water and dump. The sites driveway is blacktop and most sites have a concrete pad with a large picnic table and a nearby fire pit.
Cell service and TV reception are weak, so don't plan to watch a lot of TV unless you have a satellite system. - Tcamper

This is a small little park. It is run down and in desperate need of repair. The ceiling in the lodge is falling down, not just in one place but the whole building. The pool bathhouse is old and has mold on the walls. The floors are rotted, the toilets are about to fall through the floor. The pool is above ground and is not in good condition. They only have 2 50 amp sites for the whole park, no shade available. The electric is spotty and has low voltage on every site. The owners are now charging per nite for electric, even if you only stay 1 night. - Anita Kirby

I agree with previous reviewers. A neat little park in a beautiful rural setting. Wonderful management couple. We just stayed one night, but I wish that we had the time to stay longer and just relax. - Artic Fox Guy

This is now Hillcrest RV Park ("A Timber Lodge Resort") We loved this campground. It's quiet, clean and well maintained. Nice long pull throughs. The managers are very friendly and helpful . They take alot of pride in the park, and it shows. As previous reviewers have said, this park isn't close to stores or other services. The nearest big stores would be in Willis or Conroe, about 18 mi. away. We'd definitely stay here again. The price reflects the PA discount with a $3.00 surcharge for 50 amp. - wntrtxn

Excellent state park for a visit up to a couple weeks. One thing to consider, about 1/2 the sites require you to back in on your blind side and it is tight. We had a bumper pull of 38 feet on a crew cab. If you take your time, you can make it. Staff allows you to look and select a site before you make your final decision. Good walking trails for you and your animals. Great place. - REO

Super nice park. Just redone all new roads pads etc. Great site with lots of space between lots. - Dave Krobath

We love that you can reserve a specific site in the Piney Shores and Red Oak areas. The photos on the web site let you see each site, so you know ahead of time what you are getting and that your rig will fit. We wish all state parks had this. These two areas of the park have had renovations done since our last visit in November 2015. The roads are completely repaved, the parking sites redone with concrete, (no more precarious dropoffs at the edge.), new tables, and new fire rings/grills. Piney Shores is right on the bank of the beautiful Lake Livingston, where we enjoyed great sunsets and watching birds such as seagulls, pelicans, and even a pair of Bald Eagles! Most sites are spacious, level, and shaded. Depending on your rig, some sites may require up to 40 feet of electric cord and/or water and sewer hose. Navigating the roads and entering the sites is easy. Electric service was good, but water pressure was 40 PSI most of the week, and dropped to only 20 PSI on a busy Saturday. For those rainy days, we were able to get a strong 4G Verizon signal, and could get all TV networks except ABC. - BrentB

Stayed here as a Coast-to-Coast guest. This is a development for selling lots on or near the lake. Fairly new, so there isn't much in the way of landscaping. Positives; It's quiet and the staff is friendly, sites are easy to get into and they are level. Negatives: RV park not on or even looking at the lake, also gets a lot of in house traffic at all hours of the night. There is a pool near the clubhouse, but it's far from the RV park.First site I got into the 50 amp plug was missing, the next one had the water spigot missing. This place doesn't really qualify as a resort, if you want to do something besides get out in the country away from the noise. If you bring your boat to put on the lake, it might be a good fish camp. - tbax46

This was our second stay at the campground. Sites/roads are paved. We stayed in Site 53, which is a pull thru, level, with a patio and picnic table. The site did face the setting sun, which made sitting outside uncomfortable in the summer heat. Restroom/Showers are unisex, they were clean in the morning, but became less so during the day. Pool was adequate and there is a lake swimming area. Kids enjoyed bank fishing and actually caught a few fish. There is an onsite restaurant that gets good reviews. We would stay here again. We camped in a Motorhome. - TxDiver

This is a very well maintained, family oriented campground. Staff at check in were helpful and friendly. Interior roads are concrete and big rig access was average. The campground is terraced and nicely landscaped, we had a lovely pull in site with a pretty view over Lake Livingston in the Surfside section with plenty of space for our towed, a lovely shade tree and a fire ring, but not much privacy. Our concrete pad was wide and level and had a patio with a picnic table. However, we were allocated site 74 which has a buddy site 74a at right angles to it which is only about 40' long. On day 3 inexplicably a 35' fifth wheel and truck were allocated this site which made it impossible to get our coach out and made it difficult to maneuver our small towed in and out, we had to ask the truck owner to move when we left the following morning. The park was half empty at the time so there was no need to use this site, this rig was obviously way too big for the site. I pointed out to the office staff that site 74a was not capable of accommodating a rig much over 40' in overall length without restricting access to site 74, which points to inexperienced staff not understanding the site layout. Hopefully they will take note and adjust their booking systems accordingly. Until then beware if you are allocated site 74.
We were here over the weekend, so it was pretty noisy with lots of kids, radios blaring and boats on the water. If we stayed here again it would only be during the week when hopefully much quieter, and only for a couple of days at most. The bathrooms were modern but the one I used was dirty and had no toilet paper! The one laundry although clean, did not have enough washers and dryers for a campground of this size. There was no security gate and we saw a lot of folk just driving through to check out the campground. Pet friendly with a Kamp K9, pet walk and doggie bags with a disposal station. Wifi and AT&T were good. - tobyjug

Once again (see my 10/16 review for a more detailed review), we had an enjoyable stay at this park. Although on the expensive side, there are FHU sites with cable and WiFi. The pool and the lakeside setting offer plenty of recreational opportunities. - Jerry S

Not one person has every been rude to me at this park. Lots of trees, you can't get satellite, but you can pick up local and cables. I didn't use laundry or bathrooms so can't comment those. Nice quiet park. No dust people drive slow here. - JustDon

We enjoyed this RV park. There is a pond on site for fishing and a license is not needed. The park is beautiful with tall trees at every site. It is quiet and away from the traffic noise. The sites are wooded with tall trees in each site. All sites are pull throughs. There are no restrooms or showers. There is laundry service available and the laundry room is spacious and clean. There is a restaurant located directly next door. - Perfection expected

Great cable/wi-fi, water pressure. Pine trees surround all sites. Long pull throughs. Quiet park, majority seemed to be permanent residents. Be careful where you park after a good rain, sites are covered by pine needles and mud underneath can be very deep. Our truck sank almost up to the axle when we started to pull in. - Gypsy4ever
