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

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 great park for fall and winter camping. The small lake has struggled the past few years due to drought conditions in this area so there is not much to do as far as the lake is concerned. However, there is plenty to do if you like hiking or biking the trails, shopping in the nearby town of Coldspring (they have their monthly town square trade days the last Saturday of the month), visiting the historic jail house, or eating at the old style dinner in town. We always reserve one of the full hook-up sites that are paved, reasonably level with a good hook-up pedestal, and that is appropriately positioned. The satellite TV reception is OK, but not great; and the antenna TV reception is poor. This is because of the remote location and abundant tree coverage. The rest rooms are typical Forest service facilities. Not outstanding but adequate. Since we have full hook-ups, this is not an issue to us. The park is shady and very beautiful on a cool crisp fall morning. We have been coming to this park for years and will continue. - Tcamper

Just stayed here at spot 60. Highly recommend this place. Really enjoyed the it, no troubles at all, bath rooms are dated but kept pretty clean. I really didn't see any trash anywhere in the park. Great hiking trails and saw a bunch of kids on bikes so I think they have biking trail as as well but cant swear to it. RV sites are very spacious, ours wasn't real level but for the layout, I will take it any day, hiking trails are nice. AT&T service spotty but you can get a signal most places, Satellite signal a bit tough to get cause all of the trees but would much rather have the trees around us like we did. No dump station but park manager said just pull through one of the open drive through spots with full hook ups and dump there. Only negative thing I can say about this place is I think the park host needs to to tidy up their site, stuff laying around their RV really takes away from the place and be put away and in order like the rest of the park. With that being said, they were super friendly people. I don't think anyone will be disappointed staying here. - drakethib

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

Price reflects Coast to Coast. We enjoyed our stay here, the people are very friendly. Open grass sites were level and interior roads were gravel. There is a rec room with rest rooms and a separate building with showers. We would most definitely stay here again. Make no mistake, this is a no frills campground, but the setting is what we liked the most. - JBu

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

Loved this beautiful park. Its very wooded and we had a great lakeside spot. However, there were millions of caterpillars...literally falling out of the sky (spinning silks from the high trees and dangling down and dropping). The mosquitos were bad also. The interesting thing is...we ended up moving 30 minutes up the lake to another park and there are no bugs here. Our neighbors did say the bugs are not always this bad. The lakeside sites are beautiful though and I loved that we could fish from our site and the trees were perfect for hanging a hammock. Note that this park was closing April 1st, for the remainder of the year. Apparently they are renovating. There is a daily $5 charge for every person over 17, unless you buy the annual state park pass for $70 which allows all adults in your vehicle to avoid the $5 per day fee. There is also an extra $4 fee for an extra car, per day. Our site was a tight fit due to the trees being so close to the pad, but we were able to fit in our 37 foot 5th wheel. We were in the Piney Shores loop. - barrygoodtimes

Stayed in Yaupon Loop. The site pads are asphalt but most are in very poor repair.....uneven, sunken spots, broken off, etc. The loop road is in the same condition. Park is in need of serious maintenance. Camping area in this loop is in a low lying area and is currently very sloppy and flooded. The drainage ditches are not effective. It is seasonal holiday time so the park is very crowded. Most of the campers have dogs and almost none of them have any inclination to pick up after their animals. That makes for a filthy, unsanitary condition in the campground. - RatTailGray

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 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

Very spacious Rv park on the shoreline of Lake Livingston with fabulous sunsets and very well maintained Rv resort park. Waterfront and concrete sites, grass, strong wifi and power, playground, beach and wonderful on site restaurant. We have stayed here before. Easy drive from Houston. KOA park with on site store. Level concrete sites. - Oooooooo

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
