Awesome park with plenty of room around the campsite. It is one of the nicer parks we've been to. Lot spacing is spacious with some shade. Site surface is gravel and features a fire ring and picnic table. We camped at Lake Colorado City State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice state park, with very roomy sites. I disagree with the earlier review claiming sites 13-19 are level, as I was at 13 and it was not particularly level. With that being said, most of the sites aren't too far off level anyway. The wifi was broken due to a recent storm, with no plans to fix it. Despite being there on a beautiful weekend in April, I had the park almost to myself. Had a great stay, although pricewise, Texas parks aren't exactly a bargain. We camped at Lake Colorado City State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sites 13-19 are level. Ask at registration - they have a cheat sheet showing which sites are level. Sites are wide open, mesquite trees don't provide much shade, but picnic tables are covered with a shelter. Free park WiFi works, but is very slow. Restrooms were not very clean. Very quiet here, a nice setting with the lake, trees and prickly pear cactus. A few short hiking trails go around the lakeshore. Lake was very low when we visited; only kayaking was allowed. Very windy during our stay - which is probably typical for the area. We camped at Lake Colorado City State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed for a week in a back-in site so our rate was good, you pay a premium for a pull-thru. The sites are spaced wide apart but not a lot of shrubs to help provide privacy. We got a site in Mesquite Circle and half the nights we were the only ones in sight. Not much shade to speak of either since the trees don't grow tall enough to provide any. We had a few gusty days, but the trees helped block the wind. Being here in the spring, the cacti have pretty yellow & pink flowers blooming, African daisies, and many other wildflowers are in bloom everywhere. The bath houses on the other hand are a different story. Dead bugs litter the floor everywhere, I can tell it hasn't been cleaned in weeks. There is no shower curtain or privacy door to speak of, just 2 open stalls. We work online so Verizon coverage is our key item to review, and I'm glad to report LTE data coverage gets 2-3 bars on our Mifi. We camped at Lake Colorado City State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The town of Colorado City is 7 miles from the park. There is a grocery store, gas stations, and a couple fast food places (Sonic, Dairy Queen). We couldn't get any TV channels OTA, so we used Redbox for entertainment. There are 3 Rexbox kiosks in town.

This was our second stay in this park. It's such a pretty setting. Almost no one else was there. We felt very safe. We paid $2 extra per night for a pull-through. Sites have water and electricity but no sewer. No wifi but our Verizon hotspot worked well. We camped at Lake Colorado City State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A great state park gem that has been abandoned by the local since the lake is drought stricken. If your idea of a relaxing time is no crowds, open spaces to let the kids roam while you read your book, this state park is for you. You can tell it had its heyday when the lake was accessible, but don't let that keep you away. We were glad to stumble upon it by accident and are already planning our return trip. We camped at Lake Colorado City State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stopped in here on our way to Ruidoso NM and it's pretty much like I remembered it, dry and desolate. I really wonder why the state keeps this park open, we arrived on Saturday afternoon and there were 2 other campers in the entire park. I guess the lake being so low is keeping people away. Anyway, the site we got did have a fairly large tree on it, the staff said it was the most popular site. The sites are spread way out, ours was a pull through (#49) and fairly level side to side. Electric and water were fine. We scoped out the bathrooms and showers: they were spotless as usual. Park is very quiet. Not bad for a stopover, but it's about 6 or 7 miles off of I-20. We'll probably stay here again. We camped at Lake Colorado City State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The rangers at this park are very friendly and helpful. We practically had the whole place to our self due to the fact that the lake is so low because of the drought in the area. The area is typical west Texas with mesquite trees and scrub brush. The sites with water and electric hook up are easy to get to, as is the dump station. This would be a great place to use for family reunions because it has such wide open spaces and the day areas are not fully utilized. It was very peacefully and a great place to get away from it all. I will definitely return. We camped at Lake Colorado City State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park managed well. Restrooms not up to very high standard. Was told and saw review comment that there was Wi-fi, but there was none. People in office were no help and just said maybe we just weren't in a good spot. Our "pull through" site was not very level and more of a driveway. Park completely empty but all five occupants were placed very near each other and could have been spaced much farther apart. We would not stay there again.

Rude, lazy, and unhelpful staff. Unlevel pull through sites. Even when park has 5% occupancy, the staff assigned the campsite right next to others. Grounds are covered in cactus and prickly plants so pets can only walk on asphalt road. Dangerous low weight limit bridge from I-20 south to park on west side of the lake. I recommend accessing park from east side of the lake even though staff gave west side directions, if you must stay here. Wi-Fi never worked. No ice available to purchase from ice machine at the office. We camped at Lake Colorado City State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a bare-bones park that served us well for a single night passing through. The rate reflects $22 for the site (including electricity) plus $8 for 2 adult entry fees. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We camped at Lake Colorado City State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a well maintained state park, our rate reflects a Texas State Park Pass ($70 this year) which is a bargain. The facilities we very well maintained, we had a lake front view. The power plant on the lake has closed and the formerly warm lake waters that used to provide abundant fishing has now dropped so low that the boat ramp is 30 feet from the water. It's a shame because it's a very nice park with very few visitors. We camped at Lake Colorado City State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This state park was well kept and well staffed. The park staff was very friendly and patrolled the park regularly, even at night. The sites were mostly level but the driveways were a bit overgrown. Power and water at each site was working well. The bathrooms were very clean, and while they were a bit dated, they were well maintained and had plenty of hot water. There were no shaded sites, but just about every site had a couple of small trees with good shade for the afternoon. The lake was low, but the swim beach and one fishing dock were still very usable. The playground was extremely dated (think 1970s vintage), but the kids don't care. The hiking trail along the lake was decent and fun for the kids. Overall I think this was a good state park to visit, but not necessarily a repeat for us. We camped at Lake Colorado City State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Our 11th RV site on this trip. My overall rating of 6/10 is the lowest rating on this trip. Very remote with not much to do. Wonderful weather sunny mid 60's to mid 40's. We found a great "hole in the wall" Mexican Restaurant (Mi Ranchito), Great Food. Restrooms were reasonably clean but had no hand soap, only water and a blow hand drier. The sites are level and maintained, however they are covered with Sand Spurs". We spent a lot of our time pulling the spurs out of our dog's paws. The parks is will patrolled.

The price we paid reflects the Texas St. Park pass coupon. Texas State Parks charge a per/person daily entrance fee in addition to the camping fee ($15/night at this park). We purchased the TSPP for $60 which covers the per/person entrance fee and gives you 4 coupons each good for 50% off the 2nd night's camping fee. We camped in the Rolling Hills Loop which had limited lake views, and water/electric hookups. The Lakeview Loop has lake frontage but water-only hookups. We had the whole park to ourselves with the exception of one other camper on the first night. It was very quiet, just crickets and coyotes. Rangers made regular rounds and were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lake Colorado City State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
