6 Parks near Crockett, Texas
Jul 2016 - $25.00
Nice quiet place to spend a couple nights. Off the beaten path. Showers and laundry on site. Took a walk through the beautiful city park. Host was very nice and helped me get hooked up to electrical. Pads are grass and spacious, full hookups at site. Several fulltime residents. Roads are a little bumpy and there is no shade. - Sunneee

The only thing true about "Crockett Family Resort" is "Crockett". Don't let their online pictures fool you. I stayed at this place for over a year on work. I have stayed in over 30 RV parks all over the country, and would not recommend this place to anyone with a family, or a couple looking for a weekend getaway. I've stayed in some rough places, and this one is up there. It wasn't bad until a couple of pipelines came to town. I've witnessed suspicious activity at 4:00 AM (probably drug use/deals), trashy, beer canned camp sites and domestic violence where the cops came out to people peeling out in sports cars at 5 AM, and theft was also an issue, as my Yeti Cooler was stolen outside my 5th wheel while my family went in town for dinner. If you've seen it on "Cops", it has probably happened here, while you're here. This park is basically a man camp for oil/gas workers, containing some shady people, with no one looking after the place after dark. With all the "oil trash" in the park, they should have a Marshall or someone policing the park, enforcing park rules, but they don't. It would be the right thing to do for everyone in the park to help keep everyone safe. I am in the oil/gas business myself, and am ashamed of how some of these people act. If you ever need anything from the manager you will either get an extremely rude or very nice personality. She is overly passive/aggressive and lets you know that she is "in charge" in a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde demeanor if there is ever an issue or conflict. They run the place in a clutter of chaos, and it shows. When you arrive to the "Crockett Family Resort", you will find a very sandy place to park your RV, with random spacing issues. My neighbor couldn't even put his awning out all the way without touching my RV, and this is throughout the park in places. Awesome, huh? - zo1216

First the positive - serene setting. Basically felt like you were in the middle of the woods....pine and oak trees everywhere. The also rent cabins. Very quite. The not so positive- dogs roaming free everywhere Entire park is basically dirt littered with dead leaves on the ground. We didn't even try and use the leveling system. Spots are extremely short and you have to maneuver around trees to get in and out. I don't think we would stay here again in a big motorhome. More suited for small trailers. - EggerMar

Would not return. Pool was usable, but dirty. Leaves and things floating on the surface. Dog area was a small designated area, but full of cockleburs. There is a small store that sells minnows and bait, piers, and a covered boat storage area. Water was low from the drought and it was a 3' drop from pier to top edge of a boat, hard to get in and out. No access from the store to the pier area behind it - have to exit the store and walk around to a parking lot, through the grass, and then behind that same building to get on the pier. I would not return to this park. - SunflowerTX

Basically the same comments as the last reviewer in 2009. Doesn't look like anything has changed. Sure don't know where they got the pictures they use on their website, because we saw nothing like that when we pulled in. There must be something better in the area. - Grumpier99

We would not stop here again. No TV or Wi-Fi as promised. Campground is merely a gravel lot with water and electric. One toilet, one shower, one sink all in the same room with no partitians. No one present to assist or answer questions. You must phone in to register. - W Davidson

As previously stated, the website's photos are very misleading. The concrete strips make for an effort to get your tires onto both strips. The park is a barren, gravel parking lot. There is no onsite staff, and the bathroom/shower looks iffy. I can't address the wi-fi because I couldn't connect, and I was 20 yds away from the tower. I told the manager this when she showed up, and she said that I should have pressed the red reset button on the side of the office building. I don't push unlabeled red buttons. I have rerouted my return trip home to avoid Crockett, as I will not stay here again. - wbcci1529

For only $20 a night for full hookups, Salmon Lake Park is a great RV park where Texas hospitality is demonstrated. The park host and staff are friendly and "looking to please". The owner came out and spent an evening with us sharing some wonderful stories from his life. He is a very interesting fellow who has had more than a few adventures.
The park has all the amenities: small store for snacks, drinks, bottled water, and bagged ice. There is fishing, swimming, a playground, an old west town, and even a few tree-houses! Check out their website Salmon Lake Park for all the fun details and pictures.
Salmon Lake Park does not accept credit cards. The campsites are level and most are well-shaded by oak, pine, and live oak trees. The RV sites are grass and/or sand. The park is basically a wide open pasture with a smattering of trees and hook-ups for the RVs. If it rains you can expect mud.
Be prepared for ants (big ants, red ants, carpenter, ants, fire ants, little ants, black ants, etc.) We recommend using Amdro Ant Block or some similar product.
Each Memorial Day week-end Salmon Lake Park has a Gospel Music Festival and every Labor Day week-end they have a big East-Texas Blue Grass Festival. - rvbozo

Nice rec hall, no cable TV, new WiFi system in part of the park worked OK. A large park, some shade and two small ponds. Many old buildings set up to look like an old west or early 190's village. Many sites, you can find one to suit you. - txprospector

Enjoyed the stay. Very friendly folks. I liked the old buildings, truck, cars and stuff. Brought back some old memories. Enjoyed photographing around the location. Most of the sites I saw seemed to level. Easy to get in and get hooked up. I would go back and recommend for a place to visit and relax. Peaceful. Only reason I didn't go with a 10: no place is perfect. - Capt_dennis

Even tho the park road makes a loop around the lake, use the West entrance. It's tight, but possible to get a 45' MH to your site. Sites are deep in length and wide, but you have to pick the most level area. We didn't use any utilities, no 50A, so it was dry camping. Nice park atmosphere and quiet. - duster340

Campground wasn't in top notch shape for campgrounds, but yet, better than I expected since the reopening of it since the drought and tornado. I was impressed with the restrooms/showers on account of I didn't expect them to be that good. The folks working there are friendly and respectful. I do plan on another camping trip. Don't know when yet, but the campout will be there. - jimLE

Camper parking pads were mostly dirt and uneven. Definitely not a manicured campground if that is your preference. We stopped for one night. It served our purpose. Would not be a destination campground except for local camping or maybe fishing in the lake. - jwindham

Offered a host site near the entrance since park was full. It was quiet, full hookup and had a view of the woods from our rear window. Ranger Josh volunteered a lot of great history about the park. - sp123

This is quiet little State Park on the edge of the Davy Crockett National Forest. They have five RV campsites with full hookups for only $15 a night. Other campsites are available with water and electricity for $13 a night. The park has a dump station. The RV sites are not level but they are asphalt. Campsites include a picnic table, fire ring with grill-top, a lantern post, and also a waist high cooking grill. The towering pines and oaks are magnificent and there are plenty of birds and other wildlife.The Park Ranger and staff are very friendly and helpful. This park offers free firewood! The park office sells bagged ice for $2 a bag.
We enjoyed the peaceful serenity of camping among the East Texas pines. It was so quiet. We even had an armadillo come into camp after dark for a short visit. - rvbozo

This was our first camping in a new RV, a small 22-foot. Called ahead and had a pull-through site (#9) for us when we arrived, and found it without any issues. (It probably wouldn't have fit anything bigger than a 30 footer, though.) The site was very nice, tree shaded, except it wasn't level. We hiked on a couple of the trails which were nice. All the shade made for a surprisingly cool late afternoon/evening/morning. We very much enjoyed our experience there and look forward to returning. - RobtL
