A beautiful peaceful setting. I don't think we would pay for the "lake" view again since only those campers directly next to it can really see it. We were across the street and the campers blocked our view. We would stay anywhere else in the park though as the sites were level, had full hookups and were so quiet and peaceful. The showers were large but no air conditioning to speak of. A bit warm in the summer. Just a lovely place though and we will definitely come back. - tb919

Another beautiful CCC park built in the 30's. Campsites had a mix of paved and unpaved drives. Medium size rigs might have issues with some of the sites in the Mountain View and Dogwood Campgrounds and large rigs should stick to the Big Pine Campground. Bathrooms must have recently been rebuilt as they look brand new and were immaculate.
Nice swim area that we took advantage of. One complaint, the 30 amp socket was installed upside down in our campsite. - Ocotillo

We were in Big Pine loop full hookup site #10. Great site. Need a step because of pad drop off. Big Pine is great for large RV's the other loops are too small for 35'+ RV's. Great hiking and swimming. Spring fed lake with no powered boats. One of our favorite parks in Texas. - drfife

Gravel roads, grassy sites. Playground equipment for kids, covered pavilion, Clean laundry. Huge sites approximately 40'x75'. Plenty of elbow room and grass for our dog. Owners have their home on site. We will stay here again. - Herb Stark

We enjoyed this unique park that slopes gently down from the road to the lake front. Please consult the park's website for pictures of the RV spaces that will help you better understand my description of the park. We stayed in the best back-in site on the property. Our entire door side was separated from the water's edge by only a lush section of lawn for sitting and enjoying the sunset. Another, separate grass lakefront common area is available for the other RV spaces that don't sit right on the water. The check-in building also has a covered porch and nice chairs for relaxing and enjoying the lake views. The owners have added a few pull-through sites directly across the quiet street from the lakefront site area where we stayed. You won't feel the water in these sites, but will have only a short distance to walk to set yourself up on the lakefront to read or relax. We are traveling with our two kids, ages 11 and 14. The park is family friendly. We used a great teatherball court numerous times and we also jumped in the lake for a swim every time we got hot. The water was a comfortable temperature in late September, at least for us. If you have a boat in tow, the project has a nice dock system and a boat launch ramp. The owners are good people and are present and active on a day to day basis. They have owned the property for 16 years and were happy to show us around and share with us the history of the property and the area. We recommend the park for those that enjoy a smaller, mom and pop owned park in a very nice setting. - my12by60

Just like the first review said! We were in #8. Thirty feet from the water under the shade of a few tall stately pines. Also has six room motel so non RVer friends can stay. Nice pier system and boat ramps so you can fish from the pier or go boating. Made for a very pleasant stay. We'll be going back! - Texrv

I'd stay here again if I needed to. I didn't even ask for the discount Pass Port America. They had WI-FI, but didn't us it. My satellite did get reception. I could see if you where in first 4 site you might not. I felt like sites where fairly level - better than most of Texas State Parks. I would tell a friend about the place. For a couple nights stay it would be okay. - JustDon

This place is about 2 steps up from a Walmart parking lot but at $12.50 Passport America rate I guess you get what ya pay for. That may be degrading a Walmart parking lot but it does have water 50amp electric and sewer. Sites are really tight and water hookups are a little inconvenient. Not too level and I backed out of the pull through site I was in as the exit was through a small ditch. Lots of permanent folks. They say there is Wi-Fi but I couldn't get it to work. I might for someone else. Good AT&T cell phone reception and a couple of TV stations off the antenna. Dish would be a real pain to put out due to trees blocking signal. - nedmtnman

Arrival: You have to travel 18 miles south to get there but it just may be worth it
Roads: Excellent all the way coming and going. Except... we called the site owner in advance and she told us not to follow the GPS. So true. Drive in to Pittsburg and then approach from the south. I drove the GPS road in my TOAD and thought I was going to die!
Sites: Excellent. Plenty of space and well maintained. Full hookups. DISH by every site... but you have to pay huge to get it running.
Cost: $32.50. Website says there are discounts -- none. Park owner's excuse is that she can't update the site.
Local Area: Rural. You have to drive back to Mt Pleasant to get anything you really need.
Internet: Advertized free internet -- false. Limited cell phone reception. Clear views of all skies and/or plug into DISH.
Other: One dumpster at the end of the park. Inconvenient. Many excuses for not delivering on advertised amenities. We will not stay there again. - JC Penny

Nice quiet park about 2 miles from Lake Bob Sandlin. I was on the only cement pad in the park on Site 17. Electricity, water and sewer connections are at the back of the site. Be careful pulling into sites because of this. Roads are gravel in the park and a little narrow. Sites are kind of close together but not on top of each other. Verizon service is 3 bars sometimes, but mostly 2 bars or less. Wi-Fi was not working during my stay, they said it was "hung up". Owners are very friendly. They are improving amenities in the park continuously. There are picnic tables in a pavilion in the park and they have just completed a nice large pet park. Area is still a little muddy when it rains, but they are working on landscaping in the park. Entrance drive to the park is a little obscured by some trees and it narrow. I would stay here again. - Paul_L63

We were transferred to Pittsburg with my husband's job. The owner was very friendly. The spaces were tight, but very long pull thrus, allowing ample parking for both our vehicles. There were small shade trees. The park was located in a very beautiful, hilly area, making the drive a very pleasant one. The Laundry room was very nice and the shower house was clean and nice as well. The park was fairly new and immaculate. We were there only 5 months and would definitely stay there again. - Sharon Henderson

Average overnight park. Level sites on pull throughs with good hookups, good cable TV and Wi-Fi. The only downside is the highway noise though it isn't bad at night. I would stay here again. Price is PA at 30 amp. - nedmtnman

Very basic RV park; OK for overnight. Many long term residents with diesel trucks starting up early in the morning. Off the interstate which helped with road noise; however, this park is somewhat difficult to locate at night as entrance is not well marked. Roads need to be regraded and sites re-graveled. Next time we will go on elsewhere. - andrews4

We really enjoyed our initial stay. A quiet campground with friendly owners and staff. Cable TV has about 70 channels at no extra charge. Nice large enclosed dog run. We will return again. - RedSoloCup

This is a "east" Texas RV Patk and apparently won some awards for best in the area.
It is right on the water and across the street from a restraint/bar/gas station. Park itself seemed looked after. Service not great. 20 min on hold, then forgot about us(we could hear them talking). Phone off hook for 2 hrs. Greeted with "go find yer spot" after pulling in. Not rude, but no service.
Good number of full time rvs at the waterfront. It's a full party spot on a summer Friday. Lots of smoking.
10 year limit on rvs... Maybe....
If you want quiet and no-party, this isn't it. It is beer, bait, and ammo... Which is fine.
Lakefront yes. Boat access yes. Karoke yes. - cb1000rider

Rate was $12.50 for Passport America. Just an overnight stay, and had a long fairly level pull-through, so did not have to unhook toad. This looks like a fairly new park, with still some work to be done. That being said, not a bad place. Have some fulltimers, but all the RVs are in good shape, and sites are clean. A little off the beaten path, but would stay here again. They also have a small restaurant/bar across road at marina. - JJ & CC

We stayed for 37 days in this park, and for the most part, it is a very nice place to spend some time. With that said, April and May are months that include the Spring transitional weather patterns, which create some problems. Site #9 turns into a mud hole after rains, and rain it does. The lake rose four of five inches during our stay. However, most sites have grass (ours did not) on either side of the pad. Also, if you plan on staying here for any length of time, ask for a site that is not located under the tall pines. Again, this is particularly true in the spring when the sap starts to run and the winds howl during thunder bumpers. I'm going to have to do some major clean up on our roof and sides of our coach from dripping pine sap, plus we had a two foot limb fall on the roof. Just hoping I don't ruin the clear coat. The lake is heavily fished, but fishing is fair to good. We were here for the bass fishing, using an inflatable boat. We had one week of good weather with light winds that allowed us to get on the water, and during that time we caught a good many bass, keeping only those that were 14 to 15 inches long and weighing in around 1.5 to 2 pounds. We caught lots of fish that were under 14 inches and several in the 3 to 5 pound range. The area offers everything you need, sans RV repair for motorhomes (there is for trailers and 5'vers) WalMart is 13 miles away, but a very easy drive. Not much in eateries, but if TexMex is your thing there are plenty of those. I don't recommend any in Pittsburg, but Mt.Pleasant has some good ones. If you go to Gilmer, do NOT eat at the Chinese Buffet. All in all, this is a nice campground, the staff is friendly, and they keep the sites clean and in good to fair shape. Don't expect much from their free WiFi, as it doesn't work most of the time, and when it does it is slower than a sleeping snail. - Darfantin

Second stay in 3 years. We stayed in the group site this time and last time too. Wonderful quiet location. Group sites are not for big rigs over say, 32'. Excellent lake views. Only issues we have is that the group shower house showers have a < 3 minute hot water supply so they are basically useless unless you are just rinsing off, making a 150 yard+ walk to the next shower house, (which is basically like new). Other issue is an open gate overnight so anyone can come and go at will - bobojay

We stayed in the new area, non reserve, and loved it. The pads were very large with room for the picnic table and large enough for our motorcycles and trailer. The only drawback to the lake sites, is the pads are built up, so the incline is not a gentle slope getting down to the campfire ring and water. The restrooms had a lot of bugs in them in the morning from the street lights, but otherwise were clean. The Camp hosts were very friendly and helpful. There are very clean and well kept grounds. - chicosmom

Beautiful park: has great swimming (not too cold or too warm), and a beautiful view with several deer roaming around. Only a few pull-through sites. Has friendly staff. Army Corps owned and run (open to civilians, of course). Only negative was the lack of cell service through most of the park and no WiFi. Otherwise we loved it. - TheDubs

This park has a lot of potential but it looks a bit run down. The roads are rough and there's a nice pond at the back that needs to be cleaned up around it. It looks like there are a few long term residents here. There's a large dog run and it was okay. Wifi worked well. The lady in the office was friendly and escorted us to our site. It's off the Interstate far enough that noise was not a factor. - 69636

Small, older park with easy access to the highway. Texas has been through severe drought for last 5 years and so this park is not as pretty as it probably once was. Very tall trees. Limited landscaping. Quite a few "seasonals" that look abandoned but keep in mind we are here late in the year. Pool looks okay; did not visit laundry or bathrooms. Most rigs pull in for a night or two and move on elsewhere. Front office staff were very nice as were the RVers. - JanneC

Nice KOA, we stayed for one night on our way back to central Texas. We did laundry, showered, etc. We arrived late afternoon so we stayed put in the RV. Cable tv worked fine with a good number a channels and a good amount of shade around us. Unfortunately the pool was out of commission, but they told us this when we called ahead. Good one night stop. Our site was very long and level. We kept the toad connected annd still had space to park at least one more care if needed. - mikel

We stayed for 6 days, coming in on a Saturday and leaving on Friday. We were in E405 a reserved site, back in. Water, electric with a dump station on the way out. Max 14 night stay, this is a Lake O' the Pines campground. Very friendly staff at the gate, fairly busy during weekends but peaceful and quiet during the week. Apparently lots of improvements made after the recent floods. There are first come RV and tent sites in 1, 2 and 3 and a day use area with picnic tables and swimming areas.
Good lake to get on the water and enjoy. Swimming and fishing. Most folks well behaved. What we missed was a fish cleaning station. Wonderful little break. Would return. Also try Brushy Creek campground sometime. - TheWetzels

My experience here was a good one. The campground is on a beautiful lake and the grounds and facilities are kept very clean. Additionally, the attendants were pleasant and helpful. The sites can be a bit closer and exposed than I usually prefer, but it is the off season and there were very few campers. - jdtex

Very nice typical COE park with level paved sites. Many sites are on the water of Lake O the Pines. No sewers but dump station on exit road. The extremely surly unaccommodating park camp host is the only reason for not rating this park higher. He should find another occupation where he is not dealing with the public. The posted park hours are closed 10pm to 6am BUT the exit is not open until 9am! - consort
