This is a smaller Texas State Park on a lake that is reported to have a variety of fish to include Black Bass, catfish, perch and so forth. The RV sites are spaced nicely to offer some sense of privacy with trees and bushes offering additional privacy. The heavy recent rains have made the hiking trails muddy, but the few we walked offered a nice hike. The Park has a Park Police Officer who patrols the area and seems to keep a lid on noise. The nearest towns are small and only offer a bit more than gas and sodas. The Park is often full during nice weather and always during First Monday Canton. We camped at Purtis Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This is a "No-Wake" small lake that limits the number of boats on the lake to about 50. We saw many canoes and paddle boats. The Park has at least three (3) fishing piers and many easy access places to fish from the shore. The Park has 4-5 separate hiking trails that loop various areas of the Park.

We had a rough start to our visit here. We were told that the office hours were from 8:00AM to 5:00PM. We arrived at 4:45 and were told that the lobby closed at 4:30 and they would not check us in, but we could go pick any site that was not occupied and to come back before 9:00 the next morning to check in. We drove in and picked site #20 which was empty and had no tag to indicate it was taken. It was tricky to get our 34 foot trailer into the site but we managed to do it and it had a nice view of the lake. We set up camp and enjoyed our first evening there. The next morning I went to pay and was told we would have to move to another site because a "local man" had already paid for that site for the whole week! What a disappointment since we had already set everything up! So we had to load up and move to site 47, which is nice but had no lake view. To make matters worse, the "local man" didn't show up to actually use his site until several days later!

In spite of all that, it is a nice park with sites that are well spaced, shady, and have vegetation to provide separation and privacy from adjacent sites. Some sites are level, while others require about 3 inches of leveling blocks. Our first site had good Verizon cell phone reception but poor TV reception, while the second site had good TV reception but poor cell phone reception. Water and electricity work well, although we did have a brief outage during a storm. They have several miles of hiking trails, but they were too muddy for us to make it very far during our stay. Pets and tents are allowed. We camped at Purtis Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent Texas State Park. We were in back-in site #13. It looked small from the road, but easily accommodated my 37' 5th wheel and still had room to park my truck. Very private and great shade. Water pressure and quality good. Good 30A electric. Central dump station is tight, no sewer at sites. Nice, easy hiking trails. We would stay here again. We camped at Purtis Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park has gigantic campsites with picnic table, fire pit, and level tent area. All sites have mature trees with ample shade. There were paddle boat and canoe rentals, walking trails that lead to the lake and fishing pier. We enjoyed seeing numerous deer, raccoons, armadillo, squirrels, and vultures. We did choose a campsite that seemed to have all the ants. There is a walk in beach area to swim but the water smelled odd. Over all it was a great experience and we would return. We camped at Purtis Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great Park to hang out in and enjoy nature. There were 2 eagles in the park for the winter. Great fishing and trophy bass. Most helpful park hosts. Unfortunately no water due to freeze, but not a detraction. We camped at Purtis Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Small state park. Quiet when we stayed there. Excellent shaded sites, though they can be a little tight. They have pictures of all of the sites, along with dimensions at the gate - makes it easier selecting a site. Lots of raccoons in the area, so be careful with food. We camped at Purtis Creek State Park in a Motorhome.
