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.

Nice state park. Sites are large enough for slides and awnings. Park is clean and well
kept and staff is friendly and always ready to help. Definitely a good place for relaxing. We camped at Purtis Creek State Park in a Tent Trailer.
