Bare bones park but one that offers a safe place to spend the night and full hookups. Owner was very pleasant and there is a repair shop right next door. - JWT

We stayed at this park for two nights. As others have stated, you need "the code" to enter the park since it's gated. Someone may come around to collect money after you arrive, or they may ask that you drop it in the "honor" box. All of the sites appeared to be back-ins, with gravel. Our site was relatively level. There are some trees in the park that offer a bit of shade, but not all sites have trees near them. The WI-Fi worked well. Although a previous reviewer had stated there were no laundry or bath facilities, I believe this park does now have those, but we didn't make use of them. We would stay here again if we were passing through the area. - Guinness

This is a great place with no nonsense. Charging just $375 per month, with no hidden fees. Has cable TV, Wi-Fi, a pool, laundry and great people running the place. - tizwhizkid

This campground was very nice and clean, one phone call and the secret code and we were in. Payment is on the honor system though someone came through the park the next morning checking. The spot we got was wide enough for the motorhome and our unhooked trailer in the same spot. No pull-throughs, would have been nice to have but we managed. If we are in this area again we will stay here. - Bandit23

Nightly rate based on monthly stay There are a lot of work crews here, so it was quiet. No leash rules for pets, so there were a few dogs loose. And it was obvious you don't have to pick up after them either. Our site was not very level but wide enough. There is a fishing pond and laundry room, but we didn't use them. They do have a lot of nice cabins here. Will most likely stay again in the future as we have family nearby. - Tandgtucker

We used this campground as an overnight stop. Wasn't expecting much; didn't get much, but served it's purpose quite well. The price was a little on the high side. After being parked in a maintenance facility with just an electric hook-up, we appreciated having water and sewer, and a quiet campground for a change of pace. Sites aren't especially level, but we had no problems leveling with our jacks. Had called in advance for availability. Plenty of empty spaces. I think we were the only transients in the RV Park. The campground manager I spoke with told us all the sites were back-in, so no surprise there, and it wasn't a biggie to unhook the toad. - 22Trvl

Rate based on $150 per week electric included. Very friendly staff. Park well maintained. If pull though sites are critical like the other person rating this park you will be disappointed. The back in sites are easy to maneuver and about 50% of them are shaded. The cabins look very nice. However, we did not use them but saw housekeeping zipping around, seems like they would be nice. Would like to have had a few more cable channels but the basic took care of our needs. Laundry room was fantastic! We would definitely recommend this park. - BAB1002

We camped in the Cooks Ferry Camping Area at Fairfield Lake State Park in site 72 (back-in, double wide, table on off side). The Cooks Ferry Loop (sites 37-100) was renovated in the past 2 years. New site pads and roads. Very nice. Spacious sites, many with lake view and access. Pull through and back-in sites available. The Post Oak Camping Area (sites 101-135) was open and need of repair. The office informed me they plan to renovate Post Oak this winter. The Springfield Camping Area (sites 1-36) are water only and primarily for tent campers. Very good hiking trails. The camping loops are 3+ miles from the park office, boat ramp and fishing dock. No WiFi in camping loops, only at park office. Fair Verizon and AT&T service. Good water quality. - drfife

We camped in the Cooks Ferry Camping Area at Fairfield Lake State Park in site 69. The Cooks Ferry Loop (sites 37-100) was recently renovated. New site pads and roads. Very nice. Spacious sites, many with lake view and access. Pull through and back-in sites available. The Post Oak Camping Area (sites 101-135) was closed for the winter. That loop has not been updated. The Springfield Camping Area (sites 1-36) are water only and primarily for tent campers. The lake was full and beautiful. Very good hiking trails. 2 boat ramps and fishing docks. This park is a real hidden gem. - drfife

This park is way off the highway. We were traveling through and there isn't much to choose from around here. Price was right. People who worked here were very friendly. The park is definitely run down. Needs lots of work. Lake looked really nice. Boat dock very nice. If you have a boat this place would be fine. - RV Stewardess

The good... The boat ramp is easily accessible. The restaurant on site is decent for burgers and hot breakfast.
The bad...The spots are very small. No space between them. The grounds have a large number of cats roaming free so everything outside smells like a kitty litter box....basically because it is. I cleaned up cat mess every day to keep the smell down. There are quite a few long term residents and they let their dogs do their business wherever they feel like. Nasty and I had to keep my dogs in the trailer the whole weekend because of the cats everywhere.
Giant cockroaches got into everything. Need I say more? - Akrbrsn

The new owners took over this park last April. They have improved the boat ramp to handle three boats at the same time. The lake is 7.5 feet low, but we saw a 25' party barge launch with no problems. We stayed in site #1, which is waterfront and the sunsets were awesome. They have fishing, paddle boats to rent, shaded sites, live bait, and a small general store. The bath houses were small, but clean. They plan to add additional restrooms, cabins, laundry, and grill, later. Corsicana is about twenty minutes away, so plan on bringing your groceries with you. They do allow campfires and grills. This is a gem in the making. - timetokill

We stopped into this great State Park a few days ago on a trip home and found it to be fantastic.
We got a pull through site on the lake that was perfect. We stopped on a week day so there were only 2 other campers there that night. It was beautiful and quiet and a real joy to be there. LIke most Texas State Parks (but not all) they were water & electric sites and none have sewer hookups. There is a nice dump station.
Others have mentioned that you have to unhook your Toad before turning around in the cul de sac at the end of the road - and this is completely true. Like so many others it looked like we could make it but nope.
Now, if you came here on a weekend I imagine this park would be super crowded and a completely different experience. But on a weekday in the Fall it was great.
Nice camp host, very nice and clean bathrooms and showers were an nice addition as well. Again, on a busy weekend they are probably way too small.
We highly recommend this place if you are anywhere near Waco, TX and looking for a good place to stay. - Creativepart

Very nice park. The nature exhibit is interesting. Today we can still enjoy the work of the CCC boys of the '30s. Please note for a trailer or motorhome that the farther you go the tighter the space. The end loop ONLY can accommodate about 25'. If the spots are full a 30ft +/- trailer is most difficult. Great place to stay and relax. - REO

Very small, but very nice park. Shade trees are all around. Half of the sites were fairly open and not so private, but have a great view of the lake. The other half nearest the turnaround are very wooded. Lots of the sites are very unlevel. I had three packs of "Legos" and I still didn't have enough to get it level. Great lake access and views. The fishing pier is very convenient to the camp sites and looked very popular. The staff were extremely courteous but yet unobtrusive. - TTU Guy
