Made reservations prior and arrived Sunday. Office was closed and no envelope for us. The camp host did not know we were arriving. A poor start but found the park satisfactory.
A cleaning lady made us feel welcome, contacted the park host, and overall did a great job helping us.
Park was clean, sites have concrete pads, grass between sites. All utilities worked well.
We found a constant noise from a motor running on the property close by. Not extremely loud but consistent.
Overall a good place for an overnight. - RDRV

Nice park, large level gravel pull-throughs. Individual bath/showers, very clean. Note that they no longer except PPA. Slightly disappointed because it was one of the reasons I chose the park. - SnowBird 5050

We arrived on a rainy, stormy evening and were greeted with a warm welcome from the office staff. We were given plenty of information on local places of interest. Our site was a level concrete pad that was much appreciated during the huge downpour. The amenities were absolutely first class and we really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were super friendly and we take away some lovely memories of a great night of music. - KenandCathy

"Big Rig Access" should be removed from this park's description. Entry is abrupt and narrow, and what passes for the "exit" point is so steeply dipped that there's risk of scraping a long motorhome's underside and possible damage. Ours is 43' long, and I refused to use the "exit". There are scrape marks on the concrete attesting to this danger on the exit. We exited through the narrow entrance, and we won't return here. The park is primarily full-timers in trailers; few motorhomes were present when we were here. The entire property is on sloping terrain. - racklefratz

This is a very clean park with all concrete sites and roads. Each site has room for 2 vehicles and they each have a picnic table. The staff was very pleasant and helpful during my stay. It is mostly a live in park and not many travelers passing through. The bathrooms were very clean and were individual rooms with a toilet, sink and shower. Laundry was good and the machines were $1.50 each. The golf course is not part of the park anymore but it can still be used for a fee. My husband tried to fish in the pond but it is more of a drainage hole rather than a good fishing pond. We paid a weekly rate of $150.00 which I thought was a very reasonable rate for such a clean park. - younglisa

This is an older RV park that has been updated with the times. Sites are all concrete pads with grass areas in between. Site spacing runs from close by to somewhat spacious. The park has both pull through and back in sites. The utilities are located in the rear 1/4 of the site so long hoses may be needed. All utilities worked very well. Warning you may need a water pressure regulator to protect against burst pipes and hoses as the pressure is very high. Cable has 24 somewhat clear channels, and 15 OTA channels. Satellite should be available from most sites. The facilities are clean and well maintained. - lllkrob

NIce well maintained park with level sites/concrete slabs, very quiet with lots of room between neighbors, pet friendly with lots of green grass, in a clean country setting. The park owner & all employees are some of the nicest folks we have had the pleasure of meeting. We'll be back!!! - chiefbowen

We have been staying in this park for 3 months while traveling with my husbands job. Park is super clean and very quiet. Owner is located on site and is always a phone call away. He tries very hard to make sure campers are happy. Well lit up at night also. They have 3 fishing ponds for those wanting to fish. There is a swimming pool that is open during the summer months that is very nice. They have a huge camp house that allows campers to watch big screen tv or play pool or just hang out. He has recently had wifi repaired and i can actually say it is probably the best wifi we have found while traveling. He has 2 different types of spots. Regular and deluxe. We stayed in a delux spot which has concrete pad and also a carport to park your vehicle under. There is a storage building also that we put our deep freeze in. The lot has 2 electric meters and also 2 water hookups. There is a picnic table at all spots. Their regular spots also have a concrete pad to park on. They are also nice because they usually have more shade than the deluxe spots. Monthly rates were regular $270 plus electric and deluxe was $370 plus electric. It's a very nice park and one would have to decide wether they need the extra carport and shed the deluxe spot offers. I personally found it very useful having the carport due to the amount of rain we received and being able to still grill underneath it. I would highly recommend staying at Watts RV park in Gilmer Texas. - soney40

We are on our 2nd month stay here and our daily rate is based on that. This park nestled in rural East TX, has grown over the years and is always being improved on. It is about a mile off Hwy 155 and the road to the park has been repaved by the city. The park roads are gravel and whilst maintained, can be dusty and bumpy in areas. The sites, some hilly, have flat concrete pads with water, electric 30/50 and sewer hookups. There are shady and open spots to chose from. Some have a covered patio and shed near their pad. The free wifi serves our needs for now. No problem with Verizon cell phone coverage.
There are 3 ponds, one under reconstruction due to a leak and will be restocked later. There is a nice pool and a great clubhouse that has a kitchen, bathrooms with showers, library room, pool tables and comfy couches to watch the big screen TV. There is also an event center that can be booked for parties and gatherings.
The grounds have picnic shelters with grill pits. It is a lovely little park with piney trees, well mowed grass areas and quiet and peaceful. Everyone is friendly and helpful and it makes for a comfortable stay as we have to be here d/t a family illness. - TheWetzels

I lived in this park for about six months and I am very glad I moved to a different park (Shallow Creek RV Resort in Gladewater, TX). This was basically privately owned land that the owner had put many RV sites on. It was not well kept, had all dirt roads that were VERY bumpy, and some of the residents were very loud. I used the laundry facilities once and never did again because my clothes stunk after they were done. They were very nasty facilities. The trees are pine trees and dripped all over my trailer. I am still working on cleaning up the mess. The owner is very strange and has a lot of rules that no one seems to follow anyway. The sites are not paved in any way. I would not recommend staying at this park. Instead, try Shallow Creek RV Resort in Gladewater, TX. - A.J Meals

This was a great find. Elec and water. Has dump station on the way out. Very quiet. Nice park connected with children's playground and tennis court. Nice walking path. If you're between Dallas and Shreveport on I-20, check it out. Probably not a good park if your RV is longer than 34 ft. - LisaTom

Very nice park, well maintained, clean and quiet. No working 50 amp at any of the sites the night we stayed there, but 30 amp was fine with the use of an adaptor. There is no sewer hookup at the sites but there is a dump station. As other reviewer wrote: "The RV park entrance is on the west side at South Commerce street between Harris Street and West Woodlawn (Hwy 42)." We will stay there again when in the area. - Mom_of_Two

The other reviewer provided a good description of the RV park, but as he indicated it is difficult to find. I spent over a half hour at dusk looking for it, finally getting correct directions from someone walking his dog. It is in Driller Park, a very large park. Correct GPS coordinates are listed in the new version of rvparkreviews.com, but for those people who do not have a GPS.... The RV park entrance is on the west side at South Commerce street between Harris Street and West Woodlawn (hwy 42). There is a RV park sign at the entrance, which includes a location that is only close on my GPS. I could not rate service, since nobody was there. I did not have time to go to City Hall and look for the correct office the next morning. I'll telephone them and mail a check when I return home. We would stay there again. - Jim22

This is an easy location to get to. Very friendly staff. The park is out in the open with out trees. There are a few covered sites. We had a pull through on asphalt. The park sites are spacious. There is a dog run but I was very disappointed that visitors had not cleaned up after their pets even though there were bags and trash receptacle. I even walked my dog on another grassy area that was littered with poop! - oniedu

Passport America, Good Sam. Fairly new park. Very nice asphalt slabs w/very good gravel roads. No grass or trees in park. Free WIFI works well. Apx. 6 covered sites. Easy access, friendly host. My only caution would be the utility hookups. They are at extreme rear of the site. A long sewer hose plus an extension will be needed, especially for a motorhome. The sewer connection is also rather high above the ground making dumping difficult for motorhomes. Water & electric connections are very close to the ground (perhaps 4 inches) ...connecting is a little more difficult than normal because of being so close to the ground. - AFChap

Very nice park with paved roads and paved sites. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. There is a small dog run but a large open field adjacent to the park that can be used for pet exercise. Verizon reception was good and the park has good WiFi. Cable is also included in the rate. Water quality is very good. The park has a high percentage of permanent residents but all of the sites were very orderly and clean. We will definitely stay here again at some point. - Don & Jean G.

Access is good. Interior roads are very wide and paved. Sites are long, wide, level and paved. Utilities are very good. Small dog park (could be a lot bigger). But, lots of areas in a nature area to walk dogs on leash. Staff is very friendly. Landscaping is beautiful. The long term campers keep their sites neat. There is a gun club next door, and you can hear the shooting into the afternoon, and then is disappears. You can't hear it in the coach. We got a premium sited - but not sure what made it premium . . . it looked like the others. We have stayed here before, and will again. This place is a gem. - okdiver

The facility is in an East Texas setting with lots of pine trees and the usual pine needles, etc. The sites we had were on crushed granite (?) material. It rained a lot that weekend so there was water running and laying around. It was a good Texas camping experience. The activities for the Halloween weekend were in keeping with a family atmosphere, and lots of families were there with their campsites decorated for the occasion, along with hayrides and trick or treating. - BOTRA

Back in site in premium area so site was double wide, all gravel, with concrete pad, covered, picnic table. Backed up to woods, very quiet. Great place for families. Paved roads, clean. Pools were closed for season but both full & running. In addition to site fee, they charge $5/person/nite plus $5/person for any guests. Gated so very secure. Tall pine trees, lovely. - Hulda

Lake Hawkins RV Park is operated by Wood County and located near Hawkins, Texas. It is 15 miles north of Tyler State Park.

The park encourages draining grey water at the campsites. Rates are $20/night. Reservations advised for Friday and Saturday nights.
We were in site 4 and will return. - drfife

Great little park. Nice grounds among pines on the lake. Quiet, level pads. Senior discount. Good spacing between sites. Most sites don't have sewer, but for the price it's not important. Friendly staff. - tbax46

Hawkins is a rather small park with large pine trees. It is very attractive, but the sites are wide open (no privacy). It is somewhat of an "anything goes" park (multiple units per site, loud music, park on grass). I'm not saying that any of this bothered me, just making you aware. There is only one shower and one toilet in the bathroom, so plan on waiting. They do allow you to reserve a specific site. They have a large area for tent campers, a very nice sandy beach, boat ramp, fishing pier, volleyball courts and a couple of cabins for rent. It's about 4 miles to the town of Hawkins, where there's a grocery and a few other stores. It's about 26 miles to Tyler. If you like a somewhat secluded, quiet place where other campers can't really see everything you're doing, Lake Hawkins RV Park is not for you. - Mean Green Kyle

We stayed 3 nights in the Lakeside camping loop L71 a premium site with full hookups . Nice site with a good view of the lake. This loop is a little tight for maneuvering 40' motorhomes with a toad, but can be done. Sites at our end of the loop were a little closer than we like but much better than most parks. The State Park is only about 2 miles from I20, so is a good place to spend the night if you are passing through. In addition to the nightly rate of $25 there is a $5 per entrance fee unless you have a Texas State Park pass. The campsites can be a little muddy if it is raining and it did rain 2 out of our 3 night stay. - Ruffin It

This was our first time in this park, have heard about it for years and were not disappointed. Beautiful lake with very nice swimming area, clean bathrooms and showers, well stocked park store and level sites with convenient hookups. They are supposed to replace Big Pine Loop early next year, but Lake View sites are great. Even though it was 100 every day, we had a great time and had several "friends" (colons) come see us every evening. We'll definitely be back!!! - Texjammer

Once again, the weather in July is not my first choice but we had a wedding to attend. The cost of a site isn't so bad until you had the per person non resident cost added(24.00 site plus 14.00 for two people). Nice grass area's even in the summer and concrete table area's. All utilities worked well although we did experience a power outage. - acampingfan
