Park is OK for overnight not much more. Lots of permanent trailers. Hot tub and small pool. Steep exit but we didn't have a problem. We camped at Shallow Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stopped here many times for short stays. The staff could not be nicer. The transient sites are fairly level. The entire park is concrete which is very nice for walking. The golf course is under renovation so there is a bit of noise, but it is not bothersome. We exited in a 42 ft. motorhome with a tow and did not scrape, you just have to go slowly. We camped at Shallow Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The town of Gladewater is fun for shopping and there are several nice restaurants. Our favorite is Tumbleweeds. In nearby Kilgore the East Texas Oil Museum on the grounds of Kilgore College is a must visit!

Just an overnight while we visited friends in the area. Level pads on our row, some rows are quite steep concrete pads. Many long term units but very neat and quiet. Excellent staff, efficient and helpful. We camped at Shallow Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Overall got much more than expected, especially for the price - was actually surprised at how nice it was. Bathroom facilities were great (4 or 5 uni-sex bathrooms, each with vanity, shower and toilet) - very big and clean. Pool was in excellent shape. My mark-down is due to entrance/exit (exit is horrible for an RV) and unlevel sites. My tow car requires an 8" drop hitch - I slightly dragged going in entrance and didn't even try to use exit with RV - I had to drive out the Entrance or I would have significantly damaged RV rear frame & hitch. LOTS of damage to exit pavement from RVs dragging. Roads and sites in great shape, all concrete, but sites very un-level. My site required 2" blocks under both front levelers, 2" under driver tire and 4" under passenger tire. I saw quite a few RVs with both front wheels off the ground (yikes). A number of trailers with front right jacked way up and rear left just a few inches above ground-level. But the sites were very long, and neighbors close but not too close; however with the angle of sites it wasn't bad. We camped at Shallow Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Great park. Easy access from Interstate. All concrete roads and pad sites. We had a pull thru site and did not disconnect. Plenty of room (approx 90' long) and room to park. Site has a small slope to the front but no problem to level. We have a 43' 5th wheel and had no problems with the exit. Will stay again when in the area. We camped at Shallow Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

"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. We camped at Shallow Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Shallow Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Shallow Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stopped for an overnight while traveling through Texas. The park had a mixture of travelers and longterm guests. Our site was level and was long enough to pull-through without unhooking the toad. The swimming pool was very nice, well kept and clean. I would stay here again. We camped at Shallow Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I'll start with the bad things: NONE. Shallow Creek could serve as a benchmark park. Excellent camp host. Nice concrete level sites. Superb WIFI. Clean everything. Electrical and water hookups great condition. The golf course is no longer owned by the RV park. There is a pool, a catch and release fish pond, laundry, hot tub, playground, big private showers, and each is well-cared for. Bottom line: highly recommend. We camped at Shallow Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Hooray, They are rebuilding the entrance ramp. Pay attention; the north exit ramp is being used for both entering and exiting the park. Also looks like they are repairing a site.. As usual great stay and very nice park hosts. We camped at Shallow Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly staff. Concrete/level sites and a very clean park. Clean all in one bathroom/shower combo, nice for privacy. The pool was nice on a hot summer day and the wifi works OK, sometimes a little slow. The only negative is the entrance into the park has a dip that many, including us, have scraped. The exit is a little better, but not much. We camped at Shallow Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nightly regular rate is $33.00, but you can use your Passport America Sun-Wed for 50% off and your Good Sam's for 10% off. Rate includes 50/30/20A, water, sewer, cable, excellent Wi-Fi, pool & hot tub all from your pull thru or back in concrete site. There was just enough grass to enjoy, but our site was missing a tree for shade. Some sites do have shade trees. For you golfers, the golf course was next door. And for families, it had a nice, smaller playground and a splash pad. Only reason we did not rate it a 10 - the entry and exit was a little steep and our rv scraped a little. The first row of pull thrus (#1-8) were not level front to back and you will need extra blocks for your front jacks. We really enjoyed the campground and thought is was a great value for all of the amenities! We camped at Shallow Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
