This was an overnight stop for us on our way home from south Texas. We pulled in at 7:30 pm. The office was closed and there were no registration forms in the box. We picked a site that looked fairly level. It wasn't. All grass sites. The "paved" road was in very poor shape. The bathrooms & showers were very primitive and not very clean. We used electric only, and were up and on our way by 7:30 a.m. Someone dropped by & left a registration form on our steps while we were in the bathrooms. We never saw a living person while there. This is a good example of why people choose to sleep over at Wal Marts or truckstops. We thought $10 would have been a fair price for sleeping there. - mcleff

Nice wooded park. We stayed here for the winter. The front part of the park was very nice. Back section was not well kept. Owners very nice very caring people. Bathrooms and laundry are dated. Pool needs upgraded. Older park. Does have a very nice clubhouse. - lafoe

We came here on a recommendation from another RVer that used to frequent Woodsy Hollow. It was not as nice as the recommendation or as the web site shows. The campground is mainly full time folks with lots of junk sitting around. The campground seems to have a few sites that they keep for recreational users. They have a nice area that a group had reserved and stayed together. A few sites have a view of the private lake. Roads were dusty and frequently traveled. Bathrooms were fair/poor in repair and cleanliness. They did have kayak and paddle boats for rent, rec room, a good little playground, and a pool. Staff was friendly and helpful. I'm sure it was a good campground at one time, now catering to full time residents. We do not plan to return. - HJH

In consideration that this is the headquarters for the Escapees Club I would expect a top-notch RV park. I was very surprised. Over the years, since the start of the Escapees Club, this park has been added on and added on. As a result it is a mish-mosh of deeded lots where people have built houses or built buildings around their RV's and RV sites. Our site was okay - a pull-through - but there were ant hills and unmowed grass. The park has a pool, a nice club house, and a care center for the elderly. My biggest disappointment was there was no cable and the WiFi that was available is a pay-as-you-go by the local WiFi supplier in town. Not having cable was really a problem. The stations were obviously coming from Houston which is some distance from Livingston so the shows would pixelate and lose signal often (and we have a King Jack antenna). If this park was NOT the home base for the Escapees Club I might not have been so disappointed, but I found it a big let-down to find the headquarters' RV park so wanting. - jomark

The value here comes from the rate for escapee members and the friendly people. Definitely showing it's age. Would not go out of way to stop here but would if passing through. Slow check-in. Was wondering if they were also going to need parents and children's names, DOB and phone number. Enjoyed the ice cream social. - rvicsvol

It has been a year since we stayed here. Things are pretty much the same as last year except that there seemed to be less activities. I was told there is no activity coordinator so no one to organize things. People are friendly here, the sites are adequate. Picnic tables are still old and there is no free wifi or cable tv. As Escapees members we would still come here as we use the mail service and we believe the Care Center is a great idea. Not the nicest Escapees park, but we will always support the organization. - mohocamper

We love that you can reserve a specific site in the Piney Shores and Red Oak areas. The photos on the web site let you see each site, so you know ahead of time what you are getting and that your rig will fit. We wish all state parks had this. These two areas of the park have had renovations done since our last visit in November 2015. The roads are completely repaved, the parking sites redone with concrete, (no more precarious dropoffs at the edge.), new tables, and new fire rings/grills. Piney Shores is right on the bank of the beautiful Lake Livingston, where we enjoyed great sunsets and watching birds such as seagulls, pelicans, and even a pair of Bald Eagles! Most sites are spacious, level, and shaded. Depending on your rig, some sites may require up to 40 feet of electric cord and/or water and sewer hose. Navigating the roads and entering the sites is easy. Electric service was good, but water pressure was 40 PSI most of the week, and dropped to only 20 PSI on a busy Saturday. For those rainy days, we were able to get a strong 4G Verizon signal, and could get all TV networks except ABC. - BrentB

Loved this beautiful park. Its very wooded and we had a great lakeside spot. However, there were millions of caterpillars...literally falling out of the sky (spinning silks from the high trees and dangling down and dropping). The mosquitos were bad also. The interesting thing is...we ended up moving 30 minutes up the lake to another park and there are no bugs here. Our neighbors did say the bugs are not always this bad. The lakeside sites are beautiful though and I loved that we could fish from our site and the trees were perfect for hanging a hammock. Note that this park was closing April 1st, for the remainder of the year. Apparently they are renovating. There is a daily $5 charge for every person over 17, unless you buy the annual state park pass for $70 which allows all adults in your vehicle to avoid the $5 per day fee. There is also an extra $4 fee for an extra car, per day. Our site was a tight fit due to the trees being so close to the pad, but we were able to fit in our 37 foot 5th wheel. We were in the Piney Shores loop. - barrygoodtimes

Stayed in Yaupon Loop. The site pads are asphalt but most are in very poor repair.....uneven, sunken spots, broken off, etc. The loop road is in the same condition. Park is in need of serious maintenance. Camping area in this loop is in a low lying area and is currently very sloppy and flooded. The drainage ditches are not effective. It is seasonal holiday time so the park is very crowded. Most of the campers have dogs and almost none of them have any inclination to pick up after their animals. That makes for a filthy, unsanitary condition in the campground. - RatTailGray

Nice out of the way wooded campground. Very friendly staff and clean restrooms and showers. Close by bike trails at Double Lake Rev Area. - PF Churchill

Really enjoyed our second stay there. If you like a wooded, quiet camping area then this is the place for you. The staff is very nice and friendly. The WiFi is pretty good. Bathrooms are clean. They have trails and have set up a scavenger hunt that you can do along the way. We've been twice and will be visiting them again. There are a few people that are extended stay but had not problems with site cleanliness or noise. - Funk Campers

Great park. Sites are not crammed together. Pleasant, helpful people in charge. Tall pine trees provide shade. Owners held a get-together on the Saturday before Easter with fried chicken. Everyone brought a dish and ate together. Was nice. We will return to this park again. - SunflowerTX

Relatively new park; nice power pedestals. All back-in spots. Reasonably priced laundry. The best wifi I've had at a park yet. However, all these things take maintenance, which I think the park owner is not doing. Nice concrete pads are covered with dirt from heavy spring rains. Asphalt parking along the pads is crumbling and deteriorating. The bathrooms are absolutely the worst I've seen. New construction, like everything else, but no concern for cleaning or ventilating. The shower curtains and ceiling are mildewed, and the smell is strong. Bugs of the creeping and flying kind are everywhere. I stayed for a week and the bathrooms were not cleaned once. - MiketheTexan

Not one person has every been rude to me at this park. Lots of trees, you can't get satellite, but you can pick up local and cables. I didn't use laundry or bathrooms so can't comment those. Nice quiet park. No dust people drive slow here. - JustDon

We enjoyed this RV park. There is a pond on site for fishing and a license is not needed. The park is beautiful with tall trees at every site. It is quiet and away from the traffic noise. The sites are wooded with tall trees in each site. All sites are pull throughs. There are no restrooms or showers. There is laundry service available and the laundry room is spacious and clean. There is a restaurant located directly next door. - Perfection expected

Great cable/wi-fi, water pressure. Pine trees surround all sites. Long pull throughs. Quiet park, majority seemed to be permanent residents. Be careful where you park after a good rain, sites are covered by pine needles and mud underneath can be very deep. Our truck sank almost up to the axle when we started to pull in. - Gypsy4ever

Update review 11/2016 - This is one of our favorite places to camp in our RV. This is a very small camping area in the Sam Houston National Forest near Coldspring Texas. There are sites you can reserve and sites that are first-come-first serve.
There are 2 park hosts that live in the park and they are very accommodating if you need anything, but don't expect to see a constant presence by park staff.
The park is a beautiful forest like facility with very wooded and shady sites, a small lake with plenty of water in it (after a couple drought seasons) and abundant hiking and biking trails.
We only camp on the full service RV sites. (Not all sites are full service.) Some sites are reasonably level and some require substantial leveling efforts. Just make sure you have plenty of Lynx levelers or equivalent. The pedestals are conveniently located with 30/50 amp service, water and dump. The sites driveway is blacktop and most sites have a concrete pad with a large picnic table and a nearby fire pit.
Cell service and TV reception are weak, so don't plan to watch a lot of TV unless you have a satellite system. - Tcamper

This is a great park for fall and winter camping. The small lake has struggled the past few years due to drought conditions in this area so there is not much to do as far as the lake is concerned. However, there is plenty to do if you like hiking or biking the trails, shopping in the nearby town of Coldspring (they have their monthly town square trade days the last Saturday of the month), visiting the historic jail house, or eating at the old style dinner in town. We always reserve one of the full hook-up sites that are paved, reasonably level with a good hook-up pedestal, and that is appropriately positioned. The satellite TV reception is OK, but not great; and the antenna TV reception is poor. This is because of the remote location and abundant tree coverage. The rest rooms are typical Forest service facilities. Not outstanding but adequate. Since we have full hook-ups, this is not an issue to us. The park is shady and very beautiful on a cool crisp fall morning. We have been coming to this park for years and will continue. - Tcamper

Just stayed here at spot 60. Highly recommend this place. Really enjoyed the it, no troubles at all, bath rooms are dated but kept pretty clean. I really didn't see any trash anywhere in the park. Great hiking trails and saw a bunch of kids on bikes so I think they have biking trail as as well but cant swear to it. RV sites are very spacious, ours wasn't real level but for the layout, I will take it any day, hiking trails are nice. AT&T service spotty but you can get a signal most places, Satellite signal a bit tough to get cause all of the trees but would much rather have the trees around us like we did. No dump station but park manager said just pull through one of the open drive through spots with full hook ups and dump there. Only negative thing I can say about this place is I think the park host needs to to tidy up their site, stuff laying around their RV really takes away from the place and be put away and in order like the rest of the park. With that being said, they were super friendly people. I don't think anyone will be disappointed staying here. - drakethib

Nice park on Lake Livingston. Nice that the park is closed for day use during the weekends, cuts down on traffic. My one complaint is the use of boom boxes and car radios that can be heard all off the park. Not a quiet place on Saturday afternoon. - Texan58

We stayed on site 73. Very spacious but lots of long leaf pine needles on pad and in the grassy areas but especially under the picnic table. Evidently the leaf blowers had not been around in a while. Another pet peeve of tidy campers was the fire pit full of trash including plastic bottles. Park maintenance folks hadn't been around to clean up site and we didn't arrive until almost 4pm!
Other than those issues it is a lovely park with lots of amenities and the staff in the entry station and the store were very helpful and pleasant. Our site had a lake view. Unfortunately it was so hot and humid we didn't spend much time out of doors!
This is a great park and lake if you are fishing for cat fish. Unfortunately for us we were fishing for bass and this is not the place for them. Plus the lake is shallow so a light wind can make it very rough. Due to these issues we decided to cut our stay short. We had reserved for two separate stays and cancelled the second one. A word to the wise, be very sure of your stay, once it is booked you CANNOT get a refund. Even though we cancelled the second stay a week in advance the Trinity River Authority (who runs the lake and this campground) does not grant any refunds, EVER. I guess they think that their authority gives them a license to steal! We lost $40.00 to them! - Rick & Karen

Wolf Creek is well maintained. They are always coming by to pick up trash.
The RV sites, sites 34-50, are on a bulkhead very near the edge of the water. Not a good location for small children. The area down by the playground, sites 1-30 are good for any age kid.
A group of campers were making noise late at night and someone came by and stopped the noise. We especially like that the curfew is enforced
Wish they would enforce the same rules during the day. People open car doors and play boom boxes. Not all of us enjoy their music. - Texan58
