We loved all of the amenities in the park. The park isn't close to the lake at all, and if you want to take your boat there will be travel time. I wish the store to check out game equipment stayed open later. We camped at Thousand Trails / Lake Texoma in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Nearby Pelican's Landing is very delicious!

I am a very long time Thousand Trails member and know this park extremely well. Unfortunately, this park is aggressively deteriorating fast. Electrical power is terrible (specifically 50 amp). Severally times we had to run our refrigerator on gas to have enough power to run 2 a/c in the Texas heat . Roads are in terrible condition and constantly in need of repair. The most disturbing issue we have with this park is the staff (specifically the rangers). First impressions and helpfulness are always important after a long day on the road but it is "always" a chore to get the rangers to come out and help (usually camped out behind their TV). If anyone is thinking of joining the TT network please do not compare the facilities at this park to other TT parks. If you did you probably would not join. We camped at Thousand Trails / Lake Texoma in a Fifth Wheel.

Continues to be one of the worst Thousand Trails Parks we have stayed at. Interior roads are terrible (pot holes), electrical and water service were marginal at best (numerous time water and electric went off unannounced – incoming power at 30 amp pedestals was 15-20% below 120v), and, finally, staff continues to be extremely unfriendly and non-responsive. This resort continues to be a weekend destination for most TT members with extended memberships initiatives (cash flow) directed towards annual site leases. Anyone considering an investment in outdoor camping with TT (specifically zone memberships) should inspect what they can expect at TT Texoma. We camped at Thousand Trails / Lake Texoma in a Fifth Wheel.

This park can be described as both full and empty. There are many RVs here but most are unoccupied. The many annuals make it a bit challenging to find a good site, but we counted 5-10 acceptable vacant full hook up sites that weren't in use when we arrived. There are both family and adult only pools/spas and activity center plus adult only activity center. WiFi is available only at the activity center (even with a WiFi Ranger I get nothing). In spite of being near the lake, the only access is by driving out a back gate and a then a distance down to the lake. Sites are large and reasonably spaced. The cabins look real nice.

Thousand Trails rate. Yes, there are a lot of long term lease sites, but there was no problem finding a good site. There is lots of real estate between sites so there is privacy and elbow room to spare. Bathhouses and laundry were clean and well maintained. Some 50 AMP sites available. Staff was friendly and courteous. Catfish Haven & Catfish Platter both a short drive away & good grub. The only real issue is the interior roads which are a little rough. Sites take a little leveling but utilities are convenient. There is lots of grass and plenty of hiking trails. Lake Texoma is huge and Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge is nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will return when through the area again. We camped at Thousand Trails / Lake Texoma in a Fifth Wheel.

We received a free membership with the purchase of our new RV. We decided to give the Lake Texoma facility a shot and camped here recently. The facility has the appearance of once being very nice, but hasn't been kept up quite as much in recent years. Lots of long term lease sites, so weekenders don't get first pick of the nicer sites. We prefer more wooded sites and the A loop -- which is fairly wooded -- does not have FHU. Bummer, but we only camped on a long weekend, so no big deal. There's a nice playground for the kiddos and lots of bathrooms throughout. Don't forget your Claritin-D! The pollen here is thick and can make those with allergies pretty miserable. We camped at Thousand Trails / Lake Texoma in a Travel Trailer.

We have 30 plus years experience staying at this park. Have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sad to say we only stay here out of necessity and not by choice. Park continues to deteriorate and has lost the majority of its open and best sites to annual storage and/or leases. Roads are consistently in need of repair and general maintenance is visually nonexistent. We camped at Thousand Trails / Lake Texoma in a Fifth Wheel.

Could be a great park. We liked it but there is not much to do in the area. Not much going on in the Park due to the time of year. They did have a Thanksgiving dinner going on. Main draw back is the fact that 60 percent of the sites are long term leases and they take most of the good sites. Would be real hard to find a good site in the summer. All seems to be maintained well but some sites we saw need some repair. We camped at Thousand Trails / Lake Texoma in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice staff and quite helpful. Large gravel sites with 50 amp available. Pull-throughs available and good sight lines for satellite. Restaurant nearby called Catfish Haven has great selection of pies at a fair price. We camped at Thousand Trails / Lake Texoma in a Motorhome.

Sites were too close with no privacy. No cover for picnic tables and the site area was non-paved with unlevel rock base. Don't know if it was the time of year, but a lot of things to do were closed or open very few hours. Cabins seem to be better choice here as we will not use this park for camping. Not impressed for price paid. We camped at Thousand Trails / Lake Texoma in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the better Thousand Trails Parks. The manager is very diligent and tries to keep things working at all times. IT gets very busy on weekends in the summer so you must reserve very early. We camped at Thousand Trails / Lake Texoma in a Motorhome.

I've stayed at this TT location before. Used to be our favorite, but now that they are allowing annual leases, it's hard to find a site. There were no 50A available and only a few sites with full hookups. The facility is very run down and maintenance has been deferred for a long time. That said, the pool is still pretty good and the mini-golf is somewhat OK. We will come back, but only because we live close and we have the TT membership.

We have traveled all over the country and visited 53 of the 59 Thousand trails properties: this used to be one of our favorites. They still have a beautiful property but all the facilities are in disrepair and just dirty. Our original site had the electrical short out underground (melting down our electrical plug) and they had to close a whole row of sites which were not reopened over the next 12 days that we were here. The whole park has been turned into more of a time share than a campground. 120 of the 250 sites have been sold on an annual basis and sat empty for most of the three weeks we were here. That left few decent sites available for campers. The manager is clearly out of his depth and totally unapologetic for the deficiencies with his park. All he wants to do is sell more sites to " meet his goal." Most of the staff seems to be very unhappy and were usually very grumpy when you could find someone. This was our third stay here, and very much enjoyed the first two stays, but we won't be back and may even get out of Thousand Trails altogether.

This was our first visit on our new TT membership. The park is very nice. We did not get a FHU site as it was a holiday and we were too late arriving. Did notice quite a few annual rental sites and of course they had FHU. The restrooms are dated but air conditioned and clean. There are two pools and we really enjoyed the adults only pool. The laundry is too small for all the sites. Only four washers and four dryers in the entire park. The boat ramp area was nice as was the fishing dock area. There were lots of activities over the weekend. We had some problems with all the overhanding tree limbs and do feel they need to be trimmed back for the big rigs. This park is not close to any sizable town, so one needs to come fully stocked for the stay. We camped at Thousand Trails / Lake Texoma in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice preserve. It is in good repair, the staff is friendly, and the activities are well done. Bathrooms were clean. The adult pool was very nice, except that the spa was not working. The family center spa had no heat. We were in site Q45, a 50 amp site. The area was quiet, even though we were here for the 4th of July weekend. The Friday morning cinnamon rolls were fresh and the weekend breakfast was a good deal for the money. The only reason that I gave it a 9 was that the store could have been improved with a better selection of merchandise. We camped at Thousand Trails / Lake Texoma in a Motorhome.
