Excellent Passport Member Rate, full hookups with wifi and cable, on site sewer. In the middle of a mobile home park, but it was quiet and tidy. Manager was very sweet! Good Verizon coverage. - Sunneee

A small park with 15 sites in a circle with an outer circle of trailer houses most of which are in very poor shape. While we had no problems, felt somewhat unsafe. Only two of the sites have paved sites, the rest on grass. No patios. Hookups in poor shape. While there are full hookups and 50 amp service, there was no cover on sewer inlet. A small, round cement table at some sites. Very nice owners who stay in a fifth wheel trailer on site. A park manager lives on site. No public bathrooms or showers. No pool or other facilities. We would look elsewhere for another park if in this area. - starwind

Very friendly owner. Clean, safe and easy to find. Not a resort, but a good place to spend a night or two. The mobile home part is on the outside area and the RV spaces are in the middle. Mostly workers in the homes, but a quiet place and the owner lives on the premises. Wi-Fi, cable, and full hookups at a good rate. Will use this place again when in the area. - tbax46

The good part of this park is the the passport america rate of $14.00 and the utilities worked well, wifi was good enough for bill paying and email etc. Like most parks it slowed down in the early evening. Water pressure is high so we used a pressure regulator. Most sites have a concrete pad with a brick patio area. Check in was easy and the young lady was nice. The pull through sites are toe to heel which is nice if you know the people across from you as you share the same patio area and table. Speaking of tables, most sites have what can be best described as a diner booth type table. Fiberglass seat with a padded vinyl back. The vinyl is deteriorating from the weather and frankly just give it a look of Ewww. Our site while being concrete was not very level. I lowered the front and raised the rear as much as possible and still not level. Lastly we were told when we checked in that they have a strong pet policy of all pets on a leash and you must pick up after them. Apparently we were the only ones that got that memo as others let their dogs run loose and I never saw anyone pick up after their pet. Mostly permanent residence with some pretty run down looking rigs. This park is OK for a quick overnight. We stayed here for 5 nights and it was easily 3 nights too many. - Razin Kane

Very nice park, clean, quiet, spacious cement lots! Super friendly hosts. Plenty of parking for extra vehicle. Free Wi-Fi ! Good Verizon coverage. A bit of road noise. Lost power on 5th night because of storm, but it was restored in just a few minutes. - Sunneee

The park seems a bit off the beaten track, but worth the extra distance. Apparently a newer Passport America park because not in the book. The web site lists "gravel pads" but most have been newly finished cement. The manager went out of his way to be friendly and helpful! - Rol and Nancy

Can not stop talking about Fort Parker State Park to anyone who will listen. We fell in love with it from first sight. Well maybe not first sight, the road into the park is in need of repair. Very rough. And all of the grounds at the Park office are grown up but I might be that they are waiting for the wildflowers to got to seed. The Park Rangers were super friendly, all of them. Once you got to the RV loop the lake side views are outstanding. And well cared for. Our RV site was right on the water and we loved it. A perfect site. Sunsets for majestic every night. Fishing was available all around the camp, very nice fishing dock, well lighted for night fishing. There is a nice boat dock and also canoe rentals are available. There is a nice community center for rentals. And also screened shelters that look very nice. Lots of hiking trails, bike trails. Grills at each site, very nice concrete picnic tables at each site. Very clean restrooms and showers although we did not use them. We thoroughly enjoyed the little nature center was educational and entertaining. Nice history lesson on the CCA and the park history. Very sweet and helpful couple who run the Nature Center and work the grounds. I can't wait to return to this amazing state park. - True Texas

Fort Parker is not a big state park. There are less then 30 spots for overnight stay. It is on the Navasota River and Fort Parker Lake. It is quiet and the hiking trails are easy. You can enjoy a picnic lunch and fish. We love the serenity of the place. There is Mexia and Groesbeck close by if you run out of supplies. This is one of our favorite places. - Cirrus

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

I wonder about the other reviews. We called for reservations and was told, "just come in" . Not too professional. when we got there, the roads were very rutty and poor. We looked at what was there camper wise and it looked sad. We did not stay. From the look we got this place is overrated. - waxhands

Front desk lady was very polite. Clean restrooms, showers, laundry area, and even a kitchen area next to the rec room (you MIGHT get Wi-Fi in the rec room). Cable not available at the time we were there. There were probably less than a dozen people camping there when we were there; most of those appeared to be 'living' there. Originally, this RV park was built to house construction crew for the new power plant. Now that the power plant is established, the park is open to the public. It's next to a train track and usually the trains quit running before midnight. They had not maintained the grounds, but on the day that we left, they were mowing the tall grass/weeds - which made it look a lot better. It served our purpose for staying in Riesel and visiting family. Alert - staying during a rainy season is not a good idea; your coach WILL sink in the mud. - Love To RV

This campground was put in for construction workers building a nearby power plant and is geared toward long-term renters. Not much to look at but the sites are long and access is easy to Hwy 6. Nights were quiet. If you are in the area and don't want to drive to Waco this makes a good stopover spot. The clubhouse is decent and guests may use the kitchen. Showers are private bathroom style and clean but very basic. Expensive nightly rate for what you get but worth it to us for the convenience. - RetiredAtLast

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
