16 Parks near Hallsville, Texas
Jan 2017 - $28.00
Easy access, sites a bit unlevel for long motor homes but are workable. Roads are a bit rough. Utilities good with reliable electric and good water pressure. 30 sites total, 10 pull throughs. Corral available for horses. Very nice club house/meeting hall with kitchen and rear deck, bathrooms/showers, and laundry. We found it difficult to walk our small dogs due to many residents allowing their large dogs to run loose (not vicious but quite intimidating), but otherwise enjoyed our stay. - AFChap

We stayed in a pull through for $400.00 a month. We chose pull through because we have a 42 ft big rig. Do not have to pay electric if in a pull through. Park really not good for big rigs. Too close for comfort. Very nice people work and live at park, especially front office staff. She is the best. Washers and dryers area is very clean. I would stay again for overnight. We flooded at our trailer during heavy rains. - sherry whorton

We have stayed at this park numerous times. Per the last reviews it is only 1/4 mile from I 20 but great convenience. The restrooms, laundry are very clean, the staff are very friendly. Good pull through sites. The only "small" concern is their dog area has a lot of stickers/cockerburs which tend to get all over the dogs but lots of room for the dogs. Wish this small concern could be addressed. But love this small/family owned camp area. - Dixie Darling

Advertised as a Passport America park, but would not honor their discount. Office was closed on Sunday. NOISY park: our site was 150 feet from a busy 24 hour convenience store and 300 feet from a BUSY intersection. Loose dogs in the park. Park was clean, easy to get into and out of with big sites. - Hayseed

Quiet, clean and well-maintained park. Far from the highway. - Dead Mule John

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

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

Campsite is a sloped, gravel lot divided into forty serviced sites. There are no trees in the camping area. There is a small children's playground, a dog walk, and a pond adjacent. The washroom and laundry building is tidy and clean. - Gord0

This "park" is not like its website's glowing description. It is actually a sloping stone and gravel parking lot in front of a small, fenced in farm pond. There are a few permanent residents, the majority of whom appear to be transient workers. The individual spaces are roomy and none of them are level due to the generally sloping grade of the land and lack of any attempt at terracing to provide level individual spaces. We tried spaces 3 and 33 and both were off side-to-side by about 6 inches. The owner told us he had plenty of 2x4s to lend us. There is a busy highway nearby and road noise is obtrusive if you leave your windows open. The only grass is a small strip bordering the park and the area around the pond. You can fish for a $5 fee. The laundry/bath area has two individual toilet/shower rooms each for men and women. The wifi signal was non-existent in space 3 (furthest from the office) and very weak in 33 nearer the office.
This is a very basic park, barely okay for an overnight at the Passport America rate. - leorah

Quiet! For an overnight stop, this little family owned and run park is perfect. 2 Miles from the I-20, but million miles away from the roar of the traffic, and next to a pasture full of cows. All Gravel, easy in and out. I would stop here again, and if I needed to stay in the area I would stay here again. Wifi was good. - TravelPaul

Rate reflects no access fees due to Texas State Park Pass. We don't normally give 10's to parks without FHU, but this park deserves it. This is a gem of a state park! Quiet, clean and well kept. This is the nicest state park staff we have ever come across. The park manager is present and active; the office staff is helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Ranger staff, maintenance and camp hosts were all visible and friendly. They welcomed us and went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay. Power was steady at 122V and 55PSI for water. No sewer, but there is a double dump station. It was very clean and provided a trash can and water hook up. They have an island you can access by a walking bridge with picnic tables and trails all thru it. Great bird watching, large boat launch and numerous places to fish and enjoy nature.
There are 2 camping loops, one is 30 amp only, the other is larger, but they only offer about six 50 amp sites at this time. Staff told us they are updating their electricity to the park and hope to have more 50A in the near future. Most are fairly level. The park was quiet while we were here. There are some camping shelters for tenting and a couple of cabins. We plan to return to this park in the future. - Fixn2gocamp

We stayed for a week at lakefront site #52 for $17/night. Non-lakefront is $13. Expect an additional daily entrance fee *per person,* but since we expect to stay at TX state parks for at least 3 weeks, buying the annual pass for $70 will pay itself off. The sites are pretty well spaced apart, some are quite private, but many of them are sloped and too short. The park requires you to park your vehicle on the pavement so we had to park ours sideways while we were unhooked from our 30' 5th wheel. Each site comes with a fire pit, picnic table, hanging hooks, tent pad, and sometimes a cover for the table (ours came with one). No sewer at any of the sites. There is only one bath house for each of the camping loops, and extremely outdated, one of the worst I've come across in my 7 months of full-time RVing. My first shower only lasted 5 minutes because the hot water ran out. Now, I'm wishing I would have listened to the other reviewers and stayed in a regular site away from the lake due to the noise emitted by the coal trains and power plant. It seems to be the loudest at night, lasting just around midnight before it finally quiets down. You can sometimes feel the vibrations from the noise through the RV unit (lasts just a short while). Our Verizon MiFi got 2 bars of LTE, voice was consistent. Got 2 TV channels over the air: some station named COZI (played 60's-80's shows) and a Spanish one. I hate having to write such a poor review for a state park, but this one really does need some improvement to lengthen the parking pads, update the bath houses, and finish building covers for the other sites picnic tables. They can't do anything about the power plant, which sadly will keep us from ever returning on our way back through in the future. - Sara C.

$17 per night was for a mostly level asphalt pad with 50-amp electric and water site in the Bee Tree campground. We do have the TX Parks Pass we purchased for $70 (it allows access to all 90 TX state parks)-otherwise it's $17 per night plus a $3 per person daily entry fee. Sites are generous dirt/sand/dead leaves areas with a picnic table and fire ring. The whole park is loaded with different types of tall trees and low vegetation. There were abundant types of birds flitting about. The night sky is very dark so the stars are brilliant. All the facilities were in good condition and the park staff was very friendly and helpful. There are miles of multi-use and hiking trails. We could hear the power plant and the trains but their noises were in the background. This campground is located about four miles from small town Tatum where there is a very nice grocery store and a couple of restaurants. The park does not have public Wi-Fi access. AT&T and Verizon service was full bars of 4G LTE. We received 15 over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. - DD Rolling Ranch

I differ with some of the other reviews, as we had no power or water issues... This is an older park, which is kept clean and a great overnight stay while on the road. The water pressure was fine and we showered in our rig with no problems. The wifi is very good, until the "streaming" starts at night. At one time the park had broken clay for ground cover but that is mostly gone now replaced by gravel. The sites are slightly sloped but I didn't need to raise any tires to compensate for it. They do take credit cards and email you the receipt at the time of transaction. I was happy with the two times I stopped there and plan to use them again. - John and Vikki

This is a trailer, old camper park with grass and red clay sites. Way over due for a updating. Strong WiFi. But nothing else. Just a stop over. No security. Cash or check only. $32 for 50 amps. We were afraid to use water, probably a well. Out in the country in the sticks. Very quiet. They do not take reservations. Previous reviews said weak electricity, but our 50 amp was okay. No cable. Check before you go if after a lot of rain for run off and flooding. Old electric connections. - Oooooooo

We only camped here because I was getting tired. The park is old, weak electric. The owner is very friendly. We had a pull-through site that was grassy, but level. The owner told me he has owned the park for 25 years. There are a few monthly residents. - Joceil

The site was level, which was great. Our site had plenty of shade.
The park filled up quickly and, while there were a lot of other campers, we weren't jammed in together. There was ample room between sites.
My only complaint was the grass between sites was around a foot tall.
All in all, we had a great experience. - GaryWB

We booked for a week but had to leave after one night. Very low voltage on power pedestal. No one on duty to fix it on duty for 3 days. So we went somewhere else. Locals are pretty much in control here, rules are not applied as far as parking and number of people. A few long termers. Spaces are close together near the water and in area 2, but better up on the hill a bit. Boat launch for the campers. Water pressure ok. Very nice views of the lake from all sites. Gate attendant was competent but cranky. We probably would not stay there again. - Fixn2gocamp

We stayed here for the July 4 weekend. Park was not kept up like in previous years. Granted water level had been 12 ft. above normal as recently as a month earlier. NO grass had been mowed in awhile. Cigarette butts everywhere in our site. Fire pit wasn't clean. One thing we did notice was there were no summer maintenance volunteers as previous outings here, only the two men at the entrance gate. We will stay here again but wasn't real satisfied with the condition of the park considering it's a COE and maintained by our government. Duh, there's the problem!! - Juedoo

Nice ACE park sitting on Lake O The Pines. Sites are fairly spacious if you stay away from the water sites otherwise they are a little close. They have a couple of the "double up" party sites. Electric is steady, water pressure good. They have a tent area and a boat launch. There is a first-come-first-serve area away from the water, but it seems to be inhabited by long termers. Someone told us the 3 campers in there were workers, but they seemed to have other jobs and we never saw them working in the park. Gate attendants were knowedgable and friendly. Watch the trees however, they are not well maintained and we saw several large limbs come down during and after a storm. You pay a few dollars extra a night if your site has a tent pad. We might stay here again if in the area. - Fixn2gocamp

Arrival: A little bit tough picking just the right turn with so many different USACE spots. Otherwise, not bad. The gate has swing arms and appears to be manned 24/7... no idea why.
Roads: Texas FM Roads. Most are well maintained regardless the approach.
Sites: The signs say "Rxx-Rxx" but the sites are "Exx-Exx". Very confusing. Three inbound lanes with one outbound. Turn-around circle completely unmarked. Horrible. Most of the sites have level concrete pads - nice...but they all have had considerable erosion making them all pedestals -- sharp drop-offs. Got in and out OK, but there are tons of rubber marks from those that didn't.
Restrooms: FAIL! Dirty. Leaking fixtures. Bugs everywhere.... even the toilet seat.
Not all pull-thru's identified on the website are. Great for those that know the park. Total turn-off for those new to the park.
Cost: $18 (1/2 off with Access Pass) for electric and water.
Internet: No Wi-Fi. Cell is awesome for AT&T. Otherwise, not so much. Plenty of sky for satellite.
Other: Staff could care less. Didn't even give us a map. Ants are everywhere. Covered our trailer with 5 trails within 3 hours of arrival. One dumpster that overfills on weekends. Nothing else. Don't expect to see a trash can for puppy poop on your walk. We will never stay there again. - JC Penny

Love this park. Spacious sites. Quiet. No problems at all. Beware of rising water. Some sites can be under water that are close to the lake. Park is well maintained. Roads are great and cause no issues. Lights out and people are relatively quiet. - debbieandjon
