Great little park. Nice grounds among pines on the lake. Quiet, level pads. Senior discount. Good spacing between sites. Most sites don't have sewer, but for the price it's not important. Friendly staff. - tbax46

Hawkins is a rather small park with large pine trees. It is very attractive, but the sites are wide open (no privacy). It is somewhat of an "anything goes" park (multiple units per site, loud music, park on grass). I'm not saying that any of this bothered me, just making you aware. There is only one shower and one toilet in the bathroom, so plan on waiting. They do allow you to reserve a specific site. They have a large area for tent campers, a very nice sandy beach, boat ramp, fishing pier, volleyball courts and a couple of cabins for rent. It's about 4 miles to the town of Hawkins, where there's a grocery and a few other stores. It's about 26 miles to Tyler. If you like a somewhat secluded, quiet place where other campers can't really see everything you're doing, Lake Hawkins RV Park is not for you. - Mean Green Kyle

Good park. Friendly people. Lots of activities. They were remodeling some areas that we could not use. Pool is nice. Quiet at night. - debbieandjon

The facility is in an East Texas setting with lots of pine trees and the usual pine needles, etc. The sites we had were on crushed granite (?) material. It rained a lot that weekend so there was water running and laying around. It was a good Texas camping experience. The activities for the Halloween weekend were in keeping with a family atmosphere, and lots of families were there with their campsites decorated for the occasion, along with hayrides and trick or treating. - BOTRA

Back in site in premium area so site was double wide, all gravel, with concrete pad, covered, picnic table. Backed up to woods, very quiet. Great place for families. Paved roads, clean. Pools were closed for season but both full & running. In addition to site fee, they charge $5/person/nite plus $5/person for any guests. Gated so very secure. Tall pine trees, lovely. - Hulda

This is a small, no frills campground. There is little for children to do, so take that into account. Most of the guests are long term. The campground is clean and well maintained. The camp sites are level and easily accessed. Management is onsite and very attentive to your needs. We were here for several days and will definitely stay here again next time we are in the Tyler area. - usedtobe

Our experience was very good. This is a small very quiet park. They try to target a mature customer, and therefore don't have anything for small children. They do have a small private lake with fishing for customers as well as a paddle boat for free use. Each site has a table and there is a nice community pavilion and barbecue grill. The staff and owner were very friendly and helpful without being intrusive. There are a number of long term residents but all are very well kept sites and trailers. We would not hesitate to recommend them. - aj brightman

This is a pretty basic park; at first glance, not inviting; but once in and set up it measures up well. The owner assisted us and was from the get-go wonderful. They had just endured the rains (4" in one day alone) and thus had some work to do on the park. The Wi-Fi didn't work due to the rains but all other utilities were fine. She went out of her way to try and rectify the Wi-Fi issue. A good person and a good park. We would stay here again without hesitation. - TPDBOB8687

NIce well maintained park with level sites/concrete slabs, very quiet with lots of room between neighbors, pet friendly with lots of green grass, in a clean country setting. The park owner & all employees are some of the nicest folks we have had the pleasure of meeting. We'll be back!!! - chiefbowen

We have been staying in this park for 3 months while traveling with my husbands job. Park is super clean and very quiet. Owner is located on site and is always a phone call away. He tries very hard to make sure campers are happy. Well lit up at night also. They have 3 fishing ponds for those wanting to fish. There is a swimming pool that is open during the summer months that is very nice. They have a huge camp house that allows campers to watch big screen tv or play pool or just hang out. He has recently had wifi repaired and i can actually say it is probably the best wifi we have found while traveling. He has 2 different types of spots. Regular and deluxe. We stayed in a delux spot which has concrete pad and also a carport to park your vehicle under. There is a storage building also that we put our deep freeze in. The lot has 2 electric meters and also 2 water hookups. There is a picnic table at all spots. Their regular spots also have a concrete pad to park on. They are also nice because they usually have more shade than the deluxe spots. Monthly rates were regular $270 plus electric and deluxe was $370 plus electric. It's a very nice park and one would have to decide wether they need the extra carport and shed the deluxe spot offers. I personally found it very useful having the carport due to the amount of rain we received and being able to still grill underneath it. I would highly recommend staying at Watts RV park in Gilmer Texas. - soney40

We are on our 2nd month stay here and our daily rate is based on that. This park nestled in rural East TX, has grown over the years and is always being improved on. It is about a mile off Hwy 155 and the road to the park has been repaved by the city. The park roads are gravel and whilst maintained, can be dusty and bumpy in areas. The sites, some hilly, have flat concrete pads with water, electric 30/50 and sewer hookups. There are shady and open spots to chose from. Some have a covered patio and shed near their pad. The free wifi serves our needs for now. No problem with Verizon cell phone coverage.
There are 3 ponds, one under reconstruction due to a leak and will be restocked later. There is a nice pool and a great clubhouse that has a kitchen, bathrooms with showers, library room, pool tables and comfy couches to watch the big screen TV. There is also an event center that can be booked for parties and gatherings.
The grounds have picnic shelters with grill pits. It is a lovely little park with piney trees, well mowed grass areas and quiet and peaceful. Everyone is friendly and helpful and it makes for a comfortable stay as we have to be here d/t a family illness. - TheWetzels

This was our first time in this park, have heard about it for years and were not disappointed. Beautiful lake with very nice swimming area, clean bathrooms and showers, well stocked park store and level sites with convenient hookups. They are supposed to replace Big Pine Loop early next year, but Lake View sites are great. Even though it was 100 every day, we had a great time and had several "friends" (colons) come see us every evening. We'll definitely be back!!! - Texjammer

First of all this is a beautiful park and lake, just waiting for you to explore, hike, camp, swim, bike, and/or fish. Lots of pine trees and 8 hiking trails the shortest one is less than a half mile and the longest 2.53 miles with varying degrees of elevation and skill. We stayed in the pull-throughs which were plenty long for our 33' Fifth wheel and fairly level. Utilities were in great working order and site was clean and generously laid out. This park was developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and therefore has a nostalgic feeling about it. There is a children's wading pool, rock waterfall, and Beauchamp Springs. Scenic views and historic buildings blend into the landscape. We have stayed here before and will stay here again. - the Fishers

Everything from our review two years ago is still accurate except that we did hear some traffic noise is the distance this time, and the power went out after a storm for about 16 hours. Also, there are lots of ants in the campsites, which invaded our RV, and the park was out of firewood the entire week we were there. We bought some at the nearby convenience store, but it turned out to be so green it wouldn't burn. Other than that, we enjoyed a lovely stay. Staff was friendly and helpful, as were the hosts. We enjoyed hiking and boating, and relaxing while taking in the view of the lake. Overall it is a very nice park. - BrentB

We stayed two separate nights at this park. It's a no frills park, but a good park for overnight travel or a few night stay in the area. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. They know the area well and will give you recommendations for things to see and do! Call ahead or review website for directions. Entrance to park is up a slight hill, but the short term sites are close to level for the rig. If you need to unhook your tow, you may want to pull forward to disconnect your tow before setting your rig. If not, your Rig and tow will fit on the site. Sites are wide enough for slide outs and awnings. The roads in are fine, and the sites are dirt/gravel. Plenty of area to walk dogs. They also have a small laundry room. Full timers are located in the back. There are trains that run across the street and you will hear the rumble but AC or fans help drowns out the sound. Visit Mineola, the old town has unique stores and great restaurants. We'll stay here again when passing thru town! - KKColorado

We intended staying here for three plus days. Day one, upon arriving we were the only ones in the short stay area. Obviously just mowed overgrown pasture-like grounds. Pads were weed/grass with hardly no gravel visible. While hooking up, ants by thousands started crawling up elec/sewer lines and tires. Coach invaded. We went to Walmart and spent $30.00 plus on insecticides. Sticker briers by thousands. Ruined a pair of new clogs embedded in soles and my feet. Water hookup underground in hole full of ants. Never seen a water hookup under ground, usually a riser. Train noise all day and night. Next to highways with lots of traffic very noisy. Lots of full timers in another area.
Only thing nice was the hosts. We left the next morning. Hosts refunded payment. Maybe sometime had been a nice park, but not now. Would not recommend. - grandlake1

Good park and will stay here again! Friendly staff. Pulling in looked interesting going up a small rise; however, the 6 overnight spots are gravel and level. Nice DVD selection available for check out. The trains roll by but nothing that would wake or bother even a light sleeper. Easy to find. - Sharjeep

Just off of Route 20 this park makes a convenient overnight stop which is easy to get into and out of. It is rough around the edges. But, everything worked and the price, at $20, is right.
The layout for transients is unusual. You are to park in a circle, yes just like the wagon trains of yesterday. It works once you figure it out.
The park is over 90 percent low-end long timers. The transients are assigned sites on the highway side. The highway, Route 29 is close, less than one hundred yards.
Wifi is good. The water is fair. It has a taste and 257 ppm of contaminants. The wife, cat, and I would not hesitate to stop here in the future.
Note that Garmin doesn't know about this park but can find it using the address. - The Penguin

Unusual park as others have mentioned. Many permanent campers. Poor night lighting. I was concerned about security as entrance is wide open.
I will not stay here again.
Site was actually pretty level. Power was good.
Payment drop box was missing pricing info and envelopes. I had to call the owner to find out the price. - racer0624

Other's have pretty much summed up this park. Nothing fancy, very nice owner. 30 and 50 amp sites, costs depends on which amp you need. We had a large pull through site, and we were only here for the night. Some interstate noise, but not terrible, and I am a very light sleeper. Clean and was freshly mowed when we arrived. A little rough at the entrance, go slow. Yes we would stay here as an over night stop again. - Vicki K

This is a super clean rv park with level concrete pads. There are no trees so satellite reception is excellent. There are no shower facilities, but there are two different restrooms that are only open from 8:00 to 5:00. I would definitely stay here again when coming to First Monday Trade Days in Canton as Canton is only 35 minutes away. - golfkitty

The daily rate reflects the monthly rate of $350. All sites are level concrete pads with W/E/S. WIFI worked fairyly well. Clear view of the southern sky for Direct TV reception. Local TV stations came in very well. Cellphone reception was 4G with Verizon. Each site gets a trashcan which is collected every morning thru the week. Playground, tennis courts soccer fields. There are a total of over 200 sites. Within walking distance of a grocery store. Laundry within a few blocks. Surprisingly very few rigs stay during the week. Some weekends there will be a RV rally but they all leave on Sunday or Monday. We were the only rig in the whole park most of the time. We decided to winter here due to numerous family in the area. The only downside is no bath/shower house in campground. We have enjoyed our stay here. Campground kept very neat and clean. A lot of locals use the park for excercise, children sports practice and numerous functions in the civic center. - TexasRVer

Very nice park, and well maintained. Actually a city park/RV campground. Nicest in the area. Well lit at night. No traffic at night (restricted). We will stay here again when in this area. - grandlake1

The sites were level and the hook ups were centrally located. However ours did not have a sewer cap so we had to use boards to ensure the hose stayed into the pipe. The restrooms could have been cleaner. We called for reservation and the person said to come along, pick a site and they would catch up with us, we never did see anyone, so just left the money in the box the next day. - Al and Anne-Marie

The park was not what I was expecting. I would not go there again. We only stayed two nights. There was no cable or Internet provided. There were no amenities available. There were more people that lived there than RVers. - stormgirl

Have stayed here before. The manager, has always treated us like family. Live in's but they take care of their sites. Will stay again when in the area. Our site was long enough to accommodate our motorhome and car hauler. - ob's place

Made reservations prior and arrived Sunday. Office was closed and no envelope for us. The camp host did not know we were arriving. A poor start but found the park satisfactory.
A cleaning lady made us feel welcome, contacted the park host, and overall did a great job helping us.
Park was clean, sites have concrete pads, grass between sites. All utilities worked well.
We found a constant noise from a motor running on the property close by. Not extremely loud but consistent.
Overall a good place for an overnight. - RDRV

Nice park, large level gravel pull-throughs. Individual bath/showers, very clean. Note that they no longer except PPA. Slightly disappointed because it was one of the reasons I chose the park. - SnowBird 5050

We arrived on a rainy, stormy evening and were greeted with a warm welcome from the office staff. We were given plenty of information on local places of interest. Our site was a level concrete pad that was much appreciated during the huge downpour. The amenities were absolutely first class and we really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were super friendly and we take away some lovely memories of a great night of music. - KenandCathy
