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

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

The campground was nice. The pond was lovely, very quiet and secluded. However, the owners have no business running an RV park as they tend to make up rules as they go and they tried to stick us with a "late charge" that was no where in the rules. - toddmcc

I stayed for 2 months in one of the park cabins and it was absolutely wonderful! The cabin was very clean, well stocked and my front porch faced the private lake which was just gorgeous and peaceful. There was a on-site laundry and you can fish right out the front door just about. The owners were also very accommodating and attentive and a pleasure to interact with. This place is a diamond find!!! - Spring Hill Fresh

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

The park owners have put a lot of hard work into this nice adult RV campground. There's fishing in the private lake, and camping under the stars. It's just far enough away from the hub-bub of city living, but close enough to shopping and all the entertainment of Tyler and Lindale. The park is kept clean and tidy, and the park manager is there to answer any questions! We stayed in a 40" RV, from October to March. Would come and stay again, if we should be passing through! Thank you for making our stay and enjoyable one!! - mbhb55

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

Stopped at Tyler State Park in Tyler, TX, for an overnight after a long, stressful driving day. We prefer actual parks to RV "parks" that are more expensive and are just parking lots next to noisy roadways. Our price included the $6 per person entrance fee, which kind of cheeses me to pay on top of the camping fee, but we've encountered this in many state parks. We didn't have the opportunity to explore the park, but our next-site neighbor is a frequent flyer there and had great things to say about it. The setting was beautiful, full mature trees and lots of vegetation. I grew up camping in a park that looked almost just like this, so I loved this place. We had no problem with our 30-amp & water hookups. No problem backing in to our site with a 32-foot class C. There were several pull-through sites in our section. Would love to return and spend some time actually camping there, rather than a stopover. - talwms

Beautiful East TX park. We stayed in the Lakeview area, which I recommend. The pretty park is kept up nicely & isn't in the middle of a bunch of meth labs. We found it spotless, including the bathrooms. We have a 25' motorhome and backed into our site, but there are pull-throughs. The campsites are spacious with plenty of area around them should you want to set up a tent. We set up 2 ENO Hammocks, left our bikes out, had a lantern pole, picnic table and fire ring with a grill grate. Firewood can be purchased via the honor system by the camp host's site. We had full hookups and concrete pad, which required leveling blocks. Our site was shaded and on the water. Because of the tall trees, satellite didn't work. No biggie. I didn't pay attention to whether or not there were spots with a clear view to the sky. You can rent boats & fishing equipment. There is a swimming area. If you enjoy biking, birding, hiking or geocaching, there are plenty of options/trails. We took a nice hike around the perimeter of the lake...maybe a couple of miles? The camp store is well appointed. The only issue we ran into were the thieving raccoons who have a taste for prime rib-eye. One of the fearless little buggers managed to steal half of a steak right off the grill when we walked a few feet away! (so much for leftovers!). Our neighbors, who frequent this park, say they are a big problem at this park, so keep your coolers and everything food related inside your car/camper! Sites at TX State Parks are first come first served, although you can reserve a "space" beforehand. The ranger said starting Dec 2017, you will be able to book "site specific" spots online. Day use fee is $3/day per person. We got a TX State Park pass for $40, which negates the day use fee and if you stay more than one night, you get half off the 2nd night. Well worth it if you plan on camping/using TX state parks more than a couple times. Book early; this is a popular park, close to Dallas & fills up during the season. - Mary_O

We stayed 3 nights in the Lakeside camping loop L71 a premium site with full hookups . Nice site with a good view of the lake. This loop is a little tight for maneuvering 40' motorhomes with a toad, but can be done. Sites at our end of the loop were a little closer than we like but much better than most parks. The State Park is only about 2 miles from I20, so is a good place to spend the night if you are passing through. In addition to the nightly rate of $25 there is a $5 per entrance fee unless you have a Texas State Park pass. The campsites can be a little muddy if it is raining and it did rain 2 out of our 3 night stay. - Ruffin It

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

This is a nicely wooded park for a get away or big lots for a home. Rates are reasonable with a nice family atmosphere. Pets are allowed so we were able to bring our pets and they loved it. Need to stop by when you are in the area. We will go back. - D44-rock

The park is located near interstate 20 which made it convenient to Canton's First Monday Trade Day (20miles). The circle drive for overnighters was actually pretty easy for our 39ft fifth wheel. Very easy to pull into our slot and hook up. Owner was very friendly and helpful. We would stay here any time we are in the area. Inexpensive, kept neat and clean, friendly. convenient to area attractions. - TheWeeks

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

We were in Mineola for RV maintenance. The dealership told us about the Civic Center. It's a Civic center with sports fields and they added concrete RV pads. Therefore not a RV park but great grounds and perfect layout. There are bathrooms open during the day, however closed in the evening and no shower facilities. There are full hook ups for 30 & 50 amp. We stayed on the outside ring near soccer field, 50 amp. The site was back in over a short curb. No trees, so we were able to get SAT TV. We also were able to get WIFI which was ok. Lots of green areas to walk dogs. Best to come off of 69, to Lilly St. (road right next to McDonalds), then take left at end of Lilly, Civic Center will be on right. GPS takes you down back roads that are wide enough however low hanging trees. We stayed one night and left before the soccer games started. - KKColorado

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
