Easy access from Hwy. 281, about 6 miles from Jacksboro. Gravel roads and sites, with large-medium size gravel. Sites are fairly long, but close together. Grass in between sites, and nice grassy areas to walk dogs. Pretty lake with trail across the dam. Unfortunately, some park residents apparently don't comply with the rules to keep your pet leashed and pick up after them. We enjoyed the exotic animals (deer, etc.) roaming the park in the evenings when they're fed. We stayed here because the State Park was full, and would do so again. We camped at Hidden Lake Safari Ranch and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Richardson, in Jacksboro, gives tours at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. weekdays. The Old Fort buildings are open weekends for self-guided tours. Interesting bit of history.

This is a very unusual Park, as it is also a 20 acre wildlife sanctuary with deer, and a donkey, ambling around the park - not sure if ticks are a problem in this area. The animals are accustomed to people, but I don't know if they want you to feed them. There were ant hills near our trailer, but we only stayed one day so they didn't bother us. Watch out for the mosquitoes. There are other wildlife, such as antelope that are behind an eight foot fence and you can pay an extra discounted fee for a safari tour if you are staying there. As the name implies there is a lake on the property, and you are allowed to fish free of charge when a guest. The sites were relatively level, all back in. Pedestals are at the rear of sites. The access to the park is a gravel road from the highway, less than a mile, but quite dusty. There is a laundry room with an advertised "full bathroom", but the door was locked on both of our attempts. Manager lives in the house at the entry to the park, but not available 24/7. We had considered staying at another nearby campground, and when we mentioned this and then ask for their rate we were told $20. The posted rate is $35 a day - I think she just gave us a price match for the other park. Park is very relaxed concept; no site numbers, no park map, gate is open 24/7. We camped at Hidden Lake Safari Ranch and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hidden Lake Safari and RV Park, owner at Hidden Lake Safari Ranch and RV Park responded to this review

Yes, we do have animals that roam the park. Many of our guests have come to adore them. The donkey is very friendly as long as you don't try to ride him(prohibited). We encourage people to feed them, as long as it's not deer corn. The bathroom is locked due to continued damage. It is unlocked upon request. If you are to stay for a few days, a key can be signed out. I am the manager and I do live on the park. The office is not open 24/7. I can be reached 24/7, but after hours for hopefully emergencies only. I gave you the discounted price due to the fact you were not staying a whole day, as I told you. We are the only campground in town, besides the state park. The other parks in towns close to us are not competition but our friends. Please feel free to stay with them if you come through this area.

Someone recommended this RV park to us and it was our very first RV experience in 2015. I think it was the middle of summer. We were very disappointed in the fact that the lake was completely dried up. My husband was looking forward to fishing and he was not able to. This is Texas and there are years when there is very little rain, so that accounts for the fact the lake was dry. But fishing is one thing we like to look for when looking for a RV site. The wild animals were amusing and fun to watch. Our site was shaded and that was nice. Will probably not ever return to it. There is nothing to do there. I'm thinking it had a pool, but not sure now. We camped at Hidden Lake Safari Ranch and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Thank you for your review.
As of this response it is July 16th, 2017 our lake is FULL!! And the fish are jumpin'!
I'm sorry that your experience back in 2015 was not all that it could have been. But as you discovered we had a pretty bad drought going on for the entire region. However, things have turned around now, and we're getting that much needed rain. If you ever happen back this way, we hope you will consider us again. We'd love to have you here.

The price of this campground is overboard just because some deer walk around the camp sites. It is off the main road but there is still a lot of road noise from the big trucks. Had electric, water, and sewer but no TV. You will need to use satellite because there no cable or over the air signals. For this price you would think there would be something. We camped at Hidden Lake Safari Ranch and RV Park in a Motorhome.
