12 Parks near Jefferson, Texas
May 2016 - $20.00
Holiday weekend and the campground has a few spaces. I had reserved a full hookup months in advance and I'm glad I did - there were none available. There is a daily park fee of $3 added so daily total is $23 which is a very good full hook up price. Boating and fishing are popular activities in the park with easy access provided to Caddo Lake. Definitely a destination park for future trips. - obxblond

We camped at Caddo Lake State Park near Karnack, Texas in February 2016. We were in site 22 in the full hookup Woodpecker Loop. $20/night for water, 50/30/20A electric and sewer. All eight sites in this loop are pull throughs. The Armadillo Run loop are water and electric back in sites. Camping areas in beautiful pine forest. The park is on Big Cypress Bayou with boat ramps and canoes for rent. Good hiking trails. Jefferson, TX is 12 miles away with groceries and shopping. I highly recommend this park. - drfife

Staying here a few days while heading South for the Winter. Nice park and nice trails.
Get the Texas Pass ($70) if you plan on using other Texas State Parks as you save the entrance fees. $3 to $5 per person per day.
Make sure you rent or bring a canoe as the river and pond are great for spending a few hours. Rental ($20 for 3 hours) - magic

My wife, two grandchildren, and I stayed two nights in this park. We made reservations but the shaded sites were already taken. We used a pull through space. With our fifth wheel we had plenty of room to maneuver. We arrived about 9 PM and it was very dark. The site had a light on it but the owner was very helpful in having available extra lights to help setup. The area of the park was fantastic being able to swim and boat in the river across the street from the park. We did not see any playground equipment in the park but it was not needed anyway because of the water activities available. We will definitely make another visit here. - RVman63

This park is just a grass field with two rows of hookups. Has some 50 amp sites. There is no gravel, even on the roads, and it would be very easy to get stuck if it were to rain a lot. Our rig is a little over 13 feet tall and we hit several tree branches on the way in. There was no one in the office when we arrived so I called the number in the Passport America Guide and left a message on the answering machine. When the owner came to collect in the evening he was less than friendly. He said the rate was $18 and I replied that I had Passport America. It was obvious from his reaction that he was not happy that he had to give me a discount. He said the price was $12 then. I told him the guide said it was $9 and he said there was an additional charge if you had more than one A/C and that if I didn't like it I could go elsewhere. Of course, I was already set up and settled in so I was not about to argue for $3. We will not be back. It was worth $10-$12 for a place to park, but it is way off the beaten path and it needs a lot more development and attention before it will be much of anything. My conversation with the owner convinced me that no more money will be spent on the place until he has more money coming in to pay the expenses. Sounds like a Catch-22. - Rif

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

Roads are deplorable (very very rough). No entrance or exit sign, but owner/worker came up in golf cart fussing we had come in the exit! Lots of street noise from major highway and could hear trains in the near distance but not next to park. The wifi was excellent. - Gloria S.

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

We were just there for an overnight but it was more than adequate. The roads entering were paved and good. The sites were paved and level. Many had lake view but not lakeside. We were lucky enough to have a red-bellied woodpecker nesting in a tree beside us. Sites are long and narrow and were open to other sites, but the space was OK. - Lula1943

The restrooms were not touched the entire weekend we were there. C301 was a level site but if you backed only as far as you could to use the stabilizers, the door and awning opened up to dirt with the picnic table in a unmovable position 15 feet away. - BaldGuy

Second stay in 3 years. We stayed in the group site this time and last time too. Wonderful quiet location. Group sites are not for big rigs over say, 32'. Excellent lake views. Only issues we have is that the group shower house showers have a < 3 minute hot water supply so they are basically useless unless you are just rinsing off, making a 150 yard+ walk to the next shower house, (which is basically like new). Other issue is an open gate overnight so anyone can come and go at will - bobojay

We stayed in the new area, non reserve, and loved it. The pads were very large with room for the picnic table and large enough for our motorcycles and trailer. The only drawback to the lake sites, is the pads are built up, so the incline is not a gentle slope getting down to the campfire ring and water. The restrooms had a lot of bugs in them in the morning from the street lights, but otherwise were clean. The Camp hosts were very friendly and helpful. There are very clean and well kept grounds. - chicosmom

Beautiful park: has great swimming (not too cold or too warm), and a beautiful view with several deer roaming around. Only a few pull-through sites. Has friendly staff. Army Corps owned and run (open to civilians, of course). Only negative was the lack of cell service through most of the park and no WiFi. Otherwise we loved it. - TheDubs

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

This is a pretty typical COE park with nice-sized sites. My shower experience in the ladies' restroom was fine, i.e., good water pressure and temperature of the shower. However, my husband's experience in the men's room was terrible. The shower head was missing so the water output was a stream straight down. And with only one shower stall in each restroom, that made the experience pretty tough. We would most likely stay here again if in the area but shower in our rig. - golfkitty

Unfortunately, due to the drought in the area the "grassy areas" are tinder dry and burning ban in effect. Our site is fantastic, looking out at the sunset over the lake. Sites are on a bluff perhaps 30 ft above the lake level. Nice paved parking with concrete patio with aluminum picnic table, fire ring, and lantern post. - easydoesit

My experience here was a good one. The campground is on a beautiful lake and the grounds and facilities are kept very clean. Additionally, the attendants were pleasant and helpful. The sites can be a bit closer and exposed than I usually prefer, but it is the off season and there were very few campers. - jdtex

Very nice typical COE park with level paved sites. Many sites are on the water of Lake O the Pines. No sewers but dump station on exit road. The extremely surly unaccommodating park camp host is the only reason for not rating this park higher. He should find another occupation where he is not dealing with the public. The posted park hours are closed 10pm to 6am BUT the exit is not open until 9am! - consort

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

Full hookups and convenient to interstate. The park is a work in progress. The main concern I'd have for some campers is that not all sites look level, which would only be an issue if the park was full and you had to use some of the less level sites. We were able to get level in site 31 without trouble. If you use Passport America discount, it is certainly a bargain. This was an overnight stop for us, not a destination. - Breeze On

I concur with previous reviews, the sites are very unlevel. We were surprised that there were so many long term renters at this park. We were told that they are oil/gas/pipeline service workers. Our neighbors all left between 5:45 and 6:15 AM. We were assigned the remaining spot near the office because the park's Wi-Fi system was being repaired. We could receive the office's Wi-Fi, which was surprising fast: 12-17 Mbps downloads and 3-6 Mbps upload. The park is far enough off of Rt 59 that the road noise did not bother me. - BobatRetama

Traveling on SR59 Linden city park is about 40 miles south of Texarkana. This is a municipal owned RV park. We have a 45' coach & no problems navigating the park. Most sites are pull-thrus, but there are back-in sites also. Each site has 50/30/20 amp electric, city water (tasted good too), and sewer. The sign says 1 night only, but we stayed 2 nites to explore the area. Very small town w/ 1 or 2 restaurants & a Dairy Queen. We dined at Uncle Juan's Mexican Restaurant and had a great dinner. RV Park is across the street from an elementary school, but no children walked thru the park. A city owned recreation park with swings is nearby. Behind the restrooms is a nice concrete walking trail. The restrooms were very clean & did have showers. The surface of the RV park was broken asphalt, but driveable with no problems. Electric voltage was excellent as a new power transformer is adjacent to the main breakers. No fire rings or picnic tables, but for $15.00 nite, a good bargain! We would definitely camp here again. - TravelnSteve

We stumbled across this park using the GoodSam Trip Planner. Wanting to avoid Dallas in our trip back down to South Central Texas, we opted to travel on Hwy 59. We normally would stay in a Wal-mart parking lot, but the temps caused us to look for an inexpensive option that would give us AC for the night. This was perfect for that purpose.
We were greeted by the lady who wrote the grant for the park. The area for the RVs is basically a large gravel parking lot with utilities available for each site. Only a couple of spots have trees.
The park include nicely paved walk ways with exercise stations. The restrooms and showers were clean enough.
For us, this would not be a destination spot, but this was a great place to set up for the night. - User3772

Gravel with some asphalt. Rather like a parking lot. 22 sites. 10 pull thru's. Full hookup. Self registration. - fander
