14 RV Parks near Jefferson, Texas

This is a beautiful park with lots of trees, with open space below. The sites are spaced fairly close together, but no problem with interference with the slides. The only problem we had were May Flies which work their way around your screens. We had at least a hundred inside before we closed our windows and used the air conditioner. It would be a great park in the fall. Would definitely stay here again. - estegw

Nice campground with old pine trees. Very nice roads, however please make sure to grab a map of the campground if this is your first time! The site numbers within the 2 RV loops are not marked on the road and sites are spread among 2 RV loops. We stayed in loop2 and the road to get to our site 222 looked like a driveway, so we missed it the first time. A couple of wooden signs would help. Other than that, it is quiet and well taken care of. - chantalcnrobw

Rate reflects Senior Pass. Very pretty park on shore of Lake O The Pines. Part of a complex of several COE parks. Gate attendants are very nice, helpful and knowledgeable about both the park and area. We were in Area 2 which is nice, sites away from the water are more spacious. Power voltage was very high and we had problems with shut offs. Our EMS showed up to 130 volts at times. The park staff came and check the line and felt the problem was from the local electric company.
We ended up moving to the other area, Area 1 which is newer and had steady 124v power. Water pressure was about 65PSI. Sites in this loops are level and spacious: all with very nice lake views. Only issue with Area 1 is that is it right next to their "group camp" and we were unfortunate enough to have a wedding taking place the weekend we were here. So loud music and traffic into the early hours. We might stay here again, but would ensure nothing is happening at that group camp area. - Fixn2gocamp

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

I was a little taken aback by the $32 cost - I'm used to low twenties for COE sites - but I did wind up in a lakefront site, which are the most expensive. I arrived on a Tuesday in early Nov without a reservation and was extremely surprised to find I was somewhat lucky to get in without a reservation. It's a beautiful campground and the smell of the trees is amazing. The very friendly hostess that checked me in at the gate did a drive-by shortly thereafter to make sure everything was good with my site. The end loop just past our site (E117) we used to turn around when leaving was pretty tight with our 31' travel trailer due to a tree branch. We had a good Verizon signal here. - Brad & Angela

What a beautiful lake! We stayed at site E120 which is a pull-through and is like a grassy knoll island. I camped here as a kid and had fond memories but was somewhat disappointed. We pulled in and hooked up after dark on Friday. When we woke on Saturday I could not wait to open the door and see the lake but when I did all I could see was trucks, boats and boat trailers parked on our site surrounding our camper! Also we had one dead tree and one live tree. Thank god it was cloudy all weekend! Once we got past that the lake took over and we were in heaven! Then it was on to the showers for a clean up! The restrooms were somewhat clean and the hot water was hot the only issue was the men's shower just slowly dribbled but the women's was perfect! A word of caution the electrical hook ups were in disrepair and when I unplugged my plug was burnt but that is my fault as I did not have a surge protector. - MIKEMELISSA426

We stayed here for 1 night heading to our destination and then 3 nights on the way home because we love this area. This is, in our opinion, the best of the 4 COE campgrounds on Lake of the Pines. We had a full hookup site right on the tip of the point with excellent views of the lake. The sites are arranged so that you have clear views out the sides even though neighbors aren't too far away. - PegL

Secluded park less than a mile outside of Jefferson, Texas. Some sites are right on the Big Cypress Bayou. There is lots of room between each of the camp sites. The wifi is excellent. There is a railroad and alligator farm on the premises. I wake up and see as many as 20 to 25 deer each morning. - JayPat1998

Very nice stay. Nice views of the the lake. Nice concrete pads. Easy to set up. Camp sites are aren't marked the best. We had to hunt a little but no big deal.We will stay there again. - melcrena

This is a COE park on Lake 'O' the Pines. We have stayed here several times before in our TT. The restrooms and showers are just adequate. Excellent access to the lake and park area. - Crappie1

We stayed for 6 days, coming in on a Saturday and leaving on Friday. We were in E405 a reserved site, back in. Water, electric with a dump station on the way out. Max 14 night stay, this is a Lake O' the Pines campground. Very friendly staff at the gate, fairly busy during weekends but peaceful and quiet during the week. Apparently lots of improvements made after the recent floods. There are first come RV and tent sites in 1, 2 and 3 and a day use area with picnic tables and swimming areas.
Good lake to get on the water and enjoy. Swimming and fishing. Most folks well behaved. What we missed was a fish cleaning station. Wonderful little break. Would return. Also try Brushy Creek campground sometime. - TheWetzels

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

We camped in a 35' 5th wheel. The sites with sewer, electric, and power were temporarily closed due to construction. Very nice park and typical of why we love Texas state parks. Only downsides were very limited ATT service and some road noise from Hwy 43. We were parked in the Armadillo Run Camping area. Other areas probably wouldn't be as noisy. Park roads to and from the camping areas are narrow and hilly but we had no trouble getting our camper in place. Many of the camp sites were limited on RV length (ours barely fit) and some had slope. However, we'll be back. And, Hwy 43 is a wonderful alternative to Hwy 59 when travelling between Texarkana and Marshall. - Motorcyclekelly

This place is a real gem. Quiet and dark at night, almost spooky. The lake is beautiful. We only stayed 2 nights, but I'd go back again for sure. The shower house was torn down, and they are building a new one, so we showered in the camper. Hiking trails were ok. - Bob806

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 was a gravel parking lot with hookups. Great for overnight if you are traveling instead of a Wal mart. The city park is by the lot and is well kept. We have stayed here twice. The only problem we had was we needed to pay in town which was several blocks away and we don't unhook. - Lesterosu

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

I don't know HOW this place got a score of 8/4 stars. We were shocked when we pulled into this open gravel parking lot. The entire lot is sloped, so you won't find a level site. Not a single tree to shade you. No fire ring, picnic table or patio. They charge $3 extra if you pay with a credit card; I paid cash. Good thing we only needed a place to sleep for the night. - Bobalou

Perfect for an overnight stop. Pull thru handled 40 ft Motorhome pulling tow vehicle with no problem. All utilities worked great, including 50 amp service. All gravel sites, not perfectly level but not bad and jacks leveled us with no problem. Lady in the office was very friendly. Nothing fancy, but served our needs and was clean. - SD_EWALD
