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

Our site was a back in overlooking the lake. Very level. However, on Friday when we returned to our campsite the neighbors had arrived with boats, multiply cars and pitched three tents (paperwork stated no tents in this area), one right next to our driveway and two directly behind our trailer. So now instead of looking at the lake all we saw were tents. No park host or ranger ever drove through. Trucks, trailers, etc were parked on the grass across from their site down along a grass area . Week days very nice and relaxing, weekend gets very crazy. Oh and we opened our door to go into town and the neighbor's young son decided to pee at my steps. - Stujan

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 usually don't drive through and leave a review, but I wanted to give an updated, alternative review for this park. The park is about 1.5 miles outside of Jefferson. When we arrived and headed down the road leading to the camping area, the first thing we noted were several warning signs, some about not stealing as there are hidden cameras. The other signs were various warnings about Off Road Vehicles and disclaimers. All of the signs made us think that theft might be a problem. There is no staff at the park. You are supposed to deposit your money in a box. We saw only one other person in our 15 minutes or so and am not sure what he was doing - he did not appear to be camping. There were only about 4 camping units, with all but one looking either in storage or abandoned. We would not have been comfortable camping there and certainly would not have left our RV there alone. Perhaps the park has a different feel when there are special events in Jefferson, but it did not have an acceptable feel for us, so we moved on. - TheJim

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

This "RV Park" is actually 10 hook-ups next to an ice vending plant. Other than the hook-ups there are no amenities, such as restrooms or showers. It is on a very busy corner with truck traffic and there is lots of day-time traffic for folks coming to buy ice. There is also a very active train track not far away. For check-in there is a number posted that you call and the friendly owner comes out and takes your payment. There are a couple of sites with a little shade; otherwise, it is sunny. When we camped there was only one other RV that looked fairly long-term. If all spaces were occupied, they would be very close together. Also, if all spaces were occupied, it would be back-in only. Although it was challenging, we were able to get satellite for TV with a portable dish. Verizon data signal was strong. The rate if very high for what you get and there are no discounts. The only redeeming factor is that it is very close to everything in Jefferson. We would not stay again. - TheJim

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

This is a delightful little park. Very clean from the grounds to the bathhouse. New owners are really working hard to make it this way. And they are very friendly. Very quiet. Each site has a BBQ furnished. Plenty of OTA TV. There is a restaurant just across the road, otherwise, pack everything you need as the closest town, Marshall, is about a 25 minute drive. We'll stop again. - donpeterson

The owners purchased this park almost a year ago, and there have been massive improvements to the part. The sites are gravel, but they are level. Each site has its own table with umbrella, grill, and trash, they provide wood for a campfire and have planted trees for each site to have trees (those trees haven't matured yet!). Basically, you can tell that these folks care and treat each customer as if it were a member of their family and you can't ask better than that. When we arrived we had some problems with our water heater, and the owner came over to help and when he couldn't help, he recommended a company that could help. They were interested in us having a good stay at the park. While Caddo Lake State Park is undergoing renovations (full hookups aren't open until next year - 2019, and the park closing in October for renovations), this is a great choice. It's close (within a very short walk) from the Big Cypress Bayou, and the RV park has a dock where you can dock your boat. It's not large, so you can't keep it there, but a nice area to look out over the bayou and access the park from the bayou. The bathrooms are clean and each shower/bathroom has it's own heater and AC and even reading material for the porcelain throne! The laundry is clean but didn't use the machines. It's the attention to detail that gives this place the great rating. - ClaireOKC

This was our first trip to Pine Island CG in Karnack. It has new owners and they have a real nice facility. All sites are pull through. Nice gravel pads and roads. 30 and 50 amp power at most sites. Has BarBQ grills and fire pits at all sites. Real nice bath house with washers & dryers as well. Very friendly and informative about the area. Will definitely return this place is awesome. - Robinsor

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
