Buckhorn Creek is a COE campground on Lake 'O The Pines. Our GPS didn't want to find it. We ended up using the GPS to get to Jefferson, then following the directions on our reservation confirmation to get the rest of the way. Our campsite was on the lakefront and had a fantastic view. Most people were there for the fishing, and had brought boats. The sites were large, and had great lake views. Not all the sites were long enough to park both an RV and a boat, so a number of the sites were packed with vehicles everywhere, including people across from us who had what looked to be a large white catering tent set up on their site. The catering tent had bright lights on all night. This was actually the most annoying thing there. Other than the fishing, there really wasn't a lot to do there. Being a COE campground, there wasn't any wifi. The cell service was marginal. We could do email and texting, but couldn't stream video. We camped at Buckhorn Creek COE in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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. We camped at Buckhorn Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

What a beautiful park! We got a site that looked right onto the lake, one row back, which was perfect. Each site was very large with lots of space in between sites. Lots of trees for shade too. The sunsets were spectacular! It was a great location to visit Caddo Lake and other areas in the Piney Woods of Texas. We didn't want to leave. We camped at Buckhorn Creek COE in a Motorhome.

Don't let the name fool you, Buckhorn Creek Park is right on Lake O' the Pines, a rather vast body of water. There may have been a creek on the property, but the Lake is the view you see from all over this great Corps of Engineer's park. The grounds are manicured and clean. All of the sites and roads are asphalt and accommodate big rigs easily. Sites are extra-long and equipped with a concrete patio framed with gravel and a fire pit. E121 is fairly level. Utilities are well maintained and conveniently located on the site. This park offers 30/50 amp and water; no full-hook ups, but the park has a double-sided dump station. Other amenities are a boat ramp, playground, picnic area, hiking trails, swim beach, fishing dock, and group pavilions. As is the case at many parks located on lakes, it was a bit buggy; but you can't beat the view and easy water access. The park hosts were friendly and helpful, even after a big storm went through the park and knocked out all of the electricity. Not to worry, crews were on top of the problem and power was restored within 2 hours. We connected to our satellite and had both Verizon and AT&T coverage. We were only able to stay one night this time, but would definitely come back and stay again. We camped at Buckhorn Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice ACE park sitting on Lake O The Pines. Sites are fairly spacious if you stay away from the water sites otherwise they are a little close. They have a couple of the "double up" party sites. Electric is steady, water pressure good. They have a tent area and a boat launch. There is a first-come-first-serve area away from the water, but it seems to be inhabited by long termers. Someone told us the 3 campers in there were workers, but they seemed to have other jobs and we never saw them working in the park. Gate attendants were knowedgable and friendly. Watch the trees however, they are not well maintained and we saw several large limbs come down during and after a storm. You pay a few dollars extra a night if your site has a tent pad. We might stay here again if in the area. We camped at Buckhorn Creek COE in a Motorhome.

Jefferson is a nice little town, with junk/antique stores and a couple of nice restaurants. Try the Jefferson general store for fun, lots to see, its fun. Great little ice cream counter in City Drug Store.

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. We camped at Buckhorn Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

Love this park. Spacious sites. Quiet. No problems at all. Beware of rising water. Some sites can be under water that are close to the lake. Park is well maintained. Roads are great and cause no issues. Lights out and people are relatively quiet. We camped at Buckhorn Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

Historic Jefferson is just 9 miles away. Take in the museum to get a feel for the history of the town. Walk down to the park near the bayou turn around. If you like antiques, you would be in heaven in this town.

Nice level sight, long enough for our coach and toad. Very friend woman working in the office, we had to leave a day earlier than we paid for, she tried to give us our money back but we refused it. Roads were wide and easy to navigate. The roads to the park were also very good. We would stay here again if we were in the area. And the nearby town of Jefferson is worth a visit.
