13 Parks near Karnack, Texas
Jul 2010 - $20.00
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

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

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

For an overnight, this was fine. Convenient to the interstate. Restrooms were scrupulously clean, the site level and wi-fi worked well. - OmakMary

We stayed here for 5 wks to care for a sick family member who lives nearby. The monthly rate is $275 with a $50 electric deposit which may be partially refunded depending on meter reading. We paid $140 for an extra week. The campground is close to Interstate 20 so you can hear traffic, but it is easy on and off for travel. We stayed here during heavy rain and flooding, our site in the back (#23)had puddles, but drained well. The water pressure was good. There is a fitness room, book exchange, propane services, no pool and not much of a campground store. The campground is not very close to any grocery stores, but there are several fast food restaurants and a catfish restaurant nearby. There is a fair number of longterm campers at this campground; all seemed friendly and helpful as well as the managers and owners. My only complaint is some of the long term campers let their dogs run loose, especially at night, so there is barking when you try to sleep and dog poop that you have to be careful not to step in! Would probably stay here again. - mohocamper

This campground was a great find for us. Easy on & off I-20. Utilities all worked fine. We had a nice easy pull-through in the front. It had a little road noise but it was warm and had the AC on so it was not a problem. The price was great for what we got. - usa rv12344848

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

The sites are long, concrete pull-throughs, but are extremely unlevel. We could not level our coach at all, even with wood under the tires. Since we were only there for one night, we managed. The utilities worked fine, and the sky was clear for satellite. There is a Pizza Hut carry out place right across the street, so that was convenient for dinner. Probably would not return to this campground. - henny38

We were here for just 1 night but it was OK for that. Fairly large park with long pull through sites that are well spaced between the sites. Water pressure was good and so was voltage. Site was level gravel. Close to shopping and plenty of places to eat. When we were here there were plenty of empty sites. When we checked in the lady at the office gave us 3 rows of empty to pick from and set up. She didn’t even tell us to tell her which site we picked later. Rate was with Good Sam discount. We might stay here again if in the area. - zrxh14

This park is good for an overnight stay to use the facilities. Water , dump, electric all good but as others stated, it is noisy. The wifi they claim to have does not work. I had to take my iPad to the office to get it to get any signal and by the time I got back to the RV (I had the first spot right next to the office) the signal was gone. They were just far enough out of town that TV signal was hard to get on antenna. I would stay here again ONLY if I had to. - GrumpyJoe

Stayed a week as we have family living in the area. This campground is next to a truck stop and motel. It is not a big campground but the sites are level, paved, have cable tv, are well maintained and have picnic tables. The sites drained well during a rainstorm. This is not really a family campground as there is no pool, camp store, or game room, but it was quiet and we found folks to be friendly. There are a fair number of longterm residents here that really like living at this campground versus others in th area. It is pet friendly as there is a pet walk and there is a small laundry room. The wifi was not working during our stay and you have to pay a small fee anyway. There is a restaurant and store within walking distance, at the truck stop. You can hear highway traffic and a train at times, but we did not find this bothersome. We found this campground to be much better than the one nearby in Waskom, TX. - mohocamper

Pull throughs for those just passing through. Pretty decent back ins for those staying longer. Very pleasant office help. Very near big TA truck stop with decent restaurant. Campground looks to be well kept. Good inner roads. Close to Shreveport casinos if you care to make a donation. - SeeTheUSA

Not sure what has happened to this park, but it has gone down hill like an avalanche! The electrical connections are extremely worn, and the site is in very bad condition. They have allowed RV's to park in the OPEN field in front of the park with blue tarps covering them. Above ground electrical and sewer lines ran to the sites. The park itself is in terrible condition. They have lost the Good Sam endorsement due to the condition of this park. By far one of the largest failures since we have began evaluating RV Parks over 11 years ago. When I approached the staff regarding the issues, they told me they could not care less. The manager stated very clearly that they do not want overnight RVer's. They are a long term park only! - rvreporterontheroad

This park is on our list to NEVER Return to! We failed to get reservations up the road and were forced to stay here, too tired to press on. The electrical, the water hook ups and the general condition of this place is horrible! The ironic thing is this place is owned and operated by a large RV dealership that is located right next to it. It is beyond me how the owner can pass by this place everyday, expecting to sell high and low end RVs, and represent his company with a dump like this. This is not a RV park, it is a mobile home park for welders with very loud trucks. They should be ashamed! - marcwtomas

I was very disappointed. The last time we stayed in Shreveport this place was wonderful. We stayed at a park three miles east of here, unfortunately they were full to capacity so we stayed here: a BIG mistake! The young girl (new manager) was completely lost: she had no idea what we were referring to when we needed 50 amp, etc. The first site we went to: the electric plug was hanging out of the box. The manager said to just plug it in and let it hang there. The site next to it: the plug appeared to be burnt on the left receptacle. I explained to her what that can do to our system. By this time it was getting late so we opted for the 30 amp and adapter. About 10:30 PM the power went out on the entire row, it was around 85 to 90 degrees out. We started our generator, pulled in the slides and headed out for Texas. Now we understand that everyone has to start somewhere on a job. But you should never put someone in a position that is so green they have no idea what they are doing. This place is not an RV Park, it's a long term housing area for local workers. - macpackman

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
