2 Parks near Karnack, 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
