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

Caddo Lake State Park is in East Texas near the Louisiana border. It was built by the CCC in 1934.
The park has eight full hookup 50A RV sites and 18 water and 30A sites. The sites are large and private. Cabins and screen shelters are available.
The bayou is lined with cypress trees with heavy Spanish moss. The pond is great for paddling. Bring your own or rent a canoe.
The camping areas are in dense pine woods. Nice hiking trails.
We were in site 13 (screen shelter site with 30A) for one night (TPWD reservation error) then two nights in site 25 (50A full hookups). We have been here several times and will return. - drfife

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

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

Campsite is a sloped, gravel lot divided into forty serviced sites. There are no trees in the camping area. There is a small children's playground, a dog walk, and a pond adjacent. The washroom and laundry building is tidy and clean. - Gord0

This "park" is not like its website's glowing description. It is actually a sloping stone and gravel parking lot in front of a small, fenced in farm pond. There are a few permanent residents, the majority of whom appear to be transient workers. The individual spaces are roomy and none of them are level due to the generally sloping grade of the land and lack of any attempt at terracing to provide level individual spaces. We tried spaces 3 and 33 and both were off side-to-side by about 6 inches. The owner told us he had plenty of 2x4s to lend us. There is a busy highway nearby and road noise is obtrusive if you leave your windows open. The only grass is a small strip bordering the park and the area around the pond. You can fish for a $5 fee. The laundry/bath area has two individual toilet/shower rooms each for men and women. The wifi signal was non-existent in space 3 (furthest from the office) and very weak in 33 nearer the office.
This is a very basic park, barely okay for an overnight at the Passport America rate. - leorah

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

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 here in the past and returned. We were disappointed that the price has gone up from $25 to $34 but this is still competitive compared to other campgrounds in the area. The manager is great, he looks out for his customers and is friendly. There are still some long term campers here but also spots for travelers. Sites are clean, well-lit, level, pull-through or back-in. Cable is included but wifi is not. Campground is next to a truck stop with a restaurant and store. Would stay here again. - mohocamper

Didn't use the facilities much as it was raining while we were here. We arrived relatively late in the day, but the manager was expecting us and met us at the office to check in. He escorted us to our site, even though I offered to find it myself so he wouldn't have to get wet.
I found this to be an excellent overnight stop, with easy in and out from I-20. I didn't have to unhook our towed car, and there was plenty of room for our slideouts. The parking spot was level concrete; all utilities worked well. I will stay here again. - gfs1943

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

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

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. - Fixn2gocamp

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

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. - debbieandjon
