5 Parks near Kennard, Texas

Even tho the park road makes a loop around the lake, use the West entrance. It's tight, but possible to get a 45' MH to your site. Sites are deep in length and wide, but you have to pick the most level area. We didn't use any utilities, no 50A, so it was dry camping. Nice park atmosphere and quiet. - duster340

Campground wasn't in top notch shape for campgrounds, but yet, better than I expected since the reopening of it since the drought and tornado. I was impressed with the restrooms/showers on account of I didn't expect them to be that good. The folks working there are friendly and respectful. I do plan on another camping trip. Don't know when yet, but the campout will be there. - jimLE

Camper parking pads were mostly dirt and uneven. Definitely not a manicured campground if that is your preference. We stopped for one night. It served our purpose. Would not be a destination campground except for local camping or maybe fishing in the lake. - jwindham

This is quiet little State Park on the edge of the Davy Crockett National Forest. They have five RV campsites with full hookups for only $15 a night. Other campsites are available with water and electricity for $13 a night. The park has a dump station. The RV sites are not level but they are asphalt. Campsites include a picnic table, fire ring with grill-top, a lantern post, and also a waist high cooking grill. The towering pines and oaks are magnificent and there are plenty of birds and other wildlife.The Park Ranger and staff are very friendly and helpful. This park offers free firewood! The park office sells bagged ice for $2 a bag.
We enjoyed the peaceful serenity of camping among the East Texas pines. It was so quiet. We even had an armadillo come into camp after dark for a short visit. - rvbozo

This was our first camping in a new RV, a small 22-foot. Called ahead and had a pull-through site (#9) for us when we arrived, and found it without any issues. (It probably wouldn't have fit anything bigger than a 30 footer, though.) The site was very nice, tree shaded, except it wasn't level. We hiked on a couple of the trails which were nice. All the shade made for a surprisingly cool late afternoon/evening/morning. We very much enjoyed our experience there and look forward to returning. - RobtL

I've only gone fishing there, and I won't camp there in a camper much less a tent on account I didn't like how the sites look. The campground wasn't well kept the last time I was there. Most areas are unlevel, from camp sites to everywhere else. There's 1 pond for fishing. It needed cleaning the last time I was there. Yet I must admit that the campground is well shaded for the most part. It does have hiking trails, and there's a pavilion for get togethers. - jimLE

Nice quiet place to spend a couple nights. Off the beaten path. Showers and laundry on site. Took a walk through the beautiful city park. Host was very nice and helped me get hooked up to electrical. Pads are grass and spacious, full hookups at site. Several fulltime residents. Roads are a little bumpy and there is no shade. - Sunneee

Basically the same comments as the last reviewer in 2009. Doesn't look like anything has changed. Sure don't know where they got the pictures they use on their website, because we saw nothing like that when we pulled in. There must be something better in the area. - Grumpier99

We would not stop here again. No TV or Wi-Fi as promised. Campground is merely a gravel lot with water and electric. One toilet, one shower, one sink all in the same room with no partitians. No one present to assist or answer questions. You must phone in to register. - W Davidson

As previously stated, the website's photos are very misleading. The concrete strips make for an effort to get your tires onto both strips. The park is a barren, gravel parking lot. There is no onsite staff, and the bathroom/shower looks iffy. I can't address the wi-fi because I couldn't connect, and I was 20 yds away from the tower. I told the manager this when she showed up, and she said that I should have pressed the red reset button on the side of the office building. I don't push unlabeled red buttons. I have rerouted my return trip home to avoid Crockett, as I will not stay here again. - wbcci1529

For only $20 a night for full hookups, Salmon Lake Park is a great RV park where Texas hospitality is demonstrated. The park host and staff are friendly and "looking to please". The owner came out and spent an evening with us sharing some wonderful stories from his life. He is a very interesting fellow who has had more than a few adventures.
The park has all the amenities: small store for snacks, drinks, bottled water, and bagged ice. There is fishing, swimming, a playground, an old west town, and even a few tree-houses! Check out their website Salmon Lake Park for all the fun details and pictures.
Salmon Lake Park does not accept credit cards. The campsites are level and most are well-shaded by oak, pine, and live oak trees. The RV sites are grass and/or sand. The park is basically a wide open pasture with a smattering of trees and hook-ups for the RVs. If it rains you can expect mud.
Be prepared for ants (big ants, red ants, carpenter, ants, fire ants, little ants, black ants, etc.) We recommend using Amdro Ant Block or some similar product.
Each Memorial Day week-end Salmon Lake Park has a Gospel Music Festival and every Labor Day week-end they have a big East-Texas Blue Grass Festival. - rvbozo

Nice rec hall, no cable TV, new WiFi system in part of the park worked OK. A large park, some shade and two small ponds. Many old buildings set up to look like an old west or early 190's village. Many sites, you can find one to suit you. - txprospector

Enjoyed the stay. Very friendly folks. I liked the old buildings, truck, cars and stuff. Brought back some old memories. Enjoyed photographing around the location. Most of the sites I saw seemed to level. Easy to get in and get hooked up. I would go back and recommend for a place to visit and relax. Peaceful. Only reason I didn't go with a 10: no place is perfect. - Capt_dennis
