5 RV Parks near Kennard, Texas
Mar 2017 - $10.00
We really like this park. It is an open wooded park. All the lakeside campsites are for tenting. The Dogwood loop is for RV"s. The outside section of the Dogwood loop has w/e at every site . The other campsites are electric only with shared water as long as you bring plenty of hose ( 150 ft ). Some of the sites do have a slight grade but I have seen much worse. The park was well maintained and the camphost very friendly. The only reason I give it an 8 is no water at every site and a few ae not level. - TEXASBOY

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

Small site but well worth the side trip to find it. Staff is very friendly and park is exceptionally clean. - Ppl_rjg

Offered a host site near the entrance since park was full. It was quiet, full hookup and had a view of the woods from our rear window. Ranger Josh volunteered a lot of great history about the park. - sp123

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

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
