Nice and quiet, with lots of trees and a bike ride away from the lake. Waterfront lots available but were booked up. I have already booked the waterfront for 2 more trips we plan to spend at this park. Can't wait to get there again. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful location on the lake and we had a site overlooking the lake. Site were not that level, but the location and view make up for any minor shortcomings. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great state park. Beautiful lake, thick woods, lots of shade, camp sites are not too close together. We stayed in site #67. It was a back in site, but I pulled in forward so we had a view of the lake out the windshield of the MH. Water and electric was on the right (wrong) side of the MH when parked this way, but hose and electric cable reached utility post easily. I did not hook up to sewer because we were only there two nights. The park was nearly empty mid week this time of year. There are lots of down trees in the park so picking up firewood is not a problem. Had a roaring campfire at night, very nice. The only drawback is the parking pads are pretty uneven. It looks like the ground was not prepared properly before the asphalt was put down and they are all a bit wavy and uneven. We managed to get pretty level. It was well worth the effort. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Motorhome.

Really nice view from premium site 57. Site wasn't real level, it had sewer, but it was up hill from sewer pipe, electrical was close to road (not having extension cord) had to park closer to road. Some one was having family reunion in park and playing rap music, rangers never said turn it down. They patrolled pretty regular, but they didn't stop. I'd stay here again, weekend you just got to see whats up and hunker down. Only are I'd stay is in premium sites by lake, rest of it looks rough. Texas SP amazes me they charge $25 a night and $7. dollars a day for gate others state do it also, but some remove it. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice state park. We stayed in the premium sites on the lake for 4 nights. Very spacious but not very level. All else was great. Gorgeous views, quiet, good shade, but we were able to get a decent satellite TV signal. Very enjoyable. Would absolutely recommend and stay here again. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Now I remember why I love State Parks. The combination of rate ($21/night) plus very spacious sites and tree cover! This park is awesome. We do a lot of KOA, Jellystone, RV resort type camping. We'll be back here as often as we can. A short drive from Houston and feels like a different part of the country. Beautiful lake, hiking trails, etc. The park is pet friendly. The rangers are laid back (virtually non-existent) and the campers were all seemingly very respectful of each other. If I have to "ding" the park it would be that the bathhouse close to us, while clean and functional was not very spacious, the water pressure was (significantly) lacking and there was no soap at the sink (not just an empty dispenser but no soap). Also the sites were black top and are fairly sloped at the edges making the positioning of the RV somewhat a challenge. But back to the good, this is the only SP I've ever camped in where they actually allow / encourage you to forage for down trees to burn as firewood. There is actually an inordinate amount of down trees which is somewhat puzzling but makes for a nice (free) week-end of constant fires. If you come, visit the faith stables for a horseride and steak dinner. It's nose to tail riding but great for the kids and the dinner was fantastic. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Motorhome.

The premium sites are very nice. We were in site 69. There was no one in front so we had a great water view. Sites are level, with full hook ups. They have had a lot of trees die off and have been cut down. Still a very nice park We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park with plenty of bike trails and natural wooded areas. More amenities than most state parks. We stayed here on Easter weekend and it still didn't seem too crowded. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Motorhome.

Great park with lots to do for adults and kids. We stayed in the Yaupon loop this trip and had a nice shady site that required about 3 inches of leveling on one side of the rig. The utilities worked just fine and we could get a few channels with the antenna. Our children enjoyed fishing at the marina and riding their bikes on the trails. There is a pool but it opens only after Memorial weekend and there is no swim beach. We will return again. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is a very nice, heavily wooded area. We stayed in the Piney Woods section on a lakefront site. The trees provided very nice shade on a sunny day. The overall sites are large, but the location for the RV was a bit narrow and VERY hard to back into. The roads were not very wide and had deep drainage ditches complicating backing into the spot. Our spot was nowhere near level, adding to the back in problems. To level the rig, the front was almost on the ground while the back was lifted several feet. WiFi was a pleasant surprise. The signal was weak, but worked well, although we were there during the week so it wasn't as crowded as a weekend. Utilities were ok, but placement was a little unusual with sewer far to the front and water behind the rig. The check-in procedure was unusual. Ranger gave me a campsite map and marked available sites. Said not to unhook or drop anything off - pick a site, bring the rig back to the front office, finish the check-in, then go back and unhook. Nice lake. Lot of people fishing. Some boating with several boat ramps in the park. The seawalls on the lake don't seem to be compatible with using the lake for swimming. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the worst state park visit ever and it starting with the sullen, terse reception upon check-in. It's a beautiful park, set in tall mixed forest. A trail winds through out the park and there is a stable for arranging trail rides. Wi-Fi was weak but usable. Three camping areas, nicely separated with some sites right on the lake. We chose Red Oak to be away from the lake and road. Like most state parks, the sites are generous.  We like state parks for their naturalness. The quiet and dark allow us to sleep with windows open. The Park Host next door had a dozen 8" white light bulbs strung around his site, lighting up the entire woods all night. The neighbor across had multicolor and white strings of lights, also left on all night. Same neighbor left two barking dogs tied out while they were away. Texas State Parks are reluctant to enforce rules, since they want campers' business. By Saturday morning, incoming campers were parked everywhere, even though the rules clearly prohibit parking off pavement.  We would not return to this park.  We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park, loved the trees and natural feel of the park. I liked that it didn't feel like a glorified parking lot. It felt like there was some privacy with the space we had between our campsites. Not all campsites had such space between them, but fortunately for us we did. I would definitely recommend this park. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I'm giving this park an 8 because of the lake front sites. The rate paid reflects the $21 for the lakefront site plus park admission rate of $4/person per day. The back-in site we had sloped down from the road, and the placement of the utilities was strange. Water was well behind the site, had to extend our water hose. Sewer was toward the front of the site which put it at a high point. It wouldn't drain correctly. I had to wait til we left, pull forward to get the rig higher than the sewer connection and then dump the tanks. Other than that, we enjoyed the park and the lake and would probably stay here again. We'd just be more careful choosing a site. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall: Likely would not go there again during the summer months, but maybe in fall when swimming isn't gonna happen any ways. Nice hookups, not the best swimming lake. The Good: It's easy for us to get to near Houston. And the hookups (water, 30 and 50 amp electric, and sewer for our gray/black water tanks) were terrific. Plenty of shade on the site and several restrooms in nice condition (although some joker at the site left a present in both the men and women showers while we were there, but that's not the camp site's fault and they did clean it up the next morning). There is fishing from the retainer wall side walks. My daughter enjoyed catching a catfish. The Bad: We stayed on Yaupon Loop and the roads were terrible. Paved but cracking and unlevel. We saw more than one 5th wheel struggling to get into their slots. No great natural swimming here. Not the best for biking as the roads are rough. There were some trails, but not as much as I'd hoped. There is no beach to the lake at this location; it is a drop off from the retaining wall. Some folks with older kids just jumped in from the retaining wall, but with younger kids and folks trying to fish all along the wall, we didn't do it. There is a pool, but costs extra ($3 for adults, $2 for children). We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Tent Trailer.

I stayed one night. It is not a Big-Rig friendly place. Access roads are very narrow and there are no pull-through sites. If you aren't an expert at backing your big rig, I wouldn't consider this place. Pros: Shady. Cons: Only a few spots can be backed into with something over 30' unless you are a real pro. The access roads are narrow with pretty good drop offs. I had three guys try and help me get my 35' fifth wheel into a spot and nearly had a disaster. The angle of the pads is too sharp for the narrow access road and the pad entrances are narrow with ditches on both sides. I dropped two wheels of the trailer into the culvert and thought the whole thing was going to tip over. If you have a tent or a smaller trailer this would be a good place.
