We stayed 7 nights on the Piney Shore Loop. We were next to the water, and never had any problem with mosquitoes or flies. St. Augustine grass has been planted, so picking burrs out of our dogs was not an issue. We were thrilled with our site, and hope to return soon. With the site reservation system, sure does help in choosing the site you want. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed during the week. Quiet, beautiful and well maintained park. Park staff were readily available during the day and very helpful during checking. We didn't see staff after dark. We didn't see much wildlife other than birds and squirrels. The lake is the second largest in Texas! Several campers fishing. Great trails for walking and biking. Sad to see many sites reserved but not used. The Piney Shores Loop had beautiful waterfront views on sites 53 thru 71. We enjoyed our stay! We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Travel Trailer.

With advanced full hook up reservations made 90 days prior to arrival for a 2-night stay, we arrived on a week day. We stayed in a back-in camp site along the lake in the Piney Shores Loop. This State Park is the beta test for Texas State Park site specific reservations and it all worked out wonderfully. Concrete slab for travel trailer was very level, but sewer hookup was more so closer to road than to the back of the site, so due to that, we were not able to place trailer totally to the very back of the concrete slab, which made for a very tight situation with parking our tow vehicle on the concrete slab in the front of our travel trailer. Large site with picnic table, fire ring and lantern pole. Lots of vegetation between us and the neighboring sites. Extremely quiet as mostly older adults camping. The toilet/shower house was a bit far, about a 12 minute walk. Unlike other parks, this park did not have an entrance gate that closed during the overnight hours. No firewood available for purchase in Park, so closest we found was a refueling station 3 miles outside the park for a buck a piece. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very well kept State Park. Excellent staff, hosts, hiking trails, store, playground, etc. Site spacing very good. Hercules loop is better suited for smaller rigs but we were able to get our 40' fifth wheel backed in. We frequent this park several times annually.

Never again! We ended up with a site nearly impossible to back into as both sides of the narrow road in campground had deep ditches. Had it not been late in the day we would not have stayed. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful park with amazing sunset views over the lake from the "premium" sites. These sites are $28/night but we used one of our 50% off coupons with our annual park pass for one night. Bath houses slightly older but still clean and functional. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent state park for a visit up to a couple weeks. One thing to consider, about 1/2 the sites require you to back in on your blind side and it is tight. We had a bumper pull of 38 feet on a crew cab. If you take your time, you can make it. Staff allows you to look and select a site before you make your final decision. Good walking trails for you and your animals. Great place. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We love that you can reserve a specific site in the Piney Shores and Red Oak areas. The photos on the web site let you see each site, so you know ahead of time what you are getting and that your rig will fit. We wish all state parks had this. These two areas of the park have had renovations done since our last visit in November 2015. The roads are completely repaved, the parking sites redone with concrete, (no more precarious dropoffs at the edge.), new tables, and new fire rings/grills. Piney Shores is right on the bank of the beautiful Lake Livingston, where we enjoyed great sunsets and watching birds such as seagulls, pelicans, and even a pair of Bald Eagles! Most sites are spacious, level, and shaded. Depending on your rig, some sites may require up to 40 feet of electric cord and/or water and sewer hose. Navigating the roads and entering the sites is easy. Electric service was good, but water pressure was 40 PSI most of the week, and dropped to only 20 PSI on a busy Saturday. For those rainy days, we were able to get a strong 4G Verizon signal, and could get all TV networks except ABC. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Loved this beautiful park. Its very wooded and we had a great lakeside spot. However, there were millions of caterpillars...literally falling out of the sky (spinning silks from the high trees and dangling down and dropping). The mosquitos were bad also. The interesting thing is...we ended up moving 30 minutes up the lake to another park and there are no bugs here. Our neighbors did say the bugs are not always this bad. The lakeside sites are beautiful though and I loved that we could fish from our site and the trees were perfect for hanging a hammock. Note that this park was closing April 1st, for the remainder of the year. Apparently they are renovating. There is a daily $5 charge for every person over 17, unless you buy the annual state park pass for $70 which allows all adults in your vehicle to avoid the $5 per day fee. There is also an extra $4 fee for an extra car, per day. Our site was a tight fit due to the trees being so close to the pad, but we were able to fit in our 37 foot 5th wheel. We were in the Piney Shores loop. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed in Yaupon Loop. The site pads are asphalt but most are in very poor repair.....uneven, sunken spots, broken off, etc. The loop road is in the same condition. Park is in need of serious maintenance. Camping area in this loop is in a low lying area and is currently very sloppy and flooded. The drainage ditches are not effective. It is seasonal holiday time so the park is very crowded. Most of the campers have dogs and almost none of them have any inclination to pick up after their animals. That makes for a filthy, unsanitary condition in the campground. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We love staying at this park! Especially if we can get a spot in the Piney Shores loop. It is right on the bank of the beautiful Lake Livingston, where we enjoyed great sunsets and watching birds such as seagulls, pelicans, and anhingas. Most sites are spacious, level, and shaded. A few of them did have sewer hookups that were slightly uphill. Workers came by each morning to mow and clear leaves. We love that you can reserve a specific site at this park! Although the swimming pool has permanently closed, you can swim, boat, and fish in the lake, as well as hike, bike, and ride horses. It is quiet during the night, and stargazing it excellent. For those rainy days, we were able to get a strong 4G Verizon signal, and could get all TV networks except ABC. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great Park with wonderful views, The price is for a Premium Lakeside Spot. The spot was great but they need to work on getting them a little more level. Be prepared with extra leveling blocks because you are going to need them, also bring extra hose (fresh water and dump). Some of the sites have varying distances to water and dump. Once you get setup you will love it. The park is very nice with lots to explore. We went during the week and were there were very few people around. Beware of the squirrels they have no fear and will come right up to you and take your food off of the table. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park and at this time of year, during the week, virtually empty. This campground is perfect for small rigs and the smaller Travel Trailers and pop-ups face no challenges. The road through the campground is narrow so swing room can be an issue. The sites are lumpy and in some cases, not at all level. We are in a premium site across from the lake and there is a drainage ditch running under the entrance to the site which could cause considerable damage if you dropped a tire into it. We are 55 feet hitched and had no issue getting into our site. There are some sites suited to larger fifth wheels and motor homes but not many. During our stay one rig ended up in a ditch while backing into his site and other folks opted to change sites once they saw their original reserved site. The hookups are various distances away from the pad so be sure to pack the long hoses. A ranger did mention that TXDOT plans to repave the road and campsites this fall.

I highly recommend this park but if you have a larger rig you need to be prepared to take your time backing into the site and leveling. I rely on these reviews for making campground choices for our large rig so I am hoping to be helpful to someone else with these cautions. We camped at Lake Livingston State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
