20 RV Parks near Livingston, Texas
Jan 2018 - $13.00
Price based on monthly rate of $400 for the month not including electric. We stayed from late October 2017 till early Feb 2018. Nice, well maintained park. During heavy rains, sites did not flood. Very quite and feels like you're truly in the woods. Spacing of sites give privacy. Sites are large. Very few activities in park and no community room. There is an outdoor pavilion, but seldom used. Great base to go do other things. - C Young

Stayed in the off season- Early January. Park is pretty much vacant. The size of the pull thru lots are AMAZING. Possibly 60 feet? Wifi close to the office is decent. My site and the next one next to it had permanently installed Dish or Direct TV dishes. Pretty nice. Very friendly staff and grounds are clean. Water was pretty good, as well as pressure. No over-the-air tv channels and no cable. The manager, worked with me on price above the two day Passport stay. Really decent people. The area is kinda limited in entertainment. The closest grocery is in Cold Spring- about 8 miles. The Walmart (and civilization) is about a twenty five minute drive. The park grounds are well marked and seem that they would drain nicely in a heavy rain. Close to Lake Livingston dam. - BillyBobTX

Nice out of the way wooded campground. Very friendly staff and clean restrooms and showers. Close by bike trails at Double Lake Rev Area. - PF Churchill
Feb 2012 - $30.00
Needs renovating, but office staff are great. Spaces too close together and a swamp when it rains, and it is too expensive for having no amenities, but it is on the water and the view is great. There is a bar there now, so don't stay there unless you don't mind hearing "boom-da-boom da boom' until 2 AM. - 3dogsnight

A great place to stay right on Lake Livingston. Big RV spots available on the water, great views, open area. Also has 2 boat ramps, covered boat slips, marina and convenience store on premises. Has hotel next to RV Park as well. A great place to stay, will go there again. Lots of room to walk around and enjoy. Thanks. - thelandmaster

The good: Our spot on the second row was level. All roads were concrete once you reached the office. Good view of the lake.
The bad: The park was half-filled with permanent residents. One camper had air conditioner tubing rigged from their camper into a car. The two young ladies in the office were not helpful and one was argumentative. The grass had not been cut or edged. The weeds were a foot tall. Very disappointed. - Lynn46
Nov 2017 - $38.00
We initially loved the park however, some very loud and disruptive permanent residents (to the point they were rollerskating in the laundry/community area and skreething) also outdoors yelling as if limbs were in danger. We called the office and we were told during camp hours they can be as noisy as they want. They even had no problem with skating in laundry/common area. We chose to move to a spot as far from the permanent guests possible. To make it more frustrating the staff not once acted remorsfully or sympathetic. We love the location/fishing so much we will stay. However our plans to come back seasonally are changed. - Akastanley
Nov 2017 - $37.00
Friendly staff. Maintenance came around to make sure we had no problems with the hook up. Site does slant a little bit, but was able to level with no problems. Lots of room between RVs so you don't feel cramped. Sewer has a P-trap. Don't open your tanks wide open immediately.
If you are coming in after dark, the entry is pretty hard to find and does need updating. We came in during daylight, but I can see that this may be a problem. Wi-Fi works most of the time: dependent on number of users! Nice fishing pier. - Linda604
Feb 2018 - $14.00
The owners are wonderful. I was here for just over 5 weeks. Bathroom, showers and laundry room are all very clean. The sites are nice and all have a picnic table, fire ring and they provide the first batch of fire wood. They have two dog runs. There is a nice walking trail around the park. Was not able to pick up any stations on my antenna but the WiFi in the park is excellent. I have already planned my next visit to the park. - Jen W

This is great campground to stay at while in the area of Livingston, TX, home of Escapees organization. The owners are just the nicest people and make one feel so welcome. The bathhouse/laundry are located in a small building and the cleanliness was outstanding. Recycling is available and they have outside games available for patrons to use. They have two fenced in dog parks and even have horse corrals available for those who travel with horses (and yes someone stopped for several days with their horses). The WiFi is outstanding and there are 4-5 repeaters in the small camping area. The camp office has a small amount of groceries, mostly sodas and candy. The sites are close together and not level. We have auto levelers and did not have any trouble leveling though our front end of our 5th wheel was very close to the ground. The sites are gravel/dirt and when it rained, it was really messy and difficult not to carry stuff inside the RV and this was Really our only complaint of this campground. It was not as much of a problem when it was dry. We paid the monthly rate with a military discount and paid separately for electricity. When we add electric to our site cost, it averaged $15 per night. This is a relatively new campground and they are still making additions to make the stay better. We loved this place and would return. - roadking

Oct 2017 - $24.00
We found a lot of trash in the fire pit. The sites were not policed after the last group left. Our neighbor found trash also In his site also. There is no trash can at the dump station, so people threw plastic gloves on the ground along with other trash. Park would be very nice, if it was cleaned up Lady working in office was helpful and friendly. Nice that they pick up your bagged trash daily at your site. Beware! You can't cancel your reservation for any reason. You can reschedule in the same season. - Texan58

Nice park on Lake Livingston. Nice that the park is closed for day use during the weekends, cuts down on traffic. My one complaint is the use of boom boxes and car radios that can be heard all off the park. Not a quiet place on Saturday afternoon. - Texan58

We stayed on site 73. Very spacious but lots of long leaf pine needles on pad and in the grassy areas but especially under the picnic table. Evidently the leaf blowers had not been around in a while. Another pet peeve of tidy campers was the fire pit full of trash including plastic bottles. Park maintenance folks hadn't been around to clean up site and we didn't arrive until almost 4pm!
Other than those issues it is a lovely park with lots of amenities and the staff in the entry station and the store were very helpful and pleasant. Our site had a lake view. Unfortunately it was so hot and humid we didn't spend much time out of doors!
This is a great park and lake if you are fishing for cat fish. Unfortunately for us we were fishing for bass and this is not the place for them. Plus the lake is shallow so a light wind can make it very rough. Due to these issues we decided to cut our stay short. We had reserved for two separate stays and cancelled the second one. A word to the wise, be very sure of your stay, once it is booked you CANNOT get a refund. Even though we cancelled the second stay a week in advance the Trinity River Authority (who runs the lake and this campground) does not grant any refunds, EVER. I guess they think that their authority gives them a license to steal! We lost $40.00 to them! - Rick & Karen

This is a very nice park with a great location to explore the Lake Livingston area. The reservation and check-in process was smooth, with an efficient and knowledgeable staff. Roads in the site are concrete and asphalt. It is big-rig friendly, but some of the turns in the "Tall Timbers" section are tight for bigger rigs. If you take it slow you will be OK. Also, some of the asphalt sections on the hills tend to get chewed up by the rigs but they get repaired quickly. Most sites are level with the exception of some of the sites at the bottom of the hill in the Tall Timbers section. We had to place blocks and take several trys to get the auto-level to work. There is ample space between sites. Sites have picnic tables and fire rings. Satellite service and Verizon cell phone service were both good. The park provides cable and that worked very well. Wi-fi can be spotty, but was better than most parks. The park has wonderful views of Lake Livingston, a clean, safe beach, a pool that is well-cared for, and an on site restaurant that is open some nights of the week and weekends. The park staff is very attentive to needs. Trash is picked up daily, the grass is cut, and rules are enforced. We had a relaxing time here and enjoyed the views and pool. We will definately return. - Buckeyefan4

we have been here a few times in recent years and wanted to come back for a multiple day stay. Our timing was perfect. In May, they were having a stay 3 days during the week (Sun-Thu) for the price of a 2 day stay. As usual, we were in the Tall Timbers section in a level, FHU, pull-through site near the bathrooms and laundry building. There are 2 other bathhouses in the park. The cable TV was good and our site was satellite friendly. Possibly because the park was not full, the Wi-Fi worked OK for our minimal (e-mail and web surfing) needs. In addition to being on the lake, there is a nice pool, a marina, a beach, and a restaurant. Once again, I see no recycling. Even at the normal rates, this park is worth it. - Jerry S

I was directed to travel along the road adjacent to sites 75 to 79, go past site 81 and back in to that site. That was impossible with a 45' DP. In trying to get past site 81, my tail pipe was on the ground and I had to remove the hitch for my tow car...it was stuck on the ground. I had to maneuver around, get the tail pipe free, the hitch off and go forward up and down two streets so I was heading west, then could back in without a problem. This has happened before, there are several scrapes and one deep gouge in the concrete. However, there was not room enough to comfortably park the tow car. Also, the tow cars parked in sites 79 and 80 blocked each other in with their tow cars. - Old GI

Stayed here as a Coast-to-Coast guest. This is a development for selling lots on or near the lake. Fairly new, so there isn't much in the way of landscaping. Positives; It's quiet and the staff is friendly, sites are easy to get into and they are level. Negatives: RV park not on or even looking at the lake, also gets a lot of in house traffic at all hours of the night. There is a pool near the clubhouse, but it's far from the RV park.First site I got into the 50 amp plug was missing, the next one had the water spigot missing. This place doesn't really qualify as a resort, if you want to do something besides get out in the country away from the noise. If you bring your boat to put on the lake, it might be a good fish camp. - tbax46

We had a great time... for August camping in Texas. We almost had the entire place to ourselves. Only 3 other sites were occupied. On RV door side (passenger) the next spot was 50 yards away through thick brush. On the other side (driver) the next spot was only 15 yards away and clearly visible should you look back there (we did not). From the camper's bumper, the lake was just 20 yards away. A great spot that we will try to get again next time.The kids enjoyed the swimming area which was clean and well maintained. - Warkog
Jun 2017 - $24.00
This a nice small park. There are several pull-throughs which have full hookups and can handle big rigs. There are not any sites which you could really call lake view due to the heavy forest. The swimming area is really nice. Verizon service is a little spotty but usable. Like Cagle Rec Area, your America the Beautiful discount is screwy, not really half price like most USFS and COE parks. We will probably come here again. - TEXASBOY

Update review 11/2016 - This is one of our favorite places to camp in our RV. This is a very small camping area in the Sam Houston National Forest near Coldspring Texas. There are sites you can reserve and sites that are first-come-first serve.
There are 2 park hosts that live in the park and they are very accommodating if you need anything, but don't expect to see a constant presence by park staff.
The park is a beautiful forest like facility with very wooded and shady sites, a small lake with plenty of water in it (after a couple drought seasons) and abundant hiking and biking trails.
We only camp on the full service RV sites. (Not all sites are full service.) Some sites are reasonably level and some require substantial leveling efforts. Just make sure you have plenty of Lynx levelers or equivalent. The pedestals are conveniently located with 30/50 amp service, water and dump. The sites driveway is blacktop and most sites have a concrete pad with a large picnic table and a nearby fire pit.
Cell service and TV reception are weak, so don't plan to watch a lot of TV unless you have a satellite system. - Tcamper

We like this campground. The quiet setting is what brings us here. If you are looking for a place with planned activities, this is not for you. All transient sites are pull-through, full hook-ups. - JBu

This is a small little park. It is run down and in desperate need of repair. The ceiling in the lodge is falling down, not just in one place but the whole building. The pool bathhouse is old and has mold on the walls. The floors are rotted, the toilets are about to fall through the floor. The pool is above ground and is not in good condition. They only have 2 50 amp sites for the whole park, no shade available. The electric is spotty and has low voltage on every site. The owners are now charging per nite for electric, even if you only stay 1 night. - Anita Kirby

I agree with previous reviewers. A neat little park in a beautiful rural setting. Wonderful management couple. We just stayed one night, but I wish that we had the time to stay longer and just relax. - Artic Fox Guy
Apr 2010 - $55.00
Very well run park. Owners very friendly and cooperative. Protected as they do not allow problem people to stay in the park. It is very safe and clean. Sites are not huge but very well kept and very clean. - new2rvlivingfulltime

There is a nice lake view, and the prevailing SE wind gives good breeze off the lake. There are plenty of trees. Sites include a concrete pad for chairs, tables, etc.The interior roads are gravel. It may be tight for large MH's & 5th wheelers but several large rigs seemed to have made it ok. - Friz

These people are the nicest people on the planet. They have made us feel so welcome. Compared to our recent stay in Cut N Shoot where the owner was abusive and mean, these people make us feel like family. They have everything here including a small gym and right on the lake. All of the patrons are friendly which is obviously a reflection of the owner's treatment of everyone. I highly recommend this place - it's beautiful, right on the lake, and so comfy! - LWiesman
