The staff is friendly enough and the grounds are pleasant enough, but a couple of big problems would prevent us from ever returning. We checked in just before the office closed and discovered while setting up that there was no power to our site. We presumed there was a bad breaker. But the office had already closed and we ended up running the generator all night. In the morning it was learned that power had been shut off at the main junction box for the segment we were in. management apologized profusely and since no harm was done, we put it behind us.
The next morning was when the real problem arose. We should have been forewarned when we noticed that just a few minutes of setting the dog's bowl on the ground it was swarming with ants. We dumped it out and resorted to feeding them inside. That evening I kept noticing ants walking across the sofa and would occasionally have to pick one off my arm or leg. I then spotted a stream of ants marching up the wall of the kitchen and into the cabinets. I moved all the food to the refrigerator and sprayed the cabinets with bug spray. That seemed to take care of the situation. About 2:00 am I woke up with a tingling sensation, turned on the light and saw that the bed was absolutely covered with ants. They were all over the bedding and the pillows, which I took outside and sprayed. By morning time the kitchen and bathroom floors were just crawling with ants.
Later that morning someone from staff came by on a golf cart and asked my wife if we had any problem with ants. She described what we had endured last night and the person sprayed something around the RV. This only reinforced in my mind that the staff knew about the ant situation and just chose not to warn anyone.
The other problem was gnats. I don't know what attracted them, but at night whenever you opened the door they would swarm in like a cloud and fill the interior. Horrible.
Worst camping experience ever. - ajmurray

I brought my family to this park again last weekend. I wanted to let folks know this is a nice park. While the facilities are older, they are clean and the park was clean as well. There were plenty of trash receptacles throughout. I asked about the boarded bathrooms and learned they had been vandalized. Also, while bugs are a part of camping, Lake Tawakoni was in the news this summer for giant spider webs, so it makes sense spiders were plentiful. Great place to relax, view wildlife, go fishing and get back to nature. - lovemypopup

This park was a destination resort in the 1970's, it is now nothing more then a fish camp. The pull thru spaces have many trees but the ground was weeds and dirt. You were also parked next to old permanent based RV's. The beach was dirty and the bathhouse was boarded up. I did not visit the bathrooms because of the giant Banana spider webs that were across the partitions to the bathrooms, I figured if I can't get in then what were the chances of it being clean! This park has had it's better days but for now it's rundown and unclean. - Yosemite Dan

This is a very small park near Lake Tawakoni. The camp host lives on the premises and is extremely helpful. The concrete pads are small - probably less than 20' but there was plenty of room for our 40' fifth wheel trailer, just couldn't get all 4 jacks on the concrete. The sewer hookup is at the rear of the site, so we had to get an extension hose, but other hookups were very convenient. There are a few permanent trailers that are rented out but they are well kept. There are several pavilions for day use as well as a boat launch. There is a good-sized playground, also. We would definitely stay here again when back in the area. - SandyA

This is a typical TT park. The usual amenities, a little worn, rough roads, dirt and gravel sites. Lots of annual tenants but neat and tidy. Nice and quiet on a pretty lake. Lots of fishing going on, which seems to be the major draw. The park is remote. Groceries and other basics are 15 minutes away. Stayed during a rainy week and the park is very muddy. The drainage system needs some work. There is some tree trimming and other repairs going on. The staff is very nice. - rushin river

As seems to be the case with many Thousand Trails parks, this park appeared that it had a lot going for it when it was built, but maintenance, particularly of the road surfaces, has been lacking. Check in was easy, we were told to select our own site, and we chose one in section H, near the ranger station. The site was nice, reasonable distance from neighbors, ok surface to the site (may have been asphalt at one time, now mostly gravel). On the second morning, we were watching the water rise in the sites on the road across from us, and saw the rangers coming through to ask us to move as the power would be shut down in section H (and I). Many "permanent" looking RVs were needing to move also. We moved to a site in C - after trying to get into a couple in A where the narrowness of the road and the site, and the instability of the surfaces just off the road, combined to make it very difficult to get our 43' motorhome backed in. The water continued to rise, so two days later, we moved to a site on the main road in A - a much better location.
Price reflects Thousand Trails membership. - pattic777

We chose Lake Tawakoni as the second TT park we stayed at and to take a break from sightseeing and just relax. To say the park is out of the way is an understatement, but that was what we were looking for. Upon arrival, we checked in, got our information and were told to select our own site. We started in one loop, but then decided to head toward one of the lakefront loops. We were told the other lakefront loop was mostly full and that is where the annual units are. Driving through the loop, we found many of the sites were unavailable, signaled by a plastic bag on the utility pole. We found a site, but going into the loop to the right wasn't the correct direction, so my husband had to exit the loop, turn around and come back in going to the left.
We loved our site, it was longer than we needed and very wide. We were right on the lake, so we had room and clear skies to put the satellite out, while still having trees above us. The site looked like it was asphalt at one time, but it hadn't been maintained. The hookups are 30 amp with water and sewer. During our stay we had to reset the breaker and all seemed well, but we had to take our RV for some work and return to the park. When we disconnected the electric our connector had plastic from the outlet melted on it. The power had been working, but we reported it on our way out and it was replaced when we returned. To be safe we purchased a new 50-30 amp plug. We mentioned it to the staff a couple of times, but ours hints for reimbursement were ignored.
Most of the sites, not along the lakes edge, have heavy enough tree cover to prevent satellite use, but there are ones that satellite will work.
There are two pools and a hot tub, along with two community buildings, one for adults only. The pools closed the day after we arrived,but they both looked clean and in relatively good condition.
We ended up staying 8 nights, extended from our original plan of 5. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. - Uno Mas

We spent Memorial Day weekend in site #49, which is a very long, concrete, pull through with full hook ups. The experience here centers on the lake, which features a large, clean sandy beach area with lots of shallow water swimming space. There is also a multi-lane boat ramp that was very busy. Lots of people were bank fishing the main lake for catfish, but we found the small pond near the front of the park better (ok) for the kids. There are several basic trails good for mountain biking.
Strangely, although we had 2-3 bars of LTE (AT&T), both voice and data service were almost nonexistent. We got 3-4 OTA TV stations, all public television plus one NBC that was hit and miss.
We'd come back in the summertime, mainly for the kids to enjoy the sandy beach area. - texasAUtiger

Wills Point, TX - Lake Tawakoni State Park
Nice, quiet state park on Lake Tawakoni. Plenty of room for our 40' MH with room left over to park our jeep. Paved roads, concrete pads, and full hookups in Spring Point Camping Loop. Lots of trees, couldn't get a sattelite signal in site 73 but over the air channels were good out of Dallas. decent cell phone signal with Verizon coverage. Boat launch, sandy beach with swimming area. Bathrooms were clean. - Phaeton2

Lake Tawakoni State Park is a beautiful Texas State Park 11 miles north of Wills Point, TX. They have full hook-up and water and electric sites in back in and pull throughs. We were in site 50 (50A full hookup pull through) and can see and access the lake from the site. Popular Lake for fishing. 6 miles of nice hiking trails. Only 70 miles from Dallas. Closest grocery store 11 miles in Wills Point. Nearest Walmart 14 miles in Quinlan. We've been here many times and will return. - drfife

New Campground in the Lake Tawakoni area. You have water (lake) access and boat access. This park caters primarily to long term tenants, but all long term residents are vetted by a background check, has surveillance cameras and is gated. Feel very secure. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Will return. - stanbar

Our first visit to North Shore Landing in a 40' RV with toad. Interior roads and long pull through sites can fit any size rig. Wi-Fi had good reception. Stocked pond on site; this is located on a world class bass fishing lake. This is 20 minutes from the Canton 1st weekend sale, a quiet break from the busy shopping area. Pad sites are level with gravel and full hook-ups. There were back-in and pull through sites available. We saw motor-homes, fifth-wheels, and travel trailers. There were also cabins and a house available. A boat ramp is on site. Very reasonable country club golf available 15 min away. The pond has a great deck with fire and BBQ available. Floats available for the pond and a fountain was on, but too cold for us, maybe in June. We spent two nights, but hope for 3-4 on the next trip. This is a very new facility; they are currently building a laundry room and shower facilities. The grounds are beautiful. - Navychop

We just stopped over night on our way back to Austin. Was very clean & quiet, I felt the grounds were attractive & we enjoyed an evening walk to the lake with our dog. - snowstormelf

Stayed here 7 yrs ago when it was a KOA. Has held up well. It is not cheap but no parks near a big city like Dallas are. Site was long and level with shade. There are lots of long term residents but all is neat, orderly and quiet while we were there. We didn't use it but it had one of the nicest looking pools I have seen in any park. They do allow neighbors to use it for a fee but couldn't see that seemed to cause any issue. Restrooms are a bit dated but were very clean and well maintained. Would stay there again if visiting in the Dallas area. - AZJC

They must think the location justifies the exorbitant rate. The park is nice but it has no cable, and when you register they warn you the wifi is weak. The site was level and the roads were easily navigable. The facilities, i.e. laundry room, club room, store, playground, are immaculate and well organized, however, being charged for these facilities when one only wants a place to stay for the night is frustrating. I'd stay here again only because it's the nicest park in the area. - Gator67

Superior views of Lake Fork. Park has a boat launch and fishing pier with cleaning station. Many shady sites, with nice spacing between sites. Some sites have especially nice spacing with great lake views. 3 small cabins are also available for rental. Sites have a mix of gravel, grass and paved pads with gravel interior roads. We plan to return next spring for a two month stay, at significantly lower rates than the daily. - cjfteach

Stayed for a night on the way to Branson. Nice park with a private lake. The pull-through sites are narrow. I asked for a larger site in the back. Friendly staff and close to all businesses and to I-30. No designated dog run area but plenty of land to walk dogs.
Voltage was good. WiFi only near the office. Will return. - MikMc

Gave it a 3 because the electric and water worked. This is mostly a residence park and is dated. They may have about 4 or so spots for transient stays. Space was on grass. If it rains, you may be in trouble. They close by noonish on Saturday, so never saw any staff.
In hindsight would have been as good to stay at truck stop or at a Walmart.
It IS easy to find of the interstate (about 3 miles) But it is an old park not very well kept up and overpriced at $32.00
While the pickings are slim in this area, think I would stop a little further up the road in Mt. Pleasant. Sign out front says, "Best Little RV Park in Texas" clearly part of someone's delusion! They just don't take care of this place. - Bigdogsolo

I called about 8 est and the manager agreed to reserve me a spot. My pad was conveniently near the office. I enjoyed a full hookup, a nearby pond with a warning sign about alligators, and plenty of grass to walk my dogs on. I commend the maintenance man for being extra helpful to me in loaning me his ladder and a screwdriver to replace a broken vent. I met the owner and was pleased to stay at at site with a pic of Kelsey Gramer as a guest. Both a Walmart and Pilot were within 4 miles, although my GPS made it seem next door. I would stay there again. - Mhlangford

The website does not state how many RV sites are in the park. The pictures show a lovely park, but when we got here it was old and somewhat run down. We had made reservations, but it looks like this park is full of full time residents. We are stuck out by the boat ramp and the site is not level. Lake Fork is a great fishing lake, but we are disappointed in this RV park. They have a decent restaurant, but it has a bar which is okay if you are not parked close to it. The people and the cars kept us awake until around 2 a.m. Now I am tired. We will not be back. - Deede
