18 RV Parks near Longview, Texas
Aug 2016 - $17.00
Rate reflects no access fees due to Texas State Park Pass. We don't normally give 10's to parks without FHU, but this park deserves it. This is a gem of a state park! Quiet, clean and well kept. This is the nicest state park staff we have ever come across. The park manager is present and active; the office staff is helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Ranger staff, maintenance and camp hosts were all visible and friendly. They welcomed us and went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay. Power was steady at 122V and 55PSI for water. No sewer, but there is a double dump station. It was very clean and provided a trash can and water hook up. They have an island you can access by a walking bridge with picnic tables and trails all thru it. Great bird watching, large boat launch and numerous places to fish and enjoy nature.
There are 2 camping loops, one is 30 amp only, the other is larger, but they only offer about six 50 amp sites at this time. Staff told us they are updating their electricity to the park and hope to have more 50A in the near future. Most are fairly level. The park was quiet while we were here. There are some camping shelters for tenting and a couple of cabins. We plan to return to this park in the future. - Fixn2gocamp

We stayed for a week at lakefront site #52 for $17/night. Non-lakefront is $13. Expect an additional daily entrance fee *per person,* but since we expect to stay at TX state parks for at least 3 weeks, buying the annual pass for $70 will pay itself off. The sites are pretty well spaced apart, some are quite private, but many of them are sloped and too short. The park requires you to park your vehicle on the pavement so we had to park ours sideways while we were unhooked from our 30' 5th wheel. Each site comes with a fire pit, picnic table, hanging hooks, tent pad, and sometimes a cover for the table (ours came with one). No sewer at any of the sites. There is only one bath house for each of the camping loops, and extremely outdated, one of the worst I've come across in my 7 months of full-time RVing. My first shower only lasted 5 minutes because the hot water ran out. Now, I'm wishing I would have listened to the other reviewers and stayed in a regular site away from the lake due to the noise emitted by the coal trains and power plant. It seems to be the loudest at night, lasting just around midnight before it finally quiets down. You can sometimes feel the vibrations from the noise through the RV unit (lasts just a short while). Our Verizon MiFi got 2 bars of LTE, voice was consistent. Got 2 TV channels over the air: some station named COZI (played 60's-80's shows) and a Spanish one. I hate having to write such a poor review for a state park, but this one really does need some improvement to lengthen the parking pads, update the bath houses, and finish building covers for the other sites picnic tables. They can't do anything about the power plant, which sadly will keep us from ever returning on our way back through in the future. - Sara C.

$17 per night was for a mostly level asphalt pad with 50-amp electric and water site in the Bee Tree campground. We do have the TX Parks Pass we purchased for $70 (it allows access to all 90 TX state parks)-otherwise it's $17 per night plus a $3 per person daily entry fee. Sites are generous dirt/sand/dead leaves areas with a picnic table and fire ring. The whole park is loaded with different types of tall trees and low vegetation. There were abundant types of birds flitting about. The night sky is very dark so the stars are brilliant. All the facilities were in good condition and the park staff was very friendly and helpful. There are miles of multi-use and hiking trails. We could hear the power plant and the trains but their noises were in the background. This campground is located about four miles from small town Tatum where there is a very nice grocery store and a couple of restaurants. The park does not have public Wi-Fi access. AT&T and Verizon service was full bars of 4G LTE. We received 15 over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. - DD Rolling Ranch

I lived in this park for about six months and I am very glad I moved to a different park (Shallow Creek RV Resort in Gladewater, TX). This was basically privately owned land that the owner had put many RV sites on. It was not well kept, had all dirt roads that were VERY bumpy, and some of the residents were very loud. I used the laundry facilities once and never did again because my clothes stunk after they were done. They were very nasty facilities. The trees are pine trees and dripped all over my trailer. I am still working on cleaning up the mess. The owner is very strange and has a lot of rules that no one seems to follow anyway. The sites are not paved in any way. I would not recommend staying at this park. Instead, try Shallow Creek RV Resort in Gladewater, TX. - A.J Meals

Nice clean quiet RV park. Self-contained RVs only, no toilets or showers. Long graveled sites, room for my disconnected truck in front of my 40' 5th wheel. Back-in, no pull-thru's, no shade. Free Wi-Fi, but not fast. Verizon cell data is good. Laundry room has limited hours. Some long-term residents, but not junky. - B-n-F

Stayed just 2 nights on our way north through TX. Clean, quiet park with several long-term residents. Friendly owner/manager couple. Sites are slightly sloped but got close to a level for our rig. Just not much more than a basic campground but great at PA price. - Grumpier99

We stayed here for a couple of nights using the Passport America rate of $12.50. It is sparse, but clean. Sites are all back-in and not really level, but you can level. Owner was very nice. The park is on the outskirts of Henderson, but there was some traffic noise on our weekend stay. Nothing that would disrupt your sleep. The park itself was quiet and peaceful. - User2260

This is more of a Trailer Park/RV Park combination. Many sites are occupied by long term clients with some trailers in a state of deferred maintenance. Our site was large enough to accommodate our 40 ft 5th wheel and large truck with an 8 ft bed. The owner is very nice and helpful. The laundry room and bathroom/showers are in a secured building with a combination lock and are very clean. Laundry room has 6 washers and 6 dryers. The park is very quiet. This was an overnight stop for us. If we are in the area again I would consider looking for a nicer park but would overnight here again if nothing better is available. - Sheilas Reviews

NIce well maintained park with level sites/concrete slabs, very quiet with lots of room between neighbors, pet friendly with lots of green grass, in a clean country setting. The park owner & all employees are some of the nicest folks we have had the pleasure of meeting. We'll be back!!! - chiefbowen

We have been staying in this park for 3 months while traveling with my husbands job. Park is super clean and very quiet. Owner is located on site and is always a phone call away. He tries very hard to make sure campers are happy. Well lit up at night also. They have 3 fishing ponds for those wanting to fish. There is a swimming pool that is open during the summer months that is very nice. They have a huge camp house that allows campers to watch big screen tv or play pool or just hang out. He has recently had wifi repaired and i can actually say it is probably the best wifi we have found while traveling. He has 2 different types of spots. Regular and deluxe. We stayed in a delux spot which has concrete pad and also a carport to park your vehicle under. There is a storage building also that we put our deep freeze in. The lot has 2 electric meters and also 2 water hookups. There is a picnic table at all spots. Their regular spots also have a concrete pad to park on. They are also nice because they usually have more shade than the deluxe spots. Monthly rates were regular $270 plus electric and deluxe was $370 plus electric. It's a very nice park and one would have to decide wether they need the extra carport and shed the deluxe spot offers. I personally found it very useful having the carport due to the amount of rain we received and being able to still grill underneath it. I would highly recommend staying at Watts RV park in Gilmer Texas. - soney40

We are on our 2nd month stay here and our daily rate is based on that. This park nestled in rural East TX, has grown over the years and is always being improved on. It is about a mile off Hwy 155 and the road to the park has been repaved by the city. The park roads are gravel and whilst maintained, can be dusty and bumpy in areas. The sites, some hilly, have flat concrete pads with water, electric 30/50 and sewer hookups. There are shady and open spots to chose from. Some have a covered patio and shed near their pad. The free wifi serves our needs for now. No problem with Verizon cell phone coverage.
There are 3 ponds, one under reconstruction due to a leak and will be restocked later. There is a nice pool and a great clubhouse that has a kitchen, bathrooms with showers, library room, pool tables and comfy couches to watch the big screen TV. There is also an event center that can be booked for parties and gatherings.
The grounds have picnic shelters with grill pits. It is a lovely little park with piney trees, well mowed grass areas and quiet and peaceful. Everyone is friendly and helpful and it makes for a comfortable stay as we have to be here d/t a family illness. - TheWetzels

We planned to stay 1 night but stayed 2 nights. $40 2nights Passport America. The host was so helpful helping fix some damage to our bumper. Laundry room and washrooms were very clean. Small rv park 39 spots. It has a little pond and hubby did some fishing. Would recommend this small cozy friendly park. Cows in field next door and ducks in the fishing pond. If you are in the area for a stopover this place is very reasonable and friendly. - ColleenN

This park is just a RV park. Good for a couple of nights. Pull through sites, good WiFi. The whole park is gravel. There are a few permanent residents. The owners is nice and friendly. - Joceil

Small campground. This Campground is about 2 miles from I49 so no road noise at all. Not crowded. William, the owner, was very pleasant. Large gravel lot with fairly level spots. Full hook up. We had a pull through. There were 2 bathroom/shower rooms for each. They were small but very clean. Washers/dryers that I couldn't use. A good place to stay on our way to Louisiana. I would have given this campground 5 stars but when I headed to the shower and laundry at about 9 pm I discovered the bathrooms closed at 8 pm. I was ok I just showered in my trailer. I felt sorry for the guy near us in the pop up though! The owner lives next door. I believe maybe he could come back about 10 pm to lock up if he feels he needs to lock everything. Or perhaps a coded lock for the campers. - Farmhurley

The location of this park is convenient because it is close to town but other than that, it leaves little to be desired. It does have a clean laundry facility. However, it is located behind an auto-body shop and next to a phone company. Your surroundings consist of a small salvage yard, sheds, and equipment the phone company stores behind its building. Privacy fences would help improve the look a bit. There always seemed to be a smell of sewage in the air. Some cement slabs available otherwise it is gravel or grass. A lot of permanent residents stay there. There were 3 cases of theft in the park during our short stay. Bottom line, we did not feel safe. I don't think we would stay again. - PipelinersToo

My family just moved from this RV park and if you are staying in Henderson Texas this is the RV park you want to stay at. The owner is a Wonderful Christian man and is a Joy. My family stayed there for almost 2 yrs and I met so many wonderful people there. I also met a women that is my best friend, I miss her so much but got transferred back home. But let me tell ya this is a beautiful and wonderful place to stay. - sherrylwarner

The site was level, which was great. Our site had plenty of shade.
The park filled up quickly and, while there were a lot of other campers, we weren't jammed in together. There was ample room between sites.
My only complaint was the grass between sites was around a foot tall.
All in all, we had a great experience. - GaryWB

We booked for a week but had to leave after one night. Very low voltage on power pedestal. No one on duty to fix it on duty for 3 days. So we went somewhere else. Locals are pretty much in control here, rules are not applied as far as parking and number of people. A few long termers. Spaces are close together near the water and in area 2, but better up on the hill a bit. Boat launch for the campers. Water pressure ok. Very nice views of the lake from all sites. Gate attendant was competent but cranky. We probably would not stay there again. - Fixn2gocamp

We stayed here for the July 4 weekend. Park was not kept up like in previous years. Granted water level had been 12 ft. above normal as recently as a month earlier. NO grass had been mowed in awhile. Cigarette butts everywhere in our site. Fire pit wasn't clean. One thing we did notice was there were no summer maintenance volunteers as previous outings here, only the two men at the entrance gate. We will stay here again but wasn't real satisfied with the condition of the park considering it's a COE and maintained by our government. Duh, there's the problem!! - Juedoo
