Good little park to stay at. It would definitely be on your list if you had young children - they would love all the sights regarding dinasours. We only stayed here for 2 nights midweek and were kind of mystified as to why we were given the site we got. First of all, it was pretty had to get into with our 32 foot RV, as it was not angled at all - straight in with no ability to use space across to maneuver. This was really odd when there were so many sites that were vacant the entire 2 days we were here - closer to the river and easier to get into. The trails were pretty good - but signage was somewhat lacking (green paint on rocks instead). Had to cross the river on foot (no bridge) and perhaps this is easier when water is lower, but made it a bit difficult to walk after having totally soaked feet. Luckily we had wet shoes and changed - but others we met didn't. Very pretty and very interesting place, all in all. Loved the stone fire pits - awesome! - Scotty 5154

This is the most quiet campground I've ever stayed in. The weather was unusually warm for January and the campground was completely full. At 8pm both nights, I walked my dogs and could not heard a sound - no traffic noise in the distance, no noisy neighbors, no airplanes overhead - just peaceful quiet.
Plenty of maneuvering space for my 40ft 5th wheel (all sites are back in). My site was smooth and level. Several small parking lots to park your tow vehicle or toad. Sidewalks through the trees to the restroom/ shower building so you don't have to walk all the way around the loop if you prefer.
VERY clean restrooms, showers, dump station, and no litter seen anywhere.
MANY very nice walking, biking, hiking trails. I didn't visit the campground store.
Courteous and professional park employees. - 2bearbill

This is a great park. The sites are level, with good shade and large enough for big rigs. I think all the sites are back-in. Water and electric are available. There is a dump station, but no sewer at the sites themselves. My site was fairly open but other sites have very good privacy. The campground was about half full on a weekday and very quiet. The restrooms and showers were very clean. - Teardrop11

Gorgeous park with great facilities. Bathrooms are spacious and clean. Sites are spacious and pull-through. Management and staff were courteous. Great location for seeing some small town Texas. Pool is awesome. - lukqbwr4

Could be a really nice park. However, please understand. This is a family campground! Do not expect peace and quiet. Kids running through yards even after "quiet" hours. Loud beer parties while kids run unsupervised. No one picks up their dog poop. Generators ran around the clock in the dry camping area! For the most part the staff was VERY accomodating, however, there are several who have attitudes and forget who affords them this "job". No cable and TV reception is sketchy because Glen Rose is down in a hole. Lots of work being done on the park, they are working to improve it. However, that equates to lots of noise even on the weekends, so no real break from that. They do have a nice fenced area for dogs, but one of the workers uses it for their personal dog pen, so good luck finding it empty. Utilities do work well, water pressure is high. Restrooms are very clean, but could use a little sprucing up. Not sure I would stay here again. There is just not much to choose from in the area. - 2ndtimearound

We have stayed at Tres Rios 3 x's this year. And have loved every stay. The front campsites are for public month leases, the middle and back sites are for members if the ocean canyon properties. They allow Coast 2 Coast members to stay twice a year. Lots has been written in the reviews about their amenities, so I won't expound on that. Is a comfortable and homey resort. We love the beauty there and walking paths, nice people, nice laundry, playground, etc. We would stay there again but have met our limit for the year. - Susiecamera

Clean, quiet, large, grassed pull thru spaces. I was able to park my 40' Class A with an 18' trailer attached in space and still had room in the front to park a vehicle. Picnic table, gravel-packed roads, well-maintained. I observed maintenance crews out weeding campsites. Laundry available with a workout room. Large game room with pool tables, kitchen area, bathroom and TV area with restriction to 18 years and older. Office staff are very friendly and efficient during check in. I stayed under Coast-to-Coast affiliation so can't speak to per night rates for public camping.
Close access to local amenities and Ft. Worth or Dallas.
I would stay here again. - kihei7

Beautiful park with many lovely stone structures in a gorgeous setting on the bluff that overlooks the merge of three rivers (Brazos, Paluxy and Squaw Creek). There is direct access to the river and fishing, boating/tubing/rafting. Miles of walking and biking trails, a swimming pool, rec hall with pool tables, TV area, kitchen and card games, and five washers and dryers ($1.25) in the laundry room. Playgrounds and a children's rec hall with activities, even in the winter. There is a beautiful dining room/ restaurant that could handle 300 plus for a private function. (Except for private functions, the restaurant is only open in the summer time.) They have large and small cabins for family reunions and weddings.
Roads are paved. Sites are level grass/dirt and were in perfect condition when we were there, but my husband prefers gravel or concrete for when it rains. Most sites are spacious, have a picnic table and at least one mature pine or pecan tree that is very tall (not a lot of ground shade.) No cable but Wi-Fi signal is strong.
This is a gated, private membership park (with some affiliation with Coast -to-Coast Resorts) that does allow some non-members when space allows. We received our invitation with our purchase of a motorhome and really enjoyed our visit. Our saleslady, Janna, was charming and efficient, gave us a wonderful tour, and answered all our questions. We did not purchase a membership because we are not full-timers and spend most of our RV time in the parts of New England and Canada where there are no member resorts. (They do have resorts in Canada and New England - just not where we have friends or relatives.) We met folks who were members and full time RVers who rotate thru the member parks, save money and schedule their favorite sites (and seasonal activities) months in advance. They mentioned they love the staff and activities at the different resorts. - Mom_of_Two

This is a good state park and is well maintained. However, I limit my rating as several of the Premium sites are not good. We camped in site 57 which was a scenic site on the water but the pad was on such an angle we could not level the motorhome. Finally went to Wal-Mart and bought 6 pavers to put under the rear jacks in order to level (the rear tires were about 6" off the ground on both sides). Site 58 across from us was the same as far as unlevel. In addition the sewer connection was some distance from the pad and uphill ??? Not sure who laid this campground out but it was not a 'camper'. WiFi in the bath house didn't work most of the time and when it did it was a weak signal. Phone reception was poor and trees prevented sat reception. North Creek campground (no sewer) was better.... I would not recommend this park nor will I stay here again. - MovinOnDownTheRoad

Stayed here for a week. Full hookups all taken on a busy weekend. Stayed in Keyhole site #30. No problem getting sat reception. Easy check-in as a drive up with no reservations. Site was w/e only. Good placement of services. Sewer site services placed in easy to access. Will stay here again. Stayed in Cleburne SP in a motorhome. - mdmnkcm

We stayed here to attend the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth. Our campsite was incredible! It backed right up to the lake, and was huge. We are going to make a return trip in warmer weather. The full hookups were easily accessible and appeared to be recently updated. - Major Dad

Dry, very very dry, will be your first impression of this park after you get through the bumpy ride to the office. It is very obvious this park needs TLC right from the start. Roads are very rough. No Wifi or internet access, cell phone service good, shared “yards” (units face one another) and power poles are shared. Electric is site assigned, although I am sure if a 30 & 50 amp were on the same pole regardless of site assignment a “user” would use their preference if they arrived first. Laundry Facilities were clean; $1 to wash or dry. Restrooms, showers were clean and appeared to be recently remodeled with water saver shower heads. Fishing on Lake Whitney is fee based. $10 per vehicle and $6 per person, $3 per person at Lake Whitney State Park, and / or a 5 mile drive from the RV Park. There is no fishing or lake access on the park property. Although we do not play golf, we took a drive through and the golf course appeared bristly and dry. Looking like it hadn’t been watered all summer just like the rest of the park. There are an abundance of rude “permanent” residence, in RV’s, travel trailers, and mobile homes. Most are parked under “Texas Canopies” as they call them. The managers say they have new owners. They need “new” something, ie owners, managers, “attitudes” of what an RV Resort should be. We do not recommend this park, other nice parks in the area. - Full-Timer RV'er

A clean campground. Good for a rest stop only: no frills, no trees, and remote from shopping. We stayed two days, and will return. - jeluttrell

This camp has seen better days. There are no trees for shade. Camp in the open. Very windy site. No frills, just simple camping. We stayed one night and moved the next day to the state park. - Big Ed

We were at Lake Whitney State Park near Whitney, Texas in site 26 The Horseshoe Loop (sites 1-51) have full hookups for $24/night. Beautiful wooded sites. Most sites in Horseshoe loop are pull throughs. Many sites can accommodate large RV's but be mindful of the trees. They have 3 other loops with water and electric that are closer to the lake. The lake is full and looks great. There is a Brookshires grocery in Whitney and a David's grocery just outside the park on Hwy 22. We've camped at this state park many times and will definitely return. - drfife

Very nice state park - it was full on the weekend we camped. Lots of pull thru sites, however we got there late and had a back in. We had site 21. Their back ins are wide and short. We had to park our truck next to the camper making it tight. Family camping with us in site 19 had a 5th wheel and had to park awkward to fit in their site. Pull thru sites were long and spacious. Lots of trees. Picnic table and fire ring at each site. Lots of open space for kids. Nicest sites are on the lake but the full hookups like we had are not. Whitney is a short drive and there is a Brookshires and other small town shopping. We look forward to camping here again but the key is to get a pull thru. Nice walking trails. - CIndy Davis

Overall this was a nice place to stay. I prefer a little more wooded. But that's just personal preference. Big downside was we paid an arm and a leg to stay here. We had an extra vehicle and a couple of extra people (We have 7 children), so we paid out to wazoo in extra charges. Also, they knew that we have a huge rv, yet tried to squeeze us into a tiny spot, even though the park was practically empty. It was not nearly big enough for our rig alone, not to mention our cars. We decided to change spots first, then go to the office and inform them. We didn't think this would be a problem since there was literally 2 other rv's in a loop of 50 sites. It's not like there was a line of campers at the gate. Well we got chewed out by a ranger. We ended up with a huge beautiful site in the end and thoroughly enjoyed the rest of our week long stay there. Just unfortunate it started off rough. Saw lots of deer and turkey. Would definitely return. But now we know to request our favorite site when we check in to avoid any run-ins with the overzealous Rangers. - Thomasfamily

I stayed here for one night and luckily was the only camper staying there. Lots of large trees and many spots right on the lake. Really spacious spots and easy to park. Also, herds of deer were milling around the campers. I would like to come back to spend more time and visit the park. - ProRVer

This park is good for bike riding and walking. Some sites have a great view of the lake. Access to the park is easy coming from the east. - glbaker44

This is a COE campground so it accepts Golden Age Passports. There are two campgrounds on the lake operated by COE. The west side was closed for the season when we were there. There were large level sites with nice views of the lake. The bathrooms were 1950 cinder block and nasty looking. Still we would go back to this park since we don't use the bathrooms anyway. - slowpez

They must have named this park E-Z Duzit for the road out in front. You must take it E-Z. We enjoyed this park very much the owners were very nice. There was a group of class A motorist that were traveling together that pulled in just after us. And the park was full. We were envious of the class A's they just push a button and they were level. We had a wonderful view of the countryside.The highway is down the hill and we heard NO noise after 10pm. We will stay here again. Enjoyed the Cafe the Koffee Kup in Hico. It is very good 12 different pies. Donuts that were like small tires on a shopping cart. Good food and nice people in all places that we stopped. Give it a try. - Mawmawof10

Nightly rate reflects TACO discount, otherwise $20 a night. Quaint, "in the country" feeling Mom-and-Pop operation with a friendly owner. Clean, bare-bones, older park with level gravel/grass sites; W/E on side, sewer at rear. VERY, VERY ROUGH road getting to the park, at the park office and into the park -owner escorts to site. Laundry is one washer & one dryer, but they are clean and work! 2 bar cell reception, over the air TV (HDTV) good, wireless excellent. Some road noise, but quiet at night. Suggest you call the owner to let her know you are coming, as the office does not seem to keep "regular" hours. We were the only ones in the park so it was very open although if full, it may be crowded since some sites are close to one another. Owner-provided directions to get here may seem confusing but the park is relatively easy to find IF you keep your eyes open. Even with all the negatives listed, I prefer to stay in this type of park rather than a resort-style RV park with cable/Wi-Fi, sparkling showers and 300 rigs packed like sardines next to one another. I would not make this a destination, but if in the area, I would return. - Mike E

Small state park in need of some funding. Free WiFi but it was slow. Good reception for Verizon. Have stayed there before and will again. - rockhill

A smaller State Park on a small lake contained entirely within the Park. The Park has a very nice fishing pier and a good many hiking trails that are well marked. The full-service campsites are all pull-through and very close together. The Park has Park Police who were often visible. Camp Hosts clean each campsite after folks leave to include the firepits. A lovely Texas State Park. - Jim Butler

Beautiful location with a no-wake lake. At the top of the Hill Country, the views are fantastic. After a rain, the water runs over the limestone ledges.
You won't find a more friendly or helpful staff anywhere! - Dis466

We usually like staying at COE parks and expect them to be rustic; however, this one was pretty run down and was in need of maintenance, mowing, etc. Our gravel site was somewhat unlevel, but not so bad that our automatic levelling system couldn't get us level. The restrooms/showers were filthy, and shower heads were missing in both the ladies' and men's restrooms making showering most difficult. We would not stay here again. - golfkitty

There are many deer and turkeys that visit you daily and some of the greatest sunsets over Lake Whitney. The sites are level, partially shaded, and within view of the lake , with distance between them. - tcurex

We were in the "older" part pull-through campground. Good shade, but difficult to get into and pads are short, at a bad angle and not level. Very pretty area. We would camp there again, just be more selective of our site. - mcguyvered
