6 Parks near Mexia, Texas

We stopped into this great State Park a few days ago on a trip home and found it to be fantastic.
We got a pull through site on the lake that was perfect. We stopped on a week day so there were only 2 other campers there that night. It was beautiful and quiet and a real joy to be there. LIke most Texas State Parks (but not all) they were water & electric sites and none have sewer hookups. There is a nice dump station.
Others have mentioned that you have to unhook your Toad before turning around in the cul de sac at the end of the road - and this is completely true. Like so many others it looked like we could make it but nope.
Now, if you came here on a weekend I imagine this park would be super crowded and a completely different experience. But on a weekday in the Fall it was great.
Nice camp host, very nice and clean bathrooms and showers were an nice addition as well. Again, on a busy weekend they are probably way too small.
We highly recommend this place if you are anywhere near Waco, TX and looking for a good place to stay. - Creativepart

Very nice park. The nature exhibit is interesting. Today we can still enjoy the work of the CCC boys of the '30s. Please note for a trailer or motorhome that the farther you go the tighter the space. The end loop ONLY can accommodate about 25'. If the spots are full a 30ft +/- trailer is most difficult. Great place to stay and relax. - REO

Very small, but very nice park. Shade trees are all around. Half of the sites were fairly open and not so private, but have a great view of the lake. The other half nearest the turnaround are very wooded. Lots of the sites are very unlevel. I had three packs of "Legos" and I still didn't have enough to get it level. Great lake access and views. The fishing pier is very convenient to the camp sites and looked very popular. The staff were extremely courteous but yet unobtrusive. - TTU Guy

Nightly rate based on monthly stay There are a lot of work crews here, so it was quiet. No leash rules for pets, so there were a few dogs loose. And it was obvious you don't have to pick up after them either. Our site was not very level but wide enough. There is a fishing pond and laundry room, but we didn't use them. They do have a lot of nice cabins here. Will most likely stay again in the future as we have family nearby. - Tandgtucker

We used this campground as an overnight stop. Wasn't expecting much; didn't get much, but served it's purpose quite well. The price was a little on the high side. After being parked in a maintenance facility with just an electric hook-up, we appreciated having water and sewer, and a quiet campground for a change of pace. Sites aren't especially level, but we had no problems leveling with our jacks. Had called in advance for availability. Plenty of empty spaces. I think we were the only transients in the RV Park. The campground manager I spoke with told us all the sites were back-in, so no surprise there, and it wasn't a biggie to unhook the toad. - 22Trvl

Rate based on $150 per week electric included. Very friendly staff. Park well maintained. If pull though sites are critical like the other person rating this park you will be disappointed. The back in sites are easy to maneuver and about 50% of them are shaded. The cabins look very nice. However, we did not use them but saw housekeeping zipping around, seems like they would be nice. Would like to have had a few more cable channels but the basic took care of our needs. Laundry room was fantastic! We would definitely recommend this park. - BAB1002

We stayed at this park for two nights. As others have stated, you need "the code" to enter the park since it's gated. Someone may come around to collect money after you arrive, or they may ask that you drop it in the "honor" box. All of the sites appeared to be back-ins, with gravel. Our site was relatively level. There are some trees in the park that offer a bit of shade, but not all sites have trees near them. The WI-Fi worked well. Although a previous reviewer had stated there were no laundry or bath facilities, I believe this park does now have those, but we didn't make use of them. We would stay here again if we were passing through the area. - Guinness

This is a great place with no nonsense. Charging just $375 per month, with no hidden fees. Has cable TV, Wi-Fi, a pool, laundry and great people running the place. - tizwhizkid

This campground was very nice and clean, one phone call and the secret code and we were in. Payment is on the honor system though someone came through the park the next morning checking. The spot we got was wide enough for the motorhome and our unhooked trailer in the same spot. No pull-throughs, would have been nice to have but we managed. If we are in this area again we will stay here. - Bandit23

Great park right on Navarro Mills Lake. About 23 miles from nearest Walmart. Most of the sites have some form of shade. Relatively level, full hookups. Only issue was after 3 days we found we had "ants". We sprayed around the legs of our coach, but failed to spray around the sewer inlet. That's how the buggers got in! Park website states they have Argentine Ants, and they are right. Some of the sites are a little tight if you have opposing slides. Roads are a little narrow but we were able to maneuver with a 42' fifth wheel & dually. Shaded fishing pier, but costs $7/adult to fish. We have 3 dogs, and always have them on a leash. Other people don't obey leash rule and let dogs run loose. Overall, we'd go back again. - usamacdonald2

This is a large Park. Playground, swimming, fishing, boating and etc. The park was closed Friday thru Sunday as the surrounding lakes are closed due to flooding, but this park is high enough that the rise in water was not an issue. Gate Attendents are top notch, they check the park many times a day as well as a ranger. There are some trees, but most sites are in direct sun. It was hot when we stayed, 98 degress, with heat index of 108 so getting outsided after lunch was not acceptable unless you were in the water. A lot of history, as there is an old family cemetery in the campground dating back to 1838 as well as Dawson, TX, first town in the county and other historical markers. One negative is the Argentine ants. In some sites the ants will haul your RV to the next campsite! They will warn you about the ants, so take some type of ant repellent as most seemed to use Comet around their Jack pads and wheels and also anything that touched the ground. We did not have issues with the ants but we did see other that did. We will be back. - Gearitis

Very nice Corp park. We almost had it to ourselves for the 2 weeks we stayed. Part of the park was closed for winter. We enjoyed our stay very much. The bathrooms need to be updated but they were clean anyway. - TexasRVer

This is a nice COE park on Navarro Mills Lake. Our site was wooded, providing nice shade yet the lake was just 50 yards away. We stayed 2 nights in site #22 which is a long back-in site with electric and water but no sewer. There is a boat ramp, fishing pier, and sandy beach area nearby. We struggled to get a satellite signal due to the trees, but if you have enough coaxial cable to place the dish nearer the lake the trees thin out and you can get some reception. We did have full LTE cell and data reception via AT&T and lots of TV channels via OTA antenna.
We enjoyed our stay here and would gladly return. - texasAUtiger

Beautiful park about 20 miles sw of Corsicana on Hwy31. Turn at sign Navarro Mills. Sites are well separated, lots of trees, water and power at site. Quiet, clean. Bathrooms old, COE is at mercy of Congress' budget antics, so be kind. Two campsite loops; one with fishing dock is on quiet arm of lake, other is closer to main body (boat noise). Give the restrooms and large fenced leach field some distance when choosing site, the smells can travel. Great hosts, we'd stay here again! - User3415
