6 RV Parks near Mexia, Texas

Can not stop talking about Fort Parker State Park to anyone who will listen. We fell in love with it from first sight. Well maybe not first sight, the road into the park is in need of repair. Very rough. And all of the grounds at the Park office are grown up but I might be that they are waiting for the wildflowers to got to seed. The Park Rangers were super friendly, all of them. Once you got to the RV loop the lake side views are outstanding. And well cared for. Our RV site was right on the water and we loved it. A perfect site. Sunsets for majestic every night. Fishing was available all around the camp, very nice fishing dock, well lighted for night fishing. There is a nice boat dock and also canoe rentals are available. There is a nice community center for rentals. And also screened shelters that look very nice. Lots of hiking trails, bike trails. Grills at each site, very nice concrete picnic tables at each site. Very clean restrooms and showers although we did not use them. We thoroughly enjoyed the little nature center was educational and entertaining. Nice history lesson on the CCA and the park history. Very sweet and helpful couple who run the Nature Center and work the grounds. I can't wait to return to this amazing state park. - True Texas

Fort Parker is not a big state park. There are less then 30 spots for overnight stay. It is on the Navasota River and Fort Parker Lake. It is quiet and the hiking trails are easy. You can enjoy a picnic lunch and fish. We love the serenity of the place. There is Mexia and Groesbeck close by if you run out of supplies. This is one of our favorite places. - Cirrus

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

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

We just stayed one night as we were passing through but it's a nice campground. We MUCH prefer state, national and especially COE campgrounds over private when we travel. - PegL

We came here for two nights becore continuing to our preferred campground which was full over Easter weekend. The sites looked like they hadn't been mowed in a month and the grass/vegetation was up to my dog's chest. The hookups were on the wrong side of the side so we were forced to run our hoses under the rv so our door could open toward the lake, our picnic table and fire ring. On the plus side, the water is pretty. Waiting to see if the argentine ants carry us off. - Kato52

Me and my husband stayed the weekend at this beautiful gem of a park. Spacious camp sites. We stayed at #4 site. Plenty of privacy for us. Few dogs barking but that was ok. Drive way is steep so I suggest to go up it carefully. The bathrooms are bathrooms. They were ok. Will definitely be back. Adorable Picnic cover on concrete pad with table!! - Chuck and Teresa

It was a really nice spot, but the electrical box was confusing. The 30 amp had a breaker, plus there was a 50 amp breaker. But we had no electricity first night because we didn't realize you had to flip the 50 amp breaker to get juice to the 30 amp outlet. Some say that is a dangerous combo.
Also, they have an infestation of ants. They gave us some spray, which we used around the tires and jacks, but it rained, and we forgot to spray. Thus, ants invaded the trailer and crawled on my face in the night. Not pleasant. - Martha Goudey

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
