Price reflects $24 camping (30 amp) + $7 for one person day-use fee. (Get the parks pass to save on day use fees and a couple of coupons for camping.) The layout of this park is very strange. You must drive over the spillway (running water on the road) to get to the campgrounds. Several camping loops: tent, 50amp, 30amp and equestrian. No sewer at the sites, but there is a dump station. We arrived after 4:30pm, instructions say to pay in the morning thus didn't have the problem of picking and then not fitting as lots of spots will be tight for larger rigs. Once in the site, it is very spacious with fire ring, grill, and picnic table on concrete slab. RV is parked on asphalt, but the ground was sand. No TV channels and no Sprint signal, 2 Verizon bars. Bits of trash all over. Water is opaque brown. Good wildlife viewing. It was quiet. Walking the lake side trail, lots of trash, uneven due to walking on it while wet, and then ended in water much sooner than illustrated on map. More about the layout issues... Only the northern most equestrian camp loop has the trail head for their trails. It is quite a hike from any other camping loop. Didn't matter to us, since the trails were closed! To get to the trail head for the Trailway (former railroad tracks, 20 miles total), it is 2.6 miles one way from our 30amp loop through the spillway. We could only go east on the Trailway; the westward direction was closed! I didn't take points off for closed trails, but would be nice if they were more accessible from your site than having to load up the car and drive to a trail head. We camped at Lake Mineral Wells State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This State Park is close to Dallas - Fort Worth so we were surprised as to how nice it is. The Park's staff was friendly and helpful. Please note that you are required to pick your campsite from a map and then go to that site. If you don't like it, then you have to return to the Park's HQ. At this time of the year, it was cool and we were the only RV in our section of the Park. There are at least 5 small fishing docks around the edge of the Lake and of course a rock climbing area which is popular. The camp grounds and park were clean and free of litter. We saw many birds and 8-10 deer in or near our campsite. We'll certainly be back. We camped at Lake Mineral Wells State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Marine store that rents small boats and various supplies. There is also a rock climbing area that is popular in this area of Texas. In addition, there are numerous well-marked hiking trails.

Rate reflects second night 1/2 off with Texas State Park Annual Pass and $7 per person per day entrance fee, normally $26 per night for electric/water hookup. Nicely spaced and private campsites, screened by trees. Many miles of hiking trails, although many were closed due to recent rains. Most sites appear fairly level. Park ranger at entrance was helpful and efficient. Would stay here again. We camped at Lake Mineral Wells State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. We don't require much. We went for privacy, peace and quiet and got plenty and saw many deer. I didn't rate the park a 10 because many of the sites are narrow, with trees close to the sides and rear. We were not able to open our awning. We explored other sites and found a couple that would be better. Our trailer is 32 feet. We camped at Lake Mineral Wells State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stay at about 10-12 Texas State Parks a year and find them to have the friendliest people ever...except at Minerals Wells. We have been there twice in a year, and both times have had to deal with a "grump" at check-in. Not a big deal, just not how you want to start your vacation.

Other than that, great park. Tons of trees make most sites very private. Most driveways are long, but narrow. Very limited AT&T service past the check in station. No playground for kids, but a great lake for canoeing or kayaking. Lots of deer and wildlife.

Will return, but not looking forward to meeting the staff again. We camped at Lake Mineral Wells State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice park. The sites are large and well separated. The restrooms were spotless. Unfortunately there isn't anywhere to put your stuff in the shower stalls where it won't get wet except for a small hanger. The lake level is so low due to the drought that the swimming area is unusable. The boat ramp is also closed. We camped at Lake Mineral Wells State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We like this park. They have a dump station available. It is quiet and the sites are roomy. You can fish for free on the lake. You must pay the daily charge of $7 a person for each day you camp. You might be better off buying the Texas park pass for $70 which covers everyone in your vehicle and is good at all parks. We stayed three days this visit.

We came here for the rock climbing for our grandsons to enjoy. Bring your own gear and be prepared to sign a waiver. Climbing area is closed during wet weather. Live Oak campground has 50 amp hookups and lots of privacy provided by the heavy brush and trees around the campsites. Plateau campground has 30 amp hookups and less brush so the campsites are more open. If you have children you might prefer this area since you can see them if they wander off. Both areas had all campsites paved and level and some sites were waterfront. The bathrooms were OK. Not really clean, but not dirty either, just OK. Had to drive up to the office to get Wi-Fi. Office staff was friendly and helpful, but one employee in the field was unpleasant and kept telling kids to get off the rocks. Go figure. Would have rated this park a 10 if not for this guy and the so so restrooms. We camped at Lake Mineral Wells State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park as sites are spaced far apart and level. We could not see our neighbors on either side due to the trees. TV reception not available due to trees limbs, but will come back. Do not use google maps as they send you to the wrong side of the park. We camped at Lake Mineral Wells State Park in a Motorhome.

Typical (wonderful) Texas State Park. A great many of the parking sites have been leveled (often a former complaint of LMWSP). The newly leveled sites look great. Power at our site (58 Live Oak) was 50A/30A/15A. Our 30A outlet did not work, so I connected to 50A with an adapter. Sites are VERY private. Park Police are very vigilant and park visitors are a very quality group. The restrooms were typical (nothing to write home about). Some are just restrooms so you may have to walk quite a ways for a shower. The lake is a joy - fishing, boating, kayaking. Trails are all over the place but with a little rain before our arrival, the mountain biking was a muddy mess and those trails are six foot wide horse trails (boring) anyway - wish this park had a single track. The hiking trail on the lake is very nice. The rock climbing was not available due to water on the rocks even days after the rains. This is one of our favorite Texas State Parks. We cannot wait to stay here again. We camped at Lake Mineral Wells State Park in a Motorhome.

Park restroom facilities were down the day we arrived and were not working until 5 p.m. The restrooms were poorly maintained, showers are semi-private. We will stay at a private RV Park when next visiting Mineral Wells. We stayed in the Plateau Camping Area. We camped at Lake Mineral Wells State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park has well-separated sites, some of which are not too level. The Live Oak campground is all 30/50 amps and costs $25 per night; the Plateau campground is 30 amps and costs $20. There is very good walking and bicycling. Shower water was hot and abundant, but the showers are only semi-private. We camped at Lake Mineral Wells State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful state park. There were deer in my front yard and the lake in my back yard. The sites are well done and mostly level. It is quiet and peaceful. I would come back. I recommend sites #59 or 64 for the best lake views. Both would accommodate large rigs. I can see that it would be very busy in the summer. There are good bike and hike trails and rock climbing here. Be sure to visit Clark Botanical Gardens while in the area: the best I have seen across the US. We camped at Lake Mineral Wells State Park in a Motorhome.

Great Texas State Park with level sites, lake view, and shade. Park ranger was great helping us find a good spot for our motor home. Very clean park. Kids loved swimming in the lake Restrooms are clean but could use a remodel. We will be back to this great park. We camped at Lake Mineral Wells State Park in a Motorhome.

I love this park; it's one of my favorite places to visit. While there, spend some time at the climbing wall, it's beautiful and if you go down into the pit (there are stairs) it is a cool respite from the heat. We camped at Lake Mineral Wells State Park in a Travel Trailer.
