I come to this park every first weekend of the month. The Canton Marketplace is only open the first weekend of each month. The Staff is amazing!! The manager is so sweet and she works with you. This RV park is nice, pet friendly and easy access to restaurants! I will be back in October! - Bay07

This park is actually in Wills Point about 9 miles from Canton but a quick drive to Trade Days on I-20. The park has gravel roads but is well maintained. Sites are level, wide, long and angled well so big rigs can get in and out easily. Nice pull thrus! There's a large dog area for walking the dog. We've been here before & I don't remember a pool so this may be new. Staff is very nice & helpful. It is close to the freeway but we didn't hear the noise because our air conditioner was on all the time. Good satellite reception, Verizon cell & air card service. We've been here before & will come back again. - Danni

Only 2 50 amp sites available. Very small park behind the hotel. There are a few trees for shade. Not much else in the way of amenities. OK for an overnight stay. Don't come during the first monday flea-market without reservations. Ask for a discount, they gave us a nice rate just for asking. - BigRigger06

This is a smaller Texas State Park on a lake that is reported to have a variety of fish to include Black Bass, catfish, perch and so forth. The RV sites are spaced nicely to offer some sense of privacy with trees and bushes offering additional privacy. The heavy recent rains have made the hiking trails muddy, but the few we walked offered a nice hike. The Park has a Park Police Officer who patrols the area and seems to keep a lid on noise. The nearest towns are small and only offer a bit more than gas and sodas. The Park is often full during nice weather and always during First Monday Canton. - Jim Butler

We had a rough start to our visit here. We were told that the office hours were from 8:00AM to 5:00PM. We arrived at 4:45 and were told that the lobby closed at 4:30 and they would not check us in, but we could go pick any site that was not occupied and to come back before 9:00 the next morning to check in. We drove in and picked site #20 which was empty and had no tag to indicate it was taken. It was tricky to get our 34 foot trailer into the site but we managed to do it and it had a nice view of the lake. We set up camp and enjoyed our first evening there. The next morning I went to pay and was told we would have to move to another site because a "local man" had already paid for that site for the whole week! What a disappointment since we had already set everything up! So we had to load up and move to site 47, which is nice but had no lake view. To make matters worse, the "local man" didn't show up to actually use his site until several days later!
In spite of all that, it is a nice park with sites that are well spaced, shady, and have vegetation to provide separation and privacy from adjacent sites. Some sites are level, while others require about 3 inches of leveling blocks. Our first site had good Verizon cell phone reception but poor TV reception, while the second site had good TV reception but poor cell phone reception. Water and electricity work well, although we did have a brief outage during a storm. They have several miles of hiking trails, but they were too muddy for us to make it very far during our stay. Pets and tents are allowed. - BrentB

Excellent Texas State Park. We were in back-in site #13. It looked small from the road, but easily accommodated my 37' 5th wheel and still had room to park my truck. Very private and great shade. Water pressure and quality good. Good 30A electric. Central dump station is tight, no sewer at sites. Nice, easy hiking trails. We would stay here again. - drfife

Would not call this a resort. The hosts were friendly and helpful. There were several junky looking trailers. Due to the drought Texas is in, the once nice lake is now dangerous looking with the tops of trees showing everywhere. Entry roads very rough, internal roads narrow and not very smooth. Have driven through this area before and it looked very nice, but not at this time. Probably would check it out closely before would stay here again. - bob and phyl

I agree: it has been many moons since this could be called a Resort. There was junk everywhere and junky transient people with junk everywhere. There is a beautiful lake and it's overrun with fishermen. This is a whooping great fishing camp, for the price. Just beware it is not a resort by any means. Much too pricey for what is offered. It is a Woodalls rated facility, but they have it all wrong. - kingfisher24

In my opinion this site should be for Emergency use only, unless you are towing a boat and planning to fish or go water skiing. It has been years since this park was a "resort", if ever. It is basically a fishing camp with RV sites for hookup. Small store on site which serves as HQ for selecting sites., but the store closes randomly for irregular periods of time. The after-hours telephone numbers for emergency support, don't work. You are also required to sign two forms which indemnify the operators against any liability whatsoever. A few of the sites near the shore line are nice. Lots of Hwy road noise and traffic from boaters at all hours of the night. No internet, no cable TV, although the local channels were received well. - User745

All sand sites, side by side. The pool was not usable and I don't think it ever will be. It's full of permanent sites and full of junk. Needs to be cleaned up as it's very poorly maintained. We would never go back. - mary beth

Not fun - the wifi is useless - will stay connected about 30 seconds at a time - if at all. The restrooms smell VERY bad - maybe they are clean (?) but the bad odor is a deterrent. The TV cable is only slightly better than the wifi - can connect to channels then suddenly you are watching SNOW! - The spots are NOT level - no where near level - in fact we had several blocks in place and still could not get even nearly level!! Some of the permanent residents are a bit different - wandering around with beer bottles in hand and probably didn't need another beer anyway. Just not a comfortable feeling at all. For your money......keep driving a little longer - there are newer parks and nicer parks not far away. - EllieMae Erskine

Access to the park going east entailed a U-turn on the busy interstate (dangerous). We reserved a select site away from the traffic noise at the rear of the park two months in advance. When we arrived they had given away our site despite having called them several times with updates to our progress getting there. Ended up having to squeeze into a site about 100' from the highway where most of the shade trees were but no sleep from the highway noise and construction going on at that spot. At the time there was a permanent resident parked there with a Pit Bull tethered outside his trailer with a light weight cord and several other permanents with clutter around their units taking up the prime sites with a few dogs running loose. It seemed to us that their utilities were installed on the wrong side of the very narrow sites for modern rigs and this limited the sites we could set up on. The sites were very close together. All sites are grass, the roads are gravel/paved and the utilities worked well. We stayed only one night instead of a few months there and found a better spot up the road for our summer exploring base camp. Definitely would not stay here again. - wheels

The manager was friendly and very helpful. This campground was nice and the facilities were clean and cared for. We were here for a rally and things could not have been better. The rain made things a little muddy but that was not the fault of the campground. We would return if this way again. - JWT

The rate reflects the 50% Passport America rate. The entrance is easily missed, it looks more like a driveway into someone's side yard and there is no signage visible for this park. The roads are gravel and wind in between the trees in the park so be careful when navigating. The sites have gravel pads and there is no rhyme or reason to how they are laid out. Our site, a pull-through, was plenty long enough but not very level front to back. The owners/managers and the work camper were all very nice but the park needs a lot of updating and sprucing up to be worth the full price of $40 per night. - wingerphil

Very friendly park with lots of 'walking around' room. Dogs are 'free to be' as long as you pickup after them. Close to the Canton restaurants, fuel, propane, & Walmart. Lots of trees but they are high enough and easy to avoid with RV roof. - leona mae

Waited until the last minute for First Monday Easter weekend. Took a chance since we would not be there most of the day. Park is really trying and still recovering from the 2011 drought and a 2013 tornado. Nice landscaping and gathering spots in progress. Mostly permanent residents with some overnight sites. Utilities good. Sites are gravel. Owners and park host very nice and helpful. Maintenance guy on site. A quiet park and really felt safe there. Pricey, but it was First Monday - 4 miles from town. - Perch151

A nice clean RV park with gravel pull throughs. Water, electric, and sewer hook ups where well maintained.
The park was full due to Canton Trade Days weekend. The wifi was a little slow.
The campground is about 7 miles west of Canton.
The campground does have a swimming pool, but not very big. - Jloftin

Warm welcome by the Host (Karen).
Easy to get into and out of off I20.
Gravel site which was level for a change, long and wide, no need to unhitch.
Showers were very clean and well kept and stocked also nicely heated or A/C.
Would stop here again when in the area. - robertjoy

Friendly and helpful staff. Easy in and out. Convenient to Canton First Monday Trade Days. We arrived after dark and very tired. Of all the open sites, we probably chose the only one that wasn't level. No problem...we leveled the 5th wheel and spent a very nice week here. Will stay here again if ever in the area. - Bryan&Susan

The RV park is on a peninsula across from the marina. This is a good family park. We would have given the park higher rating but the showers and bathrooms were at the marina and so far from the RV spots. Only johnny-on-the-spot are in the RV area. Very quite, good fishing, owners monitor park closely and nice beach in front of RV spots. - TexasRVer
Nov 2012 - $20.00
Cable and Air TV OK, no WI-FI. My 2012 Acer could not get connectivity at sites 3 and 5 next to motel, or 13 in the center. Wi-Fi OK in office. Bath house needs cleaning and maintenance. Urinal would not flush, paper and dead cockroaches on the floor and the hot water was barely lukewarm. Lock on Ladies Bathroom was broken. Only 3 sites were taken. We will not stay here again. - rossby

We came for the flea market and finding a place to stay was hard, Best Western had sites available. This place is definitely a last choice place, it is a stripe of sites behind the hotel. The site pads are asphalt and although ours was level it was old, not in great shape. There is grass (more like weeds) next to the site and a very warped table. The sites are wide and they do have some long one for big rigs. The free Wi-Fi works well. Overall the RV park need a lot of tender loving care, but the reasonable rate makes it good for an over night stay. - hapicamper

This is a great bargain at $21 plus tax! The restrooms and showers were very clean and spacious. I have excellent Wi-Fi from the hotel at lot 2. They warn you ahead of time but select a back in on sites 1 through 7 for good WI. There is no complementary breakfast now. The park lanes are narrow but it is not a huge problem unless you are a big dog towing. The pull through sites are 60 feet plus. We stayed here in Motor home towing a Saturn which we used to go to the Trade Days goat rope. There are only 4 campers in this park tonight. We came here after turning down Mills Creek because they wanted to sock us with a $5 fee for Wi-Fi. No way Jose! The entrance is in a very busy area. Take the wide concrete path between the Shell and Chevron stations. There is a RV sign further south but it is unknown where this leads. - rossby

The site we had was a dump, junk cars, boats and motorcycles on the next site, trash around the permanent trailers nearby. Permanent mobile home next to our site had a tied out dog the left his droppings all over our site. Uncapped sewer connection on our site. Price was for holiday weekend, we left the next morning even though we had paid in advance for two nights. Would never stay here again, the cable and Wi-Fi did work. - texas5vr

We camped here for he weekend while visiting family in Tyler. Office staff very friendly and helpful. We camped on site 2A. The site was very uneven and you had to go over a large possible speed bump to get into it. Too many full time permanent residents in the lake front views. Did not feel very safe in the area. Looks like they are trying to clean it up. Don't know if we will be back. - PJ Beans

This park had just experienced rain and it was very muddy. Even though the sites had been asphalted at some time, mud covered them. Spaces were tight with very little, to no room to park. With the slides out, there was no more than about 3' between rv's. The owner/manager was very friendly & helpful. The park tended to get loud at night with parties. The lake view was nice, but limited. There was no Wifi even though it was advertised that there was. We would not stay there again. - hallelujah road
