This place is still a dump! We have stayed here before while visiting family in the area but not again. Grass unmowed, grass burrs throughout the park, and utilities dangerous. The list goes on and on. Lots of potential here but nothing is being done to improve things. On the other hand, the sites have a beautiful view of the lake, which is full now. It's heartbreaking to see such a pretty setting not being used. We will not return here. We camped at Paradise Lake Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice location off Highway 59. The campground has great potential but is a wreck! Two restrooms: One with a door kicked in. Both rated "D" for DISGUSTING! Office is a mess. Entry road is dirt/mud/potholes. Did not feel comfortable/safe. Would avoid if there was another choice. We camped at Paradise Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

Large sites, but not very private. With Good Sam Discount site was $22.50 per night. We had a back-in site on the lake. Entrance is easy to miss especially heading South on 59. You need to look for the red billboard for the Antique Mall an immediate left at that sign. If you are coming north on 59 there is a blue RV camping sign. This was a great location for visiting family in the area, but not where I would choose to camp typically. There appeared to be permanent campers in some areas of the park. The park was very quiet. I would stay here again. We camped at Paradise Lake Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here one night, visiting with family while passing through. Easy excess off 59 but you really have to look for the sign. Clean park but do not think it was worth the $32.00 a night. They put us in a pull through, stating we were too big for a backin. We did get wakened by the dump trucks in the morning, coming and going, hauling through the park. We camped at Paradise Lake Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is good for a overnight stay. We stayed on the lake, with our RV facing the the lake. The park is clean. It has some long terms campers. Our rate was a Good Sam discount price. Would stay there again. We camped at Paradise Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here one night on our way to New Caney, TX in our travel trailer. Campground was hard to find because it was a busy road and the sign was a small wood hand painted sign that only said RV and an arrow. The campground was down a narrow long lane and not visible from the road. The manager in the office was nice enough and gave us a Good Sam discount even though they are not a Good Sam campground - so we paid $32 after discount. There appeared to be some permanent campers in one section behind the office. We parked with one other camper in pull-through section that had 4 or 5 spaces. There were 4 or 5 campers in the back-in section on the side of the lake. The down side of this campground was a large empty run down building between the campsites and the office. The 'lake' was just there, nothing pretty about it. The showers were totally uncleaned and unkept; they were totally filthy. There was a lot of garbage inside and outside. They were single person men/women bathroom/shower. They looked so bad I wouldn't even go in, my husband stepped in and checked them out. Everything about this place looked run down and in need of repair. There was a porch light fixture on our power pole, but it wasn't working. We would not stay here again. We camped at Paradise Lake Resort in a Travel Trailer.
As several have stated, bad signage on hwy. and bad interior roads. We pulled into a site and the power would not come on. The man in the office was not real helpful but said he would call an electrician. We moved to a different site. On the other hand, had a beautiful view of the full moon over the lake. Could be a very nice park with some maintenance and updates. We camped at Paradise Lake Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
The sign leading you to the park is obscured by trees and buildings. The road in, is very narrow with trees in the way. Although they did have cable TV you had to have a cable box to view it. The area around the pond was very littered with trash. We will not stay here again. We camped at Paradise Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

Poor signage from the main road Hwy 59. Bad interior roads, no gravel or pavement, dust storm conditions. The speed limit is not enforced so the dust problem is even worse. Any shade sites are occupied by permanent worker-campers. But this is just another pitiful example of all the RV parks near Nacogdoches. You're better off boondocking in Wal-Mart's parking lot! At least there's no dust there. We camped at Paradise Lake Resort in a Travel Trailer.
As previously stated, very poor signage for the entrance. The sign is actually falling down. This park has no amenities other than the lake, so I don't know how they call it a resort. Very dusty, with great views of power lines. The woman in the office could not find my reservation and was not very friendly. I would not stay here again. We camped at Paradise Lake Resort in a Motorhome.
Entrance not well marked, road in was full of potholes. Cable TV was not good, overall campground was not clean or well maintained. It did have a nice view of the lake in the pull through which we paid extra for as we were there overnight and did not want to unhook our car. It was very dusty and the dumpster was off in the woods, so we brought our trash home. Would not stop there again for that price and few amenities. We camped at Paradise Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

As others have said, this place is hard to find (just an "RV" sign on the road--nothing with the campground name), and the roads are in poor shape. Some traffic noise. Wi-Fi too weak to use. The laundry facilities were not even hooked up. We camped at Paradise Lake Resort in a Travel Trailer.
We were underwhelmed at the appearance of this campground. It has a very hard entrance to find and all the gravel, including the road in, leaves a lot to be desired. We set up, tried the wi-fi on two different computers and got nowhere. Then we had an emergency and had to leave. The owner was most gracious in returning our money. That's not the norm and we appreciate his effort. For that reason alone, I'd give this place another shot. We camped at Paradise Lake Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an OK park. We have stayed here several times moving children in and out of Stephen F Austin University. The sites are all gravel with no shade. This time the water pressure in the park was miserable; only 25psi. I was disappointed given the new rates. Restrooms are clean enough for a guy camping, but I'm sure my wife would have a different opinion. We camped at Paradise Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

Quiet but not a resort. Lake is nice but internet wifi is weak and would not work in my coach. Lake is nice, but I would call this an over nighter. Did not use rest rooms or showers. We camped at Paradise Lake Resort in a Motorhome.
