This is a very nice park with a great location to explore the Lake Livingston area. The reservation and check-in process was smooth, with an efficient and knowledgeable staff. Roads in the site are concrete and asphalt. It is big-rig friendly, but some of the turns in the "Tall Timbers" section are tight for bigger rigs. If you take it slow you will be OK. Also, some of the asphalt sections on the hills tend to get chewed up by the rigs but they get repaired quickly. Most sites are level with the exception of some of the sites at the bottom of the hill in the Tall Timbers section. We had to place blocks and take several trys to get the auto-level to work. There is ample space between sites. Sites have picnic tables and fire rings. Satellite service and Verizon cell phone service were both good. The park provides cable and that worked very well. Wi-fi can be spotty, but was better than most parks. The park has wonderful views of Lake Livingston, a clean, safe beach, a pool that is well-cared for, and an on site restaurant that is open some nights of the week and weekends. The park staff is very attentive to needs. Trash is picked up daily, the grass is cut, and rules are enforced. We had a relaxing time here and enjoyed the views and pool. We will definately return. We camped at Lake Livingston / Onalaska KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Local shopping is available for food in Onalaska. You may want to consider driving to Huntsville for supplies as that town has bigger and better stores. Try the Blue Duck in Livingston for a great meal, especially if you like Pork Chops. Indian Hill restaurant has good food and is a great place to watch sunsets on Lake Livingston.

we have been here a few times in recent years and wanted to come back for a multiple day stay. Our timing was perfect. In May, they were having a stay 3 days during the week (Sun-Thu) for the price of a 2 day stay. As usual, we were in the Tall Timbers section in a level, FHU, pull-through site near the bathrooms and laundry building. There are 2 other bathhouses in the park. The cable TV was good and our site was satellite friendly. Possibly because the park was not full, the Wi-Fi worked OK for our minimal (e-mail and web surfing) needs. In addition to being on the lake, there is a nice pool, a marina, a beach, and a restaurant. Once again, I see no recycling. Even at the normal rates, this park is worth it. We camped at Lake Livingston / Onalaska KOA in a Motorhome.

I was directed to travel along the road adjacent to sites 75 to 79, go past site 81 and back in to that site. That was impossible with a 45' DP. In trying to get past site 81, my tail pipe was on the ground and I had to remove the hitch for my tow car...it was stuck on the ground. I had to maneuver around, get the tail pipe free, the hitch off and go forward up and down two streets so I was heading west, then could back in without a problem. This has happened before, there are several scrapes and one deep gouge in the concrete. However, there was not room enough to comfortably park the tow car. Also, the tow cars parked in sites 79 and 80 blocked each other in with their tow cars. We camped at Lake Livingston / Onalaska KOA in a Motorhome.

This is one of the nicest camps we've stayed in and the value is excellent. Great family place. Spots are concrete and they all look level. Picnic table and hook ups good. Have cable. It was spotless. We did not hear traffic. We were in the Timberland part. This place is a Gem!!! We arrived after the office was closed and our packet was on the wall. Easy in and out! Don't miss this one. Pretty views of the lake. Dog area and great walking. We camped at Lake Livingston / Onalaska KOA in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Rate was for weekly stay (stay 6 nights and get the 7th free). This is by far the nicest KOA we have been to. It's located right on the shore of Lake Livingston and the views of the lake and sunset are spectacular. All sites are FHU with nearly 100 channels of cable included. Excellent Verizon signal. We stayed in site 38, a back-in site in the Tall Timbers section of the campground. This section is the farthest from the water but sits on a terraced hill to take advantage of the views. Interior roads are a bit tight, so you'll need to watch the turns to avoid scraping your tires on the curbs. Otherwise the campground is open with no trees to maneuver around. There is a fair amount of separation between sites, and each site has a fire ring and picnic table. You do get quite a bit of road noise from Highway 190, especially from the semis that frequent this road. You will get the least amount of road noise in the Surfside section since it's the furthest away from the highway. The KOA has nice amenities such as a pool/hot tub, small beach/swimming area on the lake, clubhouse, cabins, playground, volleyball court, tetherball, two boat ramps, fishing piers and a nice restaurant on site. There were plenty of individual private bathroom/showers, which were cleaned daily. They also have a nice laundry area with 3 washers and 4 dryers which worked well. The downside to this KOA is that they don't enforce their rules. We were kept awake until after 3:00 a.m. by our neighbors who were getting drunk, being loud and playing music. We were told by staff that we should call the police and that they have no one patrolling the campground during quiet hours. They also did nothing about the same neighbor who parked multiple vehicles in their site, one of which was inches from our slide and parked on our grass. On a positive note, the staff did allow us to use their ladder after a terrible storm came through that destroyed our awning. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would probably stay here again. We camped at Lake Livingston / Onalaska KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

There is a restaurant on site called Farmhouse on the Lake. The food is decent, but they are only open Thursday through Saturday (not sure if they have different summer hours). Walmart is 13 miles away in Livingston, but Brookshire Brothers grocery is located just outside of the campground.

The town has a grocery but not much else but 12 miles is Livingston. Best restaurant in area is here on the property overlooking the lake and marina. only 1 issue. The bridge highway 190 near by across the lake carries a lot of commercial traffic so there is a noise from it. Nice pool and grounds. Many 5 th wheel full timers. We were here with a Tiffin rally.

This was our second stay at the campground. Sites/roads are paved. We stayed in Site 53, which is a pull thru, level, with a patio and picnic table. The site did face the setting sun, which made sitting outside uncomfortable in the summer heat. Restroom/Showers are unisex, they were clean in the morning, but became less so during the day. Pool was adequate and there is a lake swimming area. Kids enjoyed bank fishing and actually caught a few fish. There is an onsite restaurant that gets good reviews. We would stay here again. We camped in a Motorhome. We camped at Lake Livingston / Onalaska KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a very well maintained, family oriented campground. Staff at check in were helpful and friendly. Interior roads are concrete and big rig access was average. The campground is terraced and nicely landscaped, we had a lovely pull in site with a pretty view over Lake Livingston in the Surfside section with plenty of space for our towed, a lovely shade tree and a fire ring, but not much privacy. Our concrete pad was wide and level and had a patio with a picnic table. However, we were allocated site 74 which has a buddy site 74a at right angles to it which is only about 40' long. On day 3 inexplicably a 35' fifth wheel and truck were allocated this site which made it impossible to get our coach out and made it difficult to maneuver our small towed in and out, we had to ask the truck owner to move when we left the following morning. The park was half empty at the time so there was no need to use this site, this rig was obviously way too big for the site. I pointed out to the office staff that site 74a was not capable of accommodating a rig much over 40' in overall length without restricting access to site 74, which points to inexperienced staff not understanding the site layout. Hopefully they will take note and adjust their booking systems accordingly. Until then beware if you are allocated site 74.

We were here over the weekend, so it was pretty noisy with lots of kids, radios blaring and boats on the water. If we stayed here again it would only be during the week when hopefully much quieter, and only for a couple of days at most. The bathrooms were modern but the one I used was dirty and had no toilet paper! The one laundry although clean, did not have enough washers and dryers for a campground of this size. There was no security gate and we saw a lot of folk just driving through to check out the campground. Pet friendly with a Kamp K9, pet walk and doggie bags with a disposal station. Wifi and AT&T were good. We camped at Lake Livingston / Onalaska KOA in a Motorhome.

Once again (see my 10/16 review for a more detailed review), we had an enjoyable stay at this park. Although on the expensive side, there are FHU sites with cable and WiFi. The pool and the lakeside setting offer plenty of recreational opportunities. We camped at Lake Livingston / Onalaska KOA in a Motorhome.

We were here a couple years ago and were happy to return. There are 3 sections of the park: Surfside down by the lake and pool is all back ins, Bridgepark by the lake and large boating parking area is also all back ins, and Tall Timbers in the terraced are away fro the lake by with great views is mostly pull through sites. There are also 4 cabins in the Surfside asrea. We had a FHU, gravel, pull through in Tall Timbers. Our site was right next to the main bathhouse (there are other bathrooms at the clubhouse and near the office) and laundry (only 3 of each machine) but that was not a problem because there were only about 20 RVs in the park. The cable TV is over 60 channels but we are still in the TV channel censorship area of the country - so no Comedy Central. Many sites appear to be satellite friendly. The Wi-Fi provider is the hated Tengo but it was worked OK since the park was fairly empty. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed the day we were here. The staff I dealt with was friendly and helpful. I saw no sign of any recycling. The price is a bit high but this is a very nice, well run KOA. We camped at Lake Livingston / Onalaska KOA in a Motorhome.

Price reflects weekly rate. Very nice park with views of Lake Livingston. Sites are wide, but concrete pads are narrow. My site, plus some others are not very level. Mine sloped from back to front. Water pressure and electric service is good. Nice dog park to let the dogs off the leash. Very clean park. There are sand burrs stickers in the grass that you have to watch out for when walking dogs and around your site. Verizon Service is 3 to 4 bars. WiFi is good. Kind of slow at night when more people are using it. Would stay here again. We camped at Lake Livingston / Onalaska KOA in a Motorhome.

The money was worth it to us, only for the fact we have a boat and can park it and use the boat launch for free. Overall, it's an ok park and kids (teens) are not allowed to drive golf carts in the park. They pick and chose when to enforce that rule. The lady in the office rushed me along at check in and did not really want to give information about the park. Kind of sad, when you want to know about the area and their changes.

Paid the extra for the waterfront site: well worth it. Great padded site with a private view of the lake. This was one of my favorite campgrounds that we visited this summer.
