3 Parks near Pittsburg, Texas
Aug 2015 - $44.00
This is a "east" Texas RV Patk and apparently won some awards for best in the area.
It is right on the water and across the street from a restraint/bar/gas station. Park itself seemed looked after. Service not great. 20 min on hold, then forgot about us(we could hear them talking). Phone off hook for 2 hrs. Greeted with "go find yer spot" after pulling in. Not rude, but no service.
Good number of full time rvs at the waterfront. It's a full party spot on a summer Friday. Lots of smoking.
10 year limit on rvs... Maybe....
If you want quiet and no-party, this isn't it. It is beer, bait, and ammo... Which is fine.
Lakefront yes. Boat access yes. Karoke yes. - cb1000rider

Rate was $12.50 for Passport America. Just an overnight stay, and had a long fairly level pull-through, so did not have to unhook toad. This looks like a fairly new park, with still some work to be done. That being said, not a bad place. Have some fulltimers, but all the RVs are in good shape, and sites are clean. A little off the beaten path, but would stay here again. They also have a small restaurant/bar across road at marina. - JJ & CC

We stayed for 37 days in this park, and for the most part, it is a very nice place to spend some time. With that said, April and May are months that include the Spring transitional weather patterns, which create some problems. Site #9 turns into a mud hole after rains, and rain it does. The lake rose four of five inches during our stay. However, most sites have grass (ours did not) on either side of the pad. Also, if you plan on staying here for any length of time, ask for a site that is not located under the tall pines. Again, this is particularly true in the spring when the sap starts to run and the winds howl during thunder bumpers. I'm going to have to do some major clean up on our roof and sides of our coach from dripping pine sap, plus we had a two foot limb fall on the roof. Just hoping I don't ruin the clear coat. The lake is heavily fished, but fishing is fair to good. We were here for the bass fishing, using an inflatable boat. We had one week of good weather with light winds that allowed us to get on the water, and during that time we caught a good many bass, keeping only those that were 14 to 15 inches long and weighing in around 1.5 to 2 pounds. We caught lots of fish that were under 14 inches and several in the 3 to 5 pound range. The area offers everything you need, sans RV repair for motorhomes (there is for trailers and 5'vers) WalMart is 13 miles away, but a very easy drive. Not much in eateries, but if TexMex is your thing there are plenty of those. I don't recommend any in Pittsburg, but Mt.Pleasant has some good ones. If you go to Gilmer, do NOT eat at the Chinese Buffet. All in all, this is a nice campground, the staff is friendly, and they keep the sites clean and in good to fair shape. Don't expect much from their free WiFi, as it doesn't work most of the time, and when it does it is slower than a sleeping snail. - Darfantin

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this RV park! A very clean and safe place to stay. They offer free laundry. The laundry room is secure and spotless at all times. They also have free shower rooms that are also keep neat and clean. Very pet friendly! They recently added a fenced in area for your pets to run. There is a host that lives on site but the owner is there almost daily as well. The owner planted several trees for shade during our stay. There is a small park with a paved walking track and nature walk just minutes down the road. Easy accessibility to groceries, gas, churches, schools, parks, and shopping. We wished we could have stayed longer! - PipelinersToo

The old man who was host was very rude, the prices were jacked up due to a pipeline in the area, and bathrooms were nasty. - jerseyvillian

This is a quiet, well maintained, and friendly state park. The campsites were clean and appeared to be well maintained. The hiking trails were easy to follow and well marked. There are several places to fish including a trout pond and a fishing pier. The park's staff were very pleasant and helpful. The park is within a large forest of various trees to include hardwoods and many pine trees. The restrooms were particularly well maintained with lots of hot water. The park offers firewood for a small donation. A wonderful park for sure. - Jim Butler

Heavily wooded, almost secluded sites and helpful, friendly staff make this moderately-used park a real gem for those who want peace and quiet. If you are into fishing, there is a good pier and boating facilities. We will go back. - judb

Note that the rate is only for the campsite. Each adult is $4 additional. Nice place! Some sites have views of the lake or even waterfront. Most are in the forest. Widely spaced, old school campsites but with concrete pads. Verizon works very well here. Check out Vaughan's Catfish Restaurant nearby for dinner too. - silvertube
