15 Parks near Pittsburg, Texas
Jun 2016 - $33.00
Arrival: You have to travel 18 miles south to get there but it just may be worth it
Roads: Excellent all the way coming and going. Except... we called the site owner in advance and she told us not to follow the GPS. So true. Drive in to Pittsburg and then approach from the south. I drove the GPS road in my TOAD and thought I was going to die!
Sites: Excellent. Plenty of space and well maintained. Full hookups. DISH by every site... but you have to pay huge to get it running.
Cost: $32.50. Website says there are discounts -- none. Park owner's excuse is that she can't update the site.
Local Area: Rural. You have to drive back to Mt Pleasant to get anything you really need.
Internet: Advertized free internet -- false. Limited cell phone reception. Clear views of all skies and/or plug into DISH.
Other: One dumpster at the end of the park. Inconvenient. Many excuses for not delivering on advertised amenities. We will not stay there again. - JC Penny

Nice quiet park about 2 miles from Lake Bob Sandlin. I was on the only cement pad in the park on Site 17. Electricity, water and sewer connections are at the back of the site. Be careful pulling into sites because of this. Roads are gravel in the park and a little narrow. Sites are kind of close together but not on top of each other. Verizon service is 3 bars sometimes, but mostly 2 bars or less. Wi-Fi was not working during my stay, they said it was "hung up". Owners are very friendly. They are improving amenities in the park continuously. There are picnic tables in a pavilion in the park and they have just completed a nice large pet park. Area is still a little muddy when it rains, but they are working on landscaping in the park. Entrance drive to the park is a little obscured by some trees and it narrow. I would stay here again. - Paul_L63

We were transferred to Pittsburg with my husband's job. The owner was very friendly. The spaces were tight, but very long pull thrus, allowing ample parking for both our vehicles. There were small shade trees. The park was located in a very beautiful, hilly area, making the drive a very pleasant one. The Laundry room was very nice and the shower house was clean and nice as well. The park was fairly new and immaculate. We were there only 5 months and would definitely stay there again. - Sharon Henderson

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
May 2014 - $12.00
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

A very nice State Park. Asphalt road ways, concrete pads on all sites (although some of them appeared to be fairly short and/or not that level). Most, if not all sites, had a separate grass pad for tents. Sites also had wooden picnic tables on concrete pads, and metal grated fire pits. Campground has been carved out of the forest so heavily treed. Excellent spacing between sites, our site was very secluded. 30 Amp power worked for us, would have been nice to have 50 Amp (perhaps we selected the wrong loop?). Good water pressure on site as well. One restroom with showers between two loops. One garbage bin per two loops. Only one dumping station (with access for two units/time) for the entire campground. Free firewood available at the front gate (but, the campground did accept donations). Very friendly park staff. Loops were frequently patrolled by staff personnel. Overall, an excellent campground. Would definitely return. - WinnMac

The rate does not reflect a required daily entrance fee unless you have a Texas State Park pass. Only a very few of the sites have any sort of water view at all. The campsites in this park are heavily tree covered, good for a hot day. We were lucky enough to be able to find a site with a hole to get satellite. We had very good Verizon data and voice. Most of the sites are not very long or would be very hard to level. The campground is fairly convenient to Mt. Pleasant. We were mainly there to visit friends, so did not explore the park itself very much. - TheJim

As noted with Texas State Parks, you must either have a Park Pass or pay an additional $4 per person daily use fee. The sites varied in length and level grade. We chose a site with some lake view, and used leveling blocks. My RV power monitor noted that only L2 was powered on their 50A receptacle, so we asked the park, to learn that they have never connected 50A service to the sites. So I switched to the 30A plug and had good power even with an internal space heater. It was a fairly quiet campground, even with some large groups of young boys camping on our loop. We did not explore the park very much, taking day trips to Kilgore and to Tyler. We stayed 5 nights and would stay again. - cherib

Gravel roads, grassy sites. Playground equipment for kids, covered pavilion, Clean laundry. Huge sites approximately 40'x75'. Plenty of elbow room and grass for our dog. Owners have their home on site. We will stay here again. - Herb Stark

Walleye Park on Lake Cypress Springs is operated by Franklin County Water District. There are 72 RV sites (54 50A/water and 18 50A/water/sewer). All sites have lake access. There is a boat dock for every two sites. Large trees and shade. The new sites with sewer (55-72) have large concrete pads and are $50/night with 3 night minimum for reservations. Non-sewer sites (1-54) are $30/night with 3 night minimum for reservations. Good WiFi and cell service. Beautiful park. I am surprised it has not been reviewed previously on RVPR. We were in full hook-up site #60. Best full hookup sites are #'s 65 and 69. - drfife

Average overnight park. Level sites on pull throughs with good hookups, good cable TV and Wi-Fi. The only downside is the highway noise though it isn't bad at night. I would stay here again. Price is PA at 30 amp. - nedmtnman

Very basic RV park; OK for overnight. Many long term residents with diesel trucks starting up early in the morning. Off the interstate which helped with road noise; however, this park is somewhat difficult to locate at night as entrance is not well marked. Roads need to be regraded and sites re-graveled. Next time we will go on elsewhere. - andrews4

We really enjoyed our initial stay. A quiet campground with friendly owners and staff. Cable TV has about 70 channels at no extra charge. Nice large enclosed dog run. We will return again. - RedSoloCup

This park has a lot of potential but it looks a bit run down. The roads are rough and there's a nice pond at the back that needs to be cleaned up around it. It looks like there are a few long term residents here. There's a large dog run and it was okay. Wifi worked well. The lady in the office was friendly and escorted us to our site. It's off the Interstate far enough that noise was not a factor. - 69636

Small, older park with easy access to the highway. Texas has been through severe drought for last 5 years and so this park is not as pretty as it probably once was. Very tall trees. Limited landscaping. Quite a few "seasonals" that look abandoned but keep in mind we are here late in the year. Pool looks okay; did not visit laundry or bathrooms. Most rigs pull in for a night or two and move on elsewhere. Front office staff were very nice as were the RVers. - JanneC

Nice KOA, we stayed for one night on our way back to central Texas. We did laundry, showered, etc. We arrived late afternoon so we stayed put in the RV. Cable tv worked fine with a good number a channels and a good amount of shade around us. Unfortunately the pool was out of commission, but they told us this when we called ahead. Good one night stop. Our site was very long and level. We kept the toad connected annd still had space to park at least one more care if needed. - mikel

This is an old run down RV park that is well past its prime. Owner was nice enough but place is not ready for customers. No bathrooms or showers, and old paved roads and parking spots. This park is adjacent to an abandoned truck stop of days gone by. This area my have thrived at one time but no longer. We almost left after paying but decided to stay and get some rest. We were the only ones there except for the owner. It had a rather rundown building that had "Coin Laundry" sign on it, but I wouldn't have tried to go in it. I assumed another relic from days gone by. In the end we got a nights sleep but I couldn't wait to get going the next morning. I would not recommend this place to anyone the way it is right now. Not blaming the owners, I assume they are trying to revive the place but it gives a very poor impression and we had little sense of safety or security. We found this place through Passport America. - ThinkingRedInk

Very nicely maintained little park with excellent customer service. Good laundry room, good wifi, free cable tv, and a bargain, even without the Passport America discount. Site was just long enough to pull in 27" trailer and not unhitch, but I couldn't hook up to the sewer without unhitching and moving the truck. Very easy to get in and out of the park, and only a few miles off the interstate on a main road. There was traffic noise from the road during commuting hours, but it was otherwise pretty quiet. - KAP99

We enjoyed this unique park that slopes gently down from the road to the lake front. Please consult the park's website for pictures of the RV spaces that will help you better understand my description of the park. We stayed in the best back-in site on the property. Our entire door side was separated from the water's edge by only a lush section of lawn for sitting and enjoying the sunset. Another, separate grass lakefront common area is available for the other RV spaces that don't sit right on the water. The check-in building also has a covered porch and nice chairs for relaxing and enjoying the lake views. The owners have added a few pull-through sites directly across the quiet street from the lakefront site area where we stayed. You won't feel the water in these sites, but will have only a short distance to walk to set yourself up on the lakefront to read or relax. We are traveling with our two kids, ages 11 and 14. The park is family friendly. We used a great teatherball court numerous times and we also jumped in the lake for a swim every time we got hot. The water was a comfortable temperature in late September, at least for us. If you have a boat in tow, the project has a nice dock system and a boat launch ramp. The owners are good people and are present and active on a day to day basis. They have owned the property for 16 years and were happy to show us around and share with us the history of the property and the area. We recommend the park for those that enjoy a smaller, mom and pop owned park in a very nice setting. - my12by60

Just like the first review said! We were in #8. Thirty feet from the water under the shade of a few tall stately pines. Also has six room motel so non RVer friends can stay. Nice pier system and boat ramps so you can fish from the pier or go boating. Made for a very pleasant stay. We'll be going back! - Texrv
