Date of Stay: August, 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. We camped at Barefoot Bay Marina & Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
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. We camped at Barefoot Bay Marina & Resort in a Motorhome.
Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $27.00
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. We camped at Barefoot Bay Marina & Resort in a Motorhome.
