33 RV Parks near Pottsboro, Texas

I only seem to review parks when I really like them or don't. You will not have to guess which one this is. Firstly, this is not big rig friendly. Your experience begins on the approach, a narrow twisting road on a levee for about 2.5 miles, when you arrive and must descend a single lane, very steep drop off the levee to the park. What goes down must come up. The park is very poorly maintained: dusty roads, bumpy grass (sort of grass) sites, and very poor electric. I never looked in the showers etc, but the building looked very tired. Mostly permanents (maybe seasonal), but very few transients. My 50 amp connection was not working (causing my surge protector to hum) and not delivering power to the coach. The one small bright spot was when a maintenance man came over to check out the humming, and informed me that this site had poor power and I should move to another. He did assist me and we found another site and we were able to stay the night, but left the next day. The ride up the hill to the levee was equally challenging and I was very pleased to be on my way. Would not ever return (even for free). - Woody1

First time to this park, and the last. Stayed here with Coast to Coast discount. Was charged $7.00 nightly for full hookup but only had 30 amp available, and we had to use adjoining electric because our electric was not working. Reported it to management but nothing ever happened to fix problem. Campsite was in a grassy area but probably had not been mowed in several months, grass all around was very tall which made it a mosquito haven. Staff were friendly but resort needs to fix gravel roads and general lawn maintenance. Stayed just down the road at another campground which was much more appealing and no fees. - Dedra C

Campground nicely shaded by a canopy of trees along gravel driveways.
The biggest drawback to this park is the well deserved reputation for having long-term members in row E who disrespect the people passing through. The long-term members tend to annoy, harass, and disrespect the other campers.
Management has little control over these long-term dwellers who have a sense of entitlement.
Would we camp there again? Only of there were sites available away from row E. - Wanders

Very nice location if you want to be right on the lake. The staff I dealt with was very friendly and helpful. The road into the park and around the park is paved but the sites are gravel. Picnic tables are not in the best condition and there is one ladies and men's room with one shower near the entrance to the park across the road from the office. The restroom was clean, but very aged and if you were to use the toilet you would want to cover the seat with toilet paper. Park has a very small playground for kids, but not much else. I was there in October, so not as many boaters using the park to launch their boats, but I could see during the summer it could be a nuance. Sites have 50 and 30 amp along with water, but no sewer though the park does have a dump site. There is wifi, but you would have to pay for it; I didn't use it so can't speak to the quality of it. I would warn that there are a lot of stickers; my dog was constantly getting them in her feet and coat. You would never want to walk bare footed. - ATV Guy

My family and I stayed at this "newly renovated" resort with 19 RV spots. It was "below average", not good. Management offers NO DISCOUNTS (TACO, Sams, or Veteran) and plans to never do so. My wife and I attended the dinner cruise. It was good, except overheard another camper being nickel and dimed (after we all had paid $16 for dinner BBQ) over desert. They wanted to charge add't $4 for a small cup of pudding! They never told us of the upcharge!! Really! No Joke!! And to top it off, they had NO FULL HOOKUPS, and then charged $5 fee to use their sewer dump!! The RV spaces are gravel and very tight fits! Then, boat trailers park on top of the RV spots, thus blocking your entry into your sites. Finally, we had issues, as did other campers, with the low hanging tree limbs. These would scrap the top of our RVs. In all, we would NOT stay here again. - TXRVKing2013

I love COE campgrounds because they usually well maintained and easy to maneuver. This one is beginning to show some serious signs of age and is in need of TLC. The main road to the gate is bad enough, but the interior road is almost to the point of falling apart. The sites are still nice enough, but need some updating, cleaning and re-levelling. If you have a rig larger than 30' you probably want to stay with sites #34,#35,#37 and #38 only. The workampers at the park are among the very best and will make you feel welcome. It is very quiet on a peninsula at Lake Texoma and enjoyable. I would camp here again, however, the state park nearby is in much better condition and has full hookups. Also be careful when exiting the park as there is a lot of junky vehicles and trailers parked just outside the gate and they block you view of oncoming traffic from the north. - tbax46

We stay here every Memorial Day. The owners are very friendly. My family would love to see an update to the road to the boat ramp, but wonderful place to stay. Very quiet. - SOSUGrad04

Very clean, quiet and out of the way located off Highway 120 just west of Pottsboro. Close to Mill Creek Marina and several nice restaurants. Beautiful place to camp with a nice breeze off the lake. Also has cabins for rent and a place to launch boats and jet skis. This is our second time to visit this campground. We loved it! - dlrhodes

We love Eisenhower. It has some really beautiful spots. We tend to always stay on the full hookup sites that have mostly pull-thru drives. The game wardens are great about keeping the peace. The roads are really nice and you can drive your bike easily on them. The trailers are well maintained for both bikes (in designated areas) and hikers. They have a sandy beach you can hike down to and it is beautiful.
One of the roads accessing the parks is currently walked out but it should be repaired soon.
If you pick out a spot while in the office and do not like it when you get there, just call the office number and ask to switch. They are more than accommodating. - LMTurner74

Check-in was easy and the staff friendly. Roads are well marked and in good shape. Many sites are not level, so bring your blocks! Sites in our loop were spacious and ranged from fun sun to full shade. Aluminum picnic tables were very nice and had fire rings and lantern poles. Utility connections were convenient and worked well.
Campground was quiet and had lots of wildlife to watch including deer, rabbits, and roadrunners. There are hiking trails, fishing piers, and a swim cove, but be ready for some elevation change. There is an onsite marina with rentals.
There is wifi at the restrooms, but it does not reach to all the campsites. We did get Verizon cell coverage as well as 10 OTA TV stations.
Overall a nice place and we will stay here again when in the area. - BrentB

Our visit to Eisenhower State Park was our very first experience at any State Park. We were pleasantly surprised at the beauty of the park. Our site had full hook ups which I understand now is unusual for a state park. We loved the swimming area, the caves and the rock climbing. The trees around our site were beautiful as well. The sites are clean and spacious with a the fire pit and picnic table. We enjoyed time around the fire with very friendly Texans the first weeks and fell in love with Texas State Parks. My nine and seven-year-old enjoyed the Junior Ranger program and earned their first badges. The Eisenhower State Park book is different from other Texas SP Junior Ranger program books. It focuses on General Dwight D Eisenhower. We enjoyed learning about his life and legacy. We loved every minute of our 2 week stay. - FromJoy

Nice lakefront campground with some extra long full hookup, pull through sites and some nice, no-sewer sites backed up to the lake with great sunsets. Pulled up without reservations but the host gave us some options and we really enjoyed our stay. Nice trees provide shade from the summer heat. A really nice COE campground! - GretasDad

The parks is large, and laid out in various loops. Our site was semi-level, but manageable. Some sites have the picnic table and fire ring on the back side of the site (which is odd) . Take plenty of water hose, and maybe extra power cable... you may need it. The "D" loop was a mad house. Cars everywhere, tents everywhere, and people walking through the sites. The music and festivities usually quieted down around midnight. If you're hoping for a nice quiet get away: I'd definitely recommend avoiding this loop on a holiday weekend. (It was Memorial Day) However, the park is nice, and C and E loops seemed much more subdued than where we were. This was a last minute reservation and this was the last site available. However, it was much preferable than sitting at home. We booked a different site for Labor Day. - GoHorns!

Burns Run West is a Corps of Engineers park on Lake Texoma near Cartwright, OK. It has 105 water and electric sites, of which 21 are full hookup sites (sewer, 50/30/20 electric and wster). All full hookups sites are 80'+ pull throughs, with great shade, large patio with modern picnic tables, and utilities on concrete pads. Well designed sites. The other sites in the park are rough with 30A electric. Nice sand swim area, good bathroom/bathhouse facilities, playground and boat ramp. One of our favorite parks. - drfife

East Burns Run is a Corps of Engineers Park on Lake Texoma near Cartwright, Oklahoma. The campground has 44 RV sites, of those 19 are full hookup sites (sewer, 50/30/20 electric and water). The full hookups sites are spacious with large concrete pad, patio and covered picnic table. Most sites have great lake views but not good shade. The park has a boat ramp, swim area and playground. Very popular park, weekend reservations required well in advance. We were in site 35, right on the lake. Highly recommend. - drfife

Mixed feelings about River View. Quoted one price on phone, charged more on arrival. Park seems to have been fitted in the terrain in awkward ways in some parts. Wi-fi is slow, water pressure with their mandated pressure reducer ($100 fine?) is dismal, and even the electricity at our site didn' handle loads very well. Scenery is nice, location is convenient and we had things to do in the area so our stay was OK, but seems over-priced. - Grumpier99

A family owned and run park. They work hard to make a safe and enjoyable stay for all their guests. Restroom are air conditioned and heated. Speed limit 10mph and they enforce it, 3 strikes and you're out.
Large concrete pads, plenty of room for toads and nice paved patio. - Margaritaman
Oct 2016 - $40.00
Please be aware.... This place is not a $40 per night site, although the view is nice, no pool and many amenities which a $40/night camp does.. wifi so slow too. Was really disappointed when we arrived and asked for a site with trees, and their reply was "we put all of our Passport America customers here," where the sites were minimal to say the least, no trees. Also the park seemed to have a lot of RV lifers living there.
If you're gonna offer discounts for PPA and others the least you can do is not discriminate, otherwise just pull out of the program. - blackberryjack

They consider all sites in the RV area have 'view' of the lake. They have put as many sites as possible in this area leaving little parking for your truck. They also have a lodge that is available to use if not rented out. What they didn't bother to say was it had been rented both Saturday nights we were there. There was an outdoor wedding and reception with DJ and music, really loud by cut off time of 11:00 PM. They were just a stone's throw away across the street. The restrooms, showers, and laundry were clean and kept up. It was a pretty area with tall trees. Could walk along the lake for a long ways because the water is low from drought. If I return it would be during the week, not a weekend. - SunflowerTX

I picked this park so that my daughter's family could visit with us over an extended weekend. Cedar Mills has some very nice cabins to rent, near their store, restaurant, and playground. I can not say enough good things about this campsite. The bathrooms were very clean, the grounds are beautifully maintained, showers were hot, and there is a petting zoo for kids. - TW Day

We stayed at park during the first of April. The lake is right there. Our neighbors were friendly. The wifi was great. There are a lot of beautiful boats and the check-in shop has all sorts of neat gifts, clothes, etc. We would certainly go back and plan to take the grandchildren so they can fish from the bank. I forgot to mention that they have a great beach front very close. No complaints. We'll be back! - nellieb
