We just stayed one night as we were passing through but it's a nice campground. We MUCH prefer state, national and especially COE campgrounds over private when we travel. - PegL

We came here for two nights becore continuing to our preferred campground which was full over Easter weekend. The sites looked like they hadn't been mowed in a month and the grass/vegetation was up to my dog's chest. The hookups were on the wrong side of the side so we were forced to run our hoses under the rv so our door could open toward the lake, our picnic table and fire ring. On the plus side, the water is pretty. Waiting to see if the argentine ants carry us off. - Kato52

Me and my husband stayed the weekend at this beautiful gem of a park. Spacious camp sites. We stayed at #4 site. Plenty of privacy for us. Few dogs barking but that was ok. Drive way is steep so I suggest to go up it carefully. The bathrooms are bathrooms. They were ok. Will definitely be back. Adorable Picnic cover on concrete pad with table!! - Chuck and Teresa

It was a really nice spot, but the electrical box was confusing. The 30 amp had a breaker, plus there was a 50 amp breaker. But we had no electricity first night because we didn't realize you had to flip the 50 amp breaker to get juice to the 30 amp outlet. Some say that is a dangerous combo.
Also, they have an infestation of ants. They gave us some spray, which we used around the tires and jacks, but it rained, and we forgot to spray. Thus, ants invaded the trailer and crawled on my face in the night. Not pleasant. - Martha Goudey

This is a nice COE park on Navarro Mills Lake. Our site was wooded, providing nice shade yet the lake was just 50 yards away. We stayed 2 nights in site #22 which is a long back-in site with electric and water but no sewer. There is a boat ramp, fishing pier, and sandy beach area nearby. We struggled to get a satellite signal due to the trees, but if you have enough coaxial cable to place the dish nearer the lake the trees thin out and you can get some reception. We did have full LTE cell and data reception via AT&T and lots of TV channels via OTA antenna.
We enjoyed our stay here and would gladly return. - texasAUtiger

Made reservation back in April ( and paid) was even told the site we would have. Upon arriving was told that they had nothing for me and took us over to a "new site still under construction. Just ain't into space which was not level. Don't believe the photographs on the website - park doesn't look that good. Save your money and stay at the hereby Walmart. - Our rv journey

Very nice park and wonderful staff - very helpful folks. Nice level lots and easy hook-ups. Fenced doggy park all the way in the back of the space and lots of handy doggy do bags posted throughout the park. The wi-fi comes and goes which is the only reason I did not give it a score of 10. I would stay here again and lots to do in the area - a nice planetarium at the college and a wonderful ""tea room"" in the old section of town. We enjoyed our stay. - EllieMae Erskine

Good place to stay for an overnight. There are paved level sites and the hookups work fine. This is a quiet park without a lot of frills, but work well if you want a quiet secure place to stay. There are a lot of permanent or semi-permanent residents in another section of the park, but there is a line of nicely spaced pull-throughs for those there for short stays. We would stay here again. - hoppytoad

The good... The boat ramp is easily accessible. The restaurant on site is decent for burgers and hot breakfast.
The bad...The spots are very small. No space between them. The grounds have a large number of cats roaming free so everything outside smells like a kitty litter box....basically because it is. I cleaned up cat mess every day to keep the smell down. There are quite a few long term residents and they let their dogs do their business wherever they feel like. Nasty and I had to keep my dogs in the trailer the whole weekend because of the cats everywhere.
Giant cockroaches got into everything. Need I say more? - Akrbrsn

The new owners took over this park last April. They have improved the boat ramp to handle three boats at the same time. The lake is 7.5 feet low, but we saw a 25' party barge launch with no problems. We stayed in site #1, which is waterfront and the sunsets were awesome. They have fishing, paddle boats to rent, shaded sites, live bait, and a small general store. The bath houses were small, but clean. They plan to add additional restrooms, cabins, laundry, and grill, later. Corsicana is about twenty minutes away, so plan on bringing your groceries with you. They do allow campfires and grills. This is a gem in the making. - timetokill

This is a nice park close enough to the Dallas area for a weekend getaway. We stayed for two nights, and the park was nice and quiet. There is not much to do there, but it is a great place to get away if that is what you are looking for. - Aggiepi

There are 3 parks at Bardwell Lake available for camping. We camped at Mott Park and had a nice lakefront site, which we were able to select online. Even though it was a holiday weekend, the spaces are far enough apart that it did not seem crowded or noisy. Some sites require a lot of leveling, and some are 30-amp only, but the reservation system will tell you this. This is a no-frills park, but the scenery is lovely and a perfect getaway if you want to just get out of town, enjoy nature, and relax. - Lucydog

Can not stop talking about Fort Parker State Park to anyone who will listen. We fell in love with it from first sight. Well maybe not first sight, the road into the park is in need of repair. Very rough. And all of the grounds at the Park office are grown up but I might be that they are waiting for the wildflowers to got to seed. The Park Rangers were super friendly, all of them. Once you got to the RV loop the lake side views are outstanding. And well cared for. Our RV site was right on the water and we loved it. A perfect site. Sunsets for majestic every night. Fishing was available all around the camp, very nice fishing dock, well lighted for night fishing. There is a nice boat dock and also canoe rentals are available. There is a nice community center for rentals. And also screened shelters that look very nice. Lots of hiking trails, bike trails. Grills at each site, very nice concrete picnic tables at each site. Very clean restrooms and showers although we did not use them. We thoroughly enjoyed the little nature center was educational and entertaining. Nice history lesson on the CCA and the park history. Very sweet and helpful couple who run the Nature Center and work the grounds. I can't wait to return to this amazing state park. - True Texas

Fort Parker is not a big state park. There are less then 30 spots for overnight stay. It is on the Navasota River and Fort Parker Lake. It is quiet and the hiking trails are easy. You can enjoy a picnic lunch and fish. We love the serenity of the place. There is Mexia and Groesbeck close by if you run out of supplies. This is one of our favorite places. - Cirrus

We stopped into this great State Park a few days ago on a trip home and found it to be fantastic.
We got a pull through site on the lake that was perfect. We stopped on a week day so there were only 2 other campers there that night. It was beautiful and quiet and a real joy to be there. LIke most Texas State Parks (but not all) they were water & electric sites and none have sewer hookups. There is a nice dump station.
Others have mentioned that you have to unhook your Toad before turning around in the cul de sac at the end of the road - and this is completely true. Like so many others it looked like we could make it but nope.
Now, if you came here on a weekend I imagine this park would be super crowded and a completely different experience. But on a weekday in the Fall it was great.
Nice camp host, very nice and clean bathrooms and showers were an nice addition as well. Again, on a busy weekend they are probably way too small.
We highly recommend this place if you are anywhere near Waco, TX and looking for a good place to stay. - Creativepart

This is the most poorly maintained COE we have stayed at. Our site was fine but had not been mowed in quite some time. Entry was unmanicured and we are not usually very picky, but this was very noticeable and out of character from our COE experience. - pwdorris

Park needs updating. Roads are rough. Marina old and in bad repair. Quiet at least during week. Most lots not level. Trains within 1 mile, 2-3 crossings 1st night 7-9 trains came through. On the lake. Would not go back except maybe overnight. - 11 Bounder

Because it was the beginning of spring break, the park was full. Not knowing beforehand, we rented a site that probably better suited for tent camping. The site was a tight fit for our small 5th-wheel; however, very close to the water and could park our boat close to the campsite. The site was not level due to slope toward water. For unknown reason, the electric did not work with the surge protector; however, the park host was very nice in helping us find that was the reason for no electric. The bluebonnets were everywhere and the fishing was good! - PandL5thwheel
