10 Parks near Rising Star, Texas
Apr 2016 - $15.00
Very nice city park in a relatively quiet residential neighborhood. The park itself is well maintained, but the RV utilities are in various states of repair. There is no host, just a self pay box. I enjoyed the stay here, and would have stayed longer, except there is no cell signal, even with an antenna, and no public wifi in town. I even had some trouble with my onstar phone, which usually works in no cell areas. The sites have sewer hookups, but they are not conveniently placed, so you may not be able to hookup while you are there, but you can use it as you leave. - KAP99

Very nice city run RV park in a city park just at the edge of town. Very convenient if you are traveling toward south TX on TX-183. Nice walking trail around the park. There's a covered pavilion with picnic tables, rest rooms and an outstanding veterans memorial listing all the soldiers in the county that gave their lives for their country from the Civil War to the present. Highly recommend. - trlrboy

Enjoyed our 2 day stay here in December. Very few campers other than us. Beautiful lake that allowed unlimited horsepower. Nice scenic walking trails throughout the park & along the lake . We had a major thunderstorm while there & water runoff was excellent. Lake level was high due to wet weather. Beautiful buildings built by the CCC. Showers clean but water drainage not designed properly so floor gets flooded outside shower area. Other than that, excellent campground. $4 entrance fee per person per day in addition to camping fees. Purchase a Texas Parks Pass & get free entrance for everyone in your vehicle plus camping discounts! - Rolling Regal

Beautiful park with spacious sites, some down close to the lake while others are on higher ground somewhat overlooking the lake. Full hook ups are in Council Bluff loop (where we stayed) while the water/electric only sites are on the Willow Point loop. We got several over-the-air TV stations and our AT&T cell service was excellent (3 or 4 bars of LTE). There are a couple of fishing piers and day use areas to swim, picnic, etc.
There is almost nothing in the area around the park (one store), so bring all your supplies with you! However, this is a quiet, clean, gem of a park that we enjoyed and would certainly return to. - texasAUtiger

Camped for 4 nights in a 43ft motor home so size, tree clearance and manuverability is key to our experience. Stayed in Council Bluff campground which fit our 3 needs perfectly. This campground also has full hookups. The campground is much higher and away from the water than the rest of the park, but several sites still have a beautiful view. The only complaint with Council Bluff is there is not much privacy when you are unlucky enough to get stuck with one of the inner loop sites. The outer loop appears to have more privacy. - nascarteamgordon

Clean and quiet place to stay a night or two. Full hookups. Must pay at City Hall 2 blocks SW. Used laundry on Main St. $1.25/wash .25/dryer (8 minutes each). Library WiFi is password protected and has really short hours. No shade and no Verizon coverage! - Sunneee

We are staying long-term in this park, so the nightly rate is misleading. we pay $400 a month, includes electricity.
Recently purchased, new owners are making improvements, including a newer section behind the office building. Easy on/off from I-20, big-rig friendly. Well-spaced sites. Some pull-throughs. Well-lit at night. Some road noise from the highway. Free wifi. Open all year. Cisco is a great little community! Come and visit. - TravelTiger

It is a place with full hook ups right off I-20. Bare bones but everything worked. We are in a 42' motorhome with car trailer so I could not make the turn to the pull through site, but I did back into it. There are hotel/RV parks 20 miles on either direction on I-20 but I was running out of day light and stopped here. I would probably try and make it the next stop if back this way. On a side note, the Chicken Diner next door was good. - retiremsgarmy

This is also a motel with only a few RV sites; but is wide, easy to get in and out, has everything for hookups. Has restaurant on site. Might only be open for dinner, not sure. The manager is very nice and accommodating, even let us borrow a cable for TV hookup. Has fresh coffee, honey buns in the office. Great place for overnight. Very simple but great when passing through the area. Would definitely stay here if in area. - Leah B

This bare bones parking to the side of the motel and behind a restaurant. It's level and fairly clean. This is good for stopping for the night while going down I-20. There are a few in the park that look like they are workers in the area, but it's quiet. Check in is at the motel office and there's plenty of room to maneuver. All the sites are pull through. Doesn't look like much, but didn't feel unsafe and it served the purpose. - tbax46

This park is just off of I-20 for easy on/off, sits on a hill, and road noise is low. There are no amenities as mentioned in other reviews and no manned office. However, the sites have some great views, many are shaded, gravel and fairly level. The power poles and water supplies are in good condition. They also have fast, free open wifi.
The owner does visit the property daily and does care.
They do not take credit cards, so have cash/envelope to drop in the slot.
It is very dark at night, so be prepared if arriving after sunset. - TravelTiger

At the park entrance you are greeted by a 20 year old trailer with the roof covered with a tarp,..... and that's the "office". No one present at "office", only a box of envelopes to deposit cash into. In July the water connection was still wrapped in insulation tape. We unwound the tape and almost threw up. We did not hook up to water. The ONLY saving grace to this park was the 50 amp service that worked well. Gravel roads and gravel sites. No showers or toilets. Park appeared to have wifi, but no password was provided anywhere. If a tornado ripped through this park, it would likely cause several thousand dollars worth of improvements. This park is truly one of the 5 worst we have ever visited, and most certainly an overnight park of last resort. - OpenRanger345RLS

The term "resort" is used a bit loosely. Mostly frequented by long term workers in the area. Had a problem with loud noise next to our site. The manager responded but pulled right up to our campsite and then went to the problem site. So there was no doubt who complained. Not a good technique. We stayed here one night a few years ago. The rates have since gone up and the upkeep has gone down. - bryan p

Older campground with a number of old trailers & RVs with permanent residents. You will be under large old oaks. Campground is quiet & good for a one night stay. Manager is pleasant and very helpful. - Peter K

The park is now called Solid Rock RV Park.
We stayed here long-term for a year. The park is well maintained, Managers are onsite residents, great pull-through RV sites, park is on the shore of Lake Leon, you can walk into the water. Beautiful views. Gravel sites. Single bath/shower facility. washers/dryers for guests. Small pond in park for fishing. Guest only boat launch/dock. Playground. Fire pit and gathering area. Office has some basic supplies. Office is not manned all the time, so call and wait for return call back to contact them. - TravelTiger

We have been on the road for 2 weeks and needed a place to spend a couple of days rest. Could not have chosen a better place. Very quiet with great service from the campground administrator. Did laundry and the dryer actually dried in 30 minutes for $1. We would stay again. - pttraveler

Very quiet campground, 5 miles south of I-20 @ exit 349. Long pull through sites, gravel and fairly level. Excellent free wi-fi, satellite reception good. Poor Verizon service, AT&T OK. Campground is adjacent to Lake Leon with boat ramp; golf course, pool and gym next door at golf club - did not visit. Only a few other RVs here. Would stay again. - RoadWarriors2

This is a very family oriented privately owned campground on Lake Leon. Lake Leon is located between Eastland,Texas and Ranger Texas. The RV sites are not paved, but very large and have huge oak trees for shade. No campfires are allowed,no tables at RV sites. This is a large campground with cabins available to rent. The cabins are 2, 3, or four bedrooms and are on the lake front. There are three lighted piers/docks to fish from. Other activities include volleyball and tennis. The management is very cooperative and friendly. Even though this is family oriented, it is a very quiet campground. - Bethro
