Price based on monthly rate of $400 for the month not including electric. We stayed from late October 2017 till early Feb 2018. Nice, well maintained park. During heavy rains, sites did not flood. Very quite and feels like you're truly in the woods. Spacing of sites give privacy. Sites are large. Very few activities in park and no community room. There is an outdoor pavilion, but seldom used. Great base to go do other things. - C Young

Stayed in the off season- Early January. Park is pretty much vacant. The size of the pull thru lots are AMAZING. Possibly 60 feet? Wifi close to the office is decent. My site and the next one next to it had permanently installed Dish or Direct TV dishes. Pretty nice. Very friendly staff and grounds are clean. Water was pretty good, as well as pressure. No over-the-air tv channels and no cable. The manager, worked with me on price above the two day Passport stay. Really decent people. The area is kinda limited in entertainment. The closest grocery is in Cold Spring- about 8 miles. The Walmart (and civilization) is about a twenty five minute drive. The park grounds are well marked and seem that they would drain nicely in a heavy rain. Close to Lake Livingston dam. - BillyBobTX

Nice wooded park. We stayed here for the winter. The front part of the park was very nice. Back section was not well kept. Owners very nice very caring people. Bathrooms and laundry are dated. Pool needs upgraded. Older park. Does have a very nice clubhouse. - lafoe

We came here on a recommendation from another RVer that used to frequent Woodsy Hollow. It was not as nice as the recommendation or as the web site shows. The campground is mainly full time folks with lots of junk sitting around. The campground seems to have a few sites that they keep for recreational users. They have a nice area that a group had reserved and stayed together. A few sites have a view of the private lake. Roads were dusty and frequently traveled. Bathrooms were fair/poor in repair and cleanliness. They did have kayak and paddle boats for rent, rec room, a good little playground, and a pool. Staff was friendly and helpful. I'm sure it was a good campground at one time, now catering to full time residents. We do not plan to return. - HJH

This was an overnight stop for us on our way home from south Texas. We pulled in at 7:30 pm. The office was closed and there were no registration forms in the box. We picked a site that looked fairly level. It wasn't. All grass sites. The "paved" road was in very poor shape. The bathrooms & showers were very primitive and not very clean. We used electric only, and were up and on our way by 7:30 a.m. Someone dropped by & left a registration form on our steps while we were in the bathrooms. We never saw a living person while there. This is a good example of why people choose to sleep over at Wal Marts or truckstops. We thought $10 would have been a fair price for sleeping there. - mcleff

This is great campground to stay at while in the area of Livingston, TX, home of Escapees organization. The owners are just the nicest people and make one feel so welcome. The bathhouse/laundry are located in a small building and the cleanliness was outstanding. Recycling is available and they have outside games available for patrons to use. They have two fenced in dog parks and even have horse corrals available for those who travel with horses (and yes someone stopped for several days with their horses). The WiFi is outstanding and there are 4-5 repeaters in the small camping area. The camp office has a small amount of groceries, mostly sodas and candy. The sites are close together and not level. We have auto levelers and did not have any trouble leveling though our front end of our 5th wheel was very close to the ground. The sites are gravel/dirt and when it rained, it was really messy and difficult not to carry stuff inside the RV and this was Really our only complaint of this campground. It was not as much of a problem when it was dry. We paid the monthly rate with a military discount and paid separately for electricity. When we add electric to our site cost, it averaged $15 per night. This is a relatively new campground and they are still making additions to make the stay better. We loved this place and would return. - roadking

We were the first guest to camp at the New Adventure RV Park and we were not disappointed. The park is located in the Piney Woods of East Texas, near Livingston. It's a small park, which was part of the attraction to my husband and me. The park hosts are wonderful people, offering complimentary coffee, citrus-infused water, and homemade muffins the days we were there. The laundry and bathroom facilities were immaculate and the park was well kept. We have two dogs and the park offers two separate dog parks, for both small and large. Since we were there in August, our dogs loved the kiddie pools to cool off in during our stay. We particularly loved our morning walks around the trail system the owners put in around the park. Tree-lined paths gave way to wonderful varieties of wildlife including birds, lizards, squirrels, rabbits, and an array of butterflies of which I've never seen. There were 100's of them flying around the property throughout our stay. In the early evening, before the sun set, we played horseshoes and other games in a recreational area of the park and then at night, the park is exceptionally quiet and we spent many a night star gazing. In many instances, we could make out the Milky Way in the dark sky. If you like to take pictures, you'll love it here. If you're in the east Texas area, I would highly recommend this park.Wonderful stay and I highly recommend it! - Eccentric Nomads

We had a great time... for August camping in Texas. We almost had the entire place to ourselves. Only 3 other sites were occupied. On RV door side (passenger) the next spot was 50 yards away through thick brush. On the other side (driver) the next spot was only 15 yards away and clearly visible should you look back there (we did not). From the camper's bumper, the lake was just 20 yards away. A great spot that we will try to get again next time.The kids enjoyed the swimming area which was clean and well maintained. - Warkog

This a nice small park. There are several pull-throughs which have full hookups and can handle big rigs. There are not any sites which you could really call lake view due to the heavy forest. The swimming area is really nice. Verizon service is a little spotty but usable. Like Cagle Rec Area, your America the Beautiful discount is screwy, not really half price like most USFS and COE parks. We will probably come here again. - TEXASBOY

Update review 11/2016 - This is one of our favorite places to camp in our RV. This is a very small camping area in the Sam Houston National Forest near Coldspring Texas. There are sites you can reserve and sites that are first-come-first serve.
There are 2 park hosts that live in the park and they are very accommodating if you need anything, but don't expect to see a constant presence by park staff.
The park is a beautiful forest like facility with very wooded and shady sites, a small lake with plenty of water in it (after a couple drought seasons) and abundant hiking and biking trails.
We only camp on the full service RV sites. (Not all sites are full service.) Some sites are reasonably level and some require substantial leveling efforts. Just make sure you have plenty of Lynx levelers or equivalent. The pedestals are conveniently located with 30/50 amp service, water and dump. The sites driveway is blacktop and most sites have a concrete pad with a large picnic table and a nearby fire pit.
Cell service and TV reception are weak, so don't plan to watch a lot of TV unless you have a satellite system. - Tcamper

Check in was smooth and being able to reserve specific sites over the web ensured no surprises at arrival. We had no problem backing our 36 foot 5er into our site. The electric connection was towards the front of site and our electric is at the rear of our 5er which resulted in needing to use a 10 foot power cord extension in order to back all the way into the site and connect power. There was a great mix of tents, camping trailers, and 5ers throughout the park. The park's pool was closed but there was a designated swim area with easy access into and out of the lake. We will return to this park again. - GVRZ381

We stayed 7 nights on the Piney Shore Loop. We were next to the water, and never had any problem with mosquitoes or flies. St. Augustine grass has been planted, so picking burrs out of our dogs was not an issue. We were thrilled with our site, and hope to return soon. With the site reservation system, sure does help in choosing the site you want. - TxBg

We stayed during the week. Quiet, beautiful and well maintained park. Park staff were readily available during the day and very helpful during checking. We didn't see staff after dark. We didn't see much wildlife other than birds and squirrels. The lake is the second largest in Texas! Several campers fishing. Great trails for walking and biking. Sad to see many sites reserved but not used. The Piney Shores Loop had beautiful waterfront views on sites 53 thru 71. We enjoyed our stay! - MovinTarget
Apr 2014 - $18.00
I agree with the other campers. Quiet, large site, no laundry or anything. Grassy site that the dog liked. Not well marked, look for the red dirt driveway after the two churches. We liked the place and will stay again - diceshooter60

Basic place. Pretty nice and quiet. This place is combined with a mobile home park, but it's quiet and spread out over 7 acres. Lots of grass, and trees, and seclusion. We camped here our motor home while passing thru. We may stop here again in the future. - RVFanTX

This campground is now closed. Someone told us that it has been turned over to the city of Flower Mound and they may reopen it next year (2010). - janchuckscw

This is our home park its a little old but has the homey feel, everyone is so pleasant as are nearly all Escapees members, there were many activities going on, the pool is small but nice and clean and open till 9pm we were thankful it was HOT everyday. Our site was nice and shady and we were able to wash and wax the motorhome, our neighbors were wonderful. Water is good no problems with electric, nice club house, a great Ice Cream social at the club house and Pancake breakfast at the care center. - Tfrout

Really good value for members, and not bad even for non-members. The overnight section of the park is like many decent older parks. There are a lot of mature trees, so lots of shade. We were under a tree, so satellite didn't work, and no cable or OTA stations, but that was OK with us. People were friendly and helpful, typical Escapees. In the full-time residents section of the park is the Escapees national headquarters, handy for members or those who want to join. There are some activities going on pretty much all year, and generally everyone is invited. Verizon cell and internet worked. No Wifi for short-termers. - JA1800

Our site was very unlevel and the whole place appeared to need some TLC. Very rundown and worn out looking. - PegL

Stopped for one night while traveling east from Waco. This park is only 2 years old and is still under development. The roads and parking spaces are concrete. Sites are level and all seem to be pull thru and they are fairly close together. Utilities are well placed. Do not rely on GPS to get you there based on the street address. You must exit RT 105 onto a frontage road to get to the RV park entrance. GPS will put you onto Texas 59 and you will see the RV park as you pass by. The only other negative is the driveway from the frontage road into the RV park is full of potholes, some very large. - Allure470

Pit bulls are allowed. Washers and dryers are gritty as people wash their shoes in them(I saw this) Lots of loud pickups that woke me more than once. People are allowed to leave item outside their RV...items like laundry soap, children's toys, shoes, towels. Way too expensive! $435/mo + my electric was $121. for one month. - Sharonc

We found a lot of trash in the fire pit. The sites were not policed after the last group left. Our neighbor found trash also In his site also. There is no trash can at the dump station, so people threw plastic gloves on the ground along with other trash. Park would be very nice, if it was cleaned up Lady working in office was helpful and friendly. Nice that they pick up your bagged trash daily at your site. Beware! You can't cancel your reservation for any reason. You can reschedule in the same season. - Texan58

Nice park on Lake Livingston. Nice that the park is closed for day use during the weekends, cuts down on traffic. My one complaint is the use of boom boxes and car radios that can be heard all off the park. Not a quiet place on Saturday afternoon. - Texan58

We stayed on site 73. Very spacious but lots of long leaf pine needles on pad and in the grassy areas but especially under the picnic table. Evidently the leaf blowers had not been around in a while. Another pet peeve of tidy campers was the fire pit full of trash including plastic bottles. Park maintenance folks hadn't been around to clean up site and we didn't arrive until almost 4pm!
Other than those issues it is a lovely park with lots of amenities and the staff in the entry station and the store were very helpful and pleasant. Our site had a lake view. Unfortunately it was so hot and humid we didn't spend much time out of doors!
This is a great park and lake if you are fishing for cat fish. Unfortunately for us we were fishing for bass and this is not the place for them. Plus the lake is shallow so a light wind can make it very rough. Due to these issues we decided to cut our stay short. We had reserved for two separate stays and cancelled the second one. A word to the wise, be very sure of your stay, once it is booked you CANNOT get a refund. Even though we cancelled the second stay a week in advance the Trinity River Authority (who runs the lake and this campground) does not grant any refunds, EVER. I guess they think that their authority gives them a license to steal! We lost $40.00 to them! - Rick & Karen
