14 Parks near Tatum, Texas
Aug 2016 - $17.00
Rate reflects no access fees due to Texas State Park Pass. We don't normally give 10's to parks without FHU, but this park deserves it. This is a gem of a state park! Quiet, clean and well kept. This is the nicest state park staff we have ever come across. The park manager is present and active; the office staff is helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Ranger staff, maintenance and camp hosts were all visible and friendly. They welcomed us and went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay. Power was steady at 122V and 55PSI for water. No sewer, but there is a double dump station. It was very clean and provided a trash can and water hook up. They have an island you can access by a walking bridge with picnic tables and trails all thru it. Great bird watching, large boat launch and numerous places to fish and enjoy nature.
There are 2 camping loops, one is 30 amp only, the other is larger, but they only offer about six 50 amp sites at this time. Staff told us they are updating their electricity to the park and hope to have more 50A in the near future. Most are fairly level. The park was quiet while we were here. There are some camping shelters for tenting and a couple of cabins. We plan to return to this park in the future. - Fixn2gocamp

We stayed for a week at lakefront site #52 for $17/night. Non-lakefront is $13. Expect an additional daily entrance fee *per person,* but since we expect to stay at TX state parks for at least 3 weeks, buying the annual pass for $70 will pay itself off. The sites are pretty well spaced apart, some are quite private, but many of them are sloped and too short. The park requires you to park your vehicle on the pavement so we had to park ours sideways while we were unhooked from our 30' 5th wheel. Each site comes with a fire pit, picnic table, hanging hooks, tent pad, and sometimes a cover for the table (ours came with one). No sewer at any of the sites. There is only one bath house for each of the camping loops, and extremely outdated, one of the worst I've come across in my 7 months of full-time RVing. My first shower only lasted 5 minutes because the hot water ran out. Now, I'm wishing I would have listened to the other reviewers and stayed in a regular site away from the lake due to the noise emitted by the coal trains and power plant. It seems to be the loudest at night, lasting just around midnight before it finally quiets down. You can sometimes feel the vibrations from the noise through the RV unit (lasts just a short while). Our Verizon MiFi got 2 bars of LTE, voice was consistent. Got 2 TV channels over the air: some station named COZI (played 60's-80's shows) and a Spanish one. I hate having to write such a poor review for a state park, but this one really does need some improvement to lengthen the parking pads, update the bath houses, and finish building covers for the other sites picnic tables. They can't do anything about the power plant, which sadly will keep us from ever returning on our way back through in the future. - Sara C.

$17 per night was for a mostly level asphalt pad with 50-amp electric and water site in the Bee Tree campground. We do have the TX Parks Pass we purchased for $70 (it allows access to all 90 TX state parks)-otherwise it's $17 per night plus a $3 per person daily entry fee. Sites are generous dirt/sand/dead leaves areas with a picnic table and fire ring. The whole park is loaded with different types of tall trees and low vegetation. There were abundant types of birds flitting about. The night sky is very dark so the stars are brilliant. All the facilities were in good condition and the park staff was very friendly and helpful. There are miles of multi-use and hiking trails. We could hear the power plant and the trains but their noises were in the background. This campground is located about four miles from small town Tatum where there is a very nice grocery store and a couple of restaurants. The park does not have public Wi-Fi access. AT&T and Verizon service was full bars of 4G LTE. We received 15 over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. - DD Rolling Ranch

Easy access, sites a bit unlevel for long motor homes but are workable. Roads are a bit rough. Utilities good with reliable electric and good water pressure. 30 sites total, 10 pull throughs. Corral available for horses. Very nice club house/meeting hall with kitchen and rear deck, bathrooms/showers, and laundry. We found it difficult to walk our small dogs due to many residents allowing their large dogs to run loose (not vicious but quite intimidating), but otherwise enjoyed our stay. - AFChap

We stayed in a pull through for $400.00 a month. We chose pull through because we have a 42 ft big rig. Do not have to pay electric if in a pull through. Park really not good for big rigs. Too close for comfort. Very nice people work and live at park, especially front office staff. She is the best. Washers and dryers area is very clean. I would stay again for overnight. We flooded at our trailer during heavy rains. - sherry whorton

We have stayed at this park numerous times. Per the last reviews it is only 1/4 mile from I 20 but great convenience. The restrooms, laundry are very clean, the staff are very friendly. Good pull through sites. The only "small" concern is their dog area has a lot of stickers/cockerburs which tend to get all over the dogs but lots of room for the dogs. Wish this small concern could be addressed. But love this small/family owned camp area. - Dixie Darling

Advertised as a Passport America park, but would not honor their discount. Office was closed on Sunday. NOISY park: our site was 150 feet from a busy 24 hour convenience store and 300 feet from a BUSY intersection. Loose dogs in the park. Park was clean, easy to get into and out of with big sites. - Hayseed

Campsite is a sloped, gravel lot divided into forty serviced sites. There are no trees in the camping area. There is a small children's playground, a dog walk, and a pond adjacent. The washroom and laundry building is tidy and clean. - Gord0

This "park" is not like its website's glowing description. It is actually a sloping stone and gravel parking lot in front of a small, fenced in farm pond. There are a few permanent residents, the majority of whom appear to be transient workers. The individual spaces are roomy and none of them are level due to the generally sloping grade of the land and lack of any attempt at terracing to provide level individual spaces. We tried spaces 3 and 33 and both were off side-to-side by about 6 inches. The owner told us he had plenty of 2x4s to lend us. There is a busy highway nearby and road noise is obtrusive if you leave your windows open. The only grass is a small strip bordering the park and the area around the pond. You can fish for a $5 fee. The laundry/bath area has two individual toilet/shower rooms each for men and women. The wifi signal was non-existent in space 3 (furthest from the office) and very weak in 33 nearer the office.
This is a very basic park, barely okay for an overnight at the Passport America rate. - leorah

Quiet! For an overnight stop, this little family owned and run park is perfect. 2 Miles from the I-20, but million miles away from the roar of the traffic, and next to a pasture full of cows. All Gravel, easy in and out. I would stop here again, and if I needed to stay in the area I would stay here again. Wifi was good. - TravelPaul

Quiet, clean and well-maintained park. Far from the highway. - Dead Mule John
Jan 2017 - $41.00
Very nice park with paved roads and paved sites. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. There is a small dog run but a large open field adjacent to the park that can be used for pet exercise. Verizon reception was good and the park has good WiFi. Cable is also included in the rate. Water quality is very good. The park has a high percentage of permanent residents but all of the sites were very orderly and clean. We will definitely stay here again at some point. - Don & Jean G.
Nov 2016 - $42.00
Access is good. Interior roads are very wide and paved. Sites are long, wide, level and paved. Utilities are very good. Small dog park (could be a lot bigger). But, lots of areas in a nature area to walk dogs on leash. Staff is very friendly. Landscaping is beautiful. The long term campers keep their sites neat. There is a gun club next door, and you can hear the shooting into the afternoon, and then is disappears. You can't hear it in the coach. We got a premium sited - but not sure what made it premium . . . it looked like the others. We have stayed here before, and will again. This place is a gem. - okdiver

Nice park the owners put lots of money to make the place nice.
Only problem I had was the water pressure. We couldn't take a
shower in the rv. No I don't like public showers and I didn't go
into them. Two very nice laundry at a fair price. Parks very clean employees very helpful.
I'll stop again..
Most of there sites are pull through 90 plus% are nice and level. - JustDon

No complaints except wifi was not available. Front desk clerk was courteous but clueless about the wifi system which I feel is extremely inadequate. It is an important feature to me. - SA Seats

Stayed for one night, nice concrete pad. Very disappointed with connections, were located at the end of the space which was long. We were towing our car and did not want to disconnect. Had to have extensions for all 3 connections. - HHitch

Don't stay here, all permanent residents, not an option. - cottonwood

Very nice park with great managment. Very clean and well done shower and toilets, laundry, store, and office. Road noise is low. We would definitely stay again. - Greg Luckett

Green Acres RV Park is a motorhome/travel trailer and fifth wheel friendly park with good access to other nearby towns along S.R. 59 between Nacogdoches and Marshall, TX. The manager/owners are good folks, good rates. Beware of parking near permanent Mobile Homes due to the lack of space between each MH. Good laundry facilities. Well maintained landscaping. Unpaved roads in the hot season are dusty, real dusty. I'd stay there again for a few days/weeks. - Landman
Nov 2016 - $12.00
We stayed here for a couple of nights using the Passport America rate of $12.50. It is sparse, but clean. Sites are all back-in and not really level, but you can level. Owner was very nice. The park is on the outskirts of Henderson, but there was some traffic noise on our weekend stay. Nothing that would disrupt your sleep. The park itself was quiet and peaceful. - User2260
Sep 2016 - $12.00
Certainly not a destination park, but certainly great for a night or two. The owner is very friendly and although very spartan, the park has large sites, plenty of space between sites with gravel pads and grass for each site. As a previous posted stated, the electrical boxes are installed in such a way that it is difficult to plug in and probably impossible to plug in a portable surge protector. Would stay here again. - nmunozjr
Oct 2015 - $13.00
Price reflects the Passport America discount. This is a newer park with nicely spaced back in sites widened to accommodate a second vehicle. Sites are packed asphalt and many are slightly unlevel front to rear. The pedestals have been installed way too low. It was difficult to install my 50 amp cord and impossible to plug in my surge protector. Most sewers are located too high.
Passport America web site has the address on 2068 State Route 328 (Van Buren St). It is really on State Route 323.
We called ahead of time to verify the availability of an overnight site. The owner answered and said that sites were available, but that she was out of town. She recommended a site and explained how to leave our payment. WiFi was not working when we arrived. Another RVer, who had been in contact with the owner said that the WiFi would be restored at 4:30 PM. It was. - BobatRetama
