Have stayed here before and will return again. Site #E13 long and pretty level, shaded, near restrooms and showers. Our site had 30 amp service. Park is clean and maintained. Only negative is several campers do not follow all the rules. Their dogs were allowed to run free. We camped at Clear Spring COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We really liked this campground in spite of the nearby tornado warnings. But the restrooms would have provided adequate shelter (probably). There are some really nice waterfront sites, try for those! The sites in the "woods" are fine and did not give us a closed in feeling. The sites are well placed. We were able to get some sat TV channels and our Verizon phone and hot spot were weak, but worked. We would return. We camped at Clear Spring COE in a Travel Trailer.

Lakefront site. Water and electricity. Deck overlooking the lake. Very beautiful. Lots of neighbors but sites are not packed together. Had to raise one side 3" as not level. We camped at Clear Spring COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Price reflects Senior Interagency Pass discount. Really nice COE campground. Great lake access. Only negative is the smell from the paper mill nearby. Not always present, but when it is, it's nasty. We camped at Clear Spring COE in a Motorhome.

After we picked up the trash left at our site, backing in and setting up was a breeze. We enjoyed the walking trails in the park and loved seeing the deer as we walked. Campground was quiet at night. Our only issue in camping at D-6 was the ants that invaded our trailer the second day. We camped at Clear Spring COE in a Travel Trailer.

Nice quiet park, paved roads and sites. We were able to get satellite tv on site b8. We have Verizon a little slow but worked. Our site needed some minor pick up a lot of small trash. I guess today's campers don't know how to pick up. Would recommend, and camp there again. We camped at Clear Spring COE in a Motorhome.
The rate reflects a 50% Senior Pass discount. This is a very nice Corp of Engineer campground on Lake Wright Patman with many nice modern sites. Some sites are spectacular with decks and great views of the lake. The sites near the lake are fairly close together and there is little vegetation for privacy. The sites a little ways away from the lake offer a little more privacy. It is fairly quiet during the week, but the weekends are very busy, primarily with local campers. Campers seem to like to put out a lot of very bright lights which is certainly detrimental to an outdoor camping experience. Also, a lot of locals spend many weeks at a time there. At night there is often the smell from the paper mill, which is very unpleasant. Our Verizon phone and data plan worked well. We were able to get satellite at a lake-front site. The utilities were good and strong with 50 amp service. The folks at the front booth were friendly and efficient. Overall, this is an OK camping experience.

The rate is the senior rate. This is the most wonderful COE park we have ever stayed at, and we have stayed at many. The people who checked us in were very friendly and helpful. The grounds were beautifully cared for. There is considerable space between rigs which allows a lot of privacy. The parking surface is asphalt and our site was very level. The water and electric services were OK. We were able to get both DirecTV and Verizon from our lake front site. We would return here again. We camped at Clear Spring COE in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects a 50% senior discount. First, a note, the noted flooding is past. It is a beautiful campground and could be a great place to camp, except there are problems. It is very crowded, even during midweek in October. The reason that it is busy is that the local folks have found a way to get around the stay limits and stay there for weeks, even months, at a time. They set up pretty much permanent sites and they use lots of lights. It is not a camping experience, but more like an old campground with lots of permanent campers. Too bad. We would stay here again for passing through, but not as a destination campground. We camped at Clear Spring COE in a Motorhome.
Really nice park, trees, trees, trees, and tall! The volunteers at the front gate make you feel like family. One of the nicest COE's that I have stayed. Lots of space between sites. If you want to use a satellite dish, well good luck, the trees are so tall and so thick, it may be next to impossible to get a signal. I had to run about 200 feet of cable to a clear spot. I will stay here again. We camped at Clear Spring COE in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate reflects a senior discount. The main road into the campground is still closed because of flooding, as noted by an earlier reviewer. Also, part of the campground is closed because of flooding. We have stayed at this CG before and, had I reviewed it then, I would have given it a higher rating. The CG is nice but it was very, very crowded. That would have been OK had the rules been enforced, but they were not. Even though the rules say that cars must be parked on pavement, cars and boats were parked everywhere. Many of the sites had many more than the allowed number of campers. This made getting around difficult and the campground to be rather unpleasant. The crowds were probably because of spring break, and because parts of this and other nearby campgrounds were closed because of the flooding. So do come to this CG, but try to pick times when it will be less crowded. We camped at Clear Spring COE in a Motorhome.
Campground was dificult to get to because recent flooding had closed main road to campground. Detour was via small alternative roads with tight corners and low branches. One campground loop was closed but all others were open. B Loop is waterfront and 50amp with several sites featuring decks overlooking the lake right at your patio door. All sites were heavily treed. Interior roads are a little tight for big rigs but workable. All sites were paved with concrete patio sites with picnic tables. Shower house was clean. Playground was just a set of swings. Reservations reccomended for big rigs or waterfront campsites. Overall impression was beautiful campground with great COE rate. We camped at Clear Spring COE in a Fifth Wheel.
Shore Services: 50amp, Sewer good, Water @ 45psi -- AT&T Cell Phone: Strong -- Sprint Air Card: weak signal. Improved with Freedom Antenna. Site: B11 Good Asphalt & Level -- Site Size: 70ft long -- Site Closeness: lots of room -- Roads: Asphalt -- Directv Satellite: Good signal on lake sites -- Discounts: Golden Passport -- Payment: Credit Card -- As previously noted avoid the Steep Railroad crossing on Clear Springs Road. I would have drug the bottom of the trailer if I had not previously installed larger axles which raised the trailer about 3 inches. To get to the park from Hwy 67 go to FM 2148, east of park and enter on Sorsby Lane about 3 miles south. From Hwy 59 go north on FM2148 to Sorsby Lane. The phone number shown is for the COE Reservations. You need the park number 903-838-8636 to speak to the park host. It had been raining a lot before we arrived and the A sites were under water. This also caused Sorsby Lane to be flooded, so we had to use Trexler Rd, a narrow road which follows the railroad tracks to FM 1218 and then to FM 2148. This is a rough road but passable. This is a beautiful park. I will stay here again. We camped at Clear Spring COE in a Fifth Wheel.
