This campground is on the shore of Lake Wright Patman. The lake itself is nearly 20 miles long and around four miles across and it has several great campgrounds along it's shore. Rocky Point is one of the good ones. The campsites are beautifully laid out: paved parking surrounded by big graveled pads, barbecue grills, a utility table, fire pit, and concrete picnic tables. All 124 campsites have electric and water. Several have 50 amps and a few offer sewer hookups. A large number of the sites overlook the lake, providing wonderful views, however none of the sewer sites are right on the lake. During busy times you'll probably need a reservation to snag a 50 amp, full hookup site. There's also a big boat ramp. One slight negative is the proximity of the paper mill at Domino, TX. When the wind blows from the east the smell is in the air and its an unforgettable smell. Happily, the mill is to the east and that's not the most common wind direction. Because the campground is nicely wooded I had to do a long coax run to a spot where I could get satellite TV. It seemed that no matter what I tried my Verizon cell signal fluctuated between 3G and 4G but, in general, I was able to get online without too much of a problem. This great campground is just a few minutes off of highway 59 and is a really nice place to stay. We camped at Rocky Point COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Another very nice COE campground. Paved roads, lots of trees, beautiful views of lake. Some slope to some sites, and trees close to some sites may prevent awnings from being extended. We would stay here again. We camped at Rocky Point COE in a Motorhome.
This is one of the nicest COE campgrounds we have camped in. The park is very shaded with good asphalt roads and level asphalt RV pads. In addition, each campsite has a raised packed gravel pad which has a fire ring, picnic table and grill on it. There is enough room on the pad for lawn chairs, etc. The number of sites that are suitable for satellite use are somewhat limited due to the trees. Also, on some sites it may be impossible to fully extend awnings due to the trees. We camped here on two different days, a Saturday night and a Tuesday night over the past two weeks. The park was less than 1/2 full and very quiet on both nights. The park is probably very full on holidays and spring break, thus it is much noisier than normal then. Rate reflects Senior discount.

As I have mentioned before - we love ACOE campgrounds. We have stayed at another ACOE before and since this was on the way to our destination we again decided to stay here overnight. Many paved sites overlooking the lake with a gorgeous view. Unfortunately, for us it was pouring rain during our stay this time. Even though we had trees around us we were able to get Verizon Internet and TV satellite. Price reflects Golden Age Passport. During peak season I would definitely recommend reservations.

Very beautiful views at this park. Nice hiking trail which leads to Piney Point Park, but we did encounter wild hogs on the trail so beware! The shower area was clean with hot water. Pet friendly, decent areas to walk dogs. There did appear to be some long term campers here whose extra vehicle's were spilling into adjacent sites. Had to ask one person to move his truck so we could get into our site. The local's do use this campground as a party area on the weekends. They congregate between the lakefront sites watching their friends out on jet skis who are riding way to close to the shore. Park ranger said that the area between the sites is "public" and they were welcome to continue their party, this was a group of about 25 people! Not sure if we will return, strange thing with the local folks. We camped at Rocky Point COE in a Travel Trailer.

Price reflects Golden Passport discount. Park was a little difficult for us to locate, but it is a beautiful setting on a lake. Lots of trees made satellite reception difficult, but we did get a signal and had a good Verizon signal as well. I was a little surprised to see some longer term campers and it was fairly dark at night but the stars were nice. We only stayed two nights and had to clean the tops of our slides as the walnuts and acorns were falling. We would definitely stay again! We camped at Rocky Point COE in a Motorhome.
This is one of the best Corp parks that I have stayed in. Very clean, very spacious sites, and close to Atlanta, TX. (12 Miles), It is close to Super Walmart for groceries. I am definitely staying again when I am in the area. We camped at Rocky Point COE in a Motorhome.
When we arrived, we had to take another site because they were cutting trees down at our reserved site, which had sewer hook up. We were able to get a site on the water with a most beautiful view. The staff were very nice. Sites are well spaced with concrete picnic tables. There is a lot of privacy between sites. It is very quiet here, a lot of nice shade trees, and the grounds are well kept. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Rocky Point COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Great COE park. We paid senior rate with Golden Access card. We chose a site without sewer so we had the water view. Some roads are tight for motorhomes but not a problem if you go slow and be careful. Computer wireless card service was poor but phone was OK. Our site was nice and level but some are a bit sloped. All in all we spent a great 6 days here and will come back. We camped at Rocky Point COE in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park. Sites are large with a nice picnic table. We camped here in a 45ft motorhome and found some of the turns very tight. A lot of the sites are unlevel. There are a few sites with full hook-ups. Convenient dump station. We camped at Rocky Point COE in a Motorhome.
This is probably the nicest campground we've ever stayed in. All of the roads and sites are paved (blacktop) and extremely shady due to all the trees throughout the park. All of the sites are huge...our site was on the end and just our patio area alone was bigger than a 3-car garage. Each site has a picnic table, fire ring, charcoal grill, prep table and trash can. The restrooms and showers were very clean. There were quite a few kids, but the park was very quiet after dark. A very nice paved boat ramp is right there at the campground. We would definitely stay here again or at any other Corps of Engineers park. We camped at Rocky Point COE in a Motorhome.

Waterfront sites have easy access to the lake, not a steep cliff or long walk through the weeds. Sites very well maintained. Most of the better sites are back in. It's best to get here before sundown so you don't get lost, it covers a pretty large area. With the Golden Age passport it's half price. We camped at Rocky Point COE in a Travel Trailer.
