Rate reflects half-price national park pass. We stayed in the upper pull-through section near the road, and it was a bit noisy from the highway as others have said. For us it was worth it to have the full hookups, since we stayed a week. The campground is on the smaller side for a COE, and it seems popular for the boat launch and fishing. There were a few tent campers, and on the weekend the place filled up. My main complaint about the restrooms and showers is that although it seemed they hosed them down, they didn't then clean out the drain, which ran along the wall behind the toilets. People kept propping the door open, which allows all the bugs to come inside, and there were plenty! Of course, the bigger beetles like to hang out on the trash that was stuck in the drain! Yuck. There was only one sink, no counter, no mirror, no paper towels and the dryer didn't work. No hooks to hang a towel from. Didn't use the showers, especially after I saw a giant spider heading that direction. The park is convenient to shopping and not far from downtown Waco, but if you want quiet you may want to check out other COE campgrounds on other parts of the lake. A note for those with very tall rigs - when approaching from the east, you exit and go under a 14' bridge under the highway to get on the other side where the park is. If you're concerned about that at all, you can go all the way across the water and come back, and then you'll exit right at the campground entrance. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Magnolia Market is nearby, free parking in the back. There's a free trolley that runs from there thru downtown. Go EARLY, things get crowded quickly. It's an experience, but the store has lots of mass-produced foreign-made stuff and it's super-expensive. Downtown try Jake's Texas Tea House. Cute diner theme, try the chopped caesar salad. Perfection, and then they add bacon! Yum! The other food was excellent too, lots of homemade options. See the Waco Mammoth Nat'l Monument - very interesting!

We love stopping at COE parks! They are lovely and we enjoy being near water. This one is on Waco Lake. Check in was smooth and easy. There are a number of pull throughs and they are closer to the highway but we chose that instead of one closer to the lake for convenience. The hookups were toward the back of the site so there wasn't enough room to leave the car hooked up. We were spending 2 nights and touring Waco so that wasn't a big problem. We just couldn't hook it up the night before to be ready to go. Our motorhome is well insulated so the road noise didn't bother us. If you have an America the Beautiful Pass, the price can't be beat! This is a small park so make your reservations early! We camped at Midway Park COE in a Motorhome.

Our reserv. was for a FHU site 30. Upon arrival, I noticed many tree branches in the driveway to the FHU sites hanging rather low. The limbs at site 30 were so low I asked if another site was available. The attendant did get us moved to site 29 which had no trees to contend with. All of the FHU sites are long and can accommodate any length RV. Strong voltage. Muci. ptable water. Our site had a large patio shelter with cement pad with picnic table. We did not use the restrooms, but looked inside and they had just been cleaned. In the exit driveway, again tree limbs were hanging well into driveway - told gate attendant that we will be exiting from the entrance. Asked when limbs will get trimmed - eyes rolled. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Motorhome.

Note for the other 30-amp sites that closer to the lake. Some of the sites are double sized sites. These double sites have 2-20/30 amp electric posts & 2 water spigots. Very large double sites, some having a beautiful overlook of the lake. If we had not needed 50-amp electric ourselves, would have taken one of those beautiful double sized lakeview sites! Call Midway to find out the site numbers! Lots to do & explore in Waco - we use Tripadvisor to guide us!

Nice being on the lake. Our site had WE only, 30A. A whole fleet of lawn mowers began at 0700 hrs., don't plan on sleeping late. Garbage & dog crap were unaddressed. And the bath/showers, oh boy, that was a mini hazmat scene. Used toilet paper scattered on the floor, old rags scattered, very unsanitary conditions! Maybe they can hit a happy medium, less emphasis/later attention on the ant-infested grass & more effort on cleaning toilets/showers. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Motorhome.

We had a lot of trouble locating this park. There a lot of full time campers here. The facilities were fine. We do stay at several corps parks and was surprised that it had not been mowed. Usually they are very well kept. This park would not be on our list to stay at again. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Motorhome.

This is our 4th visit to this nice COE park. The park was in good shape when we arrived but after several inches of rain this past week, the boat ramp is now flooded and some sites in low areas under the trees are a boggy mess. The Corps was very busy cleaning up so I'm sure the park will be up to speed again shortly. There's nothing they can do when the lake rises so fast. This was spring break for Waco kids and every site was full despite the rain. Book your site online at recreation.gov. Nothing much has changed from my previous reviews. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in #8 for 6 nights which had ample room and hookups were easy. The sight is gravel which is ok, but leaves and sticks around which we cleaned. View of the lake was the best part. Quiet until the weekend, then fairly noisy. One night 2 card horns were being blasted at 11pm for about 10 minutes. BUT, the worst was the restrooms and showers! They were not touched the entire time. TP all gone by the last morning. Showers and doors broken. It's a shame since it could be a really nice park with just minimal attendence. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Travel Trailer.

No big changes since my March 2015 review. However, the park seems to be in disrepair perhaps due to recent heavy rains. The boat ramp is closed and the paved road is crumbling in places. Grass & weeds were 2 foot high. I'm guessing the Army Corps has its hands full and just hasn't gotten to this park to clean up. Hopefully they will have the park back up to speed soon.

Our first stay was booked the same day as our stay. There were two pull thru sites that fit our 40', 50amp, with 4 slides. We selected site 29 sight unseen and we arrived the site was covered with low hanging trees completely covering the site. We went back to the office and requested another sight if possible. Renea, office worker, was kind enough to move us 2 sites up to 31 which was completely open. The sight was level and wide with a nice covered table area. We can hear traffic noise..but we have a nice site to live while visiting Waco, TX. The campground was neatly mowed and other than one camping site filled with weekend camper cluther that looks to be used by several individuals..the campground was very clean. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Motorhome.

Wooded, shady sites. The position of some of the trees made backing into our site a little difficult. Very quiet. The main road is paved, but fairly narrow. The position of some of the trees and other campers' vehicles can make it a little challenging to negotiate with a big rig. The general appearance and cleanliness of the campground is excellent. Some sites had the picnic table located above or below the level of the RV site, but the steps were very adequate. Our site was water and electricity only, and the connections were in very good condition and easy to hook up to. The park is very pretty, with lots of trees. Our site was plenty long for our 39' 5th wheel and truck. However, there were trees on either side of our site's entrance, a stump in the middle of the entrance and a severe drop-off at the driver's side (when backing) of the site's entrance that made getting the RV into position somewhat difficult. Even considering the challenges we had, I would definitely camp here again.- We camped at Midway Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Do not follow Google Maps directions to this campground! They will take you to the city park of the community of Woodway, TX. It's close to Midway Park, but the directions will take you through very tight neighborhood streets. Instead, stay on Hwy 6 and take the park's exit from there.

This park has six 50A FHU pull through sites near Highway 6 and the rest are 30A W/E back-in sites nestled in the woods. The pull through sites are well spaced and most are good for satellite. Highway noise calms at night. The wooded sites vary quite a bit from long level back-ins overlooking the lake to sites at the top of inclines. The park has few rules, which appeals to some. You might see 6 cars and 5 tents clustered around one site as we did during Spring Break. Families were having a great time. The grass was getting long which previous reviewers have noted as a problem. I saw a clean up crew come to each site after it was vacated to sweep and clean the pits. Big Rigs should stay in the pull thrus although some of the back-ins would be Big Rig suitable too. You can choose your site online. ATT & Verizon had strong signals.

This worked fine for us while traveling through TX. Our only complaint was few light branches drug on the roofline of our tall Alfa motorhome. It was nice and quiet till morning and we could hear distant road noise. No problem. We had full service hookups. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Motorhome.

We stayed in site 24 at Midway Park COE near Woodway, Texas in February 2015. Very long gravel pad quite unlevel side to side. 30A electric, water, and sewer. Shaded site with many trees. Nice picnic table and fire ring. Less road noise than the 50A/sewer sites. Very friendly staff. Some 30A/water sites with great lake views. Was told they hope to upgrade some 30A sites to 50A. Would stay here again. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.
