Small park on the edge of Lake Waco. There is some construction making entry a little difficult but should be over soon. Good signage. Park is older, a little neglected. Grass hadn't been cut in a long time, was over 2 feet high most places, playground overgrown as were a couple of sites. Some sites not level, but ours was ok. Electric was steady, water pressure good. Our site hadn't been cleaned in a while, ashes in pit, trash around. Biggest complaint was loose dogs from what appear to be workers and longer term guests. When we mentioned to the gate attendant that one dog would not stay out of our campsite, they just shrugged and mumbled. 2 trailers with 4 dogs, dogs were constantly without leashes and allowed to bark and run. We probably would not stay here again because of the loose dogs. It is a convenient park to stay in for visiting the Waco area. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Motorhome.

We have found a really nice park in Waco Texas, Midway Park RV Park on Lake Waco. It is a Corps of Engineers park with 50amp full hookups. Both of our GPS devices brought us right to the park. We reserved and paid in advance so check-in at the kiosk was easy. The roads and site are gravel and big rig friendly. There is a lot of room between sites, which we like. We had a pull-thru and it was long enough for both vehicles. Hookups were fairly convenient. We had a good line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. Not all sites would be able to get satellite reception so be careful if that is important to you. Verizon 4g and cellphone signal strength was pretty good. There was no free park wifi. The best part of the park though had to be the price. Since it is a COE park our National Parks Senior Pass got us 50% off making the week less than $100. We would not hesitate to stay here again as we didn't realize how big Waco was with lots of things to see and do, plus you can't beat the price. We just want to visit when it isn't so dang hot. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is very to a busy road and is very loud with traffic all night including big trucks. The trees are in need of trimming back so they don't scrape the top of the rv's trying to get into the sites. The sites on top of the hill are 50 amps but there are only a few. The sites near the lake at the bottom of the hill are 30 amps and has a great view of the lake. It's shady in most sites. The grass and weeds are very high. No mowing has been done at this park in many months. We were there for July 4th and the park was full. There were lots of campers in tents and the grass was so high it was bad to not be able to see a snake. We love the location of this park. It is on the beautiful lake and close to town but it needs lots of maintenance that it's not getting. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Motorhome.

Paved interior roads and sites. Covered Picnic table at each site. 50 amp locations are right off a very busy highway so lots of traffic noise all the time including at night. Too much noise for us, we will not stay here again for that reason. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Motorhome.

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 stayed 3 nights in site #3 (W/E only) which is right on the lake with a great view and easy access to the boat ramp. It was a double wide site which made parking the boat easy. It has a nice cement patio. It is right off of Hwy 6 at the Twin Bridges, so cell and TV reception are excellent and it's very convenient to whatever you need in Waco. We would certainly stay here again for camping and easy fishing access to the south end of Lake Waco. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Travel Trailer.

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.
