Once a KOA now a Good Sam. Staff friendly and helpful. The roads are dirt/gravel, sites are not level (lots of pads). This park currently mostly occupied by pipeline workers. Sites are fairly well managed, and clean. Full time road noise from I-35 but not terrible. Bathrooms & laundry are clean. Would stay here again due to location between Waco and Dallas, without being in Dallas population. - Foxie Box

For an overnight stay on our way across country, we selected this park based on its 9/9/9 rating and our Good Sam membership (GS) and mapping tool. By no means did it meet a "GS" rating for a 9/9/9! When we arrived, we were given a site between 2 campers (with about 2 feet between each of us) that appeared to have been there a VERY long time. A roaming pit bull mix was making his way around each site unleashed - a serious concern given we had our 2 small elderly canines with us! By 1:15 am, we were awoken by next door partiers who decided to bring their partying outside no less than 3 different times underneath our bedroom slide only to keep us awake ALL night! With a 'Quiet time Policy" stated on the Park's paperwork, there was still no one to call, so we kindly asked our neighbors to quiet down. They apologized and finally took their 'party' inside. Be aware this park sits next to the highway with some road noise & at least 3 trains through the night. Have a call into the owner but haven't heard back from him. Very disappointed and sleepless in Texas.... - AZkaktuskid

Older park with gravel roads and tight turns. Sites are gravel also. Appears upgrades are in progress but facilities show wear and tear. Mens bathroom was not clean, womens was clean but had construction materials lying about. Upper bathrooms had no hot water. - browne07

Stopped here for three nights on our way home from the valley. Very happy that we did. We found the park to be very nice. Manager was very friendly and accommodating. What we noticed was that most of the long term were in the back and neat. New asphalt on all the front roads. New gravel on many sites. Most are level side to side and slightly lower in front. Although we did not use the restrooms they looked to be very clean. We did do laundry and it was excellent and inexpensive. Yes, we did hear the xway. (the park is on the frontage road) No cable but our antenna worked great. Wifi was usable but our att hotspot was better. The breakfast was great and well worth a good tip. Good hookup. And last but not least Waco was a great place to visit. We will be back and definently will be staying here. - wbm49

Very convenient park right on the service road for I-35. Yes, there is noise from the big trucks going by at 75 mph but we always bring earplugs for that possibility at night and when we had the TV on we didn't notice. Theres a big grassy area behind the park so lots of space to walk the dog They serve a free breakfast in the morning. Its a nice idea. They do not take credit cards, only cash or check. - UllaPool

Listed as a resort. Way far from a resort. Gravel spots almost level. WiFi good 1st night 2nd night off and on. No TV hookups at all. No cable. They list free hot breakfast then ask for donations. Just not my kind of a resort. Just a OK spot to overnight. - BAMA

Owner jumped into my truck and backed my camper into a spot. Concrete pads, nice picnic tables with benches. Owner is great. I had to find him on our second day to pay him. Nice laundry room, everything worked great. WiFi worked ok. If in the area we will come back to this park. - Chuck McC

The Owner/Manager makes this park. He is constantly working and cleaning the grounds. He would bend over backwards to ensure his guests have a great experience. Nothing fancy here, but we would return to this park whenever we come through Waco. Good utilities, concrete pad with very nice patio tables. Spacious sites, plenty of shade, and perfect location for seeing the sites in Waco (Magnolia Market). - Sea Shells

What a friendly place to stay. The campground is treed and all have good sized concrete pads. This is an older park, but well maintained. There are 2 bathrooms gender neutral, that are fully equipped. The owner takes pride in his place and gives great service with a smile. - Dksnapshots

Very nice Corps park on the banks of Lake Waco. Close to the airport but not a lot of plane traffic while we were there. Good AT&T mobile coverage. Gates close at 10 pm. Covered picnic table, fire ring and grill at site. Overall, very comfortable. We will stay here again if in the area. - Velociraptor

This is yet another beautiful COE park on the shores of Lake Waco. As its name implies, it is right next to the airport which makes it very convenient if you are touring in the Waco area. The airport doesn't get many flights so that's not a problem. What is a problem is the signage for getting here. Your GPS has no problem getting you to Skeet Eason Road but most likely will direct you to the day-use area instead of the RV park. It is marked as Airport Park Beach. Don't turn there; go another half mile down the road to Airport Park on the left. The signs for this turn are poor and don't have the normal COE logo. Even within the park the signage is poor. We were in site 22 which is a decent-sized pull-through on the lake. However, the signs show "right turn for boat ramp" and "right turn for sites" but what they don't say is that the two turns are on successive roads, one right after the other. Not too much of a problem since there was plenty of room to turn around at the boat ramp. All in all it is a great place to stay and isn't more than 10 minutes off I-35. Our site had a huge metal picnic table and a shelter. - docj

Always enjoy staying here when we come to Waco/Baylor University. With a 36' HM and a tow dolly, we use Google Earth to pick a good site that allows us to pull through. The Reserve America\Recreation.gov web site descriptions are NOT always correct as to access, sewer hookups. You can always call the office for clarification if necessary.
The sites are great. Paved and level. Most have a covered picnic table. All have a fire ring & water. We chose a nice lake-side spot without trees since the weather was expected to be poor and we figured the satellite was going to be used (it was). A number of the sites are treed and that's a good thing in the Texas summer. Again, Google Earth is your friend.
The RV sites aren't close together so there's a modicum of privacy which is nice. Around dusk or sunrise is a good time to go for a long walk and see the wildlife around the area. Deer are all over the place. Lots of roadrunners and the usual collection of other Texas critters as well.
All-in-all a great COE operation. - GTN_and_Catz

I stayed here for one night and luckily was the only camper staying there. Lots of large trees and many spots right on the lake. Really spacious spots and easy to park. Also, herds of deer were milling around the campers. I would like to come back to spend more time and visit the park. - ProRVer

This park is good for bike riding and walking. Some sites have a great view of the lake. Access to the park is easy coming from the east. - glbaker44

This is a COE campground so it accepts Golden Age Passports. There are two campgrounds on the lake operated by COE. The west side was closed for the season when we were there. There were large level sites with nice views of the lake. The bathrooms were 1950 cinder block and nasty looking. Still we would go back to this park since we don't use the bathrooms anyway. - slowpez

We were at Lake Whitney State Park near Whitney, Texas with our camping group, the North Texas Camping Association, in February 2017. They have 40 full hookup, pull through, shaded sites in the Horseshoe Camping Area. We were in site 34. They also have some water/electric RV sites nearer the lake. There are a couple of good hiking trails. Whitney is nearby with restaurants, groceries and fuel. Walmart 15 miles away in Hillsboro. We've been here many times and will return. - drfife

We wanted to take our Casita out and shake off some of this cold-spell cabin fever. We needed a short camping break. So during the second week of February we decided to take advantage of the off-season State Park rates (only $84 a week for full hook-ups). We picked near-by Lake Whitney State Park. A short drive south from Dallas on Interstate 35, take the Hillsboro exit. At the Hillsboro exit, turn right on State Highway 22 and then take State Highway 22 west to Whitney. Then follow the signs to Lake Whitney State Park. The park is located three miles west of Whitney on FM 1244 on the shores of Lake Whitney.
While only about an hour away from the Dallas-Ft. Worth metro-mess, Lake Whitney State Park is still far enough out to enjoy the stars and dark night skies.
They have 43 campsites with full hook-ups. The sites are well-spaced so you don't get cramped. All RV sites are mostly level front-to-back and level side-to-side so minimum leveling is needed. The electric and water hook-ups looked new.
Facilities were spotlessly clean. We even had free Wi-Fi!
Deer are everywhere, turkey are common and there is camping, hiking, mountain biking, picnicking, boating, fishing, water skiing, nature study and excellent birding. We saw more beautiful bright red Cardinals this week than we have ever seen anywhere else. In warmer months there is swimming (buoyed area -no lifeguard on duty), scuba diving, and a small beach. The Park Headquarters has "loaner" fishing tackle, rods and reels.
When I say deer are everywhere: the deer are EVERYWHERE. We saw large herds of deer every morning and most evenings. Two mornings we awoke to find our site surrounded by whitetails. It was a really beautiful site to see these whitetails frolicking in the morning Sun. - rvbozo

We were at Lake Whitney State Park near Whitney, Texas in site 26 The Horseshoe Loop (sites 1-51) have full hookups for $24/night. Beautiful wooded sites. Most sites in Horseshoe loop are pull throughs. Many sites can accommodate large RV's but be mindful of the trees. They have 3 other loops with water and electric that are closer to the lake. The lake is full and looks great. There is a Brookshires grocery in Whitney and a David's grocery just outside the park on Hwy 22. We've camped at this state park many times and will definitely return. - drfife

This park is old and not a typical COE that I have visited over the years. Lots of shade by the Cedar scrub trees. Lots of bugs especially spiders. Webs are created by the minute. Great Lake views, some covered concrete picnic tables. Not maintained at all. Bathrooms are bug infested, hot, and they are pit toilets. Great place if you are going to boat and so use the day resources around the corner. Its an OK place for a couple days. Oh, and Electrical was pretty low voltage wise. We had campers next door and when their air conditioner came on and my air was on the voltage went to less than 108 volts. I can only image if there were any more campers on the same circuit. Will go back but will be well prepared with bug spray, brooms to knock down webs, plenty of candles, foggers, and a high pressure washer to wash the picnic tables, shelter, and concrete slab off before we use it. - Gearitis

We didn't actually stay here. We wanted to but when we arrived we approached the office and were advised that they did not allow the general public to camp here. Their RV facilities are purely for events that are being held in the complex. Thought we had better make this observation so that no one else turns up expecting to just camp at any time. - KiwiRVer

We like to stay at fairgrounds because there is lots of room to move around in a big rig towing a big trailer plus fairgrounds don't have lots of amenities that we don't use and don't pay for. This was a great fairgrounds but "checking in" was ridiculous, clearly the left hand had no idea what the right hand was doing. There were many pull thrus on level hard asphalt and/or dirt. Many Back in against fences. Most sites were water and varied electric (30 or 50 amp). Also there are vast areas to walk a dog. We would stay here again. There is a lot to do in the Waco area and this is a good location to do them from. - tpw0607

Good park, out of the way and right on the Lake Waco. No sewer hookups and a so so dump station, needs help! Lots of wild life, as we witnessed Foxes, Skunks, Lots of Deer. Weekends are packed. Gate Hosts watch the park like a hawk. I have stayed here several times before and will go back. Good place to relax and have fun. - Gearitis

A Lake park with acceptable sites on a point out in the lake. Nothing special as far as we are concerned. A solid 6 on our scale.
Others may like the low cost or the proximity to the lake, but other than that it's just OK.
Bath Room (there was only one) was hot, old, and unpleasant. - Creativepart

The park is clean and well kept, although the restrooms left something to be desired. The park is far enough from the highway so there are no traffic noises, but there are cars driving through the park from the time it gets dark until about midnight. I am not sure if the gate is left open or why there is so much traffic, as the park is at the end of a long road. Also the park has no pet rules. While we were there one camper had 3 dogs and another had 4, and they barked from 6 AM until late evening. My overall rating would have been a 10 if not for the traffic and the dogs barking. We would and have recommended this park to friends. - oldtimers
