6 Parks near Wichita Falls, Texas
Mar 2016 - $20.00
This is a clean, but somewhat dated park. We stayed in site #20 in one of the "pinwheels" next to the lake. Each pinwheel includes one very long pull through. Our site was very grassy, spacious, and had a patio with metal roof, picnic table, and fire ring.
This park had several unique features. First the good: (1) There is a self-serve firewood kiosk (that takes credit cards only!) right by the main gate. This is so helpful, especially if you arrive after hours. (2) Prairie Dog Town (as listed on the park map) is absolutely full of playful prairie dogs that are fun to see. (3) There is a neat 18 hole disc (Frisbee) golf course that we enjoyed. On the other hand, there is a noisy, horsehead oil pump that runs 24/7 right across from this loop. We could easily hear it inside and out; it bothered different ones of us to different extents.
We had excellent LTE cell signal (AT&T) and got about 6 channels via OTA antenna. If you need supplies, town is probably 15-20 mins away.
Other campers said the fishing is often quite good. Looks like a great place to bring along the boat. The staff was very friendly. We would return, but probably as a stopover rather than a destination. - texasAUtiger

We camped at Lake Arrowhead State Park site 21 in February 2016. The park is 10 miles south of Wichita Falls, Texas. The lake is full and looks great. Nice hiking trails. The RV sites are in an unusual pinwheel layout with six sites per loop which provides large sites that are easy to maneuver. There are many prairie dogs is the day use area. Our site #21 has a view of the lake. Mesquite is the predominate tree and most sites do not have shade. The RV sites have 50/30/20 electric and water with a central dump station. Rate was $20/night. - drfife

One of the better Texas State Parks we've stayed at. Staff was great. Very level, well spaced sites, good 50 amp power and water. No sewer, but a dump station. Lots of cute prairie dogs. Wichita Falls is a short distance away. - 3-p

A good overnight CG. A nice park next door. Traffic noise, but no worse than most. Roomy with adequate hookups. Will definitely use again if in the area. - wdwtx

This park is right off 1-44 (exit 1C) and right next to Lucy Park and the Wichita Falls - Water Fall. The layout of parking spots was odd but they were wide and we had plenty of room for our 40ft coach and full size truck tow.
We had a sewer connection, and there was also a dump station on way out of park.
The Lucy Park was just over a cute wood swinging bridge and you could walk about half a mile to see the water fall.
Watch out for the vegetation, some of it is very angry. - Living Blindly

This is a city park with a self pay station. Site was pull through and long enough to hold our 41' MH and toad. Easy access headed south on Hwy 287. There are a few 50amp sites. Water is fine and dump station only on the way out. Nice grassy spots with some space between. This was a perfect overnight stop for us. It was quiet and only 3 other campers in the park. I would stop here every time instead of using a generator in a Walmart parking lot. - BBBT

We spent a quick over night, and would definitely stop here again. We had a pull-through site which had good lighting for an after-dark set-up. Super-fast wifi, maybe because we were close to office. - Bernalillo_Girl

We overnighted here on our way to Palo Duro Canyon. This is a nice clean park, very convenient to the central Wichita Falls area. There are pull throughs available but we had a back-in. Sites are level asphalt and all utilities work well. We will stay here again. - bb6306

We have stayed here several times before, so it was interesting to see the changes. The park looks first class. Like most in this area, there are no trees just full sun, but the pads and the power pedestals look new (even though I know they aren't). There are several Jellystone themed areas and, when weather permits, a nice pool. There are just two downsides here. It is located on a frontage road, so to reach it when you are headed north on 287 you have to go past, go up to the next exit, and then come back down. If you are leaving here southbound, you have to make a similar detour. Since that next exit is only 1 mile north, it is not that big a deal, just something to be aware of. The other big disadvantage is they have Tengo Internet, which is synonymous with PPP (painfully poor performance). The internet is free, but it is worth what it costs. I just my Verizon data card most of the time because Tengo just isn't worth the trouble. But the park is nice and a good place to be either as a destination or as a place to plan visits to Wichita Falls. - MFTDoc

Not at 10 because: wifi not wide enough band even with park 30% occupied; lack significant tree shade; water pressure extra high (no flow restrictors at sites. Overall, a decent park in which we'll stay again AND recommend to others who are not turned off by the above mentioned items. - User1161

Very nice park, lots of services. Spacious and open site with a concrete pad and picnic table. Really into kid entertainment. Signage is not great. The personnel are not friendly, actually arrogant when paying and checking in. A call for directions given by a person who was directionally challenged. Paid for four nights and due to a medical emergency I had to leave. I was credited for 3 days usable within the next 30 days. - Phrog34

A little ways off the interstate in a rural setting. Quiet park, large sites, some shade. WIFI was adequate but not fast or always available. Clean restrooms.
We camped here overnight in a motorhome. - 76Gator

Don't know why we didn't check the reviews before we booked this campground or we wouldn't have stayed here. The other reviewers described it perfectly. There are tons of burs which got into our dogs paws to the point we had to carry one of them. Full timers don't maintain their sites and its just generally a run down place that we won't stay at again. My husband says its like an RV graveyard, when you want to retire your old RV, bring it here and drop it off. The reception person was very nice and friendly. When we realized we hadn't packed cooking oil and the KOA store didn't have any, he gave us a cup of his own oil. Needs tons of work and KOA needs to monitor it closely. - davis0056

The only reason we have given this campsite a couple of points is that the staff were lovely and the restrooms/showers were clean and the cable was ok. The rest of the park was awful. It is basically a field with scrub grass that had not been mown, the sites and roads, and I use that term lightly, are rutted and scrub grass and dirt. The reality is nothing like the photos on the KOA website. There are many full time old campers which were scruffy with lots of junk at the sites. It is totally overpriced and we have contacted KOA HQ and asked for a refund but so far we have not had a response. We tried to answer the KOA survey sent after a stay but I guess as it was not a good review there was an error and it would not send. - Harris England

My rating of a "5" may be a little harsh. This is a city park and I commend Henrietta, TX on their building a well layed-out, all pull-through campground with full hook-ups. Having a sewer connection in a city park is a rarity and I really appreciate it. There are twelve sites and we heard that at least a couple of them have 50 amps but of the six I looked at before pulling into one, all were 30 amp.
I think a pro/con list would be more helpful and quicker to read than a narrative.
Easy access, quiet (away from major highways, railroads), full hook-up, good gravel roads and parking pads, "okay" spacing between sites, grass strip between sites, excellent Verizon signal, clear shot at sky for satellite
Tall rigs need to exit Hwy 287 at Hwy 82 intersection and go through town to access the 510 loop to the park. The closest exit on 287 will take you under a low (14') railroad trestle. If you are in the 13'6" range I would not trust the clearance. Power pedestals are not RV-grade, look like the cheapest breaker box they could find and stick on a piece of pvc pipe. Power is not good; we rarely got through an hour without voltage dipping below minimum and causing our power management system to block the potentially harmful effects. This appears to be an ongoing problem as all six of the pedestals I looked in had melted plugs or charred metal around newly replaced plugs.
I really like this park for a night's layover but I would have to think twice about staying again though because of the power. - jperry29

A city park with 12 pull thru sites. Some shade, but full hookups. OK for an overnight or couple of nights stay. There were 4 others there that appeared to be living there while they are working in the area.
Quiet and clean.
Be sure and check the electrical box. Some are 50 amp only and others are 30 amp only. Ball fields nearby, so plenty of room to walk your pets. - lolasmom
