20 Parks near Winnsboro, Texas
May 2010 - $10.00
We`ve stayed here many times. Has good 50amp power, level concrete pads, very good water, and sewer. You can wash your coach if you want. WiFi is now available. Has many trees, but cut high enough, so they don`t rake your coach. There are many things to do in this area, even though Winnsboro has a population of a little over 3000. - William Willard

Great little park. Rate is for seniors. Regular rate is $15. Some train noise. We'll stay here again. - Joezilla
Feb 2006 - $15.00
Stayed for a couple days which just happened to be the same time as the Gold Wing Rally at the park. It is a small very clean city park with level concrete pads, a public pool, dump station and a fenced in playground. The only down side is the railroad tracks adjacent to the park unless you like the railroad thing. The Park Manager is very helpful in suggesting local points of interest and activities. She said that they are planning additional sites with pull throughs and also WiFi and nature trails during the year. Enjoyed our stay very much and will return for another visit. - TexasRVer

Walleye Park on Lake Cypress Springs is operated by Franklin County Water District. There are 72 RV sites (54 50A/water and 18 50A/water/sewer). All sites have lake access. There is a boat dock for every two sites. Large trees and shade. The new sites with sewer (55-72) have large concrete pads and are $50/night with 3 night minimum for reservations. Non-sewer sites (1-54) are $30/night with 3 night minimum for reservations. Good WiFi and cell service. Beautiful park. I am surprised it has not been reviewed previously on RVPR. We were in full hook-up site #60. Best full hookup sites are #'s 65 and 69. - drfife

A very nice State Park. Asphalt road ways, concrete pads on all sites (although some of them appeared to be fairly short and/or not that level). Most, if not all sites, had a separate grass pad for tents. Sites also had wooden picnic tables on concrete pads, and metal grated fire pits. Campground has been carved out of the forest so heavily treed. Excellent spacing between sites, our site was very secluded. 30 Amp power worked for us, would have been nice to have 50 Amp (perhaps we selected the wrong loop?). Good water pressure on site as well. One restroom with showers between two loops. One garbage bin per two loops. Only one dumping station (with access for two units/time) for the entire campground. Free firewood available at the front gate (but, the campground did accept donations). Very friendly park staff. Loops were frequently patrolled by staff personnel. Overall, an excellent campground. Would definitely return. - WinnMac

The rate does not reflect a required daily entrance fee unless you have a Texas State Park pass. Only a very few of the sites have any sort of water view at all. The campsites in this park are heavily tree covered, good for a hot day. We were lucky enough to be able to find a site with a hole to get satellite. We had very good Verizon data and voice. Most of the sites are not very long or would be very hard to level. The campground is fairly convenient to Mt. Pleasant. We were mainly there to visit friends, so did not explore the park itself very much. - TheJim

As noted with Texas State Parks, you must either have a Park Pass or pay an additional $4 per person daily use fee. The sites varied in length and level grade. We chose a site with some lake view, and used leveling blocks. My RV power monitor noted that only L2 was powered on their 50A receptacle, so we asked the park, to learn that they have never connected 50A service to the sites. So I switched to the 30A plug and had good power even with an internal space heater. It was a fairly quiet campground, even with some large groups of young boys camping on our loop. We did not explore the park very much, taking day trips to Kilgore and to Tyler. We stayed 5 nights and would stay again. - cherib

Very quiet, good cable reception. Especially enjoyed the separate and tiled bathroom/shower, very nice. Will definitely stay there again. - liztx

Great overnight stop. Can be somewhat hard to find and is down a narrow road, close to I-30. Not difficult once the friendly manager told us what to do. Located next to a cemetery and very quiet. Our space was a level concrete slab, not sure how many they have. Others reported 3. We were able to stay hooked up and level. We would stay here again. - Pinnacle Pete

This park is fine for a one or two night stay. Easy to navigate in the campground. We had a nice long pull through site with concrete pad - one of three. The rest were gravel. Good Wi-Fi and a friendly manager. Trees are very young so there's no shade yet. The park is located 1/2 mile from the highway down a very narrow tree lined road. There are no signs until you get to the park, so call ahead for directions to make sure you're on the right road. - dem

We stopped here for the fourth year on our way south. Not a bad basic park. No frills. We would stay again. - Airstream Man
Apr 2011 - $20.00
This is a nice municipal park with full hookups. There were very few RV's in the park and water needed to be run to get the rust out of the lines. A sign of very limited use. - cat's meow

We stayed here while searching for a home. They have monthly rates as well as weekly rates. It is a very quiet park and shady areas to walk in. The restrooms do not have showers in them. - chicosmom
Apr 2006 - $8.00
Coast-To-Coast rate. This is primarily, 95%, a resort selling lots for permanent homes. There is a boat launch for bass fishing. The rest rooms could have used some more cleaning and some soap. The swimming pool doesn't open until Memorial Day. Paved roads but grass lots with no concrete patios. Nice fire places on each campsite. Open year round. The playground was quite a distance from the RV section. A security gate guarded the resort. - adamsr2
Oct 2012 - $25.00
Very friendly. On the water. The shower is a little rustic but clean. New dock and a great for large dogs to play. Lots of bass boat launching. Near state road, some road noise. Super restaurant on site with a huge breakfast for $5. - flbirds

It's just an OK park. I say this because there was nothing there to make me want to come back. Overall cleanliness of the park was marginal. Camped in a fifth wheel and was out the next day - Caseysplace

Very quite and clean park. Located on Lake Fork which is a big bass fishing with a lot of boat traffic. Restaurant in park has very good steaks. - TexasRVer

This is a "east" Texas RV Patk and apparently won some awards for best in the area.
It is right on the water and across the street from a restraint/bar/gas station. Park itself seemed looked after. Service not great. 20 min on hold, then forgot about us(we could hear them talking). Phone off hook for 2 hrs. Greeted with "go find yer spot" after pulling in. Not rude, but no service.
Good number of full time rvs at the waterfront. It's a full party spot on a summer Friday. Lots of smoking.
10 year limit on rvs... Maybe....
If you want quiet and no-party, this isn't it. It is beer, bait, and ammo... Which is fine.
Lakefront yes. Boat access yes. Karoke yes. - cb1000rider
May 2014 - $12.00
Rate was $12.50 for Passport America. Just an overnight stay, and had a long fairly level pull-through, so did not have to unhook toad. This looks like a fairly new park, with still some work to be done. That being said, not a bad place. Have some fulltimers, but all the RVs are in good shape, and sites are clean. A little off the beaten path, but would stay here again. They also have a small restaurant/bar across road at marina. - JJ & CC

We stayed for 37 days in this park, and for the most part, it is a very nice place to spend some time. With that said, April and May are months that include the Spring transitional weather patterns, which create some problems. Site #9 turns into a mud hole after rains, and rain it does. The lake rose four of five inches during our stay. However, most sites have grass (ours did not) on either side of the pad. Also, if you plan on staying here for any length of time, ask for a site that is not located under the tall pines. Again, this is particularly true in the spring when the sap starts to run and the winds howl during thunder bumpers. I'm going to have to do some major clean up on our roof and sides of our coach from dripping pine sap, plus we had a two foot limb fall on the roof. Just hoping I don't ruin the clear coat. The lake is heavily fished, but fishing is fair to good. We were here for the bass fishing, using an inflatable boat. We had one week of good weather with light winds that allowed us to get on the water, and during that time we caught a good many bass, keeping only those that were 14 to 15 inches long and weighing in around 1.5 to 2 pounds. We caught lots of fish that were under 14 inches and several in the 3 to 5 pound range. The area offers everything you need, sans RV repair for motorhomes (there is for trailers and 5'vers) WalMart is 13 miles away, but a very easy drive. Not much in eateries, but if TexMex is your thing there are plenty of those. I don't recommend any in Pittsburg, but Mt.Pleasant has some good ones. If you go to Gilmer, do NOT eat at the Chinese Buffet. All in all, this is a nice campground, the staff is friendly, and they keep the sites clean and in good to fair shape. Don't expect much from their free WiFi, as it doesn't work most of the time, and when it does it is slower than a sleeping snail. - Darfantin
Dec 2009 - $15.00
This is an old run down RV park that is well past its prime. Owner was nice enough but place is not ready for customers. No bathrooms or showers, and old paved roads and parking spots. This park is adjacent to an abandoned truck stop of days gone by. This area my have thrived at one time but no longer. We almost left after paying but decided to stay and get some rest. We were the only ones there except for the owner. It had a rather rundown building that had "Coin Laundry" sign on it, but I wouldn't have tried to go in it. I assumed another relic from days gone by. In the end we got a nights sleep but I couldn't wait to get going the next morning. I would not recommend this place to anyone the way it is right now. Not blaming the owners, I assume they are trying to revive the place but it gives a very poor impression and we had little sense of safety or security. We found this place through Passport America. - ThinkingRedInk

Arrival: You have to travel 18 miles south to get there but it just may be worth it
Roads: Excellent all the way coming and going. Except... we called the site owner in advance and she told us not to follow the GPS. So true. Drive in to Pittsburg and then approach from the south. I drove the GPS road in my TOAD and thought I was going to die!
Sites: Excellent. Plenty of space and well maintained. Full hookups. DISH by every site... but you have to pay huge to get it running.
Cost: $32.50. Website says there are discounts -- none. Park owner's excuse is that she can't update the site.
Local Area: Rural. You have to drive back to Mt Pleasant to get anything you really need.
Internet: Advertized free internet -- false. Limited cell phone reception. Clear views of all skies and/or plug into DISH.
Other: One dumpster at the end of the park. Inconvenient. Many excuses for not delivering on advertised amenities. We will not stay there again. - JC Penny

Nice quiet park about 2 miles from Lake Bob Sandlin. I was on the only cement pad in the park on Site 17. Electricity, water and sewer connections are at the back of the site. Be careful pulling into sites because of this. Roads are gravel in the park and a little narrow. Sites are kind of close together but not on top of each other. Verizon service is 3 bars sometimes, but mostly 2 bars or less. Wi-Fi was not working during my stay, they said it was "hung up". Owners are very friendly. They are improving amenities in the park continuously. There are picnic tables in a pavilion in the park and they have just completed a nice large pet park. Area is still a little muddy when it rains, but they are working on landscaping in the park. Entrance drive to the park is a little obscured by some trees and it narrow. I would stay here again. - Paul_L63

We were transferred to Pittsburg with my husband's job. The owner was very friendly. The spaces were tight, but very long pull thrus, allowing ample parking for both our vehicles. There were small shade trees. The park was located in a very beautiful, hilly area, making the drive a very pleasant one. The Laundry room was very nice and the shower house was clean and nice as well. The park was fairly new and immaculate. We were there only 5 months and would definitely stay there again. - Sharon Henderson
