We lived four miles from this park before going full-time. Always stop here for our doctor visits, and to see kids/ grandkids.

Very spacious, on flat area which doesn't drain well after heavy rains. Be careful - many sites are depressed and flood. Won't damage your rig, but you will get your feet wet.

After spring 2015 floods, day use area is closed.

As one of the four highest priced COE parks in Texas, falls short on my value scale. Previous project to rebuild restrooms and add sewer hookups - which was stopped several years ago - might be restarted in 2016 according to park hosts, local COE office. I'll wait and see.

As mentioned above - park roads are horrible and getting worse. COE had millions of dollars of flood damage in Texas in 2015. I don't see how they will get to projects like fixing huge pot-holes soon.

Road from TX-78 to park is also getting worse. Collin County and City of Wylie each have short stretches of the road and neither is planning to fix their part. Heavy truck traffic for nearby water plant and KSC RR facility doing more damage daily. We camped at East Fork COE in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Northeast of Dallas with all it's attractions.

The sites at this campground are wonderfully spacious and adequately level. Check in was easy and the employees very nice. The bathrooms must be the original ones making them dark, dank, smelly, and virtually unusable. Since this is a w/e only park, being able to use the restroom would be a plus. One of the major problems with this park is the road. There has been no repairs completed in a long time. It is very much like trying to drive through a mine field but you cannot be successful in missing the incredibly large holes. These do no even qualify as potholes they are so large. The other problem is people living here. While there is a limit to the number of nights one can stay, all you have to do is extend. These sites are trashy, with debris spilling out all around the rig. There is a gate, but it is left open at night for people to simply drive in. Could be a beautiful park, and it is close to Dallas. You would think a government owned park would be better maintained. We camped at East Fork COE in a Motorhome.

Nice park with very large sites, especially if you are on the outer ring. Parking and navigating through the park are a breeze, but there are some horrendous potholes on the way in. No wifi, but cell service was excellent. Not a bad place to stay to visit Dallas from. The grass was all dead, but it was otherwise a pretty park with a nice lake and swimming area. Not many trees. My main problem with this park was it was invaded every morning until about noon by swarms of gnats. They were so thick, there was no way to keep them out if you opened your door. They weren't so bad one morning when it was cold, so it may just be they show up when its hot out. They really curtailed my enjoyment of this park. We camped at East Fork COE in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are very large and come with a covered picnic table. Sites are paved and level and come with water and electric, no sewer. There is a dump station at park entrance.

We were in site 26. This is a very quiet campground and very relaxing. Was very convenient sightseeing in the Dallas area and close to South Fork Ranch (Dallas tv show fame).shopping is close by as well as numerous eateries.

the campground hosts were very friendly and from what we heard, the campground will be getting new restrooms and shower houses as well as new paved roads soon.

We really enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. We camped at East Fork COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Near Dallas for sightseeing. Close by Walmart for shopping and fuel ( some of the cheapest fuel prices in area). Downtown Wiley is close and real cute for shopping.

We stayed here for 10 days while awaiting the finalization on the sale of our house nearby. The site itself was not too bad, no overgrowth, clean, fairly level. The was the only COE park in the area with 50 amp hookups. The road inside the park is in major disrepair with numerous potholes. There ARE bathroom and shower facilities, but they were not very clean and poorly maintained overall. Only two restroom facilities in the park (of the 7 total) had showers in them, which made most people a fair distance from the showers. Poor lighting in and outside all the bathrooms/showers. We would be hesitant to stay here again in the future. We camped at East Fork COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Just down the road from Walmart, close to town.

The park was quiet, we were on site #21, which was level and had a great view of the lack, which was 100% full. we didn't use the bathrooms/showers, so i can't comment on that. water and electric only, no sewer. there is a dump station right outside the gate when you leave. overall a nice park, the only issues i had were the HUGE potholes in the road, and the un-mowed grass. while the grass had been mowed directly around the sites, it was very tall everywhere else, due to recent heavy rains. this contributed to a large amount of mosquitoes. the sites are well spaced, and each one has a covered concrete picnic table. not a bad option if you need a place to camp in the northeast metroplex. We camped at East Fork COE in a Travel Trailer.

This used to be a nice campground, but it has gone steadily downhill in the past few years. Rest rooms/showers are open again, after at least 18 months closure, but they are really very bad. There's no way to really clean facilities like this. We stay here because there is nowhere else near our family in Garland/Plano area. We camped at East Fork COE in a Motorhome.

Bath houses have not been available for over a year! Port-a-potties only and no showers available. Gate keepers are nice but challenged to do the job efficiently. Gates left up while attendants are in rigs, providing no security in park. Trees need trimming, brushes against side of rig while driving into and out of park. We camped at East Fork COE in a Motorhome.

Good COE Park. Well maintained grounds. Restrooms were closed for renovation during our stay. Large sites. Only a few, small trees. We were in back-in site #13 and it had a tree on west side for afternoon shade. Good water pressure and quality. Good 50A service. Central dump station only. Staff informed me that future plans are to install sewer at all sites. Paid $30/ night, which is high for the area for a park with these services. The park is convenient for visiting north east Dallas. We might stay here again. We camped at East Fork COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a nice clean campground. Very quiet and peaceful. We had a nice level site with beautiful views of the lake. We arrived late and paid for two nights. Then we found out they had no bathrooms or showers and only port a potty's that needed cleaning. I did end up finding a bathroom that was unlocked but it was dirty with bugs and spiders everywhere. My girls were afraid to use it. They don't have sewer hookups, so this made things difficult for our family of five. We may return one day if they open up the bathrooms and clean them. We camped at East Fork COE in a Travel Trailer.

This used to be a beautiful park, but not now. The grass was deep, the restrooms are still closed, and have been for a year now. The park facilities have really deteriorated. We will be back because we have family in the area. One of very few choices in the Dallas area. We camped at East Fork COE in a Motorhome.

This is the only decent CG available on the east side of DFW. Lots of room, quiet and services available nearby. No sewer as with most Corps parks, but they just increased the daily rate from $18 to $30. For this you get no sewer, broken restrooms/showers and long grass with very poor maintenance. Apparently the gov't belt-tightening is reaching this park, but not all other Corps parks. We camped at East Fork COE in a Motorhome.

Needed mowing, etc very badly. No rest rooms in service. Site had great view of the lake. No true shady sites. Road paved and in good repair. Close to but away from a lot of services and shopping. Probably would stay there again short term. We camped at East Fork COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We first stayed in this park in 2008 and have watched it go downhill ever since. What a pity because finding a decent place to park a motorhome in the Dallas area is like finding the proverbial needle. As of 1/1/12, this place has no working restrooms or showers, has garbage and debris at every site, has enormous potholes everywhere, and attendants who don't attend to a darn thing. It also seems to be leaning toward permanent "guests". Will stay here again only since there are no other options. Sure wish somebody would open a new, nice RV park in the area. We camped at East Fork COE in a Motorhome.

This park was a great place to stay. Very open sites with lots of room to stretch your legs, walk the dog, or let the kids play. The ground is very dry right now and there are large cracks in the soil that you have to watch out for (mother nature is the only one to blame for this). The staff was very friendly and the location is great for using the lake. Playground was very new and nice and shady. Wylie has some great little restaurants and is about 5 minutes away. There are no actual camper sites on the water, only water views. We camped at East Fork COE in a Fifth Wheel.
