Been staying here the past 5 years and have seen this park deteriorate terribly. For some reason the Corps does not put any money into the operations or maintenance. Grass is only mowed 3-4 times a year, 3 large 20' diameter potholes have been getting worse over the last 3 years. Last time I had to drive out against the one way traffic to avoid them...sad. The entire road system needs replacing, along with re-grading to eliminate water around water and electric pedestals. A new bathroom/ storm shelter has recently been installed, perhaps solving the bath issue, but there's never any money to maintain anything. Tree limbs block road access unless you want to be scratched. The manager is now imposing the 14 day rule, so campers have to leave after 2 weeks, so the park sits virtually empty 'till the next public holiday. Why would anyone want to chase campers out so there's no revenue? Answer: Fed. Gov't campgrounds. It's now so bad I had to leave and find another place. Don't want to go back, even though this place used to have so much to offer. Camp here at your own risk! We camped at East Fork COE in a Motorhome.

The park has gone down hill over the past years. Roads are bad enough to damage Rig and vehicles. Grass is not being mowed. Boat launch is (and has been) closed, nothing wrong with launch, just to lazy to collect fees. Just leveled their big bathroom and shower. Even the grills are trash. It used to be a nice park. Sites are now unlevel and rain accumulates, badly Will not stay again. $30 is high for no sewer hook ups and no other amenities. We camped at East Fork COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I rate this campground a 3 because of the bathhouse. It is terrible. It was filthy when we tried to use it, along with the other open air bathrooms. All should be replaced. The sites are huge and great views of the lake. Too bad the bathrooms are so poor. We camped at East Fork COE in a Travel Trailer.
