This is a nice park. The sites are large and well separated. The restrooms were spotless. Unfortunately there isn't anywhere to put your stuff in the shower stalls where it won't get wet except for a small hanger. The lake level is so low due to the drought that the swimming area is unusable. The boat ramp is also closed.

This is a small park and the trains run very close to the camping area. There are at least two trains that come through during the night. There is a pit toilet in the campground. The bath house has flush toilets, but it's located quite a long way down the road. The full hookup sites are large and level. It's very pleasant to sit in your site and watch the barges going down the river.

Our price was $22 per night for a non-electric site plus the $5 per day admission fee. This park is definitely not big rig friendly. The site are rather small and very tight to get into with rocks and trees on both sides. The hiking/bike trails are very nice. There aren't enough electric sites to accommodate a crowd on weekends.

Our rate was $23 per night plus the $5 per day entrance fee for an electric only site. Water is available at the dump station. The bike trails are currently closed for reconstruction. There is a lot to do in this park. Walking across the Mississippi and climbing the fire lookout tower were highlights. We would stay here again.

This is a great local park. Plenty of activities within the park and close to town. The sites are fairly level and all gravel. The restrooms were outstanding, very clean. No Wi-Fi but we got a good T-Mobile connection. We would stay here again.

The price is the 62 and over rate. This is a very nice park with several pull-through sites. The sites are large and well spaced. It was very quiet because it's located in the bottom of a narrow canyon. Lots of trees and grassy areas though. The swimming pool was closed on the day we were there (Tuesday), but it looked very nice. I don't know if Oklahoma has park hosts in their parks, but this one could use the services of someone dedicated to going around and picking up litter.

The rate is for a water/electric site. I was ready to rate this park much higher but the electricity at our site went off at 8:30 pm and we had to move. A swarm of the largest most vicious mosquitoes descended on us just as we were starting to move. On the more positive side, the lake was cool and clear. The campsites and restrooms were reasonably clean after a busy weekend.

The sites are gravel and fairly level, but very close together. Wi-Fi at the front of the park works well. The Bar-B-Que at the on-site restaurant was ok, but not up to Texas standards. We would probably look for somewhere else to stay if in the area again.

The only drawback to this place is that it's basically a large gravel parking lot. The sites are large and pull-through with full hook-ups. Wi-Fi was very good. The restrooms and showers were spotless. The washer and dryer arrangement was different though. We've never seen a laundry actually in the restroom before. It's a great location for all the area attractions. This is the place we would stay if we were in the area again, except during the motorcycle rally.

Rate reflects Senior discount. The sites are paved, because they are just wide spots in the road. Not all sites have electricity. There are water spigots located on each loop and at the dump station. The scenery in the park is fantastic and they have an open hiking policy so you can go wherever you want. Just remember to take plenty of water. The restrooms were ok, but it was so hot in the shower building that we couldn't stay in there long enough to take a shower. We would stay here again.

An excellent park. The sites are very large and well separated. Paved pads. The new restroom/showers are the nicest we've ever seen. The price does not include the $6.00 daily fee. There are fresh water spigots located on each loop and at the dump station. We would stay here again.

The check-in machine wasn't taking credit cards (it seems they never are). Otherwise this is a very nice campground. We were a little rushed when we checked in and chose a site that wasn't very level. We should have taken a little more time to select a better site. The park host told us she was a little surprised we took that spot because of the tree at the back corner. The sites are pretty close together. The host was very nice and offered us a lot of information about what to do in the area. She also told us that parking was free in the lot near the visitor center on weekends. We really enjoyed our time here.

Rate reflects $5 entrance fee to the park. Not all sites have water hook ups but there is a place to fill tanks on the road from the entrance. We were there on a Tuesday and the park was very quiet. The sites are fairly close together so I can see how it could be crowded and noisy on the weekends. There are several restrooms with showers and several more that just have vault toilets. The restroom near our site #159 was very clean, but could use some updating. We would stay here again.

This is a very nice, clean park. The man in the entrance office was very helpful and friendly. The sites are spaced well and most seem fairly level. Some are paved and some are gravel. WiFi is free and work well. The campground is on Lake Lewisville but doesn't have direct access to the lake. You have to drive around through the day use area. We will camp here again.

Very nice state park. Sites are large and well separated. Restrooms are clean and fairly modern.

Rate reflects senior rate. This is a very nice COE park. Park is a little hard to find since it's so far from a town. Restrooms were clean and each was a separate complete unit. Sites are close together without much to separate them. Neighbors had a barky little dog that they penned up and then left. No wi-fi, and T-Mobile wasn't dependable.

This is a fine park. The only issue might be that some of the sites are not very level. We camped in the north loop and didn't have a problem. The WiFi worked very well whenever we needed it, both with a laptop and our smartphones. The Arboretum is a definite plus for the park. The restrooms were always very clean.

This is a great campground. Sites are large, clean, and well spaced. The restrooms and showers were spotless. Price reflects the senior discount. We will definitely camp here again, especially during the week when it's not crowded.

We stayed here after the "season" was over so there was never anyone in the camp office. The park host was not around much, but that was OK because there were only 4 campers in the Birch area. It was very quiet. The sites are very large and well spaced. Gas and groceries in the nearby towns of Laketown and Garden City were very expensive.

The place was completely full the Saturday night we were there. This was a bit of a surprise for so late in the season. The sites are arranged well but seem pretty close together. The laundry and showers (pay) are in a separate building near the store. The place is very expensive even for a full hook up campground.

Price reflects senior discount. We had a double back in site on the G loop. One site was level and the other was not. The sites are pretty close together but it was quiet in the evening. They were preparing to shut down for the winter, so there were fewer campers each night.

We camped here over Labor Day weekend. It's the second busiest weekend of the year for them. We had to take one of the free sites the first night then moved to one of the improved sites the next morning. Although the area is scenic, it's also kind of desolate. This is probably a great place for water sports, but we didn't find it very attractive.

Nice place for an overnight stay to visit the tower. Sites are large and fairly level. Great shade and views of the Tower from the campground. A good place for dry camping.

This is a fine park. We stayed in the Seminole area. The sites are large and well separated. We stayed in one of the W&E sites. The grounds are in excellent shape. The only negative I have about the place is the restrooms. They are a little bit tacky and out of date. You also have to pay to use the shower. I wouldn't have expected that in a park of this quality. We would stay here again.

Rate does not include $7 per person entry fee which is waived for annual pass holders. The dinosaur tracks were not visible due to recent rains which made the river too high and dirty, but it was still fun to be in the water. Some of the sites are very close together and would probably be best for a family or group that needs more than one site. Some sites are very tight to get into so a big rig might not be able to fit. Local attractions Dinosaur World and Fossil Rim Wildlife Safari make this a great place to stay. We will definitely be back.

This was a very nice park. The park hosts were super friendly and helpful. The restrooms and showers were in excellent condition. The sites are mostly gravel and fairly level. They are spaced fairly far apart.

This is a very nice KOA. It is clean and well maintained but like most KOAs it's way over-priced. The water & electric sites are just wide enough to get a trailer into. Getting into the site was difficult due to the sharp turn required. We had to back out and go around through the full hookup sites to get a straight shot at it. Wi-Fi is available.

The daily rate reflects Texas Passport. Very nice park with large sites. The trails are wide and very well maintained. Alligators sun along the trails so you have to be careful. The restrooms were a mess after a busy weekend and weren't cleaned until Tuesday. This was disappointing. We have stayed here before and will be back.

Nice RV park, but the sites are very close together. There is a single restroom with a shower. The owner lives on-site and she is very nice. Wi-Fi service is good, but we were warned that it doesn't always reach to the furthest spots. We are here for the spring bird migration and we would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice, quiet park during the week. It gets crowded and noisy on the weekends. We camped here the week after Easter and there was a lot of litter in some of the camping areas. The staff was doing their best to get the place cleaned up. The restrooms and showers were pretty messy on Sunday, but were clean by Monday afternoon. Wi-Fi service was iffy. We were in site #36 which was too far from the antenna for reliable service.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. We have stayed here over 20 times over the years. Sites are large and spaced far apart. There are no hook-ups, which is normal in a national park. They were flooding the areas for irrigation and several water birds found the place. Very unusual for the middle of the desert. We have solar panels on our trailer and they allowed us to run some of our electrical equipment without being in the full hook-up area. Rate reflects the Senior Discount.

This might not be the worst campground in Texas, but it's close. We stayed here for one night on our way to Big Bend. Check in was on the honor system and we never saw any staff. The campground is in serious need of updating. Most of the other campers there were long time residents. The restrooms were locked the whole time we were there.
