Friendly owner (woman) met us on golf cart and took us to a long shaded pull-through. Gravel roads with gravel/grass level sites. Pretty grounds, lots of trees and flowers. Conservation swing area is unique and awesome! Great burger at Herk's Store & Grill, must have jalapeño bun! Small town, great park for overnight stop, no road noise. Would return.
I must say I had my doubts about this park. Small town - looking at the satellite view, couldn't really make out the layout; but after arriving, the owners are great, and very welcoming! We had one of the front pull-throughs next to the swimming pool. This is a great site. I would have loved to stay longer, but we were using them as an overnight stop. No TV or internet, but if you're looking to get away from it all and enjoy a small town this is the place. Also check out the firehouse 54 pizza in the small town; nice local place with very good pizza.
This is a very typical state park; large shaded sites with water and electric. There is some confusion between the Reserve America site and their description - Premium campsites appear to only be the pull thru sites, but actually also includes several sites with views of the lake.
Overall this is a nice park that gives your great access to metro Jackson. The entrance is a narrow locked gate that you must get out and use a flashlight to open the lock after 8:00pm. The road to the park was a white gravel and at the time that we camped it was VERY dusty. Needed to wash the toad several times. While I was there I talked to one of the state officials that said they were trying to upgrade the park with paved roads and full hookups by next year. If this happens this will be a gem in the middle of the city.
9.7 park at least! This is an excellent park just a short drive off of I-20. As previously mentioned the lake side sites are somewhat narrow. The picnic bench provided sometimes sits precariously next to a large hill leading down to the lake. Overall however this is a great camp. All of the pluses of a state park (wooded campsites, great views and hiking trails) plus the advantage of full hookups. They had a sand beach for swimming plus numerous shelters that can be rented for large groups. In looking at their website, the seem to specialize in cross country bike races. The only reasons for not giving this park the ultimate #10 rating is the narrow sites and the restroom was lacking toilet paper! (This was corrected later by the staff without prompting) Overall this is an great park and would certainly stay again.
This is a great quiet park with nice shade trees. We stayed in a double site which was double in width and would 16 people. In looking a standard width site would be ample. We liked the quiet atmosphere. No lake views but a walking path would take you to the lake.
This is an OK park. We have stayed here several times moving children in and out of Stephen F Austin University. The sites are all gravel with no shade. This time the water pressure in the park was miserable; only 25psi. I was disappointed given the new rates. Restrooms are clean enough for a guy camping, but I'm sure my wife would have a different opinion.
Park is located behind a strip retail center. There are two race tracks near by so noise is a problem at night. The pull thru site that we were given had two separate full hook ups, which was a good thing as the hookup closest to the concrete pad had the water line broken from someone pulling off with the water hooked up. This is an OK park for an overnight, but not a destination.
