This park is lovely, especially in the fall when the leaves are changing. Texas state parks could take a lesson from Louisiana state parks. They have put serious thought into the layout at this park. All sites are 45 feet long, paved, level, and have a small gravel area to park your tow vehicle or toad in. Also the pad area is free of trees so slide outs, single or multiple, are not an issue. Also you can book by site number, which is very nice for future visits. We used the FREE laundry facility which was very nice and clean. The park has a few trails, and we enjoyed them, and our boys enjoyed riding their bikes and skate boards on the nice, gravel free roads in the park. We did not use the pool since it was closed for winter, but it was very large and looked well maintained. The fishing piers were nice, but a few were not usable since the lake is still a little low. Be sure to bring everything you need; the nearest Walmart is 20+ miles away, and the Zwolle grocery store is a little on the expensive side. Also, bring bottled water to cook and drink with. We found the fresh water supply to have a flavor we didn't particularly care for. The only possible way to improve the park is to add sewer to the sites. If they do that it will be a 10. We will be returning to this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great park. We came to swim and spend family time. The sites are spacious, shady and level. Has friendly staff, clean restrooms with A/C. Ice is a a buck per bag at the office, and they have a clean laundry. Overall I highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is nice to stay in if you are planning on fishing the whole time; however, if you want to bike ride and hike on trails with your children, this may not be the park for you. The only playground is not near the camping spaces but near the boat launch which is off the main entry road. There is a swimming pool but it is not just for campers. The "locals" come and swim here. They were pretty rowdy and not under control even though there are life guards on duty (pool hours are 10-6). The life guards and park staff acknowledge that there is a problem but will not do anything to resolve it. The lake is super low so we were unable to fish from the few available fishing piers. There is no beach area and very few hiking and biking trails. The bath houses were very nice and very clean. Again, if you want to do nothing but fish in your boat-this is the place for you; if you are more of a biking/hiking person-then go to South Toledo Bend State Park for the trails. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly and helpful people, the lake was extremely low. It looks like some of the marinas are hurting do to this. A burn ban was in effect at this time. The park was very clean, the trash disposal was a good bit away but not a pain to get to. The Wi-Fi worked ok, worked better at night. I would recommend this park to anyone. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The friendliest country people you ever met run this place. They treated us like family! This is my favorite type of camping: secluded, wilderness camping; but this place a great pool, clean, modern facilities like a laundry room showers, bathrooms conveniently located we loved this place. I can't wait to get back here again!! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful, private, spacious, paved shady sites. Lake is great for boaters. Large park, need transportation to really get around in it. Very remote, faint and sketchy cell phone service. Laundry at main office near pool, not near campsites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great state park with real shady and private sites. Sites generally have the back section real shaded, with maintained limestone trails leading to the bathhouses and most sites were level. Friendly staff and hosts did a good job of keeping thing clean. There is a nice pool with pool furniture and lifeguards. The only disapointing things were the time the pool closes 6:00 pm and the kids would have also liked a playground in at least one of the campground loops. There is also a limited water view of Toledo Bend Lake. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice place with lots of trees, clean bathrooms and nice pool. Long entrance to the park off the main road is very twisty. Nice place overall, older but very nice state park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
PROs: Waterfront sites only a few feet from the bulk headed lake. Beautiful views. Slab level and wide. Looks like the park had some strong investment in infrastructure at one time, with concrete parking, boat docks, a nice long fishing pier, boat ramp, club house etc. A couple of covered sites but they were rented to long term tenants. CONs: A whole list. At the core is that there is little maintenance. Whole place has a run down feel to it. Like it was once really nice but now is badly run down. - Grass was mowed but not edged so buildings had 4 ft high weeds growing around them. Playground equipment had tall weeds around it. - Broken beer bottle in breeze way between restrooms that remained during our 3 day visit. Which means the restrooms were not cleaned. - Sewer connection at our site had a broken cap so we could not screw in hose. Looked broken for a long time. So we smelled the sewer when wind was right. - We arrived at 5pm, office closed at 4pm. There was no arrival packet so we had to call the after hours number and wait for someone to show up to open office and tell us site number. There was no map, no instructions about trash or amenities, nothing but a site number. End of fishing pier had some sort of adjustable platform that was broken off and floating in water for a long time. There are no pet cleanup stations. Had to find dumpster on our own, no trash pickup. No laundry that we could find. Had we found a review of the place earlier we would have found a different RV park on the lake.
