This is a great park for fall and winter camping. The small lake has struggled the past few years due to drought conditions in this area so there is not much to do as far as the lake is concerned. However, there is plenty to do if you like hiking or biking the trails, shopping in the nearby town of Coldspring (they have their monthly town square trade days the last Saturday of the month), visiting the historic jail house, or eating at the old style dinner in town. We always reserve one of the full hook-up sites that are paved, reasonably level with a good hook-up pedestal, and that is appropriately positioned. The satellite TV reception is OK, but not great; and the antenna TV reception is poor. This is because of the remote location and abundant tree coverage. The rest rooms are typical Forest service facilities. Not outstanding but adequate. Since we have full hook-ups, this is not an issue to us. The park is shady and very beautiful on a cool crisp fall morning. We have been coming to this park for years and will continue. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Just stayed here at spot 60. Highly recommend this place. Really enjoyed the it, no troubles at all, bath rooms are dated but kept pretty clean. I really didn't see any trash anywhere in the park. Great hiking trails and saw a bunch of kids on bikes so I think they have biking trail as as well but cant swear to it. RV sites are very spacious, ours wasn't real level but for the layout, I will take it any day, hiking trails are nice. AT&T service spotty but you can get a signal most places, Satellite signal a bit tough to get cause all of the trees but would much rather have the trees around us like we did. No dump station but park manager said just pull through one of the open drive through spots with full hook ups and dump there. Only negative thing I can say about this place is I think the park host needs to to tidy up their site, stuff laying around their RV really takes away from the place and be put away and in order like the rest of the park. With that being said, they were super friendly people. I don't think anyone will be disappointed staying here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Interior roads and sites paved and easy to navigate with the motorhome. Heavy tree cover made satellite service impossible to get. A quiet campground; park was not busy at all. We were on site 051. Sites tend to slope either toward road or rear so significant leveling may need to take place depending on site. We would consider returning to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice Forest Service park with fairly level paved sites. Very brushy, so that next neighbor is hardly visible and very distant. Nice walking path along the lake. Due to current conditions in Texas, the lake is dry and there is a burn ban, but these things cannot be helped. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park offers a number of hiking and bicycling trails, not to mention canoe, paddle boat or fishing on or around the lake. The designated swim area is in the day use area on the other side of lake from our site. Very wooded, makes for a sense of privacy between sites but also limits satellite reception. Sites were spacious with tables fire rings lantern poles and some with full RV hookups. The nearest restroom/shower facility to our site was out of order making the next closest a bit of a hike. Perhaps it was just the time of year, but the flies were terrible, with literally hundreds attacking anything edible placed on a table outside. We actually filled a fly trap jar (used for stables) over the weekend we were there. Next time we will bring the canopy with bug screens. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I really liked this campground. Lots of trails and trees. Has a nice swimming area also. The spaces were really large. Everyone was very nice. We couldn't get much on the TV and my cell would not work at the site (t-Mobile), but we wanted to relax anyway. There are nice family type restaurants close by, if you don't want to cook. Has a picnic table and grill at the site also. They have group camping if you need it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a concessionaire managed, US Forest Service facility. The positives for this campground it is big rig friendly with paved access roads, easy in and out, and all sites are concrete or paved. Full hook-ups and pull thru’s are not the norm, but are available thru out the campground. Space between sites is abundant. Each has a picnic table and fire ring/grill. Water pressure and voltage was good. There is a nice separate tent area only, also spacious, but without hook-ups. Bath houses are conveniently spaced thru out the campground. There are two small lakes and nice biking/hiking trails. One lake has a pavilion, seasonal concession, and designated swimming area. The negatives are that the access roads have some potholes and crumbling pavement. Most sites will require some higher degree of leveling - more for longer rigs. The bath houses aren’t heated, there is no laundry or playground, dump station, and the single dumpster is not within walking distance of the campsites. Satellite reception will only be possible on a few sites and good TV reception is also minimal. The Golden Age and Access card is recognized, but only for a discount instead of the normal half price fee. Without this discount the cost is comparable to a commercial CG with more amenities. My rating is a reflection of a few too many negatives and the high price for a site. But, if the intent of one’s visit is to take advantage of natural surroundings with camp site privacy, then this is a good place to do it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Awesome park! There are several miles of walking and mountain biking trails. Also a small 23 acre lake with catfish and bass with many fishing piers and benches for just enjoying the view. The sites are huge and most accommodating just about any size camper with multiple slides. The park is very clean and well maintained and the staff is very helpful and friendly. We will return many times a year. This park is a jewel. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice, quiet park. Most of the sites are spaced farther apart than the state parks in the region, giving a lot of seclusion to each site. A few are alongside each other, allowing two RV's to camp together. Outside our windows, all we could see were trees. We did have to do some leveling. A few very large pull through sites are available, but most are back-in. The operation of the campground has been taken over by a concessionaire. We didn't see a lot of park employees, just someone who dropped off our pass as we were setting up, as we had reserved and paid ahead. The entrance gate was unmanned the whole time we were there, apparently this is still off-season. The park is actually very near the town of Coldspring, even with the secluded feel of the spot. All in all, a very nice park. The overnight fee given does not include the on line reservation fee. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here twice in the past 5 months and were not disappointed either time. Really nice and private sites surrounded by forest. Nice long trails for walking and biking. A swimming lake to cool off and lots of picnic areas. They also have boat rentals. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a US Forest Service campground and it is immaculate. I almost hate to advertise it and keep it a secret. It has paved roads, paved sites and the grounds are very clean and maintained. Sites range from full hook up to primitive. Has small lake for fishing, boating (canoes, paddleboats, that type) and plenty of walking trails. Very quiet and in the middle of a national forest. There are also double sites if you are going with a friend that also has a trailer or RV. Several pull throughs and all of the back-ins are easy to get into for even the most novice backers. Staff and workampers are very helpful and cheerful. Doesn't have swimming pool, but does have roped off area and beach on lake. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park. Sites are not crammed together. Pleasant, helpful people in charge. Tall pine trees provide shade. Owners held a get-together on the Saturday before Easter with fried chicken. Everyone brought a dish and ate together. Was nice. We will return to this park again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a wonderful discovery. This is family oriented park and has plenty for the kids to do. Has about 6 miles of hiking trails with little things to discover along the way. Park was fairly empty while we were here and was so peaceful. Owners were on site and involved. Camp host was very nice and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice, quiet park, family friendly. Owners are on site and involved. Camp hosts were very nice. There are many tall pine and hardwood trees. Most sites are very shady. Wonderful walking trails, about 6 miles of them intersecting each other. They have put little "treasures" along the way, making it a fun whimsical walk. They also put some benches out along some ravine overlooks, nice for a quiet rest. Nice little playground and a covered pavilion for gatherings. The store and office are clean and well stocked. Our verizon phones and wifi card worked great. We didn't use the park wifi, but they do have it. Could only make one criticism and its a small one, a couple of campers had strung up clotheslines for some items, it looked a little "off"..but it did not deter our overall enjoyment of this park. This is worth getting off the road for..a great park to rest and relax..Lake Livingston and other things to do are within driving distance. We would come back here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a fairly new park. It has spacious sites and big rig friendly. Lots of shade. The campground has lots of walking trails with neat stuff to find. The staff was very friendly. The restrooms were clean and actually pretty. The restrooms also are air conditioned. They have a store within walking distance from any site. We would stay here again. Only drawback is there is no swimming. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a new RV park that is barely a year old. Each site has full hookups and the Wi-Fi works very well. All sites are large with amble room for very large rigs. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This is a family friendly park that welcomes snowbirds but does not have permanent residence like many other parks I have been to. There are lots of trees for shade and lots of trails for hiking. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean, beautiful park! Lakeside sites are spectacular. Feels like a park in the middle of the woods. We have been enjoying it for years. I highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed in site 72. Best side of the park in my opinion. Great place for fishing, biking, campfires, and walks. Very pretty area. We would stay here again. Concrete roads and site pads. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Site rate plus a per/person entrance rate. Good playground area for our kids. Good paved access roads, some concrete pads for RV's. Lots of space between sites. Park store has putt-putt-golf. Boat ramp and marina supplies. Basketball court, sand volleyball court. Fishing supplies available in park store. Huge pine trees throughout park. Great place for day trips or extended stays. Limited small-town craft shopping in Coldspring, TX nearby. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Not the first time we stayed at Wolf Creek. It's still the most beautiful RV park in the USA. Pay the $5 extra for the lake front spots overlooking beautiful Lake Livingston. Even impatient kids can catch Catfish here it's so easy. Take time out to explore Coldspring, especially the old jail house. Bathrooms leave a bit to be desired but are OK. They advertise laundry facilities but there are none. The grounds are 2nd to none. Lots of open grass acreage, lots of woods, lots of Deer. Very spread out and no cramped feeling. No hearing your neighbors talking here as all spots are well separated. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Scenic lake and wooded campground. We stayed in site #91 elec/water hookups. It was a very shady and roomy site. Roads are rough in this loop. The lake and all park amenities very nice. Restrooms were very filthy. We complained to staff and was advised they are cleaned once a week on Monday. Staff member didn't seem shocked or to even care. We were there on July 4th weekend and needless to say by Monday the bathrooms looked like a war zone. We were very disappointed so overall all rating reflects this. Sent off an e-mail to TRA headquarters and are waiting for response. We would probably go back but more than likely will just keep going to the State Park in Livingston. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent park run by the Trinity River Authority. Has great management. Has nicely spaced pads. Some spaces have sewer hookup while others don't, so be sure to ask if that is important to you. Trash pickup at your site 3-4 times per day. Many sites are right on the lake with wonderful views. We camped at one of the lake front sites for four nights. We had stayed here one other time on a non-lakefront site but still had a great view of the lake. I really can't say enough good things about this park. If you ride, bring your motorcycle. There are a lot of good back roads to cruise. The park is closed during the winter months. It is open March to November. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The full hookup sites ($20) are in a circle, and close together. The other sites w/ water & electric ($17) have more privacy. Waterfront, $4 extra. The "Overflow" sites w/no hookups are $10, no big rigs. Have camped here since it opened in the 70's. The other reviews are right. It's a very nice park, much better than the state park across the lake. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A Texas Jewel! We loved this park. Our site was right on the lake, literally, what a view! We fished off the bulkhead and caught catfish and perch all weekend under a beautiful moon right behind our trailer. All sites appeared well maintained and ours did not require any leveling. The kids enjoyed the putt putt, swim beach and snowcones (sold at the park store). This park is very close to town and other marinas for any supplies or bait that you can't get at the park store. The bathrooms were clean, but could use some updating. There are no trails, but this campground has paved roads that are nice for biking or walking. We will return again this year. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Another visit and another perfect 10 score. We arrived about 3 weeks after hurricane IKE and they were still cleaning up downed trees and debris but the place was in good shape. We stayed 5 days this time. I notice they installed AC in the bathrooms which is a good thing. Place is pitch black dark at night with all the tree cover. The lake is beautiful as always. Catfishing is second to none. It's not even a challenge to catch them. We caught about 50 and put them all back in. Only complaint: Still no Wi-Fi or cable. Only 3 TV stations can be had and 2 are religious junk. Best park in the country ! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great family park. We truly enjoyed ourselves. We looked at some of the other area parks while we were here and found that Wolf Creek much more family oriented with it's amenities than Double Lake and even Livingston State Park. The others parks have very secluded sights, but are nice. The kids like being able to do things other than fish and look at the stars. The kids loved the playground, and sites on the water were great. We will definitely be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful park in the amongst the tall pines on Lake Livingston. Waterfront sites are beautiful, we stayed up on the hill away from the lake. These sites had hookups but were more privative type. We are returning next week as we truly enjoyed this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our most favorite campground in the USA. Upon our first visit 2 years ago to this camp I fell hard for the beautiful area of Coldspring, Texas. So I bought our retirement property on the big lake. Everything about this place is beautiful. The perfectly done grassy lawns, smooth paved roads, heavy tree cover, well kept grounds. And oh the lake front sites are the very best. Drive by Lake Livingston State Park and come here. The only negative thing I can say about this camp is the office staff seemed like a typical government employee. If you are lucky you will experience a lightning storm over the lake in the middle of the night. Pay the extra $5 for the lake front site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great family park. The park employees were very nice and helpful. The couple who owns the Marina where extremely nice. Lots of shade trees, picnic tables, playground, sand volley ball court, fishing pier, boat rentals, minature golf. This park was very peaceful and relaxing. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park, sites are close and good for a multiple camping group. Park is closed from November 30th until March 1st. There are 39 full hookups and many more with water/ electricity and more still for tenting, some are right on the water. There is a small store for essentials and the people are very friendly. This is definitely a family oriented park and we will be back soon. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
