My family and I really enjoyed staying at Eisenhower State Park. We traveled with 2 adults, a toddler, and four teenagers for 4 nights. We arrived on late Friday afternoon and were assigned to campsite 89. The pull through site itself would have been fine but the picnic area was treacherous. It was quite steep and kind of rough terrain. I called the perk office and asked them if we could move because with a toddler, there was no way site 89 was going to work. We moved to site 74 and it was a nice site but we could not get our RV stable enough for our comfort because the site was so unlevel and going downhill. I again called the office, they are extremely friendly and accommodating. We moved our third time to site 63. Although it was one of the smallest site for the camper, we managed and were glad we did! It has a very large picnic/yard area. And you can hit the nature trails directly from the site. After moving campsites three times and after walking through the camping area, there are not many sites that are level. It was obvious that several people had trouble getting their campers level. The nature trails are great! There was some rough terrain a couple of times but overall we all enjoyed them. The restrooms/showers in the Bois D Arc area were okay. They were clean, but there are no shower curtains/doors on the showers. The shower water temperature constantly fluctuated every time a toilet was flushed, nothing we couldn't deal with though. The Park Rangers seemed to have a heavy presence in the area. We saw them driving through at least 5-6 times daily. Beautiful park! Lots of fun! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our first trip to this park and we had a very enjoyable experience. We will return. Our site was not level, but pulling up on blocks took care of that. Even though the park was full, everyone was on good behavior and it was very quiet at night. The sites are well spaced and you're not crammed in on top of each other. Almost all of the sites are shaded and a few in the north section of the park have a slight view of the lake through the trees. I would recommend to stay away from sites 85 thru 89 as they were close to a sewer lift station and the smell was terrible in that area. Besides the nightly rate, you do get charged a daily per person admission fee of $5 each. If you have more than 2 vehicle units (our truck and trailer counted for 2 units) on the site, they also charge you an additional $4 per night for an excess vehicle fee. If your site hasn't been used for a while, the water will have a real bad sulfur smell for a few minutes, but that will clear up after a few gallons of water are run out. The area is hilly with a lot of trees and the hiking trails were great. The park rangers were friendly and they drove through the camping area several times each day. We did see several deer during our stay. Dogs are abundant, but they must be on a leash. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We’ve stayed several times over the past six or so years. We like it because it has full hook-ups (Bois D’Arc Ridge area) and it’s close enough to the Dallas / Fort Worth area for a weekend trip. There are several hiking trails in the park which we’ve explored on previous trips. There is a small swim beach but as others have mentioned it’s quite a hike down the steps to get there. I don’t think we’ve ever been there that we didn’t see any deer. There is a little meadow just as you turn into the Bois D’Arch Ridge area and they are frequently there early in the morning or in the early evening. We’ve also seen them around the campsites. On one previous trip there was a couple deer within ten feet of our travel trailer. During this trip I saw a doe and fawn about two campsites away. They have two fishing docks which we’ve enjoyed using. During the summer months the campgrounds can be fairly crowded, although I don’t think they’ve ever been sold out when I’ve tried to make reservations. This past weekend the campgrounds were fairly empty. As with most of the Texas State parks were built by the CCC, so they are old and recent budget challenges have left them in disrepair. This year the budget situation has improved and I noticed that they had re-surfaced the roads in the campground. There is a yacht club in the park where you can buy bait and which has some boat rentals. The last time I checked the rental prices, they seemed pretty high and I think all they had available was pontoon boats. The nightly camping rate does not include admission to the park. If you don’t have a Texas State Park Pass, you have to pay $5.00 per day for each person 13 or over. By the way, when you buy a Texas State Park Pass, you also get a couple of electronic coupons for one-half off a day (night) of camping. The park has always been clean and the restrooms, while dated, are clean. Many of the sites in the Bois D’Arc Ridge area are not level. Several years ago we had a spot that was so unlevel, we overextended a jack on our old travel trailer. Many of the sites (particularly on the outside of the loops) are long enough for larger rigs. We were in site 82 which was over 100 foot long. They said it was “level” and it was level from front to back, but was not level from side to side. Our automatic leveling system had our right tires off the ground. They are supposed to have Wi-Fi available, but we didn’t use it, so I can’t report on it. We did have one complaint on this trip. There was a burn ban in effect, but it was not posted anywhere. I knew there were burn bans in some of nearby counties, but in the past fires were allowed in the fire rings. After we bought firewood from the park headquarters (again no mention of the burn ban) we were told by a Ranger that fires were only allowed for cooking and had to be extinguished after cooking. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We drove the 5 1/2 miles off the highway, after a long travel day, to get to this campground, only to find out the only sites available were back-ins and the only one we fit into had the electrical box sealed. We walked the campground trying to find another spot, but none were long enough for us to leave our less than 32' 5th wheel attached to our truck. We also had to back up and re-enter some of the roads as they were all very narrow and lined with trees, so not much swing space. The sites were gravel and the majority of them were very uneven also. When I called this park earlier in the day, we were told they do not take reservations, it is first come first served. They told us to arrive and pick a spot. No one was at the entrance building when we arrived about 4:45 on a Sunday afternoon. After a half hour, we finally gave up, drove away and spent the night in the local Walmart - not my favorite place to spend the night at all - but there was nothing else! We will never come here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
