I was looking for a closer, cheaper place for weekend getaways. I didn't really expect to find such a nice place to go. The Lower Colorado River Authority maintains many parks associated with their dams, lakes, and river control. It is currently under renovation so the showers/bathroom were not open, but that is not a problem for us. They also upgraded the electric and water so more sites have 50 amp service than show on the website. A limited number of sites have sewer hookup. The full hookup sites are wonderful. They are pull through with exceptionally long parking areas and well separated sites and nice tree cover. The rear view is a beautiful 1300 acre lake. The sites slope front to back (easily within the landing gear range) but are very level side to side. There were large open areas thick with clover. Boat launching area was double wide with dock and tie up areas. Fishing pier. Wide 5 mile long trail connects to the South Shore park. $20 full hookup fee and $4 per person per day for park access. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our first time here. The park had been recommended by a friend that had camped here several times. This park is clean and the pine trees are beautiful. The only issue we had was with the park host. He was extremely rude with the group and made us feel like we were criminals. The park rangers were very nice and the other campers were very friendly. If we ever decide to return, I will make sure they have a different camp host. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

State park atmosphere. Sites are long and wide, shady, secluded and paved. Paved roads, good water pressure, close to lake and pier. Sites are not very level, no store on site, but close. Each site has graveled areas, fire rings, tables and trees. Good for kids. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
