Great. Campground

We have stayed at this campgrounds numerous times and always enjoy it. The park host and attendents are great. Park is always clean. Paved sites with gravel pads around picnic tables.

Perfectly Designed for RV Newbies!

Loved this park! It was our first trip in our new Travel Trailer and it couldn't have gone better. We stayed at Yellow Hammer site #9 easy pull through with plenty of room. Not only did all the sites have amazing scenery but the roads were well maintained. Full hookups and AT & T cellphone coverage good enough for working from Trailer. Verizon cellphone coverage didn't work here. Each site fully equipped with fire ring, picnic table, and lantern poles. Wood available for purchase from host. 

Beach & Bath houses were closed due to COVID-19

We spent a lot of time walking with our kids on the trails and riding scooters around the campsite roads. Nature trails were extremely well kept with great views on the water

Best site is Yellow Hammer #17


Nice clean laundry and baths. Nice location on Smith lake. Sites were roomy.

Wifi weak cel singnal weak.

Great place

We loved this place, a little off the heating path but well worth it. You must check out the nature bridge nearby as well as the Houston jail. Sites were large and bathrooms were very clean. Cell service is spotty so either have a mobile data setup or by the local connection for your stay.

This is one of the best!

We reserved a waterfront spot, but our rig wouldn’t fit despite the website saying so, no biggy though. Was able to swap spots and enjoyed our stay. Very nice park, nice beaches and great for walking pets. Most amenities were closed for the season/ COVID. Great staff. We had few bars (Verizon) and no service on t-mobile. Overall great experience, can’t go wrong with any spot.


Local area lacks activities, but this park is a peace goldmine!

Amazing scenery

This place is absolutely beautiful. The birds migrating and stopping along the river make for such a relaxing and peaceful place to stop and relax. The town neighboring the park makes it difficult to do anything because there is not much there unless you plan on driving 30+ minutes away. However, the setting more than makes up for that.

Wonderful Campground Close To Home

Had spots 63 and 64 on Fawn Loop this past weekend. While sites are somewhat spread out, most are within 10-15 yards of another one. Did not make it into the camp store. Get the impression they don’t really have anything there except ice and firewood. While many reviews say the lakeside sites are first come, first serve, under the new management they are all booked in advance online. Last night we were there, while eating dinner, a raccoon walked right into the site next to the fire and then tried to climb on the picnic table. Couple of tips: 1) Leave early to miss the line at the dump stations. We left at 11:15 (12 noon checkout) and were #8 in line. 2) Download an app that shows trailer-friendly routes. Our phones took us through neighborhoods, down gravel roads, and under low-hanging trees and power lines.

Beautiful lakefront campground

The lots were beautifully wooded and spacing between each site was adequate, but you can definitely see from one site to the next. 

The perimeter lake lots in the Hoot Owl Loop all had steps or path access from the site to the shore. This would be especially nice in the summer.

Our site didn't have sewer but had water and electricity. There was also a notice that stated only one of the restroom facilities for the entire campground was available so tent families beware and plan your site accordingly. I believe this was due to cleaning for covid-19 but not sure.

Our site was cleaned before we arrived; no coals in the grill or ash in the pit.

There was a basketball and volleyball area in a nice green space area near the boat launch.

We will definitely be back!
