All you need. No frills (beyond trails)

The cheapest Texas State Park for electric or electric/water campsites at only 14/night!

Spaces are spread out and loads and loads of pull through sites if that's your thing.

Bathrooms aren't great but if it isn't busy they are fine. Trails are beautiful and if you piece them together can be challenging. This park is very well maintained. I saw a few trail signs that were brand new and another trail is closed for maintenance. These are not wide, take the baby stroller kind of trails. The nature trail goes over a couple foot bridges and has a lot to see.

The beach area is okay with a few amenities. The bathrooms have 2 stalls each, 4 total again if it isn't busy they are fine. No family bathrooms in the whole place.

The sand on the beach is bad. Due to flooding and earth slides the beach front is super deep mud. If there has been even a trickle of rain on the past week you will lose your shoes the mud is so thick. Gorgeous for pictures though =)

The camp store isn't huge but they have shirts and souvenirs.

Nice and dark for star gazing

We, unfortunately, only got to spend one night here on our way through the area but enjoyed some great stargazing due to the park being quite dark.

We appreciated electric and water being at the campsite, especially for only $14 per night.

The only thing negative we noticed during our very short stay was that while the bathrooms were clean, they seemed old and small. Men and women each had just one shower stall and it was behind only a shower curtain in the main restroom area. (We were in the Wilkins Creek Loop.)

Staff was friendly and welcoming. We'd like to come back and explore the area more when we have time.

Friendly hosts

we camped at site 38 hoping for privacy but there were at least 2 campsites in plain sight (though we are probably a bit pickier than most). Trails were really nice despite it having rained the day and night before our hikes. Beautiful to see such towering trees. Saw some deer tracks too! Our dog picked up a tick here so just make sure you're checking your animals/selves

Very clean

Nice and clean park. Quiet but only half full. Only down side is the limited amount of full hookups and then only 1 dump station. All the trail signs are new and easy to find. Camp hosts definitely do there job on checking on the park and ensuring things are taken care of. Sites are pretty good size with table, grill and fire ring. Pads are fairly level, only took 1 2x12 in the one side, make sure to bring blocks for the rear stabilizers as the pad drops off at the back.

Wonderful Views

Best camp ground. Very kid friendly and pet friendly. Most of the spots have some of the best views you have ever seen. Wonderful playground for the kids.

Big family camping trip

Late October and the colors were gorgeous. We were so close, but missed peak fall colors by about a week or so. We plan to go again but next time will have to plan for the whole week.


Campground is really nice and convenient to the crater. Very hot Diamond mining in the summer as there is very little to no shade in the crater. Nice swimming creek nearby.

Great campground with beautiful Lake view

This is another well designed COE campground. Sites are well separated from neighbors. There are some sites (Loops D and E) that have full hookups including sewer, but the most desirable sites are in Loop B, some of which have direct views of the lake. Sites B 1 through B 14 are especially desirable. We had site B 6 which we rate excellent. I am sure that reservations must be made long in advance for these sites.

Volunteer hosts and rangers were friendly and helpful. We will be back.

Quiet, cozy, small rv park

We liked our week long visit here.. It was off the beaten path. Very quiet and peaceful. It seemed most people were gone during the day, maybe working. We explored the state park down the road and went on some fun drives. Easy pull through sites with full hook up. Dog friendly (I think) but there weren't any dogs running loose. There are also a couple cabins in the back it looked like.

**This rv park is not in walking distance to the Cossatot River

Nice and Quiet Under Tall Pines

We arrived for our 4-night stay at this COE campground 177 days after making reservations and were greeted by friendly camp hosts. Our FHU site was spacious but weirdly laid out that had our fire pit just two feet from the neighbor's sewer hookup. Who designs these sites?!?! Level D loop site with sewer hook-up at the rear of parking pad, so bring your loooooooooong stinky slinky!  Heavy-duty concrete picnic table and a bar-height wooden prep table next to a BBQ grill, or as we saw many using it as a fish cleaning table. No vegetation between campsites in the D & E loops. Very clean park! Since our four-night stay was during the week, it was extremely quiet, no road noise, with more than half of the campsites vacant. At 6am we experienced a no-warning total power outage throughout the park for nearly 3 hours. Wildlife viewing was only a couple of deer at dusk 

We read warnings about ANTS so we prepare all items where our trailer touched the ground with ant repellent. We didn't experience any ants what so ever, so not sure if it was because of the repellent or the cooler October temps or we just got lucky!
