On the way back from Pickett State Park, to Texas, we decided to stay at the Wrangler site again. This time, I picked a new pad (56) and again, it was dark, quiet and beautiful. This park is huge, with TONS of site choices available. The tent sites seemed full, but we prefer less people. The updated photo below. We had to book through recreation.gov app, which was easy enough, but misleading on what sites are booked and not booked. Would absolutely return to this beautiful State Park.
There are 3 different campgrounds in thos very large state park. Cub Lake is for tents or small campers with water & electric hookups. The Wrangler Camp is for horse riders with water & electric hookups. The Pin Oak Campground is for RVs. Every site has full hookups. Two nice bath houses, a pavilion, playground, beach area, and boat dock. It is very open with several trees, but not not a lot of shade. The pictures in this review are only from Pin Oak Campground.
Nice campground. Clean, pet friendly. A lot of sites! Access to lakes. Saw a lot of wildlife for such a big campground with lots of people traffic.
We were just passing through and picked this park to stay the night in our 21 ft trailer. Wow! Super quiet, dark and cool the first week of October. (See photo) We stayed in the Wrangler site, which is typically for horses. (ATV’s not allowed) Trees haven’t changed yet. Would definitely come again.
I liked the layout of the campsites they give you just enough space that you’re not right on top of one another.
The bathrooms are super outdated but the place is not expensive so that’s not a real complaint.
Dead bugs and cobwebs All over the bathroom and no soap for washing your hands.
Seems like it would be a great place for people who bring their horses camping with them. Lots of woods and trails and shade it was pleasant.
The campground is right on the river and very quiet and peaceful. Porta-potties are available in the primitive campground and they’re very clean. The staff was helpful and came by to check in on us when they saw we had trouble with a tent pole that had broken. Bug spray is a must here, the mosquitoes are awful that close to the river but that’s the only negative thing we encountered.
Our second time visiting PRRR. We stayed up the hill on a corner lot during the 4th of July. It was our first time and it was a wonderful experience. We ventured down the hill and spent time on the water. We had plenty of space to roam around in the river even while visiting during a peak time. So naturally we booked again and ended up snagging a beautiful riverside location at pad #9 The park owner Casey and Grounds manager Mike are the best and so gracious! We had a wonderful time exploring the property. Full hooks ups and a level pad made setup a breeze. Allen the park host even guided us in our spot and gave assistance getting back in. They do a great job keeping the grounds clean and well manicured. We love this spot and it will be a regular stop for us here in Tennessee. Some of the best access to the Piney right here. Highly recommend!
