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.
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!
We stayed for a quick night en route north. The host left the gate code for us since we arrived after 9 and checked on us in the morning. Site B14 was a pull through with an actual deck looking out on the lake. It was beautiful and easy to set up in the dark, fit our RPod and a truck easily. Clean bathrooms, lots of wildlife. Trash in the fire pit and the water was hard to turn on but those were minor issues. Would stay there again.
COE park on Wright Patman Lake. Numerous sites with full hookups, many with electricity & water. The staff here are super friendly & helpful. Deer are oftentimes seen in the park. Clean restrooms with showers. Boat launch & dock. Lakeview sites have great views but no sewer hookups. Ants can be bad during summer & fall.
very popular. some nice sites on the lake but most are not on the lake.
