Relaxing holiday weekend

Doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles but does have sewer, lake views, wide open spaces, and clean! Great food places nearby. Only drawbacks are I level sites and front gates don’t open til 10am every morning so can’t get back in if you go get breakfast.

Beautiful Lake Views

Wide open spaces and beautiful lake views. The sites are far apart and lots of green space. Pavement is old and a little rough, but workable. The park host is extremely nice and helpful.

Tent camping is an afterthought.

Overnighted here returning home from a longer trip. It was okay for what I was doing, but I would never choose to camp here as a destination as a tent camper.

Activities: looking at the lake, bringing a boat to put in the lake, fishing. Seemingly nothing else to do.

Accommodations: clearly geared towards RVers. Each of those sites have water, electricity, and a sewer connection, with a covered cement pad with a grill, a table, and other relevant features. The few tent camp sites were shoved seemingly randomly between and around the RV sites. At my particular site, the concrete pad and picnic table were cracked and seriously damaged, and few grill was rusty enough to be almost unusable. The fire pit and ground of the rest of the site were littered in bits of trash ranging from things like food wrappers, pieces of plastic hangers, and my personal favorite - a construction nail.

The only bright light of this camp experience for me? The bathrooms. Each bathroom ( 2 per building) was a single occupant bathroom with a locking door. In the bathroom was a sink, a toilet, a hand dryer, and a shower with two nozzles at different heights (tall and short). The appliances were stainless steel, and the bathrooms were clearly excellently maintained. The bathrooms also had automatic lighting, an exhaust fan, and what appeared to be a tiny space heater for colder months. The showers had hot water, and the drains in the floor were sufficient at getting all the excess water out of there quickly.

In summary, if you have an RV and/or a boat and love to do things on the water, this is probably a fine campground. If you are taking a tent, I'd avoid this campground.

Nice, local stay!

This park is a nice local place to visit. It has full hookups and the sites are extremely distanced from one another which is great. The main thing to do here is to boat or fish, however the platforms are extremely in disrepair - literally falling into the lake (see photo of us trying to load the kids into kayak from the submerged platform).  The ones we saw were actually dangerous.  Every single site has a unique view of the lake, even those high up on the circular arrangement. Our site was very unlevel on the hill, so bring your chocks. It rained and rained while we were there, but we still had  a nice time with the grandkids. And it's close enough to Dallas to make a reasonable place to stay. There are zero amenities there - the playground mentioned in ads no longer exists.

Great for something close by

Nothing to knock you socks off, but it’s a great campsite close to home and nice for a quick getaway. Has the feel of being somewhat remote since it’s out by the lake.

We’ve camped in the site with the horse stables and put the tents with questionable rain flys in the horse stable.

Boring

I only went there because I had a family member camping there and I was going down to Canton flea market. It is a small campground. I didn't like it. There ain't many trees or camping spots. It did have a boat ramp. The bathrooms needed attention. There wasn't a daily access fee. People were not friendly.

Meh

This is more like being at a day park where you'd find playground equipment (except there isn't any). If you have kids and are just looking for an easy day out on the lake, this is great. If you want something a little wilder, definitely skip this area and head somewhere else.
