Very secluded and low volume area. I would consider this a rough site. Not for thin skinned people expecting a beautiful oasis. There is a passable boat ramp, few covered picnic tables and a cornhole “bathroom” there. No ele or water. Tons of hiking if you follow the road in and look for the 4x4 paths to the right. No fee admission. Tent/trailer/rv/sleep in car/on the ground, whatever. Lots of arrowheads laying around if your lucky to spot one. Highly suggest having some sort of personal protection for the critters that come in the wee hours of the night.

I appreciate all the park workers but the short guy with the glasses is a real jerk.but still my favorite place.

Thousand Trails

Love the location, so close to Dallas! This park is so quite and very dark at night! I loved that about this park, glad I arrived during the daylight it would be very difficult to find an RV spot at night! They have several full hookup sites closed right now due to some upgrades! The rest rooms were very clean! They have a good hiking trail! I had to walk about 1/2 mile to get to the water! It was so worth it! Got there just in time to go fishing while there were Sand Bass schooling! I ended up catching 15 and could have caught more but it was getting dark.

Beautiful Lake

Only 2 trails, one of which is lacking. But it makes up with beautiful lake views.

Enjoyable

Nice city walking trail nearby and the Paluxy River. Family oriented with pool Extra charge for pool usage. Restaurants in walking distance. Pull-thru accommodations for large coaches with Full Hook ups.

Pretty Nice

This recreation.gov campground was adequate for our needs. Most sites are shady, the outdoor tables we're sturdy, and there were fire pits and a separate cooking grill on a raised post. They parking pass we're decent asphalt. It is located on Lake Waco. There was some road noise from the highway. The toilet/shower house left a little to be desired. It wasn't as clean as it could have been. The women's showers had 2 stalls, one handicapped. The handicapped shower did not work. The other shower had a very difficult shower head to control the volume and direction of the spray. It was very cold the first morning and the shower building is not heated and had open screening at the top so showering was very eye opening! But the trees were beautiful with quite a few pecan trees. We would probably camp there again.

Great campground. Friendly camphost

Very clean and we'll maintained. Large v spaces.

Beautiful scenery

Very nice private campground on a family ranch

Interesting place

Situated on Lake Livingston, it is located at the back of a golf course subdivision of interesting mix of houses. This was quite the campground back in the day. Some sites are on the lake and some have lake views. It is a quiet park with most sites unoccupied. It is a membership type park but they accept several camping groups like Passport America.

Just off the highway...

It’s a place to rest your head and wash your clothes. The pool and dog park are excellent additions and I really enjoyed that!
