A lovely place to stay!

We reserved a spot that evening and had wonderful views of the lake around sunset. The staff were kind, facilities were very clean, and the lot was spacious! My only complaint (as others have said) is that the trails were closed, especially because it didn’t seem muddy or wet. Regardless, we explored the campground for a bit and I believe there is a nature preserve adjacent to the campground with trails, if the state parks trails are closed.

Great spot

Tent camped at site 60 which was great! Right off the water and super close (but not too close) to the restrooms. Weather for us was rough with high winds the first day but the next two were beautiful! Lots of wildlife, as we were pulling into the park we saw lots of deer..and throughout our stay we were visited by some Canadian Geese. The fire circle comes with a grill but it’s pretty small, and this specific site isn’t very level but we found a spot for our tent. Definitely coming back!

Out of season, quiet place to park

We stayed one night, in January, passing through TX. Easy on/off access to I-20. The park is clean, has full hookups, and is right on the river. Wasn't crowded because it was out of season for tubing, so it was quiet. Park felt safe and was a convenient place to spend the night. The people answering the phone were pleasant and helpful. I would stay here again without hesitation when passing through.

Pretty descent, fairly quiet considering proximity to Dallas & DFW

Cell data good on Cricket & Visible. Nice park with smallish loops. Some sites are really small so do your homework. Friendly & helpful staff. Full hookup worked like a champ, minor leveling adjustments. When we spent 3 nights here we could see the planes more than hearing them, but possibly we were on inbound side of DFW due to current winds. We would repeat if on our route.

Looks like fun in the summer

We arrived late  December and it was chilly. Sites with full hook up are limited, but even with annuals are still possible. One thing though, we found a great site (124 ) very close to the water which is a plus for us as my wife is disabled and needs a walker so if the water is too far it becomes and issue, but had to pay $3 more a night due to it being as they said a limited 50 amp service. Even though we are 30, still the cost is $3. With my wife issue it is a no brainer for us. All in all, the campground was quite, you can see when it is summertime, its a wonderful place to bring the family as it has a huge area for kid activities, family gathering and more.

Winter Friendly Campgrounds

Tested out our new camper for the first time - loved this campground, even in the winter! Front office has an extensive selection of grocery goods, supplies, firewood, etc.

Sites have electricity and water, sewer dump is community spread across the grounds.

Our site was only a hundred feet from the lake - gorgeous view!

Pretty Park

It’s a gorgeous park and I’d hate to leave a bad review just because we went at a bad time. Our weekend was filled with rain and wind but the last day we were there was gorgeous and we were able to explore. The campsites aren’t numbered which was confusing and there wasn’t any cell phone signal. (Verizon). Bathrooms were nice though and had great hot water. It’s a kid friendly park with playgrounds and plenty of room to play without to much traffic. We will definitely go back in the summer for our kids and get a more accurate experience of the park.

Nice urban views

Not as quiet and a bit more busy than most Texas state parks we frequent but the kids really enjoyed watching the planes and the skyline views at night. Cant beat full hookup either.

There are plenty of city comforts 10 minutes away. We stopped in the area mostly to disc golf and hang out at the campsite so didn't try any local places eat. At the park there is a nice variety of trails and lake access as well but there were lots of renovations going on so some of the areas were closed.

It was a great place to stop after dealing with the Dallas traffic heading south and will stay again.

Camping Right on the Lake

A very nice campground right on the shores of Lake Whitney. Overall, the campground wasn't too busy. The campsites are nicely spaced out so each group does have some privacy. The campsite has some nice amenities: campfire ring, picnic table with a shelter, and grill. Allegedly there is a trail called the Hopewell Trail that runs by the campground but I could not find any sign of it. 

The campsite does close everyday at 10 pm. At that time, they close the gate and you cannot get back into the campground until 6 am the next morning.

Peaceful yet busy

I would recommend this park highly. We booked 9 days here and will be heading out tomorrow morning. Nicely wooded with a good mix of sun and shade. Park is well maintained and sites are spacious and spread out nicely. It gets very busy on the weekends and most sites are occupied. Swimming beach looked nice but to cold for me to try out. Lots of boat traffic at the landing on weekends. Whitney is a short drive away and offers most anything you may need. Our Verizon service was spotty at best but not totally unusable. We were able to connect to internet with our ATT Hotspot though.
