VERY close together/owner is awesome

We stayed here on Labor Day weekend. It was very packed. However at this location everyone sits right on top of one another. There wasn’t even enough room to sit outside and enjoy it. I will have to say the owner is VERY helpful and nice. We pull a 35 foot 5th wheel and he originally had us in a spot where our rig would not fit. He was so kind enough on a busy weekend to swap us to a different spot at the very last minute. We were right on the water and we got to fish. If I had to rate this spot I would give it a solid 7 out of 10 just based on the fact that we were so close to one another. No fire ring or picnic table. Bathrooms were clean and facility in general there was pleasant.

Cagle Recreation Area

Quiet and comfortable, we stayed during the week so there wasn’t many people there. Decided to stay an extra day, the process was a little complicated, we had to pay by cash, but not really a big deal. Really isolated area which was a good and bad thing. Good because we were able to get away from everything, bad because when we needed something from a store we had to travel a ways to get it. The only thing we wished was there was a swimming hole.

Out of the Way but Nice

Gated campground located at the end of a one lane no outlet road. Layout and campsites well arranged with dedicated dog walk, workout area and laundry. Did I say there is not much around there to do?

Best TT by far!

Truly a great place! Friendly staff, nice facilities, and it's on a lake with an actual beach!

Shade and friendly site hosts!

This is a great spot to camp so close to the lake without all the hustle and bustle of other campgrounds in the area. Just a few nicely treed acres a half mile from town, perfect home base to explore the area. A large, clean, porta-potty and the nice cool well water make it worth the money.

Central location in Kemah, TX

New, smaller park with all the amenities. Level concrete pads will accommodate RVs up to 40 feet. All are back in sites with sewer, city water, 20/30/50 amp power, cable TV, and WiFi included. There’s a nice club house for parties, laundry facilities, a pool next to the bayou, fishing and kayaking/canoeing in the bayou and a friendly staff that keeps the park clean and cared for.

Cagle Recreation Area - National Forest

March 22-29, 2019 Located in Sam Houston National Forest. Electric, water and sewer. Dump station. Showers and flush toilets. TV reception - CBS+. Received 1/2 price with lifetime sr pass but had to pay additional $10 per day.

Camping and Hiking

We reserved our reservations a head of time, showed up, and the staff was very helpful and went easy. They keep the park and restrooms clean clean. We got to hike the 40 Acre Trail (about an hour hike) and the whole family loved it. Definitely will be back soon in the future for the other trails and activities.

Where the forest meets the river

Fun little campground in the river! Great for hikes in the shady trees, or even a bike ride!

Each time is a new experience

This is our 4th trip here. And we have already planned our 5th. We love how big this park is. Each time we come and get a new site, it’s like a whole new park. Nestled in the trees our first time out with rocks, and today we are on a flat concrete pad. Lots of room to bike. We love the lake. We haven’t even used the pool or facilities because of Covid but we still love it here. Everyone complains of the roads but nothing different than the state parks we use. So far we have had no problems with the equipment or hook ups. Bath houses are nice but we don’t use them. The dog park is perfect for you and your puppers to make new friends. There is a boat launch and pier for fishing. Plus catfish cove. I did not have any luck in the little bass pond. I will say, this place gets busy on a Holiday but the kids like having so many others to play with. We especially loved our evening basketball tournaments.
