Great camping 2 hours from Dallas

I visited the Shortleaf camping area in the Tyler State Park for the weekend to participate in a 50k trail race. Each campsite in this area has a sheltered cabin, picnic table, fire pit and 2 parking spots. Tent camping is also permitted on the site but I used my iKamper Roof Top Tent as my primary…

Perfect First Trip!

We brought our Springdale Mini by Keystone to The Boulders for our first ever camping trip and could not have had a better experience. The grounds were clean and well maintained. Concrete sites made setup and leveling super easy. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful - when we mentioned it…

Nice well kept place.

Very clean and great place to stay. Only stayed 1 nite but if back in area, would stay longer. Staff was very friendly and courteous! Great pull thru site. Plenty of room to leave hooked up...

Locked up!

This may be a great campsite but for us it was terrible. When we arrived at 11pm the gates were locked with no one in site. Was supposed to be a one night stopover with a morning swim. Ended up at the rest stop instead. Not a single word about late arrivals at the gate or on recreation.gov.

Good swimming facilities

We camped for 1 night and swimmer during summer for a friends birthday. The area is marked clearly with a deck in the middle of water. This helps you take a nice swim with adequate rest at the other end. Fun place for kids.

Calm place for primitive camping

The camping isn’t primitive as such but it has campsites segregated by bushes, ensuring privacy. We went here both in summer and winter and found the facilities adequate.

Great weekend getaway!

Went here with the kids and my brother in law and his family. Was able to get 2 spots side by side right by the water park.

Kids loved every minute of our stay! Had plenty of things to keep them busy! Will be back soon!

Overnight Stop

This park is close to highway and great for overnight stay. The park has pull through full site hookups. The park has a pond that is the center of the entire campground. The park has two dog parks available as well for those traveling with pets.

Two things I loved:

  1. Close to highway quick…

Peaceful

This point is first come first serve, find any spot you like. Primitive camping. Restrooms have recently been torn down and are going to be rebuilt. It's a great spot for Kayaking and other water sports, or just relaxing in the water. Also, a great place to watch 4th of July fire works show put on…

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…

  • Beautiful access to the lake.
  • Beautifully spaced sites, but extremely unlevel front to back.
  • Partially submerged platforms made things unsafe and difficult to load the kayak.

Beautiful camping spot

Purtis Creek State Park This was a very small park but it was quiet and peaceful. The primative sites are a .6 mile walk. The park office recommended site E because it was harder for people to see you if they are walking on the trail. It was a fantastic spot!

Peace and quiet

Friendly staff at check-in. We stayed in campsite 29 which is kind of elevated a bit and we had a great view of the lake. Even tho it rained quite a bit we still enjoyed ourselves. Local sheriff’s dept and park ranger made several trips through the park which made it feel secure. Bathroom…

Great Beach and Fishing

Nice, large park with large RV sites and good privacy. The grounds are well kept and sites are level. Verizon signal was weak with only 1-2 bars, suitable for phone calls and text only. Over air antenna only caught 2 good clear channels, neither was a major network, so glad we had some DVD’s with…
