So peaceful

Love it

Small Campground with few amenities

The park overall was a small one. Our spot was a nice lake front area that was very spacious and a beautiful view.  There is no playground that we could find, even though I read online that they had one. The bike trails were pretty short. Plenty of ducks to feed, but they were not interested or just didn’t like the boat. To our surprise, there was also plenty of snakes! We crossed one on the road as we drove in and saw several swimming in the lake. See our full #ChampagneOnDeck trip highlights at https://www.bulbapp.com/u/hickory-creek-lake-lewisville

Everything for a great, quiet family getaway

This was our first destination with our travel trailer. Despite the rain and the fact that we camped in the wrong spot (whoops), we had a great time. The spot we took had double parking, so our camper opened up to pavement. There was a fire pit, a covered picnic table area, and plenty of open space for the kids to play. Due to Covid 19, many areas were closed. No day campers allowed and the closed beach and playground left the area quiet and crowd free, just what one would be looking for during a global pandemic. The park administration was kind and helpful. They let us stay in our spot even though we accidentally set up in the wrong one. (newbies). The park has hiking trails, a playground, and beach area.

Nice park Bad management

My daughter rented a cabin for her birthday so my wife and I rented an RV spot close to the cabin to spend time with her. 2 days before her birthday she received a call that the AC was out and they had to cancel her reservation. When my wife and I arrived there was someone in the cabin. We asked if they were having trouble with the AC. There response “No it works great. Or other cabin didn’t work so they moved us over here”.

Beautiful Place to stay with some history!

Great place to camp in the RV park next door! Crystal clear water, swimming pool, Recreation Center.

First trip with the new travel trail

So we took out our new travel trailer out for its first quick trip. We made this one a short trip, and it was nice but here are a few things to know about the park. They don’t have a camp store for any of the odds and ends that you might have forgotten, so make sure you double check your lists before you leave home. They’ve got a firewood locker, but it’s by the headquarters at the front of the park. The site we stayed in (108 in loop H) would’ve been a lot better if you had a bunch of people you know camping together. It kind of circled around this communal feeling opening in the loop. We were able to fit our 32’ trailer with my f150 super crew next it to, kinda tightly. The weather was cool with the wind coming off the lake, so we broke out the solo stove!

Very nice

Our site had a concrete pad for our rv. Full hookups are very nice. While we were here nightly thunderstorms came in. The staff were on top of it as they drove around alerting everyone about the wind approaching. Clean laundry room and restrooms. We didn’t use the store due to corona fears and didn’t need to. Pet friendly. Quiet at night. I would absolutely stay here and recommend it to anyone. The only spring time issue is lake flooding will close it.

Beautiful park

We stayed at two camp sites the 3 days I was there. Close to home and a lot of things to do in the area and at the park.

Park was nice and clean and quiet at night very peaceful. Bathrooms were decent.

Other than that was a nice park. Best time to visit is in the spring or fall for sure. It was a million degrees when we went so we spent most of the day n the water.

Great Lake view

Arrived late Friday evening. Office closes at 6. Was escorted to site. Connections for water and electric aren’t in best spots but able to reach. They offer extension cords. They aren’t labeled to who’s is who’s. They are strict about parking. Can’t park truck in front of trailer have to park in designated alley. We weren’t done unloading before we were asked to move it. Sites are pretty close. We were lucky to have a corner with good view of lake. Bathrooms were closed due to covid. Overall good place to go. The lake has plenty of areas for swimming for all ages didn’t see play area.

Tent Camping

Camped at primitive site #6. These are not drive up campsites and none are on the water. The bathrooms are not super close either. But all campsites are shady and clean. We had a picnic table and fire pit. There are a few places to swim, but none of them shaded. Saw lots of paddle boards and kayaks along with the boats. Beautiful park!
