The year-round campground at Airport Park is perfectly located between Waco Lake and the Waco Airport. Campers can look south and view the pristine waters of the lake, or look north and watch airplanes take off and land.
The main lake shoreline has a large amount of submerged timber, which typically holds fish year-round. Anglers will find plenty of catfish, crappie, large and smallmouth bass as well as sunfish. A boat ramp and dock help visitors enjoy the lake.
Airport Park has 46 sites with 50-amp electric and water hookups, and 22 of these also have sewer hookups. There are 8 screen shelters with electrical outlets and water. Fourteen tent-only campsites without electric are also available. A group camping shelter is available for reservation, and comes with electric, sewer and water hookups. It is equipped with a six-foot grill, 12-foot serving bar, and pavillion with picnic tables. There are eight campsites with electric and water hookups, and six of these have sewer hookups. The group camping area fits about 80 guests.
Airport Park is on the northern banks of Waco Lake, near the dam. The lake is primarily fed by the Bosque River, which runs for 115 miles through central Texas.
Airport Park is located within the City of Waco and is 10 miles from Magnolia Market. About 15 min from Airport Park, Waco Lake Wetlands offers educational tours that take visitors through a six-acre nursery of aquatic plants and more than 130 species of birds. Cameron Park Zoo is also located nearby.

I would like to give this campground a 5, but I can't. We are in a pandemic and the bathrooms are not clean. According to the sign on the door, the restrooms were supposed to be cleaned on Thursday, and some people came and maybe, swept. The men's room and the ladies room doors do not close all the way so there is a rock that everyone is supposed to shove up against the door to keep it shut but many people can't be bothered,so they are full of bugs. The staff that we saw were very helpful and nice, but the bathrooms are not clean.
