East Fork Campground, on the southern shores of Lavon Lake, is a popular escape for city dwellers in the Dallas, Texas area or for any visitors passing through the Northern Texas region. The campground boasts everything including RV campsites, tent campsites, equestrian campsites, a group shelter and a swimming beach to keep visitors entertained during their stay.
Boating and fishing are consistently popular activities for lake-goers. Horseback riding and hiking is great along the Trinity Trail, with a trailhead beginning adjacent to the East Fork campground.
The campground offers 50 sites with water and electric hookups, plus 12 tent-only sites. There are not sewer hook-ups at the campsite, but there is a dump station located near the park entrance. It's the only campground at Lavon Lake with 50-amp electricity. Extra conveniences include hot showers and two boat ramps. The group campground is available year-round and fits 175 guests. Horses are allowed at the Equestrian Loop, and each equestrian site has a portable horse stall.

RV sites have water and 50/30 amp electric and there are 12 tent sites. We had a nice view of Lake Lavon. Grills and tables vary by site, some are very old, but many have been replaced. There are trees- some large enough to provide some shade if desired, but most small enough to allow satellite reception. The sites are well spaced and are"mostly" paved with aging asphalt. The roads are in need of repair, with numerous potholes, some very large, but the attendant did say that the park was on the CoEs list for repairs. There is a dump station just outside the entrance. The entry gate is locked from 10PM to 6AM, so plan accordingly if leaving the park, lest you park outside and walk back to your site. Overall, this is a good value, and one of the few non-RV park options in the greater Dallas area.
Enjoyed a night here. Nice, clean, open RV park on Lake Lavon. It’s well established but in good shape. Big level RV sites with grills and covered tables. You’ll enjoy this park!
