Piney Point Park is situated on the shore of 30,000-acre Wright Patman Lake within the piney woods of northeast Texas. This facility offers campers a complete range of services and year-round outdoor activities like fishing, hunting and wildlife viewing.
Piney Point has plenty of open space and shade in which children can play, as well as a volleyball court and a 1.3-mile hiking trail that leads to nearby Rocky Point Campground and its swimming beach.
Other activities on the lake include boating, fishing, hunting, picnicking and wildlife viewing. Boaters can make use of the park's boat ramp, and anglers can try their luck for bass, catfish, crappie and sunfish.
The campground has comfortable accommodations with 45 campsites with water and electricity, as well as a group picnic shelter for day use only that can host up to 75 people. Campsites have picnic tables, grills, utility tables and trash cans. Restrooms, showers and a dump station are provided.
The park is located in a southern pine forest overlooking the lake. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers manages approximately 55,000 acres of public forestland around the lake, providing habitat for wild turkey, bobwhite quail, squirrel, white-tailed deer, waterfowl and migrating bald eagles, pelicans and ducks. Some poisonous snakes inhabit the area.
The Texarkana region is full of activities such as shopping, movies, restaurants and local historical sites. Shreveport, Louisiana offers river boat gambling, horse races and numerous festivals, including the Four State Fair and Rodeo and the Jump, Jive and Jam Festival.

Clean campground with decent sized sites. Only a handful are 50 amp, which we were fortunate to get. The park isn’t very large (about 50 sites). Exterior sites have more space between them than interior sites. Lots of people pulling their boats up to the shoreline and docking there. Lots of shade. Nice little campground, but because of the size, don’t expect to be “away from it all.” Nice playground for those with kids. Rocky Point campground (also COE) is just around the corner. Only cons (not the park, but camping etiquette): I have noticed a lot of folks not adhering to the “pets on leash” rule, and people also don’t seem to mind walking through others’ campsites. Beautiful trees, water is nice, and the campground is close to town if you need to run out for supplies. Will definitely camp here again.
This is one of a few camping areas on the Wright Patman Lake. It’s a set up for RV camping more than tent camping. If you choose to tent camp, you will most likely be camping on an asphalt parking pad in most of the sites. Very open campground, not much privacy or seclusion. Since it’s only 15 minutes from our house, we occasionally choose this campground for a quick weekend getaway when we aren’t able to go up into Arkansas or Oklahoma. Clean bathrooms and showers, friendly staff, but not a place to go if you want to get away from everyone and everything, and enjoy nature.
the bathrooms are on. it is close to the intake for the water company so it is rather loud.
Nice well spaced sites with level concrete pads. Lots of trees for shade in most sites. Beautiful views from the sites on the bluff. It has been quiet every time we were there . Playground ,boat ramp , nice clean showers and rest room. the staff has always been helpful. Most sites are water and electric but there may be some with full hookups . If not , there is a dump station . Very family friendly . No swimming area , but at my age that is not a big deal.
