Portal sign at West Lake Crockett on the Caddo National Grassland Located on the northwest shore of the 450-acre Lake Crockett, West Lake Crockett Recreation Area was completed in 1968. Lake Crockett was built in the 1930s as a recreation site for the area. Visitors may fish from the shore.
This is a unique park without any fan fair from what is called a National anything. Coincidentally this is a National Grassland area and looked to be ran by the forest service with the similar campground organization. This particular are looked like it hasn't been taken care of since it was constructed. The bathrooms were in disrepair, buildings and infrastructure were falling down a little bit and it looked like rangers hadn't visited in some time. If you RV camp, this could be a decent stop over for a night and you like to fish. There weren't any hookups for RV's but the price of $4 a night can't be beat. There were a few tables and fire pits sprinkled around the area but no formal sites other than that from what I could tell.
This is another great hidden away campground in the Caddo National Grasslands Wildlife Management Area. It is only 3 miles from Coffee Mill campground, but does not have the parking lot area for lake access. The camp features around 8-10 campsites; established fire rings and picnic tables at each. The toilets are pit toilets. As you can see in one of the photos there is this cool old fireplace, looks like a CCC build, just out in the middle of a sunny grassy area. It was overall a pleasant campground, my only concern would be the bugs if it is hot weather. The campground is close to the lake, and I can see mosquitoes being an issue in the summer.
