Life on the road full time in our 1994 Holiday Rambler Vacationer. Stay tuned for more!

What lake??

Well kept, wooded sites on a mountain. No lake in site. Standard amenities, like pool, hot tub, laundry, outdoor games a community fire pit etc.. Small store as well. 5 minutes to town. Sites are large in most cases. All have fire pit and picnic table, some have bbq grill too. We are only here for a couple days but get a feeling it's a great place to take a family for that weekend camping experience.

Fine for a stop over.

Older campground. Could us a bit of updating. Sites are level. Little pond in front to fish. If your there on the weekend like us, it's a short walk to the Flea market in front. ( Office for campground is in Flea Market. There is a camp host as well. Also has rest rooms and showers. We enjoyed the flea market and was a restful night.

Looks like fun in the summer

We arrived late  December and it was chilly. Sites with full hook up are limited, but even with annuals are still possible. One thing though, we found a great site (124 ) very close to the water which is a plus for us as my wife is disabled and needs a walker so if the water is too far it becomes and issue, but had to pay $3 more a night due to it being as they said a limited 50 amp service. Even though we are 30, still the cost is $3. With my wife issue it is a no brainer for us. All in all, the campground was quite, you can see when it is summertime, its a wonderful place to bring the family as it has a huge area for kid activities, family gathering and more.

Not as far if you take picnic trail

One big issue with this park is the distance to the actual lake itself. You will need a cart or be ready for a hike to the beach area as it is quite a ways from the campground. that is an issue for us as my wife is disabled and needs a walker and we have no cart. But, lucky for us we were in the B section and decided one of the days we were there to attempt the picnic walk. Well worth it, even with a walker we managed to make it down to the waters edge within 15 minutes and its an easy gradual walk. Bring a picnic basket. tables to sit at or on the waters edge.

As for the rest of the camp, most amenities due to winter months and covid were shut down. Did see people enjoying the hot tub. The roads in many of these TT campground in the loop around Dallas do need attention so take your time going through them. We did need to use the laundry and they had ample enough machines and the basic price which was 1.50 and 1.75. The sites are nice, many shaded but snug not of other campers but trees. Some have fire pits, some do not. As with more and more campgrounds these days many annuals throughout the park.

First to Review
Great stop over park Plus its a PA campground as well

We are traveling through Texas, showing my wife all the great places, beauty and people in this fine state. Along our travels to our next TT campground we stopped for two days in this campground just outside LLano, Texas. A great ride out in the country. Besides the quaint town and it's fine shops and restaurants, this pace makes your stay that much more enjoyable. Level pull through sites on gravel, full hookup makes for a fast easy setup. The river is a stones throw away and a great spot to unwind. Sunsets are picture perfect . The evening is "pin drop" quiet. The grounds as well as the laundry, restrooms, etc. a all well kept. You will not be disappointed in this stop nor the shops and food you can find in the town. Well worth the trip off the Interstate and out into the fine country area of Texas.

A TT campground which was comfortable

The river is a beautiful site no doubt. The campgrounds are older and could use a bit of updating. We were close to the river. Was a bit disappointed as when booking through TT website, it said full hook ups when we arrived, only Water and Electric were available. ( reason for the 4 instead of 5 stars }Not a big issue as we were only there for a couple nights and as full-timers, we have a system down pat where our rig could stay off a sewer line for at least 7-10 days. All in all, its a nice place to come and relax, not too much to do if your a family. Clean restrooms and showers.

So far in our FT living this is one of our top 5 TT campground

Well it isn't the newest campground around. As a matter of fact, it could stand a few upgrades. But they are minor and do not take away from the breathtaking views, wildlife abound and the overall peace and serenity with staying at this campground. We stated close to the water which btw is just water and electric. If you want full hookups you will need to be a short distance away from the lake. About a 1/8 of a mile. We were lucky to be there on two beautiful winter days in Texas, days were in the low 70's and nights around 40. Prefect as the picture taking. We will no doubt be back when passing through. Oh and btw, you will have to travel up and down the Hill country of Texas to get there. It in itself is a beautiful drive.

Very well kept TT campground

The campground is well laid out. Easy access to sites, amenities and the Lake. Although its a small portion of the lake on the campgrounds side, you do have access to boat rentals,  a boat launch and plenty of parking. So if you have a boat, it will be a wonderful experience. Plus there is a beach area for families to enjoy. 

The cottages look almost brand new. The campground even has a location to wash your RV or vehicle.

Looks like a blast!

Traveling through for the night. Just a few minutes from the interstate. Spacious sites. Friendly staff. They are upgrading many things in the park like electric, location of setups, etc. Has fishing and more. This park looks like a blast to come to on holidays for the family. They already have Christmas decorations up, a train ride ready and more! No doubt a great place to bring the family. Will stop by next time through. Hope it's when festivities are going.

Perfect overnight stop for us

This is a small privately owned Campground well kept. Clean laundry bathrooms great fire pit and pleasant staff. We had stopped here three or four times over the last year or so on our way through. It's a Passport America, full hookups. Even has some goats and chickens but not bothersome. You do hear 95 off into the distance as it's an easy on and off access but it doesn't disturb you at night.

Fine for overnight

We are Thousand Trails members so the stop is free for us. We stopped here earlier this year overnight and last night election night. For an overnight stop it's fine quiet for the most part. Muffle sounds of 95 often a distance at night . Never used the pool nor inside the clubhouse, laundry, or bathrooms. As you can see by the pics I'm including as others say it is tight. Yesterday was a nice evening cool but nice no rain so it wasn't muddy. earlier this year when we were here and as other stated it did rain and yes quite a bit of water gets around your site. Last time we were here we went around the lake I guess you can call it that screen and odd looking but the walkway was clean and manageable for my wife who need a walker to help her.

A new "favorite" for us

What's better then hanging out camping on a working farm? Only downfall for us was it's was cold and we could only stay one night as we were heading south to get our car. We are full time rv'ers and needed a place to spend heading down. It is a thousand trails campground so free to us as members. We were in c103. If you love farm animals, that is the spot to be. Got a kick out of the children playing with the kids ( baby goats ) pigs, goats, chickens, horses and even lamas. Plenty to see and learn . Prefect campground for the family.

Nice, quiet overnight stop

We are full time and were passing through and saw this on map. Friendly staff. Level sites with good size sites. Didn't venture out as temps dropped fast this day. Good stop for overnight. Also seems to have many who want to stay 4-5 months in this area. Has laundry, pool( closed for winter ). Will stop back someday.

A stop we use while on 95

Full timers who come past this campground now and then. This is our 3rd time here in just over a year. Being only a couple hundred yards from 95, you do here traffic noise. Quiets down during the evenings. At the moment this time, they are not accepting Passport America like they had last two times. This is because it is under new management. Management is friendly and helpful. Campground is clean. Bathrooms and showers clean too! Would definitely recommend for an overnight stay, especially when the get the PA set up.

Great family campground

We are full timers and took our daughter, her boyfriend and our granddaughter for a weekend camping. We had fun, plenty of activities, a big lake to fish in and a pool to relax by. Nighttime family fun as well. We worth a weekend of fun for the whole family.

Pleasant few days stay

We are full timers. Stopped by and stayed here on our way out of Florida at this time. Small quaint older well organized and up-to-date campground. It's limited to its amenities a small laundromat a couple of outdoor rest rooms, mail service, horse shoes and such. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and on top of things. Daytime road noise off in the distance is very tolerable. In the evenings and overnight almost non existent. Easily making for a restful nights sleep! Will be back next time through.

Very nice, quaint TT campground no

The entrance is a bit tight and tricky. The smaller of the two are for the RVs. Most sites are as snug as the road you travel on as you menuver through the park to your site. It has many of the standard amnities like laundry, shuffle board, workout room, rec hall and more. Plus it has both indoor and outdoor pools. The people throughout the park are extremely friendly down home people. The Pond has fish, turtles, ducks and even according to the sign, alligators. You will even find a park bench that overlooks a babbling Brook. All in all, our two day stop allowed us to catch-up on laundry and such as well and get a couple nights of secure, peaceful rest even though the small hyway is about 50 yards away which becomes almost silent after 10 pm.

Very peaceful

Sadly, can't bring your dog. The "right" road is a 1 1/2 mile drive(see reservations) on for the most part, smooth limestone. 20-30-50 power and fresh water at sites. We have a 34' class A and had no issues with trees. Yes two or three spots with pot holes, but manageable. Looking to sit out and listen to mostly nature, this is a great place. There is horse stalls with plenty of trails and overnight for horses. There is even a large pavilion to use or rent for gathering with a dining hall as well. See a large smoker near the pavilion as well. Has clean bathhouses / bathrooms. Camp host and fire ranger are around all day, maintaining the grounds and answering any questions. We met a few very nice travelers to boot. A sheriff went by daily on a 4 wheeler. So security is abound. Gate code you get with your reservation for the gate at night after hours. Some sites are a challenge to level, seems the park was built some time ago and the Earth's shifting has made some uneven. The dump station (with left and right dumping) and adjacent is a dumpster located as you leave.

Nice TT campground

We did not have time to check out amedities due to visiting friends. The park is big but your close to others. The lake is nice and peaceful, with areas to sit and watch wildlife and also a dock to walk out on. Very quiet at night concidering it's close to a major highway.

Spacious sites and a lake too!

A well maintained state park. Very spacious sites. With 20 feet so between sites of vegetation, you can barely see your neighbor. Walking distance of about 10 to 15 minutes from any of the sites to the Lake. Beautiful peaceful lake. As what others have said, I can see it being a bit noisy on weekends with race track down the road. Only heard one or two cars for only a few seconds, guess testing something, but you can definitely hear it. Would recommend staying during the weekday unless your here on weekends and want to see some cool car racing! Water/electric on all sites. Has a dump station and dumpsters. Showers and bathroom clean. Will be back.
