...it was the only thing available for spring break camping in the area, so it was a good find. There is free firewood near the park entrance and the rangers seem friendly. It was not crowded at all. Fires are allowed only in fire rings and barbecue grills. We did not use the baths/showers. There is a playground in the... More

We stayed for a couple nights while in route to Arizona for an extended stay. There were only a couple campers in the entire park so it was pretty quiet. There is a hiking trail along the lake, not a mile long but a nice walk. The prettiest camp spots are down by the cabin rentals they have but they... More

The lake itself is not all that beautiful. It has a hydroelectric plan right on the lake. However, the employees are super nice, and the facility itself is nicely kept. Our campsite has water and the bathroom was kept warm on cold days. Most of the campground we looked at has a burn ban, but this park still allows us... More

We stopped at this park as we camped across Texas. Really enjoyed the fact that it was out of the way and secluded. We stayed at an electric site at the back end of the park and had the place to ourselves. Very quiet and enjoyable. The town of Colorado City is small with a lot of charm - there... More

We needed a place to stay along I-20 from North Texas to New Mexico and this was a very nice place to stay. October is the off season and the park was very quiet, we got a spot right on the lake. There is considerable cactus and brush along the edge, so you don't wander down to the lake but... More

We took our toddlers here twice. I would not pay for a day pass. It is really only worth it if you want to camp as there wasn't that much to too or see. There was a burn ban, but most people were hacking off pieces of trees and burning anyways, which I found disappointing. But there was a lot... More

We spent one night here on our way out of Texas. On a Tuesday, we had the whole park to ourselves. There are no trees for shade but the picnic tables are covered. The sites are level and you have an open sky for satellite. The fun thing about this park is the amount of wildlife. We had quail and... More

Just as most Texas state parks, it is well maintained. The campsites were nice and large. It is in near west Texas, so tress and shade is a little sparse. Campsites are not near the lake, but some have a "view". I dinged one star due to location - in the middle of nowhere. We were just passing thru on... More

At 4 bucks a person we were going to drive through to check it out, but with 4 people we weren't going to spend 16 bucks just to drive through and look around while we were killing time one day... sorry, but that isn't happening.

I have stayed twice at the park, only in the Cabin area. On both visits, our family was the only one staying in a cabin, and I could count the number of other visitors (in the camping area) that I saw on one hand. Very isolated feeling, but that is something I like about it. Beautiful skies at night. The... More
