Currently we travel for business in our '17 Winnebago Journey. Exploring different cities/towns and tourist destinations in the USA. We enjoy hiking, kayaking and biking. We recently picked up a new hobby and purchased a Rubicon Jeep for our "toad" so we can go off roading. The plan is to go full-time in summer of 2020.

If you love camping in the woods and hiking like we do, then you will love this place as much as we did. Very beautiful with the tall trees, quiet and peaceful. Located in the Sam Houston National Forest it was a great location to explore the area. The park has direct access to some hiking trails with their own little scavenger hunt. Fun for kids and adults. More hiking trails at Lake Livingston State Park and Big Scenic Recreation Area. Both within a 20 min. drive. Beautiful drives through the national forest. Staff was friendly at check-in. We didn't use much of the amenities other than the hiking trails. Park wasn't full at the time we were there in March. We camped at Rock'n E RV Park in a Motorhome.
Big Scenic Recreation Area, Lake Livingston State Park, Lake Livingston Dam, Double Lake Recreation Area, Brookshire Brothers grocery store in Coldspring, Mason Jar Restaurant in Coldspring had good burgers.

Great location to camp at while exploring the Bemidji area. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Located just off the highway, so there was some traffic noise from our campsite but perhaps not in others farther back. Clean, well kept campground. Big rig friendly with full hookups, gravel pads and trimmed trees! We stayed during 4th of July and the owners put on a very good fireworks display and also hosted a karaoke night around the community campfire. Laundry and clean showers and some groceries available too. We had no problem with WiFi service at our campsite #28 which was near the main entrance and office. We camped at Royal Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.
So much to explore in this area from biking the Paul Bunyan State Trail, hiking the two state parks nearby or fishing, boating, kayaking, or swimming the lakes nearby. And of course stop in to see Paul and Babe. A really nice upscale restaurant with a view of the lake was at Sparkling Waters. Also a great ice cream shop just across from the Paul Bunyan park.

Besides the outdated look to the place, it wasn't a bad place. It was a large property with a full sized disc golf, disc driving range, a mini-golf, v-ball, b-ball, outdoor pool and right off the paved bike trail. There were lots of things to do there and it was near a State Park. The playground was "old-school" and the mini-golf was pretty outdated but it added some character to the place along with the older buildings and vintage decor. Also a couple goats on the property that were chained up or caged. We did not visit the pool but we did use the showers in the main office building and they were fairly decent but still outdated. Our site was only E/W but they offered full hook-ups near the seasonal's and also electric and primitive sites. A band played Saturday night that was pretty good. We would stay here again just because of the location being near a State Park for hiking and biking and access to a river for kayaking. We camped at Camp Maiden Rock West in a Motorhome.
Overall decent campground besides being a bit outdated. Could trim a few trees for taller RV's coming in.
