After 6 weeks in West Texas, we were so happy to see real trees! Our site (17) faced woods, not another site so it was very nice and there was even a little bit of fall color. The other reviews are accurate so I will just comment on the gray water situation. I wasn't sure about draining our gray tank at the site but it was not a problem at all. There was a shallow "ravine" and the soil is very sandy so the water just percolates away. I thought my dogs would be in it but they didn't even seem to notice it. Overall, this is a great choice for the area. The famous rose garden in Tyler was still blooming in early November despite the cold snap. - janci

Terrific county-run park on lovely lake. Sites are all pretty level, fairly spacious, and big-rig friendly. They are asphalt with a concrete pad at the end. Tables are on concrete pads. Most sites have good shade, a few are located more in the sunshine, so be sure to check on that if that is important to you. Campground road easy to navigate. Good OTA TV signal. Verizon signal just OK, but I was at the bottom of a hill so it may be better at higher sites. In any case, I was able to get decent internet using my phone as a hotspot rather than the jetpack, so all was good. My one suggestion is that they put some $$ into updating the restrooms. - aowcarol

NIce well maintained park with level sites/concrete slabs, very quiet with lots of room between neighbors, pet friendly with lots of green grass, in a clean country setting. The park owner & all employees are some of the nicest folks we have had the pleasure of meeting. We'll be back!!! - chiefbowen

We have been staying in this park for 3 months while traveling with my husbands job. Park is super clean and very quiet. Owner is located on site and is always a phone call away. He tries very hard to make sure campers are happy. Well lit up at night also. They have 3 fishing ponds for those wanting to fish. There is a swimming pool that is open during the summer months that is very nice. They have a huge camp house that allows campers to watch big screen tv or play pool or just hang out. He has recently had wifi repaired and i can actually say it is probably the best wifi we have found while traveling. He has 2 different types of spots. Regular and deluxe. We stayed in a delux spot which has concrete pad and also a carport to park your vehicle under. There is a storage building also that we put our deep freeze in. The lot has 2 electric meters and also 2 water hookups. There is a picnic table at all spots. Their regular spots also have a concrete pad to park on. They are also nice because they usually have more shade than the deluxe spots. Monthly rates were regular $270 plus electric and deluxe was $370 plus electric. It's a very nice park and one would have to decide wether they need the extra carport and shed the deluxe spot offers. I personally found it very useful having the carport due to the amount of rain we received and being able to still grill underneath it. I would highly recommend staying at Watts RV park in Gilmer Texas. - soney40

We are on our 2nd month stay here and our daily rate is based on that. This park nestled in rural East TX, has grown over the years and is always being improved on. It is about a mile off Hwy 155 and the road to the park has been repaved by the city. The park roads are gravel and whilst maintained, can be dusty and bumpy in areas. The sites, some hilly, have flat concrete pads with water, electric 30/50 and sewer hookups. There are shady and open spots to chose from. Some have a covered patio and shed near their pad. The free wifi serves our needs for now. No problem with Verizon cell phone coverage.
There are 3 ponds, one under reconstruction due to a leak and will be restocked later. There is a nice pool and a great clubhouse that has a kitchen, bathrooms with showers, library room, pool tables and comfy couches to watch the big screen TV. There is also an event center that can be booked for parties and gatherings.
The grounds have picnic shelters with grill pits. It is a lovely little park with piney trees, well mowed grass areas and quiet and peaceful. Everyone is friendly and helpful and it makes for a comfortable stay as we have to be here d/t a family illness. - TheWetzels

This is the second year we have taken grandchildren for 4 nights. There is lots for them to do: miniature golf, fishing, tennis, basketball, shuffleboard, horseshoes, swimming, hay rides, laser tag etc. During the summer if you go during the week it is quieter and there is a free daily activity for the children: tie dye on Monday, gem mining on Tuesday, ceramic painting on Wednesday, and Laser Tag on Thursday. This year they have added a wonderful splash park to the family pool area. The $55 per night is just for the site. On top of that is a $5 per person/night charge and that includes adults and children. So our actual nightly cost was $80. A little pricey, but the grandchildren look forward to this outing with the grandparents. - SoonerMom

I stay there once a year. They have been improving the park every year! Adult swimming pool, separate from the children's. Crafts for adults and children. Nice covered eating areas and individual sites that are more private! Basketball, putt-putt, volleyball, and a bounce pillow. Yes, they are geared to children but an adult can enjoy their park also! Also have golf carts for rent and cabins. I love it there. - Gypsy Nana

Made reservations prior and arrived Sunday. Office was closed and no envelope for us. The camp host did not know we were arriving. A poor start but found the park satisfactory.
A cleaning lady made us feel welcome, contacted the park host, and overall did a great job helping us.
Park was clean, sites have concrete pads, grass between sites. All utilities worked well.
We found a constant noise from a motor running on the property close by. Not extremely loud but consistent.
Overall a good place for an overnight. - RDRV

Nice park, large level gravel pull-throughs. Individual bath/showers, very clean. Note that they no longer except PPA. Slightly disappointed because it was one of the reasons I chose the park. - SnowBird 5050

We arrived on a rainy, stormy evening and were greeted with a warm welcome from the office staff. We were given plenty of information on local places of interest. Our site was a level concrete pad that was much appreciated during the huge downpour. The amenities were absolutely first class and we really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were super friendly and we take away some lovely memories of a great night of music. - KenandCathy

We intended to stay here one night as we just needed a place to sleep before traveling onto next stop. However due to rain, we stayed 3 nites. The park manager was exceptionally friendly & accommodating. This is a small, quiet park, very adequate. I imagine during warmer weather, the park is very pretty. - LoveMaui

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Lions RV Park. We Love the park and the people. It is like home away from. The owners and the management are some of the nicest people we know. The Park is beautiful and the fishing is GREAT!!! Clean restrooms and showers and very large laundry area is a bonus. Management will go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. Campers and residents alike will make you feel like you have known them forever. When you leave you will miss them all and look forward to your return trip. Believe me, you will want to go back over and over. - Kimberly Williams

Stayed here two years ago and loved it. This time totally different experience.almost all slots occupied by full timers. Our assigned space had 4 inches clearance to a sign on the back side to our extended slide out the front had less than 2 ft. From bottom step to a unprotected retaining wall with a one foot drop to a sea of mud. Very dangerous. No grass. Dogs run loose. Our dog was attacked twice during our three day stay, once by dogs belonging to, I was told, was an owner. Expressed our dislike for our space and was told to go somewhere else. During Spring break week, not possible. Looked for the restroom and couldn't find one. Our view from the front door was the side of the office I will never stay here again. - usedtobe

We camped in the Big Pine campground for two nights with advanced reservations made 257 days prior to arrival. Check-in at Visitors' Center was quick. Firewood for sale (honor system $5 for 8 pieces) near Big Pine restroom/shower house. Big Pine women's restroom was in deplorable condition! Toilets clogged and overflowing. Definitely a health and safety issue and was shocked that Park rangers didn't lock out the public! One of the three stalls was without a door. Was forced to drive to the day use area to use restroom. Non-gender showers were on the opposite side of the restrooms. Lockable, individual shower rooms. Clean. Big Pine drive-thru campsites are very close to campground road. We were warned that park raccoons were aggressively friendly, which was an understatement. When hubby pulled a storage bin from our truck, two raccoons appeared in the middle of the afternoon next to the bin. We can surmise they thought the storage bin was a cooler and they were about to get some grub. We had to shoo them away over and over again. Quiet park - no road noise. It was the weekend prior to Halloween, so each campsite had an option to participate in the campground trick or treat activity. Heavily wooded park. Very nicely stocked Park store where canoes, paddle boats and kayaks can be rented (life jackets provided at no cost). Achieved 2 bars with AT&T cell service. - napunani

A clean and well maintained park. We camped in the Big Pine area on FHU Site 65. Site had a slight slope but easy to compensate. Plenty of room with BBQ and picnic table. Very pretty park with lovely shady trees and lovely trails. Many activities to suit everyones needs. Unfortunately we had a full day of rain that kept us from doing things however we would stay here again and highly recommend. - OzFrosty

A new reasonable rated park. Great rates best locally. Your close to everything in Gladewater. pizza hut is a mile away, Brookshire's Grocery Market is too, also Ace Hardware, some Dollar stores in town, lots of Antique stores down town Gladewater. Lots of restaurants in town. Kilgore oil museum. This is located in between Longview and Tyler great home base for exploring East Texas. - JustDon

Nice park with concrete pads, good room between sites, and solid utilities. The road to exit the park is a bit tight. Wifi was decent. The only dings are that the sites are a bit unlevel front to rear. Why go to the trouble and expense of pouring concrete and not making it level. The front tires on our 40' coach were barely touching the ground when we got level and I saw several others the same way. Nice long sites with good parking. Another ding was the bugs and spiders in the pedestal. How much does it take to wipe things down occasionally? Little things make an impression. Having said all that, it is a nice park and we would stay again. - Pjoe

The park is made up of all concrete pads and roads and is convenient to Longview or Tyler. Staff was very nice and the park was clean and pretty well kept. Most sites are not level, but not a major problem. On the other hand, the exit could be a problem for longer, lower rigs. We will stay here again. - mfcros

We have family near by and have stayed several places and Shallow Creek is by far the nicest in the area. Like the extra pavement with each site, makes it easy to park our dually. We travel fulltime and this pool is the nicest we've seen ... great design, placement, details and construction. If we had a home this is the pool we would want ! And the staff is helpful and friendly. We have already made our fall reservations ! - 5050

I lived in this park for about six months and I am very glad I moved to a different park (Shallow Creek RV Resort in Gladewater, TX). This was basically privately owned land that the owner had put many RV sites on. It was not well kept, had all dirt roads that were VERY bumpy, and some of the residents were very loud. I used the laundry facilities once and never did again because my clothes stunk after they were done. They were very nasty facilities. The trees are pine trees and dripped all over my trailer. I am still working on cleaning up the mess. The owner is very strange and has a lot of rules that no one seems to follow anyway. The sites are not paved in any way. I would not recommend staying at this park. Instead, try Shallow Creek RV Resort in Gladewater, TX. - A.J Meals

This is a nicely wooded park for a get away or big lots for a home. Rates are reasonable with a nice family atmosphere. Pets are allowed so we were able to bring our pets and they loved it. Need to stop by when you are in the area. We will go back. - D44-rock
