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 ISN'T A PASSPORT AMERICA ANY MORE! Nice people, but who ever designed this park has never RV'ed or went to another RV park to see how you design one. Yet there aren't any RV parks in the Longview area you'd call primo or just nice. The sites are small as far as I'm concerned they don't have many real long sites. Sites are gravel and RV is pavement. Utilities aren't we placed. Power worked great but very low to the ground and is hard to plug in. Sewer is back father on the site and up hill and the part end of hose fits in is higher. I don't understand why they did that I'll include a picture. All there utilities work very well and I commend them for that. Wifi is slow but most park are. I might come back if passing thru. You're 8 miles or less from super Wal-mart, Target, Lowe's and lots of restaurants This is the prime location. Anything and everything is around here on loop 281. Jucy's Tacos on the loop 281 and Judson road and Jucy's Hamburgs is on hwy 259 south or the loop also one on hwy 80 two different places great food. I was here visiting family. - JustDon

This is an easy location to get to. Very friendly staff. The park is out in the open with out trees. There are a few covered sites. We had a pull through on asphalt. The park sites are spacious. There is a dog run but I was very disappointed that visitors had not cleaned up after their pets even though there were bags and trash receptacle. I even walked my dog on another grassy area that was littered with poop! - oniedu

Passport America, Good Sam. Fairly new park. Very nice asphalt slabs w/very good gravel roads. No grass or trees in park. Free WIFI works well. Apx. 6 covered sites. Easy access, friendly host. My only caution would be the utility hookups. They are at extreme rear of the site. A long sewer hose plus an extension will be needed, especially for a motorhome. The sewer connection is also rather high above the ground making dumping difficult for motorhomes. Water & electric connections are very close to the ground (perhaps 4 inches) ...connecting is a little more difficult than normal because of being so close to the ground. - AFChap

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

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

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

A quiet spot on a beautiful lake. The staff members were very friendly and helpful. Full hook ups. gravel pull through site was level with easy access. We called ahead and received specific access and parking instructions. Enjoyed our one night stay and would use this park again. - Cancamper

Very nice park on a beautiful lake. Excellent wifi, cable available. Water, electric and sewer no problems. Fishing off the boat docks. Very peaceful place with tall trees and teeming with squirrels. Thursday nights they have a bonfire, bring a couple of brews and meet your neighbors. The owners are very hospitable friendly folks. One of the best parks we've stayed in a year of full timing. A great place to stay for a relaxed, low stress stay. - Oltrucker

We stayed in this beautiful RV campground in a 5th wheel for one week and will definitely come back. Numerous sites by the lake and even large pull thorough sites, all accommodating full hookups. Daily walks to the boathouse, piers, and the awesome nightly campfires make this campground a must see. Truly a best kept secret in eastern Texas. - Don & Dona

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

Lake Hawkins RV Park is operated by Wood County and located near Hawkins, Texas. It is 15 miles north of Tyler State Park.
The park has 41 spacious RV sites and tent sites. The park has a huge sand beach swimming area. The lake is very clear. The RV sites are 50/30/20A electric and water. They have 4 full hookup sites. The park encourages draining grey water at the campsites. Rates are $20/night. Reservations advised for Friday and Saturday nights.
We were in site 4 and will return. - drfife

This is a beautiful park with lots of trees, with open space below. The sites are spaced fairly close together, but no problem with interference with the slides. The only problem we had were May Flies which work their way around your screens. We had at least a hundred inside before we closed our windows and used the air conditioner. It would be a great park in the fall. Would definitely stay here again. - estegw

Nice campground with old pine trees. Very nice roads, however please make sure to grab a map of the campground if this is your first time! The site numbers within the 2 RV loops are not marked on the road and sites are spread among 2 RV loops. We stayed in loop2 and the road to get to our site 222 looked like a driveway, so we missed it the first time. A couple of wooden signs would help. Other than that, it is quiet and well taken care of. - chantalcnrobw

Rate reflects Senior Pass. Very pretty park on shore of Lake O The Pines. Part of a complex of several COE parks. Gate attendants are very nice, helpful and knowledgeable about both the park and area. We were in Area 2 which is nice, sites away from the water are more spacious. Power voltage was very high and we had problems with shut offs. Our EMS showed up to 130 volts at times. The park staff came and check the line and felt the problem was from the local electric company.
We ended up moving to the other area, Area 1 which is newer and had steady 124v power. Water pressure was about 65PSI. Sites in this loops are level and spacious: all with very nice lake views. Only issue with Area 1 is that is it right next to their "group camp" and we were unfortunate enough to have a wedding taking place the weekend we were here. So loud music and traffic into the early hours. We might stay here again, but would ensure nothing is happening at that group camp area. - Fixn2gocamp

Arrival: You have to travel 18 miles south to get there but it just may be worth it
Roads: Excellent all the way coming and going. Except... we called the site owner in advance and she told us not to follow the GPS. So true. Drive in to Pittsburg and then approach from the south. I drove the GPS road in my TOAD and thought I was going to die!
Sites: Excellent. Plenty of space and well maintained. Full hookups. DISH by every site... but you have to pay huge to get it running.
Cost: $32.50. Website says there are discounts -- none. Park owner's excuse is that she can't update the site.
Local Area: Rural. You have to drive back to Mt Pleasant to get anything you really need.
Internet: Advertized free internet -- false. Limited cell phone reception. Clear views of all skies and/or plug into DISH.
Other: One dumpster at the end of the park. Inconvenient. Many excuses for not delivering on advertised amenities. We will not stay there again. - JC Penny

Nice quiet park about 2 miles from Lake Bob Sandlin. I was on the only cement pad in the park on Site 17. Electricity, water and sewer connections are at the back of the site. Be careful pulling into sites because of this. Roads are gravel in the park and a little narrow. Sites are kind of close together but not on top of each other. Verizon service is 3 bars sometimes, but mostly 2 bars or less. Wi-Fi was not working during my stay, they said it was "hung up". Owners are very friendly. They are improving amenities in the park continuously. There are picnic tables in a pavilion in the park and they have just completed a nice large pet park. Area is still a little muddy when it rains, but they are working on landscaping in the park. Entrance drive to the park is a little obscured by some trees and it narrow. I would stay here again. - Paul_L63

We were transferred to Pittsburg with my husband's job. The owner was very friendly. The spaces were tight, but very long pull thrus, allowing ample parking for both our vehicles. There were small shade trees. The park was located in a very beautiful, hilly area, making the drive a very pleasant one. The Laundry room was very nice and the shower house was clean and nice as well. The park was fairly new and immaculate. We were there only 5 months and would definitely stay there again. - Sharon Henderson
