So we arrive at the campground and are greeted by the host. According to the host they work as volunteers over the winter so they can avoid moving and the Army Corps of Engineers makes a special exception for them and therefore they can accept no money, no cards, not even cash. You can only camp here if you have a reservation made in advance on the computer system or by telephone with the extra $10 reservation fee. You absolutely cannot pay by cash. We were advised by a frantic host to drive into the campground, pick two sites we liked, and then telephone the reservation system and hope one is available. It took over half an hour waiting on the telephone to get this taken care of and while waiting we were told over and over again in the recording that it was easier to do it on line. That's all well and good except we checked on line while we had internet and we saw nothing about how you must have advance reservations for this particular campsite because the campground hosts are all volunteer and without their volunteering and doing everything for free when union people would be paid so much mare....and so on and so on for as long as you care to listen to the host.... Anyway, after that very bad start, we did finally get into a space. The place is kind of run down with rusted metal bars marking the campsites and many of the sites are sloped and uneven and there are potholes everywhere. Plus many of the sites were really short. We did find a reasonably level one looking out onto the lake but the whole thing left a very bad taste in our mouths. This was doubly so because all our other Army Corps of Engineer stays have been so positive. We camped at Rayburn Park (COE) in a Travel Trailer.

Make reservations and pay in advance during winter. Campground hosts cannot accept anything even an exact cash payment and will talk your ear off about their conditions while explaining it.

Very pretty park, almost all sites on the lake. Great views. No gate attendant on duty here but there is a camp host in the camping loop. That host was great, helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Sites are well spaced and allow for relaxing. Water pressure was good and electric was steady. Camping loop is kept very clean by the camp loop hosts. Our only complaint about the park was the gate attendants dogs (about 5 of them) are allowed to run free without leash or attending. We did not appreciate being accosted in our camp by this little "pack" and barked at until we chased them out. We were told by the hosts that this was pretty normal and they did try to apologize for it. We didn't appreciate either nearly being run down by the gate attendant's grandson in his corvette as he chased a "violator" on a 4 wheeler in the camping loop. He later apologized to us, but it left a sour note with us as usually ACE parks have great professionalism in their staff. We saw no ACE staff during the week we spent at this park, but as mentioned, the camp hosts keep it beautiful. We would probably stay here again if in the area. Bring your supplies, other than another campground store about 5 miles away, there is nothing out here. We camped at Rayburn Park (COE) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring what you need. There is another campground about 5 miles away with a little store and laundry. There is a restaurant there too. The space shuttle Columbia memorial museum in Hemphill is worth a visit as is the Jail House Museum there.
