The sites in the older part of the camp are close with several back to back which can be great if traveling with a buddy. The sites in the newer part of the camp are paved, level, and very nice. We used this as just a stop-over but will certainly keep it on our radar whenever passing through.

The staff could not have been more friendly. If you have the America the Beautiful pass they give $3.00 off the regular $15.00 price. We camped at Elliot Lake Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

We were in only for one night and didn't unhitch. Out site was level enough to accommodate that, but many others would have required unhitching due to the slope. The new section, the first loop to the left, is where we were and is excellent. The older loops are poorly planned with pull-through accommodating two campers each and utilities split on each side.

Don't use your GPS to get here. It may take you to a closed gate. Follow directions on the website. I got asked if I had a weapon or ammo by the main gate guard. Be prepared for that if you carry. The lake is beautiful. We camped at Elliot Lake Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed for 3 nights at this hidden gem in the Northeast corner of Texas. The campground is located way back into the base away from the noise and traffic of this busy Army depot. It is quiet and shady with tall pines and flowering dogwood trees. We enjoyed hearing the forest songbirds after 2 months in Southern Texas.

The 50 amp sites are paved with blacktop but not level as the park is very hilly. 30 amp sites are gravel. There is a lovely dam created lake for fishing and swimming. There was plenty of space for walking and bike riding. There is a very nice playground. Kayaks, sail boats and canoes can be rented. The camp store is very small. Laundry facilities are limited and the dryers did not work very well. They said Wi-Fi was available but we never could connect. We camped at Elliot Lake Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Close to Texarkana. Drive State Line Avenue where you are in Arkansas driving north and Texas driving south. The Courthouse/Post Office is built right on the line and has photo op where you can take your picture under the Texarkana sign with one foot in each state.

We also enjoyed the Ace of Clubs House, the Museum of Regional History, the Civil War monument to Confederate mothers, and Union Station. There is a great little coffee shop/confectioner in town called Taste and See.
