This park is in need of some repairs. The pools are quite nice and kept very clean. We didn't use the restrooms located within the campground, but the ones near the pools were top notch and very clean! There are few 50 Amp FHU site available to transient traffic. There are several more that are "black bagged" (read: not available for use) in need of repair. The staff was helpful when needed, but I didn't really see them out and about or socializing at any time during our stay. We would likely stay here again, as is is close to family in the area. I wish they would work out a deal with the Corps of Engineers so that you could actually SEE and get to the lake easily. Not a whole lot to do around here. - TxDorsey1975

This is a large campground with many camp sites. There are a few 50 amp sites, but they are limited in number with many sold to annuals. When we arrived on an April Monday there were still three 50 amp sites available to us so we picked the one we liked best and settled in. There are three camping loops: A, B, and D (loop C isn't open to the public). Loop D is closest to the campground entrance. While most of the campsites are full hookup, 30 amp sites you want to know that there are water-electric only sites scattered around the campground. You'll want to keep the campground map before you as you pick your site. Loop A, which is the farthest in from the entrance (over a mile) has a row of pull through sites. Again, keep an eye on your campground map as some don't have a sewer hookup. We had a nice 50 amp back-in site. While we weren't alone, there were many vacant spots all around us, making for a quiet, enjoyable stay. We were also an easy walking distance to the Adult Lodge. (I'll mention that the road by Loop A is bordered by a golf course and once we came within just a few feet of being hit by a golf ball.) Neither of the pools were open yet but we checked out the game room, workout room, and lodge. A bit farther is the parking lot for those wanting to hike the trail taking them off the Thousand Trails property down to Lake Whitney. Really, there's not much reason to come to Lake Whitney Thousand Trails to enjoy Lake Whitney. The only real negative to Lake Whitney Thousand Trails is the roads. Honestly, they are really bad. The mile in from the highway to Loop A gets worse the farther you get into the campground. While we liked the campground and enjoyed the campsite we certainly didn't like bringing our camper in over the pothole filled road. If I were rating this campground based on campsites and amenities, I think I would give it an eight. However, if you factor in the roads that rating drops down to maybe a six. - nazpaz

Rate reflects 50 amp charge for thousand trail membership. Few 50 amp sites and some did not have sewer. Lots of sites covered with black plastic bags having electric problems but they were working on some sites. Roads in bad condition and many sites weren't level. Spread out with over a mile between office and children pool and the adult center and pool. Buildings old but clean. Park had lots of activities over spring break and a restaurant on site. Lots of trees for shade and two pools probably a nice place in the summer. Many trees and some sites hard to get into because of all the trees. Our fault but lost our awning to one tree. Watch out for the trees. We would come back to this park. - fulltimehusker

This campground was in serious disrepair and dirty. There was debris all over the campground. After moving from a site that was very unlevel, the substituted site had electrical connections on one of two that had burn marks around the connection. The restroom/shower was fairly clean but barely maintained.
Called the facility 2 hours before arrival to see if there was a site available, had to leave a message and no response. Did not acknowledge receiving our message after our arrival, either.
Glad it was a one night stay AND we had an appointment which kept us from having to be at the park longer than we were. There was dog excrement EVERYWHERE. A seriously damaged 5th wheel was in the park with tarp covers and broken windows and still with someone living in it. Unacceptable. - On_the_Road_Again-2

We just bought our first new camper, so this was the first time we had ever stayed at an RV Park. We needed lots of help setting up our camper and getting connected to utilities. The staff was so helpful and friendly. They escorted us to our site and spent 30 minutes helping us get set up. Our site had nice shade and we were close to the fenced dog walk. The restrooms and showers were very clean, and the swimming pool had a nice shaded deck where we could sit and watch our kids swim. We will definitely stay here again. - MaggieMason

First RV park stay ever, so nothing to compare it to. We stayed one night with our 32' 5th wheel on the way home from the dealership picking it up. We got a pull-thru site way in the back, I think site G. Very easy in and out of the site & plenty of room to have truck parked in front of trailer. Utilities worked fine. We did not have a picnic table. The site was a bit un-level. The park is basically between 1-35 and a train track. At night, I think we heard the train more than the 1-35 traffic noise. There is a playground that is in acceptable condition. Check-in was easy (we had a reservation) and we followed the attendant to our spot - he asked if we needed any more help, but we declined. Women's bathrooms looked freshly painted (with wildflowers), but not updated. - 5th Wheel Family

Stayed for 3 nights in February. Full Hookups, good water pressure, consistent electric. As others have said, the WiFi is not that good.
Cons: Spaces are fairly tight. Gravel sites, not quite level. I-35 highway noise (although it was too cold to have the windows open to hear it).
Pros: Easy access off interstate. Pull through sites in front of park. Very friendly and helpful staff. Dog park and nearby dog wash area! Little golf area and a catch & release fishing on site. The cutest herd of goats in the back area with tons of brand new babies this week! Free breakfast cooked to order with coffee, milk and juice! They are building covered seasonal parking in the very back of the property....weekend campers don’t go that far back.. Close enough to Waco to explore!
We would stay here again. - CorgiGirl

A decent RV park right off I-35 and just a few miles from downtown Waco. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel. There were a lot of long term residents staying at this park. The park has a lot of outdoor amenities, but we did not spend any time with them as the weather did not cooperate. They have a swimming pool, fitness room, fishing pond, cafe on site and a very small bathroom for the short term guests. The park advertises strong wifi, but expect it to be on the slow side. This park is in a convenient location when visiting the sights in the Waco area and we would have no concerns staying here again. The park is reasonably priced for the location and amenities. - Gary Gilliam

Stayed 6 nights in this park. This is a very popular park so reservations are recommended. The sites are all very long and can handle any size RV. The lot was not level and took time to get my RV level. Wi-Fi - Excellent signal T-Mobile - 3 of 4 bars. Electric - no issues Water - no issues Sewer - no issues Satellite - no issues. - Peter G

Park lives up to its claim as a working man's park. Lots of full time but quiet all the same. The manager is special. Great guy. Restrooms were clean but the rustic wood interior can't keep them clean long term. We would stay there again for a one night travel through. - mojomoho

We had a fantastic site which fit our 45' Cornerstone. It was a back in site but plenty of room to unhook the toad and all. Big rig friendly! Yes it is a little noisy from the interstate, however the ease of access to Magnolia Market Place is great! The owner is eccentric in his own way... I would call him a Texas Good Ol Boy! I see others felt he was inappropriate in comments. We did not experience this, and he made us feel comfortable and welcome. - w0gen

Things that can't be helped: horrendous road noise from I-35 125 yards behind our site. Horrible water pressure 35 psi at best. Things that NEVER EVER should have happened: After checking in and getting parked, I am told a crew will be coming to cut a channel in the concrete for drainage. Site should not have been rented. After being told there was cable TV, there wasn't because the cable was cut and not repaired. And the last straw was when I mentioned the low water pressure, the owner/operator/ manager literally blew up in my face to the point I thought it would get violent. Every inquiry about anything there was met with a lecture that eventually criticized me or my coach and how I knew nothing. I would never, ever stay here again if it was free for life! We shortened our stay and left early. Better bring a sewer "donut". No threaded connection. - DMcKitt

Don't know about summer campers, but in November we were disappointed, to say the least. We had come thru Waco when heading west, so came back thru heading east. COE park was not available. Chose this park because it was on the river and sounded nice. Everything was very rundown. The "clubhouse" was locked. I went into the shower house and was glad I didn't have to use it. Unlike other parks, where we have stayed a week, there were no newcomers and no one leaving. Most are workers, etc, full time on a month to month lease. The residents seem to have a understanding with the owner to park in multiple places, have dog pens, etc. I say it is satisfactory, because the site was plenty big for our 40 ft 5th wheel and truck. It is easy in and out, and all utilities worked fine. We knew it was 12 miles out of town, and if all other things had been as advertised, it would have been good. The property is huge and could be a gorgeous place, if someone wanted to invest the time and money. As it is now, we would not go back. - JudynJoe

Nice RV Park with lake view sites, also has numerous tent sites, fishing dock, boat ramp, picnic tables, BBQ Grill and city park with cover and playground. Boating and fishing permitted. Has gravel road leading from paved State Highway 31. - Glenn Cannon

As with most COE parks - this place is a fantastic water themed vacation area. The roads are all paved and easy to navigate. Nearly all the sites have some trees so shade from the hot sun is generally available. The only downside is trying to get to this place. If you are not a local - you will likely have great difficulty in finding it. The address (Skeet Eason Rd) is actually an access road around the airport. There is no signage telling you that you need to go further to get to the actual park entrance - and even then, the sign is not very big or visible. Granted, this is not that big a deal in a car - except if you have a 40ft Rv and are towing. There is no place to turn around. But once you finally get here - you will likely love the setting. - rv time

We stayed here while visiting Magnolia Farms. It was just enough out of town to be very peaceful. The staff was very friendly at check in. The park was very clean and well organized. We used our National Parks pass to get a 50% discount for 3 nights. This is a great place to stay while visiting Waco and the sites are spacious with trees and a covered picnic table. - Bakersfish

We stayed on a waterfront site which was amazing. The only downside of the campground was in our loop, the bathhouse was in bad shape. There was no running water and flies galore! Another bath house further down, appeared to be pretty clean but not great. We had a non sewer site, but managed it well over 4 nights there. The sunsets on the lake were awesome! - steveNdonna

This COE campground is not very well maintained. It appears to need a good mowing with tall grass/weeds growing throughout the park. Even the playground area was in dire need of mowing. The sites which are gravel and grass are fairly spacious but a lot of them are uneven. Our campsite 67, beside the lake along with 5 others, were in a fenced area which was a bit mysterious. In looking at the other sites in this area, ours appeared to be the most level with a nice big tree which offered some shade There is no swimming beach as of this review although the day use area close to the park entrance was under construction so would assume there will be a beach in the future. Lots of nature watching here with white egrets making a nightly journey to bird island just up the lake from the campground, cranes, turtles and deer running through the park. We were invaded by ants in our motor home, something that we have never experienced. While the maintenance was disappointing, we did enjoy our site by the lake watching the egrets and the beautiful sunsets. Not sure we would return. - Budmobile
