Campground Review from Robert

I live about 30 minutes from this campground, and I RV camped there in August 2007.

Describe your camping trip:

The campsites are big and have lots of trees, and it's very peaceful at night. I go there as often as possible.
Pros: Being a state park, I can fish for free off the bank or from the fishing pier. You can rent a canoe or kayak. There is a small store where you can buy firewood. You can even rent a bike for two.

Cons: As of this writing, there are a few sites that are closed due to all the rain we had a few months back.
Nearby attractions: Texas Motor Speedway is about 40 minutes south, and the Red River and Oklahoma are about 45 minutes to the north.

Further comments:

It's a beautiful park with a big lake, but you don't have the boat traffic like a lot of lakes. They have a nice beach area and lots of picnic spots. I have seen deer, raccoons, squirrels and armadillos along with all types of birds.

Nice but never again, Member BBHaLe3

We recently spent the weekend at the Wild Plum Campground. While it was a very nice area... free from litter and such... it did only hold one bathroom... which was kept clean most of the time. I wish we would have been warned about the hike to the campsite... we would have thought twice... especially after making trips to the parking lot to unload. I might add the parking lot did not have enough spots to accomodate all the vehicles so some of us had to park down by the boat dock.. which was another hike... UPHILL! Our campsite was most definitely the Best! Beautiful view of the lake...however... it was at least a 1/4 mile hike... one way and it took us 3 trips!!! Needless to say we slept good from all the exercise.. and those obnoxiously loud boy scouts finally did settle down. The swimming beach was beautiful... and the lady at the Park Store... Bobbi.. was the friendliest person in the whole park. We enjoyed the sunsets most of all... but as much hiking as we had to do in 3 days.. we will be sore for days to come. Dont think we will go there in the futur.e.. getting too old or out of shape..
