We have stayed here several times now. The only thing that we dislike is the gate being locked but it is also a good thing. We enjoy the lake activities. most of the sites our level and good. they bathhouses have always been in good shape. I wished the playground was more centrally located for the kids as we had to ride bikes or walk a long ways to get to it. there is always deer in the park. I think the Army Corps of Engineers does very well with their campgrounds. No firearms even for permit carriers is something else I'm not pleased with.
We had a wonderful stay here, check in was easy and painless. Remember COE campgrounds lock the gates at 10PM-7AM but there is parking across the street of entrance if you visitors that will be leaving later. We stayed in a travel trailer and had no problems getting in or out. The sites are well marked, paved, level and easy to back in (like ours) or pull thru. Lots of boats, jetskis, kayaks on the lake this time of year and our site was about 15 ft above the lake with a great view. There is a major rail line on the west side of the lake here.. We loved the train sounds and if you have your AC running you probably won't notice it. $30 a night for premium sites (waterfront) Water and Electric (30 and 50 amp) only, no sewer. Dump station was easy to enter & exit near the entrance. Bathrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. Sites have nice gravel spots for tents, concrete picnic tables and charcoal grills. When you turn from Glade Rd onto Kings Camp Rd there are two gas stations and a Family Dollar with lots of camper related supplies at this intersection. If it is open, try the fruit stand next to Family Dollar for some great local tomatoes and peaches.
One year we camped three times here. We love Mckinney. Quiet....clean and a fun place to relax. We always see deer when we come here. We've camped in a pop up and TT. Highly recommend this CG.
