Great state park. Lots of space between sites. No potable water. Too salty. Bring your own. 30 miles from anywhere so being what you need.
Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $25.00 (we had a TX State Park Pass, so didn't pay the $4/day use fee) RV: 25' Motorhome with tow vehicle (42' overall) I oscillated between 3 and 4 stars, and in comparison to other state parks, decided to go with a 3. For our use, this is a 3.5 start state park. If you're into boating, you will likely give it a higher rating. We stayed at Possum Kingdom SP on our way out of Dallas headed west towards Tahoe. We chose to avoid driving on Interstates, so our drive found us headed wst on 180, passing by Possum Kingdom Lake State Park. We got a late start out of Dallas, so decided to stay at the park for the night as I've always heard good things about it, but never checked it out. It is quite a long way off state highway 180 (like a half hour +). The road was dark, twisty and 2 lane...a little nerve-wracking at night...had we known how far it was, we'd have stayed elsewhere as it wasn't convenient for just an overnight stay. We arrived after hours, so drove around in our 25' Motorhome with tow vehicle and (luckily) found a spot. We needed to unhook the toad to back into our fairly level, asphalt site, which was surrounded by Bermuda grass. The park was quite full of campers, so we felt fortunate to find a premium site with full hookups...something not all state parks offer, so this was a bonus. If you require hookups or want to make sure you have a spot during peak season, it would be best to reserve ahead as this was a pretty full park. Most of the other campers were undoubtedly there for the water sports as many had boats. We had our two dogs and walked around with them before leaving and it was typical of many lakes in Texas. Perhaps there are prettier parts of this park, but we didn't really have a chance to explore it...the area we were in was pretty basic without many trees, although there were a few scattered around. Our site was treeless, but for shade, there was a covered picnic table adjacent to our site. It also had a fire ring, a bath house and dumpsters nearby...the bathrooms were pretty clean. We didn't use the showers so can't remark on those. I really don't have any real complaints, but prefer more trees. Granted...in this part of TX, that's the norm. This is a park more for people into water sports. I'd recommend it if you are there to enjoy the lake, but for an overnight stop, there might be better options since it's so far off the road and aside from the water, the scenery didn't warrant the drive. For this trip, it wasn't a great choice, but in the future, if we had more time to stick around and get in/on the water, I'd happily stay here again. The park rangers were friendly.
Very few trees and the ones they have are too small for shade. Haven't been in a couple of years because of this. Nice grounds. Not worth the drive or $$$.
