We spent a weekend camping at Fort Parker. The park is small. Although it was full for the weekend it never felt crowded. The things I liked: Lake is small and provides a nice background for early morning and late evening pictures. Many birds out in the lake feeding in the morning. There was egrets, herons, and white pelicans. Trails... 更多
Fort Parker State Park is a great Texas Park just a few miles out of Groesbeck and Mexia, in case you forget something. The park surrounds a lake so most camping sites have a view of the water. We rented a camp site with an enclosed shelter, 1 faucet, and 1 outlet. The site worked great for two couples and... 更多
Nice state park that is well maintained and secure. The biggest drawback is the very shallow lake that leaves the overall experience a bit lacking.
Stayed here Labor day weekend and it was really nice. Typical for a holiday full of dogs and kids but the campground is small so not to crazy. Hiked, biked and paddled the lake and river. Nothing bad to say about this place. I recommend it for a weekend getaway, really don't need more then 2 days to see it... 更多

Neither the man or woman greeted us. Neither stood up and... 更多
Camping over Memorial weekend, very clean and well patrolled. Great playground for the kids, and fishing for adults and kids. Activity center, documenting the building of the park by the CCC, a touchy/feely room for the kids with animal pelts, bones, feathers, etc.
This is a very nice state park. The location is great along the lake and most campsites offer some view of the lake. When we were there it was busy but it was still very peaceful. There is plenty to do in the part as well as some sights to see nearby. Enough to keep you busy for sure. The... 更多
Brought the boys here to kayak and fish. They had a wonderful time. One experience the spoke about repeatedly was entering the lake from the river. Clean, historical CCC facilities( I've been known to pack up and leave when things are dirty and unkempt).We walked to Springfield Lake, it's spring fed and the water is great for fishing as well.... 更多
A lovely spot for picnics, a family reunion, camping on lots or in the cabins, mobile hookups, or just enjoying a walk. One of my favorite places.
