Lake Whitney is the best lake in Texas! There are so many places to explore. McCown valley park is a nice, safe place to walk. Facilities are clean and in good order. Boat dock kept up well. Friendly gate attendants. Nice to see the wildlife too

Very comparable to Whitney state park so use the park that is closest to you. The boat ramp was closed due to low water level when we were there so we just hung out at the beach, swam and had a picnic lunch. Buy an annual pass if you plan on visiting multiple times. Very clean and week maintained park.

Quiet and relaxing as usual. Birds, deer, bunnies and squirrels all around. Perfect place to get away from the city and take any pressure off your mind.

a wonderful place to go and just walk around and enjoy the peace and quiet that you don't get in the city...if one can just sit still, and there aren't an abundance of people making noise you can see the deer, squirrels, and an occasional bunny or two....in the quietest of times you can hear the birds singing..... it offers...

We went camping this weekend and visited McCown Park for the first time. What a great park! The pull through RV sites were welcome. Spacious sites, covered picnic tables, not crowded at all. The bathroom closest to us (we were in site #24) had no hot water though. We brought our bikes and rode through the park- great way to... More

Another week of perfection. If only every week could be like this. Clear skies at night while sitting out and talking with the family. Away from the city. Quiet. This is the place to be.

This is an exceptional value for all that you get! Serene countryside, play grounds, horse trails. Swim beaches are sand and well taken care of. Wildlife, such as deer, squirrels , birds are very abundant. Deer come as close as 20 feet away, lovely site to watch. Star gazing at night is PHENOMINAL !

The playgrounds are state of the art, and both safe and fun. For example underneath is rubber padding almost a foot thick.

It was simply perfect. The family was there for a week and we loved every minute of it. You didn't need a TV or Radio to visit. The place is so relaxing it makes you forget about these things.
