We travel considerably and have stayed at many a campground/RV park. Personally rating Hidden Lake average is a bit of a push. We got there and the young lady "couldn't remember" what site she'd assigned us to. When we got to the site there was a pickup parked in the site. Called her to let her know and we asked if there was any other we might go to (even though she said she'd call the people who owned the truck). She said "If there's an open one, you can take it". Started to park in one....had a donkey visit us to the point I almost nudged it with the rear of the rig and it wouldn't move....wife finally go it to move (this was cute). However, the rig on one side of that spot looked like it should be condemned....awning torn and hanging down the side of the rig (and it looked like it was old and had been hanging there a spell), what appeared to be "junk" laying around (and this was observed in other parts of the park as well). Since we didn't want to disconnect because we were only staying overnight and this site turned out to not be conducive to that without hindering travel of others we found another spot. Called office again to let them know what spot.....no answer, left message and never heard a word back. Park looked in need of "upkeep" (weeds, junk behind outer row of rigs in forested area, etc.). Not recommending this park.…
There are some animals that roam freely and into your campsite. We were fine with that and brought corn and carrots intending on feeding. For kids the fishing might be fun. I was disappointed how close the sites are to each other. No picnic table at site but no room to have one. There are some out back you can drag one over to behinds your camper. The fire pit at the back of our camper was nasty with stuff in it. Being on the hill has no foreseen benefit. Might have some nice hiking trails but no map and not sure I wanted to just take off. The rain flooded all the trails so no hiking anyways. I walked the dam and feed baby the deer but other than that stayed in my RV. Young kids might enjoy more but still narrow sites.
Wonderful park! Very family friendly! Lots of trees and a beautiful lake! The animals in the park are a great feature. Dru and Jim are the best hosts! You should definitely go!! We will go back for sure!!
Wonderful place to stay. Beautiful campground with awesome wildlife. The managers are super people. They care for you as if you were family. Would love to go back and stay longer. If you get the chance visit this wonderful campground.
This is not a resort but rather a place for enjoying the natural beauty and quiet. The animals are a bonus as they wander around. The lake is picturesque although there were no animals or birds when I walked there. We were overnighting and will look for an opportunity to make it a destination several days out of Dallas.
Interesting concept... deer, burros, and other animals roaming loose in the RV park. They'll come right into your RV site, but they leave poop everywhere as well... so watch where you step! Nice laundry and shower room. Very good wifi service and friendly owners, but no cable tv, no clubhouse, no concrete pad, and no picnic table.
I needed a place to stay while working in Texas a few months. I found this place to be absolutely lovely. I rented the cabin which was furnished with very nice furniture, comfortable bed, a big screen tv, fireplace. As a single woman I felt extremely safe. And when I had car problems the owner Larry was kind enough to look at my car 2 different times. Exotic deer and other wildlife was a lot of fun to feed. Beautiful setting. More then fair rental price and I received my full deposit back. The service was amazing. Quiet, comfortable, clean and safe!
We stayed in the cabin for 2 nights with our 4 and 6 year old grandsons. They had an absolutely wonderful time at Hidden Lake. They were never bored. They loved the playground, bike trails, fishing and of course, feeding the deer. We had no less than 10 deer every evening by our campfire. There were also deer around the cabin during the day. The cabin was very comfortable and nicely furnished. It was perfect for the four of us. We will be back for another adventure.
Stumbled upon this campground after a tire shredded on my motorhome. Hidden away about a half mile up a dirt/gravel road but worth finding. I was warmly greeted by the owners Larry and Vickie Rogers even though I had no reservation and shown to my site by Larry. The campground is impeccably clean...well except for the deer berries scattered around. You see they have a herd of deer that roam among the camp sites. They are very friendly. One of the fawns came up to my dog sniffing and licking her. Other creatures to be found and enjoyed are pigs, goats, antelope, donkeys and I think a horse although I didn't see that one. You will not find these outside your camper, but in a field at the back of the property where there is also a lake and walking trails. Wish I could have stayed more than one night to really enjoy the facility but had a pressing deadline to meet and needed new tires. A TV station was going to film at the campground the day I left. The campground has laundry facilites but no public showers. For this reason I gave it four stars. If you are in this area of Texas, by all means stop in and meet the wildlife. Vickie and Larry are gracious hosts who are happy to tell you about each of the animals.…
