This park has level RV sites and a lovely lake. There are several hiking trails that are unpaved with Geocaching in various areas. Be sure to hike to the dam for beautiful scenic views. Several deer were right at our campsite. The campsites were spacious with fire rings and grills. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. The shop on site had variety of staple food items for those that forgot the hot dogs or marshmallows along with fuel and rentals of kayaks. We will visit often.

Having grown up in Cleburne my wife and I and many of our friends have enjoyed the state park for over 50 years. It's always been a great place - quiet, lots of trees and a nice small lake. The park's been improved over the years and has very nice cabins as well as lots of good sites for RV's and tent camping.

We live in the Dallas-Fort Worh area and we love to take our RV there for a short 1-2 day campout and use the full hookup campsite. We have been there 3 times in the last 2 months. The lake is a spring-fed gem: the level is down, like most lakes around here but still decent; the entire lake is lined with small secluded beaches, clean and fresh water for swimming, nice hiking trails. I like the lake bottom which is mostly squishy mud without too much vegetation. I can get to about 4-5 feet deep, which is a safe depth for swimming. We can also walk around most of the lake just following the shoreline. Only boats which do not create wakes are allowed on the lake, so one sees mostly canoes and kayaks, and a few flat-bottom boats. The layout of the grounds does not feel crowded at all, even on holiday weekends.
I believe the camp store building is currently closed, so I am not clear where people get rental canoes and kayaks. Most people seem to bring their own gear and supplies.

There are screened shelters and group barracks and a group building available for rental. We like the place and think it would be suitable for a possible family reunion, or some such event.

From full hook ups to primitive sites. Great if you like hiking and/or mountain biking. Canoes for rent and decent fishing. Good central location if you want to explore Dinosaur Valley, Waco, or any of the Ft.Worth sites.

even though the water level was down, going to the park on a Monday with grand daughter in tow was a great trip. The water was clear and the park was very clean.
