“Good for Family Camping”

Lake Colorado City State Park
Reviewed November 3, 2016

We took our toddlers here twice. I would not pay for a day pass. It is really only worth it if you want to camp as there wasn't that much to too or see. There was a burn ban, but most people were hacking off pieces of trees and burning anyways, which I found disappointing. But there was a lot of space for our kids to run. We can back for Easter camping and had an egg hunt, that was fun. The campsites were very clean and most of the property is mowed. Its isn't very dark there, as there is some plant or facility on the other side of the lake. The bathrooms were dirty and needed serious scrubbing, but the water was hot and the toilets flushed, so it was fine with some shower shoes. It is on our way home to OKC from West Texas, so we will definitely stay again, but probably not for more than one night.

We spent one night here on our way out of Texas. On a Tuesday, we had the whole park to ourselves. There are no trees for shade but the picnic tables are covered. The sites are level and you have an open sky for satellite. The fun thing about this park is the amount of wildlife. We had quail and roadrunners in and out of our site many times and very much enjoyed watching them dart about. The camping area sits next to the lake but there is brush that pretty much obstructs the view. There were a lot of stickers in our campsite so anyone with a dog would have had some trouble with that.

Just as most Texas state parks, it is well maintained. The campsites were nice and large. It is in near west Texas, so tress and shade is a little sparse. Campsites are not near the lake, but some have a "view". I dinged one star due to location - in the middle of nowhere. We were just passing thru on our way home, so it was good for an overnight.

At 4 bucks a person we were going to drive through to check it out, but with 4 people we weren't going to spend 16 bucks just to drive through and look around while we were killing time one day... sorry, but that isn't happening.

I have stayed twice at the park, only in the Cabin area. On both visits, our family was the only one staying in a cabin, and I could count the number of other visitors (in the camping area) that I saw on one hand. Very isolated feeling, but that is something I like about it. Beautiful skies at night. The best views of the lake from the cabins are from 6 and then 2. The limited use cabins are some of the best when compared to the others available in the State Parks available on I20, the park itself just seems forgotten and there is not a lot to do outside of the traditional camping activities. The staff has always been accommodating, even with late night arrivals. And just fyi, the door IS really heavy, the other comments were not an exaggeration..
