“Great place to bring kids camping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

When our kids were growing up this was our favorite place to bring them camping. Campsites overlooking the lake, playgrounds, nice swimming area, and good hiking trails within the park. In fact, we liked the area so much that we retired here and are now locals.

“Great view of the Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

We went to the swim beach with about fifteen members of our family (6 young kids) and had a great time. Water shoes are a must. It was a great experience. The kids explored the caves and saw fish jumping out of the water. Afterwards, we had a picnic lunch up the hill in the shade and it was great fun.

“Quick getaway close to Dallas!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

We really enjoy Eisenhower Stat Park, it's close to home so it's great for those weekend you just want a quick getaway!

We "camp" in the Bois d'arc loop in our motor home. The pads are pull-through and very large. However, most are not very level. So depending on the size of your motorhome/travel trailer etc you'll want to do some scouting for the right spot.

The terrain is hilly with plenty of trees. There are some good mountain biking trails, hiking trails, nice beach area and good fishing. Our kids who complain about having to leave the city always end up having a good time there.
