“Camping at Lake Mineral Wells State Park”
Reviewed May 7, 2008

If you plan to camp at Lake Mineral Wells State Park, you know that the three most important words in park camping is "Location, location, and weather-report". In an attempt to match campsite amenities with individual needs, I have compiled an utterly subjective profile of campsite choices at Lake Mineral Wells State Park. Hopefully this list will aide my fellow travellers with the info I wish I had had before treking into the wilds.

Lake Mineral Wells State Park has over 108 camping spots with varying levels of rusticness (is that a word?).

Primitive Camping Sites - 2 loops of 10 sites each = 20 sites - no elec.- no water
Strictly foot traffic trail camping. Hikers must carry their tents and supplies 2.5 miles to the site. No horses, no bikes. This is really roughing it.

Equestrian/Hiking (Cross Timbers Camping Sites) - 1 loop of 20 sites - no elec. - water available - showers available - bathrooms available.
Parking is in a lot within walking distance, but not at the site itself. Hikers, bikes and horses permitted. (Owners must have a completed VS Form 10-11 (Texas Animal Health Commission) in their possession, showing that the equine has tested negative to an official Equine Infectious Anemia test within the previous 12 months)

Post Oak Camping Area - 1 loop of 11 sites - no elec. - water available - bathrooms available - no showers - wheelchair accessible.
Parking at each site. Site 11 is Wheelchair accessible. Sites 8 and 11 are nearest the bathroom. Sites 3,7,9.,10 are nearest the lake. Sites have few trees and are hotter in summer than the Live Oak area (and therefore nicknamed "Dead Oak" area).

Live Oak Camping Area - 1 loop of 46 sites - elec avail. - water available - bathrooms available - showers avail - wheelchair accessible.
Parking at each site. Sites 54 and 48 are wheelchair accessible. Sites 16, 55, 54, are nearest the bathroom. Sites 23 and 48 are nearest the bathroom/showers. Site 23 is nearest the fishing pier. Sites 24, 28,29 and 30 are nearest the lake. Site 30 sits right at the lake (but also has the accompanying mosquitos). Sites on the lakeside of the road include 12-30. Sites 40-43 are very woodsy with lots of trees, but must use a trail through the woods to get to the bathrooms. Sites 32-41 are more inland and not near the water. These sites are all very shady.

Plateau Camping Area - 1 loop = 29 sites -elec avail. - water available - bathrooms available - showers avail - wheelchair accessible.
Parking at each site. Site 86 is wheelchair accessible. Sites 85, 86 and 62 are nearest the bathroom/shower. Site 23 is nearest the fishing pier. None of these sites are on the lake or have much of a view of the lake. A Wildlife Viewing Blind is available via patch from the bathroom.

Screened Shelters - 1 double-sided road along lake = 15 sites - no elec. - water available - showers available - bathrooms available.
Parking at each shelter. Sites 9,10 and 11 are nearest the showers/bathrooms. Site 9 is nearest the fishing pier. Rentable Dining Hall in open grassy area at cul-de-sac with sites 13-15. Tent camping available on grassy area as well.

  • Liked — Very convenient, very lovely, very quiet, staff are very helpful and friendly, loved the general store guardian (Sandy)
  • Disliked — Not much else to do in that area except outdoor activities. If you are disabled, getting around would be tough.
