Our campground is nestled in the Piney Woods of Texas Forest Country at Lake Sam Rayburn. Unlike many campgrounds you won’t find rows of RV’s as our park campsites are blended with nature surrounded by shade trees.
Each of our campsites is unique we have tried to retain the rustic feel of a campground set in the forest. Our campsites are graveled for your comfort and we have spaced our RV sites father apart then what you find in most campgrounds. We also have for your outdoor enjoyment a picnic table with a fire ring at each site. Our park is surrounded on three sides by US Army Corps of Engineer land that is a forest and fronted by FM-1007 on the other.
If you need to stay connected complimentary WiFi is available at each site. Each of our sites is a full hook up site with electric, water, sewer provided. Want to go tent camping? No problem as you can tent camp at any one of our sites. Unfortunately we do not offer cable TV as there is none in the area.
We also offer a climate controlled tiled bathhouse with private showers and a laundry reserved for guests of the park.
Propane is available to our guests, neighbors as well as the traveling public. We are able to fill your propane cylinder or motorhome. We can also visually recertify your propane cylinder as well. We keep our propane prices competitive and unlike many places we post our prices on the website.
We invite you to explore our website. We are happy to show you our bathhouse, several pictures of each campsite and try to answer any question that you may have about our campground. We have directions from several nearby cities to help you find us and we welcome you to follow us on our social media pages.

Lake Sam Rayburn is known for its great fishing is generally in the top 10 fishing lakes in the nation. Rayburn has many tournaments each year and is home to the largest amateur tournament in April of every year. Lake Sam Rayburn is also a great lake for water recreation with its wide open spaces and size. Summer time finds the lake filled with skier’s, tubes, jet skis as well as the diehard anglers.
Lake Sam Rayburn can trace its roots back to a plan for flood control with power generation as a side benefit. A project of three dams were planned. Dam A; Dam B; and Dam C. Dam A was to be called Rockland and was never built. Dam B is Lake Steinhagen - known locally as Dam B. Dam C was named McGee Bend Dam and Reservoir when construction was started in 1956. In 1963 the McGee Bend Dam and Reservoir was renamed in honor of Sam Rayburn who was a congressman from Texas and served many years as Speaker of the House until his death in 1961. Lake Sam Rayburn was completed in 1965 and was dedicated by telephone by President Lyndon Johnson who was also a close friend of Speaker Rayburn. Lake Sam Rayburn is the largest lake within the State of Texas. It is approximately 79 miles long and a surface area at normal pool of 114,500 acres. The pool of Lake Sam Rayburn fluctuates as the lake does it job of controlling flood water.
