“Interesting history.”

Overall Rating

Entrance is in town, no gate, roads are easy to navigate.

Utilities worked well, water pressure was perfect at 50-55 PSI. Many sites are not level so bring your leveling blocks. Nice shaded picnic tables at sites.

There is only one restroom/shower building which has to be shared by all of the campgrounds! Hate to see what this is like on a busy summer day!

Lots of interesting historic buildings to explore. Several nice trails. Equestrian camping and lake swimming a few miles away in separate section of park.

Groceries and restaurants a couple miles away in town.

Quite a bit of traffic noise from the nearby highway and some machinery noise from nearby oil fields. In spite of the negatives, we did enjoy our stay.

“Historical”

Reviewed Mar 03, 2015

Overall Rating

I stayed here in winter and the park was almost empty. It is almost inside the town of Jacksboro which makes it convenient for provisions, but a little noisy. What I really loved about my stay was that the park includes historic Fort Richardson. It is a former Army Fort, established during reconstruction then used primarily during the Indian Wars. A sad chapter of our history for sure but a story that needs to be told and heard. I hiked from my rv site to the historic fort then spent the day wandering the parade grounds, officers quarters, morgue, bakery, magazine and most importantly the hospital. It is well preserved and staffed with knowledgeable people. The camp sites were wooded and varied. Mine had a spring right behind me which could be viewed on a hiking trail. I stayed at site 15, and it was close to the walkway leading to the bath house. Sites 18, 19, 20 seemed ideal in proximity to the bath house without being right next to it.
