I am looking for nice quiet, convient, adult, camping in the Lake Texoma area. It can be Texas or Oklahoma side. I live in far north Dallas (Collin County) I am sick and tired of travelling through Dallas-Fort Worth to get anywhere.

I should *not* be:

1. Thousand Trails. Been there and rejected that.
2. Any big-time trailer resorts that require a "membership".

We have camped at Eisenhower State Park several times. We stop there for one night on our way to places north like Branson, MO, that take a day and a half to reach or to drive through Dallas in the middle of the afternoon to miss the early morning traffic.

We have enjoyed our stays as there has never been a crowd leaving many sites to select from. Just show your Texas Parks Pass and get the discount.

Sandi and Jay,

It's not Lake Texoma but Paul and I really like the two parks at Lake Ray Roberts: Isle du Bois and Johnson Branch. Really nice campsites and paved hiking/biking trail plus the Dallas Off Road Biking Association trails for the experienced mountain bikers. The DORBA trails are rated a 1-4 with 1 being the easiest. I WALK the DORBA trails and ride the nice paved trails. My biking skills are about a 0.

The beauty of Isle du Bois is that we can get there in an hour from our home in North Plano. We'd rather spend less time on the road and more relaxing. Out Custer to 380 then west to a cut off to the park. (little more complicated but it's not that hard).
