I liked my camp site, but the sites are bunched tightly together. It is run down. The restrooms and showers are the worst ive seen. I would definantly stay at one of the other parks around the lake.

My family and I stayed Labor Day weekend at McCown Valley Park and had a great time with a camp site that included a screened shelter and was only about 200 ft from the lake shoreline. The facilities are good and well kept.

This is a park I use for boat launching, having the best ramps on Lake Whitney. The park is consistently clean, well managed, friendly staff.
