Located on the shores of the Lake O' the Pines in eastern Texas, the Alley Creek Park RV campground enjoys a beautiful view across the expanse of the lake.The campground is split into three distinct sections, with two being dedicated to tent camping, while the far west section has a mix of tent and RV camping. All three areas have plenty of trees giving welcome shade during the hot summer months, and the majority of campsites are just a few steps from the edge of the lake.Almost 50 RV camping pads are available, all with water and electricity hook-ups. Each site is also equipped with a picnic table, fire ring, and lantern pole, just perfect for entertaining and eating outdoors, one of the main reasons to go motorhome camping in the first place. Each section of the park has a restroom area with flushing toilets.The campground also has a group area that can cater for up to 12 RV's, which could be the perfect location for getting together with friends and renting RVs for a group vacation. The group area has a private shelter, with toilets and showers, and all the RV sites have water and electricity.Not far to the east is the bustling Louisiana city of Shreveport, but if you want to avoid the bright lights, then several small towns such as Jefferson, TX and Lone Star, TX are nearby.When you book an RV in Cass County, there is plenty to explore in Texas. However, you can easily hop over the state line into Louisiana, Arkansas, or even Oklahoma, they are that close.

The Great Outdoors

Lake O' the Pines has plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy some fresh air while RV camping at Alley Creek Park. Whether that means sailing on the lake, fishing from the bank, hiking the trails, or just simply relaxing and enjoying the views, the choice is yours.Anglers will enjoy the abundance of fish, including good stocks of largemouth bass and crappie. Fishing is available from the bank or by boat, and with so much space, it's easy to find a secluded spot to chill out.Several marinas around the lake offer marine services, bait and tackle for fishing, but you may have to bring your own boat, as rental services are currently not available.A short drive north, via the town of Linden, is the Wright Patman Lake, a 20,000-acre reservoir where you can hike, fish, swim and go boating on the lake. Watersports are allowed on the lake, including jet skis and water skiing, but you will need to bring your own equipment.On the southern edge of Wright Patman Lake is the Atlanta State Park, where you can rent canoes and fishing tackle for use on the lake. There is a swimming beach here, but no lifeguard, so swimming is at your own risk.If you prefer to keep your feet dry, then you have plenty of opportunities to explore. Within the park are almost 5 miles of hiking trails, including a nature trail that takes you on a mile-long discovery of the birds and plants in the park. The kids will enjoy the playground and beach volleyball, plus there is a park store for drinks and snacks.

Exploring the Area

The closest town while motorhome camping at Alley Creek Park is Jefferson, and you can find all your essential supplies here.While in the town, head over to the Historic Jefferson Train Show if you enjoy a little bit of train spotting. Not only is there a fully working steam locomotive, that can take you on a 40-minute trip along the Big Cypress Bayou, but also some excellent model railroad displays. Kids, big and small, will marvel at the intricate detail of the models, and who doesn't like a ride on the railroad?The town of Linden has become known as Music City Texas, thanks to several famous music stars that once called it home, including Don Henley and Aaron T-Bone Walker. Many concerts are held in the Music City Texas Theater, so it could be worth checking out while RV camping nearby.A little further north is the intriguingly named city of Texarkana. The town is split down the middle by the state line between Texas and Arkansas and is also very close to the state line with Louisiana. The name is formed from the three separate state names, as in Tex-Ark-Ana.Continuing the multiple states theme is the Four States Auto Museum. Along with some beautifully restored cars, the museum also holds the Annual Spring Car Show each May, bringing together classic vehicles from all over the USA.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
