Discover Lake Tawakoni State Park, TX


When you book an RV in Hunt County, which is to the east of Dallas and Fort Worth, you’ll definitely want to check out Lake Tawakoni State Park.

The total lake has over 200 miles of shoreline, as the state park is only a small section of the shore.

The name of the state park comes from the historic Native American tribes that once lived in the area, the Tawakoni, and before being a park was farmland used by locals. The land in the area is pleasantly flat with some gently rolling hills on the horizon. When you are camping at Lake Tawakoni State Park, you’ll be in between Emory and Terrell, and both are towns have exciting attractions and features that are worth checking out.

One of the best reasons to go camping with an RV in a state park is to enjoy all of the outdoor attractions it has to offer while still enjoying the modern amenities of an RV. This park, being set on Lake Tawakoni, gives its guests unbridled access to everything the lake has to offer. Those who visit can boat and swim at their leisure, and paddleboards are a lot of fun since the lake doesn’t get too wavy.

Many trails surround the lake and weave in and out of the park, all of which are easily accessible while you are RV camping at Lake Tawakoni State Park. Some of the trails offer unique views of the lake, while others take you deeper into the surrounding trees and let you escape into nature. Bikes are allowed on some of the trails, so be sure to check the signage before biking or hiking to ensure you know what to expect while exploring.

Fishing is also an exciting attraction, just be sure to get your licenses in order before casting your lures into this nearly 38,000-acre reservoir. There are many types of fish found in Lake Tawakoni, including striped bass, white bass, largemouth bass, crappie, and catfish. The nearby park headquarters has gear that guests can use while visiting the park, so even when you don’t bring your own in your rental RV, you’ll still be good to go.

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership.

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

RV rental vs buying?
