Lavonia Park Campground

Lavonia Park - COE in Lavon, Texas
We visited this park on March 23, 2017, and stayed for 11 day(s).

There are two Corps of Engineer parks in this area, Lavonia Park and East Fork. Lavonia Park was our first choice because it has full hookups, where East Fork lacks sewer hookups at each site. For springtime weather, it was perfect, but the 24 AMP limit on each site would make more energy-intensive summer or winter stays less appealing.

This is a beautiful park, very green in springtime, with wide open spaces, trees and canopies for shade, and great views in every direction. It borders Lake Lavon, so there’s fishing, boating, and lake swimming, if you’re so inclined.

Many of the sites are not sufficiently level or long enough for a big RV, but there are a few that are perfect. The upper loop roads are wide and in good repair. The lower loop, however, has some serious potholes, big enough that we wouldn’t drive them until they’re repaired.

The Texas state flower is the Bluebonnet, and they're everywhere.

Each site has a covered patio with a concrete picnic table. Burn rings are permanently mounted and positioned to not be close to your rig. We enjoyed an evening with family and friends under the stars, warmed by a nice campfire.

The picnic area borders Lake Lavon.

Bathrooms/showers were clean and adequate. We didn’t use them since we had full hookups, but checked them out for our potential guests and for the sake of this review.

The regular rack rate is $30/night, but with our Inter-Agency Pass, we were able to stay at half-price for up to 14 nights.

This is much closer to family in Plano, Richardson, and Wylie than our usual Bay Landing RV Campground, so there’s no doubt in my mind that we’ll be back on our next visit to the area.
