Favorites: Eisenhower State Park


Before I begin, I have to admit that I’m a big fan of the Texas State Parks.

Of the Texas State Parks, Eisenhower SP had been our most frequent destination.

Things we like about Eisenhower State Park:

The Bois D’Arch Ridge camping area has full hookups and all the sites are pull-through. (We’ve camped in the Bois D’Arch Ridge area each time we have visited.)

The camp sites seem to be larger at Eisenhower than they are at some of the other state parks we visited.

(The sites on the outside of the loops tend to be larger.)

The park has several nature trails, which we have enjoyed. We seen and photographed quite a few deer and birds during those hikes.

I don’t think we’ve ever gone to Eisenhower when we didn’t see at least some deer.

It has a swimming beach , which our grandson has always enjoyed.

Things we don’t like about Eisenhower State Park:

As with most Texas State parks, most of Eisenhower was built by the CCC. Due to recent budget “challenges,” parts of this park have been in disrepair recently.

(On our last visit, I noticed that some of the roads had been resurfaced.)

Some of the sites are not level. (Several years ago we had a spot that was so unlevel, we overextended a jack on our old travel trailer.)
