Inez Spring Riverfront RV Resort

48 sites · RVs, Tents25 acres · Eastland, TX
* OUR 250,000 GALLON POOL OPENS 5/5/2023 * Owned by Sam & Dee Williams, Inez Spring Riverfront Park was originally envisioned and created as a family retreat. As the park began to take shape, the Williams' realized what a hidden gem it really is. The natural spring that feeds Joshua's pond was named after Sam's mother, Inez. The area around Eastland is rich with local history, including Captain Eastland and the black bean, Old Rip the horned toad, The Santa Clause bank robbery, Ringling Brothers' Circus, Bonnie & Clyde, etc. In addition the area is known to have had a significant prehistoric Native American population. In fact, Sam and Dee are curators of an impressive collection of artifacts found throughout the area. The park boasts 15 camp sites and a large number of picnic spots along the riverfront and near Joshua's Pond, for day use. The Williams Family carved out a trail system that takes hikers along the rim of rock outcrops, between the gaps of huge rock slabs, along the banks of the Leon River and through a heavy shaded canopy of red oak, pecan and cedar elm. There's even a small cave for the adventurous spelunker. Kayaking is popular on the river and kayaks can be rented on the property. Admission provides a full day of fishing, hiking, swimming, boating, picnicking, bicycling, etc. Guests can even stay overnight on primitive campsites, for an additional fee.

In the summer months we do have copperheads, rattlesnakes, scorpions, and tarantulas roaming around although we don't see them often. Guests should be aware of their surroundings at all times though. Winter time is when it's great to roam and explore as temps are mild and the critters are hibernating.Population here is sparse at approx 1 person per sq mile in our county and our place is very private and secure. Wildlife is abundant and there are several great short trails to hike on our property or adventure as far as you like in the river bottom which is public land.

The best camping near Possum Kingdom State Park guide

Overview

About

This popular state park just an hour west of the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area centers on the clear, blue waters of Possum Kingdom Lake, with its 300 miles of shoreline. While the on-land activity menu includes hiking, biking, picnicking, and geocaching, the real appeal is the water. Fish for largemouth, striped, or white bass from a boat or fishing pier, or beat the Texas heat with some swimming or water skiing. Scuba divers will find one of the state’s oldest inland diving destinations—a popular spot for scavenging items dropped in the water.  

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for fishing: The Spanish Oaks Campground has a fishing pier and fish cleaning station.
  • Best for boating: You’ll find the park’s boat ramp near the Lakeview Camping Area.
  • Best for families: The Chaparral Trail Camping Area has a playground and lake access, perfect for families with kids.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. You can reserve any of the 29 electricity sites, 53 campsites with water, or 10 primitive, walk-in campsites on the Texas State Parks website. 
  2. You can book sites up to five months in advance. Book early for weekend trips, especially during summer.

When to go

Possum Kingdom State Park is a popular spot to cool off during the hot Texas summers, particularly on weekends between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Come in the fall or spring months to take advantage of cooler temperatures for hiking and biking. Many campsites close during the winter months.

Know before you go

  • Public consumption of alcohol is not permitted anywhere within the state park.
  • Swimming is permitted in designated swimming areas along the lakeshore, but there are no lifeguards on duty.
  • Park amenities include showers and restrooms, marina boat slips, a gas pump, and a shop with groceries, live bait, and kayak and canoe rentals.
  • Campsites are pet-friendly, but pets need to be kept on a leash at all times.
