The campgrounds at Loyd Park are well maintained and the park is a nice place to camp. With 213 sites there are a wide variety of sites to choose from. There are sites that are right on the shore of Joe Pool Lake, others that are away from the water, some in nicely shaded alcoves of vegetation, and - perhaps not so nice on a hot Texas summer day! - a few sites that are relatively unshaded and out in the open.
Camping Fees and Reservations
Sites are from $20 - $28 per night, which is in addition to the per vehicle entry fee. Reservations can be made by calling the park: 972-237-4120. It is advisable to make reservations during the busy summer season, especially on weekends. Reservations for holidays weekends require more than a single night stay. You can reserve specific campsites (see the Loyd Park Map), provided the site you want is available.
Each site has water, electricity, a covered picnic table, and a concrete parking pad. Up to eight people and two vehicles are allowed at a campsite. There is also a limit of 2 tents or 1 camper and 1 tent per site. Fire rings are provided at many sites and bundles of firewood can be purchased at the park entrance. Check out time is 2 p.m. and quiet hours begin at 10 p.m. The restrooms have showers with hot water.
There are 2 group campsite in the park. Each site has 10 campsites that are arranged around a picnic pavilion (as shown in the picture below). The pavilion is simply a covered concrete pad with picnic tables. Fees are $175 dollars per-night plus any additional per-vehicle entry fees. The site shown below is less wooded than the other group campsite.
