Boone Park

Getting away from crowded campgrounds always seems to come at a price, and in this case it’s out-dated amenties and trashy campsites. Boone Park is a victim of small budget cities trying to maximize its tourist accommodations while spending as little as possible.

While most campsites at Boone Park tend to be of smaller size, larger RVs can still find at least one, perhaps two, sites at the southern-most portion of the park.

Overall, trash is a problem at Boone Park, and small pieces of glass can be found everywhere. Otherwise, this campground is still a quiet place to camp, and being that it’s free, can’t be beat.

The City of Nocona has enacted an ordinance with respect to camping at Lake Nocona…
