Lake Daniel Campground

There’s about a mile of bumpy and weathered road you’ll have to travel along County Road 147 starting from FM 576 all the way down to the campground. You’re better off getting here during the week, from Monday to Thursday, because there are only a handful of campsites, and these sites are busy on the weekend.

Otherwise, expect primitive amenities.

There is a oil pump on the other side of the lake that runs all night and makes considerable noise when the still of the night comes along. You may want to bring ear plugs.
