We stopped over for one night at Elliott Lake on a trip to Virginia. We arrived late - around 2100 - and had a little bit of difficulty finding an open spot. They don't accept reservations and even though they have around forty or so spaces, many of them are filled with long-term residents. Most of the open spaces were reserved for 14-day or more camping only. Lighting is pretty poor so be careful as you negotiate the area at night. Signage is also pretty scarce and the layout of the park is not easily navigated (there are really three separate campsite areas, two of which are connected). For our purposes, the park was not convenient - located on the far southern edge of the post, about seven miles south of the main gate. Having said all that, Elliott lake is a hidden gem in the East Texas pineywoods! It's beautiful and remote and the perfect place to take the family for very inexpensive outdoor fun. As a late-night stopover on a trip, it's not ideal, but as a vacation spot, it's perfect. We can't wait to re-visit and stay for a longer time.
