Fernbrook RV Park is located in the middle of a triangle made up of Longview, Kilgore, and Lakeport. It is about 2 miles south of Interstate 20 on FM 2011, near the old community of Peatown.
I could tell I was going to like this place from the moment we pulled into the park. The entrance makes a great first appearance. A white rail fence fronts the road, and the office sits just inside the fence. There is plenty of room to pull in and park at the office.
|Entrance to Fernbrook. Notice wide entrance and paced roads.|
|Roomy concrete pads easily accommodate rigs of all sizes.|
|From left to right: water, sewer, and electric/cable. Very convenient setup.|
|One of 4 streets in the park. Nice paved streets, paved sites, grass, and trees. Playground is on the left.|

There are 3 hosts who live in the park, and they stay busy and are very visible. We needed propane during our stay. We were told to leave our tank at the edge of our site and they would fill it up and deliver it. What a great service! A tank of propane cost $17.50, one of the best prices I've had on our trip.
Probably half the residents are long-term residents; they are located mostly along the southern sites where the mature trees are. We also saw a daily stream of travelers in many sites around us. Since the park is only 2 miles off the interstate, it is a convenient overnight stop for east/west travelers.
The park is highly rated, and their prices are very fair. About the only thing I didn't like about the park is that it is located about a mile from a gun club. Occasionally -- especially on Saturdays -- I could hear shots in the distance, but the sounds are so far away they are not a problem at all.
