Midway Park is one of several Corp of Engineer Parks on Lake Waco. This park is located on the south west side and near the end of Lake Waco.
It's a small park with 38 sites and it has easy access to Highway 6 leading toward Waco. The park has good access to Lake Waco which is small 7,000 acre lake which offers good fishing for bass, crappie, and sun fish and excellent fishing for catfish. Lake Waco has one marina with gas and two other camping areas.
The Park is sitting on a small hill that leads down to the lake and most of the park property is very gently rolling hills. Midway Park is just off of Highway 6 and as such sites 28 to 33 and the 5 tent sites will hear a lot of freeway noise.
The work campers do a pretty good job of keeping the park clean and well maintained. However, the last time we visited the grass was in need of a mowing. The restrooms and showers are clean but dated like most Corp of Engineer Parks.
We stay at Midway Park when we want to camp fairly close to Waco at a reasonable rate. We have never toured Lake Waco so we can't tell you much about it. However, we do enjoy Waco and all that it has to offer.
We enjoy golfing at nearby Cottonwood or Twin Rivers Golf Course , the Waco Zoo is great, and Cameron Park has some fantastic hiking and biking trails. See below for more info.
