Our family is planning to camp in the Broken Bow area in April. Do you have any suggestions for campsites in that area? We will be traveling in a motorhome, 5th wheel and pull behind.

Beavers Bend SP is decent. If I remember they have horses for rent and I think a little train for kids. Last year I was in Fern campground in the Bigfoot, focused on fishing. Going back in 2 weeks if the weather isn't too cool.
It's a easy drive from Houston area up 259, if you don't miss the 259/59 split just north of Nacogdoches. My excuse was that there was a "lot of construction". All done now I think. Brookshire Bros. on the left soon after you get on 259, with fuel and a CAT scale. Google labels it a Subway.

Do not stay in the local State Park campsites, unless you first check them out. We checked out the Beavers Bend Park and it is tight, very tight. Did I mention Tight????? Most, if not all the spaces at the state park will be very hard to get into with anything over about 28',in my opinion. The spaces are crammed together, so you had better like your neighbors. The roads through the campsite are very curvy and narrow with lots of low hanging limbs. My wife an I decided real quickly that we were not bringing our 35' 5th wheel into this place. If you go, the RV sites will be packed full of rigs and people. If this is your type of camping, give it a try. I would look at some of the other private camp grounds in the area.
Another point. The whole Beavers Bend/Broken Bow area has been "discovered". Construction, crowds, and high prices everywhere. We will not go back.

^^Fern and the other nearby loops looked OK to me. Last time I was there I had a 35ft+ 5th wheel nearby.
I did take a drive on the loop (Cypress?) next to the river that was downstream from Fern and it was more crowded. But to me it's a pretty good state park.
I have no idea about it "being discovered".

We pass thru there nearly every summer since 1980 going to our hideaway in Arkansas and in the last 3 years the area around Beavers Bend has exploded with growth. Private Camp grounds, convience stores gift shops, restaurants , road construction , traffic. Will be going thru June 7th

I can't imagine what is causing "exploding growth" around Broken Bow. Is there a new sawmill in town? Its a long commute to Dallas.

Re-reading this thread I remembered an issue in Broken Bow. No Verizon service. None.
