Most of the previous reviews describe this place as we saw it, however I would add that there is a 10 PM curfew and the front gate is locked. No combo, no keypad, just locked. If you are in a site close to the entrance, and not carrying groceries or anything, it's fine, but you are on the outskirts, it is a significant walk. You must leave your car in an unattended dirt area overnight and walk in. We were told it was to keep the place safe, and questioned how safe our vehicle was if they were concerned about what happened inside the gate. We found the staff to be indifferent to guests and saw they were sometimes actually rude to people. The walk/drive in unreservable sites were all somehow reserved. We asked about this, and were told they were "taken".

This park was a real disappointment. After reading the other reviews, this park sounded OK for a stopover to see Fayetteville. It is a grassy field with some gravel and asphalt areas to park. The sites have no rhyme nor reason to the layout, the power was awkward to find, which went to which site. Some have cable, some not. It has a self check-in process and only takes cash or checks made out to the host's name. It is on a main street, and not very quiet, complete with barking dogs. The bathrooms have one each for male and female, and can only be used by one person at a time. They were not particularily clean cinder block structures. We could not find anything else close by, but next time will stay at the beautiful state park a little south of here.

This R.V. park is basically a parking lot in downtown Ft. Worth. The sites are very small. The location is convenient for visiting Ft. Worth, but it has nothing else going for it. The hosts were either too sick or too busy to open the office during our stay. Neither the cable nor the modem were working. There are several signs telling pet owners to leash their pets and pick up after them, but the owners have two dogs and three cats that run unattended. The restrooms had not been cleaned in some time. Only one person can use the male or female side at a time. The washer only fills to half full, and the dryer does not vent, so the clothes just get steamed. The host said they were been aware of this for some time.

This is truly a beautiful park. The sites are some of the largest I have ever seen, and the waterfront sites are spectacular! All sites are paved and have water 20/30 amp with others sites have 20/30/50 amp electric with a stone picnic table and fire ring with cooking surface. The lakefront sites are really on all-sports J. Percy Priest lake. You can anchor your boat or personal watercraft right on your campsite. There is a small swimming beach and boat ramp onsite. The beach and entire recreation area are reserved for registered campers, which is a nice contrast to the Cook Day Use area, another Corp of Engineers recreation area about 10 minutes away, which is packed with day-trippers on weekends. However, you do receive free access to the Corp of Engineers day use areas with your camping pass. The only minus here were the bathrooms. Contrary to other reviews, we found them very messy and in need of attention. However, the sheer beauty and spaciousness of the campground merits a high rating.
