This is a large Park. Playground, swimming, fishing, boating and etc. The park was closed Friday thru Sunday as the surrounding lakes are closed due to flooding, but this park is high enough that the rise in water was not an issue. Gate Attendents are top notch, they check the park many times a day as well as a ranger. There are some trees, but most sites are in direct sun. It was hot when we stayed, 98 degress, with heat index of 108 so getting outsided after lunch was not acceptable unless you were in the water. A lot of history, as there is an old family cemetery in the campground dating back to 1838 as well as Dawson, TX, first town in the county and other historical markers. One negative is the Argentine ants. In some sites the ants will haul your RV to the next campsite! They will warn you about the ants, so take some type of ant repellent as most seemed to use Comet around their Jack pads and wheels and also anything that touched the ground. We did not have issues with the ants but we did see other that did. We will be back.

Good park, out of the way and right on the Lake Waco. No sewer hookups and a so so dump station, needs help! Lots of wild life, as we witnessed Foxes, Skunks, Lots of Deer. Weekends are packed. Gate Hosts watch the park like a hawk. I have stayed here several times before and will go back. Good place to relax and have fun.

This park is right next to the Dell Diamond. Baseball, and other entertainment right accross the street. This park is a gravel lot, with buddy system type hookups. There are 50 and 30 amp, but you must look closely. The Spring rains in Texas took a toll on the lot, with some deep ditches to get into a spot. Several long terms there so some of the rigs look like hungover RV's. But I must say, everyone was more than friendly, spots were adequate on space and really not bad to manuver around. Some trees, not every where, just a few. The proximity to Round Round is adequate, lots of facilities are close. Great history out your back door with museums and old Settler style homes. The Old Settlers park is rather large and on weekends is bussling with soccer and baseball kids and moms. We will be back as we stayed here in a 5th wheel.

This park is old and not a typical COE that I have visited over the years. Lots of shade by the Cedar scrub trees. Lots of bugs especially spiders. Webs are created by the minute. Great Lake views, some covered concrete picnic tables. Not maintained at all. Bathrooms are bug infested, hot, and they are pit toilets. Great place if you are going to boat and so use the day resources around the corner. Its an OK place for a couple days. Oh, and Electrical was pretty low voltage wise. We had campers next door and when their air conditioner came on and my air was on the voltage went to less than 108 volts. I can only image if there were any more campers on the same circuit. Will go back but will be well prepared with bug spray, brooms to knock down webs, plenty of candles, foggers, and a high pressure washer to wash the picnic tables, shelter, and concrete slab off before we use it.

I have stayed here on 2 occasions. Close to I-35 but quiet. Gated entry is relaxed; many cars came in without asking. Quiet, everyone staying was respectful, the staff were cheerful. I have always felt welcomed. Close to downtown. It's an older park and there are several more permanent residents. Shady, and clean and level pull throughs. I will stay again next year. Used to be a KOA. Well kept and has upgraded electrical utilities and cable.

Stayed here for a convention as I was not paying 200 bucks a night for a sleazy hotel. The park is busy, narrow roads, quite cozy. Everyone was friendly. Close to I-35 but not noisy. Lots of trees which is a plus in Texas. Some long termers here but great people. Gated, which I liked and is somewhat dark, not really lighted which made for some great rest and sleep. Wireless internet was good, not fantastic but for email and light surfing, it was fine. I will stay again.

This is just off I35W 5 miles north of Texas Motor Speedway. This is an overnight park. Concrete pads is a plus. It is rather close to other RVers. It was quiet and really not bad for where you are. Gas station, liquor store and a small market on within walking distance. I gave it a lower score because I watched people just let their pets "do their thing" and not pick it up and I did find "piles" in our site. Mobile homes right next to the RV park. Several "long termers" stay there and were quite friendly. You check in at the liquor store and pay there.

Really nice park, trees, trees, trees, and tall! The volunteers at the front gate make you feel like family. One of the nicest COE's that I have stayed. Lots of space between sites. If you want to use a satellite dish, well good luck, the trees are so tall and so thick, it may be next to impossible to get a signal. I had to run about 200 feet of cable to a clear spot. I will stay here again.

Nice clean park, no restrooms and no showers, but a laundry. Close to Texas Motor Speedway. Some big trees. This is an old mobile home park being transformed into a RV resort of sorts. The DFW Adventure park is right next door. In the middle of September they have something called a JailBreak: really a mess getting into the park and getting out. At the same weekend Texas Motor Speedway has the World National Dirt Track races. So it's a crowded mess in the area. The road to the RV park is a very narrow and not well kept. It's a blacktop road maintained by the county I assume, just really rough and has lots of potholes.

Really great people running the park. It is open, no trees, rather level spots. They help you park and get situated. I-35 makes it a little awkward to get into. Watch the signs and follow the direction on the web site. RV repair and supplies just down the road. I will stay here again, no doubt!

Excellent park, easy, laid back and great owners. I had stayed many times when former owners were here. It was great then; it is better now. Clean, well patrolled, accommodating. They keep a well kept eye on what is going on in the park. Will be back many more times to come as long as these owners have it.
