Lake Whitney is in great condition over all, needs some road work soon, or the roads will go from needing maintenance to needing replaced. We did not photograph the mini golf as it is buried in the snow right now. Loop D has great FREE internet reception in the sites closest to the main road. Rumor has it, internet is good in the B loop as well. All the sites are in great condition, though some of the electrical boxes are suspect. As far as electrical is concerned, we took a 30A site, and it was more than adequate for our needs.The laundry is 1 mile from loop D; today we drove 8 miles just going to the laundry and back. :) Everything in this park is so far apart, one can really get his cardio in if he chooses to walk from point to point. Most of the buildings were closed for the winter, but the members are doing some activities on their own in the family center. This park is excellent for a Thousand Trails preserve; the staff is hard working and very friendly. Scale of 1 to 10, we give this park a high 9. The park would get a 10 if the lake was more accessible and visible. Visit Fort Worth stock yards from here. Don't forget to stop in Austin on the way or on the way out to see the presidential library and the new Texas History Museum.

There are three buildings containing common areas. The welcome center being the first left on the way into the park. The activity center housing the store, laundry, and large rec room. The family center which is actually the chapel, an adult lounge with pool tables, and a fitness center. The park in general is in need of repair, but is in better condition than many in the Thousand Trails parks we have seen, with the exception of three Florida parks which are in great shape. There is free wireless internet that can be accessed from the activity center and your RV if you are in the sites close to the club house. We have enjoyed our visit here and would definitely return.
