We didn't quite make reservations as the person on the phone said they would be there all night and would definitely have a spot for us. Before arriving, we weren't sure if we were going to stop here or just make the longer drive to Oklahoma. We decided to stop here and hang out with friends in Plano for the night. First off, there are no signs for the RV Park, and if you don't know the address, well, you're just out of luck because it is extremely hard to find. After looking up the address and finding it, we pulled in. There are only 7 sites here, and the area just looks bad. It reminded me of the Hills Have Eyes so we turned right around and left. There was trash everywhere, broken down old cars, old ice machines everywhere, and a large metal building that looked old and run down. The whole place seemed very creepy so we left and will have no reason to ever return to this place. I just got a very bad vibe from this place. We went to another place down the road and hands down, it was a totally different atmosphere. We camped at Texas Star RV Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

Lighthouse RV Resort, Melissa, Texas

We had originally made plans to stay at another RV park which is just right down the road. We have never been to this area so we didn't know what to expect. We arrived at the other park and turned right around to get out of there. Very creepy place. We rolled into Lighthouse RV Resort and actually got there 30 minutes after the office closed. The door was still open, and the manager was about to lock up and leave. I explained our situation, and she told me, "take one of these two spots here and just pay up in the morning." The lady was very kind and I don't know of too many other people who would have done that for anyone. Most others would have said, "Sorry, you're late, and we are closed." So, thumbs up to the management here for taking care of people when they didn't have to. Besides this park and the other one down the road that we left from, there are no other parks around. Had she not done that for us, we would have been up a creek. The park seems to have a lot of permanent residents which for me is completely fine. I would rather have people in the park that see what's going on at all times. Keeps the riffraff out. The park seemed to be very nice and clean with LOTS of trees and shade. We were assigned to a pull-through site which was really easy to get into. The pad was half gravel but surprisingly level. I didn't have to put any levelers under the tires. We didn't get to use the swimming pool or restrooms, but overall, great place to spend the night if you're traveling through. It's a little ways from the city, but close enough to make the short drive. The only reason I gave this place a 9 and not a 10 was for the ease of finding the place. We passed it up once because there were no signs and the grass on the medians next to the highway was so tall it was hard to see what road to take. We finally figured it out, and after that, it was easy to return to from going out to eat. Not a huge issue at all but maybe a sign or two off of Hwy 121 would be helpful. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
