This resort claims "World Class" status, well they need to invest in desalination of their fresh water before they can earn their overstated distinction. Our low review reflects the staff's unapologetic answer to our and other RV'rs questions about the foul tasting salt water. "Your on the beach, that's the way it is!" Well that's not the way in has to be, we have camped on barrier islands on Perdido Keys, and then out on Key West and their water supplies were perfectly drinkable. There is simply no excuse for their water quality or their flippant attitude. Otherwise the RV resort delivered everything you'd expect in a beach setting, it's overpriced with level cement pads, clean hydro, so/so free Wi-Fi and cable TV at $3/day extra. By all means stay here but bring your own drinking water and just don't open your mouth to taste the water while in the shower. We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

As in many RV parks around Dallas the park tenants here are for the most part are transient workers. Some of their campers made us shudder with the creeps, for example aged FEMA trailers with all the windows covered with foil. The upside of sharing a campground with workers is that they go to work, on weekdays the park empties out by 7 AM and it's very quiet. All sites are "back in" but most are nice and wide, even a novice RVer won't have a problem, just avoid the few sites that sit at awkward angles. They do allow you to drive down and pick any site you want, set up and then report back to the office. Solid and fairly level concrete pads and wide concrete roads. Clean 50 amp service, good sewer hook up. I disagree with an earlier post there's very limited shade available. Get used to train noise, two railways cut through town, and one is just 500 yards over the creek from the park. The trains run night and day and it will take a bit of getting used to the whistles through the night but you do become accustomed to the noise and the gentle vibrations. We stayed here two months and felt welcome and safe. The cost was very reasonable (plus electricity) the owners leave you alone. Across the creek sits a wonderful 7 3/4 mile long hike and bike path we recommend you walk the North path, it follows the Creek for 1 3/4 miles and is very pleasant and the view varies. The South path goes for 6 miles and is not nearly as varied in scenery. Now about the rental apartments built by the storage and RV park owner. You will be amused driving by the little ghetto of transformed storage units, these people are living in little box's with no sanitation, they use communal men's and ladies' showers and washrooms and the dress of choice most days is pajama's and furry slippers, Howard Hughes would be proud. Don't worry, they keep to themselves. We camped at Waxahachie Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Felt very uncomfortable here. Park is filled with permanents, some living in squalor. The park speed is 10 MPH but vehicles zip past the short term sites at easily twice the speed. Note, the short term sites are right up front on row "A" and it's a busy little spot with most of the 100 or so other campers driving to and from work. Seriously, you have to wonder when while checking in the person behind the counter feels it's important to tell you, "The police station is just up the road and they drive through here all the time." If you want to blow your inverter this would be the park to do it in. The household type 50 amp box was 3 inches off the ground with the door swinging up toward you blocking your view. I had to get on my knees and lower my head to see what I was doing. The first site we checked had a broken 50 amp socket, probably caused by the difficult access. But the real issue here is that there are no circuit breakers, the plug is hot. Beware! Couldn't wait to leave, would never go back. We camped at Dallas Hi-Ho Rv Park in a Motorhome.
