North Texas Jellystone (formerly Rustic Creek Ranch), Burleson, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $130.00
Overall Rating:      

If you have pre-teens that you want to keep busy with activities such as a water park, paint ball, tractor rides, and scavenger hunts, then this is the place for you. If you want relaxation, views, or peace outdoors, skip. There are tons of staff members and they are extremely friendly. We were wanting a nice weekend away close to home, and this was not our style. It is an anthill of people racing around in rented golf carts.....I guess people don't walk anywhere and lots of noise from the interstate right next door. Also they had a dance party with Britney Spears loud enough for the entire campground. The site were close together and very shaded and well maintained. Some of the public areas, including the pools were a little suspect. Water pressure was awesome, 100 psi. Make sure you have a good regulator. We visited with our 4 year old and will probably not be back unless we are looking for entertainment for some 10 year olds. We camped at North Texas Jellystone (formerly Rustic Creek Ranch) in a Travel Trailer.

Fort Parker State Park, Mexia, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Very small, but very nice park. Shade trees are all around. Half of the sites were fairly open and not so private, but have a great view of the lake. The other half nearest the turnaround are very wooded. Lots of the sites are very unlevel. I had three packs of "Legos" and I still didn't have enough to get it level. Great lake access and views. The fishing pier is very convenient to the camp sites and looked very popular. The staff were extremely courteous but yet unobtrusive. We camped at Fort Parker State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Mineral Wells State Park, Mineral Wells, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

We stay at about 10-12 Texas State Parks a year and find them to have the friendliest people ever...except at Minerals Wells. We have been there twice in a year, and both times have had to deal with a "grump" at check-in. Not a big deal, just not how you want to start your vacation.

Other than that, great park. Tons of trees make most sites very private. Most driveways are long, but narrow. Very limited AT&T service past the check in station. No playground for kids, but a great lake for canoeing or kayaking. Lots of deer and wildlife.

Will return, but not looking forward to meeting the staff again. We camped at Lake Mineral Wells State Park in a Travel Trailer.
