We used Golden Pass for half price during first 2 weeks. Then we were camp hosts for 4 months. Nice lake and fishing ramp. Marina is nearby. We were hosts in sites 40-49 which was mostly a fishing area. Sites 1 - 39 were mostly big rigs and quiet while our area had more tents and small rigs and loud music was prevalent. The campground has high winds, fire ants and lots of spiders. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. $9 was Golden Age rate. Sites were pull through and level side to side, but not front to back. I had to unhitch in order to level our trailer. There was a hummingbird flying around in the office when I checked in. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The price reflects my disability pass price. The regular price is $16. The big rig sites are great. Long and level. Big rigs cannot park next to the lake as they are at a very steep angle down towards the lake. We had beautiful wild flowers blooming behind the rig, and a great view of the lake out front. Employees were very nice. BUT they have a curfew: be in the park by 10 PM; the gates are locked. If you came in later, you would have to park your truck out front and walk into your rig. Overall it was a nice park, level sites, good electric. I would come back again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground was clean, fairly nice and the pads are long enough, however, they are not very flat for the larger units. We had to use a lot of blocks. There are also many sand burrs along the edge of the water. If you have dogs beware of this. Since this was February it wasn't very busy. I'm not sure what it would be like in the high summer season. We would probably stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed two nights but really weren't happy with the park. Very noisy, not many restrictions placed on rowdy guests. Showers are not what you'd call private. Sites were hard to get into. We would go back, but not during this time of the season. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Another great COE park. We were in site #6. The sites are pull throughs with alot of shade. Has covered tables with grill and fire ring. Our Verizon phone and internet worked very good. Direct TV was difficult with all of the tree cover. The bathroom /showers were older and at the other end of the park. None in the section we were in. Although we were told they are planning a new bathhouse in the center of the park, maybe this year. Gates close at 10:00 pm with no access before 6:00 AM. We will stay here again.

This was first time at this campground. It was awesome even for a hot August. Beautiful sites we were in site #4. Has pull through sites, covered eating area, lake front view, grill and fire rings. We were there in a 33 ft travel trailer, and our rate was a senior rate. No playground facilities for grand children but they had so much fun with other things that they did not miss it. The restrooms are chemical toilets. Will definitely be back! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is the reason we like COE campgrounds. It is well maintained, quiet, the sites are level, the hook ups work, very easy to maneuver into and out of the sites and there is enough shade that it even helped with the Texas summer sun. The rate reflects a senior discount and we will always come back to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have camped in this park several times. The gates are locked at 10:00 pm. We camped in Site 13 the last time, and could not get Dish Satellite access. It is a beautiful park, well maintained with a friendly staff. We will stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A nice quiet park on Lake Bardwell, 20 miles East of Waxahatchie. We stayed in site 21, which had large shade trees on either side of it. New fire rings were provided. Restrooms were clean, but there was no hot water. If we were to return to this area, we would stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice COE park on Lake Bardwell. Lovely setting. Our only disappointment was that the toilets were pit and the water coming out at the showers had an extremely strong sulfur smell. Strong enough to make you gag. But if you are self-contained, it's no problem. We were there in Nov, so the park was pretty empty. Very friendly workamper staff. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice park close enough to the Dallas area for a weekend getaway. We stayed for two nights, and the park was nice and quiet. There is not much to do there, but it is a great place to get away if that is what you are looking for. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There are 3 parks at Bardwell Lake available for camping. We camped at Mott Park and had a nice lakefront site, which we were able to select online. Even though it was a holiday weekend, the spaces are far enough apart that it did not seem crowded or noisy. Some sites require a lot of leveling, and some are 30-amp only, but the reservation system will tell you this. This is a no-frills park, but the scenery is lovely and a perfect getaway if you want to just get out of town, enjoy nature, and relax. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
