This is a Texas size park with large spaces and wide open sky view of the stars at night. The lady that checked us in was very friendly and helpful. It is close to lots of food places. They have everything except cable TV but lots of local channels on antenna. Would for sure recommend this park for anyone. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed at this part several years ago. The change is very good. The landscaping, new buildings, and repair shop make this a campground to go to. We have been looking for a shop to work on our generator for the past week... all we heard was: we are one, two, or three weeks out. I called to make an appointment and was told no problem, just get registered and we will send a tech to your site. The service was quick and well done. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this park enroute to Houston. Pull through site was great since we were pulling an enclosed trailer. We decided while here to have some minor work done. Staff was friendly and was able to recommend some great eating places in Sanger. Seemed to be quite a few perm residents, but sites were kept clean and orderly. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
No playground for the kids. Good in-ground swimming pool. Clean park, good gravel driveway and pads. Park sits behind RV Sales location. Lots of extended stay workers from the surrounding area. Easy in/out for an overnight stay. Access from I-45 frontage road, but way off road so you don't hear traffic from Interstate. Good 1 night stop. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
New ownership by McClain RV. We've been here now for almost an entire month - job move. The Campsite is cleaning up very nicely under new management. All sites are extremely long and all are 30/50 with full hookups. Not much shade, but other than that it's a really nice park. A few long term, but with so many sites it's not very noticeable. Great showers and new laundry facilities. Second facility soon to be open. Oh, and with McClain sales and service on site it is easy to get service. Our water heater went out and they were fast and courteous and made the claim on our warranty too. It's just off I-35 South. Take View Rd. Exit 481. The Campsite is just past View Road up a slight elevation in the road on your right. Slow or you'll miss it! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
At first we had site 46 which is a pull through and was a really nice "level site" but when attempting to level the motor home each time the back wheels were off the ground by 6". So we were able to move to site 51. We always enjoy this park and find it to be very clean. The staff are helpful. The park is very quiet. Just check out the sites if you need a level one for bigger rigs (33' and longer) We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a fine park. We stayed in Deer Ridge area. Most of the sites there do not have water views. We were there on a weekend -- lots of kids. We did not have reservations and the sign said if you do not have reservations, don't even bother. However, we had no problem getting a site. We were lucky, our site had a lot of space, but many of the sites there are close together. There are some nice walking/biking trails. We would stay there again, but would probably make reservations and would try for a weekday with fewer kids. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a great park so close to DFW. Great hiking and biking trails as well as some great horse trails. Lots of Geo Caches too! We visit as often as we can and they do offer Wi-Fi but near the office so if you want to check mail you can run up there. The park gets busy, so go early to get your sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were just overnighting with the goal of staying at 4-5 state parks as we crossed Texas. This is a lovely park off season. I imagine it is packed during the summer, given its proximity to the Metroplex. Sites are paved with a picnic table and many have extra room for a tent. We had a gorgeous view of the water from our site, but there are many without views. We thought that the $25/night price was too steep for a state park, especially since we've stayed at ones we liked better for $14 or $17/night. But proximity to big city must be the reason. We would stay here again, though. The drive to the park through the horse country estates is something! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The Isle du Bois unit of Lake Ray Roberts State Park is one of our favorites. Sites are paved with a picnic table and many have extra room for a tent. We have a 38'9" fifth wheel and did not have any trouble with the campsite. The pull-through sites are 50 amp. Other sites are 30 amp. This time we camped in the Deer Ridge area and have previously camped at the Quail Run area. Both are nice and both have sites that are on the water. There is no sewer but the restroom and shower facilities are very clean. The overall park is clean. It is also very family oriented with playgrounds in each campsite and well as on the beach. It is wheelchair accessible, as the walking paths are paved. A wonderful state park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoyed this park very much. I believe that one of the previous reviewers was confused about which campground he was reviewing. There are no gravel roads in any of the RV loops in this park. The sites are not crowded. They are spaced nicely, and there is lots of shade and trees between sites. There is a two mile bike loop that is nice. The beach and swimming area is nice also, and there is a camp store near the beach. We will return! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We love this park. Everything is very clean and well maintained. The only complaint we really had is that the restrooms are very dark and dangerous. I was scared for my wife and daughter to shower alone. They seem to turn the lights on during the weekend, but not during the week. Very aggravating. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is gravel and very, very dusty. Sites are large and level. Access is good from highway. Long walk to office and meeting rooms from camping area. Long walk to dumpsters. Park has potiential, but probably won't be realized. Don't plan on staying here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a nice park, we stayed in the Deer Ridge section. There are several pull through sites with 50 amp service. The park has a nice beach area and very good launch ramps for boats. The nearest town of any size is Sanger, Texas, the next large town is Denton Texas. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stopped here for one night and used our Passport America to get the $17 rate. The checkin was easy and we were given a long pull through as we were leaving in the morning and didn't want to unhitch the towed. Very satellite friendly, WiFi is available but not free. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this campground last September and it had CATV. That's gone now and many of the amenities such as newspaper boxes are gone. Upkeep of the roadways is lacking; there are lots of potholes and debris in the area. The place looks run down. Next time we'll try Lake Ray Roberts for a short stay through north Texas. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not bad at all. Dusty roads, but they were watering them most every day. Park is wide open and therefore is subjected to some pretty high winds. Very large sites. Nice facilities and a large pool. Has a nine hole golf course on the property and the green fees are ZERO, Zip, nada, free!! Many of the sites are occupied by long term residents, but while we were there the park was only about one third full and you could get a site far away from everyone. We would return in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is going downhill. The dusty gravel roads are a problem when they don't have drivers that obey the speed limit, which they don't. The boom boxes go at all times of the evening and loud vehicle radio vibrate your coach. They try to keep the dust down by wetting the main drive into the park, but that does nothing for the site roads. They have a lot of permanent residences that enjoy the spirits every night. We won't stay here ever again. We were scheduled to stay two weeks but only made it one week...Wal-Mart would be better. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here a few months while I worked in Lewisville. I refer to this place as the "SANGER SANDBOX", as road and sites are gravel and extremely dusty. A lot of oilfield workers here and even though speed limit in park is 10mph most residents drive 20/30mph in and out of park in their big dually trucks. They have two trash dumpters that pretty mush stay overflowing with trash. There's game room but kids broke pool sticks and ping pong tables. I have to say folks in office very nice and bathroom and showers clean. The dust is so bad I just can't give it a better rating for long term stay. OK for overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has the potential of being a nice park, but the interior roads are full of pot holes and sites are in bad need of mowing. This park needs a maintenance person really bad. We paid for a month, but don't think we'll be staying that long. I don't think I'll come back as this park has turned into a real disappointment. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Restrooms cranky and dark. Was told on pamphlet that it has cable TV and Wi-Fi, No TV on site, Wi-Fi was poor and weak, paid money for nothing on that. Mostly live on site campers here. Very long walk to any of buildings and dumpster. Dusty gravel road that has not been graded in YEARS, shook loose things in side RV. Lots of pot holes. Will NOT stay here again and do not advise it to anyone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed 3 nights at this park. Traveling north on I-35, there were no signs indicating where to exit. We missed the exit, and had to turn back. The driveway to the park was in disrepair with numerous pot holes. At check-in, the host was not friendly nor helpful. She did not explain any of the amenities. Only gave us a copy of the park site. The copy had been copied over and over so many times, it was illegible. Some parts were cutoff completely. The cable service was almost non-existent. The people in the site next to us walked their large sized poodle and never once cleaned up the waste, so we had to be careful where we stepped. There were children riding around the park on 4-wheelers exceeding the speed limit causing a nuisance. The recreation/laundry facility was very nice and fairly clean. We did not use the pool, but it appeared clean and well kept. The name Sundown is very appropriate. The sunsets are absolutely breathtaking from the park. The location is excellent and convenient to the surrounding areas. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
One half of the park is fairly nice: all gravel roads and sites, lots of pot holes. Most pull through sites are very long, but narrow. We are here because of a rally. We are in the "trailer trash" section of the park, lots of weeds, some mowed yesterday, lots of long grass/weeds left behind. We overlook a run-down mobile home (private residence) with lots of trash in the yard area. The area right across from us is a "junk yard" full of abandoned RV's, rusted equipment of all sorts, very tall grass/weeds and trash. There is a garage of sorts just up a ways that has trash and rusted metal and various parts all around. The nicer section of the park has mostly grass, well trimmed and fairly level sites. The trailer trash section have very uneven ground around the sites, sites are not level, sites are half gravel, half weeds. I was ready to go get in the spa to relax, but it is green. The pool is clear and appears to be clean. The noise from I-35 is very loud, there are no buffers. I would not be staying here another night if we had not already paid for our rally fee. I would not recommend this park to anyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate reflects their monthly charge. They have added WiFi since the last time we were here and it is managed by an outside agency. It works well and made our stay much more comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful in all that we asked. The park is 12 miles from Denton, and only 5 miles from Camping World. For touring Dallas or Fort Worth, it is 40 minutes away. We will return to this park whenever we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A large roomy campground. The biggest Big Rig will fit. Rate above is a rally rate. I think there is fishing in the rear of the park. On the negative side there is no warning arriving from the north on I-35, so you overshoot and have to double back; there is NO shade and a Texas summer at 102 is grim, but not the park's fault. Would be great in October. Cable TV is about 12 channels, of which three were Spanish speaking. Staff is very nice. Will go back but in the Spring, Fall or Winter. A quiet park. Will return when it is cooler. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I waited such a long time to get to stay at this park and all they did was dash all my expectations. The people running this park go out of there way to be rude. During my six day stay at this park i could never really understand the pricing. I payed three times due to schedule delays and actually paid three different daily rates. One of the worst qualities about this park in my eyes are the roads or should I just say the maze of pot holes. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for two full months, taking advantage of the reduced price for weekly and monthly stays. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The sites are mostly level and the park sits on the top of a hill, surrounded by wide open fields. The sunrises and sunsets are beautiful. There is a restaurant on site, but it is only opened on Saturday nights and for Sunday brunch. LP gas is available for purchase on the campground. There is a 9 hole golf course on the grounds and you have your choice of walking or riding. The laundry is located off the game room which is very convenient. You can shoot a game of billiards, or play some table tennis, or even use the exercise equipment while waiting for your clothes to wash and dry! They have puzzles and games in there, as well. In the office area, there is a TV room featuring a big screen TV which can be viewed while lazing in the over-stuffed leather couches. Scattered around the buildings and grounds are quite a few bronze works by Frederick Remington. The staff even let me take pictures of the place and post them on our travel blog. We were here during the winter, so we were unable to use the pool or jacuzzi, but we will give them a shot when we come back through this area. Oh yeah, the showers work just fine. You do need to wait for the hot water to reach the showerhead, but for less than a minute, which I do not find unreasonable. There is only one handle on the temperature control, so I am not sure how anyone could say that they were reversed? Also, signs are posted in each shower room stating how to operate the faucet and advising to wait for the hot water to reach the shower. We would recommend this campground to anyone and it is where we will stay each time we are in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.

The roads are not great. But other than that I found the place very nice. If it had been summer I think it would have been ever nicer. The Passport America price was great for the grounds/services supplied. The lobby staff treated us very nice, as did the grounds crew when I had to move a table. Someone has invested a lot of money in this location and it shows. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A nice park. Why didn't the lady that submitted the first comments bathe her children in her travel trailer where she could have had hot water rather than complaining about the facilities at the park? We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in campground twice on our last trip to Texas. The campground is flat with gravel mostly pull thru sites. They have a 9 hole golf course and a large meeting rooms. The pool was small but nice and they had a game room with a few games. The problem I had was with the shower and staff. Our first night was nice, I got up the next morning to go take a shower. NO HOT WATER. I bathed my 7 and 3 year olds in ice cold water. We left without saying anything. On our way home my husband convinced me it was a fluke and we should try again as it is convenient to get to. He mentioned at check in the water problem of last week. The gentlemen replied, several people had complained that night. The next morning NO HOT WATER. I went to the front desk to complain and a couple (I assume the owners but am not sure they weren't the ones behind the desk) said they knew there was hot water they had the instant heating you just had to let it run for a while. I had let the water run for 3 minutes before I came to the office. They met me at the shower. He turned the shower nozzle to the cold side and after several minutes got hot water. (the faucet was installed backwards) I suggested that they put up a sign advising of the time it takes to get hot water. She replied they assumed people are intelligent enough to know you have to let the water run to get cold water out of pipes before you get hot. I've never stayed in a campground that I had to wait 3 to 5 minutes to get hot water. I am not stupid. I am a 34 year old CPA. My father has this type of water heater in his home and doesn't have to wait 5 minutes for hot water. How much water is this wasting daily? The woman kept on. I told her I wouldn't have been so upset if it hadn't happened a week ago also. She kept on and inferred that intelligent people could figure it out and she was sure there was hot water last week too. I told her this would be our last stop here and she said good. That sealed the deal for me. It is sad that such a nice facility has such crappy people. I can't in good faith recommend this facility based on the attitude of the people. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The rate reflected the Friday/Saturday Passport cost. The owner of the park stayed 1/2 hour late waiting for our arrival (Ft. Worth rush hour traffic). Nice long gravel sites. Water faucet mounted in below ground level box that had cut-out so that it was easy to hook up. Nice soft water, unusual for Texas, good pressure. The park has plenty of open areas, also a small herd of Alpacas. The animals have a herding dog with them who checks you out to see if you mean any harm to his charges. Once that’s established he’s very friendly. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here at Passport America rates and for only one night as we were passing through the area. The owner was very friendly and attentive offering places to eat and directions to stores and gas station. The park itself is clean and well maintained with some permanent residents and some seasonal folks. The packed gravel sites were large and level. We enjoyed the western theme motif. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here two nights on a Passport America rate. This campground is older, but in good condition and it looks like the owner is making ongoing improvements. It could be dusty if windy. I was noticing the grounds which is raked clean, but couldn't help but notice the bumper crop of puncture vines(stickers, goatheads,etc..)in the grassy area. Look out come August and September for your pets,Ouch. We would stay here again at this rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects a weekly stay, kid tax, and Passport discount. The Good: Friendly and interesting on-site owners and the Alpacas! We arrived one day after a Cria was born and had fun seeing it and feeding & herding the rest of the Alpacas. Our site was large & level. Our Verizon air card hooked up well. The park is far enough away from I-35 that the noise isn't as noticeable. The park is mostly seasonals or permanent folks so once the morning traffic is out the park is quiet. Laundry facilities were clean, reasonably priced and all functional. Groceries, gas, movie rentals, oil changes, etc all close by in Sanger. The Bad: The WI-Fi situation was a bit wonky with 2-hour passwords or having to use another password but fearing that logging in on it would kick someone else off. We understood them to be working on getting it resolved. Shower situation in the men's restroom a bit awkward with no privacy between them and the restrooms , but no one else seemed to be using them so it was OK. Also, stick to the gravel when walking around as there are lots of sharp painful burrs to be found off-path (not the parks fault but just something we learned the hard way). The main traffic light in Sanger gets a bit congested. Try to avoid coming through during rush hour or school ending times. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 5 days, while attending a family event. Big sites, nice and wide, not very level. Very dusty because of no rain for a while. Originally were going to get a pull-through site, but decided on a back in because of shade. Did I mention it's been over 110 every day?! It's an older park, but well maintained. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. Rate reflects Passport America and Good Sam discounts. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects combined discounts from PA and Good Sam. We really enjoyed this campground. Our site was level side to side, but had to lower front significantly to achieve level front to back. Internet available but costs extra. Our Verizon cell and Internet worked great. Couple in office very accommodating and friendly. Very quiet area, easy to get to, big rig friendly. We stayed four nights and would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a delightful park with back-in sites, gravel and level. The park has a western ranch theme and includes a herd of Black Angus cows that wander by each morning and night (outside the park fence, of course). The owners are a very friendly and helpful couple. The wife gave us a welcome bag that was awesome when we registered. I would recommend this park to anyone and certainly will come back again when we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed on a Passport America rate. Nice big park, lot's of open space and grass. Quiet park for peaceful nights sleep. Very friendly front desk. I recommend this park for a night's stay or longer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
