Wasn't expecting much but was very pleasantly surprised. We got one of the few 50amp sites by the lakeside. Couldn't have been nicer. Clean, level, and paved. Will certainly come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
the park is pretty and easy to in and out. Lots of local TV channels. Man on gate was friendly and helpful. Only thing bad about it is the airplanes about ever 10 minutes or so. I think we were directly under the flight pattern. Of course the name is Airport COE. My 12 dollar camping fee is due to being over 62 with a golden age passport. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The only thing lacking at this park is no WiFi. Otherwise, the location is very accessible to Waco and things to do. The lakeside spaces are well kept and very scenic. The beachfront at the site we stayed at was small rocks. The only other drawback, perhaps (and it wasn't a drawback in our case) is that the park closes at 10 PM with no entry at all. So, if you are a night owl, it may not be for you. The price indicated is with a Golden Eagle Passport; otherwise, it is $24 per night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I don't give very many ten's, but this park deserves it and the grounds crew keeps this park very clean and tidy. We were here when the park was virtually empty, but I think with the sites so spread out even with a full campground it would not impact my review. We camped in the middle loop campground and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent COE park. Sparkling clear showers and restrooms although we did not use them. Our site did not have sewer, but it was not a problem as we were only there 1 night. Quiet, lake front, beautiful, treed, and level. I would stay again. I think this would be a great park for a longer stay, but make sure you get a site with sewer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Would definitely recommend this park. The COE's know how to set up an RV park. Beautiful spots overlooking a lake. So quiet and peaceful. No Wi-Fi, but wasn't looking for that type of spot. Will go back again and stay longer. Camp host at gate was so nice and courteous. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park, very clean. This is the only COE park that has asked for my drivers license and my GOLDEN AGE CARD this year. We have been to six so far. This our third time camping here. The park is easy to get to, and is totally paved including the sites. The bathrooms in our area are older but very clean, showers are nice and refreshing, and they have a nice bench to set on. Some COE parks don't. One thing I wish they had here for us to use are washers and dryers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful park. Clean and spacious. The only reason I didn't give them a 10 is because some (one) of the people giving out the sites is a dunderhead! I asked if they had any camp sites, and he replied, "I don't think so". Then he looked and found 4 for us to look at for one night. OK, we drive through the campground, and there are only about 10 total sites taken. We go back and ask about another site and ask if we can stay four days. "Well, I guess". The campground was never full the whole time we were there, and yet other campers gave the same report. Almost didn't stay because the check-in guy said he didn't think any sites were empty. I think he just didn't want to be bothered. Bother him, it's well worth the stay! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The Zoo Park Rd address on the rec.gov website is wrong. The correct address is 4600 Skeet Eason, Waco 76708 as listed on the campground map handed out at park check-in. This is a very nice COE park with full hookups. Verizon cell is great and satellite should be available in most sites through the trees. Occasional airplane noise during day, otherwise very quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My wife and I have camped here before, we have enjoyed are stays here, very quiet, rest rooms were a little dirty. They only clean them on the week ends due to budget gets. The park has always been clean at the camp sights. Our sight was a back in, with a concrete driveway, very spacious, nice picnic area with a big table. Would recommend. Our park fees were based on the Golden Age Card. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Disabled Vet discount. One of the best Corps parks we have visited. Very large, well spaced sites with picnic tables and fire rings. Some sites have shelters over the tables. We were in #80, with full hookups. View of Lake Waco is great. We will return for sure. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our second stay at Airport Park. The sites offer well maintained picnic spaces with grills and campfire rings. You are even allowed to gather wood. We've enjoyed walking the grounds that are spread out along the shore in several loops. With the exception of occasional air traffic, this is a very quiet place to stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pros: beautiful scenery; many lakefront sites; large sites; full hookup sites available Cons: appalling conditions in bath house for 16-36 loop - should be bulldozed and rebuilt; unfriendly to dogs with burrs in the grass; sites in 16-36 loop are not as level as other areas. Would stay here again, but would never plan on using bath house. Price paid is for E/W site with Golden Age Passport discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful place, sites well maintained and very spacious. Be aware that the entrance/exit gates are narrow. Be careful if you have a bigger rig. You also have to watch the tree branches. Only reason I didn't give a 10 is no playground equipment for the kids but tons of room for them to run around. Lots of bugs in the evenings though-otherwise they didn't bother us at other times. Definitely a bargain at the $24 with 50 amp F/H/U sites. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful corps of engineers park. Sites are widely spaced. We had beautiful views. Sites were level and long enough for the fifth wheel, truck and a visitor's car. The far loop, sites 67-81 were the most scenic. We added this one to our favorites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were in site #10: a lake front site with covered table and gravel patio area. Verizon phone and internet were very good. There was open sky for Direct TV. The only down side was the sewer connection, which was at the first of the pull-through. For our door to be at the concrete pad, it took 30 feet of hose to reach the connection. A trailer with the door in the middle, or a motorhome wouldn't have any problem and still be on the concrete. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is an unexpected surprise. We were looking for someplace to stay while we went on the tour of the Texas Ranger Museum. It was perfect. Good price, close to town but when you are in the park you felt surrounded by the lake. The best sites are 44-80. It is a great park to walk, fish, or ride bikes. A perfect place to stop for a night or a week. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have mixed feelings about this little park. Easy access from IH-35 just to the east. The first impressions were good. Big area, beautiful rock entry gate, lots of green grass and new trees and shrubs. Sites are packed gravel, nice and wide, easy in and out. Very quiet no highway noise. CONS: No one on sight to check you in, just a sign with a "for information call #." We left payment in drop box after picking a site. Most folks here were long term workers in the area. There were a couple FEMA trailers with the AC's running, but no one around. No pool, no Wi-FI, no cable TV and weak cell service for AT&T. There are NO street lights or lighting around the campground. After dark, you need a flashlight to walk around. Flat Creek will flood so be careful if flash flooding is forecasted. We came back from dinner with friends to find the main gate closed and we had been not give a code. The info line was answered and we got in with out a problem. Lots of potential for this little gem, but the owners need to step up and be on site. Too expensive for what you get. Doubtful we will return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a charming little park. It is easy access, level, concrete sites with what appears to be new equipment. The check-in procedure is unusual, but was not a problem. There are a lot of long-term residents. They were all friendly and helpful in directing us to a lake for dog swimming. Avoid the Creek, we were told it is very snaky. It is worth the price, a very quiet, perfectly adequate park. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a strange little campground. It has only been opened up for 6 months. It is in excellent maintenance and the person running this campground will bend over backwards to help you in all ways. It is hard to describe in that this is not a typcial campground. It is very clean and has good restrooms. Additionally it has free laundry machines for your use. Additionally there is a little house on site which is always open and has rocking chairs on the porch. You can use the house and it has 3 sitting areas and another 2 bathrooms in it. There is a large herd of sheep guarded by 2 big dogs right next to the campground and you can go in and see the sheep or wonder out to the several lakes. There are peacocks and other birds kept near the house in pens which are interesting to watch. There a number of antique trucks and cars you can wonder around and look at also. The campground is settled between a large corn field and a creek. It feels like you are in the middle of farm country but you are only 5-10 minutes from all restaurants and shopping. We stayed here 3 days because our truck was broken down and to help us out the owner just lent us his car. There are a number of longer term residents here who keep there area spotless and are very friendly. It is very difficult to see the sign for the park and you can easily miss it. It is a gated campground and the gate is set up I think to close when it gets dark. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We like to stay at fairgrounds because there is lots of room to move around in a big rig towing a big trailer plus fairgrounds don't have lots of amenities that we don't use and don't pay for. This was a great fairgrounds but "checking in" was ridiculous, clearly the left hand had no idea what the right hand was doing. There were many pull thrus on level hard asphalt and/or dirt. Many Back in against fences. Most sites were water and varied electric (30 or 50 amp). Also there are vast areas to walk a dog. We would stay here again. There is a lot to do in the Waco area and this is a good location to do them from. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. Very large sites with plenty of space between sites. Paved roads throughout. We arrived at 7:30 PM and they were there to escort us to our site. Note: cash or checks only. Biggest surprise was a free breakfast (eggs, bacon, potatoes, biscuits & coffee) free with your check-in receipt (leave a heavy tip for the young cook/waiter). Very easy access off of I-35E . We will stay here again on our way south. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
At first we thought this park was a little expensive for a one-night stay. Then we were told about the free breakfast buffet. When we went to check it out, it was wonderful. Scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits and gravy, coffee, juice. This would have cost $20 for the two of us, so that makes the camping $10! What a deal. We have been here before and we will definitely stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean park for overnight. Sights were level pull through's, clean but not paved. Free breakfast was included. This park is just off the interstate so expect highway noise, but there is also a train. Better than a truck stop but not so quiet. It was an ideal location for my trek. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very tidy park with nice shade trees, grass and gravel sites and an escort. There is highway construction that affects the normal entry to the park, but it's easy enough to get to even with the construction. Cash only. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park. Hosts are very nice. The park was less than half full. Can't figure out they put another RV right next to me while there were so many open sites. They do provide Wi-Fi service but they do charge extra for it. Probably would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a really nice park. Right now I-35 is under construction and makes getting to and from this park a little difficult, but it's do-able even with a big rig. There is a little highway noise, but it's hardly noticeable. Park hosts are super friendly and they serve a free breakfast every morning. Park hosts have a couple of Texas size dogs that have the run of things. The dogs seem to be harmless, but they made me very nervous when we took our large German Shepherds outside. Since we were only staying overnight it was easy to keep an eye out. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It was a cold, rainy, evening. We were passing through, and the site served us well for that reason. No CATV - (I'm a news junkie, so I look for the TV for that reason). The young man at the check-in counter has an introductory spiel worth listening to (haha). Seems to be a good number of permanent and semi-permanent residents. The site we were given was pull thru, level, and quiet. The sewer hookup was raised approx a foot above ground - might prove a problem for some. A great deal of construction was taking place on I-35 adjacent to the campground but did not impede entry or departure. There is a continental breakfast offered - we did not partake - again, raining and we elected to get on the road. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good clean campground -- not much around Waco to pick from. Friendly staff, free continental breakfast (nice touch). Level gravel sites with paved roads, easy in/out, sites about 25' wide along pull through rows but some are wider. Relatively spartan -- no picnic tables, no concrete pads, Wi-Fi is pay but 4G Verizon & AT&T signals work. Situated on I-35 so some road noise if that bothers you. Lots of construction on I-35 right now but that will get better with time. Many permanents in park but they are along the edges and way in the back. I thought $32 (after discount) was a little much for what you get. Weekly rate is a whopping $4 less than 7 daily rates. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great family owned and managed park with paved roads and solid gravel spaces. Easy access for big rigs. Some noise for interstate but very convenient to shopping. We also enjoyed feeding the goats that live on the property. Nice small lake for walking dogs. We stayed a month. Owners are dedicated to improving the park and offer a free breakfast in the cafe for short stay residents. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spent three nights here. Pool nice. Sites are not level. Lots of regulars that live there. Very noisy if you are at front. Internet poor. Family friendly. No shade. Not much to do in Waco. Probably won't stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice, overnight stop. I read reviews of lots of highway noise, but it was no more or less than others. Sites were a little spartan. There was no picnic table, no cable, it’s about 5 highway miles for supplies, and the Wi-Fi was iffy. The staff was friendly. Park lay out is good. Showers and restrooms were very clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Small sites, but good. Gravel with paved roads. Clean. Friendly staff. Great breakfast available. Lots of interstate noise. Doing some modernizing of propane area and entrance. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As long as you don't need to rest or get any sleep and you have a propensity for being a race car driver, this is the place for you! Although the speed limit is posted as 5 mph, the average speed is closer to 30 mph and this includes the park personnel as well. In fact, they are the biggest violators! The traffic from the permanent residents is constant. Their vehicles are loud and they have no concept of speed limits. Trying to sleep in late the next morning (we stayed several days - unbeknownst of the noise) they decided it would be nice to mow the grass under our bedroom window early in the morning. Scratch the sleep-in idea. I can see why this is named the I-35 RV Park. The main road inside the park has more traffic on it from the local residents than the transient traffic on the nearby I-35 road! This park is not for the RVers that like to rest and relax. You would do better at one of the rest areas on I-35! Needless to say, we will not be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Unlike the previous review, noise was not a problem. Yes, it is close to I-35 and there is a train track a mile or so away. This is really a "winter Texan" place. Cafe opens October through winter. Cash or check only. Family owned and operated. Nice folks, escort to site. Long term/permanent sites are at the rear of the park. Paved roads, gravel/grass sites. Wifi a little slow, but worked. Very big rig friendly and we will use it again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Planes, Trains & Automobiles. You can hear all 3 at this RV park. Good location to see Waco though. There is a restaurant on site that offers breakfast and dinner Monday through Saturday. We didn't try the restaurant but those that did said the food was good. They also have goats and we got lucky enough to see triplets shortly after they were born. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Have stayed here twice: once last summer and again in March, 2011. Both times was greeted with a sign on the door that they only deal in cash. They do have an ATM machine if you need to access your cash accounts. Also, for the second time I was also told that they had been having a "problem" with their Wi-Fi. Problem is: it doesn't work! Should I decide to stay again I will definitely call ahead to inquire about the Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Located right next to the interstate. Some noise, but nothing too bad. Friendly staff and plenty of room. This campground serves as a great stopover point for snowbirds. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great place to stay if you like noise. Very wet when we stayed and muddy. Cash only. Restaurant was not open when we went through. Looks like several transients were living there. Not one of our favorites. We won't be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Although close to I-35, the road noise is minimal. The entrance is wide and very easy to enter. The sites are level and wide. Monthly sites are kept separate from traveling guests. The owner is very pleasant, has a great sense of humor and greets his guests with warmth, even if you have never met before. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice cute park located approx 12 miles north of Waco. AT&T and Sprint worked fine. Our Sprint Hot Spot worked good. It has paved roads and dirt pads with grass. Friendly staff. Cash or check only. We stayed here 3 days. It is a very relaxing park with small ponds and friendly ducks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stay here every time we go through the Waco area (Elm Mott) and have seen many improvements since last year. Everyone very friendly and the roads are now paved. Sites are level (at least ours was). Will definitely stay here again when passing through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not a fancy RV park but easy access off of I-35. All asphalt roads. Laundromat looked good, but didn't use it. The men's room was always locked so didn't use it either. Escort to our site was nice. No food nearby. They have a cafe, but it was closed during our visit. Verizon Wireless worked here. A good overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park!Level pea gravel 50 FHU site; paved roads; wonderful cafe with a home cooked meal so you don't have to cook or un-hook; very nice pool and spa; pet wash; no cable but great TV and satellite reception; poor Wi-Fi reception; easy on/off and road noise not too bad; very friendly staff; felt secure; plenty of space to walk the dog. Just a nice place to stop and rest for however long you need. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great place with great friendly people. The manager is very entertaining. Close to the interstate. Large level sites. Great little snack bar on site that is clean and pleasant, not 5 star dining but the food is good. And they did extra duty to take care of us when we were a late arrival. We used it for an overnight stop and were very pleased. Not sure about the date I put in but it was close to then. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is unkempt, weeds everywhere. Loads of extended campers with run-down units, really looks junky. They have covered sites in the back and that was really in sad condition. People not friendly. The most level sites and away from the extended stay campers was only 30 AMPs and needing 50 amps we was close to the very run-down area. The noise from the highway, trains and all the extended stay campers driving up and down the road help made this stay unpleasant. Would only stay here again in an emergency and only for one night. The extended stay campers do not obey the rules and they make you feel you are invading their space. The sites are very narrow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is more of a long term camper park. It is not well kept up with weeds everywhere. We were here for a month and will never go back. They have a pool and hot tub but while we were there they did not have the hot tub heated so it turned an ugly green. Would not recommend this park to anyone unless you need a long term place close to Waco. They charged $0.15/KWH for their electric which ended up costing us more than our house for a month. If you can, go somewhere else. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is so close to the interstate the noise is really bad. It is not really clean appearing either. Sort of like you get what you pay for. Would search for other options if we returned to the area. Management not overly friendly either. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campsites were easily accessed. All the hookups were good. The advertisement says they have Wi-Fi, but it is so weak we were not able to access it at all in the 3 days we were here. The owner even said it was so weak we would probably not be able to get on. The sites are graveled but level. This is an adult park. There is a pool but no playground equipment for children. There was a lot of highway noise, train noise, and on Friday night, a lot of raceway noise! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The office was not staffed when we arrived nor most of the time we were there. After waiting we were checked in by a teenager. When hooking up we discovered that the sewer pipe was filled to the top. When we finally found him again he said it was normal. When we tried to dump, it backed up. We were again searching for someone to resolve the issue. When we left we had to move to another space to dump. Sunday night there was a big noisy party at the residence. It went on until well after 1 am. When we mentioned this to the owner he was unaware of any party as he was away. The pool and spa were locked, although we were told they were available. Upkeep of the sites is poor. Mostly permanent residents. Sites were relatively level and permanent sites were neat. We did eventually talk to the owner who offered us a free night for our next visit. We will not return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park gave the impression that it was in financial difficulties. Men's toilet had dried waste on the toilet seat. Only two men's toilets for the park. Two men's showers one of which was not working. The one that was had a shower head that was stuck on three lines of spray. A terrible shower. I will not stay here again. Wi-Fi down but not told about that fact until paid and staying for the night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As we were on our way south, this was an ideal two-night stop for us, easy off and easy onto I-35. The owner checked us in and was very pleasant and accommodating. We have a very long rig and he put us in a pull-through site that worked well. Breakfast at the I-35 Cafe was delicious and reasonably priced. Interstate highway was right there, but the noise was not intrusive. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice park and very nice people managing it. They have a cafe on site for breakfast and dinner meals. We arrived just at closing time for the dinner meal. The gentleman checking me in asked if the ladies in the cafe would stay late and allow us to eat after we finished checking in and got parked. The very nice ladies running the cafe agreed to stay late for us. The meal was very good and at a very good price, a 50 foot walk from our RV site. The site we were in was level and long. We have a 40 foot 5er, with an 8' motorcycle trailer behind it, and my wife was driving our Subaru wagon. All of it fit onto our site easily. Made for an easy in and out one night stay. There are two truck stop fuel centers within 1 mile of the park, on the same outer road as the park, very easy access. There was some road noise from I-35, being the park is very close to the highway, and we were in a site up front. The bathroom was somewhat small, 2 stalls, 2 showers, but very clean, well stocked and everything was in good working order. Good water pressure. The sites are laid out nicely; hookups are lined up with RV hookups. No cable TV, BUT, for $23 and a one night stay, it is the best deal going. If you're on I-35 and need a place to stop for the night in the vicinity of Waco, I-35 RV Park is the place to go. I would/will stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is very close to I-35 with lots of noise from trucks. Sites are partial gravel and grass with holes and standing water when it rains. The roads in the park are "blacktop" and wide enough for big rigs. Many long terms in the rear of the park away from the noise. This park is only good for an overnight stay on the way south/north. Many other RV parks in the area that might be better. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Located adjacent to I-35 which generates some noise, but it is very tolerable. The sites are generally level, but may require small adjustments. Trees between sites can interfere with slide-outs, but there is ample room to move forward or aft to allow normal slide movement. Rate reflects a group rate for 10+ rigs. We camped with our travel group and found the group facilities to be clean with cooking and refrigeration amenities for our group of 30+ very pleasant. No charge for the group room if you have 10 or more rigs. Some permanent residents, but they are located away from the normal travelers. Most sites were pull through with plenty of room to get situated. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here with a group of friends. None of us could access the internet. We inquired at the office and were told it sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't. We were camped for 4 nights and it never worked. The sites were level and there were lots of trees. Some of the trees could interfere with slides. We have three slides and had to watch carefully how we parked so we could use our slides. We did not use the laundry facilities, showers, or swimming pool. It has easy access to Waco. Being close to the interstate I was worried about road noise but we were not bothered with the noise at night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We wanted to stop & see the museum in Waco - this park was convenient. The park was clean & neat, with lots of shade trees, but the owner knew which would work with our satellites and still give us afternoon shade. Very nice! The sites are long, the interior roads are well paved, the baby goats are fun - be sure to take some bread to attract them. We went to West for dinner at the Czech-American restaurant. Yum. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owners are helpful and friendly. The main complaint is that the front part of the space I stayed in was much lower than the back and the passenger side was lower than the driver's side; therefore I had to leave my front wheels off of the ground to get level and getting level was not easy. Its main advantage is that it is right by the interstate, but with the traffic noise, then that also be one of its main liabilities. There are more sites farther back, so if you are a light sleeper, you probably want to request one of the rear sites. Some of its biggest positives are the excellent pool and game room. Another big positive is the fact that they have a RV repairman right on the grounds who charges a reasonable rate for his work. The reasonable price and easy access make it a good value for an overnight stay. I would stay here again if passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice park, especially for an overnight. The fact that they have a cafe on the grounds made breakfast before getting back on the road a snap. The staff was great. The grounds were clean, the roads were wide enough for a big rig towing, and the sites were long enough that we did not have to un-hook. If we come back to this area we will definitely come back to this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice overnight park with friendly staff and a bonus - a good restaurant that serves dinner and breakfast in the park. Looks like they are remodeling the restrooms, but they are still small. Another bonus is that one of full time residents runs a mobile RV repair service; we had some electrical problem - which he solved (reasonably). This was our fourth overnight at this park - (we like the no cooking feature). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park manager was extrememly rude as we were considered "fulltimers" paying by the month. He caters to the overnight rver's and treats the monthlies like dirt. I was appalled at his utter rudeness to me, and we moved to a different campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 6 / 10 ]
This is a convenient park for those people passing through. It's huge, and pretty well kept. There are quite a few full-timers in this park. It's right on the I-35 service road north of Waco near Elm Mott, TX. Sites are gravel, wide and level. Staff are very helpful and friendly. The little cafe is nice to have and the ladies running it are a hoot. Bathrooms/Showers are small and need significant updating. Pets are welcome so long as they are on a leash and you pick up after them. Highway noise is present but not really too noticeable. The park is very safe. Price was also fair. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed one night on our way to winter in the Rio Grand Valley. This is a very clean park with great customer service. The laundry room was clean and they offered a breakfast and supper in their hall for a small fee. The wifi worked very good. This was the second time we stayed in this park and will continue to stay here on our trip south each winter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Arrived at closing time. Was met by owner that led us to site. Told us cafe opens @ 06:30 enjoy our stay and we can pay when we are ready to leave. Next day showed me around. Very friendly. Clean, well kept campground. Will stay here on all trips thru area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is just north of Waco. Check there for other reviews. New owner 2 years ago. She was very friendly and helpful. Told us about some of the changes that she has made and plans to improve. It is an older park that needs cleaning up. There are quite a few permanent units, but the sites are, for the most part, fairly neat. The sites are gravel; ours was level. Some of the sites have some shade. We ate at the little on-site restaurant and the food was good. It is on the interstate, so some of the sites are close and noisy. Our site was well removed, and we could not hear it. One area, well removed from the rest of the park, has covered sites--which sounds nice for hot weather and hail storms, but they were messy and dirty. I would not consider this a destination, but fine for visiting the area or overnight. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We spent one night here. The brand new large pool was open, but cold, and the hot tub was barely warm. The park is still under construction and has gravel drives. Our site was not level for our hydraulic jack to work by themselves. So we used extra blocks and our steps were 30 inches off the ground. The buildings seemed new or at least remodeled. Out over night site was very narrow and would not allow us to open our awning. Management was nice. Would not recommend more than one night unless can get a wider site. It is close to Waco though. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We use this campground for overnights stays. Park staff is friendly and the park is kept clean. Most sites are heavily shaded - not good for satellite reception. Although close to I-35, road noise was not bothersome. Navigating the interior roads with our 43' motorhome was tight and not a major problem. We will continue to use this campground for overnight stays. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is just off the Interstate but is really quiet. Park management is really great, staff is friendly and they help you to your site. Good Sam's rate was used. The small on-site restaurant was really convenient and had good meals. They have some goats and other animals in a corral, fun to watch. Nice level sites and maintenance was taking care of areas where recent rain had washed out some of the gravel. We plan to stay again when we visit Waco. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very large park, and appears to be fairly new. It is easy to access from I-35. The staff was very friendly and showed us to the site. We were only staying one night, so the narrowness of the sites was not a problem. Our RV refused to start the following morning, and we were unable to get a tow until late afternoon. The owner was very helpful is trying to find us a Ford dealer that would repair our rig. We had to leave our tow dolly there overnight, and upon our return they refused to accept any payment for their trouble, and the extra power we used. There were several seasonal units throughout the park. They have a nice pool, 2 laundry sites and 2 restrooms--even a small cafe right on site. We will stay again when traveling in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, and our kitty enjoyed watching the ducks on the pond out our back window. Our 39' 5th wheel and extra car did fit in the site. All sites are gravel, and there are a lot of weeds in and around many of the sites. The covered RV sites are an interesting idea and probably nice in summer, although their size and complete lack of landscaping made them look more like covered storage than camping sites. We didn't try the cafe as we had business in town. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The roads are paved but the sites are gravel. There was an ant nest at the base of our water connection and the faucet almost touched the ground. There are trees but we found a hole for our satellite. This park works as an overnight stop while traveling but I would not want to stay for any length of time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice,clean, and friendly rv park. It is located near one of the best steak houses in Texas, Heitmiller's. Also meals are available at the Rv park Dining area. Propane is available also. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I called on Friday morning to see if they had a space available for Friday night and Saturday night. They said they did. I told them it would be late when we got there. They said no problem, just call when we got close to town. Well, as things would have it, we left two hours later than we had planned. I called when I was an hour away, to let them know that it would be close to 10:30 p.m. when we would be arriving. They gave me directions, told me where to find a site, and we would settle up in the morning. They also thanked me for calling. When we got there, I found a pull-thru site, and before I could get out of the truck, we were met by someone on a golf cart and told us about breakfast in the cafe. I thought this was a nice gesture. When I went to pay up in the morning, I took my TACO Discount Card, since they accept that discount. They guy thought that the TACO Discount Card was a coupon, and threw it away. Glad TACO gives you two cards. I should have brought them my Good Sam's Card. They also accept that discount.The nightly rate of $22 was before any discounts. If you pay be credit card, they add an extra $1.00 per night. We paid cash. They have signs posted in the office that read if you check in before 2:00 p.m., you are charged a $1.00 an hour for every hour before 2:00 p.m. and if you check out later than 11:00 a.m., you are charged a $1.00 per hour after 11:00 a.m. The say they have WiFi. The signal is so weak, you can't connect to the internet. No cable, but you can get local channels with your antenna. Restrooms/Showers are small--two stalls each and only one sink, at least in the men's. Could have been a little cleaner, and a little bigger. Also, no paper towels to dry your hands. They have an air dryer, but I could not get it to work. There are no trash cans that I could see in the park. But, they did have wire cages for their guests to put there aluminum cans in everywhere in the park. We brought our trash back home. Interstate noise is heard everywhere in the park, hence the name I-35 RV Park. Also, you can hear the race cars from the race track a mile south of the RV Park. When we were leaving, I was hooking up the trailer to the truck, when a woman on a golf cart came around and reminded me that check-out was at 11:00 a.m. I check the time--it was 11:10 a.m. I guess they are real sticklers on the check-in/check-out time. I don't think that we will be back. He have family that lives in the Waco area, and we will look into other RV parks in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is a dump. We do not recommend this park to anyone. It is poorly managed and maintained. Sites were full of weeds. There was no grass or shade trees to speak of. The website for this park is very deceiving. In our opinion, there is really not a nice park in the Waco area. Unless you have business in the area, we do not recommend staying at any park in the Waco area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is under new management and they are making a lot of improvements. We have stayed here twice in the last month. There is brand new pool and hot tub, newly setup game room. Cafe on site that offers breakfast variety daily ($5.00). Occasionally they will offer supper depending on special events, etc. During weekend after 4th of July (due to 4th rainout) the owners offered complimentary hamburgers & hot dogs to everyone (cook your own at the pool patio) along with trimming, chips, etc. In addition they had a great fireworks display. Owners are very friendly and encourage children and pets. Very quiet, clean park. Our children brought their bikes and the owner aired up their tires for them. Goat petting area along with ducks and several ponds throughout campground. We will definitely stay at this park again. RV repairs available on-site. Gravel sites but paved roads. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have a dually/36' high-profile fifth wheel. Our pull-through site was adequate but needed a lot of levelling. Heavy rain just before we arrived and park was flooded in parts which didn't help levelling. Not a very tidy looking site but the staff were friendly and helpful. Traffic noise from nearby Interstate. Waco itself is a dump and not a destination resort! Wouldn't go out of our way to visit this park again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stopped at this park on our way to South Padre. This park is easily accessible from the Interstate. The grounds seemed to be well kept, but the restrooms were not very clean. There were no trees to speak of, and we felt like we were too cramped. We will leave this park for others to enjoy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One of the nicest overnight parks I have ever stayed at. Brand new pool and spa plus great areas for dogs. Very pet friendly with a petting zoo and nice owners that make sure you are happy. Highly recommend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access off I-35. Friendly staff. Very helpful. Escort you to your site. Full hookups. Choice of 30 or 50 AMP. Large sites. I drive a 38' RV pulling a car and did not have to unhook on the site I was given. Convenient little restaurant on park that provided good food at a great price. Convenient LP available at park entrance. Great place to stay for overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park has easy access from I-35, but I was disappointed with the facilities. Restrooms were no cleaner than a gas station and hardly any trees. The web photos are deceiving, and set false expectations for the possibility of finding shade. Other then filthy restrooms, the park seemed to be well kept. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you're traveling through Central Texas, this is the place to stay! They have well maintained roads, immaculately kept grounds and great, clean facilities. In addition, this park has lots of trees and at least 20 covered RV spaces. Unique to any other area park, they now offer on-site cafe service for breakfast and dinner seven days a week. They also have on-site RV repair by a highly qualified technician. Propane is the lowest in the area and their camping prices are still the best in Central Texas. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We came to the I-35 RV Park for an eight-month stay while doing work at the Waco Airport. This is the cleanest, best laid-out, safest, least expensive park we have ever stayed at, and we have stayed in parks all over the country as we travel and work. The owners are pleasant, friendly and very helpful. They are constantly working on the facility to keep it clean and well-maintained. Just before we arrived in November they had just finished paving all the interior roads. The sites are level and graveled. We stayed in the back under the cover which helps protect our rig from the elements. We will be leaving in June for another job in Florida, we only wish we could take this park with us! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just Passing Through...I've come to truly enjoy I-35 RV Park, Inc located in Waco, Texas off of I-35; which is a great, convenient location that is close to everything. Registering was fast and easy and they gave us the option to be close to the front or half a mile back closer to the water and animals and less noise from the highway. Driving through the nicely landscaped entrance I noticed that this park was amazing and had many amenities. I've enjoyed everything from petting farm animals, good stock tank fishing, places to walk, ride our bikes, explore the woods, surf the web without being bothered, free local calls to use at our convenience and a great book exchange for reading. They have around twenty covered roofs that are 60 ft long which are big enough to contain your RV, a boat, vehicles and such. Their clubhouses have kitchens; they have RV storage that are priced well,a real nice laundry room, vending machines, propane and ice for sale, nice showers/restrooms, a dump station, and I heard they are still updating things. As much as we have traveled with my husband being a welder and myself in the military, we have seen many places and experienced quite a few RV parks. Never before have my husband and I felt more at home and enjoyed such an RV park like this one before. With being there only a few days I've realized that not only did we enjoy the people and our stay; but, I'll always remember the owners to have been nice, helpful, and fun. I had an "Awesome" experience and would definitely come back if in the area again. Thanks...We had a great stay! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Very easy access on and off I35 but you do hear the traffic at night. Have a fishing
pond. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This superb RV Park continues to amaze me. Already the best in the area, the owners
continue to invest in quality infrastructure improvements and service. I've personally witnessed their improvement process. They've nearly doubled their spaces from last year to 215 and added numerous covered pull-throughs. A newly constructed laundry and bath facility is superbly designed and more than accommodates the expansion. In addition to their four large meeting facilities, they also have instant phone sites and a modem friendly room as well. Their existing well maintained paved roads are a plus and will be enhanced by the paved additions. Many spaces are shaded by beautiful native trees or their fast growing mature "Austree" deciduous trees. Propane is the lowest in the area and their camping prices are still the best in Central Texas! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

For the money ($14.40 w/Good Sam--$16 w/o), this park rules! Fairly easy access off I-35, on access road. Even when we pulled up after 8pm, the host (maybe owner) drove down from the house in his golf cart to check us in--also showed us to our spot. They don't accept credit cards (to keep their prices down), but for that rate, we were happy to pay cash. Spaces are REALLY long, resulting in our trailer being several feet from the road! The bathroom left something to be desired--somewhat cold, not very light. The phone/modem location is in it's own little built-on room--providing 2, each in little stalls. They also have a very large 'leave 1 / take 1' book & magazine bookcase in same location. We were alone in there, and able to surf & collect our email at our leisure for the first time ever while camping! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This RV park just gets better with time! The park is relatively new and the owners are still putting their resources into infrastructure improvements and new site development. They have well maintained paved roads and facilities in a clean, quiet and safe campground. I will always stay here when in the area. Without question, they are the best. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 10 / 10 ]
Superb campground! I was particularly impressed with the paved roads and immaculately kept grounds. Hundreds of newly planted and established trees and a nicely done entrance with water fountain and flowers.The owners are great and bent over backwards to accommodate my needs. No other park in the area compares. We camped here in a camper.

Very loud with freeway noise. Rude owners. We stopped last fall and were treated very nicely by a fellow who evidently is no longer there. The owners are now doing their own check ins and seemed quite lacking in customer service skills. There is virtually no shade and no landscaping and the neighborhood, junk yards for autos, is quite lacking. If you were to stay here for more then a day I would think the noise would be quite annoying. We camped here in a camper.

A clean place to stop near the interstate and spend the night We camped here in a camper.

Our third stay. Each stay is better as the park continues to improve. We have stayed for multiple nights each time. It is quite. The park is very clean and the staff very helpful. Recommended for a stop over or an extended stay. We camped here in a camper.

Great stop-over park. We have stayed twice. Very friendly staff, we even got shown to our site when we arrived very late by a cheerful staff member who turns out to be a famous author who then kindly gave us an autograph. We camped here in a camper.
[ 10 / 10 ]
New park. Great people. Very neat and clean. Easy access. Highly recommended for BIG rigs. Stayed 6 nites - very little noise even though it's close to the highway. We camped here in a camper.

Excellent, new RV park with new instant phone hook-ups at site. Ask for sites next to large ponds and recreation area. Nice meeting rooms, extremely friendly owners, have stayed a couple of times for several days and highly recommend this park. We camped here in a camper.

Very friendly owners, easy freeway access. Nice new park. We camped here in a camper.
I find it odd that the last review of this COE park was three years ago. The park is well maintained and offers a lot of shaded sites in the hot weather. Bathrooms were clean and serviceable. There is a great boat launch available. We stayed in a pull-through site that required us to unhook our toad and park it in the front of the site because the utilities are located at the very end of the site. So, asking for a pull-through so you don’t have to disconnect a toad doesn’t work with a 40’ motor home. As you drive in, drive directly to the gate. The building near the entrance has nothing to do with this COE park. We would return if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First time at this park. We normally stay at Airport COE Park. This park is right off highway 6. Easy off the highway to the park. The site that we used was level and was paved. The staff were very pleasant and helpful with providing information. The bathrooms were clean but we did not use them. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the worst COE we have ever camped at. The grass is 10" tall around the sites and the bathhouse. We checked in about 7:30 PM and were handed a hang tag and sent on our way - the person at the gate was not very friendly or helpful. Over the air TV was good, and the data card worked well with antenna and amp. Directions to the campground were very vague, and we called the number listed for help and it said it was an invalid number. We then called the reservation number and got a person in Hawaii that could not help with directions at all and gave us the non-working number for us to call. The site we have #12 sloped down from the road and has 30' of gravel down the slope the rest of the site that is level is grass. They are expecting rain, so I hope we can get out when we leave. It has 2 picnic tables under roof an old fire ring and BBQ that were cleaned out. There are a lot of dogs and no one cleans up after them. Be careful on the road because they use it like a racetrack. The power box had a wasp nest in it. We would not camp here again. $18/night is over priced. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A small COE park with 6 full hookup pull through sites with 50A electric, unusual for a COE park. 4 of the 6 pull through sites are open for satellite, but the rest of the sites are mostly in trees. The pull through sites are at right angles to the narrow roads making tight turns for big rigs. Hookups are to the back of the sites, requiring either long hoses or unhooking and parking the towed in front. The $10 is with the Golden Age Passport. Easy access to the park from I-35. There was a lot of road noise in the evening but it quieted down later. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Another nice COE park on Lake Waco. For $10 (Golden Age Passport ) you can't beat it with 30 amp electric and water. There is a dump station. We have stayed here for a few years on our way South. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed in this park several times and it is a very good campground. We had a full hookup site so we have never used the restrooms. It is convenient to Waco, where we have relatives and friends and we stop off here for a night after traveling about 150 miles, so it makes for an easy day. I have never had issues with anything in this campground. People working at the entrance check-in booth were friendly and helpful. Was able to put my direct tv dish up and it was just like being at home. With the senior pass rate, this is a bargain. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is another very nice COE park. Although they list pull through sites, you need to unhook because the sites are not long enough and entry is at a sharp angle. 50 amp sites are listed as pull through. Warning: The map shows the park at the wrong location. The directions are correct. I used three different GPS programs including Trailer Life and Streets and Trips and the all give the wrong directions and have the park located on the wrong side of HWY 6. The park is located SOUTH of WY 6, not north. North is a gated community with poor turn around for a 40 foot coach. We finally called and got the correct directions from a park employee. If heading east on HWY 6, the park is located to your right and is an easy entry. If heading west on HWY 6, take the off ramp to the right for Midway Park. Continue straight ahead and the road bears left UNDER HWY 6 to the park. Sites 1 to 4 are great with a lake front access but only 30 amps. Long level parking areas. We like #2. Large covered picnic areas with tables on slaps. Fire rings and free standing BBQ. Lots of shade trees. Nice boat ramp. Very nice, helpful COE employee. We only stayed one nite but would recommend this park for long or short stays. Wish the Federal Parks would take a lesson from the COE parks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Core of Engineers campground, so Golden Eagle pass cuts price in half. Very nice campground with large treed sites. No WiFi. Lake access. GPS was wrong. Access is right off Hwy 6 on east side of Lake Waco. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Midway Park is very conveniently located off Hwy-6 and close to services. The restrooms are very old, open to the cold, and when we were here, closed due to broken pipes. There are about 6 sites that offer 50amp and sewer. This set of sites is the closest to the highway and not near as pretty as the other sites. However, we prefer the convenience of a sewer on a 2 week stay. The pads are concrete and level, but not all in good shape. They do have nice picnic areas and grills. We have stayed here several times. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice COE park on Lake Waco. We stayed here last year and it will be a regular stop when we are in this area. Clean site on the lake with others in a wooded area. Water and electric only in our area. There is a newer area with pull through sites that may have sewer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice small COE park about 6 miles west of IH35-very easy to get to from the freeway. Sites have gravel pads some with covered picnic tables. Some of the camp sites are located along the lake and I suppose you could pull your boat up on the lake shore near these sites. Most sites have full to partial shade. Nice stop for an overnight stay, but I did notice some road noise. We got a site without reservations during the week, but that would probably be impossible on the weekends especially during the summer. Rate is America the Beautiful pass. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice COE campground. The lakeside sites are really nice and the others are back in trees for shade. We chose a lake side for the satellite dish. Some of the sites are not too level but the lake side ones are. Still a great deal. The price is for the 1/2 off Golden Age Passport. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very interesting for a COE park. It's small and right in town. However, it's surprising quiet and has plenty of shade. There are some full hookup sites and some pull throughs. The majority, however, are water and electricity only. It's very easy to find and maneuver. One would almost need a reservation during weekends and holidays because it's so accessible that it fills up quickly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our back-in concrete pad was level and had a parking area for our toad. The park is older and a little shabby around the edges but clean and well maintained. Mostly permanent residents but RVs were in good repair and all sites were relatively clean and kept-up. The owner was friendly and helpful. No cable TV (owner says he is in dispute with Time-Warner). Owner put us on a site we could access satellite TV but most sites are blocked by trees. Good Verizon signal. Campground is next to the interstate and the noise level is high at all hours of the day. We camped here in a Motorhome.
OMG - this is a surprise and a pleasure! We left north Texas in an effort to outrun a snow/freezing rain forecast for Christmas Day. Two Ft. Worth area RV parks did not respond in 24+ hours, but when we called "Park Mark" we not only spoke to a live voice (he carries around his cell phone at all times!). He was willing to find us a place (pull thru, 50 amp, level)and gave us excellent directions. He wouldn't even take our credit card number to hold the space - his word was all we needed! He met us at the office, unhooked our car, got into the RV and helped my husband pull into not only a level concrete site, but one that is covered! Our first in over 8 years of RVing! More cable TV channels than any park, maximum bars for free wireless internet, and a happy, interesting park owner on site at all times! We couldn't have a better park! All of the residents are friendly, relatively new RVs, and exceptionally clean and neat! Love the "Statue of Liberty" which helps locate the park! We would stay here again and wish we could stay longer! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very tough access from freeway and very tight roads ( lots of people parked across them ), common among older parks, along with very through pull-thru's and 90% of the park taken by permanent dwellers ruins the appeal of the big trees and lots of shade. Would only stay in an emergency. We camped here in a camper.
Park was hard to find and way off the beaten path. Most residents in the park look like they are permanent. Sites were gravel and unlevel. Pretty shoddy at the best. Only nice thing about the park was the manager. Probably wouldn't stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were very disappointed in the rv park. Most of the people staying at the park were living there full time. It was hard to find. The facilities and buildings were old. The sites were not level and not concrete. The pool was an above ground pool and was not maintained. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
No shade available. No meeting room or activities. Pool was not available for use due to the cold weather. Gravel sites with good grass and table. Washers/Dryers in unheated building with door open. Would stay again, but not for long. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here in August and the temperature hovered around the 100 degree mark all month. One week it was over 100 degrees every day. There is very little shade here so our air conditioner ran 24/7, and it was till over 80 degrees in our rig. The park owners were very friendly and they put us along the fence where we had the most chance of shade in the late afternoon. They have added about six new sites along the fence line at the rear of the park and these are the ones to get if you want any shade. The other shady sites are already used by permanent residents. While we were there, the owners were putting the finishing touches on a new pond. Not sure if they are going to stock it with fish or if it's just for looks. They have also added a new above ground pool that looked very inviting after a blistering hot day, however, by the time I got home from work, I was too tired to use it. Beware of fire ants. While my husband was outside rearranging our sewer hookups he didn't notice he was standing on an ant hill (the tall grass had hidden it) and by the time he felt the first sting his feet were covered in ants. He suffered 42 ant bites and his feet were swollen for several days. Other from that our stay was nice enough. The monthly rate was $275 plus metered electric. When I left, our electric bill was $207 from running the air conditioner but the heat would have been unbearable without it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
PROS> Extremely friendly and helpful staff, level sites, free cable TV, free Wi-Fi, laundry, small camp store, small golf driving range, plenty of room for pets, and located in a quiet, rural setting adjacent to a nice pond in which fishing is permitted. CONS> The facilities here are very old and are in dire need of a regular maintenance schedule. This park is well off the beaten path and is a bit hard to find (our GPS didn't recognize the address and the staff talked us in via our cell phone). There are many permanent residents here, most of whom work locally and none of whom occupy RV's that have been recently washed, waxed, painted or cleaned. OVERALL> This is a quaint little park and is very well suited as a home base for exploring Waco and surrounding areas (which is what we did). If you're looking for luxury or status, however, this place won't fit the bill. Our $22.50 rate (RVParkreviews won't let you enter cents) was calculated after applying a Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Living in Virginia, but having family and friends in Central Texas, my wife and I come to
the Waco area two or three times a year. We camped at Quail Crossing twice in 2002 and twice in 2003. If we can get a spot, we plan to stop there the next time we are in the Waco area. The fishing pond is well stocked and has super fishing. The campground is close to Crawford, home of President Bush and Lake Waco which provides facilities for swimming, boating and fishing. Directions to campground are clear and easy to follow. The location is quiet and is the perfect spot for families who want some space for their children to play and maybe take a nature hike. We camped here in a Campground Cabins.

Dirty and dilapidated are the two words that come to mind about this campground. It is hard to get to and is actually an old flea market that went out of business. Their web page is much better than the campground and that isn't saying much. Don't bother stopping here! We camped here in a camper.
This park is old and not a typical COE that I have visited over the years. Lots of shade by the Cedar scrub trees. Lots of bugs especially spiders. Webs are created by the minute. Great Lake views, some covered concrete picnic tables. Not maintained at all. Bathrooms are bug infested, hot, and they are pit toilets. Great place if you are going to boat and so use the day resources around the corner. Its an OK place for a couple days. Oh, and Electrical was pretty low voltage wise. We had campers next door and when their air conditioner came on and my air was on the voltage went to less than 108 volts. I can only image if there were any more campers on the same circuit. Will go back but will be well prepared with bug spray, brooms to knock down webs, plenty of candles, foggers, and a high pressure washer to wash the picnic tables, shelter, and concrete slab off before we use it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an odd park and may not be for everyone. Situated well off the beaten path it has plenty of trees. Perhaps too many. Could be difficult to maneuver in places. The road in takes one through a rather rough area. Returning from town at night, which is a bit of a drive, we encountered some undesirable young folks obstructing the highway who had obviously been partying it up a lot. Park roads have some potholes. It rained a great deal while we were there and many of the sites on the lower area, which is where we were camped, were under water. Although the extent of this rainfall was unusual it was still clear that the sites on the lower area were prone to flooding. Sewer system must be inadequate, as it backed up during the rain storm. Not only were we unable to dump our tanks, but the back pressure filled them to the rim of the toilet. Nasty!!! Staff were very nice and helpful. Park rules seem to be rather lax. A large number of long term campers. We had the impression that had it not rained there might have been some noise. All that said, the pleasant rural atmosphere away from the highway is attractive. We are undecided about returning however. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our rate reflects a $2/night fee for 50 amp service. Park is an older park with mostly permanent residents and is off the beaten path so it was very quiet. Sites were level with concrete pads and grassy area. Wi-Fi was adequate, good cable, nice swimming pool and good amount of shade. There are two reasons that we did not rate the park higher: 1) The water comes from a well source and had an extremely strong sulfur smell. 2) The back fence, of an otherwise nice pet area, did not meet the ground. Over half of it was 12 inches high of the ground and even a medium size dog could easily get out and into the large pasture that is adjacent. Park is very well located for Baylor Games or any other activity in the Waco area. Water odor is a deal breaker for my wife to return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is a little off the freeway but rewards you with trees and QUIET! There are level concrete sites, easy in and out even for our 40 ft MH and tow, a nice pool and a large dog play area. It's in a rural area which is nice too. Definitely worth the drive off the freeway. Price reflects Good Sam discount. We will definitely come here again. Great overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful trees, sites paved and level and everything worked. Friendly, clean and quiet. Not a resort destination, but yet an extremely pleasant place to stay. Paved pads were a bit small in our area of the park, our leveling jacks were right on the corners. A bit off the beaten path, but we liked that. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I like this park. It is shady and quiet. Nice concrete level sites away from the full timers. I use this park as an over nighter and will return again. A few miles off the Interstate but worth it. Picnic tables would be nice also. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wide sites with concrete pads. 1/3 permanents: all with neat, clean sites. New bath house/laundry under construction. Great pool. Fenced dog park. Friendly owners on site. Came for four days and stayed two weeks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stay here on a fairly regular basis to handle family business and are always greeted with a "welcome home" attitude by the owners. They are very flexible and cooperative, and continuously working to improve the property. The sites are big enough to offer some privacy and the concrete pads are nice and level. The Wi-Fi works really well. The grounds have many mature trees and grassy areas. We'll be back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Shower/bathroom building was not available. A smaller one was available, but very old/not clean. There is good shade "down the hill", but no spots are available there and the trees, while there, are thinly spaced above. The "above" lots are well spaced and easy to navigate. There is a pet pen for exercise. There is no "Riverview" and private property prevents any view when walking the road. We were unable to get a cable connection and permanent residents nearby said it wasn't reliable. Roads were smooth on the hill entrance. I will try elsewhere, but could camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very reasonable, cash or check only. Nice concrete pads with gravel and grass. About 25% full timers in the full time area. You do go down a few country roads but easy on and off. Excellent over nighter and I guess the river is close but I didn't try to walk to it. I would use this park again. No speed bumps. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We ignored the "1" review (rant?) and went with the two "10" reviews, and we were happy. This place is funky, but pretty well-maintained. Grass is mowed, sites are large and level, pool is clean, dog run was large and right next to a pasture full of beautiful horses and their foals. A nice treat. Gal who greeted us couldn't have been friendlier and the price can't be beat. We did a bunch of laundry, and it worked OK--machines aren't sparkling by any stretch but they did the job and were on the honor system so no worries about quarters. There are lots of folks living here, but we found it to be a very quiet and enjoyable park a bit off the beaten path. Don't know if there were showers/laundry. Oddly enough, we weren't given any instructions or papers or even a receipt (we paid online) upon check in. The only concern I'd have is if it rained a lot--you have to drive over grass to get on and off the concrete pad. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I didn't give this place a chance. The signage on country road left a lot to the imagination. The entry road said no trucks; I'm a truck. I would expect to see a lot of people from "Deliverance." To provide even more concern, the web site is questionable. I would not even go close to this place again. Don't really know the rate. We did not stay at this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean, quiet, great dog run area. would come back again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

I stayed here 2 nights in my travel trailer while visiting a relative in nearby Robinson. This park was clean, easy to find, and about 10 minutes from family I was visiting. The owners were very friendly and helpful. I stayed in the lower section,which was wooded and peaceful. As a woman traveling alone, I felt very safe. The park was very quiet. My site was wooded and almost felt like staying in a state park. I will definitely return here! Thanks, Connie and Skipper, for a delightful visit! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed here Nov 2005. We normally stay in Texas State Parks but wanted to visit Waco and be close to town. Perfect place. Very close to town. Friendly owners/managers/employees. Clean and quiet camp grounds. No sites are riverview since Brazos river is across the street behind private houses but access to river for fishing. Will probably stay again in the next few months on another Waco visit. There are a several long-term customers but most of those trailers where empty our entire 3 day visit. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This campground treated our group like dirt. We weren't parked near each other like promised. We were told their "meeting room" would be free after we checked in but when we checked out they charged us $80 for 2 days. The "room" was a drafty run down dirty, shed like building. The manager was very rude. We will never return and recommend other groups avoid this place at all costs. We camped here in a camper.

A long ways from freeway, hard to get to. Unfriendly owners don't like overnighter's , caters mainly to permanents and rallies. We camped here in a camper.
Beautiful campground, nice level sites near the lake with hookups. The restrooms were a bit on the tacky side -- needed some updating and the toilet in the handicap restroom sprayed water all over the floor when it was flushed. Spent only one night, but would stay again. Gates are locked at 10 p.m. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the fourth COE park around Lake Waco. Small but appears to be recently created or renovated. Most sites have covered metal tables with neat concrete and graveled areas around. While some trees, few provided shade on campsite but sites are large and easily accessed (no trees to navigate around). $10 fee is Golden Age Pass price. We would certainly return. Nine rating is due to restrooms a bit far from some of the sites, especially lake side. BE SURE to follow directions from recreation.gov web site, as some GPS may take you over McLaughlin Rd now under water. Also, at the time of this review, three of the four COE parks around Waco Lake were mis-labeled at the recreation.gov site. The coordinates for Speegleville took you to Airport COE park. Check satellite maps around Waco Lake for clarity. Good TV and broadband card reception. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
