9 Parks near Alvord, Texas
Oct 2014 - $35.00
Totally adequate and pleasant. It's not a resort, but we weren't looking for one. Stayed one night only. Good Sam discount. Were we staying to visit in Dallas rather than passing through, it would be fine for several days or a week. Restrooms/laundry were exceptional for cleanliness. - HollyLouise

Nice CG. Far enough away from the interstate that noise was not a problem. Big grassy area for our dog. Many perm residents but all sites neat and tidy. A good stop. From the north was a bit hard to find the entry, from south no problem. Would stay here again if passing thru. - RedHorse1

This is our second time here in 4 months. This park is located right off of Hwy 287 and convenient for travelers needing an overnight stop. This park would also be good for people who need a place to stay for awhile. Sites are long enough to keep your tow attached. The hostess is very nice and helpful. She goes out of her way to be accommodating. Although this park does not have cable, we had no problems picking up over 10 channels with our antenna. Also, this park has a by nice pavilion area. Probably one of the cleanest parks we've stayed in. Would stay here again. - A & K

Nice quiet park. Park host is working hard to build up business. Free laundry was nice. Clean, tidy park. Very close to railroad with frequent train traffic. Easy on/off 287. - Barbiejen68

We arrived late and only were able to stay overnight, but the park was a convenient stop right off the highway just north of Fort Worth. We could see highway traffic going by, but there were enough trees that the sight and sound didn't disturb us. We only interacted with the staff on the phone and online, but they were very helpful, giving us the code to the showers and free laundry and telling us which spots were available. The park was a little difficult to navigate as we arrived in the dark, but we found a cozy pull-through nearly alone on our row and spent a quiet night here on our journey. - Ardent Camper

Price reflects Passport America. Lot of seasonal or full-time residents, but a great surprise. What a PPA campground is expected to be like with the price. Not real fancy, but acceptable. Manager is great. Makes a nice place for an overnight stop. Campsites are not real level, but I was able to put a block on one side and level immediately. Free laundry, showers, and bath. Give it a try, we liked it. Manager said a lot of oil workers stay here, but this is off season. - Tampajohn

Very nice folks Che ked me in and led us to our site. Level pad, gravel. Great power and water with sewage. A bit of noise from the highway but bearable. Wifi was very weak. OK for an overnight stay. - OnNTwo

Not a bad park, but not a great park. It was the right distance along our route and got us northwest of Fort Worth, which is what we were looking for. Plenty of room for our dog to run, and a nice pool for us, both pluses. Plenty of highway noise, but not too bad as close to the road as the park is. Could use a little more maintenance and TLC, but the bathhouses were fine. Staff was very friendly. We'd stay again if we were passing this way. - BamaRambler

This one did not get a 10 because, well, virtually nowhere gets a 10 with me. However given value for buck, $27 with Good Sam discount, there really is nothing to fault with this place. Very impressed with RV supplies & prices at office store. Very reasonable laundry prices. Sites are a mixed bag of pleasant surprises. We were given one with a concrete picnic table & seats plus a raised metal fire thingy. Saw a charcoal smoker at one site. All sites nicely shaded. Lots of semi permanents, all friendly, only one site a bit messy. No it is not a perfect CG. None are. If in need to stop in the area this is the place. - Veebyes

Stayed 1 night, which was OK. Park is old and not well maintained. Ladies bathroom was clean but men's was very dirty. Paid Passport America rate, which the book said $10 but was charged $15, and that was for 30 amp. - 1st time fulltimer

This park is old and in need of updating, but the sites are long and level gravel. We were able to fit on our site (B4)in our 40 footer without unhooking the toad.It it very close to the highway so traffic noise is a factor, but it also is convenient if just passing through like we were. Cable was supposed to be available but ours did not work. Wi-Fi was available but very slow. The rate we paid was with a Passport America membership. We would stay here again if just passing through because it is convenient. - DonnaZ2011

Needed a place to pull off 81/287 for the night. Was good for that. Staff was friendly. Had 50 amp service and CATV. Wi-Fi signal was good, but the connection was super slow and made checking email very tedious. A little noisy from trucks at night. Gravel pads not very wide, slides almost touch neighbors. If you use a GPS, ignore it and just get off the exit for Fruitland RD. It will be right off the exit. Nothing else around, so if you need a place to recharge your batteries, this will work. - metriccruiserguy

We stayed at Paradise RV Park while my husband was working in Bridgeport TX for 1 month. This is a small very quiet park out in the country. It is all gravel and has no shade trees. There is no bath house but there is a washer and dryer available for use. The owners are very nice and the park is clean. There are no frill or extras but I would recommend them if you are in the area and need a quiet nights sleep or work in the area and don't want any drama that comes with some parks. We will use them again if in that area. - okies

21 sites. Amenities: E,W, Dump. Bathroom and shower very dimly lit but clean. Sites with electric have relatively
new 50 amp service. Sites with water are labeled "not potable" but office person said its well water so the city can't label it potable. Site with electric & water are $15 (we had no discount). Verizon 2 bars. Mifi slow. Some sites have shade shelters, no grills. Some sites have tree shade some complete sun. Roads hard packed gravel, sites fairly level. We stayed in site 13, in a 39 ft motor home with well water and50 amp elec. Our Direct satellite TV service excellent. - User2477

Close to home. Nice area on waterfront. Boats pull up to sites. Host is helpful and keeps watch out for others. - Sbates
Nov 2010 - $8.00
The park is a City owned park and has a camp host that stays in the park. The sites have 30 amp but not all have water. The water is non-potable. The water/electric sites are $16 and only electric is $10. They due accept the Access Pass which makes all sites $8. Our Verizon phones had 1XEV with 3 bars and the MI-Fi worked OK but was a little slow. Some sites have awnings and some have tables. NO grills and only rock fire rings at each site. The restrooms/bathhouse appeared to have been replaced but they could have been cleaned a little better. We would stay here again. It is a good place for overnight stay. - TexasRVer

This is a decent city park type campground and is near town and Walmart. The city park looks more like a small fairground and is split into north and south parts by fence, the campground loop is in southern half of park behind city pool. Enter park at large gravel lot adjacent to pool. Showers are in small toilet block in front of community building which is in north half of park, 150 feet from campsites. M/F toilet rooms have 1 shower each, reasonably clean. Don't know about access to pool facilities in season. Sites are electric/water only but there is a dump in the exit of the campground loop. 7 day maximum stay. All sites have satellite views and there are a couple of off air English language TV channels. Good Verizon cell phone and Virgin Mobile (Sprint network) MiFi signals. The train tracks that parallel highway 287 are a couple of hundred yards away and are not too loud, no level crossings nearby to cause use of horn. Highway 287 is further away still and cannot be heard. - readontheroad

As Thousand Trails parks good this is not very will maintained. Sites are grassy and very long. But pool is closed, hot tub closed, no WiFi, no store. All the things that are expected from a Thousand Trails Preserve is missing. Roads are in real bad shape. All of the nicer sites are taken up by long tern residents. Three washers for a park with 290 sites. - Nevadadon
Apr 2016 - $3.00
Rate reflects additional charge for 50A. Very few sites have sewer, but there are available dump stations. The sites in Section 1 are very deep, easy to park long motorhome with toad in front. The hookups are at the very back of the site, so you have to back all the way in or have a very long electric cord and/or water hose. The roads are in passable shape. The campground has a large area of common use (ball fields, pool, etc.) that we did not use, but seems to be well maintained. Lots of longterm renters of the sites, so the campground was not as "friendly" as we have come to like. - pattic777

I have tried this park twice and I am removing it from my "to stay" list.
1 - No cell service. This is hard for us because we use the Thousand Trails on our days off and need to catch up on paperwork. We might be able to let this slide if their wifi EVER worked. They say there is wifi, but it is always down.
2 - Few sites not near lodge. Few 50 amp. hook ups at far rear of site. We have an electric hot water heater, so we like to have 50 amp. We also have 6 kids, so we like to be near the playground and the lodge.
3 - Pool and hot tub are small and closed (at least in March).
4 - The construction is shoddy. A/C are window units cut into the siding. The bathroom stalls are ox board. Even the nice buildings have pieces of siding missing paint messed up.
The park is in 3 sections:
"Hollywood" - is right by the lodge and mostly 50 amp, but it has filled with long-term rentals. They look nice and clean, but are full. There was one 30 amp site available.
"Suburbs" - just around the pond from Hollywood. Very walkable distance, but not visible. Laundry and shower house in the suburbs, as well as a volleyball net. Sites are LONG, but totally grass. 50 Amp was available. But when we went to back up to the hookups, we got nervous about the weight of our rig on the grass and opted for 30 amp in Hollywood because it had gravel.
"Back 40" - best I can tell this was an old, decrepit RV park that Thousand Trails bought out. Its s about a mile from the lodge. It is full of VERY long-term campers. It looks trashy and the dump station was flooded. I think this is only staff that camps here.
The perks - The staff is friendly and accommodating. They are kind of "back woods" folk. They are not grouchy with kids. They have Candy Bingo on Fridays where almost everyone is a winner. They have a game room and cafe. The adult lodge is nice. - mmette00

Small but well cared for campground. My site was flat and level and nicely private. Check in was easy and owner was friendly and helpful. - Janet H
