We use this as an overnight break between Amarillo and Houston (Twice). Tell them you don't want to unhook and they will give you a spot on the end if available. Easy on and off Hwy 287. Very friendly and helpful staff. They suggested a re-route around the construction in Fort Worth. - REO

A great place for a one night stop-over. Everything is neat and clean and the CG is carefully attended to by an owner who apparently lives nearby. The only drawback is the two rest-rooms. Yes, they are spotlessly clean, but they only accommodate one person at a time. If the CG is full, you may have to take a number. To make matters worse the laundry is in the rest-rooms. BTW, the laundry is free to paying guest. Pets OK with plenty of room to walk them. Would visit again. - Rusty Tailpipe

We made reservations online for two nights arriving on a Sunday afternoon. When we arrived, the office was closed and we had no idea where to go. We looked at our confirmation e-mail and it gave the site number, but no other information about the campground (rules, wi-fi password, codes to the restrooms, etc.). Our site was the closest one to the road, so we experienced lots of road noise, but our travel trailer is a hybrid, which has tent ends, so it was probably louder for us than someone in a 5th wheel or motorhome. We were able to get set up and another camper gave us the code to the restrooms so we could get a shower. There is only one ladies and one men's restroom, but they were spotlessly clean, very updated and private, with the shower, toilet and sink all in the same room. This is probably the nicest restroom we have ever encountered in a campground in our travels. There are also two washers and dryers on each side (two each in the ladies and two each in the men's). The washers and dryers were very new, front load machines. The next morning, we went to check in and the very nice lady asked if we hadn't already picked our packet up that she had placed in the mailbox on the side of the office. Of course, not knowing it was there, we hadn't picked it up and in fact, someone else had removed it. She reprinted the information sheets and provided us with everything we needed to know.
We have two small dogs that travel with us and it was a bit difficult to walk them on any grassy area as there were stickers everywhere that got caught in our dog's feet. Just a word of warning for dog owners stopping here.
We would most likely stop here again if we are passing through the area, but would ask for a site closer to the back of the park. - LZee11

We stayed one night at this park while traveling to a destination. The park was not fancy but it was nice and fulfilled our needs. Our site was level enough that we didn't need to unhook our truck from our fifth wheel. Little restaurant close by could walk to. Easy on and off entry from road. Convenient. The park could use a little work but we would stay again and would recommend it for a one night stay. - Bax

Easy access from Hwy 287 and restaurant within 100 yards of campground. Staff super friendly. FHU Pull Thru site was level and long enough so we didn't have to unhook our tow. Electric, water and sewer acceptable. Only con is RV parks sets between Hwy 287 and the busy railroad track. Noise didn't bother us. - LJolly

Park is easy to find the pull into office area could be better. The lady in office very nice. Park is a little hard to navigate because all the roads are gravel/rock with trees close by. The sites are gravel/rocks I had a pull through not very long had to unhook so I would not block the road. Site was not level but for the price it was ok for a over night stay. - Bigdodgediesel

Tired and need an overnight before crossing Dallas; then stay, but know there will be noise from 287. Lady at check in was friendly and if you dont mind grass and not so level space then a big rig can get in and out. Entrance for hwy is tricky so pay attention. - Jimmy Swager

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 was just an overnight stay. Not much better than a Walmart parking but it was quiet. It is a funky, small, rundown place with mostly permanent residents. The lady managing the office was very nice. Greeted us as we arrived and said pick a spot then just come up to the office to register. Doubt that we would stay here again unless just for overnight. - Rick & Karen

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

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

Selma Park is about 4 miles from State Highway 287. As such it is a convenient waystation for us.
1. Park is unkept - grass was knee-high. Sticker-burr grass was everywhere (if you have dogs, don't let them out!). Sites were not level, for the most part, and there was soil erosion in many places that made rig placement difficult.
2. Fire ants everywhere
3. Bathrooms were locked. We don't normally use them, but just fyi.
4. Dump station is a BIG problem. Water wasn't working. Ramp sloped away from the dump hole, so we had to use blocks to level the trailer to get everything out.
5. All the water locations had sign saying non-potable. We had our own, and others posting here said the water was OK, but was well water and as such couldn't be labeled potable. Your call...
6. Host wasn't around -we'll have to mail in our payment because there were no forms, and I won't just leave cash.
The shame of the state of disrepair is that this park has "great bones". The lake is attractive, there's a lot of waterfront, a fishing pier, and sites that are heavily shaded and some that are right out on a peninsula into the lake. This could be a beautiful go-to destination if they would clean it up. - TIN Diesel

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

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

We stayed free thanks to our RV dealer. The sites need more trees to help shade the area. When the temp. is 98 and there is no shade like our recent visit it is almost impossible to keep your RV cool. The area we were in had a lot of full time residents and it looks sort of junky in my opinion. Staff was nice and friendly. All of the other areas were beautiful and appear to be well maintained. Gorgeous view of the lake. Just sad there are not more full hook ups and closer to the activities. Roads are terrible but that seems to be common for Thousand Trails. - True Texas

The Park itself is Not Bad......the condition of repairs is wrong! No Pool (all tore up with no work being done at all), No wi-fi at adult lodge, shade at 50 amp sites is non existent , interior roads need work. Speed limit needs to be enforced of dirt-gravel roads. Quiet at night ....just needs some TLC! - acampingfan

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
