2 Parks near Arlington, Texas
Mar 2016 - $18.00
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the dog park as it is separate for large dogs and small dogs. No agility equipment to get in the way of a good run. Location is nice as it is near lots of restaurants and shopping. Wi-Fi worked great!
The monthly section needs to be cleaned up. Some of the sites are quite trashy. Lots of tarps. Many owners allow their dogs to stay outside and bark and try to chase people that walk by. The rules just need to be enforced and the park would be so much better.

We stayed at the Dallas/Arlington KOA for four months while we were looking for a new house.
The campground is in a flood plain but despite record rainfall, the water in the nearby creek never reached the campground.
The campground overall and the restrooms and showers in particular were always clean.
The pool was very nice.
They had a nice pancake breakfast benefiting the KOA Kids charity on Sunday during the summer.
They placed the long-term campers towards the back of the campground.
All the long-term campers were very friendly and always greeted us when we drove or walked by.
The campground was very quiet; we never experienced any problem with noise.
The playground was nice but pretty basic and perhaps a little "old fashion."
They have two dog parks, one for smaller dogs and the other for larger dogs.
While we don't have a dog we did hear a neighbor complain that some of the campers were not cleaning up after their dogs.
This same neighbor told us that when they complained to the owner he wasn't receptive to their concerns.
They were having trouble with the Wi-Fi while we were there.
There were several days when it wasn't working at all.
We used it mostly for email and reading the electronic copy of the newspaper.
When it was working it wasn't super fast.
After some frustration we began using our own wireless "Mifi" for the newspaper.

This is a very average to slightly below average park. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder of course - but there is no beauty here for me. I was surprised at how cramped it is based on previous reviews. My pull-through was long enough but I couldn't reach the sewer connection and have my truck hooked at the same time - so I had to bring out the extension. My living room roadside slide was hanging over my neighbors outside living area and his huge grill/smoker was right in front of my electrical/water access and I could barely open the door. All hookups are close to the living space of the neighboring site - and I mean close. There are dogs chained outside the rigs all up and down the row I was parked on so taking my dogs out raised a ruckus and many owners stayed inside and let their dogs lunge and howl. The small fence posts that are rebarred into the ground on the perimeter of my site are pulled out and buckled - creating a nightmare for pulling into and out of the site without puncturing a tire. After I got in and checked my truck I saw that the right rear tire was about 2" from 2 large, sharp screws sticking out of the posts which were meant to hold two of the posts together. Lots of longer term people with junk around their rigs. Barking dogs. Tight spaces. Not a very nice place. I would never come back if in the area. - kdlee747

Considering the obvious impression that 90% of the RVs here appear to be permanent, this is actually a pleasant little diversion if you just want to get away for a couple of days and don't want to drive for hours to do it. It's a nice park, well-maintained, tucked away in a residential neighbor hood, though you'd never know it once there. We just dropped in and they accommodated us without any notice, assigning us a pull-through site with full hook-ups. While I generally avoid parks with an excess of permanent residents, we felt a sense of community pride as the sites were groomed, many with flowers. The park is not set-up in the all-too-common parking lot arrangement, instead having winding paths and a more organic arrangement, making for a more leisurely evening stroll. Best of all, the staff is a hoot and enormously helpful, which always make one wanting to come back for more. - ajmurray

Very friendly people. Had no trouble at check in. In fact, when I said I was retired military, they recalculated the rates to give a discount better than Good Sam's. After check in, I was escorted to my spot and help backing in was given. Spot was gravel, slight uphill to spot, but spot was level. Trees have not grown full canopy of leaves, but will provide great shade when they do. Hookup for cable TV did not work, but antenna reception is great. Be sure you have long power cords, water hose, and sewer hose as some can be 20 feet away. We will stay again. - Widecreek

We've wintered over here for a few years now. Rate reflects a monthly rate of about $565+elec. This year, they repaved the major avenues fixing most of the potholes. But otherwise, I don't see much change. The park is overrun with long term campers, some of which have been in place for literally years. The north end is more roomy & level, but almost all of those sites are permanent. The manager told me they are going back to a trailer park format with some sites for RVs. I'd say they are already there with RVs that never move. If you can get in and get a site you like, then this is a fine RV park. Their reservation system is pretty messed up. They mostly find you a spot when you show up because they have little idea of when sites will open. And be prepared to wash often as bird poop can cover your rig in a flash. Avoid driving on Arbrook between the campground and Bowen Road due to narrow lanes & tree branches. - Danno
