This is a large, clean park. There are some permanent or seasonal sites, but they are well kept up. The gravel sites are long and have picnic tables. The staff is friendly and helpful. Restaurants and showers are clean and relatively modern. There is a large, clean laundry, with newer machines. There is a small playground, a pool with chairs around it, & and a dog park. There is a small club house with couches and the kitchen. The wifi works at the club house, but we were only two rows away and it was very inconsistent. It takes about 45 minutes to get into Dallas from the park, but we were unable to find a park closer to the sights we wanted to see. The price is a little high, at $55 for the nightly stay. We camped at Dallas / Arlington KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The location is what drew us to this campground. We did enjoy being in the middle of everything in Arlington; however, there is a big "but". The park is over run with long termers that don't keep their sites up well. The pool was a bit off-color and in need of a thorough cleaning. The shower/restrooms were not very clean and in desperate need of some repairs. Shower #2 was missing the shower head, #4 had almost no water pressure, and #5 had so much pressure it hurt (no flow adjustment on control knobs). We didn't try the cable. The WiFi worked really well but was not secured. We camped at Dallas / Arlington KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Older park, layout nice, but needs upgrading. Laundry and baths/showers clean. Close to attractions, Shopping, and only 6 miles from baseball and football stadiums. Staff friendly and courteous. Lots of permanent residents in older units. Would recommend park, not the best, not the worst We camped at Dallas / Arlington KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a Big Park, no, I mean Really Big. And, it is full of long-term renters. I'd guess that 85% of the sites are occupied by non-weekend campers. That said, we got what we desired from this park. Big Rig compatible, full hook-ups, and a location that gave us access to The MetroPlex (Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington). This was a "get away" trip with one of our son's and his friend, both ages 13, so location to Six Flags, SpeedZone was priority. Don't stay here if you are looking for "the camping experience". It's just not a very appealing park by eye site. Maybe it was because we arrived in the middle of the night, but, I think they could do a better job of identifying the Park Entrance. The KOA store is out front with what appears to be driveways on either sides. Wrong. You'll get in a heap if trouble in a bigger RV if you choose incorrectly. Since the Park is located within the city and off of a busy major street, backing up, if you choose poorly, would be hazardous. Looking at the KOA Store the correct entrance is on your left. Because they have so many long term residents, the restroom-shower stalls stay active. We each have our unique reasons why we chose to use the parks facilities or our own. If you select the parks because you like the bigger shower stalls, you might want to re-think your options here. Their shower stalls are about the same size as what you rig has and each stall has its own personality and comes with its individualized shower head. Try them all out and pick your favorite. We did enjoy the dog area. Lots of dogs call this place "home". And the only other comment that I can think might provide some insight is the sites themselves. We have a large 40 foot with 5 slides. Because of the situation of the tree limbs extending over our site, we had to position a large branch in-between two of our slides or we would not have been able to extend them. This caused us to located our RV toward the front of our pull-through which put us out of reach to the site specific sewage. It's located in the far back of each site. The Dallas area really is in need of several more RV Parks to accommodate all the campers to this area. We camped at Dallas / Arlington KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects a monthly rate. Good location for all attractions. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Have stayed here many times due to having family in the area. In the last year the park has gone down hill some. Now has a large number of long-term units that are old and shabby. Also these units have a lot of "junk" around the unit and often multiple vehicles that block the lane. The only reason we continue to stay is due to being close to family and attractions. That said, if you are not a monthly customer, the sites are very nice. It is the long-term units that have become shabby, dirty, and trashy. We camped at Dallas / Arlington KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here over Thanksgiving and really enjoyed the location! Did a lot of sightseeing and relaxing. Sites were nice and easy check-in. We would stay here again, if in the area! We camped at Dallas / Arlington KOA in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Very clean, quiet, nice size lots, easy access, cable TV. Have two leash free dog parks......which made our puppies very happy. It's not fancy, but a nice place to stay. Only drawback was the gravels lots.......not very level. Needed our extension to hook up to electric. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Dallas / Arlington KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Fine for an overnight stay, we were on a road trip and didn't reserve anything else ahead of time. Not much within walking distance, other than a spooky gas station/bodega. Seemed like a lot of long term residents in disadvantaged economic circumstances. Easy to get to, right off the freeway, with long, but quite narrow pull-through spots.

Nice large sites close to the pool. Restrooms and showers though not new, were clean and well maintained. Spent the weekend here on the way to San Antonio. There are quite a few permanent/long term campers here. Looks like they are doing quite a bit of updating. New patio areas on the campsites and landscaping. We camped at Dallas / Arlington KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Clean and nice. A safe park. Improvements being made. Great people that work at park. In the middle of the city but still quite. Close to all attractions in Arlington, Fort Worth, and Dallas. If coming from I-30, going south on Cooper, ask office how to get into park. In a RV there is no way to make the left U-turn at the light on California street. We will stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 months while on assignment. Overall, the park is a nice park if you can deal with the unprofessional employees who gossip about other people in the park. And beware, they have MANY "rules" that are enforced depending on who you are and the day of the week. The cable is great, laundry room is busy but clean. Showers are clean and nice. Playground is not much, swingset , see saw, and sandbox. The entrance is a bit annoying too, if you are coming from I-20 you can turn in ok, very narrow. If you are coming the other direction you have to do a u-turn and then turn in, no way with the camper. I would probably stay here again if I really needed a place.

I do not think that this park is worth the cost, and will go down the street in the future. Park Entrance is so small that any rig over 35 foot or so will hit a large curb coming into the park. Upon Check In, the lady working at the office decided to assign me (43 foot motorhome and 10 foot motorhome trailer) the smallest site in the park even though the park was not close to full, and I had had my reservation in for one month. I asked her about this and she said that my motorhome did not look that big, and it would fit. Needless to say, it was not even close to fitting in that site, nor the second site she tried to put me in that was almost as small. After backing 43 foot of motorhome and trailer around the RV park, the third time was the charm. After a few hours in this third site, the 50 amp breaker blew at the park power connection. The park power box was hot to touch and had a burning small. Rather than burn down my RV and the park, I ran my power cord to the next site over. A KOA employee the next day assigned another RV in the space next to mine, and when he found out that I ran my power cord over to that site, he accused me of stealing the parks power. He then made me unplug my power cord and run my generator for 1.5 hours until the park power connection was repaired. This park could cause serious damage to an RV, from the high entrance curbs, narrow entrance gates, overhanging trees, and old badly wired park power connections. I will be taking my business down the street the next trip. We camped at Dallas / Arlington KOA in a Motorhome.

Due to a park wide power outage we only stayed at this park for 2 hours after check-in. It was August and very hot and we didn't have enough propane to power our A/C through the night so we left because there was no one on site to give information about anything. The check-in information said to call 911. 170 sites @ $49/night and they do not have an after-hours number or camp-host to call for information or help? No I would never stay here again.

Don't be fooled by the entrance or the neighborhood. This is a great park once you get through the gate and past the initial RV parking. Beware of speed bumps! They are everywhere! We camped at Dallas / Arlington KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA is in rough condition. Roads are paved, but full of pot holes. Sites are gravel with a little patio at the rear of the site. Our coach is 50 amp, but because the voltage was so low in the park we could only run 1 air conditioner. We have an auto-former that helps when the park power is low, but it still couldn't pick up the power enough. The voltage meter was only reading 115 on 50 amp at the pole. Restrooms are tiny and in poor condition; didn't use them so I don't know if there was any hot water or not. The pool was closed for our stay as there was a problem with the filter, and they had to drain it. We will probably not stay here again, as we would be better off dry camping in a Wal-mart, using our generator, so we could use both a/c's. We would probably use less than $50 worth of diesel, which is what they charged per night. We camped at Dallas / Arlington KOA in a Motorhome.
