Like it was said previously, this park is mostly permanent homes, with some RV sites. The sites are hard to get to, narrow roads, big trees. Site itself is grass, narrow, not level. To exit the site you have to go over a curb, and dodge the parked cars. - wilpower

This campground amounts to a few spaces adjacent to mostly manufactured homes development. Most of the residents appear to be transient. The sites are small, grass, uneven, and there are no amenities. Unfortunately, we paid in advance and when our situation changed they refused to refund our money, so our stay, actually, cost us $40. per night. We would never stay here again. - greengal

We actually didn't stay here. The office is a run-down mobile home. The "manager" was next door in another mobile home. When he appeared, he wore no shoes, his socks were falling down around his ankles. He had a scraggly beard, was dirty and not presentable and appeared to be disoriented. He was scary. He said the sites were not for overnight stay, but weekly or monthly. He preferred monthly guests and the rate was $385. The entrance was poorly marked ( a small hand painted sign nailed to a telephone pole ). The pool was drained and there was some brush and trash in it. The interior roads are gravel and from what I could see in very poor condition. At most campgrounds/RV parks, you can safely sit around a campfire with other campers. I would be very reluctant to invite those I saw from the entrance to my campfire. Their website says, among other things, to "stay" in your RV. I had difficulty understanding this until I saw the place. I think it means that you're only safe if you stay inside with the doors locked. - Texas_Camper

Got to the park and not what was on web site. The office road was one way and the tight turns and brush made it hard to get our 33 foot fifth wheel through. Was not allowed to see park before paying. Tried to park us on cliff with real deep gravel started to sink. No trees like web site showed. Sewer lines on top of ground, stopped up. We paid for month, got back all but 35.00 back for their trouble. Will never go back. - LBJMCBRIDE4X4

This was our second year visiting Shady Creek. The monthly rate increased over $150 per month. At the same time, the wifi was unusable but was upgraded in January and was much better. The dog park was flooded from construction next door and the paved roads were in need of repair. We had problems with unstable elec in our first site but was immediately moved to the new section which fixed the problem. Site flooding was an issue forcing a walk through ankle deep water to dump the tanks after a rain storm. Don't get me wrong, the park is good given the available campgrounds in the metroplex. The value, in my opinion, has suffered. No picnic table, no patio, no cable yet one of the highest priced parks in the area. Just check it out before you book. Flooding is a problem in the new section so watch out! No pull throughs. Tends to serve long term stay clients. - Beech35p

We had a reservation. They were full during our stay. Office staff was friendly. Despite the name, there is not much shade here. Asphalt roads with mostly level, gravel sites. About average distance between sites. I would not call it spacious. They recently added about 50 sites at the far south end of the park. Those new sites have more room between sites. No picnic tables at the sites. Room for parking two cars at all sites. The park is mostly permanent residents, but their sites are neat and clean. They only have 6 large capacity washers and 6 dryers. Not enough capacity for a park of this size. Nice, clean, common area with swimming pool and BBQ grill. Grass mowed regularly. The wifi is horrible. It is very slow except during the middle of the night. Some tight maneuvering on the roads. Poor drainage. Fenced dog park, but frequently wet/muddy. Water puddles around many sites and the creek floods during heavy rain. During the spring rainy season, I have seen the dog park completely under water and running water under some of the rigs parked along the creek. There are new housing developments going in behind the RV park and just north. As more concrete is poured, the flooding will get worse. Lots of nice grass for walking the dog. A big downside is having to travel on hwy-360 to get to the park. The speed limit on hwy-360 is 60mph with stop lights and numerous businesses along the road. Take your time and go slower with your RV. Propane is available on site. This is a very nice park, but I think it is poor value. They are a little over priced. There just are not many RV parks in the North Dallas area. Next time we are in the area, we will probably stay at the state park. - Phaeton2

Park is very neat, clean, and well maintained. The desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Park roads are paved with long level gravel pads. There are no pull thrus; however, I had no problem backing my 38' fifth wheel into the site. My site was perfectly level. There is ample parking for RV, tow vehicle, and a 3rd vehicle. All the hookups are in their proper place, are well maintained, and properly functioned. There is nice walking trail through the park, and there is also a very nice fenced dog park. The park was very quiet and peaceful during our stay. There is no cable, but there are plenty of air channels in the DFW area. The WiFi is, as with most parks, spotty and intermittent. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will be back again. - Msubulldawgnwaco

This mobile home community had some unused land so put in sites for RVs right along the fence separating it from the busy 4 lane road. Traffic noise loud and All Night. We had electric, water, sewer, and we had internet. But the access road to the site was narrow, rutted, and once at the site, had no good way to exit. They seem to have put two RVs on one mobile home site with a shared driveway that is not in front of either. So you might drop off the curb getting out. Certainly want to unhitch if towing, and you couldn't fit in anyway with it attached. When I checked in, was told to follow the signs and not given map, instructions, or anything else. It was not as simple as it sounded. If ever in the area again, we would either stay at Walmart or keep on going. - Too-wow

This was a very nice park. Our only complaint was the sewer. We had to put an extension on to reach our connection. We prefer pull through sites, and this park has only backins. Very well maintained park with grass and concrete slabs. All interior roads are paved. Staff was very friendly. Big rig friendly. We will stay here again. - cgavagan

This RV Park is part of an established mobile home park. It is at a major intersection on US390 between Denton and McKinney. We stay there because it is only about 5 miles from our grandkids. The park staff is friendly but the RV facilities are basic--water, sewer, electric(50 and 30 AMP). The sites may not be level and have a little gravel with grass including grass burs. Since we are away most everyday and basically just sleep there, it meets our needs. The wifi is spotty and may not work. Expect a lot of traffic noise in the early mornings and later evenings. - Tim and Susan

Check in was quick and easy, and the young woman was friendly. There are some pull through and many back in sites. Most sites have some slope to them, but nothing insurmountable. All sites have good separation, and the shady ones also have vegetation in between, adding to the sense of privacy. We did run into a problem after arriving at our site. We plugged in our Electrical Management System, and found that the electric outlet was wired backwards. (reverse polarity) I called the office and they sent someone out. He said there is no such thing as reverse polarity in this park! Anyway, after coming and going several times between his boss and I, he finally agreed to rewire the pedestal. After that, no problems. We were able to pick up many OTA TV stations, and Verizon coverage was good. No wifi at site. Park has both concrete and dirt paths, and a swimming area with a nice sandy beach. - BrentB

This Texas SP must be among the nicest in this area. Wonderful walking trails through the woods, well kept sandy beach, very clean restrooms and showers. This was our second visit and is our to go spot when staying close to home. - Jim Butler

This is a wonderful State Park, and we keep returning. We even have a favorite site, 62. It is hard to beat the relaxation and enjoyment of this ample wooded, quiet, lakeside location. The wide variety of birds and the frequent visits from grazing deer at our site was delightful. Unfortunately, there is no sewer at the campsites, only a dump station. The rate for our 30 amp site was $25, but we also had to pay entrance fees which accounts for the total of $33 per night. We went to McDonalds in Sanger for internet access. - Scott & Nancy

we stayed in spot #28, which was a water/electric only site. concrete pad which was slightly off level, easy fix with some leveling blocks. park was well maintained, grass was mowed, picnic shelters and grills were in good shape. there was a steel fire pit on our site but we didn't use it. it appeared that most of the sites had fire pits. lake was very high and flooded out the swimming beach, but we were still able to get in the water and paddle around. great location in the Metroplex/Frisco area. we will stay here again. - sully585

Park sites are cement but they are not level. Trees at some sites are overgrown and can't get taller RVs in some sites. Had to move site because of tree issues, once we were moved into the new site and all set up, went to hook up sewer and their connection was not set for RV use. Called front desk and the two young girls working told us to just move sites to one that will work or go and buy something that will work. "It's just not that easy just to move after you are set up".
I eventually found one of their workers and he said "Oh yeah we put the wrong connection in that site and just haven't had the time to fix it", but came with a rubber sleeve to make do while we were there. Needless to say as convenient as it is to Frisco this place is too pricey and have to many issues to take a chance with the young people they have working here who obviously know nothing about the park or RVing that we will have to find another place when we come to the Frisco area, which is 3-4 times a year. - Preacher1

This is actually a beautiful park with good proximity to Dallas. However I feel it is way overpriced for what it is. The pads are concrete but not level at all. Most sites don't have 50 amp or sewer connections. There are no laundry facilities, no pool, no wifi and poor cellular. BUT, it's a lovely park with lots of space between sites, many of which have a great view of the lake. - Andieham

This is a great park located in a urban area. I seen some comments about hearing traffic noise from the highway and airport but we really didn't notice it at all and we were at the front end of the park and wasn't an issue for us. The pool was very clean and refreshing, I could see it being a little warm in the hot summer but it is a pool with plenty of sun for sunbathing and the hot tub does flow into the pool. The park is probably 85% long term but that does also say a lot for the campground. We met some of the residents and they all seemed to love the park and staff. All the sites were very well maintained and clean. They have a nice children's play area, onsite RV wash, Recreation room, Well stocked store, Propane onsite, Open grassy area for sports and recreation.
The WiFi signal was strong and easy to connect to but was a little on the slow side, but it is free and worked well for email and browsing the internet.
Cellular service with AT&T was low but still worked well for calls and text.
Check-in was fast and easy and our site was easy to get to and get parked, the site required very little to level our rig. Nice picnic table but didn't have a charcoal grill (went and bought a cheap little one at Walmart as we needed a portable one for the RV anyway).
Only real con to this park is we are used to camping near the lake or forest and was a little different for us, but we were in Denton for a UNT football game and sure beat staying at hotel by far. They have an off-leash area for dogs but there isn't a barrier between it and the service road. - Back to the basics

Nice place right off I-35. Construction on highways to get here is awful. The park is very nice. Like a little neighborhood. The spots are nice and pretty roomy. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The little path to get to our site was a little sketchy and needs to be repaved. The pool looked inviting but we didn't use. Nice area to walk pets. - cmiller

We stayed two nights. 40 foot diesel pusher pulling a toad. The park is easy on and off the highway with little street or road noise. Staff was courteous and welcoming. All hook ups worked fine. Site was hard to level. We had to shore up wood to get it right. There was lot of space to walk about with the dog. We use our dish and antenna and have our own WIFI. There WIFI worked good for basic stuff. We would stay here again. - rdmike

I have traveled for seven years and this is the worst dump I have experienced. Tiny, dirty pool was closed, train tracks 50 yards away with trains coming through every 30 min., large rats, possums, feral cats roaming the park and copper head snakes. A resident was bitten while I was there and almost died. Owners did NOTHING. Dilapidated uninhabited buildings in various states of decay (perfect turf for wild animals, rats, snakes), no bathrooms, laundry room has four antiquated machines and filthy. The wireless internet is so poor just get used to the message "connection timed out." The pictures on their site and info is a farce. The positive reviews are obviously created by people with bias. If you don't believe me get here early with plenty of daylight and take a good look around before you give these crooks your money. I came in late, paid for a week in advance and was very upset by their dishonesty. Stay away! - Open Road Traveller

This is a very old campground with not a whole lot of amenities. Not one of the nicer ones - rg7438

NO cable TV!! Park is very tight even with our 38 ft motor home. The office was impossible to find and when we did there was no through way for the RV TO PROCEED. We had to unhook and back out. Lots of full time residents. Swimming pool was closed. - mkfore

We stayed at Hickory Creek in multiple sites in November and December, 2016. Note that some sites are quite sloping - we originally booked site 10 and we would have had the front end (and door) of our motorhome *way* off the ground to get level there. Sites we stayed in that were reasonably level were 13, 34, 52, and 95.
Seniors get half price which is $14 for 30A or $15 for 50A.
Good walking areas throughout the park. Note that the entrance gate closes at 10pm and it is a mile+ walk to the campground. Ranger recommended we leave one vehicle inside the gate if we would be returning after 10pm - but we only have the one tow vehicle in addition to the motorhome. (We moved to another location for the weekend when we had late evening events scheduled.)
Hickory Creek is most convenient to Denton, and it isn't too bad for getting onto I-35E (but the construction on I-35E is awful). Hickory Creek is our favorite of the 3 parks we have stayed at in this area - best value for the money - as long as you don't need to be out after 10pm. Use Waze on your smartphone to help with directions when you're returning to the campground, especially after 8pm, as sometimes there are exits closed due to the construction. - pattic777

This is a very nice park and the spaces are large. Easy back in spaces and pull through. The restroom and shower facilities were roomy and clean. The biggest downside to this park is the policy of locking the entry gate at 10:00 pm. I you are attending a function of some kind in DFW area you will be forced to leave early to make the one hour drive back to the park. It is a VERY long walk if you get locked out. Other than that it's a very nice park to stay in. - Greg S.

We camped her in a 28 foot Class A , no tow vehicle. The Site was back-in, gravel and absolutely level! It had a picnic table and concrete apron to step out on. The power held good amps and voltage and water pressure was great. There was access to the boat ramp and many areas to walk in. That was the upside. Things to be aware of. The staff member at the entry gate provided no map, just "follow the signs". There was no mention of the bath house hot water being "under repair" or that the on-site sewer was apparently overwhelmed by recent rain or something else. Yes, it blew out in the first 5 seconds of the start of the dump. Fortunately, it went south and I was standing north!. And, if you are leaving the campground, be back by 11 pm, or maybe 10 pm, as when the gate closes, you are walking to your campsite - 1.5 miles inside??? - DHK

All sites have good separation, and the shady ones also have vegetation in between, adding to the sense of privacy. Our favorite was site #12, which was right on the lake. Utilities were well placed and worked well. Picked up many OTA TV stations, and Verizon coverage was good. No wifi at site. Park has both concrete and dirt paths, and a swimming area with a nice sandy beach. - BrentB

This is a hidden jewel in North Texas. It's part of the state park system. While we were there the park was not heavily occupied and rather quiet. The spots are quite separated so that you don't feel cramped. The 50 amp spots are all pull-through. The 30 amp spots are back-ins, and quite a few of them back up to the lake. All spots had a fire pit and a picnic table.
There are several play grounds, bathing houses, and a large public 'beach area'. There is a walking path through the woods which loops throughout the park.
If you pay for the Texas State Parks Pass, you get a good discount. It's good for a year at all of the state parks. - mpruet

A real hidden gem in this area. The lake is up and there is a lot of activity on the lake, there are two major sights on the lake and Johnson Branch is on the north side and has about a 10th of the traffic as the south side. The JB has about 100 sites and I think about 11 are 50 amp all of those are drive thru. The best sites are all 30 amps and back in but since it was in the 90’s we parked in one of the 50 amp pull thru sites to stay cool. Rangers were personable and friendly especially since it was our first time to camp here, we went ahead and bought an annual park pass and paid $26 a night. All of the sites have water and electric and a sewer dump is close to the entrance. About the only negative is w/o the pass it is an additional $7.00 per day per person so the cost gets too high. Gates are locked from 10PM to 6AM but they give you a code so we felt very secure and during the day it was quiet and after dark it was completely quiet. We will be back again and again. - DKRITTER
