Sep 2017 - $25.00
Pulled in before setting up went to use bathroom, walked in bathroom, no a/c, roaches in both sinks. Looked in showers same roaches had been there for some time. Pulled out with out staying. Called Manager with what we saw in both bathrooms, he replied he would check into in a few days, as he was out of town. - Soup

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 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

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

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

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

Overnight stay with easy pull through sites. This park is behind the Veranda Inn. It was very quiet, easy in/ out, hookups were good. Site with concrete pads were $5.00 extra. The bathhouse was very nice and clean. There seemed to be some full timers there, but all was very neat and clean. - Mimi on the go

Two night stay for Madri Gras Celebration. Close to downtown and restaurants. Sites are still a little rough and west perimeter sites have a slight incline but manageable. Only a few cement sites are available as it appears some long time campers were already there. Sites were first come, first serve although they are numbered. We complained to the management and they said that they were addressing this as this is still a new park. Pool and playground were under construction. Great party facility on property and plenty of parking for motorcycles and extra vehicles. The staff was courteous, but not very knowledgeable about camping and RV sites. - Rmelvin50
