Rate is from the weekly rate of $127.50. Big park with gravel roads and grass/dirt sites. Our first site, #53, was not level or big rig friendly so we asked to move. They then gave us #51 which worked fine. Nice pools and club house, rest rooms were nice. It was a busy park with lots of kids. Lots to do in the area so we would stay there again. We camped at North Texas Jellystone (formerly Rustic Creek Ranch) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Close to Camping World, MHS RV, and Ancira RV.

The campground and water park were really nice. The showers in the clubhouse near our site were excellent and well kept. For some reason in the area we were in (Site 91) there was a sewer smell, not just at our site but in the whole area. We could smell it at the pool and clubhouse. Also, while we had a fire ring we didn't have a BBQ grate or pit. Normally there is a grate that flips over the fire ring that will allow you to cook on it but this was just a small ring. We will stay here again. We camped at North Texas Jellystone (formerly Rustic Creek Ranch) in a Travel Trailer.

We didn't use a lot of the park amenities as we were with a family reunion. However, the staff was very nice and we enjoyed the on-site restaurant. We were right up front by the cabins, but we never heard highway noise. We camped at North Texas Jellystone (formerly Rustic Creek Ranch) in a Travel Trailer.

Rip Off. Cost of stay provides limited access to things. Must purchase a band for $25.00 to $39.00 to gain access to water park and other activities. Park landscaping is poor with several dead shrubs. Our spot had not been mowed or edged in sometime. First put me in a spot next to highway and construction, wedged between two cabins, and was more mud than gravel. Highway noise all night. This is Interstate 35 south of Dallas, one of the busiest in the state. I quickly moved with office help. But had to convince them the spot was empty only after they had called the person that had rented prior. They thought he was still there. Great for kids or grand kids. Many things to do if you have the money to spend. Many people complained about poor cabins and RV locations. We camped at North Texas Jellystone (formerly Rustic Creek Ranch) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at this park for 3 nights in a travel trailer and one rented cabin. We had 5 grandchildren with us and had a great time. Overall, this park provided everything listed on the web site with a few exceptions. The staff was great and the facilities were clean and updated. There is some construction going on with the water park and it is located right on IH-35. We knew all of this ahead of time and neither of these items were an issue. We have a 35' towed RV and the roads are a little narrow in the park. If people park their vehicles partially in the road, it is difficult to maneuver safely. I had to back out of our pull through space to exit the park due to this but that was the only issue we had with our 3 night stay. We will come back to this park and I recommend it as a great location for kids to have a great time which lets us have a good time.

This is a playground amusement park with lots of construction going on, noise from freeway & construction, even on Sunday. Lots of cabins scattered with motor home sites in-between. Many FEMA trailers in back area, guess hoping to rent out? Rally hall and baths were spotless, but who knows when summer is here and lots of kids around. Pool by office very small. Water pipes froze one night and understand cable did not work at several sites. We were here with a rally group so rate was $35 per night. They rent golf carts, so they zip around the area day and night. We were only here for a FMCA rally, so otherwise forget it. The area looks like a camper, towables, 5 Th wheel camp ground.

This is basically an amusement park/kid’s summer camp with RV sites. There are two small pools, a water park, fire engine rides, arcade, and a long list of kid friendly amenities and scheduled activities. They can even buy snow cones or other junk food in the store or café. Most of the entertainment amenities come with additional charges but those add to the nice quality of this amusement park type campground. There are three sections to the park. One is a tent only area around the lake. In the two RV sections, paved roads lead to gravel sites that are generally level and with enough space to fit most sized rigs. In the older section space between sites isn’t impressive, but you won’t swap awnings with your neighbor. OTA TV channels were plentiful and satellite reception is fairly easy. The staff is attentive and helpful. All of that rates a 10. The following negatives of my four day stay make it much less on the rating scale. The cable list was 20 channels but only about half were viewable. Verizon cell signal was only one or two bars at best and without 3 or 4 G. The entire park is engulfed in road noise from I-35. The Wi-Fi system had a strong signal but, on more than one occasion, was exceptionally slow and it dropped me out many times. I played musical campsites for three days due to either being assigned to the wrong site, low voltage on another, or being next to the awful smell of their on--site sewer containment facility. I was finally offered an upgraded site that was acceptable, but that should have been done at the beginning. This was a busy, full park, holiday week-end. I will give the staff lots of credit for working hard to eventually get me into a decent site and then provide some compensation for my troubles. As a matter of fact, the overall customer service is very good. But, those efforts did not overcome the barriers to good utilities, road noise, sewer smell, and my having to play musical campsites in very hot conditions. My purpose for being here was actually for the grand kids amusement. They enjoyed the facilities. The bill payer did not.

Stayed here with my wife and 3 small kids. (4, 6, 8). Park is great! Lots of activities, a couple pools and access to a nice water park if you choose. All facilities are nice, clean and kept up. Camp store is nicely stocked, prices are as expected in a Jellystone Park. Propane available at park. Sites are not paved, and some are not level. More trees and shade in older side opposite of water park side. Water park side sites have newer trees, but some shade. Sites are nice. Some reviewers are just too picky in their reviews. Park is busy, as expected of a Jellystone park. Golf cart rental is available and I would suggest renting, it made getting around the large park easier and the kids liked riding around.

We are here for a family gathering and the park has all the facilities for our use--water park, swimming pools, play grounds, indoor activities for the kids, and lots of shade. The staff is attentive and very busy. It is a large park with lots of spaces and cabins. We were here during the week so I don't know about weekends and how busy it maybe. We were able to get the television that we needed--not that much because we were busy doing other things. Yes we would return.

We've been staying at this park twice a year for the past 7 years. It's not what it once was. Now the business is all about family holidays. Don't bother coming if you are looking for a nice quiet place to camp. Highway noise is constant. Sites are over grown with weeds in many places. Permanent area is embarrassing with the 'junk' around RVs. Cable TV is a joke. Poor reception and few channels. Many channels are over the air channels and others simply don't have reception. Maybe 5-6 working 'cable' channels. Wi-Fi is all but nonexistent. You may be able to log on but good luck getting any bandwidth. Staff are fine. Security sits in the 'box' and doesn't get off their seat to check anyone driving in. Public can walk in from the water park without any trouble. The park is handy to DFW and that is about it's only saving grace. Great for family fun but not for us old folks needing a quiet safe campground. This will be our last visit.

Great spot for familes!! Jellystone is filled with activities for kids through the whole day. They have crafts, fire truck rides, water park, pedal cars, fishing, etc. We have been going there for about two years now and have never had a bad experience.There are some spots that do lack shade, so you have to be prepared to have your awning out.They also have limited spots with fire pits and grill tops, so bring your own grills.The restrooms are cleaned a few times a day, and staff is always very helpful.

This CG is now known as the North Texas Jellystone. We stayed here in the V-Pod sites, they are very nice and easy to access with our 40' DP pulling a full size crew-cab pickup in tow. Sites are level, concrete, interior roads paved. Overall very nice campground. We did not have a good stay. Four days with an underpowered site due to electrical issues, which they wouldn't fix. We didn't feel like moving since we had a great site (#215) on an end, at the back of the park. Luckily we didn't need the A/C since it was the dead of winter, any warmer and this would have been a major problem. After arguing with maintenance man who didn't know what he was doing, I gave up. We choose this site specifically to be as far from the highway as possible, had very little highway noise. Was offered nothing by management after leaving and disproving it was a problem with our coach. We camped at North Texas Jellystone (formerly Rustic Creek Ranch) in a Motorhome.

Huge park with tons of things for kids to do. Sites are gravel with some grass in between sites. Information from the brochure that they gave us upon arrival says, under amenities, they have high speed wireless internet. Well the wireless part is correct but it is far from high speed, more like slow or no speed. I would not stay here again We camped at North Texas Jellystone (formerly Rustic Creek Ranch) in a Fifth Wheel.

Having grown up visiting Jellystone Parks across the country, we were excited to see one coming to the North Texas area. We have stayed at this park on a number of occasions, usually with great results. Our most recent trip was not so nice. Security was lacking at the park and a large group of teenagers was allowed to terrorize a pool full of small children. Horseplay became dangerous and nudity was abundant. Camp staff seemed unable/unwilling to control the situation. Burleson PD was called in and Park staff allowed the trouble makers to remain in the park without proving they were actual paying guests. The good: As would be expected with a Jellystone Park, numerous family activities are available. The addition of the new Water Park is an extremely nice amenity. Adjacent to the Water Park is a nice, large arcade, although most of the games are of the “win tickets / trade for prizes” variety. Most sites have fire rings and un-shaded picnic tables. Water quality and pressure were good. Electrical connection was good. Sewer system was good. The camp store has the essentials one would expect. Dog park is a nice feature. The Bad: The park is only a few hundred feet east of a major interstate (I-35W) and the road noise, especially from semi's, can be loud within the park. The trees located in the older section of the park do provide some degree of noise isolation, but this older section also contains much smaller camp sites. Most barely provide enough room for typical awning deployment. The lawn care is lacking, except on Sunday mornings when lawn equipment begins operating at 8am. (REALLY?!) Sites are overgrown and full of weeds. Pool care / water clarity on most recent visit was poor. There are numerous poor-quality FEMA trailers parked throughout the camp with what appears to be either long-term residents, or Oil & Gas crews looking to save on hotel costs. Camp staff was providing maid service to these trailers so it is likely they are camp owned. Last, the waterpark is not a campground only amenity. It is open to the public, and while there is a gate separating the public parking lot from the campground, it was open during our visit due to a packed public parking lot. This means that non-camp guests were able to roam the campground. We camped at North Texas Jellystone (formerly Rustic Creek Ranch) in a Motorhome.

Stayed in the "v" sites. This is good because we were traveling with friends. The sites need to be graded and level. Other than that, this park was ok. We camped at North Texas Jellystone (formerly Rustic Creek Ranch) in a Motorhome.
