Stopped here for a couple nights to visit friends. Surprised to hear they were nearly full. Lots of monthly rentals left only 3 sites for travelers. Sites are OK with some much better than others. Concrete patio and picnic table have seen better days but we didn't need them so it wasn't a problem. Utilities are good but typical worthless campground wifi. No cable but OTA and satellite tv is OK. Verizon 4G worked OK. Nice pool, playground, lake, and green space. Not a bad stop if visiting the area if you get one of the better sites. - Pjoe

Only stayed overnight. But would be a great place to stay for longer visit. Well laid out. Full hook ups were convenient and worked fine. WIFI was a little weak. Nice area to walk the dog. - Alamo_GQ88310

This park is in a rural area, on a poorly maintained county road. When we visited there were only three sites occupied and the feel collection was self service. There are Corps of Engineers parks nearby and I am amazed that anyone was staying there. "We did not spend the night" but chose to go on to the COE park which was very nice. - RV Camper1

This park is clean, quite and a nice place to stay. The owners do a back ground check so you know the people next door to you are okay. There is a small lake on the property to fish in. Pet Friendly. Lake Lavon is also about a mile down the road for those who are into boating and fishing. It is also a hop, skip and a jump to Dallas. I have been here twice now and will come back if husband is working in the area again. - hopie

This is not a ranch. It is simply a few acres off the beaten path where someone squeezed together some electricity and water faucets. Appeared to be numerous full timers (who were super friendly). This park is not big rig friendly. It is more suitable for smaller trailers. We were told they had a pull thru so we made this park our destination for the evening. No pull thru. We had to unhook. The corners were so tight that the caretaker had to guide us around corners, parked vehicles and camper trailers. We will not stay here again. Internet was as slow as dial up. - travelingpeople

Really great owners and super location right next to Lake Lavon. The park is located off a pretty quiet road and you are within walking distance to the lake, which has boat ramps and beaches! The owners are really nice and they have horses at the back of the property! The downside is there are no big trees, it is all open. Easy to park, nice gravel. - ProRVer

Upon arriving, we drove up to the entry gate and confirmed our reservation and showed our America the Beautiful access pass. We were given our window pass and directions to our site. It was easy enough to find, and easy to get into. There were about a dozen other campers there, but we didn't see them much. It was pretty cold out so, like us, they were probably inside when not away. The lake was nice looking, and we could see it out our back window. The sites are sloped. We were fortunate that the one we reserved was sloped so our front was low to the ground. Others were sloped the other way. The direction of slope throughout the park seemed to be pretty random. - The Rowlands

Stayed here Friday to Sunday of the Thanksgiving holiday. As it was the only public campground available in the Dallas area. Campground appears to be the orphan stepchild of the Corps of Engineers. It sits on hilly rolling terrain above the lake. Very few trees. The ones that are there appear to have been provided by nature, none have been added to improve shade or act as wind breaks. In November, wind was whipping through pretty good, made life miserable. No site is level front to back, had to improvise to get my tongue low enough to the ground to achieve level, side to side was fine. We camp in a popup without a shower, and only a porta potty for emergencies. So we depend on shower houses. Most public parks are fine. This was an atrocity. The outside timbers are rotting away, paint is pealing every where. Half a roll of toilet paper in the single stall (I always bring my own) stall was backed up when I arrived, managed to finally get it flushed. (Thought I was going to have to go to Home Depot for a plunger) Water leaked from the seal at bottom of toilet, so on my two trips to use it, I was forced to hold my pants off the ground. Oh, no door on stall, just cheap plastic shower curtain. The one shower stall did have a door on shower. But not on changing area. I refused to use it. Cleaned up with wet wipes at camper. Our son braved it, said it was lukewarm and came out in a straight stream like a fire house. The broken tile, chipped paint, no trash can, and lack of concern just put me off. Structure could be bulldozed to the ground with little effort. My son's girlfriend came to pick him up one morning and was immediately followed by the host/ safety patrol to our site, whereupon she was told to get off the grass after having been there 4 or 5 minutes. Other than parking in the road, not sure what guests are supposed to do. Didn't see supposed policy posted. Saw others parked on grass later. Attendant seemed to have vindictive/selective grass fetish. Avoid at all costs; at $30 a night it is highway robbery. - Lapopup52

Bathrooms were beyond nasty. One urinal was so corroded your fluid actually just leaked out onto the floor where you were standing. Women complained of no toilet paper. Sites could use some work on the asphalt. Per COE regulations no ground fires. Area around spigot became a muck hole. - sblanck

Great little park right in the lake. Our lakefront pad was small surrounded by potholes. Sewer made up for 30amp service. - Hoegee

This is the best park on lake Lavon for camping. The shade trees are wonderful. A few of the sites do have 50 amp service. The sites on the lake side don't have shade. Gate attendants are very friendly and helpful. We have now added this to our favorites list - cruzin2some

GPS Co-ordinates are: N33 4.94', W96 29.74' as Country View Trail is too new to be listed. Half mile of rock road to park entry. Interior roads are rock also. New park and nice owners. Small, clean laundry, private lake for fishing (catch and release) and short distance from Lake Lavon for swimming, boating and other fishing. Good, free WiFi, nice size spaces with a few smaller shade trees and grass. Park is still being developed with a picnic pavilion nearly complete. Each site has individual mailbox with it's own address. If you are in the area it is a good, very quiet choice. - PDDeen

We had stayed here YEARS before but had heard they made some major upgrades. Did they ever!! This park is really nice and clean with waterfront sites added. They are continually upgrading other long term and short term sites. The grounds are gated and a code is needed to enter. People are friendly and also helped with backing into the site. Some pull throughs and some back ins. Clean restrooms, screened shelters, cabins, and tent sites. If you have to cancel, they will not give a refund but they "credit" you for your next stay. We stayed for a weekend and will be back! - TexasNolan

.From looking at the dates of previous comments, there have been many improvements in the last year. We have a waterfront site. Off waterfront are less.
Simply beautiful lake!!
Very friendly staff. Very quiet and peaceful.
Like the fact that they enforce pet rules and quiet times.
Picnic tables and fire pits at each site.
Great fishing pier. There are cabins, shelters and tent camping for non-RVers. Playground for our grandkids when they came. The security is great. Spaces are wide!! Large, beautiful park!! Herds of deer roam through the park.
We have been here a month, before we go back on the road. Will definitely be back here anytime we are staying in the area.
Rates vary with length of stay. Love this spot. Take sunset pictures every night.
Not crowded at all during week.
Fills up some on weekends. - Hathaway67

The staff is friendly enough and the grounds are pleasant enough, but a couple of big problems would prevent us from ever returning. We checked in just before the office closed and discovered while setting up that there was no power to our site. We presumed there was a bad breaker. But the office had already closed and we ended up running the generator all night. In the morning it was learned that power had been shut off at the main junction box for the segment we were in. management apologized profusely and since no harm was done, we put it behind us.
The next morning was when the real problem arose. We should have been forewarned when we noticed that just a few minutes of setting the dog's bowl on the ground it was swarming with ants. We dumped it out and resorted to feeding them inside. That evening I kept noticing ants walking across the sofa and would occasionally have to pick one off my arm or leg. I then spotted a stream of ants marching up the wall of the kitchen and into the cabinets. I moved all the food to the refrigerator and sprayed the cabinets with bug spray. That seemed to take care of the situation. About 2:00 am I woke up with a tingling sensation, turned on the light and saw that the bed was absolutely covered with ants. They were all over the bedding and the pillows, which I took outside and sprayed. By morning time the kitchen and bathroom floors were just crawling with ants.
Later that morning someone from staff came by on a golf cart and asked my wife if we had any problem with ants. She described what we had endured last night and the person sprayed something around the RV. This only reinforced in my mind that the staff knew about the ant situation and just chose not to warn anyone.
The other problem was gnats. I don't know what attracted them, but at night whenever you opened the door they would swarm in like a cloud and fill the interior. Horrible.
Worst camping experience ever. - ajmurray

This is a very small park near Lake Tawakoni. The camp host lives on the premises and is extremely helpful. The concrete pads are small - probably less than 20' but there was plenty of room for our 40' fifth wheel trailer, just couldn't get all 4 jacks on the concrete. The sewer hookup is at the rear of the site, so we had to get an extension hose, but other hookups were very convenient. There are a few permanent trailers that are rented out but they are well kept. There are several pavilions for day use as well as a boat launch. There is a good-sized playground, also. We would definitely stay here again when back in the area. - SandyA

This is a beautiful park. We used our Senior Pass for the discount. The road was rough in a couple of places but NOT as bad as other reviews. Bathrooms are cleaned 4 times a week. Everyday in peak season. Very quiet. We loved the park. We would definitely stay here again. If you can pick a site facing the water the view is outstanding. Sites a fairly flat and spacious. The sites have covered picnic area with concrete picnic table. The BBQ's should probably be replaced or removed. Great value for the price. - AZtravler

The park is horrible. Foot high grass in tick country. The road is nearly impassable with a jeep. Half of the grills are partially dismantled, at odd angles. Several permanent, immovable looking motorhomes that look like meth labs populate the lake shore. Could barely see where the sites were for lack of maintenance. - Happitude

Park is not a resort. It provides basic services. Sites were fairly level but did require use of blocks under tires. Road through park had pot holes and needs repaving. Restroom near front entrance recently rebuilt and is also used as storm shelter. Made from concrete and can get very hot during day. No sewer connections but dump station outside gate. Gate closes at 10 pm. Cannot drive into park after that time. - Traveler100
