I come to this park every first weekend of the month. The Canton Marketplace is only open the first weekend of each month. The Staff is amazing!! The manager is so sweet and she works with you. This RV park is nice, pet friendly and easy access to restaurants! I will be back in October! - Bay07

This park is actually in Wills Point about 9 miles from Canton but a quick drive to Trade Days on I-20. The park has gravel roads but is well maintained. Sites are level, wide, long and angled well so big rigs can get in and out easily. Nice pull thrus! There's a large dog area for walking the dog. We've been here before & I don't remember a pool so this may be new. Staff is very nice & helpful. It is close to the freeway but we didn't hear the noise because our air conditioner was on all the time. Good satellite reception, Verizon cell & air card service. We've been here before & will come back again. - Danni

Only 2 50 amp sites available. Very small park behind the hotel. There are a few trees for shade. Not much else in the way of amenities. OK for an overnight stay. Don't come during the first monday flea-market without reservations. Ask for a discount, they gave us a nice rate just for asking. - BigRigger06

This is a smaller Texas State Park on a lake that is reported to have a variety of fish to include Black Bass, catfish, perch and so forth. The RV sites are spaced nicely to offer some sense of privacy with trees and bushes offering additional privacy. The heavy recent rains have made the hiking trails muddy, but the few we walked offered a nice hike. The Park has a Park Police Officer who patrols the area and seems to keep a lid on noise. The nearest towns are small and only offer a bit more than gas and sodas. The Park is often full during nice weather and always during First Monday Canton. - Jim Butler

We had a rough start to our visit here. We were told that the office hours were from 8:00AM to 5:00PM. We arrived at 4:45 and were told that the lobby closed at 4:30 and they would not check us in, but we could go pick any site that was not occupied and to come back before 9:00 the next morning to check in. We drove in and picked site #20 which was empty and had no tag to indicate it was taken. It was tricky to get our 34 foot trailer into the site but we managed to do it and it had a nice view of the lake. We set up camp and enjoyed our first evening there. The next morning I went to pay and was told we would have to move to another site because a "local man" had already paid for that site for the whole week! What a disappointment since we had already set everything up! So we had to load up and move to site 47, which is nice but had no lake view. To make matters worse, the "local man" didn't show up to actually use his site until several days later!
In spite of all that, it is a nice park with sites that are well spaced, shady, and have vegetation to provide separation and privacy from adjacent sites. Some sites are level, while others require about 3 inches of leveling blocks. Our first site had good Verizon cell phone reception but poor TV reception, while the second site had good TV reception but poor cell phone reception. Water and electricity work well, although we did have a brief outage during a storm. They have several miles of hiking trails, but they were too muddy for us to make it very far during our stay. Pets and tents are allowed. - BrentB

Excellent Texas State Park. We were in back-in site #13. It looked small from the road, but easily accommodated my 37' 5th wheel and still had room to park my truck. Very private and great shade. Water pressure and quality good. Good 30A electric. Central dump station is tight, no sewer at sites. Nice, easy hiking trails. We would stay here again. - drfife

All sand sites, side by side. The pool was not usable and I don't think it ever will be. It's full of permanent sites and full of junk. Needs to be cleaned up as it's very poorly maintained. We would never go back. - mary beth

Not fun - the wifi is useless - will stay connected about 30 seconds at a time - if at all. The restrooms smell VERY bad - maybe they are clean (?) but the bad odor is a deterrent. The TV cable is only slightly better than the wifi - can connect to channels then suddenly you are watching SNOW! - The spots are NOT level - no where near level - in fact we had several blocks in place and still could not get even nearly level!! Some of the permanent residents are a bit different - wandering around with beer bottles in hand and probably didn't need another beer anyway. Just not a comfortable feeling at all. For your money......keep driving a little longer - there are newer parks and nicer parks not far away. - EllieMae Erskine

Access to the park going east entailed a U-turn on the busy interstate (dangerous). We reserved a select site away from the traffic noise at the rear of the park two months in advance. When we arrived they had given away our site despite having called them several times with updates to our progress getting there. Ended up having to squeeze into a site about 100' from the highway where most of the shade trees were but no sleep from the highway noise and construction going on at that spot. At the time there was a permanent resident parked there with a Pit Bull tethered outside his trailer with a light weight cord and several other permanents with clutter around their units taking up the prime sites with a few dogs running loose. It seemed to us that their utilities were installed on the wrong side of the very narrow sites for modern rigs and this limited the sites we could set up on. The sites were very close together. All sites are grass, the roads are gravel/paved and the utilities worked well. We stayed only one night instead of a few months there and found a better spot up the road for our summer exploring base camp. Definitely would not stay here again. - wheels

The manager was friendly and very helpful. This campground was nice and the facilities were clean and cared for. We were here for a rally and things could not have been better. The rain made things a little muddy but that was not the fault of the campground. We would return if this way again. - JWT

This is a typical TT park. The usual amenities, a little worn, rough roads, dirt and gravel sites. Lots of annual tenants but neat and tidy. Nice and quiet on a pretty lake. Lots of fishing going on, which seems to be the major draw. The park is remote. Groceries and other basics are 15 minutes away. Stayed during a rainy week and the park is very muddy. The drainage system needs some work. There is some tree trimming and other repairs going on. The staff is very nice. - rushin river

As seems to be the case with many Thousand Trails parks, this park appeared that it had a lot going for it when it was built, but maintenance, particularly of the road surfaces, has been lacking. Check in was easy, we were told to select our own site, and we chose one in section H, near the ranger station. The site was nice, reasonable distance from neighbors, ok surface to the site (may have been asphalt at one time, now mostly gravel). On the second morning, we were watching the water rise in the sites on the road across from us, and saw the rangers coming through to ask us to move as the power would be shut down in section H (and I). Many "permanent" looking RVs were needing to move also. We moved to a site in C - after trying to get into a couple in A where the narrowness of the road and the site, and the instability of the surfaces just off the road, combined to make it very difficult to get our 43' motorhome backed in. The water continued to rise, so two days later, we moved to a site on the main road in A - a much better location.
Price reflects Thousand Trails membership. - pattic777

We chose Lake Tawakoni as the second TT park we stayed at and to take a break from sightseeing and just relax. To say the park is out of the way is an understatement, but that was what we were looking for. Upon arrival, we checked in, got our information and were told to select our own site. We started in one loop, but then decided to head toward one of the lakefront loops. We were told the other lakefront loop was mostly full and that is where the annual units are. Driving through the loop, we found many of the sites were unavailable, signaled by a plastic bag on the utility pole. We found a site, but going into the loop to the right wasn't the correct direction, so my husband had to exit the loop, turn around and come back in going to the left.
We loved our site, it was longer than we needed and very wide. We were right on the lake, so we had room and clear skies to put the satellite out, while still having trees above us. The site looked like it was asphalt at one time, but it hadn't been maintained. The hookups are 30 amp with water and sewer. During our stay we had to reset the breaker and all seemed well, but we had to take our RV for some work and return to the park. When we disconnected the electric our connector had plastic from the outlet melted on it. The power had been working, but we reported it on our way out and it was replaced when we returned. To be safe we purchased a new 50-30 amp plug. We mentioned it to the staff a couple of times, but ours hints for reimbursement were ignored.
Most of the sites, not along the lakes edge, have heavy enough tree cover to prevent satellite use, but there are ones that satellite will work.
There are two pools and a hot tub, along with two community buildings, one for adults only. The pools closed the day after we arrived,but they both looked clean and in relatively good condition.
We ended up staying 8 nights, extended from our original plan of 5. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. - Uno Mas

Great place to visit for a night or several days if you are visiting Dallas attractions. Grounds are very well kept and the staff is excellent. Easy on and off from I-20. Only real downside was that the area had experienced very heavy rain recently and drainage was an issue in some areas. Other than that, this location has easy earned their high reviews and should be on your list if you will be in this areas. - rv time

Nice park right off I-20. Service is nice and the park is built well. Ponds provide a relief from TX heat and soothes the nerve. Well maintained park with good staff running it.
Close to city center and to city of Dallas. Wills stay again. - jjwelsh

The rate reflects the 50% Passport America rate. The entrance is easily missed, it looks more like a driveway into someone's side yard and there is no signage visible for this park. The roads are gravel and wind in between the trees in the park so be careful when navigating. The sites have gravel pads and there is no rhyme or reason to how they are laid out. Our site, a pull-through, was plenty long enough but not very level front to back. The owners/managers and the work camper were all very nice but the park needs a lot of updating and sprucing up to be worth the full price of $40 per night. - wingerphil

Very friendly park with lots of 'walking around' room. Dogs are 'free to be' as long as you pickup after them. Close to the Canton restaurants, fuel, propane, & Walmart. Lots of trees but they are high enough and easy to avoid with RV roof. - leona mae

Waited until the last minute for First Monday Easter weekend. Took a chance since we would not be there most of the day. Park is really trying and still recovering from the 2011 drought and a 2013 tornado. Nice landscaping and gathering spots in progress. Mostly permanent residents with some overnight sites. Utilities good. Sites are gravel. Owners and park host very nice and helpful. Maintenance guy on site. A quiet park and really felt safe there. Pricey, but it was First Monday - 4 miles from town. - Perch151

We spent Memorial Day weekend in site #49, which is a very long, concrete, pull through with full hook ups. The experience here centers on the lake, which features a large, clean sandy beach area with lots of shallow water swimming space. There is also a multi-lane boat ramp that was very busy. Lots of people were bank fishing the main lake for catfish, but we found the small pond near the front of the park better (ok) for the kids. There are several basic trails good for mountain biking.
Strangely, although we had 2-3 bars of LTE (AT&T), both voice and data service were almost nonexistent. We got 3-4 OTA TV stations, all public television plus one NBC that was hit and miss.
We'd come back in the summertime, mainly for the kids to enjoy the sandy beach area. - texasAUtiger

Wills Point, TX - Lake Tawakoni State Park
Nice, quiet state park on Lake Tawakoni. Plenty of room for our 40' MH with room left over to park our jeep. Paved roads, concrete pads, and full hookups in Spring Point Camping Loop. Lots of trees, couldn't get a sattelite signal in site 73 but over the air channels were good out of Dallas. decent cell phone signal with Verizon coverage. Boat launch, sandy beach with swimming area. Bathrooms were clean. - Phaeton2

Lake Tawakoni State Park is a beautiful Texas State Park 11 miles north of Wills Point, TX. They have full hook-up and water and electric sites in back in and pull throughs. We were in site 50 (50A full hookup pull through) and can see and access the lake from the site. Popular Lake for fishing. 6 miles of nice hiking trails. Only 70 miles from Dallas. Closest grocery store 11 miles in Wills Point. Nearest Walmart 14 miles in Quinlan. We've been here many times and will return. - drfife

A nice clean RV park with gravel pull throughs. Water, electric, and sewer hook ups where well maintained.
The park was full due to Canton Trade Days weekend. The wifi was a little slow.
The campground is about 7 miles west of Canton.
The campground does have a swimming pool, but not very big. - Jloftin

Warm welcome by the Host (Karen).
Easy to get into and out of off I20.
Gravel site which was level for a change, long and wide, no need to unhitch.
Showers were very clean and well kept and stocked also nicely heated or A/C.
Would stop here again when in the area. - robertjoy

Friendly and helpful staff. Easy in and out. Convenient to Canton First Monday Trade Days. We arrived after dark and very tired. Of all the open sites, we probably chose the only one that wasn't level. No problem...we leveled the 5th wheel and spent a very nice week here. Will stay here again if ever in the area. - Bryan&Susan
Nov 2012 - $20.00
Cable and Air TV OK, no WI-FI. My 2012 Acer could not get connectivity at sites 3 and 5 next to motel, or 13 in the center. Wi-Fi OK in office. Bath house needs cleaning and maintenance. Urinal would not flush, paper and dead cockroaches on the floor and the hot water was barely lukewarm. Lock on Ladies Bathroom was broken. Only 3 sites were taken. We will not stay here again. - rossby

We came for the flea market and finding a place to stay was hard, Best Western had sites available. This place is definitely a last choice place, it is a stripe of sites behind the hotel. The site pads are asphalt and although ours was level it was old, not in great shape. There is grass (more like weeds) next to the site and a very warped table. The sites are wide and they do have some long one for big rigs. The free Wi-Fi works well. Overall the RV park need a lot of tender loving care, but the reasonable rate makes it good for an over night stay. - hapicamper

This is a great bargain at $21 plus tax! The restrooms and showers were very clean and spacious. I have excellent Wi-Fi from the hotel at lot 2. They warn you ahead of time but select a back in on sites 1 through 7 for good WI. There is no complementary breakfast now. The park lanes are narrow but it is not a huge problem unless you are a big dog towing. The pull through sites are 60 feet plus. We stayed here in Motor home towing a Saturn which we used to go to the Trade Days goat rope. There are only 4 campers in this park tonight. We came here after turning down Mills Creek because they wanted to sock us with a $5 fee for Wi-Fi. No way Jose! The entrance is in a very busy area. Take the wide concrete path between the Shell and Chevron stations. There is a RV sign further south but it is unknown where this leads. - rossby
