This "RV Resort" is nothing but a run-down parking lot. Probably 95% of the sites are occupied by people that live there year round and let their junk pile up around their rigs. The sites are basically gravel and broken up concrete and are so close together that I doubt that you will be able to put out an awning. I would only stay here again in an emergency. This place is shameful. We camped at Sandy Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this park for two weeks. First off, park has long term residents, who have trash and personal items all over and under their travel trailers. Sites are way too close together and navigating the roads and backing in is impossible. Sites are very unleveled and the sewer hookups are far away from where you park. Out of necessity we were going to make reservation there again due to another park being closed when we said we had two adults and a puppy 8wks old, they asked what breed, we replied chow shepard mix, the told us we could no longer stay there due to our dog being a aggressive breed. 8wk old puppy! Dog friendly?? I think not. We camped at Sandy Lake RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We arrived after dark, the office was closed, we called the number on the front door and a man came and led us to our spot.

I was shocked with how tight this property is. We had to ask the camper next to us to please retract their awning while I tried to get into this site. I have a 44 foot motorhome and these sites are not suitable to anything as large as our unit.

I've paid less for a lot more and we will remove this site from our list of camp grounds.

We find that this park is really a campground for the construction workers in the Dallas area. We camped at Sandy Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

The major benefit to this park is its location - convenient to get to Dallas and the northern suburbs. The sites are very close together. On this stay, we were near the front of the park (site 107), and found it to be much preferable to sites further back - primarily because the roads in the back half of the RV park have quite a lot of slope to them. The roads near the front are not so sloping and there isn't a large slope to the sites. We camped at Sandy Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

In November, the pecan trees are sharing their wealth, so we got to enjoy a lot of native Texas pecans at our site!

Way overpriced for what you get. Sites are very close together almost touching neighbor's rig when awning is extended. Reasonably friendly staff. Laundry room out of service. We camped at Sandy Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were a little leery about this park but it was a pleasant surprise. The staff was extremely polite, it was convenient to everything we wanted, and it was very quiet. It was clean and the wifi was good. They have lot's of activities, if you are into that. Yes, it is a little outdated but many are and we aren't looking for a lot of "fu-fu". Yes we would stay here again. We camped at Sandy Lake RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The sites are so close you can reach out and touch your neighbor. The turns are way too tight in a big rig. Roads in desperate need of repair. This is a combo mobile home and RV park. Most of the residents are long term. Not kid friendly at all and desk staff was rude. Rules apply to only people they want to enforce them on. We will never stay here again.

Old park with very small spaces but nice people and easy to get in and out of. Would not do a long term stay. We blocked and paid for a week but left after 5 days. IMO a bit expensive for what it is. We camped at Sandy Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a place to plug in, check email, and do laundry. Most of the sites are either mobile homes or RVs parked here on a long term basis. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. This is an older park with rougher roads and sites, lower standards with regard to what long term residents can do on their sites, etc. The pool was clean and there is a small dog pen which came in handy. The Wi-Fi connection was better than average. We camped at Sandy Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here under Passport America and felt the rate to be very reasonable. The park is definitely dated, interior roads are a bit rough in spots and spaces are close together. What was outstanding for us and the reason for the higher score is the management and staff. They were most helpful and efficient at check-in, including the person who directed us to our site. Both of us were ill while here and they quickly and efficiently accommodated extending our time in our site even though the site had been reserved for the next day. Management is new and seems to be doing all the right things to achieve customer satisfaction. We will definitely return if in the area. We camped at Sandy Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park in a very desirable location in northeast Dallas. The facilities are very clean and nice and the staff are friendly and helpful. We are monthly campers and have been here nine months. There is a nice fenced dog park, pool and great clubhouse. We love it here! We camped at Sandy Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The only good thing I can say about the park is that the staff and residents all seem to be very courteous and helpful. I have been RVing for around 40 years and this is one of the worst campgrounds I have found. Extremely crowded to the extent the RV's almost touched each other. My RV is 50 amp, but had to get by on 30. I guess, though, that when all of the available sites are full, as they seemed to be, they must be doing something right, although it was hard for me to see what it is. I would not stay here again nor would I recommend this park to anyone. We camped at Sandy Lake RV Park in a Campground Cabin.

It was okay for one night but very over priced. The campsites are extremely close together. The roads are in disrepair, rutted with potholes and most of the asphalt has eroded away to the point that it's more of a hazard than a help. There is barely enough room for your trailer or motorhome and almost impossible to squeeze in a truck pulling the trailer or your towed car. We would not stay at this campground again and would definitely not recommend it to friends and family. We camped at Sandy Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects 2 nights at $20 per night Passport America rate and 1 night at $40 per night regular rate. FHU 50 amp gravel pull-through site. This is not a resort, just a corporate owned campground with extremely tight sites. Luckily we had a site on the end of a row so getting in and out wasn't too bad. Pool was closed, no hot tub. Good free wi-fi. No way worth $40 per night. Would not stay here again. We camped at Sandy Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park was clean, but there were many permanent residents who had junk around their trailers. Spaces were cramped, and a little hard to manuever. No fenced dog area. The staff and residents were very friendly; it was a very quiet and a good neighborhood. I would stay here again. We camped at Sandy Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.
