Our rate was for W/E only. So far, I'm not getting a good impression of TX state parks, and coming to Dallas I had hoped this would be an exception. The roads and parking pads are very beat up and crumbling apart. There are plenty of sites to look through, but most of them seem to have only been built for parking cars to camp in tents. Our site in Coyote Point #313 was pretty good, except we had a tent neighbor for the entire week-long stay who we learned through his constant fights with his girlfriend that he lives in his tent with her and their toddler. Not sure how they pull that off with a 14-max stay. I also noticed another young adult who would park his car in random parking spot and stay there for hours, possibly another homeless kid. The bathrooms are the worst I've come across in my 7 full-timing months of RVing. They were not clean - dead bugs littered the floors, large spiders making nests everywhere, and black-colored mold on the wooden ceiling. There are 2 shower stalls with curtains only, and the dressing area is shared and can't be locked for privacy. We do work online so Verizon coverage is important - we were able to get 2-3 bars of LTE data on our MiFi. I probably would have been happier here if we weren't given a site right next to someone else... it's my fault for not moving. But I still give an average rating due to the poor road conditions and bath houses need to be demolished and rebuilt. We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The location of this park is what made it so convenient. Within 3 miles of the park is pretty much anything you need: Walmart, Sprouts Farmers Market, restaurants, an outdoor mall, Home Depot, auto mechanics, etc.

Nice state park. Good place to stay when visiting Dallas as others have mentioned. We had a good level site and were able to fit our 40' rig but there are a lot of very small sites and many un-level sites. No wifi but good verizon service. Many lake view sites with good spacing between sites. You can even see the city lights of Cedar Hill at night. We would stay here again when coming through Dallas. We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Motorhome.

Cedar Hill State Park is gigantic urban park. 300+ sites. Expect road noise from nearby highway. Higher site and entrance fees than more rural Texas State Parks. We were in full hookup loop with concrete pads. We were in #149 which was very private. Some sites have good lake views. We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly staff. Pads are concrete with full hookups. Great place to stay while touring Dallas. Only complaint would be restrooms were not cleaned daily. Would stay here again. We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is located 3 miles south of I-20 just off FM1382 and south of Fort Worth. It is a large wooded park with lots of undergrowth. Primary roads are very good. Roads in the loops are somewhat beat up. We had no problem with overhanging trees since there has been tree trimming. The pads in the Eagle Ford area are cement and newly paved. The pads in the Lakeview loop are asphalt and are at the end of their useful life. Both of these loops have full E/W/S, and the sites have fire rings and a picnic table (some of which are covered). It looks like there has been a recent electrical upgrade. Recommend that upon registration you take your toad and check out the assigned site since some are very short and can just handle a truck camper or class B. Some are large enough for a 40 ft rig, and some could take a 43. Lots of trees but we could use our dish. Note that this is the northern end of a hilly area, and some of the sites are not level. A few will require a lumber yard to get your rig level. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Super staff. The park is very clean with no trash around. There is a marina, beach (sort of), bike trails, jogging trails, playgrounds in the woods, and lots of things for families with kids to enjoy. It is also adjacent to the Penn Farm historical area. We could see the trucks on I-20 3 miles across the lake, but could not hear them. There is some noise from the adjacent farm road especially if your site is near the road. Coming in or leaving there is a parking area so you can unhook or hook up your toad. We were here in late November, and it was very quiet. You could count the campers on one hand; but in the summer it is probably jammed due to its location. Visiting Dallas or Fort Worth? Then this is the RV park to use. We will be back. We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You are 30 minutes from the George W Bush Presidential Library and Museum, and the same to Grapevine, Fort Worth Stockyards, etc. Although in the country, you can see the skyscrapers. Once south of I-20 the traffic clears up.

Large state park with big sites and full hookups. Great biking both "on road" (the park's roadways are extensive) as well as a popular mountain bike trail. Lots of beach, marina, and picnic areas. Very convenient to Cedar Hill for dining and shopping. Lots of additional dining options just to the North on I-20. Beautiful hills and the lake make this a beautiful park. We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Motorhome.

$30 rate is if your have Texas State Parks pass, which we bought ($70 for year). If you have pass, you can get one night half price at each park you stay. I would have rated higher, but sites are extremely sloped! We didn't have enough boards to get our RV level. So, drive in and check site first. Other than that, it is a good park. Convenient to Dallas/Fort Worth area. Our Verizon MiFi worked good. We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Motorhome.

$30 per night was for a full-hookup site. A daily entrance fee is also charged unless you have a $70 Texas State Parks Pass, which is good to cover entry fee to all state parks for one year. There are several campgrounds located within the heavily treed park that offer everything from backcountry camping to full-hookup sites on level concrete pads. The park is located very close to Dallas and the city of Cedar Hill offers every convenience one could think of. If you like off-road biking, there are 15 miles of trails and there are miles of hiking trails. If you like fishing, there is Joe Pool Reservoir. Spacing between the sites is generous with some of them being very private. We received full cell/text service on our AT&T phone, receiving four bars LTE. We used our Millenicom jetpack as a Wi-Fi hotspot (there is Wi-Fi at the park office) and it worked very well. We received over 50 OTA TV stations including CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, and PBS. We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Motorhome.

Internal roads are paved, sites are not level, bring your boards, but are spacious, facilities worked well, site was satellite friendly. Staff were friendly, Virgin Mobile MiFi did not work well, AT&T cell service was good. The park was quiet. Rate is based on having a Texas State Park pass. We would stay here again.

Convenient location to shopping and attractions. Went to six flags 4 days in a row and it's about a 20 minute drive. You will need a $70 state park pass or pay additional $7/day. Park offers lots of trees, outdated electrical boxes, very long check-in process, and no Wi-Fi at the site. Some sites can hold big rigs. Sewer sites are $5 more. It is a large park with hiking, fishing, city and lake views,and a marina. We even saw a bobcat. We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Motorhome.

We had no trouble with the electric service. It was consistent and our surge protector never interrupted service. However, while this park is scenic and people at the desk were very friendly, this is not a quiet park. It is near a busy 4 lane highway. Also, while our site was level and of adequate length for our 35' coach, many sites appeared to be too short for anything but a small trailer and many appeared unlevel. The restroom was not clean and there was a tree overhanging our site that needed trimming. However, many sites are full hookups which is unusual for a Texas State Park. The main plus is the park's proximity to all the metroplex attractions. It is only about 12 miles from a DART station. We will probably return for that reason. We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park in Dallas. Convenient to shopping, suburbia, and yet you feel like you are in the woods. Some traffic noise and a typical state park camping where neighbors can stay up late with music and no one patrols for quiet hours. We would visit again though, just choose neighbors more carefully. We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Again, the electricity at a Texas State Park has been out of limits for surge protection systems: this time 131 volts on both legs. What this means to us, is that we must spend the night with the generator running. I have asked the Director of Texas Parks and Wildlife to initiate a check of systems at all parks, lest RVs are damaged due to this oversight. Otherwise, Cedar Hill is a decent park. Many sites are short doublewide pads, not suitable for our 45 foot rig. Our own pad is filled by the RV, but there is a small parking lot nearby for our towed car. We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of our favorite parks. The recent improvements to the big rig sites are great! Our rig is 45' and we have plenty of room. Good walking trails and you are right on the water. Marina inside the park with restuarant. One of our most visited parks. We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cedar Hill State Park is a real gem and close to a major metropolitan area. We camped here on a perfect spring weekend directly on the lake. It was still quiet and uncrowded but 20 minutes from downtown Dallas. If you are staying more than a couple of days and depending on the number in your party it is a wise decision to buy a Texas State Park Pass ($70). There is a $7/per person per day state park entrance fee. We have a state park pass so this was waived for our party of four and we received a discount on camping. Texas is a big state so we use the pass a lot even though we are not residents. $25 does not reflect pass discount. The park has full hook ups as well as just electric and water or primitive. Many sites weave around Joe Poole Lake. There is hiking, kayak rentals, and other lake activities. The sites are huge with nice sheltered picnic tables and fire rings. Rangers are all friendly professionals and when we were there a nice group of volunteers. For a state park it is pretty big rig friendly and is an excellent jumping point for visiting the Dallas Fort Worth area. Cedar Hill has all modern amenities and close to Interstate 20. We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Motorhome.
