This mobile home community had some unused land so put in sites for RVs right along the fence separating it from the busy 4 lane road. Traffic noise loud and All Night. We had electric, water, sewer, and we had internet. But the access road to the site was narrow, rutted, and once at the site, had no good way to exit. They seem to have put two RVs on one mobile home site with a shared driveway that is not in front of either. So you might drop off the curb getting out. Certainly want to unhitch if towing, and you couldn't fit in anyway with it attached. When I checked in, was told to follow the signs and not given map, instructions, or anything else. It was not as simple as it sounded. If ever in the area again, we would either stay at Walmart or keep on going. - Too-wow

This was a very nice park. Our only complaint was the sewer. We had to put an extension on to reach our connection. We prefer pull through sites, and this park has only backins. Very well maintained park with grass and concrete slabs. All interior roads are paved. Staff was very friendly. Big rig friendly. We will stay here again. - cgavagan

This RV Park is part of an established mobile home park. It is at a major intersection on US390 between Denton and McKinney. We stay there because it is only about 5 miles from our grandkids. The park staff is friendly but the RV facilities are basic--water, sewer, electric(50 and 30 AMP). The sites may not be level and have a little gravel with grass including grass burs. Since we are away most everyday and basically just sleep there, it meets our needs. The wifi is spotty and may not work. Expect a lot of traffic noise in the early mornings and later evenings. - Tim and Susan

I have traveled for seven years and this is the worst dump I have experienced. Tiny, dirty pool was closed, train tracks 50 yards away with trains coming through every 30 min., large rats, possums, feral cats roaming the park and copper head snakes. A resident was bitten while I was there and almost died. Owners did NOTHING. Dilapidated uninhabited buildings in various states of decay (perfect turf for wild animals, rats, snakes), no bathrooms, laundry room has four antiquated machines and filthy. The wireless internet is so poor just get used to the message "connection timed out." The pictures on their site and info is a farce. The positive reviews are obviously created by people with bias. If you don't believe me get here early with plenty of daylight and take a good look around before you give these crooks your money. I came in late, paid for a week in advance and was very upset by their dishonesty. Stay away! - Open Road Traveller

This is a very old campground with not a whole lot of amenities. Not one of the nicer ones - rg7438

NO cable TV!! Park is very tight even with our 38 ft motor home. The office was impossible to find and when we did there was no through way for the RV TO PROCEED. We had to unhook and back out. Lots of full time residents. Swimming pool was closed. - mkfore

This is a great park located in a urban area. I seen some comments about hearing traffic noise from the highway and airport but we really didn't notice it at all and we were at the front end of the park and wasn't an issue for us. The pool was very clean and refreshing, I could see it being a little warm in the hot summer but it is a pool with plenty of sun for sunbathing and the hot tub does flow into the pool. The park is probably 85% long term but that does also say a lot for the campground. We met some of the residents and they all seemed to love the park and staff. All the sites were very well maintained and clean. They have a nice children's play area, onsite RV wash, Recreation room, Well stocked store, Propane onsite, Open grassy area for sports and recreation.
The WiFi signal was strong and easy to connect to but was a little on the slow side, but it is free and worked well for email and browsing the internet.
Cellular service with AT&T was low but still worked well for calls and text.
Check-in was fast and easy and our site was easy to get to and get parked, the site required very little to level our rig. Nice picnic table but didn't have a charcoal grill (went and bought a cheap little one at Walmart as we needed a portable one for the RV anyway).
Only real con to this park is we are used to camping near the lake or forest and was a little different for us, but we were in Denton for a UNT football game and sure beat staying at hotel by far. They have an off-leash area for dogs but there isn't a barrier between it and the service road. - Back to the basics

Nice place right off I-35. Construction on highways to get here is awful. The park is very nice. Like a little neighborhood. The spots are nice and pretty roomy. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The little path to get to our site was a little sketchy and needs to be repaved. The pool looked inviting but we didn't use. Nice area to walk pets. - cmiller

We stayed two nights. 40 foot diesel pusher pulling a toad. The park is easy on and off the highway with little street or road noise. Staff was courteous and welcoming. All hook ups worked fine. Site was hard to level. We had to shore up wood to get it right. There was lot of space to walk about with the dog. We use our dish and antenna and have our own WIFI. There WIFI worked good for basic stuff. We would stay here again. - rdmike

Campground has beautiful gravel sites. Another camper told us that last year this entire peninsula was under water and therefore they have had to rebuild all the sites. The sites are built up with large 8x8 timbers outlining the sites and holding in the gravel. It appeared that each site had a picnic table, grill, and fire ring. There were a few pull through sites in the middle. Though the road in the campground is narrow, we did not have problems navigating it with our 43' motorhome, nor did we have problems with branches attacking the roof as another reviewer indicated. There was a limb overhanging near the entrance of site 45 that we were careful to avoid when backing in and when leaving the site.
Note that you may not want to overhang the 8x8 timbers if you are going to air-level your motorhome - ours would have tried to sit the tow bar down on top of the timber if we hadn't made sure that we were far enough forward of the timber before leveling. - pattic777

Parked here for two nights in a 43 ft toy hauler, and space 38 had plenty of room for everything. Right on Lake Lewisville with easy access to fish or boat. Plenty of shade. 50 amp service with clean water with good pressure. Looks like all spaces have ba grill, campfire grill, table and hook for light. I had no trouble on my auto level on my rig. Fellow checking us in was super friendly. It is only about 15 minutes north of Carrolton and 12 from Denton. Will definitely return. - Don Self

This park was a Jeckyl/Hyde for us. Power was solid, ran two A/C's, fridge on electric and water heater on electric during daytime temps hitting 100 deg without any voltage dips. Our site was at least a 90' long pull-thru. Park staff goes out of their way to be friendly.
That was the Jeckyl part, now for the Hyde. This place is covered over with RV-clawing trees. My 5th wheel is a little taller than average at 13'6" but some of the limbs I had to dodge were at least two feet below my roof-line. Interior roads are paved but very narrow and they allow campers to park their cars and trucks off the edge of the road. Getting past those vehicles is like threading a needle. The trees in my site were so close to my roof that I could not deploy my sat dish or my over the air antenna. But even with the OTA antenna laying flat on the roof I got 40 channels. Almost everything except CBS.
My rate was higher than previous posters because I was a non-resident. This place is definitely a local favorite as evident by the weekend crowds. This is a $25 park, it is not a $35 park. - jperry29

We stayed at Hickory Creek in multiple sites in November and December, 2016. Note that some sites are quite sloping - we originally booked site 10 and we would have had the front end (and door) of our motorhome *way* off the ground to get level there. Sites we stayed in that were reasonably level were 13, 34, 52, and 95.
Seniors get half price which is $14 for 30A or $15 for 50A.
Good walking areas throughout the park. Note that the entrance gate closes at 10pm and it is a mile+ walk to the campground. Ranger recommended we leave one vehicle inside the gate if we would be returning after 10pm - but we only have the one tow vehicle in addition to the motorhome. (We moved to another location for the weekend when we had late evening events scheduled.)
Hickory Creek is most convenient to Denton, and it isn't too bad for getting onto I-35E (but the construction on I-35E is awful). Hickory Creek is our favorite of the 3 parks we have stayed at in this area - best value for the money - as long as you don't need to be out after 10pm. Use Waze on your smartphone to help with directions when you're returning to the campground, especially after 8pm, as sometimes there are exits closed due to the construction. - pattic777

This is a very nice park and the spaces are large. Easy back in spaces and pull through. The restroom and shower facilities were roomy and clean. The biggest downside to this park is the policy of locking the entry gate at 10:00 pm. I you are attending a function of some kind in DFW area you will be forced to leave early to make the one hour drive back to the park. It is a VERY long walk if you get locked out. Other than that it's a very nice park to stay in. - Greg S.

We camped her in a 28 foot Class A , no tow vehicle. The Site was back-in, gravel and absolutely level! It had a picnic table and concrete apron to step out on. The power held good amps and voltage and water pressure was great. There was access to the boat ramp and many areas to walk in. That was the upside. Things to be aware of. The staff member at the entry gate provided no map, just "follow the signs". There was no mention of the bath house hot water being "under repair" or that the on-site sewer was apparently overwhelmed by recent rain or something else. Yes, it blew out in the first 5 seconds of the start of the dump. Fortunately, it went south and I was standing north!. And, if you are leaving the campground, be back by 11 pm, or maybe 10 pm, as when the gate closes, you are walking to your campsite - 1.5 miles inside??? - DHK

We actually didn't stay here. The office is a run-down mobile home. The "manager" was next door in another mobile home. When he appeared, he wore no shoes, his socks were falling down around his ankles. He had a scraggly beard, was dirty and not presentable and appeared to be disoriented. He was scary. He said the sites were not for overnight stay, but weekly or monthly. He preferred monthly guests and the rate was $385. The entrance was poorly marked ( a small hand painted sign nailed to a telephone pole ). The pool was drained and there was some brush and trash in it. The interior roads are gravel and from what I could see in very poor condition. At most campgrounds/RV parks, you can safely sit around a campfire with other campers. I would be very reluctant to invite those I saw from the entrance to my campfire. Their website says, among other things, to "stay" in your RV. I had difficulty understanding this until I saw the place. I think it means that you're only safe if you stay inside with the doors locked. - Texas_Camper

Got to the park and not what was on web site. The office road was one way and the tight turns and brush made it hard to get our 33 foot fifth wheel through. Was not allowed to see park before paying. Tried to park us on cliff with real deep gravel started to sink. No trees like web site showed. Sewer lines on top of ground, stopped up. We paid for month, got back all but 35.00 back for their trouble. Will never go back. - LBJMCBRIDE4X4
Oct 2015 - $30.00
OK for overnight only. No cable, no WiFi, no discounts. Very narrow sites. Sign in at adjacent liquor store. Stayed because all the others in the area were full. Would pass on this park in the future. - twocoots

I pulled into this RV park late in the day in order to avoid an approaching storm. It is conveniently located just off I35W. While it did have nice long, level concrete pull-through sites, the lack of WiFi was a big disappointment for me. There are also a lot of long-term residents in the park, and some of their sites could definitely be a little neater. Lack of restrooms and showers may be a factor to some. I would only likely stop here again if there were no other options. - Phaeton40AH
Dec 2011 - $30.00
This RV park is easy on and off of I-35W but that's the best thing I can say. There's no Wi-Fi, no picnic tables, no showers/restrooms, no laundry and the sites are very tight. Most of the tenants appear to be construction workers, so you can expect lots of diesel pickup truck traffic through the park. This is the only RV park I've ever seen with a 20 mph speed limit, and still no one obeys it. - RockyandBullwinkle

This park closed in April 2015. It will soon be retail space. - arkanshaw

Like it was said previously, this park is mostly permanent homes, with some RV sites. The sites are hard to get to, narrow roads, big trees. Site itself is grass, narrow, not level. To exit the site you have to go over a curb, and dodge the parked cars. - wilpower
Apr 2008 - $20.00
This campground amounts to a few spaces adjacent to mostly manufactured homes development. Most of the residents appear to be transient. The sites are small, grass, uneven, and there are no amenities. Unfortunately, we paid in advance and when our situation changed they refused to refund our money, so our stay, actually, cost us $40. per night. We would never stay here again. - greengal

Stopped by for one night. The owners & workers were wonderful. The alpacas were fun to watch & even more fun to hand feed. Because of this we decided to stay a second night. If you can get by with water/electric only, ask for the site by the barn. It offers the best view of the alpacas. - Tinisu

Great place to stay when you are in the Denton area. We have stayed at Wagon Master a number of times with each experience being extremely positive. We love the alpacas and especially the alpaca guard dogs. You can't go wrong staying here. (WiFi can be a little slow but that is just typical of RV parks...) Thanks to the owners for always making our stay enjoyable!!
The pull through sites in the wagon wheel area are spacious. There only a few trees, so you get the full Texas sun. Each site has a picnic table, but there is no fire ring. Sewer connections are placed at the rear of some sites, so you might need a line extension. All the roads are gravel, but in relatively good shape. - cgaskins

This was the first day of our sixty day journey. Wife and I are celebrating our Sixtieth Wedding Anniversary with our sixty day journey - one day for each year. This was the perfect park with which to begin our journey. The managing couple are gracious and generous with their spirit and wisdom. This is among the best parks in which we have stayed! We enjoyed our stay in our Airstream 30 foot Classic. - AIRSTREAM1165

Check in was quick and easy, and the young woman was friendly. There are some pull through and many back in sites. Most sites have some slope to them, but nothing insurmountable. All sites have good separation, and the shady ones also have vegetation in between, adding to the sense of privacy. We did run into a problem after arriving at our site. We plugged in our Electrical Management System, and found that the electric outlet was wired backwards. (reverse polarity) I called the office and they sent someone out. He said there is no such thing as reverse polarity in this park! Anyway, after coming and going several times between his boss and I, he finally agreed to rewire the pedestal. After that, no problems. We were able to pick up many OTA TV stations, and Verizon coverage was good. No wifi at site. Park has both concrete and dirt paths, and a swimming area with a nice sandy beach. - BrentB

This Texas SP must be among the nicest in this area. Wonderful walking trails through the woods, well kept sandy beach, very clean restrooms and showers. This was our second visit and is our to go spot when staying close to home. - Jim Butler

This is a wonderful State Park, and we keep returning. We even have a favorite site, 62. It is hard to beat the relaxation and enjoyment of this ample wooded, quiet, lakeside location. The wide variety of birds and the frequent visits from grazing deer at our site was delightful. Unfortunately, there is no sewer at the campsites, only a dump station. The rate for our 30 amp site was $25, but we also had to pay entrance fees which accounts for the total of $33 per night. We went to McDonalds in Sanger for internet access. - Scott & Nancy
