6 Parks near Ennis, Texas

This is a nice park close enough to the Dallas area for a weekend getaway. We stayed for two nights, and the park was nice and quiet. There is not much to do there, but it is a great place to get away if that is what you are looking for. - Aggiepi

There are 3 parks at Bardwell Lake available for camping. We camped at Mott Park and had a nice lakefront site, which we were able to select online. Even though it was a holiday weekend, the spaces are far enough apart that it did not seem crowded or noisy. Some sites require a lot of leveling, and some are 30-amp only, but the reservation system will tell you this. This is a no-frills park, but the scenery is lovely and a perfect getaway if you want to just get out of town, enjoy nature, and relax. - Lucydog

Gate attendants were friendly and knowledgeable. Sites were trashy. Sites are not real level but in site 8 we were able to level our 5th wheel. Not going to mention the homeless trailer that is an eye sore: surprised COE allowed the situation in the park. - From the Kites

The park is a natural beauty. However seeing the previous reviews, we were very disappointed and our lower rating is directly related to poor management. On the good side, the gate attendants are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the park and the area. The electricity is steady and water pressure is about 65 PSI. The sites do not have sewer hook ups but there is a dump station located at the end of the camping loop. There are 2 loops, the larger one has some 50 amp, but the smaller one is all 30 amp. Very few sites are level, some large motorhomes may struggle to get level. All sites have a water view. However, the bad here is that the park management is allowing a homeless family to occupy a park host site in a very derelict trailer. 2 younger adults, 3 children, 2 dogs and a cat. There is no vehicle to move the trailer which is falling apart, the slide is decrepit, open at the top to the elements. The slide and roof are covered with tarps, the unit has a window and half the door boarded up with wood, there were several window AC units. No apparent tote or vehicle to move waste to the dump, we were dismayed to see the drain connection simply open to the ground. Junk and trash all over the site. Dogs left tied up outside 24/7, barking at passersby, yipping and whining at everything else. When we asked park staff about the situation, we were told there were "extenuating circumstances". The people did not work for the park while we were there. There were several sites that had trash in them, and fire pits had not been cleaned. We probably would not visit there again until this situation is resolved. - Fixn2gocamp

The roads in this park have deteriorated and need some work. Sites are not level with significant front to back slopes. Asphalt sites are spacious, and grounds are manicured, and have great views of the lake. Each site has a covered patio with a large picnic table, Bar-b-q/fire pit and a generous space for parking a vehicle. Water and electric only; dump station. - the Fishers

As in many RV parks around Dallas the park tenants here are for the most part are transient workers. Some of their campers made us shudder with the creeps, for example aged FEMA trailers with all the windows covered with foil. The upside of sharing a campground with workers is that they go to work, on weekdays the park empties out by 7 AM and it's very quiet. All sites are "back in" but most are nice and wide, even a novice RVer won't have a problem, just avoid the few sites that sit at awkward angles. They do allow you to drive down and pick any site you want, set up and then report back to the office. Solid and fairly level concrete pads and wide concrete roads. Clean 50 amp service, good sewer hook up. I disagree with an earlier post there's very limited shade available. Get used to train noise, two railways cut through town, and one is just 500 yards over the creek from the park. The trains run night and day and it will take a bit of getting used to the whistles through the night but you do become accustomed to the noise and the gentle vibrations. We stayed here two months and felt welcome and safe. The cost was very reasonable (plus electricity) the owners leave you alone. Across the creek sits a wonderful 7 3/4 mile long hike and bike path we recommend you walk the North path, it follows the Creek for 1 3/4 miles and is very pleasant and the view varies. The South path goes for 6 miles and is not nearly as varied in scenery. Now about the rental apartments built by the storage and RV park owner. You will be amused driving by the little ghetto of transformed storage units, these people are living in little box's with no sanitation, they use communal men's and ladies' showers and washrooms and the dress of choice most days is pajama's and furry slippers, Howard Hughes would be proud. Don't worry, they keep to themselves. - Bri & Max

Maneuvering is very easy, the sites are relatively level, all the hookups work, the dump station is easy to use and even in the Texas heat, there was enough shade to keep things reasonable. This is a campground I will always return to. - tbax46

Even though this is the best RV Park Waxahachie has to offer, it's still not much. It is located behind a storage facility. There are RV's parked in the storage facility with people living in them. There are 2 pole barn type structures with several apartments in them. The lots are very small, and the small winding drives make it very difficult to maneuver and park your rig. It is located in a very bad section of town. All in all, the drives and lots are all paved with paved small patios. I think this is because of the creek that runs along side the park. When it rains a lot, I have been told, the creek overflows into the park and it has to be evacuated. I was also told that when the creek rises to not go into the high grass along the creek because of copperhead snakes. All of the campers, except for us and one other camper, were work campers who have jobs in the area and live here. I will not stay here again, and that is too bad because Waxahachie is a nice little town close to Dallas. - leftyfaye

We stayed here while visiting relatives in the area. Nothing special about the park, but it had a nice long pull through site, plenty of room for motorhome and tow vehicle. Full hookups, no cable. Lots of permanent residences, but they are located in a separate part of the park. Would stay here again. - Sally Chew

Transferred to area and only expected to stay 1- 1 1/2 months until we found house. We stayed about 7 months. Staff is very friendly. During heavy rains area did not flood. The back side of the park is for monthly residents and is clean for RV park. Half has trees the other half is open skies. The daily spots are maintained and have concrete slabs and trees. On occasion they rent out their clubhouse for dances and other events, only a few times did we hear the music. Will stay again if in the area. - Tjbac

Restricted height clearance from overgrown trees. Bathrooms/showers need a complete remodel. No cable TV or high speed Internet access. TV reception fair, channels very limited.
Wireless signal strength issues. Many cluttered lots.
Sites need to reworked. Many old and dirty campers in various states of disrepair.
Trash dumpsters overflowing, smelly and unlit. Dark.
Covered dish events would be nice. A pool and clubhouses too.
Needs upgrades everywhere. - rvpro290

Location of this park is terrific, easy access to Dallas and the gentleman that checked us in was very polite. However, the filthy bathrooms ruined our visit. Smoky with cigarette butts in the sinks and ashtrays in toilet stalls. Showers had no hooks or bench, forcing us to dress right out in the bathroom. Cold & hot water faucets were switched around. Pull through sites had just enough room for RV, but trees needed trimming to allow for easier access. A vehicle parked by the bathroom made driving out of our site difficult. We would Not recommend this park. - Twilight

We stayed in the park for 2 and a half weeks. At first it was ok, however as the week passed, the night manager became rude and intolerable. The rules state that quiet time is 9pm to 8am. The night manager (who was usually intoxicated) would be yelling across the park or talking extremely loud knowing that people had to be up early the next morning for work. He also stuck his neighbor's water hose down his toilet to clean out his black water tank. Most of the people in the park are locals. The managers, Joe and Shari are very kind are doing the best they can. It's too bad their help lacks in customer service. - The Green Monster

We were looking for a place to stay a week and check out Cedar Creek Lake as a retirement home. Found this jewel of a CG on Google. The owner acquired the CG about two years ago and has made many improvements and promises more to come, including internet and enclosed storage for RV's. The CG is across the street from a channel off the lake and has a boat launch, as well as a pontoon boat to rent. The roads are gravel and the sites are grass. The grounds are immaculate and the owner and the staff are great. There is plenty of room to exercise the dog. We are returning in the spring. - User1581

This place has grown on us. Just pull in, set up and settle up with the manager later. Very laid back. Always quiet. It's the only campground with monthly tenants that I like. The Passport-America rate makes it very affordable. Lake access is across the road and they don't maintain the pool, but the laundry is reasonable. A good place if you want to check out the Cedar Creek Lake area. - north_texas_class_c_rver
