We stayed in gold site 85, backup, overlooking lake. This would have been worth it if we could have driven in, because the view out of the windshield was the road. This site also has afternoon sun. A silver pull through like site 78 has a better view as well as afternoon shade provided by the shadow of your motorhome. Some sites appeared not level as coaches had the front tires off the ground. Pretty grounds, friendly and helpful host, great location with excellent restaurants. We will return. - Travel Well

This was our second stay in this park. It's a lovely setting. The sites are large and well separated. Most are pretty level. We paid extra for a premium lake-front site, although the lake level is pretty low. Wifi works really well, lots of networks to choose from. The park is clean, well-maintained, and secure. It's a little pricey but that's our only complaint. We would stay here again. - Pull Toy

Stayed in site that backed up to the lake. Unfortunately, the lake is so low, it wasn't there. No fault of the campground. Nice staff, good space. Lots of room. Close to all the sites of Dallas/Fort Worth. - Linda604

Pilot Knoll Park campground is a beautiful park on Lewisville Lake. It is operated by the city of Highland Village. Wooded sites and most all are on the lake or have lake views. Sites are $25/night and have 50A electric and water with a central dump station. Back in and pull throughs available. Most sites can accommodate large RV's. Reserve online through the Highland Village website. We were in site 30 (primo site) this trip. We've camped here many times and will return. - drfife

Great place for a weekend gateway. 5 minutes from town but feels like your away except for airport traffic. Highland Village is a very safe Dallas suburb. So if you are travling through and looking for a safe spot this is a great option. 50 amp electrical and water hookup. Excellent pressure as I had to turn down my regulator. Utilities are dedicated so no sharing a utility pole. No issues running AC. - QFamCA

We camped at Pilot Knoll Park in Highland Village, TX, in site 32 for $25/night in November 2014. We've camped here many times and will return. Several sites have great lake views. 50A sites available and some are 30A only. Asphalt pads. Central dump station. Good walking and hiking trails. Great urban park. Walmart, groceries and restaurants 3 miles away. They have their own reservation system through the City of Highland Village. Intimidating at first, but easy to use once you set up an account. - drfife

We have stayed at this camp site for a few years now. Always loved it felt like home. But as of recently park has gone down hill. Laundry facilities are always out of order, one out of the four washers is always out of order even dryers dont dry clothes. Bathrooms and showers are filthy, used razors laying around. Now on to the biggest thing, transients! Drunk dirty homeless people wandering in harassing rv'ers trying to get into the bathroom facilities. Hanging out at all times of the night. Asking to use your restroom in your RV. Doesnt feel safe anymore. Also may patrons living in vans with personal property laying all over the outside. This all makes me sad since this place used to be great. The city meeds to put some real money and time into this site. - Gypsymama22

We enjoyed our stay at the Lewisville Lake Park Campground. The location is convenient to access places in the DFW area. The site was nice with adequate space between RVs. The restroom and laundry room were reasonably clean and well maintained.
When we were there, the lake level was high and rising, so the staff indicated that some of the sites would possibly need to move (30 amp sites), but the 50 amp sites were well high and not subject to flooding.
No sewer hookups but dump is conveniently located; we're used to boondocking so it isn't a challenge to stay a week or more without dumping. Price is hard to beat for seniors! - pattic777
May 2015 - $8.00
A nice campground. Some rules are very strict: Don't put any part (a single tire) of your RV or other vehicle on the ground/grass outside of the designated parking area. Do not arrive before 1:30pm. NO registration or admittance before 1:30pm. It doesn't matter if your reserved site empty or not, you will not be allowed in. You will be told to park somewhere and come back at 1:30pm. If there are no sports events at the near by ball field/soccer field parking you can park there until 1:30pm.
Ok. Got that gripe out! The park is nice. Some sites have great views of the lake. Easy access to the NW part of the Dallas area. Price is right for Seniors (don't remember age restrictions), 1/2 off of the $18 for 50 amp & $16 for 30amp. No sewer, but a dump is on site. Free WiFi which actually works. - A-S_Travels
Nov 2015 - $15.00
Great park with large sites and very big rig friendly. Sites very in size and slope so it is a good idea to drive through before you sign in. No septic at the sites but the dump station is close and easy to use. We were run out by heavy rains causing flooding but this is a rare occurrence. Service would have been excellent except that we were not notified of the evacuation until 6 hours after it was decided. Hard to deal with same day evacuation when you learn about it at 4PM! We would return without question! It's an oasis in the city.. - Beech35p
Nov 2015 - $28.00
Great campground close enough to Dallas to visit attractions. The worse part about our stay was the construction on I35E at the turn off for the camp. We also had the wrong address. If we had the correct address, our GPs would have found it. The address is 1201 Point Vista Road in Hickory Creek, Tx. There was no noise from highway, but we were on the airport flight path. The planes slowed down at night. We were in a site with a view of the lake and we saw deer during our stay. - BigR

Rate is for Senior Pass discount. Wonderful park in a residential area near Dallas. Large sites many with lake view and shade. Partial hookups; water and electric. Good OTA reception; good Verizon cell and MiFi reception. Walmart is within a mile from the park. Stayed nine nights and would return. - Dave51

Very clean. I like the bathrooms all in one. Great for our stay of 2 nights. They are redoing the entrance road to the park, will be great when it is done. - fulltimers2006
Feb 2016 - $36.00
Having stayed there before, it was acceptable, but this time, gosh!
There is a real problem with a park taking your reservations, charging your card, and Not telling you their entrance road was closed! When we got there they said we had to take our 44 foot RV and toad through a parking lot, on a gravel road with low hanging branches, etc. and wouldn't think about giving us a refund ! - JohnBoyToo
Dec 2015 - $42.00
Stayed overnight on two occasions. Nice park layout and close to interstate as well as the restaurant area of Roanoke (which is pretty neat). Park was clean. Construction along entrance road made a muddy mess. Pool was closed for season but looked nice. There was no storm facility and we were there during very heavy thunderstorm including tornadoes in Southeast Dallas. - rwthomasjrfamily

We were pleasantly surprised with this park as it was the alternative since the Vineyards is closed. The park is right on I-35 East which is a little noisy, if that bothers you. The front of the park is transients; the back is very permanent. Our site was treed but we were able to have satellite service. They have a great grassy area in the front which is nice for the dog. Everyone was very nice & accommodating. I would not want to have a lot toward the back, but the front is fine. This is NOT an RV resort like the Vineyards, but it is a convenient, clean place to spend a few days while visiting Dallas. They even have an RV & car wash! - Freedom Bus
Oct 2015 - $44.00
Rate was $38. Good Sams subtracts 10%. Add $2.50 for electric and $4 per kid over age NINE. (My 10 & 11 year old were extra).
Park was small, but otherwise comparable to a Thousand Trails campground. Small pool and Hot tub. Small playground. Exercise room. Meeting hall. Laundry ($1.75 wash / $1.25 dry). Decent camp store. Horseshoes. Dog walk.
Internet was Tengonet, but free. Available at sites. Moderate speed for internet, but good for Tengonet.
Facilities were older, but in decent repair. After hours check is was marked and well-organized.
Sites were VERY close together, but basically dropped in Dallas suburbia- about 1 miles to anything. Interstate noise = YES. Airplane noise = yes. The whole campground is full of tress and pretty shady, which is rare for Texas!
There is a large car wash with a 13' bay with ladders for washing RVs. We fed $10 worth of quarters and got a pretty clean bus.
Overall, we arrived road-weary and worn-down. It was a great place to restock and restore. - mmette00
Sep 2015 - $35.00
This was our second stay at Destiny - on the same site! the park is literally right off I-35E, easy to access. Check-in was smooth. There is a large area to exercise your dog off leash. The pool and hot tub were clean and offered great relaxation after a long day's drive. Call ahead, they have many seasonal campers and sites go quickly. Use the exit BEFORE the one your GPS gives you if you have a large rig and tow. The exit right in front of the park entrance can get tricky, especially with all the construction. - DHK
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
Jul 2013 - $30.00
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
Feb 2016 - $30.00
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. - Gypsymama22
Nov 2015 - $36.00
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. - pattic777
Nov 2015 - $47.00
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. - Victor Mayeron
Feb 2013 - $35.00
Went here when the price was reduced for the "off" season. A nice park but we have been to much nicer and far less expensive parks. $65 on season is ridiculous. It is clean and the senior citizen staff attentive. Over priced and nothing special. I believe this city owned park on a Corps of Engineers park takes advantage of its central Dallas/Fort Worth to overcharge customers. - artgpo
Jun 2015 - $30.00
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

Oct 2012 - $23.00
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
Apr 2015 - $50.00
This is actually a beautiful park with good proximity to Dallas. However I feel it is way overpriced for what it is. The pads are concrete but not level at all. Most sites don't have 50 amp or sewer connections. There are no laundry facilities, no pool, no wifi and poor cellular. BUT, it's a lovely park with lots of space between sites, many of which have a great view of the lake. - Andieham
Mar 2015 - $60.00
The view is beautiful at this park. However, the entry fees have gotten too high and justified us going to other parks instead. Full hook-up sites are too few, and always taken up by people who live in the park. My kids were scared away from this park by kids who lived there who were covered in scabies bumps. 5 or 6 years ago, the park was turned over to Marine Quest from The Colony and there were artist conception drawings of what Marine Quest was going to do with the park. All we got were more boat slips and a shoddy marina. The promise of the expansion of the RV park was never followed through with. We used to store our RV at their storage area, but it became a huge over grown mud hole and had to find another storage facility. I really wish the city would take back control of this beautiful park before it is permanently ruined by the incompetence of Marine Quest. - texasturners3
Apr 2014 - $22.00
Nice wooded campground. Good location for north Dallas and suburbs. Sites are wide and level, some not so deep. The trees overhead had not been trimmed from the winter damage so some sites were not available to us. The odd thing is that the sewer pipes are at the very back of the sites and are at a 45 degree angle. We have stayed here before and will again. - matparis
Apr 2016 - $40.00
Clean park with nice dog walk. Only 2 toilets for entire large patronage. Friendly staff but park is always very busy but they`re expanding with 50 plus sites in a few months. I would come again. - zzzya
Dec 2015 - $16.00
Appears there are new owners and they have made nice improvements. We stayed over the holidays to see family like many others in the park. Outdoor fireplace and grill available, horseshoes and basket ball. Nice well kept pool. They are also expanding and will have more sites. - Buspuppies
Nov 2015 - $25.00
This is a very well kept park occupied by many longer term rv's. Spaces are a little tight but didn't affect the quality of the stay. Pool looked great though we didn't partake. Laundry, exercise room and small library are clean and very nice. Propane and rv washing and waxing is available on site. Make reservations! This park seems to stay pretty full. - Beech35p
May 2010 - $25.00
This park is a gravel lot with 2 rows of back in sites with concrete patios. Most of the occupants seem to be long term residents. No manager on site, you call the telephone number on the sign and pay with a drop box in the laundromat. There are 2 washers and 2 dryers. OK for a one night stop. - Ned
Jun 2015 - $10.00
Only stayed a weekend, so we really don't know that much about the park. The RVS are very close together. The scenery is nothing but rvs, very little trees. This park seems more for long time stays. If you are looking for kake, you won't get it here. The park is right off a busy highway, and across the street from a housing addition. - RVlivinfam
Feb 2014 - $18.00
Rate is weekly rate of $125. Best site we have had here is approx 70 ft long, relatively level pull through. Friendly folks. New bathhouse/laundry building. However, our 50a power sagged badly (as low as 102a) at times (don't run coffeemaker & toaster at same time). Sewer connection is at the far front of site and connection to provided 4" pvc sewer pipe is not possible w/normal equipment PLUS it ran uphill, very low water pressure at times, free WIFI virtually unusable. - AFChap
Apr 2010 - $11.00
Rate reflects $300 monthly rate. Some sites are pretty tight. Many sites have 50amp receptacles that actually are a 14-30R with L shaped neutral that have been "forced" so that a 14-50 plug will fit. They test as a normal 14-50R with a meter, and they have a double-pole 50a breaker on them. Many long-term residents. Rules pretty much not enforced ...stuff stored around/under trailers and pets not picked up after. Grass mowers threw grass debris all over sides of our motorhome, weed eaters shredded sewer hose ...manager promised payment for the hose but we never got it. Septic system aerator sprinkler created stinky swamp around dumpster, with "aroma" sometimes going throughout the park. VERY close train track with slow freights 24hrs. Free WI-FI worthless unless you are parked right next to the office. Unfortunately, there is not much to choose from in the area... - AFChap
Feb 2009 - $1.00
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
Mar 2008 - $35.00
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
Mar 2016 - $18.00
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the dog park as it is separate for large dogs and small dogs. No agility equipment to get in the way of a good run. Location is nice as it is near lots of restaurants and shopping. Wi-Fi worked great!
The monthly section needs to be cleaned up. Some of the sites are quite trashy. Lots of tarps. Many owners allow their dogs to stay outside and bark and try to chase people that walk by. The rules just need to be enforced and the park would be so much better.
Rate reflects daily rate for a monthly rental. - Aspire45
Mar 2016 - $20.00
We stayed at the Dallas/Arlington KOA for four months while we were looking for a new house.
The campground is in a flood plain but despite record rainfall, the water in the nearby creek never reached the campground.
The campground overall and the restrooms and showers in particular were always clean.
The pool was very nice.
They had a nice pancake breakfast benefiting the KOA Kids charity on Sunday during the summer.
They placed the long-term campers towards the back of the campground.
All the long-term campers were very friendly and always greeted us when we drove or walked by.
The campground was very quiet; we never experienced any problem with noise.
The playground was nice but pretty basic and perhaps a little "old fashion."
They have two dog parks, one for smaller dogs and the other for larger dogs.
While we don't have a dog we did hear a neighbor complain that some of the campers were not cleaning up after their dogs.
This same neighbor told us that when they complained to the owner he wasn't receptive to their concerns.
They were having trouble with the Wi-Fi while we were there.
There were several days when it wasn't working at all.
We used it mostly for email and reading the electronic copy of the newspaper.
When it was working it wasn't super fast.
After some frustration we began using our own wireless "Mifi" for the newspaper.
Rate reflects monthly rate of $560 plus electricity. - KCTexas

This is a very average to slightly below average park. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder of course - but there is no beauty here for me. I was surprised at how cramped it is based on previous reviews. My pull-through was long enough but I couldn't reach the sewer connection and have my truck hooked at the same time - so I had to bring out the extension. My living room roadside slide was hanging over my neighbors outside living area and his huge grill/smoker was right in front of my electrical/water access and I could barely open the door. All hookups are close to the living space of the neighboring site - and I mean close. There are dogs chained outside the rigs all up and down the row I was parked on so taking my dogs out raised a ruckus and many owners stayed inside and let their dogs lunge and howl. The small fence posts that are rebarred into the ground on the perimeter of my site are pulled out and buckled - creating a nightmare for pulling into and out of the site without puncturing a tire. After I got in and checked my truck I saw that the right rear tire was about 2" from 2 large, sharp screws sticking out of the posts which were meant to hold two of the posts together. Lots of longer term people with junk around their rigs. Barking dogs. Tight spaces. Not a very nice place. I would never come back if in the area. - kdlee747

Bathrooms were unclean every day. Lots are very close. No place for dogs to potty. Redeeming qualities, Most people cleaned up after their dog. The flea market was close and free to get into. Park ok, would stay again. Would be nice if they would clean the bathrooms - larpen175
Jan 2016 - $35.00
Associated with the adjacent weekend flea market, this campground seems to attract those who like that sort of thing. The facilities are good, but the price is high, even with the multi-day discount. The residents seemed very aloof to us, and the staff were just there. Most site are quite shaded, so don't count on a satellite connection. The laundry was large and among the most inexpensive we have encountered in 12 years of full-timing. We used this place as a spot to park our rig while we flew out of DFW airport. The cost was very high for what was basically storage. We won't stay here again. - wandrr
Aug 2015 - $45.00
Very average park, not my first choice but was all that was available. Very crowded on weekends with a lot of in and out traffic to the flea market area so getting out and about wasn't fun. Close sites, on asphalt and mostly open. - Texgirlrvjunkie

Considering the obvious impression that 90% of the RVs here appear to be permanent, this is actually a pleasant little diversion if you just want to get away for a couple of days and don't want to drive for hours to do it. It's a nice park, well-maintained, tucked away in a residential neighbor hood, though you'd never know it once there. We just dropped in and they accommodated us without any notice, assigning us a pull-through site with full hook-ups. While I generally avoid parks with an excess of permanent residents, we felt a sense of community pride as the sites were groomed, many with flowers. The park is not set-up in the all-too-common parking lot arrangement, instead having winding paths and a more organic arrangement, making for a more leisurely evening stroll. Best of all, the staff is a hoot and enormously helpful, which always make one wanting to come back for more. - ajmurray
Mar 2016 - $21.00
Very friendly people. Had no trouble at check in. In fact, when I said I was retired military, they recalculated the rates to give a discount better than Good Sam's. After check in, I was escorted to my spot and help backing in was given. Spot was gravel, slight uphill to spot, but spot was level. Trees have not grown full canopy of leaves, but will provide great shade when they do. Hookup for cable TV did not work, but antenna reception is great. Be sure you have long power cords, water hose, and sewer hose as some can be 20 feet away. We will stay again. - Widecreek
Mar 2016 - $19.00
We've wintered over here for a few years now. Rate reflects a monthly rate of about $565+elec. This year, they repaved the major avenues fixing most of the potholes. But otherwise, I don't see much change. The park is overrun with long term campers, some of which have been in place for literally years. The north end is more roomy & level, but almost all of those sites are permanent. The manager told me they are going back to a trailer park format with some sites for RVs. I'd say they are already there with RVs that never move. If you can get in and get a site you like, then this is a fine RV park. Their reservation system is pretty messed up. They mostly find you a spot when you show up because they have little idea of when sites will open. And be prepared to wash often as bird poop can cover your rig in a flash. Avoid driving on Arbrook between the campground and Bowen Road due to narrow lanes & tree branches. - Danno

The only good thing about this park was a place to stay while visiting my daughter and grandchildren. Take your own toilet paper as none is ever in the restrooms and do not know if or when they are cleaned, the showers are just big enough to turn around in barely. People take their dogs into the bathrooms and some are not on leash . This is the only park close to where I needed to be that had any sites or I would not have stayed here. - possumtrotky
May 2013 - $20.00
Rate reflected two-week stay. This is the ONLY RV park in Plano, or we probably would have gone somewhere else. We were here to visit our son, so not much choice (other campers said the same thing). It is a pretty run-down camper / mobilehome park right along a frontage road next to the very busy freeway. People around you are nice and pretty much keep to themselves, but the place gives you second thoughts about staying there. We did stay the two weeks, and had no problems at all, so it wasn't as bad as it "looked". - MarieB

Stayed here for a few days while visiting someone in Richardson. Close to were we wanted to be. Nice shade (temp over 100 when we were there) somewhat level sites. Lots of permanent people there. Place was clean and staff was friendly. Would stay there again when in the area. - Mitchelmal

The park is 90% permanent residents. Hard to believe we found this in the Passport America listing. The contact was friendly and helped us find the place. It's way off the beaten path. We did get good electricity. Our pull through was next to a street construction project. A notch above "trailer trash". We got a place to park and the price paid may have been a little high. I looked at the web site and it sounded OK, but what a surprise when we arrived. I would not stay here again. - john rv
Jun 2009 - $15.00
We had three coaches and arrived together.The park is 90% permanent residents and all are in disarray. Passport threw us a curve ball on this one. I cannot believe they would give this place a listing. To be frank, it was one step above "Deliverance" in its appearance. We gave it a two only because a good clean up might help. I like their dogs running loose when we are asked to put ours on a leash. - mh32750
Apr 2008 - $12.00
Rate is monthly rate of $360, which includes $100 electric. We've stayed here several times. The owners/managers are good to work with. One draw-back here is hookups located far at rear of back-in sites requiring sewer extensions (which they will provide if you don't have enough). A real irritant to us are all the owner dogs that roam the area. They are not normally aggressive toward people or pets. Guests are told they have to pick up behind their pets, but the owner dogs run loose and often leave their "marks" behind in your yard. Primarily for that reason, we have decided to try another location next time we visit the area. - AFChap

If you like to stay between a custom home construction site and a place that sells a lot of pavers, plus have the ambiance of a very busy freeway with limited lake view, then stay here. Not only is the location bad, but the staff isn't friendly either. Nothing like having an old crotchety drunk who thinks he's a security almost run head on into your car to harass you because you were going 15 mph through the park. - MoreSmarterTexas

We admit that park personnel at this RV park were friendly and helpful initially, but when we ran into a verified high voltage problem with the park the manager would not admit that there was an issue that needed to be addressed. We have an electrical management system in our motorhome which shuts down power to the rig at above 132 volts, and which did so several times. Using the Lakeview RV park's voltmeter with the manager present, as well as my own, we confirmed about 280 volts in the pedestal wiring which supplies power to the 50 amp outlet, and 140 volts in the wiring supplying power to the 30 amp outlet. All of the expert opinion that I can find, and it was substantial, indicates that these pedestals are out of those power company specs which I am told should be 120V +/- 10% or +/- 12 volts. Those specififications using this formula would permit a maximum of 132 Volts allowable, and voltage at 140 volts is substantially above this level. Since the park manager admitted to me that they had checked three additional pedestals and found the same voltage at all, they assumed that there was no problem. I talked to three licensed electricians, as well as to other experts in the field, receiving eight total opinions that this situation is a serious problem. I believe that the real problem with this situation, however, is that park management would not believe that this is a problem. They told me, with witnesses present, that they have been having substantial electrical problems. However, all they could say was that the only time that they had ever seen this particular problem was with large motorhomes. There are a large percentage of trailers and fifth wheels in this park, and I believe that none of them has the capability to detect electrical problems to the extent that many large motorhomes do. I believe that this situation and this park management attitude will only change when one of these units has a fire or perhaps burns to the ground. I believe that the excessive voltage present could burn up light bulbs, TV sets, refrigerators and other sensitive electrical units and could cause other electrical problems. We had paid for a week's stay but left three days early, and of course they would not refund our money. Their only comment was that since I believed that the voltage was too high, that we should leave the park, which is what we did. This is not the kind of RV park that I ever wish to visit again. - jmorgan54

Very friendly and helpful staff. Sites are mostly filled with long term tenants. They keep 3 open for travelers if full. Just off of 820 SB so good for traveling through. No showers or washrooms for your use. Laundromat available for your use. Sites are level. - murph164

Rate reflects Escapees Club discount. Perfect location for visiting downtown Fort Worth - world-class museums and great restaurants all within walking distance. Park is old but well-maintained. Sites are very tight, but acceptable. Hostess was very friendly and helpful. Great WiFi. If you don't like urban environments, don't stay here. But if you want experience downtown Fort Worth, the park's deficiencies are offset by its location. We stayed here four nights and would stay again. - Mingo Papa

This is the most difficult park I've ever had to navigate and I've been doing this for 20 years. And I only have a 36-foot motorhome. That said, it's the most convenient location in the "middle of the action" in Fort Worth. The electric pedestal I had was one of those just a few inches off the ground and it was so loose it kept letting my plug fall out. The pads are barely wide enough to extend slides. The other thing that makes this place special is the owner and the park host. They are top-notch folks who really want to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. - Midlander

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

At first we had site 46 which is a pull through and was a really nice "level site" but when attempting to level the motor home each time the back wheels were off the ground by 6". So we were able to move to site 51. We always enjoy this park and find it to be very clean. The staff are helpful. The park is very quiet. Just check out the sites if you need a level one for bigger rigs (33' and longer) - Stujan

The staff I dealt with was friendly and helpful and even loaned me a 50-to-30 amp adapter since I didn't have one. The gravel site was relatively level. I did have a couple of issues with the the park. First, the restroom/shower (singular on purpose) was pretty awful as was the laundry room. I definitely would not use either. Second, the visual appeal of the park is very much lacking. It is not a pretty place. Third, not a great place for kids. There is nothing for them to do and really no place to walk or run around without driving somewhere. Overall I felt the park was priced comparably to some much nicer parks within 25 miles. - JPen365

We were delighted with this nice little RV park! It was neat as a pin, had great amenities, a nice pool, large laundry room, & a nice community room-all with a western theme. The spaces are decently far apart with nice trees, all very long and level-great for big rigs! The highlight was the small alpaca herd that we got to hand feed during their daily evening feeding. The owners are super nice and even offer some fun homeschool-enrichment classes for any interested kids in the park, (one afternoon each week). There are some long term residents but their rigs and spaces were just as neat and tidy as all the others! It's only a mile off I-35 but in a beautiful, quiet country setting. We would definitely stay here again if looking for something about an hour north of Ft. Worth. Very reasonable rates for full hook-up/50amp. Price reflects a Good Sam discount. - Jeni

Gated, clean park; however, not for long term stays. Management is too concerned about running and controlling people and not managing the park. Women, beware. Manager does not interact very well with women, but does make a point to be overly friendly with gentlemen. My husband was uncomfortable and felt she got in his "bubble" a few too many times. We were planning on staying for up to a year or longer, but did not feel like we could handle all the gossip and "Peyton Place" behavior. You could never see or talk to the owner, management made sure of that. The RVs are very close together, and you could hear RV doors slaming open and shut at all hours. Very annoying. Boat dock very small and crowded. It was hard to relax, wondering what the manager would confront you about at any given time about the most trivial things. We saw her confront many of the residents about things that didn't concern her, and it caused a lot of strife and discomfort. It was told to every resident, your "sh#!t" is on wheels, you can leave at any time if you don't like the rules, etc. The water pressure is horrible most of the time. The laundry room is very nice but never hot water and they don't get the clothes very clean because of the pressure. I have been to several RV parks, and management has never been as unprofessional as I have seen here. Drinking too much, talking about other residents to residents, and allowing her employees to drink while on the job were just several things we saw during our visit. And if you do express a concern, she will only turn things around on you and find reasons to get you to just learn to say nothing. Just not a peaceful environment. - RVlivinfam

This park was nice, but the management is more concerned with controlling campers than running the park. Lots are extremely close together to the point you can hear others in their RVs if you are outside your rig. Entire park is nothing but gravel roads, sites, etc. Extremely dusty and God forbid it rains then it becomes a severe mud hole. Sites are all on an incline and it makes it very hard to level your RV. There is an extreme problem with dog poo not being picked up and the SNAKE problem is not good. There are lots of water snakes and copper heads around the common building, you have to be aware of this when you go down near the water area. Boat ramp is small and not much room to back into it. Issues are a big concern with water pressure; most times it's so low it makes taking a shower very difficult. Water lines break a lot which in turn causes water to be turned off to RVs for long periods of time without warning. Would not recommend this park due to its many issues. - too good
Oct 2007 - $15.00
The Boat ramp makes the stay worth the hassle. The owner has very little to do with the park and the management has changed hands since our stay. The park is good for an overnight stay or even a weekend stay however long term stays beware. Nicely put, the management is too involved in everyones lives and they leave little room for a quiet private stay. There is no swimming allowed from the boat ramps and they charge to store your boat. - kap7893

Dusty, not very well kept campground, located behind a storage facility. The web-site shows a country-side setting, and there are cattle behind the campground.

Use website directions to get into park. The park is located off access roads behind a RV dealership. Entrance roads are wide and concrete, as are most of the roads in park. The sites are concrete pads, however they are narrow and no patio. We were there after rain, and the ground was muddy. The front office was closed when we arrived during business hours, and we had to wait 30 minutes for someone to check us in. - KKColorado

We stayed in one of the long concrete pull thru sites. The concrete roads are a little narrow as are the concrete sites as far as making a good swing into the site. The drivers side rear tires and toad tires were a mess after being off the concrete pad. After looking around at other sites, this seems to be a common occurrence, many sites were rutted up. There was standing water visible in various places as well. That being said we would still stop here if passing through. It's very accessible from the interstate. We camped here in a 42' MH. - User3025

I might only endorse the glowing reports already noted, but must say the additional fee (although clearly stated) is somewhat deceiving when looking at the actual cost, making the park a fair value. My only addition is that it is centrally located in the DFW megalopolis - very close to none of the attractions but not very far from any of them either. I got to almost everything in 20-30 minutes or less. - retiredfflarry

Beautiful city park. Huge sites with water and electric, farily level, a covered picnic table area and fire ring. We were the only campers in G loop during the week, by Saturday all sites were full. Some sites are open and in full sun, some sites are wooded, all are spacious. - Jeannehanes

This county park on Joe Pool Lake is quite large with many camping loops. The sites are fairly large with plenty of trees providing privacy between neighbors, and each site has a covered picnic area and fire ring. The interior roads were in good condition, but being heavily wooded it can be a little tricky driving a big rig through without scraping against tree branches. Our site was not level but with our wood blocks we were able to get completely leveled. There are plenty of heated bath/shower houses for each loop. It's less than five miles to supermarkets, restaurants, etc. Unfortunately during our stay (December 2015) much of the campground was under water due to flooding of the lake, so the beach and other amenities were closed and the campground was mostly vacant despite being a holiday weekend. AT&T and Verizon both worked well, and we received plenty of over-the-air TV channels. As others have mentioned, there is a $10 per day vehicle fee in addition to the $23 camping fee. We'd return here, but only after the flooding has receded and the damage it caused has been repaired. - LifeRebooted

We couldn't get in to the Eagle Ford loop which I heard was re paved. That loop was closed because of all the rain and flooding they had around Dallas this year. The loop we did get in, Lakeview Camping Area, was pretty well beat up. The asphalt road is falling apart as well as the campsites. The campsites are not very level and for longer rigs you have to make sure you get a site deep enough because most of the sites are pretty short. The bathrooms and shower area were not clean and need to be remodeled. This campground looks like it has been here many years and well used. It is very convient to visit Dallas and shopping close by in Cedar Hill, TX. Verizon cell phone and wifi worked good. - jhav

This is an adequate park. Nothing great, nothing terrible. It is "well-worn" with roads that are quite bumpy and sites that have a lot of slope front to back. Bathrooms were dated but fairly clean. Pay attention to the park map: for sites closer to FM1382, you can definitely hear the constant road noise. It's not awful, but it is constantly there. We had good cell service but no wifi; many, many channels by OTA antenna.
Cedar Hill shopping, restaurants, etc. are 10 mins away. Arlington is 15-20 mins away. - texasAUtiger

A real hidden gem in this area. The lake is up and there is a lot of activity on the lake, there are two major sights on the lake and Johnson Branch is on the north side and has about a 10th of the traffic as the south side. The JB has about 100 sites and I think about 11 are 50 amp all of those are drive thru. The best sites are all 30 amps and back in but since it was in the 90’s we parked in one of the 50 amp pull thru sites to stay cool. Rangers were personable and friendly especially since it was our first time to camp here, we went ahead and bought an annual park pass and paid $26 a night. All of the sites have water and electric and a sewer dump is close to the entrance. About the only negative is w/o the pass it is an additional $7.00 per day per person so the cost gets too high. Gates are locked from 10PM to 6AM but they give you a code so we felt very secure and during the day it was quiet and after dark it was completely quiet. We will be back again and again. - DKRITTER

The campground is very nice. Large paved sites. Our site was Lakeside, except there was no water in the lake at this part of the park. Water is very low and appeared it had been so for a long time with grass and bushes growing where water once was in one end of the lake. The Texas Parks pass is a good deal if using Texas Parks frequently, but as a visitor, I thought the $7.00 per person, per day entry fee was too high. We've stayed at other Texas Parks for $2 or $3. - Destinations

This was a good overnight stop. It is near Roy Roberts Lake, though, so I suppose it has some possibilities for water activities. There were quite a few construction workers staying here. The sign to the park is missing, so we entered the 2nd entrance by mistake. So we had to back in to our pull through site. No big deal as there was room, but could be better marked for the entrance. Plenty of room to walk the dog. We never saw the owner but she had given us our site number ahead of time when we called for a reservation. GREAT Verizon cell service here and my air card was extremely fast. Gravel sites are level with concrete small patio and table. Nothing fancy but okay amenities for an overnight. We'd stay again if traveling through this area. - Danni

Very nice, well maintained older RV Park. It is a combination of long term and short term RV sites and rental cabins. RV sites are all back in, but plenty of room to maneuver unless you choose a site with a covered metal awning. Even then, they are doable even with a Class A or large 5th wheel. I choose a site under the trees and had good shade most of the day. Water pressure is good, and electric was reliable. The utility poles are toward the front of the sites. OK for me for the water and sewer, but I needed to use my 30A extension cord to reach the electric. The manager told me that there were some long term residents, but you can't pick them out by looking at their sites. He won't let them make it look like a trailer park. The park is quiet and out in the country. The town of Springtown is about 5 miles away and has a Brookshier supermarket, several good restaurants and cafes, and diesel and gas are available. Nine miles in the opposite direction is the larger town of Azle, with a Wal-Mart and more shopping and restaurants. I was visiting friends in the area and this was a great location for me. Satellite worked well and over the air channels were clear with a strong signal. The park has Wi-Fi, but I didn't use it. Verizon Mi-Fi worked well all day with no signal loss and cell phone signal was strong. The rate shown is based on the weekly rate of $135. The daily rate is $30. I would recommend this campground to anyone visiting the area or just passing through. - BigDadDogg

DO NOT STAY AT THIS PARK! The bath house is disgusting and riddled with spiders and bugs. The hot water is NEVER on so when you do try to take a a shower: the water is cold. There is no laundry facility: the closest one is in Wylie and that laundry mat is disgusting. There is no mail service, so if you stay long term you must buy a PO box in Wylie. There is also no outgoing mail so you must drive into Wylie to simply mail out you mail. Very inconvenient. If your pipes freeze, YOU are responsible even though the water controller the parks utilize are NOT for inclement weather. I went out of town and turned off my water and their cheap pipes froze while I was gone. I returned home to a $150.00 dollar bill taped to my door. This park also over charges on electricity bills. DO NOT BE FOOLED by the ignorant office manager at the gate house, she does the meter reading and over charges on all monthly bills. Overall this park is the worst park I have lived in as a full time RV'er. You will regret wasting your time moving here, to have to move after you have realized the disgusting park and its employees. - tgerald

This campground is advertised as a resort but is far from it. The sites were so un-level you could not sit on lawn chairs outside, no picnic table, no shade and the roads were so bumpy it turned over the furniture in the RV. The restrooms were not even roadside rest quality, no door on the one and only toilet stall, dead bugs, bird droppings all over the floor and fixtures and one shower stall that had not been cleaned lately. I would not ever stay here again and would not recommend it to anyone. They charge a premium price for a sub-standard park. - rlyons

Visiting Forth Worth for a weekend and stayed three nights. Navigation around the park with our 40 foot 5er was easy. I suspect that at least 75% of the people are long term. The park was well maintained. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Some of the sites are spaced fairly well, others appeared to be very tight. We stayed in D13 and it was not too tight. Roads were good and the site was fairly level. The WiFi service was surprisingly good for as full as the park was. The latency was low and we were able to stream NetFlix with minimal amount of buffering delays. I would stay here again. - cgaskins

I don't understand some of the negative reviews. There are a few park models here but they appeared well kept. We stayed here unexpectedly while waiting for bad weather to clear. The staff was accommodating and efficient. There had been flooding in area but the park has a lot of gravel, so excess water was not an issue here. Great freeway access and situated close enough to major retail outlets to be convenient while still maintaining a "country" feel. We will definitely stay here again if overnighting in DFW. - AT hiker

We had stayed at one other RV park while in Dallas another time, and we didn't care for the CG or the location. Unfortunately, there are hardly any to choose from inside Dallas! This one was OK, better than the other one for us. Less traffic, a little more removed from the chaos of the city while still being close enough to access whatever you need. Pretty surroundings - grass fields, pretty plantation home in front, nice neighborhoods. But for the most part, the CG itself is nothing special. Esp. considering the price. Based on our travels, I would expect those sorts of accommodations to warrant maybe $25 - 30/nt. But I guess it's because it's the only real game in town...! The owner was very nice about letting me have mail send and she then delivered it to our site when I called. And they have a nice (air-conditioned!!!) laundry room. I have to warn about a few things though - I got more mosquito bites there in 2 days than I've had in the last 4 months of traveling!! It did help when I started walking our dogs along the dirt exit road instead of in the grassy field (where we were supposed to) - less mosquitoes, at least in the AMs. Also, advanced reservations are apparently required so don't just show up and hope - call ahead! Most campers seem to be living here, so they probably don't have many sites available for transients. And there's no one really on site, in an office. You need to call. You also need to be self-contained, as I don't think they have bathrooms/showers. And lastly...I will reiterate what one other reviewer mentioned: do NOT approach the CG from the west on Barnes Bridge Rd!!!!! On this side, there's a 15,000 lb-limit bridge, bad road, and low tree branches!! From the east, it's mostly fine (except some branches on exit). We would stay here again if we had to be in Dallas, but we would prefer to just not be in Dallas! - CarrieBearie

Texas Star Resort? Really, this is basically a parking lot next to a locked building with concrete slabs and hookups. As was said previously, junk is all over. Only reason we stayed was that we needed a place close to McKinney for relatives. I'm going to a different park next time. If you go there, beware; there's no sign out front and not much help from the owner. Where are the facilities someone (maybe the owner) talked about in a previous post? - magic

We lived four miles from this park before going full-time. Always stop here for our doctor visits, and to see kids/ grandkids.
Very spacious, on flat area which doesn't drain well after heavy rains. Be careful - many sites are depressed and flood. Won't damage your rig, but you will get your feet wet.
After spring 2015 floods, day use area is closed.
As one of the four highest priced COE parks in Texas, falls short on my value scale. Previous project to rebuild restrooms and add sewer hookups - which was stopped several years ago - might be restarted in 2016 according to park hosts, local COE office. I'll wait and see.
As mentioned above - park roads are horrible and getting worse. COE had millions of dollars of flood damage in Texas in 2015. I don't see how they will get to projects like fixing huge pot-holes soon.
Road from TX-78 to park is also getting worse. Collin County and City of Wylie each have short stretches of the road and neither is planning to fix their part. Heavy truck traffic for nearby water plant and KSC RR facility doing more damage daily. - PawPaw

The sites at this campground are wonderfully spacious and adequately level. Check in was easy and the employees very nice. The bathrooms must be the original ones making them dark, dank, smelly, and virtually unusable. Since this is a w/e only park, being able to use the restroom would be a plus. One of the major problems with this park is the road. There has been no repairs completed in a long time. It is very much like trying to drive through a mine field but you cannot be successful in missing the incredibly large holes. These do no even qualify as potholes they are so large. The other problem is people living here. While there is a limit to the number of nights one can stay, all you have to do is extend. These sites are trashy, with debris spilling out all around the rig. There is a gate, but it is left open at night for people to simply drive in. Could be a beautiful park, and it is close to Dallas. You would think a government owned park would be better maintained. - work no more

We were in site 26. This is a very quiet campground and very relaxing. Was very convenient sightseeing in the Dallas area and close to South Fork Ranch (Dallas tv show fame).shopping is close by as well as numerous eateries.
the campground hosts were very friendly and from what we heard, the campground will be getting new restrooms and shower houses as well as new paved roads soon.
We really enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. - Kentucky_Rambler

Didn't use restrooms or other facilities and $40.00 to park trailer? Muddy spot and we departed the next AM.
I think the man and woman that checked us in were the owners and they were very friendly and helpful. My biggest complaint is the $40.00 cost to park in the mud and the construction that made it a bit awkward to find the campground. We won't be back. - papacivick

Decent little park it is just too bad about all the construction on US 75 here. Makes it hard to get in and out of the park.
Sites are decent, pretty level, lots of pine trees in park making it difficult for satellite users. Has free wi-fi if you can get it to work. - hound4

This is actually a very nice park. The sites are ample & wide enough. The laundry room has 5 new washers and dryers which were in perfect condition. We were greeted with enthusiasm. I had to have a package FedEx'd to me while staying there & the young man at the office made sure I was notified that it arrived. We would stay here again. - Weapair

This was the best park we found to stay in that was close to Allen and Plano. Nice long and wide gravel spaces to park RV and two vehicles. Good gravel roads, good WiFi, friendly Staff. Lafon's has three parks in the area, We stayed at the one about a half mile south of the office. - JCB007

This is a nice park, the office help is very friendly. It does, however have some drawbacks. The office is not close to the park they put us in, so since we had to unhook at the office, we were unable to look at the park before going to it. The roads were covered with recently installed larger than normal crushed rock, if you have weak ankles or bad feet, it is hard to walk. Had we known this ahead of time we would not have stayed. Laundry facility has 3 washer & 3 dryers, they are in a cargo trailer & had it not been for a neighbor we would not have known that was where the facility was. There was a storm shelter. We would not stay there again. - Weapair

We have been stopping here 2-3 times a year at the main park or their Bratonia park about a mile away, for the last six years. Up until this year, they did not accept reservations. Starting this year, I was told when we arrived, they will take reservations. I advise you to get one. Every year the parks have seemed to be fuller and fuller regardless of the time of year. We were unable to get a site at any of their 3 parks for Christmas week. More and more they are accepting long term/permanent campers. The main park is now over 95% long term/permanent sites (according to the management). I know the small park behind the office is all long term and suspect the Bratonia park has about the same percentage long term as the main park. We like to stay at LaFon's, but will be camping elsewhere when we return to the area in March. FYI you must be self contained, they have no shower houses, or laundry facilities in any of the parks. - mrs43

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

I personally would not recommend this park to anybody. While there isn't too many in the area to choose from, do so. We stayed here one night while passing through DFW area, and will not stay here again. The sites need a lot of cleaning and work. The vast majority of the sites are long termers, and some very long term. The neighborhood did not make us comfortable and locals were milling around the park. The staff seemed friendly enough but easy to tell where their allegiance lies (with long termers). It seemed we were more of an inconvenience than a customer. - 7 on the road

This park is about 10-15 miles from I-35W, then a dusty gravel road to get to park. A lot of full timers live there. Unlevel sites. At dark a loud band from a bar thru the trees started & played thru the night. Dogs barking all night. WiFi not good. Not a great place to stay even one night. We would Not stay here again! - Knay

We stayed here while shopping for a new motorhome at MHSRV also. It's only about 10 minutes away, so if you're shopping it's conveniently located. They have pull through and back in sites. The pull through sites being large enough to accommodate a 40' 5th wheel and long bed truck. The site we were in didn't have much grassy area, and the site itself was mostly Texas clay dirt. It had rained before we got there, so there was quite a bit of mud at our site. A little gravel would help keep the mud out of our RV. The "grassy" area next to our rig was mostly weeds, and more mud. But for a couple of nights it wasn't a bad option. The Wi-Fi worked really well, the people were nice and we didn't have a problem getting our satellite up and running. There are some trees here, but not a lot. There aren't many dining options in Alvarado, we went to Benny Joe's and it wasn't bad. Mansfield has a grocery store and more restaurant options. - Gogirl

GPS Co-ordinates are: N33 4.94', W96 29.74' as Country View Trail is too new to be listed. Half mile of rock road to park entry. Interior roads are rock also. New park and nice owners. Small, clean laundry, private lake for fishing (catch and release) and short distance from Lake Lavon for swimming, boating and other fishing. Good, free WiFi, nice size spaces with a few smaller shade trees and grass. Park is still being developed with a picnic pavilion nearly complete. Each site has individual mailbox with it's own address. If you are in the area it is a good, very quiet choice. - PDDeen

This is the best park on lake Lavon for camping. The shade trees are wonderful. A few of the sites do have 50 amp service. The sites on the lake side don't have shade. Gate attendants are very friendly and helpful. We have now added this to our favorites list - cruzin2some

Looked like sewer hookups were just added. Few trees on lake side. Biggest problem was fire ants were everywhere. There were 2 nests near our picnic area. Accidentally stepped on other nests twice and was attacked heavily the second time. Being from Indiana, I was not aware of this problem. Should be posted. I would not let my kids (or pets) play in grass area. Other than that, the view was great and the staff was wonderful. - stoneycreekva

We stayed at Cowtown because there was no other place that could accommodate us for the length of time we wanted to be in the area. I found the staff to be curt and unhelpful. My wife got scolded for using change to buy ice on one occasion. The cable stopped working (wasn't good to start with: fuzzy, bad sound). When I told the manager he came down checked it with some kind of gadget and said "I guess it's not working". Really? It never got repaired, several of our neighbors lost it at the same time and never got it back either. When I asked at the office I was told they didn't know what was wrong with it and they would get to it eventually.
The sites are very tight and the cement pad, like most of the pads in the park, was broken up and very unlevel.
During our 2 week stay I don't think the restrooms/showers were thoroughly cleaned a single time. Their idea of cleaning is flushing the toilet and adding more toilet paper.
The road noise from I-20 is excessive even in the middle of the night.
The interior roads are atrocious. There are ruts and washes that make it really tough to navigate with or without a trailer in tow. The wooden picnic table was very warped with peeling paint. The one time I tried to use it the ants came out in force within minutes.
The park is filled with mostly full-time residents, many of whose sites are quite unkempt.
The best thing I can say about this place is it works in a pinch when all other options are unavailable. - JWFlyFisher

This is mostly a residential park, with some travelers like us. Staff was pleasant and escorted us to the site. The sites are tight, and the night we stayed was after some heavy rain. Our concrete pad was wet and the as soon as I stepped off the pad I was in mud. Called it "satisfactory, since they can't control the weather. Not a joy to hook up in, but it was just for the night. The park is right on the parallel access road along I-20 which is nice is you want accessibility, but the traffic noise is constant. We were toward the rear of the park, so it didn't keep us awake. We didn't use the cable, and didn't venture out into the mud (and it was after dark) so can't rate any of the grounds or facilities. - Menno

Upon arrival, very friendly and helpful gate attendants said site 78 (our reservations) was unlevel and he would recommend we change to 73 which was level. This is a beautiful, quiet, relaxing park with spacious water and electric sites that needs updating. It is big rig friendly but most sites are unlevel and not as described on map. 90 over the air antenna TV channels, good satellite and phone reception. There is no gate code so after 10pm you must walk to site. Will definitely return. - RJourney
Feb 2016 - $28.00
Nice park. Very little shade. The sites are uneven and would be hard for larger campers. Our water didn't work at our site. The maintenance guys tried to fix it unsuccessfully. They said it had been out for 2 days but the main gate didn't tell us that or move us when we checked in, despite the fact that plenty of sites were open. That could have been handled better. But the park is pretty and quiet. The sites are large. And there is hiking in the park. - Two_Huschels
May 2015 - $14.00
Our rate was with the Federal Senior Agency Pass. The park was not full at all and it would seem a good idea to come in and pick your site rather than reserve one as the map on-line does not properly represent the distance between sites, from sites to the lake and from sites to the restrooms, and many sites are not at all level. The restrooms here are sorely in need of upgrade as they are too old and one ladies room actually without a door, which results in major bug issues. The sites and interior roads are paved but also need refinishing. The water & electric hookups were good. There is plenty of shade and a nice amount of space between sites. Each site has a covered picnic table on a concrete slab. Gate personnel were very friendly and helpful. - R&S

A beautiful little Corps of Engineers park. Lot's of trees and grass, asphalt pads and roads in fair to good condition, steel fire rings, covered picnic tables on concrete slabs, HUGE camping spaces, many lakefront spots. Dump station near entrance. If you have your own bathroom and shower, I'd give it a 10. If you don't, probably a 6. The vault toilet on our end of the park is old, smelly, and not especially clean. No showers on this end. However, there is a modern shower and toilet facility under construction and looks like it could be available any day now. - Sonic

This park was so clean & quite. Tons of space between sites, and I do mean tons. The Park Hosts were very friendly and knew a lot about the area. The lake level was low, as are most lakes in North Texas right now. Beautiful oak trees throughout the park. This is truly a place to relax, take a walk, or just do nothing. Great park for a vacation or just a weekend home away from home. - Chayes

This is a bare bones, no frills campground but it is well maintained and convenient if you are in the area. At the present time there are a lot of pipeline workers staying here while construction is going on in the area. Not a lot of trees for shade but most of the individual sites are covered with metal "carport" type covers, to include the concrete patios. No problem for any size RV fitting under the awnings and there is still plenty of room for slide outs. The office is in the first camper on the left when you enter the campground and does not accept credit cards...cash or check only. I will stay here again when I'm visiting friends in the area. - BigDadDogg
May 2007 - $25.00
This is a new park. There are 12 sites that are covered and have covered patios. Great for hot Texas sun and hail storms! We were told that they are going to build covers on more sites. Gravel roads and sites. Nothing fancy, but clean and convenient if you need to be in the area. Free WiFi at the sites. - TexasRee
Apr 2016 - $39.00
Entering into park I was very concerned from the appearance. The roads are asphalt, patched with asphalt, and the patches were patched. The office staff was very nice. Our site #93 was very close to neighbors and not very level at all. The cable TV did not work well at all and, as seems to be common at most parks, the WiFi was slow. The Verizon data connection was strong and much faster.
We were visiting local friends and, due to the campground appearance, were too embarrassed to invite them over to see our brand new travel trailer.
I think there are probably better parks to stay at nearby so we probably will not stay here again. - Tewickh
Dec 2015 - $30.00
We have stayed here a couple of times and have found this to be a nice campground run by very nice folks. We would recommend this campground as a short or long term stay. The sites have excellent facilities with water, electricity and sewer. Easy access to I-35 and I-20. Bad is if one has to come from the north the highway construction is awful. Be sure and take your time if you are coming from that way. - Fordiesel250

This park is located along I-35W just outside of Fort Worth. So a good location for accessing entertainment/dining/etc in the Metroplex. You can hear the truck traffic from the Interstate, but it really didn't bother us much. Roads in the park are gravel and have some washouts. Pad was asphalt and not completely level. There is a mix of premanufactured homes and travel trailers in the park. There is mix of long-term/permanent and through-stay in the park as well. Full hook-ups, pull-through sites with cable. One highlight, there are sewer connections at both the rear of the site and middle for those coaches with mid-rig drains. Can't say enough about the friendliness of the staff. Very welcoming and really took care to see that we were setup and happy. Not a resort park, there is one of those furry animal places across the highway for those wanting more amenities and having deeper pockets. We were attending a workshop in Venus, TX and this was a great place for us to lay our heads each evening. We would stay here again. - ACope

Ok. We stay here while waiting to get the motorhome repaired from the hail damages. Staying longer was not in our plans, with that being said the road noise from I 35 is noticeable, the sites need more gravel, and the roads need to be repaired from the utilities that they have dug for the cabin being put in. The WiFii is slow as a snail and drops you a lot. The cable is terrible, they say they have 20 channels - Not! We had to put us on antenna to get CBS,NBC and ABC. Went to the office and complain they sent a teenager to the site and he said there was nothing they could do bout it. The weekends are full of kids that run all over the place with no control from the office or their parents.
We were in one of their premium sites wasn't worth the extra expensive. I will not be back. - virginiagirl2015

We stayed here for 5 nights. The weekend cost $75.00 per night w/GS. we stayed in the old part of the park. Nice tree shade and still got Satellite reception (without HD cause of light tree interference). Internet was very poor. couldn't even get email most of the time. We would stay here again. - Danorske

Mixed feelings about this park. Great place for families with children because of the activities offered. Yes, the water park is a separate fee but at a reduced price-you can purchase for a day or $14/person for your entire stay. If you go to accompany family and NOT participate, you pay full price. And be prepared to sit in the hot sun unless you want to pay additional $35 for a covered area.
My husband and I met son and family for three nights, who were going to tent camp and reserved a space two spaces over from our site. When they arrived, they were told that the people who had their space decided to stay another night, so instead of honoring our son's reservation, Jellystone moved them to a different site far from where we were staying.
Cons: Our site, 54, was very shaded but not level; had to use about three leveling pads on one side. No grill but there was a fire ring. The cable did not work but we were able to get several channels through antenna (but cable is part of what you pay for, right?). WIFI was very weak. Some of the paved roads have potholes; the grounds looked unkempt, i.e., mowing and weed-eating, trash. There was recent flooding and the "creek" that runs through one area still had debris piled up in some spots although that may have been a "timing" issue. The Air Zone where the bouncy inflatables are located is in the full sun, two for the older kids were not inflated and they needed a good washing. The tables in the Bear's Den could be cleaned more often. And if you stay over a weekend be prepared for a LOT of noise and activity because this park is full of kids having a good time.
Pros: great family and kid-oriented park with LOTS of activities to keep the kids happy. We had fun playing candy bar bingo, watching karaoke, movie's in the evenings, swimming and a visit to the water park. Lots of shaded RV sites. - DMR2011

We stayed at Paradise RV Park while my husband was working in Bridgeport TX for 1 month. This is a small very quiet park out in the country. It is all gravel and has no shade trees. There is no bath house but there is a washer and dryer available for use. The owners are very nice and the park is clean. There are no frill or extras but I would recommend them if you are in the area and need a quiet nights sleep or work in the area and don't want any drama that comes with some parks. We will use them again if in that area. - okies

Rate reflects Senior Parks Card. I really can't say much good about this park. First, the roads are not in good shape. The sites are NOT level by any means; although, they were paved. Signs said no open fires, but there were several in the camp grounds at night. Campground host appeared to be disabled and it didn't look like he even checked on anything. Lastly, the electric. Says we were to have 30 amp. A big sticker on the electric box said we were limited to 24 amps. Since we really didn't need a lot of electricity, we thought 'OK'. Bad news was that even when I just turned on the microwave, (12 amps), the voltage went down to 90 Volts. Definitely not good for anything electrical or electronic. In the morning so that we could use the coffee maker, microwave, hair dryer, I just started the generator. Probably not supposed to, but they are supposed to provide 30 amp, 110 v electricity. I was visiting family nearby so that is why I chose this place to stay, but would NOT stay again or recommend it to anyone in anything more than a tent. - OkieDave

Pricey for the amenities offered. Site not level, no shade, bathrooms were scary; not clean and did not want to use showers. Nice enough for a corp park. Roads in good shape. Didn't like that we had to be in the gate by 10pm. Locked out with no code to open. Beautiful lake, but couldn't enjoy because of high winds while we were there. We would return for an overnight while passing through. - The Grizz

I called ahead and was told that big rigs were not a problem. But, it was a problem. To access the sites it was necessary to cross a very narrow bridge going around a curve. Very tricky! The sites are all grass. Mostly permanent folks--a couple of tenters came in while there. Would be okay for "camping" but not the type of place for a big high-end rig. - TexasRee

This park is clean, quite and a nice place to stay. The owners do a back ground check so you know the people next door to you are okay. There is a small lake on the property to fish in. Pet Friendly. Lake Lavon is also about a mile down the road for those who are into boating and fishing. It is also a hop, skip and a jump to Dallas. I have been here twice now and will come back if husband is working in the area again. - hopie

This is not a ranch. It is simply a few acres off the beaten path where someone squeezed together some electricity and water faucets. Appeared to be numerous full timers (who were super friendly). This park is not big rig friendly. It is more suitable for smaller trailers. We were told they had a pull thru so we made this park our destination for the evening. No pull thru. We had to unhook. The corners were so tight that the caretaker had to guide us around corners, parked vehicles and camper trailers. We will not stay here again. Internet was as slow as dial up. - travelingpeople

Really great owners and super location right next to Lake Lavon. The park is located off a pretty quiet road and you are within walking distance to the lake, which has boat ramps and beaches! The owners are really nice and they have horses at the back of the property! The downside is there are no big trees, it is all open. Easy to park, nice gravel. - ProRVer

This park is in a rural area, on a poorly maintained county road. When we visited there were only three sites occupied and the feel collection was self service.

This is not a destination park. If you have to visit Dallas Texas for any reason this would be a nice place to stay for a short period. Nothing fancy here but not a bad park for parking. No Bath houses or laundry. No pool but they do have some nice ponds to fish in. Not sure I would eat the fish. Pull throughs are OK but if it rains they can get muckier. Had no problem getting my 37 foot 5th wheel in the pull through site but did have some problem leveling up due to soft ground. Overall this is a nice park and the residence here are real nice. A few RVs need some repair but overall most are nice rigs. We will continue to use this park when we are in the area. - Speedy

The hook ups are satisfactory. There is a small botanical garden at the entrance. Very sweet for a lunch date. Close to shopping and fast food restaurants. My son and I stay there memorial weekend. I found the town's people warm and welcoming. It saddens me to say the management of the park was rude. His only concern was payment. The city office was closed for the holiday. A drop box isn't an option for me. He said I was there illegally, and must disconnect immediately. I say BOO to the manager and hooray to Gainsville!!!! There are no showers. I didn't use the toilets. This park is good for a night or two. The highway noises don't bother me, but are loud. - Spector

This is a small city park next to the interstate. Close to town. WiFi is available at nearby businesses. There is a public restroom which was moderately clean. No showers. There were several sites in which the water wasn't working, and some which had a constant leak. Check the water before setting up: guess how I figured that out! We did not see a manager and we were here 4 days. Payment is made in a Dropbox. We felt safe here but on our last day, our neighbor's car was stolen in broad daylight. It is unlikely that we would stay here again. There weren't many campers. - Joann26

Located about 3 miles west of I-35W(Exit 26) on the south side of US Hwy. 67. If eastbound on Hwy. 67, turn right into the park. If westbound on Hwy. 67, you must be in the left turn lane & do a U-turn to get in to the park. Hwy. 67 is a 4 lane divided highway, so there is ample room to do a U-turn. This is an older park & most sites are somewhat narrow. There are many long term residents. The park has ample power & water pressure. No cable TV, but lots of channels available with the roof antenna. Utilities are conveniently located on the sites. Most sites share a pedestal, therefore most campers are set up with doors facing each other. Wifi worked well during our stay. The staff was very friendly & helpful. While not a destination resort, this park served our purposes well, & we would return again when in this area. - c lewis

Rate reflects additional charge for 50A. Very few sites have sewer, but there are available dump stations. The sites in Section 1 are very deep, easy to park long motorhome with toad in front. The hookups are at the very back of the site, so you have to back all the way in or have a very long electric cord and/or water hose. The roads are in passable shape. The campground has a large area of common use (ball fields, pool, etc.) that we did not use, but seems to be well maintained. Lots of longterm renters of the sites, so the campground was not as "friendly" as we have come to like. - pattic777

I have tried this park twice and I am removing it from my "to stay" list.
1 - No cell service. This is hard for us because we use the Thousand Trails on our days off and need to catch up on paperwork. We might be able to let this slide if their wifi EVER worked. They say there is wifi, but it is always down.
2 - Few sites not near lodge. Few 50 amp. hook ups at far rear of site. We have an electric hot water heater, so we like to have 50 amp. We also have 6 kids, so we like to be near the playground and the lodge.
3 - Pool and hot tub are small and closed (at least in March).
4 - The construction is shoddy. A/C are window units cut into the siding. The bathroom stalls are ox board. Even the nice buildings have pieces of siding missing paint messed up.
The park is in 3 sections:
"Hollywood" - is right by the lodge and mostly 50 amp, but it has filled with long-term rentals. They look nice and clean, but are full. There was one 30 amp site available.
"Suburbs" - just around the pond from Hollywood. Very walkable distance, but not visible. Laundry and shower house in the suburbs, as well as a volleyball net. Sites are LONG, but totally grass. 50 Amp was available. But when we went to back up to the hookups, we got nervous about the weight of our rig on the grass and opted for 30 amp in Hollywood because it had gravel.
"Back 40" - best I can tell this was an old, decrepit RV park that Thousand Trails bought out. Its s about a mile from the lodge. It is full of VERY long-term campers. It looks trashy and the dump station was flooded. I think this is only staff that camps here.
The perks - The staff is friendly and accommodating. They are kind of "back woods" folk. They are not grouchy with kids. They have Candy Bingo on Fridays where almost everyone is a winner. They have a game room and cafe. The adult lodge is nice. - mmette00

We stayed at Bay Landing for 3 weeks. So far, it is our least favorite Thousand Trails park. There were very few sites with sewer and all of those were taken by long term residents or bagged as not working. Many of the sites are in a grassy field, some are heavily rutted. It got really muddy when it rained. Most of the sites were fairly large and spacious though. Most are equipped with grills and picnic tables although the tables were starting to fall apart. The facilities were covered in insects and spiderwebs and grossness when we first got there. I'm not sure what happened, but the rest of the time, the showers were spotless and had plenty of hot water. Staff was great. Playground had seen better days but that didn't stop our kids from playing on it. - D20Nomads

The park is located 2 miles south of Weatherford, the sites are large and spacious. Excellent WiFi. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed a week while touring the area the rate is the weekly rate. Would highly recommend this park if you are in the area. - JD1040

Park is off of the freeway. No road or /RR noise. Road and sites are dirt/gravel. Good water, power, and cell (AT&T). Staff was friendly. Not far from shopping, etc. We would camp here again. - kmgulf

We stayed here on 2 separate occasions in December and the rate reflects a Good Sam discount. The sites were large and spacious. The owner was very friendly. This park is off the freeway enough to be considered quiet. We would stay here again when passing through the area. - JIM & JACKIE

The owner went over and above for us. Great man. He even found us another park so we could be closer to our son for the holidays. Sites are level but a little close. Easy on and off route 20. Also take it takes Good Sam. We will go back. - Markandjo

This is more of a trailer park than an RV campground. The staff is nice enough, but we felt like we were in a scene from The Grapes of Wrath, with an entire park of unemployed oil field workers. If you're okay with that, by all means stay here. - ajmurray

This is NOT a big rig friendly. This is a very old campground that had about 80% permanents or semi-permanents there. Most sites were so close, there were less than 3 feet between slides. We have a 36ft motorhome and had a terrible time finding a site that we could fit in due to trees and low hanging limbs. We asked the office staff for tree trimmers, but they didn't know if they had any and then couldn't find any. We would not stay here again. - User1828

This was a very nice park. Pretty, well kept sites. Gravel spots, we had a pull-through and it was level. Our site had a half-circle patio and an arbor with vines that provided shade. We had a small yard and were close to the pool, very nice and clean. We stayed in the "adult" section, which I would recommend. The "family" section was mostly long term mobile homes and a bit run down with a not-so-nice pool and not as well kept grounds. Pizza place and video rental on site. A pretty lake you can fish in with a couple docks on it. Lots of washers and dryers and the laundry room and showers are cleaned daily. I would stay here again. - R-Gill513

We thought the park was nice, the space was gravel & long enough. It was not level but we compensated. The woman running it was very nice & they do have a large video store. We were there only 3 days but unfortunately it was during all that horrible weather so we spent much of the time in the RV. We would stay there again. - Weapair

Almost missed the entrance as it looks like a small strip mall and the office is at the left end as you enter. Once in the parking lot you have to back up and drive in front of the building to make a left into the park itself. The park sign is hidden behind some trees. The site we were given was 246, directly across from the swimming pool. The site was gravel and very level as well as wide enough for our slides. There was a half moon concrete patio and small grassy area and the site has a decorative fence. Not sure if we return we would want this site. By the way, it was in the adults only section which we were glad to find. Our site being across from the pool stayed wet constantly from pool run off drain. The other down side to this site is that is right in the main traffic flow and constant traffic in and out. There are a lot of permanent residents and some are friendly; others are not. One full time resident let her 2 small dogs run without a leash and then had to chase them through the park. Some traffic noise outside the park and a train now and then. For an overnight or short stop this park is okay. - SubSailor

We stayed here for a weekly rate of $85 plus electric while looking for the best location to new job. Owners/operators were very nice and friendly. Some sites are just too close to busy road and shaded sites further back were only 35 amp. There are at least 2 large pull thrus and 3 larger back ins with 50 amp. Nice clean sites. Would stay here again, but for a short stay only. - Marslo

As written in the previous review, it's not a great place to park. There are very few slots available due to electrical issues. Two slots were full of nails I noticed. I would choose to not stay again. Only good for overnight if desperate. It is easy to access near the Interstate. Most of the shops are closed in the Outlet Mall. There is a Cracker Barrel restaurant very near the shops. - ks2spi

This camp has gone to the dogs. We've been staying here on our trip south for years. It use to be a great little spot to stop, do a little shopping, eat out and continue on our way. It's just a dump now. I had to try 4 different sites in order to get one with usable electric. Maintenance seems nonexistent. Long-term Residents take up most of the usable spaces. We'll be looking for an alternative in the future. Maintenance pays dividends, why can't management get that through their heads??? - DelArmy

Okay for overnight. Rate now $20. Only three or fours still open at outlet mall although their website indicates otherwise. Appears to be mostly long term residents. Utilities worked. No showers. Easy access and fairly level. No shade trees. - BrendaFleming

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 love this park. There are no amenities, but the people are incredible. The manager is absolutely the most wonderful manager anywhere. Honest, does what he says and doesn't charge a penny more than he pays for electricity. The monthly rate is 225. And electricity is 9 cents. Only reason I didn't rate a 10 is no restrooms/laundry, but we will be going back. Very quiet park. - 2Johnsons

One of the most pleasant places I have stayed in a long time. It was about a mile and half off I-20 but easy to get to and very quite. Everything we need within three miles. We have been here two months and we love it. - User2054

Only reason we stayed here is that the park closest to the repair facility was full and the others were very expensive for a week's stay. Awful dusty road to enter my red SUV became battleship grey. Almost impossible to get someone to answer the phone. Had to put payment in a box no onsite manager. Electricity was iffy 50 amp and my AC would barley run if anything else was turned on. Don't bother with this place if at all possible. - Walking thunder

This park was convenient for us and the staff was helpful. The sites are small, no picnic tables but sufficient. It was pouring when we arrived so we sat in the street until the rain let up and we could back into a site. They re-graded the road the very next day. The laundry and bath are not real modern but very clean. The staff was in cleaning every day. They even sanitized the washers regularly. This campground has limitations, but the staff is working hard to upgrade and keep it in good condition. - streamerstoo

We stayed here as an overnight stop off I-40. Its OK for a quick stopover. No cable TV, but the 50 amp was good. Gravel entrance road and interior roads. The sites are small and only 36 paved feet long. Our 42 ft fifth wheel hung over both ends but we did get in. Nice host, but a lot of train noise. Most all guests were permanent. Probably wouldn't stay here again. Its located off hwy 80 about a mile west of town. - yachtjockey

We arrived late and only were able to stay overnight, but the park was a convenient stop right off the highway just north of Fort Worth. We could see highway traffic going by, but there were enough trees that the sight and sound didn't disturb us. We only interacted with the staff on the phone and online, but they were very helpful, giving us the code to the showers and free laundry and telling us which spots were available. The park was a little difficult to navigate as we arrived in the dark, but we found a cozy pull-through nearly alone on our row and spent a quiet night here on our journey. - Ardent Camper

Price reflects Passport America. Lot of seasonal or full-time residents, but a great surprise. What a PPA campground is expected to be like with the price. Not real fancy, but acceptable. Manager is great. Makes a nice place for an overnight stop. Campsites are not real level, but I was able to put a block on one side and level immediately. Free laundry, showers, and bath. Give it a try, we liked it. Manager said a lot of oil workers stay here, but this is off season. - Tampajohn

Park was OK for an overnight stop. Staff was helpful and easy to work with on reservations. Had to level a bit but we came in at night and couldn't see well enough. There were level pull through sites. Park was quiet and there was Diesel right around the corner. - starcraft35

This park is located off of I-20 at the next interchange west of where US 80 and I-20 merge. For one overnight stop, it's okay. What is sad here is that the campground is well designed, with level gravel pads lined by concrete walkways. Hookups are perfect. Office is nice. In otherwords, great infrastructure. The sad news is that grass is overgrown on the walkways and in the gravel, most sites are "permanent" residents, and I never saw the like of dog poo in my life. We could only walk on the roadway or overgrown sidewalks to avoid it. Yuk! Close to I-20, so road noise would be a problem if we had not used the AC. The only bathroom and shower were disgusting. Toilet probably had not been cleaned in over a week, and the shower was nearly as bad. Owner was friendly, but obviously not keeping the CG maintained. Time on the mower, string trimmer, and bathroom sponge were needed. We would not camp here again. - The Happy Traveler
