4 Parks near Glen Rose, Texas

Ok for over night stay. Gravel sites that are not level is the biggest draw-back to the park. Both front wheels of the 40' Class A motor home were off the ground by 6" in order to be level. Had to drop the wheels down to touch the ground, thus leaving us not level for the night. Staff very friendly and polite. Easy in and out. These unlevel sites were all in the 50 amp sites. The 30 amp sites appeared to be more level. Wi-Fi was free but at times slow. - Eduardo

Very convenient to Fossil Rim attraction. Dated but adequate. We used 30 amp power, but 50 amp was available at a higher rate. - Behrs

This is the most quiet campground I've ever stayed in. The weather was unusually warm for January and the campground was completely full. At 8pm both nights, I walked my dogs and could not heard a sound - no traffic noise in the distance, no noisy neighbors, no airplanes overhead - just peaceful quiet.
Plenty of maneuvering space for my 40ft 5th wheel (all sites are back in). My site was smooth and level. Several small parking lots to park your tow vehicle or toad. Sidewalks through the trees to the restroom/ shower building so you don't have to walk all the way around the loop if you prefer.
VERY clean restrooms, showers, dump station, and no litter seen anywhere.
MANY very nice walking, biking, hiking trails. I didn't visit the campground store.
Courteous and professional park employees. - 2bearbill

This is a great park. The sites are level, with good shade and large enough for big rigs. I think all the sites are back-in. Water and electric are available. There is a dump station, but no sewer at the sites themselves. My site was fairly open but other sites have very good privacy. The campground was about half full on a weekday and very quiet. The restrooms and showers were very clean. - Teardrop11

Great place to take the kids. We had so much fun in the river looking at the Dinosaur tracks. The little museum they had was great as well because it gave us some relief during the mid-day heat. Campsites were clean, and I loved how historic the place was. It was great for my kids to learn some history! - We Camp Texas

Very nice park run by city. Long level sites. Easy check in. Best value in town. - tbax46

Could be a really nice park. However, please understand. This is a family campground! Do not expect peace and quiet. Kids running through yards even after "quiet" hours. Loud beer parties while kids run unsupervised. No one picks up their dog poop. Generators ran around the clock in the dry camping area! For the most part the staff was VERY accomodating, however, there are several who have attitudes and forget who affords them this "job". No cable and TV reception is sketchy because Glen Rose is down in a hole. Lots of work being done on the park, they are working to improve it. However, that equates to lots of noise even on the weekends, so no real break from that. They do have a nice fenced area for dogs, but one of the workers uses it for their personal dog pen, so good luck finding it empty. Utilities do work well, water pressure is high. Restrooms are very clean, but could use a little sprucing up. Not sure I would stay here again. There is just not much to choose from in the area. - 2ndtimearound

Second stay at the park. First time was during a quiet time of year, and park was practically empty. Last time park was pretty full.
Actually is an old city park with large swimming pool, a pavilion, cabins, etc. Is nice and quiet. Parking spots are level, compressed gravel, and work just fine. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Looked like there were a few full timers there, so mostly used for weekend & short stays. The parking spots were fairly close to each other, but not uncomfortable. There are some trees which is nice. There is also a nice big field next to the rv park that we use to exercise the dog. Electricity, sewer & water connections were good. We will return. - Texastom

Beautiful park with many lovely stone structures in a gorgeous setting on the bluff that overlooks the merge of three rivers (Brazos, Paluxy and Squaw Creek). There is direct access to the river and fishing, boating/tubing/rafting. Miles of walking and biking trails, a swimming pool, rec hall with pool tables, TV area, kitchen and card games, and five washers and dryers ($1.25) in the laundry room. Playgrounds and a children's rec hall with activities, even in the winter. There is a beautiful dining room/ restaurant that could handle 300 plus for a private function. (Except for private functions, the restaurant is only open in the summer time.) They have large and small cabins for family reunions and weddings.
Roads are paved. Sites are level grass/dirt and were in perfect condition when we were there, but my husband prefers gravel or concrete for when it rains. Most sites are spacious, have a picnic table and at least one mature pine or pecan tree that is very tall (not a lot of ground shade.) No cable but Wi-Fi signal is strong.
This is a gated, private membership park (with some affiliation with Coast -to-Coast Resorts) that does allow some non-members when space allows. We received our invitation with our purchase of a motorhome and really enjoyed our visit. Our saleslady, Janna, was charming and efficient, gave us a wonderful tour, and answered all our questions. We did not purchase a membership because we are not full-timers and spend most of our RV time in the parts of New England and Canada where there are no member resorts. (They do have resorts in Canada and New England - just not where we have friends or relatives.) We met folks who were members and full time RVers who rotate thru the member parks, save money and schedule their favorite sites (and seasonal activities) months in advance. They mentioned they love the staff and activities at the different resorts. - Mom_of_Two

We read a lot of negative reviews about this resort but noticed that most of them were concerning membership. So we decided to give it a try since we weren't interested in that aspect. There are a lot of permanent campers here. We ended up loving our experience here and would stay again. We didn't have time to explore all of their buildings. We did use their bathrooms and showers- both were in desperate need of updating. (So old you couldn't tell if they were actually clean.) All hookups worked well at our site. We loved the quaint towns of Glen Rose and Granbury nearby. Tres Rios has great horse shoe pits & tetherball. Our favorite thing was the beautiful walking path by the river. Kind and helpful staff. And friendly campers. - Susiecamera

I received a ten day free stay at this resort when I purchased my trailer. When I tried to redeem it, I found you have to first accept a three day stay attached to a sales presentation. I was annoyed at this deception, but 13 days free is thirteen days free.
The park is nice enough, but not quite up to the standards of other coast to coast premier parks I have visited. It is a very old resort, and a little worn, but you can see they put a lot of effort into trying to make it look nice. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, except for one of the sales people. The sites are grass with little shade. They are very level, and the spaces are not super wide, but not crowded together either. It was easy to park and to drive through the park. The sewer connection at my site was partly broken off - I didn't have any trouble, but it was reflective of little things here and there throughout the park that were not quite up to par.
There is a strong wifi signal throughout the park. It's somewhat slow, but not bad for park wifi, except on the weekends when the place filled up. Then the wifi slowed to unusable. The Verizon signal was very strong.
For being as far out of Dallas as this park was, I expected it to be a little quieter. The traffic noise from Hwy 67 is relentless - not real loud, it just never goes away, and if you like to sleep with open windows, you will hear it all night.
The sales presentation was conducted by a very friendly, professional woman. But back in the office, she brought over her boss to go over the offers. He was rude, aggressive and annoying. When I tried to ask questions, he would start shouting at me. He wrote down a bunch of figures that, as I looked over them later when he wasn't shouting at me, I discovered were complete fabrications. Finally, I reviewed the contract very carefully, and he made several representations that were not reflected in the contracts. - KAP99
