21 Parks near Grand Prairie, Texas

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

Between the bird droppings and spraying tree sap, I had to clean the windows of my car every day I used it. I must clean every inch of my awnings before rolling them up or they will be stuck fast from the tree sap. The only way to avoid the problem is spots 311 or 313 -- no trees. An unpleasant stay but cannot offer a solution other than wait for winter. - D. Ramsey

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

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

Typical KOA, too much kid stuff, tight spaces, and slightly run down. I had to have them trim a tree so I could extend one of my slides. Way too many permanent residents including trash and personal belongings all over the place. There were three derelict trucks parked by the pool that should not have been there. The access is poor with only the right lane to get in or out and a somewhat steep driveway entrance. I had to use all three lanes to get out. - Dennis_K

This is a great place. Even though it is in the middle of a very commercial area, it is a lovely, quiet oasis. Paved roads, gravel sites with grass and picnic tables. There are trees by many of the sites. Half of the sites are pull through with additional parking for a car. We stayed here for two weeks and had no problems. Everything was clean and well kept up. About half of the sites looked fairly permanent, but they were also well kept. Our price included a long stay rate. - suerover

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

One of the main things that struck us about this park is how quiet it is. A high percentage of the residents here are long term. I, for one, do not mind that. The facility, sites and RV's here are all well kept. The staff and residents are very friendly. The sites are mostly wooded, so you might have trouble with a fixed satellite dish. Cable is available, as are many broadcast stations in the DFW area. The park is very near many options for dining and shopping. Our site was an unusually configured pull through, but it provided a lot of room to disconnect and park our truck next to the trailer. The park is near very many options for dining and shopping, though it is on a quiet side street. I recommend this park for a short or long term stay. - one_strange_texan

Stayed for a full week to visit family in Ft. Worth, so honestly did not spend much time at Treetops. Our site was a pull-thru and we had plenty of room for both the fifth wheel and our truck. We often returned to the park late at night, and maybe it was just us, but we had a hard time finding our site in the dark.
Staff was great, both making the reservation and upon arrival. Very quiet and safe. We would stay here again because it was convenient for our family visit. - PARTYOF2

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

Whether you're here to visit DFW area or just camp out, very nice park and good bang for the buck. Our spot was mostly level and we could get satellite signal but there would be spots you can't unless you have remote dish to move around. Good signal for phone. Local TV signal is best anywhere considering all the TV towers are within 3 miles. Maybe State of Texas Parks will consider internet in the future. Park is well maintained and we had view of Joe Pool Lake. Marina and road to Marina was closed. Heavy rains caused flooding this year. They could use more signs giving directions to sites. - LEB2

We stayed 3 nights. Sites are back ins and close. But they are cut out of trees. So little disturbances from neighbor. Spring 2016 much is closed due to flooding. Very nice facility. Many sites are short so add a couple feet to your unit for reservation. Many over the air local channels. Very nice park. - REO

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 place is an oasis within the urban DFW area. We have stayed here before and will again. Now has good WiFi, and new cable. Level, concrete pad. We have stayed here several times over the years, and the price has gone up with the rather profound improvements. It's still worth the money. This park is somewhat unique, because it's colocated with a city park, including lake, and there is lots of room and scenery. Good for walking and for walking the dog. We will stay here again. - MSTraveler

POSITIVES: Great RV parking spaces. Very good WiFi speed and strength. Good security with a gate that closes at night and has key pad accessibility. BEAUTIFUL views as this is on a lake. Quiet except for airplane traffic.
NEGATIVE: They require FULL PAYMENT when you make a reservation. This alone kept me from a 9 or 10 rating. Since we made the reservation WELL in advance, that meant we had to pay for a site WAY too far in advance. If there had been other alternatives in area, this policy alone would have kept me from staying there. This place was one of the most expensive we stayed in all year and by having to pay up front it affected our cash flow. I hope they discontinue this policy and go to a more traditional policy. I can understand a policy that charges you a nights rate in advance, but NOT one that charges for the WHOLE stay ahead of time. - hsteinle

Fortunately I live about 8 miles from this great park and take the grandkids there as much as possible, usually 2 or more times a year. Over the last 15 months or so the CG has been closed more than open due to lake flooding (lake went from 15' under full to 25' over pool in about a week and re-flooded 2x since then). Being a city park, much of the staff are volunteers and do a fantastic job. I rated the park at a 10 because of what it always has been and will be again. Parts of the park are still closed, the kids playground has been determined to be unsafe so it is closed until new sand and equipment can be brought in. I didn't rate cleanliness because the restrooms were still closed for repair. Didn't mater though as full hookup utilities work fine. Will be there again next week. Most sites are reasonably level but some are on heavy grades. The staff usually tries to keep them for 5th wheels that can tolerate it better than a MH. The rest of the sites have some slope by design... when it rains it pours! You can do anything you want from this park. It is in the middle of the City of Grapevine, but you don't really know that in the park. It is located about 1/2 way between Dallas and Ft. Worth at the north end of DFW airport. In the summer they usually have family / kid's activities on Friday & Saturday night. This can be a magic show, outdoor movie, fireside stories, marshmallow roast, etc. Understand though, these are not going to resume until the park is fully open, target date of Sept - Oct 2016. - OpaS

This "RV Resort" is nothing but a run-down parking lot. Probably 95% of the sites are occupied by people that live there year round and let their junk pile up around their rigs. The sites are basically gravel and broken up concrete and are so close together that I doubt that you will be able to put out an awning. I would only stay here again in an emergency. This place is shameful. - User3573

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

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

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

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

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

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

We stayed here mid September for 3 nights. We stay here every year when we prep our trailer for storage following our annual trip. Great laundry facility, lovely pool and nice large sites. Not to mention all the shopping and restaurants on the doorstep. We'll be back again next year. - Janet-UK

The park has plenty of pull thru sites with full hook up, including 50 amp. All interior sites and roads are gravel, which can be dusty when other campers drive to fast. The check in office is also a fairly large store with a mixture of food and camping items. The staff is friendly and they lead you to your site. There is free WIFI, however it is like most RV Parks, very slow, takes a while to logon. I gave up and used my own WIFI, it is that bad!!. Anything and everything that you may want is just a couple of miles from the park: Movie Theater, Wal-Mart, Mall etc. The park is on the outskirts and just a few minutes from downtown Fort Worth and Dallas. We have stayed at the park several times and would stay again. We are traveling from Southern California. Love this area of Texas, I think you will also. - Roy Fleming

We've stayed here before, but won't next time. The gravel roads are in need of repair, grass needs mowing. Lots of construction going on but apparently no maintenance. There are new owners and the price has gone up. Too high a price for a gravel parking lot. - cameocamper
