20 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

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

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

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

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

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

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 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

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

The Vineyards is an excellent park that has the possibility of being outstanding. Only part of one section of the park was open during our stay due to flooding. Of the section that was open, there was only one level place (right past the store) to disconnect your toad. (There may be other places once the flood waters recede.) All hookups worked and were well-placed with no extensions needed. My only real complaint about this park is how unlevel the sites are. Even the renovated sites where they have poured concrete are unlevel, with the exception of 6 or 7 of them. We were in one of the semi-level sites and only needed one set of 1.5" boards on the back. Most motorhomes we saw had at least one tire off the ground. I don't understand the concept of spending money to pour new concrete and not leveling the site. Some of the concrete sites had a 6" slope from front to back. Beyond this, I have no complaints. The park hosts were friendly and helpful. The park is conveniently located with many things to do right in Grapevine. The restrooms were clean, though there was no shower curtain. We stayed 5 nights in June and it was always quiet and peaceful. - dad2aprincess

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 "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'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

Park has new owners who increased the rates to $46.00 per night. This is a clean park with a lot of full time residents. The WiFi is not good and either does not allow you to connect or stay connected. If you are lucky and get connected it is very slow. While this is a good park it is over priced for what you get. I will look for another park next time I pass through. - MovinOnDownTheRoad

Made it to Texas with no problems, had a monthly reservation at the Texan RV Resort (Mansfield) via phone for a back-in. When I got my receipt it was for a pull-through (no big deal). We were told that since we weren't going to be coming in until about the 5th that our monthly rent would be pro-rated - it was not.
We arrived and at first our reservation could not be found. Then we were led to a spot that had a travel trailer in it. Then we were told to park in another spot - okay - no problem.
So we pull in, drop the trailer off of the truck and proceed. Then someone in the camp's golf cart comes up and says we have to move to ANOTHER spot.
When I went to clarify what was going on, I was told that a "previous employee" didn't update the computer and then the girl that was on shift the day before yesterday didn't update either.
We were told that we would get $100 off our next month's rent - but what if we don't stay another month? This park was not our first pick in this area.
On a side note, we have a MDT International with a 42' 5th wheel and the first spot would have been tough to get into anyway. The second spot we got into easily (and it had a shade tree with grass). The final spot has no shade and no grass.
When asked why we had to move out of the second spot I was told that THAT spot had been reserved specifically for tomorrow's arrival.
To top it off, Wi-Fi is weak and won't connect.
