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. We camped at Loyd Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Loyd Park in a Motorhome.

This is a wonderful park on the south central part of the DFW metroplex. There are many loops and the sites vary greatly from loop to loop: some are in densely wooded areas (with and without a lake view), while others are in wide open grassy areas with nice lake views (some are right on the lake). We stayed in Loop F which was more open and with a lake view. Our site did not have sewer hookups, but bathrooms (with showers) were a short walk away. Some of the sites with full hookups are still under repair from severe flooding this past Spring. Cell and OTA TV reception were both excellent. There is an excellent sandy beach area leading down to the clean, clear lake. There is a fishing pier, excellent playground, and kayak/canoe rentals down by the beach area. All of these things make Loyd Park an outstanding destination for our family with small kids. We will certainly return. Note that there is a $10 per day vehicle fee in addition to the camping fees. We camped at Loyd Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Just a few minutes north on TX 360 is a new shopping center with Home Depot, Target, Starbucks, restaurants, etc. Arlington is only 10-15 minutes away as well.

Easily our favorite campground in Texas. The sites are huge and most of them are secluded in trees so they are very private. You really get the feeling you are somewhere in the wilderness when in reality you're just 15 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Dallas. The sites are paved and level; some have sewer connection but most don't. There's even a sandy beach on the shore of Joe Pool Lake, if you're so inclined. We're fortunate in that Loyd Park is just 30 minutes from home, so when the urge strikes we just set out for a relaxing weekend in the woods. All sites have a picnic table under a covered gazebo. It appears that all the sites are back-ins, so beware if that is and issue for you. Otherwise, highly recommended. We camped at Loyd Park in a Motorhome.

The park staff was friendly when we arrived and gave us 10 sites to choose from. We had a long, shady site with a covered pavilion. We arrived on Thursday and had few neighbors. Friday night there were no camp sites available in the park. It is obvious that this is a park well used by local residents. Remarkably, both nights were quiet and pleasant. I would recommend this park. I know that we will return to it because of its location near shopping and sports facilities. We did not use the showers or restrooms. Our rate includes a $2 per day per person entrance fee and 30 amp electric and water service, no sewer. We camped at Loyd Park in a Motorhome.

We camped in site 9 (water and 30A electric) at Loyd Park. Urban park, but feels like you are not near a city. All sites are 30A electric and water. A few sites have sewer. $10 per vehicle per day fee in addition to campsite fee. We have camped here many times. We camped at Loyd Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The only really annoying thing about this park is having to pay a $10 per day vehicle access fee on top of the camping fees. The total paid above includes the vehicle fee and the Good Sam discount. We stayed here because it was the closest park to both Dallas and Fort Worth that had better than a 6 rating. At the time we stayed at least half the sites were still closed due to flooding but there were still plenty of available sites. This is actually a very nice park; the sites are very well laid out with a huge amount of room between each site, full concrete pads and a shelter with BBQ at each site. Our only real problem was that there is only 30A service and with temperatures around 40C (104 old measurement) it was totally inadequate for keeping our rig cool. We stayed in site 214 which was a double wide site although most of the sites looked big enough to handle any big rig. We camped at Loyd Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Most of the park is currently flooded. I believe you can enjoy it in better weather and once all the flood will be taken care of.

It close to major shopping. Most of the spots are shaded but not all. Our site wasn't shaded but had nice private big grass area next to it. We camped at Loyd Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent last fathers day there with the family - the lot was huge. We have a large pop up camper and took two vechicles and we still had plenty of room. We took our sons small plastic pool and bike which he used the whole weekend. The lots are large enough and wooded you have privacy from the other campers. It is wooded so be careful with the critters out there - they like to come out at night. The bathrooms are not air conditioned or cleaned very well, so be prepared. The picnic tables have covers for shade and there is a grill and firepit at each spot. Our family had a great time. We may need to book a little earlier next time to be closer to the water. We camped at Loyd Park in a Tent Trailer.

I would give this a 10 for location to our house. Its a quick get away but they seem to be allowing more and more folks that tent camp, thus don't have the greatest camping etiquette, if you will. We will no longer get a water front site because we get uninvited guests in your campsite. One helped himself to a beer out of our cooler. Other than that, its a great place. Buying the season pass is well worth it if you camp here like we do: around 6-10 times per year. Quick and easy, but know where to go. We camped at Loyd Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our favorite campground to stay at. We've never had a bad experience here. The sites are level, some are shaded, some are not. Some sites are by the lake, others are in the woods. Friendly and helpful park rangers. We camped at Loyd Park in a Motorhome.

This park has very few sites that you can see the lake from . We made reservations three weeks ahead and still did not get the site we requested and were told we could have when we called. We paid for two nights and the second nite when we came back from a day trip another motorhome was parked in our site. We had to wait over an hour for the park attendants to get the squatter moved from our site. The office made a mistake and they seem very bad at running the park. It was a bad experience and we will not return there to camp again. We camped at Loyd Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here for 2 weeks during Christmas and New's Year while visiting family. Great value, friendly staff, great location, and ample hiking trails. Loved the proximity to dining and shopping. We have a boxer and he loved the open space. Parked close to a unheated bath house and although the water was hot, our showers were short. One bath house within the park was heated and we used it once. New Year's weekend had a lot of people in the park. We will definitely stay again. We camped at Loyd Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Loyd Park is one of our favorite local campgrounds. We had a group of six sites and each of them was spacious, private and very clean. You can't go wrong staying at Loyd Park is you're in the area. We camped at Loyd Park in a Travel Trailer.
