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.

Well kept public park! Quiet except for weekends of holidays; sites well separated and great walking trails. Helpful staff with regular police patrols...we'll be back! We camped at Loyd Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice, clean city park. There are a variety of sites; some shaded, some open, some single and some double, some are lakeside and some are not. Trash is put on the road and is picked up all during the day. Our site was perfectly level. The price reflects our senior's discount - did not have to pay the $10 auto entry fee. The reason I didn't give this park a 10 is because, even though the restrooms & showers are clean, the showers are push button, stay on for only a few seconds and appear to have only cold water. Not too too bad in the summer but I'll bet unbearable in winter. Fax: 817-467-4931 We camped at Loyd Park in a Tent Trailer.
Our favorite local park, always clean, plenty of helpful park workers always on patrol. Great sized sites, spaced out just enough and restrooms/showers get cleaned a few times a day. We camped at Loyd Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice staff. Might have been better experience if we had better site. The electrical switchbox malfunctioned and blew several of our fuses. Good location, so I might stay here again. We camped at Loyd Park in a Motorhome.

Great park close to the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I've held an RV Rally there for the past 2 years. All of the folks there are great to work with. It's a very nice park to get away to. We camped at Loyd Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park, good shade in some spots. Right on top of Joe Pool Lake so bring a fishing pole. Close to all DFW attractions with 6-Flags and the Rangers just a few miles away. Nice place to stay with the kiddos. We did an RV rally here in 2007. We camped at Loyd Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground, with lots of trees, on the Joe Pool Lake, all within a few miles of Dallas, TX. We stayed here because we wanted a scenic location near Dallas Baptist University, where my daughter and my money goes. Each site is quite large, with a covered picnic table, paved asphalt pad with near level parking, water and electricity. Trees separate the sites, so you have some privacy from your neighbors. The bath house was spotless clean, but lacked some of the comforts that I am used too. The shower is a single button that sprays a narrow high pressure stream of water. On the women’s side – it sprayed a fine mist, which made getting wet a challenge. There is no place to put your clothing while showering. The toilet looked like the toilet from a prison movie – a stainless steel bowl, with no seat or lid, but very clean. Pricing - $15.00 per camp site, plus $10.00 per vehicle.
