This park was a Jeckyl/Hyde for us. Power was solid, ran two A/C's, fridge on electric and water heater on electric during daytime temps hitting 100 deg without any voltage dips. Our site was at least a 90' long pull-thru. Park staff goes out of their way to be friendly.

That was the Jeckyl part, now for the Hyde. This place is covered over with RV-clawing trees. My 5th wheel is a little taller than average at 13'6" but some of the limbs I had to dodge were at least two feet below my roof-line. Interior roads are paved but very narrow and they allow campers to park their cars and trucks off the edge of the road. Getting past those vehicles is like threading a needle. The trees in my site were so close to my roof that I could not deploy my sat dish or my over the air antenna. But even with the OTA antenna laying flat on the roof I got 40 channels. Almost everything except CBS.

My rate was higher than previous posters because I was a non-resident. This place is definitely a local favorite as evident by the weekend crowds. This is a $25 park, it is not a $35 park. We camped at Pilot Knoll Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Pilot Knoll Park campground is a beautiful park on Lewisville Lake. It is operated by the city of Highland Village. Wooded sites and most all are on the lake or have lake views. Sites are $25/night and have 50A electric and water with a central dump station. Back in and pull throughs available. Most sites can accommodate large RV's. Reserve online through the Highland Village website. We were in site 30 (primo site) this trip. We've camped here many times and will return.

Great place for a weekend gateway. 5 minutes from town but feels like your away except for airport traffic. Highland Village is a very safe Dallas suburb. So if you are travling through and looking for a safe spot this is a great option. 50 amp electrical and water hookup. Excellent pressure as I had to turn down my regulator. Utilities are dedicated so no sharing a utility pole. No issues running AC. We camped at Pilot Knoll Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We camped at Pilot Knoll Park in Highland Village, TX, in site 32 for $25/night in November 2014. We've camped here many times and will return. Several sites have great lake views. 50A sites available and some are 30A only. Asphalt pads. Central dump station. Good walking and hiking trails. Great urban park. Walmart, groceries and restaurants 3 miles away. They have their own reservation system through the City of Highland Village. Intimidating at first, but easy to use once you set up an account. We camped at Pilot Knoll Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very clean and small park with lots of trees and water. Very friendly staff always willing to help out. We were in site 19 and was able to see the lake out the front and back of the rig. Easy park to get to and will be back. We camped at Pilot Knoll Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed here while visiting relatives in Dallas. Nice, well-maintained campground in a city park located on the shore of Lewisville Lake. Paved roads and level gravel sites. Restrooms/showers are clean. No cable TV or Wi-Fi. Gated access for security. Shopping/restaurants located about a mile away. Quiet, very pleasant park with lots of shade. We would stay here again. We camped at Pilot Knoll Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Campground managers / hosts are very friendly and helpful. Due to family circumstances they worked with us to allow us to extend our stay longer than their 14 day policy. Verizon Jet Pack worked well at this campground. If you are going to be returning after the gate closes, make sure ask for the code. Restrooms were always clean, although they are a bit old. No price difference for 50 vs. 30 amp sites. We camped at Pilot Knoll Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an exceptional city park. Huge sites, even for our 35' class A. Each site has a separate patio area. Beautiful lake view sites. Contrary to previous comments, there are no true waterfront sites, in that the sites stop short of the water, allowing everyone access to the lake. It would be nice to have sewer connections, but for visits of less than a week ( or driving up to dump) it is very doable. Even though there are plenty of shade trees, some sites offer clear view for satellites. We camped at Pilot Knoll Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Pilot Knoll Park and the City of Highland Village have elected to no longer accept the National Parks & Wildlife All Access passes. These passes provided retired military with service related disability compenasation to stay for 50% off. I guess this shows how much the City of Highland Village cares about the retired military. This year they also increased the rate to $25 per night. This increase and the requirement to pay Active.com a $2 fee to make reservations, have increased my costs from $9 per night to $27 per night. This park is not worth paying triple the cost for. Pilot Knoll Park is also becoming a little too run down and could use some improvements. There is no Wi-FI and poor TV reception. The other problem is the guests seem to think they can go anywhere. If you have a lakeside campsite, you can expect people to come into your site with their chairs, coolers and grills and "occupy" your campsite. I think I will find a better place to spend my recreational money. We camped at Pilot Knoll Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Had a level site, nice area with picnic table and fire pit. Our site was on the point so we had water on two sides, and could watch the sunset and sun rise. They had lifted the burn ban, so we were able to have a camp fire. Very clean and well kept. Restrooms were typical of COE but were clean. We will stay again. We camped at Pilot Knoll Park & Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Beware of Snakes. That sign was posted everywhere. Snakes??? And there were snakes! They would crawl out of the water at night to warm up on the pavement at night. So...walking a dog at night is an adventure. The roads were paved. The lake is lovely. Lots of trees. Lots of stickers, dirt and debris gets tracked in - I don't like to 'rough it' and camping there is the way it is. Not again. Ever. We camped at Pilot Knoll Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We were in #36 and stayed for 16 days. The park is always quiet during the week, but fills up on weekends. We had better Verizon service this time. Both cell and MiFi. We always enjoy staying here. They have completed the new road #2499 which runs right in front of the park. It makes it very easy coming from South from Swisher Rd or heading North from 407.

Very nice campground. Sites are very large. Nearly every site had shade and only a few were not on the lake. Many birds. No walking trails but the walk around the campground and to the park is fine. Roads are paved, sites are gravel. Most sites are fairly level. Rated 8 because there was no sewer hookups and no WiFi. Also, the dump station needs an overhaul as sewage is dumped into a pit and then has to be washed into the sewer pipe. We camped at Pilot Knoll Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

The WWW says the CG is closed due to high lake levels. We did not call further to make resv.

=====================

This information is wrong. I called the correct phone number 940-455-2228 and campground is open with no problems. Also the website address was wrong as well as the phone number. Correct web address and phone in place now.
