Fort Richardson State Park, Historic Site & Lost Creek Reservoir State Trailway is in Jacksboro, Texas. Fort Richardson was a military installation from 1867-1878. The historic site has several restored buildings. The park has 10+ miles of hiking and mixed use trails. Lost Creek flows through the park and is fed by multiple springs. There are 40+ RV sites. The 50A & water sites are our favorites. They also have 30A sites and a few full hookups. We were in site 19. - drfife

Site 8 was a pretty level pull through. Water and electric. Close to showers. Loved seeing wildlife. Very clean laundromat in town by post office. Staff very helpful. Downside is there is only one shower/restroom building so if you camp in east loop you have to drive over. Definitely would be back. - coffeeman1

We stayed two nights at historic Fort Richardson and were very happy with our stay. Staff Rangers were very knowledgeable and helpful. There is a nice welcome station and small store with an abundance of information on the history of Fort Richardson as well as other state parks. We were offered a pull through site, I think we were in #10 which we gladly took but realized they were not really necessary. All sites look easy to access. There are very few full hookups, I think 4 or maybe 6 and those were taken when I made reservations so this is something the park might address. Lots to see and do at the park. The historical fort buildings are very interesting and I felt would be a great history lesson for kids. Staff in these buildings were happy to tell you interesting facts on the forts history. We walked the grounds got lots of exercise looking at all of the outbuildings. The sites back up to wooded trees and a river nice for hiking. Fire pits are at each site as well as picnic tables. There is a small pond that is about a mile walk from the campsites. My husband fished there both mornings of our stay. Trout seemed to be what was biting that trip. The park was holding a free fishing day the Saturday we were there so there were people from all over fishing not just the guest. It was very quite at night, no loud guest so we slept great. Loved the isolation of the place. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan on returning again some time. - True Texas

The price of this campground is overboard just because some deer walk around the camp sites. It is off the main road but there is still a lot of road noise from the big trucks. Had electric, water, and sewer but no TV. You will need to use satellite because there no cable or over the air signals. For this price you would think there would be something. - belanga

Enjoyed our stay. Very quiet and clean park. Graveled roads with grass areas to play volleyball, playground and walking path to lake. Lake used for fishing. - bterrell

Selma Park is about 4 miles from State Highway 287. As such it is a convenient waystation for us.
1. Park is unkept - grass was knee-high. Sticker-burr grass was everywhere (if you have dogs, don't let them out!). Sites were not level, for the most part, and there was soil erosion in many places that made rig placement difficult.
2. Fire ants everywhere
3. Bathrooms were locked. We don't normally use them, but just fyi.
4. Dump station is a BIG problem. Water wasn't working. Ramp sloped away from the dump hole, so we had to use blocks to level the trailer to get everything out.
5. All the water locations had sign saying non-potable. We had our own, and others posting here said the water was OK, but was well water and as such couldn't be labeled potable. Your call...
6. Host wasn't around -we'll have to mail in our payment because there were no forms, and I won't just leave cash.
The shame of the state of disrepair is that this park has "great bones". The lake is attractive, there's a lot of waterfront, a fishing pier, and sites that are heavily shaded and some that are right out on a peninsula into the lake. This could be a beautiful go-to destination if they would clean it up. - TIN Diesel

21 sites. Amenities: E,W, Dump. Bathroom and shower very dimly lit but clean. Sites with electric have relatively
new 50 amp service. Sites with water are labeled "not potable" but office person said its well water so the city can't label it potable. Site with electric & water are $15 (we had no discount). Verizon 2 bars. Mifi slow. Some sites have shade shelters, no grills. Some sites have tree shade some complete sun. Roads hard packed gravel, sites fairly level. We stayed in site 13, in a 39 ft motor home with well water and50 amp elec. Our Direct satellite TV service excellent. - User2477

I have reviewed this campground previously, but feel compelled to again leave a review, for the purpose of letting others know that this RV park continues to be "at the top of its game". I have never encountered owners/operators of an RV park that care more and work harder at keeping their facility in top notch condition. We have camped here a few times each year for the past few years, and each time we go back, I notice something else that they have done, as far as installing something new or improving something existing. I have always enjoyed myself at Mitchell RV Resort, and really do appreciate that Doris and Kevin go out of their way to make sure that everything is as good as it can be, and that everyone is enjoying themselves. I give them major credit for being willing to try new events, and for working so hard to put on the many events that they hold throughout the year. I just love that this place has "something for everyone." The atmosphere feels as "laid back" and safe as any campground I have ever stayed in. I said in a previous review that they have the best wifi of any RV park I have been in, and that still holds true. The number of "networks available" is enough that they don't all fit on one screen when "searching for a network to connect to". There is just so much to like about Mitchell RV Resort, and I always look forward to going back. This review is "glowingly-positive", I know that. I don't work there, and am not affiliated with them at all. I just really like to "get the word out" to fellow campers when I come across such a top notch campground. - KeystoneTT

You need to know that they is no cell reception if you have Verizon. There is nothing close to this park. They charge for each additional child beyond the two adults. I hate it when parks do that. I won't be back. However, the campground is kept very nice and the grounds are pretty. - Susiecamera

This is a wonderful park. This is a large, impeccably maintained park. The owners really appreciate their guests. The hosts have done everything possible to build and maintain a quality park with something for everyone. There is a golf course, large dog park, multiple playgrounds, multiple swimming pools, and meeting facilities. It would be a fabulous place to hold a meeting or family reunion. We will definitely return for a longer stay.
Well done! - larriin

The Park itself is Not Bad......the condition of repairs is wrong! No Pool (all tore up with no work being done at all), No wi-fi at adult lodge, shade at 50 amp sites is non existent , interior roads need work. Speed limit needs to be enforced of dirt-gravel roads. Quiet at night ....just needs some TLC! - acampingfan

As Thousand Trails parks good this is not very will maintained. Sites are grassy and very long. But pool is closed, hot tub closed, no WiFi, no store. All the things that are expected from a Thousand Trails Preserve is missing. Roads are in real bad shape. All of the nicer sites are taken up by long tern residents. Three washers for a park with 290 sites. - Nevadadon

Rate reflects additional charge for 50A. Very few sites have sewer, but there are available dump stations. The sites in Section 1 are very deep, easy to park long motorhome with toad in front. The hookups are at the very back of the site, so you have to back all the way in or have a very long electric cord and/or water hose. The roads are in passable shape. The campground has a large area of common use (ball fields, pool, etc.) that we did not use, but seems to be well maintained. Lots of longterm renters of the sites, so the campground was not as "friendly" as we have come to like. - pattic777

Tired and need an overnight before crossing Dallas; then stay, but know there will be noise from 287. Lady at check in was friendly and if you dont mind grass and not so level space then a big rig can get in and out. Entrance for hwy is tricky so pay attention. - Jimmy Swager

Not a bad park, but not a great park. It was the right distance along our route and got us northwest of Fort Worth, which is what we were looking for. Plenty of room for our dog to run, and a nice pool for us, both pluses. Plenty of highway noise, but not too bad as close to the road as the park is. Could use a little more maintenance and TLC, but the bathhouses were fine. Staff was very friendly. We'd stay again if we were passing this way. - BamaRambler

This was just an overnight stay. Not much better than a Walmart parking but it was quiet. It is a funky, small, rundown place with mostly permanent residents. The lady managing the office was very nice. Greeted us as we arrived and said pick a spot then just come up to the office to register. Doubt that we would stay here again unless just for overnight. - Rick & Karen

Stayed 1 night, which was OK. Park is old and not well maintained. Ladies bathroom was clean but men's was very dirty. Paid Passport America rate, which the book said $10 but was charged $15, and that was for 30 amp. - 1st time fulltimer

This park is old and in need of updating, but the sites are long and level gravel. We were able to fit on our site (B4)in our 40 footer without unhooking the toad.It it very close to the highway so traffic noise is a factor, but it also is convenient if just passing through like we were. Cable was supposed to be available but ours did not work. Wi-Fi was available but very slow. The rate we paid was with a Passport America membership. We would stay here again if just passing through because it is convenient. - DonnaZ2011

Easy access from Hwy 287 and restaurant within 100 yards of campground. Staff super friendly. FHU Pull Thru site was level and long enough so we didn't have to unhook our tow. Electric, water and sewer acceptable. Only con is RV parks sets between Hwy 287 and the busy railroad track. Noise didn't bother us. - LJolly

Park is easy to find the pull into office area could be better. The lady in office very nice. Park is a little hard to navigate because all the roads are gravel/rock with trees close by. The sites are gravel/rocks I had a pull through not very long had to unhook so I would not block the road. Site was not level but for the price it was ok for a over night stay. - Bigdodgediesel

Nice quiet park. Park host is working hard to build up business. Free laundry was nice. Clean, tidy park. Very close to railroad with frequent train traffic. Easy on/off 287. - Barbiejen68
