8 Parks near Jacksboro, Texas
Aug 2016 - $26.00
A very neat and well kept campground. $26 included the $3/day/person entry fee for wife and I. Sites were level and plenty of room between. Park entrance is almost in town, so a little road noise but nothing disturbing. - Waller Tim

This park is located within the city of Jacksboro, close to restaurants and shopping. When we arrived we were offered an upgrade to a full hook up spot which for $3 more per night, which we accepted. Sites are spacious in that section, however shade is hard to come by. The picnic table is within trees, but a little too far from the RV for comfort. Electric was steady and water pressure was 65PSI. Nice walking trail, Lost Creek which is .5 mile along the creek. There is a multi use trail which is 18 miles round trip. Park was clean and staff was helpful. Park was quiet while we were there, however the traffic moves very fast though the park, exercise caution when walking and biking. The historic site itself is very nice. The two rangers we dealt with were knowledgeable and helpful. The hospital building is a treasure of old tools and other medical items, officers quarters where interesting. Visitors' center was informative. Nice park store run by the Park Friends Group. - Fixn2gocamp

This is a typical west Texas kind of State Park and struggling with an under funded State Park Budget. For example, many of the historical buildings are in very poor repair. The camp grounds are a adequately spaced with only four (4) campsites offering water, electricity, and sewer. The best campsites are at the end of the road, next to a small creek, with a good many trees next to a 25' natural stone wall. The park as small lake with bass, catfish, and stocked trout. The park is just off the highway and immediately next to the small town of Jacksboro, Tx. - Jim Butler

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

Close to home. Nice area on waterfront. Boats pull up to sites. Host is helpful and keeps watch out for others. - Sbates

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

Highly recommended. This is what an RV campground should be. Lot's of activities for kids and adults. Site was a mixture of gravel and grass, very well maintained, and included full hook ups, picnic table and grill. We spent two nights here and wish it could have been longer. Most of the sites are tucked into a nice grove of trees, but we selected a treeless site to prevent interference with our satellite dish. Will definitely be back. - ajmurray

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

I have tried this park twice and I am removing it from my "to stay" list.
1 - No cell service. This is hard for us because we use the Thousand Trails on our days off and need to catch up on paperwork. We might be able to let this slide if their wifi EVER worked. They say there is wifi, but it is always down.
2 - Few sites not near lodge. Few 50 amp. hook ups at far rear of site. We have an electric hot water heater, so we like to have 50 amp. We also have 6 kids, so we like to be near the playground and the lodge.
3 - Pool and hot tub are small and closed (at least in March).
4 - The construction is shoddy. A/C are window units cut into the siding. The bathroom stalls are ox board. Even the nice buildings have pieces of siding missing paint messed up.
The park is in 3 sections:
"Hollywood" - is right by the lodge and mostly 50 amp, but it has filled with long-term rentals. They look nice and clean, but are full. There was one 30 amp site available.
"Suburbs" - just around the pond from Hollywood. Very walkable distance, but not visible. Laundry and shower house in the suburbs, as well as a volleyball net. Sites are LONG, but totally grass. 50 Amp was available. But when we went to back up to the hookups, we got nervous about the weight of our rig on the grass and opted for 30 amp in Hollywood because it had gravel.
"Back 40" - best I can tell this was an old, decrepit RV park that Thousand Trails bought out. Its s about a mile from the lodge. It is full of VERY long-term campers. It looks trashy and the dump station was flooded. I think this is only staff that camps here.
The perks - The staff is friendly and accommodating. They are kind of "back woods" folk. They are not grouchy with kids. They have Candy Bingo on Fridays where almost everyone is a winner. They have a game room and cafe. The adult lodge is nice. - mmette00

Very nice folks Che ked me in and led us to our site. Level pad, gravel. Great power and water with sewage. A bit of noise from the highway but bearable. Wifi was very weak. OK for an overnight stay. - OnNTwo

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 one did not get a 10 because, well, virtually nowhere gets a 10 with me. However given value for buck, $27 with Good Sam discount, there really is nothing to fault with this place. Very impressed with RV supplies & prices at office store. Very reasonable laundry prices. Sites are a mixed bag of pleasant surprises. We were given one with a concrete picnic table & seats plus a raised metal fire thingy. Saw a charcoal smoker at one site. All sites nicely shaded. Lots of semi permanents, all friendly, only one site a bit messy. No it is not a perfect CG. None are. If in need to stop in the area this is the place. - Veebyes

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

Needed a place to pull off 81/287 for the night. Was good for that. Staff was friendly. Had 50 amp service and CATV. Wi-Fi signal was good, but the connection was super slow and made checking email very tedious. A little noisy from trucks at night. Gravel pads not very wide, slides almost touch neighbors. If you use a GPS, ignore it and just get off the exit for Fruitland RD. It will be right off the exit. Nothing else around, so if you need a place to recharge your batteries, this will work. - metriccruiserguy

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
Jan 2015 - $25.00
We arrived late and only were able to stay overnight, but the park was a convenient stop right off the highway just north of Fort Worth. We could see highway traffic going by, but there were enough trees that the sight and sound didn't disturb us. We only interacted with the staff on the phone and online, but they were very helpful, giving us the code to the showers and free laundry and telling us which spots were available. The park was a little difficult to navigate as we arrived in the dark, but we found a cozy pull-through nearly alone on our row and spent a quiet night here on our journey. - Ardent Camper

Price reflects Passport America. Lot of seasonal or full-time residents, but a great surprise. What a PPA campground is expected to be like with the price. Not real fancy, but acceptable. Manager is great. Makes a nice place for an overnight stop. Campsites are not real level, but I was able to put a block on one side and level immediately. Free laundry, showers, and bath. Give it a try, we liked it. Manager said a lot of oil workers stay here, but this is off season. - Tampajohn
