This is actually a very nice park. The sites are ample & wide enough. The laundry room has 5 new washers and dryers which were in perfect condition. We were greeted with enthusiasm. I had to have a package FedEx'd to me while staying there & the young man at the office made sure I was notified that it arrived. We would stay here again. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We had to have repairs on our Malibu & went to Eldorado Chevrolet in McKinney, they were able to do a diagnosis & because the part had to be gotten locally we were booked a day later. After dropping the car off we received a courtesy ride back to the RV park, & a ride back when the car was done

With all the construction going on GPS is not reliable.

This was just an overnight stay. Office was helpful and accommodating on the phone, friendly when we checked in. Fairly full, but neat, tidy spaces. Easy access from US 75. We would stay here again without hesitation. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Wow!!! The new ownership has really cleaned this place up! The old management is gone and the new management is helpful, flexible, a delight! The place is clean, attractive, very family friendly (don't know what the last reviewer was talking about). Mini-golf, clean pool, more than adequate washers/dryers, nice lounge, Wi-Fi is wonderful. This will be our regular stay. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Lighthouse RV let us down. It's a shame to have a reservation and there not be the pull-through needed when we arrived. I have a large motorcoach and I reserved months before. I accepted the back-in offered and then find no pool open and the laundry had a broken machine. We still were able to park and we were worried because of what looked like long term people staying who were not what we would desire. We were told by the next rig over to lock all possessions because of theft. We were able to move after 2 nights to another RV park close by. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We have been here about 1 1/2 months. Moderately nice, reasonable park. Generally would give a higher rating. The manager is very helpful, polite and caring. However, his wife has managed to turn us so far off as to be unbelievable. We had considered staying for another couple of months, but her extreme rudeness to us recently (all the result of being 10 minutes late to pick up a dryer load in the laundry?) has changed our plans so that when this months rent is over, so are we! If you can manage to only deal with the manager, you'll enjoy it. Stay away from the wife...as she is out to ruin the business of the place. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This place is filthy. Most sites are full-timers and people park all over the place. There was dog dropping all over my site (I had to clean it myself). The management was overly assertive and not at all helpful. The only positive was the easy access to Frisco and Plano. Hopefully we will never, never stay there again.

This park worked for us as a convenient location to spend time with family. Interior roads and sites are packed gravel/dirt with patchy grass and pine trees in between, it had rained a lot so there was some mud. Our site was fairly level, with enough room to get around OK. What struck me most about this park is that it just needed a little TLC. Our picnic table was wobbly. Restroom and showers were Ok but not spotless. Laundry room had 6 each washers and dryers, 2 dryers did not work. The swimming pool and small kid play area looked OK. Lots of full time residents. Some yapping dogs, some freeway noise, but not too bad. Wi-fi worked good. I would return again to be near family. It is located along a frontage road parallel to Hwy 75, with poor signage. The price is based on a monthly rate of $399, which I thought was reasonable for what they offer. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park with shade trees and easy pull-through sites. The log lodge is quite nice and it has a lovely pool area. Not too much else to do there and the Wi-Fi (free) internet was really slow. Overall we liked it and the people were friendly. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We had originally made plans to stay at another RV park which is just right down the road. We have never been to this area so we didn't know what to expect. We arrived at the other park and turned right around to get out of there. Very creepy place. We rolled into Lighthouse RV Resort and actually got there 30 minutes after the office closed. The door was still open, and the manager was about to lock up and leave. I explained our situation, and she told me, "take one of these two spots here and just pay up in the morning." The lady was very kind and I don't know of too many other people who would have done that for anyone. Most others would have said, "Sorry, you're late, and we are closed." So, thumbs up to the management here for taking care of people when they didn't have to. Besides this park and the other one down the road that we left from, there are no other parks around. Had she not done that for us, we would have been up a creek. The park seems to have a lot of permanent residents which for me is completely fine. I would rather have people in the park that see what's going on at all times. Keeps the riffraff out. The park seemed to be very nice and clean with LOTS of trees and shade. We were assigned to a pull-through site which was really easy to get into. The pad was half gravel but surprisingly level. I didn't have to put any levelers under the tires. We didn't get to use the swimming pool or restrooms, but overall, great place to spend the night if you're traveling through. It's a little ways from the city, but close enough to make the short drive. The only reason I gave this place a 9 and not a 10 was for the ease of finding the place. We passed it up once because there were no signs and the grass on the medians next to the highway was so tall it was hard to see what road to take. We finally figured it out, and after that, it was easy to return to from going out to eat. Not a huge issue at all but maybe a sign or two off of Hwy 121 would be helpful. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We found the park to be clean, friendly and well-maintained. It is a bit awkward to get to. Going on Hwy. 75N taking exit 45 you must immediately get into the left hand lane because you must make a left turn almost immediately out of fast traffic. The turn is almost impossible to spot on a dark night. We stayed here 5 nights for a nephew's wedding festivities. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

A clean resort with level sites. There is some highway sounds at night but not excessive. Location is ideal for the US 75 corridor in north Texas. We will stay here again because of location and Staff. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Have stayed at the Lighthouse for a few years. Sorry to say, it has gone down hill. Trash around the park and smells coming from the sewer site that are unoccupied. It took a week to get the management to remove a broken down redwood table that, according to neighbors, had been there for quite a while. It wasn't until after we moved it to another site that management removed it. There is a lot of trash around the trash bins and in the park. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

An old and tired park but serviceable. Our site was to short and just barely wide enough with our slides extended. The site was level enough for our leveling system but caused problems for others who arrived and had to manually level the rig with blocks. The nearest street light was working but many on the grounds were out. Grass was mowed only twice during our 6 week stay. Managers offered a cool reception. On a scale of 1 to 5 when they first meet you they rate a 2 and once they get to know you it is about a 3. The streets are in poor repair, made of black top with holes repaired with loose rock. Bathrooms were old and tired but were as clean as they could be considering the age. Water was acceptable, electrical did not cause us any problems. We received local channels in Digital from the Dallas TX. service area. Laundry is a mix of older and newer machines. In general they leave towels, shorts and socks damp. $1.00 to $1.25 per machine depending on the age of the machine. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

To call this an "RV Resort" is stretching the truth to the limit. Most of the RV's here seemed to be long term residents. The internal roads and sites are in a poor state of repair with big potholes everywhere. Our assigned site was muddy and not level. They advertise Wi-Fi but don't tell you that there is an additional charge for it. The manager took our money didn't explain how to get to our site or tell us about the other amenities. The noise from I-75 was disturbing. Would not stay here again except as a last resort. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are a little too close together for our tastes, and a little muddy. Interior roads are a little rough. Thought WiFi was free but actually, there is a charge. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.
