We were promised a pull thru, none available on arrival, had to take a back in and these are not pad sites we parked on. Something in the way of concrete is a better option for us. It was a bit strange to try to go down a muddy road to access the park. Hopefully better in the future. Many living there don't make for a good camping experience as the dogs leave poop around where they go. Our experience wasn't the best so we moved on after 2 nights of our week stay. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Public bathroom are basic concrete. Wifi never worked the entire weekend. The grass has thick stickers, so bad that the dogs could not even go to the restroom. They would cover and stick to the bottom of your shoes and, in turn, you carry them in the house. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Cabin.

Didn't use restrooms or other facilities and $40.00 to park trailer? Muddy spot and we departed the next AM.

I think the man and woman that checked us in were the owners and they were very friendly and helpful. My biggest complaint is the $40.00 cost to park in the mud and the construction that made it a bit awkward to find the campground. We won't be back. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Decent little park it is just too bad about all the construction on US 75 here. Makes it hard to get in and out of the park.

Sites are decent, pretty level, lots of pine trees in park making it difficult for satellite users. Has free wi-fi if you can get it to work. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

I've been to Resorts and this place does not qualify. The roads are in terrible shape and very little landscaping to speak of. Supposed to have Wi-Fi internet access but it is very unpredictable. It is convenient to north Dallas and has a pretty good pool. 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.
