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.

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.

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.

Well, if you don't break an axle in the pot holes or your leg in the cracks in the sidewalks, you're probably lucky. If you don't mind not going out after dark (because most of the night lights are out) then you might be alright. If you don't mind not having a working spa or green watered swimming pool and as long as you don't mind losing things out of the back of your truck you might stay. My wife was always afraid of being mugged at night, coming back from the laundry. We only used it once, kind of an emergency. Too dirty to go back. Don't bother complaining to management. They are bad tempered and will kick you out of the park and won't give you your money back. I heard many horror stories while I was here. Manager gambles, wife throws him out, etc, etc. I won't go back. We won't even talk about him pumping out the septic tanks into the bar ditch. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We liked this park. The owners were very friendly and nice. The sites are a little close together but each site has lots of great shade trees and nice grass. Half of the park consists of long term campers but all of them were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again and for more than 3 nights. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The owners seemed nice enough over the phone, however seemed to be irritated with us when we tried to park in our assigned space and could not get in. Almost all long term residents here and the spaces are so close together that they have to park their cars in the road. Real tight spaces to maneuver. Pool was nice, but spa was not working. OK for one night. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

Sites OK, rough gravel, some nice trees, not a lot of space between rigs but typical of most older RV parks. Some road noise from TX 75. A lot of long-term "campers." This would be a decent park if the advertised facilities were actually available. Pool & spa, nope, "broken" and locked up. Sauna--not on and locked up. Clubhouse very nice but locked up tight after 5PM. Considering the previous review found pretty much the same situation, this park is guilty of false advertising. I was told that it has recently sold. We'll see if the new owners are any better. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We visited park in 40' motorhome. We arrived at 6pm & found the office closed. Signage stated pay envelopes & park maps were in box--none were in box. There was no staff available to assist getting to a site. The roads & sites were once blacktopped, but have had gravel added to fill potholes. The roads were dusty. The sites had pine trees that were not friendly to big rigs--I could not exit the site without rubbing the side of my coach and my neighbor could not extend his slide due to a tree. The utilities were modern & well placed. There was a beautiful pool & spa, but it was locked. There was a nice recreation room, but it was locked. The laundry room was locked. The restrooms were locked. We felt that a park that locked all facilities at 5:30 pm was overpriced at $31. We will find an alternative next time! We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I loved this park!! It has the kindest hosts we have met yet. They kept the park very neat and tidy and the restrooms and showers were sparkling. We stayed at the park for four months and enjoyed every endeavor this park had to offer. The pool, sauna and weight room were always clean as was the laundry room. I really like the atmosphere of the clubhouse, very warm and cabin-like. Exactly what you would expect to find in Texas. I would happily recommend this park to my family and friends. I can't wait to come here again. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a fairly nice property which needs to be spiffed up some. Has potential, but access to some of the amenities are inconsistent. Internal roads need better maintenance. Highway noise can be annoying. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.
