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. 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.

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. We camped at Lighthouse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
