13 Parks near Perrin, Texas
Jun 2016 - $25.00
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

Park personnel take pride in their park and it shows throughout. Grounds are kept very nice as well as all facilities. Twenty-three 50 amp sites, 4 which include sewer. Eighteen 30 amp sites, none have sewer hookups. All sites are spacious with shade. There are also 11 air conditioned and heated cabins. There are tours of Fort Richardson historical site and several well maintained hiking trails. For those of you into geocaching, there are 5 or 6 within the park and more in the surrounding area. We definitely will return when in this area. - TN RVers

Price reflects $24 camping (30 amp) + $7 for one person day-use fee. (Get the parks pass to save on day use fees and a couple of coupons for camping.) The layout of this park is very strange. You must drive over the spillway (running water on the road) to get to the campgrounds. Several camping loops: tent, 50amp, 30amp and equestrian. No sewer at the sites, but there is a dump station. We arrived after 4:30pm, instructions say to pay in the morning thus didn't have the problem of picking and then not fitting as lots of spots will be tight for larger rigs. Once in the site, it is very spacious with fire ring, grill, and picnic table on concrete slab. RV is parked on asphalt, but the ground was sand. No TV channels and no Sprint signal, 2 Verizon bars. Bits of trash all over. Water is opaque brown. Good wildlife viewing. It was quiet. Walking the lake side trail, lots of trash, uneven due to walking on it while wet, and then ended in water much sooner than illustrated on map. More about the layout issues... Only the northern most equestrian camp loop has the trail head for their trails. It is quite a hike from any other camping loop. Didn't matter to us, since the trails were closed! To get to the trail head for the Trailway (former railroad tracks, 20 miles total), it is 2.6 miles one way from our 30amp loop through the spillway. We could only go east on the Trailway; the westward direction was closed! I didn't take points off for closed trails, but would be nice if they were more accessible from your site than having to load up the car and drive to a trail head. - MichelleKry

Rate reflects second night 1/2 off with Texas State Park Annual Pass and $7 per person per day entrance fee, normally $26 per night for electric/water hookup. Nicely spaced and private campsites, screened by trees. Many miles of hiking trails, although many were closed due to recent rains. Most sites appear fairly level. Park ranger at entrance was helpful and efficient. Would stay here again. - Sempre_Estate

This State Park is close to Dallas - Fort Worth so we were surprised as to how nice it is. The Park's staff was friendly and helpful. Please note that you are required to pick your campsite from a map and then go to that site. If you don't like it, then you have to return to the Park's HQ. At this time of the year, it was cool and we were the only RV in our section of the Park. There are at least 5 small fishing docks around the edge of the Lake and of course a rock climbing area which is popular. The camp grounds and park were clean and free of litter. We saw many birds and 8-10 deer in or near our campsite. We'll certainly be back. - Jim Butler

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

I called ahead and was told that big rigs were not a problem. But, it was a problem. To access the sites it was necessary to cross a very narrow bridge going around a curve. Very tricky! The sites are all grass. Mostly permanent folks--a couple of tenters came in while there. Would be okay for "camping" but not the type of place for a big high-end rig. - TexasRee

It is our second stay here, as it is one of the least expensive options in the area. We like the canopy covers in the TX heat. Getting into the slots was a challenge with our 65' rig. - Behemoth

This is a bare bones, no frills campground but it is well maintained and convenient if you are in the area. At the present time there are a lot of pipeline workers staying here while construction is going on in the area. Not a lot of trees for shade but most of the individual sites are covered with metal "carport" type covers, to include the concrete patios. No problem for any size RV fitting under the awnings and there is still plenty of room for slide outs. The office is in the first camper on the left when you enter the campground and does not accept credit cards...cash or check only. I will stay here again when I'm visiting friends in the area. - BigDadDogg
May 2007 - $25.00
This is a new park. There are 12 sites that are covered and have covered patios. Great for hot Texas sun and hail storms! We were told that they are going to build covers on more sites. Gravel roads and sites. Nothing fancy, but clean and convenient if you need to be in the area. Free WiFi at the sites. - TexasRee

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
Apr 2016 - $3.00
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

Sites are flat and utilities are good. Lots of room especially considering this 9-acre park is 99 percent vacant. According to the owners, very few transient RVs use this place. During our stay there were 5 or 6 semi-permanent trailers on site, all of which were reasonably clean and uncluttered. Evidently, the heyday for this park was during oil boom times when the workers camped here. The dirt road into the property had several large potholes and ruts, but nothing that caused us to bottom-out. The latrines/showers were clean but unused as is the large gathering room. There as one washer and dryer under patio cover but we didn't use them so we're unsure of condition and cleanliness. There are no scheduled activities here nor playgrounds for little children. This CG would be ideal for large group gatherings. We'd stay again due to price and extreme quiet! - Full-Time Roamers

Very helpful and friendly owners. Level sites. The road into the park has several places that need fill. While we were there gravel was brought in to fill some of the deep places, but more is needed. We stayed three nights in a motor home. - Janefairlight
Mar 2009 - $20.00
This is a P.A. park. The road into the park is pretty narrow and over 1/4 mile long. It has giant chug holes. Thought I was going to turn my motorhome over, and there was no where to turn around. There were lots of full-time residents, dogs running around. There was a dead horse in the campground that some men were trying to load up on a trailer. Good electricity, but not a good experience. Didn't receive a receipt for my payment. - Mike and Claudia
Jul 2011 - $20.00
My price reflects the weekly rate. A smaller park at the top of a hill with nice views. A slightly dusty and gravel washboard entry road are the only negatives. A very quiet park with easy access sites. Very easy and friendly check in. Spacing is very good and we would stay again. - run2

Lovely, clean park just down the road from Lake Mineral Wells State Park (which is always full). Beautiful views of the valley. Helpful and friendly owner. Definitely recommend a stay if you're anywhere near Mineral Wells, Texas. - jharblood

The park hostess was very nice and drove us to our site. The park wasn't full, so we were able to select the best site in the house which had a wonderful view. We were not able to pick up any WiFi. I would recommend this park for people touring the area or overnighting. We stayed one night. - vblake

This park is a joke. NO bathrooms or showers. It is only for monthly renters. There are older travel trailers there with no pride of ownership. They have a monthly rate of 400.00. The daily rate is 12.00. So if you plan on staying long term choose the daily rate, as it is actually cheaper. 360.00 a month at the daily rate, 400.00 a month is you pay by the month.??. BAD road going into the place, you WILL scrape your bumpers going in. They do NO clean up, because the place has trash laying around blowing into your area. Dogs run loose, barking all night, the highway noise is pretty bad. Lots of truckers. Electric is hit and miss, our box kept shorting out, and lights dimming all the time. DO NOT stay here. CASH only, and they don't do receipts. - Mr Zorg
Dec 2010 - $25.00
Park is mainly for monthly, only 1 site is open for over night, it's a pull through, but small. The owners do not run the place, the previous owner does manage it, if that's what you can call it. No one cleans, no maintenance is done here at all, faulty electrical. All utilities are paid with monthly and weekly rates. It's a very high price for such an older run down park. Hwy noise is terrible, no naps here people, big rigs running by all the time. The managers are nice enough, but can't give out receipts for your stay. Which was an issue for us. We came here to look for a home, sold our motor-home and purchased a travel trailer cheap, lots of the FEMA units for sale in Ft. Worth and surrounding area. The area has history, but nothing as for things to do, so I guess all that went with the history? You can get DSL cable internet, at the sites, but you will have to pay for it. The manager don't want anyone on his Wi-Fi, because Suddenlink will cut your account off if you download movies etc... We will not stay here again, dogs run loose, including the owners dogs, and the managers dog will bite you if you try to approach their door, not a good way to welcome people at all. - Mr Zorg
