1 Park near Point, Texas
Oct 2015 - $1.00
We chose Lake Tawakoni as the second TT park we stayed at and to take a break from sightseeing and just relax. To say the park is out of the way is an understatement, but that was what we were looking for. Upon arrival, we checked in, got our information and were told to select our own site. We started in one loop, but then decided to head toward one of the lakefront loops. We were told the other lakefront loop was mostly full and that is where the annual units are. Driving through the loop, we found many of the sites were unavailable, signaled by a plastic bag on the utility pole. We found a site, but going into the loop to the right wasn't the correct direction, so my husband had to exit the loop, turn around and come back in going to the left.
We loved our site, it was longer than we needed and very wide. We were right on the lake, so we had room and clear skies to put the satellite out, while still having trees above us. The site looked like it was asphalt at one time, but it hadn't been maintained. The hookups are 30 amp with water and sewer. During our stay we had to reset the breaker and all seemed well, but we had to take our RV for some work and return to the park. When we disconnected the electric our connector had plastic from the outlet melted on it. The power had been working, but we reported it on our way out and it was replaced when we returned. To be safe we purchased a new 50-30 amp plug. We mentioned it to the staff a couple of times, but ours hints for reimbursement were ignored.
Most of the sites, not along the lakes edge, have heavy enough tree cover to prevent satellite use, but there are ones that satellite will work.
There are two pools and a hot tub, along with two community buildings, one for adults only. The pools closed the day after we arrived,but they both looked clean and in relatively good condition.
We ended up staying 8 nights, extended from our original plan of 5. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. - Uno Mas

The rate reflects TT membership. There is only 30amp service. Some of the sites don't have sewer but they are rare. There is a dump station on site. The roads up to the park and in the park are very bad. I think that is to promote the 5mph speed limit (haha). They did work on the roads one day and I don't know if they are going to continue filling in holes in the rest of the park. There are a majority of sites that have nice shade which was great only being able to use one A/C and triple digit temps. They could do some more to clean up the place. Many spider webs around the buildings. We had quite a few attach to our trailer the 9 days we were here. Also there was a multitude of gnats which were very irritating getting in and out of the unit and cars. There is nothing in the area to do unless you utilize the Lake. The lake level was up which was really nice compared to lake levels in Texas in previous years. I'm not sure that we would be back due to the bugs unless we were just going to hang out. There are several yearly people here but not a large percentage compared to many other TT campgrounds. Our site was relatively level, not "too" close to the next guy and very long. We could get satellite reception for Direct and ATT had very good cell reception. - krisbw

There are some nice lakeside spots at this campground but be aware that the FHU sites in the best lakeside area, section C, are mostly given over to seasonals and annuals. There are, though, a few lakeside sites for those who are okay with water/electric only sites. There are plenty of nice shady FHU sites available in other sections of the campground. I think "section H," in particular, has some nice sites. Those with boats to put in the marina will want to check out "section I" which is nearby. The campground boasts both a nice Family Activity Center with its own pool, small basketball court, and mini-golf and an Adult Activity Center with it's own pool. Our Verizon had a couple of usable bars of 4G and I was able to get 2 of the 3 Dish Network satellites which gave us most of our TV channels, although not all in HD. There are no 50 amp electrical sites in the facility but there are plenty of FHU sites. Thousand Trails is notorious for bad roads and this place is no exception. In this case, it starts before you arrive as County Road 1470 into the campground is just as bad as any of the roads in it. We especially enjoyed the beautiful sunsets over the lake. This Thousand Trails is a reasonably short drive from both I30 and I20 - about an hour east of Dallas. - nazpaz
