1 Park near Point, Texas
Nov 2015 - $1.00
As seems to be the case with many Thousand Trails parks, this park appeared that it had a lot going for it when it was built, but maintenance, particularly of the road surfaces, has been lacking. Check in was easy, we were told to select our own site, and we chose one in section H, near the ranger station. The site was nice, reasonable distance from neighbors, ok surface to the site (may have been asphalt at one time, now mostly gravel). On the second morning, we were watching the water rise in the sites on the road across from us, and saw the rangers coming through to ask us to move as the power would be shut down in section H (and I). Many "permanent" looking RVs were needing to move also. We moved to a site in C - after trying to get into a couple in A where the narrowness of the road and the site, and the instability of the surfaces just off the road, combined to make it very difficult to get our 43' motorhome backed in. The water continued to rise, so two days later, we moved to a site on the main road in A - a much better location.

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
