I wonder about the other reviews. We called for reservations and was told, "just come in" . Not too professional. when we got there, the roads were very rutty and poor. We looked at what was there camper wise and it looked sad. We did not stay. From the look we got this place is overrated. - waxhands

Front desk lady was very polite. Clean restrooms, showers, laundry area, and even a kitchen area next to the rec room (you MIGHT get Wi-Fi in the rec room). Cable not available at the time we were there. There were probably less than a dozen people camping there when we were there; most of those appeared to be 'living' there. Originally, this RV park was built to house construction crew for the new power plant. Now that the power plant is established, the park is open to the public. It's next to a train track and usually the trains quit running before midnight. They had not maintained the grounds, but on the day that we left, they were mowing the tall grass/weeds - which made it look a lot better. It served our purpose for staying in Riesel and visiting family. Alert - staying during a rainy season is not a good idea; your coach WILL sink in the mud. - Love To RV

This campground was put in for construction workers building a nearby power plant and is geared toward long-term renters. Not much to look at but the sites are long and access is easy to Hwy 6. Nights were quiet. If you are in the area and don't want to drive to Waco this makes a good stopover spot. The clubhouse is decent and guests may use the kitchen. Showers are private bathroom style and clean but very basic. Expensive nightly rate for what you get but worth it to us for the convenience. - RetiredAtLast

We called the owners wife to inquire about occupancy after issues with another park in Waco. She was very accommodating and told us we could check in that day. We drove to the park and chose a back in spot close to the river, plenty of shade and hookups worked well. There was a weather issue a few weeks later, which was no fault of the park. We sustained minor damage and moved to a pull in spot. The owners gave us half off of our rent for the inconvenience of having to move. This was not expected , but greatly appreciated. This park is not new, but we had no issues driving on the road by the pool to our pull in spot. The grass was not level, but setting up a few boards both under the leveling jack and the mat outside our door did the trick. The pool is clean and was welcoming in the hot spring heat. Unlike some other parks, this one truly cares about its customers. Any issues we had would be directed to the owners and they were dealt with promptly. We are planning on going back in September for another 6 weeks! - awh825

Other than the fact that they had 50 amp service, sewer and water and a pool (which we didn't use) I really disliked this park. From the moment we pulled in I thought about leaving. We had to call a number to find someone to find us a site. I had called in advance. The owner was very pleasant and said her husband should be around somewhere. He was checking someone else in at the moment. Sure enough he came and asked if we could back our rig up. I told him his wife said we could have a pull through, then he said there was one left. We had to drive down around the pool, and someone else had done that and nearly took out their pool pump which was at the edge of the road. There were huge ruts we were trying to avoid, and boards on the other side of the road. When we got to the spot it was quite a bit uphill, but then a narrow, fairly level pad, long enough for us to leave our truck hooked up. HOWEVER, the pad was so narrow that we had to get out an extra step to get up our steps, it was quite a dropoff into grass that needed mowing. There were also poop land mines from dogs that hadn't been picked up. The services worked well. Someone was playing loud music till we fell asleep, then at 2:20 am a very LOUD train woke me up. The trains started up again around 5 am. From the well written description about this campsite, all of which appears to be true, just left out a lot, I was expecting a brand new campground. This one is rough around the edges. The owner's husband told us "see that building over there, there's a gold slot to put your money in". I had asked the owner about a discount for military or aarp or anything, and was told she would give me the 10% off, but I didn't expect to have to put cash in a slot. I thought $30 less the $3 was way overpriced for this park. Also, there is a pipeline buried just feet from the campers, and there was some animal (dog, coyote?) howling in the night. - Ginny H

Letting too many full timers stay and they are ruining the RV parks by being unkept, trashy, unruly and management seems to do nothing. - H Russell

The interior roads need attention. The site was gravel. No picnic table or fire ring. Full hookups worked fine. The cable TV and WiFi were excellent. The laundry room had 4 dryers and 4 washers. The room was clean and all but one dryer worked fine. The pool looked nice but was closed because we were here off season. There was a large dog run area that was nice to have. - Melodycthomas

Only 1 bathroom for men and 1 for women. Dryers in laundry did not dry clothes, may need checked out. Long term campers do not keep dogs on leashes. Need more lighting in campground. - Soup

We had a confirmed site reserved and the day of the arrival, they moved us almost on the road. That meant someone else wanted our site and they gave it to them. Very poor business practice. Our site was a pull through, but with a rig our size, it is not good to do that since it was on the end in a curve of the road. Had to do some major jostling to get in in position. No sewer cap. Luckily we have pads to put under the levelers or we we would have pushed through the two inches of gravel into the mud. Won't stay here again. - Mleeder

Our stay at Flat Creek Farm was by happenstance. All our first choice campgrounds, which were COE on Lake Waco, were closed due to flooding. We were able to snag a few nights at Flat Creek Farm but not as many as we wanted. The campgrounds that were not closed due to flooding were booked pretty solid from taking in all us displaced campers.
Power was excellent, water pressure good, Verizon service was strong and the campground WiFi was so-so. Even with a WiFi booster it was tough to stay connected. A couple of times I had to give up and switch to my jetpack to complete what I was doing.
Previous posts talk about the odd parking arrangements. We had one of these and it had the nose of our 5th wheel really close to the nose of our neighbor's 5th wheel. Luckily our neighbor was on a monthly plan and only there on weekend days, so we only saw them on the day of our arrival.
Landscaping is well done and cared for. Sites are gravel and level with grassy space between neighbors on the camper door side. No fire pit, no grill and no table. And they are very protective of their grass, no mats are allowed. Really nothing is allowed on the grass.
The office was not staffed the entire time of our three day stay. They were good at responding to the over-the-web registration and when I called the phone number I was given on my check-in email, they answered promptly.
Not as affordable as a COE campground but very nice. I would stay here again if lower cost options are not available. - jperry29

The park is mostly permanent resident, but to us that's not a problem if it's clean and this one is. The only downgrade is you have to do reservations via internet, never saw the owners or hosts, but no problems. Kind of odd setup with side by side pull this, but they generally work OK. Overall nice park. Moving to this area so probably will stay here again. - 7 on the road

The on site manager is very laid back & quirky. Very helpful & has so much information about the area. Our site was a back in FHU on concrete. There's no numbers on the sites. Wide & long with a parking area for our truck. A path to our on site metal picnic table with seating for 4 & grill. WiFi was in & out, get your own cable box, shaded. But you hear the road noise from the interstate. There's permanent residents here but everything was clean. Great location to all the sites in town,shopping & restaurants. - jcpjane

Everything is in order at North Crest RV. When you arrive the owner is pleasant and helps find a site which meets your needs. In our case we asked for good satellite reception. This CG is almost entirely tree covered which creates a nice environment. Nevertheless the owner found a spot where the satellite worked fine. The park is conveniently located on I-35 service road which creates the only problem here - road noise. We enjoyed our stay and will stay here again the next time. - joebasiglio

This RV park is right on IH35 convenient to McClane, the silos etc. yes, you have road noise but with running Ac it died down at night. The park has the NICEST park host I've ever dealt with! You won't be disappointed - but come in with an open mind. We drove in and out but after reading reviews decided to give it a shot. I am so glad we did. What a nice park and host. Oh by the way -there is only ONE Ft camper who happens to work at the park. So other reviews are not correct. We talked a long time with him about the reviews. Don't be quick to judge. He is working hard on this park. I would definitely come back. The $42 for big slabs that is tax includes and wifi. Also have showers and laundry room. - Pdcsjc

Stayed here while working an event in October the last few years. Lots of 50,30,20 amp FHU sites, some just water & elec. All utilities work great. Being right in Waco: lots of OTA TV. It's wide open so satellite reception also good. Cell and data service is good, but can slow considerably during events, so be prepared for that! Great RV site while attending an event. - dmkimm

We didn't actually stay here. We wanted to but when we arrived we approached the office and were advised that they did not allow the general public to camp here. Their RV facilities are purely for events that are being held in the complex. Thought we had better make this observation so that no one else turns up expecting to just camp at any time. - KiwiRVer

We like to stay at fairgrounds because there is lots of room to move around in a big rig towing a big trailer plus fairgrounds don't have lots of amenities that we don't use and don't pay for. This was a great fairgrounds but "checking in" was ridiculous, clearly the left hand had no idea what the right hand was doing. There were many pull thrus on level hard asphalt and/or dirt. Many Back in against fences. Most sites were water and varied electric (30 or 50 amp). Also there are vast areas to walk a dog. We would stay here again. There is a lot to do in the Waco area and this is a good location to do them from. - tpw0607

Small park on the edge of Lake Waco. There is some construction making entry a little difficult but should be over soon. Good signage. Park is older, a little neglected. Grass hadn't been cut in a long time, was over 2 feet high most places, playground overgrown as were a couple of sites. Some sites not level, but ours was ok. Electric was steady, water pressure good. Our site hadn't been cleaned in a while, ashes in pit, trash around. Biggest complaint was loose dogs from what appear to be workers and longer term guests. When we mentioned to the gate attendant that one dog would not stay out of our campsite, they just shrugged and mumbled. 2 trailers with 4 dogs, dogs were constantly without leashes and allowed to bark and run. We probably would not stay here again because of the loose dogs. It is a convenient park to stay in for visiting the Waco area. - Fixn2gocamp

We have found a really nice park in Waco Texas, Midway Park RV Park on Lake Waco. It is a Corps of Engineers park with 50amp full hookups. Both of our GPS devices brought us right to the park. We reserved and paid in advance so check-in at the kiosk was easy. The roads and site are gravel and big rig friendly. There is a lot of room between sites, which we like. We had a pull-thru and it was long enough for both vehicles. Hookups were fairly convenient. We had a good line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. Not all sites would be able to get satellite reception so be careful if that is important to you. Verizon 4g and cellphone signal strength was pretty good. There was no free park wifi. The best part of the park though had to be the price. Since it is a COE park our National Parks Senior Pass got us 50% off making the week less than $100. We would not hesitate to stay here again as we didn't realize how big Waco was with lots of things to see and do, plus you can't beat the price. We just want to visit when it isn't so dang hot. - Bob & Jo

This is a new park and the owners are working hard to make it great. The WiFi is blazing fast when it is working. There are a few bugs but I am sure they will work it out. The sites are not level enough for a motor home and mine barely leveled. There was some fresh concrete sites and maybe this will solve the leveling problem. Finally the FREE BREAKFAST was incredible the food and service was outstanding. I hope to see this feature more places in the future. I would absolutely stay here again. - Beaver 43

If you visit Waco stay here. While the Wifi is a little suspect they are improving it. But--be sure to take advantage of the breakfast, very very good. Pool is kid friendly. - Bill Barnes

We literally bought our first RV and then drove it straight here for the month so we could spend time moving in and getting used to how everything worked on the trailer, in preparation for full time travel. The day before we picked up the trailer, I called 9 parks around the Dallas area and they were all booked. My 10th call was to I-35 RV Park and I was very relieved when they said I didn't need a reservation because "they are never full." Whew! Crisis averted.
The park was very large (200 spots) and had a mix a people living there full time, staying for a while, and over-nighters. All sites are FHU. One of the full time residents is an RV technician who will make "house calls." I had to use him for a water pump issue I couldn't figure out. He was courteous and fair on pricing (<$70 for 1 hour labor & $11 part).
There is small fenced dog area, but we took our dog into the massive back patch of land and let him run off-leash (responsibly, of course!) Breakfast from 7-9am for a donation. Pool was nice. You can receive packages in the mail room (include your lot #). 2 Laundry rooms on-site. They have partial shade, full shade, covered, and no shade spots; pull-throughs and back-ins.
If you stay the month, you will pay $0.14/kWh for electric and you will need to throw down a deposit; $150 for 50amp. We used $136 for the month of July with 1 air conditioner. Significant Highway noise if you are in the front half of the park. Friendly staff and neighbors. No complaints for our month long stay. - Unknown_Normal

The front gate couple were very helpful. This park has a beautiful setting. On the lake, grills, fire pits, covered tables and asphalt pads. The asphalt pads have grass growing in the cracks. This destroys the asphalt. Our site was dirty, lots of small trash items in the grass, gravel on the asphalt pad (they rake the gravel around the tables onto the pad), and muddy pad when it rained. The exit road has deep pot holes. The restrooms were broken (no water in one stall, doors would not close because the hinges needed tightening) and no soap.
The grass was growing over the sidewalks and pads. Dumpster lids were open and attracted flies. Because of the location and price we would stay here again. This could be so much nicer with a little attention to detail. - Beas

We stayed here for one week in a fifth wheel, enjoyed our stay. The sites are well separated and private although there are few trees, mostly grassy areas. The restrooms are a fair distance from the sites, but we did not use them. The dump site is difficult to use as the connections are on a raised concrete platform, difficult to use if you are using a tote. - estegw

Good park, out of the way and right on the Lake Waco. No sewer hookups and a so so dump station, needs help! Lots of wild life, as we witnessed Foxes, Skunks, Lots of Deer. Weekends are packed. Gate Hosts watch the park like a hawk. I have stayed here several times before and will go back. Good place to relax and have fun. - Gearitis

Wonderful city operated COE park and RV campground. Paved roads with level paved back in sites with W & E. Lots of scattered large trees and grass between shaded or open sites and a lake with fishing. Good TV antenna signal. 4 bar Verizon cell and 4G signal. No Wi-Fi at sites. Good security and office staff friendly and helpful. Park clean and well maintained Airport a mile away and for general aviation so no airplane noise. 7 miles to downtown. Discount park entry fee for seniors. Will stay there again. - Pepper Dan

Very nice park on Waco Lake, conveniently located close to downtown Waco and Magnolia Silos! Clean park and facilities, friendly staff. Sites are very spacious, not too close to your neighbor. A good stopping point for us from San Antonio area. We will be back. - Mary Scott

Very nice Corp park that has nice back ins and SOME pull throughs that are of the half circle design common with some state, national, and Corp parks. Electric pedestal and hose bib placed well in our pull through site. No sewer drop. Very nice concrete steps and patio area down to the covered concrete picnic area with grill and fire ring provided. This area overlooked the lake and the western sky and was clean and neat. The only negative is the extremely tight gate entrance and exit with gatehouse in the middle. Big rigs and class A's be aware when moving through this. Take your time and watch your mirrors. To sum up, very good value and very nice well maintained COE park with six deer grazing by exit and paid us no mind when we left.
Do not get nervous if YOUR gps says you should be at park entrance but obviously are not. Keep going and you will see Airport Park Beach Road. DO NOT turn left here but proceed to the NEXT left. This is the entrance to the park and leads right to the gate house. - xarmoreddriver
