This park is very quiet and peaceful. Its a good place to go for rest away from the hustle and bustle of life. Beautiful scenery. Not a lot to do here so this is why I say an eight. It would be nice if there were potluck gathering among tenants for some people interactions. The staff was very friendly and the park is pet friendly. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Plantation Place RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nothing really to do here. It is a gravel campsite with hook-ups and a little laundry facility. Both are kept clean but there is nothing else to this park. I was there for five weeks and never met a staff person, but did speak to them on the phone and they were very helpful. It's a great place to stay if you are in the are for other things, but the dust and lack of shade left something to be desired. I'm glad that I was here in the winter months, as it would be unbearable in the Texas summer heat. The nightly rate listed of $26 is based on the weekly rate of $185. We camped at Plantation Place RV Park in a Motorhome.

We are staying here for a week while visiting family and having work done on the RV, and absolutely love it. Very clean and quiet. The management has been nothing but helpful while we have had a mechanic out working on our RV. Lots to do in the area with Downtown Dallas just down I-30 a few miles. Will definitely be back when we visit family again. We camped at Plantation Place RV Park in a Motorhome.

Roads to get to this park are terrible which is why I only rated as a 5 and not "big rig" friendly. There were so may bumps, trees, and narrow roads that things in our rig that aren't normally affected by bad roads were flying around opening drawers and doors (most roads in Alaska were better than these). Once in the park, the sites were easy to get into and services all worked great. The pond (not really a lake) was nice and lots of grass for the pups. Some folks did not pick up after their pets which makes it bad for all of us animal lovers. There is no on-site management which may be why folks were negligent. Overall, nice little park with no amenities except a laundry which we did not use. There are no rest rooms or showers but apparently I have to state "don't know" to submit this review. Wouldn't be bad for a short stay except for getting in and out of the area. We camped at Plantation Place RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The first time I called this park I got the last spot for the week. I realized when I stayed here why the park was so full, it was because of it's location! I was able to get to downtown Dallas in 18 minutes. I know because I timed it. The previous reviewer described this park as a "parking lot". This campground is far from a parking lot, I know because I have stayed at parking lot type RV parks which are close to highways, construction zones or railroads. The park is very quiet and secure which is the way I like it. The park is also very clean with no trash or junk piles. The sites themselves are very level with ample room between the sites. There is plenty of grass between the sites, and the sites are mowed on a regular basis. The WiFi and cable TV(which has 75 channels) is free, and is better than most 5 star hotels I have stayed at. The previous reviewer stated that it can get dusty. This problem can be avoided if you drive the speed limit which is posted. Each site has all the amenities (20,30,50 amp,water,city sewer, and instant phone if necessary). Their laundry is extremely clean with 3 washers and 3 dryers which are $1.00 each load. The secluded location in an upscale neighborhood gives this park a camping atmosphere, but within minutes of all the restaurants and other action. i believe the sport/pet run area covers about 15-20 acres. Dallas has good RV parks and I found one in Plantation Place just a short drive east of Downtown Dallas. We camped at Plantation Place RV Park in a Motorhome.

If you are looking for a place to park for a couple of days/nights, then this is sufficient. This is a "parking lot" for people passing through town. There is gravel and white chalky dust everywhere. There is a laundry, period. Nothing else. There is an office, but no one is ever in it if you need anything. If you call the number an answering machine usually picks up, and they call you back. You walk out your front door and your next door neighbor's sewer and electrical is right there in front of you. They let people park all kinds of trailers and awful old pickups at the back of the lot. You have no patio area to sit out on and there are weeds everywhere. No shade at all and with the 106 degree temps while we were there, it worked our air conditioners to their limit, having no shade and only gravel and dirt to sit on. This is a good place if you are in a pinch, otherwise, just keep on going down the road. The only thing I can say good is that the rates are very reasonable.

We had heard how difficult it was to find vacancy at this campground, and the perception was because it was so nice. Unfortunately, perception did not come close to reality. The majority of this campground is occupied by "full-timers", with many of them leaving for work in the morning and returning from work in the evening. There is very little grass, but lots of white chalky rock that makes up this "parking lot" of a campground. The main plantation house, off limits to campers, is a significant distance from the sites, and is separated from the campsites by a wall. There is a lone swing-set frame rusting in the distance; remnants of another set and some other junk are in a trash pile at the back of the property. There is literally no other infrastructure (except for plumbing/electrical, and a couple of picnic tables). There is a huge field, but not much else for the kids to do. Riding bikes in the rocky campground is not advisable, but the field was mowed and stickers were at a minimum. The small lake had a couple of picnic tables nearby, so perhaps on a cooler day it is not too bad a place to eat or drop a rod in the water. But despite reports online about shady spots or nice fishing spots, there are no shade trees anywhere here...during the summer this is a pretty hot, dusty place with very little to do. Dallas really needs a good campground. If you're stopping just for the night, this is sufficient. If you're staying a few days, find something down the road...it can't be much worse. Also, be warned: access from Barnes Bridge Road should only be from the east. There is a load zoned bridge to the west, as well as very low hanging trees over the road. The trees are getting low to the east as well, but at least no bridge issue. If only some of those trees were shading the campsites. We camped at Plantation Place RV Park in a Motorhome.

A bit unique. Stayed three nights and never encountered any staff person. Check in is self service at entrance (Must have a reservation). No restrooms or showers available. OK laundry. Phone available for use with unrestricted in-country long distance. Sites are gravel and mostly pretty level. Space a bit tight but not cramped. Good length for pull thru sites. Easy getting in/out of park and sites. Super area for dog walking. Quiet country setting. Rate shown is for Good Sam. On a future visit this wouldn't be my first choice but I wouldn't feel bad if this was what was available. We camped at Plantation Place RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent free Wi-Fi ...both in speed and reliability. Nothing else to brag about. Good utilities although hookups are at rear of site so can complicate effectively using the pull-through with a toad behind a MH unless you have sewer extensions. Caliche/gravel streets & pads w/nice grass between. Nothing fancy ...nothing major to complain about. We would return if we need to visit in the area.

As others have mentioned, check in happens at a kiosk. No life forms are involved. No restrooms or showers. Washers/dryers are on site. We never saw a park representative for the entire week we camped here. No signage from I-30 or other access roadways. Good location if you need to be close to Dallas. Most residents are permanent. Dusty and gravel surface. But, Wi-Fi and CATV worked great!! We camped at Plantation Place RV Park in a Motorhome.

Met our needs well while visiting family in Dallas. Our site overlooked a small pond with a wading bird or two at dawn and sunset, nice touch. Many long term campers but sites were clean and neat. Good 50 amp power, sewer and water. Verizon phone and air card worked well. Some sites are a little narrow, but most would fit our 40' rig and toad just fine, and our 4 slides. Quiet. No shade so was hot outside in low 90s weather. Would stay again. We camped at Plantation Place RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pulled in here just before a major storm hit. Wet and muddy. Very good cable and Wi-Fi. No restrooms so must be self contained. Road in is rough. Many permanent residents. Probably the best deal if you want to be close to Dallas. We needed to get off the road due to the weather. Friendly staff. We camped at Plantation Place RV Park in a Motorhome.

It's OK for overnight, or if you have business or family in the area. It's gravel, some what worn; looks like some sites flood in the rain. Has mostly permanent campers. No shade: summer must be a joy. Has easy access from I-30; the main road in, gets narrow and rough. Other's have covered the check in; which worked fine. Not many other choices are as convenient if you need to be in the area. We camped at Plantation Place RV Park in a Motorhome.

One of the closest RV parks to Dallas. No office, only a sign-in kiosk. Sites are level gravel. Some permanent residents but park was quiet and well maintained. We camped at Plantation Place RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very lovely owner who is sweet and accommodating. Park is convenient to Dallas and Rockwall. Close to Lake Ray Hubbard. People there are friendly, and other RVer's look out for one another. The electric never goes out during storms. Clean laundry facility. Easy check in and out. We camped at Plantation Place RV Park in a Motorhome.
