3 Parks near Terrell, Texas
May 2016 - $35.00
Very nice campground, if only it was a bit further away from I-20. Road noise is a definite issue with this campground, but what full hookup campground within a decent distance of the metroplex is quiet? If you're going mainly to the southeast side of the metroplex (or even downtown Dallas), it would be hard to beat the location. Long wheelbase rigs do not come south on 429 to the campground (potential for hanging up on the railroad crossing at 80 and 429). A rather bumpy asphalt entry road (probably due to the construction of another 50 or so sites) with "sort of" two lane gravel access roads (trees convert some of these to single lane for taller rigs). Mix of pullthrus and backins surrounded by grass with trees at most sites providing shade opportunities while not generally presenting problems with satellite access. Sites are a mix of various sizes of gravel and are generally pretty level. Edges can be very soft after rain so ruts are not uncommon when a rig gets too close to the edge. Those we saw created were quickly filled in by the staff. Lots of grassy areas and woodlands surrounding the campsite area along with a relatively large catch and release pond. Power ok (even under load), water ok, sewer ok. Wifi was hit or miss, mostly miss. Both Verizon and Tmobile had decent signal strength and ok to adequate speed. Aluminum can and plastic recycling on site. OK bike riding around the campground, but no direct access to good riding outside the campground. We will stay here again when in the area. - SeaLandSkyPhoto

Most sites are pull thru. Fish and release lake. Sites are gravel with strips of grass between sites. Fairly level. Easy in and out. Shade trees are trimmed and don't hit top of RV's. Great cookies and dog biscuits when you check in. Staff is helpful and friendly. Two nurses live in the park and the owner has emergency medical training and equipment (unfortunately, I needed their help). WiFi reliability and speed is typical. 30 free Satellite TV channels. Free book and DVD library. Staff came to our rescue on two different occasions. Great people and great place to stay. - Bill and Pat

The one down side of this park is that it is so close to I-20 you cannot avoid hearing the screaming tires as the semis go down the highway. But, even that does not dampen my enthusiasm for this RV Park in Terrell, Texas. The park is so well run and the people are so helpful, friendly, supportive and understanding, going above and beyond the expected. Our gravel site was open and included a picnic table.
We were there for 9 months in 2014 and 2015 for work (we paid a monthly rate plus electric).
In January 2015, after leaving the coach for Christmas back home, we returned to find there was no power to the coach anywhere. We discovered that a lightning strike had fried several components throughout the RV and even the microwave oven. The camp workers helped us negotiate replacements and even went so far as to go to town to get new house batteries on spec and installed them ( we repaid them later). This prevented more possible damage from the cold - with batteries we could run the heaters and keep the cold at bay.
Thanks to all who work there and especially the owners who were lovely people as well. - DC_Charles
Sep 2014 - $30.00
Only reason we stayed here is that the park closest to the repair facility was full and the others were very expensive for a week's stay. Awful dusty road to enter my red SUV became battleship grey. Almost impossible to get someone to answer the phone. Had to put payment in a box no onsite manager. Electricity was iffy 50 amp and my AC would barley run if anything else was turned on. Don't bother with this place if at all possible. - Walking thunder
Oct 2013 - $18.00
This park was convenient for us and the staff was helpful. The sites are small, no picnic tables but sufficient. It was pouring when we arrived so we sat in the street until the rain let up and we could back into a site. They re-graded the road the very next day. The laundry and bath are not real modern but very clean. The staff was in cleaning every day. They even sanitized the washers regularly. This campground has limitations, but the staff is working hard to upgrade and keep it in good condition. - streamerstoo
Oct 2011 - $20.00
We stayed here as an overnight stop off I-40. Its OK for a quick stopover. No cable TV, but the 50 amp was good. Gravel entrance road and interior roads. The sites are small and only 36 paved feet long. Our 42 ft fifth wheel hung over both ends but we did get in. Nice host, but a lot of train noise. Most all guests were permanent. Probably wouldn't stay here again. Its located off hwy 80 about a mile west of town. - yachtjockey
Jul 2010 - $20.00
This park is located off of I-20 at the next interchange west of where US 80 and I-20 merge. For one overnight stop, it's okay. What is sad here is that the campground is well designed, with level gravel pads lined by concrete walkways. Hookups are perfect. Office is nice. In otherwords, great infrastructure. The sad news is that grass is overgrown on the walkways and in the gravel, most sites are "permanent" residents, and I never saw the like of dog poo in my life. We could only walk on the roadway or overgrown sidewalks to avoid it. Yuk! Close to I-20, so road noise would be a problem if we had not used the AC. The only bathroom and shower were disgusting. Toilet probably had not been cleaned in over a week, and the shower was nearly as bad. Owner was friendly, but obviously not keeping the CG maintained. Time on the mower, string trimmer, and bathroom sponge were needed. We would not camp here again. - The Happy Traveler
