Always enjoy staying here when we come to Waco/Baylor University. With a 36' HM and a tow dolly, we use Google Earth to pick a good site that allows us to pull through. The Reserve America\Recreation.gov web site descriptions are NOT always correct as to access, sewer hookups. You can always call the office for clarification if necessary.
The sites are great. Paved and level. Most have a covered picnic table. All have a fire ring & water. We chose a nice lake-side spot without trees since the weather was expected to be poor and we figured the satellite was going to be used (it was). A number of the sites are treed and that's a good thing in the Texas summer. Again, Google Earth is your friend.
The RV sites aren't close together so there's a modicum of privacy which is nice. Around dusk or sunrise is a good time to go for a long walk and see the wildlife around the area. Deer are all over the place. Lots of roadrunners and the usual collection of other Texas critters as well.
All-in-all a great COE operation. - GTN_and_Catz

The park is situated on Waco Lake. Our site, #63, backed right up to the water and the showers were right across the road. It was beautiful, although it probably would have been pretty hot in the summer. A lot of the other sites had a lot more trees than this one, but since it wasn't hot out we loved the site. The site had a grill, a fire ring and a covered picnic table. We drove around the park just at dusk and saw lots of deer and roadrunners. We would definitely camp here again! - Robert Dimmick

We stayed here in a 40' motorhome. Park was easy to get around in; wide asphalt roads and sites. We had site 010 on the lake (Lake Waco). Ours was 50A FHU, but only about 25% of all of the sites in this campground have a sewer connection so be sure to check your particular site first if you need that extra utility. Electric and water were both strong; Our Millenicom WIFI internet signal was 4G and our Verizon cell was 4 bars strong. We were about 10 minutes from all restaurants and grocery activities. Overall, a nice park and we would stay here again if in the area. - Tiffinatic

Beautiful, immaculately maintained rural campground near Waco, Texas. Located in huge fields on a stream that provides a great breeze on hot days and some swimmin' holes. VERY quiet in the evenings except as noted below. SUPER nice hostess who was very helpful and friendly. Unfortunately the weekend host was not available when we tried to check in, making our Saturday check in difficult, but the hostess/manager returned our call after a couple of hours and got everything sorted out. Back in sites along the stream are beautiful and partly shaded - suitable for a longer stay and, in fact, most appeared to be taken by long termers. Why a 7? 1) Many of the sites are "shared" sites - 2 sets of hookups in a semi-level very dusty wide gravel space at each end of the site. Hookups "head to tail" but side by side so you're not lined up. We were quite close to our neighbor. 2) Our site was fairly near the entrance and after our neighbor pulled out it became a freeway - rather than driving down to the actual entrance people were driving through the vacant half of our site at literally all hours of the day and night, thus the noise I mentioned above. Final note: if you visit I recommend you not access the park from the south; there's a load rated bridge (21,000 lbs tandem axle) on Grieg Road. If you come in from the north on Grieg Road there's no issue. - Jeepman Texas

Good overnight stop in the Waco Area. Price reflects Passport America discount. Gravel sites seemed to be level throughout the park. Main road had some potholes that need attention. They had done a nice job in landscaping. Had a weak breaker on our site that was quickly fixed within an hour of reporting it. Would stay here again passing through. - simsfmly

One of its biggest perks: the grounds that surround this RV Park: open fields which are perfect for sunset photographs; the creek behind it, and the silence, only broken by the lovely calls of the wandering sheeps. The park is very clean all throughout. Two shower areas well lit and spacious, however guests have been smoking inside the bath area and when I wanted to use it, I had to open the window and door, and wait outside until the cigarette stench had left the building. I was not impressed with the laundry facility: though at first I found it welcoming, once I started using the washing machine I noticed it did not fill up with enough water. Another park guest was "helping" the machine with a 5-gallon bucket of water, lifting, and dumping the water inside. Then when it was time to use the dryer, I had to pay for two rounds in order to get an "almost dry" load of clothes. Other residents appear to be long-time residents, good folks working nearby: all fantastic people who help enjoy the experience of Flat Creek a whole lot more.
Downside: no shade, no trees. - Isolda M Quintero

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

Just to update everyone, the I-35 construction is complete and the park is now very easy on and off to the highway. Very friendly service, the owner escorts you to a site of your needs (if available) and is now taking credit cards. We wanted a long level pull thru with satellite access and got it. Clean park with gravel interior roads and sites. We stayed here a few years ago and the park is a favorite when traveling to and from the San Antonio area from the North or South. The breakfast during this time of the season is buffet, the full menu begins later in the year. The buffet is well worth a good tip to the cooks. Will stay here again. Price is based on 50 Amp pull thru site. - DaDoSA

The park is well cared for. Sites are gravel and some are shaded. The staff was very friendly. - MFTDoc

This was our first visit here, we were here with a small rally group. A previous review that stated "There is no natural shade anywhere" must have been somewhere else. We saw plenty of trees and shade, and requested a site with afternoon shade so we could gather the group there. We used one of their buildings one night. The free breakfast was great, with several selections from fruit to eggs & sausage to biscuits & gravy. Access to the park was complicated a bit by construction on the access roads on both sides of the highway but we had no trouble getting into or out of the park. We found on arrival that they do not accept credit cards (we saw/heard no mention of that in printed materials or in our pre-rally planning) but they do take personal checks and there is an ATM in the office area. We would stay here again. - AFChap

Our first stay was booked the same day as our stay. There were two pull thru sites that fit our 40', 50amp, with 4 slides. We selected site 29 sight unseen and we arrived the site was covered with low hanging trees completely covering the site. We went back to the office and requested another sight if possible. Renea, office worker, was kind enough to move us 2 sites up to 31 which was completely open. The sight was level and wide with a nice covered table area. We can hear traffic noise..but we have a nice site to live while visiting Waco, TX. The campground was neatly mowed and other than one camping site filled with weekend camper cluther that looks to be used by several individuals..the campground was very clean. - Antiquechild

This worked fine for us while traveling through TX. Our only complaint was few light branches drug on the roofline of our tall Alfa motorhome. It was nice and quiet till morning and we could hear distant road noise. No problem. We had full service hookups. - ks2spi

This park has six 50A FHU pull through sites near Highway 6 and the rest are 30A W/E back-in sites nestled in the woods. The pull through sites are well spaced and most are good for satellite. Highway noise calms at night. The wooded sites vary quite a bit from long level back-ins overlooking the lake to sites at the top of inclines. The park has few rules, which appeals to some. You might see 6 cars and 5 tents clustered around one site as we did during Spring Break. Families were having a great time. The grass was getting long which previous reviewers have noted as a problem. I saw a clean up crew come to each site after it was vacated to sweep and clean the pits. Big Rigs should stay in the pull thrus although some of the back-ins would be Big Rig suitable too. You can choose your site online. ATT & Verizon had strong signals. - Danno

Wonderful place to stay! Wonderful owner and place was very easy to find. Handy on and off to Interstate. Would definitely recommend and will definitely stay here again next time we are going through area or stopping in Waco to take in the sites. Great place! - FlySouth

This CG is clean with new picnic tables and grills. The roads and sites are gravel. The electric and sewer hookups were good but the water pressure was low. Our site was a covered concrete pad big enough for our 40. There was an additional fee for this site. There is lots of shade but NO amenities. The highway noise is loud and continuous. I can't say that this CG is big rig friendly. - Michael47

Throughout this year 2015 I've been in/out of Texas several times. When in Central Texas, I invariable go back to North Crest (and by the way, the name on this site is wrong: it is not North Crest Manor, it is North Crest RV Park). This place is so clean. The owner/manager is on top of things! Everyday we see him tidying up, making sure that everything is spotless. I am pleased with the laundry facilities. No problem with wi-fi and/or television. Both signals are good. The showers are super sanitized. It's a pleasure to return to this RV Park. Love the foliage, specially now in the summer! My RV does not get extra hot thanks to the tree canopies! - Isolda M Quintero

Park was hard to find and way off the beaten path. Most residents in the park look like they are permanent. Sites were gravel and unlevel. Pretty shoddy at the best. Only nice thing about the park was the manager. Probably wouldn't stay here again. - We3Brvn

We were very disappointed in the rv park. Most of the people staying at the park were living there full time. It was hard to find. The facilities and buildings were old. The sites were not level and not concrete. The pool was an above ground pool and was not maintained. - wrf1168

No shade available. No meeting room or activities. Pool was not available for use due to the cold weather. Gravel sites with good grass and table. Washers/Dryers in unheated building with door open. Would stay again, but not for long. - mcguyvered

This park is old and not a typical COE that I have visited over the years. Lots of shade by the Cedar scrub trees. Lots of bugs especially spiders. Webs are created by the minute. Great Lake views, some covered concrete picnic tables. Not maintained at all. Bathrooms are bug infested, hot, and they are pit toilets. Great place if you are going to boat and so use the day resources around the corner. Its an OK place for a couple days. Oh, and Electrical was pretty low voltage wise. We had campers next door and when their air conditioner came on and my air was on the voltage went to less than 108 volts. I can only image if there were any more campers on the same circuit. Will go back but will be well prepared with bug spray, brooms to knock down webs, plenty of candles, foggers, and a high pressure washer to wash the picnic tables, shelter, and concrete slab off before we use it. - Gearitis

This park definitely needs an updated review. This park is aways off the beaten trail but all roads are paved. This is an older park with lots of trees. I did not see one pad without shade. All parking spaces have concrete pads. We haul a 32' TT and the pull through was very accessible. The lady running the park was very friendly and helpful. I would guesstimate that 98% of this park's business is permanent campers.
The dog run are was very nice with benches under large shade trees. I will definetly mark this campground as a favorite stop.
One note of interest is payment is made by check or cash. Credit cards are not an option. - TunkPA74

This is a quiet RV park, out in the country. No city noises, no bright lights shining in that you don't want. Although the park is out in the country, it is still close enough to the city to be in town within 10 minutes. Owners are very friendly. Property is clean. Grass and trees everywhere. Level concrete pads to park your RV. There is a large black dog that likes to visit. She is very sweet and liked to hang around while we were outside. I would stay here again. Would have loved to stay longer to visit more of Waco but we had to get back home. - ELamb

This is an odd park and may not be for everyone. Situated well off the beaten path it has plenty of trees. Perhaps too many. Could be difficult to maneuver in places. The road in takes one through a rather rough area. Returning from town at night, which is a bit of a drive, we encountered some undesirable young folks obstructing the highway who had obviously been partying it up a lot. Park roads have some potholes. It rained a great deal while we were there and many of the sites on the lower area, which is where we were camped, were under water. Although the extent of this rainfall was unusual it was still clear that the sites on the lower area were prone to flooding. Sewer system must be inadequate, as it backed up during the rain storm. Not only were we unable to dump our tanks, but the back pressure filled them to the rim of the toilet. Nasty!!! Staff were very nice and helpful. Park rules seem to be rather lax. A large number of long term campers. We had the impression that had it not rained there might have been some noise. All that said, the pleasant rural atmosphere away from the highway is attractive. We are undecided about returning however. - oldtexascowboy

A Lake park with acceptable sites on a point out in the lake. Nothing special as far as we are concerned. A solid 6 on our scale.
Others may like the low cost or the proximity to the lake, but other than that it's just OK.
Bath Room (there was only one) was hot, old, and unpleasant. - Creativepart

The park is clean and well kept, although the restrooms left something to be desired. The park is far enough from the highway so there are no traffic noises, but there are cars driving through the park from the time it gets dark until about midnight. I am not sure if the gate is left open or why there is so much traffic, as the park is at the end of a long road. Also the park has no pet rules. While we were there one camper had 3 dogs and another had 4, and they barked from 6 AM until late evening. My overall rating would have been a 10 if not for the traffic and the dogs barking. We would and have recommended this park to friends. - oldtimers

Beautiful campground, nice level sites near the lake with hookups. The restrooms were a bit on the tacky side -- needed some updating and the toilet in the handicap restroom sprayed water all over the floor when it was flushed. Spent only one night, but would stay again. Gates are locked at 10 p.m. - charms51
