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. We camped at Flat Creek Farms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The new Waco Mammoth National Monument is absolutely fascinating. We rate it a Don't Miss.
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.

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. We camped at Flat Creek Farms RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

If you are visiting Waco for business, this park is for you: it is perfectly located within a 5 minute drive from Downtown. A wonderful place to relax and watch the sunset.
This is quite possibly the best campground I've ever stayed at! It is very clean and well kept. While there are no playgrounds, there is plenty to do. It is on a huge farm with hundreds of gorgeous acreage to ride bikes around, walk, etc. There is a beautiful creek that you can swim and fish in. There are two pond/lakes to swim and fish in. There are sheep and sheep dogs! There is also a beautiful building that holds the office, bathroom, showers, and a place to cook and eat for large parties. There is a fire pit there and a big front porch with huge comfortable rocking chairs. You really feel very at home here. I can't say enough good things about it. The ONLY issue I noticed were some residents that had some sort of domestic dispute which had to be settled with a police officer. I hate to even say that because it puts a bad light on this park. But I believe in completely honest reviews. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Flat Creek Farms RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
We have mixed feelings about this little park. Easy access from IH-35 just to the east. The first impressions were good. Big area, beautiful rock entry gate, lots of green grass and new trees and shrubs. Sites are packed gravel, nice and wide, easy in and out. Very quiet no highway noise. CONS: No one on sight to check you in, just a sign with a "for information call #." We left payment in drop box after picking a site. Most folks here were long term workers in the area. There were a couple FEMA trailers with the AC's running, but no one around. No pool, no Wi-FI, no cable TV and weak cell service for AT&T. There are NO street lights or lighting around the campground. After dark, you need a flashlight to walk around. Flat Creek will flood so be careful if flash flooding is forecasted. We came back from dinner with friends to find the main gate closed and we had been not give a code. The info line was answered and we got in with out a problem. Lots of potential for this little gem, but the owners need to step up and be on site. Too expensive for what you get. Doubtful we will return.

This is a charming little park. It is easy access, level, concrete sites with what appears to be new equipment. The check-in procedure is unusual, but was not a problem. There are a lot of long-term residents. They were all friendly and helpful in directing us to a lake for dog swimming. Avoid the Creek, we were told it is very snaky. It is worth the price, a very quiet, perfectly adequate park. We would stay here again. We camped at Flat Creek Farms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a strange little campground. It has only been opened up for 6 months. It is in excellent maintenance and the person running this campground will bend over backwards to help you in all ways. It is hard to describe in that this is not a typcial campground. It is very clean and has good restrooms. Additionally it has free laundry machines for your use. Additionally there is a little house on site which is always open and has rocking chairs on the porch. You can use the house and it has 3 sitting areas and another 2 bathrooms in it. There is a large herd of sheep guarded by 2 big dogs right next to the campground and you can go in and see the sheep or wonder out to the several lakes. There are peacocks and other birds kept near the house in pens which are interesting to watch. There a number of antique trucks and cars you can wonder around and look at also. The campground is settled between a large corn field and a creek. It feels like you are in the middle of farm country but you are only 5-10 minutes from all restaurants and shopping. We stayed here 3 days because our truck was broken down and to help us out the owner just lent us his car. There are a number of longer term residents here who keep there area spotless and are very friendly. It is very difficult to see the sign for the park and you can easily miss it. It is a gated campground and the gate is set up I think to close when it gets dark. We camped at Flat Creek Farms RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
