8 Parks near Waxahachie, Texas
Apr 2016 - $24.00
We stayed 3 nights. Sites are back ins and close. But they are cut out of trees. So little disturbances from neighbor. Spring 2016 much is closed due to flooding. Very nice facility. Many sites are short so add a couple feet to your unit for reservation. Many over the air local channels. Very nice park. - REO

We couldn't get in to the Eagle Ford loop which I heard was re paved. That loop was closed because of all the rain and flooding they had around Dallas this year. The loop we did get in, Lakeview Camping Area, was pretty well beat up. The asphalt road is falling apart as well as the campsites. The campsites are not very level and for longer rigs you have to make sure you get a site deep enough because most of the sites are pretty short. The bathrooms and shower area were not clean and need to be remodeled. This campground looks like it has been here many years and well used. It is very convient to visit Dallas and shopping close by in Cedar Hill, TX. Verizon cell phone and wifi worked good. - jhav

This is an adequate park. Nothing great, nothing terrible. It is "well-worn" with roads that are quite bumpy and sites that have a lot of slope front to back. Bathrooms were dated but fairly clean. Pay attention to the park map: for sites closer to FM1382, you can definitely hear the constant road noise. It's not awful, but it is constantly there. We had good cell service but no wifi; many, many channels by OTA antenna.
Cedar Hill shopping, restaurants, etc. are 10 mins away. Arlington is 15-20 mins away. - texasAUtiger

Restricted height clearance from overgrown trees. Bathrooms/showers need a complete remodel. No cable TV or high speed Internet access. TV reception fair, channels very limited.
Wireless signal strength issues. Many cluttered lots.
Sites need to reworked. Many old and dirty campers in various states of disrepair.
Trash dumpsters overflowing, smelly and unlit. Dark.
Covered dish events would be nice. A pool and clubhouses too.
Needs upgrades everywhere. - rvpro290

Location of this park is terrific, easy access to Dallas and the gentleman that checked us in was very polite. However, the filthy bathrooms ruined our visit. Smoky with cigarette butts in the sinks and ashtrays in toilet stalls. Showers had no hooks or bench, forcing us to dress right out in the bathroom. Cold & hot water faucets were switched around. Pull through sites had just enough room for RV, but trees needed trimming to allow for easier access. A vehicle parked by the bathroom made driving out of our site difficult. We would Not recommend this park. - Twilight

We stayed in the park for 2 and a half weeks. At first it was ok, however as the week passed, the night manager became rude and intolerable. The rules state that quiet time is 9pm to 8am. The night manager (who was usually intoxicated) would be yelling across the park or talking extremely loud knowing that people had to be up early the next morning for work. He also stuck his neighbor's water hose down his toilet to clean out his black water tank. Most of the people in the park are locals. The managers, Joe and Shari are very kind are doing the best they can. It's too bad their help lacks in customer service. - The Green Monster

I might only endorse the glowing reports already noted, but must say the additional fee (although clearly stated) is somewhat deceiving when looking at the actual cost, making the park a fair value. My only addition is that it is centrally located in the DFW megalopolis - very close to none of the attractions but not very far from any of them either. I got to almost everything in 20-30 minutes or less. - retiredfflarry

Beautiful city park. Huge sites with water and electric, farily level, a covered picnic table area and fire ring. We were the only campers in G loop during the week, by Saturday all sites were full. Some sites are open and in full sun, some sites are wooded, all are spacious. - Jeannehanes

This county park on Joe Pool Lake is quite large with many camping loops. The sites are fairly large with plenty of trees providing privacy between neighbors, and each site has a covered picnic area and fire ring. The interior roads were in good condition, but being heavily wooded it can be a little tricky driving a big rig through without scraping against tree branches. Our site was not level but with our wood blocks we were able to get completely leveled. There are plenty of heated bath/shower houses for each loop. It's less than five miles to supermarkets, restaurants, etc. Unfortunately during our stay (December 2015) much of the campground was under water due to flooding of the lake, so the beach and other amenities were closed and the campground was mostly vacant despite being a holiday weekend. AT&T and Verizon both worked well, and we received plenty of over-the-air TV channels. As others have mentioned, there is a $10 per day vehicle fee in addition to the $23 camping fee. We'd return here, but only after the flooding has receded and the damage it caused has been repaired. - LifeRebooted

This is a nice park close enough to the Dallas area for a weekend getaway. We stayed for two nights, and the park was nice and quiet. There is not much to do there, but it is a great place to get away if that is what you are looking for. - Aggiepi

There are 3 parks at Bardwell Lake available for camping. We camped at Mott Park and had a nice lakefront site, which we were able to select online. Even though it was a holiday weekend, the spaces are far enough apart that it did not seem crowded or noisy. Some sites require a lot of leveling, and some are 30-amp only, but the reservation system will tell you this. This is a no-frills park, but the scenery is lovely and a perfect getaway if you want to just get out of town, enjoy nature, and relax. - Lucydog

Gate attendants were friendly and knowledgeable. Sites were trashy. Sites are not real level but in site 8 we were able to level our 5th wheel. Not going to mention the homeless trailer that is an eye sore: surprised COE allowed the situation in the park. - From the Kites
Jun 2016 - $9.00
The park is a natural beauty. However seeing the previous reviews, we were very disappointed and our lower rating is directly related to poor management. On the good side, the gate attendants are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the park and the area. The electricity is steady and water pressure is about 65 PSI. The sites do not have sewer hook ups but there is a dump station located at the end of the camping loop. There are 2 loops, the larger one has some 50 amp, but the smaller one is all 30 amp. Very few sites are level, some large motorhomes may struggle to get level. All sites have a water view. However, the bad here is that the park management is allowing a homeless family to occupy a park host site in a very derelict trailer. 2 younger adults, 3 children, 2 dogs and a cat. There is no vehicle to move the trailer which is falling apart, the slide is decrepit, open at the top to the elements. The slide and roof are covered with tarps, the unit has a window and half the door boarded up with wood, there were several window AC units. No apparent tote or vehicle to move waste to the dump, we were dismayed to see the drain connection simply open to the ground. Junk and trash all over the site. Dogs left tied up outside 24/7, barking at passersby, yipping and whining at everything else. When we asked park staff about the situation, we were told there were "extenuating circumstances". The people did not work for the park while we were there. There were several sites that had trash in them, and fire pits had not been cleaned. We probably would not visit there again until this situation is resolved. - Fixn2gocamp

The roads in this park have deteriorated and need some work. Sites are not level with significant front to back slopes. Asphalt sites are spacious, and grounds are manicured, and have great views of the lake. Each site has a covered patio with a large picnic table, Bar-b-q/fire pit and a generous space for parking a vehicle. Water and electric only; dump station. - the Fishers

We've stayed here before, but won't next time. The gravel roads are in need of repair, grass needs mowing. Lots of construction going on but apparently no maintenance. There are new owners and the price has gone up. Too high a price for a gravel parking lot. - cameocamper
May 2016 - $40.00
Park has new owners who increased the rates to $46.00 per night. This is a clean park with a lot of full time residents. The WiFi is not good and either does not allow you to connect or stay connected. If you are lucky and get connected it is very slow. While this is a good park it is over priced for what you get. I will look for another park next time I pass through. - MovinOnDownTheRoad

Made it to Texas with no problems, had a monthly reservation at the Texan RV Resort (Mansfield) via phone for a back-in. When I got my receipt it was for a pull-through (no big deal). We were told that since we weren't going to be coming in until about the 5th that our monthly rent would be pro-rated - it was not.
We arrived and at first our reservation could not be found. Then we were led to a spot that had a travel trailer in it. Then we were told to park in another spot - okay - no problem.
So we pull in, drop the trailer off of the truck and proceed. Then someone in the camp's golf cart comes up and says we have to move to ANOTHER spot.
When I went to clarify what was going on, I was told that a "previous employee" didn't update the computer and then the girl that was on shift the day before yesterday didn't update either.
We were told that we would get $100 off our next month's rent - but what if we don't stay another month? This park was not our first pick in this area.
On a side note, we have a MDT International with a 42' 5th wheel and the first spot would have been tough to get into anyway. The second spot we got into easily (and it had a shade tree with grass). The final spot has no shade and no grass.
When asked why we had to move out of the second spot I was told that THAT spot had been reserved specifically for tomorrow's arrival.
To top it off, Wi-Fi is weak and won't connect.

As in many RV parks around Dallas the park tenants here are for the most part are transient workers. Some of their campers made us shudder with the creeps, for example aged FEMA trailers with all the windows covered with foil. The upside of sharing a campground with workers is that they go to work, on weekdays the park empties out by 7 AM and it's very quiet. All sites are "back in" but most are nice and wide, even a novice RVer won't have a problem, just avoid the few sites that sit at awkward angles. They do allow you to drive down and pick any site you want, set up and then report back to the office. Solid and fairly level concrete pads and wide concrete roads. Clean 50 amp service, good sewer hook up. I disagree with an earlier post there's very limited shade available. Get used to train noise, two railways cut through town, and one is just 500 yards over the creek from the park. The trains run night and day and it will take a bit of getting used to the whistles through the night but you do become accustomed to the noise and the gentle vibrations. We stayed here two months and felt welcome and safe. The cost was very reasonable (plus electricity) the owners leave you alone. Across the creek sits a wonderful 7 3/4 mile long hike and bike path we recommend you walk the North path, it follows the Creek for 1 3/4 miles and is very pleasant and the view varies. The South path goes for 6 miles and is not nearly as varied in scenery. Now about the rental apartments built by the storage and RV park owner. You will be amused driving by the little ghetto of transformed storage units, these people are living in little box's with no sanitation, they use communal men's and ladies' showers and washrooms and the dress of choice most days is pajama's and furry slippers, Howard Hughes would be proud. Don't worry, they keep to themselves. - Bri & Max

Maneuvering is very easy, the sites are relatively level, all the hookups work, the dump station is easy to use and even in the Texas heat, there was enough shade to keep things reasonable. This is a campground I will always return to. - tbax46

Even though this is the best RV Park Waxahachie has to offer, it's still not much. It is located behind a storage facility. There are RV's parked in the storage facility with people living in them. There are 2 pole barn type structures with several apartments in them. The lots are very small, and the small winding drives make it very difficult to maneuver and park your rig. It is located in a very bad section of town. All in all, the drives and lots are all paved with paved small patios. I think this is because of the creek that runs along side the park. When it rains a lot, I have been told, the creek overflows into the park and it has to be evacuated. I was also told that when the creek rises to not go into the high grass along the creek because of copperhead snakes. All of the campers, except for us and one other camper, were work campers who have jobs in the area and live here. I will not stay here again, and that is too bad because Waxahachie is a nice little town close to Dallas. - leftyfaye

Stayed in site 19, an interior site so the loud band was not a problem. Level gravel site. Be sure to call ahead as the sites are filling up with local construction workers. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Will stay again if in the area. - twocoots
Oct 2014 - $27.00
This park is about 10-15 miles from I-35W, then a dusty gravel road to get to park. A lot of full timers live there. Unlevel sites. At dark a loud band from a bar thru the trees started & played thru the night. Dogs barking all night. WiFi not good. Not a great place to stay even one night. We would Not stay here again! - Knay

We stayed here while shopping for a new motorhome at MHSRV also. It's only about 10 minutes away, so if you're shopping it's conveniently located. They have pull through and back in sites. The pull through sites being large enough to accommodate a 40' 5th wheel and long bed truck. The site we were in didn't have much grassy area, and the site itself was mostly Texas clay dirt. It had rained before we got there, so there was quite a bit of mud at our site. A little gravel would help keep the mud out of our RV. The "grassy" area next to our rig was mostly weeds, and more mud. But for a couple of nights it wasn't a bad option. The Wi-Fi worked really well, the people were nice and we didn't have a problem getting our satellite up and running. There are some trees here, but not a lot. There aren't many dining options in Alvarado, we went to Benny Joe's and it wasn't bad. Mansfield has a grocery store and more restaurant options. - Gogirl
