The parks roads in bad shape, camping sites also need repairs. The grass was high. - Joceil

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

I have stayed out here before. Just needed to stay a short time. I drove in and found the park in deplorable condition. There were old junky trailers everywhere. Trash and junk stacked everywhere. After trying to call a few weeks, unable to reach anyone because they won't call you back. We left. It really was that bad. - J59T

This is a gravel parking lot with hook ups. It's cheap and the 10 dollar rate reflects the monthly rate. They charge $100 for the week or $20 a day. Quite a few long time residents. Their hours that they conduct "business" leave a bit to be desired. - J59T

Website is deceiving, park has been open for about 2 years and they have made NO improvements. There are no laundry, shower or restroom facilities. - J59T

This is a great little COE. We had a back in site on the water that accommodated our 41ft 5th wheel, truck and a small SUV. Electric and water services were fine. No sewer connections but. It a big deal for a short stay. It's about 10 minutes or less off of I45. Very quite. - OpenRoadJedi

Nice Park on Lake Bardwell near Ennis, TX. One of the bathhouses was closed for repairs. - Alicenpete
Jun 2017 - $8.00
This is the most poorly maintained COE we have stayed at. Our site was fine but had not been mowed in quite some time. Entry was unmanicured and we are not usually very picky, but this was very noticeable and out of character from our COE experience. - pwdorris

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

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

We were warned about the ant problem on our arrival so I put a natural insecticide down around d the jacks and tires. It must have worked for two days. But on the third day, after a full day at the Texas State Fair we came back to an inundated MH with crazy ants. I had to go to a 24 hour Walmart for Home Defense and send the grand kid home in the middle of the night so we could rid the MH of ants. I never seen them on the jacks, tires or lower compartments but they seemed to be everywhere in the living area. How they got in is a mystery. Home Defense and/or Devin dust is necessary! We have since been told this is a years old problem at Cedar Hill S.P., so it is off our list of places to return to. And that is a shame since it was beautiful outside and close to Dallas and the grandson. - jlogco1978

This park should be labeled a bio-hazard and closed down until the problem is solved. It is overrun with Argentine ants which are everywhere. They are on your picnic tables, benches, RV pads and everywhere else. Even though we sprinkled Sevin dust all around our trailer, we woke up with ants everywhere inside the trailer. In the beds, counters, walls, sinks, you name it. Argentine ants are an invasive species with no natural control. We hated to use insecticides in the trailer, but we used Sevin dust inside, Raid ant spray and diatomaceous earth. It was horrible. It was the first day of our trip and we thought it was over, but where to go? Certainly not home where we could transport this biological nightmare. The thought of our house being overrun with these creatures was too much. We got out of that park immediately and continued with our trip. I sincerely apologize for transporting an invasive species around the country. With continued the use of Raid and Sevin dust and we beat them back after a few days. Its been a week since we got home and have not seen them. We can pray that we got them all. It was a nightmarish start to our trip. - LouVZ

My DH and I stayed in this park for a week. The site was very spacious with a very large back area. The site was asphalt and hard but not very level. The grass was not cut and in areas on our site the grass was knee high. The restroom/showers were buggy and there was a tarantula living in the ladies shower area. The water here smells like sulfur. Our site was very quiet and we were able to enjoy a fire in the fire pit. We ended up with an ant infestation so we probably will not stay here again. - Travelindog

We had a good overnight experience and would return. The location is nice, close to the highway without the highway noise. It is very quiet. They were able to accommodate our big rig, but the sites are a little close. We did not use any of the amenities although the pool was very nice and temping. There are small trees on each site and plenty of grassy area with tables. The sites are set up so the utilities are shared. The intense heat during our stay did cause our EMS to drop power a couple of times but it quickly restored. - Stephen Pinn

All driving and parking surfaces are granite pea gravel. Our pull-through site is 6" out of level. This facility is nice and very adequate, but it is not "manicured." Many mature trees provide shade to several sites. Dog park is close to common areas. Full hookups are located well and in close proximity to our connect points on our rig. Good WiFi connectivity. Nice clean pool and adjacent covered pavilion with gas grill/charcoal grill and picnic tables, playground, horseshoe pit and basketball goal. The restroom/bath house/laundry facilities are very clean. - SteveDahl

This campground was very neat, clean and the WiFi was pretty good, although a bit slow. The laundry was very clean and it was $1.50 to wash and $1.00 to dry. The roadways around the CG were grave, MH was parked on a concrete slab and there was a picnic table and a nice grassy area between. It was not really near any restaurants or shopping,so we had to go the Ft. Worth or Arlington area for food and shopping. We would stay here again. - quilt lady

Beautiful park. Nice shady spots. We were here during the week. Very few people. A big day-use, swimming and recreation area so weekends & summer months are likely to be extremely busy. - MoHo on the Go

Typical State/City park, everything clean and neat, staff friendly and helpful. Sites for FHU are at back of park away from the lake with only 30A electric. Site was asphalt and reasonably level. Lots of trees but were still able to get our satellite TV without hassle. Nice park in fairly central location to Dallas and Ft.Worth with all major shopping available in nearby Mansfield. - Retired Wanderers

Considering your within the confines of the metroplex called DFW and within 30-45 minutes drive of most of DFW...this park is actually rather quite and nice. In the mornings you could hear/see the airplanes leaving DFW...but the planes were high enough it wasn't inconvenient or annoying. Having read the warning in a couple of other reviews about the extra parking fee ($10 a day per motor vehicle - no charge for trailers)...I thought I had paid ahead; I was wrong...but they do take credit cards at the gate. The road construction on 360 is annoying, it appeared that will be wrapping up soon. ATT service was ok, but we were there to sleep and shower at the trailer...the rest of the time we were enjoying the sites of DFW. If you need 50 Amp service, might be best to call the park office ahead of time and make sure they have you down for one. Their online reservation system works really well, but there is no way to request a 50 amp service; thankfully it wasn't warm enough to need both a/c units and we could use the adapter. The folks working the gate were very friendly and willing to answer questions & offer suggestions. - zhilton

Privately owned RV park on Beaumont Ranch 800 acres. RV park is generally a large field with water and electric service only. There is a dump site on the property behind the check in building. Most electric boxes are 30 amp. Only about 10 are 50AMP. Electric boxes are not labeled with amperage, however, approximately 10 boxes located next to the main road are 50 AMP, rest are 30. Power supply fluctuates so be sure to use surge suppressor. Water pipes were leaking and had been for some time. Lots of standing water around power pole and water pipe. All sites are back in. Two sites are "covered" with metal building to help with Texas heat. Both appeared to be occupied full time. No shade at all on the RV grounds. Getting to the actual park is a challenge for big rigs (anything over 32') as the roads are winding, and narrow with no shoulders. Main entrance to the ranch is somewhat deceiving as there is an "overhead" archway with "Beaumont Ranch" on it. Height appears to be less than 14 feet, so high profile vehicles should not enter Gate 1 (main gate), but continue pass the entrance and watch for RV Park signs. No one accompanied us to our site, in fact, we were told to "pick out a site and come in to the office in the morning to pay." Entire RV area is grass, and although electric boxes have numbers on them, sites are not well defined. Several electric boxes had wasps in them, so be careful opening.
Nice fishing ponds with paddle boats. Cattle-drive was fun, as was the sporting clay shooting. If you are coming into the RV park, use Gate 3, and plan to arrive before dark or you will be swarmed by the night bugs. The people were very friendly, knowledgeable, helpful. Even though most of the main property grounds around the check in area are not well suited for high profile heavy large rigs, once in the RV park, that is not an issue. - usamacdonald2

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

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
