2 Parks near Wylie, Texas
Dec 2010 - $40.00
DO NOT STAY AT THIS PARK! The bath house is disgusting and riddled with spiders and bugs. The hot water is NEVER on so when you do try to take a a shower: the water is cold. There is no laundry facility: the closest one is in Wylie and that laundry mat is disgusting. There is no mail service, so if you stay long term you must buy a PO box in Wylie. There is also no outgoing mail so you must drive into Wylie to simply mail out you mail. Very inconvenient. If your pipes freeze, YOU are responsible even though the water controller the parks utilize are NOT for inclement weather. I went out of town and turned off my water and their cheap pipes froze while I was gone. I returned home to a $150.00 dollar bill taped to my door. This park also over charges on electricity bills. DO NOT BE FOOLED by the ignorant office manager at the gate house, she does the meter reading and over charges on all monthly bills. Overall this park is the worst park I have lived in as a full time RV'er. You will regret wasting your time moving here, to have to move after you have realized the disgusting park and its employees. - tgerald

This campground is advertised as a resort but is far from it. The sites were so un-level you could not sit on lawn chairs outside, no picnic table, no shade and the roads were so bumpy it turned over the furniture in the RV. The restrooms were not even roadside rest quality, no door on the one and only toilet stall, dead bugs, bird droppings all over the floor and fixtures and one shower stall that had not been cleaned lately. I would not ever stay here again and would not recommend it to anyone. They charge a premium price for a sub-standard park. - rlyons

Been staying here the past 5 years and have seen this park deteriorate terribly. For some reason the Corps does not put any money into the operations or maintenance. Grass is only mowed 3-4 times a year, 3 large 20' diameter potholes have been getting worse over the last 3 years. Last time I had to drive out against the one way traffic to avoid them...sad. The entire road system needs replacing, along with re-grading to eliminate water around water and electric pedestals. A new bathroom/ storm shelter has recently been installed, perhaps solving the bath issue, but there's never any money to maintain anything. Tree limbs block road access unless you want to be scratched. The manager is now imposing the 14 day rule, so campers have to leave after 2 weeks, so the park sits virtually empty 'till the next public holiday. Why would anyone want to chase campers out so there's no revenue? Answer: Fed. Gov't campgrounds. It's now so bad I had to leave and find another place. Don't want to go back, even though this place used to have so much to offer. Camp here at your own risk! - slabman

Do not even know where to begin. Stayed there two weeks. No bathrooms and no showers most of our stay. Took shower one night and was standing in raw sewage. Their solution was to drive 6 miles to nearby park to use restroom and shower. WHAT? One couple who works office very nice and helpful. Other couple leaves a bit to be desired. Actually shut the gate bar down on top of our vehicle. Was a mistake, but... This is an Army Corp park and I went up the chain of command regarding deplorable condition of restrooms. They apologized but that was it. Maintenance was more concerned with making sure we were not parking on the grass rather than get bathrooms functioning. Weather has taken a huge toll on this park but at least let your campers know there is no bathrooms. No sewer hookup either, so you full timers can only imagine. Never mowed around site either. In 1.5ft of grass whole time. - Travelingbabycatcher

We lived four miles from this park before going full-time. Always stop here for our doctor visits, and to see kids/ grandkids.
Very spacious, on flat area which doesn't drain well after heavy rains. Be careful - many sites are depressed and flood. Won't damage your rig, but you will get your feet wet.
After spring 2015 floods, day use area is closed.
As one of the four highest priced COE parks in Texas, falls short on my value scale. Previous project to rebuild restrooms and add sewer hookups - which was stopped several years ago - might be restarted in 2016 according to park hosts, local COE office. I'll wait and see.
As mentioned above - park roads are horrible and getting worse. COE had millions of dollars of flood damage in Texas in 2015. I don't see how they will get to projects like fixing huge pot-holes soon.
Road from TX-78 to park is also getting worse. Collin County and City of Wylie each have short stretches of the road and neither is planning to fix their part. Heavy truck traffic for nearby water plant and KSC RR facility doing more damage daily. - PawPaw
