Park is not a resort. It provides basic services. Sites were fairly level but did require use of blocks under tires. Road through park had pot holes and needs repaving. Restroom near front entrance recently rebuilt and is also used as storm shelter. Made from concrete and can get very hot during day. No sewer connections but dump station outside gate. Gate closes at 10 pm. Cannot drive into park after that time. We camped at East Fork COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park with very large sites, especially if you are on the outer ring. Parking and navigating through the park are a breeze, but there are some horrendous potholes on the way in. No wifi, but cell service was excellent. Not a bad place to stay to visit Dallas from. The grass was all dead, but it was otherwise a pretty park with a nice lake and swimming area. Not many trees. My main problem with this park was it was invaded every morning until about noon by swarms of gnats. They were so thick, there was no way to keep them out if you opened your door. They weren't so bad one morning when it was cold, so it may just be they show up when its hot out. They really curtailed my enjoyment of this park. We camped at East Fork COE in a Travel Trailer.

This was a nice clean campground. Very quiet and peaceful. We had a nice level site with beautiful views of the lake. We arrived late and paid for two nights. Then we found out they had no bathrooms or showers and only port a potty's that needed cleaning. I did end up finding a bathroom that was unlocked but it was dirty with bugs and spiders everywhere. My girls were afraid to use it. They don't have sewer hookups, so this made things difficult for our family of five. We may return one day if they open up the bathrooms and clean them. We camped at East Fork COE in a Travel Trailer.

Needed mowing, etc very badly. No rest rooms in service. Site had great view of the lake. No true shady sites. Road paved and in good repair. Close to but away from a lot of services and shopping. Probably would stay there again short term. We camped at East Fork COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for the second time. They had attempted to hook their restroom facilities to the City of Wylie sewer system but the city had blocked the connection for some reason. This may be resolved but it required only self-contained units during our stay. The dump station is just outside the park entrance. The lake was extremely low due to the drought so there was little boating on the lake and very limited boat launches around the lake; none at the park. There are hours at night when you may leave the park but unable to drive a vehicle into the park. Reservations are encouraged but drive in traffic is always accepted based on availability. We will return to the park in the future. We camped at East Fork COE in a Motorhome.

The good things about this park is that it's quiet, lots of space between sites, and it has a beautiful view. The bad thing about this park is that they didn't appear to have anyone cleaning sites after campers left. We had bottle caps, cigarette butts, and debris on the site. It didn't take a long time to clean it but it wasn't appealing. We camped at East Fork COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Physically, the campground is nice with a water view of a large lake. Wish they had sewer at the site though, instead of a dump station. I will not stay at this park again for the following reasons: 1) It took maybe 15 minutes to check in. The woman at the computer had no idea how to use the computer and I needed to tell her about all the errors she was making and what she needed to change to get it to process my credit card, etc. 2) When you return to the campground in your car, you have to wait in line if anyone is checking in (see #1 to see why that's a big deal). A line often forms and it's best to have a book or digital device to entertain you while you wait. There was a second entrance lane, but they had it blocked off. I asked if we could go "in" the "out" in those situations and they said "no" and that "someone had to wait while you checked in". 3) The gate is closed and locked at 10pm. If you return after 10, you must park outside the gate and walk to your RV, which is not great if it's raining or cold. 4) There is a single oneway loop road to all the RV sites that is .5 miles long. We were parked near the end of the loop and got sick of driving .5 miles to what we could have gotten to in .00025 miles if it was a two way road. 5) They don't allow alcohol in the park. I don't need to walk around with any, but I do enjoy a glass of wine with dinner and don't like the idea of having to lie about having some. We camped at East Fork COE in a Motorhome.

Hopefully you don't have plans to go to dinner or a movie while in Dallas, because the gates are closed and locked at 10pm. Which means you have to park your car outside the gates and walk back to your site if returning after that time. There is only one entrance to this park, and every time you return you will have to wait in line behind others checking in. The camp hosts who are older, struggle with credit card machines, and computers so the check in process can be an excruciating wait. One time I tried to go around the side of the line to re-enter the park without waiting in the line. I was scolded and told to get to the back of the line and wait my turn. They slammed the gate shut on me so I could not go through even though they recognized me as a registered camper. We camped at East Fork COE in a Motorhome.

This is an adequate Corps of Engineer's park in the Dallas area. The RV loop is not right on the lake shore, the day use area is between it and the lake. Small trees in the area provide minimal shade. We had a site on the part of the loop away from the lake which required some levelling and tended to slope away from the loop toward the marina road. This may have been good in retrospect. There were heavy rains the weekend we were there and several of the sites on the loop nearer the lake shore had standing water problems. The gate is closed and locked at 10 p.m. each night (and they don't mean 10:02!), so you must park outside the gate and walk to your site if you arrive later. There is a rail yard nearby and I heard one train a night at about 2 a.m. Restrooms are typical, non-fancy COE style and could have used some more cleaning. There is a boat ramp at the park, so this would be a good place to stay if you or your guests have a watercraft. A dump station is located on the exit road from the park. We will stay here again due to relatives in the area. We camped at East Fork COE in a Fifth Wheel.
