Loved Grant Village! The campground is amazing. The sites were spread out and we were easily able to get our 37' Class A into our pull-through site with little hassle. The reservation staff were amazing. They placed family we were traveling with on an adjacent loop so that our 2 campsites faced each other. This provided a huge play area in between campers for the kids to play. I was extremely worried about boondocking for a week, but it was not even an issue. Everyone in camp adhered to the generator rules. I ran mine a few hours during the days and was good on batteries at night. I didn't like being allowed only 2 "free" showers a day for my family of 5, and I didn't like that the showers closed at 9pm each night, but such a little price to pay to be in Yellowstone! We had considered staying in the single campground in the park that does have hook-ups. We drove through it and it was horrible. Completely over crowded. Dirty. Muddy. You do not go to Yellowstone for the view found in this section of the park.
A pleasant surprise! With so few campground choices in town, and knowing this was essentially a grass and gravel parking lot, we really enjoyed this campground. Our site was a breeze to get into, was level gravel with grass around the picnic table area. While the laundry facility still had broken machines, at least laundry was available. The showers and restrooms were clean. The view was great and the location is convenient enough to walk to a lot of sites. I got very lucky finding the campground entrance. It is behind a motel off the main drag, there is 1 way in, and didn't want to have to do much searching at midnight. Would stay here again if I needed to be close to the action.
Needed a site for a few hours while passing through. Made reservation over the phone with no problem. Arrived to campground around midnight. My reservation was posted on the door and was easy to find. The entire campground is gravel, which I hate as a late arriver. (noisy) Being there just a few hours I just needed AC. The campground is barren. While it does appear to be a new location, there is no luxury here. All I could think about was how miserable this place would be as a destination campground for any length of time. And extremely pricey! Upon checking out the the following morning around 8am, desk staff was barely awake, completely rude, and told me to move my RV out of the entrance as quickly as possible. (Presumably for the mass exodus about to occur?) Next time I'll stay at Walmart before coughing up money to stay in something less nice.
First, we are Huge Jellystone park fans. Have been for decades. The owners of this campground are super friendly and we enjoyed their hospitality. This campground just doesn't seem as groomed as others we have visited. The sites seem wedged into the sloping terrain, and heaven help you should it rain (a regular occurrence) as this place will get muddy fast. While there are a number of activities advertised at the campground, they do not live up to the Jellystone norm. Where most parks have a large common hall for movies and activities, this location has a caboose, which was much too small. While we did watch a VHS movie on their small TV, a movie on the big screen in my coach would have been a better experience. This park is famours for having a busy train track running along it's eastern edge. The trains never blew a whistle and were never a disturbance.
Great Campground! We avoided this location a few years ago after reading many negative reviews. On this most recent trip, we needed a last minute campground and thought we'd try it. It was great. The sites were spacious. Very clean and well kept. The staff was friendly. Dinner and breakfast were available for small fees on the days we stayed. Even had musical entertainment one night. Only 2 negatives. The concrete pad sitess shown on their website are the "premium" sites and it appears they only have a few of those. We were on gravel, but it was OK. Second, the shower area, even on a mild summer night, was like a sauna. By the time you completed your shower and dried off you needed another one because it was so warm in there.
Having grown up visiting Jellystone Parks across the country, we were excited to see one coming to the North Texas area. We have stayed at this park on a number of occasions, usually with great results. Our most recent trip was not so nice. Security was lacking at the park and a large group of teenagers was allowed to terrorize a pool full of small children. Horseplay became dangerous and nudity was abundant. Camp staff seemed unable/unwilling to control the situation. Burleson PD was called in and Park staff allowed the trouble makers to remain in the park without proving they were actual paying guests. The good: As would be expected with a Jellystone Park, numerous family activities are available. The addition of the new Water Park is an extremely nice amenity. Adjacent to the Water Park is a nice, large arcade, although most of the games are of the “win tickets / trade for prizes” variety. Most sites have fire rings and un-shaded picnic tables. Water quality and pressure were good. Electrical connection was good. Sewer system was good. The camp store has the essentials one would expect. Dog park is a nice feature. The Bad: The park is only a few hundred feet east of a major interstate (I-35W) and the road noise, especially from semi's, can be loud within the park. The trees located in the older section of the park do provide some degree of noise isolation, but this older section also contains much smaller camp sites. Most barely provide enough room for typical awning deployment. The lawn care is lacking, except on Sunday mornings when lawn equipment begins operating at 8am. (REALLY?!) Sites are overgrown and full of weeds. Pool care / water clarity on most recent visit was poor. There are numerous poor-quality FEMA trailers parked throughout the camp with what appears to be either long-term residents, or Oil & Gas crews looking to save on hotel costs. Camp staff was providing maid service to these trailers so it is likely they are camp owned. Last, the waterpark is not a campground only amenity. It is open to the public, and while there is a gate separating the public parking lot from the campground, it was open during our visit due to a packed public parking lot. This means that non-camp guests were able to roam the campground.
We live 5 hours away and this is our most visited RV Park. Very family friendly and has lots of activities for the kids. The owners are great people and we enjoy seeing them every year. Plenty of shade for those hot Texas summers. For families with big rigs, there are plenty of oversized sites available.
Nice campground in a horrible location. Many of the campsites back up to a major highway. Noisy. I don't know that these would be considered "kid friendly" either with all that traffic so near. The campground sits on a long, narrow piece of land. Pretty, as long as you look in the right direction, but difficult to maneuver in.
Great campground. Lots of space. Large sites. Friendly staff. Great pool! A great feature of this campground is that it is a good distance from the major road that brings you to the campground. Great for reducing traffic noise. We ALMOST stayed at the campground across the street. Wow! Glad we didn't. (Many of those campsites back-up to the highway. Also, that campground is a long, narrow piece of property. I don't know how I would have managed my large motorhome in there.)
