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.)
