New Cabins/Cottages Have Arrived!
Love the location, so close to Dallas! This park is so quite and very dark at night! I loved that about this park, glad I arrived during the daylight it would be very difficult to find an RV spot at night! They have several full hookup sites closed right now due to some upgrades! The rest rooms were very clean! They have a good hiking trail! I had to walk about 1/2 mile to get to the water! It was so worth it! Got there just in time to go fishing while there were Sand Bass schooling! I ended up catching 15 and could have caught more but it was getting dark.
- Sites are first come first serve - there is no holding sites especially if you are going as a group
- No open fires - only propane or charcoal
- Bathrooms were nice, clean and air conditioned…definitely a couple of notches above the Texas State Parks
- No wildlife here…just the human kind
- Nice shady sites but not a lot of elbow room (pretty cramped)
- Take lots of allergy medicine if you are allergic to Red Cedar
- 30 AMP sites with full hook ups
- A lot of kids activities - water melon eating contest, face painting, etc.
- Could see a lot of stars in the night sky
- Don't hang anything from the trees..will get in trouble
- No place to hang a garbage bag outside
- Overflowing trash dumpsters
- Propane filling station on the campground property
- Cell service with T-Mobile was sparse. Verizon seemed to work fine.
We got a free Thousand Trails membership from the dealership when we purchased our new camper so we decided to use it for Labor Day at Lake Whitney RV Campgrounds. We went with our camping buddies (theDyrt Ranger Jenny S and family) who also pulled their camper. The sites are first come first serve and there is no holding sites, so if you go as a group finding sites that are together is tough (several sites were bagged and not usable). We picked Sites #6 and #83 on Loop B. Luckily these sites back up to each other and the kids could roam between the two sites. The sites were 30 AMPs with full hooks up and that part was nice. Didn't have to watch tank levels every time someone (kids) flushed.
The campsites were pretty shady with red cedar trees which created havoc with my son's allergies. Poor kid was stuffed up the entire time we were there. The sites were pretty cramped, we were not able to extend our awning without hitting the tree branches. The road inside the campground is pretty beat up with lot of bumps. The amenities were nice - a family swimming pool, shuffleboard, washers, putt-putt golf. The campgrounds had several activities for Labor Day such as a water melon eating contest, frozen T-shirt contest which kept the kids entertained.
Don't hang anything on the trees. We had some LED light up and the park ranger had us take it down. Was actually a little harsh about it. Following that encounter we took down the clothesline that we strung up to dry our swimming suits and wet towels. No place to hang a garbage bag either.
Politeness in customer service was hit or miss.
Our stay was free because of the Thousand Trails membership but otherwise each site goes for about $45/night. I'll do it again for free, if I have to pay…I will go down the street at Lake Whitney State Park for $25 with full hookups.
It is first come first serve so no reserving sites even if you have a group. We were kind of disappointed our group of 4 campers couldn’t get spots together. The sites are good, some have covered picnic tables, some don’t. The lake access is not close to every hook ups but is a short driving distance. Lake access/swimming area is very nice, we had fun!
