Wonderful park. Home of the NRVTA

This park has full hookups, spacious sites, amazing staff!

Great place for the price

It feels like a state park, but run by the city. All sites are back in and allow for tent campers. Some sites are 50 amp, while all are for 30 amp. Larger rigs are more accomdated next to the lake. But call ahead to see which sites have 50 amp, you'll need it I summer time. Beach is great.

Clean, Well Kept campground off of highway

*though this park is technically an “airstream” park, it allows non airstream RV’s for camping, just add a slightly higher nightly price.

PROS:

PAVED SITES: the terraport area for RV’s is nicely paved, smooth and flat. Sunsets here on the hill are lovely.

BATHROOM: bathrooms are cleaned regularly.

COMMUNITY: the airstream community that lives here permanently are very friendly and plan many community events open to all, like bean bag baseball and soup night.

GATED: the community is gated at night with a code which makes the place feel more secure than other off-the-highway campgrounds.

CONS:

LOCATION: there’s nothing much in Hillsboro, not even good restaurants. The nearest HEB grocery is over 30 minutes away. This campground is great for stopping through, but a pain if you’re looking for a long term stay with nearby things to do.

LOUD: the highway is close by and pretty loud, though when you’re inside your rig it’s unlikely you’ll hear it.

Overall we had a pleasant stay here. Our biggest annoyance was having to drive far for groceries, restaurants or for overall civilization. The people here are super friendly and love their airstreams.

Thousand Trails

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.

Beautiful Lake

Only 2 trails, one of which is lacking. But it makes up with beautiful lake views.

Great Experience!

Plenty of good camping spots as well as great trails and a big beautiful lake.

Quiet. Nice.

I stayed in rv campsite 270 on a peninsula and a nice view of the water's edge. The roads in this park are absolutely terrible. The winds were high (over 20 mile and hour wind gusts). And it rained a lot. 

I stayed during the week. Not a single other site was taken within 300 yards. Because of the recent rains, most of the trails were off limits. And they have a pretty bad argentinian ant problem this Fall. So, I didn't get to go hiking any. But, I bought some ant killer and sprinkled it around the perimeter of my pad and no ants in the RV! 

Overall, it's nice. Well kept. And I was pretty much alone here for my entire 3 day stay.

Big and Beautiful

Had a great time at this park. The site was perfect and level. Grill and covered picnic table. Excellent for hiking and boating. You can’t go wrong with Cedar Hill State Park.

Clean and quiet

All sites have concrete pads, picnic tables, grill, fire ring, electric and water. Also can camp in tents or rent a cabin.
