This place is a treasure!

Friendly, helpful staff. Full hookup. Option for extended stay. Bath/shower rooms. Swimming pool. And TREES

Reasonably priced and located, but needs some maintenance

RV sites have water and 50/30 amp electric and there are 12 tent sites. We had a nice view of Lake Lavon. Grills and tables vary by site, some are very old, but many have been replaced. There are trees- some large enough to provide some shade if desired, but most small enough to allow satellite reception. The sites are well spaced and are"mostly" paved with aging asphalt. The roads are in need of repair, with numerous potholes, some very large, but the attendant did say that the park was on the CoEs list for repairs. There is a dump station just outside the entrance. The entry gate is locked from 10PM to 6AM, so plan accordingly if leaving the park, lest you park outside and walk back to your site. Overall, this is a good value, and one of the few non-RV park options in the greater Dallas area.

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.

Great location and value for the $$$

This campground is nestled in the middle of a neighborhood on Lake Dallas. There are about 15 RV sites(30/50 amp), 15 primitive sites with showers and restrooms. This campground is well patrolled and maintained. There is a couple mile walking trail at starting at the campground that is paved. The campsites are pretty well spread out and many of them have awesome views of the lake. We would stay here again!

Lots of trees

Beautiful campground.  There are a few full hookups. There is a swim area and boat dock.  Some sites have double concrete, most just single.  Many of the sites are surrounded by trees and very private.

Nice Park on Lake Lavon

Enjoyed a night here. Nice, clean, open RV park on Lake Lavon. It’s well established but in good shape. Big level RV sites with grills and covered tables. You’ll enjoy this park!

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.
