Great sites

I would like to give this campground a 5, but I can't. We are in a pandemic and the bathrooms are not clean. According to the sign on the door, the restrooms were supposed to be cleaned on Thursday, and some people came and maybe, swept. The men's room and the ladies room doors do not close all the way so there is a rock that everyone is supposed to shove up against the door to keep it shut but many people can't be bothered,so they are full of bugs. The staff that we saw were very helpful and nice, but the bathrooms are not clean.

Love it

Great access to water for fishing.swim area.clean bathrooms and showers.friendly staff.quiet peaceful.great place to take your family.boat ramp too.we love it.

Been there 100 times

Very secluded and low volume area. I would consider this a rough site. Not for thin skinned people expecting a beautiful oasis. There is a passable boat ramp, few covered picnic tables and a cornhole “bathroom” there. No ele or water. Tons of hiking if you follow the road in and look for the 4x4 paths to the right. No fee admission. Tent/trailer/rv/sleep in car/on the ground, whatever. Lots of arrowheads laying around if your lucky to spot one. Highly suggest having some sort of personal protection for the critters that come in the wee hours of the night.

I appreciate all the park workers but the short guy with the glasses is a real jerk.but still my favorite place.

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.

Horrible conditions

We had called and made reservations and as we confirmed asked if a 40ft class A could fit. Well we got there and 1st of all it is so badly run down. Also the spot he wanted us to pull into was on grass and way too small. He said oh you can fit between those 2 trees. Omg I said absolutely not, you see how big our RV is and we would sink. No gravel even. Such a disappointment.

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.

Pretty Nice

This recreation.gov campground was adequate for our needs. Most sites are shady, the outdoor tables we're sturdy, and there were fire pits and a separate cooking grill on a raised post. They parking pass we're decent asphalt. It is located on Lake Waco. There was some road noise from the highway. The toilet/shower house left a little to be desired. It wasn't as clean as it could have been. The women's showers had 2 stalls, one handicapped. The handicapped shower did not work. The other shower had a very difficult shower head to control the volume and direction of the spray. It was very cold the first morning and the shower building is not heated and had open screening at the top so showering was very eye opening! But the trees were beautiful with quite a few pecan trees. We would probably camp there again.
