When you choose to stay at PARADISE, you are choosing to escape the hustle and bustle of the modern world and take it easy for a while. We offer experiences in cabins and tiny homes (glamping) and you're also welcome to bring your tents, rvs, campers, you name it. We especially like vintage campers and welcome all wunderlusters and adventure travelers to join us in our beautiful landscape. We offer 40 RV sites (many with full hook-up and 50a). Our South Loop (22-50) is for larger campers and the West Loop (1-21) is for smaller campers up to 24', tents (in select sites), and glamping. We also boast a huge walk-in primitive camping area where you can setup a tent anywhere you wish. Every site is either waterfront or waterview. All sites (except primitive camping area) feature rock pads, picnic table, grill/firepit, and are spacious so you're not crammed in your neighbors area. The park has a hammock garden, community bar area, day use area, pavilion, event center, playground, and restroom facilities.
Paradise on Lake Texoma is on the Big Mineral Arm of the lake, on the Texas side and only a short 90 minute drive from Dallas. This proximity makes it a great spot for a quick weekend getaway. Texas and Oklahoma’s border share the 89,000 surface area of Lake Texoma which just happens to be the 12th largest Corps of Engineers lake in the U.S. Lake Texoma is home to great fishing for Striper, Catfish, Black Bass and Crappie. Because of heavy rains in the Dallas area the boat ramp was closed. The area has cruise activities if you don’t have your own boat, and for those who prefer, kayaking is also available, or simply swimming. Believe it or not, Lake Texoma has sandy beaches!
The people at Paradise campground were amazing. We got a call the afternoon of our reservation to confirm that we would arrive before closing time and if not, they would give us after hours information. We did arrive in time and our hostess was pleasant and provided us with all the information we needed. We reserved a primitive campsite and were the only tent campers in the campground (it was a Monday night though). The primitive campsite is just a vacant lot on the waterfront across from a bathroom/shower area. Parking in the bathroom lot, you take a very short walk to the primitive site and pitch your tent in any spot you choose. The lot had been mowed and our only issue was mounds of fire ants which are rampant everywhere in Texas.
The bathrooms had not been cleaned and the recent users had left a bit of a mess. The bathrooms did have all the supplies we needed and we always welcome flush toilets and hot and cold running water.
Being a primitive site, there was no picnic table so we drove over to an empty spot to prepare and eat our dinner. A staff member came by to check our credentials and while we weren’t really supposed to be using that area/spot, he let us since the campground had plenty of room/spots. He was so friendly, he gave us lots of information about the lake and the campground. The RV sites and also lakefront and very roomy. The campground also has the cutest glamping tiny cabins and other regular size cabins to rent. There is a nice hammock garden which we took advantage of. Cell service was strong, no issues and the only noise we dealt with was the sound of the lake and the birds and critters.
We want to encourage our family to come to Paradise on Lake Texoma for a fun family weekend, we will definitely return.
As a Ranger for The Dyrt, I get products to test from time to time, today I am testing Wenzel’s Double Never Flat Fabric Air Pad. My husband and I had individual sleeping air pads, but were looking for something that wasn’t so slippery and would allow us to cuddle, this Air pad fit the bill, it was exactly what we wanted. It was very comfortable and roomy. We were able to use an existing pump for inflation which was great as I wasn’t sure about the specs for the pump. Deflating the air pad was easy and great news it fit back in the carry bag easily!
This place is beautiful and the staff is wonderful! Bathrooms are very clean.
