This camp has gone to the dogs. We've been staying here on our trip south for years. It use to be a great little spot to stop, do a little shopping, eat out and continue on our way. It's just a dump now. I had to try 4 different sites in order to get one with usable electric. Maintenance seems nonexistent. Long-term Residents take up most of the usable spaces. We'll be looking for an alternative in the future. Maintenance pays dividends, why can't management get that through their heads??? We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Okay for overnight. Rate now $20. Only three or fours still open at outlet mall although their website indicates otherwise. Appears to be mostly long term residents. Utilities worked. No showers. Easy access and fairly level. No shade trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has three things going for it. 1. Easy on/off the highway. 2. Cheap. 3. Located at the factory outlet stores. The negatives: 1. Not many sites. 2. There was only one pull-through site not taken long-termers. 3. It was narrow to back-in. 4. No attendant. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The July review pretty well sums up this park. I will mention that trash cans are present at each space. We found a sort of honor system check in. Fill out a form, and put it, along with your 15 dollars, in a lock box out in the park. This is a great place if all you want is a comfortable place to spend the night. Cracker Barrel and Applebee's are out front. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was a pleasant surprise. It’s located on the south side of the Gainesville Factory Shops. It’s nothing special, but at $15/night it does not have to be. There is no bathhouse, but you do have full-hookups at your site and they are on all year. The campground caters to the traveler, although there are several long-term residents. You’re near the expressway, but you won’t hear much highway noise. The grounds are well maintained and plenty of grass with no sand burrs. We were going to stay at another campground north of the Texas border but reviews of tons of sand burrs caused us to try this campground. We’re glad we did. At night, it’s almost daylight out due to the security lights on the back side of the factory outlet buildings. Getting to the campground is easy from exit 501 off I-35. Do not go through the main entry arch area of the mall. Go to Prime Outlets Blvd near the highway overpass and proceed west around the back of the mall area. The highest I’ll rate a campground that does not have any facilities is a 7. That’s only fair to the owners who go through the trouble and expense of providing more. One nice thing about this location is that there is a Cracker Barrel restaurant at the other end of the mall. Other than that it’s kind of isolated. If you call the campground number you’ll get a list of phone extension options. The RV option leads nowhere. Select security and they know everything about the park. Self-serve registration.

Great overnight stop! Had no idea it was here until I checked rvparkreviews. However be sure your water has a spigot. I signed in, leveled and began hookups theen discovered the spigot missing on the water service. Glad I had onboard water. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean sites. All had picnic tables and trash cans and were clean. Would stay here again for overnight in the area. Most stores in Mall closed. Good food in same parking lot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found it confusing to find the right direction to get into the campground. Almost all the sites were already occupied when we got there which was about 3PM. All but one of the sites are double; you park end to end and there are two sets of hookups. A lot of the stores in the outlet mall are closed or closing soon. This is a good campground for an overnight stop but there did seem to be some rigs setup on a more permanent basis. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great stopover RV site if you traveling on I-35. It is on the south side of the Factory Outlet Mall. If you arrive late, you pay using the Honor System at the entrance of the park. If you arrive during shop hours, you register & pay at the Food Court. The RV park does not have bathrooms/showers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very small park, however, considering other parks we rated it a 7. Convenient for visiting family and the amenities met our needs. We enjoyed our stay and would return to this park when in Gainesville. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small city park next to the interstate. Close to town. WiFi is available at nearby businesses. There is a public restroom which was moderately clean. No showers. There were several sites in which the water wasn't working, and some which had a constant leak. Check the water before setting up: guess how I figured that out! We did not see a manager and we were here 4 days. Payment is made in a Dropbox. We felt safe here but on our last day, our neighbor's car was stolen in broad daylight. It is unlikely that we would stay here again. There weren't many campers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Cheap, however they've gone up to $15 a night - convenient to I-35 and downtown Gainesville, Texas. Walking distance to public library, (2 blocks) downtown historic square, (4) blocks, fast food dining, (2) blocks. You have to 'guess' which motorhome the park host is in. Very poor planning on that end. No signage whatsoever, cluing you in to find host to pay. Only downsides were way too close to Interstate traffic - you hear trucks from 200 yards away 24/7, and most of the RV park street lights are burned out. Spooky at night for that reason. I liked the RV park better when it was only $10 a night with a lockbox where you pay on the honor system much better. The park host is somewhat of a pest to get your payment on-the-spot when you arrive by chasing down to the site you select on your own. She did this to me the second night when I pulled in after doing some sightseeing around the area. Dumping fee only is $10. So, you might as well spend the night. The price is right, and that is my main concern when on the road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Grassy, level sites. Adequate TV reception with antenna. Easy walk to McDonald's and Starbuck's for free WI-FI access. Payment was made in cash directly to on-site park host. Rather difficult to locate despite being directly adjacent to the Interstate. From exit, proceed directly on east side frontage road past Taco Bell and Quality Inn. Unmarked park follows and is between ball field and Interstate. May be a good overnight stay with proviso that there is heavy traffic, and therefore, noise, all night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is a nice municipal park for $15.00 per night for full hook-ups. It is not a destination park but is extremely convenient to Interstate 35. The sites are long but, on the other hand, the hook-ups are at the end of the site and perfect for a trailer or a 5th wheel. We have a motorhome and, if we wanted to stay hooked-up to our Jeep, we could not hook-up to the sewer. However, we just swung around in the morning and dumped. Simple. We did not try the bathrooms and do not know if there are showers. The park is next to the baseball field and it was a real treat to watch the Varsity High School game. A real touch of Americana. However, the umps, the players and some of the fans park 3 to a campsite and, sometimes on game Friday nights, there are no campsites available. The park is close to the Braum's Ice Cream - what could be better? We walked through park of the town in the evening eating our ice cream and enjoyed the ambiance. We camped here in a Motorhome.
