Rolled into the Texan at 2:30pm on a Tuesday in 106F/117F heat index temps. There are minimal shade trees in the park, but the site was perfectly level. A nice touch on the power poles is a light with on/off switch, making hooking up after dark a whole lot easier. I found it helpful when I was doing a rig check (tire pressures, hitch, etc.) before sunrise the next morning in the dark. The office staff were friendly, efficient, and the office seemed stocked with enough items so you wouldn't have to drive into town (some groceries, Iice cream, camp supplies, games for kids, souvenirs). The only negative I could find was the difficulty finding the park off the highway. Another sign or two posted at the odd intersection would point RVers past a stand of trees that keep you from seeing the RV park from the roadway. I heard no noise during my afternoon and overnight stay, but my A/C unit was running full out the whole time, too. I would stay here again for the convenience of getting on/off the highway, quietness, and level site....and not having to camp in Dallas or Fort Worth, yet still be near. It was a 10 minute drive to Fort Worth the next morning.

I did not see a pool, nor use their bathrooms or laundry facilities. This is definitely NOT a resort. The owner acknowledges 'problems' with the WiFi; there is no functional Wifi to the campground. You can connect to his local router, but the network will not allow you on. The owner has a convoluted explanation for this. The short story is he doesn't provide internet service because he doesn't have business class internet connection. Check-in involved paying the money then hunting for an open campsite. That was a mission to dodge large puddles in dips in the poorly graveled roads, including getting around the numerous 3/4 ton trucks parked in the roadway without dragging the car through a lake of puddle water. This is NOT a place you would want to navigate after dark! The site I found (close to the office) was level--a positive. I was able to pull in one TV station from Amarillo to get news on the storms rolling through the area. The rate paid includes Good Sam discount. Overall, I think it is too much. I could find better overnight parking on a closed gas station lot in town.

Arrived to a spotless campground, children playing in a crystal clear pool, smiling, friendly office staff welcoming me by name (I had a reservation). Sites are small, but they do have grass, picnic table, permanent grill, adequate gravel, including timbers embedded marking site outlines. I have a 32' Class A and found both owner and other camp staff extremely helpful getting me into a back-in site. Pull-throughs are available, but I will be here longer term, so I was accommodated with a back-in, as I requested. There are shaded spots, and the trees are trimmed properly to avoid gouging the roof. I can see traffic on Hwy 40 above the campground but can't hear any road noise. I had problems in July contacting this campground for a reservation. Owner assures this was a personnel issue that was fixed, and I can validate that. I have since been able to reach them by phone, and have them return my calls. If you have a larger rig (over 35') you would want to be in your site before dark, as the turns can be tight. There is a mobile home park behind the back fence, with occasionally noisy dogs, but that is beyond this campground's control and I am a dog person so I don't find it bothersome. It was pin-drop silent after dark, and it was so clear last night the stars were visible....best nights sleep I've had in a week! Yes, the campground still does need some maintenance, but it doesn't detract from the overall experience. Office has good selection of camping small items, including quality T-shirt souvenirs and ICE CREAM, soda, snacks.

Have spent 3 months at this campground working in area. Management has handled the record snowfall (30+inches!) very well. Plow guy rounds the camp 4-6 times a day during the storms to keep roads open, then clears individual lots for cars. Deer, birds a plenty. Dog owners need to be policed better. I have dogs & scoop religiously..wish others did, too. Office staff very helpful with mail/pkg deliveries. Campground VERY quiet during this time..minimal children.

Park located in BAD neighborhood. Lots of pedestrian traffic outside park late at night. Beggars knocked on my door at 6 am, there is no security personnel in park. Police sirens wailing every 2 hours, loud bass bumps from street traffic, foul, cursing neighbors in mobile home park across brick/barb wire wall. Neighbors in 5th wheel asked if I had an electric spike like they did?!? No laundry or bathhouse onsite & local laundromats overrun with grubby kids. Management reports owner will not pay for grounds kept up, so manager tries to pass that cost on to residents. Sites overrun with ants and tree debris.
