Checked in on a Sunday. Nobody in Ranger Station. Backed up traffic while I waited for someone to come and I blocked the entry. Opted to be near the clubhouse, found a 30 AMP site (101). Level site, no grass just rocks and gravel. Asked about 30 AMP being good here and told it was fine but could not run anything in the RV along with A/C. Never had issues, hence why I asked. Breaker blew every time any second appliance was run in conjunction with A/C. This has only happened to me at one other park. Poor power here. The other loop is a long way from the pool. Shower house on this side is old, run down, tiny shower, no bench for dressing. Pool was nice and appreciated in the warm weather. The lake looked inviting and some of the sport areas (basketball, horseshoes, etc) were good. The place needs some updates and effort and will be back in what I consider a Thousand Trails level property. Connectivity: T-Mobile was zero. AT&T was very good. I have a AT&T Netgear Nighthawk without any boosters and managed 35 Mbps download speed. Bring what you need here especially if you do not have a tow vehicle. - Orracle

I had to dodge over 100 pot holes to get to site 100 in section one. At check-in I was not told the bathroom was out of order. It looked like an outhouse from the 60s, unfinished, no tile. Next closest shower I had to drive to as it was too far. The electrical 30 amp supply had 3 open blanks and was not bonded. It fried my electrical cable and the socket. There's a lot more that happened in just one day. This place is full of safety hazards, dead roaches in the clubhouse which needed remodeling 30 years ago. Hot tub was 80 degrees and a trip hazard area. Stay away! This place should be closed down. - Radrover

Stayed at Bay Landing in January in the off season. All buildings in our section were closed except business office to use internet. Staff was friendly. Roads were poorly maintained with large pot holes. Staff was trying to minimize these by putting large rocks in some of them. Sites were of good length and rustic right by the lake. 50 amp was an up-charge and not available in every site. Not good in this day and age. We did have full hook-ups in section 3 but only certain sites of the 25 sites had sewer. Most of the park was full time residents and did not have sewer hook ups. How does that work? Wild life especially dear were very plentiful. Overall not a bad park. - Wilhelms

This is an interesting park with great historic content. We stayed in one of the full hook-up sites and it was perfect for our 45' fifth wheel. We even had room to park our Freightliner in front due to the double-wide area at the road side. The picnic area was at the back of the site surrounded by trees with a nice grassy lawn area, beautiful yard for our stay here! The sites at the top level (1-12) are more open to the sun, but down at the end they're shaded by nice trees (13-23). We didn't check out the ones on the other side of Lost Creek (24-41). There are several pull-throughs. The rangers were very helpful, and the one doing the tour of the fort was terrific. Highly suggest doing that, the exhibits are interesting and it's only open during the tour times. - Denise and Glenn

This is a bit of an odd park since the major lake that is a part of the park is actually a couple of miles away. You can get there via a bike/walking trail but we never ventured that far. However, the park where the camping areas are is very nice. We weren't able to choose our spot in advance, but since we arrived before the masses of the weekend we asked the ranger during check-in what his favorite spot is and we scored with #31. It backs up to the creek and had a nice fire ring and table in a cleared area under a beautiful canopy of trees. The trails are worth walking and there are plenty of deer to see. I found them each day in various areas of the park. The history of the park is very interesting and it is worth walking around to the various buildings on the site. The deer walk around there too! - NovarroNomads

Entrance is in town, no gate, roads are easy to navigate. Utilities worked well, water pressure was perfect at 50-55 PSI. Many sites are not level so bring your leveling blocks. Nice shaded picnic tables at sites. There is only one restroom/shower building which has to be shared by all of the campgrounds! Hate to see what this is like on a busy summer day! Lots of interesting historic buildings to explore. Several nice trails. Equestrian camping and lake swimming a few miles away in separate section of park. Groceries and restaurants a couple miles away in town. Quite a bit of traffic noise from the nearby highway and some machinery noise from nearby oil fields. In spite of the negatives, we did enjoy our stay. - BrentB

Easy access from Hwy. 281, about 6 miles from Jacksboro. Gravel roads and sites, with large-medium size gravel. Sites are fairly long, but close together. Grass in between sites, and nice grassy areas to walk dogs. Pretty lake with trail across the dam. Unfortunately, some park residents apparently don't comply with the rules to keep your pet leashed and pick up after them. We enjoyed the exotic animals (deer, etc.) roaming the park in the evenings when they're fed. We stayed here because the State Park was full, and would do so again. - FranM

This is a very unusual Park, as it is also a 20 acre wildlife sanctuary with deer, and a donkey, ambling around the park - not sure if ticks are a problem in this area. The animals are accustomed to people, but I don't know if they want you to feed them. There were ant hills near our trailer, but we only stayed one day so they didn't bother us. Watch out for the mosquitoes. There are other wildlife, such as antelope that are behind an eight foot fence and you can pay an extra discounted fee for a safari tour if you are staying there. As the name implies there is a lake on the property, and you are allowed to fish free of charge when a guest. The sites were relatively level, all back in. Pedestals are at the rear of sites. The access to the park is a gravel road from the highway, less than a mile, but quite dusty. There is a laundry room with an advertised "full bathroom", but the door was locked on both of our attempts. Manager lives in the house at the entry to the park, but not available 24/7. We had considered staying at another nearby campground, and when we mentioned this and then ask for their rate we were told $20. The posted rate is $35 a day - I think she just gave us a price match for the other park. Park is very relaxed concept; no site numbers, no park map, gate is open 24/7. - Maga04

Someone recommended this RV park to us and it was our very first RV experience in 2015. I think it was the middle of summer. We were very disappointed in the fact that the lake was completely dried up. My husband was looking forward to fishing and he was not able to. This is Texas and there are years when there is very little rain, so that accounts for the fact the lake was dry. But fishing is one thing we like to look for when looking for a RV site. The wild animals were amusing and fun to watch. Our site was shaded and that was nice. Will probably not ever return to it. There is nothing to do there. I'm thinking it had a pool, but not sure now. - True Texas

Selma Park is about 4 miles from State Highway 287. As such it is a convenient waystation for us.
1. Park is unkept - grass was knee-high. Sticker-burr grass was everywhere (if you have dogs, don't let them out!). Sites were not level, for the most part, and there was soil erosion in many places that made rig placement difficult.
2. Fire ants everywhere
3. Bathrooms were locked. We don't normally use them, but just fyi.
4. Dump station is a BIG problem. Water wasn't working. Ramp sloped away from the dump hole, so we had to use blocks to level the trailer to get everything out.
5. All the water locations had sign saying non-potable. We had our own, and others posting here said the water was OK, but was well water and as such couldn't be labeled potable. Your call...
6. Host wasn't around -we'll have to mail in our payment because there were no forms, and I won't just leave cash.
The shame of the state of disrepair is that this park has "great bones". The lake is attractive, there's a lot of waterfront, a fishing pier, and sites that are heavily shaded and some that are right out on a peninsula into the lake. This could be a beautiful go-to destination if they would clean it up. - TIN Diesel

21 sites. Amenities: E,W, Dump. Bathroom and shower very dimly lit but clean. Sites with electric have relatively
new 50 amp service. Sites with water are labeled "not potable" but office person said its well water so the city can't label it potable. Site with electric & water are $15 (we had no discount). Verizon 2 bars. Mifi slow. Some sites have shade shelters, no grills. Some sites have tree shade some complete sun. Roads hard packed gravel, sites fairly level. We stayed in site 13, in a 39 ft motor home with well water and50 amp elec. Our Direct satellite TV service excellent. - User2477

Close to home. Nice area on waterfront. Boats pull up to sites. Host is helpful and keeps watch out for others. - Sbates

This was our first stay here and will definitely be back. Didn't want to leave. Everything was so clean. Great laundry facility. She suggested site #64 and it was great. Will request that site every time. We're empty nesters and new at this RV stuff. So glad friends suggested Mitchell's. It's also a great place for kids. I've already suggested it for my son and family. Thanks for a great place. - Mawmo

This is a Huge RV Park. The place was practically empty and they put us on site 60. This site is nice but not any room to put our awning out. There was tree that our door practically hit opening and closing. With all the empty sites not sure why they chose this oneThe grounds are kept spotless but grass is full of sand spurs. Each time we walked our fluffy white dog he picked up so many we spent so much time cutting them out. Other then those couple of things it was a nice place. - Mejohnso01

Would have rated this RV park much higher if we had not had a bad experience with the owner. We did not get the same friendly and helpful service as most of the reviewers seem to have gotten. The owner was rude to our kids and lectured them over and over and us about the wild jackrabbits, to the point of just being just rude. I think that is her personality, but I was not happy with the way we were treated. As others said they have a lot of rules and she felt she needed to tell us most of them instead of letting us read them. We were not happy that we were charged for a full day the day we checked out. We are use to parks that have a check-in time and check-out time. They also charged for each grandchild which made our stay $50 each day. Now on the upside it is a beautiful park, 4 pools, one adult, one family, one volleyball and a splash pool for very small kids. The miniature golf is extra as is their 9 hole golf. Lots for the kids to do, a softball field, remote car track, bike track and some really cute playgrounds. There is a very nice pond for catch and release fishing. My husband caught some large bass. They run a little train for the kids all day long. There are some very cute cabins for those who do not want to camp. Clean restrooms and showers. And a community center for people to rent. They do charge if you have anyone come out to visit while you are there. We did not have anyone, but be warned. All of the park is very clean. From what I hear they do a lot of extra holiday events parades, best decorated RV site, and music entertainment at times. If it had not been for the cost which seemed a little high for us and the owner we would love to return sometime, but don't think we will. - True Texas

My review may not be reflective of how the park typically looks, as there was a nearby pipeline job and the park was packed solid with workers. It was very cramped and you could even hear adjacent campers steps as they walked inside their rv. These guys put in long days and definitely enjoy their beer and outdoor gab sessions after work. Diesel trucks jammed the interior roads. There were dead branches and trash when I pulled into my site. Someone’s sewer connection was bad and the smell was nauseating.
On the plus side, the office people were professional and friendly and they have nice facilities. Also, about 2/3 of the park has great shade (but no OTA reception due to that.) If I had visited another time, my review might have been positive. I found another park several miles away that had spacious sites, OTA reception and peace and quiet. It had a seven-day stay limit, so most campers were just there for an overnight spot. - jdtex

My husband and I are pipeliners and we stayed at Campers Paradise for about two months. During this time, we had an excellent experience. Everyone was helpful and polite. The manager took care of things when I needed my change back, and helped out. This camp just got new WIFI, which was fast and was free for stort-term stays. There was also another WIFI for streaming movies for a fee. Unlike the rest of the campsites near this area, Campers Paradise did not go up on their price for pipeliners, and that was a big plus as all the others did. I would highly recommend this park for people who care about quality. It was really nice this time at the pool since all the locals were no longer being dropped off, and the residents could have a peaceful pool visit. - Corrie Adams

I have been to this park many times on the way to Colorado. However, this time it was different. The restrooms were spotless, the store and reception area were completely remodeled and the owner/receptionist was pleasent and helpful. I realized how much I liked the huge trees and updated look. My wife was very happy with the laundry room as well. - Michael Brooks

This place gave us the creeps. I was in the office paying for a campsite, and my husband came in and said to get my money back...we weren't staying. We both had an uneasy feeling - dogs running loose, an employee who appeared to be stoned. Sites are very close together and unkempt. - HuskerMama

Pulled in before setting up went to use bathroom, walked in bathroom, no a/c, roaches in both sinks. Looked in showers same roaches had been there for some time. Pulled out with out staying. Called Manager with what we saw in both bathrooms, he replied he would check into in a few days, as he was out of town. - Soup

This was just an overnight stay. Not much better than a Walmart parking but it was quiet. It is a funky, small, rundown place with mostly permanent residents. The lady managing the office was very nice. Greeted us as we arrived and said pick a spot then just come up to the office to register. Doubt that we would stay here again unless just for overnight. - Rick & Karen
