Jan 2019 - $3.00
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

A great hidden gem of a park! The staff are very friendly and helpful! Lots of weekend activities for those interested. Most folks hang out to chit chat or play games in the main activity center. The sites were spacious and kept very clean! Even the annuals that are on site had well kept sites. Great views of the lake from various places throughout the campground. Groceries and dining was very close by (within 8 miles). First campground we'd been to within Thousand Trails where we met the campground manager. We would definitely come back here when in the area! - TxDorsey1975

A very large facility, spread over many acres. Gravel/broken asphalt (lots of potholes, uneven paving) roads with a FIVE (5) mph speed made getting the 2+ miles from the gate to campsite a long drive. Campsites are set back from the road a distance, which allows plenty of space for tow vehicle, boat, etc. Replacement of picnic tables is highly recommended, as most units had extremely warped seats and table tops. Located on Bridgeport Lake, water interests can be met. The facility is family-friendly with miniature golf, court sports and spacious grassy areas. There is a pool, but was not yet opened for the season. - SeenAll50

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

We stayed three nights in 40 foot fifth wheel. Love this park! Easy access and convenient to US highway. This is a historic location and they offer daily tours of the old fort area. The campground is accessed via paved road and sites are paved. Sites are very generously spaced and they use a cluster format off the main road to make small communities of RVs. They try to provide each site with a bit of shade and a more secluded area for picnic table and fire ring. Sites 1-4 are full hookup. At this time you cannot make site-specific reservations but I am told that will be coming in 2019. Site 1 is the nicest of the four FHU with nobody on the door side and a really nice picnic area behind the pad. Nice trees on side and back. Deer frequent the area. - Moe and Flo are on the go

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

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

We had a pull-through site on the row closest to the putt-putt course and cabins. The site was wide, not much grass at site, no stickers, location we were at was perfect, but other campers felt the need to go through our site as a short cut about a dozen times a day even though we put our cars in the way to block foot traffic. That is the only negative. The only thing we could think of was to not rent one of the sites and make it a walkway to the other side for pedestrians. The golf course was a great par 3 course and the guys golfed 36 holes the day it was cool. We stayed here on Memorial Day weekend and the park was packed! They said they only had one cabin available. 3 pools are great, one just for adults is a definite plus. Putt-putt course was fun, challenging, cheap and well thought out. On Sunday evening, they had Terry E., an Elvis Impersonator who was fun, entertaining, and had us all singing along. They had some benches, and plenty of space under the trees at the stage to watch the show. Would stay there again when it was cooler and not on a national holiday. Great fenced in doggie park. We had a problem with a plug at our site and they sent someone right out to replace it the same day. Trash pickup was twice a day at each site. It was very clean and we had lots to do for adults and kids. Each pull-through had a charcoal or wood grill for cooking. - candivan57

I have reviewed this campground previously, but feel compelled to again leave a review, for the purpose of letting others know that this RV park continues to be "at the top of its game". I have never encountered owners/operators of an RV park that care more and work harder at keeping their facility in top notch condition. We have camped here a few times each year for the past few years, and each time we go back, I notice something else that they have done, as far as installing something new or improving something existing. I have always enjoyed myself at Mitchell RV Resort, and really do appreciate that Doris and Kevin go out of their way to make sure that everything is as good as it can be, and that everyone is enjoying themselves. I give them major credit for being willing to try new events, and for working so hard to put on the many events that they hold throughout the year. I just love that this place has "something for everyone." The atmosphere feels as "laid back" and safe as any campground I have ever stayed in. I said in a previous review that they have the best wifi of any RV park I have been in, and that still holds true. The number of "networks available" is enough that they don't all fit on one screen when "searching for a network to connect to". There is just so much to like about Mitchell RV Resort, and I always look forward to going back. This review is "glowingly-positive", I know that. I don't work there, and am not affiliated with them at all. I just really like to "get the word out" to fellow campers when I come across such a top notch campground. - KeystoneTT

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

We overnighted in a 5th wheel. Per the gentleman at the desk, ownership has recently changed. They are renovating the office so things were under construction. There appears to be 2 sections in the park, one with trees and secluded, the other (where we were) right on the frontage road by the freeway. The space was easy to get into (pull through) but there was quite a bit of freeway noise. The site was a little off level. They did have a few things in the little office store, including ice, which we needed. They gave a Good Sam discount and offered an addition discount because I'm a Vet. We would stay again for an overnight stop. - Motorcyclekelly

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

This park was right off the highway which was perfect for me as I was merely looking for a place to pull off and continue driving the next morning. Rate was either $18 or 20 with my Good Sam discount. My site was a pull thru which the owner said they leave available for people like myself. Site wasn't very level and had to put blocks under one side. Not bad but just enough that I would probably notice during the night. Grass was in pretty bad need of cutting but that didn't bother me in the least. Trains did run by right next to the campground pretty often so bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. Bring ear plugs if train noise bothers you at night. Power pedestal was easily accessible. Nearest restaurants several miles away so consider that when ready to eat. That said, I would stay here again if I ever pass back through. - rcknrbn

Easy access off 287, relatively flat sites and good power and water. The staff here could not be nicer or more welcoming and even went so far as to run up to the cafe and collect our dinners for us as we were tired. You can hear the road traffic at night but it was not an issue. We'll stay here again as it's a great one night layover. - D and PK

We stayed one night at this park while traveling to a destination. The park was not fancy but it was nice and fulfilled our needs. Our site was level enough that we didn't need to unhook our truck from our fifth wheel. Little restaurant close by could walk to. Easy on and off entry from road. Convenient. The park could use a little work but we would stay again and would recommend it for a one night stay. - Bax
