I have stayed out here before. Just needed to stay a short time. I drove in and found the park in deplorable condition. There were old junky trailers everywhere. Trash and junk stacked everywhere. After trying to call a few weeks, unable to reach anyone because they won't call you back. We left. It really was that bad. - J59T

This is a gravel parking lot with hook ups. It's cheap and the 10 dollar rate reflects the monthly rate. They charge $100 for the week or $20 a day. Quite a few long time residents. Their hours that they conduct "business" leave a bit to be desired. - J59T

Website is deceiving, park has been open for about 2 years and they have made NO improvements. There are no laundry, shower or restroom facilities. - J59T

This is a great little COE. We had a back in site on the water that accommodated our 41ft 5th wheel, truck and a small SUV. Electric and water services were fine. No sewer connections but. It a big deal for a short stay. It's about 10 minutes or less off of I45. Very quite. - OpenRoadJedi

Nice Park on Lake Bardwell near Ennis, TX. One of the bathhouses was closed for repairs. - Alicenpete

This is the most poorly maintained COE we have stayed at. Our site was fine but had not been mowed in quite some time. Entry was unmanicured and we are not usually very picky, but this was very noticeable and out of character from our COE experience. - pwdorris

As in many RV parks around Dallas the park tenants here are for the most part are transient workers. Some of their campers made us shudder with the creeps, for example aged FEMA trailers with all the windows covered with foil. The upside of sharing a campground with workers is that they go to work, on weekdays the park empties out by 7 AM and it's very quiet. All sites are "back in" but most are nice and wide, even a novice RVer won't have a problem, just avoid the few sites that sit at awkward angles. They do allow you to drive down and pick any site you want, set up and then report back to the office. Solid and fairly level concrete pads and wide concrete roads. Clean 50 amp service, good sewer hook up. I disagree with an earlier post there's very limited shade available. Get used to train noise, two railways cut through town, and one is just 500 yards over the creek from the park. The trains run night and day and it will take a bit of getting used to the whistles through the night but you do become accustomed to the noise and the gentle vibrations. We stayed here two months and felt welcome and safe. The cost was very reasonable (plus electricity) the owners leave you alone. Across the creek sits a wonderful 7 3/4 mile long hike and bike path we recommend you walk the North path, it follows the Creek for 1 3/4 miles and is very pleasant and the view varies. The South path goes for 6 miles and is not nearly as varied in scenery. Now about the rental apartments built by the storage and RV park owner. You will be amused driving by the little ghetto of transformed storage units, these people are living in little box's with no sanitation, they use communal men's and ladies' showers and washrooms and the dress of choice most days is pajama's and furry slippers, Howard Hughes would be proud. Don't worry, they keep to themselves. - Bri & Max

Maneuvering is very easy, the sites are relatively level, all the hookups work, the dump station is easy to use and even in the Texas heat, there was enough shade to keep things reasonable. This is a campground I will always return to. - tbax46

This is a nice park close enough to the Dallas area for a weekend getaway. We stayed for two nights, and the park was nice and quiet. There is not much to do there, but it is a great place to get away if that is what you are looking for. - Aggiepi

There are 3 parks at Bardwell Lake available for camping. We camped at Mott Park and had a nice lakefront site, which we were able to select online. Even though it was a holiday weekend, the spaces are far enough apart that it did not seem crowded or noisy. Some sites require a lot of leveling, and some are 30-amp only, but the reservation system will tell you this. This is a no-frills park, but the scenery is lovely and a perfect getaway if you want to just get out of town, enjoy nature, and relax. - Lucydog

Restricted height clearance from overgrown trees. Bathrooms/showers need a complete remodel. No cable TV or high speed Internet access. TV reception fair, channels very limited.
Wireless signal strength issues. Many cluttered lots.
Sites need to reworked. Many old and dirty campers in various states of disrepair.
Trash dumpsters overflowing, smelly and unlit. Dark.
Covered dish events would be nice. A pool and clubhouses too.
Needs upgrades everywhere. - rvpro290

Location of this park is terrific, easy access to Dallas and the gentleman that checked us in was very polite. However, the filthy bathrooms ruined our visit. Smoky with cigarette butts in the sinks and ashtrays in toilet stalls. Showers had no hooks or bench, forcing us to dress right out in the bathroom. Cold & hot water faucets were switched around. Pull through sites had just enough room for RV, but trees needed trimming to allow for easier access. A vehicle parked by the bathroom made driving out of our site difficult. We would Not recommend this park. - Twilight

We stayed in the park for 2 and a half weeks. At first it was ok, however as the week passed, the night manager became rude and intolerable. The rules state that quiet time is 9pm to 8am. The night manager (who was usually intoxicated) would be yelling across the park or talking extremely loud knowing that people had to be up early the next morning for work. He also stuck his neighbor's water hose down his toilet to clean out his black water tank. Most of the people in the park are locals. The managers, Joe and Shari are very kind are doing the best they can. It's too bad their help lacks in customer service. - The Green Monster

One of the closest parks to Dallas- Very basic. 98% longterm folks. No one on site. We found our site, leveled out and found only 30 amp worked at our site. - Tredguy

The owner is very rude and unprofessional. Had a problem with the electrical hookup. He was always very rude every time I called about it and it took over a week to fix. My kid had her sister in law staying temporary with her. He didn't like that. So he kicked her out and kept her money for absolutely no reason. If you have small kids or elderly people this is not the place for you. There are 4 very dangerous ponds where the banks go straight down at a 45 degree angle that are not fenced in or guarded. Very old ghetto trailers everywhere with junk piled underneath them. Code enforcement is being called for the little kid's safety living there now and all the dangerous illegal wiring. Very unsafe place to stay even for one day. I have built million dollar commercial properties. This one is the worst. Its too bad I can't give zero stars. - David-Rogers

Not a destination park. No showers, bath house or laundry. Office not manned. You leave your money in an envelope in a box. Raining when we arrived and the site was so muddy, our RV and truck left ruts. We paid the weekly rate of $135. - singpj

We were warned about the ant problem on our arrival so I put a natural insecticide down around d the jacks and tires. It must have worked for two days. But on the third day, after a full day at the Texas State Fair we came back to an inundated MH with crazy ants. I had to go to a 24 hour Walmart for Home Defense and send the grand kid home in the middle of the night so we could rid the MH of ants. I never seen them on the jacks, tires or lower compartments but they seemed to be everywhere in the living area. How they got in is a mystery. Home Defense and/or Devin dust is necessary! We have since been told this is a years old problem at Cedar Hill S.P., so it is off our list of places to return to. And that is a shame since it was beautiful outside and close to Dallas and the grandson. - jlogco1978

This park should be labeled a bio-hazard and closed down until the problem is solved. It is overrun with Argentine ants which are everywhere. They are on your picnic tables, benches, RV pads and everywhere else. Even though we sprinkled Sevin dust all around our trailer, we woke up with ants everywhere inside the trailer. In the beds, counters, walls, sinks, you name it. Argentine ants are an invasive species with no natural control. We hated to use insecticides in the trailer, but we used Sevin dust inside, Raid ant spray and diatomaceous earth. It was horrible. It was the first day of our trip and we thought it was over, but where to go? Certainly not home where we could transport this biological nightmare. The thought of our house being overrun with these creatures was too much. We got out of that park immediately and continued with our trip. I sincerely apologize for transporting an invasive species around the country. With continued the use of Raid and Sevin dust and we beat them back after a few days. Its been a week since we got home and have not seen them. We can pray that we got them all. It was a nightmarish start to our trip. - LouVZ
