Apr 2016 - $30.00
We stayed for month & our rate was $425 which included electric. The roads are paved, as are all RV sites. Most sites are pull through, which is a plus.
We did not give this park good reviews because management does not enforce their rules. Long term residents litter the sites with their cigarettes. Neighbor continued throwing cigarette butts out her window, onto our lawn, despite being asked by management to stop.
Employees were argumentive & confrontational when asked not mow around our truck until we could move it.
Our truck was broken into & our weapon was stolen & our neighbor had their all their tools stolen as well.
There are NO amenities @ this park. No restrooms, showers laundry, etc.
Maintanence sprayed lawn killer on lawn & our water & electric lines.
Sewage came up through their sewer line, coating lawn on our site.
Sites close enough to one another, that we could not put our awning out.
This park seems to be mostly comprised of long term residents, who still work.
Unlikely we would stay here again. - Susan Pell

OK for overnight only. No cable, no WiFi, no discounts. Very narrow sites. Sign in at adjacent liquor store. Stayed because all the others in the area were full. Would pass on this park in the future. - twocoots

I pulled into this RV park late in the day in order to avoid an approaching storm. It is conveniently located just off I35W. While it did have nice long, level concrete pull-through sites, the lack of WiFi was a big disappointment for me. There are also a lot of long-term residents in the park, and some of their sites could definitely be a little neater. Lack of restrooms and showers may be a factor to some. I would only likely stop here again if there were no other options. - Phaeton40AH

We stayed a week here. Site B, back in level gravel. Long enough for our 30ft TT and truck. the pool was not ready for the season. The laundry facilities where in clean working order, reasonably priced. We would stay here again when in the area. - Lorie Lee Spark2skip
May 2017 - $30.00
No one in office to help. Pool closed. No restrooms, showers. Difficult to get in parking spot because of cars parked in front of spots. Had problems with electric hook up because of a breaker. Worst part of stay was a ROOSTER that crowed every morning at 5 a.m. Not anything like ad on web site! - SharonKay

First, the positive, location to nearby shopping & restaurants is good. Their web site lists a climate controlled exercise room, scenic picnic sites, free wi-fi, swimming pool. They have a pool, it needed some attention. There is no exercise room, no public restrooms, picnic sites consist of a couple tables, watch out for noxious weeds & don't walk your dog in the area or you'll be picking stickers out of their feet. Wi-fi is poor to non existent. Some sites are so close you wouldn't be able to extend slides. Low hanging branches need to be trimmed. Office is closed on weekends, posted hours don't seem to be accurate either. Routine maintenance & updates are so lacking I don't know how they pass any sort of inspection. All sites are back in, as close as some sites are to one another maneuvering a big rig into one could be a challenge. This would be a good place to open a real rv park. - G Host

This privately owned campground is actually located on and is a part of, a working buffalo conservation ranch! Yes, you read that right. The owner is a sweet lady, who absolutely has your best interests at heart. She is exceptionally helpful and kindhearted. Now, the park, itself, is a no-frills park. There are gravel roads and the park has some shade trees, as well as shaded picnic tables down the middle of the row. The sites are gravel and grass, and there are NO amenities to speak of. But there are buffalo! There is a lovely fishing pond, and you are more than welcome to drown a worm, no charge, no license required. There are several buildings on the property, which we learned belong to a hotel and event venue. There's a rock waterfall, goldfish pond, gazebo and some rooms that I suppose you could rent if you could reach the manager of the hotel/venue. The buffalo are not friendly, and it is NOT recommended that you encourage them to come any closer than they do normally. They are just there for your viewing pleasure. There is no park WiFi provided, but our Verizon phones and JetPack worked just fine. Over the air TV was sparse, but the signal was strong and the pictures clear. CBS & FOX seemed to be the only channels airing current programs. - kcdc989

Went here when the price was reduced for the "off" season. A nice park but we have been to much nicer and far less expensive parks. $65 on season is ridiculous. It is clean and the senior citizen staff attentive. Over priced and nothing special. I believe this city owned park on a Corps of Engineers park takes advantage of its central Dallas/Fort Worth to overcharge customers. - artgpo

We camped here for the Inaugural Dickies 500 NASCAR race in November 2005. We weren't expecting much and we weren't disappointed. Shower room is big; we didn't use it but lots of folks did and we didn't hear anyone complain about it. Grocery concession run by Albertson's with typically high prices for an event such as this. Ice was $5 per bag and it half-melted before reaching the trailer. Church services on Sunday morning before the race and several other activities available in campground area. No golf carts allowed, no gasoline-powered cycles or ATVs allowed. No motorcycles allowed in campground areas. If you don't have a bike, you walk everywhere. The big draw is the NASCAR race. Camping is convenient to the track so there's no three-hour wait in traffic to get to the race. Keep in mind although it's Ft. Worth, it's technically the desert; it's hot during the day, even in November when we stayed here, and cold at night. No quiet hours: it's pretty much a 24-hour tailgate party. Sites are 20'x50' but there's no limit on the number of RVs and vehicles that can be crammed into each site. The site on the awning side of our trailer had two small travel trailers and a Class A on it. Speedway offers fresh water fill-ups and honey wagon service "for a nominal fee". We didn't fill our waste tanks, and our fresh water tank had more than enough water for the weekend, so we didn't use either service and we can't give the cost. - Rick&maribethinMS

This is a beautiful park. It is very well maintained. We lived here for a year while we finished working. The sites are gravel and most have a concrete patio. Our site (96) was large with lots of grassy area. Sites are pretty level side to side but we had to raise our front pretty high to be level front to back. Nice dog park as well. We loved our stay here and look forward to coming back. - Thomas Crincic

Park well kept. Folks constantly cleaning up. Pool added about 3 years ago which has made a big difference. Pet bags and trash containers throughout park. Nice dog park. Even nicer grass walk down center. Downs are no cable tv and no picnic tables at sites and constant speed bumps - awesum21

We booked this stay based on the Good Sam rating of 10/10/10. Having visited many other 10/10/10 parks, we were very disappointed. The park obviously hasn't been rated in years. This is nothing more than a trailer park with 98% long-term residents. There are tremendously huge speed bumps that we took very slowly, yet they still managed to knock our refrigerator out of its space. The trash is a site by site pickup from Waste Management (just like a mobile home park - think "beep beep beep" early in the morning). Many of the sites are highly unlevel and not appropriate for large motorhomes. Fortunately, they did accommodate us with a level site. All sites are back-in, no pull thrus are available. This park is 100% pre-pay in advance, regardless of when you make the reservation. We encountered two work campers during our stay: one was nice, the other arrogant and rude. With all the negatives of the park, the nearly foot tall speed bumps make this a "one and done" for us. - dad2aprincess

We live 5 minutes from this park and yet, feel like we are "getting away". It has a national park feel to it even being small, with the tall trees and spacious sites. Walking trail for scenic hikes. Some sites are not suited for larger RVs, so make sure of the size before reserving. Most are level but a few are long but not level for longer rigs. We have stayed at various sites and all are on the lake with beautiful views of wildlife and the water. Interior sites are very shaded and higher so still have views of the water. 30/50amp and good water pressure. Online reservations are available with a convenience fee and payment is made in full at time of reservation. Gated entry is manned by camp hosts during business hours -with code for late entry. Guests are welcome and plenty of parking. Day use area has access to the camping area. Dump station can hold 2 rigs at once but only 1 washout hose. - 4Texans

Very nice city of Highland Village campground. Right on Lake Lewisville with boat ramp picnic areas etc. 30/50 amp and water mostly backin gravel sites. Fire pits, grills and tables at all sites, many directly on the lake. There is a dump station though in an awkward place from the campsites. Best to dump and then hook up toad. Longer motorhomes may have some trouble getting level but there are several level sites. Gate locks early but you have an access code. It is an oasis right in the middle of the city, but you would never know it. Would get higher rating with sewer of course. - teepee51

Very friendly employees. Park is clean and located right on Lake Lewisville. Majority of sites are shaded at least part of the day. Many sites back up to the lake with plenty of space between sites. Plenty of grass to enjoy. Major stores within a few miles. This is a city run park. To make a reservation you have to get an ID and PW from the city web site. Camping rate for city resident is $25.00, non-resident $35.00, but if you are a senior you get a discount but you have to ask for it when you check-in and they will reimburse your account. - 1texan

Absolutely the worst place we have ever stayed. Horrible entrance off of Highway 114. Steep and dangerous when turning out of park due to being in the middle of a curve. Also, you cannot turn left out of the park, you have to go 1/2 mile East and U-turn back west. If there is any rain, the road from the highway to the park entrance is MUD. The grass was approximately a foot tall, guess the owners never mow here. Saw a tenant across the park mow their own grass. We stayed here for two weeks because I was working in the Decatur, TX area and nothing else was available. The laundry had 1 washer and 1 dryer. Used it once and the water smelled like raw sewage, it was truly bad. Very close to train tracks and they are well traveled even at night. Had a drunken idiot in the park that had a semi truck horn or train horn mounted in his personal pickup truck. He thought it was cute to honk back at the train every time one was honking at the nearby crossing. I called the owners (at 10:45pm) to complain about the noise (honking back at the trains and playing stereo loud late at night). They said they would make a phone call and get it fixed. They must have told him, "The new guy with wife and kids doesn't appreciate the noise," because two days later, in his drunken state, again, he came to talk to me about my complaint. After a 30 minute conversation with the drunken idiot I guess all was well. Most people here seem to be workers, but you rarely see anyone outside. The partiers are the only ones outside and they are here every evening. No driving range that I have seen as advertised on the website. Definitely not a "family friendly" RV park, in my opinion. Oh, there was a landscaping business (or something of the nature) bordering the RV park at the North end. It looked like a landfill, not a business. No trees at all, therefore no shade. No restrooms or showers. Not a single thing good to say about the place. - CAMPEROKIE

We specifically noted we needed a pull-through spot since we have a toy hauler. The owners (husband and wife) assured us there would be one, but there wasn't. We backed into one of the few spots remaining and had to be pulled out of the mud due to the weekend rains. The spots are tight, pet droppings abound and the driveway off of the highway has a very sudden steep rise with somewhat of a blind exit. The owners were very nice and did not charge us for our stay. - BBBT

Odd hours for an RV park. Closed Sundays. Need to level your RV probably. Full timers are in separate area. Showers are not private. Would look for an alternative place next time - MichaelPer115

We made our reservations online, via their website, but when we found ourselves needing to adjust the dates, we were told that was not possible, because "someone might have tried to reserve, but couldn't." Now, we could extend our stay, to include our original night, plus the other 3, but we could not alter our one night stay. OK, we found other arrangements, and we arrived, on time, on the date of our original reservation. Only to find, the office CLOSED and not a soul in sight. Nor was there any info packet or map for us. I had received an email reminder about our upcoming stay, and luckily, it had a site number included. It also mentioned that site number was subject to change and there would be an info packet waiting for us. Nope, that was not the case. We managed to find our way up to our assigned site and get in it with no problem. The restroom doors are locked, and we do not have a code. There is WiFi, but we did not receive any password or login information. The site is wide, and pull-through, as promised. There appear to be a lot of permanent residents, but the park is neat and clean. Our Verizon phones and JetPack worked fine and over the air TV was clear, but sparse on current programming. CBS & FOX appear to be the only thing current. There are 2 dog run areas, but no seating or trash can in either one. The single dumpster we found is located near the entrance of the park, by the office. There are a couple of alpacas onsite, but they don't appear to be all that interested in coming to get petted. The pool is clean, but tiny. - kcdc989

Great park! Very neat and clean. Good sized sites with picnic table and grassy area. Nice pool. Lots of long term folks but very tidy. Sweet couple managing the facility. Feeding and watching the alpacas lots of fun. Good WiFi and cable. If you have trouble getting connected to WiFi, allow pop ups, then reboot computer - rcf

We have stayed at Destiny RV Park many times in the past and look forward to returning. However, the owner has decided to change the park to "Long-term only". What this means is that nightly or weekly spaces will only be available if available on day of arrival. However, if one needs a space for a month or more, this is the place to call and either get on the waiting list or find a space. This is still a very nice park that provides easy access to north Texas, Dallas, and Fort Worth. The nightly above is prorated from the monthly rate. We will, and are looking forward to, returning to Destiny RV Park again. - geo-gypsy

Unlevel lots, hard to navigate with larger rigs. Confusing entry. Near I-35, Very few spaces for traveling rigs. Poor, haughty service. Would not stay here again. - DustyBob

This park is quite old and has a lot of long-term residents but the staff more than make up for any shortcomings. They are wonderful. Very helpful and welcoming. The weather turned unusually cold so we didn't go to the race track as much as we would have. Everything you could need just down the freeway. The car wash out front is a nice touch when you come off the road. - Danelon
