I struggled with rather to rate the park 3 or 4 stars. Went with 3 because there are no showers, restrooms, pool. Also no picnic table or fire ring. There is a small laundry room. I didn’t go in so not sure what’s in it. The sites are plenty long. And there is a dog area. Very nice on the phone. There is a plastic box on the laundry building where you enter. You pick up you registration package there. Then you return with payment and put it in the drop box. Appears to be a lot of seasonal/ long term campers. Need to make reservations in advance. We were only able to get two nights. - Patricia57

This is actually a really nice park. Lots of room, great location, great internet. The only reason for -1 star is that there was quite a bit of mud that was hard to avoid. The sites and roads are gravel. There are no restroom or shower facilities. This is a relatively new park and it appears that they are working to expand it. Given the location and how nice it is I believe that the issues will be fixed in the future. The location is literally an old plantation, big house and all. - MDMS

This is a terrible RV park. Do not stay here unless absolutely necessary. The park is very small and the RV's are crammed in and very close to one another. The park is located directly adjacent to a very busy highway so traffic noise is constant. The park manager onsite is very nice and helpful however he has no control over the park itself. We were visiting family in the area on a holiday weekend so we were stuck. Monthly fees are about $500 a month and we were charged $50 a night!!! Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else. - Bakersfish

Though this park doesn't have laundry or restrooms available, it has been a wonderful place to stay! The staff are very friendly and more than willing to help you out if you need it. There are over 100 sites here, and it seems to be about 50/50 RVs to Manufactured Homes. There is a laundromat less than a mile away, and several grocery stores to choose from. This is located right in the middle of town, but the road noise is not bad at all. There are mostly families living here and everyone has been very friendly and welcoming. There is weekly trash & recycling pickup provided by the city. A pretty quiet place overall. Monthly rent is $375 and electric is metered. There is on-site propane refill available. - TxDorsey1975

Parking lot with RV spots marked in paint. Back in with very large building behind. Does not block satellite. Good power and water. No sewer or dump. You are given a card that lets you into the patio area that includes the pool, showers and restrooms. There was something going on every night we were there. Lounge was open nightly until 10 or 11 pm. Quiet even thought main street was not far away but had buildings in between. There was a Fire Station across the street, but I didn't notice or care after retiring after 40 years of fire service. Location was close to every where we wanted in Dallas. Must be Elks Member to camp. - Vault

This place is, well, bad. I really wanted to like it, but it's incredibly expensive, and it's very trashy. The amount of potholes is no joke - at first we thought, whatever, it's just the road, but if you stay a couple days and do errands, or anything like that, you'll absolutely hate it by the end. It's also expensive for what it is with only one really awful dump site. Fences were broken down, there were huge pieces of concrete that had fallen into the lake, it was... weird. It was as though it had never been taken care of, ever. Everything was dead since we visited in January, but even so there were weeds taking over everything. It felt like a trailer park, not a COE for 30 bucks a night. With so many other options close by, check something else out and avoid this. Don't go here. Don't. - howingaround

I was not optimistic about our visit here based on some of the past reviews. However, there is much to recommend here and I think it would be a shame not to visit this facility based on some of the negative reviews. The spaces provided are large, mostly level with asphalt driveways and covered picnic table. Backing in our 39ft motorhome was very easy. Electric hookup was in good shape as was the water connection. One note, there is info on the electric box that indicates that 40 amp is the max delivered from the stand in any combination of connections. But that proved plenty for two ac's and the fridge, lights and electronics used over the course of the weekend. Grass was recently mowed and clippings evidenced some fairly tall grass prior to mowing. This was Memorial Day weekend and the facility was full, but things were relatively quiet and the lake had plenty of room for more watercraft. There was a new restroom/shower facility near our #10 slip and, though I did not use it, my wife said it was very clean and functional. The best entry road is Forest Ross Rd and it is not in very good shape - slow speed and evasive maneuvers are the order of the day. Once in the park, road surfaces are in much better shape. A retaining wall adjacent to the shore is the victim of high water elevations that weren't expected to ever occur again, or so it was claimed by the "experts". Repair will be costly and time consuming and it won't happen for some time, I'm sure, but it's more of a cosmetic issue and will not prevent you from enjoying the lake. I don't know if it was due to the holiday, but we saw regular rounds being made by park rangers and the Wylie PD, so we felt really secure and there was absolutely no monkey business. All I can say is, go and have a good time. - Shifting Gears

I almost didn't try this park because of negative reviews. I found it to be just fine and would stay again. Spacious, level sites with crushed gray rock to back into. If it isn't exactly level; try moving 2-3 ft in the driveway. A lot of the sites are in direct sun; but many have some partial shade. The grass had been cut fairly recently. I imagine they use a bush hog due to the size of the property so it probably will never be like your front yard at home. They don't have that many campsites considering the size of the property which may affect their budgeting for maintenance. Don't let gps bring you in by the dam if coming from the east because that is a bumpy road. The best route is coming in by Wal-Mart. There are pot holes the last 100 yds before the guard shack. Not as pristine as other COE campgrounds but it is functional and clean. The row of sites nearest the water have nice views of the lake without being lakefront. In mid-October; bugs weren't really a problem except for some spiders building webs on the covered tables. My biggest knock on the park is the closed gate at 10pm. You can't watch an evening sporting event in Dallas and get back in time. - msmith7113

Quiet. Trash picked up daily. Safe and gated. Beautiful setting. Didn't mind not having WiFi or laundry facilities with the beautiful camp setting. Whatever issues this park may have had in the past, as of April 2018, it's fantastic. - TNorton

There has been recent flooding, but the rest of the campgrounds have been neglected. Pull thru sites were not accessible due to tree branches hanging too low. Sites looked junky. Did not stay, kept driving. - Ilona

We actually enjoy our time at Collin Park - the area is always well kept and trash free and is nice and quiet. We don't use the shower or bathroom facilities, but I see people in an out when we stay. Management is very thorough with inspection, and as stated below, enforce certain things like 1 vehicle backed in, in front of your rig. Because of space, if more than one vehicle were allowed on the campsite, it would be chaotic getting in and out of the slips...and if you give an inch, some will take a mile. I am an advocate for this rule! There are plenty of additional parking spots near the marina (1-minute walk from the sites.) The management team has been nothing but friendly with us the 2-3 times we have stayed with them - in fact, we missed the rule about no fire pits, and brought one with us during our first stay. They said something when we checked out - very nice about it, just a reminder not to bring it next time. If you are looking for a nice, serene spot to enjoy camping with your family, this is a great option! - afrazier206

Great park! Full hookups (30A/15A) Great views of the lake. Quiet. Friendly staff. Word of warning: unless you REALLY like the heat, avoid sites 2,3 5 and I think 6. They are the closest to the lake and have gorgeous view, but no shade. There are plenty of other sites that are shady with easy access to the water. Boaters and fishers paradise. Boat Ramps in the park, and there is lots of beaching opportunities to make the boat easy access. - Travels with Tex

My wife and I needed an RV site near Allen, TX for a few days. I found this COE park and decided to give it a try. The arrival process was easy and went as hoped. The park appears to be an older one, but with charm. The interior roads are in need of repair as are at least some of the restroom/bath facilities. The grass needed mowing, although some of it was mowed during our stay. To the park's defense, the DFW area has received a great deal of rain over the last month or so, so that probably explains the tall grass. All the utilities functioned perfectly and were easy to access and hook up to. - jnmking

A very good shady park and right on the lake. Closes during winter months which I did not like. The only negative is there are two or three sites people can reserve spaces through and the communication seems to be a little outdated. I had to move every 4-5 days and they have a 14 day max to stay. - Packerwood

This park is in dire need of a facelift. The restrooms look like they are about to fall in and should’ve been condemned a couple of summers ago. The grass doesn’t get mowed until it’s knee high, so there are large piles of cut grass that look like it’s ready to be bailed. The sites are un-level. I had to set the nose on the ground in order to get level front to back and my rig is only 25 foot long.
The lake shore is strewn with trash: everything from diapers to rubber gloves to 10,000 yards of monofilament. Erosion has eaten back the shore to the point that several of the day-use picnic tables have literally fallen down onto the beach.
On the positive side, our site was on top of the hill and we had a great view of the lake. We also picked up 71 channels on our antenna and had excellent AT&T cell phone reception. The Park staff were great and very friendly and helpful. I just think that they are not given the budget to maintain this place properly. - GoHorns!

Beautiful setting with sites widely spaced. Most sites in the loop we stayed in were not very level. Many had partial shade. Tables sheltered with grill and fire pit. Roads and site paving are deteriorating, as is the exterior of the restroom/shower building. However the inside was spotless and the shower was excellent. - MBAustin

Complete dump. Very poorly maintained campground. The roads and sites are worn and uneven. Bathrooms might as well be condemned given the condition. Attendants were very friendly, but everything else was embarrassing. Lavon is a very pretty lake, but good luck enjoying it. - jdtTX

Do not arrive after the office closes. Fortunately we didn't as the site we had been assigned in advance was worse than bad. No electricity on a full hook-up site. The water hookup was flooded. Many long-term stays in park. Probably the noisiest park we have ever been in. Pass this park by unless you need to stay close to north Dallas. - gene a

The only good thing about this park was a place to stay while visiting my daughter and grandchildren. Take your own toilet paper as none is ever in the restrooms and do not know if or when they are cleaned, the showers are just big enough to turn around in barely. People take their dogs into the bathrooms and some are not on leash . This is the only park close to where I needed to be that had any sites or I would not have stayed here. - possumtrotky

Rate reflected two-week stay. This is the ONLY RV park in Plano, or we probably would have gone somewhere else. We were here to visit our son, so not much choice (other campers said the same thing). It is a pretty run-down camper / mobilehome park right along a frontage road next to the very busy freeway. People around you are nice and pretty much keep to themselves, but the place gives you second thoughts about staying there. We did stay the two weeks, and had no problems at all, so it wasn't as bad as it "looked". - MarieB
