The parks roads in bad shape, camping sites also need repairs. The grass was high. - Joceil

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

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
Jun 2017 - $8.00
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

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

We have a 35 ft. Motorhome and the first site we were assigned to was on the side of a hill and no way to get the front of the rig high enough to level. Second site was a bit better. Ant problem was horrible....you have to put down powdered Sevin all around any object that touches the ground...that leads to it being tracked into your RV. They charge a camping fee...and a daily fee per each person in your party. One night we had friends pick us up for dinner. The person at the gate didn't charge them to come in to pick us up...but returning from dinner...new crew at the gate and they wouldn't let them in to drop us off without paying a $7 entry fee. So stupid! We will never come back. Way too much $$$ for so little! - Katnap

Texas state park. Large park with numerous hiking trails. - Josh_Shari E
Oct 2018 - $25.00
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

second stay at this park. very convenient to Mansfield and DFW area. nice clean park. - rockhill
Oct 2019 - $42.00
We stayed about 2 1/2 weeks
Pros: nice laundry and shower facilities, nice shop and ranch house, playground and pool, had activities and breakfasts, pleasant people all around, convenient location
Cons: 90% or so of the park appears long-term. Some sites cluttered and run down looking, though most are well cared for. Loud at night and early morning with people driving by. Can faintly hear hwy traffic. Sites are very close together. My dog picked up fleas somewhere on premises, had to treat. Pull through spots are alternating directions so your doors face someone else’s and your slide windows face someone else’s. - khogan

Very nice park and location, although still new and making improvements, still very nice. Great location between Dallas and Fort Worth. Employee were very pleasant. Still need better registration parking for unhooking tow. Inter roads need more gravel. All utilities worked nicely. Scored 9 due to Cable TV and Wifi do not work. - P-Albert

We've been here over a month and have decided to stay full time, as we LOVE it here. Beautiful salt water pool just opened up, clubhouse coming soon, management keeps the riff-raff away so it is so peaceful here. We couldn't be happier... - Anita Lucas

First, the price I've listed is for a weeks stay and does not include the charge for electric we have used while here. We stayed here a week, although this park is still undergoing a lot of construction. There are no bathrooms or showers in the area of the park in which we are located, however there are showers and laundry at the far end of the park. We are situated in front of the new clubhouse and pool which are both still under construction. The pool construction has proven to be a source of interest to those of us that have never seen one built. The roads are loose pea gravel over blacktop and the intended grassy areas between the sites are somewhat lower than the sites. Because of all the torrential rain here recently, they are primarily weeds and mud. However, even with all the rain the last few days, the roads and sites themselves drained well, but all that water caught in the areas between the sites. But the grassy areas between the sites have all dried up over the last few days. The sites are fairly level, and are comprised of pea gravel over some blacktop. They are easy to navigate into, and most are long enough to accommodate our 44 foot class A with ample room to park our toad. The one issue which concerned me is the location of the patio area and utilities. The setup did not make sense to me. The patios areas, with nice metal picnic tables, are situated in the front of the sites, and the utilities (electric, water, and sewer pipes) sit at the back of the sites. In our case, with a large class A, we had over 20' of sewer hose out and the patio area was still 15 to 20 feet in front of our coach, far from our awnings or any shade. I did speak with the park owner and he has said they would be enlarging the patio areas toward the back of the sites to enable a variety of rigs to move the picnic tables under their awnings. The park's WiFi was pretty fast, the power was stable, and the park was a quiet place to stay. - glenstmary

Wonderful COE city operated park and RV campground. On-line reservation at Recreation.gov. Price for COE senior $18 plus $3 daily park fee. Paved roads with level paved back in sites with mostly W&E sites and only a few full hook up sites. Site widely spaced. Lots of large trees and grass between sites and a lake with fishing and boat rentals. Nice small store and outdoor pool. Elec and water pressure good. Good TV antenna signal. 4 bar and 4G Verizon signal. Only a few sites good for satellite due to tress. Requested one with reservation. No Wi-Fi at sites. Good security and office staff friendly and helpful. Park clean and well maintained Will stay there again. Also good Sam park. - Pepper Dan

We stayed at Loyd Park in a travel trailer for a few days over Spring Break. We stayed in site 92. It was a good distance from our neighbors, and would be very shady in the summer or spring. It was very busy over Spring Break, and it was cold and a little muddy on the trails. Our 8 year old grandkids were a little disappointed in the geocaches, because there weren't any trinkets to exchange. But they do have a great playgound. Overall, this is a great park and we will be back. - kanela

We had a site on the lake. Nice views, would be great for fishing but not swimming. It rained the whole weekend we were there so we didn't do any exploring of the park. The staff was nice and the location is good. (we were there for a seminar in FW) The side would have been shaded and the picnic covers where very nice. Overall - a nice city park. - MajandMrs

Privately owned RV park on Beaumont Ranch 800 acres. RV park is generally a large field with water and electric service only. There is a dump site on the property behind the check in building. Most electric boxes are 30 amp. Only about 10 are 50AMP. Electric boxes are not labeled with amperage, however, approximately 10 boxes located next to the main road are 50 AMP, rest are 30. Power supply fluctuates so be sure to use surge suppressor. Water pipes were leaking and had been for some time. Lots of standing water around power pole and water pipe. All sites are back in. Two sites are "covered" with metal building to help with Texas heat. Both appeared to be occupied full time. No shade at all on the RV grounds. Getting to the actual park is a challenge for big rigs (anything over 32') as the roads are winding, and narrow with no shoulders. Main entrance to the ranch is somewhat deceiving as there is an "overhead" archway with "Beaumont Ranch" on it. Height appears to be less than 14 feet, so high profile vehicles should not enter Gate 1 (main gate), but continue pass the entrance and watch for RV Park signs. No one accompanied us to our site, in fact, we were told to "pick out a site and come in to the office in the morning to pay." Entire RV area is grass, and although electric boxes have numbers on them, sites are not well defined. Several electric boxes had wasps in them, so be careful opening.
Nice fishing ponds with paddle boats. Cattle-drive was fun, as was the sporting clay shooting. If you are coming into the RV park, use Gate 3, and plan to arrive before dark or you will be swarmed by the night bugs. The people were very friendly, knowledgeable, helpful. Even though most of the main property grounds around the check in area are not well suited for high profile heavy large rigs, once in the RV park, that is not an issue. - usamacdonald2
