Campground in Arlington, Texas

We will be traveling to Arlington in two weeks. The only campground I have really found online is the KOA in Arlington. Does anyone know of another?

Cedar Hill State Park is in southwest Dallas, with easy access to IH 20 and close to Arlington. We've stayed there several times when we wanted to be near Dallas or Arlington. While I would not say it is one of the most attractive state parks in the Texas system, it is nice. It's also near one of my favorite restaurants, Pappadeaux on Hwy 67.

Treetops RV Park is a very nice park in Arlington. We have friends that live in Arlington and we stay there when we visit them.

Texas is a wonderful choice for vacations as it has beaches and sits right in the Gulf of Mexico. So whether you want the Panhandle Plains, the Piney Woods, Big Bend Country, the Gulf or the Southern Plains areas of Texas, there is an RV park and campground for you. For much idea just check this out allstays.com, it’s a free online guide for campgrounds and RV parks Texas.

You may also want to check out http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/. That's the official State of Texas Parks and Wildlife site. You can take virtual tours of our state parks, book reservations online, etc.

Also look here: http://stateparks.com/tx.html

The Vinyards in Grapevine, Texas is a nice, full hook-up park. It's 20 miles noth of Arlington.

Loyd Park is nice, but water and electric only. It is 11 miles south of Arlington.


Cedar Hill State Park
. I have stayed at Cedar Hill. It's an OK Texas State Park. High day use fee. Water and electric only. It is 17 miles from Arlington.

Traders Village RV is a full hook-up park. Be mindful it is next to a small, commuter airport. It is 7 miles from Arlington.

I've stayed at all 4. I listed them in order of preference.

Others have mentioned Tree Tops RV. We have not been there.

Have fun in Texas!

My bad, that's new since my last visit a several years ago.

Cedar Hill will be expensive if you don't have a Texas State Parks Pass. Full Hook-up site $30 plus $5 per person/per day.

A family of 4 will be $50/night!

I live in Texas and have have camped in Texas State Parks very many times. For us, the State Parks Pass is a very good deal. And I am proud to support the many fine parks in the Texas system.

If you are looking for a state park in Texas, here is a link to a clickable map of Texas state parks. The clickable map is in the middle of the page. There is an on-line reservation for Texas state parks here.

We have a Texas Parks pass too and it's been a great money saver. Sometimes, we just take the grand kids to the park for a day outing and with the pass, there's no charge. Plus you get half off discounts for four nights (we've already exhausted ours), one per stay.

Thanks for the link to the clickable map, I don't think I've seen that before. Do you have any favorites, RVhiker?
