“Cabins are extremely small!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

We stayed in their cabin which sleeps 6 people. The cabin really isn't a "cabin". It is more like a trailer with wood looking paneling on the outside to look like a cabin. It was extremely small. Inside, we felt like we staying more in an RV than cabin. The bathroom was so small that I hit my head on the sink when using toilet!

It was fairly clean. The extra blankets we needed to use for the futon bed either had coffee stains or food in them so we had to use one of own blankets we keep in our van for traveling.

Everything inside was cheaply made - the frig didn't stand evenly on the floor, most of the blinds were broken or not working, etc.

The shower/tub had the drain on the side of the tub instead of under the faucet so when trying to shower, you were stepping in the drain. Plus the shower head was so low, you had to bend down to take a shower. It was so weird that half of us wouldn't even even use the shower.

The map on their website shows the cabins facing Lake Grapevine. However, they face a swampland (see photo) and not the lake. That was disappointing also.

The staff were friendly. There are numerous RV sites available too and most all of them were taken the night we stayed so they do stay quite busy.

This campground is located in the city and just around the corner from The Gaylord Texan Resort. Due to the small size of the cabin, we would not consider staying here again.

This is a very pretty rv park...spacious. We stayed in Dec/Jan. Best advice I can offer is...If you are staying for the use of Grapevine Lake, find out the lake water level. We had to launch at Silver Lake Marina (Private Marina) because EVERY other launch site on the lake was too shallow for us to launch our small jon boat. Also fishing was horrible. We found no underwater structures to fish around....no trees, etc. Humminbird showed no fish. So unless you are coming to spend time other than in the lake the park was very nice. Grapevine is very pretty.

Room Tip: we stayed in spot 36...very nice.

Set up reservations way in advance to meet son and family traveling in rented motor home and visiting from California. Initially had a campsite across from theirs, but as fate would have it we found ourselves broken down in Denton at Camping World for past 2 weeks. So had to call and change from camping to a cabin that would be close to family and grand kids. Wife had planned to cook Gumbo for the cool weather and to our surprise there was no stove, hot plate, nothing! Although the brochure indicated fully furnished cabins. No problem we can go to plan B. Then at end of evening and enjoying a nice campfire, everyone retired for the night. It was very brisk and cool out. Came in got showers and headed to bed. Another surprise - no blankets just sheets and very light bed spread. No problem my wife always comes prepared, went out and got a coupe throw blankets a friend made us for Christmas. They worked out fine. Now laid down and bingo bed was worn out and pillows flat as pancakes! Did not bring ours from motor home, darn it live and learn! This is a very beautiful campground and very nicely laid out with oversized campsites and pretty much all with excellent views. Staff all seem to be very friendly and eager to help. Even delivered firewood and kindling for our nightly fire and at a decent price at $10 bucks per bundle, (bundle great per night). Over all we will be back in our motor home but doubtful for the cabins.

Very nice place hidden in the middle of Grapevine Texas.
Helpful Staff, very clean park and felt very secure.
I didn't try the wifi but you get access for two devices.
AT&T cell service was strong.
Bathhouses were immaculate condition.
Only negative I have is some of the sites were not as level as I would have hoped, but hey, everything else was perfect.

Make your reservations early! This campground is so great that it's very popular and is sometimes hard to get in on the weekends. They have the best staff too. All sites have lake views, and from all sites you can easily walk to the water. Lots of activities, a nature trail, a camp store, kayak rentals and more. The sites are nice & long, clean and well kept. The only negative I have with this campground is the laundry is small and gets super hot in the summer. The location is great too. You're close to Grapevine/Southlake/Keller, the Grapevine Mills Mall, the Gaylord, lots of restaurants & bars. They also have several cabins....haven't stayed in one, but the outside appearance is nice, clean, and porches overlooking the water. We stay in a lot of campgrounds, and this one is one of the very best!

Felt safe and amenities were nice, fireworks, live music, camp store and snow cones! Just not as tidy as expected for the price. Liked the convenience to City of Grapevine and close to shopping at Grapevine Mills Outlet Shopping.
