Campground Review: Dallas/Arlington KOA

We stayed at the Dallas/Arlington KOA for four months (May – August 2016) while we were looking for a new house.

The campground is in a flood plain but despite record rainfall, the water in the nearby creek never reached the campground.

The campground overall and the restrooms and showers in particular were always clean.

The pool was very nice.

They had a nice pancake breakfast benefiting the KOA Kids charity on Sunday during the summer.

They placed the long-term campers towards the back of the campground.

All the long-term campers were very friendly and always greeted us when we drove or walked by.

The campground was very quiet; we never experienced any problem with noise.

The playground was nice but pretty basic and perhaps a little “old fashion.”

They have two dog parks, one for smaller dogs and the other for larger dogs.

While we don’t have a dog we did hear a neighbor complain that some of the campers were not cleaning up after their dogs.

This same neighbor told us that when they complained to the owner he wasn’t receptive to their concerns.

They were having trouble with the Wi-Fi while we were there.

There were several days when it wasn’t working at all.

We used it mostly for email and reading the electronic copy of the newspaper.

When it was working it wasn’t super fast.

After some frustration we began using our own wireless “Mifi” for the newspaper.
