Midtown RV Park Overview:
Review of Midtown RV Park in Ft Worth Texas
It appears that this RV Park has closed - the website link and phone number don't work!!!!
We have been staying at Ft Worth Midtown RV Park for years and we wanted to keep the limited number of sites all to ourselves because we love staying here when we need a weekend escape to Ft Worth. But, we decided to share this little secret with over 220,000 Texas Outside visitors a month!
Midtown RV Park is very small, with side by side sites, some shade trees, and very few amenities. What makes Midtown RV park outstanding is its location to downtown Ft Worth and lots of fun things to see and do within a few miles of the Park. Based on the way that we rate RV parks, Midtown does not score well, but don't let that discourage you from staying here if you want to explore the area.
Amenities and Fun Things To Do:
Midtown RV Park has 18 sites, 4 of which are pull throughs, and the rest are back-ins. Two of the sites are for very small trailers, vans, or popups. The RV sites have 30/50 amp service, cable TV, outgoing phone service, and sewer hook ups. There are no picnic tables and limited space between each site. Wireless Internet service is also available. Pets are allowed.
Some of the other amenities include:
- small store with limited camping supplies
- souvenirs and T-shirts
- washer and dryer
- air conditioned restroom and showers
A Typical Texas Outsider Day:
Midtown RV Park is where we stay for some "urban camping" when we want to escape Dallas and explore Ft Worth or attend numerous specials events that are close to Midtown. Some of the events we like to attend are: the music events in Sundance Square; Mayfest on the Trinity River; events at Will Roger's Coliseum; or plays at Casa Manana.
Midtown is so close to everything, including downtown Ft Worth (less than a couple miles), that we park the RV and bike everywhere including some of the good local nightlife, the Ft Worth Zoo, restaurants in Sundance Square, or the Omni theater, just to mention a few. Within three blocks is the Trinity River Trail which is a great biking, roller blading, running, or walking trail - it is flat, paved, wide, and an easy and somewhat scenic ride along the Trinity River.

Additional Pictures of Midtown RV Park
Texas Outside uses a tough rating scale and it’s difficult for a campground to get a “10”. Each park is rated on:
- Scenic Beauty: a campground that is flat with no trees or character gets a “1” and hills, lots of trees, beautiful lake site, and lush ground cover gets a “10”
- Park Condition: the cleaner, well kept, and maintained campgrounds receive high scores
- Amenities: we are looking for lots of amenities like restrooms, dump stations, playgrounds, boat ramps, shelters, concession stand, rental toys, and more.
- Campsites: low scores are given for sites that are right next to each other (good for getting to know your neighbors, but not what we’re looking for when we’re camping); have no lantern holder, no water or electricity, no fire pit, no grill, or no picnic table (or it’s rotten wood); have no trees and no view; the ground cover is crushed rock (my bare feet hate that stuff!); and they require a lot of work to get your rig level.
- Things To Do: Bonus points are given for campgrounds that offer lots of fun things to do at the park or very nearby – this includes: biking, hiking, climbing, boating, entertainment, golf, swimming, fishing, volleyball, horseshoes, and more
