Sandy Lake Mobile Home & RV Park Review & Rating
Sandy Lake Mobile Home & RV Park Overview:
Sandy Lake Mobile Home & RV Park was recently (2007) purchased by Carefree RV Resorts, who owns and manages RV Parks throughout the United States. Their other Texas Parks include: Travelers World RV Resort in San Antonio, Austin Lone Star RV Resort in Austin, and Treetops RV Village in Arlington - you'll find a review of each of these parks on Texas Outside's RV Park Reviews Page.
Sandy Lake RV Park is conveniently located between Interstate 35 on the east and George Bush Freeway on the West, providing easy access to any part of the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. The terrain is flat and the Park is well treed, somewhat dated, and the majority of the Park is mobile homes and more permanent RVs. About 20 of the over 260 sites are reserved for daily or weekly use.
Sandy Lake is a managed Carefree RV Park and as is typical of all Carefree RV Parks, the staff is well trained and focused on providing friendly and helpful service. As the new owners, Carefree has plans to make some significant improvements to Sandy Lake.

Amenities and Fun Things To Do:
The RV sites that are open for daily use are currently side-by-side with little to no space and include: a small picnic table, concrete strips for the RV tires, and full hookups. All of the sites are pull through but maneuvering a big rig may be somewhat challenging. Most of the sites are well shaded.
Some of the amenities at Sandy Lake include:
- clubhouse and kitchen for meetings
- game room with two pool tables
- swimming pool
- coin laundry
- small convenience store with some staples and RV supplies
- wireless Internet access
- 16 TV stations
Sandy Lake is dated, the sites are cramped, and the Park is primarily for full timers and mobile homes. However, if you can overlook all of that, Sandy Lake is an excellent place to park the rig, explore the area or visit friends and relatives, and spend the night. It is very convenient to lots of things to see and do.
A Typical Texas Outsider Day:
As mentioned earlier, we would stay here if we wanted easy and close access to explore the metroplex. From Sandy Lake you can be in downtown Dallas in 10 minutes (with no traffic) or Fort Worth in 20 minutes! We love to golf, bike, and boat and you'll find plenty of choices for all of these activities and more nearby.

Additional Pictures of Sandy Lake Mobile Home & 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
