I-35 RV Park & Resort Overview:I-35 RV Park & Resort is a very clean and well maintained RV park a few miles north of Waco in Elm Mott. They are just off of the frontage road, so there is some freeway noise, but other than that, this is a very nice park. The terrain is flat, there are a few trees, all the roads are paved, and the sites are side by side. The new owners are very friendly and helpful and have a number of plans to improve the park.
Amenities and Fun Things To Do:I-35 RV Park & Resort has over 250 RV sites which are a mixture of pull thrus and back ins. The sites have water, electric, and sewer hookups and most are over-sized to handle large rigs with quad slides. The sites are level, most are not shaded, and some have picnic tables. I-35 RV Park also has covered sites at the back of the campground.
Some of the other amenities include: a small cafe that serves great home cooked meals at very reasonable prices; wi-fi Internet; meeting rooms to accommodate 20 to 150 people; 3 fishing ponds with a catch and release policy; 2 laundromats; propane; rec room with pool table, popcorn, and TV; and onsite RV repair.
There is a very nice pool, spa, and soon to be sandy beach area with volleyball courts, and a cabana. There are plans to create a day parking and day use area with access to the beach and pool - so if you're tired, hot, or need to relax for a few stops, stop in. The back 40 has two areas with sheep for petting, which will entertain the young kids for awhile.
A Typical Texas Outsider Day:We have stayed here to explore the Waco area. If you like to fish the ponds are stocked. The pool provides a relaxing and refreshing setting.
Cool Nearby Activities:Waco is about 5 miles south of the park and offers lots of things to see and do.

Additional Pictures of I-35 RV Park & Resort
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
