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.

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:
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.
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.
