Bay Landing RV Campground

Bay Landing RV Campground in Bridgeport, Texas
We visited this park on March 2, 2017, and stayed for 21 day(s).

All set up at Bay Landing RV Campground.
Bay Landing RV Campground has been a regular spring stop off for us since we began our RV journey. It’s a Thousand Trails park so the price ($3/night for a site with 50 AMP) is right. My (Shari’s) mother and siblings all live about 70 miles from here.

Bay Landing has only one row of 50 AMP full-hookup sites, and of those, several are ‘personal sites’ and a few more are bagged, meaning their electricity doesn’t work. There was only one site available on this row when we arrived and we quickly backed in and set up, much to the dismay of two more RVing couples that pulled in a few minutes later. Our back-in site is deep and wide. The parking pad is gravel, there’s a concrete patio with picnic table and grill, and the remainder of the site is grass with some shade.

The gate house is over a mile from the campsites, and the road in is horrid. Take your time or you’ll have nothing left in your cabinets. As you drive in, you’ll notice roads to three separate sections. The first one to your left is the Back Forty, with water, sewer, and 30 AMP service. This area is primarily seasonal campers, but for whatever reason, they don’t seem to care what it looks like and it’s pretty bad in our opinion.

Next, on the right, is the Suburbs section. It has a few 50 AMP sites, lots of 30 AMP sites, but no sewer. Honey wagon service is only $10. It’s more open in this section and sites are spacious. We stayed in this area last year. It’s close to the laundry room so what we lacked in one convenience, we made up for in another.

Next up is Hollywood Boulevard, the row of 50 AMP full hookup sites mentioned above. It’s adjacent the family clubhouse, mini golf, playground, basketball court, boat/canoe launch, and pool (not yet open for the season).

There’s also tent camping and cabins available for rent, a fishing pond (no license required), and plenty of area to walk, hike, or ride bikes.

Bay Landing RV Campground is not a resort. There’s no cable TV, but we were able to pull in a few stations with our antenna. The Wi-Fi was out while we were there, but we typically don’t rely on park Wi-Fi to begin with. Our Verizon signal was strong. The roads are poor, typical of Thousand Trails parks, unfortunately. But for a more rustic camping/RVing experience where you can enjoy time outdoors with family and friends, it works well.

The manager and staff are friendly and helpful. There’s nearby shopping for groceries and necessities in Bridgeport and a Walmart in Decatur. Although for us it was a long daily commute (primarily due to traffic slow downs), it’s a reasonable distance from Dallas and Fort Worth for day trips.
