Dallas, TX campground recommendation please

I am traveling to Dallas, TX and looking for a campground recommendation. I normally stay at The Vineyards Campground and Cabins in Grapevine, but they do not have availability. If necessary, I would prefer to trade off being centrally located for a nicer campground. Thanks in advance!
Greg

You'll want to decide on a campground based on where you plan to visit. On that edge of the metro area. The traffic is simply too much otherwise.

If indeed Dallas proper (not suburbs) I'd look between IH75 west to IH35, from about Lake Ray Roberts and south. From about McKinney over to Denton. (Avoid those highways).

The Dallas North Tollroad is the key to city access N-S

Same for the Bush & Rayburn Tollroads to go E-W.

I've used Sandy Lake many times the past few decades, but it's crowded. A great location is its appeal.

Depends how close you need to be to downtown. We are currently staying at Lavonia Park. It is federal and with senior pass you can't beat full hookups at $15 a night. Lots of space between sights and lake views. https://www.recreation.gov/camping/l...O&parkId=71250

We stayed at Dallas/Arlington KOA earlier this year to be near Arlington and it was pretty decent for being a downtown location.
