We spent two weeks at Cowtown RV in a motorhome with slide-outs. Overall, this is a large, well-run campground. It isn’t a “destination resort” but it makes an excellent “base of operations” if you want to stay in the Fort Worth area or want someplace to spend the night when traveling on I-20. We’ve stayed here before and we’ll stay here again.
Tip: If you’re driving west on I-20, to reach Cowtown take Exit 418 (Willow Park), loop under the Interstate and drive east on the one-way service road. Do NOT take Exit 420 (Aledo), regardless of what your GPS says, because you can’t get to Cowtown from that exit.
The pros are: (1) Cowtown has sites for RVs of all sizes. Most sites have concrete pads, but the longest pull-through sites are gravel. However, they are reasonably level, and all sites are easy in/easy out. We had plenty of room for our slide-outs and the car. (2) Free Cable TV, (3) The laundry areas are clean and there seem to be an adequate number of washers and dryers in each of the three laundry areas around the park. (4) Quick access to the grocery store, gas station and restaurants in Willow Park. (5) Easy access to I-20. Also, easy access to I-30 and I-820. From Cowtown, it’s about 15 minutes to TCU and 25 minutes to downtown Fort Worth. (6) We don’t travel with pets, but there are several dog runs around the park. (7) Propane is available and there is a small store. (8) Management and staff are very friendly, helpful and welcoming. We didn’t use the restrooms/showers during our stay.
The cons are—and these wouldn’t be concerns for everyone: (1) Although there is free Wi-Fi throughout the park, during our stay the Wi-Fi was unreliable. Internet access was up-and-down frequently, and sometimes service was very, very slow. (2) The pool is seasonal and isn’t open for much of the year. (3) There is no on-site garbage pickup. However, there are trash cans around the park, and a centrally located dumpster.
