Any decent campgrounds between Ft worth and Grapevine TX? Headed there next week, possibly Thur & Fri. Don't need anything fancy, just a place to park with electric. Headed to Watauga-maybe within say, 20 miles or so. Gary

The Vineyards Campground in Grapevine is about 20 miles from Watauga and always gets good reviews. But I have never stayed there. I know there are others over that way but have not stayed at any of them either.

The vineyards are nice. Few pull-thrus. if you want shade it is mostly on the hill, low number sites.

Beautiful cg and right in Grapevine. Stayed a couple of days to visit family on way home from California. Our site was a pull through on a hill. Was in 2008 but we thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

Thanks, looks like Valentines is not available for 2 consecutive nights(maybe one site Thur and move to another Fri}. There's a Cabelas up the road, does anyone know if they allow overnighting there as it will probably be very late Thursday when we arrive?

I would call that store for the best answer. It may vary per store.

They DO NOT allow overnight camping. Prominently posted signs advising against.

There is a Cracker Barrel at I-35 and Meachum. I believe they allow stopovers but the area is kinda shady.

It's probably farther than you want to drive, but Loyd Park at Joe Pool Lake has a excellent campground.

The Vineyards are very nice.

Benbrook Lake has camping as well. That will probably be your closest option unless you find a little hole in the wall spot (not advisable)

Another possibility is the park near Texas motor Speedway
Northlake Village RV
Maybe a little pricey. 25 miles north of Watauga on I-35W
