Review of Lake Ray Roberts State Park, TX – Isle DuBois Branch

The Isle Du Bois Branch of Lake Ray Roberts State Park is a spacious RV haven located about 40 minutes north of Dallas, TX. Isle Du Bois is one of two branches at Lake Ray Roberts, the other being the Johnson Branch. This is our review.

Review of Lake Ray Roberts

Thumbs Up:

  • Nice lake side camp sites available
  • Newly paved asphalt camp sites
  • Some pull throughs available
  • Paved hike and bike trails as well as dirt trails for the hard core cyclist
  • Very spacious park with adequate spacing between campsites
  • Clean rest rooms and showers

Thumbs Down:

  • One of the park office workers was quite rude both times we have stayed there and was of little to no help in finding a good location to camp. Others there were much better but the experience left us not wanting to stay there again
  • The landscape along the trails were covered sticker laden weeds that stuck to our shoes and our dog’s feet. Not fun
  • Numerous ant mounds in our camp ground preventing us from using the picnic table area
  • New and soft asphalt surface on the RV pad to be sure to use pads under your levelers or you may be paying for new asphalt
  • Very uneven sites
  • Reservations do not include a specific site. First come first serve. That’s great if you have a small RV but for larger RVs you could be out of luck.
  • Full hook-ups not available
Review

You’ll need a lot of leveling blocks!

Overall, we enjoyed our stay here, but, we really prefer the Johnson Branch to this park. The park staff are friendlier and there are no stickers to contend with! We hope you find this review helpful in finding a great RV experience!

Here’s a video of our arrival!
