RV Legal Limits in Texas

One important note about Texas for those that are non-residents. Don’t speed, I know there are public service signs everywhere that say “Don’t Slow Texas Down”. Should I ever enter this state again, I will slow Texas down. I was traveling down a highway entering a town, they had the speed sign behind a construction sign and a cop behind the speed sign. Something right out of the Duke of Hazzard movie. Unbelievable! I rolled into town doing 9mph over the 35 miles per hour required. The nice little police lady had no pleasantries nor professional courtesies for us that day. I asked her where to pay the ticket and her reply was you figure it out. Since she was in such a Jolly mood I thanked for her time and went back to RV, googled the county seat and worked my way back from them there. The ticket was $300 plus a $200 court fee, plus sales tax, and recorded as a criminal misdemeanor! Come on, where we are from that is an infraction that only means something to your insurance company for a few years. I was also told be the clerk that if your state requires a special license such as a CDL Texas would pull your CDL on the spot. She also said if I had been doing one more Mile Per Hour she would have placed me in jail until all the money was paid. Texas residents have their records cleared if they get no other tickets for nine months. I want to visit my relatives who are in Texas again, but I might just hire a driver!

Points of Interest

  • Bridgeport Historical Museum – One our favorites. Discusses coal, and natural gas exploration and drilling. If you go nowhere else go here. – (6 Miles)
  • Fort Worth Stock Yards – Lots of shops and lots to see. We enjoyed our time here. Bring a wallet that is rested and ready. You’ll need it. – (55 Miles)
  • Six Flags – $73pp plus $20pd parking paid onsite or $30pd if you buy online, seems they think they are Disney. Sounds like delusions of grandeur. – (70 Miles)


Bay Landing was an incredible park, and with some siding, and paint can easily become a perfect park again. Has to have the most amenities and acreage we have seen in a Thousand Trails park. The park is about 1.5 hours from Fort Worth, and has very, very few full hook up sites which keep it from being a destination park for families. This park is a great jump off point to see Fort Worth Area attractions. We hear that some of the building we have in the following photos may be gone due to fire. We have not been back there yet to confirm that assertion. Here is the official Thousand Trails write up. This park, is a park in a desert setting and is a destination park. Too far away from Dallas and Fort worth for touring. Bring ATV’s they have a lot of room to use them. If fishing is more your speed, they have a big lake.

Park Pictures

This is the park entrance road; it is about 3 miles long and appears to be owned by the park

Highest speed limit we have seen in a Thousand Trails park

Road leading to the paint ball course, but we never found the course.

Natural gas pipes are everywhere in the park

RV storage, pretty well out of site, and plenty of room

Not sure what is going on here

Some of these things hanging out here as well

Now we know where fire water comes from. It comes from big barrels all over Bridgeport and this campground

ATV trails bring in some people

The snack shop and family center


This picture is odd, the family center is closed until March 4, 2011 and had to be taken through the glass.

Cactus everywhere


Newer “A” frame cottage.

Long steep boat ramp, but people are using it

Tent site on the lake

Fishing pond, no license required

Most sites are marked only by the table and electric post. 99% of the sites are 30 amp, and water only. No Sewer

Dump station

A little more developed site than some

a 50 amp sewer and water site – Very few sites have sewer, we paid the 50 amp upgrade so we could get sewer.

Sites for the most part are well spaced, but some are as close as many KOA spaces

Our cement pad

Four washing machines, all $1.00 each. Need ear plugs when in the spin cycle. No coin changer, need to get a roll of quarters before you come.

Three ladies,

Three driers

Canoes are in good shape and look like they could be fun, and the price is good. Don’t know what a Jon boat is.

We did not try the bikes, but there are a lot of sharp plants around here, so unless you have puncture proof tires, you might want to rent these.

Kiddie pool waiting for kiddie season

Hot tub, waiting for the hot tubbing season. It’s cool that algea can grow in Texas.
