Great place for a family getaway

We stayed at Jellystone Park in Burleson, aka Rustic Creek Ranch, fka as RV Ranch. It's primarily an RV park, but they have tent camping and quite a few luxury cottages now, too. I booked in mid June for a stay at the end of June. I also booked online, which didn't really accommodate well for searches when you have flexibility in your dates and room sizes, but I was also able to call and ask questions before booking. ~ Location ~ I booked without having seen the property before. I knew where the park was located, but the last time I noticed was pre-Jellystone days. I had to give directions to three groups of adults by text message all coming from a nearby town, which was fairly simple. The park is WELL marked and visible from I-35, so you will not miss it. ~ The Office ~

We can't wait to plan another back to Rustic Creek Ranch!

We have stayed at this location several times. Each time it gets better and better. The staff is up beat and amazing. The pools are beautifully landscaped. The bath houses are clean, roomy, and very nice. The water park is perfect for the kids. The arcade was perfect for my teenage son. We love to ride our bikes around the beautiful this beautiful rv park. It's always great family fun when we are there. Can't wait to book and go back!

Loved it! Will go back!

My husband and I are from this area and decided to have a quick little one night getaway while our bedroom was being remodeled. We called them up and they offered us a Premium King Cottage for $99. We thought, "sure, we'll try it". After looking at the pics of the Premium King rooms online we were skeptical. Could it really be as nice as it shows online? Huge bedroom with fireplace and giant king sized bed with modern twist on rustic. Large bathroom with jetted tub large enough for 2. We got there late after dark and security was at the front gate. After getting a map and directions on where our cottage was we were so pleasantly surprised to find that it was just as it showed online. It was beautiful. The automatic fireplace came on with the switch of a button. The

It sounded like a good idea.... it wasn't

My family of 9 (2 adults, 7 children) stayed over Halloween weekend (spending well over $1,200, for a 2 night stay and activities, in trailers, not the nice cottages). We experienced a lack of information/incorrect information from the time of reservations to the time of our departure. Due to a complete lack of knowledge from the staff, our family paid full price for each and every activity, and NOT ONCE did my family get to participate to its fullest, or at all, because of overbooking and/or not informing us of general requirements. No refunds were offered for selling us tickets we could not use. Be prepared to stand in lengthy lines, to sign up for each and every activity separately. We missed "service with a smile". Only two hosts were pleasant. The others never

Loved the Cottages

My husband and I stayed in one of the premium cottages for a part of our weekend away. I wish we would have stayed both nights at Rustic Creek. The cottages were absolutely beautiful and very clean. The 2 person whirlpool tub was extremely relaxing and we didn't have any issues with running our of hot water. We will definitely bring the kids back! Loved IT!

Great alternative to the traditional motel/hotel!

Just returned from a weekend family reunion here and have to say that we really enjoyed our stay here so much. We got a great private cabin (cabin #9) that was roomy and very well appointed.....with our own jacuzzi tub in it, too! Full cable/DishTV, a cd player, good WiFi (yes, I had my laptop), and the A/C worked great. Our cabin also had the cutest private front porch with 2 lovely relaxing! The whole cabin was extremely comfortable and I have to agree that the beds are THE BEST---I seriously was trying to find mattress tags to figure out what brand it was, it was so comfortable--lol! We also used the 2 pools (both smallish, but very nice, clean, and well kept), enjoyed some of the kids activities (pics with Yogi Bear and fire engine rides), as well as used a

More than meets the eye"

Stayed for a family reunion for a 2nd time. Last reunion was in '07 while under the name "RV Ranch" we were a little skeptical of it now being franchised through JellyStone but were pleasantly surprised to find that it is just as nice if not even better now. There are now more cabins and meeting halls available and more on-site activities available. The luxury cabins are beautiful! The furniture in them is not as comfortable as it is fashionable with the exception of the beds. I found the beds to be quite comfy. Two complaints I had were having to pay in full so far ahead of time with no refunds and that it was very difficult to find security and/or maintenance after 10PM when an issue arose. Now that I know the number to call for after 10PM it would probably be ok, but the #
