We only stayed a brief time at this clean and modern RV park in north-east Texas on our way east. Grim weather dogged us while we were here, but Fernbrook RV is a very nice park and has some of the best wireless internet we have yet encountered.

Fernbrook RV was our last stop in Texas and the weather was turning on us as we made our way east. It is not quite a resort park but for a relatively small RV park, they have a good selection of amenities. We were parked right next to their small pool (closed due to weather) and some really great private bathrooms with built in showers. They also had a spartan but sizable club room there as well.
All the pads and hookups looked to be top notch. They even had free cable TV. Perhaps best of all, the wireless internet in this park is honest to goodness actually good. I had a strong clear signal at all times of day and night. Wireless in parks is so universally bad that I stopped making it a regular feature of these reviews. Typically it is sluggish but functional by day, and useless as the sun sets and everyone starts trying to use it in earnest. At Fernbrook it was good and fast all the time without a single interruption or failure. Like a good RV camper, I didn’t hog the bandwidth for movies or the like but I did download some file updates from Steam and it worked like a charm.
The grounds are not spectacular, but they took pains to make them nice with decorative grasses and some lovely trees. At the pack of the park is a wedding venue that is quite lovely. When the grounds are not in use, park goers are welcome to take a stroll in the garden there. The price is here is right in line with the quality of the park, neither exorbitant nor a great bargain. That’s good enough to get a solid thumbs up from me. I’d gladly stay here again.
