We used to live in the DFW area, and were surprised at how few "nice" campgrounds there actually are in the entire area. On the south side of the area is Cedar Creek state park, on the northwest side is a great park in Grapevine (The Vineyards), and just north of Dallas near Denton are a few good parks. Hopefully others will chime in with places to stay on the east and west ends of the area. Best to set up camp in one of those parks, and drive to south Dallas to the fairgrounds. Be careful in south Dallas, we were robbed by a guy with a knife the last time we attended the fair. However, nothing like a Fletcher's corny dog fresh out of the fat fryer! Mmmmm, corny dogs. Big Tex had his clothes burned off then, too. I sure hope they got him all dressed up again! "Welcome.....to.....the.....State..Fair........of. ....Texas"!
