Treetops RV Resort in Arlington, Texas, sits in the middle of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, a region that has an abundance of events and attractions. But the relaxing, natural setting, which includes 2,000 oak trees, might make you forget that you’re in one of the most exciting places in the country.

When the weather’s warm, visitors can take a dip in the swimming pool or partake in one of the weekly game nights. Frequent potlucks, parties and barbecues help round out the fun. The resort’s 166 spaces include 30- and 50-amp power, along with 51 pull-thrus.

Pets are welcome at the resort, and the new, fenced-in dog park gives Rover a chance to work off some energy. The dog park features toys, a water faucet, sanitation station and picnic table; a moveable fence can partition the park in case certain dogs need their own private space.

Don’t let the pooches have all the fun: the resort has nearly completed its 1-mile long Trekkie Course, which winds through the park and will give guests a chance to go for a jog or walk. The level path will include markers at every 10th of a mile so you will know your progress.
