Texas RV Park Recipes

When visiting our Texas RV park you may want to try your hand at a guest favorite in one of our fire rings. Campfire Biscuits are not only delicious, they are fun for the whole family to make.  Here is our best recipe and instructions for Campfire Biscuits, also known as Biscuits on a Stick. TX RV Park recipe

Ingredients & Supplies:
Canned Biscuits
Campfire Coals
¾” Wooden Dowel
Cooking Spray
Butter
Jam

First thing you do is enjoy a nice fire with our complimentary first night’s firewood for every RV site.  When the coals are red hot and putting off a lot of heat you get out your dowels and spray the end so the biscuit will come off nicely once it is cooked.

Get out your canned biscuits.  We found that the cheapest and smallest biscuits always seem to work the best.  So don’t go getting fancy with the canned biscuit!  Now, start stretching your biscuit dough until it looks like a nice snake.  Then place one end on the tip of the stick and begin spiraling the dough down the stick.  Make sure to seal all holes or you will be sorry later when your fillings drip everywhere.  You want the dough thin, so it will cook thoroughly and quickly.

Recipes for a Texas RV Park vacation

Now, take your uncooked biscuit and stick and hold them like you’re fishing at one of our stocked ponds, with the biscuit end directly over the red hot coals.  If your campfire has a ring around it, this next part is fun and easy.  Roll the stick back and forth along the ring for nice even browning of the biscuit.

Once the biscuit is nice and toasty, remove the stick with a swift turn of the stick while holding your biscuit steady.

Now here is the best part.  Add your favorite fixins’ such as; butter, jelly, cinnamon and sugar, down in the cavity of the biscuit. Some rv campers use a sqeeze bottle for their fixins’.  If you are enjoying an East Texas sunrise, you may want to put some eggs and sausage in the middle.  So delicious!

We hope you will come visit us at our Texas RV park in Canton soon, and share pictures of your family enjoying Campfire Biscuits!

Characteristics of a Great RV Park – part 2 | RV Camping Sites

Our last blog post discussed three of the top 7 things to look for in a good RV park.  Today we will be talking about the other four things to be aware of when finding that perfect rv camping site.

Utilities – We know that when choosing an RV camping site you want to make sure there are proper utilities to accommodate your RV.  At Mill Creek Ranch Resort our RV camping sites offer  level concrete pads with full hookups for water, sewer and electricity at 20, 30 and 50 amp service.  We also provide daily trash pickup at your RV camping site.

Park Location – Nothing is worse than pulling into an RV park expecting some peace and quiet and then to be inundated with road noise.  At Mill Creek our RV resort is set back from the main road, and has trees to buffer any noise that may intrude on your peace.  We pride ourselves in offering our RV camping site guests a resort experience, and that includes allowing them the quiet and peace of the East Texas piney woods.

Restrooms – When you are on the road, you expect your rv camping site to have a shower and restroom that is clean and well maintained.  We provide extra clean restrooms, showers and laundry facilities.  We want you to be comfortable no matter where you are in our rv park.  Again, only the best for our rv resort guests at Mill Creek Ranch Resort!

Corporate Event Planning for Dallas, TX Businesses

Dallas TX corporate retreats
This past Wednesday Mill Creek Ranch Resort participated in Partyfest Extravaganza 2013, the largest one-day exhibition & tradeshow of its kind held in the Southwest… a one-day event featuring over 250 of D/FW’s top party & event suppliers.  

We were thrilled to be surrounded by Dallas area event planners, party vendors, and other event venue representatives.  It was especially interesting to see all that they have to offer party goers of corporate events and weddings and other special events from food to entertainment.
Corporate retreat Dallas, TX


Partyfest brings out the best of Dallas area party planners, catering services, live entertainers, party decorators, and they all brought their best wares to showcase and share.  We will be incorporating many ideas from the various vendors into our corporate events and special events here at Mill Creek Ranch Resort.   We also realized what a special venue space we have here at Mill Creek Ranch Resort.  Being an hour from Dallas has its advantages, a true escape!

Mill Creek corporate events are a special treat for your employees.  We offer cabin rentals with executive meeting space, in a relaxing retreat atmosphere underneath the pines of East Texas.  Your employees could bring their families and relax for the weekend by the pool or take in a bit of catch and release fishing at our stocked ponds.  A friendly race in our paddleboats could be used for team building exercises!  Our pavilion offers a great outdoor space with full catering for any corporate event.  

We hope you will contact us for more information or a tour when planning your next corporate event, family reunion, wedding or other special event at 903-567-6020.  Mill Creek Ranch Resort is an ideal event venue!
