We park, lots of people here to work

Nice level concrete pads. Very tightly packed together. Had a pool and clubhouse. Very nice clean bath/shower rooms and laundry facilities. Only real problem was the people park on the main thruway making getting in and out with the trailer difficult. We had to wake a guy up to move his truck to…

Nice park close to Houston

I like state parks and this is a good example why. The sites are well spaced, well maintained and relatively inexpensive. About $20. You can reserve online and the web site has photos of the site so you know it works for you.

Site have electric and water and the dump station is at the entrance of…

Nice camping area

Spots we are a bit small but the lake area was great for swimming, kayaking, and boating. Very family friendly

Winter Camping at Cagle is Peaceful and Beautiful

Just finished another camping trip to Cagle Recreation Area in the Sam Houston National forest.  It was pretty chilly in the beginning of March, but we camped during the week when all the weekenders had left, and there were only a handful of campers there.  So peaceful and serene.  Lots of clearly…

Sam Houston National Forest

Older campground, but well maintained with larger sites providing privacy. Also, wouldn’t expect full hookups in a National Forest campground, so that was a plus. Verizon signal was virtually non-existent, but nice to be off grid for a couple days.

Great 5 days here

This was in my top 5 KOA’s to stay at. We stayed 5 days. Close to amazing Lake Conroe. We had a blast here. Fishing in the pond for some small mouth. Each and every staff member was friendly and courteous. The spots are spread out with tons of room. We will be back here definitely!!!

Very quiet here in the Sam Houston National Forest!

28 campsites! Not too close together either! They fixed the water spigots throughout the camp just recently. Bathrooms get cleaned daily, super clean during the week, but gets crowded on weekends. So bathrooms get kinda overused. The showers are hot! Many places have luke warm, but they turn up the…

Busy Campground

We camped here for a long weekend getaway, and wanted to see what a Thousand Trails campground was like.  The campground is huge, and you cannot reserve a specific site.  You drive around and pick a site, then call and let them know which one you're in.  This is fine, but we were looking for a…

Beautiful Lake and Great Campsites

Cagle Recreation Area is one of my favorite places to camp.  It's just an hour north of Houston and in a beautiful, peaceful wooded setting.  Although you're not far from the city, you feel like you're out in the middle of nowhere.  The campsites are mostly level, well kept, and there's ample…

Alligators!

 We loved this place! Our campsite was on Burr Oak loop. Very spacious. Quite a walk to the bathroom though. Very clean bathrooms. 

The trails are awesome! So glad we had our bikes, it allowed us to cover a lot of ground. We did see over 10 alligators. Some on the side of the trail, some in…

Escape from the City

This is the best place to escape from the big city and enjoy nature! There is so much to do. The hiking and bike paths are aplenty. We loved seeing the gators, especially when the babies were hatching (spot dozens of babies in the photos). The observatory is also incredible. There are so many…

Alligators and an observatory

If you want to see alligators in their natural habitat this is the park for you.  There wer so many. We even came across one on the trail eating a snake. The best part though is the observatory. There’s always plenty of stargazers up there that love to share their equipment, you can also pay for…

Big sites, no RVs, quite neighbors!

Super roomy sites in the woods, quiet (no RVs, yay!), and easy access to the lake. Stayed two nights on a cross country drive. Did some kayak fishing and a 25 mile bike ride on the state forest / country roads - many trucks but generally courteous drivers who gave me the lane. Trees for hammocks at…

Not the best site for non-motor vehicle users

We didn’t actually camp on the campgrounds themselves as they were quite full of dirt bikers and being two young women we didn’t feel comfortable. We camped along Kelly’s Pond Rd leading up to the campgrounds and had a nice night. Our site neighbors partied all night long (good music though so it’s…
