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 quiet, private site and there are very few of those. We enjoyed our time here in our full hookup site, but the campground was just too busy for our taste. There were vehicles constantly driving up and down the road in front of our site, and lots of children running around. We don't have kids, so this was a little annoying to us. The campground has a lot of amenities such as swimming pool, lake, playgrounds, etc… that would be fantastic for a family. We like to camp for the relaxation and serenity of it, and this campground just isn't that type of place.
We spent Christmas Eve here in a cabin and had a wonderful time! not only was every single shelter/cabin site around us empty so we truly felt like we were disconnected from urban life, but we got to see wildlife! lots and lots of deer and owls. Bathrooms near cabins were under construction so we used porta potties, but they were nice all things considered. there was a foot-pumped faucet for washing hands outside. trails at the park were nice and mostly shaded. cool view of the Brazos river
We spend Thanksgiving in this campground. We arrived shortly after checkin and had limited selection of sites. The person at checkin did have a good site recommendation. Beware that not all sites have full hookups. For the size of the place I would have explained small convenience store but they only had ice. Our site backed up to some trees so that was nice. Good dog park and plenty of activities available. I walk the dog a lot and run and road around the grounds needs to be repaved, lots of pot holes and uneven areas.
The river is a beautiful site no doubt. The campgrounds are older and could use a bit of updating. We were close to the river. Was a bit disappointed as when booking through TT website, it said full hook ups when we arrived, only Water and Electric were available. ( reason for the 4 instead of 5 stars }Not a big issue as we were only there for a couple nights and as full-timers, we have a system down pat where our rig could stay off a sewer line for at least 7-10 days. All in all, its a nice place to come and relax, not too much to do if your a family. Clean restrooms and showers.
The campground is well laid out. Easy access to sites, amenities and the Lake. Although its a small portion of the lake on the campgrounds side, you do have access to boat rentals, a boat launch and plenty of parking. So if you have a boat, it will be a wonderful experience. Plus there is a beach area for families to enjoy.
The cottages look almost brand new. The campground even has a location to wash your RV or vehicle.
November 2020 ALERT! Due to Interstate 10 construction, the eastbound exit for San Felipe is closed so the navigation system took us further East and then backtracked on some horrible condition rural roads. Recommend going to Brookshire and using FM 359 and then FM 1458 to reach Park Road unless you want to really beat up your rig. West bound entrance onto Interstate 10 was a bit crazy also so you may want to do some recon before finding yourself down a horrible back road. No notice of this on the State Park website. 40 FHU sites here under Spanish moss-draped trees. Good spacing between most sites, but no privacy from neighbor sites. The site required leveling side-to-side. Quiet campsite. No highway noise. Train whistle in distant. Saw lots of deer that came fairly close to us. Nice trails but very busy on weekends as Houstonians escape the city for some country fun! A brand new toilet/shower facility opened in early November 2020 in this FHU campground that includes 2 family restrooms. Toilet stalls are very narrow with residential toilets which are water-saving that required 4-5 flushes to empty the bowl. Dyson hand dryer. In the FHU loop, there were 3 camp hosts and one campsite marked for the 4th camp host. Another site has a firewood wagon and an ice machine. Then another site is coned off. So 6 sites gone from the inventory! There is a camp host site also in the tent loop. Wow- 5 camp hosts?? That has to be a record for this size park! We did see Park Police drive thru the FHU loop very frequently. A new toilet/shower facility is under construction in the tent loop. Construction just began so probably another 6-9 months to finish. In the meantime, there are 4 job johnnies and campers from the tent loop utilizing the new toilet/shower facility, with 3 toilets for women and 2 for men. AT&T 1 bar signal.
Katy Texas is a 20 minute drive where you will find all types of stores and services.
