It’s the Beach, Y’all!

We came down to see the beaches of Galveston and we were not disappointed! There is so much to do here that the state park makes a lot of sense.

We came down in June so it was HOT. If you want to camp in this park make sure you are going to RV it.

Also, the beaches are awesome, the wildlife is…

Stormy Night in a Historical Park!

Arrived here just before a big thunderstorm rolled in.

But it was super cool to watch as the lights of Houston illuminated the sky across the bay.

Can camp for up to 3 nights maximum with $10 permit from the courthouse down the street.

No utilities, but large open camping area near fishing…

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…

Trails were all very similar

We did see quite a bit of wildlife, observation towers were cool. Store is closed until at least 2022 when the bay side opens.

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!!!

Peaceful, Private Campsites

We enjoyed camping at Double Lake.  The campsites are huge and well kept.  I believe all have full hookups.  We had a lakefront site which had a private little path to the lake.  The shore was good for fishing.  There is a trail which goes around the whole lake, and it was such a nice hike we did…

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…
