Serendipitous Journeys

Family of 6, downsized our lives & became Fulltime RVers traveling the country.

Lake Conroe RV & Camping Resort

This review is only our opinion of the Campground, and can be found in a little more detail on our blog post about our Wintering in Texas – Our Adventures Continued, Part 4.

Lake Conroe RV & Camping Resort is just to the north of Houston in Willis, TX.  The cities of Willis and Conroe are short drives away from the park for whatever you may need.  Willis has a Kroger the likes of which I had never heard of before….it’s like a Wal-Mart, with the other departments besides groceries!  It was so odd, you can shop for clothes at Kroger!  I liked Conroe, it’s a nice enough city as cities go.  We even drove further past Conroe and went to The Woodlands outside Houston, where they have a pretty cool mall that’s practically a sightseeing attraction all on its own.

This park is still one of our favorites.  They’ve done a lot of work on it, and they have three different long term resident sections.  One section is actual tiny houses that you buy or lease, they were pretty cute!  It’s very active, people always out and about….the lively feel really helped us want to get outside.

Our spot wasn’t right up against anyone else’s spot, as some parks can be crammed together.  However, there are some pull-through spots that are back to back and front to front, that have less space than the regular spots.  All spots are full hookups, as far as we are aware.  Weekend campers tend to make all the TT parks busier Friday through Sunday, which is something to consider if coming in on one of those days because there will be less spots to choose from.  And of course, holidays have been even busier.

They have a beautiful lake view and we took walks around the ponds that had fountains in them, which gave off a relaxing soundscape to our surroundings.  But, we never took advantage of the beautiful pool with cabanas….the season just wasn’t quite warm enough for our liking.

Internet, Cell Service?

This park does have wifi that you can purchase during your stay, based on the length of your stay.  We tried it out and it’s fairly good as RV park wifi goes….it had its good days and bad days.  The Verizon signal here is good so our hotspot was worthwhile.  T-mobile also worked well here.

Amenities and Playground

We also took advantage of the many amenities available that the kids could enjoy.  We shot hoops, played miniature golf, tennis, air hockey, and spent time at the playground.  There is a large Activity Center with the Cactus Cafe inside for dining, as well as the Trading Post store.  And then there is a Family Center with a pool table, tv sitting area, a piano, and some books stacked up on a shelf.  This room is also used as a Chapel, and attached to this building is an Adult Center and a Fitness Room.

We have stayed at this park many times now, and still enjoy it’s atmosphere.  Ranger Kim is the nicest that we have encountered across the many Thousand Trails parks that we have stayed at so far.  And it seems upgrades are always being made here.
