This is a members only park. Since we're not members, we were required to sit in on an hour-long presentations which lasted almost two. We're new to RV'ing, we usually take weekend trips within an hour or so from home. Because my husband's work situation has very recently changed, we may not be able to use out RV much for the next 12-18 months. It is not a good idea for us to buy a membership in the near future, if at all. The first gentleman was very nice, trying to sell us on the time-share and giving us a tour. When the second gentleman approached us, we told him our situation. He asked if we would be purchasing a membership. When we said no, again, he said, VERY RUDELY, " Thanks for coming and you can't come back". There was no reason for him to be rude to us. We had already decided that even if it weren't a members-only park, we would not return. It was a big disappointment from the photos on their website. The "sandy beach area" is non-existent. The gentleman told me that the photo on the website is from "20 years ago" and they plan on getting it back to look like that. We were told they are new owners and they have huge plans on upgrading this park. If they do what they say, it will be a very nice place to stay. The basketball court and the RV sites are in disrepair. The first couple of sites we tried to park at were too high and the bottom of our RV was scraping. There was no way we could park there. The electricity didn't work at the site next to the one where we finally parked. If you plan on staying here, make sure you have a very long sewer hose. We were told that the playground equipment was recently put in. I DO NOT believe that for a second. My daughter & I played on it today and it's in good shape but by no means is it nearly new. When I called to make reservations, I asked if they had wi-fi or cable. They said no. The gentleman today said their wi-fi is down but they have it. The restrooms are clean and recently renovated. There is A/C in the laundry room. The park is very wooded with a pretty view of the lake through the trees. Canoe rentals are $25/half day and $35/full day. We camped at Bishop's Landing RV Resort (formerly Castaways RV Park & Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

I read a few negative review after we made our reservations but we were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived. This RV park is very clean with free wi-fi and cable. This park is on a bayou with good fishing for catfish and there are two gazebos to sit under while you are fishing. The Kemah Boardwalk is only a few minutes away. The next time we go to Kemah, we will stay here. We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here, with a riverview site, in a travel trailer for the 4th of July weekend & we plan on making this an annual tradition. This resort is very clean and the view from the sites down to the river is beautiful with a lush green lawn, lots of trees, swings, a playground and a small outdoor amphitheater. There is a saloon and rental cabins, as well as a swimming pool for families and one for adults only. There is a gameroom, clean laundry facilities and the staff is more than friendly. Free wi-fi throughout and cable for an extra $3/night. I highly recommend this resort and cannot wait to return. We only wish there was one this nice closer to our home. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort: Guadalupe River in a Travel Trailer.

This was our very first trip in our new RV. It was a very nice, relaxing weekend. This park has a clean swimming pool and a tent camping area. This is not exactly on the large part of Lake Conroe, but more like a little inlet. We backed in to our site and just a few feet behind out site, we were able to sit in the shade and fish. We didn't catch anything worth keeping but it was convenient and quiet. We camped at Park On The Lake in a Travel Trailer.
