This was our second stay in this county park. As far as most county parks that we have stayed in this was a nice park. The park is at least 30 years old and age is showing. There is an incredible amount of decking with pavilions, etc, that provide easy access to the gulf, but you need to watch for nail heads, splinters (for which they have signs) and partial boards. They have starting repairing the decking, as it is very weathered with many broken boards. There are lots of recreation areas for day visitors as well as campers. The spaces are paved with a patio and most have a picnic table and fire pit. The area is grassy, but our dogs required extensive brushing to remove the burrs. There are a number of palm trees, but the provide minimal shade. From observation, the showers must be in poor condition based upon the condition of outside showers. During the winter months, especially during the week, day visitors are nearly non-existent. The hosts stated that in the summer and on holidays the park can be full. Some of the back in spaces are quite short. Some pull thrus would accommodate a a big rig with barely rum for popups or Scamps. Some TV reception over the air is possible from Houston stations. In the off season it is a very pleasant place to stay. We will go back but not on weekend. The closest real grocery store is an old renamed Kroger on the Angleton Highway about 5 miles.There are a number of chemical plants adjacent, but with the exception of a noon horn, they make little impact. Periodically, large tankers can be seen passing to and from the Gulf less than 500 yards away. We camped at Quintana Beach County Park in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here as we couldn't get into the park we wanted. We have stayed here several times over the past 15 years and although it is showing its age it is still a good park. The staff is helpful and there are separate swimming facilities for children and adults. We have used the indoor swimming and spa in the past but not this time. There is lot of river frontage and you can usually (this time of year) see deer in the park near the river in the early morning. This time of year it is mainly full of longer term campers. It is $35 a night with cable $3.50/day and Tengo wireless at $2.50. They accept Good Sam. The older section has more shade for summer, but the site pads are in worse condition and generally not too level. The park is closer to a resort than many that use that name as it over many activities. We would stay again. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort: Guadalupe River in a Travel Trailer.

We chose this park as it was close and on Lake Conroe. There are two sets of sites - on the lake and on the "hill" overlooking lake. The hill sites will not accommodate big rigs. The lake sites are $8 more and can accommodate larger RVs. Sites have concrete pads and grass. This is an active boat launch site and most of the RVs had boats. There is a small restaurant that makes very good Hunt Brothers' Pizza. There are no activities other than the lake. Fishing is available on the bank. The people here were very friendly. Your pizza is delivered to your RV. It is about 8 miles from Willis which is the closest anything to the park. We camped at Lochness Marina R V Park in a Travel Trailer.
