"Campers" in several different sites had their vehicles in various states of repair. Parts off, one was missing his front wheels while he was performing a brake replacement. Picnic table for your site is right next to neighbor's sewer line. Had 2 showers for over 100 camping sites. Surface roads are large gravel that makes it difficult to walk on. Easy access to I-10. No cable setup. Wi-Fi didn't work on my site, which was close to office. Doubt I will return. - ToyHaulerOne

Close to I-10 so noise is constant but not terrible with fans running. Sites are close but slides were OK and pull through had room to park towed behind, gravel spots but level. Fairly easy in and out with a 45' unit. Park was clean and when we plugged in we had very low voltage but park got someone on it within minutes and after a few loose connections in the box were repaired we were good. - bg3putts

Hot tub could have been hotter. Clean pool and restrooms. This Tango WIFI is not good and a deal breaker. It is an OK overnight stop. - waterwalkin

This is one huge park and extremely busy throughout the summer. It has over 100 RV sites, along with tent sites and about 100 cabins. There are pull through sites and back in sites, along with 30amp and 50amp. It can accommodate big rigs as well. There are no full time residents or park models. It is strictly a family campground. The roads are all paved and the sites are easy to get into. Water is well water and good. The restrooms and showers are nice and well maintained. Wifi is sketchy at some sites, but basically OK. They also have cable TV at all sites. All the RV sites are full hookup.
They have a huge water park, regular pool, playground, and recreation center. The recreation center offers ceramics for guests to paint and T-shirts to color. They also have activities throughout the day, karaoke on Saturday night, and a pancake breakfast every Sunday morning. Summer is very busy and October weekends are filled with Halloween events. There is a lake for fishing and a walking path around the lake as well. They also rent golf carts to the guests.
Since they are Yogi Bear Jellystone park, you will see Yogi Bear, Cindy Bear and BooBoo throughout the day; particularly Yogi Bear for pledge of allegiance, Cindy Bear at the pool, and BooBoo at karaoke and story time. Check out the website: www.lonestarjellystone.com
This park is well kept and clean. The roads are all paved and the sites are well maintained. It has quite a few workampers working there who keep the park running smoothly. I would give this park an Excellent rating. Worth checking out, but if you do not want the crowds, go there before school lets out in summer. If you don't mind the crowds, summer activities take place every day and the kids will love it. - Kerch Family

Park was poorly maintained and had trashy trailers. Too close to the local beer stop and lots of loud trucks without mufflers. Residents let dogs run loose and did not pick up after their dogs. A large number of semi-permanenet residents. - TXiceman

The park owners do not enforce the rules and have dog owners keep their pets on a leash or pick up after them. Campground was noisy due to all of the locals with out mufflers on their vehicles. They also make unauthorized charges against your credit cards after you leave..paid for a full months rent and left after 17 days due to the conditions. - TXiceman

Although we had to wait a while until the office opened over the lunch hour, check was easy and fast. Sites are a little narrow, but all are pull through. This state park has sewer which most do not although sewer inlet is 3-4 inches above ground level which makes dumping a little inconvenient. Only 30 amp in our site but utilities are easily accessible. Restrooms and showers, while a little dated, were clean. Sites are well separated and level. Many walking trails and good birding opportunities. We have been here before and will return. - starwind

Nice park, mostly quiet (they were repairing the entrance bridge and ran the pile driver into the night). Great sites, all level, all drive thru, full hook ups. Some of the trails were closed due to obstacles. Only complaint regards esthetics. Fallen trees everywhere. Wish they would let you gather fallen wood. Nice fires and cleaner appearance for the parks. - rcheathtx

This state park has full hookups and large sites. As a previous post stated the more private sites are on the outside of the loop, but none of the sites are truly private. They do mow a large section around each site, which is great as some parks barely mow around the picnic area. Would love to see a little under growth between the sites for privacy. Beware the water pressure is low and it fluctuates at times to very low. The way the sewer pipe is done makes it hard to completely drain your sewer hose. The park host mentioned that they are in the process of going through the RV sites and trimming up the trees, which is needed as I was not able to pull through the pull thru site because of low hanging limbs. Note that after heavy rain some of the sites have large puddles of standing water. As others have mentioned the bridge into the park is being rebuilt so there is a little detour. Nice hiking trails, but most of them were closed because of being flooded. Great birding area, but the mesquitos were so bad that I could not stay at the wildlife viewing for being eaten alive. There is shopping and restaurants nearby in Sealy and Katy. We camped here in a travel trailer. Would definitely stay here again when in the area. If the sites had more privacy and there was good water pressure I would give this park a 9. - MelindaK

Worse campground we have stayed at during our entire 3 month trip from Wichita, KS to Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. Not clean, site was poorly maintained, entire area smelled of sewer, and they did not take credit cards on-site, only cash. Lucky (?) we made our reservations on-line. Camp consisted mainly of people living there, I think we were the only travelers to stay part-time. Would NOT return under any circumstances. - roamerparty

This is a nice little park. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are numerous long-term residents in the park. Our site was gravel/dirt, and required minimal leveling. The community room was very nice, and the restrooms/showers/laundry room were all shiny and clean. A TACO card gets you a 10% discount. We chose this park because it's near the Texas Renaissance Festival in nearby Plantersville. There are other parks closer to the site, but the ones we saw consisted of an open field with hookups installed; no trees, etc. Rambling Vines has no picnic tables, cooking grills, or swimming pool, but it's a quiet little park. We had stayed here a couple of years ago, and will go back again. - K Graham

Small park just west of the town. Very convenient for the Texas Renaissance Festival (TRF). About half of the residents are permanent. Fairly new park (2003?). Dirt roads and dirt sites. Next to highway but quiet. Very nice manager and family-owned by folks who live on-site. Some pull throughs but mostly back-ins. Lots of shade trees. Easy drive from Houston. Pet friendly and lots of space to walk them. Good selection of restaurants in the town. Met some nice folks also going to the TRF. We camped here on three different weekends in a 40 footer. - r.boylan

Besides my comment, look at the dates of the other reviews. Evidently, many improvements have been made because this is a very nice RV campground for $30.00 per night. All pull-throughs with full hooks. The sites are gravel, level, and well maintained. We were visiting here for the Chapel Hill Bluebonnet Festival which is ten minutes from here.
We would definitely stay here again. - Jloftin

First the pros: Full hook ups, good wi-fi at site, wide sites and easy access off highway. Now the cons: Filthy bathrooms and showers! I could have overlooked the horrible water stains in the showers, but it just masked the dirt. I don't think the bathrooms had been cleaned in a while as dirt was everywhere. There is no full-time attendant, and there is a note stating that due to thefts, they are not stocking the bathrooms with paper products. Makes me worry about my belongings while I'm away. Never saw the attendant, therefore, I never paid anything. It was worth the price. - ETX

We stayed here for a month and have used this park in the past. It was a pasture converted into an RV park with the addition of good FHU facilities. Being on the top of a hill it is normally windy so awnings are rarely used. The 50-amp sites are near the top of the hill on all 8 gravel roads. The park hosts many rallies and normally those attendees park closer to US 290 while others park on the other side of the red clubhouse. You should not have any trouble showing up without need for a reservation. There is no cable so TV is limited to 1 station out of Bryan – College Station. There are small trees at most sites but none provide shade or roof mounted satellite reception. The park does not have a FT attendant so many will pay for their stay using an envelope found in the red club house. It is very likely we will return to this park when in the area. - Workamper04

Owners are wonderful and friendly. Park is 4th generation ownership, very rustic- gravel/dirt/grass driveways and sites with many full time residents. Some sites would be all mud if it rained. Large rec hall but very old. If you use GPS you will drive down a long rough washboard broad so get directions from owner. We did not use or visit the baths/showers. Park is located north of Sealy & Bellville. This park has huge trees with moss hanging, is very Rustic and away from traffic, but shows years of deferred maintenance and updating but CHEAP. - Oooooooo

We stayed with a group of friends and their friend - rallying together. What fun!
Each site had full hook-ups. This also made pack/leave morning easy-peasy for our large group. The gravel roads and gravel sites were mostly level and wide enough for awnings or tents. Trees were trimmed up, but cast nice shade for almost all the sites. Using their garden and eggs, much of our resort-catered meals were produced on the ranch!
Some full time residents are located on the perimeters. Each night was quiet.
I'd recommend reserving a site.
My Verizon coverage was good.
We would return. - AluminumCloud

This park is used for our district rally each year. The park is about the same as it was in 2011 when my wife and I came for our first rally. A lot of projects started but not finished. The park is quite plain jane, although it does have full hook ups. It is not kid friendly. There are another 200 to 250 sites for mobile homes. There are a lot of oak trees throughout the park. Coushatte does offer wi fi to its long term residents, but I don't know the cost. Our camping chapter uses this park at least once a year. - Joceil

When I was looking for a park I checked out the posts on different sites, this park by far had the best reviews. When I first drove through I was taken back by the peacefulness and cleanliness of this park. Since staying here I am quite satisfied by the high standards and management team. Grounds and facilities are well kept and every thing one might need I is nearby; shopping, restaurants, hospitals and more. I would recommend to all. Awesome place. Love it! - Jan B

Brand new park that opened in April of 2010. Not all facilities built out yet. Very quiet area except for closeness of train noise which are not excessive. Very pleasant owner and manager (manager lives on site). Wash house with three washers and three dryers (payment on honor system). Office having Wi-Fi installed very soon. All back-in sites. Some long, some short. Half of residents are long-term. Utilities included in monthly rent. Very shady but had good Direc-TV coverage. Horse farm next door, very pastoral. Low traffic road in front but close to downtown. Good variety of restaurants in area. Super close to Texas Renaissance Festival. Close to groceries, etc. - r.boylan

We read in a pamphlet for Brenham that the county fairgrounds took RV's. Now realize this is not an RV park of any type. The fairgrounds have installed some power, sewer, and water for their guests and open it up to visitors. It is a grassy/gravel area out past the arena. We were the only ones camped there, and you get some road noise, but what made it nice for us is that we could walk our large dogs all over the fairgrounds as nothing was going on at the time. They do have trash cans available, but this may be the only amenity. The man at the office will give you directions, and you probably want to call ahead. It is about 1.5 miles from town on Blue Bell road. Yes, the ice cream factory is down the road, which is a great tour if that is your thing. - C185

The WiFi was down (has been down since May, but our paperwork had the password written in, so we were stumped until we checked into it), and we weren't told, nor we we offered a discount due to this. We were not asked if we were eligible for Good Sam or military discount. Washer ruined a shirt. Washers and dryers were full of black dog hair. We have no animals. Otherwise, pretty place. Nice cement pad. No picnic table. - FullTimeRvGal

This is a brand new RV Park. It is a gated, nice, peaceful park. There are some full timers there but they are not junky. There is a nice place to walk your dog and it has a little lake. The park is a work in progress. The bath house/rec room isn't finished yet. They are also putting in some pull through sites. It is very wooded. Their nightly rate is $45-$60 which I think is a little pricey for the area but it is a very nice place. - hellocamper
