39 Parks near Highlands, Texas
Feb 2016 - $75.00
An expensive park for a location far outside Houston. They brag about their peaceful surrounding but we could hear the interstate all night. The view from our campsite of the river was very nice but the setup of the campsite was weird. We selected this place because our campsite had a "private" spa/hot tub. What they did not say is the hot tub is on the sewer side of the coach! Not a great location for sneaking out of your coach for a dip in the hot tub when it's on the utilities side of the coach. - Bauernfeind

The park has well kept paved roads easy to navigate. All sites are concrete and most are pull-thru. The back-in sites are near the river. The amenities down by the river are very nice; disappearing pool, gazebo, pier, etc. Sunsets are fabulous by the river. ATT was 5 bars.
We did experience some negatives. The sites are very narrow. If we parked the truck on the side in the intended parking spot, the truck door when opened would hit our neighbors slide. It's a long walk to the river and back. The sites near the river are also narrow, short back-ins, and utilities are on the passenger side. This is ok for class A, but not for trailers. Also the cost is $89 per night for river sites.
Cable TV is provided, but only got 11 channels, so we used our antenna and got many, many channels.
Wifi was also provided but it was too slow for Internet use. We used our hot iPhone hotspot.
We stayed here for location and would not stay again. There are 2 other parks on the same road. - pamula

This is a really nice campground just outside of Houston on Interstate 10, about 15 miles from Houston's city center in a city called Highlands, Texas. It has just about all the amenities one would expect from a resort style RV resort. My site was a deluxe premium site and included a private hot tub and a view of the San Jacinto river. other amenities included
* two fishing piers
* large two story cottages as well as smaller cottages
* Large clubhouse with an infinity pool and hot tub
* Private showers and bathrooms
* Large Laundry room
The only cons I had with this place is it's a tad on the larger size and if you have a site near the river, you will find that the workout room, laundry, store and dumpsters are quite a hike away up to the front of the park. Also trash is not picked up at your site as in some resorts so if you plan on staying by the river, you will have to walk or drive to the dumpsters for your trash removal.
I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone needing to stay in the area. - 2ndHomeTx

Beautiful location, easy access from interstate, and clean. Not friendly staff if you arrive after 6:00 PM with no reservation.
Would probably stay somewhere else next time. $48.75 fee for 50 amp (tight squeeze into site #1 for 38' RV).
Paved roads. Walked dog in shade near office. - cindy d

Very clean park, well maintained and friendly staff. Sites are large and all hookups, WiFi, etc. worked well. - senator47

Chose this park from Good Sam GPS last minute. We were tired and needed to get off road. Office was closed when we arrived at 6:30 p.m. No site map or after hours check in info. We asked a few people going by, they could care less and were rather rude. We followed the usual protocol (left a note and chose an up front open site). The next morning we couldn't wait to leave. A lot of road noise along with vehicles in and out all night does not make a restful or peaceful night. Overpriced, sketchy, and never again. The good: paved roads. - Lunchy

Reservation made for a long pull-thru and was put in a site too short - park was full so we had to unhook in order to fit in the site. Wifi and Cable TV worked okay. - Retired FL CSM

Near the 146 & a Chevron Station, so noise level is high. No restrooms or showers. Lots of permanents who don't seem to think they have neighbors, and can be as loud as they want. Laundry room floor was littered with dryer sheets and a couple of cigarette butts. However, WiFi was great, cable was great, and the owner is one of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. Lots of grass for walking the dogs on. Park is about 20 miles from the Space Center and some great restaurants (Tommy's Restaurant and Oyster Bar had a dozen yummy oysters for $5!) Next time, we'd probably stay outside of Baytown. - OTR again

Clean, quiet park. We have stayed here more than once and would stay again. No cable but the WiFi is great. No showers or bathrooms. Does have a clean laundry facility and a convenience store at the front of the park. We paid a weekly rate of $125. - kellycro

Beware! This park is running a "non-refundable deposit" scam. The reservation section of their website says $25/day with no deposit required. When we called ahead to check on availability for two nites they indicated that they had one site left. They then indicated that if we wanted to reserve the site for two nites that it required a charge to our credit card of a "$50 deposit that is non-refundable." We had no problems with a deposit to hold the site. We understand parks need to protect themselves from holding sites for people who wind up being no shows. Besides, the deposit was essentially our two night camping fee simply paid in advance. Upon arrival they informed us that the rate was $30/day as opposed to the $25/day they post on their website. We were okay with that, it's only $5 difference per day. However, we were not okay with what they told us next. The $50 deposit was NOT going to be applied towards our camping fee of $60. The $50 deposit was being charged IN ADDITION to our $60 camping fee. This brought our total for 2 days to $110, or $55/day. When you challenge them their response is "We made it clear that the deposit was non-refundable." Sure, they tell you it's a non-refundable deposit. Any campground that requires a deposit to hold a site for you makes it clear that if you don't show they keep the deposit. We're cool with that. What this campground DOESN'T tell you is that the $50 non-refundable deposit is NOT applied towards your camping fee. You don't find that out until you've driven all day to get to your "reserved" campsite and you are handing over your charge card to pay for the site. This campground should be avoided at all costs. They are running a "play on words" scam and picking up an extra $50 with every camper who calls ahead for reservations. - ToWanda

This is a nice older park with a lot of permanent rigs. There is a tricky turn around at the office that is not big rig friendly. We had to disconnect the car to get around. Our site (97) was all cement with a shade tree. There is always a breeze and the fishing pier is inviting. The leash rules are not tightly enforced with some dogs off leash most of the time. There is no traffic noise and is close to stores and the Kemah boardwalk. We went with two other couples and would come back again. We enjoyed our stay. - kaydbug

I agree with the last reviewer. We had a site that the sewer pipe was elevated about 18" above ground - made it impossible to drain tanks. New sites going in but they need a lot of work. - old penny

I stayed here for 1 night in a pull through site. Campground elevation is 9 feet. Maneuvering my 40 footer towing a dinghy was somewhat tight. Roads are asphalt, my site & patio are concrete. Site spacing is close. WIFI is included in daily rate. Cable is not available. I was able to receive AT&T Wireless G3/4 Internet & Cellular service. I received Dish Network 110/119 Satellite TV from dish on roof of motorhome. Campground is pet friendly. Walmart and Kroger are 3 mile away. I am unable to comment on other amenities due to not using them. Most of their guests are monthly’s. There are only a hand full of pull throughs and most of them have monthly’s on them. Only 1 Long Enough for Motorhome & Car w/o Unhook. It appears that roughly 90% of the residents here are construction workers in fifth wheels and travel trailers. This is quite different from most KOA’s. It looks like spaces for one and two nights was an afterthought and they squeezed them in. While the sites are concrete they are very close together. There is some standing water 2-3 days after a rain. It is a little noisy from 6 to 7 in the morning and in the late afternoon with all the diesel pickup trucks going and coming. At $43 per night they are way overpriced and will not see me again. - User1688

This was our first time staying here and it was a great place to stay. From making our reservations to our welcome to our arrival from the staff was excellent. We were welcomed by the staff and treated as we were royalty. It is right off of I-10 with easy access, site was level and very clean. We are frequently in this area and have found our home away from home place to stay. We will definitely be staying here often. - Preacher1

This is a great park just outside Houston which lets you avoid the traffic nightmare going through Houston. The staff was 5 star when we arrived; they had everything ready to go. It took seriously 2 minutes to check in, you also received 2 bottles of water and a bag of ice great touch. Staff was super, easy in and out to the freeway, a little freeway noise but not bad. Many parks could take a lesson from them on checking in guests. Great water pressure and they pick up your trash every morning. - tazman1953

Level pull through just long enough to leave the fifth wheel hooked up. FHU with cable and ok WIFI. Fine for an overnight, close to the interstate but road noise wasn't too bad. Office closed on Sunday and our registration packet was missing, but our site was empty. Did not like the large, unneutered male pit bull running loose through the campground. Mix of travelers and workers. - 2hams

Here for work for a couple months. Overall was a nice place to stay.
The good: It's a nice, quiet park and has a security person at night on the weekends. There is a pier you can fish from. The park itself is pretty clean. There is a laundry room which is rather small but clean. The bath rooms were also kind of small but clean. The pool is nice. They will also accept packages if you need something sent, and have mailboxes available. If you need by the month and can get a spot on the inside, it's about 500 plus power, not too bad.
The bad: My biggest complaint -The internet is horrible, had to jump off my phone often. You can pretty much forget trying to use the WiFi when everyone is home from work in the evening and on weekends.
Lots 93-111 are called bay front and they charge premium price, they are not bay front and there may be 2 spaces that you can see the water between the buildings in front of you, so those are way overpriced. (but all the "bay front" are overpriced, in my opinion). Although a better rate than 50.00 per day for daily rates, 700 a month plus power is a little on the high side. There is some trash along the water line on the canal side. - scarlett12

Gated, hot tub, heated pool, free coffee, free popcorn, free air to air up tires, dog walk, dog wash station. Park is well kept and quiet. Rented a pull-through site. No extra charge for trailer, pets (2 dogs) or third person. Managers are very congenial, helpful and on top of everything. Definitely recommend and will be staying again. - Allgood

The park has level concrete spaces with grass and a picnic table, including FHU for 30/50A. Paved roadways throughout. The office staff are very pleasant and efficient. Good Sam discount brings fee to the amount displayed. My 40' Class A and 18' enclosed trailer fit into a pull thru site with room to park your vehicle.
Has a heated pool and jacuzzi with showers rooms available next to the pool area. Secured gate entrance provides security which is always a plus!!
I would certainly stay here again when in the area. Close to shopping for groceries, shops and restaurants. - kihei7

All concrete roads and pads. Pretty landscaped near office. All fenced with security gate. Road construction on N. Lake and Lockwood Rd. could still make it thru to rv park. No Shade all small trees. Stayed overnite on way to southern Texas. This park is off Texas service road. Will stay here again for overnite, but didnt like being in Houston traffic. - Get ready

We stayed here for a month for work. The monthly rate was $675.00 plus electric. The spaces are close and parking was tight. Lots of people parking on the road. The internet is Tengo internet and was slow and sporadic. The laundry facility was nice but you have to buy a card to put cash on. The managers were very nice and helpful. The pool was nice also. - Mhutch

The park is very nice. It features all the amenities at a fair value. However, it was going through some managerial transitions at the time we were parked so there were some issues there that determined my overall rating. I hope they have fixed the issues by now. There was favoritism and subjective rules at the park and the managerial staff was brash and was more concerned with partying with the tenants than managing. The park is kept well-maintained and is a has a beautiful landscape. However, the landscape is new and a little sterile. The roads and pads are all concrete so it is quite hot in the summer. One feature, I thought was nice, is that they have a dog-washing station. I've never seen that before. I would not recommend this park for older adults such as myself as there seems to be a lot of full-time families in the park and it can get quite cramped and noisy. Animals are welcome in the park, however they did not ask me for shot or vet records which concerns me as to welfare of the animals. People were inclined not to pick up after their pets and it seemed that management at the time did not enforce pet rules. There are no fenced in pet areas so there are no places to exercise pets other than in the park itself. The resort is close to town and is gated. However, gates where not kept locked and there is no security on site. The WiFi is sporadic and I had to use my booster to get decent service. - MelK

More like a huge parking lot around a manmade lake. Very pricy for what you get, unless you plan on taking advantage of the recreation activities. We only stayed here because we needed a one night stop and this was the only place that answered the phone when I called after 6pm. Seems that many camp employees man the office on banker's hours. The staff here was very helpful to take my card info, give me the gate code and assign me a spot over the phone, as the office would be closed when we arrived. Close concrete pads with strips of grass between. Costs more for pull-throughs. - vtaylor
