10 Parks near Kountze, Texas

The best part of this park is the website. They have never heard of under promise and over deliver. Its all over promise and under deliver. I was so shocked at the primitiveness of this campground when I arrived. Its not that I wouldn't stay at a place like this but I would be prepared for a low rate. The shock at the difference between website and reality was substantial, hard to win me back once you have me drive 20 miles out of the way. The entrance road is potholed and thin, I'm in a 24' class C, I don't know if I would attempt this in a big rig. I pulled in and found that I couldn't get any of 3 electric outlets to work in row C or the water, I even checked the breaker box and there were no breakers for row C? I then remembered that the man on the phone says that I should pull into row B. The only site I saw in row B had a large wood platform for lack of a better word to combat what appeared to be a giant pond on the site when it rained. Big rains were coming that is why I was finding a place to pull in for the night, so that didn't seem like a good idea. I left a message at the number I had originally called, about the lack of electric and never got a call back. Its 3 hours later, still no call. Fortunately, I am at a state park that let me slip in for 1 night because they felt bad I had been directed to Indian Springs. Seems this is a common response. I went to look at the ladies room, didn't have the courage for the men room, and it hadn't been cleaned in a very, very, long time and if I had to bet on it I would say the hot water didn't work but I didn't check to find out. By the way. As I looked around and tried to get settled the one unit out of maybe 8, that had anyone home, didn't make any attempt to help or console. So friendliness isn't why you go here. The good points. The property is secluded and quiet. There are some donkeys and a cow on property that at least made me feel like I wasn't invisible. The barn, looks nice from what I can see but all the blinds were drawn and big locks on every door. Big Thicket is very close. - TheIntuitionTour

We were in 30A site #20. Much of the park was closed due to flooding, so cannot report on hiking. Sites are narrow. Best for RV's less than 30'. Road in camping area steep. - drfife

This campground is very close to town, which makes it easy to run and get the few things you always forget. (but yet you're still camping in the sticks). Canoeing, swimming, biking, and hiking in park. Sites are very close together, but level. Most have very good shade and cover between sites. Others are better suited camping with a friend. No 50 AMP or sewer. Staff was polite and helpful, with the exception of one grumpy ranger. He insisted that I come check in prior to finishing eating breakfast at 8:30AM. (we had reservations, pre-paid and showed up after the 5PM closing the night before). Just one guy having a bad day. We would return. - HJH

This is a great smaller campground in a large park. Sites are a bit at an angle for water control, but paved and smooth. Fire boxes all have benches placed closely for a good view. The trails, though marked, are still a bit confusing, but show a lot of the beauty of the park. Trees are tall and offer great shade. We loved it here and would come back. - Red Wolf Deux

Easy access from Hwy 96. Park roads are asphalt or gravel. Sites are level, gravel and adequately spaced with some concrete. Utilities are up to spec, Wifi was mostly reliable. Nice staff. Our stay was short and didn't get to see all of the park, but we'll be back. - duster340

This is a small, friendly park. The owner was very helpful in putting us where we could get in and out easily in our big rig. Close to Wal-Mart and restaurants. - candw

This is a very clean and neat RV park off of Hwy 96 Bypass. Very close in to Lumberton, to Beaumont , Silsbee (town), and extremely close to a Wal-Mart Super Center (for convenience). There seem to be quite a few monthly/regular residents, but apparently they are told to keep their sites neat and clean and they do. There is none of the look of long-term residents, yet one knows there are some. There are two shower houses (hubby says they are clean) and a wash-house with 3 washers and 3 dryers, all newer, in good condition and only $1.25 per load. Beats a laundromat for sure. Also, there are a few cabins to rent. Have not seen inside, but they look nice. Near the laundry area. The owners are friendly and willing to do what they can to make you happy or help you out. There are tall pines for shade, free Wi-Fi (and it comes in great) and picnic tables at the sites. All sites are cement, with patio areas on some premier sites. It is close to the highway and thus noisy from the traffic sounds, but one shuts them out quickly. Everyone here is so very friendly and it feels: good! I like it here. We are staying for a month of more. The rates are very good. It is not fancy, but well kept and the owners live on site. You can call if they are not in the office and they'll be right there. I would highly recommend this park. - GIniaJM

Good for an overnight or a few days in the Beaumont area if you will be touring the area. Mostly filled with long term residents but there is a FHU (30 or 50 amp) pull through section with roomy sites in the back of the park for short term RVers. Sites were level and plenty wide and long for our 36 foot toy hauler so I would say the visitor section is big rig friendly. We had the best site with not only a picnic table but also a deck. Most had only a picnic table. Cable TV, WiFi (although it didn't work well in the back of the park where we were) clean bathhouse, laundry ($1 wash. 25 min; $1 dry 40 min...I was really happy to see this info listed, because many parks do not give price or times for their machines), shade in some of the sites, dog walking designated area, small clubhouse, no pool or activities that I noted. The park brochure provided good info about stores, churches, and attractions that were nearby and the friendly host told us how to get to the state inspection station we needed. Offers discounts for TACO, Good Sam, and AAA. We would go back if we wanted to tour the Beaumont area in the future for a few days. - TX Camper

Somewhat level site (made it work). 50 amps didn't work - management replaced the breaker, and thereafter it was OK. Good as an overnight. - MaryAnnFrederick

I would love to see this park in the Spring. Pleasant one night stop over. Free candy in the office was a pleasant surprise. Wish we could stay longer. - Jim M.

One of the worst overnight RV parks, mostly permanent resident lived there, most have old trailers and the owners didn't really take care of their site and trailer. No safety because anybody can drive into the campsite. Do not stay here if you want a good night's sleep, it's very noisy from highway. - dije1208

We only stayed here overnight on our way to Houston. The location is convenient in that it's right on I-10, but the traffic noise from the highway is extreme, including all night. The RV park is literally at the end of the exit ramp from I-10. Sites are a mix of grass and sand and gravel.
Most of the park is occupied by permanent or long-term trailers, some clean, some not-so-clean. You can go fishing along the lake, but I wouldn't call it relaxing, again because of the proximity to the interstate. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.
Although the price was right, we would likely not stay here again due to the highway noise. - LifeRebooted

The website is much better than reality! The lake is spring fed and was an old sand pit. All except about 4 sites are filled with permanent trailers. Most are old and trashy. One trailer still has the truck (filled with trash) attached and looks like it hasn't been moved in many years. Water park is small, water looked dirty and they need clean up and repairs. Costs $14/day/person ($8.00 for 1 hour) for use of the three water slides! Miniature golf was cute, the water feature in it is dirty and smelly - costs $4.95/person! Pirate ship in the lake is neglected and needs paint. Costs $4.00/person to go swimming (included with camping rate). Camping is $22/night for two people and $4.00 extra each person over 2 years old. Contrary to the website it is NOT the finest in recreation or amenities and the prices are not family friendly for the little you receive. The site we were assigned had only 30 amp and the electric plug was broken and hanging out of the utility box. The water faucet didn't have any handle. Sewer drains are open with no covers and there was a very bad sewer smell at night. Had to be careful to watch out for the huge ant nest next to our site and our dogs picked up fleas. Entrance is paved, single road to sites is dirt/gravel. Looks like a few sites had new concrete pads poured?maybe some improvements are beginning? But there are no ?state of the art? sites like the website says are coming soon. This is really just a ?fish camp? used by the locals - definitely not an ?RV resort?. It is also right next to I-10 so you hear trucks and car noise all night. The staff was neither friendly nor unfriendly ? just didn?t seem to care. We will not return. - paularonson

Very friendly owners...gravel interior roads and sites are partial grass and rock...scenic its not, but functional yes...E/W/S are clustered around utility poles so rigs are backed in toward poles and spacing is tight and different than the typical site. - Bob Woodall

Access is good, sites are reasonably level concrete with adequate size, on-site "roads" are very bumpy, management friendly and operates a Mediterranean food deli just off-site (yum, yum!), a railroad across the street was silent except for one train in daytime, laundromat looked clean and very usable, but this is anything but gracious suburban living. We'd use it again. - DelK

Our rate was a weekly rate. It was very rainy the whole time we were here so thank goodness they had concrete pads, paved roads, and grass. The shower/restrooms are individual bathrooms which we loved. My wife used the laundry which because there are quite a few long term residents were very busy. The price to wash and dry was very reasonable. We didn't use the pool or the exercise room but we did eat their continental breakfast a couple of mornings. Employees were very nice and helpful. It was difficult to use the dog park because of all of the water. They don't have a problem walking the dogs in the outer grassy areas so it wasn't a problem. Our cable TV connection wasn't working very well I am sure because of the water. We didn't use the Wifi so not sure how it is. We will stay again I am positive. - Bichon 2

We stayed here for just an overnight. What a pleasant surprise. The park is very well maintained with lots of room to pull through spaces. On the way to Gulf Coast RV, we became a bit worried looking at the various mobile home parks that were a very worn. Then we made the turn onto Brooks and over the RR tracks - even more worried - and bingo bango bongo - Gulf Coast RV Resort. VERY NICE surprise.
The park has a pool, a breakfast buffet and small store. Again very nice. - bigben

Definitely a winner being a PA RV park. All pull thru sites that are long and paved. The showers were all separate bathroom facilities. Everything was very clean and landscaping was well manicured. If there was some shade trees the park would have received a 10. Definitely would say here again. - Hey You

Nice, well maintained park. Very clean and well kept grass areas around the park. Some sites have shade while others are mostly open. Appears that a lot of work has been done recently to clean things up. We had a paved pull-thru site with easy setup, leveling and access to utilities. Power, water pressure and sewer all worked well. Park has two sections - up front near the office and farther out by the lake. Both looked to have several well-maintained longer term residents/workers. Appreciate that they asked if I was a veteran and gave me a military discount. No pool but the lake has a couple of boats/canoes that can be used and the lake is a catch/release with no license needed. There is Wi-Fi available along with cable TV - signal is good for both. Bath/showers are individual rooms and are well maintained. There is some road construction that makes getting to the park a little difficult and there could be more signs for the park but our GPS got us there without any significant problems. - Dave Hole

Nice park. Concrete pad, very level. Plenty of room for my travel trailer to stay hooked up to my truck, and park my other car behind. Check in was quick and efficient...very friendly personnel.
Roads are sufficiently wide enough for one rig to pass.
Close enough to I-10, but far enough away so that you don't hear the noise.
I would not hesitate to stay here again.
One thing to remember. When pulling in from the roadway and making your left turn to park in front of office for checkin, be mindful of the white post on your left and make sure you swing wide enough to miss it. I barely did. - Traveling Man 49
Mar 2016 - $20.00
Easy access from I-10, but far enough off to avoid much of the associated noise. Clean laundry room with quick dryers. Nice folks running the place. Paved streets with level, gravel sites. A mix of pull through and back in sites. We'd stay here again. - CharlieB

Very friendly owners. Gravel interior roads and sites are partial grass and rock. E/W/S are clustered around utility poles and rigs are backed in toward poles and spacing is somewhat tight and different than the typical site with only 3 concrete pads for motorhomes. - Bob Woodall

The owners of this campground are very friendly. We were late arriving and they were most accommodating. They have a super nice clubhouse with movie night and other events. We only planned on staying one night, but ended up staying 2 just enjoying the peacefulness of the campground and the friendly owners. This campground is in the process of adding more accommodations everyday. We truly enjoyed our stay there for a great price! - Jerry & Jill Pera
