A big, beautiful state park. Sites are well separated, long, wide, and paved. Multitude of hiking trails, beautiful trees, and friendly staff. Only drawbacks, like a lot of Texas state parks, is they only have 30 amp service and no sewer hookups but had a convenient, nearby dump. Plenty of wildlife, deer, raccoons, birds, and alligators. We didn't see any gators but didn't really look either. A little far from the city of Houston, but that's ok unless you are going in frequently. Verizon service for the internet was not available. We would return. We camped at Brazos Bend State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a one of the nicest campground I've stayed in with spacious sites and lots of trees. I don't think there is an undesirable site! It is very clean and very well manicured, the park rangers at the office are the nicest I've ever met and they look happy to work there and reflects in how they treat you! I am definitely going back!

The daily rate for this park is $20, but there is a daily entrance fee of $7/person, so for us the daily rate was actually $34. This is a beautiful park, with wide, wide spacing between RV sites. The sites are paved, wide enough to accommodate an RV and a car, and are reasonably level. Water and 30 amp hook-ups are available. There is lots to do including hikes, and an observatory open on weekends. The big attraction is alligators present in the numerous ponds in the park. The negatives: Of course there are no sewer hook-up, but what do you expect in a beautiful state park? The 30 amp service is "iffy" and we blew the circuit breakers several times. Verizon voice and data connection was very poor -- constantly dropping calls. Satellite connection is blocked at many sites because of trees. We would stay here again, and in fact wished we could have stayed longer on this trip. We camped at Brazos Bend State Park in a Motorhome.

I've rated Brazos Bend a 10 compared to other state parks, not full service RV resorts. Obviously this park does not have the amenities of a commercial RV park but the atmosphere more than makes up for it. This is one of the nicest Texas State Parks we've stayed in so far. Good water pressure and electric power (30amp only). The park is large with lots of walking/biking trails. We stayed three weekdays in not so great weather, so we almost had the park to ourselves. So quiet. No traffic or train noise. The staff was very friendly and efficient. There is an Observatory in the park open on Saturday nights. We plan to come back so we can attend.

$20 per night was for a 50-amp electric and water site. A daily entrance fee is also charged unless you have a $70 Texas State Parks Pass, which is good to cover entry fee to all state parks for one year. Most sites are level with asphalt pads. The park does have many moss covered trees but they wouldn’t provide much shade in the summertime on most but not all sites. There are picnic tables, fire rings, and grills at each site. The park is about one hour south of Houston, which has every imaginable activity. If you like hiking/biking there are over 35 miles of multi-use trails. Fishing/boating is available on the lakes. Alligators are found throughout the park so no swimming is allowed! They have an observatory with four telescopes which has stargazing programs every Saturday. Spacing between the sites is very generous. We received one/two bars 4G LTE on our AT&T cell phone. We used our Millenicom jetpack as a Wi-Fi hotspot and it worked very well. There is Wi-Fi at the office which is 3 miles from the campground. We received over 40 over-the-air TV stations. We camped at Brazos Bend State Park in a Motorhome.

As Texas residents, we have been coming to this park for years. Alligators are abundant on the walking/biking paths but not in the campground, so be very aware of surroundings when on the trails including the paved ones. Snakes, too. Copperheads and other poisonous snakes are abundant in the campground as well as the trails. It is hot and humid in the summer, lots of mosquitoes. But we like this park because the sites are mostly large and private. There are tons of birds and other wildlife. Fishing from piers (no wading!). A playground for kids plus biking, fishing, and the Observatory has stargazing programs. Not sure about the cable because we don't watch TV, but the only place WiFi works is near the office. AT&T phone service has been good when we were here. We always enjoy the Texas State Parks. My only gripe is there are no recycling facilities so we end up having to take several bags of cans, bottles, etc., out with us and recycle them somewhere. I hope this will change soon. We are also hoping to see more solar power in the parks as we have seen in Europe. We camped at Brazos Bend State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our first trip to Brazos Bend State Park and we were very pleased with the park. The vegetation is lush and the trails are extremely well maintained. The campsites were easy back-in sites. Through out the park the sites, trails, and road sides were mowed perfectly. If you like large trees with hanging Spanish moss, lush vegetation, and a few alligators, you will love Brazos Bend.

This is a great, quiet and large state park. The sites are large, level and shaded with large trees. The hiking trails are a bit confusing, but the trail map is a good one. We've seen and heard more birds here than anywhere in our travels over the last three months. And, there are gators; we saw one large one sleeping in the heat right next to the trail. Caution is the word. The data connection with our phone is fair to good, but lets us keep in touch with the outside. We saw no maintenance or park vehicles either day of our stay, but the park is very clean. It's well worth going out of your way. We camped at Brazos Bend State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great park just outside Houston. Sites are spacious and paved and level. Utilities were good and the park rangers were super nice. We have camped here in the past and will again. We camped at Brazos Bend State Park in a Motorhome.

Large sites, but not very private. Plenty of room after you unhitch to park your truck as most sites have paved apron. Great hiking and biking trails, and there is geocaching in the park. Also, the park is known for bird watching. Restrooms were clean, but location did not seem convenient to the camp sites. My Verizon PC card did not work at campsite 127 and my AT&T cell phone coverage was poor to non-existence in the park. Friends in a campsite a few sites over had no AT&T service. Rosenberg is about 15 miles away for groceries, shopping, and restaurants if needed. I would definitely stay here again, but not during hot weather.

This is a very nice state park. We stayed 2 nights and rate is $20 per night plus entry fees which amounted to another $20 . Wasn't happy about having to pay the extra fees. Spaces are spread out nicely , lots of shade trees. No Wi-Fi where we parked , not much of a phone signal either for AT&T. Verizon seemed to work OK. It's very secluded; lot's of tent campers too, but all very well maintained. Bathrooms could have been cleaner, but I guess it was so busy with all the campers. It was still OK though.

Great state park with plenty to do. Excellent hiking trails with MANY geocaches. Most sites are large and paved with plenty of room between campers. Lots of shade. I don't think that the restrooms are easily assessable from most of the sites. We stay here 4 to 5 times a year, but never in the summer because it is too hot. What we really like is that it is only 15 minutes from the house. We camped at Brazos Bend State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The daily rate reflects Texas Passport. Very nice park with large sites. The trails are wide and very well maintained. Alligators sun along the trails so you have to be careful. The restrooms were a mess after a busy weekend and weren't cleaned until Tuesday. This was disappointing. We have stayed here before and will be back.

Pros: There is lots of green space between the sites. The park is very quiet, full of nature sounds at night (owls, coyotes, frogs and crickets). We saw 120 alligators on our hike! There are numerous great, long hiking trails, marshes and lakes, with plenty of wildlife everywhere. The showers were hot and clean. We didn't want to leave this wonderful place. The only con was a daily entrance fee was tacked on to the camping price. We camped at Brazos Bend State Park in a Motorhome.
