Only stayed for three nights but we enjoyed our stay ... the park is clean and neat. Plenty of grass for the dogs, small pet area but plenty of place to walk them including a trail. Locals that are long term keep their places clean. Excellent wifi, trash pickup. 4 or 5 wide pull throughs. Will definitely stop on our yearly journey to Mesa. We camped at Forest Retreat RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed three nights at the daily rate - $60 less 10% Good Sam discount is $54 per night, all in. We then decided to stay a month because we have resident friends close by (10 miles away from the RV park) and paid the monthly rate of $590, not including $100 deposit towards our one-month's power usage. The park management would not convert our paid three days into the monthly rate. This is the most expensive RV park I have ever been in. There is a leash-off fenced dog run with a bench seat and bags to pick up after the pets. Access to the park was quite easy and our RV is 45' plus we tow a Chevy Avalanche - overall we are about 72'. We unhooked the tow after entering our assigned parking spot. Garbage pickup every morning - leave the bag near the street. About 90% of the residents are monthly tenants. In a week there have not been but about five empty spots in any day. The other parks in the area are much cheaper and generally are full this time of year... if you can fit your RV into them. We camped at Forest Retreat RV Park in a Motorhome.

A great park, but highway construction makes it a bit challenging getting in and out unless you know the area. Some exits and entrances are closed. I would urge anyone coming from I-45 to call the office for the best directions. Staff was just great and so helpful. McCleskey is a small, not well marked one block street off the service road. If you miss it, you have to go a long way through some challenging roads because of construction. Everything paved, level, immaculate with good wifi (lots of towers around campground) and great cable. Easy propane fill for motorhomes. Just a block off highway, but noise was not a problem. Our campsite was a little close to our neighbor - awning almost touched his slide, and his sewer was right in our face as we exited our door, but many of the sites were more spacious. No grills or picnic tables. Nice community room with library, comfortable chairs, flat screen TV, Keurig coffeemaker available at all times. Good exercise room. We camped at Forest Retreat RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is our second overnight stay here and really like it. The bathrooms are plentiful, spacious, modern and very clean. Cement pads and roads. Good size for us. It accepts ROTTWEILLERS WHICH gives it high marks with us. We don't travel with our dog, but I get very upset at RV parks that have blanket breed restrictions. This park would be perfect EXCEPT we never could get WIFI. Very weak and slow occasionally. We even tried it at non peak times but still could not get strong enough signal. We noticed a lot of mifis in the park so others may have issues also. Love the free ice. Like I said, of over 200 RV parks visited, thus one would be perfect if the wifi worked. We camped at Forest Retreat RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of the best parks we have ever stayed in. All sites are paved and level. The Wi-Fi work great and cell phone coverage was good. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Site price included FREE ice, coffee in the game room, and fax service. The grounds are very clean and well maintained. This is one RV resort that we will return to when we are in the Houston area.

Deluxe pull-thru sites have cement pads for coaches, small cement patio, and larger grassy area between sites. Park well maintained, very clean, excellent Wi-Fi connection, and friendly staff. On past stays here, laundry and showers were clean & well maintained, but haven't checked this trip. Pet friendly and far enough away from freeway to be very quiet & peaceful. Good Sam discount.

I gave it an "8" primarily due to the cost. We had Good Sam and got $5 off. Our site was a "deluxe". I would hate to see what the "premium" and "ultra" sites cost. The park is nice. Sites are cement, with cement pad for car parking. This is the first park we have seen in the last 500 miles that is almost sold out. It is near some of the hospitals in Houston. Free WiFi and a free DSL line in the day room. No charge, and allowable, to wash your RV at your site. But, you can't wash your car. Very nice dog park. Nice outdoor pool, but I would expect a hot tub and maybe an indoor pool at this price. No picnic tables. They have a central area for a campfire. It is less than a mile off the highway and you have no highway noise. We camped at Forest Retreat RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is based on monthly. WOW! This is one nice park! Clean, neat, friendly, free cable, Wi-Fi and ice. When we first arrived, I had an open ground error on my EMS. Within 1/2 hr the CB and plug were changed and we were good to go. Grass is green, cut and trimmed every week. There is just nothing negative to say. We camped at Forest Retreat RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park. Concrete pads and patios. Private, tiled and large size bathrooms that are much nicer than most home bathrooms. Friendly staff. Clean park. The grandchildren loved the pool. Close proximity to major shopping, restaurant and recreation. We camped at Forest Retreat RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park lives up to its high rating. Now if only all the people who walk their dogs, rev their Harley's and smoke outside did as the resort rules request. Very nice facility. Definitely plan to return. We camped at Forest Retreat RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in this park for 1 month. Rate for the month in a deluxe site was $520 plus electricity. The electricity was $169. This park is very clean. There is a pool and a laundry area. We did not use either. The park is quiet and full of mostly older people. There were very few children. The cable TV is great, however the Wi-Fi was spotty at best and nonexistent most of the time. There is only one dumpster at the entrance to the park, however, if you set out your trash between 8 to 9 in the morning, they will pick it up. There is plenty of area to walk dogs, however there is no "dedicated" dog walk area. No trash cans other than the 2 dumpsters at the front. Very nice park and we will stay there again.

Very clean park. Well maintained. Wi-Fi not adequate except during the day when full timers at work. To get HDTV, you must have a new TV with a special tuner, otherwise the signal is standard 4X3 type. According to the manager, the owner doesn't want to spend the money to upgrade the Wi-Fi. No phone lines available. Rates just increased. However, the owner seems to be putting that money into their pockets, rather than upgrading the facilities to what they advertise. I did speak to the manager about this. We camped at Forest Retreat RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great campground. We really enjoyed our stay. The ambience is very nice and it is not too far from Houston. Lots of things to do and there is a nice park nearby. The free ice is nice and the amenities are excellent. We camped at Forest Retreat RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice new park with nice office staff. All paved and fair amount of long term guests. But all sites clean and neat with nice looking rigs. We would stay again. We camped at Forest Retreat RV Park in a Motorhome.
