9 Parks near San Felipe, Texas
Feb 2016 - $32.00
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

Will Never stay here again. A lot of permanent type trailers and very trashy. Crammed in between other campers and absolutely NO room. Nothing around....just off the highway. Showers in restroom were moldy and disgusting. You would be much better to spend the night at Walmart or a truck stop. - parton123

"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

We stayed here as part of a club rally. The park is far from main highways, and the entry road is a bit rough. The park itself is filled with beautiful live oak trees, and the sites are spacious and covered with overgrown gravel. You have to be a bit careful in some sites to navigate around trees. The hookups have 50A. Satellite TV is difficult due to the trees, but a number of channels from the Houston area are available via antenna. There is not cable as far as I could tell. Wifi was very good, although we were very close to the office and meeting buildings. We did not use the rest rooms or showers, but they appeared to be clean although old. The meeting building we used was old but clean. This is a get away from it all type park, but you have to bring your own entertainment. - McLee

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 is a great campground for people of all ages. We stayed here in a motorhome. The people that work there were very helpful in finding our site after dark and helping us get set up. The water park (which was heated) was open and we were so glad the kids brought their swimsuits. The park felt so safe and the kids rode their bikes all over. The girls loved the playground, putt putt golf, and the activities on Saturday. We'll definitely come back. There's so much for the kids to do and my husband and I enjoyed some down time. They also have a really nice store to buy things we might have forgotten or Yogi souvenirs. We loved being able to build a campfire at our site. Thank you Lonestar Jellystone Park for making our weekend wonderful. - Bastion

Weekend stay with the kids. Improved water park and swimming pool. New putt-putt golf and lots of planned activities. Golf cart rental is pricey, but a nice amenity for moving around the spacious park. Lots nice new cabins, but the RV sites need improving next. Surprised by the daily rate - it doesn't include any persons. All persons are an extra $8/day - just know going in. Family of 4 daily rate goes from $45 to $77 in a blink. The kids had a great time at this park, so that's what matters most. We will visit again, but I do hope they have some planned improvements for the RV sites. - Gulf Coast Time

For an "in-town" RV park, Katy Lake is a great choice. We were in Katy to visit a friend who lives 5-10 minutes from the RV park, so the location was perfect for us. We're not fans of crowded RV parks with lots of sites crammed together, but we knew what we were getting into so I can't really complain. There's enough room to open your awning without hitting your neighbor, but not much more room than that. Our pull-through had a paved car parking pad next to the RV, so with our car next to us we had very little camping space (not unusual for a park like this). The $39 per night weekly rate for full hookups right in Katy close to everything is a good deal. Right outside the RV park is every store you could need, in the typical suburban never-ending strip mall frenzy. There is a very nice 1/2 mile paved path around the lake, and a nice fenced dog park that's bigger than most, but apart from that there's no good place nearby for longer dog walks. The WiFi worked intermittently and was usually too slow to be useful to us. Verizon and AT&T both worked great. The RV park entrance on Morton Rd. is quite uneven, so you may want to take the turn slowly to prevent dishes from flying out of cabinets. The park is gated and you need to pay a $50 refundable deposit for the remote gate opener. They also give you a code to get in with the keypad near the gate, but there is no way to get out without the opener! There's no keypad inside the park, and the gate does not automatically open when you approach from inside. One morning (before the office opened) the gate was apparently malfunctioning and we couldn't get out of the park--no remotes would open it. Eventually some other stuck RVers manually pulled the gates open so we could all get out. Due to the great location and reasonable price, we'd return here. - LifeRebooted

ZERO wifi unless you go to the clubhouse. TV was good. Park is very nice but seemed to have some sort of drainage problem but the park was attentive to draining standing water and such. People are extremely friendly. Dog facilities were amazing! My girls loved going to the dog park. There were as many as 6 dogs at a time there and they all had a blast!! We also used the dog wash and it was equally fantastic! The wifi is the only deal breaker for me. - hap

Park clean, well organized with good utilities and connections. My major problem is with rules and regulations. Individually each item could be overlooked - but collectively the result is we would not stay here again.
1. wi-fi worthless. I was only able to use it for an hour or two very early Sunday morning.
2. Must wear a red rubber wrist band when walking or hiking around in the park.
3. There was a "$50.00 five day advance notice deposit." printed on invoice. Explaination not real clear but apparently you must notify them five days before departing that you will be leaving as planned? We were only staying one week so we called on the first day to let them know when we were leaving.
4. They required copies of BOTH of our drivers licenses. On departure we insisted on getting them back with our deposit.
5. They required an emergency information contact name and number.
6. Not real sure when they were used but they had two wheel boots. Just like to ones PD's use for illegal parking.
7. Web site rules and regulations includeed this statement "If law Enforcement is called for any reason other than medical or fire emergency you will be asked to leave at that time with NO Refund or prorating of your site cost." This can be read to mean that if "I" call PD for gunfire at neighbors site - I would be told to leave and forefet remaining balance.
8. Lots of normal rules and regulations - most not enforced as far as I could see. Example - dump hose elevated on stand not enforced. Other rules kinda weird like three plant limit.
Otherwise as previously reviewed it is a nice park. Just needs some management/owner policy reviews to be more in line with what travelers expect. - ctpres

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

Mostly permanent residents with some campers and sites in dirty condition. There are trees but some make entering site very hard. Not a good place for large rigs. Campground grounds are not well kept. Sites are very close and one side of campground is very hard to drive into to occupy site with no outlet sign and no turn around. - dagopapa

Most residents are long term. I called this campground by mistake because I wrote down their phone number instead of the one I intended to call. The manager stated that they do not take reservations, but then proceeded to take my information and let me know we would be expected. Access is good and our site was level. There is no disconnect for the 50A electrical outlet - I don't like connecting/disconnecting "hot". Previous reviewers indicated no shade, but some sites are partly shaded. Also, a previous reviewer indicated no big rig access. We had no trouble with a 40 ft. coach and many sites would accommodate any big rig. My only issue is that this is not a $35 per day park. - 2005-Fulltimers

Small park with mostly permanent residents. Staff very friendly and helpful. Restrooms and laundry in a portable building, were in good condition. Biker bar next door has great hamburgers and friendly atmosphere (if you like that kind of thing). If you need a weekend stop in the Katy / Brookshire area for a couple of days, this place will accommodate your needs. Would stay again. - Jim & Vic

This place has a new owner who is very friendly. He has only owned it for eight months. He is obviously working hard to improve. New trees, electrical, road topping etc. Will be interesting to see how it works out. There is road noise, but it is a steady hum.
Lot spacing is nearby with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface is grass. - Tworetired

Park needs some tender loving care. Sites very close together. Park was 95% full of oil field and railroad workers. All hook-ups worked, Very close to I-10 and road noise. Probably would not use again. - corky506

A rundown park that is just for the desperate. Listed in Passport America and over priced at 50% (cash). Freeway noise never quiets down. It is an easy off and on and near a fueling stop. Several permanents that appear to have been parked for a long time. We won't be staying here again. - Arizona Traveler

Pricey, but clean and quiet. One of the nicest RV park in the gulf coast. Well managed and friendly staff. The mangers are very knowledgeable of all RV related things and that saved me $$$ when I needed to get my rig washed & waxed. Never had any problems with knuckle-heads cutting up and bothering others with noise, rowdy kids, etc. like we have in other parks in our travels. Sorry, we're retired and don't have time for that foolishness nor will we tolerate it. Lot of snowbirds here and generally friendly folks. An A+ RV park. - BubbaAndThe Bubbettes

Nice park with mostly full timers or long term. Nicely spaced, concrete. Quality RV resorts runs this one and several others in area. WiFi strong. - rockhill

Fantabulous is all I can say. Wide concrete roads take you to wife concrete pads with mowed grass between and picnic table on concrete patio. No dust and no mud. Bathrooms and shower were spotless, as was the 24 hour laundry facility. The pool was perfect and there were other gazebo's around the park with like new gas propane cookers and cleaned daily. The small lake is clean and attractive. The single complaint with the one star rating? The "longer term" park residents are neat and clean with many there for a month or two. There were no units that said "I'm here for ever" and their site trashed. None of that. What an enjoyable park with wonderful amenities. And the stainless free outdoor dog washing station was wonderful. What a great idea for those of us traveling long distances with a dog. Thanks Westlake!! We camped for three days in a motorhome. Our large pull thru site was #108. Next trip thru Houston we will plan on staying here longer. - Sweatlife
