Price reflects C2C membership. Campground was somewhat challenging to find. GPS does not go directly to the campground. Go down Longstreet Road turn on Sandy Cove to go into campground. But it is easy to get into. There is a security gate at the entrance to campground. This is a standard "parking lot" style campground.There are several different areas of campsites. The sites closest to the lake are reserved members. There are sites throughout an area with many trees. These sites were smaller and had mud around them. We chose a larger site in an area with very few trees. The sites near us (#100-118) easily handle big rigs. It would have been more challenging to get into some of the lower sites. Sites are very close together. There was room in our site for the truck, 5th wheel and jeep. Gravel and Asphalt roads through the campground. Sites are level. Some of the sites have picnic tables. Our site was not large enough or level enough for a table. Nice pool area, but the pool is not heated so it was too cold to swim. Laundry room is available, however, half the washers and dryers were out of order. Good Verizon coverage. Easy to get DirecTV satellite. - Priceless RV Adventures

There have been some improvements in the park recently, specifically, concrete pads in some sites. The problem is the approaches to these sites is soft sand, so when it rains, getting in and out is incredible difficult. The roads are abysmal at best. Major washouts which are simply left. A very nice clubhouse, but campers are not allowed to use it. Instead, it is rented for weddings, etc. and permanently set up for such venues. Consequently, it is simply a place to park an RV and stay at one's own site. A disappointment. The sites have such a drop-off, picnic table is not useable, and not enough room to even sit in chairs outside. - work no more

Most sites are occupied by permanent residents. Restrooms worked, but needed a lot of repair. The laundry was mostly out of commission and looked ratty. Sites were generally large and well spaced. Beware backing into sites on the uphill side of the road. The site may be level, however the approach for some sites requires ascent of a short, but steep grade. Many RV's scraped bottom leaving long scratches in the concrete.
Pedestals had no circuit breakers. Even though I was on a concrete pad, I picked up an ant infestation. Roads are rough and narrow with little room to maneuver.
One section of the park is in a level grassy field. The other section overlooks the lake and is on a nicely wooded hillside. Nights were quiet. WiFi worked well except for the two days it was down altogether. I would be reluctant to camp here again. Rate for ROD is $0. - Morpauwe

As others have said, they just added a large pool area with cabanas and a gas fire pit. It is very nice!
I was able to find a nice spot overlooking the pond.
The boat docks have been rebuilt and are very nice.
The laundry was out of service when I was there which was a MAJOR inconvenience.
The lodge was not new, but was OK.
We were very happy with this park.
My only complaint is that their rules state that no child under age 14 may be out alone. Campgrounds are normally more of a "free range" place for kids 10 and up.
They did not complain that my 12 year old was at the park with the younger kids. But it posed a problem when they had to use the bathroom and were not allowed in the buildings unaccompanied. The ranger actually followed us to the pool on a 70 degree day to make sure that we knew that the kids were absolutely not allowed in the hot tub at all. (which was what we were planning on doing. We were the only people there are both parents were present). Our kids jumped in the icy pool once and then stood under the showers to warm up because it was so cold.
Also - LOTS of FIRE ANTS. I got bit every time I went to my hookups because there was a big ant hill right by my sewer hook up.
The pool area was landscaped with rail road ties that were treated with something that sweat our the chemicals and stained our clothes. It was sticky and gross. - mmette00

This is the second time we stayed at this large TT campground and they continue to make many improvements. The amenities are excellent-great restrooms, beautiful large pool and hot tub, lots of activities for families to do; a playground, putt putt, horseshoes, tennis, basketball, lake with marina, fishing, etc. They just completed cable installation but it will cost, like the Internet. Also, they charge $3.00 per night for 50 amp. Now they can work on upgrading the roads and sites as there are some pretty rough patches. The best thing about this park were the friends my son made while there! Everyone was very friendly. He had a blast and we would definitely return. - Jeni

Thousand Trails/Encore has made substantial improvements to this park and more are underway. The bathrooms have been totally reconstructed and are very clean and modern. The pool area has been redone with new landscaping, hot tub, cabanas, lighting, sound system, etc. There is a new dock system on the lake. They are currently installing what appears to be cable TV to all the sites and new WiFi access points through out the park. Currently WiFi is available at a cost. We used our hotspot instead. The roads do need work but waiting until after the utilities are updated before doing this makes sense. The lodges could also use some updating but are clean. Others have complained about the lack of sites but we were here for three weeks including a holiday weekend and there were always sites available never less than 5. They are converting some of the open areas to mobile home sites but this does not impact the availability of camping sites. Excellent Verizon and over the air TV service. Our site was level but this isn't true of all of them although you should be able to level on all the sites. The pull through sites are close together and not the best choice. We definitely will be back and hope that TT continues to make improvements at all their parks. - BobWW

This is a fantastic place to stay with wonderful views. Wide area to use to back into concrete waterfront sites with thick grass. Great place from which to explore Sam Houston National Forest since the road it is on connects into the gravel roads of the park to the north. The pizza place was good, and there is a nice restaurant that would be open in the summers. They had "Steak Night" on Saturday. Nothing for kids on site except fishing. Has a good boat ramp and tie ups. - Tom Rosser

We chose this park as it was close and on Lake Conroe. There are two sets of sites - on the lake and on the "hill" overlooking lake. The hill sites will not accommodate big rigs. The lake sites are $8 more and can accommodate larger RVs. Sites have concrete pads and grass. This is an active boat launch site and most of the RVs had boats. There is a small restaurant that makes very good Hunt Brothers' Pizza. There are no activities other than the lake. Fishing is available on the bank. The people here were very friendly. Your pizza is delivered to your RV. It is about 8 miles from Willis which is the closest anything to the park. - Mrmac8

We really enjoyed our stay. Park host was very helpful and friendly. We were right on the water. The pizza restaurant was good. They had great wings. We will definitely return. It was a like ways from town and very quiet. - Jycpa

Rate reflects one week stay. This park has deteriorated drastically in the past few years. The sign has letters missing and hanging, and the giant potholes at the entrance have just gotten worse, to the point where we will not be returning. The park has become pretty much just a trailer park for permanent residents, with a few sites for transients. There is an abandoned home behind the park that is unsightly. There used to be a nature trail around the park grounds, but it is all overgrown and un-maintained. A very depressing little park, needing lots of TLC. - Cockapoo Lovers

Not the best we've stayed at, but decent. More than a few pot holes on the road leading to pull throughs. Sites were narrow and a little cramped. The man that checked us in was very nice. - renthal

We stayed at this park for a week. The rate reflects price with Escapees discount. The pull-through sites are long, relatively level and gravel. There is a small lake with a lighted fountain and you can walk around the entire lake. Some sites have trees. Access in and out is easy. There is a jam session held each week and Alma (the female of the couple who manages the park) has a beautiful voice. We would stay here again if passing through the area. - Guinness

We left after several hours. It is a place for permanent housing in very old RV's. Dirt road, very crowded and overall unsightly. - susvie

Rate reflects monthly stay. Overall I would love to really, really like this park but a few things conspire to prevent that. First the good. The park has a terrific location with beautiful views of Lake Conroe and immediate water access right behind your RV. The pool and hot tub are clean but we did not get a chance to use them. The office staff appear nice enough but not overly so. In fact, if you stay a while you will learn how little they respect their customers. There is a beautiful little "island" (really a peninsula, but they call it an island) at the back of the park with great opportunities for fishing. A fenced dog walk area and child playground are in place and appear to be well maintained. That's the good parts. The bad starts with the pot hole infested entrance that resemble roads you would find in the oil patch. The Wi-Fi works, but is easily overwhelmed and rarely has enough bandwidth to work at all. The restroom are "cleaned" daily but not very well and are very out dated. Spider webs and insects occupy every one other than the one in the office. The cleaning lady is rude. The office lady and cleaning lady went on and on about how rude their tenants are, then began gossiping about various tenants. Again, this was an overheard conversation. Someone should tell them that this behavior is extremely unprofessional. Prepare to have to wash your RV after staying here as the dirt roads will have them dust covered after a few days. which begs the eternal question, "Why, of why don't RV park owners get a clue and PAVE THEIR ROADS??" All in all, I would say we will not likely be back to this park. There are much nicer parks in the area. While a beautiful concept, this under managed park just doesn't live up to it's promise. - carpedebass

We are Passport America members and rates reflect that. This park has very generous rules regarding PA stays. Sites are a little close together, gravel sites with grass, no slabs. Picnic table at each site. Overall, a nice park with extremely nice and helpful employees. Effort is made to minimize potholes and maintain dirt/gravel roads. Pool looked great but it was too cool to use. Spa is just sectioned from pool so water is not warm/hot. Wi-Fi worked well at our site during both of our visits. Many long-term residents, some of whose sites are dirty and/or unkempt though not to extreme we have seen on some of our travels. - nana&papashepp

On the park website is a VERY old picture. The nice sandy beach does not exist - overgrown with grass. The pool area offers NO shade - unless you go inside the "clubhouse" and it has little to offer besides shade. I did not use the bath house but I did look inside - it appeared clean. The sites are very long and narrow. There are many trees. The pull thru Sites 109, 110 and 111 flood with rainfall. We have been full timers for almost 5 years traveling mostly in the South and this is the first time we have been infested with sugar ants. They are everywhere outside and of course like to come inside. Grrr. The TV hookup is very snowy and we haven't been able to get that issue resolved. We have our own internet and the cell coverage is okay. The nice lake has NO FISHING signs posted everywhere! Their are several pipeline workers here, so it is very quiet during the day and evening. We are here to visit family and this location is good for that reason only. A week is the minimum stay. We are here for a month $495 + electric. Probably have to stay here again to visit family. This is better than most in this area. - JMTP

Don't let the slick web site fool you, this is a mobile home park for RVs. Located between a busy and noisy highway and a boat storage facility. We sat in a puddle of water for a week. The long term occupants have an attitude toward those of us just stopping to visit family. Had to drive 20 miles to get propane,since the park didn't have it. The office staff was not helpful at all. We interrupted her lunch and she was not happy at all. Would we stay there again, no way. On the good side, and there is one, great Wi-Fi. - kimble

Lots of lake front sites. All cement roads and long pads. Nice trees and grass around wide sites. Almost all sites are monthly. Minimum stay is one week. Friendly office staff. Laundry was clean. No clubhouse. Very quiet. Great sunsets over Lake Conroe. - jbrucemagon

This park is much less appealing than represented on the website. Sites are not level and slope down to the water. Water, electric and cable were good. Lots of full timers with unkempt sites. - Breeze32tx
