I love Thousand Trails preserves. The sites are mostly back in with a few pull through; both 30amp and 50amp service. Our site had good water and electric. The water quality was good. There was no wifi at the site but only at the activity center. They had a real nice large pool with lots of tables and cabanas off in the grass. Well kept and clean. There is a big playground, mini golf, pickle ball, basketball, baseball field, and activities. There is a small adult center with a pool table and some books. The other center was large with a café and lots of tables. They have a small marina where you can bring your boat and a little beach. They also have long term residents and a couple little communities with cabins that you can purchase to live here. They are pet friendly but do not have a dog park, even though there is lots of room for one. I found a trail that goes into the woods next to the ranger station where I was able to let the dogs loose to get their daily run. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Travel Trailer.
This is a destination park. There is not much around and I think families come here to boat and have fun.

This is by far the nicest TT we have stayed in. A lot of money has recently been put into the park.....4 brand new pickleball courts, and a GORGEOUS pool with cabanas with TVs (a first for us at a TT) to name a couple . The sites are a little run down, still, but this is typical of what we see at TTs. The utilities worked well, and we had a clear shot of the sky for satellite. Conroe is about 10 mins away, and has about any type of shopping or eatery you could want. Highly recommend. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

I totally agree with the last few reviews. I was here 5 years ago and there has been many improvement made here. I have been to many Thousand Trails Preserves some good and some bad this ranks up with some of the best. Only negative is there were only 3 working washers and 4 dryers for all the sites their. The interior roads do need some work. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.
The fire pit by the pool is very nice. Ask a staff member to turn it on.

I stay at this park often and as many people have said on this site they have invested a lot of money to improve the park. The pool, boat docks, mini-golf, wifi and cable. The wifi was dreadful in this park, the new system they put in is very good, however like the cable tv system you have to pay a fee.
I really do like the park, my two biggest complaints for the last 4 years are the sites are not level and the roads are not maintained. Parking a large motorhome requires finding the best site of many bad choices (not level, ruts, no gravel) and then using lumber under your jack pads to get your coach level. The lumber also helps in keeping your jack pads from sinking into the mud due to the lack of gravel in all sites. The roads have many deep potholes that rock and roll the coach. They should remove the asphalt roads and just use gravel. It would be easier to maintain, if they would dedicate a couple of people to maintain the roads throughout the park. I know that the rain this year has exacerbated these problems, combined with the trenching, but this has been a problem for many years and they have yet to do anything to resolve these issues.

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. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.
Very convenient to I-45 and less than an hour's drive to the Houston Intercontential Airport.

As previously mentioned, there have been many improvements. Unfortunately, it is becoming a trailer park rather than a campground. At an informational meeting, we were told they began offering extended stay for people needing medical attention in the area. Now, there are people living there, including families with multiple children. Those people are allowed to select the site they want for the duration which leaves very little for the actual campers. Great area, pretty park, friendly workers--difficult to get a site to fit your rig.
Our cost was for the 50 amp service. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects membership.They have done many upgrades to this Thousand Trails park. First time here in 3 years and was impressed with the changes. They still need more open sites for travelers. Most are taken by "permanents" 50 amp at most sites now w/full hookups. Pool and golf/tennis/pickle ball courts upgraded. marina upgraded also with rentals.

Great pool, putt-putt course, clean restrooms and showers. Staff goes over and above the call of duty - from the front gate, rangers and cleaning staff. They are working on roads but still rough even with 5 MPH speed limit. Had to try several of the pull-throughs to find one level enough as to not have tires in the air. Wi-Fi slow even in the family lodge. Web pages like MSN took 2-3 minutes to fully load. That said, great place to bring kids. Pool, playground and activities were great. Would stay here again, just not in the summer. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

Thousand Trails has poured a great deal of money into Lake Conroe, making it one of their primer properties. The pool is the primary focus of the place. It has been completely redone with lots of places to sit, including several cabanas that each has its own refrigerator and even a TV. The other really big effort has been the enlarging of the cove that includes a new swimming beach. Also, several of the campsites have been freshly graveled and leveled and the electric service in most sites is now both 30 and 50 amp. The restrooms/showers are all being updated as well. There is a new electric policy in place. Since so many sites are now both 30 and 50 amp, and since there's a $3 surcharge for using 50 amps, the campground charges the extra charge based on how the RV is wired. If the RV has a 50 amp plug on it, the extra $3 is charged up front, no matter where you park. If the RV has a 30 amp plug, there is no surcharge unless you park in a 50 amp only site. You might want to know that the pull through sites are the worst in the campground. Not only are they generally rough and un-level, they are "back to back" sites in which your neighbor's slide will practically touch your camper. You'll like this place a lot more if you find one of them and stay away from the pull throughs. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the best Thousand Trails park the we have stayed at. The interior roads are in rough shape but the wide grassy spaces are beautiful. We had a space that overlooked the lake. This park is being upgraded with 50 amp electrical service, re-leveling of sites, and new roads and new sites. They have just finished renovating the pool and hot tub and have just put in a beach and expanded the marina. We will certainly be back.
The $3 rate reflects the 50 amp service. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.

"Clean" restrooms and showers is a relative term. In several of the bath houses June bugs were very prevalent. They did sweep them up a couple times during our 11 day visit. They weren't horrible but they could have been better. Our rate reflects having to pay for 50 amp service. Some Thousand Trails camps charge for it, some don't. They had several activities, some for kids and some for adults. Lots were somewhat level. Thousand Trails says they are making improvements to this park. There was evidence of gravel that will be put down soon. Don't know if it was all for roads or if they would also try to level out unit parking areas. They have several new cabins. Good access to the lake for boating activities. We would come back. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Travel Trailer.

The rate cited is the Thousand Trails rate for a 50 amp site. Yes, the roads are rough, but this is a campground after all. Miniature golf is clean, pool is clean, spa/hot tub is outside and clean. Waterfront is in good condition (fire ants included). Maintenance was on the spot with handling calls and getting things done. Willis and Conroe are close enough and there are lots of things to do nearby. Some of the 50 amp sites did experience high voltage a couple times but the EMS kept us from harm's way until the voltage went back down to normal. Water was a problem one day as a camper drove over a stanchion and broke the water and electrical off which required a brief shutdown to repair. Some of the sites are narrow and side by side, sharing stanchions, but there is plenty of room to set up on the opposite side. We have been here before and enjoy the campground for all that it is...rough roads included. When you do get torrential rains they do affect everything, everywhere, not just the campground. Basically, the campground drains very well but you can find some low spots that don't; not a huge issue. The entire staff was friendly, courteous, efficient and helpful, even when busy. There are seasonal campers here but we have never had a problem finding a great site to set up our rig. We will return another day. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.
