Great park, we camp here often. Lots to offer, especially for the price. Pool, hot tub, mini golf, lake access. They are currently making a lot of improvements too. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Travel Trailer.
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.

Met by friendly staff/camper at ranger station. First glance of the entrance was very nice well groomed. We were told to drive around find a spot we like then finish checking in. I liked that. Most premium spots already taken that offered 50amp ($3.00) a day. Plenty of 30amp. We ended up moving spots twice. Both times the utilities were in bad repair. We ended up with poor water pressure,and like most a dump connection that ran up hill. Not good. We had to step out onto our picnic table from our coach to jump to a dry spot due to flooding when it rained, and it does. The interior roads are dirt and rough broken asphalt with sever unmarked hazards in the corners. They are selling off parts of the park to Encore and private parties. This place is in need of serious repair and attention. It's a gamble if your stay will be good. For me I had mechanical problems and was stuck there. I will pass on this park in the future.

This park is sad and run down. We thought about staying there for 2 nights and possibly joining the TT zone. But the park was so run down, we only stayed one night. The asphalt roads have pot holes and ruts that it twist your rig as you are driving. The sites are mostly gravel, and grass. The pull thru sites are very narrow and show as back to back sites. They should just be single sites. I'm sure this was a very nice park back when it was developed and could be a nice park again if they would put some effort into maintenance, but I didn't see anyone working on any thing. The pool was clean, but needed resurfacing. They have put put golf, but be careful not to trip on the uneven sidewalks or fall into the large holes by the course. I wish this had been a nicer park. We will not be back to this park. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.
What's not to like about this park? Right on the lake, boat docks, big rig sites with ample room, friendly staff, pool and spa. Only thing we found wrong with this park was one restroom building only had cold showers and the other one was closed. We would return. Verizon 3 bars 3g ATT 4bars 4g Rate reflects members rate.

Terrible, jarring roads, could cause damage to rig if not careful. Sites were horribly un-level. Management is not visible; rules not enforced allowing campers to do whatever they want. Saw one site with 1 trailer, 3 cars, and 6 tents. Noise was obviously a problem. No control whatsoever and lack of caring on part of the workers. Bad, bad experience. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.
We always enjoy this TT park. Were here for two months. Rate reflects TT membership. Bathrooms are 6 of 10. Verizon coverage is 3 of 5 bars. They claim WiFi from activity center is good :on the hill" - in the G-section, however we could not get a reliable signal in either G-5 or G-9. Just completely re-built the hot tub; it is VERY nice. Gate staff is GREAT! We'll be back next winter! We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.

What a nice place! We enjoyed the preserve and will be back. It was a bit cool for the pool, but it is quite inviting as was the hot tub. The roads are in need of repair, and the site we were in wasn't quite level, but it wasn't real bad and our leveling blocks were sufficient. We recommend this preserve.

We are TT member, so were staying on per-paid nights. Very nice park. Friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful sunsets over Lake Conroe. We stayed in Site E-17 for 2 weeks. Very nice, big lot. In that section backs to trees and is very quiet. Verizon coverage 2-3 bars of 5. Recycling for aluminum cans only, no plastic recycle = disappointment. Nice and clean pool. Showers 7 of 10. We would return. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate reflects our membership dues . We have camped here before and the only improvements we could see that they have made are 50 amp sites. There are so many now that it's hard to find a site that you don't have to pay extra for. In the area with the 30 amp sites the roads were full of potholes and the sites were full of ruts.

The roads in this park are TERRIBLE, no maintenance in quite a long time. The restrooms and showers are clean but well used, show age. Sites are showing age and no repair of sites. It is quiet here and shopping is close by. The lake is way down and no fishing or boating is going on. Rate guessed on membership. We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects calculated cost of membership in Thousand Trails. This is a large, quiet campground that shows average maintenance effort on utilities, grounds, buildings, etc. It is gated and secure. The sites are spacious (except for pull-through, shared services) but "lumpy." On the positive side: you can just keep moving forward/back and side-to-side and you are pretty certain to get perfectly level. (Grin). Bad interior roads; some broken pavement, some gravel. Absolutely and without a doubt the WORST Wi-Fi I have ever seen: a strong signal but little/no internet access; with 5 bars I was able to connect maybe one time in twenty tries, then stay up for no more than a few seconds. When I asked park staff about the quality of the Wi-Fi their answer was: "Yes, it is bad. No, we are not working to make it any better." We camped at Lake Conroe / Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.
