If your a member of Thousand Trails, the park at Lake Conroe is comfortable. It has a couple of issues the biggest is wifi sucks but the cost is the best and the people nice.

Here is a link to a free public park in Tomball, TX (Houston) that you can stay 7 days a month (have to be out 3 weeks). Great park very clean and secure. No wifi at all.

I always suggest Green Caye RV Park in Dickinson, TX. At $370 a month for full hook-up, it is nice. Look them up.

We have several others in this area. We are not as warm as the RGV, and we are not as cold as Houston and north of there.

Check out RV Park Reviews for other areas around Dickinson, TX.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

We used to go to South Texas, Corpus Christi, and Brownsville. In Corpus Christi we stayed at Puerto Del Sol RV Park right on the beach. It is an old park, but worked for us. In the Brownsville area we stayed at several parks, Breeze Lake Campground, Paul's RV Park, Port Isabel Park Center RV Park (our favorite). There is another RV park in Brownsville that we stayed in once Rio RV Park. The park is Ok, but we hardly fit with our coach. It was really tight. If you're longer than 35 feet I would not recommend it. We found the Texans to be much more friendly than the Floridians (no offense meant), just our experience.

We spent last winter in Texas and loved all of it but the best place was at Lagoon's RV Park in Rockport, just up the road from Corpus about 30 miles. Not far from the beach and the town of Rockport was the BEST. We were there for a month and really enjoyed ourselves. Not the cheapest place but a very nice park, well run.

Before you come to Texas, be sure and have your passport up todate and a properly filled out entry visa form. I can take care of all of the necessary paperwork for you, just send me your bank account number and pass code....Everything will be taken care of......'

South Texas covers a lot of territory. The RGV (Rio Grand Valley) is the most popular area for Winter Texans. That covers an area from approx. Mission,TX to Brownsville. There are 100's of RV Parts along this stretch of hiway. Victoria Palms, in Donna is one of the pricier ones, in the area of $600 a month + elec. It will have more things for the RV,R to do than you would want to do. You can also find spots in the $175 range with little more than a pad with utilities available. There are folks that have gone to these for years and years and are quite happy to be there. You will find parks with prices between the two!

If I were you I would go online and look for Texas RV Parks, attempt to scope out the area you want to be in, and then ask for peoples recomendations.
