Driving to coushatte

OK, the time is near for those of you who have never been to Coushatte, here are a few tips on getting there. DO NOT put the address in your GPS, the addresses have changed and GPS will take you past the Campground. From Houston or San Antonio use I-10 to Sealy exit Hwy 36 from San Antonio turn left on 36 from Houston right on 36 follow 36 out of town to TX 331 turn right on 331 about 7 miles to Coushatte Rd, there is a small RV sign prior to the turn, turn left to Nelius RD about 2 miles, there will be a large tower at your turn, also signs in place turn left on Nelius and follow directly into the campground. Are area is across from the Large Red Rally Halls, pick you own site, rows 1 and 2 are mostly 30 & 50 amp sites. See you all there. Drive safe.

Has anyone every taken 529 to Belleville and then to the campground.

If so, how are the roads?

Yes, I took that last year. The road to get there on 529 is fine. My problem is that I trusted my GPS and it took me to a field. I got lost trying to find the campground from wherever I was at that time.

I may take 529 again since going all the way to I-10 would be out of the way for me. I have been there using Hwy. 290 also but don't remember the directions that way.

Sue,

If you're going out from Houston, you don't have to go all the way into Bellville.

Take FM529 west to FM362. Turn right (north) on FM362 for a few miles and then turn left (west) to stay on FM529 - just follow the FM529 signs through this "jog".

Continue to go west on FM529 past the FM359 intersection, over the Brazos river and into Burleigh. At Burleigh, turn left (south) on FM331 for a couple of miles. Coshatte Road will intersect FM331 from the right in the middle of an S-curve. Turn right on Coshatte Road for a mile or so, then left on Nelius Road and follow Nelius Road straight into the campground. Where Nelius Road turns right 90 degrees, continue straight ahead into the campground.

Although it's a paved road, Nelius Road was pretty rough the last time we went, but there's no way around it. The other roads are fine.

Rusty

Thanks, Rusty! Those are the exact directions I needed. I always have a problem getting there. But then I OFTEN have problems getting places - just ask Madame Boomer.

I Googled Coushatte RV Ranch Texas in their map section and it showed the ranch and a very clear map for getting there from Waller on 362 and 529 (which is the direction I will be coming from).
I tried to insert a direct link to it, but it won't take it.

For those of you from Houston or Katy area that wish to take the alternate FM 529 route, after you turn onto 331 south just before you enter the turn you will notice a gravel road straight ahead, to keep from having to make that wild turn to your right half way thru the curve, take that gravel road, it's about 200 yards, and runs right into Coushatte RD, turn right and head to the campground turn on Nelius Rd.

We pulled in about 5:30 last evening and there are plenty of campsites close to the Rally Hall. Even with a light rain , the sites are fairly dry and very little mud anywhere.
