So far, we have only stayed at 2 TT Parks in Texas. Lake Conroe and Medina Lakes, during our travel west in the last 3 years. but this year we are staying in Texas and plan on using more TT Parks, Colorado River and 3 more up in the north section.
Lake Conroe is a nice park. If you go there and have a 50-amp rig, they will tell you, "You need to take a 50-amp site". They do charge an upgrade fee of $3.00/night for 50-amp. last year the interior roads needed to have repairs done.
Medina Lakes has upgraded the electrical side of the campground, since our first trip in 2019. Now there are more 50-amp sites available. During our first visit there was around 75 sites that you could not use, now, last year trip January 2022, it seems most of these sites were back on-line and available. They also charge an upgrade fee of $3.00/night for 50-amp.
If you go, use care of some tree limbs are low.
Colorado River has added a new section with 30/50-amp service in the last 3-years. At first, TT was trying to charge $10.00/night to use that section. now they have reduced it to be in-line with the Lake Conroe & Medina Lakes fees.

Some of the parks you list are Thousand Trails parks, some are Encore parks.

A “Thousand Trails” membership gives you access to the Thousand Trails parks, but you’d have to add a “Trails Collection” upgrade to the Thousand Trails membership to gain access to the Encore parks.

The corresponding rules of access for Thousand Trails parks and Encore parks then are quite different. You’ll need to study those two sets of rules to determine if it fits how you do things.

Hope this helps, although you may already know the details.
