When you are searching for an RV in Galveston County, close to the Gulf of Mexico, then Big State RV Park could be just the place for your next outdoor adventure.
Located on the edge of the city of La Marque, Big State RV Park is just a few miles from Galveston Causeway that takes you to the island city of Galveston. To the northwest is the large city of Houston, only 30 minutes or so away.
Big State RV Park has almost 70 full hook-up sites, with city water, sewerage, and electric hook-ups, and can cater for rigs up to 65 feet long. The large restrooms have hot showers, to save using the rental RV shower, plus there is a laundry with coin-operated washing machines and dryers.
On-site recreation facilities include a swimming pool and hot tub, a clubhouse with large TV screens, and a coffee bar. Anglers will be happy with the two well-stocked freshwater fishing lakes.
Bring your dog along to the Big State RV Park, as they have a dog run set up just for them.
Just north of Houston is the vast Sam Houston National Forest, covering over 160,000 acres. There are plenty of recreational opportunities here while camping at Big State RV Park, from fishing and hiking to boating, with plenty of space to park your rental RV.
There are two large lakes at the national forest, Lake Conroe, on the southern edge of the forest, and Lake Livingston to the northwest. They offer brilliant boating and water sports facilities, with boat rentals and marinas available on both lakes.
Fishing is plentiful, with black bass and white bass being particularly popular catches. Other species include different varieties of bass, catfish, and crappie. Whatever your favored fish, you can rent equipment, buy fresh bait, and rent a boat in numerous locations around both lakes.
Within the national forest is over 80 miles of multiple-use trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horse riding. Some of the trails are also open to off-highway vehicles.
Whether you are looking for an all-day hike or just a gentle stroll to spot some wildlife, the Sam Houston National Forest has it all. For serious hiking, the 96-mile Lone Star Hiking Trail runs through the forest, split into sections of varying length. There are an additional 32 miles of loops and connecting trails to increase the distance further.
If that's a little too ambitious, or you have children with you, then there are plenty of shorter hikes. Little Pond Trail, for example, is a loop of just under 1-mile long, which is perfect for the whole family. The Lake Livingston Main Trail is at the southern end of the lake and is an easy 1.5-mile loop with views over the lake. When you are camping with an RV, it's easy to explore all the different hiking trails on offer here.
La Marque is the nearest town, and within walking distance of Big State RV Park, so leave your RV rental hooked up on-site and go explore. In La Marque, you'll find a range of grocery stores, plus a good selection of restaurants and bars.
The Island of Galveston is home to several great attractions. For a full family day out, it would be hard to beat the Kemah Boardwalk. Along with plenty of seaside walks, you'll find rides, amusements, restaurants with fabulous sea views, shopping, and regular events and festivals. Hop on the Fantasea Yacht and take a leisurely cruise around Galveston Bay.
There's plenty for the kids in Galveston. A day at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark would undoubtedly be a hit, with high-speed, high thrill rides to the gentle river floating and anything in-between! While the kids wear themselves out, you can relax in the sun.
Right next door to the waterpark is Moody Gardens, a theme park that has an aquarium packed with animals from penguins to seals and sharks. The Rainforest Pyramid contains plants and animals that would normally live in the Amazon, including otters and monkeys, plus there are 3D and 4D theaters. Alternatively, one could take a leisurely cruise on the paddlewheel boat or maybe try your hand at zip lines and the high ropes. There is something for everyone here, and it's a full day out.
A motorhome camping vacation near Houston wouldn't be complete without a visit to the NASA Space Center. This iconic location is probably one of the most famous places on the planet and lets the visitor discover the mind-blowing world of space travel and exploration. The exhibits are amazing and include the shuttle carrier aircraft, with a replica of Independence on its back. Both are open to the public. Try to imagine flying in one of these machines. Learn about the International Space Center, watch presentations on living in space, and live updates from the Mission Briefing Center.
