The Great Outdoors

Just 15 minutes’ drive from the Bustertown RV Park is Lake Livingston State Park, which encompasses 635 acres along the shores of Lake Livingston. It’s a popular setting for hiking, swimming, and boating, with canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards available for rent. Lake Livingston is famed amongst anglers for its population of white bass, as well as being home to catfish, crappie, and perch. You can take advantage of the three boat ramps and two fish cleaning stations or cast a line from the fishing pier. If you’re traveling with kids, Lake Livingston State Park also runs free ranger programs throughout the year, where young visitors can learn to kayak, try geocaching, or attend a variety of craft workshops.On the other side of Lake Livingston lies the Sam Houston National Forest, which encompasses more than 160,000 acres. Among its network of hiking trails is the longest continuously marked footpath in Texas - the Lone Star Hiking Trail - which traverses 96 miles between Richards and Cleveland. If you want to get out on the water, you can rent canoes and paddleboats at Double Lake or try your luck fishing in the waters of Lake Conroe and Lake Livingston. Among the forest’s impressive bird sightings are a variety of owls and birds of prey, as well as the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker.Camping at Bustertown RV Park is also a good base for exploring the Big Thicket National Preserve, which lies a short drive to the southeast. It’s been designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve due to its exceptional diversity of animal and plant life, which includes carnivorous plants, longleaf pines, and 340 different types of grasses. Around 40 miles of hiking trails wind through the preserve while kayaking and canoeing routes include the 21-mile Village Creek Paddling Trail. Hunters can try their luck at wild game including white-tailed deer, squirrels, and feral hogs during designated areas and seasons, as well as rabbits and a variety of waterfowl.

There are also a handful of gas stations here if you need to fill up your RV rental and a wide choice of dining establishments that include fast-food restaurants, an Italian grill, and several Mexican eateries.Livington’s cultural and natural heritage is celebrated at the Polk County Memorial Museum, which details the region’s chronological evolution and the development of its settlements. Take note of the mammoth fossils and mastodon teeth on display or admire the Native American handicrafts before browsing the old photographs, documents, and period clothing dating from the Civil War years.Just over an hour’s drive south of the Bustertown RV Park is the vibrant city of Houston, which is packed with museums designed for young and old. See the Mission Control Room where NASA led the Gemini and Apollo missions at the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center and delve into the region’s natural history at the celebrated Houston Museum of Natural Science. You can get your artistic fix at the sprawling Museum of Fine Arts or just soak up the city views from the recreational lake of Hermann Park.If you’re traveling with kids, they can get hands-on at the Children’s Museum of Houston or see marine species from across the globe at the Downtown Aquarium. Also not to miss if you have the family in tow is the 55-acre Houston Zoo, which provides a home for more than 6,000 animals representing around 900 species. To the southeast of the downtown area is the Kemah Boardwalk, a lively theme park along the Texas Gulf Coast that’s packed with rides, gaming arcades, shops, and restaurants, not to mention a 400-slip marina.Whether you want to explore the long-distance hiking trails of East Texas or discover the family-friendly attractions of Houston, book an RV rental in Polk County and start planning your next visit.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
