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.

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.
