Just over an hour’s drive south of the East Lucas RV Park is the McFaddin National Wildlife Refuge, which supports large numbers of wintering birds along the Central Flyway. It provides a resting point for large numbers of snow geese on their annual migration, not to mention one of the densest populations of American alligators in Texas. Keep your eyes peeled for North American river otters, raccoons, and nine-banded armadillos as you explore the wildlife refuge or head to the adjacent Sea Rim State Park, which is renowned for its birdwatching and equipped with several observation blinds.Farther west along the coast is the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, which was established in 1963 along the edge of East Bay. It encompasses around 34,000 acres of coastal marshes and prairies that provide habitat for a wide variety of animal and bird species. Aside from resident bobcats and American alligators, the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge is also a great spot for seeing purple gallinules, seaside sparrows, and American bitterns, as well as large numbers of migratory waterfowl that visit during the winter months.Directly north of the East Lucas RV Park is the Big Thicket National Preserve, which has been recognized by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve. This highly diverse area encompasses a complex mosaic of ecosystems that support more than 500 vertebrates, as well as more than 160 tree species and hundreds of types of grasses. Around 40 miles of hiking trails wind through the Big Thicket National Preserve, offering an up-close look at the area’s diverse plant communities, including bogs, carnivorous plants, and towering longleaf pines.

What type of RV should I choose?
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.
Do the RVs have bathrooms?
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.
