2018 Escapade Camper Summit
Located on the very northern edge of the city of Houston, TX, Red Dot North combines both RV camping and mobile homes. The campground has around 20 overnight sites available for your rental RV, all on grass areas. Full hook-up is available, including water, electricity, and WiFi connection. All sites are back-in, so if you are new to camping with an RV, then some practice before arrival might be worthwhile.The on-site facilities include a laundry and self-service RV wash area, but there are no restrooms or showers. Your pets are welcome, but there are some restrictions, so check before booking.Downtown Houston is just a few miles south, but if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of city head north and you'll find yourself in the town of Conroe, on the edge of Lake Conroe. Being close to Houston, the Gulf Coast, and several large park areas, there is always plenty to do when you book an RV in Harris County.

At Lake Conroe, you'll find plenty to keep you occupied, from fishing to boating and hiking. The 21,000-acre lake runs north to south for approximately 26 miles and is up to six miles wide in places, so there is plenty to explore.Anglers will love the space and many creeks and coves, giving them peace and quiet to enjoy the solitude of fishing. Various species are well-stocked here, including several types of bass, bluegill, and catfish. Some of the largest catches in Texas have been recorded at Lake Conroe, so you may even get a trophy to take home after your motorhome camping vacation.There are plenty of opportunities to get out on the water, with two public boat launches and a whole host of marinas around the shoreline. If you didn't bring a boat with you, then no problem, as many of the marinas have canoes, paddle boats, and jet skis for rent. While on the water, the numerous coves are lovely to explore, and at the northern end of the lake are several small islands to discover.A little further north of the lake and you enter the Sam Houston National Forest, a massive 163,000-acre forest and recreation area. Running right through the forest is the 128-mile Lone Star Hiking Trail that links three different recreation areas. Some sections, such as the 9.2-mile Four Notch Loop, are ideal for day hikes, whereas other sections are point to point and need a little more planning.On the northeastern edge of Sam Houston National Forest is the massive Lake Livingston. Thirty-one miles long and nine miles wide at its widest point, the lake is a popular recreational area for fishing, swimming, water sports, and hiking. Several recreational areas have been established around the shoreline, with boat ramps, restrooms, and rental services so that you can make the most of the lake. Several commercial marinas are dotted along the long shoreline, renting boats and supplying bait and tackle for fishing.To the south of Houston is Gulf Coast, with numerous coastal wildlife areas to visit and beautiful views out over the water. Galveston and Galveston Island are two popular resort areas on the other side of Galveston Bay and worth a visit.
Red Dot North is in a built-up suburb of Houston, so you haven't far to go to find grocery stores to stock up your rental RV, and there's a good selection of restaurants and bars. It is also close to several main roads, making access very easy, both to downtown Houston and the surrounding areas.The north side of Houston has a large number of golf clubs and courses, with several on the shores of Lake Houston so that keen golfers will be spoilt for choice.An interesting although a rather macabre place to visit in Houston is the National Museum of Funeral History. From collections of historical hearses, dating back to the 19th century, an exhibit on Presidential funerals, and a look at the Day of the Dead to the history of embalming, it's certainly a different kind of museum. Add in the fantasy coffins from China and an exhibit on Japanese funerals, and you can see why it won an award in 2019 for being the best museum in Houston.Downtown Houston is so packed with places to visit, including the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, Houston Zoo, and the Houston Museum of Natural Science, that you could spend a week here alone.But of course, it's impossible to visit Houston and not think of the NASA space program. The Johnson Space Center is in the southeast area of the city, where you can see a vast array of space hardware and visit sites such as the NASA Mission Control Center. It's a must-do trip for anyone with even the slightest interest in space and space travel.
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.
