The Great Outdoors

There are two large parks in the center of Houston. Buffalo Bayou Park is the smaller of the two and located in the downtown area. It is a long narrow park that follows the route of the Buffalo Bayou as it winds its way through the city. Along with beautifully landscaped gardens, there are picnic areas, hiking and bike trails, and public art displays. Boats are available to rent to get out on the water, and bikes can be rented to explore the trails. For a relaxing tour, take the pontoon boat that runs regular tours up and down the Bayou. With two visitor centers, a dog park for your furry friend to enjoy, and public art displays, you can understand why it's one of Houston's most popular parks for a relaxing family day out.A little way west along the Bayou brings you to the larger Memorial Park. The history of the park can be traced as far back as 1820, but it officially opened in 1924 when the Hogg family purchased some of the Camp Logan Army training camp. Since then, the family has gradually increased the size of the park to its current 1,466 acres, built a PGA standard golf course, and added a host of other recreational facilities. It is now one of the largest urban parks in the United States and is popular with joggers and hikers, and attracts millions of visitors each year. The PGA tour has been to the golf course here many times and is due to return in 2021.

Exploring the Area

Houston is a large city, and everything you need from day to day is within walking distance of the campground.While RV camping at South Main RV Park, it would be difficult to miss one of the biggest attractions in Houston. The Houston Space Center. Space and the universe have fascinated humanity for thousands of years, and the space center is the pinnacle of development and knowledge. Visit the center and marvel at the ingenuity of humans, and the sheer determination to make space travel a reality. You can learn through the educational programs, meet an astronaut for lunch, and even get hands-on at the interactive exhibits. Whether the universe fascinates you or not, the level of engineering and technological advances here are literally out of this world!For something a little more down to earth, try the Downtown Aquarium. Featuring a range of aquatic exhibits, including a 200,000-gallon shark tank which you pass through on a train, and numerous other rides, this is one for the whole family. Spread over 6 acres, with more than 300 species of aquatics, it's a great day out, plus there are a restaurant and bar on site.Should you happen to be RV camping in Houston in March, then make sure you check out the annual Buffalo Bayou Partnership Regatta. It's a 15-mile canoe and kayak race along the Buffalo Bayou, from San Felipe in the west to Allen's Landing in the east. The event has been taking place since 1981 and now attracts thousands of competitors. Many go for the after-race party at Allen's Landing, with music food and other entertainment.Drive-in any direction in your RV rental, and you'll find a championship golf course, so booking an RV in Harris County is a golfers delight.

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.
