Near the seemingly endless shores of the Texas Gulf Coast, the town of West Columbia holds a very special place in Texas history. It may be a relatively small town but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been a major influence. In 1836, after all of the fighting of the Texas Revolution, West Columbia became the site of the Congress of the Republic of Texas and even served as the capital of this new country for a short while. Today, Texas is a proud state of the United States and West Columbia no longer holds the state’s legislative branch, however, when you choose to book an RV rental in West Columbia, you are setting yourself up to be in the perfect location to explore the marshlands of the Gulf Coast and the forests of East Texas.
When you book an RV in West Columbia, you’ll be right in the middle of the Texas wonderland that is the Gulf Coast region. You will be within close range of some of the most exciting wildlife in the country as well as some of the most serene natural escapes.
If you’re looking for a quiet retreat, then a trip to the Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge near Lake Jackson, is the perfect place. When you book a motorhome rental in West Columbia, this short drive is must do. Once at Brazoria, you’ll be able to claim a bench or set out a picnic blanket and watch the various water and shorebirds dance about. You can also go fishing in these pristine waters and enjoy the peace and quiet of Brazoria.
For something a little more adventurous, head to Brazos Bend State Park. Upon entry, you’ll discover that yes, those are real alligators. As you go hiking along the Brazos River, you will likely see real, live alligators sunning themselves on the shore. Don’t worry, they’re used to people so they probably won’t bother you, and of course, don’t bother them. If you really want to get a sense of the natural world around you, then make plans to stay over on a Saturday night. You’ll be able to go into the George Observatory, run by the Houston Museum of Natural Science, and look up at the night sky through a high powered telescope.
If you’re looking for something a little woodier, or maybe something with fewer alligators, then head north with the West Columbia RV rental to the Sam Houston National Forest. This massive forest is one of just a few national forests in the state of Texas. With over 160,000 acres of woodlands, Sam Houston has miles upon miles of hiking trails that are just was “hike-able” in the summer as they are in the winter. You can even rent a canoe or kayak at the two lakes in the park and explore some of those famous Texas lakes.

At Sweeny RV Park, you’ll find full hookups and laundry facilities, and you can enjoy the quiet atmosphere as you settle into the Texas countryside.
If you want something a little more urban, consider the Angleton RV Park. Just outside of Angleton, Texas, this park has full hookups, laundry facilities, and WiFi. You will be near West Columbia and right in between Houston and the Gulf Coast beach of Surfside.

Don’t let the name confuse you; Varner-Hogg Plantation Site is not a pig farm. It is a historical site, once home to the former Governor of Texas, James S. Hogg. This large plantation, adorned with pecan trees and wildflowers, is a perfectly preserved example of plantation life and Georgian architecture. You can learn all about the history of this plantation, which was built by one of the Old 300 of Texas, one of the first 300 European settlers in Texas.
After your day of hiking and learning, you’re going to need to refuel. Sit down to a heaping plate of Texas barbecue: this slow-smoked brisket is packed with flavor from its dry-rub seasoning. You can wash it all down with some sweet iced tea.
