Located on the banks of Lake Livingston, just north of Houston, Wolf Creek Park is an RV camping area that is perfect for families.
Around half of the 100 individual RV campsites provide full hook-up with water, electricity, and sewerage, while the remainder offers water and electricity only. The campsites are arranged around four separate areas, with two large restrooms, including shower facilities, conveniently located between them.
The RV campground doesn't have a swimming pool, but there is a designated swimming area close to the children's playground at the southern end of the campground. The campground also has a marina and small store for your essential daily shopping, a picnic area on the waterfront with a playground, and a miniature golf course. Pets are allowed in the park, but dogs must be kept on a leash at all times. The park is closed to daytime visitors during the weekends and on public holidays, maintaining a peaceful atmosphere and ensuring the lake is never too busy.
The nearest town of any size is Coldspring, TX, a couple of miles to the south on the edge of the Sam Houston National Forest. Just beyond Houston around 50 miles to the south is the Gulf Coast, with plenty of attractions and things to do when you book an RV in San Jacinto County.
If water sports are your thing, then the location of this RV camping area will suit you perfectly. The marina is right on your doorstep and can rent kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, and a paddleboat to get you on the water and exploring.
The store has bait and tackle supplies for fishing, plus they can rent you equipment if you didn't bring your own. A wide range of fish species can be found in the lake, including various types of bass, catfish, crappie, and sunfish. No license is required when fishing from the bank or pier within a state park.
On the southeastern shore of the lake is Lake Livingston State Park. This small park has a range of outdoor activities, from fishing on Lake Livingstone to swimming, hiking, and boating. Hiking is a great way to get away from the rental RV for a while and enjoy some good free exercise. At the same time, you can do some birdwatching, try your hand at geocaching, or simply enjoy the views.
The Bakba Trail is a 2-mile loop that takes you along quiet woodland paths. Be sure to listen out for the many different birds along the way, particularly the woodpeckers. Combine the Bakba Trail with the Trinity Trace Trail, a 1.8-mile out and back route that mostly follows the edge of the lake, and within a few hours, you'll visit a large part of the state park.
If you fancy taking to the water, canoe and kayak rentals are available to rent from the park store, plus other boats can be rented from local companies.
To the west of Lake Livingston is the massive Sam Houston National Forest, one of four in Texas and covering a total of 163,000 acres. The forest is a very popular area for hiking, with the 128-mile Lone Star Hiking Trail connecting the various areas of the park. Also, there are other 85-miles of multi-use trails, suitable for hiking, biking, horseback riding, and off-highway vehicles (OHV's).
On the western edge of the forest is Lake Conroe, perfect for fishing, swimming, and water sports. The southern end of Lake Conroe is wide-open water, great for sailboats.
While Coldspring is nearby to find your daily shopping needs, just a few miles south is the larger city of Cleveland, with a much wider choice of restaurant and grocery stores.
Don't rush to leave Coldspring, though, as the old town is worth exploring. Across the city are over 35 historical markers, giving an indication of the town's importance and use in the past. In the Courthouse Square is the 1887 Old Jail Museum, plus the Historic Heritage Center. The restored jail is now home to the San Jacinto County Museum, tracing the history of the early settlers to the area, but the Victorian building is itself worth a visit.
While RV camping at Wolf Creek Park and enjoying the nature that surrounds you, don't forget that the bustling town of Houston is only a short drive south. One of the biggest attractions here is Space Center Houston that brings the wonders of space travel to life. A dazzling array of exhibits, interactive displays, and guided tours take you on a journey through time and space that everyone will enjoy, and the kids will never forget.
