Texas I-10 campgrounds

We are attending both the Down on the Bayou and Waltz Across Texas rallies this year. We leave Baton Rouge on Sunday and need to be in San Antonio on Wednesday.
Any suggestions of Texas camping spots on I-10 from Orange to the west side of Houston? We are looking at Stephen Austin St Pk which may be a nice place to stay and see the area for a few days. But we are game to stay in Beaumont area a night and then move a bit further for a couple of nights before heading in to San Antonio.
What about Stephen Austin?
And what would be on the top of the list for things to see in Houston area?

There is a Thousand Trails park in Columbus, TX that sits on the Colorado River just out of town. It's large with plenty of deer running about. Has good utility service, but poor TV/radio reception. Direct TV reception was good as was ATT cell service. A few good places in town to eat.

While being a TT park it is open to the general public.

As to my favorite thing to see in Houston, it is the city limit sign in my rear view mirror. But then I not a big city guy.

Beaumont, TX

My wife an I stayed on the west side of Beaumont, TX at:


Hidden Lake RV Resort
6860 South Major Drive
Beaumont, TX 77705
(409) 840-9691
www.hiddenlakervresort.com‎


It was a really nice park in a good location for someone traveling along I-10. We were on the way to Junction, TX to ride our bikes. It was the first trip with our trailer.

I wrote a ride report: Mom and Dad Ride the Texas Hill Country - ADVrider

Good luck in the rally. I know some guys that have ridden the Waltz.

The Thousand Trails in Columbus is nice, but SFA is much better. You shouldn't have any problem getting in this time of year.

As far as what to see, there is always NASA (south side of Houston). It is a neat place to go through. Beyond that, I haven't done much as I also hate traffic.

We have stayed at SFA and really like it. Good sites, nice and quiet. Close to Katy. I would say stay there.

NASA is too far from SFA. If you like to shop there is CW, Katy Mills Mall, Bass Pro Shop, but then there are movies, etc. there is of course the SFA site to go thru. Brookshire isn't too far, there is a place in Brookshire for the mentally and physically challenged and they have a gift shop and tea room. They make their own ceramics/pottery and sell it and Have heard their tea room is nice. Brookwoodcommunity.org. Check out their website.

Thank you for the responses. We have made note of it all. It sounds like Stephen Austin would be a nice place for a few days rest between rallies. This is one great thing about this forum....getting ideas from those who have 'been there-done that'.

We have thought about Spring Creek Park since it is at Tomball and my bff lives there. Since there is really no room at her place thought that would be a nice getaway for all of us since she is recovering from double ling transplant. She has to have dialysis and it is a pain to find someplace close to cg.
