Thousand trails in Texas, how are the conditions of the parks?

We are scheduled to be in Lake Texoma on Nov.1 for two weeks, then Lake Conroe for 3 weeks. After that we are going to Medina Lake for 3 weeks. Are there any problems with any of those Thousand Trails CG's?
Thank you for your responses.

If you don't get responses here and are on Facebook, there's a good group called something like "Thousand Trails (Outdoor World) -- The Good AND The Bad". Incredibly active (~ 5,000 members), though sometimes a little angry. I'm sure you'll find people there that can tell you about the parks in question.

Medina is out in the boonies, roads not great, campground is infested with deer and they are very friendly. Come right up to your campsite. Really not too bad a campground, but we were there in 2006, so they may have improved the roads or they might be worse.

We liked Medina a lot. Yes, the deer are pretty tame, and there are a lot, though I don't think I would use "infested". It is a very pretty campground. It does take a bit to get to it though. It is in the boonies. I don't remember the condition of the roads very well, but if you say they were rough, they probably still are.

Conroe was our least favorite. We were there in 2012. The campground was, and I will use the word now, infested with fire ants. The roads are pretty rough. It's not quite as difficult to get to as Medina was, but still a bit of a journey. On the upside, the recreation facilities were pretty nice. We didn't use them, but the did seem kept up well. But the campsites and roads and fire ants would keep us from going back there. I don't know if any improvements were made since we were there, but I doubt it.

We have not been to Texoma, but it has been on our list.

Hope this helps.

We counted over 100 around our site from around 4pm until dark and had to stop on the way out while at least 20-25 crossed the road. I've never seen so many deer. They are a very pretty animal. I agree the park itself is pretty.

If you're not set on campgrounds, Huntsville State Park is one of our favorites in the area. Also, if you get bored, the Texas Renaissance Festival is not too far away during that time.

Hmm. We were there in 2005 and it sure didn't seem that bad. But I sure won't argue it.

Lake Conroe Thousand Trails

We spent 4 nights at the Lake Conroe TT over the Labor Day weekend and had a great time with our family. The staff is friendly and the amenities are really nice. I would stay away from the pull through sites. They are really tight because of the way they are designed. The utilities are in the center and two trailers are side by side. All the other sites are on gravel pads. They aren't very level, but you should be able to level your rig. Most of the better sights are taken by those that have purchased their location. But there are some decent sights available if you get there early (you can choose your site). The sites are spacious with plenty of room between each camp site. We certainly will go back because of the amenities and activities.

Oh, if you have a golf cart, take it. It seemed like everyone there had one but us.

Here is the thread about the Texoma park from my experience. I do NOT recommend them to anyone and would not stay there again.
