Lake Conroe Thousand Trails

Lake Conroe Thousand Trails in Willis, Texas
We visited this park on December 8, 2013, and stayed for 12 day(s).

We’d stay here again in a heartbeat, but I can only honestly give this park mixed reviews because of the condition of its roads and RV parking areas. First the good: it’s near cities with great shopping, but it feels like it’s out in the boonies. We parked near a nice pond and backed up to a large grassy area, so we saw plenty of waterfowl and a few critters. Lake Conroe is on the west end of the park and sunset is beautiful over the lake. We enjoyed watching great blue herons and a variety of other waterfowl as they hunted their dinner every evening. If you enjoy fishing or boating, this would be a great place to hang out.

There’s a huge, beautiful pool and hot tub, but being as our visit was still during the off-season, neither were open. Typical Thousand Trails amenities included a nice laundry room, activity center, playground for the kiddos, and an adult lodge. There are plenty of rental cabins for folks who visit without an RV. It’s a gated property, and the ranger at the gate was friendly and helpful.

Roads to the park are in fine shape, but once you enter the park property, you’re going to have to work your way around big potholes. Some of the sites have nice, level, gravel parking pads, but it seemed that most sites were in dire need of maintenance. Some were terribly off level with huge potholes, thereby totally unacceptable for our big rig.
