Jan 2018 - $13.00
Price based on monthly rate of $400 for the month not including electric. We stayed from late October 2017 till early Feb 2018. Nice, well maintained park. During heavy rains, sites did not flood. Very quite and feels like you're truly in the woods. Spacing of sites give privacy. Sites are large. Very few activities in park and no community room. There is an outdoor pavilion, but seldom used. Great base to go do other things. - C Young

Stayed in the off season- Early January. Park is pretty much vacant. The size of the pull thru lots are AMAZING. Possibly 60 feet? Wifi close to the office is decent. My site and the next one next to it had permanently installed Dish or Direct TV dishes. Pretty nice. Very friendly staff and grounds are clean. Water was pretty good, as well as pressure. No over-the-air tv channels and no cable. The manager, worked with me on price above the two day Passport stay. Really decent people. The area is kinda limited in entertainment. The closest grocery is in Cold Spring- about 8 miles. The Walmart (and civilization) is about a twenty five minute drive. The park grounds are well marked and seem that they would drain nicely in a heavy rain. Close to Lake Livingston dam. - BillyBobTX

Nice wooded park. We stayed here for the winter. The front part of the park was very nice. Back section was not well kept. Owners very nice very caring people. Bathrooms and laundry are dated. Pool needs upgraded. Older park. Does have a very nice clubhouse. - lafoe

We came here on a recommendation from another RVer that used to frequent Woodsy Hollow. It was not as nice as the recommendation or as the web site shows. The campground is mainly full time folks with lots of junk sitting around. The campground seems to have a few sites that they keep for recreational users. They have a nice area that a group had reserved and stayed together. A few sites have a view of the private lake. Roads were dusty and frequently traveled. Bathrooms were fair/poor in repair and cleanliness. They did have kayak and paddle boats for rent, rec room, a good little playground, and a pool. Staff was friendly and helpful. I'm sure it was a good campground at one time, now catering to full time residents. We do not plan to return. - HJH

Nice park and wonderful people - cheesey

This was an overnight stop for us on our way home from south Texas. We pulled in at 7:30 pm. The office was closed and there were no registration forms in the box. We picked a site that looked fairly level. It wasn't. All grass sites. The "paved" road was in very poor shape. The bathrooms & showers were very primitive and not very clean. We used electric only, and were up and on our way by 7:30 a.m. Someone dropped by & left a registration form on our steps while we were in the bathrooms. We never saw a living person while there. This is a good example of why people choose to sleep over at Wal Marts or truckstops. We thought $10 would have been a fair price for sleeping there. - mcleff

The owners are wonderful. I was here for just over 5 weeks. Bathroom, showers and laundry room are all very clean. The sites are nice and all have a picnic table, fire ring and they provide the first batch of fire wood. They have two dog runs. There is a nice walking trail around the park. Was not able to pick up any stations on my antenna but the WiFi in the park is excellent. I have already planned my next visit to the park. - Jen W

This is great campground to stay at while in the area of Livingston, TX, home of Escapees organization. The owners are just the nicest people and make one feel so welcome. The bathhouse/laundry are located in a small building and the cleanliness was outstanding. Recycling is available and they have outside games available for patrons to use. They have two fenced in dog parks and even have horse corrals available for those who travel with horses (and yes someone stopped for several days with their horses). The WiFi is outstanding and there are 4-5 repeaters in the small camping area. The camp office has a small amount of groceries, mostly sodas and candy. The sites are close together and not level. We have auto levelers and did not have any trouble leveling though our front end of our 5th wheel was very close to the ground. The sites are gravel/dirt and when it rained, it was really messy and difficult not to carry stuff inside the RV and this was Really our only complaint of this campground. It was not as much of a problem when it was dry. We paid the monthly rate with a military discount and paid separately for electricity. When we add electric to our site cost, it averaged $15 per night. This is a relatively new campground and they are still making additions to make the stay better. We loved this place and would return. - roadking

This is a lovely park in a country setting, in the process of building a visitor base. The park is new, in a nice location between the I-45 and I-59 corridors. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. We are very pleased with the service, which has laundry facilities a nice plus when traveling. Come visit the park to see if this meets your needs, a nice break from the city traffic. We came for the month of November and plan on staying a little longer. This may be a place to warm your heart and relax for a few days! The city of Coldspring & Livingston are near by for shopping, restaurants. About an hour's drive to Conroe. We like the location. - KathyGene

From the warm welcome we received at check-in we knew we would love Camp Jason. The manager and owners are so accommodating and take such great care of their guests and property, we ended up extending our stay to 6 weeks. Long, level concrete pads, easy to navigate with all the trees trimmed high, sparkling clean well priced laundry facilities and the nicest showers we've ever seen in a park. Super FAST WiFi too! There is a security gate and guests are given remotes for the gate. Very peaceful, small park but only a few minutes from Lake Livingston. This will be our go-to RV park whenever we return to the area. - BShirlz

Beautiful Park! the kids loved the pond and fishing! The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The showers and laundromat made my stay so comfortable. Like a home away from home. We will definitely be back. - jwisdom18

We had a great time... for August camping in Texas. We almost had the entire place to ourselves. Only 3 other sites were occupied. On RV door side (passenger) the next spot was 50 yards away through thick brush. On the other side (driver) the next spot was only 15 yards away and clearly visible should you look back there (we did not). From the camper's bumper, the lake was just 20 yards away. A great spot that we will try to get again next time.The kids enjoyed the swimming area which was clean and well maintained. - Warkog

This a nice small park. There are several pull-throughs which have full hookups and can handle big rigs. There are not any sites which you could really call lake view due to the heavy forest. The swimming area is really nice. Verizon service is a little spotty but usable. Like Cagle Rec Area, your America the Beautiful discount is screwy, not really half price like most USFS and COE parks. We will probably come here again. - TEXASBOY

Update review 11/2016 - This is one of our favorite places to camp in our RV. This is a very small camping area in the Sam Houston National Forest near Coldspring Texas. There are sites you can reserve and sites that are first-come-first serve.
There are 2 park hosts that live in the park and they are very accommodating if you need anything, but don't expect to see a constant presence by park staff.
The park is a beautiful forest like facility with very wooded and shady sites, a small lake with plenty of water in it (after a couple drought seasons) and abundant hiking and biking trails.
We only camp on the full service RV sites. (Not all sites are full service.) Some sites are reasonably level and some require substantial leveling efforts. Just make sure you have plenty of Lynx levelers or equivalent. The pedestals are conveniently located with 30/50 amp service, water and dump. The sites driveway is blacktop and most sites have a concrete pad with a large picnic table and a nearby fire pit.
Cell service and TV reception are weak, so don't plan to watch a lot of TV unless you have a satellite system. - Tcamper

Stayed in Yaupon Loop. Price reflects no TX state pass so $21 plus $5/night admit fee. Yaupon recently renovated (like Red Oak and Piney Shores before) so site pads are concrete and road is in good shape. All three of these loops are full hookup and can accommodate larger rigs. I found it odd, though, that the picnic table/fire ring areas are not upgraded at all--they are in the dirt (or mud, if weather is wet). Hopefully they have plans to at least put gravel under them at some point. FYI, future renovations planned for Pin Oak and Hercules Club Loops, both of which are E/W only (and cheaper). In the meantime, though, those roads and site pads are old asphalt, broken and pitted in spots, with some abrupt drop-offs in the road-side and site shoulder areas. Many of those sites could be quite challenging for larger rigs to access. Texas recently went to all site-specific reservations, which may complicate picking a good site, sight unseen, especially in those two E/W loops... bigger rigs beware! Verizon signal good. Over-the-air TV limited, but could usually pick up a couple of channels. - aowcarol

Check in was smooth and being able to reserve specific sites over the web ensured no surprises at arrival. We had no problem backing our 36 foot 5er into our site. The electric connection was towards the front of site and our electric is at the rear of our 5er which resulted in needing to use a 10 foot power cord extension in order to back all the way into the site and connect power. There was a great mix of tents, camping trailers, and 5ers throughout the park. The park's pool was closed but there was a designated swim area with easy access into and out of the lake. We will return to this park again. - GVRZ381

We stayed 7 nights on the Piney Shore Loop. We were next to the water, and never had any problem with mosquitoes or flies. St. Augustine grass has been planted, so picking burrs out of our dogs was not an issue. We were thrilled with our site, and hope to return soon. With the site reservation system, sure does help in choosing the site you want. - TxBg

I agree with the other campers. Quiet, large site, no laundry or anything. Grassy site that the dog liked. Not well marked, look for the red dirt driveway after the two churches. We liked the place and will stay again - diceshooter60

Basic place. Pretty nice and quiet. This place is combined with a mobile home park, but it's quiet and spread out over 7 acres. Lots of grass, and trees, and seclusion. We camped here our motor home while passing thru. We may stop here again in the future. - RVFanTX

This campground is now closed. Someone told us that it has been turned over to the city of Flower Mound and they may reopen it next year (2010). - janchuckscw

We are finishing up a 7 week stay here. Had a great stay aside from the rainy weather but can't blame the campground for that. This campground is the HQ of the Escapees but non-members need not be concerned. Everyone is very much welcomed. It does cater towards older campers. A large portion of the park includes deeded sites where people permanently resides. Some have built houses while others park the RVs there while here. Absolutely everyone we met was friendly and helpful.
Sites for rental are in 3 different area. We were in an older section near the HQ and Club House. Sites were open enough to allow easy maneuvering and fairly level (our section had a little slope - actually needed here for drainage when it rains) but our leveling system compensated perfectly. Roads were wide and easy to drive around with my rig.
I would offer some concern that the section by the campground office (site 110 and higher) may get road noise. Route 146 is busy. - BluesmanG

Little bit off of Highway 59. Staff very friendly. This is the headquarters for the Escapees RV Club. Site was easy pull through. You had to pay for wifi and cable. We stayed only one night so that wasn't a problem. Would stay again. - Bosun

All hookups worked well. The WiFi sucked even tho I paid for it. It just never worked. The satellite got good reception. The campground is large and mature but well kept. There are many amenities to enjoy. There were no doggie bags at the run even tho they advertised them as available. - Melodycthomas

Stopped for one night while traveling east from Waco. This park is only 2 years old and is still under development. The roads and parking spaces are concrete. Sites are level and all seem to be pull thru and they are fairly close together. Utilities are well placed. Do not rely on GPS to get you there based on the street address. You must exit RT 105 onto a frontage road to get to the RV park entrance. GPS will put you onto Texas 59 and you will see the RV park as you pass by. The only other negative is the driveway from the frontage road into the RV park is full of potholes, some very large. - Allure470

Pit bulls are allowed. Washers and dryers are gritty as people wash their shoes in them(I saw this) Lots of loud pickups that woke me more than once. People are allowed to leave item outside their RV...items like laundry soap, children's toys, shoes, towels. Way too expensive! $435/mo + my electric was $121. for one month. - Sharonc
