Lakeview RV Resort Review & Rating
Lakeview RV Resort Overview:
Review of Lakeview RV Resort - Houston
Lakeview RV Resort opened in 2005 and is ranked as one of Texas Outside's favorite parks and has a 5W rating from Woodalls - only 3% of the nations RV parks receive that excellent rating. The park sits on 28 acres with 251 sites, 17 travel trailers, and 15 park models. Not many other parks in Texas have that few sites on that many acres - meaning you don't feel like you're jam packed next to your RV neighbor.
The park is built around a small fishing lake and some of the premium sites front the lake. All of the roads are wide, paved, and it's easy to navigate big rigs to and from the sites. Lakeview RV Resort prides itself on it's cleanliness and attention to detail - the park and cabins are immaculate. The staff is friendly and helpful. Pets are welcome.
Access to the park is gated and security throughout the park is top notch. You'll find some nice amenities within the park and Lakeview RV Resort has easy access to downtown Houston (5 miles) and other Houston attractions.
Amenities and Fun Things To Do:
Lakeview RV Resort has 251 sites that are a combination of back-in and pull throughs, all of which have level concrete pads, picnic tables, concrete patio pad, and full hookups (20, 30, and 50 AMP service). Better yet, the sites are spacious at 13 to 20 feet wide and 25' to 66' long and each has at least 6' feet of gravel on one side and 6' of grass on the other side.
If you don't want to camp or have non campers as part of your party, Lakeview RV Park has 15 park models and 17 travel trailers available for rent. The cabins are 400 square feet and have one or two bedrooms with either one to one and a half bathrooms. The cabins will sleep 2 to 6 people. Each cabin has a sleeper sofa, dining table and chairs, fully equipped kitchen (pots and pans, silverware, dishes, toaster, dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave, and more), large refrigerator, and a full bathroom. Some have picnic tables and others have screened in porches with picnic table and grills. We stayed in the two bedroom full bath plus a half bath Cabin 204 and were very impressed - it looked brand new, the bed was great (very soft and comfy), the cabin was very clean, it had everything you need for cooking, and there was a screened in porch with a picnic table and full size gas grill. At 400 square feet the cabins aren't huge, but they are comfortable, clean, and functional.
In addition to the campsites and cabins, Lakeview RV Park also has 17 RV travel trailers ranging from 30' to 42'. Some of the travel trailers come furnished for weekenders and others are not furnished for longer term tenants. Both the cabins and trailers include daily maid service.
In addition to great sites and cabins, Lakeview has some other fantastic amenities including:
- a small lake and fountain stocked with some huge bass, catfish, brim, and blue gill for catch and release
- swings and gazebos with gas grills along the pond
- a paving biking or walking trail around the lake
- a very nice recreation center with a hot tub, flat screen, comfortable relaxing furniture, free coffee and popcorn
- clean restroom and individual showers
- a state of the art laundry room with heavy duty washers and dryers - very impressive
- lending library
- office with a limited amount of staples, ice, and RV supplies
- exercise equipment and pool table in the rec hall
- computer room with Internet access and printers
- free cable TV and phone hookup plus wireless internet
- propane and a dump station
- three dog runs
- mobile RV repair is available
Adjacent to the recreation center and overlooking the lake is a beautiful pool and hot tub area. With the landscaping and palm trees, you may think you're on some remote Caribbean island. Lakeview RV Park also sponsors some special events like pot luck dinners.
A Typical Texas Outsider Day:
We stayed at Lakeview RV Park because it was so convenient to some of the things that we wanted to see and do in Houston. We visited the Zoo, Museum of Natural Science, and rode bikes on some of the 95 miles of hiking and biking trails in Memorial Park. We have also played golf at several of the nearby Houston courses. And after a full day of golf and biking, the hot tub at Lakeview was the perfect place to end a fun day and relax the muscles. Soaking in the hot tub gets us ready to head out for a good meal and some music or other fun nighlife.
Cool Nearby Activities:
In addition to the nice amenities within the park, you have very easy access to downtown Houston and all that Houston has to offer. Some of the fun things to do with 20 minutes of the park include: Reliant Stadium and Minute Maid Park for sporting and special events; several museums (Museum of Fine Arts, Holocaust Museum, Museum of Natural Science, and more); a great zoo; horse, greyhound, and motor sport racing; several parks, including Herman Park, for biking, jogging, or picnicking; and lots more.

Additional Pictures of Lakeview RV Resort
Texas Outside uses a tough rating scale and it’s difficult for a campground to get a “10”. Each park is rated on:
- Scenic Beauty: a campground that is flat with no trees or character gets a “1” and hills, lots of trees, beautiful lake site, and lush ground cover gets a “10”
- Park Condition: the cleaner, well kept, and maintained campgrounds receive high scores
- Amenities: we are looking for lots of amenities like restrooms, dump stations, playgrounds, boat ramps, shelters, concession stand, rental toys, and more.
- Campsites: low scores are given for sites that are right next to each other (good for getting to know your neighbors, but not what we’re looking for when we’re camping); have no lantern holder, no water or electricity, no fire pit, no grill, or no picnic table (or it’s rotten wood); have no trees and no view; the ground cover is crushed rock (my bare feet hate that stuff!); and they require a lot of work to get your rig level.
- Things To Do: Bonus points are given for campgrounds that offer lots of fun things to do at the park or very nearby – this includes: biking, hiking, climbing, boating, entertainment, golf, swimming, fishing, volleyball, horseshoes, and more
