Rayford Crossing RV Resort Overview:
Review & Rating of Rayford Crossing RV Resort in Spring Texas
Rayford Crossing RV Resort is a modern and "luxury RV resort" and is the model for what RV parks should strive to be when they grow up! This new (2006) RV Park is very clean and meticulously maintained, sponsors monthly entertainment events, has some very good amenities, is convenient to lots of fun things to see and do, and has a very friendly and helpful staff dedicated to making sure your stay is enjoyable and memorable. What more can you ask for!
Rayford Crossing is about two miles east of The Woodlands and 25 minutes north of Houston. The terrain is flat, lined by trees on the perimeter of the park, and the roads are paved and wide. Tents, pop-ups, and conversion vans are not allowed.
Rayford Crossing is one of the few Texas RV Parks with a perfect 5/5 Woodalls rating and a perfect 10/10/10 Trailer Life rating! That is quite an accomplishment and a testimony to what a fantastic RV resort Rayford Crossing is.
Amenities and Fun Things To Do:
Rayford Crossing has 115 sites with full hookups - 20/30/50 AMP, water, and sewer. Eighty five of the sites are wide, extra long pull throughs and the rest of the sites are back-ins. All of the sites are paved, level, and each have some grass and a picnic table. The 4 premium sites have a larger grassy area, a new gas BBQ grill, and a table with an awning and 4 chairs. There are also 7 deluxe sites that have a larger grassy area plus patio furniture and a gas grill. Each of the sites have a lighted electrical outlet which makes it very easy to hook up in the dark. All of the sites are clean and well maintained. As is typically with most RV parks, the sites are side-by-side.
If you or some your friends don't have an RV, Rayford offers 3 cabins (park models) which are one bedroom, one bathroom, fully equipped, and sleep 4. The cabins are all new and in perfect condition and exceptionally clean.
Some of the other amenities include:
- large heated pool and spa
- horseshoes, washer-boards, shuffleboard, and bean bag toss
- fitness room with modern equipment
- laundry room
- library with free DSL
- BBQ pavilion
- pet park
- fishing pond
- onsite propane
- game room with pool and arcade games
There are also two rally rooms with full kitchens. In the Rayford Crossing office, in addition to a very friendly and helpful staff, you'll find a small store with staples, DVDs for rent, souvenirs, and more. You won't find any cleaner or fancier (elegant granite and stone!) restrooms and showers than what you'll find at Rayford Crossing.
Rayford Crossing's objective is to make your visit enjoyable and pleasant as well as entertaining. As such each month they have a number of events for guests which range from live music to scrapbooking to chili cook-offs. Visit Rayford Crossing's website to see a virtual tour and learn more about this outstanding RV park.
A Typical Texas Outsider Day:
When we stay here we love to explore the Woodlands which is about 5 minutes away and has an upscale mix of restaurants and shops. We like to bike the paved flat and easy bike trail that meanders around the town center and along the canal - which in a few years may start to rival San Antonio's Riverwalk. A water taxi runs the length of the canal and makes stops at some of the river front restaurants and shops.
The Woodlands also has some fabulous public, resort, and private golf courses. Check this golf map to learn more about the nearby courses.
We also like to walk the trails that are a part of Rayford Crossing.
Cool Nearby Activities:
Lake Conroe is pretty close if you want to go fishing, skiing, or cruising. Cruise by Bentwater and marvel at the beautiful lake houses and watch the golfers loose their golf balls in the lake.
Old Town Spring is a few minutes away and it is a quaint turn of the century town composed of shops, restaurants, museums, and art galleries. You will find a variety of antiques, collectibles, clothing and accessories for the home and gifts for all occasions. Houston is about 20 miles away and has great walk/jog/bike trails, fabulous restaurants, and lots to see and do. Here is a link to find some fun things to see and do in Houston.
The kids will enjoy nearby Splashtown and Main Event. If you are not into cooking at your campsite, you have plenty of close by choices for fast food or fine gourmet dining.
For you athletes, you can go kayaking at the Woodland's lake, roller skating or jogging on the trails around Woodland's Town Center, or enjoy any of the many bike trails within the Woodlands. There is also a riding stable around the corner from Rayford Crossing if you like to ride.
Rayford Crossing's website has a great list of local attractions with links to websites.

Additional Pictures of Rayford Crossing 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
