Review of Advanced RV Resort in Houston
Advanced RV Resort is a fantastic RV park located just 12 miles south of downtown Houston and is conveniently located to an east west as well as north south freeway giving you easy access to lots to see and do, excellent medical facilities, shopping, golf, and more. The Park is set away from the freeways and as such it is quiet and peaceful. Advanced RV Resort was built in 2007 and still has that new and pristine look and feel.
The park has secure 24 hour gated access, good amenities, and an excellent mix of full hookup pull throughs and back-in sites that are shaded or open. All of the roads are paved and the sites are level, spacious, and concrete with picnic tables and a parking pad. The roads are wide enough for big rigs to maneuver into the sites.
Advanced RV Resort is home to a large number of monthlies and full timers, all of whom we met seemed friendly and very active. The Park has age and condition restrictions, which means that the RVs are newer and in good condition.
The Park is clean and very well maintained, landscaped with trees and colorful plants, and the staff is friendly and outgoing. Several activities are planned each month, like breakfasts, crafts and tea, block parties, ladies night out, bunko, game night, and more.
Advanced RV Resort has 155 sites that are a combination of back-in and pull thoughs and they are adding 48 more sites in 2012. All of the sites are paved and have full hook-ups with new lighted pedestals that include water, 20/30/50 AMP, cable, and phone hookup. In most sites the sewer and hook-up pedestals are conveniently located making for an easy hook-up.
The pull through sites are wide (18 to 20 feet) and 65 to 75 feet long with a car parking pad, picnic table and pad, and lush grassy area on both sides. The back-in sites back up to the perimeter of a city Park or to a small pond.

Advanced RV Park is a fantastic place to stay if you want to be close to Houston and the Reliant Sports Complex or anywhere in the Houston metroplex. We stayed here after spending a couple days in Galveston and picked Advanced RV Resort because it was close to Wildcat Golf Course, which is a fantastic course and a must play if you're in the area. Read our review of Wildcat Golf Course.
The Park was also close to one of our favorite restaurants, Pappadeaux, which we enjoyed one evening. We can also recommend the Houston Zoo, several other golf courses, or a trip to Kemah or Galveston for the day if you're staying at Advanced RV Resort.
