These are RV Parks and Resorts that we have stayed in across the country.
As you know, things change, management changes, etc. . . so verify any information, rates, and so on before you make a reservation.
These were the conditions at the time of our visit. . .
We stayed at the Lazy G RV Park in College Station located right on Hwy 6, south of College Station, for the month of November 2011. . .
Lazy G RV Park
16554 S. Hwy 6
College Station, TX
We had a fairly good sized pull though spot for $395 for the month. . .pads are gravel, and fairly level. . .all hookups are centrally located center. . .so easy to access.
The park is a member of TACO – Texas Association of Campground Owners. . .which will get you a 10% discount on daily rates. . .they accept cash, checks and credit cards (NOT American Express though)
I was unable to determine if they were members of any other discount programs. . .as best as I could tell. . .they are not.
The highway was very close. . .within 200 yards of our space. . .so if that will bother you, I suggest requesting a spot in the rear of the park.
It also seemed to us that the front spaces were reserved for overnite and weekend stays. . .since it was Texas A&M FootBall Season, we seemed to have the party groups coming in next to us on those weekends. . .you never heard so much door slamming. . .and kids squealing. . .thankfully all was quiet during the week.
This is the rear camping area. . .as you can see, there is no shade. . .however, I am sure it is much quieter back there, as you do not have the highway noise, or the traffic going in and out. One vehicle in particular with a very loud exhaust seemed to go in and out at least 10 times per day. . we did find it extremely annoying, especially late at night.
This seems to be a working man’s park, so it stayed pretty full the entire month we were there. They also provide RV and Boat Storage as you can see in the rear, behind the camping area.
The four restroom facilities, and shower houses were self contained and private, which is a plus. The one I looked into had been smoked in. . .even though there was a huge NO SMOKING sign. . .and the shower looked as though it could use a dose of bleach. . .but overall, very adequate for those times a shower house is needed.
This is the pet area. . .I did read in the rules that all pets were to be on leash at all times. I did not find that rule to be enforced. . .as I observed several animals being allowed to roam free. I guess the owners feel as long as they are outside, their pet should be okay. . .
Shopping is easily accessible. . .Lowe’s and HEB Grocery are at the next exit. . .Walmart is within five minutes or so. . .by the time you make it to Walmart, you are almost to the business district, where every store and restaurant imaginable is available.
The mall is huge, and easily accessible from Hwy 6 as is Sam’s Club, Academy, Home Depot. . .you name it. . .if you need it, you can find it in the area.
Texas A&M Campus Tours are available. . .be sure to check the website as scheduling in advance is recommended.
RV Parking and hookups are available on the campus. . .please contact the Texas A&M Transportation Dept. for more info. . .
No trip to College Station would be complete without a visit to the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, also located on the Texas A&M Campus.
We did not eat out too often this trip. . .Dave was teaching classes, and we had projects going on. . .but we did enjoy a meal at Crazy Cajun’s in the campus area. . .and lunch at Los Molcajetes in the neighboring town of Bryan. . .and we always make a pass by our favorite Tex Mex place. . .Chuy’s. Their jalapeno ranch green sauce is so amazing, I’ve had to learn to make it at home.
