Testimonials and reviews for Lone Star Lakes RV Park:

We stayed here for four days to make last minute preparations prior to leaving for a cruise. It was a very convenient location for shopping and everything else that we needed to do. Also convenient to the Bush Intercontinental Airport, of which we flew out. The owners were extremely nice and let us park our motorhome in their parking area for only $5 per day while we were gone on the cruise. We stayed for two more days upon our return. It was raining heavily and there was a lot of standing water so they need better drainage. Also we could never get on the internet for some reason. They had good laundry facilities and it was nice and quiet here. We camped here in a Motorhome.


Our favorite park in the area. We’ve stayed here many times over the 12 years we’ve been fulltime RV’ing in our 40-footer and the park gets better each time we visit. It is family owned and operated: truly a green park, with useful, clean amenities and very friendly workers. We spent most of the summer here and the shade provided by the trees made the hot summer days a pleasure compared to all concrete, parking-lot type parks with no trees. All of the people here are very, very helpful! We camped here in a Motorhome.


Great park with friendly and helpful staff. Wireless internet worked great! Lots of long term tenants; very quiet at night. Recent upgrades to hookups and pads. I would stay here again long or short term. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.


Great little park with nice amenities. Lots of permanent guests, but everyone was friendly. Nice lake for the boys to fish. Very quiet at night. Level, pull-thru sites even for our large 5th wheel. We’d stay here again. Price reflects charge for 2 additional people. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Testimonials and reviews:

When you stay with us at Rivers Inn RV Park you will be close to many amazing points of attraction in the great city of Houston. Particularly, NASA, Reliant Stadium, Astrodome Convention Center, the Galleria and Texas Medical Center, all of which are only 15-20 minutes away from the park.


My wife and I have lived in Rivers Inn RV Park for approximately 6 months. The park is secluded, quite, and pleasant. We liked it because it is near to shopping centers and it is convenient to downtown Houston and the Texas Medical Center. We did not experience any problem with incovenience or crime. WE enjoyed the peacefulness and the friendly atmosphere of it. There were no bothersome or disorderly neighbors. We rented a 36 foot trailer that was already parked on site. The trailer was owned by the park owner. If I were to return to Houston for an extended stay, I would attempt to stay at Rivers Inn RV PARK again.


After having been in numerous RV parks, and living at this one for long of time my husband and I found Rivers Inn very peaceful, spacious and real countryside living. We experienced careful living, no violence, ease in accessing roads to Houston, Medical Center and Pearland/Manvel business growth offers accessibility to anything people need. The quietness was wonderful, calm and we felt very safe. I welcome you to enjoy the ‘country’ lifestyle just 11 miles from Houston.

This Park is Lots Of Fun
My family and I are from Houston and have a small place in Halletsville. We love to come out to the park for a great family day without the hustle and bustle of a big crowd. We love the fact that we can come in and grab a table and have a picnic. We enjoy taking the drive for a great time with friendly people who work and visit there.

This is a Great Family Park:
I can fully agree with the other reviewers. For the money, this is by far the best waterpark! It may not totally entertain thrill-seekers, but for a nice, relaxing, family-oriented experience, this is the place! You don’t have to go to the expense of buying food, you can bring your own in. This place has done whatever it takes to make your stay affordable, enjoyable and safe. The lifeguards are watchful and they rotate at regular intervals to keep from becoming zoned out! My only complaint is that the music is a bit overbearing and the selection wouldn’t be my first as a Christian mother. It’s kids’ music, but not all that uplifting spiritually. We make it a point to go at least once a summer though!
