A tour of our pad site


For a lot of reasons, we signed up for an annual RV pad site.  It is located near Lake Conroe, just north of Houston.  Conroe itself has a full complement of stores, restaurants, medical facilities and so on and the Woodlands is just down the road.  So we have pretty well everything we could need and want here.

The park itself (Thousand Trails, in Wllis, TX) has undergone some extensive renovations.  New sporting areas, new pool area, new docks, and new sites have really given this place a new look.  And the hot tub is only a few hundred yards from our site….  So we have a pleasant place to live that is not too far from Dallas (4 hour drive), has all facilities nearby, and close to Houston IAH Airport and cruise ship terminals.  And we can safely leave our RV home here when we go on trips, like our upcoming Europe cruise.

Our pad is located in the back, amongst a row of trees so we get some shade.  Important during these summer months!  So far, we have not done any site improvements, that will happen later.  We have a one year lease, and can extend it if we find we like it.  Here is a quick tour of some park highlights.
