You would be amazed at what you can find right in your own backyard. Not the backyard of your house, per say, but right in your own community. Brazoria Lakes RV Resort is literally right down the street from where we live. When I say “down the street”, I mean within 2 miles. I pass it everyday on my way to work and never realized what was behind those gates. I guess after awhile things just blend in with the background.
Kellie and I have been trying all year to get the RV out for a weekend and things just haven’t worked out for us. We have tried booking places like Brazos Bend State Park, but they are booked solid for several months. RV reservations are becoming harder and harder to make.
Instead of giving up on camping this year, I looked at the Brazoria Lakes RV Resort website just to see what I could find. I had no problem at all making last minute reservations. They are a part of the Quality RV Resorts franchise which has luxury resorts all over south Texas.
Making reservations was extremely easy. You can’t reserve a specific site but you can choose from several different sizes and area of the resort you want to stay. For example, we booked a site that was 20′ X 40′ with Lake View. They also offer your choice of Pull-Thru or Back-In sites. You simply enter the dates you want to stay, enter your rig information, and they give you a list of sites that will accommodate your RV. Choose the site that works for you, and click “Reserve”. Of course you do have to pay a deposit and an additional $5 fee for reserving online.
Arriving At Brazoria Lakes RV Resort
Getting to the resort and getting checked in was very easy. The hosts at the main office had all of our paperwork ready to go when we walked in. They gave us a copy of the resort rules, a resort map, and a list of amenities that the resort offers. They were very nice and made sure we made it to our site with no problems.
We got backed in and set-up with no issues. One of the first things we noticed was the amount of empty sites throughout the resort. The majority of campers there were full-timers. The resort was very quiet, which surprised us. We thought there would be folks outside enjoying the pool, the hot tub, or the outdoor kitchens. Which brings me to the amenities they offer…
The very first thing we noticed as we drove in was the pool and hot tub. Kellie couldn’t wait to get set-up and get down there for a swim. We made it down to the hot tub later that afternoon. I felt like a lobster being boiled alive when I got in. I never realized they were that hot.
The outdoor kitchens and firepits were nice, but the firepit by our site wasn’t working. The igniter was out and the part was on order. This would be a great place to gather with friends and family for an evening of cooking on the grill and sitting around a fire. There are two kitchens, located at each end of the lake.
Some of the other amenities they offer are an exercise room, a coffee and popcorn bar, and a recreation room equipped with a pool table. We didn’t make it down to play a game of pool. That will be a must on our next visit.
Brazoria Lakes RV Resort also offers golf cart rentals. The cost is $15 per day and they make sure you have a charger to take with you back to your site. We rented one and had a blast cruising the resort, checking out all of the different rigs that were there. We were next to a huge 5th wheel and from the far side of the lake, our rig looked like a slide-out in comparison.
There are no fire rings at the sites. The only firepits are located at each end of the lake. You can, however, have your own propane fire pit at your site, if you have one. We noticed there were a few campers that had theirs set up.
Other amenities include:
- On-Site Laundry
- Mosquito Free Zones (pool, hot tub areas)
- Free Computer Room W/ Internet
- On-Site Propane Refills
- Dog Wash
- Dedicated Dog Walking Areas
- Free Air Station
- Free Wi-Fi
- Full Hookups W/ Cable TV Included
- Stocked Fishing Lake (catch and release)
One of the downfalls of any camping trip is mosquitos. They were terrible during our stay. But, this resort is along the gulf coast and it’s just one of things that go along with the territory. The resort does fog frequently to try to control them. We even saw the mosquito plane go overhead while we were there. It looks just like a crop duster that fogs for mosquitos.
Last time we were at our local home improvement store, we picked up The Bug Bite Thingy to give it a try to see if it works. I can tell you from experience, it does in fact work. The itch relief isn’t instant, but it does calm it down after a few minutes. The Bug Bite Thingy is just a simple suction cup that you place over a bug bite and essentially suck the itch venom out.
Conclusion On Brazoria Lakes RV Resort
Overall we really enjoyed our stay. It was nice to be that close to home and yet still be able to get the RV out for a few days. The resort is located just off of HWY 36, on the south side of Brazoria, TX. And, if you are wanting to take a trip to the beach and can’t find a site, Brazoria Lakes RV Resort is a short 20-30 minute drive to the nearest beach. Check out our post on Surfside Beach to find the best restaurants and RV parks on the beach. Or if you just want to get away and enjoy some peace and quiet, give them a try.
