RV Haven Park, College Station, TX, A Review…

RV Park Haven and Lockhart SP 018

One of our missions while visiting our home town of College Station was to check out new RV parks.  Our beloved park had become overrun with apartment buildings in every direction so much so that our view of Kyle Field had become completely obliterated.  Additionally the road noise had increased and our nature walk we so enjoyed had been removed for yet another apartment complex.  The location is still perfect and the large concrete pad with a patio made us pretty happy along with the park’s invitation to wash our vehicles as often as we wanted.

There are several parks in Bryan and College Station but none with the location we prefer.  We were so happy to see a new RV park less than a mile away from our current park. We hoped during our stay the park would open but as the days and weeks passed we didn’t see a sign that it had opened.  When we only had a couple of days left  John emailed the manager to inquire about the park offering to help with some internet presence for them as we really had a hard time locating information about them.

The manager, Carlos Boillat, a very nice man contacted John and set up a meeting with us at the park office.  At the meeting we told Carlos about RVillage, Passport America, RV Park Reviews, etc.  He told us that they were still a few weeks away from opening but invited us to stay a few days to experience the park first hand.  He said he wanted some feedback from travelers like us so he said he would stop by the RV to hear about how we liked it and if we had any suggestions.

We chose a site in the far right side of the park next to a pergola and fire pit.  After setting up camp and relaxing we heard birds chirping and NO ROAD NOISE at all.  Oak trees are scattered throughout the park and the park is surrounded by pasture land giving it a real nature feel.  There is a nice dog run in the front right hand side of the park and another fire pit in the front of the park.  The clubhouse/office has a laundry and restrooms with showers and is brand new and really beautiful.

The sites are spacious and there are nice picnic tables at each site.  Another plus is that the park has 90 sites with 30/50 amp electricity, water, sewer, very good Wi-Fi signal as well as cable tv! Of the 90 sites 59 are pull-throughs and 31 are back ins.  The water pressure was perfect and the placement of the utilities at each site is just right. We rated this park a 9 out of 10 with the only drawback (to us) being crushed aggregate pads (rather than concrete) and no patio.

I really think we may have found a new home for our RV each year as we return to College Station.  We encourage you to check out RV Haven should you find yourself anywhere nearby.  College Station has a lot to offer visitors with numerous wonderful restaurants, shopping, Happy Hours, the George Bush Library, the revitalized downtown Bryan, and of course the many activities available at Texas A&M University.  Be sure to visit the Bryan/College Station Convention Center and Visitors Bureau for more information about events in and around Bryan/College Station. And if you stay at RV Haven Park we hope you will say Hello to Carlos for us!

  1. Great that you got to try this park out before leaving CS. Will this park allow you to wash your rig? I really like that about that feature of your usual CS park.
