We have stayed at Flamingo Lake 1-2 times a year, usually for 2-3 months at a time. The first couple of years I rated the campground a 10, but the last 2 years have seen an increased number of full time residents. The section of the campground near the interstate looks more like a trailer park than camping resort. The resort has increased kid activities, adding some water equipment for climbing and sliding, however they have a daily charge for use. They are also now charging a fee for camper's guests to even enter the campground during the summer months. The lake and swim areas are nice and there is a cafe on the grounds. The rate reflects a monthly fee.
Rate is based on weekly rate. While "luxury" is a bit of an overstatement, this is a very nice facility well worth the rate. The facility is well maintained and the staff friendly. We were In a large, level spot that accommodated our 45er with room to spare. We enjoyed being a short walk to the beach, shops, and restaurants. There are lots of none beach activities in the area as well with nice paved walking/biking trails in Gulf State Park. We also enjoyed a morning leisurely kayaking in the delta with 5 Rivers Safari based in Spanish Fort.
Big Oak is aptly named. There are a number of large live oaks providing shade. Of course the beautiful trees prevent satellite reception. They have sites that accommodate a 45er. Short distance from I-10 so good for over night stop. Quite a few seasonal/permanent residents. Check out Decent Pizza about 2.5 miles on the other side of I-10. Would overnight here again.
This is our second stay. Nice sites that are level and accommodate 45ers. Dean lake with two swimming beaches. The only negative is that one side of the park is near the interstate so there is traffic noise when you are outside. The low nightly rate reflects the monthly rate. We generally stay 2-3 months. Will definitely stay again.
Older park appears to have many permanent residents. The best thing I can say is that the staff is very friendly. We called ahead to confirm they could handle a 45 ft with toad and were assured it would be no problem. The site could handle it but their roads are not big rig friendly. Would not bring in anything longer than 40 ft and recommend dropping your toad.
Very peaceful. Park is about 30 years old so was a tight fit for our 45 foot motorhome. Owners are working on upgrading the sites. Everyone was very friendly. Not much in the way of entertainment for kids unless they like to fish or bring their own things to do. Nice state parks within an hours drive. Would stay again.
Nice facility geared toward annual membership. Good Sam and Passport America membership is accepted. They do not take reservations, but you should call ahead for space availability. Only negatives are interstate traffic noise and tall trees that blocked our dome satellite. Don't follow GPS directions, use the directions on their website. Plenty of space for our 45 foot RV with toad attached. Would stay again.
Good overnight campground. Would not stay more than a couple of nights due to I-90 traffic noise. Site was a tight fit for our 44 coach towing a Jeep. Hosts very pleasant. Campground well maintained. Good water pressure, but weak WiFi at our site. Would stay again.
Limited big rig pullthroughs, so call ahead. We stayed overnight in 44' motorhome towing a Jeep. Site accommodated our rig. Older park with nice trees and large grassy areas. Would overnight again. Good water pressure.
Good overnight spot if traveling. Staff was very friendly. Nice restaurant on site. Katy State Park is behind the campground and is a nice place to walk or bike. Nightly rate is a bit high considering lack of ambiance and amenities. Will stay again.
Excellent park for long or short stay. We stayed a month this visit. Last year we wintered there during one of the worst winters in years. Park roads were constantly plowed to keep them open. Resort has nice fish ponds/lakes and walking trails. Only downside is that it is near the airport.
