We needed to come to Houston for an extended period – close to three months – and we specifically needed to be near certain people, which led to our choice of Fallbrook RV Resort. There are several parks around the Houston area run by this company – Quality RV Resorts – but this one is closest to everything we needed to be near. We really had no idea what to expect. It is fairly new and only had one mediocre review online that we could find. However, the price was right and we needed to GO.
Well, we have been pleasantly surprised ever since we rolled in! The resort is large, clean and well kept with nice wide, even, paved roads. The office is run by extremely pleasant people, and the amenities are all just wonderful!
Let’s start with our site. It’s plenty wide, with a nice FLAT paved pad and picnic table provided. It’s so LONG that we are able to fit out truck, our 32 ft travel trailer AND our Subaru Forester. Pretty awesome!
Yes, this is more of a parking-lot style place. Not too many trees, although they have planted some that WILL grow and will provide more shade and privacy later. However, in a big city such as Houston, we aren’t expecting “woodsy”. There are areas further out of the city where you can absolutely have that – but on this trip, our priority was proximity to people.
The main building is where you find the office, personal mailboxes (which are FREE by the way!), clubhouse, 24 hour laundry facility and restro0oms/showers. I haven’t taken photos of everything, but I did cover those areas in my video of the facility:
The clubhouse is so nice – very cool in the Houston heat – with vending machines, fresh popcorn and coffee offered daily, an ice/water machine which we have used multiple times a day and have not bought any drinking water… a lounge area with LARGE flat screen TV, a pool table, shuffle board, a few pieces of work out equipment. One amazing feature is the computer room with three computers that are hooked up to high speed internet AND include printers and paper. There are also two separate printers for hooking up your own laptop. The laundry facility is commercial grade and very clean, as well as open 24 hours. For extra convenience, there is no need to lug quarters. You just purchase a laundry card that you can use on all the machines. Near the clubhouse is the trash area with four VERY large dumpsters, and a very nice bonus – a dog washing station!
There are also THREE designated dog walking areas throughout the park! It is a very dog friendly place, while staying nice and clean for everyone’s enjoyment.
Outside, at the back of the clubhouse is a nice patio area with rocking chairs and ceiling fans overlooking the man made lake.
Looking down the other way, you’ll see the fire pit and bar at the other end:
This is one of two fire pits on the property – the other is down at the other end of the lake.
Right behind the fire pit is a very nice bar area complete with TV, seating area, ice machine and beverage cooler:
Right around the corner from the bar is a grilling area! Two nice BBQ grills each with a set of burners next to it and plenty of prep space. These are for all guests to use!
Next to the clubhouse is the pool area. AHHHH the pool area. It is SUCH a nice pool!
This has really been an oasis for us since we arrived. It was SO hot when we got here (mid 90’s and HUMID) so this was a great retreat. Surprisingly very few people come to the pool during the day, despite the resort being pretty full and there being a lot of people who ARE around during the day like we are. We’ve had it all to ourselves or maybe shared with 2-3 people at the most. One of the biggest benefits of this pool is that they treat the entire area surrounding the pool 3 times daily in order to maintain a “mosquito free zone”!! So far I can say I have found this to be true!! There is music playing around the pool (so far always country, which is great for us) and there is a very nice hot tub. Brian loves the fact that there are two long benches in the pool to sit on, and we love the shallow end which is not only great for kids but is a nice spot to sit or lay and be in the water without swimming when you just feel like chillin’ out.
The first two weeks here it was VERY hot… but once it cooled down to the upper 70’s, low 80’s the water got kinda chilly. No more swimming for me 🙁 Then, suddenly…. this sign appeared…
We had been here for 3 weeks now and have nothing but positive things to say. We have been comfortable and well taken care of whenever we need something. We feel this is an excellent place for a long term stay and would be equally comfortable for a short term stay as well. In the North Houston area, this is a great choice. Although not in the safest area, if this is where you need to be, don’t stay anywhere else! They have a security fence around the entire property, and codes are required for both drive in and walk in entry. We have felt very safe and it has generally been very quiet.
The Scotts give this RV Resort 4.5/5 – the only thing lacking for us is a more woodsy atmosphere but that just isn’t possible in this area. So if you take that out of the equation we would give 5/5. To recap, these are the amenities offered:
- Convenient Location in North Houston

- Relaxing Patio
