Lake Conroe / Houston North KOA - A 'House of Fauci's' Camping Experience

After a lot of research, conversation, and money managing my husband purchased an RV for the family. Our plan is to use the RV to get us out of the house more and go on little camping trips; even if the camp grounds are less than an hour away. We rarely go on vacation so this will be a great opportunity for much needed family time away from the house. Our first camping trip was to Lake Conroe in Montgomery, Texas. 


When we arrived to the campground at Lake Conroe, the weather was beginning to clear up from the earlier rain. As we parked the RV and got settled we were blessed enough to see a beautiful rainbow. 



Lake Conroe has so much to offer its campers. Not only did they have a beautiful lake with tons of fish, but the scenery is gorgeous. The little cottages that they have available for rental are the cutest with all of their colors. 



Our family had so much fun fishing at Lake Conroe. This was actually the girls and I's first time and we did really good. Thankfully, the girl's dad was there to release the fish. We were good at catching them but releasing them was not something that we had any skill at. 

In addition to a beautiful lake that provided not only beauty but fish, Lake Conroe has a really nice playground and play area for kids. They have a huge basketball court, game area, sand area, a bouncy pillow and a play area. My girls had a great time and it was nice to see them have even more fun. 



We took advantage of the gorgeous weather and ate each meal outside by the lake. It was so relaxing to sit outside and enjoy the peacefulness that this lake had to offer. In addition, everyone that was visiting this lake was extremely kind. We had neighbors give us extra worm bait and we also had neighbors that gave the girls some of their yummy watermelon. 



At night we roasted marshmallows and made S'mores while we listened to quiet music from the camper. 



Overall, for our first camping experience as a family, we had a fantastic time and created so many memories. Lake Conroe / Houston North KOA was so pretty and had plenty of things that kept the girls busy that I would love to go back; especially since this was the place that the girls and I caught our first fish.

  1. Sounds like an awesome vacation--especially the s'mores because you can't go camping without making s'mores!

  14. What a spectacular looking place! I really think that Lake Conroe is the perfect go-to place if you are camping with the whole family. It's not devoid of necessary amenities like other camper parks and destinations and I totally agree that the scenery is just amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your first camping trip with us! Cheers!
