Spring Creek Park Campground

At just a 40 minute drive from the city center, this is your best option for free camping near the City of Houston, TX. How can you beat 7-days of free camping with full hookups in a clean, level, campground? But because reservations are required, it’s difficult to get a space when you want one.

In our experience, the spaces here rival that of most modern RV parks, with level, concrete pads, full hookups (that work), good cellular signal, and the park’s restroom facilities are right across the driveway. There’s even an children’s playground a short walk behind you.

We found reservations to be much easier if you call because you can ask the staff for which spaces have the closest opening dates. Weekends are almost always full, so it’s better to find something from Monday to Thursday.

But this is still one of Harris County’s busiest parks, and there’s a lot of vehicular traffic, and pedestrian traffic, that goes by in front of these spaces. It’s not private by any means. We found a fair amount of noise during the day, but because the park closes at night, there is pure silence and peace when the sun goes down.
