Camping at Northshore RV Resort – Onalaska, Texas on Lake Livingston

We’re finally out of the desert and loving it! Spring is in full bloom in Texas. We’ve been enjoying roadside wildflowers, green grass, and the sound of waves rolling into the shore.

Our journey back to Alabama led us to Northshore RV Resort in Onalaska, Texas. It’s a waterfront community overlooking Lake Livingston.

Check out our YouTube video of Northshore RV Resort!


Here’s the breakdown:

Location: Onalaska, Texas

GPS: 30.081540, -95.09401

Price:  $40/night (this is the starting rate during peak season). North shore offers a Passport America discount September-February, Monday through Thursday.

Date/Temp: We stayed here in mid March for three nights. The high was 75 and the low was 40.


Amenities: Northshore RV Resort offers full hookups with 30amp and 50amp connections. They have a modern pool and splash pad, kayaks & paddle boards, a beautiful grass picnic area, a boat launch, and a station to clean fresh fish! At the main office they offer a 24-hour, passcode protected laundry, bathroom, and shower facility. One of our favorite perks is that they allow RV cleaning at your site.

Noise: This is a family friendly park with lots of foot traffic, creating occasional noise during the day. At night we heard the waves rolling in, for us thats a plus! Our spot was far from the road, but if it were closer a soft rumble could be heard.

Grocery/Errands: The small town of Onalaska offers very basic shopping. Just 7 miles east is Livingston, Texas – there you can find many more shopping and dining options.

Dog Friendly: The park allows leashed dogs and has a moderate sized, fenced-in dog park. We took advantage of the park and our pup was pleased to get some exercise.

Wifi/Cell: The park offers free wifi and its surprisingly efficient. We were able to stream Netflix and quickly upload YouTube videos with it! There are times in the evening when the network becomes bogged down, but it didn’t happen often. Our AT&T received full 4G service, however our T-Mobile was only receiving 2G.

Entertainment: The park offers many water-based activities. Unfortunately, it was too cold during our stay to partake. We drove 20 miles to the Sam Houston Nation Forest and hiked a portion of the Lone Star Trail. It was a well maintained trail that spans over 100 miles.


Overall: We really enjoyed our brief time at Northshore RV Resort. We were able to refresh and relax as we prepare for our next stint of boondocking. We were even able to wash our trailer during our stay!
