As I have stated in previous articles one of the greatest things about having an RV is the fact that quite frequently you are able to stay in proximity to fairs, festivals, concerts, sporting events and other activities for far less than a hotel room would cost. Sometimes you will find a campground nearby or sometimes you are able to boondock as close as the parking lot (think infield at a Nascar race!). And when you are a fulltimer it makes it even easier to stay somewhere for an extended period if needed.
This has been the case for us now while we are in Houston for my husband to treat at MD Anderson Cancer Center. We were very happy to find the Lake View RV Resort, which at 11991 S Main Street in Houston is only 5 miles from the center. They also have a free shuttle which makes it easy to get to and from appointments without dealing with the Houston traffic yourself.
The resort is very clean and well maintained with concrete pads and picnic tables at each of the 284 full hook up sites, with 32 of them being pull thrus. You can bring your own RV, or the resort has fully furnished park models as well. Sites and park models are rented by the night, week or month. Amenities include:
- Free WiFi
- Free cable TV
- Coded gate with onsite security
- Pool and Jacuzzi
- Fire pits
- Outdoor kitchens and fire pits
- Recreation room with pool table, ping pong table and exercise equipment
- Rental golf carts by the day, week or month
- Business center with computers and high-speed internet
- Stocked fishing lake with piers
- Dog wash station
- Free air station
And the amenity that may be the most helpful for RVers that are staying at the resort for medical reasons – the free shuttle service that leaves and returns to the resort every 90 minutes. The shuttle stops not only at MD Anderson but also at the various other hospitals as well as some retail stores before returning to the resort.
So if you are ever in the position of needing medical care at one of the highly respected hospitals in downtown Houston, be sure to check out Lake View RV Resort as it is sure to be an easy answer to both questions of where to stay and how to get there!
