New RV Resort Opens In Houston
The newest RV resort to open in the Houston area is Eric & Jay’s RV Park. Almost like a response to the need for more quality RV options due to the pandemic, Eric & Jay’s RV Park opened in mid-June in the heart of Houston.
The 10-acre resort is located just off State Highway 288 and a short drive from the Texas Medical Center, Houston Zoo, and the Museum District. An RV snowbird’s enticement is 10 percent off during the first month’s stay.
Amenities at Eric & Jay’s RV Park
Eric & Jay’s RV Park is a bit of a hidden gem, according to Eric Houston, one-half of the team who created the resort; Jay Fields is the other co-owner.
“We have your typical amenities with an outdoor grill, outdoor kitchen, a well-stocked fishing pond, a community garden that’s currently under construction, a nice swimming pool with lots of privacy, a 12-person hot tub, laundry facilities, a fitness workout room, and much more,” says Eric.
Other amenities in this pet-friendly resort include 114 sites ranging from 30-feet to 40-feet long, with full hookups including 20/30/50 amp electrical, water, sewer, and a picnic table at each site. The 3,300-square-foot clubhouse is spectacular! It includes a 70-inch HDTV, a coffee bar, and easy chairs for reclining in this Hill Country retro lounge.
