Mother's Day Weekend at Brazos Bend State Park

  • to

  • Brazos Bend State Park

    21901 Fm 762 , Needville, TX (map)

    29.371630 -95.641396

  • Ask the Ranger for my campsite location when you check in at HQ.
  • For those of you staying in town for Mother's Day, let's do some camping! Or, better yet, get your Mom a site and bring her camping!!! This is MY Mom's favorite Park!

    We'll camp, cook, look at alligators, and visit the George Observatory on Saturday evening. Also, this Park is loaded down with geocaches, so bring your GPS and let's find some of them! I'll print out handouts, so you can pick and choose which one's you'll look for during the weekend.

    I have reserved some campsites with water and electricity for us to share (first come first served). They'll be assigned when we check in, but will be in either the Red Buckeye or Burr Oak Camping Loops. Of course, if you'd prefer more room and want to reserve your own site, by all means! Just call TPWD at (512)[masked] to make your reservation.

    My plans have changed and I can't make it now. I have a screened shelter reserved that I can't get my money back on. Does anyone want to use it? Let me know!

      I know what you mean, Jeannine... I've got 3 campsites and a shelter that I don't need now, too...

    Looks like the weather is not going to be good at all. Thunderstorms all weekend, so stargazing is out, too. I've received several emails and I don't blame y'all for canceling off. I guess I'll go ahead and cancel this event. Hope y'all have a good, dry weekend! We'll try again later.

    How far is this from the Woodlands? If I don't get all my gear, can I still come just for the day?

      Sure thing.

      I'll look for you guys sometime during the day on Saturday. We'll stay until before it gets dark. I'm bringing both my kids. Are you planning on eating all together? If so, what supplies can we bring? If not, no problem. We can bring a picnic just for ourselves. So excited!!

    Sophie, is there any sort of agenda for Sat. or Sun.? I'm wondering where to meet up with y'all when I get there...

      Jean, there is never a schedule when I camp... We are there to relax. We all can do whatever we want... When we want... Or not do anything at all... It's all OK. ;-) I'm sure you'll find someone at our campsites whenever you arrive. Just ask for my site numbers when you check in at the HQ.

    Is anyone taking a bike to ride the trails? There are some nice ones like the Bayou, Sawmill, River view, Bluestem etc. Many people just ride around the lake but there are other trails for hybrid and mountain bikes that go deep in the woods and along the river. I would be glad to lead if there are any takers.

    I would love to hike with you guys for a day. Is there still room?

    • Sophie

      Just a day hike? There's always room for day visitors, no problem. If joining for the camping, looks like there are 3 spots open at this time... You can check on the RSVPs on the right side of the website...

    Hey, I'll be there for food (yum), hiking, etc. but not for camping. The "children" can't cross their legs overnight. lol

    I've reserved a shelter for my son and I. Looking forward to this. It's been too long since I've gone camping!

    Sophie I just tried adding a campsite but all the electric sites are booked can I share w/someone? Bringing my grand daughter and my dog.

    This is a maybe. If I get the gear by then, I'll join even if it's just for one night.

    Coincidentally, I am already camping at Brazos Bend SP with another camping club during this weekend, so I would like to join up with the T.O.W.N. group also for some of your activities. My 14 yo daughter should be camping with me, but not sure about my mom yet.

    As long as I am off work I will be there.
