Whispering Oaks RV Park Offers Big Texas Accommodations
Texans have been known to do things in a big way, and Whispering Oaks RV Park off of I-10 between Houston and San Antonio is no exception. For starters, 42 of the Weimar-based park’s 51 spaces are pull-through sites, making the park a favorite destination of drivers of big RVs. In the same hearty Lone Star spirit, sites boasts fire rings, and wood is sold on the premises to keep the campfire going.
Guests can keep the pilot light in their RV lit as well with propane sold seven days of the week. There’s also a well-stocked store. Each full-hookup site boasts 50 amps of power for steady supply of juice for air conditioning and other appliances. You can also rely on the shade from the oaks that tower over the sites.
Walk out of your RV to enjoy the dog run, horseshoe pit and playground. Traveling with a group? The large pavilion hosts club outings, family reunions and other group events. Hungry travelers can order up tasty meals on the premises from Hunt Brothers Pizza, which serves up a variety of pizzas along with spicy hot wings. Wash your clothes after a busy day at the park’s 24-hour laundry service and if your RV needs to attention, you don’t have to hunt for a repair facility: mechanical repairs are available for RV engines and chassis. To add to the upscale environment, paved interior roads link the park’s buildings and sites.
Location also plays a Texas-size role in Whispering Oak’s appeal. The RV resort is just one hour away from the shimmering waters of the gulf and an hour from the sophisticated metropolis of Houston. Head the opposite direction for about two hours, and you’ll reach San Antonio, home of the Alamo and other historic Texas attractions.
Local treasures also beckon visitors. Peruse vintage items during Texas Antique Weekend, held in the spring and fall in nearby Carmine. Also popular is the Fayetteville Country Music Show, in which traditional country music, western swing and country gospel songs are performed regularly in the small town just 20 minutes away. Other big events include the Painted Churches Tour, made up of visits to colorfully painted places of worship that are on the Register of Historic Places, and the Scare Crow Festival, which celebrates the iconic straw men who protect farmers’ crops.
