Bay Landing Thousand Trails is located six miles from the town of Bridgeport, Texas, and is one of the many Thousand Trails RV parks in Texas. We have had the pleasure of visiting four of them and Bay Landing has become our favorite for several reasons.
Bay Landing Thousand Trails is located six miles from Bridgeport where there are several stores including Brookshires, Lowe’s, and several Dollar Generals to choose from. Brookshires is a grocery store with a bakery, deli, and plenty of fresh produce. There are also quite a few restaurants and they are building a new Whataburger. Mostly, there is plenty of food choices only a few miles away. If you desire something else or you would like a bigger store, then drive seven more miles and there will be a plethora of places to choose from, but the best thing about Bay Landing is the activities.
Bay Landing Thousand Trails has activities suited for nearly everyone. There is a bay where you can play in the water, but even better is there are boats and canoes you could rent for the day. If you have your own boat, there is a place to park it while you are staying at the park. Bay Landing also offers bikes and golf carts to rent while you are staying there. There are also plenty of scheduled activities to choose from, including candy bar bingo, craft hour, movie night, and of course, we can’t forget the wagon ride through the park one night a week. Besides the activities at Bay Landing Thousand Trails, there are the many amenities they offer.
Bay Landing has a swimming pool which goes from three feet to eight feet. There is also a wading pool for the little kids, plus a hot tub. It is important to note there is no lifeguard on duty and there is a rule you have to be fourteen years old to be in the pool area without an adult or legal guardian. The pools and hot tub are outside and not heated because the great heat of Texas heats it up perfectly well. Other choices include a tetherball, basketball court, volleyball court with sand, but let’s not forget about the mini-golf course.
We have spent two holidays here, most recently Independence Day where we were greeted with a wonderful light show. Bay Landing did not put this light show on, but the community of Runaway Bay which is across the bay put on the show.
OTHER THINGS TO KNOW
Bay Landing Thousand Trails has three sections to the park, and each area has it’s own bathhouse. The important thing to remember is there are limited full hook-up sites available. There are a few thirty amp full hook-up sites that fill up fast. If you want or need a fifty amp full hookup site please keep in mind there is an up charge of three dollars a day. There are plenty of thirty amp sites which do not offer sewer, but they do offer a honey wagon service for ten dollars a trip.
I would recommend Bay Landing Thousand Trails RV park based on the staff who work here, the amenities, and the proximity to things to do in the area.
