About this place

Escape the hustle and bustle of the big city! We invite you to our private, secluded lakefront campsite that we fondly refer to as our own little slice of Texas Paradise. Come immerse yourself in a majestic...rural...little country hideaway nestled amongst the trees. Your next getaway is just a short drive from Houston, The Woodlands, Spring, Conroe, and even the Dallas area! One other special thing to note: when we say private we mean private. Your lakefront campsite comes complete with surrounding privacy fencing and a locking gate. We invite you to Shabbat Retreat (immerse in sweet rest) while camping and sleeping under the stars. Shabbat literally means, he rested. And, couldn't we all use a little rest from time to time: a day of peace, meditation and time set aside to just relax - a time of refreshing and reflection to recharge and experience the beauty of nature...creation? Besides, isn't there always time to make time for yourself? We dare you to say Nah, I'm good.

Our little campsite offers a dash of Country Charm for your local Glampcation. Fish, Kayak,
play board games, BBQ with family and friends or whatever your heart desires while you enjoy your very own exclusive spot with a view on a private lake - where you will call our cool little canvas Tent of Meeting, home. You will have a cozy bed with a real mattress and everything you need to enjoy a roaring campfire along with many other optional amenities.

Shabbat Retreat, a secluded property and private camp center, also offers an inspiring experiential Tour of one of the best Tabernacle Collections in the World ~ museum-quality, full-size reproductions of The Tabernacle of Moses furnishings and other biblical artifacts! We are also known as The Tabernacle In The Wilderness. And, our Signature Campsite on a Private Lake with our little Tent of Meeting is just the place...for our guests to...escape the hustle and bustle of the city...for a quick simply refresh, relax and Experience The Gift Of Time!

Important Notice:
Water is provided. Extra water is available onsite near the main retreat center for free refills.
Cellular/Internet/Electricity: We DO NOT provide WiFi or Electricity.
Gas or Solar Power Generators are campsite extra options available for your use.
Also, Electricity is nearby, please inquire if needed.
Our beautiful Tent is not air conditioned. We have air conditioned Cabins available upon request.

If you're looking to unplug for a little while, this is your perfect opportunity at our campsite with a stunning lakefront view and private lake access.

We clean and sanitize our campsite thoroughly before our guests' arrival.

CAPACITY is for 2 inside the main tent, plus an additional 2 - 4 extra persons can be accommodated in a "set it up yourself" pop-up tent provided for extra guests, but you will have to bring your own air mattresses/sleeping pads for this tent. We have available on offer queen air mattresses as an extra option for our guests who prefer to have this provided for them.

The Space:
Lakefront Campsite with a stunning view! Just a short drive from Houston! Your Weekend Getaway! Come relax and unwind!
Our campsites are off-the-grid which means they generally do not have access to electricity, wifi, or modern plumbing. Instead, they offer the chance to relax, unplug, and fully experience nature!

Your campsite includes a 10'x12' (120 square feet) safari-style canvas tent on a raised wooden platform. Inside the tent, you'll find one queen bed or a queen-size bunk bed (see photos for the exact setup). The tent is big enough for the bed plus one or two extra sleeping bags on the floor. Aside from the canvas tent, campers can also use the extra 5-person pop-up dome tent that’s provided. You'll also have a 6-ft picnic table, outdoor fire pit, 2 Adirondack chairs, and a heating source to keep you warm and toasty at night.

Max Occupancy: This refers to the total number of campers allowed onsite with your reservation.

Toilets: Every campsite is equipped with a camp toilet (we call it the Loo). This is a simple wooden box with a toilet seat and a bucket inside. To use, line the bucket with a CleanWaste Sani-Bag supplied at the camp prior to use. Afterwards, simply tie the bag up and place it in a trash bag. CleanWaste Sani-Bags use a NASA-developed gelling/deodorizing agent that helps prevent spills and keeps everyone safe and clean.

Showers: Every Signature campsite comes with a Coleman Sun Shower. The sun shower has a reservoir that holds up to 5 gallons of water, potentially enough for multiple showers. It's constructed of heat-locking material that warms the water when it's left in the sun, even on cool days.

Interaction with Guests:
Upon check out, you should leave-no-trace of your stay and be sure your campsite is returned to its natural glory! While this host does not charge a cleaning fee, we do expect campsites to be left how they were found. After you check out, take everything you brought in, and be sure to leave your trash at the designated location on the property.

If there is evidence of trash or damage to the campsite or the CampKeeper’s property, you may be charged a cleaning fee of $50. Just make sure to follow the Camper Manual posted at your campsite and you'll be set!

Other Things to Note:
Carefully read through the email you will receive with details and information before your stay. Please follow our provided driving directions. Do not rely on Google maps.
