Dubbed the “Space City” because it’s home to NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center, Houston is a bustling metropolis. In fact, it’s actually the most populous city in Texas and the fourth most populous city in the United States.
If you’re looking for work, Houston might be the place to move. With its economy made up of energy, manufacturing, aeronautics, and transportation, Houston has the most Fortune 500 headquarters behind New York. And similar to New York, Houston is known for its diversity. In 2010, Rice University put out a report that stated Houston surpassed both Los Angeles and New York as the most diverse city in the country.
Best Mobile Home Parks in Houston
1. Woodland Estates
Amenities, here we come! Woodland Estates boasts an impressive collection of perks including a sports center, swimming pool, soccer field, playground, clubhouse, basketball courts, and a grassy recreational area. It’s pet-friendly too! This large community with 342 sites is located 16 miles from downtown Houston and a 25-minute drive.

2. Camino Villa Mobile Home Park/RV Park
Technically located in Pasadena, Texas, just 22 miles east and a 25-minute drive from downtown, Houston, Camino Villa Mobile Home Park is the perfect quiet community. With numerous reviews praising the park’s calm, quiet nature, those who seek a relaxed
environment should look into this community.
As far as amenities, because the park doesn’t have a website, we couldn’t find a list of features. However, a handful of reviews mentioned fishing, so we figure they have a lake or pond available.
One reviewer writes, “I never thought about moving [to] a mobile home, but the staff there gave my husband and I a change of heart. We have [fallen] in love with the place and staff.”
Site Features: Because they don’t have a website, we couldn’t find specifics on their sites. They allow both traditional mobile homes and RVs in their community.
Reviews: 58 Google reviewers give the resort an impressive 4.2 out of 5 stars.
The short: Even though Camino Villa doesn’t have an online presence, their 58 reviews speak for themselves. This laid back environment might be the perfect fit.
3. Cedar Creek Forest
Cedar Creek Forest is located just under 30 miles northwest and a 30-minute drive from downtown Houston. They describe their community as having large lots, large trees, and a convenient location.
For $375 a month for a single wide lot, ($400 for a doublewide and $425 for a premium) residents can enjoy the tranquil atmosphere of the park. If they’re in the mood for a night out on the town, Houston is only a half hour away.
Google reviewers describe the park as well taken care of and clean. There doesn’t seem to be amenities, or at least their website doesn’t mention them, but their reviewers don’t seem to mind.
Site Features: There are single wide, doublewide, and premium lots available. Rental cost includes water, wastewater, and garbage fees.
Reviews: 27 Google reviewers give the resort an impressive 4.7 out of 5 stars.
The short: If you aren’t looking for a community loaded with amenities, Cedar Creek Forest could be a good choice.
4. Woodgate Mobile Home Park
Woodgate Mobile Home Park (not to be confused with Woodland Estates listed above) is 14 miles and a 20-minute drive northwest of downtown Houston.
This is a mid-sized community with just over 140 lots. One reviewer writes that they don’t have RV spots for campers, making us think that (unless the reviewer was mistaken) this community is only for long-term residents.
It’s described as a nice, quiet place to live, but there’s no mention of any amenities via their Google reviews. But with Houston, just a short drive, the lack of amenities may not be a problem for those willing to travel.
Site Features: Due to a lack of a website, we couldn’t find information on their site features.
Reviews: 24 Google reviewers give the resort an impressive 4.3 out of 5 stars.
The short: Woodgate is a good choice for a quiet community with a short drive to downtown Houston.
5. Holiday Village Mobile Home Park
The quickest drive to the city at only 15 minutes, this would be an ideal commute for anyone working downtown or near the city.
The park boasts numerous large trees, giving it an outdoorsy vibe. Unfortunately, a lack of website and any web presence leaves us with questions. Are there amenities? What is the rental cost?
Site Features: We could not find any information on site features.
Reviews: 19 Google reviewers give the resort an impressive 4.3 out of 5 stars.
The short: If you want to live in a well-reviewed mobile home park that’s close to the city, Holiday Village is your best bet.
