There are advantages to living on a lake –

  • Fishing
  • Swimming
  • Hanging around with friends around a bar-b-que grill
  • Basking by the lake and getting a tan.

AND, you will have the advantage of other activities close enough for a day trip or a night of fun.

For kayaking enthusiasts, there are two possibilities close to Thompson Lake RV Resort:  Village Creek and the Neches River. 

Lake Charles, Louisiana

Try out the Golden Nugget or L’Auberge Casino, or one of the many more casinos.  Explore all the casinos with gaming galore and dining experiences.  Soak it up with outdoor adventure along the Creole Nature Trail and watercraft rentals.  Immerse yourself in Lake Charles’ rich culture at local museums and galleries.  Party It Up as you tap your feet to free live music concerts by the Lake or renowned acts at the casino resorts.

Bolivar Island

This sparsely inhabited island has a view of the Intercoastal Canal with its ocean-going ships, the wide ocean, and quiet beaches.  This is perfect for a day away from the bustling world, watching the gulls, fishing in the surf, or just sitting and listening to the waves come into the beach.


Then come back home to the peace and quiet of Thompson Lake.
