Wanderlust Waypoints: Van Zandt is 4 acres of Texas farmstead with a beautiful lake (okay, it’s legally a pond because it’s 4 acres, not 5… but … splitting hairs), a playground, and some awesome folks. If you need a place where you can relax and work on your rig at the same time, our Van Zandt location may just fit that bill.
Located in Chandler, TX, our Van Zandt location is situated on 28 acres of Texas homestead. We’ve got a 4-acre lake that is stocked with fish. It really is a gorgeous view to wake up and look at while having your coffee. So the lake is beautiful, the fishing is great, and we’ve even got a playground to distract the kiddos while you catch dinner.
Power is available for both 15/20 amp and 30 amp hookups and water is available to fill your tanks. We’ve got tons of open space to enjoy and frolic.. yes, I said frolic… we encourage frolicking… 😀
