I wouldn't even call it the north side, that's like from Gallery Furniture to IAH. This the far, FAR northern edge of the metro area. Based on natural landscape, it may as well be in a different state than the south side. Literally 60 miles from the edge of SE Houston proper and over 80 miles from Galveston.

One could say the same for Clear Lake, but its just how Houston is split up.

Yeah, depends on what part though. I'm about 18-19 miles from downtown or the TMC, no worse that Sugar Land. The Woodlands is just about twice as far, isn't really noticeable on a map but once you hop in the car the ride just seems to go on forever. But yeah- there are some pretty isolated places about 15 miles even further down there they still call "Clear Lake."
