First, this Park should be re-named DogWood! There is a huge pet run for those that have pets and the pet owners do nothing to contain their animals to that area. Yes, there are rules and rules but the Park Management does nothing about these "rule breaker actions." For example: there is a 2 dog rule per RV. On numerous occasions the door to an RV would open and out come four dogs! Many horse trailers (with RV sleeping quarters) one such trailer had four border collies (unleashed) running all over the Park. There was a range (feed) truck running all over the park at times. Some of the guests would have to use the dump station at the termination of their stay because the full hook-ups they had at their site consisted of a PVC sewer pipe that was higher than the pipe on their RV! Stay away from Dog Wood. They have many rules but NO ONE enforces anything! Our daily rate reflected a monthly stay. We won't be back!

This is a full service resort. There are two distinct areas where Victoria Palms could concentrate to really improve their standing as the best in the valley. First, The resort has gone to the dogs! The only non-pet area is the old and smaller (original) park area. In the rest of the park there are dogs everywhere. There appears to be a concentrated effort by the dog owners to pick up after their animal, but dog waste broiling in the hot Texas sun, in the handy containers before they are emptied, is less than inviting. Further, the garbage is collected only twice a week. Outside those two days, guess where the park insists you deposit your trash? You guessed it, behind the restaurant in a non-covered, sorting bin, where that same hot Texas sun ripens the trash.
