This is a 55+ resort. It is owned by ELS (Thousand Trails and Encore). It is located in the city of Harlingen, Texas, right in the Rio Grande Valley. Easy drive to S. Padre Island. The park is large, with 535 sites with over 400 being RV sites, and the sites are spacious. Concrete Patios 10X40 feet. 30/50 amp electric. There are quite a few permanent park models, but the majority of the residents are in RVs, quite a change from the usual snow bird parks. There are activities galore (over 450) and super friendly people. A very active community. The park is far enough out of town to feel like it is in the country, but close enough to everything that there is shopping, dining and entertaining only a few miles away. Thousand Trails has about 45 sites here and, depending on your membership you may be able to stay for 2 weeks at $3 a night. Not eligible for Zone members. Thousand Trails members also get a greatly reduced site fee for a seasonal stay. With a cafe called Windy Cafe and street names like Windy Lane, Windswept Lane, and Windgate Lane You can bet that this area is windy, There is also Sunshine Court and Sunway Drive, so expect lots of sunshine as well. I would have given this park 5 stars, except that the bathrooms near the pool are very badly in need of renovating. Everything else is just about perfect. Thanks to the wonderful office, activity and maintenance staff. We camped here in a 39 foot motorhome for 2 1/2 months. Will we come back here? You betcha! We camped at Tropic Winds RV Resort (55+ Park) in a Motorhome.
