This is a friendly park. There is as much, or as little, to do as you choose. There are activities every day, although some are not well attended. The "Quilting" is actually assembling quilt tops in a group for a charity for Mexico...Not a bad plan at all....just not "quilting". The other listed "sewing group" doesn't exist this year....I was disappointed as those were 2 of the reasons I chose this park. The staff is incredibly friendly, the facilities are clean, and the 10 acre lake is a nice visual. The shuffle boards are not level, but if you just want to play around, they are fine. The pool was clean and warm, as well as the Hot Tub. All in all, a good value, and a nice park. - Rusty Quilter

This is our 3rd year here at Canyon Lake. We enjoy both the park and the local area. We are just off the main roads (less noise) but still just a short drive from any type of shopping you may want. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The same can be said for the residents, it seems like a big family. This type of atmosphere makes It really nice to come back to each year! As other have mentioned you can keep busy all day with activities, or just sit back by the pool and read a book, your choice. - mihobbycop

The lake at this park can go almost dry and then water is pumped into it. Bit of a disappointment. Clubhouse is good. They have rock n roll and country jams. Needs a little work but there is improvements. Nice place. - Snooker2

Basically an older snowbird park. Stayed here a month and rate reflects monthly rate of 525.00 for cement pad + electric which is charged at a rate well above their cost. Best watch your electric usage and be ready for a shock at checkout. Grass site would be 50.00 less. Forget the WiFi which is useless, bring your own hot spot. Verizon 4G signal is marginal to good. On site golf course is a 9 hole short course in need of water and a greens keeper. Dumpsters at at the far end of the campground with nothing close to sites for garbage. Park is fairly well maintained but shows its age. Many activities going here and in the valley for the 55+ crowd. No picnic tables or fire rings. - Money2Burn

Park is an older park but taken care of. The residents/long term folks do take pride in their park. Half of the sites are concrete and the other half are in grass. We took the last cement spot because it was supposed to rain for the next couple weeks (which it did). No one wanted that cement spot because it was 30 amps but I figured we could manage and did want the cement. Others took the grass and sure enough, got stuck in the mud. The trash is way to the other side of park in mud to get there. There is a lot to do in the area and we did feel secure there in the park. Folks were very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again because of the Passport America rates, but would not stay a whole season. - Army Guy

This has been a most miserable winter down here in the Valley. That said, it's not fun to be in a park that has no pool tables, fitness equipment, or the like for when it's too cool out to do anything. The TV and Wii only go so far. If you are into playing guitars, fiddles, and the like this is a great park. We're not. The potholes and patched roads make riding a bicycle a challenge. Most people are really friendly and will help you all they can. We won't return this coming fall, but will be going over to a San Benito park with the facilities we are looking for. And hope for a more normal Valley winter. - shadrack

This is a 55+park. Very friendly. A lot of the residents are from Iowa. That's why we choose this park to stay for the winter. We are from Iowa but live in Texas now (6 years). There is no swimming pool, lots of activities each and every day, roads through out the park are paved, sights are grass. Wi-fi here is very good according to our neighbors; we have our own system. This park is close to all needs that you may have, 2 Walmarts within 15 min. drive, 2 Walgreens with in 15 min drive. Our rate was based up on monthly charge,($314.00) plus electric, daily is $28.00. - Joceil

I think some of the other reviewers are confusing Bentsen Palms with a park with a similar name down the road. This park is awesome! If you are 55+, but are still active! this is the park for you. You get free access to the neighboring State Park with fantastic bird-watching, free bikes, free kayaks, pontoon boat ride ($10), pool, hot tub, pickleball, and lots of well attended activities in this park. It also has the best, constantly-enjoyed, dog park I have ever seen. By the end of my visit, my dog mastered the agility course and had 20 new friends that he dragged me to see every day! The sites were spacious and had the most beautiful flowering landscaping, simply amazing. There are also miles of levee roads that you can walk with your dog off-leash which was awesome daily excercise, although you share the roads with Border Patrol. I had so much fun here that it is now my favorite RV park ever! - MazoCak

This is an older park with freshly sprayed roads over deteriorated asphalt. Some sites are concrete and others are asphalt. There are lots of activities here and it is a fun place to stay. For the size of the park, the pool, clubhouse and hot tub are really small. The fellow guests make it a fun place to camp. We stayed here for a couple months while looking next at possibly buying property in the neighboring neighborhood, which is owned by the same owner. Decided that wasn't a good idea after talking to people there. I'd camp here again but the roads need to be repaved, not just sprayed black. The park needs to fix the flooding problem when it rains. - Maxisback

The sites are large and the proximity to the state park provides excellent hiking, biking and birdwatching/butterflying. However, the management here seems to be uninterested in making their customers happy. - heyduke50

This park is a 55 + park with lots of Winter Texans. They have a nice pool and hot tub, a large recreation hall, exercise room, pool room, laundry, free coffee, lots of activities, and friendly people. Many Winter Texans return year after year to the same site and have significantly upgraded their spot. There are quite a few park models and a very well kept up area of mobile homes at one end. In addition to overnight rates, they have weekly and monthly rates. Overnight and weekly rates include electric. I stayed two weeks in a grassy space with a nice sized concrete patio. Internet was good and it was free. There are lots of grapefruit trees and you are invited to pick fruit from those around the office. There are lots of activities. - longdog2

Clean, pleasant, friendly RV park located in safe neighborhood. Rate is for the month. Paved streets, with grass and dirt lots with concrete patios. Stable electric, good water pressure, fast and stable WiFi. Super clean restrooms and showers with plenty of hot water. Clean laundry facilities. Plenty of weekly activities, shuffle board, bocce ball, potlucks, dances, quilting, crafts, billiards, bicycle rides, etc. Vegetable vendor comes to park weekly. Managers always available and friendly. Highly recommend for month or for the whole season. - TTraveler

This is a great park with lots of activities and friendly people at the Rec Halls both at the Trade Winds Hall and at its sister park across Stewart Rd, Mission Bell. The Managers and Work Campers were wonderful. The restrooms and laundry rooms were always clean. - osofine

Advertised as a pet friendly park,but we had to move to a different site due to 2 crabby neighbors in park models complaining about some barking in the motorhome with windows closed, during the daytime. The manager was rude. The second lot was very dirty and dusty like a dust bowl. The park needs a lot of maintainance and electrical upgrading. The workcampers did an excellent job of keeping the restrooms and showers clean. Sites are small and streets are very narrow. Mostly park models. We will not return. - silverwing

We were here later in the winter season, so many of the seasonal people had left or were in the process of heading home. This is such a friendly place, and everyone is so helpful. There are lots of activities, on-site laundry, heated pool with 2 hot tubs, computers, rec hall, shuffleboard. The one dance we attended was great fun! Our patio was smaller than the new very large ones. Work had started on the electrical service--heard it was 50 amp going in the older section. Sites were larger than most parks in the area, especially in the area off the street. There were a few pull throughs. Just before we left we heard that next year there would be an on-site manager and on-site activity director. Every one seemed to be really pleased about that from what we were told. Might just give this place a try for a longer stay. - stonybirch
Feb 2009 - $30.00
This is a snowbird park & many residents stay from 3 to 5 months. The monthly rate is reasonable, as little as $10.00 a day. Do not believe what it says on the web site. Much of what is advertised is only available on a few sites or not at all. The pool heater don't work properly & the pool is often too cold or too hot to use. The building & grounds maintenance is poor. The manager does not live on site and promises much that she does not deliver. Many of the electric hookups do not provide adequate power. The Wi-Fi does not work well. On the plus side the winter residents are very friendly & helpful & there are many organized activities all run by volunteers in the park. The RV and mobile homes that the park rents are dirty & in poor condition. The sites on 1st & 2nd streets are roomy but the sites in the pool area and Caliche Street are tiny with no place to park your RV or toad. There have been quite a few security problems & some thefts. We will not be back. - pawatt

This is a return trip to this park. Great, friendly people and the activities are too numerous to mention. Enough to say that you will not find a friendlier place to stay. Sure the sites might be a little snug but the location and people make it terrific. - parton123

We booked a monthly stay at Mission Bell based on the website photos and information. When we pulled in we were sorely disappointed with almost every aspect of the park. This is a very old park that has long since fallen into disrepair. Its maintained in "working order" but is badly in need of updating. The website goes on about all the buildings and facilities which are present but not well maintained. The WiFi is only available in two spots for the entire park. One of the locations is the library which is so small and dank I couldn't stay there more than a few minutes.
The restrooms/showers are very small and not well done. The ones we used in our two nights stay (not the scheduled month) smelled of mildew or something.
The spaces are very small and not at all as expected. The tiny concrete patio was being overtaken by weeds and grass that are mowed but otherwise unkempt. Watch out for sand burrs. The wooden electrical post on our site was original to the park and about to fall over.
The park amounts to about half old trailers and newer park model trailers of permanent residents. The roads are extremely narrow, rough asphalt. The park is poorly lit and backs up to what sounds like a discotheque. We were treated to very loud, thumping music late into the night.
Beware they WILL NOT issue any kind of refund if you decide to leave early!!!!!
There are other much better kept parks in the area.
After checking in and getting set up we were offered a tour of the facilities. It was obvious that even our tour guide, one of the camp hosts, didn't like the place or want to be there.
The snow birds we met were all very friendly but the permanent residents were very stand-offish.
I really wish I could offer more positive thoughts about the park but they're just not there. - JWFlyFisher

This is a great park with the friendliest people in South Texas. The office staff were very helpful with our search for a park model for our stay in their park. They have a wonderful list of activities that we enjoy doing. Especially the get-together that the activity director coordinates. The people are very friendly and have made us feel like we belong. - osofine

This is a winter destination park and our third year here. The people here are very friendly, there are a lot of activities. Sites are all back in. The sites have plenty of space on both sides of your RV. There are a lot of park models in the park. Some are always for sale. The rate per month is $310.00 plus electricity. - Joceil
Jan 2014 - $10.00
This park is a 55 and older campground, used mainly for the winter by Winter Texans. The rate is $300 a month plus electric if you pay by the month, cheaper if you pay for the whole winter at once. The park has a large clubhouse, nice swimming pool, paved streets. The sites have paved patios and paved place to park your vehicle. Your RV is parked on grass. There are 40 RV sites and the other spots have park models on them. We are staying here for 2 months. We will be here again. - Joceil

This is not what you'd expect. Mostly mobile homes and park models. Our rv site was long and level but way too narrow. We were next to a mobile home and couldn't open the slides without parking very close to the street. The staff are very friendly, but this park is geared to a much older seasonal crowd. We left without unhooking. - Stevie Ray

The park is located within 100 feet of the main highway and road noise along that side of the park it is very loud 24 hours a day. It didn't help that road work was going on every night we were there. Management told us that there will be a sound barrier built alongside the road, but no one seems to know when. Unfortunately, most of the short term sites are located near the road. That being said, however, the park is very nice and well maintained, and is a combination of park model homes and short term RV sites. The people there for the winter have been going there since they were 55, and one couple we met had been there every year for the last 35 years. The sites are paved and long drive throughs, but narrow. No problems even for the longest rigs and I was able to open my slides and awning without any problems. Electric is metered and paid separately at 16 cents per kilowatt hour. Water pressure is good and cell phone reception is strong. WiFi is available at $30 per month, but is very slow at busy times of the day. Verizon MiFi received a very strong 4G signal all times of the day. The park is fenced and gated and very secure. The pool and spa are heated and very clean. The residents have a very busy activity schedule, and we were invited to participate in everything. The rate shown was a special rate for this winter of $250 plus electric for the month we were there. I would stay here again if I was able to get a site away from the highway. - BigDadDogg

We stayed for the whole month. This is a nice park, but more of a trailer park than an RV park. The "full-timers" or park model owners are pretty "cliquey", and not overly friendly. A limited number of activities were available. In all fairness, the weather in January was pretty bad, so residents were not out and about. Personally, I didn't care for this park --campsites very small & cramped together. I would not go back. It's a 55 & over park, but most residents were WAY older than 55! - mcleff
