Made advance reservation for 4 nights, 48.00 per night plus 4.00 per day resort fee. (We left after our one night deposit.) Arrived Saturday midday and learned the office is closed weekends and the address is for the park model residence area. We called the on duty mgmt and they had no record of our reservation. This is an Encore park and their website is managed by a central operations apparently. We were told our area was a couple blocks away and given a gate code and told to pick any open site. We booked a lake view and found park models in those sites but many other sites open. We selected a site and backed into the grass site. I had to hunt for the water spiggot in the ground and had to dig the grass away from the sewer. The electric was fine. Road noise from highway 77 was loud and constant. I travel full time and this was a short stop visiting friends. We are full time travelers. For us this park was horrible. I would never recommend this Encore park, all the parks in Harlingen seem to be Encore managed, we looked at them and were not impressed. I'm sure Sunshine RV works for some snow birds but not us. As always take the sharp websites and photos with a grain of salt. We've been burned twice now by Encore parks and have learned our lesson. We camped at Encore Sunshine RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Good HEB grocery store a few miles down the highway. Go to the beach on south padre island, about 45 minutes away. Cross the border into Mexico about 45 minutes away.

Reserved a lot in July for a three month stay from Nov - Feb. When we got there was shown a 50' space for our 45' RV, transport trailer and a car. We had told them when we reserved the space what were bringing and that the space would accomodate us and then upon arriving they said we could rent another space to put our transport on for an extra $45 per month. Not happy at all. We camped at Encore Sunshine RV Resort in a Motorhome.

After making the reservation on-line and using the PA rate, we were all set for a week at the resort. On checking-in, they said they would give us a "first time customer deal" for only $99 per week. They then took the PA 50% discount so we ended up paying only $11 per night. The campground had cleared out of their "Winter Texans" and we got a spot in the new section by the lake. The 50 amp CB was weak and kept tripping, so I plugged into the next site and left a message at the office. The next morning, a maintenance person showed up and changed the CB. The only downside to this location at the resort is it is close to the highway and there is a lot of road noise. We camped at Encore Sunshine RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Lots to do in the area. Went across the border to Progreso, Mexico, got some vanilla and had a great lunch. South Padre Island is close enough for a day trip. We did the Segway ride in town and on the beach.

Huge rv park 55 older clientele. Snowbird place, mainlcanadiens (many french) Good size pool. Pickle ball, tennis, wood shop, dance classes, organized suppers bla, bla, bla. Cheap place for winter, sites are close to one another. Not busy before Christmas. Don't know after? Not much in the town. Bur McAllen is a bit bigger with Costco and all the stores you need. The park has lots of organized activities. Good spot overall We camped at Encore Sunshine RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I would like to rate this park higher, but the staff messed that up. This is a winter haven park for seniors. There is a long list of perks and activities in the winter months. Nice quiet park with pool, pool tables, nice laundry, gym and dance hall. Beware, if you come in on a weekend the gate is locked and no one answers the phone to tell you how to get into the park. Beware, we had the OK from the office to have our RXs sent to the park, but they forgot to tell the office that handles the mail. So they sent our RXs back. It took us three days to find some one in the office to check in. I'm sure this is a busy place in the winter. We camped at Encore Sunshine RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
