Great rv park. Many Winter Texans with a lot of activities. We found the RV sites large compared to many others in the valley. Park on grass but has long concert pad. Full hook ups with free cable. Free wi-fi but only at large main hall - has 2 other buildings for activities too. Price reflects 5 month stay. We camped at Tropic Winds RV Resort (55+ Park) in a Travel Trailer.

Overall a good park. Office staff is pleasant and helpful. Many activities, although it seems the permanent tenants tend to be cliquish. Good roads, well-placed utilities, reasonably sized sites, but no picnic tables. Only complaint was the man who runs the big riding mower ... he was rude and inconsiderate as he mowed what really didn't need mowed as a wash/wax vendor worked on our rig. He acted quite inconvenienced by the water hoses, buckets and brushes and simply ran his machine within inches of those workers and me. I attempted to get his attention, but he wouldn't even make eye contact. We camped at Tropic Winds RV Resort (55+ Park) in a Motorhome.

A huge Encore park designed for long term stays with park models and many activities and facilities, e.g. heated pool, shuffleboard, bocce courts, horseshoe pits, and RC car race track. A remodeled laundry room is very nice. It also has cable TV and full hookups with good utilities. However, the office is not open on weekends, which is inconvenient for short time stays, the Wi-Fi is not free except in the main hall, the interior roads are narrow, and RVs are normally parked on unpaved ground, which means if there is, or has been rain, the RV has to be parked on the paved patio area, leaving no patio area for sitting out. Sites are adequate but not roomy. Considering all the parks available in the valley, we will look for another park in the future. We camped at Tropic Winds RV Resort (55+ Park) in a Motorhome.

Larger than average sites, especially for a park as big as this. Friendly staff and lots of activities. This is an age restricted park and so is not kid friendly; although, they said they will make exceptions for short stays. The park is well organized with good roads. There are many permanent residents but they were very welcoming, too. We stayed as part of Thousand Trails program but had to pay a reasonable $3 per night resort fee. We enjoyed the stay and would return if we were in the area. We camped at Tropic Winds RV Resort (55+ Park) in a Motorhome.

Pretty typical Encore park. Sites are small for a large motorhome. Ours is 45' and our mirrors were in the street. No place to park a towed. No hot water in the showers, lukewarm at best. Jacuzzi is way too small for 535 sites, but it was warm. Pool is heated. Extra charge for 50amp service. Extra charge for internet. Lots of speeding by golf carts, driving side by side, cutting corners etc. Be careful if you have an end unit. Lots of noise from the International airport a mere 2 miles away. With all the camping available in this area, there are many parks that offer more. We wouldn't return. We camped at Tropic Winds RV Resort (55+ Park) in a Motorhome.

Good place to hang out for a while. Mostly Winter Texans here for several months, but about 40 sites are designated for Thousand Trails members. This was our third time here. Tuesday night's hamburgers are very good! We camped at Tropic Winds RV Resort (55+ Park) in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this park several times in the past 10 years, using our Thousand Trail Membership. Park is primarily used by Winter Texans and permanent residents. Sites are spacious with a mixture of grass and dirt to park on and a concrete patio slab. Interior roads are in good conditions, but I should note that when it rains the parking sites get very muddy. On several occasions when it rained, we noticed that RVs had to be pulled out of the mud. Laundry is super small considering the size of the park. There are lots of organized activities for senior citizens, but please consider this park unfriendly to children for obvious reasons. We have enjoyed all our stays, primarily because of the price and location, but will probably consider another Encore Park in the future. Rate reflects a Thousand Trails discount. We camped at Tropic Winds RV Resort (55+ Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate reflects the monthly rate of $479. Wi-Fi is extra using TengoNet which we didn't subscribe to. The Park is very quiet despite being located close to the Valley International Airport. The sites are wide and there are lots of activities including Pickle Ball which is not mentioned on their website. We found the people to be very friendly. The park is conveniently located to all shopping and many attractions. The washrooms are used by those using the pool as well as the outdoor activities and are in serious need of updating. I used the toilets only while playing pickle ball and the pool and would not want to use them to shower. The Entertainment Director brought in a number of entertainers which were good and one that was very good and all tickets are very reasonably priced. The only negative with staying here is the winds which blow pretty much every day; some days the winds are light but we found them to be quite strong most days. We compared the winds here with Mission TX where we stayed for December and when the winds were really blowing Harlingen was at least 5 mph stronger. We loved this RV park and would most likely stay here despite the winds! We camped at Tropic Winds RV Resort (55+ Park) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 2-1/2 months for the winter. The park is very nice, with lots of activities. Site was gravel with a full length concrete patio. Water pressure and voltage was good. It has the widest sites of all the parks we noticed and from talking to different people that have been coming to the valley for years. Plenty of shopping within 5-6 miles but away from the bustling crowd. The rate reflects the monthly rate including the electric we had to pay.

My husband and I are contractors working in south Texas and chose this RV park based on previous reviews. And I'm glad we did. It's a great place. Although pretty vacant in the summer, you can tell this is a hoppin' place in the wintertime. The sites are good size, there is a nice laundry facility (a/c, tv, etc.), a large rec room with pool tables and a few exercise machines. There is a nice outdoor pool also. There are very limited shady spots (2) and we were fortunate enough to get one. The manager was very helpful. We camped at Tropic Winds RV Resort (55+ Park) in a Motorhome.

We stayed for 2 weeks; most are here for the season. There is a wide variety of planned activities that we were involved in. There is an activities director on site. Sites are spacious, adequate hook-ups (location and ease of hooking up). Everything is clean and well maintained. If we come back to this area, we would probably stay at this park compared to others we have seen around here. We camped at Tropic Winds RV Resort (55+ Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

We don't often give a 10, but this park is about a 9 and 3/4's. The only draw back is a small laundry, but didn't cause us any problems. We always got a washer & dryer. The staff was very friendly. The rate is with Thousand Trails, with a $3. park fee use per night. A great area to walk the dogs, and a big fenced in area to rum the dogs. It was fum to watch the many jack rabbits. The site are large, flat with a 8 x 30 cement patio. There were many many activities. We would stay here again. We camped at Tropic Winds RV Resort (55+ Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Larger sites than most. Swimming pool is clean and heated, warm enough for water aerobics at 8:00 am. This appears to be a well managed park with friendly staff and residents. Power and water are good, Tengonet is offered and great when working, was down once while we were here but was unusually windy at that time. Rate reflects Thousand Trails member rate.
