55 RV Parks near McAllen, Texas
Feb 2014 - $35.00
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

Lots of open and available sites. Sites are large enough with plenty of room behind, but are paved and dirty. Not dog friendly. You can only walk dogs in between & behind rigs in pet only area, which isn't very large. We were told we could transport our 2 very small dogs to outside the gate to walk, but there is no sidewalk and only dried up weeds/grass. The people facilities are very nice with a large indoor pool and rec hall. Dog policy is snobbish, so would not stay here again. - puppylover

The sites are wide and deep enough to allow parking a vehicle in front of the RV. Sewer connections are at the back of the lot, so you may need an extension to your hose. The site Wi-Fi internet is quite expensive, but free internet is available in the clubhouse area. Most sites are open for satellite and the Verizon 4G data signal was excellent. This was our second stay here to visit friends and we would stay here again. - Ned

This was to be my fourth year at this Park. I say 'was' because we left after meeting the new management and quickly realizing that some people should never be placed in positions of authority. The new management has forced us to carry our dog over a street (no dogs allowed on streets) in order to access the doggy area; they then told us to 'weed our area'. Hey, I rent this spot and do not own it! The straw was when an argument ensued over my parking in a handicap spot for more than 2 hours, while I was inside enjoying the pool, etc. Hey, I have a sticker and there are no signs with time limits! Don't matter: if the managers say jump, they expect a jump! I decided to move away. Found another park five minutes away in Edinburg and enjoyed a winter away from idiots! Will I return, only after an apology (like that will happen) or the managers move on. Right now the park is at its lowest population in years and people are divided. Sad! I am retired and don't need the BS. - rayside

We stayed here one night, however - we are planning to return and here's why. We called to make reservations for one night. Told the manager we'd be coming in late and he gave us his cell number to call when we arrived. We did pull in a bit later than we had planned due to bad traffic accidents in the SA area that blocked/slowed traffic to a crawl in areas. The manager came out after he had gone to bed. He took us to our spaces, we rented 2 spaces. He made sure all of our services were hooked up and that we had everything we needed, before he returned home. The next day, he came by and waved. We left late in the day, and the managers were wonderful, absolutely wonderful. We are planning to return this year, as the managers made us feel welcomed and they were very friendly and helpful. Totally recommend this park as it was clean, well cared for. - Stan_Kay

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

We tried to get into another park because we knew several people already there, stopped at this park and never gave the other one another thought. This park has 2 very clean and well kept beautiful pools. Two shower areas and are clean and well kept. there are so many activities you can't participate in all them. The staff and people are all so friendly that any one can fit right in. I read the review of the convention center being so close and loud noise. That problem has been solved by the city of Pharr. - David Ochs

Here for 3 months. Approximately 70 activities including a fantastic woodshop, 2 swimming pools. Many tours available on the resort's free bus. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. Free Wi-Fi works well. Large camp spots. Many dances, shows flea markets, etc.
There was noise from the events center only a few nights. - Bobby T

This park has a very good variety of activities and all of the people are super nice and willing to show you around and/or teach you how to do anything. I have traveled throughout the US and this is the CLEANEST place I have been in. The housekeeping crew is A+. Management is always looking for ways to make your stay better.
The park has flowers and trees everywhere you look. The 2 pools and 2 spas are always clean and ready for you to enjoy the warm water.
Lot spacing was spacious with some shade. Site surface was asphalt. - hoptoitwithus

This is one of the older parks in the valley and its location, right at the intersection of 218 and 83, makes it a tad noisy. But it also has a lot going for it. It has all the usual facilities and this weekend they added Wi-Fi in the library. Unfortunately, it kept kicking out every couple of hours, but one of our neighbors was able to reset it. The owner and manager couldn't be friendlier and its hard to beat the Passport rate of $15. Because of its central location, it's very handy if you want to dine out or go shopping. We've stayed here before and will certainly return. - Johnnyonthespot

The rate is for one of the largest lots for three months. This is a 55+ park which we are. Everyone is very friendly. There are many activities. The park is very well kept and has easy access. If in this area next winter we will stay here again. - daverich

We stayed in this 'retirement village', with our family of 9, including 7 kids for 2 nights. The manager was very kind and allowed us in to a park that is not geared toward families, but if you're traveling near here- might be worth a call- since not many of the local RV parks will allow children. If you qualify for their age group, it's an easy choice for a clean older park. The fiberglass pool furniture is in good shape, but may be valuable as collectibles today- they're cool. And the pool? It's great! At least 85 degrees, sparkling clean. We'd come back again if we were allowed to. We were charmed by the authentic, unintentional retro feel. - bestestes

The rate goes down dramatically if you stay longer. Our rate worked out to about $200 per month plus $40/mo electric. Also used about $40 per month propane which is delivered to site twice a week. Very friendly and informative staff, especially the manager. . Very clean and tidy park. Good laundry facilities at $1 per load. Access is easy and location is excellent, near to library and HEB grocery within walking distance. Sites were level but very narrow. This would be our big criticism as we felt our neighbors were too close. However, this is normal for RV parks in Rio Grande Valley. Lots of activities in park for seniors (park geared to age 55+) but we did not join in too much and that was fine. No pressure to do so. WiFi was iffy. Water pressure fine. Good book exchange. We would stay here again. - rvbravo2

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 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

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

Mission Bell and Tradewinds are now sister parks owned by the same company. This is by far the friendliest and most out going park I have known in Valley. Everyone is so positive. The activities are endless like dances, live entertainment, dinner parties, If you get bored it's your fault - Marilyn-Tom

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
