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

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
Jan 2012 - $20.00
We stayed here for 2 months in 2011-12. Tip O Texas has nice amenities and a friendly staff. What they don't tell you before you pay the NON REFUNDABLE rent is that the Pharr Events Center is about 20 feet from the park boundary. Events there go on till midnight (sometimes later) and the noise and reverberation will make your rig shake! The headaches last even longer. Staff claims to be "working on it", but the events center website shows no changes in the schedule. There are plenty of other nice places in the Rio Grand Valley that are quiet. Rate does not include electricity. Wi-Fi is available free at the clubhouse, otherwise for a fee from a 3rd party. We will not return to this park. - swco40

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

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

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

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 great RV Park. Last year, we made the mistake of booking at a different park in the area after looking at their Internet site that did not have a lot of pictures but what lot of big talk that turned out to be bogus. We then looked all over and found Mission Bell and booked for this year. What a difference. Everything Mission Bell gives you everything they advertise on their website. All their photos are true. They have a great pool hall and my wife loves the salt water pools that are heated. The exercise room is nice and the bathrooms are spotless and cleaned daily. The staff is so nice and helpful. They have so many activities you can't do them all. The place is lit up for Christmas. We are looking forward to the free Christmas dinner because the free Thanksgiving dinner was great. We have met so many nice and friendly people that do lots of different things. The big woodworking shop is popular and so are the golfing groups because there are many golf courses that are close by. I highly recommend this park. Forgot to mention how close it is to everything so you don't have to drive but 5 minutes to get to many restaurants, Walmart, big grocery store and Home Depot. - crackerjack

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
