Older. Most sites perpendicular to park roads, but with care you can back in. Concrete pad for chairs, etc. lots of birders. Close to good birding sites. Some planned activities and outings. I had site 67. I needed to borrow their huge wrench to get the sewer inlet cap off! THEN as soon as I inserted my hose and opened my black waste valve the line completely backed up and overflowed you-know-what all over the back end of my site!!! Needless to say we could not dump at that site or anywhere else at the park without considerable inconvenience. I was not a happy camper when we left. It's not a bad park. They try hard and they do a lot well. - Tom Seeley

Rate is based on monthly fee. We spent a month here to visit and explore the Rio Grande Valley area of Texas. Older park in need of some updating. Nice small pool and hot tub. Nice clubhouse with a few activities. Nothing special. We had a FHU 50 amp site right next to the road with lots of road noise. All sites are back in. Our site had a concrete patio, not all sites have this. We also had a grapefruit tree on our site. Free wi-fi at clubhouse only. If you want it at your site, you have to pay extra. Heard it wasn't a very good signal. People staying at park and employees were nice. We would not stay here again. - krb

Our review of this park from last year is still valid. This year we returned for two weeks. The park was full during our visit, with many people there for the winter. The park is older but well maintained. The managers are very helpful and the occupants were uniformly friendly. There are two water systems in the park (municipal and private well), and customers are welcome to use all the well water they want for RV and car washing, which was good in the middle of a long journey. The park is 3 miles from Bentsen State Park and the World Birding Center. We'd stay again. - Jay Rutherford

This was our 5th year. Our rate reflects the 3 month rate. BUT, it includes electricity and cable TV and this year a new cable TV system with cable modems for Internet. The dog run is excellent. The staff will go out of their way to help you. The same for the work campers. This park has just about every activity you could desire. We understand that their will be a change in the activity office next season, which will be good for the younger Winter Texans. We met one person that has been coming to this park for 33 years. That is great, but it is time for management to look into activities for the younger set. We envision returning each winter for a number of years. - johnwadams

This is a very large, gated, ($6.00) park on both sides of Bentsen Palm Dr. Office is on the left side. Park is mostly park models or permanent RV's. We did not know until arrival that they only accept cash or check. It is a very friendly community and seemed accepting of new arrivals. Lots are decently separated with grass which needed mowed when we got to our site. After a few days ask a neighbor how often they mowed only to find out we were responsible for our yard. You can borrow mower from maint. Water pressure was adequate. Laundry on west side was nice. Wash $1.50 and Dryers were .25 for 7 mins. Cable was grainy and we used our antenna most of the time. WIFI was very sporadic. They say they are putting in new underground cable/wifi. Orange trees everywhere. If we were to stay any longer we would have looked elsewhere. - Pennylee

This was our fifth stay at Bentsen Grove because of the spacious level sites, good facilities, park amenities including an indoor pool, and lots of activities and shows. Since our last stay however, there is a big problem: The new free WiFi does not work. For an extended stay, we need WiFi and currently Bentsen Grove does not have usable WiFi. This is our home, if the WiFi is fixed, when visiting the Rio Grand Valley. - OldeJohn

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
Dec 2015 - $30.00
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
Nov 2012 - $20.00
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

We have stayed at Bentsen Palm Village RV Resort for two weeks. Rate is $600 per month. It is a huge park but the snowbirds are gone so we basically have the place to ourselves, very nice. Internet works great. Managers Don and Jeni are the best. Jeni even gives you her cell number! She is professional and very helpful.
Everything is kept in tip top shape and it is beautiful. We chose this park because it is near 5 of the 9 World Birding Centers in South Texas and within walking distance of the Bentsen WBC. - LottaTidbits
Mar 2016 - $24.00
It's obvious that at one point this was a premier RV Park, but has been allowed to become far less than what you pay for.
The laundry facilities are very poor quality and not nearly enough machines for a park of this size. The fitness equipment is poor quality and several of the machines don't work. There are far too few restrooms/showers and for the first 4 weeks of our 7 week stay there was no hot water in the larger of the 2 restroom/shower/laundry buildings. The water is completely undrinkable and left a nasty residue on everything it touched including our water lines, it took 2 weeks to get the nasty taste out of our water lines. We went through 3 water filters in 3 weeks before giving up and just using water for hand washing.
The sugar cane growers burned fields every few days leaving a soot residue on everything, not to mention the smoke. And surprisingly it is windy all the time........almost Wyoming windy!
It's not all bad though. The nearby Bentsen Palms bird sanctuary is a real treat but you can see it in a day. - JWFlyFisher
Dec 2015 - $24.00
The best aspect of this park is the guests, mostly active, young retirees, and the Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park bird sanctuary for hiking and biking. The park features a club house, craft room, wood shop and several palapas. The pool is heated well, and we enjoyed the hot tub. There are plenty of machines in the laundry, clean and reasonably priced. The park management also sponsors dinners, shows, and the favorite, Wednesday night margarita socials. Other activities included exercise, line dancing, cards and breakfasts. We also enjoyed the park-sponsored river cruise. There were many good restaurants in the area that we attended as a group. The site spacing is good, especially if you are in one of the "wheel hubs." We had a large patio with nice landscaping, including rose bushes. We were welcome to pick free citrus fruit from the trees behind our RV and could have utilized a garden plot if we were there longer. - StevieMac

This is an update to the my previous review. The rate for primitive tent camping is now $18 per night, plus the daily entrance fee of $5 per person. A $70 annual pass quickly pays for itself with camping discounts and the waived entry fees. There is a nearby porta-pottie but that's about it. - Jay Rutherford
Feb 2012 - $5.00
Bentsen-RGV State Park stopped allowing motor vehicles in the park 7 years ago, and the RV sites are returning to the earth. However, the 10 primitive tent sites are still available to hikers and bicycle travelers. The sites are very primitive and there are no restroom facilities other than a portable toilet. Note that we did not actually stay here, but wanted hikers and bikers to know that this camping facility still existed. The state park is easily walked or biked and contains a large variety of birds for those interested. I am not sure if there is any additional cost for these primitive sites beyond the $5 daily fee per person to enter the park. Although this review will say we stayed in a tent, we did not actually tent camp at this park. - Jay Rutherford

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
Nov 2015 - $10.00
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
Feb 2014 - $25.00
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

Danger! Danger! This park is not a good one for a large coach! There is a levee that you have to go over to get to the campground. It is a very steep incline and a large coach will drag. We were first placed on the grass but with all of the rain it was not a good idea! We were stuck after a day1 Then we were moved to a concrete pad where we did not have access to direct Tv due to trees. Today when we left we had a very difficult time getting over the levee. In the process we have damage to the rear side of our 44 foot coach! I would definitely not recommend this park to anyone that has a 40 foot or larger coach! The hosts were friendly and the amenities are great. The Border Patrol are there on the river 24/7. - oniedu
Jan 2015 - $14.00
Rate based on monthly stay, electric extra. Very clean washrooms, showers, close to shopping, smaller friendly park on the Rio Grande River. Lots of activities which included Sat. morning breakfasts and Thurs. potlucks which were very well attended. Border Patrol has a boat launch at this park so they were visible 24/7 so we felt very safe, helicopters overhead often but no more noise than being close to an airport. Wifi was on/off a lot but worked well most of the time. Concrete pads but grassy areas surrounding sites which were saturated from rain which made it quite messy from vehicles parking on/near the grass areas. Office is closed on weekends so if you're leaving the park either on Sat. or Sun. highly recommend you pay your electric bill on Friday, they pro-rate it which worked out fine. We would definitely stay here again. - Shirley Briand
Feb 2013 - $16.00
The location on the Rio Grande River is attractive and provides recreation (boat ramp and a covered fishing area with picnic tables). It also provides nearly constant presence of border patrol agents with boats, ATVs, SUVs and helicopters. It feels very safe but is sometimes noisy. The park is friendly and active with many social events, nice pool, library, and pool tables. AT&T phone service is good in most of the park but registers as out of the country near the river; data signal is weak. The utilities were mostly okay but unannounced water outages occurred twice during the month and the WiFi signal was weak and frequently absent. Interior roads are paved; sites vary from dirt to new and very narrow concrete pads. The office closes completely on weekends so check in and out can be a problem. The rate is monthly and does not include electric. - never settled
Mar 2010 - $30.00
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

We ran into this nice RV park unexpectedly. We had reservation in the next door RV park but when we arrived there a week ago, the gate was locked. Phone calls to that RV park were not answered. We drove into this park and they do have open lots for us to choose. Monthly rate at $250 is reasonable for the Mission area. We want to be close to the Bentson Palm State Park to watch bird so this RV park is only within two miles, a nice location. The restrooms and showers are clean. It is quiet here but not a lot of shady trees.
The rates do not include electricity which is metered and you pay whatever you use. It is a nice little park. I am glad we came here, the owner/manager next door was not as nice. - hotpepper
Nov 2015 - $20.00
Most lots nicely kept up. Lots privately owned and then some rented out. They were having problems with sewers when we were there last year. Owners were having to dig up holding tanks and the in the public bathroom you were asked not to flush paper. Some people were friendly but others very snobbish. Did not have as many activities as other parks in the area. Had to go to the Y for activities like pickle ball. Would not go back. - loveretirement
Jan 2012 - $13.00
Clean. Green Gate is a 24 hour gated park that is professionally run from check in to check out. This is a great choice for the Mission Valley Area. The people were very friendly and helpful. The sites are concrete, level and most have at least one fruit tree and several palm trees. Clubhouse is very nice with a small computer room with a large library (several thousand books). The only suggestion I would have is to get a site which does not back up to Bentsen Palm Dr. This is a heavily used road at all hours. We rented from a private owner at $400.00 a month(see Green Gates website) for 3 months in a 40' MH. Note: electric is charged at 16 cents a KWH. We averages approx. $120.00 a month extra in electric costs. - illini777
Feb 2010 - $14.00
This is probably one of the nicest parks in the Rio Grande Valley. The lots are all privately owned but many people own more than one lot and rent them out or rent out their lot while they are away. The office maintains a list of lots available for rent and it is also on the website. You have to contact the lot owner directly to rent a lot. The daily rate I listed is for a monthly stay and most owners prefer to rent for long term stays. The park is nicely landscaped with many Palm Trees, Citrus Trees, shrubs and flowers. The lots are large with plenty of room for big rigs. The park is a mix of RV sites, park models, mobile homes and homes. The park is fenced and gated with a key card required for entry. There is security on duty at night. The swimming pool and hot tub is kept clean and warm. The recreation hall has numerous activities 7 days a week during the winter months. The office and maintenance staff are friendly and helpful and everything is well kept. All lots have full hookups and cement patios. The park is located far enough from the expressway so that there is no road noise. This is an over 55 park so one person must be over 55, children are not permitted except to visit for not more than 30 days a year. This park is only 3 miles from the World Birding Center. There is easy access to many miles of paved biking trails and is close to many shopping, dining & entertainment opportunities. There are also numerous medical facilities close by. This is a great park with very friendly people, we will definitely be back. - pawatt

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
Jan 2016 - $10.00
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

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

Stay under C2C. OK place but clearly pool maintenance isn't high on their list. Mostly long-term stays. - PugetSound
Jan 2007 - $22.00
A very nice park. There are large grassy sites, lots of trees and paved streets. The pool is on the small side, but very clean with a small hot tub. There is a large rec hall and a few activities every week. Friendly helpful staff. The park is at the end of town so nothing is very close, but there is a grocery not too far away. - fulltimerjan
Feb 2015 - $18.00
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
Jan 2015 - $20.00
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
Dec 2013 - $20.00
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

Just came back from staying at Oleander Acres RV Resort. A staff member checked us in. She was very welcoming and gave us a tour of available sites for us to pick from. We decided on lot 95. This RV Resort has lots diverse mature trees so most lots are nicely shaded. Sites are grassy which is nice and sure cuts down on the dirt in RV. It was a great location super close to Walgreens which was convenient to pick up our prescriptions. We made it our base camp. It was very quiet. - slowlanesultan
Oct 2012 - $30.00
We loved our stay. Very reasonable price. Nice size sites that are very shady. On site sparkling clean laundry. Clean bathrooms and showers. Not to far from Walmart and all other shopping. A+ if you don't need a pool. They offer everything including rec hall, fenced dog run and pool room. - roadtrip queen

This park is outstanding for nature with lots of trees and native flora. I added some more birds to my list here. You feel at home as soon as you enter the park. The staff go out of their way to assure a pleasant stay. This a great park for Winter Texans. I made a lots of great friends I have also stayed in the summer. Park has lots of shade and is convenient to pharmacies and shopping. - Big Camper11

Came for 1 week, stayed for 3. This is a destination resort with many mobile homes and Winter Texan RVers, but we were welcomed like nowhere else. Majority of residents are french-speaking, but everyone gets along wonderfully. Our lot was level, large and concrete, and the whole resort is well-kept and well managed. There are activities and get-togethers for all tastes, though I would say that pétanque is the most popular. The surrounding area is definitely different for someone accustomed to Florida, but all services are available nearby and there are many interesting day trips possible, including to Mexico. - Voyageurs

We stayed here for a week and really enjoyed ourselves. The park is beautifully landscaped and well-maintained. Our site was a large, level back-in with excellent 50-amp power and clean concrete patio. There were plenty of activities to participate in... and lots of people participating. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone! - bcbounders

We stayed here as part of our tour of Retama Village. Our site was a very long, level back in with excellent utilities. This is a beautiful, well run property. They have lots with rv pads and homes with covered rv storage for sale here, in a park-like setting. The residents were very friendly and there are all kinds of activities that you can take part in, if you wish. The clubhouse/recreation center has a gym, pool and kitchens. - ronboett

As an ownership park you will have different experiences depending on the specific owner you are dealing with. Each lot is an RV super site with "coach house" (12x20) finished at various levels (from storage to equivalent of an efficiency apartment). The amenities for the village are the same for all (clubhouse, pools, exercise room, billiards, space for organic garden, citrus trees, wood shop, etc.). A great place to stay in the Rio Grande Valley. - Hoby
Mar 2011 - $1.00
Rate is promotional free stay rate for FHU back-in. Sites are wide and level concrete with a small coach house. Many sites are rented to Winter Texans by the owners of the lots. Has a very nice clubhouse and pool area. Lot owners and renters made us feel like we belonged and included us in their activities. Near the World Birding Center as well as the World Butterfly Center. Sales presentation/tour was very low key with no pressure whatsoever. Has 55 plus age restriction. - Big Moose
Feb 2016 - $40.00
This park had the friendliest and best service we have seen in any park on our lengthy trip. We arrived a day early, no problem. Brought us to our site and stayed until we were fully backed in and had no issues.
The site was very large, level, and nice. We did have and electrical problem that we thought was the camper but a neighbor was and electrical work on helped identify it was a supply box issue. The maintenence was there in less than 5 minutes and fixed the breaker.
This park has a lot of owner sites but it didn't feel like it. We were welcomed, waved to, and invited everywhere by great people, a true camping community.
The only issue again was a lack of working wifi which was disappointing.
We would recommend this campground and definitely stay again. - John Borajkiewicz
Jan 2015 - $33.00
The rate in this review is based on a weekly rate. If you are looking for a park for the winter months in the Mission area, this is the one. The staff and all residents are VERY friendly and make you feel at home. Lots of activities to partake in if you want. Great pool and spa. We would highly recommend for winter Texans. Large spacious sites. A nice quiet park away from highways and rail. Golf right next door. - gypsy parrotheads
Mar 2010 - $17.00
This park has some of the largest sites in the area. The people were nice and check-in was easy. Electricity was 19 cents a KW. The pool and hot tub were clean and nice. The water temperature was perfect. The have a billiards hall with three tables and some exercise equipment. There was a brand new shuffleboard court with 4-5 lanes. The grass burrs are still there. - Traveller101
Oct 2012 - $34.00
This is a really nice park. Even though it's not prime season yet, they already had the activities calendar up for the winter snowbird season, and they have more activities scheduled than just about any other park we've stayed in. There is a gigantic clubhouse, a social hall and a new palapal, all with planned events. The place was neat as a pin, including the pool and bathrooms, and we were greeted by very friendly staff. We're going to try to come back here to spend at least part of the winter this year. - bcbounders

This is a large Snowbird Park with many Quebecers. The Snowbirds and the staff were friendly. There are a ton of activities, a very nice swimming pool and roads in the park that are very rideable on bicycles. The surrounding area is uninspiring!! The highway is under construction but did not affect our stay. Our rate was the PA rate for five days and then it was $170 for a week. The park is fine but I have no burning desire to return to this part of Texas. We had cold windy weather pretty much the whole time we were there. - Rib

The rate is the normal daily rate. We used passport for seven days and saved on the weekly rate. The park is a mixture of park models and RVs like most in the valley. Some streets have more RVs and others have more park models. It could use a bit of work on maintaining the landscape, but it's clean for it's age. The best part of it is the friendly staff and the Winter Texans are very cordial making for a good stay. It's butted up against two other parks that look just like it. If you are going to stay a month or more, they have a lot of activities in the clubhouse from ice cream socials to live entertainment and jam sessions. - tbax46

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

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
