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

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 park was closed to RV camping and vehicle traffic about 3 years ago to create a more quiet environment for the World Birding Center. There are some primitive tent campsites. However the RV camping has been moved to Bentsen Palm Village RV Park. (I had to fudge the number of campsites and overall rating because the form will not allow 0 and none as valid answers). It is a wonderful park for birding, hiking and biking but not for RV camping. - RamblinFever

The park is awesome. The management is stellar and they provide very active landscaping, pest control and overall level of care in the park. Everyone is made to feel welcome, there are many weekly activities, beyond the bird watching that attracts so many to this area. The park was absolutely full when we arrived and has many return visitors who have been coming here for more than 5 years. Lots of folks from the midwest and Canada, but also many Texans who, like us were looking to escape cold weather in north TX. I would have given the park an unconditional "10" except for the wifi service which is not on a level of service with the rest of the park. We stayed in Site 822, a back-in, with plenty of room to visit or stay private. We will definitely return. - 5er_MKS

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

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

Park almost empty, so plenty of great sites. Terrible sand burrs. Loved the fruit trees - we could pick from at our site. Terrible managers and crazy rules that they blamed on corporate. Nice place for a short stay if you are okay in heavy traffic at Mission. - LindaBuckley

This a destination park for the winter. Rate $330 a month, plus electric, water,sewer, and garbage. WiFi is free. - Joceil

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

This is no longer a 55+ resort. It is mostly occupied by local families and people who are in the area working. It has deteriorated since we were there. - livingonthelake

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

I called about a reservation and a friendly voice answered the phone and helped with all my questions. I pulled into the park saw a huge cactus garden with cactus taller than some trees. Staff from the office showed me to my lot. The site was shady and it was easy to get in to. I had to do laundry when I arrived. The laundromat was clean and well kept. As were the bathrooms and showers. It was an all around pleasant stay. Can't wait to get back here and camp here again. Loved this place - Mark Wittenburg

The only positive comment I can say about this park is that the people were very friendly. The management at that time was charging the club members 1/2 of the electricity used by the rec hall and 100 percent usage for the pool room. The electric rate when we stayed there was 18 per kwh. Where I stay now is less than 5 cent per kwh. Streets were not maintained well. In fact, my wife and I saw several smashed rats on the streets. The park does have an excellent jam session on Tuesdays. The woman who do the cooking/baking for the park are excellent cooks. We actually stayed there for 5 months back in 2014/15. Found a much better park for $500.00 per year less and the above-mentioned KWH rate. Don't really remember the actual coast per night. - WEH

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

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
Feb 2016 - $26.00
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 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
Jan 2010 - $30.00
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
