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! We camped at Bentsen Palm RV Park (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The circle sites are bigger, but we enjoyed being backed up to the dog park/cattle ranch. Very Texas!

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. We camped at Bentsen Palm RV Park (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Bentsen Palm RV Park (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

This is an adequate place to stay while in the Rio Grande Valley. It is a smaller, older RV and Mobile Home park that is cheaper than a lot of the parks in this area. The rate I quote is for a week. It is a few miles north of Interstate 83 and so is more quiet than other parks nearer the highway. The park is occupied primarily by "winter Texans" who come here for the whole winter season. There are many park models and older trailers permanently parked, most fairly well maintained. The lots are quite small and close to one another, but separated from each other by citrus trees. Our site had a small concrete patio and no landscaping other than sparse grass. You are likely to have little privacy from your neighbor. This is a senior citizen park with activities geared accordingly, and children are only allowed to visit, not stay permanently. Although we didn't share too many interests with our fellow campers, everyone was welcoming and friendly. There is a 30lb. limit on pet size. The park has Wi-Fi (mostly a low, but adequate signal), but there is an extra charge for it. Although this is not the greatest park we have ever stayed at, it was perfectly fine and the $125 a week rate was to our liking. It made a good base for exploring the Rio Grande Valley. We would stay here again. We camped at Bentsen Palm RV Park (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for eleven day visiting friends who were Winter Texans. The majority of the sites are park models for Winter Texans but there are ample temporary sites. The sites are in an old orange grove with lots of nice grass. You are allowed to wash vehicles using the water from an onsite well. Everyone was very friendly. We camped at Bentsen Palm RV Park (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.
