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. We camped at Green Gate Grove (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Green Gate Grove (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.
