53 Parks near Palmview, Texas
Mar 2013 - $8.00
We stayed for the winter and enjoyed the park. The front part of the park is for RV's and they have 30 and 50 amp service with gravel for the RV and a concrete patio area for your awning and vehicle. There is a Winter-Texan room for activities. Security was excellent. The hosts are on site full time, and there is a gate and security cameras. They have a wonderful camp dog named Tucker. Many of the Winter Texans are involved in a variety of ministry work both in South Texas and Mexico. - Traveller101

The name of the park has changed to Melody Lane Christian Renewal Center at Texas Rose. The front portion of the property is for RV's and the back portion has Park Model units available for rent. This is a secure park with a front gate that is closed at night and controlled by a key pad. Winter Texans fill up most of the front portion of the park. Winter Texans also have their own recreation room. The park is quiet and there are only a small number of planned activities. Many of the guests are involved with mission work within the city and some travel to Mexico. The people are great and there are some rules that go along with a Christian park. The 4-6 month rates are some of the lowest in the Mission area. If you have a desire to serve the Lord, this makes a great home base. - Traveller101

This is a gated park that issues a card key for entry after dark. Very quiet and peaceful. This park is separated into 2 parts, the front part is regular camping while the back 2/3 of the park is part of the Melody Lane Christian Renewal Center where Missionaries and their families stay while helping the Mission. - osofine

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
Jan 2007 - $25.00
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

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
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

Clean, pleasant, friendly RV park located in safe neighborhood. Rate is for the month. Paved streets, with grass and dirt lots with concrete patios. Stable electric, good water pressure, fast and stable WiFi. Super clean restrooms and showers with plenty of hot water. Clean laundry facilities. Plenty of weekly activities, shuffle board, bocce ball, potlucks, dances, quilting, crafts, billiards, bicycle rides, etc. Vegetable vendor comes to park weekly. Managers always available and friendly. Highly recommend for month or for the whole season. - TTraveler

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
Nov 2012 - $45.00
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
Dec 2015 - $16.00
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 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
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

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
Mar 2012 - $30.00
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

This was our sixth stay at Bentsen Grove because of the spacious level sites, good facilities, park amenities including an indoor pool, and lots of activities and shows. Although some of the facilities are showing their age, the parks is clean and neat. The Wi-Fi problem is solved by installing a modem system (odd by it works satisfactorily). We will stay again. - OldeJohn
Dec 2015 - $18.00
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
Nov 2015 - $30.00
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
