Feb 2017 - $33.00
Rate is for the 2017-2018 season. Daily rate includes electricity, water and sewer. Large lots with lots of shade. Residents are very friendly and helpful. We originally reserved for two weeks and stayed for six weeks. That situation has been repeated by many of the residents. Wi-fi is only available in the clubhouse and lounge and is is pretty bad on a good day. - Esenjay

Older Park, very dusty, small pool. Nice people, not a lot to do. A small park so not a lot of activity participation. Very close to the bird sanctuary, which has nice bike paths and is very peaceful. - yippi4

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

This is our first stay at a 55 plus park. LOVE IT!! This park has a mix of houses, RV's and park models. Every spot is owned by a person, so you need to own or rent from the owner. Water pressure is good, but it tastes a little funny. Only 2 bars from Verizon. OTA Tv is good as we get all the major networks. Nice pool, hot tub, bathrooms and clubhouse. It is clean and is well maintained. Lots of activities to do here. My only complaint,is that the wifi SUCKS st the clubhouse. I would stay here again with out hesitation. - rynosback

Green Gate Grove is a beautiful park, well groomed with permanent brick homes, park models and Rv lots. All lots are very big. People are very friendly and welcoming, a lot of activities. On the downside, there is no dog park or area to walk dogs, pet owners do not respect other peoples lots and they let their dogs deposit their waste in others yards or let them go in the roads. Owners keep lots and home beautifully maintained with a palm tree on each lot and beautiful flowers. - CeCe

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

Mix of park models and RV spots. two sections each side of Bentsen Palm Drive. We were West side, lot W13. Very very social, residents very outgoing and will invite you everywhere and give lots of great information. Park has literally dozens of activities, anything you can imagine. I am an introvert, but loved the library and the women's 'bitch and wine' event which happens monthly. My husband loved wood carving and stained glass classes. Weather was decent, warm by day and cool at night through all of January, lots of sunshine. Come February and it was very humid....like 95% humidity each day! I don't care for the AC running constantly. So didn't bother me when it was time to go. Add in the fact that there are NO real natural attractions (other than the Birding Center, which was great) and one month seemed like plenty for a first visit. NOTE: visit HEB for groceries, amazing. The Rio Grande Valley has a low cost of living, prepare to be pleased at affordability! - GeorgiePorgie

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

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

This park is located just outside the gate to Bentsen Rio Grande SP. Do not confuse this Bentsen Palm VILLAGE RV Resort with the older RV Park down the road a couple of miles. Bentsen Palm VILLAGE RV Resort is truly a high-end resort park. Many, many activities in a maticulously manicured environment. Dog agility park. Free kayaks. Pontoon boat rides (need advance reservations). You can even wash your rv on arrival and departure. Free WiFi and many other amenities. - SunStar203
Feb 2017 - $30.00
Stayed two months in a 42' 5th wheel and cost includes electric usage at $0.13/kwh. Very nice people worked here and really enjoyed the kayaking trips on the Rio Grande. Nice concrete pull-thru sites on a spoke and hub system was a welcome departure from straight lines. Nice hedges between neighbors for additional privacy. The major issues with this park had to do mostly with older infrastructure and dated looking facilities. The main clubhouse is way too small for the park and had no air conditioning. The fitness room had equipment that broke, the trash bins were overflowing several times and we had power outages from the heat and client demands. The pool area was way too small for the size of the park so didn't even use. WiFi was good initially but deteriorated severely in the 2nd month. Poor cable TV package also. Based on all of this, don't feel the need to go back. - DIXIEDUALLY2013

We have spent two months here and this is by far the nicest park in the area. The rate is for a month, plus metered electric. The location next to the Rio Grande Valley State park and the bike trails were a real plus. The park has nice landscaping and all drives and sites are concrete or asphalt, with plenty of space between sites. There are many activities. They have a well equipped craft room and a very well equipped wood shop. We found the water to be very hard and we used a softener. There are two laundry which we found to be nice. The workers were very nice upon check-in and they show you to the site. The restrooms and the club house were clean. I didn't find the negatives that others have written about. Don't confuse this park with a park with a similar name farther north. Because the park was about full, we have reserved for two months next winter. Overall I have found this to be a top rated park. - iboat2

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

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

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

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

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

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
Jan 2008 - $22.00
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 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

This is a 55+ park with all of the sites owned by owners. So you rent from the owner. Electric is in addition. Cable TV and wired internet are offered at a reasonable rate. The grass and landscaping are taken care of. Trash is picked up twice a week, each site has a large tote. Each site has a coach house, many have kitchens and full bathrooms in them. We stayed for 4 months and really enjoyed it, you become part of the community. - houseonwheels

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
