Stayed here a few times in the past. Used to be in pretty good condition, but not now. Water pipes break, hot tubs under repair, laundry closed. Supposed to have free wifi but it is not worth it. Volunteers run the activities but there are a lot of conflicts within the "activity management". Park management has changed often. Area manager steps in but usually makes thing worse. We camped at Tropic Star RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is tired looking, and although there are plenty of activities (run by very friendly volunteers), the owners have not seen fit to invest any money into it since we came here 7 years ago. The RV lots are in poor condition, the roads uneven, and the "Free WiFi" very unreliable. We went to a park meeting and the attendees were very hostile to the regional manager. After talking to some of the attendees I understood why. The regional manager had a bad attitude and talked down to the residents. The washrooms although clean are dark and in dire need of upgrading. Park security is not good, we heard of several bicycle thefts while we were there, and saw stray dogs running through the park on a couple of occasions. We camped at Tropic Star RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We were disappointed with the general condition of the park. It seems the owners have no desire to improve the park. The Wi-Fi throughout the park was an additional monthly charge and was terrible. Many folks gave up and canceled the service. To be fair, Wi-Fi was available in the building. Cable TV is not offered, I did ask when booking, was told they had cable. I guess the office was not informed of the cable being removed. Having checked different RV parks in the area there are better choices. Would not have stayed 3 months but paid upon arrival. They have a no refund policy. We camped at Tropic Star RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The last post pretty well covers it. We stayed as Winter Texans for three months and paid the three month rate with electric extra. Be advised the third party internet has very limited coverage due to the large number of trees that block or interrupt the signal. There is also a free nine-hole golf course on the property. Pets are restricted to a specific area. We camped at Tropic Star RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a large RV and MH resort park. There are many permanent residents. Most sites are back in of a reasonable size. Full hookups plus cable were available. Wi-Fi is provided by 3rd party, so costs are incurred. Very large pool with 2 hot tubs area. There are numerous activities in the winter season. The facilities include a Large activity and entertainment complex. Staff were friendly. Bring a bike or golf cart with you to get around. It is close to McAllen shopping, restaurants and medical facilities. Security was good. We camped at Tropic Star RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The people who winter in this campground are without a doubt the friendliest around. The campground and the resident volunteers provide more activities than any other campground we have experienced. No reason to be bored here. The sites are a little tight, especially the ones with trees. The cable TV leaves a little to be desired. But overall we would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped at Tropic Star RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very friendly and convenient campground with lots of official and unofficial activities (block parties for instance). The management provides many amenities not usually provided such as a bus for group transportation (free), free golf on the properties course, tennis balls for the organized events, BBQ grills for group activies and many more. There are shaded and open sites all with full hook-ups even for the largest rig. Being near McAllen, there are plenty of outside activites and good shopping. Wifi does however cost. Having stayed at several valley campgrounds, we found this one to be a cut above. We camped at Tropic Star RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
