We stayed here for a few nights while visiting South Padre Island. Our spot backed up to a channel and was very enjoyable.

Things I liked:

Many long-termers here and everyone followed the rules of the park so it is peaceful. They have an off-leash dog park. There is a shower area. There are docks to fish from. The park is gated, and the pool looked very nice. (We didn't use it during our stay). The shower facilities were nice. There was loose hair around, but I have seen a lot worse.

Things I didn't like:

There was low water pressure during the day. The wifi was so slow that it wasn't useable, and there wasn't a picnic table or fire ring at the sites.

We would stay here again! We camped at Park Center in a Travel Trailer.

Angela Riley-Blanchard, manager at Park Center responded to this review

Thank you for staying with us and reviewing our park! I'm sorry about the water but I do see the the city of Port Isabel was doing some maintenance that could have affected the water pressure. Wifi continues to be an issue in our salty atmosphere and have contracted with a new company to hopefully rectify this problem by the fall. We do have premium sites available with picnic tables. We do not, however, allow fire rings as we are considered a desert climate and a very windy one at that! Again thank you for staying with us and we hope to have you back again!

It is $300+ a month and higher for premium An old place where too many campers are crammed in, an example of what some settle for as many return each year taking advantage of cheap prices. This was our first time here, it was the only place we could get for a month, and while all the staff are very cordial and do their best, the RVpark leaves much to be desired. Parking so close to the adjacent space on grass & dirt. no place to sit other than squeezed alongside your rig. Lots of permanents too . There are some premium newer sites across a channel, but those were booked and so we had to take what we could get to stay in the area. Terrible mud and grime gets on all connecting hoses from the rains. There are good things, most people are friendly, a pool and hot tub, water aerobic classes, which are crowded I heard there was yoga but never could figure out where it was held. There are activities from in the rec hall, but these are all bring your own plates, utensils, etc. We skipped that as always crowded too so missed out on the "fun" It is gated so that is some security and a deposit is collected for the remote to open one gate. One walking gate is kept open all day long.. Internal roads are very narrow and rough and when it rained our row was along a minor creek because the water did not drain. . Too many people there and walking becomes a chore dodging automobiles and golf carts. There is an extra charge for cable which does not work well so we canceled.Wifi is awful unless one goes to the rec hall. Electricity is extra and had we stayed the month would have been about$100. The laundromat is dumpy, rusted machines from salt air, inadequate for the population and several machines do not work but take money from unsuspecting. The park is not responsible for the refunds nor do they post out of order signs. Several of these longtimers park any which way and their vehicles in front of rigs make it difficult to navigate around them. We camped at Park Center in a Motorhome.

Angela Riley-Blanchard, manager at Park Center responded to this review

Thank your for staying with us and reviewing our park! Park Center has been around since the 70's when RV's didn't come with slide outs and weren't made to live in full time. So yes, we initially started out as a small park with small sites. Over the years we have wrapped around the channel making sites much deeper. The rains, the dirt, the flooding are all products of our environment and things we cannot control. Even the Island will flood to the center of your car door in heavy rains. With 425 sites packed on 30 acres, it can feel crowded to some but to others it feels homey. I'm sorry you didn't take the opportunity to enjoy our activities because the relationships built here are really why people come back year after year.

A Winter Texan park. Close to everything around the South Padre Island/ Brownsville area. Large park with a very active social calendar, you won't be bored! All in all, a fun place to spend the Winter with a lot of nice people. We camped at Park Center in a Motorhome.

Convenient access to the island for good surf fishing and charters. Showers/restrooms got updated this year, no longer have to feed quarters into a box but still remind you of a 1960's truckstop. Site I was put on had a trailer burn down, there was no grass left to step into. Had to keep moving when BBQ'ing to keep the fire ants off. Cockroaches the size of a baby's hand. As far as cleanliness and anemities, the worst park I have ever stayed at. We camped at Park Center in a Motorhome.

Get out and enjoy the fishing and many water fun things going on. Try El Boun Pescador for the best mexican food in town at a reasonable price. Enjoy the beach on the island. The more time you spend out of the park, the more you will enjoy your stay.

The price is based on the monthly rate and includes cable tv. Our site backed up to the channel. Imagine looking out your window every morning and watching pelicans, cormorants, herons & egrets catching fish for their breakfast. It was great. There is always something going on in the large clubhouse, and if you're a fisherman you'll love this place. There are a lot of permanent and long term residents here, but they were friendly and invited us to join in the activities. The sites are long enough for a big motorhome and wide enough to park the car next to it. The laundry was clean and large and reasonably priced. Minor complaints: The sites are grass, so we had to remember to wipe our feet when we entered our motorhome; it would be nice if they provided a table and a fire ring at the site; and the roads are narrow, but we managed in our 36' motorhome. If we're ever in this area again, we will definitely stay here. We camped at Park Center in a Motorhome.

The campsites are close together, but it is in a very convenient area to South Padre Island. The wi-fi internet worked wonderfully (quite fast, and I never got bumped), and I can't say that about too many parks. The electrical power and water worked perfectly, too. The "Winter Texans" were very nice and friendly in this park. The park was a bit shabby looking, so I would not want to spend months here, but at $24 a night for 3 nights, this was a bargain. This is a very dog friendly park which is nice. It had some grass, and I was welcome to walk wherever I wanted with my dog as long as I cleaned up after him. I would stay here again. We camped at Park Center in a Motorhome.

Although older and somewhat crowded, We like this park because we are right on the river looking at shrimp boats. Overflow sites are gravel and grass, 30 amp, water, very friendly staff. For a short interesting stay it is adequate. We would stay here again. We camped at Park Center in a Motorhome.
