We stayed in Texas Lakeside RV Resort for three weeks in a fifth wheel and do not plan to return. The park is clean and well kept but it is also about 75% occupied by permanent residents and most are construction workers. The morning work caravan begins at about 5 a.m. and is mostly diesel trucks so there is lots of early morning noise. The construction workers drive like they are on a raceway even though there is a 7 mph speed limit. The neighbors surrounding the park have lots of dogs so they are constantly barking at dogs owned by park residents which is very noisy. The park is surrounded on two sides by two busy and noisy streets. To make matter worse their is an EMT dispatch location on one side of the park so there are many sirens all through the day and night. The persons who manage the park are not friendly and when we did go to the office to ask a question the person at the desk acted like we were bothering her computer activity and would not look at us. The WIFI system was only available for at most 2 hours per day so it is basically non existent even though they claim it is strong. When we ask the park manager about the problem she indicated it is a cable company issue. Charges for power are also a ripoff. We were told the electric rate but no one mentioned the $5.00 per month meter charge and if a stay spans two months there are two $5.00 charges. The clubhouse is nice but no one uses the facility because the park managers do not promote activities. Many of the spaces are very difficult to get in because they are straight in off of a narrow street. The website also says there are many things to do in Port Lavaca when in fact there is nothing to do. Port Lavaca is mostly a slum town with lots of crime. There are also very few restaurants. The laundry is nice and the rest rooms are clean but those amenities are overshadowed by the other bad issues with the park. Needless to say we will never be back. However if all you are looking for is a nice laundry and a clean restroom this park (or should I say trailer park) is for you. We camped at Texas Lakeside RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Rally rate, but regular rate is to high for location. Very friendly staff. Park is 2 years old. Lots of trailer, campers, 5 th wheels and full time worker residents. No tables. Strong Wi-Fi and cable. We backed up to the pond which was nice. We camped at Texas Lakeside RV Resort in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
This area of the gulf coast is a fishing area, lots of construction workers and chemical plants...nice RV park..
Definitely a very nice, clean, new RV resort. The cleanest restrooms and showers I've seen anywhere. It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Very nice fitness center, kitchen, laundry, meeting room, park store, etc. Nice lake in the center with concrete walkway all the way around. Bath houses front and rear of park. And it has gates that close at 6pm. Yes, its nice. The only thing keeping me from giving it a 10 is something they can't do anything about and that's, location. It is bordered on two sides by very busy roads with considerable vehicle noise. And one of the roads has an EMS ambulance office located on it, so you get sirens at all hours of the day and night. If you want a peaceful, quiet, spot in the wilderness, this would not be for you. The other thing that would help this park would be for more landscaping in the form of maybe palm trees and flowers. It's a new park, so most of the trees and bushes are going to take a few years to grow. Don't look for shade because you're not going to find any. Would have been nice had they planted large trees between campers. It does have nice grassy areas between campers and plenty of space between neighbors. It has a lot of positives. I personally was very impressed with it and like it despite the road noise and the need for some more trees and shrubs. Love the large concrete pads and roads. I hate parks where you have to park your RV on grass or gravel. I would recommend it for anyone to give it a try. If it's not your cup of tea, fine. But you simply will not find a newer and cleaner park than this. We camped at Texas Lakeside RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice park, and would have given it a 10, except for lack of information when checking in. We were given our space number, and the lady at the desk pointed to the right with her finger. We were not given any park layout, and didn't know we needed a security number, to get back into the park after (we guess) around 5:00 PM. It was confusing as to what to do with trash. After driving 300 miles, it is so nice to get clear instructions at the registration desk. Even nicer, in a class A park like this one, is to use that Golf Cart we saw parked at the door, to guide you to your site. Places to eat are very limited. We highly recommend Main Street Grill.

This is a brand new park, very pristine and well thought-out layout. The clubhouse is second to none. The pool and recreation area are sparkling and the owner/managers were extremely helpful. We didn't fish in the lake, but it was handy. Best kept secret in South Texas. We camped at Texas Lakeside RV Resort in a Motorhome.

It is new and easy to get to but for my 45 ft MH it was not level front to back..like many new parks they put too much slope to get the water to run off the pad. If I went fully level my tires in the front would be off the ground. Other than that a nice park. We camped at Texas Lakeside RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a new park in Port Lavaca. The sites and streets are all concrete with very good spacing between sites. The park is very clean, quiet and the sites surround a very beautiful lake. This park is first class all the way. Only thing that would make it better would be if you could pull nose first, into the sites around the lake (of course only with a motorhome), so you had a view of the lake out your front windshield. We would definitely come back. We camped at Texas Lakeside RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a brand new RV park with all sites situated around a small lake. The roads are paved and the sites are concrete pads surrounded by grass. Utility connections are excellent; Wi-Fi was lightening fast and there is a plethora of cable channels. The club room is enormous and is absolutely the nicest I have ever seen. The pool (unheated) and hot tub areas are very attractive. There is propane available, a nice laundry room too. The owner is pleasant and is working hard to make this park a great place. Downside would be that the trees and shrubs are in their infancy and it will take nature some time for things to grow. We camped at Texas Lakeside RV Resort in a Motorhome.
