We had never been to the Rio Grande Valley before and reserved only the month of December at this park since we had reservations elsewhere for January. By the end of December we wanted to stay longer, but were committed to our other reservation. We were members of Thousand Trails and took advantage of their reduced rates. Our December monthly rate was approximately $444 plus about $44 for electric. We chose this park because it had the largest swimming pool of all Encore RV parks in the RGV. December, 2013 was unusually cold in the RGV and we did not have as many opportunities to enjoy the pool as we had hoped. Everyone at the park was very friendly and encouraged us to participate in the activities at the park. We attended the Christmas Day dinner and the New Year’s Eve dinner and dance. The food was quite good, but it was the friendliness of the other residents that made it memorable. At the New Year’s Eve dinner someone told us we would wish we had stayed at this park instead of moving. They were right. We camped here in a Motorhome.
