The first day we got to this park we were ready to leave. The so called superintendent was rude and watched for the littlest infraction. My husband got permission to look at the park for a spot he liked and when we were setting up this guy came over to me and started telling me we should not have driven around the park and we were to go to a different spot which was totally ugly. The washrooms were terrible and my husband would not use them. The showers were bad, too. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
$410 per month was for a full hookup site. Electricity was an additional 14¢ per kWh on top of that. The nightly rate for our extended stay including electricity worked out to $18 per night. Sites are level grass with concrete sidewalk and pad for chairs/table. The park does have palm trees, but they wouldn’t provide much shade in the summertime, as well as many bush-type and flowering plants. The park is right next to downtown Brownsville so every convenience, amusement, and sightseeing activity is available within a short drive. If you like walking/biking there are many miles of paved trails in town. Fishing/boating is available on the Gulf. Spacing between the sites allows for slides and awnings to be deployed, but that’s it. The park has many “winter Texans” who are very friendly. There are many activities scheduled in this 55+ park: dancing, bingo, exercise class, bands, and the like. City water is chlorinated: safe but not tasty. We received excellent AT&T and Verizon LTE reception. Wi-Fi and cable TV are included in the rate. We received 42 OTA TV stations. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived at Pauls Rv Park in late August of 2006 for an extended stay of 6 plus months. Our stay lasted 7 months. The park is a mix of full time park models/mobile homes and rv'ers. The permanent residents are wonderful. They were there to invite us to all the functions, which are numerous. We had a wonderful stay there with all the parties, dances, exercises, crafts, golf scrambles, bingo, cards etc.. The draw backs are that some sites are very difficult to enter and exit. The sewer system needs complete repair as the sewer scent is obvious and obnoxious. The park has undergone change in management a couple of times the past few years. The advertised free wi-fi was down more than up. It was still the same when we left in April. If you can live with the downfalls this is a fun park. You will be tired after an extended stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park has all the amenities required, but the sites are small and tightly packed. There is new management and charge extra where ever they can. ie wi-fi / premium sites, . . very few regular sites Weekend activities in the clubhouse are at extra charges and are designed around drinking. Not really a family park, even though it is advertised as such there are about 25 permanent residents in the park We camped here in a Motorhome.
