We stayed here a month in April 2019. We originally were going to stay two weeks, but we extended due to the great birding in the area. It was off-season and the park was very quiet. Many times, it felt like we had to place to ourselves. We are not 55+, but according to the office staff they are an 80/20 park so up to 20% of occupants can be less than 55. They do, however, restrict people with kids. Doesn’t hurt to call and ask if you are interested in staying. The park has many amenities, including, mail room, pool, spa, showers, laundry, pickle ball courts, horseshoe courts, and shuffleboard courts. Many of the occupants are full-time residents or winter-only with permanent structures, but they had numerous sites available for short-time stays. Our site was nice and level and we had full hook-up. The staff was very nice and accommodated our last-minute stay and our change to a monthly visit. This was a great spot for us because we were close to many good birding spots. Estero Llano, South Padre Island, Santa Ana, Hugh Ramsey Park, and Laguna Atascosa NWR are within an hour drive. The park is also close to grocery and other stores. Nearby is everything you need. As I said, the park was quiet, but there is a train nearby that would come through in the early morning sometimes which was annoying. The park was well maintained, but there were some potholes that need to be fixed. They were doing some sewer pipe construction when we were there, so hopefully some of those roads will be patched. The price for a month stay plus electricity was reasonable. It was starting to get a bit warm while we were there, but they do have a nice breeze most of the time, so mosquitoes were not an issue. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will stay here again.

I really enjoyed my stay at this campsite with my family. We actually came here on our Spring Break when we were in high school. We decided to come here because it wasn't a very long drive from home, and we knew there was some good hiking nearby. Located in Pharr Texas, the park is surrounded my beautiful citrus groves. You literally feel like you are in a desert oasis. Our favorite part is that it is located very close to the Rio Grande Valley. There are so many great attractions and places to do outdoor activities. If you want to head to the water you can drive an hour away and hit the Gulf of Mexico. We did this the second day we stayed here and it was so much fun, i would highly recommend doing this!! My mom and I also went shopping nearby- there is a great mall and shopping area close. The RV park was good. Water and electrical hookups, and enough room between sites which we like. Clean restrooms and area.
Interesting park. Used to be a full RV campground but has limited camping to hike-in primitive only. Bathrooms are about .3 miles away. Busy season is November-February when birds are easy to spot and winter Texans are in. Fun place to hike and check out what is in the bird blinds.
