Check-in was a breeze. The lady in the front office was very nice, and told us everything we needed to know about the resort.
The one thing I absolutely love about Tropical Trails(if I had to pick one) is that the spaces between sites are some of the largest I've seen. It's so refreshing not to be right on top of your neighbor, even if they are super nice(which ours were).
Some of the other benefits that I thought were noteworthy:
High Speed Internet(ethernet from the pedestal) was very fast(over 100mbit). No issues with multiple 4k stream, and/or Zoom/Teams calls. It's been an absolute joy to carry out my daily work without any network disruption.
Cleanliness of the park is incredible, staff is more than welcoming and ready to address any needs.
Gated access with PIN code entry is a plus, even though the area seems very nice, and somewhat remote.
They provide you with a newer(and clean) picnic table and a nice covered fireplace(and wood!).
If I had to find something negative to say it'd be that I wish there was more grass and less dirt between the sites.
That said, it's a pretty new park, and I am sure they're working on that. Also, this is TX, not MN. I bet it's harder to get grass to grow due to lack of precip.
They have planted a lot of palm(and other) trees, but they're still growing so there isn't much shade at the moment.
There are train tracks on the north end of the resort, and we were very close(as close as you can be) to them. Train seems to roll through at about 1030pm every night, but you honestly don't even notice after the first night.
We kept extending our stay by a few days here, a few days there as we didn't want to leave, but alas, people are finding this place, and we weren't able to keep our spot any longer.
We're heading to FL very soon, but we'll definitely be back to Brownsville and we won't even consider another RV resort.
Great new RV resort close to everything, easy access, and Fiber optic internet.
We really enjoy the large heated pool. Our dog enjoys his walks to the dog park.
It's a short drive to the beach and SpaceX is close, we just watched the latest test flight.
A big plus is a space between lots here, your neighbors are not 5 ft away like the island parks, here it is more like 50 feet.
Our lot has room for our truck and a picnic table.
We learned how to play Pickle Ball- what a hoot and good cardio also.
Plenty going on to stay busy-we took a dolphin watching trip and saw plenty of them.
Next up is fishing from the pier,
Every Friday afternoon they have a jam session. Coffee and doughnuts every Saturday. Breakfast every other Monday. Water way with canoes. Game room with pool table. Laundry facilities on site. Large recreational hall. Owners are a joy to work with.
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.
