Hosts are awesome. Very noisy and crowded. Very clean facilities and super clean swimming pool. The sewer hookup does not have a trap therfore no water to keep stench down. Smelled so bad I could not leave drain pipe connected while I stayed.
Overpriced for what they offer. Small concrete pad that's not even aligned with the RV door. The hook ups are on the right side when the electric cable and tanks' valve is on the left so the sewer hose ended up underneath the RV. $40/night… Stayed 3 nights… waste if money.
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,
If you are near the border and are looking for a great place for your furry companion, Lakewood RV Resort is a great stop. It's near South Padre Island, and the border. If you're looking for a location where you can stay and experience nice amenities though, this is great for that as well.
Don't expect rustic or run down locations here. Full RV hookups, pools, billiards, and outdoor activities for all ages, but especially seniors. I can't recommend this place enough!
If you're looking for a spot to be a Winter Texan, this should be in the top of your list. With over 300 RV spots. Near South Padre Island, but nestled in the town of Harlingen, you're able to immediately see the back life, but also be in "regular, non-touristy" towns.
This camp is filled with any amenities you're looking for in a camp site. It's worth your visit!
We spent a week at Chimney Rock in life January. As expected the weather was great. Played golf at nearby courses. Most of the people there are Winter Texans are 55+. Very friendly. Lots of fun activities. Border patrol post on the property. Very safe. No cable and cell service spotty.
