A true 'Resort', well-spaced lots super well maintained!

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.

  • Firepit provided by the Resort
  • Ample space between sites
  • Large level pads, great patio and vehicle parking
