We have been thinking about going to south Texas after Christmas as well. Never been. Southern Florida is about the same distance for us but we would like to see Texas. By the way this will be our first "big" trip in our MH. (newly retired again, and new to RVing). We are wondering if the campgrounds are mostly full in southern Texas this time of year? Also, would it be better to wait until after New Years in terms of traffic? We don't necessarily have to be on the coast. Just some warm weather and friendly campgrounds is the ticket for us. I will be watching your thread for more information. Good luck.

Cannot rely on those reviews. Most of them way outdated.

South Texas

Try Paradise South R. V. Resort in Mercedes, Texas, 956 565 2044. I don't know if Sherry is still in charge or not but they really treated us great. We have stayed there on three occasions and enjoyed it each time.

S. Texas campgrounds

We are staying in Llano Grande RV resort in Mercedes for our 8th year, a couple of miles southof the big east west highway, quiet, very nice, 5 pools, hot tubs, lots of things to do in park, close to Mexico if you want to cross over, we have no problems, bring your passport, friendly, clean, gated, imho the best in the valley.

Stayed here 4 years Home - Victoria Palms little higher in price than most but it is nice. Report from friends say lots of spaces available. Tried AZ for 2 years liked that also. In Florida this winter finding it crowded and pricey and if the bugs get any worse I will pick up and head west.

For the best bang for your buck, probably here at the Americana. They offer an introductory rate of $139 a week for any available site, and they have many to choose from. Small older park, some sites only have 30 amp, new sites on the south fence have 50. Very friendly manager and maintenance guy, as are most residents.

Of the four we visited, the Bensten Grove across the street looks better, but the reviews on RVParkReview doesn't paint a good image. Mind you we only drove through, didn't talk to anybody.

Headed for Corpus/Rockport area to look around tommorrow, anybody have any recommendations there for a week?
