We spent part of three winters in TX at Port Isabel and Rockport. Except for the wind enjoyed it. In general the people really appreciate the "Winter Texan" visitors a lot.
We ended up in spending winters in AZ though. I would try both places and see which one you prefer. Or change every year or two.

We were in Quartslite Az in July (hot as He**). The pop is usually 1200 year round people but beginning in late Sept. it starts growing to 250,000 by Jan. The amenities are too much to list but there is a park for every desire. I don't know who to call but we stayed at camp 88 (bad memory). The people couldn't do enough for us.

IMHO, don't make any long term (monthly) reservations for this year. Move around (it has wheels) and see what YOU like. Many have given their park places and I have a few also. None of ours may fit you. Give many a try and make some reservations for next year if you don't want to see it all.

Apparently your talking about a different " Quartszite". The one I know doesn't have much to do other than the giant RV show, and the RV parks were just parking places, not like a nice RV Resort...

Thank you for the referral. I will check it out. By the way I used to drive Semi's out of SF back in the early 80's. I drove for Mid-West Coast transport. I drove for a guy there. Riddle trucking. I loved SF. Are they even still in Business?

As a Quartzsite snowbird,(of 9 years ) the parks in Q has little amenities. No park in Q has a pool. To get the amenities, travel to Brenda to Desert Gold rv park or Black Rock rv resort. Both have heated pools, clubhouse, jam sessions, bingo,cards mini golf at Desert Gold. We stay a little south and west of Q in Rainbow acres. Not an rv park, no amenities but a beautiful neighborhood for your TT,5er,park model, stick built or MH.
The population of Q during the summer is about 3,000.
You probably tayed at 88 Shades on the main street. Big shopping is done in Blythe Calif, Yuma and Parker. A few head to Phoenix(135miles) east.Parker has one casino-Blue water, Yuma has I think 3 of them. All nice. If you are looking for high end amenities, Q is not the place. There are alot of folks with ATV's, you can leave some of the parks and head into the desert to ride. We like the area as we are gold prospectors and belong to the local and very large metal detecting club. Coin hunt once a month and desert outings also. Your first year, you probably should try a few different areas and find the ones YOU like best! You know what amenities you will like the best. Prices in Q are about 250-350 per month. Over in Brenda the 2 parks mentioned are a bit more. They all have deals if you do your research.. hopefully this helps. Dona
