Tri-park In Pecos

Recommended Posts

What's the deal with Tri-Park in Pecos? No website comes up nor is the park on the park list in th SKP magazine. Has the park gone private and if so why and when? Last reviews were not good and not many options out that way.

The park has been removed from being promoted on the site apparently due to the negative reports of the conditions there. Hopefully the club management will come up with a plan to resolve the issues and bring the park up to acceptable standards.

While TRA Park is still part of the Rainbow Parks system, we discontinued promoting it alongside our other Rainbow Parks about a year ago. It is primarily occupied by long-term guests who work in the nearby oil fields. As such, it is less of a destination park than our other Rainbow Parks and may give members an inaccurate perception of our Rainbow Parks system. It has no activity center, clubhouse, ERPU, or deeded lots.

The member discount, policies and operation remain the same, and overnight guests are still welcome. TRA Park is still included in our discount park listings so that members are aware it is available, but we do not promote it as a Rainbow Park due to the reasons listed above.

Thank you for posting that as I was just about to go looking for it.  

We sometimes forget that the Escapee's organization is a business and was begun with invested money by Joe & Kay Peterson and they committed a great deal of time and money to the development beyond the simple newsletter that began in 1977. What has resulted is a combination of an RV club that is tied to a family business. TraPark happens to be in an area where all available RV properties are packed full of workers who are in some energy-related business and who follow those booms from location to location. While I have no idea how that property came to be purchased by the Escapee organization, I have stayed there several times over the years and it used to be a park that always had sites available because there is very little in the area to keep visitors for longer than a night or two. My guess is that today it contributes to the profitability of the overall organization with high return on investment. Even though the park doesn't fit well into the Rainbow Parks system, it probably makes good economic sense to keep it.
