South Padre Island area CG

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to stay around the South Padre Island area this winter. I do not want to stay on the island itself. I do not need a full fledged resort. Just a nice, clean, quite park with full hook-ups, wifi, pool and a hot tub. If you prefer to PM me a place as you do not want post up a great spot that is a hidden gem please do so. Thanks for the suggestions.

Wow, 143 views and no posts.....

That may be due to the fact that the only places to stay at S Padre Is. are on the island. The next town would be Port Isabel and from there you go up the Pecos river into Brownsville and up into the valley. I suggest that you check our Port Isabel and Brownsville on RV Park Reviews.

We are staying at a nice RV park not too far from South Padres Island in Los Fresnos. It's Palmdale RV Resort. www.southpadrervresort.com It's a little more expensive than some of the other parks in the area but the sites are big and spacious and not packed in where you can hardly put your slides or awning out. They have a nice, warm pool and hot tub. Lots of activities, water aerobics 5 days a week, pot lucks, etc. Pretty good WiFi too.

 

They do have discounts on longer term stays. Right now they are re-paving all the park roads. We are staying until the end of February. The location seems to be pretty good for going to South Padres, Brownsville and Harlingen. They are all not very far away.

 

Hope this helps. Good luck with your search and Happy Holidays!

We also stay at Palmdale RV Resort in Los Fresnos. It's about 20 miles west of S. Padre Island. We will arrive the 29th of December and stay for 3 months. Owner, local management and residents are great people. Lot rents are very reasonable. Give Nora a call and book a site. Look us up when you get there. We should be in site 96.

Where did you end up staying ? i frequent the area and this time of year the county park on SPI is a hit or miss for a spot..

I went to the island. There were several spots open. We were not to exited about staying on the island. The KOA was much nicer but for 2-3 times the rate it better be.....

We looked at several places and were not really impressed for one reason or another. We just landed in Mission, TX at Green Gate Grove. We are very happy with the new location. This place is well kept with lots to do.

 

Thanks for all of the input and ideas.

The park you found in Mission looks very nice and a good price range for rentals - $400-$500/month. Those are big lots compared to others. Enjoy your stay!

Thanks, we got it for $350 plus electric. The lot is huge and it has a shed on it with a washer/dryer, fridge, shower, sink, toilet and fridge in it.
