Texas Trails RV Resort Overview:

Review & Rating of Texas Trails RV Resort in Pharr, Texas

Texas Trails RV Resort is huge with over 900 sites that are a mixture of RV rental sites, permanent park models and mobile home sites, rental trailers, park models, and mobile homes.   This RV resort is a popular winter Texan destination because of the variety of sites for rent or sale, a location that's close to McAllen and the upper Rio Grande Valley, and the warm moderate temperatures in the winter. Texas Trails is part of the Wilder RV Resorts Corporation that owns 10 RV resorts in Florida and 8 RV resorts in the Rio Grande Valley. 

The roads are all paved and wide enough for big rigs to maneauver.  The vast majority of the sites are back-in, paved, and level.  All of the sites are side by side, big enough for a 45 foot RV, and the water, electricity, and sewer hook-ups are at the back end of the site and may require extensions.  There are a scattering of trees and landscaping. 

The staff, residents, and winter Texans are friendly and outgooing.

Texas Outside Campground Rating System

Texas Outside uses a tough rating scale and it’s difficult for a campground to get a “10”.  Each park is rated on:

  • Scenic Beauty: a campground that is flat with no trees or character gets a “1” and hills, lots of trees, beautiful lake site, and lush ground cover gets a “10”
  • Park Condition:  the cleaner, well kept, and maintained campgrounds receive high scores
  • Amenities: we are looking for lots of amenities like restrooms, dump stations, playgrounds, boat ramps, shelters, concession stand, rental toys, and more.
  • Campsites:  low scores are given for sites that are right next to each other (good for getting to know your neighbors, but not what we’re looking for when we’re camping); have no lantern holder, no water or electricity, no fire pit, no grill, or no picnic table (or it’s rotten wood); have no trees and no view; the ground cover is crushed rock (my bare feet hate that stuff!); and they require a lot of work to get your rig level.
  • Things To Do: Bonus points are given for campgrounds that offer lots of fun things to do at the park or very nearby – this includes: biking, hiking, climbing, boating, entertainment, golf, swimming, fishing, volleyball, horseshoes, and more
