Texas Lakeside RV Resort is an oasis near the small, somewhat nondescript Texas coastal town of Port Lavaca. The resort has wide paved entryways, leading to large, easily manuervable concrete roads that supply every site throughout the park.
All sites have large concrete pads that can accommodate even very large rigs. The utility stands are on a small attached concrete pad alongside the main pads. All utility connections are modern, up to date, and convenient to hook up to. The parking pads are level and are wide enough to leave a little walkway alongside your unit. There are nice grassy lawns between the sites that show pride in maintenance. Sewer connections are at a low enough level that gravity works for you insted of against you. Electrical service is modern 30/50 amp service that is metered at each site for long term guests. There is an adequate cable system (mostly analog) provided with hook up at the pedestal. The wifi service seems adequate. Wifi transmitters seem to be well placed for fairly uniform service throughout the park. High pressure water spigots suggest the use of a pressure regulator (user supplied) to prevent damage to your RV’s plumbing.
There is an outdoor pool and large hot tub. A nice comfortable activity room with attractive tables and comfortable chairs is adjacent to the main office. An exercise room with modern machines is off of the activity room. Large bath suites with toilets, showers and sinks are also off the activity room area.
A beautiful stocked lake (catch and release) sits in the center of the park, and has a concrete walking trail around it that is 1/3 of a mile around. Several benches are situated between the walkway and the lake. Palm trees are planted throughout the park and appear to be well manicured.
As of this writing a new area is being constructed that will accommodate dozens of more additional units situated alongside the outermost streets of the current park.
At least a significant number of the sites are occupied by factory workers in the Port Lavaca area. There are several factories that hire large numbers of workers. In spite of this, the resort policies restrict the types of rigs allowed. Currently, all units in the park appear well maintained and fairly new. There are no unsightly or littered sites that we can see.
Activities for snowbirds are almost nonexistent. Management states that they have tried to plan some activities without much participation. Clearly, hiring an activity director that has experience in managing activities would be a plus.
Texas Lakeside RV Resort is a beautiful park that is easy to live in. Security gates are in operation after 6:00 pm and through the night. We are enjoying life here. It’s a great base-camp for seeing the coastal Texas area.
