OK for a night. We enjoyed the pool. Building was old, but the water was great! Little shade in the area where we were. Unable to get a phone signal at our site. Very quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New park management this year has changed the atmosphere of the park. The rates have been raised and additional fees are being charged. Thrash was allowed to overflow the dumpsters on several occasions. The office hours are Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm and management isn't normally available on weekends. After 3 years I won't be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate is based on a monthly stay. This is my second year returning to this park and the friendly people here are the draw. There are lots of activities including: great fishing in Falcon Lake, cards, swimming pool, pool, shuffleboard, bingo, jam sessions and carry-ins to mention a few. The park is older and thus the sites aren't as big as they could be, but there is still plenty of room to deploy slides and the sites are level. Rates will rise next year, but prices haven't been posted yet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Huge place - lots of sites devoted to permanent park models and trailers. Situated on the water, inlet and canal on the edges of the immense Falcon Reservoir. We were escorted to our site on the back fringes of the park - the majority of the sites are on one level, the RV’s (transient) spots seem to be on the edges one story down (15’ - 20’) - perhaps it was a second thought, something to do with all that extra space. Some of the RV sites were parallel to the road - the 15’ - 20’ bluff on one side, the road on the other (I believe those were considered the pull-thru’s). Unless you really hug the bluff on one side, your deployed slide might hang over the park interior road. Fortunately there was very little traffic, but it was still a bit unnerving. Nightly rate ($15) surprisingly inexpensive for free WiFi & extensive cable (50+ channels). Very helpful owner loaned us a cable TV splitter for the evening. We were parked in a very quiet area of a very quiet park. We only stayed one night, but in our short stay we saw 3 boat docks and lots of friendly people. Loads of park activities, socials, pot luck dinners, interdenominational services every Sunday and so forth. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park has been on a down-hill slide for the last 8 years. I understand that it has new owners but unfortunately the management didn’t change. The place has received only the maintenance necessary to keep the park open at a minimal level. The restrooms are as bad as you will ever encounter in a place that calls itself a resort. No maintenance seems to get done in the summer in preparation for the busy season which is from late fall to early spring. It appears that the grass doesn’t get cut during the summer and Sandburs reach knee-high before they finally get cut in the fall. This ensures that your RV carpers will be full of Sandburs for your entire stay. Management has dropped the recreation director position and all activities are being continued by the current residence. Management has stated that they could care less if there are activities or not and will invite you to leave if you complain or don’t like the way things are done or not done. They should take the Welcome out of their web site (Welcome to Lakefront Lodge). I hope the new owners wake up and get new managers who will really manage the park and bring it back up to the standard it once had. Until then, thank twice about what you are willing to put up with before you go there. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We were going to stay a month, but left early, but not because of being disappointed with this place, which we were. We picked this location over the others because we wanted a swimming pool, and it was not usable. They ended up closing it during out stay, and we were not offered a credit. The entire park was behind on maintenance and landscaping, the bathrooms were in serious need of cleaning, and the laundry room was dirty and messy. It was off-season and VERY hot. So, it appeared that the sun and heat affected the pool's chlorine. They could not keep it clean, so they had to drain it. The lake was also well under level. We could walk several hundred feet on the lake floor due to a nearby dike being closed off and not letting water down river. Aside from that, there were some full-time residents who were very friendly and helpful. The rest of the park was fairly empty. Their Winter Texans were up North. This was a stop over en-route in to Mexico, and if we would have known it's condition, we would have picked another place. We only stayed for 2 weeks and paid for the month. We would not return here unless they come under new ownership or management and clean the place up. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price reflects monthly rate. Reception friendly but not too knowledgeable about the openings available when we arrived. We had called for reservations but they really don't take reservations. Sites are all dirt and not level. Park is full of various kinds of living quarters -old park models, old trailers,old single wides new rigs. Some lots are privately owned and many of those are a conglomeration of trailer, addition, covers, side buildings, etc., etc. It is very cobbled together. Maintenance is negligible. The laundry was clean but the building housing it is old and not well kept. There are some scheduled activities. The real activity here is fishing. The town of Zapata is a poor, dirt filled place. There is not much to do in the way of tourist activities. All in all, we would not return here for any reason. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here while exploring the Rio Grande Valley and Southern Texas. The park is located on a peninsula that sticks into Falcon Lake and offers many sites with really nice views. The sites are large, level, and have full hookups. There's a boat launch right in the park, allowing easy access to boating/fishing. We saw lots of happy fishermen showing off some of the largest bass we've ever seen. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place has very little going for it and when it rains, it's even worse. But for $10 for full hookups, what can you expect. Be careful where you step because dogs are allowed to roam freely. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The view was a quarter mile walk but that counted for us! The Passport rate was fantastic and we stayed three nights. The bike riding was great to the river front communities. Owners were friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One of those places we pulled in to because it was on the way, it was cheap, and it was in the Passport America book. When you pull into a place that charges only $16 a night, you pretty much get what you pay for. Hook-ups, but no amenities to speak of. They apparently had some fairly nice long-term sites down the hill and around the corner from where we were, but our site was just a patch of gravel and a tiny bit of grass. We tried to rinse the unbelievable road grime off the windshield of our tow car, and the owner was immediately at our site as some other "resident" had reported us. It seems you have to pay $2.00 to wash your car, and there's no differentiation between rinsing off your windshield and washing your whole rig. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This Park is located just east of Zapata on Hwy 83. It is a winter Texan park with about ten easy in/easy out pull-through sites on the opposite side of the park. The $20 price is for the Pull Through Sites. Nice clubhouse and laundry facilities. Nice country setting, but the traffic noise from Hwy 83 is noticeable. We stayed here for one night.
