Texan RV Ranch is mostly construction workers and people who live there full time. Many of the sites have a large accumulation of junk which make the park unattractive and difficult to maintain. I have stayed there for several years and have seen a gradual decline in this facility which can be attributed to the full time or nearly full time occupants with their "deer lease" type campers. The park also allows dangerous breeds of dogs and during our last visit we noticed a Doberman Pincher. Early mornings are also very noisy because the construction workers leave for their jobs beginning at about 5:30 am. Nighttime access to the restrooms is nearly impossible because the construction workers are all taking showers. I would not recommend Texan RV Ranch and do not plan to stay there again.

We stayed at Beacon 44 RV Park in Port O'Connor, Texas for two months beginning in late December 2012, and it was a very enjoyable experience. The park owners routinely interact with their guests and go the extra mile to make everyone feel welcome. The guests at Beacon 44 are part of a warm atmosphere and are frequently involved with park activities. Toward the end of our stay the women became involved with sewing and made many attractive items. Many of the men enjoyed great fishing and were frequently accompanied by a park owner. Great food is another routine experience at the park and the owners provided barbecue and other very good selections. All of the facilities at Beacon 44 are clean and well maintained. The camp spaces are also large so everyone has some private space. I plan to stay at Beacon 44 again next winter and would recommend this park to anyone who enjoys visiting and a warm friendly atmosphere.

We stayed at the Beacon 44 RV Park in Port O'Connor, Texas for the first time last winter and it was a very good experience. The entire facility is very clean and the restrooms are immaculate. The campsites are large and some are concrete so everyone is not jammed together like they are in larger parks. The clubhouse is also very clean and something is always going on there. Social gatherings occur nearly every night and the owners often sponsor an event for everyone to enjoy. During our stay they cooked a large brisket for everyone and it was a very nice event. The owners also manage the park and they are among the nicest people we have ever met. One of the owners took us and others fishing on his personal boat to enjoy some of best Gulf Coast fishing I have ever experienced. The owners also own shrimp boat so plenty of fresh shrimp is available. In my opinion, Beacon 44 is the best RV park we have every stayed in and I would recommend it to everyone who enjoys nice people, a wonderful atmosphere, a spotless campground along with peace and quiet.

We stayed at the Lost Alaskan RV Park in Alpine, Texas last winter and it was a good experience. The facility and rest rooms were very clean the staff does an excellent job maintaining the facility. The people who work there are friendly and helpful and will accommodate the requests of their guests. Lost Alaskan is close to Alpine which is a very nice and clean town with many activities. The park is also located where it is an easy drive to the McDonald Observatory. I would recommend this park to anyone who wants to visit the Big Bend area.

We stayed at the Pioneer RV Resort in Port Aransas, Texas for the second time last winter and I would rate the park as mediocre at best. The sites are small and everyone is jammed together so there is little room to park a tow vehicle. They have an insufficient number of rest rooms but they were able to build a dog run instead of addressing the people problem. To make matters worse they had two of the restrooms closed for the entire winter season and the guests were told it was for remodeling but no construction activity was observed. The staff in the front office is also very unfriendly and act like they are doing the guests a favor by allowing them to stay in the park and take money. Customers are also often asked to move to another site for no apparent reason. When they do move the site they vacated is often empty for a long time. There is also inequity in the amount persons are charged because some are given special deals and others are not. The park also has a policy where they charge visitors ten dollars for a daily visitors pass. Considering the very expensive monthly fee this is outrageous. I would only recommend this park to those who enjoy poor customer service, close quarters and a park that smells like a sewer system.
