We stayed here for 2 months in 2011-12. Tip O Texas has nice amenities and a friendly staff. What they don't tell you before you pay the NON REFUNDABLE rent is that the Pharr Events Center is about 20 feet from the park boundary. Events there go on till midnight (sometimes later) and the noise and reverberation will make your rig shake! The headaches last even longer. Staff claims to be "working on it", but the events center website shows no changes in the schedule. There are plenty of other nice places in the Rio Grand Valley that are quiet. Rate does not include electricity. Wi-Fi is available free at the clubhouse, otherwise for a fee from a 3rd party. We will not return to this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful park. The landscaping around the outdoor pool area is beautiful. There is also an indoor pool. There are many things to do, including dancing, shuffleboard, ceramics, a sewing room, tennis courts, horseshoes, woodworking shop, a place to make stained glass, etc. There are always lots of activities going on. Their management people are very friendly and helpful. I was also impressed with how friendly everyone in the whole park was. After looking at parks all over the Rio Grande Valley last winter (2007), this was my absolute favorite. So that's where we'll be this winter!! We camped here in a Motorhome.

Clarification: The Nightly Rate is based on a month's stay. WiFi is at a cost from a service provider. Cable is available at a few sites at the perimeter of the park, next to a busy road. This park is WAY WAY past its prime. The grounds, buildings, etc., are in need of improvements in cleanliness, maintenance & upgrading. Of the 3 washroom/shower facilities, only one's cleanliness is passable. The park caters to regulars who return each year for the winter. Has lots and lots of park models, quite a few are 'run down.' Compared to other Wilder Resorts we've visited in the valley, one has to wonder why this one is so neglected. Maybe, this is why this park has so many vacancies while most other parks in the area have very few. The only good thing that I can say is that there are plenty of activities, especially if you are into dancing & crafts. If they had any flexibility on refunds for pre-paid periods, we would have been out of here weeks ago. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
