TEXAS RV PARKS AND WI-FI

GULF COAST RV RESORT IS JUST OFF INTERSTATE 10 IN BEAUMONT.  THEY HAVE FREE WIRELESS THAT WORKED PRETTY GOOD.  THIS IS A VERY CLEAN PARK, WITH EXCELLENT FACILITIES AND A NICE DAYS DRIVE FROM PORT ARANSAS OR NEW ORLEANS. THEY EVEN HAVE A FREE CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST.   I WILL BE STAYING THERE AGAIN.   (FEB 09)

HOUSTON EAST RV RESORT IS AT I-10, EXITS 797 0R 798 DEPENDING ON IF YOU ARE EAST BOUND OR WEST BOUND, AT BAYTOWN.  FOR YEARS IT WAS A KOA, BUT NOT ANY MORE.  THEY HAVE FREE WIRELESS, WHICH WORKED GREAT, PLUS THEY HAVE FREE CABLE.  I THINK IT WAS $33.00 FOR THE NIGHT.  (JAN 2011)

ISLA BLANCA PARK LOCATED AT THE BOTTOM OF SOUTH PADRE ISLAND HAS A SYSTEM THAT I HAD TO PAY ABOUT $30.00 FOR A MONTH.  IT WORKS PRETTY GOOD MOST OF THE TIME.  I THINK THEY HAVE 19 OR 20 REPEATERS SET UP.  IT IS A HUGE PARK WITH  OVER 600 SITES, LOCATED ON THE GULF OF MEXICO.  THEY HAVE A LOT OF SHOWERS AND WASHROOMS, BUT SADLY MOST OF THE SHOWERS DON'T EVEN HAVE SHOWER CURTAINS.  THIS IS A COUNTY PARK, AND THE RATES ARE QUITE REASONABLE.  ITS ONLY ABOUT 20 MILES TO MEXIC0.  THERE ARE A LOT OF FANTASTIC RESTAURANTS ON THE ISLAND.  (feb 09)                                                                                           WE CAME BACK IN JAN OF 2011.  NOT MUCH HAS CHANGED, EXCEPT THEY HAVE DECIDED A BUNCH OF NEW AND SOME OLD SITES ARE NOW PREMIUM SITES WITH OCEAN VIEWS THAT SHOULD COST OVER A HUNDRED DOLLARS MORE PER MONTH.  A LOT OF THESE SIGHTS ARE A REALLY TIGHT FIT.  (FEB 2011)

KEMAH RV RESORT IS LOCATED IN KEMAH, WHICH IS NORTH OF GALVESTON.  THEY HAVE FREE WIRELESS WHICH WORKED PRETTY GOOD.  IT IS A NICE PARK THAT WE HAVE STAYED AT EVERY YEAR THAT WE HAVE COME TO TEXAS (5 TIMES).  IT IS CLOSE TO THINGS, BUT SEEMS TO BE OVER-RUN WITH TRADES WORKERS, INSTEAD OF THE USUAL WINTER TEXANS.  (jan 09)

PIONEER RV RESORT & COTTAGES LOCATED AT PORT ARANSAS, TX.  THIS PARK ALSO HAS FREE WIRELESS WHICH WORKED PRETTY GOOD.  VERY CLEAN PARK, WITH A BOARDWALK DIRECT TO THE GULF OF MEXICO BEACH.  THIS IS A PARK THAT I WOULD NOT HESITATE TO STAY AT AGAIN.  ( feb 09)                                                                                I AM HERE AGAIN AND EVERYTHING IS STILL GREAT FOR THE START OF 2011!  THE WIRELESS IS STILL FREE, BUT IT TENDED TO CUT OUT AND SLOW DOWN A LOT!  I WAS TOLD THIS WAS BECAUSE SO MANY PEOPLE WERE DOWNLOADING MOVIES !  I SHOULD MENTION THAT OUR SITE COST US $45.00 A NIGHT.  (JAN 2011)

SERENDIPITY BAY RESORT IS LOCATED IN PALACIOS, RIGHT ON THE WATER.  IN FACT IT ALSO CONTAINS A MARINA.  WE HAVE STAYED THERE NUMEROUS TIMES ON OUR WAY TO SOUTH PADRE ISLAND.  THEY HAVE FREE WI-FI, BUT I COULDN'T GET IT TO WORK.  I ONLY SPENT ONE NIGHT THERE, SO I DIDN'T BOTHER GOING TO THE OFFICE TO GET THE PROBLEM SORTED OUT.  (jan 09)
