Either way, if the border stays closed to Canadians, you'll probably get some better deals down there, and across the rest of Snowbird land. Should be plenty of vacancies, too, I'd imagine.

Nearly 500 parks in the Valley. DO NOT MAKE Reservations, they are not needed. Come down, rent a spot for a week and visit many parks to find a park and site you like. I suggest the parks on Bentsen Palm Drive in Palmview. FYI This is currently a Covid 19 Hot Spot and unless it improves a lot group activities and music will be shut down. Some of the parks have also closed the pools.

At the current time. Alot of parks are on Lock down. With the Covid and the current flooding, it's anyone's guess when things will start being normal again.

Things were already changing before Covid 19 hit. It just hastened things along. Unlike twenty years ago, there are few people under 70 enjoying the RGV Winters. Dances that at one time sold out are now half occupied for instance. It is still a good bargain in weather for those frugal Midwesterners that want to get out of Iowa or Minnesota on the cheap. The appeal for many of us Singles was the dances but who knows if and when they will return?

I hope this does not come across as too negative as I plan to be here a couple of more Winters. It is cheap, windy, the locals are friendly, and there will be some bargains to be had in park models and mobile homes. Be aware that the locals are not worried about the Covid as they slam the ever popular flea markets without masks or distancing. That is why we are on the national news most evenings.

Disclaimer: I have no personal experience with the park, nor is it a promotion of it. We have friends from Illinois who winter at Paradise RV Park in Harlingen, TX. Their description seems to match your requirements. Hope this helps.
