Gulf Coast RV Resort

We have a few days to kill between monthly stays, so we stopped for three days at Gulf Coast RV Resort in Beaumont, Texas. It’s a very nice RV park with concrete and grass, large pull-throughs, easy access from I-10 and a special stay two nights, get the third night free deal. And they offer a free breakfast in the morning, which is a feature that I have never seen before. Verizon and AT&T seem to work well.

Port Aransas for two months

We got to our not-so-deserted island today where we will stay for two months at Marina Beach RV Park in Port Aransas, Texas. We stayed here back in 2011 and enjoyed it so much that we had to come back. Our RV park is right across the street from the harbor, so we can walk there as often as we want to see the wildlife (both fish and human).

The real Wild West in Pecos

Pecos was the site of the world's first rodeoAnother Escapees RV park in Texas brought us to a pretty cool little town called Pecos. We stopped here at the Trapark, a pretty desolate spot. Terry needed a break from driving, so we decided to stay for two days rather than the usual overnight.

The wind was blowing briskly, so Kurt quickly set up his kite to begin practicing his flying techniques. The thing is amazing in high winds, and Kurt is rapidly becoming an expert kite pilot.

We were told that the museum was not to miss, so we headed out the next morning to check it out. Even I was overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of the museum that occupied both the old hotel and the saloon. Every room was set up with a different historical theme, and they even had a talking bartender who showed us where the bullet holes still are from a famous shootout that occurred there.

RL RV Park

We stopped here early in March and again today. It seems to be a good mid-way point for us and is located close to I-20.

The Escapees rate is $15 per night for 30 amp/$17 for 50 amp.

AT&T and Verizon both worked fine. TV is what you can get with your antenna (in our case nothing). Country music seems to be the only thing available on the radio. The lowly laundry consists of one washer and dryer, although there is no charge to use them. There is a big pond available for fishing, none of which Terry or Kurt could catch. We’ve decided to see how many states we can fish in without catching anything. The only rule is that some kind of bait or lure has to be used. We have to at least try.

Paso Robles RV Ranch

We stayed here for a little over two weeks in February 2010. The weekly rate was $230 with a Good Sam Discount. The nightly rate was $35.

The campground is small, but well-kept. Sites are somewhat small, but ours was level and easy to pull into. At least 50% of the units in the park seem to be permanent, so there is some noise in the morning when people leave for work. If you enjoy the Paso Robles Wine Country and are looking for a relatively inexpensive place to stay this is a good choice. Easy access off of Hwy. 101.
