Great Site

While making our way to Big Bend National Park most of Texas experienced the coldest weather in 40 years. The winter weather caused two Texas State Parks, where we had reservations, to close. We were very fortunate that stickaler was able to accommodate our last minute schedule change. The site was new concrete that more than accommodated our 35’ motorhome. Several restaurants and stores were a short drive away as well as Falcon Lake.

Nice Overnight

We called the host when we were close and she met us at the road, showed us where to park and offered electric and water. We didn’t need as we’re self-contained. Very peaceful and quiet, away from town and about 1/2 mile to the lake. Would stay here again.

Last minute save

After days stuck in the winter storm in snow and ice outside San Antonio we escaped south to Zapata and heading further south.
Our host graciously accepted our last minute request and came out in the cold to ensure we found the driveway. The parking was on a nice cement pad. Thank you!

Wonderful Host

In spite of below freezing temperatures for Texas, we enjoyed the warm welcome from our host. Paved double driveway made it easy to level up and get a good night's sleep! Thank you so much

Haven on a cold night

We didn't get much chance to socialize as it was the coldest night of the lethal cold air which swept across the country in February. It was just a phone call, but XXXXX was very accomodating, even though we lost power during the night and pipes froze. I would recommend it if you're in the area.

Nice quiet place to rest

Sheryl was wonderful. She met us outside and made sure we were comfortable. The site was plenty roomy for our 5th wheel and truck. Great place to rest when traveling across south TX.

Easy & friendly "way out west" stopover

Host came outside, despite the very warm day, to flag us down as we passed by. We were looking for yellow house; it's more white-ish & the garage is a yellowish steel building. It was easy to back into ample driveway after we unhooked our toad. Had a very friendly chat. Our blind dog was given open-arm treatment and welcomed to join host pets in the yard. We were given an armful of fresh-picked grapefruits that proved to be delicious. We also enjoyed a drive around the area, spotting our first-ever glimpse of scaled quails, and had a great dining experience at Z Wings in Zapata.

Short stay but nice place and host

Nice place and host was great. Host met us out by the road so we did not miss the place. She got us settled into our spot, which was in the yard next to her own class A. Driveway was already taken by another RV'r or that's where we probably would have been asked to park. Host was great and even gave us some fresh grapefruit off their own tree. Spent several hours canoeing on the Falcon Lake Reservoir the next morning and had a great time due to the huge amount of bird life on the lake. Host was nice enough to invite us to go with them to a school concert but unfortunately we had already decided to leave a day early due to weather. We will definitely keep this spot on our radar if we ever happen to be coming through this area again. Thanks so much Stickaler for the great spot.

Peaceful stay

We had a very restful stay overlooking Falcon lake. Enjoyed visiting with our hosts who provided 15 amp electricity for us and sent us on our way with fresh oranges from their tree.

Spacious spot.

A comfortable spacious spot with Falcon Lake visible in the distance. Beautiful sunset and sunrise. I was only passing through and appreciate the hospitality. Nice folks.

A fisherman's dream!

We spent 2 nights here and really enjoyed it. Our hosts were very accommodating and nice. The kids enjoyed playing with the dogs and helping out in the garden. This was just an in between stop as we headed to the coast, but there is a great lake, Falcon Lake, that is great for fishing. Our host also gave us some info for nearby San Ygnacio, but we didn't have the opportunity to visit.

Thank you for a nice stay!

We had a lovely stay a this location. The site was great and easy to find and nice to be able to plug into 30 amp service. Friendly folk and pets. The scent of flowers on the evening breeze was heavenly. Thank you for a nice stay.

Welcoming location along Rio Grande Falcon Lake

Sheryl was enthusiastic even before our arrival suggesting points of interest along the Rio Grande on our trek from South Padre Island. Google maps wasn't accurate in her properties location, a simple phone call and she was outside, spotted us and helped us right into the space on asphalt in front of her garage.

While not directly visible from our location, a short walk provides a great view of the lake and sunset!

Seems like a great spot for a fisher or boater, we loved out visit to San Ygnacio and drive out on Falcon Dam to stand with one foot in the USA and the other in Mexico!
