The Great Outdoors

One of the first places you’ll want to visit when you’re RV camping at Acacia RV Park is Estero Llano Grande State Park. On the outskirts of town, this wetland area is a scenic weekend retreat for city dwellers but also a haven for birds, insects, and amphibians. Go prepared with the park’s birding checklist because the park has hosted over 340 bird species. Remember to look down, too; alligators lurk below the swampy waters. Five miles of walkways, two miles of which are wheelchair accessible, allow you to discover the ponds, woods, and wetlands.Another interesting place for birding enthusiasts is the Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park in Mission. Over 360 species of birds have been spotted in the park. Bring your binoculars to the Hawk Observation Tower, and you’ll see a variety of subtropical and migratory bird species. The park is also home to bobcats, reptiles, and the threated Coues' rice rat. The best way to explore the park is by bike or on foot via the seven-mile trail network. There’s also a designated wheelchair-accessible route.Drive a little farther during your RV camping vacation, and you can visit Falcon State Park near Roma. Spread across the Mexican-US border, this state park is home to an impressive 84,000-acre human-made reservoir. The mild winter temperatures in this region make it a popular getaway, no matter the season. Even in the wintertime, you can go for a swim in the freshwater lake, sunbathe, or paddle on the surface. On land, Falcon State Park is set up with a geocaching treasure hunt, as well as a butterfly garden, and a gentle three-mile loop trail.

Explore the Area

While you’re camping with an RV, you can also take a day or two to visit the city of McAllen. Here you’ll find a wide range of things to do. There are museums and galleries to visit, historical sites to see, and plenty of restaurants to choose from. As you’d expect in South Texas, the city offers plenty of American and Mexican eateries, but there’s also a generous selection of international cuisines to choose from, as well as trendy coffee shops, bakeries, and lively bars.You’ll find modern shopping malls and plazas across the city center but, for the biggest bargains and most unique stores, head to downtown McAllen. Also called the Business District, the streets of downtown McAllen are dotted with independent stores and boutiques that stock anything from vintage clothing to home furnishings. There are also a handful of big-name retail shops and discount stores.Of course, McAllen is a convenient place to restock on camping supplies. There are several supermarkets where you can pick up groceries, but a weekly highlight is the McAllen Farmers Market. It takes place each Saturday morning throughout the year. Here you can find the locally grown and fresh ingredients for an evening BBQ at your McAllen RV park. Plus, this is a great place to purchase handmade souvenirs and organic products.If you’re traveling with little ones, the International Museum of Arts and Science should definitely be on your itinerary. In this hands-on museum, children can experiment in the science playground, learn about healthy eating from an interactive exhibit, or play a real-life video game. The museum also hosts an extensive collection of Latin American art and organized family-friendly educational programs.A fantastic way to end your vacation with an RV rental near Acacia RV Park is to attend one of McAllen’s outdoor entertainment evenings. One of the most popular is Sunset Live, which is held once a month at the McAllen Convention Center. Bring a lawn chair and a picnic while you listen to live music from regional bands.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
