One bit of exciting news for Winter Texans is the addition of a brand new “state of the art” RV Resort, on the Coastal Bend in the quaint seaside community of Port Lavaca.

Groundbreaking for a new luxury RV park in Port Lavaca has commenced.

The new Texas Lakeside RV Resort, located midway between Houston and Corpus Christi and just inland from the Gulf Coast, will feature 97 sites in the first phase of development, according to a news release. The fully fenced and gated Texas Lakeside RV Resort is located one mile off of Highway 35 at the corner of West Austin Street (Highway 238) and County Road 101.

Developer Doug Jensen undertook this project several years ago with a lot of intensive research, his goal being to find the quintessential amenities for the ultimate RV facility.

Jensen traveled the state of Texas, speaking with RV park residents, managers, and owners. His goal was to discover the most-wanted features and seek out bright ideas that would help build “a new generation” RV Parks. Additionally, the staff of Texas Association of Campground Owners (TACO) has provided essential insight to the project. After the many hours of travel and phone calls, Jensen says he is pleased with the final plans.

“This RV Park has been engineered and designed with all campers in mind. The Resort has been built to achieve the highest ratings from both Good Sam’s Trailer Life Directory and Woodall’s,” says Doug Jensen. “I’m excited that it’s going to help more people discover that Port Lavaca is a great little seaside town with a lot to offer everyone.”

The park will include a 4000-square foot clubhouse with an essentials store, exercise room, media area, and pool tables will be the center hub of the community. A stocked fishing lake, a swimming pool and hot tub, a walking and jogging track, and several picnic areas, and dog runs lead the list of the park’s highlights.

Private restrooms and showers, security cameras, two laundry facilities, free Wi-Fi, and satellite TV are some of the many amenities. The fully-fenced and gated resort will feature 24-foot wide concrete roads leading to extra wide and long concrete RV pads that include a small yard space.

All sites will have full hook-ups with water, electricity, and sewer. Four site options will be available:

  • 60-foot back in
  • Big rig pull through
  • Waterfront
  • Deluxe waterfront

Initially, 35 waterfront and back-in sites are expected to be open by November. The balance of 62 sites will be under construction as well the clubhouse. All sites will have full hook-ups with water, electric, and sewer.

Texas Lakeside RV Resort is already a member of ARVC (National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds) and TACO and plans to join Good Sam and Woodall’s.
