Nature’s Own RV Resort was our last stopover between Big Bend and Mission Texas. It’s a big state, and Nature’s Own RV is a pretty big RV park. Considering it has the best bathrooms I’ve seen in any park, it is worth the asking price.
- Perfect Bathrooms and Showers
- Modern amenities
- Full hookups
- Concrete pads
- Some road noise (depending on your location in the park)
Nature’s Own RV is a nice modern RV park. All the pads are nice level concrete and all the buildings and amenities are clean, modern, and well maintained. Like a lot of Texas parks the parking area has a lot more gravel than grass which makes launching outside the trailer unappealing. We were amused and surprised by the tiny little park benches at each site; about half normal size.
What it lacks in green spaces, it makes up for in its clubhouse. They have a great TV area with incredibly nice, brand new rocking recliner chairs. A great place to chill out while you do laundry. Their bathrooms take the award for best in our travels so far. There are four private bathrooms with showers. They are well designed and include niceties such as fuzzy shower mats so the floors don’t get wet and your feet get dry. Short of a luxury hotel, these are as good as it gets.
They have a small pool designed for cooling off more than swimming in. The internet is pretty good but does drop off in the evening like it does in most RV parks. We got great cell reception so we didn’t need to use it all that much. The location is convenient to shopping and restaurants, but being next to a large highway you get a lot or road noise if you are located at the front of the park. The back of the park is probably well insulated from that, but it’s largely the domain of longer term residents.
The price is a little higher than we like to pay, but I think it is perfectly reasonable considering the quality of the park.
We did have a small adventure in the park. As we were washing our RV (a $10 fee is charged for this) we encountered a cat wandering the grounds. I was giving it a pet and wondering about its owner when one of the staff drove by and informed us it was abandoned by someone recently who stayed in the park. They told us we were welcome to adopt it. Kekovar and Kia were not keen on the notion so we decided to take it to a local no-kill shelter so it would be fed and cared for. Hopefully, she can find a good home as she seems a very sweet cat.
