Texas RV Parks Ahead of 2009 Occupancy Pace

Texas has had its share of cold snaps this winter. But that hasn’t stopped Parkview Riverside RV Park in Concan from having its best winter since it opened a decade ago.

“We’ve had a few people who have left early because of the colder weather. But it really hasn’t cost us because it’s cold all over,” said park owner Doug Shearer. “Our bookings going forward now through May are well ahead of last year.”

Shearer, who also serves as president of the Texas Association of Campground Owners (TACO), added that private campgrounds and RV parks across the Lone Star State are having a good winter. “We had our board meeting two weeks ago and everybody is reporting excellent winter business,” he said, particularly in the southern parts of the state.

Here’s a sampling of what Texas parks are experiencing:
