Review of Johnson Creek RV Resort

30 03 2010

We’re at Johnson Creek RV Resort, a medium size park with about 50 spaces. It’s unique because all of the spaces are set among an active Pecan Orchard. Unfortunately the Pecan trees in this area haven’t spouted their summer leaves, so the forest of trees is a bit sparse right now. But, the RV sites and amenities are very nice. All sites are pull-through, attracting the really big rigs – lots of 5th wheels and coaches. We’re definitely the smallest rig in the park tonight! All driveways and parking spaces are cement, and all include water, sewer, electric, cable TV and an outdoor picnic table. Probably the most impressive feature of this park is the Club House which is a large, newer building set on the cliff above the meandering Johnson Creek below. Complete with a bar/social area, a card room, a billiard room, an outdoor pool surrounded by patios, and a very clean bathroom/shower room. There’s also an office building with a Country Store stocking many of the necessities and selling Pecans (of course). Wi-Fi is readily available with 2 pro-grade access points providing well over 2Mb download speeds.

This is the first park that we’ve found along the way with full time “Winter Texans” – northerners that spend 3 or more months in Texas during the winter time. Some that I met are full-timers – those who have sold their homes, packed away the possessions and taken to the road. Many of the Johnson Creek residents have been here all winter. Others are just stopping by for a couple of days or weeks on their way back north. Most of those “in-transit” have been in the lower Rio Grande valley.

Everyone I talked to love this location and the park. It’s much more like a mobile home park than a “camping” experience. We’d prefer to have more of a camping experience, maybe not quite as rustic as Balmorhea, but a location with a bit more space and privacy between sites would be great. However, for those wanting a “neighborhood” feel, great amenities, very friendly staff – Johnson Creek RV Resort is perfect.
