Snowbirding at Bentsen Grove


Recommended Posts

We woke up in early January, dedided it was too cold for us, and since we have an Ollie, why not?   Some friends of ours are snowbirds in South Texas, near Mission at a RV Park named Bentson Grove (Actually in the town of Palmview, Tx).


We left home in North MS (cold?) and headed South West.  Took four days to travel the 1,000 miles to our destination.


One RV camp along the route that I would recommend was named River View at Vidalia, LA.  Park right along the Mississippi River, spend time in an old Southern City (Natchez)...great place.


Snowbirding at Bentsen Grove was fantastic. They had so much to do! I enjoyed the bike club with their frequent "rides to breakfast".  Some rides were a bit more challenging than the breakfast rides, with maybe 7 riders vs the 25 riding to a meal.  I also enjoyed the ping-pong and pickle ball. Elizabeth had her own activities to include an art class, glass work..etc. We visited the World Birding Center for riding and hiking (as well as viewing a few birds).  Dances each Friday night, Spanish lessons...way too much to cover. I actually spent very little time in the Ollie except to sleep.  If you are cold reading this Check out the website at www.bentsengroveresort.com.


We stayed a month...highly recommended if you want to be around so many people and engaged in lots of activities.
