MISSION—Bentsen Palm Village RV Resort was awarded Park of the Year in the medium size category Nov. 30 by the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds. Resort managers Guy and Juanita Carvajal were in Las Vegas to accept the award.
The association recognized the achievements of top private park operators, state associations and industry volunteers during its annual Outdoor Hospitality Conference and Expo last month in Las Vegas. Park of the Year awards were given to RV parks and resorts based on several criteria, including customer service, employee training, operational excellence, national directory ratings and community service.
Bentsen Palm Village RV Resort is owned by developer and builder Mike Rhodes and his wife Lori. It is a 250-site RV Resort located near Bentsen State Park and the National Butterfly Center on S. Bentsen Palm Drive in Mission. Earlier this fall, Bentsen Palm Village RV Resort was also named Medium Park of the Year by TRVA – Texas Recreational Vehicle Association – at their annual conference in Austin.
