Omega Farms Revisited

When we stayed at Omega Farms RV Park in May, we did not have a pleasant experience and my review of this place was not positive. We are enjoying our stay here this time much more.

The biggest difference this time is our campsite. This time, we are in site #5. It is roomier, has shade, and has a nice sidewalk running the length of the trailer.

Donna is having a great time, too. In addition to visiting her mother daily, she is fishing daily. I went along with her last night and watched as she pulled in several nice-sized bass. The pond, by the way, is catch and release only, so we were not able to eat anything Donna landed.

Probably the largest of the many bass Donna caught while I was watching
Donna has a good time even when she isn't catching anything

This is the definition of retirement

The RV park is really in a pretty setting, with good trees around the perimeter. In addition to the fishing pond, there is also a small laundry with 3 private bathrooms and showers. They are not the best facilities we've seen, but they are certainly adequate.

Nice view of the park. Lots of shade trees around the perimeter.
The park has a mix of full-time residents and short-term residents. Most of the long-term residents occupy sites around the perimeter, where most of the shade is. Short-term visitors usually occupy sites in the center, which are all pull-thrus with limited or no shade.

There is no cable TV connection here. Fortunately, we do pick up several stations out of Houston, so we are able to watch the Olympics and other programming. There is a WiFi connection, but it is a bit slow and is not a secure connection.

The park does not have a store, so propane and other supplies are not available. However, numerous businesses are only about half a mile away.
