Mercedes, Texas Campgrounds

Mercedes, Texas Campgrounds
Mercedes, Texas is near the southern tip of the state; 40 miles from the Gulf coast and less than 10 miles from the Mexican border. Mercedes has almost tropical air and the Estero Llano Grande State Park is right around the corner--much to offer those looking to park their RV or motor home for a few days or a few months. The nearby State Park attracts many birds, and its 176-acre refuge is the largest wetlands environment in the World Birding Center network. Don't forget to pack your binoculars! And if you aren't interested in wildlife, there are plenty of organized activities offered by the RV resorts in Mercedes.
