poty-2016_karen-pikeFor the second year in a row, Llano Grande Resort and Country Club in Mercedes won the 2016 Large Park of the Year award at the state convention of the Texas Recreational Vehicle Association, which was held in Austin August 11 – 15.

Each year, RV resorts and parks submit applications and are judged by their peers.  Park of the Year awards are based on customer service, association involvement, excellence in operations, community service, park growth and innovations, and visual appeal.  There are three categories for submission: small, medium, and large park, based on the number of RV sites.  Llano Grande entered the large park (501 RV sites and above) with over 1100 sites.

Llano Grande has been an active member in the Rio Grande Valley Chapter of TRVA.  This is the third time Llano Grande has won this prestigious award.  In addition to last year’s win, they also won in 2010.
