Best Western Arena Inn & Suites is a fine place to get some rest, and you can stay the night at Holiday Village Mobile Home. Carlson Lake Levee has fine water scenery and it's in the vicinity of Carlson Lake, and Carlson Lake is a perfect spot to visit for more than one day, Valley
Grande Mobile Home Park is a perfect spot to camp nearby. This lake is so wonderful. Dry warm beds await you at Super 8 McAllen/Hidalgo/Mission Area, and on a wonderful day you can take a hike along the Bentsen - Rio Grande Valley State Park Trail.
