Bee County Adds 14 RV Parks in 2011 Alone

RV parks are the craze in South Texas. Man camps, rv parks, and everything else housing related is flourishing in the Eagle Ford. In Bee County, 14 rv parks have been built in 2011 alone. Add those being built outside the county and you can bet more than a couple of dozen rv parks have opened this year across the area. If you're looking for an RV or an RV Park, visit the Eagle Ford Shale MarketPlace. Specifically, the RV Category. If you'll be in South Texas for a while, you can also find hotels and other housing providers at our Eagle Ford Housing page. For the hotels, book your stay through the links and you'll get the Eagle Ford preferred rates. We've negotiated discounts of up to 20% for our audience.

This is up from, well, zero during the past few years.

“This is something new to Bee County,” Fritz said. “These things are popping up like mushrooms because of the people working in the Eagle Ford Shale kingdom.”

The county first began seeing the influx of people at the first of the year when the Eagle Ford drilling kicked into gear.

“The whole problem was the lack of housing in our area,” Fritz said. “Guys were staying all over and driving over here to work in the field.”
