Three Oaks RV Park offers quiet, country living
Three Oaks RV Park is a family affair. Owner Tom Smith visits at the site with with his father and on-site manager, Gene Smith.
FLORESVILLE -- As more workers fill the recreational-vehicle (RV) parks in the Wilson County area, the RV parks have begun to reflect their desires.
Three Oaks RV Park, located at 1310 C.R. 102 in Floresville, is no exception, as it offers state-of-the-art options for the busy worker.
“We are now beginning to offer WiFi service to our clients,” said park owner Tom Smith. “The park actually began as a casual conversation I was having and one thing led to another and now we are up and running.”
Three Oaks RV Park has been a family affair since its inception and continues to be so.
“My son, Jeff Smith of JKS Engineering, was the engineer and designer,” Smith said. “Once we got the park up and running, my dad, Gene Smith, came on as the 24-hour on-site manager. That is one feature I believe separates us from other RV parks; we have a manager on-site 24 hours a day, and that helps to keep a great rapport with the guests. Other amenities include a washateria and chipped asphalt pads.”
Three Oaks RV Park is located off S.H. 97 just outside Floresville.
“I think that our location is one of the best things we offer out here,” Smith said. “We offer our guests peace and quiet. We are not in the city; country living and the quiet country life is what our guests enjoy. That is what my goal was in the beginning -- to create a quiet, secluded park. I wanted it to be safe for the campers. We don’t want FEMA trailers or parties out here. We want hardworking people who want to be able to come home to a quiet, enjoyable park, and I believe that is what we have built here at Three Oaks RV Park.”
“The guests we have had here are just great,” Gene said. “Good, family-oriented people, and that is the environment we want to create and maintain here. Everyone here is hardworking and trying to support their families; they make my job real easy.”
Providing the right environment and amenities seems to be the secret of the park’s success, according to the family.
“I believe that our park has everything that Eagle Ford workers want,” Tom said. “Workers want peace and quiet, WiFi, a washateria, and access to all of the surrounding areas by being located right outside of Floresville. We have even got some campers here that do not have anything to do with the Eagle Ford work. There was a college student who was going to Palo Alto that moved here because it’s a great location and close to the school.”
Tom said his park has been a success and he could not have accomplished it without the help of local government officials.
“If it wasn’t for the help of the county commissioners and the utility providers, such as FELPS and the Three Oaks Water District, we wouldn’t have been able to bring this park to light,” Tom said. “I am thankful for all of the help I received from them and my county commissioner, Albert Gamez.”
Three Oaks RV Park has spaces available for $450 per month, plus electricity. Amenities include WiFi, laundry facilities, 24-hour on-site management, and more.
