Southwinds Marina on Lake Amistad Featured
December 18-25, 2016

Well, some things never change and probably won't. Homemade trailer still there going on 3 years, even with change in long term policy at both marina and Lauglin, told it's 90 days out for 24 hours, then return for another 90 with no waivers. New Force Support Chief has taken over and new manager is supposed to start on Jan 9. Sites 11-20 full hook up are now basically long term and were all occupied, fairly clean around sites, except for one or two. One site is taken by maint man. I would recommend calling for a reservation before driving out, there were electric and water sites available and only 2 full hook ups available during the week of Christmas. Laughlin had 4 sites available over the weekend before Christmas when we drove through, they were the first come first serve sites and had none of the receivables available. Has improved some from last year but still could use some work. Hanna has done a fairly good job for being thrown into the weeds. We stayed for a week then moved into town to Broke Mill which is a lot nicer and has a lot more to offer than the marina or Laughlin, and only $8 more a day more on the daily rate or weekly rate. It was still a peaceful and nice stay, but with price increase I don't think it's worth it since we don't fish.
