The parking is on good concrete pads. The utilities worked well. The wi-fi worked reasonably well. It is a nice place to stay especially if you like to play loud outside music to all hours of the night. Tie your pet outside to bark at everything that moves. And laundry was good. The location is very convenient to going places since it is very near the loop around Aransas Pass. The maintenance is kept up very well. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nicely kept park and amenities and our site was concrete pad with nice landscaped yard. Lot of Winter Texans and mostly friendly, but there are groups that travel together. Lots of Happy Hours and some play instruments. Activities are posted daily outside, which was nice. The parks amenities are great. I rated this park an 8 because there were parks closer to fishing areas, which we like and other site seeing areas in the Rockport and Port Aransas area. We stayed for a month and paid $345 plus electricity. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a new and very beautiful park. The landscaping is wonderful and very neatly done. The sites are more than ample, some are double wide. The people are friendly and really know what they are doing. I would recommend this park to anyone. Great Park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped here twice this year, the last time in October. Very friendly, clean, concrete sites, and excellent utility hookups. Would definitely stay here again. Stayed here for a week. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
New park. Nice level concrete pads, but kind of hard to get into with a big fifth wheel. Small pool and hot tub, but they are clean. Probably will not stay again because they are more interested in long-term RV'ers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice, new park. The owners are very nice people. Nice concrete sites with picnic tables. Very well landscaped. The owners are very friendly and want you to enjoy yourselves. The pool and bath houses and laundry facilities are all very nice. I will go back again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very new RV park. This park is still not complete, but it is getting there quickly. Rate is based on weekly stay. Cable TV is not currently available at all sites as the owner cut off service to unused sites. It didn't bother us as we have satellite available. It is going to be a very nice park with easy access to the Aransas area. There are no pull-thru's but all the sites are wide and easy to get into. The grounds are maturing quickly. While we were there the Bathroom/shower (nice) and pool opened and the laundry got very close to opening when we left. By the next "Winter Texan" season this park should be at the 90+% completion rate including paving the roads. If vacationing in this area again, I would stay here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great campground would rate a Ten but, can't till the pool, bath house and rec rooms are finished. I am sure they will be nice as the rest of the place is. The roads are not in but graded and watered down on dry days. Looking at the rest of the park you would think they will be a top ten campground in all the books. The hosts are very nice, they have a special under construction rate. I would reserve for next winter if I was going to winter in this area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We just stayed at this park last weekend and it was awesome! It is very private but close to the amenities of town. The park is so beautiful and the landscaping is gorgeous. It is a brand new park. The pool, hot tub, club house and bathhouse with private restrooms including full size showers are being erected right now. We loved staying there and can't wait to go back. The amenities they are adding will only make it better. It is a great park!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had been very disappointed with a park we had reserved a site, so we left looking for another place. The manager at this park was very helpful and friendly. She worked things around so we could have a month at a site in the park at the last minute. We were very pleased with our site. It was right on the water so we could fish out of our back door. The lighted fishing pier was great. We had a very good experience here and will come back yearly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Old old park. The park is dirty and full of dog waste. Our motor home was covered with the wet weeds and grass when the mower cut the lawn. Not only that, our sewer hose was sliced open. The owner has her own policy of not accepting responsibility for their mistakes. She said we should contact the person who mows the grounds. There are a lot of dumpster divers in and around the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is the old city airport with campsites on both sides of the runway with 300' fishing pier at end of runway. Great park for fishing and close to everything in that area. Easy access, close to restaurants, groceries, Wal-Mart and just the right distance from Corpus Christi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price cited is with PA discount. This is a bare bones park OK for an overnight. Sites are gravel over asphalt and 25 X 50 feet so they are wide and long. I didn't need to unhook. Hookups are in the back of the site so they are OK for a motorhome not so good for a trailer. I would stay here again at this price. The price in the PA book is $12.50 for 30 amp and $15 for 50 amp but I was told it's the same $15 for either. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Extremely clean, maintained park. We had 4 children and 2 dogs with us so we felt somewhat out of place. This is more of an older, single camping community, but having said that, they treated us good and were friendly. Very close to Mustang Island and all of the shops, so that was a definite plus. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Weekly rate $135, monthly $225. Good location, close to shopping and attractions. Clean and well kept. Combination of permanent sites and spacious RV sites. Good free Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wonderful park, friendly people, close to shopping (Wal-Mart 1 mile). Have been in campgrounds that charged much more and not as nice. We stayed 3 months at $224.00 a month. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly park. We were warmly received and guided to our site and stayed with us until all our hookups were successfully made. This park is has both full time mobile homes and RV sites that very spacious and well maintained. Located conveniently to all stores, Wal-Mart, Lowe's, etc. We will return next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nightly rate reflects the monthly rate plus the cost of electricity. This is an excellent park, with a friendly staff. It is well landscaped, well maintained, with concrete roads and pads, and clean facilities. I had been staying at this park for the months of May and October for the past 8 years, with the exception of May 2012. In October of 2011, while staying at this park, it became very apparent that the then manager had become extremely rude and argumentative, making this park less than pleasant, so I determined to find another park for future stays. In May 2012, while staying at another park in the area, I went to Ransom Road RV Park to visit old friends of many years who were there. I found out that the manager was gone on vacation and fortunately he was not returning to manage the park. A long time employee who was the acting manager during this time became the permanent manager, and I am back to staying at this park. The only down side at this park is that the WiFi has serious problems, and hopefully they will be solved by my return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent park and is well landscaped and well maintained with concrete interior roads, concrete pads and clean attractive facilities. I would rate this RV Park a 10 if WiFi wasn't so erratic. The park was quiet, except for a few workers living there who leave early in the morning. The staff was friendly. Definitely the place to stay in that area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is very neat and clean and has a wonderful clubhouse. Many sites have paved parking for two vehicles or boat and it is located two blocks from marina with boat slips, etc. Management was very helpful and kept a close eye on the place. Our rate reflects a group rally rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This lovely park is well landscaped and well maintained with good concrete interior roads, concrete pads and clean attractive facilities. Basic utilities were good; Wi-Fi was extremely erratic. The AT&T phone signal in the area was good but the data signal was poor. The park was quiet, both residents and staff were friendly. The rate is weekly. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We thoroughly enjoyed this park. Check-in was easy by a very accommodating office staff that was efficient and professional. This quiet, well lit park has concrete roads and pads, a nice grassy strip between rigs (some with a nice sized palm tree) and a picnic table. They have a clean laundry room, handy mail room and a variety of activities in the rec room. Most residents are long-term but everyone is friendly and keep their sites clean and picked-up. Propane can be delivered to sites by a private company. A marina is just two blocks away and the fishing has been good (our neighbor hosted a couple of fish fries). We stayed here two and a half months. Rate represents monthly, water and sewer included, electric is additional and metered at $.15 p/kwh. Would definitely stay here again but would make reservations well in advance. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park with concrete pads, roads, and some tables. The park's Wi-Fi and our Verizon cell both worked great. We stayed for two nights on Passport rate and one week on weekly rate averaging $22.00 a day. It was a short drive to Port Aransas and beach access. This is our second time here and we would definitely return again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Rally rate. Park spotless, very well maintained, well lighted at night, very nice rally buildings. Personnel very nice and offered to help. We stayed here for 5 days. Located a short distance from town,shopping and near launch ramps for boats.Many resident campers. Concrete drive ways and parking pads. Did not use baths, cable or Wi-Fi (have our own Wi-Fi and Sat). Lots of palm trees so no shade. My only comment was that the typical back in space was close to neighbors. We would stay here again but request a pull through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
While we did not actually stay in this park, we visited friends here and wished we had. Park was clean and sites were a little close but adequate. Because of the snowbirds, this park was full and did not have availability until too late for us to change our plans. My husband played pool with some of the residents and found them to be friendly. We would like to stay here next time in the area if they have space. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is well landscaped, with concrete streets and wide pads. There are many different configurations of pads to select from, for different prices. It is very, very clean and a real community of pleasant people. Many actively attended activities, including a weekly music jam. It is close to water and easy to get to from major highways, but has a small town atmosphere which is very appealing. We will be back next year for the winter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great RV park in Aransas Pass, Texas. This RV Park was immaculate. We arrived after hours on a Saturday. Upon arrival, there was a packet taped to the office window with our name on it. Inside the envelope was a site map highlighting our site. Within minutes we were greeted by a Park Host in a golf cart that escorted us to our site and assisted us in getting parked. The other residents in the park were absolutely wonderful and quite friendly. We would not hesitate to stay here again and have no problem recommending this park to anyone visiting the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Clean, well maintained RV park. Rate reflects weekly stay. Cement pads, patios and good interior roads. Very Big Rig friendly. Windy, but that's to be expected on the Texas coast. Plenty of things to do and see in Port Aransas and Corpus Christi. Will stay here again if we are in the Corpus Christi area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The nightly rate reflects a week rate discount as we stayed a week. Cement pads, a small patio and small picnic table are nice but very windy while we were here, so we did not sit out much. This is a cement pad and grass between sites park, no sand. Many things to do in the area, especially Port Aransas, accessible by the FREE ferry. Also many things to do in Corpus Christie, only a few miles around the bay. Clean restrooms and laundry area are nice and the park is very clean. Camp host is friendly the camp helpers keep the grounds looking nice. Good local restaurants in town with seafood and Hispanic food excellent plus fish markets if you want to cook your own. We will stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pet Friendly. Two(2) dog walk areas. 1 mile from H.E.B. Market. Ideal for fisherman. Larger Concrete areas with grass between sites. Extremely Clean Laundry and Restroom. Lots of Pride taken. Will be back next year. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff is very friendly and so are the other RV'ers. We stayed here from the middle of November 2010 to the end of January 2011. There is a lot of activities at the club house or you can chill out on your own. We met several nice couples and enjoyed our stay here. Probably will return next fall. Not sure about the daily rate we paid weekly/monthly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here for a year. Well laid-out campground with great palm trees and concrete sites. Owners (who stay here frequently) are friendly, but seem to have little involvement in park management. The park manager is very rude and appears to have inappropriate "control" issues with guests. Campground amenities are good (though a pool would be a great addition). All here are retirees and most are very friendly neighbors. I would rate this park with a higher score were it not for the persistent rudeness of management. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 7 / 10 ]
Price reflects Passport America discount. I asked for a pull-through for a 2 nights stay. He led us to the corner lot facing the entrance which was not suitable for our 37" motorhome, as the patio was several feet to the rear and I had to walk in the grass upon exiting the RV. The bad SMELL we discovered was from the nearby sewer treatment plant. We had to close the windows on a nice, breezy day. I wouldn't use the showers because of no privacy in the dressing area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Outstanding park for adults. Absolutely nothing for kids to do however. No pool or playground, which we didn't mind. Concrete streets and pads with no annoying speed bumps. Everything was immaculate. Good WiFi and cable TV. Staff friendly and helpful. Would definitely come back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very well kept park with nice level concrete pads. The staff is very friendly and Wi-Fi is strong. We're staying here for a month and a lot of the others are long-timers. The park is booked up solid for the winter with snowbirds. Great park. We'll be back next year. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
By far the best RV resort in the area. Managers are very helpful and do their best to make your stay pleasant. They have a waiting list in the winter and are having more and more summer people. We have stayed there several times, and it just seems to get better each time. We have a 45' motorhome and have no problem in the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.

I was here with a rally group and the managers and owners were so friendly and helpful with information and hook ups. We had a rally rate and found the site just what we need for a rally again next May. The Big Fisherman restaurant was close by with delicious food at reasonable prices. If you want take the fishing tour, you need to book early but there is information on local interests in the large meeting room which has a 52" TV with cable, kitchen, pool table. All this site lacks is a pool. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects discount. A well kept quiet park just a block from the pier and a few blocks from the bridge to free ferry to Port Aransas and Mustang Island activities. About ten miles from Rockport/Fulton area. If you are interested in fishing or nature, this is a good base park. There is grass between sites and landscaping is kept up. Did note ant hills in the grass. Restroom and laundry are clean. Management is friendly and helpful. A number of good local restaurants are within a few minutes drive. HEB grocery and Wal-Mart are within a few minutes too. We hope to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean, well kept RV park. Nice landscaping all cement pads and roads. All utilities are excellent. Easy access from local roads. Expect the campground to be full during the winter season. Rate reflects weekly. Relaxed, comfortable area with shopping and services nearby. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second year here. We had an extended stay of 2 half months which came to less than the nightly rate . Very nice place with friendly people. We parked here in a 40 footer. It has nice and wide interior access roads. Sites are not crowded. Near the marina and one of the best hamburger cafes in the area so fisherman should be very pleased. Good security. Saturday night musical entertainment is wonderful with RV'ers from other parks playing country and blue grass music. Happy hour is every evening in the rec hall. All is usually planned by the winter Texan's staying here. There is not a lot of organized events such as wood shop or a pool etc. which is the only reason I did not give it a ten. This is on the whole a clean well appointed, quiet place. I would stay again with out hesitation. Many of the occupants have been coming for years. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a great location for exploring central Gulf Coast - Port Aransas, Corpus Christi, Rockport. There are nice large cement pads and grass. There are lots of long-term residents who seems to be enjoying themselves - activities etc. The showers were very clean - doubt if very many use them which was okay with us! Entry to showers, laundry, and office is rather limited and while we there two out of the three mornings the staff were cleaning the cement for over two hours making it difficult to use the facilities. We appreciate the care taken to keep this RV Park in A+ condition but in the morning when folks are using the showers etc does not seem to be a good time to be blocking off the area. Showers etc can be cleaned in the afternoon when folks are out and about. Other than that we would stay here again. The staff was friendly, and gave good directions and everything was super clean and in great condition. It is a nice place for walking dog down to ICW and pier- saw dophins, herons, and egrets. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The only thing this park lacked was a swimming pool. Our rate was the PA rate. Had there been a pool we would have stayed there longer. Would definitely go there again. Staff were very friendly as were the campers in the park who were Snowbirds from all over. Plenty to do around the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This has to be one of the cleanest CG's we've been in. The owner/managers work hard to keep it that way. They have and will go out of their way to accommodate their guests. I hardily endorse this CG to anyone planning to visit this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park! Will come back! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Nicely maintained and landscaped park with wide cement roads and level cement sites. Friendly and accommodating owner. We arrived late in the day without planning and were well taken care of. We would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautifully maintained park. We just happened to luck out and get the last space available; otherwise, I understand this place is usually full in the winter months. They have sites of varying sizes; you pay more for wider, more spacious sites, but ours overlooked a canal in the back, and I didn't feel claustrophobic about the neighbors. We can only stay a week due to incoming reservations, but I wouldn't mind at all spending multiple weeks or months here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park. Not all sites are created equal here. Some are large & wide, others are very narrow. Well maintained grass between each site. We had a beautiful site that backed on a canal but it was only available for 3 nights. Most people are here for the winter. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice cement pad large sites. Half are pull through sites. Nice grassy area between sites. Very close to the water. Many Winter Texans stay here. No pool. Very clean and friendly atmosphere. Nothing really to do here but for the price you can't beat it. ($240 / month)! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice, clean park. Everything works. Yes, a lot of concrete, but if it wasn't there, there would be a lot of MUD...concrete is better than mud. Friendly office staff and telephone people. We used Passport America for 2 nights @ $15.00 and then the rate went to $28.00. Weekly rates of $125 are very good and should be used even if you are staying only 5 nights. Given the facilities, clean area and sites, we felt it was a very good bargain for the $$ Cable TV is $1/night (strange) and pay Wi-Fi, which works very well. Guess I'd rather pay for internet access and have it work than have slooow internet that's free... Road signage to Aransas Pass is a bit confusing due to the construction on US 181 and Tx 361/Tx 35. We don't think this is a knock against the park. Fault Texas road construction. We certainly will be back and might spend a month here in the upcoming winter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The on-site manager Ben was extremely helpful and friendly. The park was clean, safe, and friendly. This was our first trip and adventure parking with our new 5th wheel, and we found it very easy and Ben assisted us with unhitching. We had no difficulty finding the park, and it is close to water, grocery, and water. We originally chose this park because it was a pet friendly place to stay, but now we will return because of the park and staff. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Concrete everywhere; entrance, roadways, and pads. Person who answered phone is gruff, but personable when going face-to-face and when helping to back into a site. Many winter-Texans were evident and everything was spotless. WiFi is pay as you use it rather than free and ditto for cable TV. Size of sites was OK for our 40' motorhome, but had the impression of being stuffed into a campsite as most are small widths. Probably will not stay there again due to difficult access from major highways and confusing signage on roadways...typical for TX. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park; 5 years old. Very friendly owner/manager. The sites are paved. They are spaced close together. When it rains, the water sits on the grass/dirt areas until it evaporates so at times we were walking in standing water/mud. Laundry room, bath rooms and club house are nice and clean. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here a month. Roads to the park are rough, used by 18 wheeler tanker trucks to transport petroleum. These transports are noisy if you are in a site close to the road, but we were away from road. Sites are nice, but close, and have quite a few workers staying there that make noise as they are leaving for work early in the weekday mornings. Laundry is nice and clean. Management is friendly, helpful. Fairly dog friendly, but no dog park or run. Some pick up after pets, others do not. Not many activities going on in park, but management is trying to get some started. Office closes early at 4 pm, so activities have to be "scheduled". Wi-Fi is weak; cable is good. Verizon cell service is good. Might come back, but doubtful as there are other RV resorts that are nicer at same price. Walmart and HEB are very close as is Lowe's. Lots of shots were being fired close by, evidently hunting season. That is reason for lower score. Nightly rate is monthly rate, which does NOT include electricity. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects weekly rate. Owners extremely friendly, helpful, and enthusiastic. We reserved an extra long super-site. However upon arrival there was none available, We had some difficulty maneuvering 42' Toyhauler onto regular site. Site was level, utilities and cable excellent. Verizon voice and data were excellent. Dog friendly, with dirt road alongside of campground for longer walks. Restrooms and laundry exceptionally clean. Excellent location - easy drive into Corpus Christi,and to beaches. WalMart 5 miles, HEB grocery 2 miles. We would stay here again (preferable in a super-site). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here 2 months and enjoyed it the whole time. The park is 15 minutes from Rockport, Port Aransas, Corpus Christi, and close to shopping. The owners are very congenial and have made this park a good place to stay. Concrete pads for all sites, clean grounds, and nice recreation building. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love this park. It's is the 5th time my husband and I have stayed here. The park is very well kept. The facilities are always clean. The staff is very helpful. We were able to easily get our 40ft RV in and out of the extra long sites. All of the sites are spaced a good distance apart, so we did not feel like we were right on top of our neighbors. The rates are good especially for all of the amenities. We would highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very new park (2008), so the vegetation still needs time to cover all spaces between paved sites and the sites have no numbering. The owner/manager lives on site and is very helpful/pleasant to work with. Park is about halfway between Corpus Christi and Rockport. Nice laundry and shower facilities. While there is no dog run/park within the park, there is a deserted road right outside the south side of the park for the dog to run free. There were lots of well behaved dogs in the camp. Also, probably 60% of the park is permanent residents (workers in the area). The street to the RV Park is rough and narrow with tanker trucks coming and going at all hours. The good news is that the RV park is only a short distance down this road. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Small, well kept campground. Park staff was very friendly and helpfull including suggestions on what to see and do in the area. All sites have concrete pads and grass areas. Lots of room between sites. We found this a great campground for a short term stay while seeing the sites of the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A relatively new park - not a resort as it does not have a pool. It does have a nice gathering room for cards, etc. Laundry facility is small and clean. Cable TV was a bit snowy and the owners tried to correct the matter. One Wi-Fi access point did not always work, but they have several and one of the others always worked. Area looked like it might flood if there was an abundance of rain. We would return again if we needed to be in Aransas Pass rather than Rockport or Corpus Christi. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a recently constructed park so everything seems to work well and hookups are well located. Staff is very eager to make sure you are happy. An RV park resort it isn't, though. No pool, nothing for kids but there were some activities in the rec room. What made this attractive for us may turn others off. It was a block off the highway so traffic noise was minimal, there is nothing around it but it is great for birdwatching and it was about a half mile walk to water. All sites are concrete pads, so you are high and dry but the ground surrounding can puddle up pretty good after a rain. It does make a good base for exploring the Corpus Christi region. WiFi was excellent. We'd stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I've read the other reviews and will agree about a few things. Ants, burrs and garbage cans. Other then that we had a great time there. there is a new manager, Mrs. Smith, very friendly and accommodating. The people in the park were also very friendly as well. We were invited to more then 1 4 o'clock. Good power, Open skies for Sat. AT&T good, good water pressure. We stayed here in a MH , loved the long pull thru. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects "Rally" rate. Not impressed with the park. Reservations "very" difficult to make. Phone calls never returned. Took 3-4 calls to talk to someone. Owner very accommodating. Office Manager seems to know nothing about RVing & refused to assist us several times. Most people in the park were friendly, but some actually said we were not welcome. Sites were good sized, but grass is covered with sand burrs, so much so that pets could not walk on the grass. The pet run was also covered in burrs. Expensive "pay by the drink" WI-FI is the only thing available & no cable available. This is the furthest thing from a Luxury Resort. Will not return. There are plenty of other new parks in the area to choose from. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for a couple of days. Overall its a nice and clean park, and would certainly stay here again, however, there are some big things to overcome. There is no internet service so to speak, yes there is a really over priced, hourly rate service managed by a 3rd party company that one can use. For the price of this place, they need to have free Wi-Fi. For me, this is a deal breaker, that come next time, we will probably try out another location in the area, before coming back here. The pool & club house on the property are nice, we used both. Showers were nice and clean, did not do any laundry, so can't speak to that. The other big complaint we had: no trash cans. There was no where for us to throw our trash. Asked, they said just put trash out on the street, we will come by and pick it up. Come morning, we find a stray dog neck deep into the trash bags making a mess. Another problem are the ants. In this area of Texas, its kind of a hard thing to control, but something needs to be done. The ants are everywhere. We did not have any get into our MH, however the couple next door to us had them get into their Travel Trailer while they were gone at beach for the day: what a mess that was. As for small complaint, no cable is kind of bad. Was able to pick up a few channels OTA but for a "Luxury" park, they need to offer cable TV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 3 months. The park is still under development, but the management is working hard to make this a luxury park. Very convenient to Corpus, Rockport, shopping and highways. IMO best park in Aransas Pass. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here two winters in a row. It is a very nice park. In March of 2012 I made a reservation for 2013 with a $200 deposit. A couple of weeks before arriving I heard some comments in the RV community about management, or lack of, problems at Southern Oaks, Aransas Pass. I wont go into what I heard, because it was second hand information and I cannot vouch for it's accuracy. Although I experienced some of what I heard. So I call the park to be sure that my reserved site is waiting for me and I was told they were filled up and I did not have a spot. What about my deposit and reservation? Glad I made the call, it would not have been a good thing to pull in and find out I didn't have a spot at the last minute. I had to scramble to find a park to stay at. Owner was very rude on the phone. He kept telling me that he was in customer service for 30 years. That didn't mean much to me as I kept thinking 30 years of poor customer service. Anyway, I did recover my $200 deposit, and although under correct management this would be a very nice place to stay, I will not go back till that changes. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The quoted rate reflects a weekly rate. This park is only 3 years old so much of the vegetation is still young. All of the streets,sites & patios are paved, and the sites are spacious with ample room on both sides. The registration office is still in a temporary building, but there is a very nice laundry and community center in the park. The park hosts were very friendly. There are nice walking trails and a fenced-in dog run area. The only negatives were the lack of cable TV, fee-driven Wi-Fi and only one laundry/rest room area which was quite a way from the camping area. Perhaps once the park is more "mature", ratings will improve. The park is about a mile from the coast but easily accessible (but not clearly marked) via Hwy 35 Bypass. I would return to this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is new and nice. Not a destination but easy in and out for 45 footer. Paved level sites. Office was helpful when we asked to extend. Many spend winter here and I can see why. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As stated below, this a new park and facilities are continuously being added. The grand opening for the large Activity Building (club house) is March 24 with free food and dance and tour of the full project. Pool, billiards, weight room, library, gathering room with wet bar and a Great Room along side a full kitchen are all included. Off the road, neat and tidy. New laundry and showers to be built in the surveyed expansion which may take it to around 75 spacious sites. The golf course will have 5 active holes this spring and the other 4 by fall (already set in place and being rejuvenated). Driving range in place. The owners community has had a surge of sales and then building, but this has not bothered the rental community at all. Come this fall this place will be THE PLACE TO BE. Dances, season/holiday meals, special gatherings are already being planned. We will be back for 5 months. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is based on a monthly stay plus electricity. While improvements are ongoing, this park is still a ways from being a "resort" and is overpriced for the quality of services. Sites are level concrete pads with patio and table; however, there is no cable TV and the Wi-Fi is not only not free, but is priced much too high. Far enough off the highway to be quiet while fairly convenient to Port Aransas, Rockport, and Corpus Christi. Verizon cell and Aircard service were good. Most residents are returning snowbirds so there is a clique, but most residents were friendly. The new management is upgrading the park, and many of the "owner" lots have been sold, which resulted in construction vehicles and noise starting each day. There are other parks in the area with comparable or better facilities that are more reasonably priced, and if we return to the area, we'll look elsewhere. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Passport America rate, which is good for a maximum of 3 nights. This is a very nice park and is on its way to becoming a great park. It is still being developed, but the pool is done now. The laundry, library, restrooms and showers are done also. The rest of the community center is under construction. We parked on a pull-through site, which was level and long. Part of the development is for owners and part is for visiting RVers. Additional RV sites have been staked out, also. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This may well become a luxury RV park in the future, but for now it's a work in progress. The staff is very friendly and the park has full services. Lots of concrete, including a huge parking area at the office and concrete pads and parking sites. WiFi cost us $12 for the week and worked well. The big activities center is still under construction but the showers, library, washrooms and laundry are open and functioning. The swimming pool is still a big hole. They started work on a golf course but it will take a lot of money to finish. They let us wash our RV: once. We got the PA rate of $17.50. We did notice that the long-term residents in the park are a tad cliquish. It was hard to get anything more than a "hello" from anyone. We wouldn't hesitate to return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean and except for some highway traffic, quiet. If you're a light sleeper, better move on. I am; we should have. Also they need to take the word "Luxury" our of their title; it's just a plain ole RV park. Staff is friendly but not very knowledgeable about local things to see and do. We did go to Corpus Christie and go aboard the USS Lexington. Great Verizon cell & data, and I saw the WI-FI, but we we use Motosat. All in all there are several other local RV spots that looked as good but are much less pricey. Mind you, we did use our PA discount for the noted rate. Sites on the row we were put in were VERY narrow, just enough for slides to go out I sat in chair outside and looked right in the neighbors rig. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This resort is growing every year. Twice as many sites this season and they will double for next season. The pool will be constructed in spring 2011. Huge activity building; part completed with the rest of the interior being completed soon. Spatial, nice sites, planned activities, full services, good management. The gated community has lots for sale, and is beautiful. Lot owners, pad renters and management get along very well, making our stay enjoyable. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice, new, clean park with concrete pads and roads. New management is trying very hard to make it a go. Rate is based on monthly. Very good internet (GTEK $20 a month). Definitely would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is in the process of construction; however, they currently have about 15 sites. In addition there are privately-owned sites available for rent in certain months. The sites and the road are cement, which is rare in this part of Texas. The sites are also very wide. Although the sites are back-in only, they are angled from the road and very easy to back in to. The clubhouse is currently under construction. If a restroom and laundry are important to you, then you should call ahead to see if it's completed. There are also plans for a pool, although construction has not started on this yet. The daily rate reflects the monthly rate of $350 plus electricity. This campground is located between Corpus Christi and Rockport, TX, so there are plenty of activities nearby. We looked at several campgrounds in the area, and almost all have either gravel roads and/or sites, and many have deferred maintenance. Southern Oaks is new and clean. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Brand new park. We stayed a week. We lucked out getting in as the park was almost full. Sites are mostly back-ins but spacious. Plenty of room for our big truck and 36' 5W. Great dog walk area as well as a great park to walk. Really enjoyed our stay and we will return if in the area again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The second best campground we have ever been at and a lot cheaper than the best one. Nice people, nice sites, restrooms, showers, laundry, everything was perfect. If we were interested in spending all our time at one location this would be it. They allowed me to wash my vehicles, trash pickup, Wi-Fi was terrific but we were right across from the office. We were given a spot on very short notice and at a good price. I would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice RV Resort. Lots of activities going on. Nice pool area however, not alway's open, they cover it every night and keep it covered a lot of day's unless you let them know you want to utilize it. Walmart and Lowe's just down the road. Not the best location but sufficient. We camped here for a month in November our 2nd time here. We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One of the very nicest and well laid out parks we have ever stayed in. The staff is very friendly, professional and knowledge. The park is spotless as is the shower and restroom facility. Easy to drive into and plenty of room to maneuver to back in to sites. We were very fortunate to have found this gem! The weekly rate is very economical and a bargain. We will be repeat customers. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We stayed 2 months and enjoyed the park and facilities. Friendly neighbors, and lots of activities. This park is very well kept and the staff do a lot of work to maintain it. Grass is trimmed and edged and watered..trash pickup daily from your site. Good dog walking area. All concrete streets and pads with palm trees at all sites. Only gripe is that the Wi-Fi is spotty and kept dropping off. All the staff were helpful and ready to assist if needed. We plan on returning again in the fall. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent park. Great owners and managers. We have been here since May 2010. The only bad experiences we have witnessed have been caused by the folks who are giving the park negative ratings. I guess if you get asked to leave because of your obnoxious behavior and inability to get along with others it gives you the right to put the park down. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at this park for 3 months. We witnessed domestic violence in the streets. Guest were victims of both physical and verbal abuse. Owners choose to ignore these problems. Avoid this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The reason I am giving them a 2 is because of their reservation system or lack of. Called for reservations for 3 rigs and was called back with a confirmation of available sites. A few days later I recalled to be sure that it was OK for fifth wheels since on website they claim they are a "motor coach" park. Was then told "no problem, we accept fifth wheels." Next day I received a call from a person who wanted to know why I called and when I explained she then claimed to have only one available site for the date requested even though our reservation for 3 sites had been previously confirmed. Had to make alternate arrangements to go to a different park. At least we didn't arrive with all 3 rigs to find out that they didn't have enough available sites even though they had previously confirmed them. It appears that the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a new very nicely landscaped and maintained RV park. Laundry and restrooms/showers are very nice and kept clean. The clubhouse is user friendly and larger than most RV parks have. Managers and owners are friendly and work to make this the best park possible addressing problems when they occur. The heated pool and hot tub have a covered patio and are great. There are many planned activities for us Winter Texans if you choose to participate. Sites are available in different widths and lengths with concrete pads and roads. Shopping, ship and dolphin watching, beach walking and fishing are all near by. Friendly RVer's make you feel at home. We'll be back next winter! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent park. We paid $125 for the week. The park has concrete pads for parking on, well kept landscaping of palm trees, thick grass, and rock. The staff was so friendly and helpful. It is evident the owners have put a lot of planning, time, and energy into this park. (It was fun joining them at Karaoke night!) The bathrooms and showers were beautifully tiled and clean. There was also a spacious laundry room. The clubhouse had activities going on daily, and they supported a good Wi-Fi connection. We were able to wash our RV on site at no cost. Our four children enjoyed walking the dog to the pet area, singing karaoke, and the ice cream social. The location allowed us to get our supplies at Walmart, visit the ocean, see the USS Lexington, and shop at Corpus Christi. We thank them for such a welcoming stay. We were only there for a week, but already feel like part of the family. We would definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice new park. Very clean. Nice laundry and private baths. Management very accommodating and easy to work with. Owners very nice. Work campers very helpful and friendly. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is new, beautiful and facilities well maintained by work campers. The fall of this park will be the owners, as the managers are managers only in name, for the owners (not RV people) interject into the management as they see fit, for their own personal gratification, overriding their managers decisions. Rules are made at will and changed or applied differently between renters. Decisions are made and then changed and changed yet again. These people lack any of the people or administration skills needed to manage this park and should get qualified managers and then step back and let the managers do the job they have been hired to do (very basic business principle). A group of some 15 couples moved to this park last season (09/10) during construction based on the physical properties it would yield when completed. We arrived this season (10/11) to find the physical facilities complete and thought we had finally found nirvana … but alas, things quickly changed. The activity building is small for the number of renters, with very bad acoustics. The pool is finished but not heated. There are a number of young families living in the park that work in the local labor pool, so you need to be very cautious driving – even riding your bike. The Wi-Fi seems to work well, some times but it’s impossible to depend on. We went to our broadband card in frustration. Not comfortable in this park and will not return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean very well managed a lot of activities we had a blast. The next trip to Texas we will return. All sites are level and concrete it is almost new so the trees haven't had time to grow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New park, officially opened in February and was quickly filled. Has all concrete streets and sites, new sod and palm trees between sites. Presently adding 40 additional sites. Great rates and sounds like reservations for 2010 winter season are filled, but there are a number of summer sites available. Great owners and managers, and have a really good staff of Workampers assisting. All hard surface access streets and it's close to Supercenter Wal-Mart, HEB grocery, bay fishing and the island activities, but far enough away from the gulf and its salt spray. Easy access to hwy 35 to go to Rockport/Fulton or Corpus. Without a doubt, one of the nicer parks in the area with single, one and a half and double wide sites, it is not crowded like most of the parks in the area. As fulltimers, we will make this our homebase. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park officially opened in Jan 2010. We were there during construction, and all efforts were made to make us comfortable. Great owners and even better managers! All concrete 50, 60 or 70 foot sites, some double wide, with all concrete roads. Immaculate. All palm trees, maybe 12 foot high. I like trees, but this is almost as good. Activities and lots to see in Aransas Pass and adjoining communities plus fishing in the gulf only 10 minutes away. They are adding another section this summer so there will be something like 45 new sites in fall 2010, mostly double wides. This is a first class operation mostly for 5th wheelers and Motorhomes of Winter Texans. We are going back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
