This is a great spot if your plans are to be on the water. Kayak, boat launch or even just wading in. City water and full hookups right on the water. I haven't seen a site that can get your camper closer to salt water than this place!
I stayed here for a month. Just me and my back packing equipment. Just beautiful.
This park was not as great as we thought it would be. We stayed for a week and even with restrictions they did have their pool open for much of the time we were there. It’s a small pool and not one to write home about, but it was open.
The location is good. Although there are branches to watch on the road in and at the entrance to the park, they are located right on the bay. It’s got a beautiful view and you can see Corpus Christi from across the way, which is neat. Due to the location though, bring bug spray! We got eaten up by the mosquitoes even with bug spray - they are huge and there’s a ton of them!
The spots are another beast though. We have a 40 ft class a and we weren’t sure we were going to fit. They are skinny and short. We barely fit our rig and truck in. The spots put you very close to your neighbor. Probably the closest we’ve ever been. And the ants are terrible. We ended up having an infestation of fire ants in our water bay that we’re currently trying to get rid of. There are ants all over the park. Be careful where you step and bring diatomaceous earth and fire ant killer to sprinkle around.
We stayed here in a 40' fifth wheel for 2 winters. Loved the area . Driving distance to Corpus, Port Aransas, Padre, Victoria, King ranch, We visited all these places. Right next to Corpus Christi Lake & park. It has Gravel roads but they are good roads. Speed bumps (and a very alert security) keep the traffic at a good speed limit. The staff is great for scheduling entertainment, outings, cleaning, & security. Bathrooms, showers, laundry are up to date & clean. Very nice game room, meeting area, and kitchen. Fast Food and Restaurants are approx 6mi. Overall we loved this place and the staff! We stayed longterm, 4mo at a time. Prices are good, Daily, weekly, monthly.
The park itself doesn’t have much to do as they are still recovering and renovating from Hurricane Harvey a couple of years ago(this was my rationale for a lower rating). Having said this,it’s a great park and I highly recommend it and we would surely return. The bathrooms are above average, clean with nice showers. Our campsite was nice and shady with a picnic table and water. We saw deer and one snake (too quick to identify it). We hiked the trail in the park which was nice and well maintained. The next town over is Rockport which has million dollar mansions on the water. We rented a kayak for half day and kayaked in and out of the canals gawking at the boats and houses. There is a bird sanctuary on the island in little bay where we kayaked and in addition to all the birds we saw two dolphins swimming around. We were close enough to port Aransas to drive over and took the ferry (had to stay in the vehicle due to corona virus). We ate seafood at our favorite seafood restaurant “Snoopys”.
We stayed here for one night while visiting Padres Island. We were not here long enough to see everything about the place. Our site overlooked a nature sanctuary which gave us a nice private place to view the sun set. The bathrooms were exceptionally clean. We spoke briefly to someone working in the office. They were very helpful and professional. Check in and out were problem free. I would stay here again.
While the lake is beautiful,the park feels neglected. Our campsite #64 in the catfish cove campground was awful, not sure when they had last mowed, there were stickers/cockle burrs everywhere. We spent time pulling as many of those and high grass as we could,but still got them all in our shoes and socks. The shelter over the picnic table had many bird nests and the picnic table was nasty. The bathrooms were ok, the shower curtains had mold/mildew. We hiked the catfish point trail which had not been maintained. We went through the online process to rent a kayak, had some problems which were easily resolved.
