We stayed here for six months while on temporary assignment at NAS Corpus Christi. It's a nice campground with long, level concrete pads. The laundry room was always clean and they mow the grass regularly. No shade at all. The WiFi was outstanding, probably the best I've ever encountered in a campground. Other campers, especially the long term campers, were very friendly. The wind never stops blowing, but otherwise, it was a good place to stay and we would definitely return. - Josh H

We just spent three days at Shields Park NAS Recreation Area and enjoyed it very much. Nice and quiet, great location with access to all the base facilities as well as the City of Corpus Christi and the beach. Had no problems and the staff was excellent. Lots of space between sites and the grass was well maintained with no (well, very few) stickers. Everything was well maintained and very clean. Only very minor criticism is that the 30-amp sites are small, some are head-in and drive out across the grass. A few of them have the hookups in awkward places. Not really a problem, just awkward. Next time I'll ask for a 50 amp site and pay the extra $3. A few sites did appear to be long-term tenants, but were very well kept. Also, while the big fishing pier is still closed, there is a smaller pier across from the MWR office. Don't forget your pet's shot records. - Hill Country

Very nice campground at the end of Ocean Drive. All sites are back-in right on the bay. There are a few palm trees, but all sites are sunny and have full access to receive satellite TV. The sites are concrete and 50-feet long. They are wide enough for a 45-foot RV and a car. The only complaint I have being the management does not inforce their own rules. Many of the sites are homesteaded, with three vehicles and boats parked at the sites. By the rules I had to sign, this is not allowed. If you want to stay somewhere near the water, and a quiet place to relax, this is the place for you. - Big Blue

We have been full timers here for the past 3 years. We have stayed because the lots are more spacious than most, we have no way of moving our trailer, like our neighbors & are close to grocery stores, etc. That said we are more unhappy with the management with every passing day. Absolutely nothing is done in the way of upkeep & it becomes more obvious as time passes & things all around are deteriorating. The laundry has 6 washers & 3 dryers but one by one the washers have gone out of order until now of the original 6 only 2 remain in service. As of a few days ago the showers were put "out of order" with no explanation or as to whether they will ever be opened up or not. When I inquired of the office the reply was very vague & little attention was given to my concern. If you are willing to sacrifice any kind of dependable amenities for the sake of spacious lots this is the place but don't expect any kind of consideration beyond that. The management attitude is "take it or leave it but don't bother us about anything". Also, every few months you will have another stack of rules stuck on your door but none of it is ever enforced. If it gets any worse we will be moving if we can find someone to move us. - bill hale

We leave our RV in the park and pay full monthly rent, and visit several times a year. It was a lovely park and so serene. The last 2 church managers which owns the park have not done anything to maintain it, --the potholes are awful, most sites aren't rent-able as they have not maintained the electric in between occupants. They have opened it up to Section 8. it is no longer 55+ so serene is out the window and has been replaced with obnoxious kids and rude teens, which bring the police and shots fired. The office is not helpful nor cares a thing about a good service for you. They are doing you a favor. Run from this place! - fyste

The park is open. I stayed there and wrote a review in Feb 2007. I visited friends staying here in Feb and March 2012. Big grassy lots, concrete patios, nice rec room, many evening activities, stayed one month plus as a Winter Texan (cost $275.00 + electric at 0.14 cents per KWH). Walking distance (about 1/2 mile) to Walmart, HEB (grocery store), Post Office and several other stores. Surrounding neighborhood is a bit challenged, but found it to be very safe. Located at the entrance to the Corpus Christi Air Naval Station and you get the "sounds of freedom" (aircraft) at times (music to my ears). Several miles to the outer beach, fishing piers, and Padre Island National Sea Shore. I enjoyed the campground, mostly friendly retired folks spending the winter. I will probably return for a repeat performance. - Douglas traveler

The park is small, dirty, and sits next to the sewage treatment plant. I have a 39 ft. 5th wheel and my truck is 27 feet long. I was placed in a 45 foot RV pad at the end of the center section. I had no room to park except to place my tow-vehicle behind my RV turned sideways. The management came and told me I could park there. I moved to another spot that did not interfere with any one or thing. This time they sent a fat tall guy to tell me to move my truck and intimidate me. This is a trash dump run by the worst managers of any RV park. Do not even consider staying here. - FireChief

The park is small and dirty. We were there 15 days and there were areas where trash lay the entire time. It is located next to a wastewater treatment facility and we had to drive through a questionable neighborhood to get to the park. It does not look like the pictures posted on their website. Management was sometimes unfriendly and impolite. Would not stay here again. We are full time RV'ers and left early due to issues previously stated. - Retiredandontheroad

Will never stay here again. This park is not really big rig friendly. The sites are very narrow and with the slides out you are encroaching on your neighbors. Some of the units used by long term residents were showing their age, and the sites were not very tidy. There was absolutely nothing appealing about the tiny pool. If you try hard enough; you can see the fishing pier, but because of the fence; it is about a 4 block walk to get there.
The closest neighbors to the park are a small horse farm and the sewage treatment plant. I stayed in Feb., I can only imagine the stench in the warmer months. The people in the neighborhood are not a problem, but you will need a car to get anywhere.
I left early and parked on the beach in Port Aransas. - Buddy Bus

Two night stay, stayed due to other reviews. Hit the nail on the head. Good service. Accompanied us to our site, drive through. Nearly full campground. Did make reservations due to snow birds. Used restrooms late at night, still very clean, not perfect, but still clean. Easy to use, hooks, chair, separate shower from sink toilet area, very large. Easy to get to Padre Island or back to Corpus. Would stay here again. - davidmsparks

Just correcting information on this site. I arrived on 1/5. They don't take reservations for monthly stays per se, so I had to begin paying for my site the minute there was an opening (December 30).
The amenities listed here show that there is a hot tub and fitness center. I was actually really looking forward to both of those amenities. When we arrived, we found there is no fitness center and we were directed to buy a membership at a local gym. On the other hand, the people are really friendly. The shower building nearest my site is very nice and clean. We are minutes from tons of shopping and restaurants. The wifi actually works at our site and the cable is plug and play. - Ferrero16

Big rig friendly with level sites. Showers, laundry, and wifi were good. Campground was flat and good place to ride bicycle and walk dog. Many activities in the park including karaoke, pot luck dinners, weekly breakfast, and card games. People were very friendly. Very quiet without traffic or train. Dog park was very dirty where people did not pick up after their dog and my dog would not use it. - Fulltimersrv

Okay. Now I can say been there, done that. Stayed for 3 nights. Campground is walking distance to the gulf beach, but that's the main asset for this park. Water and electric are shared between sites. We had to pull in to have connections on the right side and site was so narrow that we couldn't open one of the slides. The front of our coach faced the front of our neighbour's. They were never there so no big deal but if they had been a noisy bunch, would have been very disagreeable. If you go, pick even number site on the gulf side. Except for one exception, front office staff are there because they need a job, not because they like being nice to campers. - Voyageurs

facilities were ok, spaces are somewhat close together good 50amp service and water with a dump station at the entrance. 10 minute walk to the beach. It is unfortunate that the employee that checked us in wasn't very friendly and was very abrupt. I gave up asking questions because she acted like she was irritated. Texas state parks should have folks with friendly attitudes to check people in. We will probably go to the national seashore camping area next time. - rjsupersonic

Like other reviewers have mentioned, this is parking lot type camping. The sites are super close together and there is no privacy. Many sites end up being like buddy sites where your outdoor living area is somewhat shared with a neighbor. We were very blessed to get the best site at the park which is site #48. That site is on the end with no neighbor on the outdoor living side so it was wonderful! I don't think we would have enjoyed our stay quite as much if we had been in one of the other sites. You can hear the ocean from the campground, but can't see it. It's a short walk to the beach. We were there for 2 weeks and it was so windy almost the entire time we were there. Padre Island National Seashore is only about 15 minutes south and Port Aransas is about 15 minutes north. It's a great location for visiting both of those areas. Verizon data worked well there, and the check-in staff was very friendly. - Love2Camp777

We stayed in this Park for three nights and over-priced for what you get. The sites are too small. The road in front of the storage building has huge holes that need filling. The Park seems to constantly smell of sewer!! I wondered why all the trailers had their windows closed?? Would not recommend it. - MFLethbridge

Their website is very deceiving. It looks really nice. This park is not nice by any stretch of the imagination. We had reserved 2 sites for 2 nights and after seeing it, we decided not to stay. It's small, unkept and looks like a very old trailer park. There's not even enough room to open slides comfortably. Would never stay here and never recommend it. Avoid this place like the plague! Extremely disappointed. - Cfvalk

Basically this place is a field with water, sewer, and electrical hookups. The office worker was smoking a cigarette when we arrived at about 2 p.m. on a weekday. She never stopped smoking the whole time I spoke with her. The rates are high compared to other places in the area, so we moved on. She saw my husband and five year old and with an unpleasant tone said, "There's a max of two people here," so it's definitely not family-friendly. Not a place we'll ever consider. - 6thGenerationTexan

I was scheduled to camp at Mustang Island, but they called me the day of and said their power was out due to a storm. They recommended Padre Balli.
I did not realize that the sites were only 30 amp, so that was a bummer. Also, the weather was 30 MPH winds, so that made our beach days miserable. (obviously not the camps fault)
It seems that this park has fallen into disrepair and they are doing a tax increase to try and bring it back. There are some overgrown parking lots that possible used to be campsites. there is a vacant building that possibly used to be the office?
The office is clean and nice and on stilts, so be prepared for a long ramp or stairs.
The beach is nice, clean, and has picnic table, but the sand is pretty compact. There is a restaurant and pier. It costs to go out on the pier.
The campsites are broken asphalt with two sites kissing. Hookups in the middle with two tables. One for you, one for your neighbor. The ranger just told us to choose which side we wanted to face and pull in that way. Pull through sites.
The dunes were very tall. You cannot see or walk over them. There is a path on the far side of the campground or you can walk up by the office to get to the beach. The dunes do help cut back on the wind.
The shower houses were cinder block construction, but it is starting to crumble. The showers have been lined with that plastic wall stuff and wood slats on the floors, but you can see black mold in places. The showers were hot and high pressure. Great after a cold beach day. - mmette00

Basically a parking lot with hookups (no sewer, dump station on lot). You can't see the water but the big dunes really cut down on the wind, which blows a lot. Very nice area on the beach with tables and partial shade, huge pier also there. Staff very helpful and friendly. Spaces can get a little tight if there are several big rigs near you. - susy1313

Found the electrical plug at our site burnt. The park maintenance person was very helpful and stayed late to change it out. The asphalt surface it getting in very bad shape. - Bahama

Beautiful and well maintained luxury rv resort...service is excellent with great beach access...pool and hot tub were clean and inviting...every site was being groomed or well maintained...this is an ownership park with many sites that are custom tailored with stamped concrete, pavilions, outside kitchens, fire pits and more. - Cruise1

We stayed here for about a week over spring break. I can't really find anything bad about the place. All concrete pads. Sites are level. Easy access maneuvering about the campground. Sights are enormous and many already come with covered sinks and picnic tables. This is not a campground but truly a resort. Pools were immaculate. Hot tub clean. Bathrooms were spotless. There is a requirement on Motorhome age and size so be wary of that. Wifi was excellent. Campground is 6 miles out of town. You can access town via a beach road or highway. Access to the beach was easy. By far, one of the nicest, if not the nicest, campground I have stayed at. Only complaint I can make is that sight 701 is near the office and a higher traffic area. Had to corral kids out of the road very often. Beach is huge and not maintained near the campground. You can drive on the beach however and even have beach campfires if you wish. The beaches that are maintained are closer to town but accessible as well if you take the golf cart ride that way. Loved this place. I would highly recommend this campground. It is well worth the price and I would suspect that as this area builds up, the price will go up with it. - mm1407

Truly a resort in all sense of the word. Gulf Waters is the perfect (and by far, the nicest) place to stay in the Port Aransas area, beginning with the office staff. We can't rave enough about these friendly and helpful people, who go above and beyond to accommodate the residents and guests. Connected to the office is a large community center. Laundry/shower facilities, a large beautiful pool, and the hottest spa (wonderful!!!) we have encountered at any resort in our travels complete the office complex. Wide concrete streets connect long, wide concrete pads with tropical landscaping (owner lots which are available to rent when not being used by the owners). There are four ponds within the borders of the resort, so many of the sites are along one of these ponds. From our site (#448), we looked out onto a turtle and fish-filled pond with dunes in the background. Couldn't ask for a more relaxing site! From the resort, there is beach access by way of a private boardwalk/bridge over the dunes. Once out onto the beach, it is a very nice 5.5 mile bike ride [or golf-cart drive (available for rent)] to the town of Port Aransas and its many tourist shops and restaurants. Port A is a 10-minute drive via the highway. About a half-hour drive in the opposite direction is Corpus Christi. It is also a half-hour drive to Padre Island National Seashore. - HRTravelers

About 70 percent seasonal campers, a lot are snowbirds. Campground started emptying out the end of April. Charged for cable and washing RV. About a 0.5 mile walk from the campsite to the beach. Try to camp on the road that leads to the boardwalk. No rental golf carts allowed, but just about everyone else had one. - Bburgbrewer

We were here during Sand fest. From the time we pulled in and we're greeted in the check in area to the time we had to say goodbye, we were amazed. We were escorted to our site by a host. I remember because he gave our puppy a treat. We got set up in out pull thru site which was spacious and spotless. I only went into one of the shower houses and it was very clean for late in the day. There's 2 pools and a spa. I saw there was a large dog run along the entrance to the beach boardwalk. They have a large clubhouse that was being used for a rally. In closing, great staff, exceptionally clean for being full. A definite come back to. Thanks for the dog treats. - YngRvrs

Nice park, the biggest attraction for us was the boardwalk access to the beach. Sites were roomy, level with easy access to the services. Lots of activities for those who wish to join in. Disappointed that the pool was not heated & the hot tub was not working for part of the time we were there. Good free wifi. Town is five minutes down the road but unfortunately do to construction you could not ride your bike. - Our-Wandering-Casa

I agree with one of the other reviews- go somewhere else. It is very loud here with trash/junk scattered around other sites. The woman at the desk seems to put people in the sites closest to the freeway with obstructed views even though there were better sites available. - Pukie

Go somewhere else. The only positive about this park is the bay view. The roads in the park were more mud than gravel. After being directed to a site, we discovered fire ants around the drain. We requested another site and were directed to another. After about three hours, we were asked to move back to the original site, because of a "clerical error". We told management there we other site available and were told they were booked. Three days later, the empty sites were still empty. - burk travelers

This park is not what the web site implies. It's dirty, cramped, "low" class, junky, just an old unkempt "fishing" camp. Junky trailers, just uuk! We decided not to stay as we had made reservations for a week. It cost us a day's charge but well worth the loss. Just as we arrived I think a motorhome had made the same decision; older couple seemed to be shocked. - User2704
