Nice clean park with wide concrete sites. Our back-in was just long enough for our 42' 5th wheel but the width gave us plenty of room to park the truck. Free wi-fi, no cable ( but satellite worked great), picnic table, free laundry and very spacious. Lots of open areas with pavilions and picnic tables. Plenty of room to walk the dog or ride your bike. Small commissary and exchange on base. Can be windy and foggy since you are right on the water. Great location to visit Padre Island or the USS Lexington. - travelswithpuppies

Beautiful park right on the water with the safety and security of base. Sites are wide enough that you can park your vehicle next to your rig. Interior roads were easy to maneuver, and there were no obstructions to hinder backing into sites. Laundry is FREE. Additionally, within walking distance, at the Navy Inns and Suits is a Community Center, where you can reserve a theater room and play one of their DVDs on the big screen, complete with popcorn that they pop for you, all for free. There is also a game room, and video game room with games for the kids to check out. This was a huge hit for our kids. There are a lot of full-time residents in the park. There are actually two sections of the park, on either side of the road. The Famcamp office is at the Marina. Easy to get through the main gate with even a big fifth wheel like ours. No shade at all, so I'm sure it will get hot in the summer. We would definitely return. - RVerFamily

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 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

Close to Padre Island and many restaurants plus points of interest. Great staff! The park is older and has many permanent residents who seem to be courteous and patient with us short timers. The spaces are close together but pull thru. No views of the water areas that surround this part of Corpus Christi however, take the quick trip to Padre Island and the National Seashore for spectacular views. Once inside the park, it felt other worldly with natural dunes, grasses, wildlife and very people friendly beaches. We had a private picnic complete with a shade lean to and picnic table. The older RV park is worth being close to the island. - AZ Retired Traveler

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

We liked this campground so much that we returned for a second stay. As mentioned by other reviewers, this is a parking lot format campground that we've seen in other Texas State Parks. The beach on the Gulf is a short walk away or you can drive or bicycle. The beach is really beautiful. The sites have water, electricity, and "shaded" picnic tables. The camp host was very helpful. The nearest grocery stores are 20 minutes away toward Port Aransas or Corpus Christi. Both Port A and CC are worth a visit. Gorgeous Padre Island National Seashore is just 15 minutes away. This campground is hard to get into during the weekends in the Spring, but we found that there are sites available during mid-week. If you buy a Texas State Park annual pass, you get half off your 3rd night stay for several stays, as well as free entry to the park for each day. Our pass paid for itself in no time. When you reserve a campsite online, they charge you for just one night, even if you are reserving for more than one night. - ShoreXplorers

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

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

This is an older park that has the spaces very close together. The value is very good for the location on Padre Island very close to the beach. All there is between you and the beach is the sand dunes, about a hundred yards. This is a county park and the county is in the process of building a new addition to the park with the sites much further apart. However, their plan for the new section is double the price of what you pay now. The staff tells me that the county intends to keep the old section open at a lesser price. - Mark Ford

Old and worn down. No view of ocean, sand dune separates you from the beach. Park is under renovation. Walking distance to the beach. Potholes. - Mleeder

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

Very nice park. Price reflects weekly rate plus electric. WiFi worked very well. Place was clean and nice. Laundry was $2 each and worked well. Nice walkway to the beach. - Chuck McC

Very nice RV resort. Large, well-landscaped sites with concrete and stone pavers. Many sites have fireplaces, tables and other improvements. Sites are pull thru, pull in or back in depending on location. Nice boardwalk/ramp over dune to the beach. In looking at other parks in Port Aransas, this one appeared the better option especially if you want the beach nearby. - Allure470

Thought this might help owners of longer RVs trying to decide on staying here. We were here in Jan 18, after most of the hurricane reparations were completed. We are in a 43' Class A motorhome, and stayed in pull-through site #455. Even though the sites are advertised as "pull-through", longer RVs won't be able to drive into these pads and be straight the first time - backing and re-entering will be necessary. You'll probably find that the other vehicles (cars, trucks, golf carts) parked in front and behind the adjoining sites will complicate entry and departure from your "pull-through" site. To depart our site, the people next door had to move their "golf cart" out of our way, and we had to drive across the grass in their space to get onto the road. Then, we decided to back out to depart the area. - racklefratz

The first night we were given a premium back-in which was very nice, except for the constant parade of golf carts. Site was concrete with good utilities. Nice grass between sites and spacious. We had to move and was given a standard pull-thru for two nights. That was so objectionable. Site was gravel and extremely close to neighbors. Utilities were acceptable, interior road OK but watch out for the golf carts. It was like the L.A. freeways. The bath house was clean and each lockable shower room had a restroom area. Lots of permanent residents, which are easily identifiable. At check-in, I gave my credit and Good Sam card but the rate didn't reflect the discount. Returned to the office to question the missing discount and was told I would have received the discount if I had shown my Good Sam card. After a little discussion, I was given a credit for the discount. A very large CG and needs a map just to find the exit. Would stay here again, but never, never, never in a standard pull thru. - SD75mac

Great experience year after year. It *is* pricey, IMO, given the walk required to get to the beach, and the restrictions on golf carts. More or less everyone here has a golf cart. They were flexible with us when we wanted to stay an extra day by allowing us to move our trailer to another spot. Kind of a pain, but I understand they have a booking system.
Restrooms and showers were clean. Sites were a concrete pad and had a picnic table. All in all, a decent place that we have stayed at before, and will again. - chrislachance

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
