Our first stay here and our first time purchasing the Texas annual pass for $70. My husband was skeptical, but we did save money. Our second night was half price ($12.50) because of the pass. We were able to upgrade to a FHU site and although we did not have a view of the lake, it was only a short walk away. Enjoyed walking the trails, saw deer and lots of birds and sitting under our cozy quiet ramada. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Motorhome.

Rate does not include 10. Park entrance fee for 2 people. Very beautiful park with nice circular drive type pull thrus. We stayed at site 37 with just a sliver of a view of the lake. Since this was just an overnight it wasn't an issue but there are pull thrus across from the lake up on a slight hill.
Sites are very spacious and no issue with getting satellite. We will be staying here again on another overnight for our return trip north. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Even though you are 45 min from Corpus Christi we took the drive to see the beautiful waterfront and buy fresh fish (flounder) from the fish store at the marina.
Also highly recommend a further drive (10-12mi. From Bayfront) to Paul's Seafood Market where we picked up P&D gulf shrimp, grouper fillets and snapper fillets.

The campsites are small. We have only a 30' motorhome and it took 3 campsites to find one level and large enough for us. The concrete pads they have are for small RV's and the surrounding asphalt is broken up. The view is of the other campers in the loop. Instead of a bathroom per loop, you have to walk to a 'central' bathroom. First time I did a short cut but the sandburs were terrible (no paths to the bathroom). The walk on the road is long to the bathrooms. Showers were in bad shape. Plus these are the type you have to change in front of everyone then take a shower in a stall with a curtain that covers half the opening. Internet is very sporadic and slow. TV reception is OK. Verizon 4G is good. Hiking paths are very limited. No ranger programs during the 2 weeks we were there. Unless you have a boat, this isn't a great park. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Motorhome.

We spent a weekend in the full hookup Javalina Loop. The sites were large and well maintained. All were semicircular pull-through. It was a short walk to the lake, which has a very new-looking fishing pier. We enjoed watching the deer, green jays, and water fowl. This is a very large spread-out park with lots of camping options. Along the shore are many picnic tables, many with awnings. I have lived in South Texas for a long time and can't belief I've never visited this beautiful park! We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Corpus Christi State Park near Mathis, TX. We camped in site 39. The loop offers water, 50/30/20 electric and sewer, pull through sites at $20/night. Nice CCC structures in the park. Good shade. We would stay here again. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites here are a little close but we did meet friendly neighbors. There was a lot of trash in the brush behind our campsite. The cardinals, green jays, and squirrels were entertaining. There are no bike trails in the park but plenty of paved roads to ride on. They are in the planning stage for bike and nature trails. Lake Corpus Christi is down about 26 feet according to the locals. Mathis is close by and has an HEB grocery. We had lunch at Smolink's BBQ and thought it was very good.

Good experiences. We had an awesome spot; however, due to no rain in Texas, there was no water to enjoy. We had plenty of room outside and enjoyed the full hookup. There was an HEB nearby to shop, but unfortunately not a lot else to do, but it was very relaxing and just hung out. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

All RV sites are pull-through, no internet, showers in the full hook-up loop but no showers in the E/W loop, 1 dump station, tent camping. Sites are not necessarily level even though they all have concrete slabs. All sites have a picnic table (most covered) and ground level BBQ/fire pit combo. Interior roads are paved and in excellent condition. $16/N for E/W, $20/N for E/W/S, plus $4/day/person park access fee. As the campground surrounds a lake, fishing (no license), biking, swimming and canoe/kayaking (no rentals) are possible. In the village of Mathis (5 miles) there is a small HEB grocery store as well as gas stations that sell diesel; Corpus Christi is a 45 min drive. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Full Hook-up sites are limited in number when all are available to campers but unfortunately 4 of the sites are occupied by Park Hosts. These sites are all pull throughs which the majority of RVs (40 feet or less) can get into without difficulty. There are miles of paved roads that you can ride your bike on which I really enjoyed. There are many access points to the lake which has dropped significantly due to the drought. The park is close to Mathis where you can buy the essentials. Corpus Christi is about 30 minutes drive away. Be aware that there is a $4 per person per day fee on top of the camping fee; we are TX State Park Pass holders so this fee did not apply. We would camp here again. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park. Great for biking and all water sports. Able to have a campfire. About 45 minutes to Corpus Christi which was a drive. Price is $20 to camp, but have to pay additional $8 a day for 2 people. Usually park entrance fees are for 3 to 10 days. So even though it was full hookup, was surprised at the extra cost. Not too much in the immediate area. Would return to park if staying put. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is very nice, the setting is beautiful by the lake, and the pull-thru sites are long and spacious. As someone else mentioned, the sand spurs are a real problem - we had a big open field right behind our site, but our dogs couldn't go anywhere near it without getting their feet covered in sand spurs. My only other issue with this campground is that you are not only charged for the campsite, but also the entrance fees for the park for each camper for each day you are there - I've never heard of this in a state park before. We'd probably still stay there again when in the area. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Motorhome.

Just a warning to anybody with a large dog. This park is covered in sand spurs and we ended up having to re-hitch and move on as there was nowhere we could walk the dog. She took four steps and we then spent 30 minutes pulling the thorns out of her paws. We were sad as the park and lake looked absolutely beautiful and not at all crowded, but there was no way the dog could even walk from the rig to the road (about 15 feet) so we left. I'm rating it as if we had stayed without a dog but just thought dog-owners should be aware. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We only stayed one night and had a water and electric, pull through site near the lake. It was a bit on the small side. More restrooms are needed for the campground. It was off season, but nice area. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects Texas State Park Pass ($60).Good deal if staying at a State Park more than 6X a year. Park is clean and quite nice. Good Verizon signals and great for walking or biking. It's everything they advertise as most Texas Parks are. Plus free fishing, no license required, at any Texas State Park. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice state park with access to Lake Corpus Christi. Staff was very friendly and helpful The park was not very busy during the week but by Saturday when we left the campsites were full and day sites were filling up. Definitely a popular place with good reason. Enjoyed our visit. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Travel Trailer.
