Price reflects weekly rate. We totally agree with previous reviews. This is a great and clean park with plenty of space. All sites are beautiful with many facing a pond for a view. The sites closer to the road are obviously a little more noisy but not intolerable. Sites can accommodate any size RV. There is a swimming pool but few other activities. The landscaping around the sites is one of the best we have found in MOST RV parks. We will stay here again when in the area. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If coming from the east definitely go through Aransas Pass and take the free ferry. The ferry can accommodate any size RV and we did NOT have to disconnect our tow vehicle. It is a shorter distance and you will not have to go through Corpus Christi.

The park is nicely situated on the Gulf Coast with a walkway onto the beach. Site had plenty of room as it was built specifically for large motorhomes. We stayed on site 750, located on a lake and close to the beach. Facilities worked well although water pressure was a bit low but no problem. They had water restrictions while we were there but allowed motorhome and care washing one day a week. We stayed two weeks and staff were friendly and helpful. There was house construction occurring at the end of the park which made some construction noise during the day but not terrible. We would stay here again. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If coming from the east, one can get to Port Aransas by using the ferry at Aransas Pass. The car must be disconnected, ferry is free. This area is wintering area for Whooping Cranes and saw a large group while we were there.

Gulf Waters is a lovely RV park. Clean, nice sized sites with palm trees and nice landscaping. Lots of the sites are on ponds. The boardwalk to the beach is new and well maintained. The beach is beautiful. From looking around this is the nicest spot on the island and worth the money. The rate quoted is for a month. Most of the spots have patio tables. The WiFi was excellent as well as the cell coverage. The staff was friendly and helpful. They are in the process of building a rec hall and bathrooms with showers. This park has mostly retirees. Very safe and well lit. We will definitely go back. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Driving to a discount grocery store like HEB is a hike...20 plus miles but the IGA in Port Aransas has most of what you need. No worries about taking the ferry from Port Aransas to Aransas Pass as it accommodates all rigs and is free. It can be very busy during spring break though. Lots of really good places to eat in both Port Aransas and Corpus Christi.

Stayed here for two months and thoroughly enjoyed the park and the people. The location on Mustang Island was excellent. The negatives included poor WiFi service (had to actually buy a booster component), no trash pick up, and no clubhouse/fitness room on site. For an owner-type park, these services are normally provided. The positives included: very nice lots, landscaping and wide sites with excellent proximity to the beach. The weather in the winter is windy, rainy and you will find it difficult to keep your rig clean. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The local IGA in Port Aransas is okay, but all major shopping is done off the island in Corpus Christi (~25 miles away). The local community playhouse theatre in PA is usually very good. Lots of restaurants in PA. The library in PA was a hidden treasure and the folks very accommodating.

This is a beautiful resort and after looking around, it just may be the nicest on the island. Wifi is among the best we've ever seen while traveling. The new boardwalk over the dunes to the beach is great. Roads are wide and the sites are superb. I expect this place will be perfectly fine for most people. We had two issues that drove our rating and both result from management/owners business policies. First, we made reservations back in April of this year. At some point the website was updated with a new price effective October 1st. I expected to receive the price listed when we made the reservation but we were charged the prevailing price. Second, my wife has a medical condition that makes restroom access with very short notice an important feature. Based on an earlier review, we understood that there are only two bathrooms on the property. What we didn’t know is that they are located inside the welcome center which is locked from 10 p.m. to 8:30 a.m. We were told that the building gets locked due to vandalism at some point in the past. The welcome center has a cipher lock so I requested access for my wife as it seemed a reasonable approach to the problem. We were quoted the owners policy of locking the building and that was the way it was left. It did not appear that any effort was made to find a solution. We would not stay here in the future. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We were not told when we called in the reservation there is a separate charge for electricity. We may have not chosen to stay because of it & I feel it's part of the overall rate and it's dishonest to not state all charges. When we checked in we weren't given any procedure about the meter either. Didn't receive a notice about the bill and amount til after we had left. And the rate is very high, at least 3 times what they pay a utility. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Not much to fault about the is resort. Immaculate surroundings in the park. Lots are over sized, nice grass around sites and all roads and sites are paved. If you do have an older RV 10+ years you probably won't be able to stay here. Most of the lots are privately owned and rented out by Gulf Waters. Lots of vegetation between the lots to give a sense of privacy. The upgraded boardwalk to the beach was needed and is nice. Large enough to to accommodate some of the largest golf carts.Management is friendly as well. Now onto some of the cons, the reason this place doesn't get five stars: 1. The pool is really small and at the front of the resort, the hot tub is tiny as well. Really needs to be another pool on the other side of the resort in my opinion. This one gets crowded. 2. There are only two restrooms, by the pool...that's not a biggie but there are only two showers as well, enclosed with the restrooms. So if you're at the pool and gotta..."go" and the showers are being used, there's an issue. If there is another restroom it is not available or mentioned. 3. Now this is big one, (reason it doesn't get 10). When we go to the beach we rent a cart, there are four of us. Gulf Waters makes you use this specific company, or I'd type this on their review, and they have some problems. We went through three carts before we got one that started consistently. The one we finally got, the hill brake did not work. The carts die and need to be choked to be started, then the owner tells us we are, "flooding" the carts. C'mon pal I know what I'm doing. We stopped at a red light and it wouldn't start in traffic. We encountered an elderly couple walking in from the beach, they were furious. She saw the emblem on our cart and started ranting. She told us how she was stranded miles down the beach, and called the "After Hours" phone number on the cart because it wouldn't start...the story was really long and we listened, she was really stressed and needed to get this off her chest. Then she used the same terminology the owner of the cart rentals used, "You're flooding it". Be warned of this place, the cart might work, but it might also leave you stranded with no help. Our cart was a four seater, rented for four days...$632.00 for those four days. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Loved this park! The front desk was extremely helpful. The park is beautiful and well maintained, the maintenance personnel were very helpful and courteous. The only "complaint", if we had one, was that the boardwalk to the beach was closed for renovation. That's it. The pool was nice, and the hot tub was splendid. We are already planning our next trip to this park. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a private RV resort with rentals available from lot owners. We stayed here for 2 nights and it was a wonderful experience. All concrete paved lots with beautiful landscaping. Pride of ownership reflected in every site. Office staff friendly and helpful. We used the laundromat which was clean and fairly priced. If the opportunity arose, we would definitely stay here again.

This is a premier park. Some spots are privately owned but are nicely maintained and decorated. We stayed here for a week. Our rate was a weekly plus 24.00 for electricity for the week. Will stay here again. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.

A beautiful RV park with lovely sites. Most sites are now privately owned and some are available for rent. So many sites have recently been purchased that there is a lot of construction going on with owners put in landscaping, masonry work and some building of wood gazebos, etc. going on. This is all very nice, but also very noisy…..I listened to buzz saws, table saws and pounding going on all day, every day (Ugh). That will eventually come to an end, however, and I'm sure the place will be lovely and peaceful. My only other criticism is that they need to expand their laundry room. Only three washers and dryers is not nearly sufficient for a park of this size. I ended up having to go into "town" to use the local laundromat, which was O.K. but EXTREMELY pricey. Otherwise, staff was very nice, people were friendly in the park, and all sites are beautifully done. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This was our second year and will keep coming back. Great large sites with plenty of room. Less then 100 yard walk to beach. Great golf close by. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I rarely give a park a 10. This one certainly deserves it. The sites are large and most are expertly manicured with several ponds throughout. Over 2,000 palm trees. Clean, staff helpful, and friendly. This sits on Mustang Island about 7 miles from downtown Port Aransas. The property is surrounded by dunes and beach. There is a boardwalk from the park to the beach which was pristine. Excellent surf fishing If you need to be real close or in the town this is not the spot for you. If however you enjoy nature, quiet and a beautiful setting and don't mind driving a few miles to get to store then you will enjoy Gulf Waters. Plenty of good restaurants in town. You can take the 5 minute ferry over to Aransas Pass and Rockport. Its free and runs constantly. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We've stayed in perhaps four dozen different RV parks in fifteen states over the past four years, and this is one of the top three we've seen. We originally had planned to stay here for two nights, but liked it so much we extended our stay, twice, and ended up staying a total five nights. As other reviewers have noted, the place is beautiful, well landscaped and immaculate. The Gulf coast is just a few steps away via a boardwalk over the dunes. Wi-Fi is strong and fast, and everything else works well. The one downside is that the locations is somewhat remote; limited dining and shopping options are ten minutes away in Port Aransas, and for extensive dining and shopping options one must go to Corpus Christi, about a half hour drive. I hope we have the chance to come back soon. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This park is one of the nicest I've stayed in. A little more expensive than some, but worth the money. Very nice boardwalk to the beach which is a two or three minute walk. Will be returning the next time we are in Port Aransas. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.
