Great "On the Beach" RV park that is as close to the beach as you can get without camping on the beach. View of Gulf of Mexico out front window of motorhome. Great, friendly staff. ONLY drawback....tight sites and roads but crew helps you park. We camped at On The Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great little town, Port Aransas. Wonderful eateries and shops. Just a short drive (or free ferry ride) to Corpus Christi with their aircraft carrier, etc.

Rate based on 30 day stay and includes additional charge for electric. Rates vary depending on site selected.
Pros: friendly and helpful staff; short walk to the beach.
Cons: WiFi works but was constantly dropping connection; light pollution-too many standard street lights that even ruin a nighttime beach walk; unleveled sites; narrow sites. We camped at On The Beach RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed for 4 days. Small but well maintained park; just like the name, on the beach. Just a short walk to public beach. Beautiful sandy beach, great sunsets! Park staff very eager to help out and constant grounds maintenance. Shade and nonshaded sites. Includes cable hookup. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at On The Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful park, clean and well kept, nice to have the fresh Aloe for sunburn, best shower ever, strict dog policy but no poop on grass, very friendly/helpful residents, from B9 to water's edge (GoM) = 107 meters (I counted), nice beach; TxDoT/TxGLO did good job with beach maintenance, did not encounter jelly-fish but told an occasional issue, water temp 82 degrees, will definitely be back.

Sites are too tight to enjoy. When it rains you walk around in ankle deep water in most of park. Restrooms and showers are old and dingy, appear to have been built in the 50's. Most of staff okay except for one that thinks she owns the park and makes life miserable on daily basis. Owner is a nice lady, needs to evaluate her help as it is costing her business. Most of buildings in park are falling down around themselves. Lot's of rules for campers but an angry staff to deal with. Park needs to close. We camped at On The Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is a very short walk from the beach. The stretch of beach near it is much less crowded as cars are not allowed to be parked by it. We walked to the beach in less than 5 minutes. The sites are tight and close. The park was built many years ago when RVs were smaller. Each site has a grassy area and it's own paved or bricked patio. The park was well landscaped and workers were seen every day doing work to keep it well maintained. I read the previous reviews. I did not find any of the complaints voiced previously. The Wi-Fi worked seamlessly. We were able to connect and stay connected with no problem. The managers were friendly and helpful. The laundry worked just fine and was clean. We didn't check out the bathhouse as we use our own facilities. We thoroughly enjoyed the laid back park and the laid back town. We will be back. We camped at On The Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in 2011 and loved it. Our campsite was right next to the sand dune #H7. Friendly folks all thru the park. Spring breakers were coming in on March 8th so we left. It was gonna be getting busy. Loved this place and will recommend it to others. We would definitely stay here again. (The rate reflects a 30 night stay of $580.00) We camped at On The Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

Due to some confusion on their part, our pull through site became a back in with all hook ups on the wrong side. Very tight, short sites. WiFi doesn't work, cable TV not good, washers in laundry room do not work well. Work campers where very nice, manager was what we expected. We lived on the island in the 70's and come down here often, so our expectations of convenience and customer service were not high. We were not disappointed. We will not stay here again. Rate was based on weekly rate. Island mentality, take it or leave it! We camped at On The Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped in a 32' trailer, and the site was perfect. We had our three large dogs with us. As long as you pick up after your pet, all is well and no additional charge. Sites are full of grass with a picnic table and concrete slab at every site. Walk over the sand dune and you are at the beach. Also a walkway and beach is right across the road. We look forward to booking our next stay here. A+ We camped at On The Beach RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground. Stayed here for Sand Fest and had a great time. Pros: clean and well landscaped, relatively level, utilities worked fine, excellent location to beach and to town. Cons: limited parking, interior sites tight, have them guide you to your site =tight turns and limited space ( with 20' truck and 30' of trailer, I was a little nervous) , never could connect on to wi-fi, make sure you have utility extensions for water, sewer, and electric. All in all, we enjoyed the same and would return! We camped at On The Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

It gets an 8 for its location. This is an old, rustic park with very small sites. Hard to maneuver. However, grass at most of the sites, and flowers and plants are a nice touch. There was only one bathroom and shower combo. Man checking us in did not mention that it needed a key and a $5 deposit so I had to go back to the office. This was the most we ever paid for a site. However, husband does not like to stay in the big 1000 unit large parks like the ones in town. People staying there seemed very nice and friendly. Bernies on Wednesday night is fun. WiFI was nonexistent. We were able to get on an unsecured wifi from another source for most of the time. We camped at On The Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park right next to the beach on the Gulf. Well maintained park with flowering landscaping. Narrow, gravel sites, but manageable. Very helpful staff. Nice laundry room. Only complaint, free Wi-Fi connection was inconsistent. Dog friendly (provides waste bags), but additional $1 per pet per night. If you like the beach, this is the best park in the Port Aransas area. Would stay here again. We camped at On The Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I am not exactly sure about the nightly rate but believe it was around $35.00. This park was reasonably clean, staff was ok, but it was grossly overcrowded. There was barely 10 feet between us and the trailer next to us, their sewer connection was very close to us, as ours was to the guy on the other side. The end of our trailer stuck out in the very narrow road as did some others. If we hadn't gotten here before most of the other campers I don't believe we would have ever been able to get into the space. But it was just a sand dune away from the ocean and about 1/2 to 3/4 miles away from Sand Fest Activities. We are not likely to ever stay here again.

Excellent Park! Small, located right "on the beach" of the Gulf of Mexico. Our campsite was facing the Gulf with a sand dune between us and the water. The sound of the surf crashing ashore was very calming, We were pulling a toad so the car dolly spent its vacation on the other side of the park. Good TV, the WI-FI was there but sometimes not very good at our site (as far as you could get away from the office). When we were leaving, the manager asked if he could go out and check our air pressure in the tires. Down right friendly folks at "On the Beach" RV Campground. We were here for two months with the fee figuring out to about $15 per night. We camped at On The Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

Location Location Location! The biggest selling point is that this campground is right on the beach. Most sites don't have an actual ocean view due to the dunes, but it's a short walk to a beautiful beach. There are no major bells and whistles. The sites were level even though they were a combination of grass and gravel. The bathroom was nothing special, but it served it's purpose. There is only 1 shower. The outdoor shower was terrific for washing the sand off after a day at the beach. The staff here was very friendly - some a bit more knowledgeable about the area than others. The grounds were basic and nice - crews out watering the grass, etc. to keep the park in good shape. The Wi-Fi was a bit sketchy and laundry a bit old, but not showstoppers if you're looking for a nice place on the water in this area. Sunrise is beautiful - just a few steps from your front door. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at On The Beach RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
