This was a return visit for us and was over the 4th of July holiday weekend. Considering that this is probably the busiest week of the year for them, things went smoothly. There were no empty sites. No issues with utilities, did not buy cable for $2.50 extra per day and found that over the air channels worked just fine for us. Workers did their best to control the environment for the good of everyone. We did find that the rules did not seem to be applied fairly and equally amongst all the guests however. Rules not enforced for some that had rented spaces for the summer apparently. Fortunately for us, we were a number of sites away from them so it did not affect us directly. Otherwise, I would have had to speak up. The biggest bummer was the amount of seaweed on the beach. I've never seen it so thick in all the years we've been down there. That and trying to find a spot due to the amount of people on the beach, but that is no fault of the park. All in all it was a good visit and will return, just not on a holiday weekend. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This was our third winter at this park and it gets better each year. Rate cited is based on a monthly rate. During the winter it is a typical snowbird park with lots of activities, but no pressure to join in if you don't wish to. We stay in the pull through 400's sites in one that faces the birding pond. All roads and sites are concrete and our site was plenty long enough for our 40' MH and our CR-V. The sites aren't overly wide, but that's typical in resort areas. Some of the less expensive sites closer to the highway are smaller. We think the staff are great; there are lots of workampers constantly going around cleaning and maintaining the place. The office staff are business-like but friendly. The park starts to transition to a family park around spring break and remains busy with the vacation crowd through Labor Day. There is more hustle and bustle that time of year and we prefer the way it is in the winter. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed two nights in the 400 numbered section. Sites are narrow and about 70 feet. Hook ups are placed decently in the site and all work correctly. Park is second largest of the established parks in the coastal towns of Port A., Aransas Pass and Rockport. Has its own boardwalk to the beach and big rec hall where they have the activities. It worked for two nights while we came back to area to have work done on the rig but for long term we prefer smaller parks. Price paid was GS discount plus $2.50 per day for cable. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very clean and well laid out park. I stayed for the month on Janurary. The staff is very helpful, with assisting me to park in my site, to taking care of anything I asked of them. There is a nice boardwalk down to the beach. The park has a lot of activities and offer breakfast, for a fee, on the week-ends. The water pressure is good, the electric feed is excellent and all the ammenities of the park are great. There is a golf course right across the street from the entrance to the park. The park is located near most attractions around Corpus Christy and the gulf area. I would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects a special offer that allowed me to get 3 nights for the price of 2 for a premium back-in space. I ended up here when Mustang Island SP wall full for part of my stay. I was not disappointed at all. All the roads and pads are concrete. My site also had a nice concrete patio. Hook-ups were well-placed, the WiFi worked great and the restrooms were spotless. There is a nice boardwalk to the beach, as well as other amenities. The entire park exudes a very friendly atmosphere. As I frequent the Port Aransas area, this park may be my new "go-to" location We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed for 4 nights and it wasn't enough. Nice amenities, utilities worked well, level, decent room between sites, all concrete pads and roads, easy in and out. Main reason we came here this time was because of the wide boardwalk across the dunes for golf carts and foot traffic. Access to beach was SO easy! We were there at the beginning of the summer and did not have any issues with after hours noise. Park was clean and well cared for. Enjoyed our stay and will return soon~ We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is written as a mixed review of sorts. We booked a premium pull-through site as a weekly rate. The park itself is OK. The sites were close together on our row. It was OK until the holiday group came and it was very busy as I expected. It seem as if a lot of Texans leave their fifth wheels on the property with their golf carts and return on weekends. There was a lot of noise from the gas golf carts, loud music, and a lot of empty cans. We would have preferred a quieter time and never saw anyone around to patrol. The park is close to the beach which was also packed as expected. Be careful with a dog as a week later we are still finding stickers in his coat. There is a beautiful park called Charles Pasture with a boardwalk and trail to see birds etc. I do not think I would stay here as we prefer a quieter experience.

This park is located right on Texas 361 and Gulfwind Drive. The resort has a private boardwalk for foot and golf cart access to the Gulf of Mexico. The center of the resort is a group of ponds that are great for bird watchers. The hook-ups are well maintained, and the sites have recently been widened. The premium sites have picnic tables and fixed steps to set against your RV. The bathhouse is cleaned daily, trash collection runs each morning, and a fish cleaning station is in good shape. The staff is friendly and during operating hours you are taken to your spot and guided in. They have extensive rules, but it is clear they are not strongly enforced but as needed for unruly and rude guests. They have a park watch program, hosts and work campers that keep this place well maintained, clean, and friendly. The location is only a few minutes from Mustang Island State Park and Port Aransas, the opposite direction. Twenty minutes south on 361 takes you to Padre Island National Seashore. The rate above reflects the premium back-in with the discount. Off season they do not charge for extra guests over two. Cable and golf cart registration is extra. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Rally rate was $28.00. The park very clean, grass cut and all staff very friendly. There are many winter Texans parked here. Nice pool facilities, huge rally hall and boardwalk over dunes to beach, which was wonderful. Easy drive into town for shopping (1 grocery) and selections of restaurants and across ferry to Aransas Pass. Ferries will carry rv's with tow cars and will ask for weight of rv. I suggest not trying to use ferry in peak traffic. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a large park with boardwalk access to the beach and gulf. It has paved roads and sites. One needs to unhook a tow vehicle before going to the site due to turns in the park. The office is well-equipped and staff was pleasant. There is an activity schedule for winter Texans and some meals are served in the common hall. Dogs can be walked throughout the park and are welcome on the beach if leashed. There is a large dog run also. We would definitely stay here again. Discounts are applied if staying a week or longer.

Just walk over the boardwalk at the park, and you are on the lovely beach. Better yet, drive your golf cart over then drive up the beach to Port Aransas for shopping as many people do. How wonderful! This is not a 55 park so your hot tub visits may provide more interesting than what you are used to. The facilities are good, and I can see why this is a popular park. I loved sitting on the beach at night during a warm evening. You will probably like this park as well but watch out for the tiny red ants. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Truck Camper.

This is our second winter stay here and we can say without equivocation that this is a well-run CG. The place is clean and trash is picked up daily. There are plenty of seasonal campers and snowbirds who do have bikes, grills and other stuff around their rigs, but the sites are neat and orderly. There are lots of friendly work campers. If it bothers some reviewers that most RVs here are towables rather than Class A's, my suggestion is that they spend the time to read and learn that towables currently comprise 90% of the RV market. As for the size of the sites, as full-timers we can say that these are better than average, particularly with respect to the fact that the CG is in a resort area and is essentially on the beach. The price cited is with a monthly rate for the most expensive pull-though sites; there was a significant reduction in price this year. There are lots of organized activities during the winter months for those who like that sort of thing, but there is no pressure to join in. We have a site overlooking the large birding pond; having a cup of coffee in the morning while watching egrets, herons, and spoonbills is a great way to wake up.

Are you looking for full hook-ups, two pools, 66+ cable clear cable channels, everything clean and well kept?? This is it. Internet access is pretty good, they have 5 or 6 towers to connect. We've stayed here a couple of times before. We always have our golf cart as Pioneer has a boardwalk directly to the beach that will accommodate the largest golf carts. No ATVs, motorcycles, mopeds, scooters, etc. which makes it nice. No teenagers zooming around being disrespectful. Speed limit in the park is 5 mph. The park is monitored but not so much that you feel like they are spying on you. Very friendly management. There are quite a few full time residents, but there has never been a problem. The two pools are sparkling clear and stay open late, one until 11:00 p.m. and the larger pool open ALL NIGHT!! probably seasonal, but a big YES! as we've stayed in parks where the pools close at 8:00 p.m. even in the summer. Not here, and by the way the ocean was open 24 - 7 as well. Grounds well maintained, restrooms/showers up to date and clean. We've stayed here a few times, sites in the "West Bank" are off a road that is a more narrow but manageable. See ya next summer! We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The owners of this park have tried to re-define the meaning to the term “Resort” but this park is anything but. As soon as we had checked in and were led onto the property we felt that this was one of the less nicer places we have ever stayed at. It is a concrete jungle with no trees or shrubbery to speak of, and they pack the RVs in like they were sardines. The far majority of the rigs were either travel trailers or 5th wheels with less than a handful of Class A's. When we were led to our sight, the staff member guiding us never got out of his golf cart until the back of our rig came into contact with a truck parked along the drive. Although I accept responsibility for having ultimate control, I thought it was the staff members’ job to get us into the site safely, a bad assumption on my part! I guess the staffer's only job was to help me read the big bold numbers for the sites so I parked in the right one. All he could say was that it could have been a lot worse, and his coworker who arrived a few minutes later was heard to say that maybe I needed a smaller RV. This is a place where the majority of campers park and flock here on weekends leaving their rig unattended during the week. Obviously some of the residents are permanent, contrary to the web site, which seems lacking. The beach is a very long walk, difficult if you have small kids and are toting typical beach stuff. If you love ants, this is the place for you. On the plus side, the pools and the laundry areas are very clean and the bags of ice reasonably priced. The office staff was very professional but not friendly, making me realize their focus is solely on the $$ and not on customer satisfaction. We left a day early. We will not return here. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an older park. It has many seasonal and longer stay rigs. It allows golf carts and has activities for children. So on weekends it is busy and active. Look both ways when walking off your site. Did have a Frisbee bounce off the coach but dad took it away after he saw it happen. The usual walk through your site stuff. Most long term sites were in good shape, though some did look their age. An OK time but would look for a more quiet location. We were here for a rally so had no choice. My car and 45 ft rig just fit on site. Note for dogs, the TX stickle burrs are what you have for grass. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.
