The park is a bit overpriced, but I guess that is because you can walk across the boardwalk to the beach. The sites were concrete and had plenty of space. The sites had nice picnic tables. There was a large fenced in dog park which our dogs loved. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice, large campground with boardwalk access to beach. Sites include paved parking and picnic tables. Staff were customer oriented and very understanding of our delayed arrival and last minute need for an additional day due to recurring motorhome problem. Our dogs enjoyed long walks around the campground and evening walks on the beach. We would definitely stay at this campground again if we get back to coastal TX again. Nice toilet/shower room, rally meeting room, pool, and laundry facilities. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

Excellent location near the town of Port Aransas, on the beach with a boardwalk to the beach. Concrete driveways and concrete pads, patio and picnic table, full hookups, pools and hot tubs, rec center, etc. Wi-Fi was too slow to be of any use about half of the time. From the rec center we got much better service. Staff was cordial but not overly friendly. The park is clean and seems to be well maintained. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed this park simply because of the boardwalk access to Port Aransas beach. We walked miles every morning with our dog on a mostly empty beach - beautiful. The sites are a little close together and the pool / hot tub are mostly unused in the winter, but who needs them with the beautiful beach? They have lots of activities which cater to the 55+ crowd and that group was very friendly to us - we enjoyed meeting many people. The only bad thing was the wifi. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The pull-thrus have no grass so our dog had to be walked to the dog park to do his business. Find a site with grass.

We only stayed one night. We felt the price was a little high compared to what we had been paying. The park was very well kept. Worse thing was the traffic noise. So close to road. There was an airfield across the street so maybe the noise was coming from planes also. Would not stay there again. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice RV Park located close to the beach (access from park is by way of a boardwalk over the sand dunes). The sites are level but close together with a mixture of pull throughs and back-ins. All sites are concrete with full hook ups. The WiFi worked OK most of the time (we had to log back in several times during our stay). The hot tub was working although the water temperature needed to be raised. The pools are not heated and we did not use them. The park itself is clean, garbage is picked up everyday at your site and the restrooms/showers were cleaned every day. There are activities in the park through out the week and they had live music one night each of the weeks we were there. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Port Aransas is a tourist town with lots of shops. HEB is Aransas Pass is the best place to grocery shop. There is an IGA grocery store in Port Aransas with limited selections. Charlie's Pasture is a nice city park to visit for walking/bird watching.

This a very nice campground with a boardwalk to the ocean. Walk ride and fish the beach. But the local Texens have discovery it and now stay there year around. The best sites are taken and not much left. Fishing in the area is the best you could find anywhere. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

While pricy this resort offers everything from daily trash pickup at your site to easy access via a nice boardwalk on to the beach just a short hike away. With mostly fully contained units there is little need for bathrooms and showers but the building near out site 304 was immaculate and private with your own oversized 3/4 bath if needed. Fenced dog run, ponds with native and migratory birds and a reasonable distance into Port Aransas proper or Corpus Christi. As one would expect, mostly long term snowbirds, 80% who have/drive their own classy gold carts to get around. We were made to feel comfortable even though or stay was short at just a week. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

Drive the beach, fish from the beach, if into birding get the Port Aransas bird guide and ENJOY, ENJOY. Take a trip to Goose Lake State Park in Portland and the Aransas NWR. If driving around Corpus Christi, go to the Laguna Reef restaurant right on the water, Funktastic!

We stayed here 2 nights and were very uncomfortable the entire time. First, the sites were close. Next door a tent was in my hook up area. Trash all over the place, we like to walk the park but were totally disgusted with the filth half way down our street. Not very enjoyable for the price. It is truly overrated.

Nice, big concrete pads. Campground was well kept. Playground was in need of repair/upgrade. We did not use the pool it looked nice but there was usually a good of 50 somethings gathered there just hanging around. I didn't feel comfortable taking my young grandchildren there. The beach access was great but we couldn't tolerate the mosquitoes on the walk to and from the beach so we drove our truck to the beach via the access road a few blocks away. There were no mosquitoes at the beach, only at the campground. In fact, we couldn't get from our RV to our truck (parked on the same pad) without getting several mosquito bites. There was a picnic table but no fire pit or BBQ grill. Upon check in I was told we could purchase discount tickets to local attractions but when I went back the next day to do so, I was told they didn't sell tickets. The campground was very quiet. Hardly anyone outside. We contribute this to the bug problem. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very clean and well organized resort. A few of the highlights are the boardwalk to the beach, the two pools and a large hall. The premium pull through sites were tight. We were quite close to our neighbors. Their sewer hose is in your "yard". The wifi worked well too. Another nice point is the location. Its just a couple of miles outside of Port Aransas. You are close enough to run into town to eat or shop but far enough out to not have to worry about the heavy traffic. The only real concern for me was the mosquito's! They were horrendous. It made being outside very difficult, especially the walk from the beach. On the beach it was fine, no bugs but coming and going to the boardwalk was ugly. There has been quite a lot of rain this year and the city did spray for bugs while we were there. Overall this is a great family resort. They have many activities in the hall too. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Travel Trailer.

If you want a clean pleasant campground with level sites, good wi-fi and cable, easy walkway to the beach, good showers and restrooms and easy access to midtown Port Aransas, and don't mind paying $59 per night, this is the place for you. We've stayed here for the past several years and enjoyed it, however the higher rates lately seem a bit too much. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Best place for drinks is Back Porch Bar close to Woody's. Best value is the fresh shrimp from the Polly Anna at 9am in the park by the ferry.

This was our second visit in two years. The park is clean, well run, with friendly staff and many snowbirds. Close proximity to attractions make this an ideal place to stay. This visit there were a tremendous number of ravenous mosquitoes that made any outside pursuits impossible unless the sun was out and there was a breeze. not the campground's fault-heavy rains all over Texas created this issue everywhere. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here several times. Sites are tight, no shade, but level and concrete. The premium sites offer the best location with close proximity to both the pool and the walk way to the beach. A lot of activity in the evenings, golf carts, and social gatherings of the "regulars." During our stay the mosquitoes were brutal, all day long. We got some relief while in the pool and of course on the beach. Staff is friendly and very helpful as we had to change our arrival dates several times leading up to our trip. Still got a site close to the pool as we requested. Number of pools and locations serve this park well. Trash pickup at your site is a nice bonus. Pay attention to the price and additional fees for more than two people and cable, etc., as they add up quickly. We will return. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is our fourth winter at Pioneer (we've been here for 5 months) and the park continues to be very well run. It's exceptionally clean and neat. Workers are constantly picking up trash, mowing, edging, etc. During the winter there are plenty of activities if one is looking for that sort of thing. During Spring Break there is good security so you never really notice the hordes of college students. We have a site that faces a huge birding pond and we enjoy watching the birds while we have our morning coffee. Yes, it's one of the more expensive parks in the Corpus Christi area but we like what we get for the money. We've already made our reservations for next winter. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.
