We stayed here for two weeks while doing hurricane recovery work in Port Aransas. The sites are satisfactory and the park has done a remarkable job recovering from Hurricane Harvey. The concrete pads are level and all hookups work well including cable tv. The sites are close together but not quite "breathing on each other" and the lanes are quite narrow with limited maneuverability. They have recently added a small but helpful enclosed dog park. We did not use the pool due to cool weather. However, the bathrooms and showers were unsatisfactory. Although full of signs to "keep clean" and "clean up after yourself," I could not even wash my feet due to 3-4" of standing water in the shower by the time I was done, much less clean out the shower after. Most of the park is taken by local working folks (who fire up their pickups at 6:30 or 7:00) or by longer term residents. Some sites as well as much of the overflow parking is used by displaced local residents including some families living in RVs while their houses are demolished or rebuilt. The owners have done great work but have to clean up the bathrooms and showers to improve ratings. Port A RV looked better but is not as close to the town or beach, and Island RV which is also "in town" looked good after a complete rebuild. Tropic Island does not have propane which may be a temporary issue, but a propane truck comes to the park. Island RV has propane nearby. Some picnic tables are available but more are going to be ordered, we were told. Office staff was very friendly and helpful. We paid $239 weekly plus electricity usage. We camped at Tropic Island RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We read other reviews on this park and their website and decided to stay here rather than the park we have stayed at before. A mistake as the other park is a better value. Sites very narrow. Your tip outs are over your neighbors site. To pull away you have to make sure your neighbor moves his truck. Pool small but nice and not heated as stated in their web page. Help hard to find when you need things like propane. I would not stay here again. We camped at Tropic Island RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I stayed here for 3 months, so the $12/night reflects monthly rate plus electricity. Very neat and clean RV park, owner on premise and most helpful. We camped at Tropic Island RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Not a bad park for overnight or just sleeping between activities. We made a reservation for a premium corner back-in and found it to be one of the worst sites in the park and moved to a standard back-in. Lots of old, old rattle-trap RVs that appear to be permanent. Be aware that Wi-Fi is not free and that dogs are limited to 20lbs unless approved ahead of time. Again, not a bad place but not one of the greatest we've stayed at. We camped at Tropic Island RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Older park with narrow interior roads, level concrete sites. Would have used the pool more if it had been heated. Great location right in town, right across the street from Paradise Pond, one of the best birding locations we have ever been to. Would definitely return.

We made reservations at this park to see some family members that stay there for a couple weeks each summer, our stay was three nights. Upon arrival the first thing you notice is that the park is older and shows its age somewhat. The majority of the sights are narrow in width and seem to have been layed out before the advent of the slideout rooms that most rigs have today. Our neighbors awning was inches from touching our slideout. There is no room between sites to set up a table and grill or anything that most campers would use to create there own space. If you wanted to do this it had to be done in front of the rig as the driveway was long and concrete There are many permanent residents and transient residents who leave their rigs parked all season and some possibly all year. Many of the permanent residents do not maintain there spaces to what I would consider an acceptable condition. The manager, who I believe was the owner as well, seemed to be indifferent to any problems or concerns that were brought to his attention. I say that this park is family friendly because there were several children around, but the layout does not create the safest environment for riding bicycles nor is there a playground. The one plus I can say about this park was that it was in the middle of town and offered easy access to most of the attractions on the island. If you are looking for an overnight stay this place would be suitable, but if you are looking for better amenities and better beach access for an extended stay, there are better choices that meet those criteria. We camped at Tropic Island RV Resort in a Motorhome.
