Called to reserve in advance, everything was good until we got on the site. Staff do not care. She gave us the cable channels available, my husband tried to connect for over 30 mins trying different things but nothing worked. The lady at the office said that she did not know how it worked and to talk to someone the next day. The next day they said that they were waiting for someone to come and repair but did not know when. Not organised! The sites are one beside each other and for at least 4 rows. Like in the city? New pool that we did not use. Bathrooms and Laundry room very old and not maintained. Will not come here again. We camped at Ancient Oaks RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is not too bad if you're not expecting a resort. As others have said, there are a lot of permanent residents, but we found them to be friendly, as were the park staff. I was a little disappointed that the fishing pond has seen better days and decided not to waste my time dropping in a line. The recreation room, store, and pool were also neat, but average. Over all, we will stay here again when visiting the area. We camped at Ancient Oaks RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park for the price, based on monthly rate of $300.00. The staff is friendly and busy keeping the park clean. There are some older park models that detract a bit for the over all ambience, other wise I would have rated it much higher. The Oak trees are beautiful and you can't beat the location to the city of Rockport and Corpus Christi. Spaces are large and roomy. They have newer concrete pads but the older grass sites are just fine for a $75.00 savings. We looked around at other RV parks while here and are glad we found this one. There are a couple that are more modern and nicer in Fulton but this park is fine for us. This is a large park compared to the others too, with much bigger RV spaces. Roads are a bit narrow at some points and the entrance has a tree in the middle of the road that could disappear as far as I'm concerned in order to widen it, but ok in a 40' motorhome like ours. There are permanent residence here living in manufactured and park model homes, and coexist with campers just fine. Nice lounge and pool, plus a camp store as well. The exercise room needs work. I would definitely come here again. We camped at Ancient Oaks RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

As others said, older park. Definitely want to get on new concrete pads if a big rig. Wi-Fi is Tengo and slow. "New" exercise room has equipment I was afraid to get on because of age and condition. Rate is weekly on new pads. Plenty of treeless spaces. We camped at Ancient Oaks RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an old KOA park with some upgrades. The bathrooms have been refurbished with tile but the shower stalls are KOA "snug". Park was near full with what appear to be long stay sunbirds. As an overnighter, we got placed in the back of the park in the original section. The internal roads are paved, but the spaces in the old section are grass with many of them not particularly level. New section has concrete pads and seem roomier. Services are split with sewer on opposite side of water and power. Web speed was okay once you navigate Tengo system. Good selection of cable channels.

Good park. Wi-Fi speed was good. Has lots of cable TV channels. Beautiful area with lots to see, or just to relax. We camped at Ancient Oaks RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a wonderful park. Staff was very efficient and cheerful. We were shown sites available for our choice and led down to the site we chose. Large concrete sites available for a higher fee. Pool was clean, as was hot tub. We were only about 2 miles from a beautiful beach, and lots of fishing places. All shopping was within 5 minute drive. We would love to stay here again.

Easy access to the park. Check in was easy and they drove you to pick your spot. All grass sites with some trees. Water pressure was good. We could use our Verizon phone and Dish . We were in the older portion of the park. They do have newer sites with cement pads. We would stay here again. We camped at Ancient Oaks RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Wow! I cannot support other higher ratings from other reviewers. We were assigned to one of the truly "Ancient" sites, sewer on one side, power and water on the other. After getting relocated to a site with hookups all on one side, all we had to deal with was long power and TV extension cords, sand (no grass) all around the rig, and raucous birds in the "Ancient Oaks" around us. We will not be returning this truly ancient, ex-KOA campground. By the way, the cable TV was not HS and frequently was noisy. And the Wi-Fi really did work, about 25% of the time.

I gave this CG a "10" and it certainly deserves a high rating. The staff was excellent, though this CG is very busy this time of year. An oasis for warmer temperatures, we left Louisiana with 23° temperatures to here at 50-60°. If I were looking for things to complain about, the entrance is not a large one and if over anxious campers want to block it, they can and do. The only problem we had was with the clientele, some of whom were very rude. The staff did an excellent job of dealing with them. This park has a calendar of things to do, something going on every day including Sunday with a non-denominational church service. The internet worked well, the Cable TV has an ample supply of stations. I would camp here again. 99% of the other campers were very friendly.

Rate is based on weekly rate of 180.00. A wide variety of sites in this park from lots of trees to no trees, large and small. They are good about showing you the sites and letting you pick the site you like if it is avail. They have a nice doggie park where you can sit and let your dogs run and play ( all fenced ). They have good cable tv but pay wireless internet. We camped at Ancient Oaks RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice RV park but management needs a little education on how to work with the RVers. That's the only reason I didn't give it a higher rating. Some friends stayed here with us and decided they liked it enough to stay an extra week. They checked with the office to see about an extension of time and, after personnel there hemmed and hawed around for about 20 minutes, they finally told our friends to check back in an hour. Well, during that hour, they found another RV park so moved on. We heard several other campers complain about management, too. That said, they have installed new sites (level, concrete pads) but with no shade. The older sites are not paved but are level and shady. Very nice. Some are longer than others so be sure to indicate the length of rv you have when you reserve your spot. Interior roads a bit narrow but the big Class A’s didn’t appear to have any trouble navigating them. Bathrooms and laundry very clean. Didn’t use the heated pool or hot tub but, although the pool looked a bit on the small side, it was clean. There is an exercise room but the lights didn’t work and there were no instructions on how to use the equipment. Had we gone to an exercise class that was offered, though, we might have learned how to use it. Potluck dinners once a week; crafts, bingo, and other activities. The TV service was good and the high speed Wi-Fi worked well for us. Our dog really appreciated the large dog run. Lots of squirrels to keep you amused and the broad-tailed grackles (or whatever) will provide you with never-ending squawks, whistles, chirps and various other delightful sounds. If you’re parked under a tree, they’ll also give you reason to wash your RV! Even with the management problems, we would stay here again and would recommend it to friends.

We spent 4 nights here. We did not check out modem hookups or telephone hookup but did check everything else including their club house which is an older house complete with kitchen, restrooms, game room, etc. This is an older park but well kept and we enjoyed out stay. The TV service was good and the high speed Wi-Fi worked well for us. The restroom is recently remodeled, all tile, clean and outer doors has a coded lock. Laundry room was well equipped with 12 washers and dryers that all worked. Pool and hot tub looked nice but we didn't use them. One major improvement would be paving of individual pads. Interior roads are paved and newest sites being built have concrete pads. This is the last park in Rockport, on the left. The only store we saw in walking distance was a Dollar Store. The staff we interacted with were all friendly. We camped at Ancient Oaks RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The web site registration did not work. I left 3 messages via telephone and none were returned by the staff, this should have told me something. Overall the park was fine, with a new dog run, pool, etc. I stayed 2 months, and paid electric bills that were 50% to 80% higher than I've ever had before. The management's response was pay up or leave. During the 2 month stay 6 other campers and I finally choose to leave, which hard to do in south Texas in Jan. and Feb. Some campsites had older electric meters, but mine was the new and improved model. We camped at Ancient Oaks RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice park. Staff were friendly and helpful. The park is clean and well maintained. It's location is ideal because it is only 3 blocks to the water and downtown. The sites are roomy and the trees provide nice shade at many of the sites. The only complaint we had is that the sites are definitely set up better for bigger rigs with the water, electric and cable on one end and the sewer pretty far away on the other. We really had to maneuver about and stretch things to get a full hook-up. The pool is on the small side and closes at 10 p.m. It would be nice if there was no closing time or a much later time so we could have adults-only time in the pool and hot tub area. All in all a really nice place to spend time in Rockport and we will definitely be back. We camped at Ancient Oaks RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.
