Drifters Resort is a great resort in Rockport. It was immaculate while we were there. The grounds are very well kept as are the facilities. The pool and spa area were great and very refreshing during the day. The wifi was strong and reliable. They also provide cable but we were not able to connect as I didn't have a long enough cable. Our family also rented a bungalow and a cabana in addition to my RV site. Both cabins were very clean and they showed each day to replace towels and such. We stayed in site 53 which was a very level concrete pad with lots of shade. The power pedestal, cable and water connections were in the very back of the site. The sewer was centered. The was very little grass at the site due to the high shade. I will take shade over grass any day when on the Texas coast. My only issue was the rule of not allowing dogs in the yards of the cabins. I understand with not allowing them in the buildings but not in the yard? We had rented two cabins and an RV site. We wanted to use the yard area from the cabins to spend our time together as a family and by not allowing us to keep a dog in the yard was disappointing. The web site clearly says no dogs allowed in the buildings. Its say nothing about not being in the yard. There is a sign on the inside of the cabin door ( I didn't rent a cabin personally, I rented an RV site) stating no dogs allowed in the yard. A workamper came by on a golf cart and asked me (he was polite about it) to remove the dog from the area and return him to the RV. Again this was disappointing to me as a dog owner. Overall for the price the park is a great value on the RV sites. Its very clean and well kept and convenient to both Aransas Pass and Rockport. We camped at Drifters Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The pictures are beautiful and parts of the park are just not most it because the grass has died. Our site was long with lot of width under very old oak trees. Although the site is wide it is a very narrow path between the branches to park the unit. Most of the sites are taken by full timers so for them this is no problem. The park has NO pull thru's. The water and electric are at the back of the site I had just enough hose and power line to reach the utilities. The sewer is in the middle and is no problem. Because of the trees no satellite is possible. The bathrooms and pool area are nice and the wifi was good (poor AT&T reception). On the way out I went the way that was directed and hit the bottom of some branches no harm but annoying. We would stay at a different park next time. We camped at Drifters Resort in a Motorhome.

We where there during Sand Fest (sand sculpture contest) it was a blast. Also a trip to the Lexington Air Craft Carrier is worth the time. At the National Seashore was nice and got to see a turtle which was cool. We tried numerous restaurnts and did not find a good one, maybe just bad luck.

All roads are paved. Sites are concrete and level. Many mature trees. Sites accommodate large rigs. Nice pool, exercise room and laundry. New rec hall with lots of activities for winter Texans. Staff are all polite and professional. Wi-Fi is very iffy. Cable TV has good reception. No phone service unless you go to the main office parking lot. Biggest con: cats. Lots of cats running loose and management advised they are neutered/spayed and fed by employees. Lots of cat fights at night. Other than the cats, park is very quiet. We camped at Drifters Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects 7 day stay. Normal weekly rate is $175 but was $225 during our week due to SeaFest in Rockport.

Sites were excellent - shady, concrete level pads with full hookups including Wi-Fi and cable.

We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Drifters Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I stayed at this park for one week and would have loved to stay a lot longer!! The nicest RV park I have ever stayed at. The managers and staff, super nice!!! They fulfilled our request for a place to leave our mobile photography studio trailer with no issues....sometimes it IS a pain but not here!! There is no restaurant but the hamburger stand they run out front is beyond awesome! Loaded with trees but still easy to maneuver and green grass on all the sites we saw. As we have a very small rig, my request to be placed close to bathrooms was not a problem. Laundry was nice and clean. They have a pool and an exercise room with the most amazing equipment...nothing cheap or broken down here! We camped at Drifters Resort in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

Charlotte Plummer's Restaurant-Family eatery where the food is fresh and always delicious! ($-$$) As campers know, a good grocery store is always a plus....I love our HEB!!! For the best fishing supplies and appropriate clothing to remain comfy in the humidity, check out Tackle Town!!! Rockport Beach is not like all the other beaches you've been to...find out why! Don't forget to make a trip across the bay from Aransas Pass to Port Aransas...by ferry!!!

All sites are concrete, large, and have room for the picnic table as well. We were parked under some beautiful oak trees and there is a lot of space between sites. All of the hookups worked well, including cable tv. Wi-Fi was more than adequate. Their laundry room is large, clean and reasonably priced. The exercise room is very nice, and the pool and hot tub look brand new! The women at the front desk are all very personable and helpful. We would come here again if in the area. We camped at Drifters Resort in a Motorhome.

Super nice park. Very friendly staff. Nice sites. We could only get in overflow, but from what we could see of the sites, they are really nice, wide, concrete. Only demerit was one of the laundry rooms was small. We would stay again. We camped at Drifters Resort in a Motorhome.

Very clean park. Price is for 4 adults. The park has a lot of seasonal sites but all are very well kept up. The restrooms are very clean but there is only 1 toilet in each, and 2 showers. There was a clean laundry room and the machines look new, but we didn't use them. There is a fitness room and a nice pool. Also a room with a pool table and tables for card playing. The park is about 15 minutes from Fulton Harbor and 40 minutes from Aransas Wildlife Preserve. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Drifters Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park close to Rockport. Easy in and out. Sites are large. Pleasant helpful staff. Would stay here again. Weekly rate works out a lot cheaper at $175. We camped at Drifters Resort in a Motorhome.

We lucked out and got a spot at this campground. Paved/gravel roads and cement sites and patio. The campground was full of very friendly winter Texans (Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa etc folks). A lot of activities were offered. The only negative was that WiFi in our spot was iffy at times and Verizon cell phones did not work at the site, we had to walk close to the office to get reception. We would definitely come back to this well maintained campground and great office staff. We camped at Drifters Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

What can you say bad about this place? Everything here from the ladies at check in to the sites are top notch. The only cons I can see (and they aren't worth mentioning but somebody might like to know) are the lower limbs on some of the trees bear watching while backing in. And depending on how far you are from the routers, the WiFi signal can be weak. Just to tell you how popular this park is: getting a reservation requires good timing. They are generally booked. One of the best in Rockport. We camped at Drifters Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for the month of January 2014. We were greeted by very friendly staff. Also were escorted to our site which was the second one on the right as you come in the main road. This was a good thing to get escorted as the lots are filled with very low branches of live oak trees. The lots at the front get decent internet but not as you get further into the park. Cable type boxes are required to get TV. It was very cold this year and the pool was empty. Laundry 1.25 per load. Noticed someone putting dog bed and blankets into the machines..no designated machine for it. I have allergies. Also heard workers leave very early mornings from adjacent park. Very noisy. Air boats also noisy leaving early in the mornings for duck hunting. Had many sleepless nights. Not much happening in the park itself. New hall and out buildings are very clean. Find your own fun things to do. Shopping is Walmart and HEB for everything or you had to go all the way to Corpus. Ferry over to Port Aransas is nice..watch for the dolphins. Can't park on beach without permits. Not enough there to make me stay again. We camped at Drifters Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I was here for four nights, and thought it was okay. What I liked is that it was very quiet, especially at night, when I slept with my windows open with no problem. Also the sites are quite roomy, not crowded together. I also liked that there were many mature trees. There are mainly winter Texans and long term residents here, but none of the sites looked junky. The cable TV was a hassle; you get a box from the office when you check in, and you have to unhook the cable to your TV, and then rehook it up again with the cable box. It was a pain in the...neck, and then when I got it all hooked up, I got a message on the screen that said "Your smart card is expired; contact your cable company to get a new one". The office was closed, so I unhooked everything so I could use my antennae to watch the two channels available through it. Also, they overcharged me by one night, but they caught it before I brought it to their attention, and wrote me a check to correct it; not sure why they didn't just issue a credit on my card, but a check worked fine. We camped at Drifters Resort in a Travel Trailer.

October 2012-March 2013 We stayed here in a Motorhome for the winter and we loved the people that we met here at the park. The Management & maintenance is always working hard to keep up the park and make improvements. The folks in the office were wonderful to be around and their customer service was stellar. Great doggie park, activities, exercise room, laundry room, showers and bathrooms. They have an exceptionally nice swimming pool but it was cold the majority of the times so we didn't use it much. We would have rated them higher, however, the cell phone service is bad because of the trees and the WiFi is hit and miss (more hits than miss). Depending on the site, Satellite is hit or miss as well. Most of the sites are spacious, but the trees can be a blessing in the warmer months and the colder months become a nuisance with leaves and sap falling. This year it was very windy while we were here and lots of dirt. It would be nice if the roads were paved with cement or blacktop. If you have dogs you have to wash their feet after their walks because of the humidity and the dirt roads. Monthly rates are great and the park is always booked. The cabins are exceptional and always booked as well. Overall this is one of the nicest parks in Rockport. We camped at Drifters Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here from 10/2012 to 4/2013. What a great park. Owners and staff know how to make your stay a happy one! Many, many actives to choose from; you can be as busy as you want to be. Roads in the park were excellent, along with the Internet and cable TV. Sites are level, however some are very close. We made many new friends and plan to return next season.
