Pull thrus are a misnomer. With 40' motorhome and towed, had to disconnect. Otherwise would have been sitting out on street. Streets all paved. Older park with mostly backins, but clean. Office very cordial and helpful. On pullthrus every other lot is rented so there is lots of space for slide-outs. Free cable, free wi-fi. Wi-fi is by Tengo and iffy some times. 30-50 amps. We camped at Wilderness Oaks RV Park (formerly Rockport 35 RV Park Resort) in a Motorhome.

The people at the park were very nice and very friendly. I think it has recently changed management. Our reservation was messed up, but they tried to make it right by applying a discount. Our group had a good time during our stay, but the park is very crowded and the WiFi was very slow. Rockport is slammed during the winter and RV sites are difficult to find. The park was OK for parking, but the section we were in was too tight. There were airplanes flying all day as the Navy trainers use the adjacent airport. The highway and associated noise was quite close to our section. The people were great and the sites were concrete and level, but not a premium campground. Good in a pinch. We camped at Wilderness Oaks RV Park (formerly Rockport 35 RV Park Resort) in a Travel Trailer.

Cost is based on monthly rate + electric. We stayed for 2 months, Jan & Feb 2015.

PRO: very friendly staff & fellow campers. Lots of activities planned by activity director & board of campers (elected by fellow campers)- input from all campers is welcome. Nice, newer laundry. Buildings & restrooms well maintained & clean. Swimming pool has cover for winter & was used daily by some; we didn't use it. Mail slot available to receive your mail.

CON: There wasn't much grass by sites/lots of sandy soil and sand burrs for your dog to pick up in his fur. There was a lot of annoying noise from the airplanes practicing touch & go at the adjacent airport....a real negative for us. Planes go over very low & loud several days a week. Sometimes helicopters practice also. The sites are on the short side and a little close to neighbors.

The airplane noise was a big negative to us so not sure we'd return. But there are quite a few people who have been coming for several years, and otherwise it's a nice place. We camped at Wilderness Oaks RV Park (formerly Rockport 35 RV Park Resort) in a Motorhome.

We stayed 1 night, in a drive through site, not a lot of room between sites. The other sites that they have are for winter Texans are much better and have a lot more room. This park is primarily used for winter visitors from up north and Canada. We have been here 3 other times. We camped at Wilderness Oaks RV Park (formerly Rockport 35 RV Park Resort) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The park has a lot of activities for the winter campers. There is a Super Walmart, a HEB store to shop for groceries. The park is close to the Gulf of Mexico. Rock Port has several banks. This also a RV dealership on the westside of town if you need repairs or parts.

Very little space between rigs when slideouts are out. Some couldn't put their awnings out. Very poor WiFI most of the time, you can't get on. Lack of parking for towed auto and pickups. Owner doesn't live in the U.S. which makes it hard to get problems addressed. Friendly staff but unable to address WiFi problem. We camped at Wilderness Oaks RV Park (formerly Rockport 35 RV Park Resort) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lot of quaint shops downtown.

Fishing Piers

Marinas

Walmart & HEB near by

Close to Corpus Christi

Photos as per website. Staff very friendly. Staff working to maintain the landscape. Back-up site a bit hard for 32 feet, but resident came out to remove her car. A lot of activities and friendly occupants. Too bad we had problems with our RV to resolve and could not participate. Bathrooms and Laundry clean. Will come back.

Under renovations to cable and sewer. Management quick to explain why park in process of upgrade. Streets are narrow, lots of sand burrs in the grass. Pull-through at front of park for overnight and short term. Management continually improving. Older park, but not the worst park we have ever stayed at. It's clean, but dated. We would stay here again. We camped at Wilderness Oaks RV Park (formerly Rockport 35 RV Park Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is monthly plus electric for the month. We picked this particular resort because of a combination of it having pretty good reviews on the internet and competitive prices. In general, we were satisfied. Wilderness Oaks RV Resort has a nice community feel. There are plenty of activities: exercise classes, a ladies’ Bible study group, pot luck dinners, special events, music nights, and table games most every night. People are welcoming and friendly. The campground itself is older and because of that the sites are smaller than we’d like. It was a challenge to get our RV situated in our site. The back-in sites are shallow and the pull through sites are narrow. The pull through sites out by the highway are so tight that there's barely for people to open their slide outs. Those sites wouldn’t be bad for overnight travelers but I’d hate to spend a month in one of them. The campground has a heated pool and during the winter there’s an inflatable dome over it. There’s also a hot tub. Probably the biggest negative is the county airport that adjoins the property to the south. It’s not a busy airport but at times, especially when an area Navy base uses it to practice “touch and goes” the noise can get irritating. There’s also a helicopter service that makes a lot of racket when they fly. Most of the noise is daytime only, and then, not all the time. Our feelings about this campground are much more positive than negative. The area is interesting, the facilities are acceptable, the people are friendly, there are lots of activities, and our campsite (although a bit cramped) was okay. We intend to return for a couple of months next winter. We camped at Wilderness Oaks RV Park (formerly Rockport 35 RV Park Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

My wife and I have been here before. We used this park as a overnight stay. The sites are paved pull-throughs. This park is a winter Texan type park that has a lot of people from the northern states and Canada. We will stay here again. The park is close to almost everything that you would need and close to the Gulf. We camped at Wilderness Oaks RV Park (formerly Rockport 35 RV Park Resort) in a Motorhome.

Site: #77. Monthly stay: $349 (plus electric). Currently 140 of the 170 sites are occupied and the owner stated that they currently were not taking on any more occupants due to the stress it would put on the park. This can be appreciated seeing as how most parks would try and fill all the spaces whether or not they could handle them. The owner of the park held a meeting on 2/18/14 which resulted in a good turnout. He seemed to be very genuine and laid out all the plans he had for the park. He also owns another park about an hour away. Other future plans are to add play areas for children and add additional areas where you can walk your dogs. Note: The owner has RV'd most of his life from when he was a child with his parents and still travels in his RV. Our stay at the park was very enjoyable. The seasonal residents where all very outgoing and friendly. Although there were a few families with small children the vast majority are retired married couples. Allot of the people have dogs and when we were there they were all well behaved. For those that like activities there are many nights when they hold card and board games. The rec room also includes 3 pool tables. Located next to the rec room in the building that houses some of the showers is an exercise room. This exercise room has several weight machines, stationary bikes,a glider and a nice treadmill. There is a hot tub enclosed in its own building. The swimming pool is covered and kept warm which we found rare in Texas. The staff that maintain the park seems to be doing a good job. There are plenty of showers and restrooms and they are kept very clean and in good working order. The park is located next to a local airport. There were only a few times at night that we heard planes and found out later by residents that it is sometimes used for training the military. There are 21 drive-thru spots in the front of the park. The remaining spots are all back in with a mixture of smaller and larger sites. All of the sites throughout the park are on cement pads. There is a mix of 30/50 amp sites. One of the improvements the owner mentioned during the meeting was that they will be upgrading the 30amp sites to 50. Wi-Fi is adequate for an RV park. There were a few times that I had to switch to my phones hotspot because it became to slow to use but that wasn't that often. When I did use my phones hotspot (Verizon) for banking and other things the phones signal was nice and strong. As far as the area goes Rockport is large enough to have most of what you need close by and for those things they don't have Corpus Christi is within an hour drive. Goose Island state park is also within a couple miles of the park. The only disappointed came when we wanted to extend our stay another 2 weeks and were told that it would cost $5 less than if we stayed another month. Those 2 weeks would have the electric included. We opted to stay an additional week. After staying there 5 weeks my wife got to be good friends with some of the lady's in the park and wood go down and play games almost every night. Again the regulars are very friendly. Camped in a motor home. We camped at Wilderness Oaks RV Park (formerly Rockport 35 RV Park Resort) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for two months in the Winter/Spring of 2013. They have a lot of ammenities at this park. Many winter Texans were here. Lots of nice people. The people in the office were very helpful with mail, etc. Rockport is a beautiful spot and we enjoyed our stay here and look forward to coming back again.

Clean park and friendly staff. Many Winter Texans who have been returning for years. Rockport is a fun little town on the Gulf of Mexico. Prices are great for things to do in the area. Rockport really caters to their Winter Texans. We may retire to this community. We would return again. We camped at Wilderness Oaks RV Park (formerly Rockport 35 RV Park Resort) in a Motorhome.

Paid for 2 nights, $72.00, the park is very friendly with winter Texans. They do allow big dogs in the, of which several were outside their RV units and barked when the masters were away visiting. The parks cable strength is weak at times in the evening, and the parks electric was also weak. My volt meter was reading 110 during the day time with the temp at 77 degrees, and refrigerator running on gas. The laundry area is very clean with nice wash machines and dryers. The owners live on premise and are very nice. Rockport is very quite community with a lot things to do. We camped at Wilderness Oaks RV Park (formerly Rockport 35 RV Park Resort) in a Motorhome.

We made reservations at this park in December. Made a $60 deposit for a one month stay starting January 15th. On arrival we paid a full months rent of $300. The weather was not very good and the forecast was for more rain the coming week so we decided to leave 8 days before our month was up. I went to the office to check out and pay our electric bill. I was told the electric was $59.44. I ask the owners to just take it out of our original deposit. They said they could not do that as I could not get my deposit back until my month was up. I then ask if they were going to mail it to me as I was leaving that day. I was informed I would not get it back because I was leaving 8 days early. I responded "but I paid for a month and am leaving early, you can rent my spot and get double for it". It made no difference, they made me pay the electric and kept my deposit. I have never heard of such an arrangement. As far as I am concerned they cheated me out of $60. We camped at Wilderness Oaks RV Park (formerly Rockport 35 RV Park Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

We were quoted a $40 rate but the $36 was a "discount". The park features cement pads and roads but the pull-throughs have extremely tight width. If there had been neighbors to either side we would not have been able to put out slides or awning. Check-in was fine for us and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Aluminum can recycling is available. No one has mentioned this but make certain to have liquid laundry soap if you use the machines as signs are posted all over the laundry room that only liquid is allowed. No provisions to get other soap unless you drive into town to HEB. The park was clean, even during the windy April days we visited.
