The park is a 5 minute walk to the beach. Sadly that is the highlight. Spaces are extremely tight. My Coleman TT is 28 feet, pulled by a Nissan Armada, so typically it is not an enormous undertaking to get it parked. Here, however, is a different animal. The roads are also extremely narrow. The bath house is ok but... More

I made reservations in advance and chose a campsite using the online map of the park. The site was perfect for us and maneuvering my 5th wheel in the park was a breeze. I believe all of the middle rows are pull-thru and the beach side sites are angled for easy back in. I see no problem accommodating even the... More

CMAC57 Thank you, we also appreciate you taking the time to write a view. When I pulled an RV in the Nineties it and never occurred to me to write a review. We would stop as we left and thank the person in office. Now days it is important to provide reviews, good or bad that provide a true picture.... More

To be charged extra for kids is ridiculous! How many big motorhomes and trailers are suited for only 2 people? Oh yeah, retirees! My daughter who is 10 was yelled at for riding her bicycle around the park by herself! The spots are sooooooo small that the lady next to us watched every time we took our dogs outside to... More

"Our park has served and delighted generations of families". A guest said, "My father brought me to this park when I was a child, now he is in the next unit and my children are enjoying the beach." I've heard this for over a decade, it is a warm smile brightening my day. I've heard several variations of this statement,... More

DO NOT GO TO THIS RV PARK. They are extremely rude and are just there to scam you and take as much money from you as possible. We went there on labor day weekend after booking a beachfront site next to our friends at least 2 months before time. When we arrived they allocated us to a different site without... More

You can only do what you feel is fair and correct. Please read the entire response you’ll find the fish house is more appealing than it sounds. The ladies son rented the site to be next to friends and the park was aware and understands their wishes. Their sites’ current occupant became ill and notified the office just hours before... More

We have stayed here two years and I can say that this park is the same this year as last year. I rated the park a three but the park is a two however, the proximity to the Gulf is a rating of four so the reason for a rating of three. It’s an easy walk to the Gulf from... More

This is the ONLY place we'll stay when we're camping in Port Aransas!!! We enjoy the "on the beach" access with ALL the amenities of a campground. Very clean and friendly. Our family enjoys the back and forth access to the beach without having to get in the car and drive. Their facilities are very clean and the staff very... More

We've been going to On the Beach RV Park for several years now and we always have a great stay. Yes the spots are small, and it's a little older, but it's next to the water and it's bound to a little weather beaten, but I think the staff does a great job of keeping the grounds in good shape....

I came here as a new and inexperienced camper with my friends. My two girlfriends and I had rented a camper to take down to the beach. We also brought with us our two Great Danes.

We called ahead of time and spoke with a friendly working camper in August. She was very helpful in helping us decide which site might be right for us. We had the site with the best view of the beach! The beach is so close you hear the gulf all the time. The beach is one of the best I've... More

I have no idea where the negative posts come from! No, it's not spread out with 50' between campers but certainly not to where you can't put out your awnngs! Our spot was up against the fence facing the road. The spot had a clear view of the Gulf, concrete pad just outside our door and with a picnic table.... More

Thank You Paul, We appreciate your review of our park, it is always nice to hear that folks enjoyed themselves. You mentioned the Wi-Fi, it seems like you get a system set up that works, then the usage increases, and the system is behind the curve.
