Horrible management and very rude we had a 25 foot POP up and had to stay in the tent section after being told otherwise we ended up paying 60 dollars more than we shoukd. U do not recommend this place for anyone who has standards. I will never stay again. Management was very rude and unprofessional. And you would probably... More

It was Spring Break when this particular visitor arrived at the park, college students with a trailer that they weren't all that familiar with. While it is correct that the guest did have a pop-up unit, the way they speak of the tent area disparagingly is hardly a representation of what tent area is as it contains brick patios, landscaping,...

We have been come here for 3 years, winter and summer. It is not a fancy park but a great lay back and enjoy yourself park. The owner's are always working hard to improve thing here and really care about people. It is the only park we know of that is an easy walk to the beach. I would not... More

They did not honor the reservation that was promised. We made reservations 6 months in advance. The staff was very rude. They told us one thing to get us to make a reservation and then when we arrived it was totally different. We had the largest trailer 37' , in the park and were put in the most difficult spot... More

To begin with, the customer made reservations three months ago, not six. She was in a group of three people. She was a 35', not a 37' foot RV. She was moved to a larger site due to her rig growing two feet on the way over, and her desire to have 50 AMP service. She was unwilling to back-up... More

Stayed here for the month of January. Some very positive points for this RV park: Access to the beautiful beach is great!! Close to a nice little tourist town with amazingly good seafood restaurants. Cable TV and internet access at each site. Small park, no pressure to "join in" activities. Close to Corpus Christi, and the free ferry takes you... More

I made reservations over one month in advance for a premium site, talking to the office several times. We were assured that we could reserve a site on the front row - row B. I paid a $150.00 deposit. Based on prior excellent reviews, I greatly anticipated a week on the beach, a long overdue vacation. We received a telephone... More

This couple was booked and paid for as a pull-through site for a weekly rate. When we book for weekly rates we give a brief review on our thoughts on that specific slot both good and bad to best fit our customers in our unique place here at On The Beach. When this customer arrived, she found the site agreeable... More

I never wanted to leave! The RV park was well maintained with good restroom and shower facilities. They had wireless internet and best of all were right on the beach. Also, Port Aransas is a great town to explore. It is a family business and the owners are very nice people, I can't wait to go back.

Let it be known forthwith that before this review was even known of, that these persons were black-listed to never return again to On The Beach Rv Park. It is true that there is only one set of bathrooms and there is no air conditioning available, under the advice of a technical adviser, they are instead ventilated by power vents... More

This was worth every penny. Nice folks, pristine grounds, and so close to the beach that you can hear the surf. We brought our two sons and two dogs for a long weekend and finally had the relaxing, no worries experience we were seeking. We were close enough to town to get our daily gallon of milk (two BIG boys)... More

What can I say.....I was looking for a place that was on the Port Aransas beach, but where I didn't have to walk a long way across the dunes or drive to be on the beach. Low and behold I found a small rv park that fit the bill. Even my navigation system didn't want me to go there because... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Gulf View RV Sites,with 23 miles of Port Aransas, sandy beach literally start at your door. The Gulf of Mexico provides the azure background for beautiful sunrises and sunsets to enjoy. The call of breaking surf can be heard throughout the park. You only need to be here; all types of surfing, excellent kayak area, sailing, fishing, shelling, right on a fly way for birders,$6.00 For shrimp right of the Polly Anna, even the Monarchs pass through on their Journey to Mexico. You can be on a beach in a relaxed fishing town setting, yet 40 minutes to all that Corpus Christi has to offer. Want to lay back, the city of Port Aransas, has much to do and see, the trolley stops right at the park or you can even a stroll the sandy beach to town. The stops right at the park. The island trolley makes a continuous loop stopping at the beach, downtown areas, birding facilities, the marina, jetties, fishing pier, city pool, and Mustang Airport among other stops. We are On the Beach only a few blocks to the nearest Stripes, Beach-Mart (souvenirs), Palmilla Beach and Golf Resort and Port Aransas Community Players. These services are all within 1 1/2 miles: IGA Market, Dr. Bruce MD, Carter Pharmacy, Dr. Canon (Chiropractor) and Texas Dental Oasis Christopher Kight, D.M.D. Gulf Coast Taxi Service also will pickup food from the local restaurants and delivery to your door. When you come to visit the Gulf, why not stay on the Beach? You'll have full hook-ups including cable TV, WI-FI, patio and picnic table. Pet owners are allowed just comply with pet rules. They are other newer parks in Port Aransas; there is only one "On The Beach RV Park" especially since we are the only RV Park right on the beach. The office has ice, and a selection of RV Parts. Welcome to the Coastal Bend of South Texas and the relaxed life at On The Beach RV Park! ... more   less
