Pioneer RV Park is really nice with paved roads and pads. They have plenty of long level pull thrus and back ins - your choice. Nice space between pads. Easy to maneuver about the park. Private boardwalk takes you right to the beach. Good lighting in the park at nite, and lots of area if you like walking in the... More

We have stayed at pioneer every summer for about 7 years but have decided not to return. The park is getting rundown - fire ants are at every site. There is no shade anywhere and it's simply too hot to be outside. With the strong breeze, you can't have your awning out. The pools are in need of repair and... More

If you like pets, (and the sound of yipping and yapping) this is the park for you! Guests walk their pets EVERYWHERE, and using retractable leashes, will allow their pets on your site to do their business.... Management told us when we called for a reservation we could move (off noisy state highway 361) after we arrived to a more... More

We have stayed here several times and have come to understand that any dealings with the office staff is a hit or miss as far as attitude and usefulness. They close the restrooms at 7:45-8:30A for cleaning (right at peak time, "because we have always done it that way). The beach is close and had easy access.

My family and I stayed at Pioneer Beach Resort and loved it. The employees were friendly and professional. Our camp site was nice and level which was a big plus compared to most of the places we have visited. The laundry room was large and clean. It is a short walk to the beach which is great. We will definitely... More

We have been here 2 times a year for the last 3 years at beginning and end of season. The restrooms are still nice and clean and the boardwalk to the beach is in great shape. The office staff was helpful and they guided us to our spot. We recommend this to anyone. Just remember it is out on the... More

While Pioneer RV Resort has the clean restrooms and decent facilities they advertise, they fail horribly at enforcing the key rules that ensure an enjoyable camping experience. They don't enforce quiet hours. Over the Columbus Day week-end, there was loud partying well after midnight one night and after 3:00 a.m. the next. They don't enforce the number of vehicles near...

We have been here many times in the past. The place is beginning to need some up dates. Very little grass, no shade. Very good pads, concrete and level, staff is friendly and helpful. Nice walkway to the beach. If possible I would rate 3.5. Easy access.

We just returned from a 3 day stay at Pioneer Beach Resort. We haven't been to very many privately owned RV parks (we generally stay at state parks), but I would say Pioneer was one of the best ones we have experienced. Check in was easy and friendly. We had 3 adjacent sites very close to the boardwalk that goes... More

It was my families first time to Port Aransas. We found this RV park through a friend of ours which was a GREAT find! The park has paved roads, concrete RV spots, picnic tables, grass that was mowed, VERY clean, two great swimming pool areas which one also had a jacuzzi, very clean shower houses, ponds with colorful birds to...
