Arrival was interesting on Saturday afternoon roads blocked by Intoxicated, rude people on golf carts with music so load it was hard to hear the help offered by the park employee! Constant stream of golf carts playing loud music and parked carts with music loud enough that we couldn't carry on a normal conversation. Pet leashes seemed to be optional,Drunks... More

This RV park was wonderful. Our location near the back of the park, near the boardwalk to the beach and the fenced dog park was perfect. The sites are not as cramped as towards the front of the park. We looked at the other RV parks in the area and by far this one is the nicest. Very nice staff.... More

Be careful going to this RV park it's habit forming. If you do, from that day forward you will judge every park you go to by the Pioneer scale. From the 100% concrete drives and parking pads to the pools and board walk everything about this RV park will spoil you. The staff is friendly and always helpful. You will... More

My family has stayed at Pioneer several times in the past 5 years. Our last stay was terrible. Quiet hours are not enforced at all, nor pet restrictions. There were several "pimped" golf carts riding around within the park blaring music all day Saturday. Drunk adults were in the pool with kids (mine included) using foul language. Used to be... More

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
