First time in Rockport and was very nice clean and enjoyable. Camped 4 days and only challenge was mosquitos. They are an act of nature and no fault of Drifters. Being from Minnesota, we are used to mosquitos but not in March. We had a great time met some nice people and give this place an A rating. Thanks for... More

Thank you for your review. Yes, we do have those flying pests here occasionally and the rain of March was excessive this year helping their population multiply but we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us in spite of this annoyance. Rockport is a great little town. In fact, it was just named USA Today's #5 "Best... More

We had family coming down for Spring Break and because of a cancellation, we were able to rent a bungalow for 3 nights for them. Cannot say enough about this resort. When the family entered... More

Great, quiet resort. The staff were extremely helpful and the area is absolutely georgeous! Stately oaks line the streets and sites. The bungalo was nicely furnished, well maintained, and extremely clean. Everything about this place was wonderful. We will return.

Drifters Resort has the kindest staff I've met on this trip, they will try to accommodate your needs and help with the wishes. The guests in this RV Resort community are the friendliest as well, and very guarded about their neighborhood, which is a great safety measure. I tried in just a couple of months ago to get a spot...

Drifters Resort is fabulous. This was our second visit to the resort and it was the perfect place to spend our Christmas Holiday. The sites are nestled in the live oak trees and have concrete pads and patios. Great Location. Wonderful friendly staff. Drifters is our number #1 choice when we visit the Rockport area.

Just spent a week at Drifters Resort and it is one of the best RV parks we've stayed at. The sites are large and shaded. Amenities were great. The swimming pool is large and clean. Spent a few days fishing and a day at the Annual Seafarers Festival. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Would highly recommend it.

We come to Rockport about 6-8 times a year. We hate staying in "hotels" on a fishing trip. The cabanas are so convenient with the drive thru for the boat. Rooms are always clean and the beds are comfortable. We love the staff, they always make us feel welcome. -Kathy & Allan
