Have been living in Corpus Christi for 30+ years and have no desire to make a change thanks to the easy access to fishing and the clean beaches

RV park available, restaurants and restrooms and showers are available. Great place to go out on a pier to be out over the ocean. Nearby horses to ride or just a great beach walk. Please clean up and do not litter! Thanks!

This area is great because it is close to the Bob Hall Pier and nearby eateries. The campsite for tent is still under construction. The bathrooms need a major upkeep. The showers and sinks are not clean. There is not enough commodes and shower stalls...More
