My wife and I spent three relaxing nights. Had planned on doing some pier fishing but mother nature decided to do a number on the pier. It has been closed until repairs can be completed (probably not before spring '07, per office personnel). There are sites without concrete pads, they do have covered patio/picnic tables. The sites with concrete pads have only picnic tables. Good news: the city of Corpus Christi just activated WIFI which is available within the FamCamp at no charge. TV reception with regular antenna is fair. The office personnel are great! We plan on returning again in the near future.
The park is under the operational control of the MWR and the staff at the marina, which operates the park, is friendly and will go out of their way to make a campers stay a most enjoyable one. The park itself is well maintained and has very clean restrooms and showers available for its users. The view of Corpus Christi Bay and the 1000 foot long fishing pier are just two of the things that cause people to want to return time and time again. Close by are many attractions and the base ITT offers tickets to these at reduced rates. Reservations can be made up to six months in advance the prices for the various types of sites are more than reasonable.
Made reservations for a full hookup site by telephone number listed on this site about a month in advance without problem. Person who took reservations was very nice. Upon arrival, check-in was handled professionally and by a very friendly staff. Was assigned a site and told that it was a back-in, as all the sites are. Found the site to be one of the older, blacktop, not the newer, very large concrete pads. Found the utilities were on the wrong side for backing in. Fortunately there was an open field in front of the site and I was able to make it a pull-through. Walking around later, I spotted several sites with the same problem. Some had split utilities, W/E on one side, S on the other. Camp has no limit on time of stay so the nicer, newer, large sites were mostly filled with homesteaders. The school bus even makes stops in the camp. Base Police check the camp frequently so it is very secure. Traffic was minimal. All-in-all, a very quiet camp.
Very nice FamCamp ! We also had to dry-camp along the sea wall in front of the registration office, enjoyed our stay. Have been here before and will be returning again in the near future. Good fishing on pier, bait sales in the registration office. Base gas station is on the righthand side on the way towards the main gate and can accommodate RV's.
