snowbird parks near Corpus Christi

Hi All,
Anyone have any advice or parks in the Corpus Christi? We're planning a couple months in early 2017 in our Wildcat 31re 5'r and would appreciate comments and recommendations. Currently considering Ransom Rd., Wilderness Oaks and Ancient Oaks. Good Sam reviews look OK. Anyone spent time there or somewhere near? Love to hear comments.
Thanks BaDinNC

Welcome to my neighborhood! If you're retired military, the naval air station has a decent park with all the amenities. Traffic getting on the base early in the AM and getting out mid-afternoon is an exercise in patience, however. This is also closest to downtown Corpus where there are several attractions.
If nature is your thing, head for the island and go north towards the Rockport-Fulton area. Goose Island has a pretty good park adjacent to the Aransas Wildlife Refuge. There are pads available in the wooded areas as well as near the water, I believe some are pull-through. Amenities include power, water and dump stations. The area is considered a bird watcher's paradise. Rockport itself has a lot of history and a bit of Austin-style funkiness.
Let me know what kind of environment you have in mind and I might be of more help.

I almost forgot! Best make your decision soon because this area fills up quickly in the wintertime and early reservations are recommended. There's also the issue of Eagle Ford Shale, which is a big petroleum operation not far away and attracted a lot of short time workers who filled up a few campgrounds, but I understand that has lessened considerably lately.

Haven't actually stayed in those parks, but Ransom Road has a good reputation and is very popular with the Snowbirds. It's very clean, but also in a busy area and not isolated at all, and it's across the street from a small marina. If that's ok with you then that's what I would pick.

If your heading down during DEC, JAN, or Feb. your not far enough south for great weather. As the last post said the RGV is the place to be, and one of the friendliest parks to be in is called Mission Bell in Mission great location, great people and a ton of things to do in and out of the park. PS vary competive pricing.

Last year I spent 3 months at the On The Beach RV park in Port Aransas. Decent price, next to the beach, and we could see the Gulf out of our front motorhome window. Spaces are a little tight, along with roads in park, but I've seen lots of parks like that. Weather a little cooler than in Phoenix, and fog not uncommon.

We've Stayed in Rockport the last four winters, We like staying in Rockport but if was going to stay in Aransas Pass Ransom Road RV Park would be my first choice. It's a real nice all concert park. You need to get started finding a place, the area is getting very popular and nice parks fill up quick. Good Luck

We stayed in RGV two years ago, was cool, wet and not planning on going back for winters. Whenwe were in WACO it snowed in mid Feb. We are going to AZ this winter.
