Texas is renowned for its blazing hot summers, so the vision of holidaying by the ocean draws road trippers to Pioneer Beach Resort, a beautifully maintained camp where RVers can expect level concrete pads with full hook-ups to water, sewer, and electricity (30/50 amp). If you work online or just want to keep abreast of your emails, access to the internet and cable TV is included.
Sites are reasonably close together with grass on either side and the opportunity to park your motorhome in front of the pond with a bird’s eye view of cranes and ducks that frequent this peaceful haven. RVs are parked out in the open with a picnic table and room for a fire grill, with propane sold at the office. Some road noise has been noted by campers closer to the main road. Deluxe sites overlooking the pond range from $55 to $59 in their peak summer season, while the classic sites are $45 to $49.
If you prefer your vacation accommodation to be luxurious, the fully furnished on-site cabins are sure to please, with high-end amenities including a kitchen, bathroom, and linen. The daily rate is $150 to $190.
Restrooms, showers, and laundry facilities are immaculate, in keeping with a resort standard, plus there are two swimming pools, a hot tub, and a clubhouse where folks get together for fun events conjured up by the inventive hosts. A private boardwalk takes guests down to the beach for endless summer fun.
Pets are part of the family and invited to stay at the resort on a leash with all waste to be picked up by their doting guardians. A fenced dog park lets woofers run free off-leash, but mention the word “beach” and your pooch will be checking out where you put their sunglasses so they can dip their paws in the ocean waves. Canine champs are allowed at Port Aransas beaches on-leash; however, the resort has restricted Dobermans, Rottweilers, Chows, American bulldogs, and Staffordshire terriers from entering the grounds.
Checking into Pioneer RV Resort lets you explore the seaside city of Port Aransas, a birdwatcher's paradise only four miles from the camp. There’s something for everyone, with fishing charters, dolphin viewing, shopping, and the Port Aransas Nature Preserve featuring epic, hiking trails.
