Pioneer RV Resort

Pioneer RV Resort has a noticeable lack of trees, but all sites include a nice grassy area to set up for comfortable outdoor eating. The beach and boardwalk are both a short walk away and the boardwalk allows biking so bring your wheels with you. The birding in this part of the country is some of the best in Texas so expect to see plenty of cranes and spoonbills as you take a relaxing hike. In addition to area-wide activities like deep sea fishing and swimming the resort itself features activities like aerobic classes, dancing, bunko, bridge, horseshoes and shuffleboard. Pets are allowed if kept on a leash although there are certain restrictions. You must get approval for pets over 50 pounds and you might as well pass on by if you are thinking of bringing a pit bull, Doberman or Rottweiler. Nearby attractions include the USS Lexington aircraft carrier and the Corpus Christi Greyhound Park.
