Go RV camping right on the beach in the Corpus Christi area.

If you own an RV, life on the beach becomes an affordable reality. Just head to Corpus Christi, where you'll find more than 100 miles of beautiful beaches with a number of Corpus Christi RV parks just steps or minutes away from the sandy shoreline. Here, you can enjoy the good life: beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico and resort-style amenities that are available at the RV parks in the Coastal Bend.
For example, Tropic Island Resort boasts two swimming pools and is just minutes away from Tropic Island's main docks. Laguna Shore Village offers free cable TV and beautiful views of the Laguna Madre. And then, there is Colonia del Rey, which hosts fun events and games so you'll never be bored in between time in the surf and sand.
Traveling with Fido? No worries. A majority of Corpus Christi RV parks are pet-friendly, including On the Beach RV Park in Port Aransas. As its name implies, the park is located right on the edge of beach, which means you'll fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves. And for those without a car, a convenient trolley stop is located right outside of On the Beach RV Park. Just hop aboard, and you can get to town or a number of other points on Mustang Island.
Corpus Christi's mild winters make this coastal city a year-round destination, especially for the RV crowd known as Winter Texans. In fact, according to a report published by Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, approximately 1 million visitors a day flock to the Coastal Bend during the winter.
