hdt friendly port aransas area


Recommended Posts

Glenn, there are many RV parks here in the Gregory-Portland area.  If you are going to be working in the Gregory area you might want to look at parks in the Aransas Pass to Rockport area.  If you are here in Port Aransas and have to go to Gregory everyday to work you will have to deal with the ferry at Port Aransas to go across the ship channel or go all the way around Corpus Christi(and deal with the traffic) to get to work.  Another issue to consider is the salt and rust here on the coast.  If you stay in Port Aransas for any length of time you will be fighting rust.  Staying a little further away from the coast will help mitigate the issue.  This is our 13th winter in Port A and we love the area and accept fighting the salt/rust as the tradeoff to be here.  To answer your question specifically there are only two or three parks in Port A that could probably handle your rig-Gulf Waters, Pioneer, and Port A RV Park.  We have had our rig in two of them, Gulf Waters and Pioneer and now own a site at Gulf Waters.  Mustang Island is a very popular Winter Texan area and the better RV Parks book up well in advance.  Best Wishes, Jay

For a short term stay, we were at Lake Corpus Christi State park near Mathis, TX which has full hooks and some longer pull thrus in the Javelina campground. It might be a longer drive that what you want to do. We did see a couple of RV parks off I37 near Edroy, TX that might have larger spots for a longer term.

Be advised there is major long term construction building the new bridge to Portland.  You will probably want to avoid coming down 37 to the Crosstown parkway.  188 to Sinton then 181 to Gregory might be a better route.  Agree the park at Mathis is a nice park and far enough away from the coast to avoid the worst of the salt and possibly the storms during hurricane season.  Some of our friends here at Gulf Waters evacuated to Mathis during Hurricane Harvey.  Best Wishes, Jay

I can’t help with the HDT friendly part, but we aren’t far from there, and can highly recommend a visit to the Texas Aquarium and the USS Lexington.  We just went to the Lexington on Tuesday.
