Campground is small and tightly spaced. It was a pretty tight squeeze to get around the ends pulling our 35' 5th wheel and sites are close together. The site was grass on sand so the trailer wheels dug into the sand with the maneuvering, which made leveling a bit challenging. One of the staff helped us get backed into our site and all the staff we met were friendly and happy to give us info and a map about local restaurants. Our stay was a last minute decision and everything on Mustang Island was booked so we were happy to find a spot. - Motorcyclekelly

Laguna Shores is a no frills park- tight spots on grass and sand and dated/limited amenities, but the staff is very friendly and helpful. Management/owner is the only reason for the low rating. I decided to shorten my stay after personally experiencing how she treats staff and guests. Take your money elsewhere and I apologized to her staff for having to deal with her behavior. - 16Paws

Clean camp ground and a very friendly stuff. The view of the gulf was beautiful. Very close to grocery shopping, restaurant, and beach. - Buckeyelake1

We stayed here one night and then found a different RV park to go to. The water smelled like sewage, the electric box we had to plug into was VERY dangerous with no cover on it. someone keyed my car which I could not even park at my lot. The lawn is not maintained well which was probably the reason the mosquitoes were ridiculously terrible. Their lots are concrete if you can call it that, the cement was all busted up and we could not get our trailer to level right. I would leave no stars at all but I have to give a star to make this review. I would recommend NOT staying at this park. - fastestwelder1

First come, first serve. The sites on the ocean side were grassy with a picnic table and small shelter. Beautiful views out a rear or side window. Can be windy there. Minutes walk to the beach. The sites away from the ocean are basically in a paved parking lot. We arrived during the week and had no problem finding a site. Our TT is 31 ft. Saw motorhomes & 5th wheels larger than us. There is a dump station with fresh water. You do get a bit of salt spray, especially if it is windy. - debdana

This is a great campground if you want to be near the beach. No hookups. The sites are a little tight but not too bad. Our coach is 43' and it was a tight fit. The sites are in two parallel rows with a road between them. There are turnarounds at each end. Good enough for big rigs. A big negative is that there is NO Verizon coverage here. None. You can get some signal if you go outside the campground near the entrance. It was also very windy when we were here. Coated everything in a salt film. Made our stay pretty unpleasant. - RoadtripImages dot com

All the sites are close together and in one long row. Half back up to the beach and half the other way. Nice sunrise across the dunes and the ocean. Bathrooms and showers were clean. The real drawback, for us, was the concert of generators that ran from late afternoon right up until quiet time at 10:00 p.m. Out neighbor's generator was right outside our bedroom window. If we hadn't had our windows closed, it would have been pretty unbearable - coming from both sides. We decided to join the band and fire our up as well. - ALbums

We have been full timers here for the past 3 years. We have stayed because the lots are more spacious than most, we have no way of moving our trailer, like our neighbors & are close to grocery stores, etc. That said we are more unhappy with the management with every passing day. Absolutely nothing is done in the way of upkeep & it becomes more obvious as time passes & things all around are deteriorating. The laundry has 6 washers & 3 dryers but one by one the washers have gone out of order until now of the original 6 only 2 remain in service. As of a few days ago the showers were put "out of order" with no explanation or as to whether they will ever be opened up or not. When I inquired of the office the reply was very vague & little attention was given to my concern. If you are willing to sacrifice any kind of dependable amenities for the sake of spacious lots this is the place but don't expect any kind of consideration beyond that. The management attitude is "take it or leave it but don't bother us about anything". Also, every few months you will have another stack of rules stuck on your door but none of it is ever enforced. If it gets any worse we will be moving if we can find someone to move us. - bill hale

We leave our RV in the park and pay full monthly rent, and visit several times a year. It was a lovely park and so serene. The last 2 church managers which owns the park have not done anything to maintain it, --the potholes are awful, most sites aren't rent-able as they have not maintained the electric in between occupants. They have opened it up to Section 8. it is no longer 55+ so serene is out the window and has been replaced with obnoxious kids and rude teens, which bring the police and shots fired. The office is not helpful nor cares a thing about a good service for you. They are doing you a favor. Run from this place! - fyste

The park is open. I stayed there and wrote a review in Feb 2007. I visited friends staying here in Feb and March 2012. Big grassy lots, concrete patios, nice rec room, many evening activities, stayed one month plus as a Winter Texan (cost $275.00 + electric at 0.14 cents per KWH). Walking distance (about 1/2 mile) to Walmart, HEB (grocery store), Post Office and several other stores. Surrounding neighborhood is a bit challenged, but found it to be very safe. Located at the entrance to the Corpus Christi Air Naval Station and you get the "sounds of freedom" (aircraft) at times (music to my ears). Several miles to the outer beach, fishing piers, and Padre Island National Sea Shore. I enjoyed the campground, mostly friendly retired folks spending the winter. I will probably return for a repeat performance. - Douglas traveler

I've posted a review of this campground previously. This update is intended to rebut the several reviews posted here that are unfairly critical of Padre Balli Park. Note that I have no interests in this, other than the fact that we've stayed here multiple times, and I want to set the record straight. One poster complained that the park staff tried to gouge them due to the size of their trailer. Total garbage; the nightly rate is $50 for the newer campsites, and $25/night for the older, 30Amp sites. Staff was following prococol; no "gouging" going on, and if these people had done their homework they would have known what to expect beforehand - and make their own decisions. People - you can't come to a full hookup campground on the Texas Gulf Coast waterfront, and expect to do it at bargain-basement prices - doesn't matter how long your trailer is. The sites are uber-spacious, clean, and have plenty of space between sites. We were there last in Nov 2019 in our motorhome, and we were totally satisfied with the experience, again, as we have been previously. - racklefratz

We arrived on Friday, May 31, 2019 at 1:30 PM. The charge was $50 per night and we planned to stay four nights so the bill came to $200. We used a debit card to settle the bill and they charged us $3.90 for not having cash. The person at the desk said the fee for using plastic would have been higher if we had used a credit card. We were told there is a $12 pass required to drive on the beach so we opted to stay off of the beach. We were given two pages of rules. One page was to be taped to inside of our truck windshield. The other page was to be taped to the inside of the window in our trailer as close to the entry door as possible. We were assigned to back-in campsite #10. We were handed a map with the route to our campsite highlighted in pink. We were given a little slip of paper containing the four-digit code that would unlock the laundry/shower and the entry gate which is closed at 8:00 PM nightly. Following the pink marker, we made our way to site #10 and backed in. The concrete and asphalt pad was very spacious and long enough to easily contain our truck and 38' trailer with room to spare. The pad was also perfectly level. There was a wooden picnic table where someone had left a cheap steak knife for future campers. We got set up and began camping which we define as "eat until you get tired then sleep until you get hungry." Bring cash! There is an additional charge for using plastic. - timnkaty

Being from So. TX and having stayed around the area, this is about as good as it gets. The new section is well spaced out and clean. Restrooms are so so and there is NO wifi. BUT you can access the beach easily and have fun and sun! - Mike G 49

We stayed here for two nights. You must disconnect the tow vehicle before you go in. It is a tight little campground but for a ocean front access that does not charge for your dogs. It is a great little place to stay. The staff was awesome, the views incredible. The beach did need to get cleaned up. The campground could be updated but I would stay again because the staff and the closeness to the beach. It was only 37 a night for 50amp , water and sewer. Very close to the USS Lexington and the aquarium. They also where pet friendly which is a awesome. - Betty Perez

Staff was very courteous and helpful. Even though they were closed when we arrived the lady came out to greet me and provide information. When I returned in the morning the man cautioned that I didn't exit east as the overpass has removed many air conditioners. The overpass is lower than the sign says. The park is on a point surrounded by water. The conditions are controlled by nature, not the RV park. If you're looking for a pristine resort for $100 per night, this isn't it. I was looking for a safe place to park my trailer and get some rest. This was just what I wanted. The space was level. - Watalotahui

This park had really bad reviews prior to our stay but it was close to everything we wanted to do for the week we stayed. This park does have some fulltimers but they are put in the back. The lots with great views of the bay are saved for the others like us. The staff was Great!!! they walked the park everyday while we where there making sure all was well. Park was very quiet the whole time we stayed . Would stay here again hands down. - para566

Contrary to prior pist, Park is NOT delisted by Good Sam. Yes, Corpus Christi Air Station has lots of flights in the entire area, not just over the Park, but they do not go into the night. Park was well maintained, but it is smaller than some. Adequate space for our 3 slides. 31' MH with tow easily fit on the pad. Have not smelled any sewer odors. Manager was super friendly. Also had free wifi and cable tv. - Catamaran Bob

The park is small, dirty, and sits next to the sewage treatment plant. I have a 39 ft. 5th wheel and my truck is 27 feet long. I was placed in a 45 foot RV pad at the end of the center section. I had no room to park except to place my tow-vehicle behind my RV turned sideways. The management came and told me I could park there. I moved to another spot that did not interfere with any one or thing. This time they sent a fat tall guy to tell me to move my truck and intimidate me. This is a trash dump run by the worst managers of any RV park. Do not even consider staying here. - FireChief

The park is small and dirty. We were there 15 days and there were areas where trash lay the entire time. It is located next to a wastewater treatment facility and we had to drive through a questionable neighborhood to get to the park. It does not look like the pictures posted on their website. Management was sometimes unfriendly and impolite. Would not stay here again. We are full time RV'ers and left early due to issues previously stated. - Retiredandontheroad

We stayed on the north beach, partly due to the government shutdown. It was AMAZING. The motorhome was fine driving on the beach. You literally camp on the beach. We have two dogs and so did most campers.
No concerns during high tide.
Camping is free.
Cell phone coverage was good WITH WEBOOST AND EXTENDED ANTENNA.
saw only one coyote and lots of crabs. Saw a few jellyfish.
Lots of room between campers. There are no “sites” you just pick a spot. There was a dumpster at the beach road entrance. Would definitely go back. There was a dump station at the malquite campground. - Klappa

It is not the camping area that gives this a 10. It is the location, the sea breeze, the miles of sand beaches and the amazing sunrises that gives it a 10. The price is good too! The camping spots for RVs are in two lines- smaller RVs, trailers and tents on one side on gravel and grass. Larger RVs and fifth wheels on asphalt, parking lot style with large numbered places to park and picnic tables separating the areas. The advantage of the parking lot in a motorhome is being able to see the sunrise and ocean from the front window. There is a long boardwalk to the Gulf of Mexico and wide sand beach. You can have a fire on the beach with a fire pan or by digging a deep hole in the sand for the fire. Cold showers and flush toilets. Can drive 5 miles directly down the beach from the end of the park road with a 2 wheel drive vehicle or farther with 4 wheel drive. - NanciRV

This is a one of a kind campsite not to be found elsewhere. The day-users that jammed the campground this spring when we were here have been run off - posted signs and a camp host that enforces the rules have made a vast improvement in the campground. We also visited the South Beach camping area and found it perfect with no sand drifts and firm packed sand for easy driving. We saw several RV's of all types on South Beach and the slightly more protected Maliquite campground is nearby for when the wind gets up.
The best and worst things about this place is no hookups. I don't think it ever gets packed full, and if it does, South Beach has 60 miles of overflow parking. - Hill Country

Park is well located as a jumping off spot to visit all the local attractions. Plenty of noise during the day coming off Waldron Rd which is heavily traveled. Roads are a bit narrow and pads are crushed stone and sand. Could use some TLC in that regard. Picnic tables are a bit seasoned but functional. Laundry room is great and prices are accommodating. Pool looks nice but did not visit. Office offers discounted tickets to USS Lexington and the Texas State Aquarium. Utilities well placed for our trailer. Internet is pretty good with only the occasion knock-off. Cable reception is great. - Codys Family

Stayed here one week to explore Corpus Christi and Padre Island. Great location with easy access to both. Our site was very level concrete pad. Everyone is very nice and the park is clean and felt very safe. Biggest issue that prevented higher rating is that sites are extremely tight, just a bit too much "togetherness" going on. (And we had premium pull-through site). Shame because otherwise we would absolutely stay there again. - retiredhappyrvers

No weapons allowed on this base and no armory. Surrounding area high crime. Be ready for a lot of wind and salt covering your camper and other outside equipment. Have fire ant bait. Lovely location on the beach though, but left early because of wind which is apparently the usual. Not too great for fishing if catching and eating is the goal. Base in a very sad state of repair but had fun just the same using the facilities like bowling, fitness center, commissary and exchange, and library. Site had a constant water leak and wifi did not work most of the time. Very sketchy Verizon service in base but great off base. Some sort if regular ammo noises nearby. Mediocre at best in maintenance and roads/sidewalks pretty rough. Quite a bit of trash everywhere beach-side and replenished routinely by wind and sloppy people. We were grateful to find a safe place to take an extended travel break in this area; met a lot of really nice people at this park. MWR staff pretty nice but not real engaged in maintenance. Let the water run a long time to get warm in the showers, definitely wear shower shoes, and be prepared to wait in line or be creative about when for laundry. Equipment in disrepair but better than nothing and nice that its free. Saw lots of birds, sea life, dolphins, and not biting fish. Quite a few jelly fish too. - DeanaB

When we called to make a reservation at Campground B, Paul told us sites were assigned upon arrival. Yet when we checked in, the gal at the counter told us we had been assigned to Campground A. She said Campground B was booked for the weekend. We were given 5 sites to choose from in A. The first had some kind of construction going on. The next two were under water (thanks to heavy rains). The third had a driveway that was too narrow to get into. The last had a low hanging tree. We wound up backing in at an angle to avoid the low hanging branches, putting us on the soft grass. The electric stanchion was very far in back of the site. Walking around Campground B over the weekend, we noted 6 empty sites on Saturday and 8 on Sunday. It seems like they don't know how to manage their reservation system. NAS-CCAD seems to be on the bottom of the funding list. There were potholed roads, broken sidewalks, abandoned dog park, neglected playing field, rusty and broken storage units, and a crumbling Seawall - to name just a few issues. Campground A seems to be left to devolve on its own. Campground B is newer with concrete pads and reasonably placed hookups. The laundry was free. Hookups worked fine. WiFi was excellent. The base is small and the campground is close to the NEX and commissary. - Melodycthomas

NAS has 2 campgrounds, A & B. Camped @ "B" which has a sign for Shields. B is much nicer than A. Google maps has aerial view. PROS: Concrete pad, Picnic table, Good spacing between sites, Full hookup with sewer, Close to Commissary, Exchange, Fuel, Rec Center (kitchen, tv, sofas, AC), Close to Padre Island and downtown, Satisfactory Bathroom\shower, Laundry, Quiet. CONS: Very small beach which isn't nice, No shade or trees. If you're using this location as a base camp, works well. We spent most of our times on the beaches in Padre Island which was a 20 min drive. - jumboscott
