Directions

Directions
From I-37 take exit 4-A south onto TX-358 east. While on 358 you will see signs for the NAS-CCAD Base. Stay on TX-358 / South Padre Island Drive and watch for the exit for NAS-CCAD , which is just prior to the causeway crossing over to Padre Island. That exit is a flyover across the highway that puts you directly onto NAS Drive and straight on to the Main Gate. In the event you do miss that exit, in 1/4 mile you can take the Walton Drive exit, turn left at the end of it and follow that road a short way until it merges onto NAS Drive and on to the Main Gate. When entering the NAS through the Main Gate, NAS Drive becomes Lexington Blvd. Continue straight on Lexington. At the 2nd stop sign, which is at the ocean, turn right onto Ocean Drive. Follow it almost to the end and you will see a sign for a right turn to take you to the Marina where you check in with Outdoor Rec.

Another successful adventure! This RV park has gotten better every time we visit. There were fewer sticker burrs and mosquitos than our last 2 visits. Not sure if it was a coincidence. Navigating into and out of this park is super easy and all spots are wide and plenty long enough to accommodate the bigger toy haulers. Again, the commissary and exchange are adequately supplied. Nothing against the RV park but the gas station on base has been out of commission for over a year and a half. So, get your fuel on the way in or way out. The Walmart is within 2 miles of the gate and there is an HEB gas station just across the highway. God bless America!!!

We just can't say enough good things about NAS Corpus and the campground. If you're late, your camp package is at the door of the sailing center, under the porch, waiting on you with all the info you need to be successful. The staff is great and helpful too. We did not use the laundry or the rest room/shower so we can't speak to those; but, the commissary, barber shop, exchange and auto center are excellent. The auto center has air/water for your vehicles if you need it and some oil/air filters, windshield wipers, etc. In the past, we have had to change our arrangements last minute and this has never been a problem. Ava at the desk is awesome and goes out of her way to help. Remember, if you are DAV and NOT retired, you will have to stop at the gate and register yourself and your guests if you have any. If you arrive after the pass office closes, the guards are kind to let you through for the night as long as you take care of that business the next day. In the past, the mosquitoes and ants were bad; but, this time, not so much. We were told by the MWR folks at the awesome golf course that they had been spraying for bugs which reduced the ants and mosquitoes. Make sure to visit Malaquite Beach and go on south to drive on the island. You can drive 80 or so miles down Padre Island if you have 4WD. Go Navy!!! God bless America!!!!!!

We stayed only 4 days in the grass sites next to the check in office. They were fine and I believe there is more space between the sites than the ones with the concrete pads. Unfortunately there is NO shade, except a couple lucky people! Even then it is minimal! Yes, it’s breezy. I was able to deploy my awning for a while a couple days. We left early because our a/c had a hard time keeping our 38’ class “a” comfortable. In shaded areas it works just fine. We’ll be back, but not until late fall or winter. The golf course was nice and green (all brown last November). They had just punched the greens, but I still had fun. Just have to drink lots of Gatorade, particularly this time of the year.

Before any other comments there are two important things reviewers need to know: 1. If you call the Navy's toll-free NAVYBEDS number for reservations, they will tell you the NAS-CC campground is closed due to COVID. That is incorrect; the campground is NOT closed. Call the extensions ending in 94 or 95 so you can speak to a person (vice voicemail greeting) and they will help you. Super friendly and supportive! 2. As other have commented, the Site B campsite is infested with ground burrs ("goat heads") that will torture your dog's feet and drive the poor thing crazy. I don't know if the burrs are seasonal or year-round, but they are definitely troublesome. Other basic things to know: The base has two campgrounds--Site A and Site B. Neither have pull-through sites; they are all back-in. Site B appears to be the more modern of the two and it is the one closest to the water. Site B has 30-amp sites and 50-amp sites. The 50-amp sites appear to have been upgraded and have nice concrete pads with full hookups. The 30-amp sites have full hookups also, but not nearly as new. Overall the entire range of MWR facilities at NAS CC are far past their prime. The campground hosts are super friendly and do their very best to keep the facilities clean and orderly, but they can't fix the roads or repair the buildings in dire need of maintenance and overhauls. We're grateful to the volunteers who provide this service. Our visit was pleasant, but we would not go out of our way to return. And that's a shame because it is obvious that this was once a wonderful place to camp and play. It only needs some TLC to return it to it's glory days. During the long weekend we were here the wind blew so hard every day no one could put up an awning. I don't know if it is always windy here along the Gulf, but it really diminished our overall experience. Of course the base and MWR can't control the weather! Be advised.

Site was good, like other reviews say water view. Stickers are horrible, poor dogs feet were so tender from pulling stickers out. There is no way to the dog run without going thru a sticker patch. Nice runs once you get there though. We were here during the record breaking cold and the base did a great job keeping the water running, they gave plenty of notice on the winter precautions. Over all just an ok experience, probably will not come here again since the dogs could not enjoy themselves! What can I say, we live for our fur babies!

They have two areas and they offered us our choice of the two sites available, both on the marina side. Drove across the grass per their instructions to get to our site (rig parks on grass right next to concrete pad). Roomy site with a picnic table and we sat outside enjoying the sunshine for a bit until it got too cold in the breeze. Commissary and Navy Exchange not far away, easy to get to. Best thing is the view of the beautiful blue water--suspect almost every site at the park has some sort of water view. Would stay again given the chance.

This was our first time at NAS CC and it did not disappoint. It was a little windy, but other than that, the weather was great. The sites were concrete and level and no issues with the hookups, all worked as they should. The bathroom facilities were clean and more importantly....warm for morning showers. Garbage cans are plentiful and there are a couple of buildings throughout the camp where you could have a large gathering inside. The beaches were mostly clean, except for a dolphin carcass that had been on the beach for the four days prior to our getting there, and was still there when we left. The only other negative is the amount of goathead stickers in the grass. My dog would not even go in the grass after the first night due to the number of stickers in his paws. I would go back again, but my dog will wear booties next time.

We made another 10 day golf vacation here at NASCC and loved it. I can’t say enough good things about the park and the staff. Yes the goat head stickers are horrific but South Texas is full of them. On a good note, the mosquitoes were not around since the cooler weather was upon us and the golf was very pleasant. Again, the exchange is perfectly stocked and the commissary more than adequate. If you are service connected and NOT retired, you have no sponsorship privileges. This means you will have to register your spouse in the gate office. This could take some time so be prepared and have their ID handy. Initial check in at the park requires dog vaccination records so be prepared for that as well. COVID protocol and masks are required in all buildings. Enjoy and God bless America!

We were very pleased over all with the facility. The concrete pads were very helpful for my wife who uses a walker. If you venture out in the "grass" you'll end up tracking goat heads into your rig. I feel sorry for kids and pets as goat heads are everywhere! The staff in the office is very friendly! We needed some unexpected repairs (both satellite dish and water heater crapped out) within 2 days of each other. Dorthy in the Marina office gave me the name of 3 mobile RV services and I used Mel with Gulf Coast RV Services. He was great! So, if you find yourself in need of repairs, he comes highly recommended! Much to my surprise the golf course is mostly brown grass, except for the greens, which were in pretty good shape. Since I'm a lousy golfer & use to paying in the ruff, it was "ok" for me, LOL! The price is right, $20 for twilight (13:00) during the week (including a cart). If you like fried seafood and Mexican food (including seafood) lots of good restaurants are in the area. A rather unique item to this area is "driving" on the beach! On both Padre Island and Mustang Island you're allowed to drive on the island and park right at the waters edge. Folks put their beach chairs in the surf and just chill out. It looked like one can walk 50+ yards out into the surf and only be chest deep. This time of the year the water temperature is 76 degrees, just right. Fishing is very big here as well as crabbing, snapper being pretty plentiful I was told. We'll come back again!

Our first time on the base in 25 years! This is an excellent park, in our opinion. The sites are spread out and at least 50 feet apart with full hookups. Ava in the office was amazing and helped us with a few snags in our reservation, dogs, etc. Seems like the gate's hand held scanners are touch and go. Sometimes they scan your ID and you're told to go ahead, and other times, they scan your ID and say you're not in the system even though you've been to the pass office and been cleared. I guess this is something that will get better over time. Mosquitoes are horrific most of the time. You get a small break from 2-6pm or so, then they are back on the hunt. Common to coastal areas of Texas though. Commissary and exchange are more than adequate and there is even a Panda Express in the exchange parking lot if you enjoy that sort of food. Mustang Island is within 15 minutes and has great gulf beaches. We enjoyed our time here and will return for another stay. God Bless America!

First time on Military RV facility, new law new opportunities for disabled, Purple Heart veterans. There is a rule concerning vacant RVs. I have seen 3 RVs in spaces unattended for over a week, hope this isn’t normal. However it is the norm.

Traveling to South Texas, we made reservations by phone to Corpus Christi RV Park. The rate was $17/night. We paid a total of $34...nothing additional. Arriving to the installation, the roads were fair to poor, signage was not impressive but eventually landed us to the RV sites. Finding the Marina/Check In area was another challenge, but we eventually found it. Walking in to the office, there were several young ladies working the desk. I gave my name and info to one lady, then was passed off to another, and finally the third lady assisted. They highlighted three sites on a park map and asked which one I wanted. I picked site 74. Once we checked in and supplied our Vet health certificate for both dogs, we were headed to our campsite. It was 30 amp, with water and sewer. The only catch...this particular site had hookups on the wrong side. We backed in to the site only to discover the hookups were on the passenger side. Sewer was on the correct side but electric and water were on the passenger side. Fortunately our cord was long enough to reach. The site was fairly level. The park is on the water. There's really no beach area and hurricane damage is still evident. I understand there is a dog park but it was damaged in the storms and has not been rebuilt yet. The grass/sand spurs are prolific. Each trip with the dogs required despurring their legs before entering the RV. During our stay it was very windy. We were not able to raise our antenna due to the wind. But, we were still able to get a few channels. Verizon reception was very good. We will stay here again when in the area. It was very affordable.

Nice campground, no shade and very windy (you are on the gulf coast). Campsites are minimal but adequate. 30/50 amp, water and dump. Do not let them fool you. There are no "pull-through" sites. A pull-through requires you to pull straight in and onto landscaped areas. Bring your own BBQ. Nice for a weekend stay but no longer. Easy access to the Exchange and Commissary. No on-site manager after hours. Saw quite a few homesteaders, even one in a home-made rig. WiFi was available but spotty at times, but not a show stopper.

We stayed 4 nights with a 22' trailer. We needed only 30amp connection. They have a small number of asphalt, 30amp connections for a good rate of $17. These 30amp sites. with full hook-ups, are the furtherest from the shower house and washeteria. The 50amp sites with larger concrete parking spots are $20. Check-in staff at the marina were very nice and professional. Shower House/Washeteria was always clean -- good daily maintenance. It was very windy every day we were here -- about 15 - 20 mph, plus gusts. No one could put their awnings out, and I didn't see anyone cooking outdoors or lounging outside their RV. There are no trees to shelter you from sun or wind. Temp was okay, mid to upper 70's but still no comfortable outdoor activity. There was still visible damage around from Hurricane Harvey. There used to be a nice fishing pier by the campground that was damaged and now not useable. Various buildings on base had roof damage and some activities have moved or are being repaired. Both the Commissary and NEX are small but adequate. We bought a few items at the Commissary, but the nearby off base HEB, Walmart, etc. are better stocked and and in many cases cheaper by a few cents. More and more it seems like the on base facilities aren't really doing a service to our troops anymore when compared to off-base providers. Campground has a modest recreation room with kitchen, tv, and tables to play games. Couches for TV viewing weren't too comfortable. It did not seem to be used very much. Several residents may be permanent party, homesteaders, etc. Some RVs were parked on sites and never seemed to have any occupants -- like they are stored there.

We stayed in a back-in site that was concrete with a nice size patio/parking area. Our site was at the park entrance so was further way from the water. With the wind and fog I dont know I would want to be any closer to the water. We have a 42’ 5th wheel and had to put our back stabilizers down in the grass, so it would have been nice to have a pad about 10’ longer! Park is very clean and quiet. Plenty of room to walk the dog and ride your bike. Free wi-fi, no cable ( but satellite work great), picnic table, free laundry. Base has a small commissary and exchange. Great location to visit Padre Island and the USS Lexington. Sites and entire park is so spacious….lots of open areas.

We could not get a reservation here. Tried about a month out, no luck. Tried a day out, no luck. We ended up staying about 1 mile down the road. We did visit the RV Park just to see what we were missing :( The park was nice, spaces were large, and the pads were all concrete. It is nice and close to the water. The Laundry and restroom buildings look nice but I didn't stop and go in them. Looks like a really nice place to stay, I would absolutely try to stay here again.

Had a short stay to see the Lady Lex and the Texas State Aquarium. Weather was crappy and had to stay one extra night. The staff was very helpful and made it a non issue. I must say the staff this visit was light years better than the staff a few years ago. we had a LONG pull through site, which made it great for our over 65 foot set up. only drawback was the guy next to us was not active duty, a veteran or DOD. He was a civilian and he looked like he had homesteaded. I mentioned this to the staff and he cleaned up his site overall great time was had by all.

Just checked in at Corpus Christi FamCamp. They told me as of Oct 1 2017 all sites are now $20. I made reservations in May 2017 for $18 and I said I have confirmation for $18 so they gave it to me at $18 instead of $20. The only thing I can tell is so far the wifi is good for emails. Site is concrete and flat. Office staff makes check-in very long and difficult. Friend had 4 people in front of him and it took an hour to check-in. When I checked it I was the only one and it took 15 minutes and the issue was the printer and the computers they have.
