this park is way overrated with high price tag. You pay a lot for a piece of concrete but then their internet is so horrible that it's hit and miss...to top it all they say they have activities but they charge for activities...The activities they do have is actually sponsored by the people that come here to camp not by...

I would NOT recommend this park. This is one of the poorest managed parks my wife and I have stayed in. The front office is extremely rude and unprofessional. The lots are small and unkept. If we would have known beforehand the quality of this park, we would have definitely chose to stay at another park on the island.

The wife, dogs and I stayed Christmas weekend at Pioneer. We had a great corner lot not far from the boardwalk to the beach. Beautiful resort. Huge private beach. Very clean bathroom/shower facilities. Close to Port Aransas. We loved it here! Will definately be back! The Haswell's

Okay first off wifi wasn't working, but the pool by our trailer slot was nice, bathrooms and showers were clean and kept up, trailer slot was good size with picnic table on concrete. Even though it was a rather large RV resort it didn't feel over crowded. There was enough space between each trailer and it wasn't far from the...

Arrival was interesting on Saturday afternoon roads blocked by Intoxicated, rude people on golf carts with music so load it was hard to hear the help offered by the park employee! Constant stream of golf carts playing loud music and parked carts with music loud enough that we couldn't carry on a normal conversation. Pet leashes seemed to be optional,Drunks...

This RV park was wonderful. Our location near the back of the park, near the boardwalk to the beach and the fenced dog park was perfect. The sites are not as cramped as towards the front of the park. We looked at the other RV parks in the area and by far this one is the nicest. Very nice staff....

Be careful going to this RV park it's habit forming. If you do, from that day forward you will judge every park you go to by the Pioneer scale. From the 100% concrete drives and parking pads to the pools and board walk everything about this RV park will spoil you. The staff is friendly and always helpful. You will...

My family has stayed at Pioneer several times in the past 5 years. Our last stay was terrible. Quiet hours are not enforced at all, nor pet restrictions. There were several "pimped" golf carts riding around within the park blaring music all day Saturday. Drunk adults were in the pool with kids (mine included) using foul language. Used to be...

Pioneer RV Park is really nice with paved roads and pads. They have plenty of long level pull thrus and back ins - your choice. Nice space between pads. Easy to maneuver about the park. Private boardwalk takes you right to the beach. Good lighting in the park at nite, and lots of area if you like walking in the...

We have stayed at pioneer every summer for about 7 years but have decided not to return. The park is getting rundown - fire ants are at every site. There is no shade anywhere and it's simply too hot to be outside. With the strong breeze, you can't have your awning out. The pools are in need of repair and...
