SURFSIDE RV & RESORT – 1820 S 11th Street – Port Aransas, Texas

CLEANLINESS – 10/10 – This park is carefully maintained.  Restrooms are immaculate.  Plus. each shower stall is self-contained.  When you are in your cubicle, there is a shower, toilet, sink, bench, and mirror.  Totally private.  Nice water flow.

WiFi – 5/10 –  WiFi here is excellent, but I gave it a 5 because it is not free.  The company,, gives daily, weekly, and monthly rates.  I would like to say that I would rather pay for great internet, than have free that doesn’t accommodate the park.

AMENITIES –  9/10 – Pool, hot tub, cable, laundry, fish cleaning house, community room, some planned activities.

LOCATION – 10/10 – Walk to beach (1/4 mile away), Trolley Stop (free), Close to restaurants and shopping.

SITE – 8/10 – The sites are small, as is the park itself, with only 45 rig pads.  The streets are tight, and people park very, very close to the street, making it very difficult to back-in at times.

PET FRIENDLY – 5/10 – Many people here have pets.  A maximum of two is allowed per site.  They must be on a leash at all times, and never left unattended.  No dog run.

NOTE: – We stayed for one month, the longest we’ve stayed in one spot, and would stay here again.  If you have a very large rig, it probably isn’t for you.

This is our second stay here.  Unfortunately Port Aranses was devastated by Hurricane Harvey.  They are still cleaning up, but they’re on the right track.  Several restaurants have reopened.  Surfside had to rebuild, and they did.  Just wonderful.  You will be happy if you choose Surfside.
