Thanksgiving will begin at Noon. Sign up forms will be in the Rec. Hall. 



We are pleased to announce that both the Rec. Hall and Office are officially back up and running!

Food service will resume with Friday morning breakfast, November 10, as well as breakfast and lunch both Saturday & Sunday.

The Rec Hall will open for all other activities on Sunday, November 12.

The Pioneer Office is now taking reservations for Summer 2018.

Pioneer 2018 Reservations

Did you stay 3+ months with us last summer? If so, please call 361-749-6248 to book for next summer by this Saturday, 9/30/17.

We will open up booking for shorter stays as soon as possible. Stay tuned for updates! Again, thank you for your patience.


We are excited to announce we are back open for business! Until today, only workers helping to repair Pioneer and Port A could stay onsite. But with electricity now restored to the RV sites, we will have over 300 spots open by the end of the week.

We are anxiously awaiting power to be restored to our office so that we may access the system. As soon as we’re connected, Susan will begin contacting reservations, working through payment issues and taking summer reservations.

Thank you for your patience and understand as we wade through several weeks of backlogging—and as we get back on our feet!


Thank you for all the concern as we repair. At this time, we are still waiting for power to be restored, but have made quick progress around the property. Multiple electric parts and cabins have been ordered. We will begin taking summer reservations as soon as we can get our office back up. Again, thank you for your patience!

Port A Proud

Sept 5th Update:

We have opened the park to host those helping with cleanup of Port A and surrounding areas. We are still clearing everything but we do have some pull-throughs open in the 400s for you and other helpers. We do want to warn you we are without power, water, or sewage at this point. GM, Ralph Fels has offered his cell for urgent needs (956) 451-6900. Please contact him about your reservation.


As of 6 PM Saturday September 3rd, Pioneer is almost there! We have a generator supplying power, sewer lines are back, and we are waiting for water and electricity. But we’ve made great progress on cleanup and temporary bathhouse has arrived. We now have 28 spaces with generator power and sewer hookups but still no water (non-potable water available). Pioneer is open for limited business!

We know you all have a lot of questions, and we are doing our best to get you answers quickly. Please check this post as we update with new information.

Copano Bay Construction arrived at 8 AM Tuesday, August 29 to begin clean up

Today (8/29) is the first day the Port Aransas let us in to inspect the park. We have hit the ground running. All rigs that were turned over have been righted, roads have been cleared.

By this evening we should have two forty yard dumpsters for debris and a water truck to begin rinsing the electrical gear of salt water. The buildings have been opened up to dry and we are assessing total damage. Two out of 361 pads were damaged and roads are fine. About 280 of our electrical and water hook up are good.

The buildings have water damage but were limited to about one foot of flooding in the Rec Hall to 3 inches in the Green Bath House. All buildings have some wind damage but are intact.

Thank you Copano Bay Construction!

We thank you for all the encouragement through out Harvey’s aftermath. The park sustained substantial damage, BUT, we are repairing! Reports of greater damage are false.
When power & water are restored, we intend to have all usable RV sites up and running ASAP.
