Not true. You need a license to fish in Texas from shore or pier. If you are in a Texas State Park you can fish waters there, if the waters are wholly contained within said park.

We stayed at Bayview RV Park.
They were not there to check us in, no paperwork, etc.
We were assigned a site.
Pulled in, found it to be full of sand burrs, and lots of
fire ants.
Moved across the road to another site.
WIFI was advertised as good.
The towers had been taken down so the only WIFI was at the
clubhouse.
We did not receive a gate code, went out for supper, returned
and found the gate locked at 4:00 PM.
We got there at 6:30.
My wife said she would go and find someone to ask for a code.
NO LIGHTS IN THE C/G.
LOTS OF POTHOLES
She badly sprained her ankle in one of the craters.

Would not recommend this park to my worst enemy.

Luckyd,
When did you have this most unfortunate experience at Bayview? Was it recent? And did you stay there for the rest of your time in the area or did you move to another park?

This was approx. seven weeks ago.
We left the next day.
As the saying goes....the older you get , the longer it takes to heal.
My wife is still feeling some slight pain when walking on sand or uneven ground.
Needless to say, this put a real damper in our sightseeing.

Could not believe they also have a MANDATORY $3/day for cable, even if you
use a satellite

Actually we're both a little wrong....

You can fish from shore or pier at a state without a license or anywhere if the waters are wholly contained in the park. Being that the gulf isn't WITHIN the park, you're limited to shore and pier without a license.

We stayed in Rockport for 3 nights about a week and a half ago. Drove in via Corpus Christi, right past the vast oil refineries and chemical factories. Then found most of the campgrounds filled with oil field workers (they get up early). Stayed 3 nights only to avoid bad weather on the road then fled to the RGV. Maybe the waterfront areas are nice but I could never forget the giant industrial machine all around.

Where did you stay in Rockport? We were at Drifters in November and it appeared to already be largely Winter Texans. Don't think I saw anyone headed to work... except park employees.

We stayed at the Circle W. Ransom Road was full, Drifters was full, several others I called were also full. Gave up and stuck it out at Circle W for 3 nights. Maybe the good places are filled up by Winter Texans and the oil field workers fill up the rest. Didn't matter as I said we were creeped out by all the heavy industry and wanted to leave anyway.
