Welcome to Rockport! We used to be Winter Texans and decided to move here about 5 years ago! Make sure to take a trip to PINS past Port-A!


Thanks. Our first winter here but we purchased this piece of property to park our MH on. The weather here sure beats a NY winter. We've just been getting settled into the area but looking forward to getting out a little farther to experience the area.

Agree with ronfisherman. If you are even remotely interested in seeing a bird, the lower valley is for you.

World Birding Center in south Texas

I've never been to Boca Chica. but that is on my Absolutely To Do list.


Plan to visit Boca Chica at low tide and you can drive all the way down to the mouth of the Rio Grande River(about a mile or so). We did it in our Chevy Spark toad. The trick is to stay on the wet sand as much as possible.

Is the border still closed? I've heard conflicting information...ie: officially it's closed but you can still cross.


The border at Nuevo Progresso is open 24/7.


Yep, checked it out yesterday. As typical, crossing SB they don't even check who you are. Everything is open but slow. On the way back there was a little bit of a line but they never questioned our crossing at all.

General follow up:
- We spent a month in Port Aransas (north by Corpus), the park was full but lots of trailers that appeared to be just parked year round with no one there. Oddly after New Year, the park thinned out with may 25% of sites empty. I think it was locals taking the week to vacation on the beach.
- Last week we came down to Pharr. They had a $300/month deal and the park is easily 75% empty. Whole roads with no rigs at all. They also have a lot of the activities reduced. While it's a nice park and no worries about distancing, I kind of wish we had picked a park further to the east so we could pop over to the gulf.
