Colonia del Rey RV Park is a full service private park. Colonia del Rey means "Colony of the Kings" and this park is well deserving of that title. It is the "Highest Rated RV Park" in Corpus Christi and Trailer Life gave Colonia del Rey an excellent 27.5 out of 30 rating - 10 on restrooms, 9.5 on facilities, and 8 on location!
The roads are paved and big rigs should be able to maneauver easily. The park is well treed and landscaped and most sites have lots of shade. If you plan on visiting some of the Corpus attractions, ask for coupons and savings at the front desk. The park is conveniently located to shopping, plenty of restaurants, and a freeway to quickly access the downtown attractions or the beach.
