Hatch RV Park Overview:

Hatch RV Park prides itself on being the most centrally located park in Corpus Christi and offering huge Texas sized pull-throughs and true Texas hospitality. The park is flat, the main roads are paved, and the sites are level and you have a choice of shaded or open. If you want to be close to downtown Corpus, then this is the place to stay. Hatch is conveniently located to I-37 and is within 2 miles of lots of fun things to see and do in Corpus. A grocery store, strip shopping center, and some fast food restaurants are within 3 blocks. Hatch is pet friendly.

Hatch RV park was built in the 1930's and has been in the Hatch family ever since it opened. You won't find many parks that have that level of experience in understanding and dealing with RVers.

Amenities and Fun Things To Do:

Hatch RV Park has 127 RV sites which are a combination of pull throughs, pull-ins, and back-ins. Each site has 20/30/50 AMP service, water, and sewer hookups. Some of the pull throughs are huge, up to 24' by 85', and can accommodate the largest rigs plus your boat or trailer. All of the of the pull throughs are paved and include a picnic table. You shouldn't have a problem finding a shaded site as most sites have at least one shade tree. All of the sites are level and there is plenty of room to maneuver the big rigs and trailers. The vast majority of the sites have a concrete patio and there are a scattering of picnic tables throughout the park.

Some of the other amenities at Hatch RV Park include:

  • a large pool
  • clean restrooms and showers
  • laundromat
  • a general store with food and RV staples
  • recreation hall with a constant pot of coffee
  • heated spa
  • free Wi-Fi and free cable TV with 76 channels
  • pet walk area


Cactus Mac and Bettye (Hatch)McLaughlin have owned Hatch RV Park since 1974 and they remain committed to combining the charm of old Texas with the comforts and ease of modern RV camping and making Hatch the "friendliest RV park you've ever visited!"

A Typical Texas Outsider Day:

We stay at Hatch whenever we need a Corpus Christi fix and want to explore and play in Corpus or attend some special event happening in the area. Some of the things we love to do in Corpus include:

  • ride bikes along Shoreline Drive and stop for a good lunch or drink somewhere along the route
  • visit the 7000 gallon Texas State Aquarium, the World War II Lexington aircraft carrier, or the Museum of Science & History
  • enjoy the restaurants and nightlife - Brewster Street Ice House always has a lively crowd and good music
  • play golf
  • head to the beach for fun in sun and sand
  • go fishing


Corpus is also close to a couple of our other favorite Texas cities, Port Aransas and Rockport so we'll typically head over to either or both for the day to ride bikes, enjoy the fun bars and restaurants, play golf, or enjoy the beach.

Cool Nearby Activities:

Hatch RV Park is conveniently located to a number of fun things to see and do. Their website has a link to a lot of the nearby attractions. Make sure you check out the Chamber of Commerce website to find events and other activities. Also take a look at Texas Outside's Guide to Corpus Christi to find lots of things to see and do.

Corpus Offers a number of choices for golf courses which you can find on this Corpus Christi Golf Course Map . Our favorite course is Newport Dunes near Port Aransas. If you like fishing, you're in the right place - fish off the pier, at the beach, or rent a boat or hire a fishing guide to help you find and land a trophy or a good dinner. Get out on the bay and have fun on a jet ski.

Texas Outside Campground Rating System

Texas Outside uses a tough rating scale and it’s difficult for a campground to get a “10”.  Each park is rated on:

  • Scenic Beauty: a campground that is flat with no trees or character gets a “1” and hills, lots of trees, beautiful lake site, and lush ground cover gets a “10”
  • Park Condition:  the cleaner, well kept, and maintained campgrounds receive high scores
  • Amenities: we are looking for lots of amenities like restrooms, dump stations, playgrounds, boat ramps, shelters, concession stand, rental toys, and more.
  • Campsites:  low scores are given for sites that are right next to each other (good for getting to know your neighbors, but not what we’re looking for when we’re camping); have no lantern holder, no water or electricity, no fire pit, no grill, or no picnic table (or it’s rotten wood); have no trees and no view; the ground cover is crushed rock (my bare feet hate that stuff!); and they require a lot of work to get your rig level.
  • Things To Do: Bonus points are given for campgrounds that offer lots of fun things to do at the park or very nearby – this includes: biking, hiking, climbing, boating, entertainment, golf, swimming, fishing, volleyball, horseshoes, and more
