Ransom Road RV Park

Ransom Road RV Park operates year-round for visitors to experience a short-term or long-term stay in one of the property's 128 RV sites. Located in southern Texas, the business is situated in the city of Aransas Pass near Port Aransas. The establishment's proximity to the ocean and boat docks tends to draw fishermen to the area. Fishing can also be undertaken on-site, as Ransom Road RV Park features a canal at the back of the premises. Pets are welcome to accompany guests at Ransom Road RV Park on the condition that the dogs do not exhibit aggressive behavior. Other specific guidelines are enforced at the park in an effort to create a relaxed environment, which is one of the owner's and manager's goals for the property. Generally speaking, the manager intends to help guests feel "comfortable in a worry-free" setting during their stay in southern Texas.


Ransom Road RV Park is located in Aransas Pass, Texas. The park offers a total of 128 RV units on its property, catering to both short-term and long-term stays. The RV sites at Ransom Road RV Park provide various amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and offers 30/50 amp hookups, water, and sewer connections. While the park does not offer cable TV, there are cable hookups available. Visitors should also be aware that WiFi is provided over the course of their stay. Additionally, the park features a clubhouse facility called the Captain's Den, where guests can enjoy breakfast and play games. There is a pool table and a TV in the Captain's Den as well. On some occasions, live music, potluck dinners, and other similar gatherings are hosted in this clubhouse facility. Events are hosted from October to the beginning of April. Furthermore, there are two laundry facilities and two sets of bathrooms on the premises, each with shower stalls, toilets, and sinks. A fair amount of open space surrounds the property, though there are also several businesses and residences that are established around the park.

The RV sites at Ransom Road RV Park are equipped with concrete pads that are separated by grass areas. Both back-in and pull-through sites are provided at the park, with 24 spaces in the first two rows at the front of the park being pull-throughs. The corner sites are particularly popular among guests, which the manager, Andre, attributes to their larger size and "better views" of the surroundings. A particularly unique characteristic of the grounds is a canal at the back of the property where people can fish and relax. 

With regard to the attractions in the vicinity, Ransom Road RV Park is within fairly close proximity to multiple places that can offer opportunities for boating and fishing. The park is located near the Aransas Pass Yacht Club, where people can moor their boats. Within walking distance, guests can find the Aransas Pass Aquatic Center, which features swimming pools and water slides. Moreover, Andre mentions that Ransom Road RV Park is near an event that is hosted annually in May called Shrimporee Carnival, which tends to receive a number of tourists. The Padre Island National Seashore on North Padre Island also serves as a prominent local attraction, as tourists can visit the island via ferry ride. A few notable restaurants are found in the encompassing area as well. Some of the dining options that Andre recommends to visitors include Paradise Key Dockside Bar & Grill and the Butter Churn.


Ransom Road RV Park aims to create "a relaxed and worry-free atmosphere" for everyone, as noted by the manager, Andre. Andre tries to prioritize providing a space where visitors can unwind and enjoy their stay without concerns about political views or worldly events. In other words, Andre makes an effort to foster an environment where individuals can feel comfortable being themselves and where judgment is not a concern. One former patron commented on this element of the park in a review, as they expressed, "There are a variety of people and cultures in the park and everyone is so friendly!" Andre acknowledges that while occasional interaction with guests occurs, the park generally allows people to go about their own activities without interference.

To maintain this atmosphere, the park has strict policies in place. These guidelines include a five-mile speed limit within the park and a focus on cleanliness and site upkeep. Patrons are expected to keep their sites clean and are not permitted to have items on the grass outside of designated areas, such as the picnic tables. Pets are allowed to stay at Ransom Road RV Park, but there are specific policies that pertain to pet owners. Dogs must be kept on a leash, and dog owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets. The park also has certain breed restrictions in place, although exceptions may be made based on individual dog behavior and owner responsibility. Quiet time is observed at the park from 10:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m., with the intent to create a peaceful and restful environment for everyone during the night. It should also be noted that the park enforces a five-mile-per-hour speed limit to ensure the safety of all guests and prevent accidents within the premises.

Ransom Road RV Park operates year-round, and Andre mentions that the busiest season of operation tends to take place during the summer. This is seemingly due to the establishment's proximity to Port Aransas and South Padre, which often draw tourists to the area. The demographic of those who stay at Ransom Road RV Park is primarily comprised of traveling couples. Repeat guests also constitute a fraction of the demographic, according to Andre.


The specific details about the history of Ransom Road RV Park are limited. The manager, Andre, estimates that the park is approximately 20 years old and has undergone multiple ownership changes over time. The current owners have been managing the park for around four years. Currently, Andre takes responsibility for the general upkeep and maintenance of the park. He and his wife personally enjoy "the calm atmosphere of the area" and find it a pleasant place to work.
