Fun in the Sun

Families have been enjoying Lake Corpus Christi State Park for more than 80 years. Come for the water sports, varied wildlife and relaxing atmosphere. Leave refreshed!

Things to Do
On water, you can swim (no lifeguards), paddle, fish, boat, and water ski. On land, you can camp, hike, bike, geocache, and bird and nature watch. Rent one of our pavilions for your next gathering.

Fish in the 18,256-acre Lake Corpus Christi. Anglers pull in largemouth and white bass; crappie; blue, channel and flathead catfish; and bluegill and redear sunfish. The park has two lighted fishing piers, one of which is 400 feet long and wheelchair accessible. We also have two boat ramps and two fish cleaning shelters. You do not need a fishing license to fish from shore or pier in a state park!

Stay in one of our screened shelters, cabins or campsites. Choose from a basic campsite with water only, sites with water and electricity, or full hookup sites (with sewer).

Birding is rich and diverse here. This area is an important stopover for Neotropical migrant birds. We’ve identified more than 200 bird species in the park.

Paddle on the lake! Bring your own, or rent a kayak or paddleboard
