CORPUS CHRISTI - The Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation wants you to celebrate your Easter holiday outdoors with us at Labonte Park. Reservations for campsites are now open for the week of March 25 - 31, 2013.
Labonte Park which is located along Nueces River has long been a popular camping destination on special holiday weekends, most notably during Easter. We want everyone to have an enjoyable experience, so we ask visitors to take pride in our City park and to please keep it clean.
The new Camping Fee of $25 will be required for up to three days of camping at the park. A second $25 camping permit may also be purchased allowing for up to three additional days of camping. RV campsites are $50 for the first three days of camping and $50 for three additional days. Each campsite will include parking permits for two vehicles. Each additional vehicle will need a $2.00 per day per vehicle permit to enter the park. Overnight camping is allowed by City ordinance for a maximum of six consecutive days. A day use permit for an individual campsite will also be $25. Camping Fees will offset the cost of trash pick-up and site clean-up required as a result of the holiday camping.
Now through March 28, 2013, campsites may be reserved and paid for in advance either in person at City Hall (1201 Leopard St.), 3rd Floor, Parks & Recreation Department, or online at https://register.ccparkandrec.com/. Reservation deadline is noon on Thursday, March 28, 2013 - any vacant campsites would then be reserved on a first come, first serve basis at Labonte Park beginning Friday, March 29, 2013.
Plan now to reserve your campsite for a fun-filled time with your family and friends!
