With only 33 campsites remaining, which includes one RV campsite, the time is now to secure your spot to celebrate the Easter holiday at Labonte Park!

As you look forward to the next school break, we invite you to spend it outdoors with your family at our most popular park to celebrate this holiday.


Labonte Park is a wonderful place to enjoy and connect with your family and nature! The Nueces River runs along this park which makes it ideal for outdoor camping. Come out and cast your fishing rod, ride your bike along the park, play ball on the open field and have fun! You can catch your dinner and throw it on the grill—all on the campgrounds. This is a fun-filled family tradition for many visitors at the park. Remember to pack your cascarones for your Easter egg hunt!

We ask visitors to please keep the park clean so that everyone will have an enjoyable experience.

The Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation will start accepting online reservations from park visitors to secure campsite(s) at Labonte Park for the week of April 16 – 21, 2019.

The Camping Fee of $28 will be required for up to three days of camping at the park. A second $28 camping permit may also be purchased allowing for up to three additional days of camping. RV campsites are $55 for the first three days of camping and $55 for three additional days. Each campsite will include parking permits for two vehicles. Each additional vehicle will need a $3 per day per vehicle permit to enter the park or a weekend pass may be purchased upon entry for $6 per vehicle. 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 $28. Camping Fees will offset the cost of trash pick-up and site clean-up required as a result of the holiday camping.

RESERVATIONS: The online reservation site will close at noon on April 18, 2019. Campsites are reserved and paid for in advance at Two campsite packages are allowed per customer request and payment must be made within 24 hours of reservation approval. Beginning on Friday, April 19, 2019, any vacant campsites may then be reserved on a first come, first serve basis at Labonte Park.
