Get your tent camping on at Lake Corpus Christi’s southernmost campground. Sites here come with water hookups, and more importantly to serious anglers, it’s the closest campground to the park’s fishing pier. A fish cleaning station is also nearby, so you can sanitize your pier catches before lugging them back to your tent (we think your fellow campers will appreciate that; close camping quarters mean overbearing fishy smells are rather unwelcome -- although a fishy smell may be unavoidable when you’re camping in a spot called “catfish cove”).
