TX: Beacon 44 RV Park wins Park of the Year award

PORT O’CONNOR, Texas — Beacon 44 RV Park has won the Park of the Year Award from the Texas Association of Campground Owners (TACO) in the medium size park category.

“We’re thrilled to receive this recognition,” said Mary Jo Walker, who co-owns and operates the park with her husband, Doug.

The Walkers are not only involved in the campground business. They also own and operate Beacon 44 Seafood Market, which carries roughly 30 different types of seafood items, including fresh shrimp caught from their boat as well as stuffed crab, crab stuffed shrimp, and crab stuffed jalapeños to name a few of our delicious items.

But while their seafood market has been successful, the Walkers knew they needed another source of income for their retirement years, so 20 years ago they opened a 7-site campground called Beacon 44 RV Park, which caters to fishing enthusiasts from Houston, Austin and San Antonio.

The Walkers have continued to expand their campground, which now has 63 sites, a 1,200-square foot club house and a one-acre fishing pond stocked with catfish, bass and perch.

“Business has been excellent,” Mary Jo Walker said, noting that Port O’Connor is a popular location for fishing enthusiasts.
