Community Profile Description

Karnes City is serene country living with all the excitement of San Antonio, the nation's seventh largest city, just 50 miles away! Corpus Christi and the world renowned beaches of Padre Island are also both just a little over an hour away. Enjoy nature's beauty (and great fishing!) at nearby Choke Canyon Lake. Our fair city has so much to offer!
