typical Texas beach park

Good place to park and access the park if not staying in one of the hotels on the beach. Nothing special. Nothing more than a place to camp or get to the beach

We love staying here in our RV. It's well run, the people are friendly and the beach access is wonderful. Full hookups available and various types of RV sites are available to suit your needs. We ofter walk over to Dirty Al's for take out since we like eating outside by our coach. The calamari is my favorite. The park... More

Great place but it cost us $10 for the day. it is a beautiful inlet park and beach, jetty. So pretty. If you like to fish you may be able to do well there if you know what you are doing. The RV park looked cool with a nice boat ramp. Waves could be happening when its good. Generally a... More

RV and tent Camping, great mile-long beach for sunbathing, swimming, surfing, paddle boarding, volleyball, hiking, biking, picnicking, jetty fishing, dolphin or bird watching! Pavilions, bathrooms, bait shop, boat ramp, concessions, and good parking. As Winter Texans we enjoyed great weather and blue skies without the huge crowds of spring or summer.

If you don't want the hassle of risk getting stuck in sand Isla Blanca has a huge Pavillion by the beach. Just park it and walk to beach on warm soft sand. Beach is cleanest beach in Gulf of Texas. Bring your picnic food, or get to go food at Pavilion under shade with plenty of tables to take in... More

Great place. We don't need any bath house etc. so can't comment there but the rest of the park seems fine. Great location. Best looking campground around here we've seen. Doesn't have a pool for what it's worth but we aren't much on public pools anyway. Staying a couple weeks and maybe longer.

I had read some variable reviews and what not sure what to expect, but this park was clean and absolutely gorgeous. The beach is great for all ages - lots of shells, surf stays shallow a good while, clean bathrooms, lots of picnic tablets. A beautiful place to spend a day or more.

We stayed here 2 nights in a spot close to the beach. The site was gravel with a concrete patio. There are no fire rings. The roads are paved. Also, as we found in most of the campsites we stayed in during a week of travels along the Texas gulf coast, stickers or sand burrs are a problem. They were... More

We bought a weekly pass for $25 vs. a $10 daily pass and visited nearly every day of our trip. This seemed to be the best place to find shells and also the best place to fish. A bonus is the beautiful scenery and lots of dolphin sightings.
