I read that they are going to be renovating the buildings and that's why they are charging the $10 entrance fee. The beach in front of our condo was much cleaner and more scenic.

Charge of $10 to enter. If you are camping or fishing it may be worth the fee but if you are sight-seeing or going to the beach there are cheaper alternatives. Nice statue honoring those lost at sea.

The county charges to enter...guess people think it is a cleaning fee and they don't have to be responsible with their dirty diapers, trash AND fishing junk. Can't walk the jetties without seeing frozen bait cartons, personal trash, tons of discarded fishing line...some with hooks attached...total hazard to walk the area. They ought to prohibit fishing for about 1 year... More

Their beach was by far the cleanest of all the spots we visited. Pet friendly. Gorgeous views and the best surfing spot in Texas. You really can't ask for more.

There is a lot of potential in this RV Park. But with it being operated by the county and knowing the way counties and cities operate. They are siphoning the income from the park and placing it into the general budget ,and really not giving the park enough money to make improvements with. All in all it is a great... More

Isla Blanca Park is a beautiful place for rv camping as well as to spent the day for fishing, beaching, kayaking or water sports and use on of the cabanas with fire pits for a BBQ with a view. We stay there all day ($10 entrance for car), throw the kayak in the channel, have a swim in the beach... More

This is our first time staying here but we have family that have been coming to Isla Blanca for years. We are staying for two months and we feel like we own a little piece of the island. Prices are cheap in the off season for camping and local food. The beach is a short walk from our site and... More

Our timing was probably wrong when visiting here. There was a big queue to get in and we drove around and had trouble parking. There were a lot of people there fishing and it seemed very popular. There are some facilities there but i preferred driving further up the beach where it was quieter to enjoy our time on the... More

The rates in this park were very reasonable. Close easy walk to the beach. The sand was clean the beach was not very crowded. Twice the park water was turned off for repairs, so we didn't have water for the trailer. They didn't tell you they were shutting off the water. This place is close to everything. Good spot if...
