We retired and our first stay has been at Port A RV resort. Very friendly staff and guests. We already feel as though we have been doing this for a long time. Lots of neighbor activities and pet friendly too. 2 pools, a hot tub, several gathering spots, laundry, palm trees… just feels like home.
We stayed overnight while traveling. It was pretty quiet even though near 1/4 mile, the highway. Good cable tv. There are a lot of trees so satellite reception would likely be difficult. We didn’t use the Wi-Fi. The pads are gravel but relatively level. They are easily accessed. We would definitely stop here again when passing through.
The tent sites are grassy, which was very nice and the bathrooms were nice compared to what you'd find at a typical beach side facility that is also open to the public paying for its use. Note on the weekends, the bathrooms can get messy due to all the extra traffic. The rest of the time the bathrooms were clean. We paid for a $10 seven day pass into Padre National Seashore and went to that beach most of the time. It was much cleaner than IB Magee Beach.
A couple suggestions for tent camping: 1) Pack light to stay cool. It is fairly warm throughout the summer. 2) Keep the rain flap on tent. It was pretty windy the first couple nights. 3) Bring earplugs to sleep in case it is windy.
