This campground could def use some TLC, but the ladies at the front are super sweet. We stayed 4 nights in a back in with full hook ups. There had been tons of rain. The camper was on a paved pad, but the surrounding areas were very muddy. It close to the interstate and very quiet.
Free camping geared towards river use (raft/kayak/canoe). Great rest stop while on the Colorado River. The next access site is 18 miles downstream. Overnight camping is available on a first-come, first served basis with 4 sites available. Each site has a picnic table and grill. Very soft sand and great shell spot.
Local kids have made this into a party spot so the authorities can get suspicious of people just camping without river use.
I enjoyed my stay, but although you are right on the Colorado river(20 ft from water) on one side and the gulf of Mexico on the other, you are also shoehorned into a small rv spot. Very nice people and although it's not my style, it is worth a stay.
This is an awesome beach to visit becoming more popular over the years but still great. Miles and miles of beaches to drive on and enjoy, plus tons of small ponds on the other side of the dunes. The small ponds contain numerous small fish and hermit crabs. But if the surf is what you want this beach is one of the best surfing beaches in Texas and also has great surf fishing or just fish the mouth of the Colorado river. This beach is one of the best.
Diverse environments to explore by kayak or hiking trail, plus horse trails, fishing, nature center, historic buildings, and a full event center.
Yay: Camping includes typical tent/RV sites or cabins. Our campsite was right along the water, which was pretty (it’s a reservoir along a river).
Nay: it’s pretty busy, but not overly loud or dirty.
Surprise: lots of wildlife here! There are events throughout the year…we visited during a charity race but that didn’t really impact our trip (aside from the campground being full). They frequently have rodeo/horse events too…very Texas! The historic church was more interesting than we expected.
This is a pretty Texas-y park with a church and event center on site. Nice wetlands, fishing, forests, lake, all very pretty but there are bugs and gators (and deer). Lots of camp site choices and many are on the water, a little shade, nice trees. Some people go out on the water for fishing pretty early so we didn’t get to sleep in but it was still really nice.
