Most Recent Padre Island National Seashore Camping Reviews
This is a lovely ran RV resort.

The manager is very friendly. They have laundry. They provide quarters for purchase. They have a fishing dock off the campground. A pool. And a dog park.

Enjoyable with friendly host and campers. Many full timers.

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.

Walking distance to water

Great campground close to the drive on beach. No sewer hookups, great bathrooms, and friendly knowledgeable staff.

Great beach combing

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.

Nearby attractions include Port Aransas Beach (1.2 miles), Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center (1.3 miles), and Mustang Island State Park (1.6 miles).

Beach Location

Nice sites by the beach. Tables could use some work but the sites are level and functional. County park close to the pier with a place to eat and drink.

Beautiful Gulfview Park

Enjoyed a night here before visiting USS Lexington and Port Aransas. My site was right on the gulf and the view was great. Very friendly office staff. Level site with full hookups. I recommend and will return.

Small but nice

It’s a small RV park. Very tight access to some of the pads. A very short walk to the beach.

Really nice RV park!

On the island but away from the Port A traffic. Quiet and very clean. One of our favorites.

We love this place!

Quaint, quiet and clean. Right on the water. Quick access to Port Aransas and Rockport.

Large Municipal Texas Park

This is a large City Park locates in San Patricio County in Sinton, Texas. The park contains hundreds of acres of property that include a public golf course, baseball, basketball, and soccer facilities. The park also includes a full service RV Park. The sites include full hookup for large and small RVs and vans. The sites has showers and toilet facilities. It’s location is north of Corpus Christi about an hour from the coast. This could serve as a nice stopover for folks traveling along the Texas coast or heading to Padre Island. RV sites do not have privacy and some of the sites are occupied by full timers. We have this a lower rating based on the location and overall condition of the park.
