I love this beach. Always enjoy every time . Water is beautiful. Clean no trash . portapotty, picnic tables, trash cans available . Usually little crabs running around. Lots of beach all to yourself
Amazing! Bring huge kites with tons of string or you will feel left out!
It’s not bad for a Texas beach campground. Very little shade, picnic areas could be a bit bigger- it’s texas a s it’s hot, shade is a must.
Not a lot of sites but was clean and great showers unfortunately it was destroyed by hurricane Harvey
you are camping right on the beach. you will wake up to the sounds of the ocean, and gorgeous sunrises. since you are right on the beach, bring baby powder to remove sand from your skin. the restrooms here (prior to the hurricane) were not great. the campground has been closed since the hurricane, but they are building new restrooms and they are looking really nice! I’ve seen amazing sea life on this beach including: sea turtles, stingrays, starfish, and blue crabs. I’ve also had a great time shelling on these beaches. you can’t have public display of alcohol because it’s a Texas state park- so it’s not a party spot. however, if you are looking for a peaceful, quiet place to build a campfire and watch the waves roll in, this is your spot.
We have family that lives in Flower Bluff (basically Corpus Christi) and Mustang Island is just 15 miles from Flower Bluff. We usually do Thanksgiving at their house so it is convenient for us to stay here. It is a nice clean beach with some great fishing spots. (Fishing is free and legal in state Texas state parks without a license.)
The beach is away from the touristy areas of Corpus! They do have RV hookups up from the beach, but they have primitive camping directly on the beach with a permit, which is what we do. It is only a short walk to the bathrooms and covered picnic tables. It is just 5 dollars to get in, or free if you have a State Park pass. There is also a little store in the park with snacks and stuff but nothing to fancy. Also bathrooms are port-a-potties, but hey! it's the beach!
You can swim, fish, kayak or hike! The hiking trails are nice, just not a whole lot of shade. Very easy trails nothing to extreme, but great for kids! They also have a wonderful paddling trail along the coastline , so don't forget the kayak!
There is lots to do around the park as well. If you have kids, which is our main concern when going new places, there are a lot of educational attractions. There is an aquarium in Corpus. Don't expect Sea World, it is smaller, but just as fun. There is also the USS Lexington which is my little boy's favorite! You can go inside and tour the ship, plus there are airplanes parked on the top!! We also saw some Sea turtles being releases back into the wild so make sure you check for events around you!!
The beach here is beautiful, however it’s so hot. You almost have to toss your gear out if you are out there for too long. The winters are a bit better but they are still pretty humid.
Love the beach you will love it there
The idea of camping on the beach is cool but be prepared for high wind, lots of sand everywhere, and the hot sun. We also went in the summer time so maybe it's better in the fall or spring. Still had a blast though and of course the kids loved the beach and playing in the water and sand.
One side is the bay and the other is the ocean, lovely water views everywhere. Some of the beach shelters are pretty cool but everything is still exposed to the weather (heat, sun, wind) and your neighbors. There are a ton of sites at this campground and some are right along the water. Overall it’s nature focused, so plan to spend time here just chilling and relaxing with wildlife.
