  • Spending a Sunday afternoon on the beach at this park was quite relaxing. It was pretty quiet with not a lot of vehicle traffic and there's a jetty made of rocks for those who like to fish. So it was ...  read more »
  • Much prettier beach than port aransas. We went for the day but you can camp as well which seemed hot in august but many people were doing it, there also is not much oil from the oil spill on this beac...  read more »
  • Beautiful place! Be prepared for high winds though - especially if tent camping! Exhibits by UT oceanography were cool too! 
  • I have come to love this state park. I buy the yearly pass so I only need to pay the nightly camping fee. I do NOT camp during holidays. I primarily visit mid-week or off-season when the beach is less crowded. I love parking my little rv right on the beach. Staff friendly, restrooms ok in camping area. Camp sites have basic hook-ups for water and electric; plus a small covered picnic area for each site.
  • Those is one of the best public beach parks in Texas. They have RV or tent camping on the other side of the dunes. There is a bathhouse and decent restrooms. A outdoor rinsing shower and numerous covered benches round out the place. There is places fort on beach vehicle access as well as vehicle free area. There is a fishing jetty. The water is as good as any place in the corpus area.
  • We had such a great time day one we came back before heading out on the road again. Showers made this possible. Not the cleanest showers but hey they were there and got the job done. Hands down was hiking out to the end of the jetties, seeing a guy attempt surfing, a few sea turtles, and getting blasted with wave spray when we made it to the end. MadMae had a fantastic time catching here first wave on a boogey board. The two rangers we met were fantastic!! Big smiles and let the kid chat their ears off. Worth the $5 per adult!!!
  • This is the only state/national park right on the ocean/dunes with electricity. However, it is a gravel parking lot with very antiquated showers and rest rooms. They work, but are not great. The rest rooms were overwhelmed with beach visitors and campers, sand everywhere. One of the four women's showers was out of service the whole time (one week). That said, the staff is very helpful and the beach is wonderful.
  • Well worth 5 dollars per adult. Childern under 12 free. Could be a little more clean on beach but overall great time. Rest of my family couldnt take showers afterwards because of two broken showers and nastiness in there while two others spent forever in the two good showers.
