  • I dinged it one star for no sewer hook up and no separate walking path to the beach. Yes, it's a big paved lot for RV's-but are you there to go to the beach or hang out in your RV?! For $20/night you ...  more »
  • This park is nothing more than a large concrete parking lot. There is no natural growth. Any shade comes from picnic tables with a canopy built over them. There is no sewers at any of the sites all gr...  more »
  • A beautiful stretch of beach with golden sands which is easily accessed from Corpus Christi. Would recommend carrying a beach umbrella as there were no shelters if I remember right.  more »

  • The grounds are nice and people did not appear to leave their trash everywhere like at the nearby public beaches. There are sturdy rustic covered picnic tables away from the water that made it easier to prepare and eat lunch. We did not use them but there are several portable bathrooms near the parking lot. Two PVC type pole rinse off showers, at the path to the beach, made it easy to get the sand off the kid before loading up the car. Probably a good idea to have flip flops when standing on the wet ground area rinsing off. We felt the $5 per adult fee was more than reasonable. Just educate the kids not to pick up or play with the jellyfish. ...any of them.
  • Great place, was so nice. It sorta is a pain to drive or walk back and forth but I get why you have to. We were on motorcycles but fortunately I drove my car and could taxi everyone back and forth. If I didn't have my car it would have been a nightmare toting back and forth our supplies because are camp was a long ways from the parking lot. Other than that it was one of the best camps we did on our trip and loved it!
  • Beautiful beach. Family friendly, so please do follow the rules - no alcohol or glass allowed on the beach, respect quite hrs. The water was warm so there were jellyfish in the water and they can sting, we also caught a the beautiful sunset and moon-rise (pics do not do justice). Do check out the Jetty to the North of Mustang beach too.
  • It was really nice! Very clean, and we had a really good time! A really long strip for a day visit, and another separate strip for primitive camping. Clean restrooms and showering available. Worth $5.00 per person!!! Lots of really nice sand dunes!!!
  • The place is nice and clean. There are portables along the beach, clean water and showers. Markets and stores close by. Had a great time with the family and friends camping on the beach. Ranger patrols regularly as well as helicopter coast guard fly overhead sometimes.
