“private and quiet beach camping”

Overall Rating

We have stayed here twice during our annual winter trips to south Texas and camped on the beach for 7 days both times. There are NO services and no dump station in this state park and shopping is 25 minutes away, so pack everything you will need for your stay. On both of our stays we were virtually the only ones camping on the beach. The few people that drove the beach there to either fish, site see or picnic. The beach was well patrolled by US Boarder Patrol and so we felt safe the entire time, even when we were the only ones camping. This is one of our favourite spots in south Texas to free beach camp.
