“Nothing fancy, but close to the beach”

Reviewed May 10, 2017

Overall Rating

Mustang Island State Park is close to the beach. That sums up the reasons to stay here. It is really a large parking lot with 48 back-in water-electric spaces that are able to accommodate any size rig. We parked our fifth-wheel, unhooked, and drove our truck out on the beach for extended beachcombing and chilling. The sites are fair... more

“Tight sites, parking lot style camping”

Reviewed Mar 05, 2017

Overall Rating

This is parking lot type camping. The sites are super close together and there is no privacy. Many sites end up being like buddy sites where your outdoor living area is somewhat shared with a neighbor. We were very blessed to get the best site at the park which is site #48. That site is on the end with no neighbor on the outdoor living... more

“I'd camp here again”

Reviewed Jan 13, 2017

Overall Rating

We were camping in the area over Thanksgiving of 2016. We made a reservation at Mustang Island SP because we were driving a long way and wanted a guaranteed location. We worried about whether we could find a spot in Malaquite and didn't know if we'd like camping directly on South Beach at Padre Island National Seashore. We ended up ... more

“If you there for the beach, it's a great campground”

Reviewed Sep 22, 2015

Overall Rating

Mustang Island isn't the prettiest campground, but it's location is great. Easy access to the beach and Port Aransas. You can drive on the beach. The wind blows constantly off of the gulf. Water is warm. Air was too over Labor Day weekend. I think if we go there again it won't be in summer. But, we had a great time anyway.

“Great location - close to the beach, Port Aransas, and Padre Island National Seashore”

Reviewed Apr 16, 2015

Overall Rating

We camped here in March, 2015 in a 35 foot fifth wheel. The rate shown does not include the daily per person entry fee. We camped in site 17 at Mustang Island. The campground, located just behind the dunes, is a large, paved parking lot with back in sites on two sides. There is a grassy area between most sites. Each site has water a... more

“It's all about location and that's why we would stay here again.”

Reviewed Jan 10, 2015

Overall Rating

This is parking lot style camping. Each campsite has a picnic table with cover, water and electric with an onsite dump station. They also offer primitive campsites but the sand can be quite soft. Best for tenters only. The restroom is located at the far end of the campground near the ranger office and not centrally located. The re... more
