“No-cost camping on the beach”

Can't beat the price, or the view; How often do you get to camp on the beach? Just pick an empty spot on the beach and have fun. Enough said.

“Watch the Tides!”

We LOVED camping here, for the 5 days that we were at Padre Island until our last afternoon when we opened the door to walk our dog waves were lapping at our wheels! We packed up faster than we ever had and got ourselves out of there.

Padre Island is an incredible place to camp, though I don't think I'd do it again.
