Me and my wife have camped out at this park for many years. The beaches are very clean and well packed to drive on. The fishing jetties are great for fishing. dig a hole, start a fire, spend the night.

Another beach you can drive out on and also camp out if you wish for a small fee, plenty of room and great views.

A great place to enjoy the beach. I personally prefer beaches with fewer people and barbeque areas and Mustang Islands was a perfect fit. The drive to Mustang Island is very beautiful and the water temperature was really great. I even spotted a mongoose in...More

Yes you can but there are no hook ups-they call it their primitive camping area and you'll see everything from tents to cars to RV's! You can have campfires on the beach, too! Not at the RV park 👍🏻
