My wife and I went on an early fall outing to South Padre Island during October and stayed five nights at this KOA location in our 5th wheel RV. The location and service at this campground is great. We were greeted with a friendly smile during check-in and afterwards, we were assisted to our pull thru RV site. The camping...

I loved the fact that it was so quiet and we were the only English on the campsite. When I travel I like to be with locals/other nationalities to get a real feel of another country. We booked the loft for 3 of us just so we had lots of space. The loft was fantastic for us,all the amenities we...

we have stayed twice here, once in a cabin, and once in one of those big silo tanks that have been converted to 'hotel' rooms. The 'tank' room, hallways, smell mildew-y, and the cabins were passable for as clean as you can get for an area that gets high traffic of people wet with sand and surf. It was okay....

This was a good RV park. Gravel parking pads with stamped concrete patios mostly. A nice restaurant with a pier at the end. Bay side. Quiet. Courteous staff. New washers and dryers in the laundromat. Good location!

We have been here several times but not in the past 6 years. I'm not sure if management changed or what has changed but it was really not the same. We went in late May before the summer rush. The pool needed some TLC, the grounds were OK but not great and the office closed early. Maybe just having a...

We enjoyed our stay at this KOA. Koa's are always nice and clean. I really wanted to face the gulf so that was a little of a downer. On the upside it was very close to Isla Blanca park and Pier 19 for great for and beach. The staff was awesome.

Staff were very accommodating and very pleasant. We arrived and booked a chalet unfortunately there was no a/c in one of the rooms so we asked at the office if we could move, they placed us in a condo above the office, which was clean and quiet. No major issues with property except it could do with a bit of...

I typically hate campgrounds because the camping spaces are SO SMALL compared to State Parks. And this place is the same - VERY SMALL CAMP SITES - BUT the sites were so nice, clean, and well managed that I didn't hate it. They offered many different kinds of sites: pull through, handicapped, multiple use, etc.. it seemed like a very...

We have stayed at the KOA South Padre Island several times. We use to have a travel trailer but now stay in their deluxe cabins. The cabins are located right on the bay with beautiful views. They are well equipped even including a very clean outdoor grill and table with chairs. The cabins are perfect for families looking for something...
