Amazing park, located where the Colorado River goes into the Gulf. Amazing people, excellent programs at the Nature Center. Staff goes above and beyond to help. Each site is washed down and cleaned after each guest leaves. Lighted fishing piers. Take all the groceries, etc., you need as stores are about 50 miles away in Bay City. We have been camping here for years. Very quiet down here. Love, love, love it here. Lot spacing is spacious with sunny/open exposure. Site surface is a concrete pad and features a picnic table. - Cypressaggie

We really enjoyed our stay at this park. Check-in was easy and the staff was friendly. Driveways and parking pads are spacious and level. Utilities are within easy reach. Grounds are kept very clean. One of the hosts even scrubs all parts of the concrete tables after each campsite is vacated! Restrooms, showers, and laundromat were all in good shape. The nature center has a small gift shop and nature displays. If you want them, wifi and cell coverage are both good. The only down side is the $5 per person per day fee that they add to the campsite fees.
There are no shade trees, but the sea breeze keeps things comfortable. No campfires allowed but you can use your charcoal or propane grill. Our site was just a few steps from the Colorado River and its 2 fishing piers. The gulf is also within walking distance and has a very long and large pier. The beach was in pristine condition when we were there! Great sand, clean water, no trash, no seaweed, no jellyfish, and very few people!
At night the campground was very quiet and despite a few street lights, the sky was very dark, providing for excellent star-gazing. - BrentB

Lovely, low key, very well maintained park, located where the Colorado River meets the Gulf of Mexico. There are two RV loops; the south loop is closest to the Gulf and the Nature Center, while the north loop is closest to the office and the boat launch. Both loops have back-in sites on the outside of the loop and pull-throughs on the inside. All the sites are large enough to accommodate big rigs (ours is 41' plus tow vehicle) and have 30/50 amp service, water and sewer.
We had a back-in site on the north loop that backed right up to the river, about 25 feet behind our rig, with a beautiful view out our windows of the river looking down towards the Gulf. We saw lots of waterfowl and other animals out our window. There are very few trees and nothing to break the wind coming in off the Gulf, so it can be quite blustery at times.
The park offers free Internet, but we couldn't pick it up on the north loop; we heard it was better on the south loop, especially close to the Nature Center. - PlanoPilot
