We really like this county park second time we been here in three months. Planning to winter here 2016. The only knock is the Verizon web signal and the WiFi. We plan on getting a booster for this problem when we return. It looks over Baffin Bay with a pier.
Very friendly people snow birds. Most of the park has concrete site pads our area didn't but there is better views of baffin bay from here. It's the newer end of the park. - JustDon

Played Winter Texan from December to late March. One of the two younger singles among 65-90 year old couples. The other single was 21.
Developed some casual friendships, but most of them gave me no more courtesy than a hello. Lots of cliques especially during meals. I was angrily snarled away from tables several times.
Leadership among the "Winter Texans" controls virtually every activity.
Lots of little people who demand to be King or Queen. I dropped back out of several activities because of attitudes. Even things where I could contribute greatly. I let the little titans have their turf and walked away.
By the end of the three months, I had bitten my tongue to the point of bleeding.
Park Manager was great, Park staff was horrible. Especially the Activities Director. A Witch without a Broom.
Verizon doesn't work there and the park WIFI is a pathetic joke. They try to force you to buy a phone line for DSL. If you can afford to use ATT and have a Hotspot, you'll be fine.
If you are a guy who doesn't fish, doesn't golf, doesn't play poker and doesn't sit around getting drunk, you'll be bored to tears. Most of the activities are for the ladies.
The roads are collapsing, the electrical boxes are very old. No money sucked from the park is being spent to improve it. This is a cash cow for Kleberg County to subsidize the rest of their county.
It was an experience to write a book, but something I will not repeat. - RVWriter

We agree with the last reviewer that this is a hidden gem. We stayed 3 nights and found the park to be amazingly quiet and clean. Our site was paved (oldish) and level. This is a county managed park, and resides within/adjacent to Kaufer-Hubert Memorial Park, which is on Baffin Bay. Lovely area. We would stay here again. - RDR
