We stayed here for 2 weeks which happened to be during spring break. This park is located away from the main activities. We could hear music until about 1:00 a.m. one time and on Easter weekend during the day for several hours. We didn't find that to be a problem. Getting into and out of the park is very tight. The spaces are close together but are level. If you can get site #1 or one on the other end you will have one open side which is nicer. The staff was very friendly but not very accommodating. We did ask about an empty space on the end but they said it was reserved although it wasn't used when we were there. We really liked the location for bike riding. The birding center is close with a nice boardwalk. The beach is just a short walk from the park and was very enjoyable. The Hilton Garden Inn is a short walk or bike ride. We had a good dinner and breakfast there. The park charges for Wi-Fi, but we were able to use the Convention Center's Wi-Fi across the street. There is a Farmer's Market on Sundays 11:00 to 1:00 about 3 miles north of the park which was great. We had a good time strolling the beach and drinking salty dogs made from the fresh grapefruits purchased at the farmer's market. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is as described by most of the other reviewers. It's biggest negative is that the six month limit is an improper policy for a public facility with only 24 spaces. Allowing people to live here for six months at a time denies the rest of the public from utilizing a public facility. We stayed in the overflow at $15.00 per night with no hookups and were told that it would be at least another week before there was even a chance of anybody leaving, or it could be months. We will not come here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We dry camped for our five night stay, which was fine for our needs on this visit. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Nice access to the beach and directly across the highway from the convention center. Do wish they would take the curves out of the entry and exit driveways, it's a curb scraper for long wheel base motor homes. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This a Cameron county park as well as Isla Blanca Park. Isla Blanca is on the south end of the island, and Andy Bowie is on the north end. This park was a parking lot for people to access the beach, and they turned one half of it into an RV park. It is just a Parking lot with hook-ups at the back of the site, but it is quite and really private. The beach was not very busy on this end of the island. The sites are just over the sand dunes to the beach (about 100 yards) There are 2 bath houses, one for the campers, and the other is for day use. My biggest complaint was the driveway getting into the park was very sharp and with a big rig your tires will rub the curb. This was obviously not designed for use by RV's when it was built. Once inside, we really enjoyed our stay. The park workers clean the beach daily of any sea weed that washes up. We really enjoyed our stay at this park. The water and sand were very beautiful. Lots of things to do around town, Brownsville, Mexico, Port Isabelle lighthouse, etc. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Brand new park. Basically a parking lot with hookups but just over the sand dunes from the Gulf of Mexico. Big shade pavillion with picnic tables between campsites & Gulf. Sewer hookups could have been engineered better. Very nice rangers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
