Isla Blanca Park on the south side is beautiful and clean, but the northern part, namely, the sand dunes, are very neglected. No signs against littering, and some use it as a garbage dump. My husband and I picked up 50 bags of garbage while visiting, but it is all returning. Need some nice signs like on the south side.

This is our first experience being "Winter Texans" and Isla Blanca Texas State Park has been a super place to hide out from winter weather. Yes, it is windy here. Yes, it is a big RV park, but one can walk directly to a clean beach with friendly seashell hunters strolling along the water. Luckily for retirees, the large crowds... More

We enjoyed being able to fly a kite without interruptions. The scenery is beautiful and it was not crowded the day we were there.

We stayed here for 2 weeks in February. Very nice place, quiet, nice size sights. There are some sights that aren't tiny. Ours was not one of those. People come here for months and lots of the bigger sights are taken by them. Beach is beautiful, close to anything you need. Wifi is rediculously expensive unless you are staying for... More

This beautiful location does not make up for the poor service, reckless grounds keeping and poor management. They weed whack most of the sites and do not take care of which way the dirt and grass fly. Several coaches including ours were plastered down the side with ground debris resulting in paint chips the length of the coach . One... More

Excellent location for beach walking, sunsets, and fishing. Site are just wide enough and the way the roads and sites are laid out, there is some variety. We had a premium site and enjoyed having a wood boardwalk next to the rv, others have small or large concrete pads.

We thoroughly enjoyed watching big ships come and go from the Jetty in Isla Blanca. We got the month pass since we were here for a month - $25 a month - or $10 each time ... BUT if you can prove you're a veteran, the monthly pass is half price! $12.50! Best deal going to watch ships come &... More

Water front sites were like one big asphalt parking lot. No grass or trees. Inland sites are nicer. Not cheap and Wi-Fi expensive. The beach was very nice

This large campground is a county park and shows it. The sites vary from 1/4 acre to not enough room for a picnic table so choose your spot wisely. There is not chance to check out your site options so do some research before signing up at the park office. Isla Blanca is pleasant enough with paved parking lanes, palm... More

A great place to camp. A lot of sites (100s) and well appointed with full hook ups. Fairly large lots for a municipal campground. Good washroom and shower rooms although most sites are used by selfcontained units. On the beach with lots of surf and sand activities within easy walking distance.
